  1. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    One interesting development of the Pyrgos trade hub could be the introduction of modern banking into China. One of the many reasons that traditional Chinese economic growth kept periodically getting hit with Malthusian population crises and dynastic collapses was that they didn't have the...

    If that's the title, then that works. Exarchate sounds pretty cool.
  3. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    This means that the Spanish Armada will force Constantinople and the Katepanates to consolidate themselves to create a unified command in the east. We might see the rise of a new governmental rank to deal with local issues without having to communicate with the heartland: Dominions. Dominion of...

    Personally, I want the Maori to colonize the Wu remnants and form the great Aotearoan Empire and go on to rule over all Polynesians.

    Every post has a small number next to it. If you click that, you'll get sent to that specific post. Then you can just copy & paste the link. EDIT: ninja'd!
  6. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    The Romans are constantly suffering small humiliations between periods of catastrophe. The entire Time of Troubles was caused in large part by the military not being professionalized, and the wars against Iskander and the Idwaits had humiliating losses due to the officer academy curriculum being...

    The original thread was before threadmarks were implemented on this site. You can find the edited and improved version of the earlier chapters on Basileus' Patreon.

    It could play host to a Manchu realm that never conquers China, which is more than likely since the current Chinese Dynasty is still growing in power. I think this Manchu state (if it ever comes to pass) will instead look more locally, trying to conquer Korea or try to defy getting conquered by...

    I think the Ethiopians own it these days.
  10. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    That's too pagan and republican. Much better to go for this:

    I think the Triunes will eventually compromise on the Lotharingia issue by recognizing the independence of Lotharingia while taking the title of the Duke of Burgandy for themselves. Either that or ram their head against the Dutch forts until one side implodes from the strains of war.

    Kinda weird that he's a Slovak referring to Slovakia as the other. Other than that, great update. So the Austro-Hungarian Empire federalized? Franz Ferdinand got his wish in the end?

    Islam didn't make it big in Southeast Asia until Sufi missionaries helped translate and merge the Quran and Muslim practices with local languages and customs, helped along by Muslim traders from the Middle East spreading roots in all the urban port cities. The destruction of the Sultanate of...

    That doesn't mean they've "collapsed" as you said. They're still powerful empires that can project power and will put any would-be invaders in the ground. The Marinids still own the Old World's gold supply and constantly flood the Mediterranean with corsair pirates. The Ottomans are a Great...

    You're the guy from months back who was making no effort posts about how the Muslim world was too weak and how unbelievable it was that Christians pushed them out of the Levant and Egypt. Have you actually read this TL, or are you just here to make another low effort post whining about Muslims...

    In OTL the Mughal Empire controlled something like 1/5th of Humanity's collective GDP. Let's hope that this India manages to retain that level of strength and avoid fragmentation.

    That Russia's too damn big. I can see Poland, Mongolia and Manchuria. They're remote enough and far away from other Great Powers to make the conquests relatively uncontested. Everything else is super reaching. What's the history of this world? EDIT: Oh it's an Nationalist-Reactionary Tsardom in...

    That'd depend on how syncretic the Koreans turned out. The reason that the Yi Dynasty killed all the Christians was due to the converts sticking to the parts of Christian doctrine that said that Kings come second to God and that Confucian rites and ancestor-worship rituals are all heathen idol...

    This reminds me of the way that Buddhist monks ate fish without killing a living creature; they saved them from drowning.
