No more counter-bribes are possible, so let’s see what the fates decide.
Junius was the particular focus of Fabius’ recent parties. He was lavished with many gifts, too valuable even for his status as a former consul, and many of his characteristics and accomplishments were lauded in front of Fabius’ friends.
Fabius was no blushing ingenuus though: when the offer came to join the Eastern Grain Company he was hardly surprised. Nor did the other factions fail to notice what was going on. Fabius received some quiet words (and bribes, it’s rumoured) from the Pontifex Maximus himself to dissuade him from switching his allegiance. In the end though, his venal nature came to the fore. He had plenty of money now, but think what he could do with the sort of budget the grain magnates offered.
Roll was a 5, Fabius joins the Eastern Grain Company.
His personal treasury is now 27 talents.
@Juan_Raigada: any further actions?
