Hello all. I've done some reasearch on this both online and in an actual flesh and blood library. But I'd like to hear what you all think as well because all of the information I've managed to find is slightly vague.
So back in the day (way back in the day) the Chinese "invented" gunpowder and used it against the Mongols. All I'm wondering is how powerful this stuff was. Some sources say the Chinese merely used it to scare the Mongols since something like gunpowder was very new to the world. Some said it decimated the approaching Mongol army.
How powerful was this stuff? Could it kill an army? Or even destroy a nice, sturdy stone wall? I'm sure it got more potent as time went on, but I don't want to think much beyond the 13th or 14th century for my purposes (even though it was invented long before that). Thanks.
I can't seem to find any webpages on this or anything. What are some legal reasons a corpse might be disinterred after burial? I just need one (recently dead, maybe a few weeks) corpse dug back up for pretty much any reason.
How much money do we think House makes? How much money do we think Wilson makes? They have different specialties, but could they be offered the same fabulous somewhat administrative job somewhere?
Hi! Two questions today.
I was wondering, does anyone have any information on Russian fashion in the 1910's? Specifically very formal women's wear. My character is a lesser nobility in Russia before the Bolshevik Revolution. She's an only child and her mother died, so her father lets her get away with much more than most people. What are some colors/styles/patterns that she would wear that would be considered slightly promiscuous?
Secondly, how much knowledge was there before the revolution of the Bolshevik party? I know they had been heard of, but were people suspecting them of wanting to overthrow the tsar? Were people talking about them the way people nowdays discuss political parties?
Thanks a bunch!
