@Gryphon?
Is this good?
@MonicaCellio? Is this good:
 
Looks not bad after skimming it. Let me take a minute to read it a little more thoroughly.
 
Oh.
Just feel free to read it, so I can fix it before publication.
So, @Gryphon? Is it good?
And I may need to add some images to make things interesting.
 
1:53 PM
Yeah, an image or two would be useful. It's a little short, but that's not a problem. Whatever length works best is fine.
 
Agreed.
More information is in the references anyway.
:P
Reload the page.
:P
Better?
@Gryphon? Is it better yet?
 
Excellent. Pictures are always helpful. The new Juggernaught looks a little sad without one.
I have to go to class now. Sorry about that. ttyl
 
2:56 PM
@Green Coo. What did I mention I would create?
 
3:17 PM
@James I don't remember.
@James chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/27736?m=41300316#41300316 This is what I have. it's not very pretty and it doesn't show plate movement directions.

@Green Just remember. I was going to update the map to include the plains/forests/etc.
maybe some rivers.
 
5:45 PM
@Green This is amazing.

Hey @MonicaCellio, was Golden Sails 1 going up today or tomorrow?
 
@James Yep, that's pretty much it.
@James Perhaps a clean up of the tectonics map and the creation of the climate map?
@James While unstated, it bear mentioning that Science and Religion have the same problems. What is logical depends on the logical rules you're working with.
 
6:32 PM
So, is the introduction to the Cuban Missile War a go?

This is one of a set of stories exploring the fictional world of Quenaunor. The previous story is here, and the first story is here. This is the first part of a four-part story. The next part is coming soon! Stanor, a priest of Aghrad and Chief Merchant of Kaegharm, sniffed the salty wind coming through the large window above his desk and grimaced in distaste. The window overlooked Kaegharm’s h

@Gryphon "It would not at all strange if he" <- I think there is a "be" missing between "all" and "strange". That is a very good cliffhanger.
Very nice
 
7:19 PM
@FutureHistorian I would change "do not confuse that with the fictional anti-extraterrestrial defence force known as X-COM, even though it is a hilarious reference" to something like "not to be confused with the fictional anti-extraterrestrial defence force known as X-COM". People will understand the joke without explicitly stating that it looks like a reference. The sentence "(the one I chose to go with" is missing a closing bracket.
You use a lot of dots "……." - most people just choose three. Maybe on a separate line to signal a small pause. But not that many in the middle of a paragraph. I've never seen that style, so if you prefer it you should obviously keep it - but you should take a moment to think about it.
 
Oh.
Oops. I can fix that.
 
Otherwise it's good.
 
@Green When making the climate map, are you going to go more world scale, or just stick to the original region?
 
Oh.
Fixed it (I think).
 
@FutureHistorian Yeah, looks good.
 
7:27 PM
:D
Now, what do I do about Part II?
Which is the events that unfolded in this timeline, narrated from a 2017 point of view.
Alternate, that is.
55 years since the bombs fell.
Since modern civilisation collapsed.
Since the Cuban Missile War...ended the world.
And all because Vasily Arkhipov allowed a nuclear torpedo to be unleashed on the Americans.
 
If you are asking me: no idea. I can read your second blog post once you have the draft ready, but I have no idea about the topic itself.
 
@AndyD273 I'm not making anything. I'm simply posting what other people hand me.
We'll have to go for a global scale eventually though nothing about this world is unchangeable.
 
7:45 PM
So if we mess up the climate on a continental scale, we can always fix it later. Heck, maybe I'll finish that climate calculation project I was working on previously and we'll get actual "scientific" numbers for it.
 
8:04 PM
Also, we have a lot of leeway. Getting climate right is really really hard so there's maybe 10,000 people worldwide who could look at it and say "Nah, you f***ed that up."
 
8:26 PM
@Green Yeah, I was just thinking we could set up some generic Hadley cells to start with, and having a general idea of the locations of the other major land masses might help... Though maybe not.
The Hadley cell, named after George Hadley, is a global scale tropical atmospheric circulation that features air rising near the equator, flowing poleward at 10–15 kilometers above the surface, descending in the subtropics, and then returning equatorward near the surface. This circulation creates the trade winds, tropical rain-belts and hurricanes, subtropical deserts and the jet streams. In each hemisphere, there is one primary circulation cell known as a Hadley cell and two secondary circulation cells at higher latitudes, between 30° and 60° latitude known as the Ferrel cell, and beyond 60° as...
 
@Gryphon today. :-)
@FutureHistorian looks good to me. Thanks! If you haven't submitted it yet, please do.
 
9:11 PM
@AndyD273 Generic Hadley cells are a good start
We have enough Earth-like parameters that generics are a good start.

Wait, what?
@MonicaCellio? Remind me again how I am supposed to submit the work?
medium.com/@futurehistorian382/… Just in case, here is the post for submission.
