Introduction:
The world of our prehistoric ancestors was a vastly different place from our own. When an incredibly small portion of the world's population could read or write and a minority of the population ever had the opportunity to see past their birth towns. People weren't sure where they came from or why they lived the way they did but they just did. Although humanity had inhabited the earth already for 100,000 years (at least) and life for the naked apes had become so much easier since the founding of agriculture and towns knowledge was still very much constricted unlike today. Around this time the earliest of governing systems and philosophies were conceived. The majority of human life was fixed around major rivers and coastal areas, states are formed and language is developed. Cities pop up from what were previously villages, territorial struggles commence and monuments are built. From this comes the rise and fall of nations.

   The 12 Olympians

  Thus the twelve great gods and goddesses, the Olympians, became supreme. They were called the Olympians because Olympus was their home. What Olympus was, however, is not easy to say. There is no doubt that at first it was held to be a mountain top, Greece's highest mountain, Mt. Olympus in Thessaly, in the northeast of Greece. But some ancient Greeks thought of Mt. Olympus as more than a real mountain. They imagined it as some mysterious region far above all the mountains of the earth. Wherever it was, the entrance to it was a great gate of clouds kept by the Seasons. Within were the gods' dwellings, where they lived and slept and feasted on ambrosia and nectar and listened to Apollo's lyre. It was an abode of perfect blessedness. No wind, Homer says, ever-shakes the troubled peace of Olympus; no rain ever falls there or snow; but the cloudless firmament stretches around it on all sides and the white glory of Sunshine is diffused upon its walls. As with any typical family, there were some disagreements. Often Zeus had to throw a thunderbolt to break up family arguments.

These "Twelve Olympians" made up the divine family, but they had a deadly enemy ready to play again.

  Storms raged in the sky as the Heavens were torn asunder by Zeus' mighty lightning bolt. Monstrous tidal waves tore through the land, summoned by Poseidon. Armies of the undead and a sickly black flame, controlled by Hades slowly crept over the world. The God's were at war, not with each other, but with the Titan's, once again. The Titans seemed ready this time to destroy their children and rule the cosmos again. Gaia had unleashed them from the pits of Tartarus with the help of her new children. The Gods seemed all to ready for this nightmare to happen. They called upon mighty heroes and demigods to help them in this fight for the fate of mankind laid with their victory or defeat.

  Terrible battles ensued between the Immortals, neither side gaining or losing an inch, they were deadlocked. Ares would charge forward, only to be thrown back by a thundering wave brought forth by Oceanus. Zeus would hurl his lightning bolt into the hordes of Titans, only to be pushed back by the sickle of Uranus wielded by Cronus. Demeter seemed upset by the course of the war and the toll it was taking on nature. She didn’t wish for this war, but it was to come whether she wanted it or not. She knew humanity would suffer, but she would do her best to protect them. The humans fought just as hard against some of Gaia’s new children. The green brutes were made to fight the humans with the strength and stamina of a few humans. The two sides lost so many and yet neither one wanted to give ground. Choices had to be made. Who will you help to win the fight? The Titans or the Gods?  Only the fates know.

Background story -
Pernus is a Short man standing just over 5' 6", He has a slim but toned body. He was born to a lower class family in the ancient Greek city of Abydos.

His parents were killed when Xerxes invaded the area to build his pontoon bridges to the mainland.

From the age of six he fought tooth and nail to stay one step ahead of the authority's  Theft was an every day occurrence.  At the age of 15 he scored big. He discovered an old cave that contained a chest. Inside was a Diamond the size of his fist.

He used this giant diamond too fund a new career for himself. He became a master trader selling and buying across the lands.

His last trade journey was to Sparta. While returning his ship was lost at sea. A cruel act from the gods for his debauchery maybe. He has been left with the cloths on his back and a golden filigree headdress.

Now 23 Years old he plans to reforge himself into a true trade master.

I've started a small village in North Japan. I'm looking for players to move here. And for more players to generally move to this area of the world. At the moment it is focused alot in Europe.

I was hoping a new culture like place can be started over here.
There is a town in China however that is quite empty.

The list of established nations is a very good addition, I just hope that the world map is kept up to date as new nations are established and borders change.

All whitelists will be dealt with shortly. I am currently not available to add you to the whitelist.

I am going to add another section soon for people's advertisements to join their nations.
