yes, that would be nice.
Oh, yes I shall! I’ve been swamped with work and another project (check the ASB forum in the coming week), but when things ease up I’ll post it up!Would you link the new thread here once the TL starts up again?
The island was mentioned in the latter updates in the main timeline. There was once a theiving trade culture on Marajo Island, or Pawu in this timeline, which controlled Amazonian trade. That was the island the Asgardians messed up.Ah, I was a bit lost with references to all the rivers and islands. I suppose the island the Asgardians ruined was Cuba? But I don't know of any great Cuban river, but then I've hardly studied the geography of Cuba closely. Generally I wouldn't expect a river worth worrying about on any Caribbean island but that might just show how little I know.
Or is the island Santo Domingo? One of the greater Antilles I imagine, Bahama islands would have even less in the way of rivers.
So I was hoping there would be added footnotes for all the place names--I remember that "featherland" is Mexica, or possibly more the Mayan country (by this time the great golden age of the Maya OTL has come and gone, but possibly trade with the northlanders has enabled a revival on newer terms). It could be either Mexico or Central America then I guess, or the rising new empire might straddle both, southern Mexico and most of Central America. Have the Mesoamericans undergone a fair number of waves of infections and thus developed the ability to maintain enduring ties with Mirwick on their own stable terms? (That won't mean Eurasian diseases won't be decimating, the Old World stew is just plain virulent and diverse, but it gives them a leg up anyway). Or have Mirwick traders just learned to be cautious about killing off their trade partners (usually anyway)? But by and large the river names and so on would send me searching the thread to remind myself. Can there be a map at this point?
And what, by 1400, are the limits of the Known New World? Has anyone journeyed down to say the mouths of the Amazon, or even beyond to say Rio de Plata? Have any of the European influenced peoples gotten to the Pacific coast, say by Balboa's shortcut in Central America (these as guests, not conquistators, obviously) or by some epic exploration beyond their organized Native rivals around OTL Michigan to leapfrog past to say the Columbia, or is everything west of the Mississippi and south of the Caribbean all Here Bee Dragouns territory?
