You can tell that despite the fact that Decimus is in control, that he still holds some level of fear and respect for Maxus, and that he's going to listen even though Maxus is his subordinate.

In military talk this would be an interdiction strike. An assault that is intended to interrupt the enemies activity and force then to react to the new threat.

The general has gotten inside the emperor's decision cycle and forced him to stop his previous intent and deal with the general. By cutting him off each time he is forcing the emperor to agree with him.

Well played general, well played.
Tokyo Rose 13th Dec 2012, 9:59 PM edit delete reply

I loved having Maxus interrupt Decimus in every sentence that tried to crawl out of his drooling face hole. "Fuck you, a grownup is talking."

That dude is no nonesense :0 - great page!
Centcomm 13th Dec 2012, 10:01 PM edit delete reply

yep zero tolerance..

[If Decimus doesn't get with the program
right soon, he will find himself in a 'crappy hamper'!]

This wallpaper has a more definite opinion about things.

heheh you bet!

Armor or no, Deck is gonna be in a world of hurt. Maxus looks like he could crush a tank with his bare hands. He's genegineered, right? Who designed him, I wonder.
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 7:12 AM edit delete reply

Max was created by the church of Genetic Purity as a gladiator, he did so with distinction and honor. he is a "Trans-human" and is far stronger and moer durable than a normal human. and yes he can bench press engine blocks. :D

Grandfather Axinian has a large family in many corners of Nova Roman society.
Death2Bravo 14th Dec 2012, 2:20 AM edit delete reply

You can beat up those smaller but how does it feel to be on the receiving end?
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 7:12 AM edit delete reply

hehehe not so good I think !
creamygnome 14th Dec 2012, 3:24 AM edit delete reply

Please no armor please no armor!
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 7:12 AM edit delete reply

grins ...
Draginbeard 14th Dec 2012, 4:39 AM edit delete reply

So Max is going to put the prince through his paces... This ought to be more distracting than any paperwork Kali could devise!
cattservant 14th Dec 2012, 5:58 AM edit delete reply

And then if Decimus can still raise his flag,
He will be way too sore to wave it around for quite some time!
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 7:13 AM edit delete reply

remember what Max told Acantha?
cattservant 14th Dec 2012, 6:03 AM edit delete reply

It occurs to me
That our rescued damsel in distress
Must be having a very warm moment...
(Just look at that expressive face!)
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 7:13 AM edit delete reply

hehe shes REALLY happy Max happened to be there .. REALLY happy!
Mister Black 14th Dec 2012, 6:49 AM edit delete reply

Looks like somebody's scheduled for a session of wall-to-wall counseling...
Draginbeard 14th Dec 2012, 6:58 AM edit delete reply

I think they used to call it 'Sword-point' diplomacy.
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 7:14 AM edit delete reply

HEE! to both black and Dagin ! :D
wright1 14th Dec 2012, 9:02 AM edit delete reply
"Wall to wall counseling" is my new favorite euphemism; thanks, Black!

And yeah, what an asset Maxus is: a well-honed person in all senses. With the mess his city is in, he's badly needed. Hope he survives what's coming.
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 10:06 AM edit delete reply

me too!
Mister Black 15th Dec 2012, 10:41 AM edit delete reply

Glad you like it, but I can't take credit for it...I picked that little euphemism (among others) up from my dad...after 30 years wearing sergeant's stripes, he had some really creative ones :-D
jas 14th Dec 2012, 9:02 AM edit delete reply

I feel like Maxus just went all Mr. T on Deck, just in a more civil tone...but you could add "fool!" to the end of each Maxus sentence and it would still work just fine. ;)
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 10:06 AM edit delete reply

hahah I think your right! :D

Maxus : faceplam..
Hornet 14th Dec 2012, 10:01 AM edit delete reply
This type of training session has usually been the most informative for noblity throughout history. Presumatively due to to lack of consideration for rank.
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 10:09 AM edit delete reply

yes it has :D this is gonna be good!

hehe I think you will like what happens next ..
Dragonrider 14th Dec 2012, 5:28 PM edit delete reply

Something I wonder here, Maximus was constructed to be a Gladiator however; he is a master of Chess, well read, educated in tactics, leadership skills and Diplomacy. Something here doesn't add up a Gladiator should not have the "soft" skill sets he has. Why does he have them, who programed them in and why? The more I see this guy the more questions arise.
Dragonrider 14th Dec 2012, 5:29 PM edit delete reply

PS your line wrap doesn't work both lines that end with and split the word.
Centcomm 14th Dec 2012, 5:46 PM edit delete reply

Ive added a bit of code that should break long single words now..
Tokyo Rose 14th Dec 2012, 5:46 PM edit delete reply

He was engineered to enhance physical traits, but there was no attempt to de-emphasize mental ones. Successful gladiators are basically sports superstars, so he had the clout to request educational materials and other diversions even while he was still a slave. He's been a free man for 17 years now, and he's been putting his time to very good use.
Mister Black 15th Dec 2012, 10:47 AM edit delete reply

Why wouldn't a gladiator know something about tactics, at least on the 'small unit' scale? Not all matches were one-on-one. Likewise, living among a group of trained and well-conditioned killers, I can easily see someone learning at least a rough form of diplomacy, as well as leadership skills. I'd be more surprised if he lacked those skills than if he had them, and he's had several years of 'civilian life' living among the Upper Crust (tm) to polish said skills.
cattservant 16th Dec 2012, 4:07 AM edit delete reply

Besides, he just naturally inspires the desire in others to get along with him....
Thomas 18th Apr 2014, 12:06 PM edit delete reply
Uh if Maxus has this much authority to order the imperator around how did they get to this point anyway? Deci from what we've seen seems like he is much more likely to simply order maxus killed.
