So there was a request, so let's discuss it.Also, could we have a north/west africa thread? There's arguably some issues with the cultures and religion there. The berber cultures are spread out a bit inappropriately (Masmuda especially but would probably need more provinces in morocco to fix this,) and much of its localisation shares spanish names and such which is sort of confusing. Ibadi as dominant religion in 1066 makes little sense, as well as there being no available tuareg rulers.
I assume that the religious setup of 1066 and beyond is not ideal and Ibadism should not be as spread as in 867, but it certainly should still be present in the Sahara, inland parts of Maghreb and also some parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (but there it should be replaced by the sunni religion after the conversion of Ghana of 1076).
I'm all eager to discuss the cultures setup of the Berbers. Here is the map, so please tell me what do you think is wrong there and why and how it should be better:
To make things clear:
Znága are the Sanhája (sedentary northern Sanhája tribes with fair skin)
Tagelmust are Veiled Sanhája (desert nomads with dark skin)
Imesmuden are the Masmúda (fair skinned mostly mountain tribes)
Aznáta are the Zanáta (fair skinned mostly nomadic tribes)
Kel Tamashek are the Tuaregs (Saharan nomads of mixed /mainly Tagelmust/ origin, with dark skin)
The division of Sanhája to Sanhája/Znága and Veiled Sanhája/Tagelmust had several reasons. One of them was skin colour, but also diferent lifestyle - while the SWMH Znága are mostly sedentary Sanhája living in the mountains, the Tagelmust are the famous veiled Sanhája - wild Saharan nomadic tribes. The distinction between nomads and sedentaties will be clear with the new version, where the nomads got special "Beduin tribe" retinues, whose numbers will largely increase if they are independent rulers of desert provinces.
I suppose that the remarks about the wrong distribution of Masmúda were meant to an older version of SWMH in which the name Masmúda was wrongly used for the Tagelmust.
If you answer today earlier in the afternoon (CET), there would be a high chance that your proposal might be included in the next version which will be released in the evening.
