Point of Departure

Roman Empire: 116 AD original point of departure where Emperor Trajan decides to fortify the newly claimed province of Mesopotamia, making it much more easily defendable, and as a result his successor Hadrian decides not to get rid of the province. In 163 AD in Athens, a young boy named Maximus is born with to loving parents and later a younger sister who is born in 165 AD, but unfortunately his mother dies in birth, and his father dies of plague in 167 AD. He develops a great character of extreme intelligence, love of knowledge, intellect, wisdom, and philosophy, but he is also a very good judge of people, and extremely street smart when looking out for himself and his baby sister. He crosses heads with Emperor Marcus Aurelius who decides to adopt him, and is proclaimed Emperor in 180 AD being the sixth Good Emperor out of the 15 Good Emperors.


China: 644 AD, when for the Chinese advance the Tang up to the Aral Sea, and later in 664 AD, when the Emperor of China meets the Emperor of Rome, timeline goes on much as usual with China, the Anushi Rebellion leads to a period of severe unrest, warlordism, corruption, and an overall sense of decline. It is not until the Song Dynasty in 960 AD, that China modernizes and opens up to the world.


Japan: 741 AD, when a Roman General Tiberius Salinus opens up the Japanese to the Roman Empire, and starts a trade deal with them. The Japanese become very curious about the Romans, start to unify and strengthen imperial power under Kammu who moves the capital to Osaka, then Saga the Great who becomes Emperor in 806 AD, modernizes and reforms Japan, and unifies the whole entire Island nation into a regional power within 44 years.


Maya: The city of Tikal in 402 AD decides to unite all the city-states of the Mayan Peoples, and by 416 AD they have conglomerated all of the Maya

Aztec: The Nahua peoples unite much earlier around 350 AD, and by 450 AD form the Aztec Empire, which will separate boundary lines halfway down the Mexican Peninsula. This will occur until both people merge together in 773 AD.

Goreyo: The fact that this land is not called Korea is evidence enough that they unified and became a solid nation before 1400 AD. They unify, make up their own distinct language, culture and borders by 953 AD.
