Story: Battle of Shiroyama (Castle Mountain)

This is a bit of fiction I'm fiddling with after reading over the general ideas about Japan in 1879 and the lead up to the status quo in Japan. I'm not quite done with it, but I'm doing research about the Satsuma Rebellion against the Imperial government of the time to get it to end up how they are ...

The Big Easy 1879

After reading over the GM's guide to 1879 and looking at the local political set up of the NorthAm Continent with it's various separate republics and one kingdom, by all rights New Orleans should be in a prime position to become the major international port/trade hub for the CSA. But I cannot imagin...

Re: Gruv Lancer Snail

That is weird enough that I must use it at some point. 'Death by snail' has a ring to it. And lets not mention magical frogs with even more poisonous skins....

1879: assimilation of the Ryukyu Islands

I stumbled across this information while doing a bit of research. "n 1879, the Meiji government announced the annexation of the Ryukyus, establishing it as Okinawa Prefecture and forcing the Ryukyu king to move to Tokyo." As this is the time of The Empire of Japan, it might get some mention perhaps ...
