I actually read a little tajik but thats because its in Cyrillic
And reenactment is pretty fun if I say so myself, go join the SCA heavy armored combat so we can clobber each other in the head...
Hey, go write something before I make pograms a thing lol
And LW, good to see you here man, IDK I wouldnt mind caucasian elements(lol the swarthy kind actually from the caucuses, not the generic...
Lol honestly if people dont contribute, ill bring in heavy cossack elements and Orthodox Christianity into the game

Lol I should of voted for a slavic langauge, this would of made things so much easier figuring out names.
Question, does anyone here actually speak or read the languages were trying to use
November 20, 2014, 05:50 PM
^This has to be about the funniest thing I have seen in a long time
November 20, 2014, 04:33 PM
Seems ok, but the whole part about men being unable to divorce women seems off. IDK in nomadic culture men and women were equal.
The other thing is actually older women would be more rare then...

Try this, IDK im gonna try to find the actual painting
EDIT: The Artist is named Vasily Surikov and the painting is called literally "the conquest of Siberia" and he has a bunch of cool...
I meant that jokingly, IDK I've taken to much caffeine and ritilan and have a paper to write and am aggressively and energetically doing everything but said paper. Things get kinda wierd lol
Um idk, because I'me awesome, and have a probably aspie knowlege of history, mounted warfare, and have studied inner asia on and off for the past 2 years
November 19, 2014, 07:25 PM
Well heres some modifiers from Persian
-i, the most common suffix used for Persian surnames. These surnames are in fact adjectives created by the adding suffix "-i" to person names, location...

Tannistry would make sense, sorta democratic, but we have a clan or family or dynasty that is held in high esteem, sorta like the Chingizids(Ghengis Khan's clan more or less) and the related Turkic...
I will do that but I have some of my own ideas too, IDK I dont have a proposal ready but am just broaching the idea and throwing some ideas around with people here and Im gonna gradually build a...
Hey anyone down to bring back Genesis of Empires, honestly it was about one of the coolest post GSTK concepts that people had in this subfora.
Though if I would do it
-No magic or supernatural...
November 19, 2014, 05:15 PM
Damn Genisis of empires was such a dope concept, I had a culture that was republican roman that was more or less christian and also had influences of germanic culture instead of greek. And I was...
November 19, 2014, 04:13 PM
How much are we going to integrate language into the game?
Because with NA and east asian languages? Because the syntax and grammar to them honestly make almost no sense to me, while most...
November 19, 2014, 03:39 PM
Creativity be damned were playing nomads lol.
But ehh, IDK we dont have to straight copy mongolian tengriism. So we have a sky father/heaven and mother earth and we revere our ancestors and the...
November 19, 2014, 08:23 AM
Surprisingly, Im actually pretty cool with all of this
I especially like Religion, its like Mongol/Turkic religion with proto-Zoastrian elements like the early Persians and tribal...
November 18, 2014, 09:39 PM
That well that seems to be a pretty solid outline
Only thing with religion is I would like to have the whole concept of heaven and fate and getting its favor mixed into the sky god idea.
November 18, 2014, 08:59 PM
Well for Indo-Aryan and Uralic-altaic languages, I think Tatar would be a good language that exists now that would be available for a Phenology
Azeri would be another language, being turkic, but...
November 18, 2014, 08:47 PM
In nomadic societies women would be respected and seen as more equal partners of men similar to modern marriages compared to pre modern agricultural societies where women where mens subjects. Also,...
November 18, 2014, 08:37 PM
Depends on the person. I draw with my right and and like my quiver low on my right side and I knock over the top and draw by pushing as much as pulling.
November 18, 2014, 08:30 PM
Government: Some kind of elected war chief perhaps, and also like a council of elders/clan heads
Religious: Im somewhat open as long as we have the sky god or sky father our chief deity.
November 18, 2014, 08:23 PM
IDK javelins seem kinda redundant with a bow, as you can just use arrows with heavier tips and shafts(phrasing I know lol), if you want more penetration (phrasing) and momentum for your projectiles ...
November 18, 2014, 08:05 PM
Yeah, in my poland game, William the Conquer took england, but his dynasty was kicked out so now they rule france while the Godwins have regained control of England and conquered wales. Though the...
November 18, 2014, 07:43 PM
I agree with BF to an extent, steppe people both had specialized lancers, but also I will say the lance(along with the saber to a lesser extent) would be a weapon of opportunity. So for most of the...
November 18, 2014, 06:28 PM
Not to mention quilted/padded leather and cloth armor like the guy in brown is wearing was exceptionally common among steppe peoples and was a rather effective form of armor...
November 18, 2014, 06:10 PM
Ill take that statement and state that polish and macedonian lancers, Pondronmoi Uhlans, Don Cossacks, Hungarian and early Polish Hussars, Stradiots, early norman knights, and Casmir Pulaski might...
November 18, 2014, 11:16 AM
From the technological era of the game it makes sense to have stirrups. I mean, once you know how to make them they are not super difficult to fabricate, I mean, just some leather and a wood or bone...
November 18, 2014, 07:07 AM
Yea I also like the idea of couched lances
And the lances dont have to be like purpose built Middeaveal jousting lances or the old Konotos lances. Honestly they can be 8-10 foot spears that just...
November 18, 2014, 06:47 AM
Lol if theres gonna be a cossack or russian civil war game, if you so much as try to join I will Pogram your character so fast his head will spin
And can I turn both votes to Indo-Iranian
November 17, 2014, 06:05 PM
lol aztecs and maroi on horseback, for the reccord if anyone wants to make a game about the maori, Im going to insist on east slavic speaking cossack dudes trolololo
November 17, 2014, 05:33 PM
Altaic-Uralic as favorite
Indo-Iranian as secondary
November 17, 2014, 05:31 PM
Well Ill go Indo-Aryan in the form of Tajik or Dari
for the second I will go Magyar
November 17, 2014, 05:26 PM
Iranian/Indo Aryan(The langues of Nomads in Centeral Asia that werent Turkic was essentially Archaic persian, so I view them as more or less the same choice)
Or if we...
November 17, 2014, 04:50 PM
Yeah I meant a composite recurve bow, IDK Im feeling kinda sick and out of it
November 17, 2014, 04:13 PM
Lol in the original threat I wrote probably several pages worth on horses I will copy it to this page after class today
November 17, 2014, 04:10 PM
I could see bone arrows serving as general purpose hunting/warfare stuff, while metal arrows are specifcally more for warfare against settled forces and armored foes.
I remember reading from...
November 17, 2014, 02:03 PM
Oh, well its 1120 and I just went on a crusade and had my armies annilated, my king killed, and now I have a 5 year old king with only 1/3 kingships of the Wendish empire and im 300 in debt. Time to...
November 17, 2014, 10:56 AM
IDK I just had a CKII binge (IDK it happens about once a semester I play about 10 hours or so) and I just formed the Wendish empire in Ironman, which is cool, but IDK after 1100 I think it would make...
