Hmmmm... the nude warriors would actually be more Greek... most likely the Spartans, or the Amazons, or the Sabines... As featured in every single painting on the subject.

Drugs and alcohol would be featured in taverns, I presume.

Greek warriors(especially Spartans) wouldn't be nude or close to it. This misconception has gone on for quite a while. Spartans didn't fight in little more than a loin cloth. They wore breastplates and a skirt of some sort generally. The movie "300" depicts Spartans and Greeks in general a far cry from what they truly were. Spartans were taught to evade rather than die and to survive/win at all costs.

At the battle of Thermopylae, there were originally several thousand Greek hoplites there. They saw after a few days of fighting that it was hopeless and many retreated to a more defensible place in southern Greece. The 300 Spartans decided to forget their training and keep the enemy off of the retreating Greeks' backs. About 1000 other Greeks from another city-state stayed with the Spartans to make a total of roughly 1300.

This is constructive posting! Ill get into the beta for sure!

@ Darathor:
What you said about the Spartans in this timeline is right, but in the Bronze Age the Greek Hoplites fought very often naked or with bronze cuirass without clothing the nether regions. The Greek people believed in the beauty of the human body so they saw no need to hide it .

Perhaps they wore little early on but they wore the muscle-looking armor around the time of the battle of Thermopylae.

In training they wore nothing to nearly nothing but while fighting they wore some of the best armour to come by at the time. Read the book Gates of Fire had to read it in a 9th grade history class and loved it. Very good descriptions of how the spartans trained and fought and has the battle of Thermopolyae in it. The movie was nothing like what happened I actually find the true story to be much more interesting. They would always fight in an organized matter not like in the movie were they would just run around. Most of the time they would use there spears and the first four lines of troops would be able to reach over there people in the front and stab. They would have a ton of backups for when they broke but they did have a short sword if it came down to it.

This books sounds interesting, I always wanted to see what formations were used in battle etc. (For Fantasy battle descriptions in something I am writing)

The Greeks used hoplites to form phalanxes, which as described above, was basically a giant spear wall. But for some more formations there were those like the wedge and the pincer move where you would flank them on both sides and surround them.

Depends on the period. For that period the phalanx was unmatched, long spears/sarrissas etc which could depending on the army/time reach the front of the formation anywhere from 3-6 rows deep. The more advanced armies were also trained to move effectively in this formation, most were restricted to simply walking towards the enemy, but properly trained you could shift into a still relatively slow, charge while maintaining the phalanx.

Can also recall medieval variations on the phalanx, less rigid, but still essentially blocks of men with spears. Easy to use, effective, cheap. properly equipping a swordsman required lots of money, resources and training. Just not as cost effective.
