* [[spoiler:AncientRome]]: A bunch of hick farmers build a small hamlet and manage to become ShroudedInMyth by killing everyone else. They also discover how to build giant bureaucracies.

At roughly the same time an obscure cleric sets up shop here and gives orders to all the other clerics. Two thousand years later, another cleric uses this place gives orders to Russia. Poland is pleased about this turn of events.

** [[spoiler:Athletics]]: People who like to run, throw and jump.
*** [[spoiler:High jump\pole vault]]: People run toward a lifted bar and try not to bring it down. (alternatively: reverse Limbo)
*** [[spoiler:Long\triple jump]]: People rush toward a sandbox. A misstep can mean a loss.
*** [[spoiler:400+ metres]]: People run in circles on a rubber track.
*** [[spoiler:Throws]]: People hurl deadly weapons into an empty field.
*** [[spoiler:Racewalking]]: People endure an endless SillyWalk.
*** [[spoiler:Marathon Running]]: OlderThanFeudalism, this activity baffles everyone but those who do it. While most people do it when there is no alternative (i.e. there is no TravelCool method available) some do it JustForFun, even though the entire point is elevated heart levels, lactic acid levels so high it can cause cramps in your shoulders, and the near depletion of the body's energy supplies. Some have died doing it. Of course, for those who do it, that IS the fun.
