Introduction

A massive melting pot of Near and Middle East.

A grand sweep of the lands of the Old Testament, including almost everywhere that's not Egypt. Incredibly ancient places like Canaan, Israel, Persia.

In fact, most Biblical bits. Think dust, donkeys and divine destruction. A mish-mash of creeds and cultures - Hittites, Phoenicians, Persians, Canaanites, Zorastrians, Philistines and Syrians. There should be something for everybody, although most of the bodies have vanished without trace.

The Middle-East is perhaps most notable for bringing a certain monoGod to prominance. From here derived the three great monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. But no doubt SHAMASH still shines and BAAL still batters the clouds with his club, even if calls for their services have dwindled to an all-time low.



REGIONS COVERED: The ancient Middle-East, including Canaan, Israel, Persia, and the Biblical lands of the Old Testament.
