I have been planning to reboot my 'Antaraverse' for a long time, and it's not the first time I've done it. This time however I won't be creating a new thread to do it, hence the 2.5 in the title. The reason I've wanted to do this was because it always bugged me that Antara did not fit in the real world as the backstory was far fetched and I even created an entirely new landmass where North America used to be. Instead, what I needed was an entirely new world to place her in - with different continents, nations, and history.
It was a lot of work to simply get the basics done for this transfer. I've created a very basic world timeline that I'm not yet ready to share, instead there will be a local
timeline that provides a bare minimum understanding of the time period I draw my vessels in. In order to keep most of the history and ships, several world events and nations will have IRL counterparts. The nations that are prominent are shown below with a small explanation of each. In addition I've also linked a gallery with some maps of the world. The dating system used is also different from IRL due to a completely different history.
Since this AU is officially being rebooted (again), everything prior to 8 Oct 2019 is now out of date and subject to updates. They won't be removed as they, at most, only need their history and some specifications changed. RIP me I've got a lot of work to do
