"Whereas any solution to the present crisis should and must be done in accordance with the Constitution of Nova Roma,
"Do we, the Senate of Nova Roma, by vote of a majority, hereby appoint Flavius Vedius Germanicus to the office of Dictator, and invest in him complete authoritas and imperium, trusting him to resolve the present crisis and take whatever steps he deems necessary to prevent its recurrence in the future."
