I actually really like some of your ideas about An-Luru. In my mind he was more of a Gilgamesh-like character, somebody who is known mostly from legends of later people with much of their actual life shrouded in mystery. I could definitely see him becoming slowly deified by later Miscayan civilizations (Narrakians, Sutarbans, Kadimarans, etc.), who could then produce a religious/semihistorical text similar to what you have in mind.I wanted to create a religious text for this An-Luru figure being a dominant early religion in the region. I was imagining that An-Luru would be a "Savior" like figure with the text ending shortly after his crowning as King and his founding of the City. Would you be okay with me beginning work on this or do you have different ideas on how this may work?
To further note on how I would portray An-Luru, he'd be a more violent form of Jesus with his backstory taking inspiration from apocryphal texts of Jesus as a child. Since you also noted how the Founders of Akwar created the language, this could be used for the religious text to claim that An-Luru himself wrote the texts.
Will do.Could you please mantain them, if only as an extra reading material? (maybe compare the 1.0 to the 2.0 versions?)
There is a Haxamanid empire map I've posted earlier in the thread but its kind of out-of-date. No map for their attempted Pelasian conquest....yetive been lurking here for a while, and i must say, this is a super interesting project!! will there be a map of the Haxamanid empire, or a submap of the Aegean conquest?
The Far East in General, It would be cool to see in special the Japan-analogue, since at the time of the Early Imperial Dynasties it was already was in a state of petty kingdoms, and (if the Traditional Dates to the Emperors of Japan are correct) has already a sort-of-empire in the process of existingAny ideas as to what places I should add more detail to?
Anything in particular you have in mind? Serica could definitely use more.The Far East in General, It would be cool to see in special the Japan-analogue, since at the time of the Early Imperial Dynasties it was already was in a state of petty kingdoms, and (if the Traditional Dates to the Emperors of Japan are correct) has already a sort-of-empire in the process of existing
Sincerelly? I would say go bonkers, I know Serica is meant to be an analogue to China, with its large fertile plain and location in the "middle" of everything, but it would be interesting to see a bit more expansion on its periods of fragmentation (maybe even see some nations permanently becoming separated if location permits), or, when you reach the dynastic period, maybe play with it instead of doing the sequence like it was in Earth, or establish an Sengoku-like Period under the Serican EmperorsAnything in particular you have in mind? Serica could definitely use more.
