  • Just curious, why didn't the Ghurkas join the Entente? Yes, the French refused to give them land that they'd fought for, but couldn't the Ghurkas just invade the Sikhs? It's a lot of land with tens of millions of Hindus (except for the West Muslim part) open for taking. Besides, the Hindu people would rather work with Hindus then a mediocre Sikh minority.

    Law of the offer and the demand: the French were far less willing to offer anything, though with the proviso the act was far more grounded in reality. One might liken it to OTL Italy in WW1...
    Israel_Dan the Man
    Ah. But remember how Italy turned out after WW1.

    Btw, I did a recalculation of the population of the lands of the Ghurka Kingdom and it is a bit more than 73.13 million. Of course, had they invaded the Sikh Empire (a foe who was much weaker than France, btw), this could be as high as 100 million.

    I believe that had the Ghurkas joined the Entente, OTL Pakistan would likely become a weak country of its own.

    BTW, I found (or rather got an estimate) for the Ghurka Kingdom's population by spending a whole half hour looking up old Censuses of British India and check for the population of the provinces that are now under Ghurka rule. I occasionally split in half the population of provinces that were only half under Ghurka rule.

  • have made a beta / gramma check of your latest Weaver option on your Patreon, should i send it to you?.
    Has ,myself begun a big project (amongst many) that is somewhat similar to the Weaver Option, but mostly with some of the same Worm Characters, also it begins much later in time (36 years before the 13 crusade)

    No, that's not necessary. Thanks for the offer, but when Thanathos sends his beta, he does three times the necessary work.
    As for your project, if you want more advice, I advise PM. Comments on my profile are not the best means of discussion/debate.

  • 2 things:

    1. With school coming up I may not have as much time to check out your timeline so I was wondering if you could tell me what the next nation will be so I will know where to pick up when I can look at AH again.

    2. Just curious, what is Brunei’s population in your timeline? 10 million now that Borneo is united?

    1) Not decided yet. I am busy with the Weaver Option right now, will see in a few hours what I choose.
    2)Less than that I think. Between war and trade disruptions I don't think the population can reach that level.
    Israel_Dan the Man
    1. Take your time
    2. Trade disruptions? Don’t they have their buddy the UPNG to trade with since they just took all of Borneo? And who is causing the disruptions? And also, Borneo is a very large island. Does it have roughly 7 or 8 million, then?

    3. How many princes and princesses of France are still un married and in France? Just curious in case some country tries to use marriage to broker an alliance with France.

  • Hey Antony, you wanted me to only talk to you about spoilers so i have a question: which nation will you be talking about next?
    Antony444
    Antony444 1
    I think it will be Hungary-Austria.
    Israel_Dan the Man
    Ooo, that will be interesting. I noticed that they took some of North Italy's land that France didn't take, and they didn't lose any territory in the war.

    Also, I know that 15 out of 43 million people in H-A are Germans, but how many are Hungarians? Those are the main 2 ruling ethnic groups in Hungary Austria, after all.

  • Hello, Antony. What's status of Let the Galaxy Burn chapter? Everyone are waiting for another big battle!!! ;)

    I am at...10 000 words right now. And alas I've not advanced a lot these last days, with all my readers clamouring my attention with the Weaver Option. I hope I will be ready to post something by Sunday, but it's not a promise.
  • Israel_Dan the Man

  • Hello. Not to rush you or anything (since I love let the Galaxy Burn), but how long until "In this country, it is good to kill an admiral from time to time" is updated?
  • Israel_Dan the Man

  • Hey, how long until you update In this country, it is good to kill an admiral from time to time?

    In due time. Certainly before Sunday if I have the motivation.
    Israel_Dan the Man
    Sounds good! If you could do more on the populations of the nations, I'd appreciate it and I'm sure at least a few other followers of the timeline would!

    Honestly, the thing about Visenya as a character is that she's actually very interesting so long as you read between the lines and actually try to get into her mindset. She's a strong-willed woman, who probably had her own needs and desires that she set aside because as Aegon's first-wife, she had to fulfill her duties.

    Lady Visenya
    A capable, competent woman as well. I imagine she had a strong affection for Rhaenys, as a sister. And didn't actually poison Aenys. It's more interesting than just making her Tacituc's Livia.

    Lady Visenya
    Honestly, the Conquerors become MUCH more interesting when you take into account the fact that they are siblings. Her feelings about her siblings are likely complex. A mix of frustration, affection, and obligation.
