Something New Coming Soon!

The ROMA Management Team is working on a brand new feature for ROMA and its Citizens. We can't tell you much about it yet, but we predict:
  1. It will bring a great new dimension to your time in ROMA.
  2. It will be both fun and social.
  3. It will give you a lot to brag about.
  4. It will reward those most active in the estate.
  5. It will make even more things to see and do in ROMA.
  6. It will be a great way to make new friends.
  7. Other ancient sims will eventually shamelessly copy it from us (as always) ;)
So watch this space for big news soon!

August ROMA Festivals

Saturday 15th August

9am - Nemoralia Ritual @ Diana's shrine in Transtiberim
This month's festivals begin with a ritual for Diana & Trivia (Hecate, to you Greeks) honouring these Goddesses of the wild and the darkness. Please join us in celebrating the wild side of life, the natural world, and the mysteries of existence!

11am - Nemoralia Treasure Hunt
Diana and Trivia have scattered treasure across ROMA for Their faithful worshippers to find! Come join us in seeking to discover the hidden bounty! The hunt will take place across 3 sims: ROMA, ROMA Subura, and ROMA Transtiberim. Finding yourself in need of a few Linden? Perhaps the Goddesses will provide! Come hunt with us and fill your purses!
Location: ROMA sim

1pm - Dianic Ritual for the Amazons @ Subura Temple
A ritual especially for the Amazons of our Legion, to affirm and connect with their Patron Goddess, Diana - but all are welcome! Come support the Amazons and celebrate with them as they are blessed by Their Goddess!
Location: ROMA Subura sim

3pm - Vinalia Rustica Wine Celebration
The ancient Vinalia Rustica was a celebration of the grape and the fruits of the Earth - during this festival, the alcoholic consumption was intense and Roman women were supervised and given less alcoholic drinks to prevent them from public drunkness. But never fear - ROMA never waters down it's drinks! So drink and dance with us as we praise the gifts of the grape!
Location: ROMA Transtiberim sim


Sunday 16th August

9am - Vulcanalia Ritual @ the Volcano in ROMA
Our second day of festivals begins with a ritual to honour Vulcan, the God of the Forge, and asking His blessing on all our crafts. Since He was also the God of Volcanos and fire, we will celebrate His blessings and protection after the rite with a dip in the Lake of Fire!
Location: ROMA sim

9:30am - Vulcan's Pool Party @ the Volcano in ROMA
Are you brave enough to take a swim in Vulcan's personal pool? Then dive into our lava lake and give new meaning to the term "taking a hot bath"! There will be food, wine, and good company as we splash about in our "heated pool" and celebrate the last warm days of summer.
Location: ROMA sim

Our very own mastersmith Enamabala Towradgi will be giving a class on swordsmithing in SL in honour of the Master of Smiths, Vulcan. Come learn how the Romans crafted their weapons and create your own blades under Enama's expert tutoring. All are welcome, regardless of building skill-level!
