In ancient Rome, renowned architect Lucius is down on his luck. He has been fired because his style of buildings is unfashionable, and all the bathhouses in the city are noisy, boisterous places that no longer prioritize relaxation.

Now, armed with knowledge of these strange new baths, Lucius is determined to restore his reputation and revolutionize the Roman bathing culture!
