Ian, thanks for the comment and for the eyebrow raising question, i.e., Is Chesslantis the the same thing as Ultima Thule? The answer, of course, is 'no.' Ultima Thule was, according to the ancient Greeks, a habitable region very far north (the most north of regions on planet Earth). On a related note, perhaps Chesslantis is seen as having been 'myth placed' in the introduction. But I believe it helps create atmosphere for the game.
