The history of the Pheonix River, and it's habitations, stretches far beyond oral tradition and memory. DMs must be familiar with this information, because it is rife with possible adventure hooks. What if the Psionic Lich King Lycurgus were to rise again?

The history of the world stretches pretty far.  But it's probably best to start in the New Stone Age, which is about 10,000 BC on our planet.  The information presented here are from a Romance of the Stone Age perspective, instead of what actually happened.

Olympiad CalenderEdit

The Ancient Greeks used the Olympiads to count the roll of years. So Alexander Reckoning is replaced by Olympiad Reckoning. The first Olympiad began in 776 B.C. according to our calendar, so that would be abbreviated Ol. 1,1, followed by the second year (Ol. 1,2), and the third (Ol. 1,3), and the fourth (Ol. 1,4). The next year (772 B.C.) is the first year of the second Olympiad (Ol. 2,1). Alexander was born on the 21st day of July in 356 A.D. That would make Ol 104,4 his birth year. This is because, instead of using Yahweh's starting date of the year (which is the Vernal Equinox), the Ancient Greeks used the latter part of August, using the eighth full Moon after the Winter Solstice to mark the Games.
