Imperial Roman Provisional Army (IRPA) is a network of progressive Roman living history organizations that work together
to organize individuals, contuberniums and Centuries into cohorts and Legions at major events, in which all member Legions
share in leadership responsibilities.
is dedicated to fostering a broad and balanced experience. Like others, we want to experience the complete "soldier's life"
without sacrificing Health and Safety. We are not stitch counters; however, IRPA does strongly encourage authenticity in ALL
aspects of being a Imperial Roman Legionary - not just the material culture. We expect all to have a reasonably authentic
Basic Impression of the common Roman or Auxilia infantryman, mainly ca 74 AD (though late and republican romans are also
invited to join!), while encouraging and helping members to improve as they learn and can afford. IRPA also challenges it's
members regularly to hone their first person skills by developing a personna from scenario-specific research and putting it
to use at the select Events we support.
is not interested in running your Legion or Contubernium; our organization is only for the coordination of units and creating
a controlled "atmosphere" at major events. Costs are limited to the issue of Rations, as well as any other "program" related
expenses. One of the aspects of creating a controlled "atmosphere" is having the proper equipment needed to create it. Visit
the IRPA Quartermaster Department to see what gear we have and what we are trying to obtain.
you want to learn more about the IRPA, and how it operates, check out our Articles of Cooperation page. This document, drafted
and up and ratified in January 2006, will be the foundation and framework of the IRPA. For a look
at the fine print that complements the Articles of Cooperation, read through the IRPA Current Resolutions to see items proposed
for addition to the final draft.
You can also glance through the pictures on our websites to see us
in the field at past events. If you still have questions please feel free to E-mail us or visit us on the IRPA Discussion
Board and post a question there. Do you have any Comments or Suggestions on making this a better organization? Please let
us know. If you, your Legion or Contubernium have decided that you would like to Join the IRPA, this is the place to start.
