Captains of Atlantis: An Introduction

This post is dedicated to Captains of Atlantis.

This was a 5 year real time GURPS campaign (about 8 years game time) set before the dawn of history. Characters started being Atlantean Republic Naval Officers but as time moved on the cast exposed to include politicans, below the decks crew, foreign mercenaries, legionary officers etc;
