Alternate Earths

78. Egyptian Earth

The influences of ancient Egypt are very visible on this earth: from the architecture, to the clothing, to the religious beliefs of the inhabitants. On our world, the Egyptians were conquered by Alexander the Great. Arturo suggests that on this earth, perhaps "Alexander wasn't so great."

This world has also managed to use genetic engineering to create huge beetles--scarabs--which they place inside pyramid tombs.

The rulers of this world are able to slide to other worlds using timers similar to the one used by Quinn and company.
