We follow the old school way in thinking of terms of the Nestos League. Everyone not part of the Nestos League or its close allies is somewhat of a barbarian except for the larger empires and old civilizations like the Egyptians or Imperium of Man (they are foreigners with strange ideas not to be di...

Ocean thermal could be much more widespread than geothermal. So could tidal power. The problem with tidal and ocean thermal power is that the sea is a destructive place. A wave buoy can sink, there can be a tidal wave which destroys an ocean thermal installation. There needs to be some changes thoug...

At Surn, Scholar Etana observed the taking of the fortress. He watched as the walls were destroyed and the stones burned in silence. The trebuchets tossed boulders and incendiaries, but this was not enough in his mind. It took too long. He counted the time between when the stones and burning incendi...

The ships are in Singidun which is on the Danube river. it is separate from the Vistula thread. Oh, your ships, wait, why would the arrival of your ships be of interest to you? The arrival of Imperial trade ships in Singidun would interest us because we could see what they are trading as well as ho...

"Fouling the gene pool" and sleeping with people going together is pretty interesting. Are you saying immorality is genetic? Do people who are genetically immoral have a chance at redemption? Can you love someone and hope they will reform themselves and become a better person?

It is not really an official town. There is a trading post that is expanding at the base of the Vistula. When we first came to Aren, we set up a place to launch the boats further up the road. We never really quite left. It is the exact same place where the rafts went up the river on the first exped...

I wonder where the town Universal described is on the map to be honest, Nestos and Inperial borders are pretty damn away from each other, is it in Transylvania ( the middle ground between Nestos and Imperium ) or somewhere else?

The Vistula (Market Town) Near the end of the river Vistula after almost two months , they came upon a market town which had arisen from a trading camp. It was simply called Market Town. The traders from the Imperium and the Nestos League had met there for almost a decade, quietly building a place t...

I am curious about the Bible as a future oriented book with future oriented ideas. Virtually nothing in the bible will have happened yet in 3000 b.c. Most of it will be in the future. The interpretations of all the different peoples, the Gardens of Babylon, Egypt and most of the content in the old t...

What happened was that we got to Gdansk for the amber and seaweed. Then we left and the Vistulan League moved in, essentially taking over Gdansk and the surrounding area on the Vistula. It would be an odd situation. The amber traders on the Vistulan river which go to Gdansk would still be going up ...

Wow, this has really started moving fast, can I ask for a recap what happened in my part of Europe ( Poland and the Baltic Coast )? Very little. I think the Nestos folks have formally made contact with the southern parts of the League, but that's all I recall. What happened was that we got to Gdans...

What's probably going to happen is that Ur wins with heavy losses, as usual, and Uruk surrenders once and for but those that it couldn't control becomes a NPCs themselves, which is another problem for the Queendom. But they wouldn't try to fight Ur after just slugging against their greatest rival. ...

Looking forward to some consequences. Need to work on that bureaucracy. We might need to use that irritant gas soon as well as those Hands helpers who watch the population quietly. Should have a post up soon with Aksum.

The problem is that nuclear power is acting like a mature industry with limited innovation. They are building the old reactors and talking about the new reactors. Things like pebble bed reactors are sold as we can't fail which is a problem with the nuclear industry. Instead of we will plan for failu...

So the first battle is the Battle of Anhur, the strongest of the Iron Gate which are three large castles that border Ur and Uruk. Should Ur smack one then they will be getting into the heartland of Uruk and going to do the siege of Larsa and fight them. Expect crazy Nestosian engineering and Uruk t...

The Thracians were known for throwing hemp into fires and sitting down next to them. They also had good strong red wine. In a way, developing something like hot pepper laced smoke which the Aztecs used is kind of interesting. It would be the first use of nonlethal weaponry.
