    With subtly different hairstyles differentiating the Knightly orders.

    Hair gel becomes beeswax or tree sap. Stinking knights with wild braids charging at you. What a sight to see

    Also with the presence of african american blood within the wider american population, curled hair should be more common in Medieval America than in Medieval Europe. You might see southern knights with afros/ afro-textured hair running around whipping peasants.

    Do camels roam the American desert?

    It was discussed in the last thread, and the answer is yes. In fact I believe i may have made a few references to "Camel-Jockeys" in this thread.

    One idea: A big thing that sets medieval American armor apart from their European counterparts is that they used scavenged washer rings for creating mail armor with smiths continuing with the design to this day.

    Idea seed: what has become of urban criminal gangs in this world? Could be cool to imagine how they might have changed over time

    I'm imagining they got mostly decimated with the collapse of the influence of the cities. I know the mafia become nobles in New Jersey but other groups like the Crips probably got wrecked.

    Any possibility of there being merchants who specialize in the selling and trading of ancient plastics? Of scavenged from thousand year old land fills.

    Little late to the party but what did he do get banned, I've been working on maps for the various nations in this thread as a project for College and wanted to find out before I posted them in case you guys have rules against it.

    probably not? if only because it brings up uncomfortable questions about the nature of the regression

    Why would we have rules against that? By all means!

    I stopped making maps because the Cascadia one was getting too complex and I never finished it. I decided to simplify it somewhat, but now I don't have access to a computer with InkScape

    He was a sockpuppet so he got banned.

    One question: is there any kind of Trans-Atlantic connection between North America and Europe/Africa?

    Probably. American fishermen sometimes get swept to Europe. This happens with some regularity. There might be contact via Newfoundland <-> Greenland <-> Iceland <-> Europe i.e. the Norse Route.

    While OP is still not updated, it has been cleaned up quite nicely and a few broken links have been fixed.
