"Steampunk without steam" by Eugene Billingman - Thu, 02 Apr 2015 21:17:57 EST ID:CSu4lNmY No.55059 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I'm trying to create a fantasy world.
A main concept I've decided on is that the people in this world have some semi-modern technology, but they do not understand steam power/combustion whatsoever. The idea is to create a mixture of medieval and industrializing/victorican Europe.

For example, there are "railroads" which consist of laid track, large rail cars but no engine - they are pulled by a team of animals. So there is some concept of "global communication" and traveling large areas.

Realistically, could a civilization harness electricity without ever understanding combustion? For example would it be too great of a suspension of reality for the civilization to have working radios, but no engines/cars/whatever?

I know there is some evidence of a Roman "factory" where they made fish products or something - could large-scale mass production be achieved without any steel (requires smelting) or any steam power? What information do you have on water or wind powered manufactoring? General discussion I guess, kind of lost but want to take this further.

Trains predate steam engines by about a century, but only managed smaller loads, like a single passenger car for any distance.
They still used iron tracks, but wooden ones aren't unheard of.
For long distances and trains of any size, pic related is just silly.

WW1 reverted to oxen-pulled trains at the front lines, since the smaller tracks/trains were faster to setup/repair and didn't leave a big plume of steam for the artillery spotters.

It didn't sail for two years. It sailed for like ten minutes. The Vasa's maiden "voyage" took place on Aug 10 1628, for some reason that map is showing that it was built at the shipyard then warped to the dock it set sail from, and acting as if this was a component of the "voyage". (warping is essentially towing a ship to a destination rather than rowing/sailing it against the wind)

I think if the water has reached those gunports the ship is already gone. They'd serve no purpose as some sort of emergency bulkhead on a modern ship. And they're just wooden shutters anyway they wouldn't really keep water out except for the better part of a splash.

Must have mods for R2TW?

My problems with the game pre-EE were AI just standing outside forever during sieges where they weren't overwhelmingly numerically superior, clients always rebelling after two or so turns and the fact that there were about six or seven unites to the game which were just re-skinned to accommodate different factions. Oh, and the awful pay-to-culture DLC.

I'm giving it another chance with mods and EE, though.

Question for the Americans. While in history class, did your schools ever talk about why Dr. Martin Luther King jr. was in Memphis, Tennessee? I put together a little series that talks about his involvement there and what went down before his death. I interviewed people that were involved in the event that brought him to Memphis. I have two more parts after this one.

I had to do a civil rights essay and I picked Bayard Rustin because I had never heard of him. He is often forgotten about because he joined the communist party in his youth and he was gay.

Adu Boahen for late 1700s-early 1900s and David Birmingham's "The Decolonization of Africa" for mid 1900s - present-ish. I don't have many good resources for early modern-ancient history, and the Birmingham book isn't perfect, but they both give good overviews of recent history

Are you talking ancient history?
That will be a challenge. My husband is actually from Ghana (West Africa) so I am always asking him Q in regards to Ghana's history....It's weird, but little is known and it's rather complex. I don't think much was written down. I find it surprising that he himself, who spent 20+ YRS in Ghana and who is very educated, knows little about his own people's history...I do know In his country there are like 50+ languages (mostly variations of dialects) and multiple cultural groups like the Astanes, Fantes, Inzumas, etc. At one time there was some sort of Kingdom accompanied with tribal warfare. There are also historical stories known by many Ghanians like the "Golden Stool". The history though is just not very concrete, linear, and varies depending who you talk to you. I've looked for history books concerning Ghana and have found very little. If I go to Ghana I may find more useful sources, but am not sure.

Africa is vast! So I would take it country by country or by North/west/south/east Africa.

You will find more out more info related to recent history (Independence from EU powers -1900s). "The Shadow of the Sun" is a fantastic book! Beautifully written by a Polish journalist who spent large amounts of time in Africa from late 1950s to 1990s. Check it ouuuuuut! Will def. give you a better idea not only on Africa's history, but it's cultural and it's problems.

Take care OP

100-600 AD – an incredibly Evil Society Emerges in Khazaria:

Khazarians develop into a nation ruled by an incredibly Evil King with an ancient Babylonian Black Arts occult Oligarchy serving as his Court. During this time Khazaria become known to surrounding countries as thieves, murderers, road bandits, and for assuming the identities of those travelers they murder as a normal occupational practice and way of life.

600 AD – The Ultimatum is delivered by Russia and other surrounding nations:

The leaders of the surrounding nations, especially Russia have had so many years of Complaints by their citizens that as a group they deliver an ultimatum to the Khazarian King. They send a communique to the Khazarian King that he must choose one of the three Abrahamic religions for his people and make it his official state religion and require all Khazarian Citizens to Practice it and socialize all Khazarian Children to practice that faith.

The Khazarian King was given A choice between Islam, Christianity and Judaism. The Khazarian King chose Judaism and promised to stay within the requirements laid out by the surrounding confederacy of nations led by the Russian Czar. Despite his agreement and promise the Khazarian king and his inner circle of Oligarchs kept practicing ancient Babylonian Black-Magic also known as Secret Satanism. This Secret Satanism involved black-magic occult ceremonies featuring child sacrifice after “bleeding them out”, drinking their blood and eating their hearts.

The deep dark secret of these secret occult ceremonies was that they were all based on ancient Baal Worship, also known as worship of the Owl. In order to fool the confederacy of nations led by Russia which were watching Khazaria, the Khazarian King melded these Luciferian Black-Magick practices with Judaism and created a Satanic hybrid secret religion known as Babylonian Talmudism. This was made the national religion of Khazaria and inculcated the same evil that Khazaria was known for before.

Sadly the Khazarians continued their evil ways robbing, murdering those from other surrounding countries who traveled through Khazaria. Khazarian robbers often and often attempted to assume their identities after they murdered these visitors and became masters of disguises and false identities, a practice they have continued even to this very day along with their secret child-sacrifice occult ceremonies which are actually ancient Baal Worship.

1,000 AD – Russia and the surrounding nations have had enough and take action:

>I bet you can't find a legitimate historical text with this information.

Because Jews own the second hand books stores and destroyed them all?

>Khazaria long served as a buffer state between the Byzantine empire and both the nomads of the northern steppes and the Umayyad empire, after serving as Byzantium's proxy against the Sassanid Persian empire. The alliance was dropped around 900. Byzantium began to encourage the Alans to attack Khazaria and weaken its hold on Crimea and the Caucasus, while seeking to obtain an entente with the rising Rus' power to the north, which it aspired to convert to Christianity.[17] Between 965 and 969, the Kievan Rus ruler Sviatoslav I of Kiev conquered the capital Atil and destroyed the Khazar state.

>Beginning in the 8th century, Khazar royalty and notable segments of the aristocracy converted to Judaism

So basically you admit that there's no real evidence for what you posted, and then you post some historical information about the Khazar state that has nothing to do with the OP and is common knowledge to people who are interested in history?

A Khazar state existed, a lot of its rulers were followers of the Jewish religion, and it was conquered by Kievan Rus. AND?

The Ottomans destroyed the remnants of the Eastern Roman Empire. That must mean the Byzantine emperors were child rapists who were well-versed in the dark arts.

Actually no, that's stupid as hell, because sometimes countries just like to wreck other people's shit.

Well, according to a new video that was released on YouTube a while back, a full skeletal remain of Leviathan was found via Google maps in a land-locked area in Saudi Arabia that is currently unexplored near Jabal Al Lawz (Mt. Sinai) in the wilderness. The coordinates for it goes as follows (and go to google maps and paste this in) 28.5634N, 35.2808E.

The things that bible got right is so accurate that it's kinda creepy and even as an atheist I cannot deny what it actually said about this monster dragon-like thing. The bible said that it was massive (the google map serpent was estimated to be 1,900 feet long and a football field at head-length) and it also said that it was to be found near Mt. Sinai in the wilderness in where the children of Israel roamed. What do you guys think?

And the craziest thing about it is, is that at the head of it, you'll see that it has a T-Rex like mouth and head/face structure if you look close enough. It's pretty freaky. (and btw, I added a photo just in case if you're too lazy to look it up yourself).

>You never actually looked at the source of the 616 idea did you? Little hint: It`s pretty obvious that 666 is what it said.

Both numbers are attested too in multiple variants of the text, but 616 is indisputably the "original"; 666 was a modification probably meant to make it thematically closer to Jesus' 888.

See this? Get fucked.

It`s not indisputably but I admit I was basing my knowledge without that discovery in mind. However, a 2nd century scholar, that lived before that manuscript, affirmed that it was 666.

Basically, I`ll admit it may be 616 but I definitely won`t go as far to say it IS 616.

My apologies for the extreme doubt.

Of course some 2nd century church father would affirm it was 666. Nero was already dead. They were composing the Bible out of a dozen of Biblebooks all with different messages. And they wanted to create a Biblebook with one clear doctrine to keep the people together.

Just change 616 to 666, and pretend that the Number of the Beast refers to a future event instead of something that already happened.

But most scholars agree that Revelations itself was written 30 years AFTER Nero`s death.
