Hi guys! Hello everyone!

I'd like to stream AoE2 while providing a historical commentary :-)

I have a Master degree in History and I'm specialized in the second half of the Hundred Years War so I'll start streaming with a playthrough of Joan of Arc's campaign ^^

First stream tonight (06th March 2019) at 7pm (EST)


Tell me if you'd like to tune in ;-) Or drop by my Twitch /asinus_docet !

See you around :-)

You got 2k3, your WK is bugged to begin with.
SON
Say dad, why are the French so salty?

FATHER
Because of the gabelle*, my son. They never recovered from it.

* The gabelle was a very unpopular tax on salt that was supposed to be temporary to support the war effort. It was introduced in the 14th century and was only truly abolished in 1945.

Did a class on Life in medieval cities last semester, and I must say that I nerded out quite hard when you came in with literature, primary sources and pictures of the time. Also the little side stories are really enjoyable. The format would be perfect for youtube imo.

One tip: use a marker tool or your mouse to show us the locations on the map cuz u were trying to put it in the center of ur screen but next time would be easier to follow if you mark it with some tool or just hover your mouse over it, same with family trees :smile:

Thanks man! Nerding and geeking out about History is what I'm aiming at ^^

I'm new to OBS, I'll be working on it. It frustrated me too the last time ;-)

I'm still off tonight so I'll do a quick speedrun + recap of yesterday's stream for anyone who's missed it. It's supposed to start in the next five minutes :-)

I've only watched part of the stream so far, but I love what I see so far.

From someone that generally doesn't find history very interesting, I'm impressed you got me hooked. Your passion and knowledge are showing.
Keep up the good work! I followed.

Just watched some of your stream from the VOD. Very nicely done. I really enjoyed the walk through with added explanations and facts.

I'll try and tune in live next time to interact.

Congratulations on finding an interesting and enjoyable niche that aligns with your skills and love of the game.

Thank you for your comment ^^ I'll tune in next Monday and Wednesday to talk about the Vikings as a civilization. Those will be short streams. I'll cast the Siege of Orleans next Friday and that will be a "big piece" so to speak :-) I hope to see you there then!

I hope this goes to youtube! :smile:
You're not the only one who asked for it. I don't think my stream is yet YouTube worthy but I'll put it online since several people are requesting it :-) I understand why it would make it easier to watch the video if you miss the live. So I'm currently working on my YouTube channel! ^^ Thank you for the comment and the kind support!

Youtube "worthy"? Theres a hundred million petabytes of cute cats, people kicking their hamsters, and rock concerts recorded with cell phones. Your content is easily in the higher tier and thus there's no reason to be too self-critical. To me this concept per se seems ideal for youtube especially if you dont want to, or have the time to, constantly stream the amount of hours that building a twitch channel seems to require.

Extreme self-criticism is one of my many flaws. Thank you for your blunt honesty ♡ I've slightly edited my first stream and it should make its way to YouTube by tomorrow. I will also launch a blog to support the video content with some written documents (in case I'm quoting a book or a source and someone wants to access the text).

Tune in next Monday at 7pm CET for some cool Vikings talks ^^
