In the land of ancient Greece, called Hellas, the people waged power struggles for control of the many valuable islands. The combatants faced each other over land and across the seas. In these battles with sail and sword, the combatants ventured forth to discover new islands to fight over. To aid them in their battles, the combatants often seek the favor of the Gods.
