Yes, their historical settings are all ridiculously fictionalized and contain everything a child might associate with them in highly compressed form. For example, their pirates seem to inhabit an eclectic temporally and geographically vague cartoon universe like those from Pirates of the Caribbean.
The gritty realism is reserved for the modern day sets where they even depict - shudder - working class jobs and not everyone gets to be an astronaut princess.
[quote=“Seki, post:25, topic:33779”]That said, the one that really puzzled me is the Pyramid set: The pyramids were built around 2000 BC and the Arab invasion was around 600
AD… So what’s up with the ‘Arab’ in the set?[/quote]
Officially he is a grave robber. I am not sure if he is supposed to be an Arab or they just couldn’t think of a better hat for a stealthy Egyptian. Or perhaps you are supposed to play ultra-long-term scenarios where his disdain for his polytheistic ancestors makes him sell their religious artifacts for scrap.
