  1. Re: Wars of the Gods: Ancient Wars | Creating the Roman Empire

    Experimenting with a cavalry-only army looks like fun! Going for dominance of the seas with expanding fleets sounds smart and it looks like Rome has a great selection of units for fleets as well as...
  2. Re: [EB2 Hayastan AAR] The Aura of the Orontids (EB 2.35)

    Your growing kingdom does look nice! It looks like your strategy of aiming for the reforms was very effective. Those satrapy buildings with their bonuses and extra local units sound useful. I can...
  3. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: Sep 15]

    That's a really interesting moment between Mun'at and Mubsamat - it sounds like the way that he challenged her (as an equal, not an inferior) changed their relationship (at least from her...
  4. Re: Derc Plays Through World History (Current: Rome II - Caesar in Gaul)

    It's good to see that Rome is providing a challenge - as you said, it looks like Attila-like pressure with attacks by multiple Roman armies. The ceasefire with Massalia and the liberation look like...

    Re: Wheel of Names TWR2 - Grand Campaign

    That's a very accurate summary of Syracuse's challenges in the early campaign. (I stayed out of the Rome-Carthage war as much as possible, taking a city in Illyria and slowly stabilising it with a...

    Re: Islamophobia in the West

    Didn't you say this?



    You said that these are anti-Muslim attacks, I agreed with that, so what's the problem? I didn't say that we agree that the attacks are Islamophobic.



    When I say...

    Re: Islamophobia in the West

    As I showed, my original claim had links to evidence that those examples of attacks were motivated by anti-Muslim hatred. You read in an assumption which wasn't there.

    While I may be mistaken,...

    Re: Islamophobia in the West

    The question was: is there Islamophobia in the West? My answer was: in Western countries there are attacks on Muslims motivated by hatred of them, so there is Islamophobia. To make that argument, I...

    Yes, you did. As you know, when I made that general argument, I included links to examples. As I have shown, in the news stories I linked to, there was evidence about the motivation of the attackers.

    Re: Islamophobia in the West

    I'm saying that attacks on Muslims, motivated by irrational fear or hatred, happen in Western countries. Does the fact that there are also attacks on Muslims by other Muslims disprove this?

    Plague and excommunication sounds like significant problems, at least it seems that the alliance with Venice is already useful, despite the internal tensions in Sicily which it caused. Good episode!
