We might want to add a note to the article for Romulus the Warshade to redirect people to the info for Romulus Augustus in the event that they're searching for the word "Romulus". --Eabrace 23:15, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Done - Snorii 14:01, 21 May 2008 (UTC)


Will add some screenshots of things like the colossi production facility and the final cutscene later. --Eabrace 14:26, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

As promised:

Imperious TF Colossi.jpg Imperious TF Romulus.jpg Imperious TF Nictus Romulus.jpg

And one more of Romulus in his dark armor.

Romulus Augustus (Nictus).jpg

I think he has the coolest looking armor, evah!  :D - Snorii 14:02, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
I have to agree. When I saw that armor I thought, "We wantsss it. . ." --Eabrace 14:12, 22 May 2008 (UTC)


It is easy to move, but we should probably take out "the" from the article name. The only task force beginning with The is The Lady Grey Task Force, but her name is The Lady Grey. - Snorii 20:08, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Whoops. Yeah, I modeled Imperious' entry on Lady Grey when I created it and the The didn't even click as it being part of her name rather than the convention for the TF. Thanks for catching. Should probably be changed in the linking from the Imperious entry too. Scuzzbopper 20:33, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
Easy change since the article didn't actually exist yet. I just moved the talk page to the appropriate location. --Eabrace 21:31, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Roman Versions

I was curious if I missed any others, but we have at least three Roman versions of the Freedom Phalanx. - Snorii 20:51, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

Imperious - Statesman
Daedalus - Positron
Sister Solaris - Sister Psyche

Wow. How did I miss the Solaris/Psyche parallel? --Eabrace 21:48, 20 May 2008 (UTC)
Be sure to watch Samuraiko's Issue 12 Trailer (top right) for some great shots of these and others. - Snorii 15:49, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
After going back and doing the TF again, I believe they're the only ones. And thanks for mentioning my trailer! Seems a lot of people didn't catch the Sister Psyche reference. - Johanna Sinclair 15:22, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Few comments

I got a good start on the article and added a lot of info (Thanks Eabrace), still lots to add especially the dialog listed below. I had to run to work this morning so I only had time to put in a little more of the mission dialog.

Were there three different Sybils on that first mission not including the hostages? I got a little disoriented and wasn't sure if I was talking to the same ones or not. Seems like the first one was outside the cave.

I noticed on my screenshots that a couple of the Generals were Elite Bosses on the second to last mission. I like giving an Elite Boss their own page, but we may be duplicating the Longbow Ballista problem if we do that.

I think I have a screenshot of his info, but I think Requiem was aligned with the Fifth Column on the third mission, I need to double check that.

Need to see if the Altar on the first mission is an object with a description.

Cheers - Snorii 14:00, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

99.44% sure that the Altar was NOT an object. I would have caught that when I was extracting demo data if it were. Scuzzbopper 14:17, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
There was one Sybil immediately after stepping of the boat that gave us the key to get into the temple. There was another in the temple standing at the exit that gave us the key after rescuing all of her sisters. Those are the only two non-hostages I remember.
Yeah, I'm afraid you'd be right about the Generals/Ballista problem. Did you happen to capture the info on the Elite Bosses? Maybe they should be listed as named enemies and some base name for the EB class like Cimeroran General should be listed in the faction article.
I didn't even think to check Requiem's faction when we were beating on him. --Eabrace 14:12, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Requiem was 5th Column, I checked last night.
I have a lot of the General's info boxes, and most say Elite Boss. I thought a couple were just bosses, but I need to double check. The problem is that I don't have all the generals since there are so many of them scattered over two missions.
As for the non-hostage Sybils, I think you are right on there just being two. - Snorii 14:58, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

New Question - Do we know who/what is talking to Romulus Augustus during the cutscene? I didn't see anything listed in my NPC chat for that conversation. - Snorii 14:58, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

The name is just given as "Nictus". The entity does have a unique model name -- Nictus_RomulusTransformation -- which I need to splice into an edit to see if it looks like anything, since it's "off screen" the whole time, but I suspect it may just be an invisible model. It gets deleted right after Romulus says "The champions shall be a feast laid before me!" so it never appears "outside" the cut scene. Scuzzbopper 15:34, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
I assumed the voice was the Nictus Romulus is about to become host to. It goes into Romulus as dark lightning, then the two become one.--GreyDog 17:06, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
That makes sense, I kind of unfairly dismiss the Nictus and just sort of assumed that it was a human(like) person talking to Romulus Augustus. - Snorii 18:21, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
I was reading Romulus Augustus's description today, and it reads, "... Now, Romulus sides with the Nictus and other more questionable forces to secure his tyrannical rule over Cimerora." I wonder what they mean by "other questionable forces" and they aren't talking about Nictus. :-O - Snorii 03:28, 23 May 2008 (UTC)


Just taking notes on the text I copied from the chat window post-TF for the moment. Looks like the first couple of missions might have already been clipped in the buffer of my global tab when I grabbed the first /copychat, but I captured some of that dialog in screenshots and will add that in later. --Eabrace 14:26, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Imperious: The dark ones, the ones you called the Nictus, have infested the catacombs beneath this land. They seem to thrive from large black shadow crystals hidden within those tunnels. I believe this should be our next assault.

I had heard rumors of these dark ones in the caves while I was still in power. I sent Romulus and a contingent of men to investigate. Only Romulus returned, cut and beaten, claiming he had faced a beast from Hades.

If I only knew then what I know now, that the cuts on Romulus were from my own men trying to defend themselves against that traitor!

I have spoken with Daedalus, my prized crafter, and it is his belief that if you destroy the shadow crystals, you will destroy the ability of the dark ones to survive in this realm.

Romulus is rallying the full force of his army to assault your own time.

He plans to use to Incarnates from your time to awaken two of his giant colossi. Perhaps you have heard of these men. They go by the names Statesman and Lord Recluse. The colossi are being crafted in the mountains of Vespillos Pass.

The army waits in Vespillos Pass for a ship that will take them to your time. From there, they plan to capture these two men, bring them back here, and wake the sleeping giants.

you do not want this to happen, whatever your allegiance is to these two Incarnates. I have seen, first-hand, the devastation left behind by the forces of Romulus. I have called for help on this task.

You will be joined by my prized artisan, Deadalus. He will assist you in your journey up the pass to the colossi.

Requiem's Journal
After you defeat Requiem, you pull from him a small black journal. Reading through it you find it is entirely in some sort of code that only he can understand. Just as you think you're not going to get anything out of him, Requiem begins to talk...

I have come across time itself to this land. Our temporal strongholds are growing even now as you stand here gloating. You think you have won, but that is only because you are ignorant to my plans.

I came here to establish another stronghold in Cimerora. This cradle of power is to be my training ground for recruits. The Cimerorans are the best fighters time has ever seen. They shall be mine.

Nothing you can do now or later will ever stop me.

With those words, Requiem teleports away to an unknown location.

-->"Reclaim Cimerora" briefing:

Imperious: Before you arrived, I had hoped that I would be able to retake my own city, but that had not been the case. Since your arrival, you have systematically removed one obstacle after another. Now only a single block remains before this land is once again returned to its rightful ruler.

I need your help and you have proven that, above all, you are the ones to help me.

Gather your forces; it is time to reclaim the city! The time for subtlety is no more! Now we storm the gates!

I will be joining you on this assault. It is my home; if anyone should be by your side, it should be me.

But I have some grave news for you. It would appear that somehow Romulus survived your battle at Vespillos Pass. He is guarded by his entire remaining army. The battle will be a fierce one, but I promise you, it will end with Romulus tasting my blade one inch at a time.

-->Another mysterious letter

Icon clue generic.png
Dear Character...
While time traveling into the past, you visit Cimerora and in a crate you find a hand written letter address to Character...

Did you think that I wouldn't find you? You were sly using an Aspect of the Pillar that wasn't linked to Ouroboros. Did you ever stop to think where Mantague may have aquired that crystal? Or how?

I apologize. This letter was not meant for harsh words of recriminations. I merely meant to remind you that I can find you...anytime, anyplace, anywhere. That is all.

Who am I? I know you have been asking yourself that question for a time now. Am I Requiem? Am I Silos? Am, perhaps? You may even be asking yourself which one of those people I am. Have you ever met Praetorian Earth Requiem? He doesn't go by that name, of course, in case you were wondering. Have you, perchance, met the shadow version of yourself? What about the version of Mender Silos from Faathim's reality?

It is a paradox.

Try not to think about it.

But again, my train of thought wanders. I'm writing to tell you that, as surprising as it might sound, Mender Silos and his time travelling cohorts are actually succeeding in delaying the coming storm. Note, I didn't say preventing. There is still hope.

Because of their actions, and likely yours as well, it may be sometime before I can truly extend my hand to you in kinship. There is other work in other places for us to do. As much as I enjoy these letters, I'm sure you will understand that we have more pressing matters to attend. So, for now, I bid you farewell.

As always, look for me in the crystal.

-->"Reclaim Cimerora" found clue and objective completion messages

You've found a hand written letter addressed to Character.

You've defeated Romulus Augustus.

You have recaptured Castellum Quarter, the inner city of Cimerora. In doing so, you've defeated over 300 of Romulus's men and Romulus himself.


Time's Arrow

You look down at the broken helm of your enemy and are reminded of the events you've come to know as. . .

Time's Arrow

Romulus Augustus was once the tyrannical emperor of a land called Cimerora. He took the throne from Imperious, the rightful leader, through the help of the 5th Column and the Nictus.

In exchange for their support, Romulus gave his new subjects to the 5th Column and the Nictus to do with what they would. This group's end goal was to establish temporal strongholds thoughout time. Their primary assault was to be on Paragon City and the Rogue Isles. They had built giant colossi that could only be powered by what they called Incarnates. The two Incarnates they had in mind were Statesman and Lord Recluse. If these colossi were brought to life, there would be nothing that would stop them from taking over all of time.

You arrived to staging ground just as Romulus Augustus joined with the Nictus. The combined power was more than you had ever faced in a single person. Romulus fought with all the dark forces of the Nictus and, in the end, you wondered what forces must have been coursing through your veins to stop him.


Could someone please post their strategy ASAP? A lot of people are complaining about spending a long time on this and failing, and since its a new TF they need help right away (I still haven't gotten around to running it). --BustermanZero 02:43, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Hmm. . . Strategy. . . Well, we first cleared all of the goons around the courtyard. Then we cleaned off the elevated area with all the troops standing around. Then we pulled each of the groups of soldiers to the sides of Romulus.
When we attacked Romulus, we watched to see which of the three Nictus (Nicti?) popped off the heal. (It was on the right for us. I've read on the boards where someone said it was on the left, so observation is apparently the key.) We then shifted to attack the healing Nictus, targeting through one main targeter. We took out the healing Nictus and then focused on each of the others one by one. We made sure to take everything else out before turning toward Romulus. If a load of new Nictus spawned, we took them out.
The whole time we had a Rad debuffing and I was spamming Twilight Grasp (less for the heal, more for the little bit of extra -Regen.) It took a while, but once we had the three Nictus AVs out of the picture, Romulus seemed like a pushover. Had I realized how little a threat he'd pose on his own, I would have nailed him with the debuff in Howling Twilight, too.
I will say that the disorient attack that would hit every now and again was a bit annoying, but it wasn't fatal in any way. --Eabrace 14:12, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
I ran the TF with a group of 50 levels, unfortunately we had no RAD Defender but a Shivan helped out a lot, and we pretty much followed this same strategy. Once we figured out which Nictus was the "healer" we concentrated our efforts on it while our Tank held Romulus' Aggro. I have to agree that the Nictus AVs proved to much more of a challenge that Romulus himself.
We managed to finish in around 2 and a half hours and I have heard numerous people saying they did the same so unless there are groups going a lot long than that I'd say that's about the average. One comment I did hear as we completed the TF was the Katie TF in Croatoa paid off better. Regardless I earned both the TF badge and the Centurion which was a forgone conclusion when several missions require you to defeat 100 or more of the Cimeroran Traitors to complete that portion of the TF. (LOL) why does this figure? I spend hours hunting down 333 Ghosts in Croatoa for a badge and there are a total of 2 door missions that involve them but in Cimerora where the ONLY villain group, at the moment, seems to be those "traitors" you can get the badge for only 100 and by the end of the TF you have probably defeated 5-6 times that many. Taxibot Sara2.0 15:11, 22 May 2008 (UTC)Taxibot Sara2.0
That sounds about right on the elapsed time. Our run time was 2:09. --Eabrace 15:47, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
I ran a failed attempt on Test but if people hadn't dropped we'd have been in the two and a half hour range. Have they fixed Romulus' AI in the third mission or does he still run around randomly and jump out of range for no discernible reason? --Rantmo 16:02, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

First run through on live for me. 1h 45 mins. No major AI aggro issues with the AVs, and just brute forced through the Nealing Nictus with a high damamge team. No fancy pulling or speration was needed. The 3rd mission map is still incredibly laggy as you mve the fight into the ravine and by the bridges. Im tempted to have a flier spawn the map in advance, to see if this makes any difference. Catwhoorg 12:01, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
Done it twice now, similar strategies both times albeit with very different groups. Anyone with TP foe ganks away the healers and pounds them to dust. Second mission - hit the mobs around the cysts first, then the cysts, then immediately turn back and deal with the ambush. Third mission - brute force up the mountain, and having at least two players with Nova-ish power to blast the robots off you when they activate while taking out the computer. Fourth mission - much like the first two, but if you've got two tanks, let them keep the Nictus essences tied up while EVERYONE else goes after Romulus. First TF had no healers, second TF had no debuffers, both TFs had a mix of folks who'd done the TF and others who hadn't. (First TF took 3 hours coz I was filming, second TF took 2 hours.) -- Johanna Sinclair 15:28, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

in regards to the red-comment on the article - my lvl 50 stone/stone/earth tank can survive the self-rez mezz of rom everytime (done it about 5/6 times with dusti so far), while in grantie and rooted. i am slotted with several IO sets, some that give defences to various attack types (inc psi), so i don't know if they are the reason. but i've certainly seen everyone but rooted granite users be mezzed by the self-rez -- DM Yarrow 16:52, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Granite has mez resists built into it, and so does rooted, which isn't a good way of finding out just how high Romulus' selfrez mag is, unfortunately. However, what are the chances of a tanker not using a tier9 against Romulus, with the exception of Dark and Fire Tankers?  :D Sera404 20:55, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Unless you can take down Romulus four times in under 180 seconds, the odds are pretty good that your tier 9 will be down for at least one of those times he pops back up. That being said, I think I can find the mag when I get home. --Eabrace 23:04, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
Never been caught out yet (on a tank anyway :P ), but i was commenting on the stragey aspect: i.e. while everyone runs off a rooted/granite (and poss other tanks(dunno)) can stay there and survive the self-rez mez and get back to tanking/taunting rom straight away. Oh and he's never gone down inside of 5 mins (apart form the once) on any ITF's i've tanked, and this has been the same for me on heroic, rugged and invnic settings (the non mezed by self-rez. -- DM Yarrow 16:52, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Follow-up: Checking in-game, I believe the rez power is Extra Lives, but it doesn't list a mez component (you can view the details with [Extra Lives]). So, there must be something else that fires off causing the mez effect. Still digging. --Eabrace 00:05, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
Here we go. The power that stuns is Death Throw. The in-game info doesn't show the stun, but if you check at Red Tomax, you'll see that it's a 15.0000 mag stun. (Ignore the part in parenthesis at the end that says mag 12. I don't think it interprets the numbers quite right if you pull up data on anything that it doesn't recognize as a valid AT.) --Eabrace 00:28, 4 September 2008 (UTC)
So is it actually Rom who's using this power, or the Nictus essences? I'll reword it as necessary depending on whoever's using the powers. Sera404 08:28, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Level Range

Didnt change anything except put in that it is Co-Op and that the level Range is 35-50, just thought that little part was a important cuz i know i look at task force pages more than half the time to see the level range. (: ~~Stevofloyd~~

Thanks for adding that, I wasn't sure what the low end was for the range. - Snorii 13:24, 23 May 2008 (UTC)


In the Lore AMA, there is a question referencing dialog in the ITF that mentions Atlantis. The answer indicates that said dialog shouldn't be there (since Atlantis doesn't exist in the CoH universe) but I wanted to see the dialog, and it isn't here. So far as I can tell, there also seems to be a lot of missing minion dialog from the latter parts of this task force. Is that the case? Some of it is in this discussion page, and should probably be added if it's complete enough. Felderburg 21:43, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
