(Etruscera, Martius) Consul Cicero Rnenta, Consul for Martius, was quick to respond to the recent statement made by Emperor Venticus of Ares Prime about recent DSS decryptions.
“They’re grasping for legitimacy,” said Consul Rnenta. “They are taking roughly 100 words that were decrytpted and interpolated from an unverified, badly corrupted DSS and turning it into a claim that our greatest legend originated on Ares. It’s not even a very well-supported theory let alone something resembling historical facts. I’m not sure whether that DSS is real history … I’m not sure exactly how old it is … and I’m especially suspect of Solrain dating appearing in something purporting to be Octavius history.
“But if you really want to believe this text fragment — it sounds to us that it describes Ares Prime was a splinter colony from Martius. So to us, this just further strengthens the claim that Emperor Atticus Septus of Martius is the rightful leader of a unified Octavius.”
The Cinatus leadership has, so far, been silent on the DSS decryption or its historical significance.
