In my next couple of posts will be the Warlord with his host setting for Greenland and Iceland. So no sleep till Scotland. There will be other ships that will do official colonization of the two places but the main fleet is going towards Scotland with some casualties.

So, around the time you integrated the Bhumidol I integrated Kutaizsur, who would have been neighbours and traders through the narrow mountain passes of the Caucasus. Its unlikely that the League would have sent diplomatic envoys to Scyth and even more unlikely that Scythian explorers/traders and the like would be given access to League territory, and any trade (official or otherwise) would probably happen in small Caravanserai situated in no-mans land on the border.

If you want there to have been sustained diplomatic contact I'm okay with that, but I'm not sure what you're expecting to have happened over that time period.


I would like that we have made only fleeting contact thus far, so that more official contact might be made in IC

How did you get from Wisconsin to Scotland? I really doubt you that you would have that kind of technological capacity or logistical capacity. It would seem like the trip would cost faaaar more than what it was worth. Also, the Scottish coast is mostly rocky....

Well, he hasn't made the transition yet. Ulls is basically making an all-in roll of the dice with his primitive longships to sail all the way around eastern Canada, to Greenland, to Iceland, to Scotland. It's going to be a doozie.

You can't Viking the Vikings when most of your crew dies on the way there... and then all probably die from local diseases.

Well, at least Jeb will probably live. Assuming he doesn't miss Iceland by dead reckoning and starve to death in the open ocean.

Yeah, I thought about that, what is he going to eat once he gets to Greenland and Iceland? The only animal I can think which is indigenous to either is the walrus; those are pretty tough to kill.

There's plenty of fish in those seas, actually, especially now when the stocks are untouched. In some places legends say Vikings that fished off Greenland could walk across the water on the backs of the cod.

Though, yknow, scurvy.

Bah, I'm going to be fine, just need to make sure that people don't die from cold weather and lack of food.

Oh, Cristo? Just saw your post in Scythe. For what it is worth, an actual siege-crossbow can actually outrange even a longbow. I imagine your spies wouldn't have had access to more than hunting crossbow designs, to be fair, which are simpler affairs than the windlasses and repeaters the Imperial Army actually uses.

So, I'm thinking about putting together a history/timeline for established nations, because I've been told this might help new folks join, even if they drop in unoccupied regions.

Would people be interested in putting together their own brief histories?

Yes, likely something like that, that I will aggregate all of them to put in the OP. We had at least four new posters sign up, but none of them made it to the IC, and I think that might be because the RP is too inaccessibly developed looking.
