Episodia is a fictional universe composed of episodes and characters organized in narrative threads. Its form is defined by its medium and is expected to mutate as it spreads. Hyperlinks connect the narrative to Wikipedia as the setting of a real world parallel universe. Key locations are geotagged on OpenStreetMap and photographs are published on Wikimedia Commons.
The Passengers is the initial thread.
The Passengers is loosely written in the format of a television series and divided in 3 parts (seasons).
Although the narrative does not follow a chronological order, The Passengers is mainly set in 3 different periods*.
- The Age of Anne (1943-1953): from the signing of the Allies' armistice with Italy to the overthrowing of Iran's Mosaddegh government.
- The Age of Christiane (1979-1983): from the seizure of the US embassy in Tehran to the death of singer Klaus Nomi.
- The Age of Nujood (2010- ): from the launch of Episodia on.
*Parachronic periods, one mediaeval set around the fall of The last Kazarian fortress (965) and one futuristic beginning on the 250th anniversary of the US Declaration of Independence (2026) are also being developed.
Annexes are metadiegetic texts written by The Passengers' characters.
