Might also be worth asking what the forumers know the least about, or would most like to increase their knowledge on.

I often go through 'phases' in my historical interest, and they often coincide with TW releases, once I've brushed up, I'll do a couple (me wants custom title)

I know a fair bit about Shintoism and I might knock an article off when I have time

But I won't go to England due to the prescence of scruffy in shottingham. - Scenter102

I am actively writing an article about Japanese sword construction techniques, highlighting the differences in the finished product between Japanese and European swords. I am just filling in some details, now. It should be done before Monday.

I, also, have an interest in writing the article about Shintoism; so if you want that one, you better get on it, Scruff.

That's what I like to see fellas! A little friendly competition and enthusiasm

It's worth noting that I'm half-complete on Bios of Oda Nobunaga and Uesugi Kenshin.

I can probably follow up your bio of Oda Nobunaga with one for Toyotomi Hideyoshi in the next few weeks.

Also, I will try to get an article up about the first shogunate early next week. Fortunately, we picked up a new client at my office about a month ago, and they've given us more than 20 new jobs in the last week. This is a good thing, obviously, but, unfortunately, it has taken away from my TW time.

Also, I came across some information on Leonhard Euler (the greatest mathematician you've never heard of), while I was reading an article about the development of the wave theory of light, in a collection of essays on problems in quantum mechanics. (Yes, I'm a bit of a nerd.) I got intrigued and started doing some research on him and found he was one of the most prolific mathematicians of all time; so I decided to write a bio and highlight of his major contributions to mathematics and physics for ETWH.

You still thinking about doing that Toyotomi one Bast?

Oda is almost ready (finally)

I am. I've been a bit distracted. Work's been busy, and my cat of 13 years, Bast, died January 23rd. Here's a pic from a year or two ago:



I got a new kitten last week. Her name is Freya, and here's a picture of her:



Anyway, yes, I still intend to write the article, though I haven't even begun writing; so it will take a little longer than expected.

Sorry to hear it, I have two cats and would be devastated should that happen to me.

(Your name suddenly makes a ton of sense, too)

I am working on a clan history for Hojo. It should be ready within a week or so.

I have had notes for a Takeda strategy guide in my pocket for about a month. Eventually, I'll buckle down and write it.

I have started a hattori clan history with little hope of finding infomation.

I cannot find anything exept for a wikipedia article and a few websites about ninjatsu.

I may do an article on the Gatling gun for the fall of the samurai unless a new site is under way for the game

An article on the Gatling Gun would sure be interesting, and it can always start on Shogun 2 Heaven and be migrated somewhere else if need be.
