The roman fort is found in the lower parts of the dungeon off to the right side of the map, in a similar fashion to the Gnome Mines. It is however a much harder feature of the dungeon to conquer. There are guards at the entrance who warn the player to stay out because of the current 'emergency' if the player persits on walking past the guards or trying to interact with them then they become hostile.
The fort is populated by various monsters and a large number of Roman guards who are fighting the monsters. Both the monsters and the guards will become hostile to the player if he is close enough to them or if they are not engaged in any other combat. Furthermore, there is a variety to the scenario where all the Romans are confused (likely drunk) so the player may just wait out and observe most battles. This applies to the initial two guards as well.
The Fort is also known as Fort Ludios At the very top of the Fort, the Player will encounter Bacchus (in a non-teleport area), whom can be killed for the Laurel Headband (Green Headband) and the unique staff Thyrsus (Pinestaff). The Headband is of Huge Size and can therefore not be worn, but a clothier can change the size [needs confirmation] or the item can be wished for in a smaller size.
Bacchus is the God of grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness and religious ecstasy in Greek mythology. The name is a roman adaptation of the original name Dionysus.
Bacchus will be surrounded by numeruous wine potions aswell.
CAUTION!: When entering the non-teleport area, where Bacchus resides, the Player may take some damage. Be sure not to enter with less than 30 HP!
After defeating Bacchus, the player may claim his throne, putting Fort Ludios under his control. This will deactivate the damage-dealing effect on the throne room's entrance.
When entering the Fort, the player may read some graffiti stating "Romani Ite Domum", meaning "Romans Go Home", this is most likely a reference to Brian's mispelling from the Monty Python movie "Life of Brian". In the scene, Brian mispells the latin phrase (Romanes eunt domus) and is corrected by a Centurion.
