I don't think the butterflies could have happened in time for the Patriot Rebellion to be more of a thing in this TL.
Well for the sake of all Africans involved this won’t turn into a Draka TL specifically lol. Thanks for enjoying the TL.An interesting variation would be similar to the Draka TL: have the Dutch declare war in 1779 and the British capture Dutch South Africa as a result...
Still, waiting for more...
There are some skilled craftsman and farmers among the settlers but most are sailors or served in the military, which is why for a while the tradesmen and people in agriculture will be directing and advising the beginnings of the colony.Just read this all and what an interesting idea and what great writing!
Are there skilled craftsman among the settlers, or are most sailors and former military?
This is definitely going to be interesting. The settlers I think are still going to have a rough coexistence with the Xhosa; an invasion is still an invasion, after all. How it will be different from Cape Town though? I guess we'll see.
Yes the Xhosa-freemen interactions will definitely be something to behold in future events. Its important to keep in mind there is no innate kinship between the two because of their skin color- they are foreign settlers like any other people. And both the freedmen and the British are going to have to reconcile with that, and try and overcome that to work with the Xhosa.Xhosa get a shot in the arm. That's always good.
Wonder how scary the Zulu will be.
I like the narrative, but I imagine it's more work intensive to check for anachronisms or details to make sure the voices of characters are correct.Just been going around, editing docs for grammar, and writing the next chapter of course. It will be posted in the upcoming days. I was wondering if you guys like the narrative format or would wish for me to change over to general summaries.
