Pleaderdocarex of the Marcomanni (Campaign 100)
The mighty Pleaderdocarex of the Marcomanni answers Flaccus's plea for help and gathers a huge force on the outskirts of Noricum. They travel with amazing speed down through Pannonia to find the tiny Roman army and their numbers cause much rejoicing in the Roman camp. Flaccus's many years under the Eagles have taught him one thing though, numbers do not guaranty victories. He knows that although his army now looks impressive, it will be going against the full might of a Roman field army with all it's discipline and training. Flaccus lets the men carry on rejoicing to raise moral, but knows inside it is far too soon to be celebrating.
