Specific information about this server

  • Ikariam uses "s38" in its URL on your non-mobile devices and "m38" on your mobile devices as the server designation for this world, no matter which community server / language version you use.
    • Ikariam is using the letters of the Greek alphabet  wp as the names for the first (1st) twenty-four (24) worlds.
    • Ikariam is using Greek gods wp as names for the twenty-fifth (25th) world onward.
  • Ikariam uses a few special servers for the following reasons:
    • "Speed servers" (not used often / reset after each session) - For when they need to test changes that occur at Higher levels of the game and would take too long at normal speed to reach.  These servers run at four times (4x) the normal speed when they are used.
    • "Test servers (1 / 2)" - For testing the beta wp patches before they go out to the live servers.
    • "War servers" (reset after each round) - Special servers that run for 6 months at a time, run at three times (3x) the normal speed, allows Pillaging of gold and have a different set of rules compared to the normal game servers.

General information

In ancient Greek religion  wp and myth wp, the Anemoi (Greek] wp Ἄνεμοι, "Winds") were wind gods who were each ascribed a cardinal direction  wp from which their respective winds came (see Classical compass winds  wp), and were each associated with various seasons wp and weather  wp conditions.


They were sometimes represented as mere gusts of wind wp, at other times were personified as {{WPL|wing|winged]] men, and at still other times were depicted as horses wp kept in the stables of the storm god Aeolus  wp, who provided Odysseus  wp with the Anemoi in the Odyssey  wp. The Spartans wp were reported to sacrifice a horse to the winds on Mount Taygetus wp. Astraeus  wp, the astrological deity (sometimes associated with Aeolus  wp), and Eos  wp/Aurora  wp, the goddess of the dawn  wp, were the parents of the Anemoi, according to the Greek wp poet Hesiod  wp. The daughters of the Anemoi are the Aurae  wp (wind nymphs wp).

Of the four chief Anemoi, Boreas (Aquilo in Latin  wp) was the north wind and bringer of cold winter air, Zephyrus (Favonius in Latin) was the west wind and bringer of light spring and early summer breezes, and Notos (Auster in Latin) was the south wind and bringer of the storms of late summer and autumn; Eurus, the southeast (or according to some, the east) wind, was not associated with any of the three Greek seasons wp, and is the only one of these four Anemoi not mentioned in Hesiod's Theogony  wp or in the Orphic Hymns wp.

The deities equivalent to the Anemoi in Roman mythology  wp were the Venti (Latin, "winds"). These gods had different names, but were otherwise very similar to their Greek counterparts, borrowing their attributes and being frequently conflated with them.


Notos (Νότος, Nótos) was the Greek god of the south wind  wp. He was associated with the desiccating hot wind of the rise of Sirius  wp after midsummer  wp, was thought to bring the storms of late summer and autumn, and was feared as a destroyer of crops.

Notos' equivalent in Roman mythology was Auster, the embodiment of the sirocco  wp wind, a southerly wind which brings cloudy weather, strong winds and rain to southern Europe.

The name "Australia" (the 'southern land') is derived from Auster.
