Talk:Nova Roman Xenia Project
The "Nova Roman Xenia Project", or whatever name we will give to this later, is a possible undertaking that was born from the experience of many Nova Romans all over the world who welcomed each other as guests in their homes, facilitating traveling and gathering together the real life relationships between Nova Romans, knowing foreign cultures, and building our own New Roman culture.
The project is now in its first phase, there is much to discuss.
We ask only one thing to you:
Please share your ideas HERE in this NR WIKI page:
I hope you like this idea!
I think it will make Nova Roma more living, more friendly and more real. Please share your ideas. --Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus 15:59, 14 June 2009 (CEST)

The Romans had a word for it...
...Hospitium. A traveling citizen (I'll call him Aurelius) might be taken in for the night, fed a decent meal, put up in a guestroom, then given a change of clothing, a fresh horse, and whatever money or other help he needed for the next leg of his trip. Should his host happen to be passing through Aurelius' neck of the woods, Aurelius would do the same things for him, to the extent he was able. Romans who traveled a lot might establish a whole network of people to stay with along their regular routes, with (again) the honor and obligation being mutual.
I doubt many Novaromani will be in a position to lend each other cars, money, legal and social services; but the idea of "If you'll let me stay at your house, you can stay in mine when you're in town" could carry us all a long way. -- Marius Peregrinus 07:50, 15 June 2009 (CEST)
Requirements / rules for the guests
Perhaps it'd be good to add information about "house rules", e.g. are pets / smoking allowed etc. little, but important information? Or should we develop NR house rules for which could be used as standard set of rules? Would they be mandatory for households wishing to take part into the program? --Caius Curius Saturninus 14:14, 29 July 2009 (CEST)
