* {{Arcadia}}: The Forest of ''Arden''. [[Literature/TheBible Ringing any bells?]] ** Well, it's a real place in France.

I decided that when I wrote Cyrstal Dragon Jessus I meant Hyjacked by Jesus. The religion is not stated to be the real greek roman religion, but it is effectively hyjacking that religion.
* CrystalDragonJesus: The story is set in a time and place where Greek or Roman Religion is dominant, but the religion seems very like Christianity in 16th Century England.
