Yes. So far as I can suss out, there are four regions of Canada's: the Kanadi, who represent the upper cowboys/ lower hunter-gatherers, and live on the Canadian Prairie . The Canucks, who live on the north end of Lake Superior and are mostly hunters who make a living off trade and piracy. Ontario, which is culturally and religiously American. And Quebec.Are we going to look at Canada as well. And also what's Boston going to look like. I feel like we should do a music and liberal arts update.
Are the Laskans in the process of civilizing?
Because, like the Norse, they can't stay raiders forever. I'm thinking that they've got a mix of Russian, Anglo-American, and Inuit culture. It's ironic that people with Russian heritage effectively became Vikings considering the controversy regarding whether or not Vikings founded Russia.
This depends on what you mean by the Laskans. In my head, what the Cascadians refer to as "Laska" is the Pacific Coast of BC North of Vancouver and the Alaskan Panhandle and maybe Anchorage. This region would have the population and capacity to raid Cascadia and cause serious damage. Yes these peoples are civilizing. The various city states have colonies and trade posts.
North of the Alaska range, this region is not civilizing, it is tundra wasteland, mostly populated by Native tribes.
Tbh Far Eastern Russia is way too far away to have had much of a cultural impact on Alaska. There's Kamchatka, and then several thousand kilometers of Aleutian to cross to make it from Pacific Russia to Alaska. And theres nothing in Alaska, you cannot get on the way to Alaska, so no real reason for Russians to travel. If anything, there might be a bit of Japanese culture. So I don't think there's much in the way of Russian culture but yes, Anglo-American and Native American cultural influences (Inuit don't live along the Pacific).
Ha! Crazy how close Tengus look to Darth Maul. Has George Lucas ever mentioned it?And one of the many tales of the Columbians is that of the "Choosen One" who will bring balance to the Force. He did battle with an army of Spirit-Tengu of the Sith Tribe of Sky Spirits whose faces were red and black and wore crowns of thorns. The Choosen One did defeat them and bind them to his service. In the deserts and rocky plateaus of Columbia an order of Shinobi gather to overthrow the tyranny of the Jedi Masters, calling themselves the Sith after the Tengu they are assassains and feared throughout the District.
That's a tricky question.Are the Laskans in the process of civilizing? Because, like the Norse, they can't stay raiders forever. I'm thinking that they've got a mix of Russian, Anglo-American, and Inuit culture. It's ironic that people with Russian heritage effectively became Vikings considering the controversy regarding whether or not Vikings founded Russia.
It extends all the way out to the end of the Alaskan Peninsula, though that is certainly extremely marginal territory.This depends on what you mean by the Laskans. In my head, what the Cascadians refer to as "Laska" is the Pacific Coast of BC North of Vancouver and the Alaskan Panhandle and maybe Anchorage.
Was Medieval Norway comparable in size?I think that raids would taper off once a single strong leader takes control over the Laskans and starts turning them into an organized nation like how the Danes and the Swedes transitioned from being Viking raiders.
I don't find extensive Japanese influence particularly likely, personally. Its still a long ways for significant cultural transport.I wouldve thought that it'd be further away to get there from Japan, but that's interesting. The Laskans might combine half-remembered details about the American State Government, Native American tribal society and possibly even Pre-WWII Imperial Japan. I'm imagining a Laskan "Governor" or even "President" behaving more like a Japanese Emperor than an elected official. Especially if the Laskans value strength like the Vikings seemed to
In the East (roughly speaking, east of the Great Plains) Feudalism predominates. Along the Great Plains, nomadic tribalism. In most of the West, despotisms and empires. In the Pacific Northwest and the Boswash, mercantile city states. Along the Gulf of Mexico there's a singular "Secratarial State", which appears to be a thalassocracy ruled by a man, but where most of the actual administration is conducted by Voodoo Witch-Queens.Just a general question:
What is the most predominate political system in Medieval America?
For instance in IRL Medieval Europe the predominate political system was Feudal Monarchies. I haven't read any of the previous threads.
If I made a faux pas, I'm deeply sorry!
