    I wanted to create a religious text for this An-Luru figure being a dominant early religion in the region. I was imagining that An-Luru would be a "Savior" like figure with the text ending shortly after his crowning as King and his founding of the City. Would you be okay with me beginning work on this or do you have different ideas on how this may work?
    To further note on how I would portray An-Luru, he'd be a more violent form of Jesus with his backstory taking inspiration from apocryphal texts of Jesus as a child. Since you also noted how the Founders of Akwar created the language, this could be used for the religious text to claim that An-Luru himself wrote the texts.

    I actually really like some of your ideas about An-Luru. In my mind he was more of a Gilgamesh-like character, somebody who is known mostly from legends of later people with much of their actual life shrouded in mystery. I could definitely see him becoming slowly deified by later Miscayan civilizations (Narrakians, Sutarbans, Kadimarans, etc.), who could then produce a religious/semihistorical text similar to what you have in mind.
    As for people thinking An-Luru wrote the texts himself. I am on board with this 100% as the kings of Miscayan states were seen not only as link between the mortal world and the gods themselves, but were also seen as responsible not only for the nation's success in battles and wars but also seen as directly responsible for every building, road and wall erected in their reign, as well as good crop yields and religious/social achievements (such as the texts).

    Coming soon: Upscaled Q-BAM maps of more important years, which will be less frequent than the maps accompanying the timeline updates. Here's a preview of 919 AF.
    Also, considering deleting all previous timeline threadmarks and redoing it since so much is getting added.

    Could you please mantain them, if only as an extra reading material? (maybe compare the 1.0 to the 2.0 versions?)

    There is a Haxamanid empire map I've posted earlier in the thread but its kind of out-of-date. No map for their attempted Pelasian conquest....yet ;)
