New Volcano Erupts in ROMA

In the early hours of this morning a large volcano appeared at the eastern end of the Gardens of Maecenas. It continues to erupt, sending out a massive cloud of fire and ash every 15 minutes.

Priests of ROMA immediately erected a small altar to Vulcan nearby. The god seems to have been placated and no further damage to ROMA is expected. In fact, by honoring the god at the altar, he rewards the supplicant with a pyroclastic lightshow (best seen at night).

The Prefect ordered the erection of a containment pool for the spewing lava. It now serves as a handy place to obtain your own ROMA lava lamp for your house.
