    Part five

    As the year 1494 began, the time became right for the formation of Germany. Brandenburgs diplomats where sent out in every german realm to carefully feel how other german states stood to the Idea. Apperently many electors liked the idea, but it seemed to be not enough one vote was missing. So the Diplomatic very distiguished Johann made one more vote in his favor by releaseing Mainz as vassal and granting them the right of the electors.


    Then, finally on May 16th 1495 Johann could open officially what he had in mind for germany.


    Although this opening caused a great deal of concern it was accepted by most princes.

    Unfortunatly Johann didn’t live to see the results of his efforts, he died on January 10th 1499 and was followed by Joachim I Nestor, a Monarch, as good as Johann in diplomacy.


    And then in 1500 it was done!
    Germany was formed by Brandenburg, with Joachim I Nestor as first Emperor of Germany.



    Celebrations started all over germany, and many states joined the german Empire immidiatly.
    Only oldenburg resited and declared war at germany instead.


    Although now being a great power, and united Germany was still far away from being the strongest state in Europe, it was split up in several parts, highly decentrlized and hated by most of iths neighbours.




    The stage was set for one of the most interesting histories of all the nations worldwide.

    so, that was what I had played allready some time ago, I just wrote it down now.

    That are my stats rightnow:
    I'm at trade and infra 3 and therby in the upper field in the world.
    My land tech is 4 therby being in the midield.
    And my naval tech is 3 also midfield.

    The DP sliders you see in the pics above, and well you also see how hated I am ^^

    From now on I start to play while i write, so the updates will be far less regulary, maybe once a week, maybe more, who knows.

    I'm still not sure whether I should change to prtestantism oder stay catholic. right now I have one vote for converting, any more?

    Why doesn't Germany have claims on the German speaking parts of Austria?
    Very few of us realise with conviction the intensely unusual, unstable, complicated, unreliable, temporary nature of the economic organisation by which Western Europe has lived for the last half century. We assume some of the most peculiar and temporary of our late advantages as natural, permanent, and to be depended on, and we lay our plans accordingly. On this sandy and false foundation we scheme for social improvement and dress our political platforms, pursue our animosities and particular ambitions, and feel ourselves with enough margin in hand to foster, not assuage, civil conflict in the European family. Moved by insane delusion and reckless self-regard, the German people overturned the foundations on which we all lived and built.

    Does Germany also have a core on Savoie? If so is that kind of odd?

    Well done. Now that you are Germany you should get a bit better relations to the other powers, especially Poland, or you will have a naughty war in the east. Or maybe you can get Austria to be a vassal?

    He doesn't seem to have claims on the HRE though, just on some parts of it. E.g. Cologne is most certainly part of Germany/HRE in every definition, yet he doesn't have claims on it.

    Nice work, I'll follow this one.

    You should take out Austria before they get too strong; but on the other side I really would like to see a conflict between Prussia/Germany and Austria-Hungary way before 1866.

    BTW: You play the Hohenzollern! Convert to Protestantism!

    You´re playing as Germany, protestatism is the only way to go,
    One does not simply walk into Mordor, but if one did, it would probably be the shortest walk ever.

    Nice job forming Germany!

    Definitely following this one.

    I say go Catholic. You have the culture to convert most of Germany, and it will be useful for when you expand in Italy.

    AFAIK you don't instantly get cores on the electorates, they follow in some events just like austrian cores. You'll notice he doesn't have the cores on Saxony, Palatinate and Mainz either.
