      Hey man, love your work, just wanna ask-

      How do you draw your subdivisions? Most of your maps have a fucktonne of them and I honestly don't see any pattern for them. What method/source/corner-of-your-brain are you getting them from? Thanks.

        [...cont] where I'd draw national and sub-national borders alike along rivers, mountain ranges or what have you. It's not necessarily the perfect option, so sometimes I base my borders off OTL borders, just tweaked to better suit the geography.

        Hey man, it's all good. Just a quick question regarding geography- I only happen to have the incomplete version that's on the wiki- do you happen to have the full version?
        Aug 30, 2019
      5. XFE
        Nope. I've been working on that same incomplete version too.

      You're a Catholic school student, and a Min descendant, right?

      You must have come from the Philippines, haven't you?
      1. XFE
        Ah-it isn't everyday someone likes 14 of your posts in a day so thanks >.>

        But yes, I know I seem like the typical Chinese Filipino, but I unfortunately haven't been to the country--tho I would very much like to one day. I'm a second generation Hong Konger with parents from the mainland.

        You wanna collab a map akin to your Chinese maps?
        Also how well is your Chinese?

        Looks pretty nice what you've got going. Maybe we can talk this over in PM? I am a native speaker (a bad one at that though) so I think I can do fairly OK.

        Second, I very much enjoy Inner Eurasian history--they do kinda get a bad press in many nations today--Hindu nationalists hate the Mughals; Han and Korean nationalists hate the Qing; and the Huns in Europe are a by word for roving barbarians. And where China meets Inner Eurasia--that is fascinating for me.

        This really plays into how people, for the sake of nationalism, consider Sun Yetsen a saint (he wasn't. He was a pedophile and ordered the bombardment of civilian areas in Canton, while pushing blame to Chen Joingming amongst a great many things.); or praise the Taiping (horrific, Chinese Christian ISIS that committed atrocities on anyone who wasn't a Hakka) pisses me off.

        If you want an extended discussion, I prefer moving this to conversation. It might be a better place for discourse.

      在逆賊等之意,徒謂本朝以滿洲之君入為中國之主,妄生此疆彼界之私,遂故為訕謗詆譏之說耳,不知本朝之為滿洲,猶中國之有籍貫,舜為東夷之人,文王為西夷之人,曾何損於聖德乎。

        Found while writing an essay on Yongzheng. Translation:
        The rebels claim that we are the rulers of Manchuria and only later became rulers of China. Their prejudices caused many falsehoods. What they haven't understood is that Manchuria is for the Manchus the same as the birthplace is for people of the central plain. Shun belonged to the East Yi, and King Wen to the West Yi. Does this diminish their virtues?

        I was always a subscriber to the belief of Han and Manchu were all parts of China. A shame Kang's reforms didn't work out.
