The Age of Heroes
Five years ago, Alexander the Great, mightiest conqueror in history, was defeated in battle when he challenged the gods themselves. Now the gods have decreed that all conflict will take place at the annual, where champions battle in the arena while others scheme to control the world.
The six nations of the civilised world are Carthage, Egypt, Greece, Hellas Phoenicia, Persia and Rome. Each of these send their best to the Annual to bring glory to their gods through victory in the Great Game or simply to settle scores. Each nation has it’s own traditional costume, weapons and armour that players are strongly encouraged to adopt.
