Terra Occidentalis

Created by

When Alexander the Great laid claim to the proud city of Carthage the Greek worldview was forever changed. He learned that the Carthagians had managed to cross the western ocean and found new land. Alexander became obsessed with finding this land but was forced to stop his conquests at the Pillars of Herakles.   Since then almost 300 years have past and the power in the mediterranean has shifted due to the rise of Rome. But the Carthaginian reappered suddenly when Roman ships set sail for the Fortunae Insulae and found an outpost. As trade between the west and Rome was opened, the Roman knowledge of these lands increased. After several attempts they managed to sail towards these western lands themselves. A new era of Roman expansion has begun.
