Most of the more popular fantasy novels have a time period setting similar to the dark ages, with knights, chain and plate armour, and castles. I, however, have always been drawn to ancient history, of places like Greece, Rome, Egypt, Babylon, etc.
The time period setting of my own world reflects this and will have a more ancient civilizations feel to what is more typical. It will be of course, however, significantly different and truly one of a kind. This is why I have posted a picture of Alexander the Great, appropriate for the topic and also my favourite historical person. He and one of my main characters share a few similarities, although this character is not modelled after him, by any means.
