This song "Glory and Gore" by Lorde. This video has the lyrics with it. I swear it's like she wrote this song while watching Spartacus (she may have since there is that New Zealand connection). But seriously, someone could make a hell of a Spartacus video matching up with this song:

I fixed that red line that always showed up across the faces of the character boxes on the front page.Read more >
OK, so some sort of consensus needs to be found amongst us contributors or an Admin needs to make an executive decision about what to do about Correus and Ediscus because these characters already have their own existing pages: Celtillus and Ludovicus.
For the sake of clarity and since I don't know the actor names, I'm going to refer to them in this article as The White Actor (TWA) and Black Actor (TBA)

Before I became an evil attorney, I received a Masters Degree in American History specializing in the Civil War era, so needless to say I've read and written quite a bit about "Rebel" armies, haha. At any rate, when you are referring to something that is a unique entity, in our case we are usually referring to Spartacus' army, you capitalize it. This goes for both proper nouns (the Rebels launched the attack) and proper adjectives (Agron was a Rebel general). You don't capitalize it when you are using it as a common noun (Grandpa shook his fist and yelled "stop acting like such …Read more >
