The Forgotten Tomb of Genghis Khan: how could the burial place of such a famous figure remain lost to time, and why do some want it to stay that way?

Life:

Genghis Khanβ€”an honorary title that often replaces his birth name Temujinβ€”was born sometime between 1151 and 1162. Few records of his early life exist, and what few there are contradictory. What we do know is that he was likely born in Deluun Boldog, near the mountain Burkhan Khaldun and the rivers Onon and Kherlenm in northern Mongolia.

Most people have at least a basic understanding of Genghis Khan’s life; as the founder of the Mongol Empire and the first Great Khan, he ruled over one of the largest empires in history. Often considered to be the world’s greatest conqueror, he united the fragmented Mongol tribes and led numerous successfulβ€”and brutalβ€”campaigns across Eurasia. Interestingly, despite the savagery of his campaigns, Genghis Khan was noted for his religious tolerance and his encouragement of the arts; during his rule, he’s believed to have built more bridges than any other leader in history. He also invented the concept of diplomatic immunity and helped the Silk Road to thrive again with a postal service and protection for merchants.

Sometime in August of 1227, Genghis Khan died. Although we know it was sometime during the fall of Yinchuan, his exact cause of death is unknown. Many attribute it to an injury sustained in battle, but others believe it was from illness, a fall from his horse, or a hunting injury. According to one apocryphal story, he was stabbed by a princess taken as a war prize. Mongols had strict taboos on discussing death, which meant that details were hazy, which in conjunction with the amount of time that’s passed, makes it impossible to say which story is true. Whatever the case, he was dead.

Burial & Legends:

As was traditional in his tribe, Genghis Khan had previously arranged to be buried without markings. His body was returned to northern Mongolia, ostensibly to his birthplace, and buried somewhere along the Onon River and Burkhan Khaldun mountains. Other legends have also said to have asked to be buried directly on Burkhan Khaldun. According to yet another, likely apocryphal, tale related by Marco Polo, his funeral was attended by over 2,000, after which the guests were killed by his army, who were in turn killed by his funeral procession, who then killed any who crossed their path as they took his body to its final resting place. Finally, the slaves who built the tomb were killed, the soldiers who killed them were killed, and the funeral procession committed suicide.

Hu Tao looks more likely to appear on April 4ths Qingming Festival (Tomb-Sweeping Day)

For those unfamiliar with the Qingming Festival, from google:

"The Qingming festival is a day for the Chinese to remember the dead. The Chinese people visit the tomb of the dead on this day and offer food items, willow branches, accessories and other things to the dead. This ritual stems from a long held belief of life after death in the Chinese. "

Hu Tao is Director of the Funeral Parlor so makes sense they release her on this Traditional Chinese Holiday.

This is just speculation, I do not work for Mihoyo.

Assassin's Creed 2 has Templar Lairs and Assassins Tombs which are very much like Prince of Persia Sands of Time and Warrior Within. I didn't expect this and absolutely love this game.

This was not something I expected at all. I mean sure you have a very smooth Parkour system where you can easily jump from rooftops to rooftops and a lot of the elements in Assassin's Creed are taken from Prince of Persia it's no secret. Assassin's Creed 1 felt a lot like prince of Persia in the beginning but still setting was very different. Now here in Assassin's Creed 2 I'm absolutely fascinated with the Templar Lairs and Assassins Tombs. They are so much like the castles in Prince of Persia games. Even the manner in which they show you the path when you enter a new area is awesome and completely reminds me of that. Didn't expect that. It's such a pleasant surprise

Moreover, the cities in AC2 at night look stunning. What other AC games have the day/night cycle ? I read somewhere that RPG trilogy games have that but IDK. I have played 1 and Syndicate before. I have all the games and I'm playing them in sequence so I'll get to know eventually but it'll be great to know that as well.

Playing Horizon Zero Dawn made me realize what I want from Tomb Raider

I have to preface this post by saying while I have played some of the older TR games, my memory of them are quite fuzzy and only the reboot trilogy remain relatively fresh in my mind.

The games at its core are pulpy action movies translated to the interactive medium with collectibles and puzzle sections dressed as tombs. While these are fine at it is, something that always bothered me about Tomb Raider was how little it leveraged the feel of uncovering hidden tombs and ancient civilization/culture.
I never cared for "ancient artifacts" beyond gameplay incentive of finding hidden routes and I never found the old civilization worth the time to think about. The flavor text in collectibles rarely amounted to anything. The "stories" are bad but I'm not even talking about that. The setting that should be the driving force of intrigue are nothing but a backdrop for enemies to get in Lara's way and a justification for having supernatural enemies. You rarely "discover" a tomb, you are guided through a platforming section into a puzzle.

Now, Horizon ZD on the surface is nothing like Tomb Raider, at least as the franchise stands now. But what is does have is a intriguing tale of lost civilization that you slowly piece together through meaningful text and audio recording collectible. You survive and live off the land by fighting enemies. And unless you follow map markers, you can actually find tomb by yourself. In Horizon they serve primarily gameplay function but I can easily imagine how they can be improved to add to story. Throughout my playthrough, a feeling that was ever present was one of discovery, partly due to the ever present allure of a lost civilization and partly the robo dinos just being fascinating. That feeling of intrigue and fascination is something I feel Tomb Raider would benefit from most.
I know many people are sick of open world games but freeform gameplay, exploration and discovery is something a guided experience can never give and TR needs the former.

Ofc this is my subjective opinion so I'd love to hear about arguments both for and against this.

Growth changes are awful for Tomb Kings and made them unfun to play

I don't understand why would anyone want to slow down TK gameplay and even further limit your army composition. Right now you may be able to recruit one giant construct around turn 90 and thats all. You will end campaign before you will be able to make another T5 settlement. So you are forced to play with mostly skellys for your whole campaign and watch other races use fun units.

Unlike other races you cant build one T5 recruitment building and spam this awesome unit. No. Just one titan for you mister!

For me ME Arkhan is less fun than Beastmen currently...
