    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    That’s huge. Whoever sets the cultural tone of the Pampas via either Montevideo or Buenos Aires in theory controls the cultural and political development of the entire Southern Cone. If TTL Argentines get their shit together better than in OTL, we’re gonna see them possibly control all of IRL...

    THICC: The Highly-Inclusive Color Code

    I'm guessing all Coronaviruses get the SARS color? And if a map needs both Autobots and Decepticons, which Fantasy/Alien colors do I use? Also, Hololive/Vtubers needs a color under either trade goods or religion lmao...

    Holy shit, Burgerland Holocaust? Now that's ironic.

    Hmm...what about OTL Washington State/British Columbia? Holy fucking shit man that’s nasty. Actually savage.

    IMO, OTL Dubois WY might be a better Konstantinopoulos Eschate--in remote mountainous territory just at the end of a formidable natural border. The Absarokas and Winds can get quite nasty even during the summer months, and Dubois is situated near the mouth of Togwotee Pass, the western gateway...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    That's a HUGE advantage, given how it means Rome has a head start on concentrating its best and brightest in order to quickly form modern civic and military institutions. And until we get an equivalent in the Empire to OTL's New Deal and Federal Aid Highhway Act with a massive infrastructure...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Rome, or any non-Islamic power taking possession of the Black Stone is a self-inflicted strategic defeat. It’s FAR more trouble than it’s worth. Doing so would just piss off the Dar-Al-Islam to no end, and embroil the country that took it in years of constant diplomatic turmoil until it was...

    I don't think so. Probably one of the guys judged to be a rebellion risk.

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Excerpt from “Lords of the Spiceroom”, by Tokugawa Ieyasu, translated into Greek in 1999 by Shinnipori Press “It was the sweltering heat of midday when we encountered the Spanish Fleet. Myself and the samurai under my command had exchanged the traditional panoplies of Nihon for the garments of...

    So do they call him the “Fiery Fox”? Holy fucking shitnuggets, the Espanyolos are gonna get boomed, aren’t they? Pereira: “I’m coming to Rhomania in the East today.” Tokugawa: “Dope.” Pereira: *smiles* Tokugawa: “Oh really?” Pereira: “Oh really, what?” Tokugawa: “You trying to get the pipe?”

    This...may not end as well as you might think it will. Look at most of the hypercompetent military strongmen history has produced. In the words of the Korean remake of Designated Survivor, "none of [these men] died beautifully". I would not be surprised if Odysseus was "Niketas Doux: Elektrik...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Huh. Guess “Yavana” is gonna be an ethnic slur used ITTL BY Vietnamese people to indicate a supposed association with the hated Romans as opposed to one against them to signify barbarism. And since “Taewon” is the closest exonym I can cook up that aligns with Ionia-Javan-Yauna-Yavana-Dayuan...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Quick question: do non-Japanese East Asians still view Rome as being, well, Rome? Like the successors of the old empire? So would the Zeng call the Imperials “Fulin” believing them to be pre-Islamic Byzantium, or some version of “Dayuan” seeing them as Greeks with a bit too much interest in...
