Secundus prepares for battle (Campaign 99)

Secundus was busy conducting the Lustratio Exercitatio, a religious ceremony of the Legions, purifying the standards with perfumes and garlands, when he received word from Flaccus. Flaccus had also sent word to Rome to inform them of his plight, so Secundus would be forced to send aid to his beleaguered tiny army.

Secundus, however, sent word to Flaccus to raise new troops by way of the tribes in the surrounding area, as he was too far away to assist him. Flaccus would have to look to Barbarian help on the fields of Dalmatia.
