Frankfurt: A tale of an angry little German city that could (Magni Mundi IV)
Chapter IV: Do we get to keep the funny hats if we convert?
1516 - 1524
Not many words, but lots of pictures (which some I have forgotten to take)
Oh my! This could be serious! How could anyone in their right mind go against the Papcy!
What you say? You get 10% bonus on production for being protestant?
Damn the stability! Recall the troops! Make white peace! Full speed protestantism ahoy!
Apparently, not having a priest around to relieve people's guilty conscious makes them work harder instead.
Apparently must be a good thing.
Apparently not everyone thinks so.
Hooray! Two of the biggest HRE members duking it out and not trying to annex me... Or something.
Since we're sitting around at -3 stab, now is as good as time to any to convert to a new government.
Now we've got a bonus of 15% production increase total! Work your slaves... err... I mean citizens!
Whelp... Here we are with administrative monarchy and protestantism.
Am I still an Imperial City? Ah who cares.
At least the citizens are working harder to make me more money!
(don't tell Martin Luther about this)
Hey... I've got CB on Ming. Must be their Schroedinger's cat again.
Three years and were back into positive stability. Things are looking up.
Except I get into a war with Brandenburg and finally annex Hesse. The Emperor slaps with me a silly "Imperial Embargo".
Phsah! I don't even have merchants in any CoT!
Luckily the population of Hesse converts through event to Protestantism and I gain a core in Hesse.
Huh? That was easy! I wonder why people don't stand up to the Holy Roman Emperor more often? (*FORESHADOWING*)
Now to take Brandenburg about of the picture. They'll make a nice vassal.
As soon as this final war is done, I'll just pay off my loans and get my inflation and bad boy down...
(I hope that is a white peace offer from Brandenburg)
Thus ends this narrator closing which is getting really old. Will that mean this silly questions will be asked at the end of each chapter? Can anyone read the events? Is Vertinox's 1600x1050 resolution too outlandish? Has the old man in the retirement home croaked yet? How is Poland this time of year? Shouldn't we be asking the Polish soldiers how they like Frankfurt this time of year?
