Second message from the Quetzal Khanate.
« on: November 09, 2014, 00:24 »
I am an emissary of the Quetzal Khanate, bringing word from my Khan.

Our Khanate has accumulated much plunder and loot from the recent Junktown-Quetza war. This success brought us much prosperity and schadenfreude to hold malice ceremonies. However, we are yet to bring these weak western dogs to their knees.

Our medicine men, advisers and people of importance have given our Khan a valuable acknowledgement. A war involving NCR seemed inevitable, as our relations have deteriorated out of disrespect, aggravation and hate. We view them as weak dogs with no honor, wisdom or respect for their neighbors. For this, our great Khan has taken this opportunity to declare war.

Prepare yourself!

Quetzal Khanate doesn't even mean anything!

Quetzal is mesoamerican bird, meaning tail and feathered or some combination of those both. The word itself is of Nahua origin and was often used with serpent to form Quetzalcoatl, translated as feathered serpent, common mystical being popular all along mesoamerica.

So it doesn't make sense to connect "Quetzal" and "Khanate" and identify as "mongolian".

Maybe you have meant to be Qasim Khanate? Quasim Khanate was buffer/vassal state of Muscovy/Russia to help conquer and pacify other local khanates in post-Golden-Horde territory. Namely Kazan khanate. After conquering of Kazan, Qasim khanate was dissolved, as it was no longer deemed important. By that time, Russian adoption of nomadic style of warfare (cossacks) with addition of guns destroyed any advantage of former nomadic-style warfare (Russia was pretty much defined by centuries-long struggle against nomads). Some historians even argued that the plagues, which pastoral nomads in central asia often transmitted between Europe and China, caused more damage to them than noted guns, as farmers were able to replenish their numbers more quickly and thus nomads lost the wars just by centuries-long attrition (coupled with technological developments that enabled higher yield of farming with more balanced diet and improved hygiene).

I have knew that. The "faction," is merely 'fanmade' with some random global cultures thrown in it, to be qualified for Fallout. That includes mesoamerican cultures on warfare, not entirely, however. Compare it to "Khans," where the name is a complete mistake. There could be only a single khan, and anymore would bring unrest within said Khanate, tribe, or such.

Towards, Darlain, if i'm mistaken, JTS is an RP faction, no? Enough said.

Yeah, I didn't encounter a single Hawk since war has been declared, or Quetzel Khanate.
Where is the loot coming from?


It wouldn't kill you to exercise kindness.
