Well I am working on a post. Just got bogged down by some other things, including another RP, and some research-related stuff. But yeah, I wrote most of an intro post a few days ago. Some stuff like trying to figure out Proto-Indo-European names is a bit trickier than I originally anticipated, probably not helped by me not being a linguist. A few of the things I was planning on relying on (a namelist I found, and a book set in the early Bronze Age/Yamnaya Culture) ended up looking more like someone took some Greek names and tried to PIE-ify them (and one particular namelist for some reason includes PIE-ified Hebrew names, unhelpfully enough). I did manage to find an alt history timeline someone made that had some good names for characters and tribes though, so there's a few names to steal while I figure out how said person came up with those names. I did also find some stuff about PIE personal names and how they were formed, which helps, though naturally I'd have to look up name elements and stick together something that makes sense.

you are just mad the bandits will have nowhere to hide, or you are a creature that lives in the forest. in either case you will be burned.

No, I implore you not do it because you'll literally collapse the ecosystem of China, kill off most animals that could be hunted for meat, and destroy your economy because wood is rather important.

I am not actually going to burn down every single forest. Wood will still be available. The ecosystem in parts of China will be damaged but I don't think hunting contributes a large portion of my food supply.

Just don't pull a Mao and weaken some species that is important in keeping pest populations down.

I don't see how that could happen.

Well, you're about to destroy some perfectly good ecosystems, any of which may or may not be supporting the overall Chinese ecosystem, if, for example, you will accidentally eliminate an important nesting ground for a bird species that curbs pest insect populations, you'll see the numbers of insects eating your crops swell up dramatically, most likely leading to a famine.

China and Europe both managed to pretty much totally deforest themselves for a few centuries there irl without the locusts catching on too bad. China can have a little bit of deforestation

I'm sure the fact that most of that deforestation was done around the time industrial-grade anti-pest chemicals became a thing, as well as everything else that happened during the industrial revolution, and Europe having a climate unfavorable to locust had something to do with it.

Now as for China, well, I rather intentionally tried to draw parallels with the 4 Pests Campaign, and it's destruction of Sparrow populations, which did lead to a increase in locust and after that a famine.

So guys, since Hanajima has started trying to domesticate horses and breed them (with the help of former horse worshiping tribes incorporated in the empire) I had a question.
The archaeologist Timothy Taylor in his 1996 book The Prehistory of Sex proposed a theory that Enarei drank pregnant mare urine to induce hormonal feminization.[10] He bases his theory on some pastoralist peoples custom of consuming animal urine,[10] Ovid poems mentioning virus amantis equae ("slime/flux of mare in heat") as an ingredient (in Medicamina Faciei Femineae it is a "baneful"/"hurtful" one) witches would use[11][12] and modern usage of conjugated equine estrogens for transfeminine hormone replacement therapy. Despite the lack of direct evidence, this idea has gained popularity and has been both cited[13][14] and passed off as a fact[15] on the Internet.


Could I realistically do this?
