A once great empire lays in ruins...now just a shell of what it once was.
It sits waiting for an empress to come and rebuild it to it's former glory.
All the decedance... The waste... The corruption of vices... All of it has eaten Rome out from its inner core and left it a hallow image of fading glory...
Or maybe it was all because it ruled not it self but left it to others to rule that it has come to where it lay.
