Antekhon

Postby mj12games » Tue May 03, 2005 11:57 pm

Among the humans (who have lost their homeworld, after all) there is an old legend of a counterpart to that homeworld, referred to as "Antekhon" (in case anyone cares, the old Greek name for the idea of a continent on the opposite side of the globe is "antichthon").

It is the hope among the human faithful ("Antekhites"?) that the existence of Antekhon will be discovered and humanity will be welcomed with open arms.

Just musings for a Tuesday evening...

I don't know if it actually exists yet... but if it does, it'd be great if it turned out to be the squids' homeworld... :)
