Why did you start an AmA, if you couldn't answer anything?

marriott813 karma2014-12-13 17:50:43 UTC
The reason I didn't was because we have had over 1,000 people in today, more than expected so have been rushed off my feet

Since you are probably more knowledgeable than me on making Roman soldiers look "authentic", could you tell me what kind of device you're using for your AMA? Were Roman soldiers mostly Android or iPhone users?
marriott813 karma2014-12-13 17:52:35 UTC
The Roman empire was more like apple, Dominating everything, But android is much more technical like the Romans too.. so 50/50

How did you get that "job"? What should I do if I wanted to do something similiar?
marriott813 karma2014-12-13 17:52:07 UTC
I got this job by volunteering when I was 14, after two years they started paying me to do so, after that it just went from there, I have been a gladiator, a soldier, a slave, an emperor lots of different things

What is bread cheese?
marriott812 karma2014-12-13 17:53:32 UTC
its when a phone you post it off decides to miss punctuation.. I think it would be a nice thing tho having cheese as bread
ROKandHARDPLACE14 karma2014-12-13 13:16:14 UTC
How much are you being paid? How long do you have to stay there?
marriott8125 karma2014-12-13 13:18:09 UTC
It's something like £11 and hour, and eight hours including lunch but I am wondering around a little to watch the gladiator fights as well
Tallest_Waldo12 karma2014-12-13 15:15:12 UTC
Jesus Chr Jupiter's balls, that sounds like my kind of gig. Do you get to participate in any of the fights or physical simulations? Where can I get tickets to attend such an event?
marriott812 karma2014-12-13 17:54:24 UTC
We fight a lot, amongst ourselves and for shows, we had gladiators today but I have been elsewhere so didn't get a chance to train, I will see if I can track you down the video of us

Do the Christians get the same deal with wine and bread ?

What /u/asphaltdragon said
thekingofeggplants10 karma2014-12-13 13:47:51 UTC
Is it real wine your drinking?
marriott812 karma2014-12-13 17:55:27 UTC
Discovered that it was real about half way through, not complaining tho usually its mulled wine.
Manofpesto1 karma2014-12-13 18:12:06 UTC
It's been mixed with spices and warmed with a hot poker?
marriott811 karma2014-12-13 18:23:47 UTC
haha the mulled wine we make is usually spices and warmed on a fire we build
noctrnalsymphony8 karma2014-12-13 15:32:07 UTC
How many varieties of cheese?
Is it regular modern wine, or did they make something that resembles what a period Roman soldier would have?
Are you a Praetorian?
marriott811 karma2014-12-13 17:56:59 UTC
I should be a Praetorian as I am 6ft 7, however I was a Medicus (Dr) today. It was regular modern wine but hidden in pottery and the wine was strong Welsh cheddar
Jpgesus6 karma2014-12-13 15:10:57 UTC
How badass does it feel to be dressed as a roman soldier eating bread?
marriott815 karma2014-12-13 17:55:08 UTC
on a scale of 1-10, 11. I walked out of the museum and down the road to get a sandwich for lunch in full costume, group of kids thought about it but with me being 6ft 7 and fully armed they thought better of it.
Jpgesus2 karma2014-12-13 17:59:53 UTC
I envy you.
marriott812 karma2014-12-13 18:23:07 UTC
haha thanks, I was wearing a pink hat too so they must have been really wanting too
secondphase5 karma2014-12-13 16:15:46 UTC
Let's talk Carthage. I'm of the opinion they are no longer a threat to the republic, but my buddy Quintus tells me that he thinks they may be building a fleet to sail north. I think the odds are about XXV to IIV against that, but he seems to know something. I have a friend in one of the Northern legions who says they may March all the way around the Alps, but that's just crazy talk.
What do you think?
marriott811 karma2014-12-13 17:56:08 UTC
Crazy.. He would never get the elephants around the alps! Besides our legions will crush them into the dust.. my buddy scippio says so.
Poseidon-Hermes3 karma2014-12-13 16:10:29 UTC
How did this get to my front page when you've only answered one question?
marriott811 karma2014-12-13 17:57:09 UTC
Bloody Romans.. Invading everwhere
My_god_a_dinosaur3 karma2014-12-13 16:09:23 UTC
You're partaking in a murder mystery? What's the mystery?
marriott813 karma2014-12-13 17:58:27 UTC
Someone had been stabbed, I was the Dr who attended him
Roundsquash2 karma2014-12-13 15:47:14 UTC
I'd like to know about the murder mystery. What's it about?
marriott812 karma2014-12-13 17:59:00 UTC
Someone had been murdered, sending people on a trial to find out who it was, we do it every year however there was 2 killers this year, he had been poisoned then someone else stabbed him
Roundsquash1 karma2014-12-13 18:42:00 UTC
Ohmygod. That's brutal for the guy who died O.o
marriott812 karma2014-12-13 18:46:43 UTC
Yea haha, the guy who did it had his slave "discover" the body after he had stabbed him on the toilet
bax1012 karma2014-12-13 15:47:59 UTC
Reddit on the job? So you are holding a cell phone while working? Like I see everywhere in the world.
marriott811 karma2014-12-13 17:57:20 UTC
No one was about :P
dwimber2 karma2014-12-13 15:53:53 UTC
Aside from the food, what else is done during a saturnalia festival?
marriott811 karma2014-12-13 17:58:13 UTC
Celebrations of light, so candles are lit, gladiator contests, lots of food, giving of golden apples and gifts, decoration of trees in the garden and slaves are swapped with masters
