I JOINED NOW WHAT?
If you join with no Roman Reenacting experiance or equipment you do so as a Volone. To get to the next step you will need the Tirone kit. As a Tirone you will be expected to complete all of the training mentioned below as well as the Probatus kit to become Probatus, a trained recruit.
Upon becoming Probatus and swearing allegiance to the Emperor a new recruit would be given the Stigmata Puncta Signorum, a Tatoo/Brand with the Legions and Emperors name. The next step to becoming a Legionary requires completing the Basic Legionary kit. If you join as a Veteranus, a trained and experienced Roman Reenactor, just keep updated to your Cohorts/Groups message board or website.
