The story: On October 29, 118 A.D. in Vasio, the oracles foretold a dark tale of assassination in the city. But who would murder this former legionnaire turned merchant named Silenius? Who would be mad enough to commit such a crime in the city's thermal baths? And why would he attack this honest citizen? Join the investigation and help us solve this mystery!
