While they'd be useful, it seems to me like the only significant population of Highland Cattle is to be found in eastern North America. So, unless you can find a large farm of highland cattle in BC, Yukon or Alaska, I'm going to guess that the local Laskans have just bred up their own variety of cold adapted cow from some local species, probably Holsteins.
At the risk of being the killjoy, they'd probably just associate any tech with any analogue possible, so the motorcycles are just fancy horses, radioactivity is just black magic, and all that. Much like how for a long time and even today many make space battles just 18th century naval battles IN SPAAAAAAACE.Nicely done! It's definitely interesting to how such groups like the Hell's Angels and bikers in general have adapted to the neo medieval world.
(And now I have the image of post apocalyptic bikers riding complete with motorcycles and machetes riding into battle against mounted knights... Actually I do wonder how the nation's of Medieval America would view a post apocalyptic world ala Fallout, Wasteland, Mad Max and Fist of the North Star in an ISOT or portal scenario. )
Does anyone have a worlda of this TL yet?http://users.erols.com/mwhite28/medvam/images/rivermap.gif
This clears up a couple in the midwest. The rest have no name and will have to be made up.

This is going to be my next post, but the outbreak of Covid-19 has led to a mild resurgence for Drive-In theaters. I'm thinking the use of drive-in screens (or small scale recreations of such) would be popular in the years following a collapse. The best way to recreate the cinematic experience would be Shadow play--using lighting and silhouettes would make it much easier to implement visual effects and optical illusions, (and the largest number of people could see) it would be a more efficient use of light and time, and a lot of plays were historically performed outside anyways. Generally the best way to go back in time for people who miss their summer blockbusters. The Ralph Bakshi Lord of the Rings even gives a good idea on what it could look like. (Though puppets would also be very popular)I have a feeling this would happen in medieval America...
Ivan Redsails was a member of the Castro dynasty who failed to overthrow his cousin and was exiled to the Bahamas where he became a pirate. The Thunder Chief was an Amerindian nomad from Thunder Bay who launched multiple raids on Wisconsin. Darius the Black Prophet was a self-proclaimed messiah who overthrew the city of Montgomery before he and his followers were killed by an invasion by the State of Mississippi.This was good. Can you expand on the people mentioned at the beginning?
So, are the Dons supposed to be the feudal lords of medieval New Jersey?After the fall of Lancaster County, and it's reorganization under the American Government, the State of Pennsylvania has become the primary frontier against one of America's biggest threats, the Capos (lancers) and Dons of New Jerzey. As a result of New Jerzey aggression, the Federal government has enacted several edicts to make this land far more defensible.
Wanna PM/post your ideas on Jersey? I'd be interested in hearing them. Also, I think that the Americans would refer to New Jersey or some english form of Jersey. Perhaps among the ruling class of Jersey, they call it Novo GiosiLike the PA post, teshky. Only quibble:
For New Jersey, I'd prefer that it be called "Novo Giorsi", a term from one of the pre-TK II threads that I quite liked.
Further, I have quite a few thoughts on Jersey that I'd like to share before we get there.
