  1. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Unlikely they'll ever venture into alt history. The material is promising though. That said, if a Kaiserreich-esque tv show can succeed, maybe there's hope for AAOM. Good lord knows we are in need of the Eastern Romans being represented in media. Also I'm hyped for the coming conflict ahead and...
  2. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Finally we get to see the rest of the Colonies. It's interesting to see Ronins mingling with Heracliean locals, given in OTL we Filipinos do have folks of Chinese descent it's cool that here some Heraclieans will probably be able to trace their ancestry to some Japanese clans (Hell I bet thre's...
  3. The House of Komnenos, Like a Phoenix From the Ashes: An Eastern Roman Timeline

    Been watching this thread for a while, always nice to see a Byzantine Alt history with the Komnenoi at the helm, always liked the family and their struggles to keep the Empire from falling. Looking forward to further updates.
  4. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Oh man, the Bone-Breaker was such a great character, a shame he died the way he did. At least he did his duty like Blutcher did. At least the Hohenzollerns get Brandenburg out of this ordeal (Though no Prussia this time). That final sentence on the arrival of those three religious gentlemen is...
  5. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    And so Rome is finally retaken once more, bringing an end to the Papal residence, I like that bit on a scion of Frederick II delivering the final blow against the pope btw, I'm sure Stupor Mundi must be laughing from where he is (Be it heaven or hell). I agree on a statement regarding Ody...
  6. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    About that supposed Spanish Armada about to attack the western Roman colonies, you know, it would be a very perfect career oppurtunity for a certain Leo Kalameros to finally have his day in the sun, would be doubly ironic if he ends up as the Horatio Nelson of TTL. On that topic, I can see it...
  7. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Germany's darkest hour is here, I wonder if they will have their own age of miracles in an attempt to hold back the Triunes. Rome and Ethiopia had their age of miracles, perhaps it is time for Lady Fortuna to grant such a blessing to the Germans too.
  8. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    I quite agree, nothing like giving Charlemagne's legacy, the Salic law and the Germans the finger by doing unto them what was done to the Rhomans centuries ago. It'd be just like the payback at the second battle of Yarmouk a couple of updates ago. Too bad this will be just wishful thinking since...
  9. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    And this is why I am looking forward to seeing their eventual comeuppance in the near future, especially if Nostradamus' prediction will be fulfilled. The image of Theodor in a peasant's garb is hilarious. I wonder if the Rhomans will end up making mosaics of that story as a propaganda tool.
  10. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Ironic that once the War of Wrath occurs, it will be Oddy taking the helm, a descendant of Timur and Shah Ruhk mind you. It seems the Ottomans, in one form or another are always going to be haunted by Timur's ghost. This time it's dressed in purple and gold instead of black and red. I think I...
  11. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    If I can recall what I read from the first thread of AoM, he served as regent for Andreas and married his daughter to him in return for his support against Andreas' sister. Man talking bout Vlad and Niketas sure brought back nostalgic memories when they were the main focus. I guess this is how...
  12. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Hah! I can see that as a reverse situation from Vienna, unless of course this siege of Baghdad has the Romans take the city, get besieged by the Ottomans then the Polish hussars coming in. And I concur, it seems in one way or another, the Poles and the Turks always seem to butt heads even in...
  13. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    A daunting task in rewriting the early Laskarids part Basileus, but one I have enjoyed reading so far, I've been meaning to get to studying the Byzantine empire more than the usual stuff I read in wikipedia, so reading parts of OTL here have broadened my horizon. You'd think we'd get a Byzantine...
  14. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    If the Rhomans are ever the ones to create Monty Python's Flying Circus I can imagine a comical skit where the Roman ambassadorial party are rejoicing after signing the treaty with their Persian counterparts before it suddenly reverts to them one upping each other in the number of wars they have...
  15. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Wacky it maybe but the predictions Nostradamus made ITTL could be a factor that would give the Triunes their much needed comeuppance since Theodore's interpretation was clearly wrong given he lost in the end. Coupled with the fact that the Russian nobles are gathering again a couple updates ago...
  16. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    And now we finally come to the point I've been looking forward to, the Roman stance on Slavery. An enjoyable read from start to finish. And it'd make sense that the colonies out in the new world tend to be far more harsher than in Cyprus plantations. Constantinople after all is far away and is...
  17. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    So a potential Opium war but much earlier then? The chances of that happening are very slim I know, but imagine the possibilities, especially with a much older Leo Kalameros serving as Admiral or Commodore
  18. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Speaking of Hetalia, one thing for certain is that that version of the anime will DEFINITELY portray Russia as a quasi daughter to Rhome that really tries her best to impress Rome to the point she'd say her getting fragmented into several nations would be like what happened to Rhome after the...
  19. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    I love the alt history within the established alt history discussions as it gives us even more world building as to what the in universe historians would be writing. Once Harry Turtledove's equivalent shows up I can bet it'd include all the stuff you guys posted. Plus while I know WW1 is pretty...
  20. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    A rewrite of the pre-1400s would be an interesting read alright. While I do love it for getting us to know how the Romans managed such a miracle, I get the feeling that fleshing out that particular part would be a joy. I'm looking forward to more of Leo's adventures out in sea, I bet he's got...
