Thread: Can someone help me with an Almoravid problem?

    Default Can someone help me with an Almoravid problem?

    It's about the name of the starting characters for Stainless Steel 6.0 (which incidentally I believe are the same as for the vanilla game).

    Sultan Tahir? Uh... like who is that guy? Historically I mean. And Crown Prince Miswar?

    I could be wholly off the grid here, but shouldn't that be Sultan Yusuf ibn Tashfin and his son Ali ibn Yusuf (we're in 1080)? I mean, it's not game-breaking here. But why? I thought SS had a minimum of historicity behind it.

    The only Tahir I can find is the second son of Yusuf, Abu Tahir Tamim ibn Yusuf ibn Tashfin al-Mu'izz. And not being a great scholar of islamic Spain, I'm still trying to figure out the link between this al-Mu'izz and the Zirid dynasty in Africa.

    Anyways, if anyone can clarify the whole thingamajib, I'd be really, REALLY happy!

    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
