    • Ikariam:
      • Used the Greek Alphabet  wp as names for the first twenty-four worlds(1 – 24).
      • Used Greek Immortal deities wp as names for twenty-two (22) worlds;  twenty-five through forty-four, forty-eight and fifty (25 – 44, 48 & 50).
      • Used Greek Mortals wp and Mythological Creatures wp as names for four worlds;  forty-five through forty-seven and forty-nine (45 – 47 & 49).
  • Ikariam used/uses a few specialty servers for the following reasons:
    • "Speed servers" (Closed) (not used often / reset after each session) - Special servers for when they need to test changes that occur at higher levels of the game and it would take too long at normal speed to reach them.  These servers run at four times (4x) the normal speed when they are used.
    • "Test servers {[ 1  /  2  (Closed) /  3  (Internal use #1) /  4  (Internal use #2) /  5  (Internal use #3) /  6  (Internal use #4)]}," - Special servers for testing the beta wp patches before they go out to the live servers.
    • "War servers [ 1  (Closed - Rounds #1 – #7) (reset after each round - 1 per language group) / 2  (Permanent Round #8 - Open in most communities until 2028)]" - Special servers that run at three times (3x) the normal speed, allows Pillaging of gold and have a different set of rules when compared to normal game servers.

    General information

    Orpheus (ˈɔrfiəs,_ˈɔrfjuːs; Ancient Greek  wp: Ὀρφεύς, classical pronunciation: /or.pʰeú̯s/) is a legendary musician, poet, and prophet  wp in ancient Greek religion  wp.  Some ancient Greek sources note Orpheus' Thracian wp origins.  The major stories about him are centered on his ability to charm all living things and even stones with his music (the usual scene in Orpheus mosaics wp), his attempt to retrieve his wife Eurydice from the underworld wp, and his death at the hands of those who could not hear his music.  As an archetype of the inspired singer, Orpheus is one of the most significant figures in the reception wp of classical mythology  wp in Western culture  wp, portrayed or alluded wp to in countless forms of art and popular culture including poetry, film, opera, music, and painting.

    For the Greeks, Orpheus was a founder and prophet of the so-called "Orphic" mysteries wp.  He was credited with the composition of the Orphic Hymns and the Orphic Argonautica wp.  Shrines containing purported relics wp of Orpheus were regarded as oracles wp.
