    The Legacy of Saint Brendan: A History of the Western Hemisphere, 512 to 1400

    It's going to be in the Guide, since its not pertinent to the main story.

    The Legacy of Saint Brendan: A History of the Western Hemisphere, 512 to 1400

    Right now, not really, since they were always secondary to the main plot and what notes I did have I am reworking (especially the near caste system I wrote about earlier this year). Presently I am working with the idea they worship the God of Abraham and Ishmael, holding that the Children of...

    The Legacy of Saint Brendan: A History of the Western Hemisphere, 512 to 1400

    Honestly, Ismailism is one of the top items on the docket for a “rework.” The current build is “semi-Messianic Arabian Judaism,” but that’s subject to change.

    18th century army survive against an army of the late 19th century ?

    Omdurman being the prime example of a late 19th Century force absolutely wrecking a less technologically advanced force. If I remember right, no Dervish soldier got within 150 feet of the main British line? - Ethiopia defeating Italy isn’t a great example, since at least half the Ethiopians...

    18th century army survive against an army of the late 19th century ?

    It probably can’t, aside from scouting/light raiding purposes. Though cavalry charges were still “technically” a thing in the late 19th century, a lot of the examples we have don’t end very well when its a low-tech force assaulting a high-tech force. The vintage carbines are probably worse than...

    18th century army survive against an army of the late 19th century ?

    I mean, even a second-rate European army in the late 19th would be terrifying to an early 18th Century soldier. Artillery that can outrange any cannon, and likely fires explosive ordinance that would make tight-packed formations hell. Maxim guns, even in small numbers, would potentially counter...

    The New Order: Last Days of Europe - An Axis Victory Cold War Mod for HoIIV

    Also, the music mod, by chance, started playing FORTUNATE SON when the event for WerBell unifying Eastern Siberia fired and I nearly burst out laughing.

    The New Order: Last Days of Europe - An Axis Victory Cold War Mod for HoIIV

    WerBell just emanates some sort of energy so far on this run that immediately makes him my favorite unifier.

    The Legacy of Saint Brendan: A History of the Western Hemisphere, 512 to 1400

    Thank you! A lot of good observations there. There was a Christian equivilant to Mansa Musa. The Guide will go more in depth, but the Gaelicians had a lot of fun going along the Western Coast of Africa.

    Why did Jimmy Carter fail as President when he had 61 Senators and 292 Representatives when he was elected?

    Relationships between Democratic Congressional leaders and Carter were... complicated, to say the least. Carter campaigned in 1976 as a political outsider, critical of both Gerald Ford and a “do-nothing” Democratic Congress... which that Congress did not appreciate. His liason office was also a...

    I basically ignore the idea of “canon” in this mod, so I could care less who the devs decided on.

    Hey all! As I continue to work on the sequel project to A Legacy of St Brendan I find myself encountering a mesh of lore and information I wrote over the past two years that I need to piece together. Additionally, some aspects of the world outside the Hemisphere (Europe, the Ismailis, etc.)...
