Welcome time traveler!
I am Chronos, Grand-master of Time. By entering my mind you have automatically volunteered to become a participant in my challenge.
I will be sending you into the past - it will be up to YOU to answer the 15 questions I ask, correctly.
If you answer them correctly, I will bring you back to the present and will make you historian with the rank of 'Initiate'.
If you fail, I will leave you in the time period where you failed to answer the question...stranded!
There is still time to back away NOW...or do you accept the challenge?
You are Junius Vitellius Calvinus, one of the 5 military tribunes attached to Legio V Alaudae under command of Lucius Nonius Asprenas. During the summer, you have been temporarily stationed at the castra at Haltern in Germania Inferior. It is september 9 A.D. and you are about to return to your legionary base at Mogontiacum (Mainz) when news arrives of the destruction of the XVIIth, XVIIIth and XIXth legion under Varus in the Teutoburger Forest. A few days earlier your superior General Lucius Asprenas left for Mainz with most of the troops, leaving you in command of the remaining troops at Haltern. Will you be able to lead them back to their winterquarters or will you, surrounded by the rebel German tribes, be utterly destroyed?

Hey Urnam. Good to know I'm not the only history buff here ;-) The Chinese warlord game looks good! Let me check it out in the next few days...

Thanks Berka. I see that you are a regular of the site. Any good advice to give me on the people here ;-)
I'm told that you are also the masterbrain behind the Dead Man Walking Zombie game...I played it and it is really, really good (of course I didn't survive). How long did you work on it?

Hi all, I'm Stratego. I've stumbled upon your fine site a week ago and started writing. I'm one of those old Choosing your own Adventure veteran of the 80's. I still have at least 30 of those books in my attic. I used to be a great fan of the Lone Wolf series. I'm a history buff, writer and moderator at Armchair General and boardgame designer. I've always dreamed of writing a series of history related Choose your own Adventure books but always got stuck in a labyrinth of papers and choices...and never succeeded. Now I will try here. First on a small scale though...;-)
