What do we really know about Suleiman's personality, emotions and grief ?

Kit

Would you say that the proliferation of communications methods and the speed of communication makes maintaining control over large groups of diverse people impossible over the long term? Is there a relationship between communications technology and nationalism/balkanization that eventually disintegrates imperial control? Is the advance of technology the death knell of superstates? Or will it make central control easier for governments?

Could we ever see a Series on the Importance of Coffee in world history. Using the coffee bean as the main character and the control of which changed the center of power. From the Ottomans, to the British, and then to the Americans.

Christian

what was the outcome of the battle Suleimon died at? Also you guys should do this for extra play as well. Need to talk Dark Souls.

Krista

Given the numbers of Suleiman armies, The Ottoman Empire was quite well set when it came to early industrialization in order to arm them all with clothing, weapons, munitions, food stuffs and what not. Also where they get their gunpowder from ?

Stephen

Are there any cool instruments from the Ottomon Empire?

2
Christian

Is the tone of this series going to be the new norm going forward, or is it something that's going to be unique to this story?

2
Krista

What happened to the Ottoman Empire after Suleiman's death ? (does not need to be a long answer)

Why Do Empires Never Seem To Learn The Dangers Of Isolationism. Whether it be the Romans surrounded on all sides by "Barbarians." The Soviets crumble after even China seemed to abandon them in their "war" against Nato. And The Ottomans, The Dutch east Indies, or the Spanish each angered All of Europe after the heights of empire/colonialism. All Great Empires seem to crumble when alone facing countless allied enemies.

Did the lent tanks fit the UK regulations of having what is, essentially, a kettle in them? As I recall all British fighting vehicles require those - for heating rations and brewing tea, in order to help morale.

Stephen

Would a historic themed game which handles history in a way similar to how Dark Souls handles lore work for education and/or making people interested in the underlying history?

2
Stephen

Can you think of any games, digital or tabletop, good for this era from this perspective?

Cate

So will future extra histories continue to have more narrative story approaches to history and less an academic retelling akin to Suleiman's?

Daniel

Where did the Soviets get the technology to build the best tanks in WW2 ?

RMS

Will the Resource War cover things like different manufacturing paradigms, like the contrast between German specialization versus Soviet utilitarianism versus US "throw more money at it"?

Kyle

More detail about Lend/Lease, please? :D

Question mainly for Sean - What specific influences touched on the music for this series?

1
Kacie

Do you see any parallels between the difficulty Suleiman had choosing a successor and the succession crisis that followed Ivan the Terrible of Russia (a contemporary of his)?

Why did you choose such a sentimental ending to the last episode ? I was quite touched by it. Kudos for doing it! (ignore my other question)
