Run auroraChloe!  While you still can!  I came in to help with a bit of Chines translation!  Then, they roped me, hogtied me, and dragged me into this!  Help!  Anybody!  Help!

*is dragged back off into her little corner*

That reminds me...
It is my understanding that the majority of Chinese immigrants into North America prior to 1900 spoke Cantonese.  Mostly because the main port of exit in coming to America in the period was Hong Kong.  Shanghai became an important portal to the Americas in the late 19th century, bringing more Mandarin speakers to places like San Francisco and Vancouver. 

Having no direct links to Chinese or Chinese-American culture, I don't know how accurate this is.  Anyone know?

I also am not an expert with Chinese history.  I only know a bit of the national tongue.  From my own speculation, what you stated sounds very plausible as there would be a lot of disenfranchised Cantonese as a result of the opium wars with the British and subsequent fallout, looking for a way to make a living and survive.

I also suspect that a good number in southern China would be under the grips of the last dynasty, the Ming dynasty.  This would be the decades before the resentment towards the Western world broke out and the Boxer Rebellion of the early 1900s so that would also be a time of great poverty and want with large numbers looking to immigrate and find a way to survive.

Either way, those Chinese most likely would represent the poorer sections of the populations, the former farmers, the uneducated and unskilled laborers who would find themselves without jobs, and other types like this.

Like I said, I literally have no idea what I'm really saying, just going off a basic college education and some guesswork so any authority on the matter is free to refute me with fear or repercussion or hit to my ego.   :-)

I'd say two or three hundred horses, five or six wagons... and about a thousand fools.

Is there a character thread? 



i think the GM's want us to send the character sheets to them directly.  the 'public knowledge' thread is self explanatory   :P   

i'm working out the kinks, so to speak, in my character profile.  hope to post this weekend!

Hey, Lord Ming!  glad to see you're interested.  Do me a favor and modify your post above (we don't want everyone knowing the nitty gritty details of your character) and then send me a PM with the sheet for approval.  Thanks for the interest in the game!

No worries, aurora!  and thank you!  It's for the prop 8 deliberation.  Although I don't think I'll be sticking with it until June, when they're expected to make their deliberation.

Sent the CS to ya mate.  And if there are any brain cells amongst them the deliberation will come out in favor of sanity and love.  Two things that seldom go together, but in this case I think it does.
