Operative, the power structure of Rome was very complex. We suggest that you satisfy Caecilius in particular with reference to the office of praetor. As always using your knowledge of Roman culture will yield LP boosts.
Operative, this immersion (6.1b) presents an opportunity to make an important choice about the way your team’s Recentius or Recentia develops. As you know, as a lead operative your own operative dossier shapes the capabilities of your team’s Recentius/a; now, though, each team must make a decision for the Recentius/a him or her self. Choosing a profession by itself allows you an opportunity to unlock LP bonuses in a wide variety of situations. Choosing a profession that goes well with your worldview can unlock even higher LP bonuses, once you do the work of fully learning how your profession and your worldview work together. In addition, each of the professions has been programmed in the TSTT to give a special benefit in the immersion-space. When your team has chosen a profession, be sure to lock in your decision in your Recentius sheet under the 'ars' section.
The professions available to you are:
- mīlēs (grants a greater chance of success when using any arma)
- ōrātor (able to confuse multiple opponents by using rhetoric)
- historicus (able to make a special call to TSTT operations for extra information about the historical significence of anything inside of the TSTT)
- poēta (able to make use of perfect quotations from Latin poetry to convince a character to do something)
- agricola (bonus funding each mission)
