OK, despite my previous statement, I did make some tweaks to the theme...

including the fact that you should be able to see the date in the mobile/narrow view now.

...

I'm liking the thematic tweaks! Still looking forward to seeing what v2.1 is gonna look like  :)

As I now work with a large number of Russian speakers - I can conclusively state that any word you see spelled in Latin letters is - at best - a rough transliteration of the Cyrillic.

I have people working for me named:
Sergei
Sergey
Serhey
Siarhei
Serhay
and probably 2 or three more variations...
all of which are actually pronounced the same:   Ser-gay (and even that is an approximation, since the "Ser" is actually closed to "zhier"
the one that really got me was Uladzmir (pronounced vladimir)

So, Ghoezats could literally be an valid and alternative transliteration of Cossacks

I think Tom Frank would be best to answer this as he wrote a lot of the Fantasian stuff, but I do believe it is just a slight change to the Cossacks.

General Discussion / The Ghoezats
« Last post by Jimby on April 08, 2019, 06:18:22 AM »
I found this game when I was twelve years old, and I have spent years, quite literally years trying to figure out all of the references included. If I could ask, could anyone tell me where the term Ghoezats came from? These people the Fantasian privateers who I figured were analagous to Cossacks.

Could anyone clue me in as to if this was a reference to something in Russian that I didn't get? I know that the Fantasians were a term for OPFOR in war games IRL, I was just wondering if the Ghoezats had a similar origin.

Yup. It's stable and playable. I wasn't crazy about the depictions either, but the game play is there. It's unfortunate that it'll almost certainly never see expansion...

I haven't played but I heard it is ok. Yeah the art is really not great. i am looking at a very different direction for the new release.

my apologies for editing your post.

Actually, it looks like Marco accidentally hit the EDIT button instead of the Quote/reply....  :P

the post is marked as « Last Edit: Today at 11:21:58 AM by EarthdogMP »

since Marco has admin rights, he can edit other people's post and I think he did, by accident - and then typed his own reply thinking it was a quoted post

oops, sorry guys.
