Summary: During the First Track of the world of the First Power, the continent of
Antarctica became a highly prized commodity due its natural resources. Originally
included among the territories of the Roman Empire, Antarctica was eventually seized
through war by Drakonia. For eighty years, Rome struggled to recapture the continent
from Drakonia (3:24:5-6).
In the days of Kronus Maximillius, Rome launched a military campaign in attempt to
seek revenge against Drakonia and regain control of Antarctica. The Roman Emperor,
Commodus III, set the famous general, Sulla Cornellius, to lead the invasion. Following
a strategy devised by Kronus, Drakonian forces launched a pre-emptive counter-offensive
strike against the Roman cities of South Africa.
Rome’s failed invasion of Antarctica proved disastrous, as Drakonian forces managed
to both defend the frozen continent and plunder the Roman treasuries of South Africa
(3:23:48 — 3:25:45).
