Atlantis home of the Atlantians, one of the greatest empires the world has ever known.
The Atlantians were the chosen ones among mankind; they were gifted with knowledge to create superior technology and the strength to fight whoever wanted to take their divine existence.
The Atlantians were godlike and the decided there king should be equal to the gods and live among them, so they started building a tower so great that there king could watch over his people like the gods do over the world.
Zeus and the other gods were not so keen on the idea of a man living amongst them and started hating the Atlantians for wanting even more then the gods already gave them. On the day of completion of the tower when the king could get his first gimps of the gods Hades created a hole in the ocean, sucking entire Atlantis and his tower to the depths of the underworld leaving only the royal palace above water to remind the king that he was no more than a human and he never will be.
