Completely understand you So, what's your standing of the coolness of the name "Seleucid Empire"?This is when I tell you that the out-of-continuum reason for the story being focused on Rhomania is that six-year-old me saw the phrase ‘Byzantine Empire’ in a Calvin & Hobbes comic and thought that was the coolest name ever (had no clue what it was, and when my mom looked it up in the encyclopedia for me the explanation went completely over my head), and it’s been my favorite historical civilization ever since.
Yeah, human nature takes is natural (and a bit hilarious form) here.Also here it's Byzantium playing the role of whitewashed empire I see on this thread people supporting the idea of Romania committing genocide,always taking Romania side even with Romania treating Latin as inferior people, making fun of other nations. But still disliking Triune for their action.
Triunes lambasted for arrogance/whitewashing British history, while at the same time some people are arguing for their team (Romans) to genocide their way to a hellenised empire.
I think people will most of the time root for their guys/team and forgive their mistakes. Since this is english language forum, it's natural there will be more anglophiles.
Although I can't say I've seen a lot of british wanks and whitewashing on pre-1900 and post-1900 forums? There were of course some really over the top posters (67th Tigers for Britain and Burnished rows of steel guy for US), but most of the anglo guys here seem pretty normal?
