if u tell me u would read three hundred pages detailing the extensive process of domesticating the wheat that made the bread that the main character is eating ur either lying or ur really into wheat in a way i’m not entirely comfortable with
Besides, in the real world, wheat was domesticated around 8000 years ago in the Middle East and spread to Europe (assuming the kinds of fantasy stories he’s complaining about are set in Fantasy Europe) long before the medieval era, so it’d be completely realistic for people to just act as if wheat were always domesticated and not think about it.
Also, there really weren’t many entrepreneurs during the feudal era given that limited liability wasn’t a thing and getting stuck in debtor’s prison for a failed business venture was basically a death sentence. There would have been craftsmen and merchants and suchlike, but not really the culture of “small business owners” he seems to be envisioning. Equally, the middle class as a large-scale phenomenon wasn’t so much of a thing until the decline of feudalism in the late fifteenth, early sixteenth century.
And all the nobility being established at the same time and all more or less recognising each other’s claims was basically exactly how the history of England went after the Norman Invasion. All the major noble families of the feudal era (and most still around today) could trace their lineage directly back to the first group of conquering nobles that came over with William I, and this difference in their origins from the common people would have been immediately obvious even after hundreds of years.
Pedantic: The Twitter Screed
Pedantry without true knowledge
I mean if you want to get pedantic and specific on a fantasy world you could always read the entire appendixes for LOTR.
