Lucullus and Polus, along with most of the II Augusta have been moved down to the staging ground at Richborough Rutupiae. Here they will board the transports that will ferry them to Gaul. They have spent the last three days since their arrival expanding the exsisting fortifications, in preperation for the huge invasion force that will be needed for such a venture. The two brothers are looking forward to seeing their home country again and their spirits are high. It was while on sentry duty again that they got their first glimpse of their new Emperor......they weren't very impressed!
