My name is Issac Wolfe, but feel free to just call me Isaac. I am the author of the once-active Dictator: Gaius Julius Caesar and Brick to Marble: A Roman AAR, both of which were unfortunately cut short due to personal reasons. However, in the spirit of old saws, the third time is the charm.
I proud to present:
THE ANNALS OF THE ORIENT
The Orient - a mysterious place of startling fertility and yet a place of terrible death. Geographically, we know this place as the Middle East, and at the center, the Fertile Crescent - the beginning of civilization. These two rivers and the sands that surround it have ran red with blood since Man has known how to fight. Empires have been founded and destroyed here. People have ventured in, believing they could have it all, to only to be swallowed up by the sands that invited them. Yet, one empire had risen high amongst them all - the Persian Empire. We know it today as Iran. Having existed at three separate times, controlling, essentially, the same amount of territory, Persia had long dominated the Orient, extending it's power and culture to such an extent that even the final conquering force - Islam - could not resist it's temptation.
Historically, as the aforementioned acclaimed, Islam ended the last Persian Empire under the Sassanids in A.D. 651. However, those same sands call once again, and soon the Armies of God shall thrust up their tall standards, believing that the Orient can be conquered as many before thought it could. Yet, these sands call across the Mediterranean, pricking the heartstrings of the Dukes of Barcelona. What these petty Dukes and the mystery of the East have in common is anyone's guess, but destiny does not sleep, and if the sands call forth for you, you are bound to listen.
