Runaway Slave Spearmen are the lowest of the low, given the worst weapons and no armor before being pushed into a battle line. These are the men that peasants look down upon. These men will fight because they have no choice. They have thrown in their lot with the enemies of Rome, and now must triumph or face consequences. Running away is a death sentence for slaves. The laws of Rome have been tightened over generations for peasants and small farmers, tying them to their land where they can be taxed to the hilt; laws on slavery have never been relaxed. The lot of slaves at the bottom of the system has just become even harsher. Christianity, with its promise of universal brotherhood, has merely made matters worse in some ways by giving hope but not delivering earthly freedom.
