Macedonian Empire at it's greatest extent.

The world in which Phaeselis lives and breathes is based on the Hellenistic empire of Alexander the Great.  The Hellenistic Empire stretched from Thesally and part of the Pelloponessos to as far as what is now known as Tibet in the east, and as far South as the third or fourth Cataract of the Nile. To be fair, the humans call their world, "Earth" just as we call ours, and lets leave it at that.

Philip's son, Alexander the Great (356–323 BC), managed to briefly extend Macedonian power not only over the central Greek city-states by becoming Hegemon of the League of Corinth (also known as the "Hellenic League"), but also to the Persian empire, including Egypt and lands as far east as the fringes of India. Alexander's adoption of the styles of government of the conquered territories was accompanied by the spread of Greek culture and learning through his vast empire. Although the empire fractured into multiple Hellenic regimes shortly after his death, his conquests left a lasting legacy, not least in the new Greek-speaking cities founded across Persia's western territories, heralding the Hellenistic period. In the partition of Alexander's empire among the Diadochi, Macedonia fell to the Antipatrid dynasty, which was overthrown by the Antigonid dynasty after only a few years, in 294 BC.

The World around Phaeselis Edit


States of the Diadochi, c. 300 BC

Phaeselis exists in an Alexandrian Empire as an independent city state and Principality according to Phaeselis' Earth's version of Alexander who was also called Alexander.  It was his wish that the city govern itself and should never be conquered by his generals.  The five kingdoms that formed as a result of Alexander's conquests are:

The world of their Earth, which we will call "Lemurias" to prevent confusion, is about the same size as Earth with a diameter of 7,920 miles around. Lemurias is about the same temperature range as Earth and also has one moon. About 7 tenths of the planet is covered in a world sea called "oceanos" by the Hellenes.  There are four major continents that are connected to each other: Aryavarta (which is thought of as a sub continent), Atlantia, Aisha, and Libya.  A major continent lies on the opposite side of the world from Atlantia which the people call Hesperidea, the fabled land of Immortality or the Land of the Lost.  Those who journey there are said to never return.  Lemurias days are 24 hours long, and the week is counted as a seven day week.
