    Finlandia Universalis: An Alternative History AAR

    Hello and welcome.

    As the title says the story is about alternative history. I've been toying with an idea: What if a Finnish tribe had converted to Christianity and started spreading their faith to all Finns?

    I edited the scenario files so Mielus the pagan chief of Tavasts became the catholic duke of Tavastia. I also converted his wife. No other alterations were made.

    If I feel like it this might become a mega campaign.

    My game version is 2.1b and I'm playing Normal/Normal

    (Note: I edited the save file so the province of Nyland is Catholic. I think that is fair)


    This is me. I'm quite handsome and intelligent.


    Here's my wife. She's a schoolgirl . Albeit a very, very ugly one...


    That's my realm. That white spot in the middle of pagans. The province of Nyland is Catholic but the province of Tavasts is still pagan.


    I decide to enact Salic Consanguinity so nobody can take my title away from the family.


    I also like knights...


    I make my wife pregnant. It isn't that bad if you close your eyes.


    I'm now able to fill all empty positions with people who have wandered into my realm from somewhere.


    The king of Sweden tries to ally with us. I won't accept until I've conquered all the pagan lands in Finland.

    Stop being stressed and start converting that pagan province!

    Titti?! What kind of name is that?


    Hold your horses, darling!


    Well I'd be depressed too if I was incompetent in my job.


    I decide to bring Christianity to the poor pagans west of us.


    We win easily.


    Their chief tries to bribe me but I won't accept.


    Yeah, I'm a true badass!


    The pagan army attempts a desperate counter attack. No victory for Voitto.


    Nobody's going to have fun if I'm not invited!


    What's with all these people getting stressed?

    This is better be worth it!


    Was I too hard on him?


    Another son but with a better name this time.


    I do have a soft side...


    No. It's not Midsummer yet.


    The son with a girlish name dies.


    The siege of Finland is finally over.

    Thanks to everyone for the kind comments.


    The pagans in Tavasts are revolting. I decide to crush them and hope they convert. No luck this time.


    Isn't this the same pic as above? No, now they are revolting in Finland.


    Success!


    That was predictable.


    Yeah, I'm a machine!


    You can't trust teachers with these things.


    The pope threatens to excommunicate me so I accept.


    A girl? Nobody can say I didn't try.


    Time for pagan bashing!


    Crap.

    Nothing's better than a bit of propaganda before a battle.


    Despite I just left my castle I'm able to make my wife pregnant...


    Smells like victory!


    Damn Ålandians started sieging Finland.


    How fortunate!


    You just realized you are screwed, didn't you?


    Who dares to call me a coward!?


    Another son is born.


    The siege of Viborg is over. My dear readers probably know what the peace terms are.


    My new expanded borders.

    Soon there's nothing they can do to me as I gather more and more manpower. If they wanted to crush me they should have done it in the beginning.

    I'm glad you like it. I believe an AAR doesn't need a great wall of text to be enjoyable.

    I'm really popular among the Polish.


    My daughter gets sick.


    The people in Tavasts are infected by small pox. Maybe they now decide to leave their pagan gods.


    I don't believe in silly omens!


    I, I, er... *cough*


    About time. I had already used my first bishop.


    He seems quite competent as well.


    Like I wouldn't know what happens next...


    Yep.


    My mother thought I was a cold person until she met my wife.
