Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

June 29th, 2019 Aealo, Kyrenia Looking out from a colonnaded pavilion, Yousefo could see what seemed like the whole of Kyrenia, from Aealo to Veilos, and across the breadth of the River Hex. Kyrenia was a beautiful, Axackalic country, the sort of place that Antarterans had long ago carved out for t...

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

The Strait of Arterus, Huranese Coast The helicopter cleared a layer of clouds, and below them the Horn of Crataea came into view, the very northern tip of the continent, straddling the Strait of Arterus.

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

Oiregei had never known anything but the farm, his entire life. They told him he was born owing a debt to the Antarterans who fed and clothed him, and kept him close to his family, and that only a life of labor now could hope to earn a life of freedom for his descendents one day.

Re: On the Nature of Emperors and Empires

People were already walking around below, driving their pickup-trucks and horse-drawn wagons filled with goods to the base of the ziggurat to set up shop for the day. He'd been among th...
