I'll start this off with a quote from OvaltinePatrol on the Discord:
I've noticed this trend of fanon ghettos. I'm curious as to why people would come to a wiki that explicitly operates under the concert of a shared setting, only to ignore the content of other users.
For some instances in the past, it can simply be put down to a failure to read the rules or anything else, and those writers usually leave in short order. But it happens with people who stick around too.
There is a reason why; in fact, there are four that I can think of immediately. These are based on my observations of the site and its people in action, interactions with other members and my own experience running other fanon wikis.

There's no civil law. There aren't even the ceremonial trappings of Roman society. Legates don't receive triumphs following a victory. No one in the Legion retires to a villa in Sedona. Soldiers in Caesar's Legion don't have personal freedom. They "get" to fight and die for Caesar. It's not a volunteer military, though many legionaries are born or raised into it, so they are effectively brainwashed. It's essentially a Roman legion with only the very top commander having any connection to the "source" culture, the rest being indoctrinated conscripts from cultures that were…Read more >
