New leadership

This morning, I got a little confused when I received an email asking me to validate the application of a citizen to become a member of the Collegium Peregrinatorum. Was I co-leader of the Collegium?!? After an edict, a veto, an intercessio and a withdrawal, I thought there will be new elections once the Senate had defined the Collegia. Well, I got it wrong and the Edictum Praeturae from C. Cispius Laevus (here: is still valid: it seems I’m co-leader of this Collegium.

If so and if no magistrate decides something else in the meantime, I’m going to prepare a draft of new bylaws and submit it to the members of the Collegium for approval.

As a reminder, this Collegium has been created for travelers who wants to share their experience and for people willing to travel and asking for tips and advices. I think it should also be open to discussions about ancient travelers and geography. If you have any idea for the Collegium, please let us know.

Please feel free to join the Collegium, to begin topics and to participate!

Congratulations to your appointment, magister!

I think this collegium can become extremely important for the Republic.
There was this idea of building a temple and a community center in Rome that could be visited by the citizens of our Republic andorganize courses and events.
This would require a huge investment first.

But their is an easier solution. We could use existing facilities. And here is were the Collegium Peregrinatorum comes in. The Collegium could act as a travel agency. It could organize one or two week courses, make deals with hotels and setup programs for visits of historical sites. There in a restaurant in Pompeii that offers food Roman style in a triclinium, i.e. you eat lying on a bed. This could be part of the program.
Furthermore visits including accommodation at the new temple in Sarmatia could be organized.
Acting as a travel agency this Collegium could become something really big.

Salve Lupus,

I think I've already read something about this travel agency idea. It was maybe you...
Sounds to me quite ambitious but if we build a temple, we can certainly set up a travel agency!
Hopefully a few citizens of Rome and Sarmatia will join and help us.

We do not need to wait until we build our own temple. There are already temples there, a new one in Sarmatia and the ruins in Rome. We only need to organize trips for our citizens there. This is why we need a kind of travel agency.
If this collegium is supposed to do this, then we have to consider it in the bylaws. They need to be less democratic and more like a corporation.
