The Trump administration has formally notified Congress that it intends to sell nearly $500 million in precision bombs to Saudi Arabia, a transaction that will fuel criticism from lawmakers who oppose arming the Persian Gulf nation over its record of human rights abuses and role in the war in Yemen washingtonpost.com/nation…
Persian Empire was just nice overall
1858 picture of the last Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah II. Fun fact: Persian word for Mongol is “Mughal”, it’s often overlooked that India fell under Mongol rule. First emperor was a direct descendant of Genghis Khan. [600x338]

These holes are called Qanat — an ancient Persian system of water supply. There was an underground canal that people used to drink water from or would get water for their plants. Just think about this: it was made around 3,000 years ago!
My dad wanted to show off his Persian Empire and asked me to post it here.

What are you favorite Persian or Mediterranean joints in, or around, Los Angeles?
New to Los Angeles, and would love to get some good recommendations.
Where Can I Buy Persian (or Iranian) Rugs?
I can unequivocally state that they’re one of, if not, the most beautiful pieces of art in the world. However, they cost a fortune here in the U.S. (more than $2000). I have tried Craigslist and eBay and the prices aren't cheaper than the rug retailers in my area. Is there any way I can buy them for cheaper? Are they cheaper in Iran? I am interested in the rugs from Nain and Kashan, but I truly do have an affinity for all of the different styles.
Is anything that isn't war related even allowed? I love my persian cat but honestly of all cat races theyre the most fucked up ones.
Persian Paladin. Not played this game properly in years - covid got me coming back for a bit, loving PoF!
Finally got round to playing a Cyrus game. I know Teddy's the National Park leader, but Pairidaezas make Persian Parks insane. Introducing the Susa National Park, my first 8/5/9/6 park!
An Iran. school book teaching Azerbaijani children that they are Persians who spoke Persian 100 years ago.I think they are still not over the fact that Iran is not a Persian state,that Turkic people have a population about 20 million and that they were ruled by Turkic people for the last 1000 years
You remember that one time when Alexander had to sign and wait out 25 truces while conquering Persians, or when Caesar had to break stability by -700 to conquer Gaul in 10 years? The war score system needs a rework.
The fact you are limited by 100 war score is such bullshit in times when barbarians slaughtered each other without limit and when entire kingdoms and empires were conquered in a single war, In a game in this setting war score should be limited by how well you performed not by some imaginary barrier, yes paradox I dont think it will make much difference if I either annex this Gaullic tribe now or have to wait for the truce to end so I can annex him years later
Today marks 2350 years to the day of the the Battle of Persian Gates, where the defense of Aryabarzan against a foreign invasion of macedonians proved that Iranians are unshakable in their resolve against slavery, leading to the failure of hellenism and success of Iranian culture.

Roleplay | How to roleplay a Persian themed Diviner Wizard? How to make him distinctive?
Hello fellas. I finally got the chance to sit on a player's chair instead of behind a DM screen. The character I have in mind for this campaign is a Diviner Wizard who has lost a very special person and is positive they're still alive. He hopes he can find them by means of magic one day. Now that I've decided what I want to play, I don't know how to roleplay it. I thought maybe as a Persian myself, and someone who knows a lot about Persian myths and legends, I can enjoy roleplaying a Persian-themed character. I know what a Persian wizard would sound like, but I don't know what would make it obvious to foreigners, who know a lot less about Persia and Persians, that he's actually Persian-themed and not Arab-themed.
So I'd like to know how you guys think an Ancient Persian would act in a make-believe world of fantasy? What distinctions do you think he must have to get it across? Is it his accent that must sound very Persian? Is it his actions? The way he dresses? Or even maybe the spells he knows?
Also, I'd be more than happy to get a few tips on how to roleplay a Diviner Wizard!
Edit: Fixed a typo that caused some misunderstanding.
Perks of having a Persian in your army
PSA: Farsi/Persian is a relatively easy language for English speakers to learn
Indo-European language with a subject-object-verb word order, no gender (not even pronouns), verbs conjugate with almost no irregularities, simple set of phonemes, only six vowels (compared to the 11-15 English has).
Different alphabet but will only take a couple hours to learn the 32 symbols and how they look whether they are in the beginning, middle, or end of a word.
In case you're looking for something unconventional to learn that isn't too difficult (and will open a world of history, literature, and poetry).
