NOTE:- with all these lists (families, allies and retainers) they are not finalised,
i still have resources that i am reading through
FURTHER in all my lists the clan a character first appears in the histories working for, is the clan he is in.
NOTE:- retainers and allies include mostly real characters, but some from "suspect" historical sources are included,
"suspect historical sources" that means family legends, stories, letters and the like
(alt names of heirs)
Kira Chikazane 1563-1588 (son of Chikasada) hot-tempered and combative
Kira Chikazane d.1600 (?? maybe a cousin?)
Kosokabe Chikayasu 1543-1593
Kosokabe Chikauji (d.1592) (son of chikayasu)
Kosokabe Sadachika (son of chikayasu)
the Tendo were Mogami retainers,
ALSO this dude
Nobesawa Mitsunobu 1544-1591
and thats as far as i got with Mogami
I am still sorting names for all the clans in my mod,
(and will be doing so slowly for a while yet)
the others i either have no further information on, or you seem to have a large enough list.
I will, however, be happy to send you a list of everything when i finish, but it may be some time - like a couple of months at the least, going through these names is very tedious if i want to avoid duplication.
Thanks!About how we did our research it was made narrowing it to the people that were alive in 1524-1600. Now it seems possible that we will expand our timeline to 1615(to the end of Osaka Summer campaign).So i will go through yours and our genealogies to perfect the name pools.Thanks again Barocca.This will help us a lot.
Yes you are right.Also the cross adoptions will make hard to determine who to put in whos family tree.But the good thing is that we are just basicly starting with Historicall situation,then its the players job to start changing history.
To be honest with you, if you want a VERY good representation of some of the major clan's family trees from 1550-1600, check out Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power, it has lifespans and information on over 600 figures from the time period.
Also, in the Azai genealogy, the two sons of Nagamasa, Manpukumaru and Manjumaru, are just childhood names. Had they lived to see adulthood, they more probably than not would have names involving the "Masa" character.
If anyone has any questions about anything in the period, feel free to contact me, I'm very interested in it, and am always looking up new information about it.
