Is it just me or does Pompeii In Japan sound like the title of a live album recorded at Buddakan in the 70's with that so wonderful mix of prog and hard rock for that era?

Why bother making armor for infants? They'll just grow out of it in a month.

The guy in the armour was more likely the big cheese than the guard of the big cheese and his family. That armour at the time was only for the 'elite'.

Crawl to victory! Crawl like the wind, you bastards!

They hibernated for a thousand years and came back as assassins in the Edo?

Your fire resistance will not help you because you are being buried by ash. Not incinerated by fire.
Firm but fair. No save.

The warrior was found face down in the direction of the volcano. And judging by the position of his legs, it's likely that he fell forward from a kneeling position (talk about cinematic!).

"Even if he dies in a ditch volcanic eruption, a man should die falling forward."
