Re:Western Roman Glory

Sorry if wiki convention is to reply on the same page, but just in case, I thought I would respond here to your inquiry on my talk page.

While you can do articles on Earlier Emperors, it probably wouldn't fit in very well as the POD is essentially tied to an event after Romulus was already on the throne (the barbarian invasion that Romulus manages to convert to his own uses, which, in OTL, was the actual end of the Western Empire). Now, that said, If you would like to write about the Eastern Empire in this timeline, that would be perfectly fine. While I am flexible on where this ultimately leads, the basic notion is that in the years after Romulus (which were in OTL the Dark Ages in Western Europe), the culture of the Roman Empire begins to revive (since it had gone through stagnation prior to the POD in OTL, especially in the west) itself and, in the place of a middle ages, a new classical age begins as the east begins to expand deeper and deeper into Asia, while new divisions are made (making a "Northern Roman Empire" which goes into Russia and Scandinavia, and a Southern Empire covering southern Africa and eventually Oceania), eventually leading to a Renaissance (if a more advanced one than OTL due to the lasting power of the Empire(s) in the world), during which the Western Empire primarily takes on the Americas. Anyhow, the point (if not in detail) that I've basically thought this would go to is (though reaching said point in the time-line is a distant notion as I am hoping to make it highly detailed every step of the way) that the World is eventually united under Roman Banners and is, by the 21st century, already in the process of Space Colonization. By that point the world would be, beyond being under roman Banners, near unrecognizable and heavily urbanized and such.--Anaba 'Eesoree 23:45, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Mercenaries

There are several that could use them for parts of their armies, but the same nations need to be watchful of Turkey, so they wouldn't hire them. Most of the others need weapons, not more soldiers.

Kalmykia or Dagestan would work though. Dagestan is having trouble with Islamic terrorist-like types, and Kalmykia could use them to protect Buddhist pilgrimages to Tibet and back, when they do occur. Kalmykia would be more likely, I think.

Stop deleting what i write

Seeing as this is an alternate history site none of this is real and so there is nothing to say that the Sassanid empire and persia are 2 seperate countries

the intire game is an inacuracy, like sugesting that the unification of Italy was in the 18th century when it was 1815 to 1861, why not delete any other post?

Life in the duchy of lacaster

I spoke to Tessitore about your plans and she was mad with me thanks I have enough trouble here and can i say something else I find it rude and presumptions that you are making decisions for articles YOU did not create --Owen1983 15:45, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Owen, I was not mad at you, just mildly peeved that you'd a) written an article to do with my nation without asking and b) did a half-assed job of it. I would still have had words with you about the article even if the issue of merging hadn't come up. In future if you have any ideas regarding Lancaster, ask me about them on the talkpage before you do anything else. Tessitore 16:49, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

Emperor Demetrius

Emperor of Trebizond, I have to say that's one of the most brilliant ideas regarding the Empire I've ever heard, and the fact that the Sultan chose Constantine over Demetrius is something I didn't know about! I would love to help you in your TL, and you have my full support! However, my studies, competitive rowing, and cantorship do (unfortunately) take presidence over AH, so until about October 30th I won't be too active, but please do not wait for me-this is too good an idea to hold back!

Also, my Dutch friend and I had an idea of the Crown of Aragon inheiriting the Burgundian Netherlands due to Mary of Burgundy marrying Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella of Castille marying John II(?) of Portugal. The Netherlands would be made into either their own seperate kingdom of duchy with them being given the autonomy they so greatly wanted as long as they recognize the kings of Aragon as their head (each member-state of the Crown of Aragon was basically its own seperate kingdom and they all worked together). I wanted to include a stronger East Rome in it, and I was wondering if you'd perhaps like to combine TL's-my Dutch friend and I would work out the details in the west, and you and I in the east. My friend enjoys Greece and Byzantium, so he might like to pitch some ideas, too. We were planning on Aragon going Protestant, so perhaps a Protestant Aragon would seek to ally itself with the Byzantine Empire to build it up as an enemy of W. Roman Catholic Rome-or better yet, Byzantium could play the Protestant Aragon off the other Catholic powers and reap the benefits at each trying to sway East Rome into an alliance. Plus, Aragon allying with East Rome could present the Crown with a Causus-Belli for getting Ottoman North Africa-should the Ottomans ever declare war on Rome, the Aragonese can sweep into the Barbary and the Levant and should the two Christian powers win, the Aragonese can take some land. Should you decline, that's quite alright, too-but either way I'd still love to help you!

Mr.Xeight 21:24, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

EoT, do you think that Eastern Rome could survive to the present day? I was thinking that all the lands that the Venetians gained and subsequently lost (my Grandmother's home island of Euboea, Attiki, the Peloponneso/Mystra, Cyprus, and various islands in the Aegean and Dodecanese), and of course the land the Empire held in 1452. Perhaps the various small states and despotates, too. Now of course I don't think we East Romans ( ;) ) could push the Ottomans out of all of the Balkans and Western Anatolia-too many people who cry wank no matter how much it makes sense and is realistic; by I do think that at least they can free roughly all Greek-speaking lands and maybe a free Serbia can secede from the Ottomans, too. I'll be making an outline of the AH as a whole either tonight or tomorrow; it's 9:33 here and I have to be up at 4. Perhaps also Aragon and whoever else aides Greece would influence East Rome to organize on more Western-regions; perhaps a despot in each area of the Empire, or perhaps ressurect the themata or go even farther and use the term "provinces" for their subdivisions like Rome did? Wow, all of this cultural diffusion is exciting! (Chico and I also plan on having Aragonese-settlers moving to the Netherlands and Dutch soldiers during some war come down to defend Aragon proper and just settle in Iberia, giving Aragon-proper more Dutch/Germanic face to it.)I'm so excited to have you on, Constantine Mr.Xeight 02:34, September 18, 2010 (UTC)

No problem. It is extremely annoying when either new users come in and start writing sheer fantasy on the map games (and, of course, hijacking a player's nation), and I felt like something needed to be done about it.

Oops, didn't see that! Sorry, but I think England is just too preoccupied with the situation in America for them to attack the Turks and/or somehow prevent them from taking Constantinople ; however, they could establish a colony in Africa for the Greeks to possibly serve as a new homeland, or as a site for the Greek government to continue it's rule in exile, and to serve as a base for an eventual return to power in Greece.

I did reply, check 1459. BoredMatt 00:14, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

How did the Kalmar Union settle the entirety of Newfoundland in a single year? How was half of European Russia captured within 5 years by the Muscovites? How did the Kalmar Union design, test, and build 12 40-gun top-sail schooners in two years, when the first schooner ever built OTL was launched in 1713? Schooners aren't even big enough to carry 40 guns (unless they were something of the order of small falconets)! How did the Papal States take Rhodes from the Venetians? Allowing all of this, I'd say that Portugal reaching Deigo Garcia in 1460 is relatively plausible, considering they reached Goa some 50 years later. In fact, if schooners are around, then they could probably sail right around the world right now. BoredMatt 23:57, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

When to have the war?

So, I've been thinking about having the inevitable Trabzon-Turkish War some time soon. By "soon" I mean sometime between 2011-2013. When do you think it should happen and how? Or do you just want to keep it how it was previously written (with changed dates of course)? I don't really care either way, so I'll let you largely decide. Caeruleus 22:25, January 21, 2011 (UTC)

Well, it's about that time I suppose. Do you want to begin the war now? We can either update it piece by piece and add Newshour updates as it goes or just add it all at once and not bother with Newshour. Once again, it's your choice. Caeruleus 20:43, January 26, 2012 (UTC)

Help with Byzantine history

I was searching in Experts page and I think you're the ideal person to help me: I need a little resume of Byzantine Empire between its secession from Rome, in 395, until approximately 820 ad (use as reference the Byzantine-Arab Wars). I don't need much, five to ten lines are sufficient.

If you have no time to write it, I accept any kind of help: a summary table, a simple timeline, or bibliography. Thank your attention.

DD Guidelines

Rest assured, I do remember you. No worries, lol.

With regards to the editing of other people's articles, so long as you're cleaning it up, adding links, or even adding canon information from elsewhere, it's going to be fine.

So long as new content isn't added, mind - that's not allowed without permission.

Lordganon (talk) 09:10, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

...And since I think of it, if you're going to add some sort of thing like "Turkey conquers Trabzon," that ceased to be plausible long ago. Lordganon (talk) 09:48, March 24, 2013 (UTC)

Not canon at all - it's been sitting on that proposal page for a very long time. Caer has trouble with reality, as you may have noticed.

That being said, the idea of a North/South division (of sorts) of Zimbabwe is more or less canon by this point - a few articles that are canon have references to it.

So long as that division remains, I would love it if you did something. Caer's sure as heck not going to.

Lordganon (talk) 07:54, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

...And another thing I noticed - the 9th Corps of the Turkish Army has been based in Erzurum for a long time. And it was destroyed on DD. No one from that site is getting out, either. Have the commander of the 48th Motorized Infantry Brigade - a Brigadier General, that is located in Trabzon - be the source of the empire. And you really should remove the guy's name - cannot place any officers in the area that have names, and fictional individuals, unless born after DD, are frowned upon.

Just have'em use his reigning name after the takeover, and all is good.

Lordganon (talk) 08:00, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

The Armenian border, however, is very far ground-wise from Trabzon, through radiated zones and mountainous terrain. Have to pass through Elazig territory to get there, by and large, too. Around half the strength of that corps is also south or west of Elazig, which is even further away.

Hmmm.... Well, if you don't want to use the 48th Motorized Infantry Brigade - which, as an fyi, is the most plausible course of action, given distances involved and being in the city already - the 25th Mechanized Infantry Brigade based in Ardahan is the best bet, being next-closest. Any other groups are even further off.

Lordganon (talk) 10:24, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

Good to hear - though you do still need to take out the name of the founder, or create some sort of excuse for them, like your general declares himself to have some sort of new imperial name. Unless you can somehow pull up a real general, anyways - but good luck with that one. Lordganon (talk) 08:20, March 29, 2013 (UTC)

Thought I'd say - Trabzon has Armenian, Georgian, and Greek support for their independence now. You're giving them too much credit with their heavier equipment, but too little for their light equipment, as well. Lordganon (talk) 08:39, March 31, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, they'd openly recognize it - and your article actually said that prior to this recent bunch of edits. Both parties have every reason in the world to support Trabzon - they don't want Turkey anywhere near them, after all, especially in the case of Armenia, with the hostile Azeris as a neighbor.

Greece and Turkey are opposed to one another. Trabzon is in opposition to Turkey. At a minimum, the mantra "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" would apply. The Federation would have no problem supporting Trabzon, though they would not invite them into the BSA or other organizations.

Yes, a lot of smaller arms - rifles, pistols, etc - would indeed have gone missing. However, you're forgetting about the quantity of them available in the first place, that they are easier to manufacture, and the possibility of importation. Yes, there would have been problems, as you describe, for many years with regards to several types of ammo being needed for the various kinds of weapons. But by the present, that shouldn't be a problem. Many countries have facilities by this point to make these weapons, though for the most part they wouldn't be all that modern. The Greeks, Celts, Nordics, and Alpines are all producing for export in large amounts by this point, in Europe alone. Several other nations would have larger stockpiles than they could possibly need, too. For that matter, military forces always have more of these - usually far more - than they need, too. I know that several units of the Canadian Army have double the number of personal weapons they need in storage, for instance - and I would not be surprised if Turkey had a higher proportion.

Basically, Trabzon could produce more primitive ones on its own by now. Past that... if you want modern weapons, I can find a place. Soviet weapons, or NATO weapons, same thing.

That's not the problem with the heavy equipment, Emp. In addition to damage in the fighting between border forces, and the chaos that followed, you're also talking about decades of use/repairs. Parts shortages, lack of maintenance, etc. Hard to steal or otherwise remove? Yes. Easy to keep around? No. Would be a few armored vehicles and a tiny number of tanks left by now, at best, with more modern ones being looked into. Those scout cars would be the vast majority of any such equipment they have. Same supply sources as the guns.

Lordganon (talk) 10:52, April 1, 2013 (UTC)

Getting five of them a hundred meters would be wishful thinking, I suspect.

Armenia and Georgia are in no condition to give away armored vehicles, true. The Greeks, however... Not quite the case. They are always upgrading their forces, after all. Some of their older vehicles going to Trabzon is probable, and free would be very doable. For them, at this point, being on reasonable terms with Trabzon would be better than getting paid.

You would be surprised just how simply arms and ammo can be to make, especially ammo. Would not be as good as before DD, but at a minimum they would be able to manufacture ammo. Guns and Mortars are a bit more difficult, but not impossible, especially if they produce AK-47s. Easy to produce, comparatively, those. And, irregardless, those things would be fairly easy to get internationally. I know that Crimea, for example, as far more small arms on hand than they could ever need.

Basically, they are going to have small weapons covered, and the ability to produce more, though not in massive amounts.

Lordganon (talk) 09:33, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

No worries - you've made the article far better. Lordganon (talk) 10:47, April 5, 2013 (UTC)
