Notes, Footnotes and Trivia Edit
- The current leaderboard was created from data taken from the World saved in January 16th, and the last data had some errors.
- Caesar had a zero bladder motive at one time. (and later on, Gnaevs joined ranks)
- Leighton Sekemoto was a vampire on both timelines, and hence one of the few to survive at the end of the first timeline.
- Strangely enough, Thornton Wolff has 7 points in Invention and Charisma respectively, even when Kallistrata only offered up to 5 levels in invention, and none on Charisma.
- Because Late Night wasn't installed when Olympias and Thetis was there, Olympias and Thetis had different zodiac symbols. It was corrected with Generations via testingcheatsenabled cheat.
- The Attalids in the first time warp and the second time warp had different zodiac symbols: Even then Olympias and Thetis STILL had different zodiac signs, despite being twins.
- There are two sims who has a trait change as necessitated by the story: Eumenes Attalides, who gains the bookworm trait as an allusion to him expanding the Library of Pergamon and Thessalonike, who replaces the No Sense of Humor with the Rebellious trait catalyzed by her reputation as a cheater in romantic relationships.
- While the Rebellious trait was probably intended to be for the punk image, the fanon takes a more wide view on the trait.
- The main fanon story page is the 3rd longest Fanon Page, following SimFormula and Spectral (Part 1) (with a mere difference of 600 bytes between the main page and the latter). It is also the longest of my Fanon Pages, and is followed by two pages which also share a spot in the top 5 longest Fanon Pages, Kallisto and Union of the Insane page. Following that is Kallistrata's page, and then Stratonike. Antigone and Demetria are also of respectable length, and even Lysistrata has a spot: In fact, Hypatia, Achaia, Hekatonschoinos and Council of Bridgeport belong to the longest 500 pages, and the two smallest fanon sim page of mine that belongs to the longest 500 pages is Esomena at 363 place at 12,758 bytes and Eurydike ranked 432 with 11,278 bytes. Including the subpages (including this page before edit and including the Event subpage), The Time Paradox page in its entirety is 107,668 bytes, now exceeding Spectral's entirety which is 100,568 bytes, and this does not count the new subplot New Homeland, which is also more than 45,000 bytes. Time for a pruning, I suppose?
- The Greek town with the most number of sims named after is Massalia (now Marseille) with 3 Sims: Herakleitos, Phylagoras, and Vercingetorix (an (hellenized) Celt of Massalian birth). No other town has any more than 1 sim named after it, and All 3 Massalian sims are males.
References and inaccuraciesEdit
- The most obvious reference is the Roman family the Romaioi Barbaroi with Ivlivs Caesar (Julius Caesar), Gnaevs Pompeivs Magnus (Pompey the Great), Marcvs Porcivs Cato Vticensis (Cato the Younger), and Titvs Qvintivs Flaminivs (Flaminius), although Titvs was of a different time period, bit less than a century and a half earlier than the time of Pompey and Caesar, to be exact at the times of the Macedonian Wars (He commanded in the 2nd Macedonian War) in which highly overrated Barbaropolis got the weakened Hellenistic states.
- None of the female characters in the Attalid or the Alkmaionid family has any relations to any historical figures in the respective families. There was a Stratonike of Pergamon, but that historical figure is not related to the Stratonike here whatsoever. This is repeated throughout related pages, although most people don't really delve into these things. Speaking of the Attalids, Philetairos and Eumenes's spacing is quite off: Philetairos is Attalos's Brother, who in turn was the father of another Attalos was was in turn the father of Attalos I, who was then the father of Eumenes II. Philetairos was also noted to be a eunuch and was reported to be obese and was not married, which is in direct contrast to the Philetairos here, who was the only CAS sim to have had children normally. On the other hand, Demetria and Thessalonike got married, but never had children, and Philetairos and Parthenope held the title alone until Natasha Kovalenko and Julio Santos-Leite broke in. The party-loving nature was based upon the general Attalid friendliness: Attalids were for one Pro-Barbarian (i.e. Philromaioi), they sent troops to repel the Gallic invasion to the Balkans (that later led to Galatia), and they helped build stuff, such as the stoa in Athenai.
- Hypatia, as mentioned in the sim's page, is a reference to the Neoplatonist mathematician of Roman (Barbarian) Egypt. Given the historical counterpart's tendencies, it was planned for Hypatia to receive the Supernatural Skeptic trait, but it was scrapped.
- Kallisto's personality is also mentioned in the sim's page, but Kallisto's megalomania and engineering tradition is based on that of Dionysios I, who built the Wall of Syracuse and hired mercenaries to keep power and suppress opposition.
- Al-Dar 's members are based on some of the key members of Al-Qaida (except Omar Qutb): Usaim Hamdi is based on Osama bin Laden, who was noted to be a genius and a big fan of outdoors. Ayham Bahri is based on Ayman Al-Zawahiri, who is a qualified surgeon and was a part of the radical group in Egypt aimed at overthrowing the government (hence his Rebellious trait). Anwar Arafat is based on Anwar al-Awlaki, an engineer and a major part in supply aspect. Please keep in mind, however, that the Al-Dar is fictional and it is also a "what if" faction, presuming that the characters did not take up the deeds of the real group.
- The Elect is a parody of the Collective (of Ayn Rand) and some of the characters of Ayn Rand's work, Ray Dann parodying Ayn Rand (his name is a rearrangement of the letters in the name Ayn Rand), Laan Blueshore Alan Greenspan. Lucas Howland is a parody of a typical Objectivist, bookish and rather lazy, and Edith Berry is not a parody of any character or group but simply a plot addition. The musical/band aspect of the Elect stems from Greenspan's ability to play the saxophone and the clarinet.
- Esomena is a homage to the Vocaloids. (as are the entire Mathetai Mouson)
- Aedui (or Aidouoi) and the Arverni (or Arbernoi) are two major tribes in Gaul, and the two tribes represented in Europa Barbarorum. Cocolitanos and Aneirin are the names of the two respective leaders at the time of 272. B.C. Aedui household also presents a Gaul of Massalian origins, which is somewhat unhistorical: although Celts were present in or near Massalia, such as the Ligurian tribes, it is highly unlikely that any of them would owe allegiance to either tribes.
- The Patriot Party is based on the Tea Party and the naming based on the characteres of Metal Gear Solid.
- The birthdays of the Beauty 4 characters are reference to the rough equivalent Chaos Gods in the Warhammer (Fantasy and 40K) universe: Achaia's birthday April 3rd serving as an homage to Nurgle (4+3), Thessalonike Khorne (19-11), Kallisto Tzeentch (3*3) and Demetria Slaanesh (16-10). Demetria doesn't necessarily fit the Slaaneshi archetype, as explained on the trivia section of the said sim's page.
- Although Kallisto introduces the idea of Klerouchoi to serve as the counterpart to the mercenaries of Dionysios I, the system of Klerouchia was actually an Athenian idea, taken well by the Diadochoi such as the Seleukeis, Ptolemaioi and the Makedones. Katoikoi is a better term for the participants of Kallisto's system (and the system better dubbed Katoikia), since Katoikoi are given dwelling, and no plot of land to put them in upper middle-class.
- The Council of Bridgeport plot is heavily based off the plot of Chaos Rising, most notably the presence of a traitor in their own ranks.
- The concept of Kallisto's Bridgeport bombardment largely resembles the Soviet Fractional Orbital Bombardment System, in which warheads are delivered in a low orbital trajectory.
- In the fanon, the term "Rods of God" involves kinetic bombardment, represented by a meteor strike. However, this is bad terminology, as the correct term is "Rods from God"
