Up until now, my fantasy series has depicted only one empire, but I am thinking of creating a FOURTH volume that will introduce a neighboring empire from across the sea to the east. Up until now, none who ventured to the eastern seas have ever returned, but what if that changes during one of the main characters’ reigns? I am thinking of basing this new empire on the Roman Empire and the Empire of Alexander the Great. In fact, I am thinking of basing the various kingdoms on the various nations of Greece that participated in the Trojan War. I am even thinking of depicting a war between these two empires that will be based on both the Trojan War and the Hundred Years War. It will be like the Middle Ages versus the Roman Empire/Ancient Greece.
