Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Incidentally, while I wouldn't claim to be a "pinyin expert", conversion between pinyin and W-G is largely mechanical and I would be happy to provide any help I can on that front. Most of the time I can also figure out the various non-W-G, non-pinyin transcriptions that randomly occurs in the WRG li...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

We've largely lost contact with our Pinyin expert; the only thing I'm sure of is that we hate Wade-Giles. Are you asking if we missed a transliteration? Quite possible. I believe the two lists correspond (I'll check later) -- is Qiang and Di the correct transliteration in Pinyin for the Wade-Giles ...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Later Philistine list have troop-types (spearmen and Gibborim) that are restricted to 1099-600 BC. That's the same time span as the list itself, so the restriction is pointless.

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

The Southern Xiongnu list has the general listed as "Cataphracts or Knights", but the list doesn't contain any Knights as far as I can see. (I'm incidentally a bit skeptical about the classification of any Chinese or near-Chinese cavalry of the ca 300-600 period being Cataphracts in Triumph! terms: ...

Re: Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms

That's fine of course - it's not like I'm in an hurry here. While at it, I'll take the opportunity to remark that by the standards of game designers I've interacted with - and I'm by no means only thinking of the sometimes communication-challenged Barkers here - you're very good at acknowledging and...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Are all lists supposed to have troop type descriptions now? I note that the Sabirs and the Chionites and Western Hephthalites lack them.

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

In the Umayyad list, there are two allied contingent labelled as "Sogdian, Khwarizmian, or Other Khurasani Allies", one drawn from the Sogdian list, the other from the Tarim City States one. Is there any reason the former shouldn't simply be called "Sogdian Allies", and what's up with the latter - t...

Re: Meshwesh minor errors and typos

Should the "Jiang and Qi" list mayhap be "Qiang and Di", corresponding to the DBX "Ch'iang and Ti" list and explaining the relation to the Former Qin (a Di dynasty)?

Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms

Meshwesh has one list for "Northern Five Dynasties" and another for "Later Tang and Southern Five Dynasties". There's also one for "Shatuo Chinese dynasties" (which both the forgoing seem to lack as an Enemy). My best guess would be that this is meant to carve up the late Tang and the Five Dynasties...
