Friesland was my very first choice as I got EU II, first game crashed, second saw me annexd by Burgundy.
So now I like to play Holland, so I thought I could start again with Friesland. AGCEEP 1.54 this time.
My goal is to unite Holland and get all Friesen (the dutch and ther germans) into one country or at least have them as a vassal.
I will give me german culutre/or core if I controll the german Friesen (Oldenburg). Oldenburg will get durch culutre or core if they controll Friesland (in case I am already Holland).
I will also try, to gain all dutch, friesean (and belgish) provinces, spread the true faith, and build up a nice little colonial empire.
Friesland is small, but unlike in vanilla is not surrounded by Burgundy (yet). We already have a taxcolector and 200 gold. 5000+1000 men in the army.
The slider settings are not very useful:
First we go for more power to our chieftain (+1 Center) although the freeminded Friesen wont like that.
I just noticed that we are the Vassals of Brabant, we dispose our chieftain to cancel that (Stab at -2 now).
New monarch: Edo Wiemken.
This leads to a civil war (I am glad that I already took my stab hits to -2) [-6 stab +5 RR].
In April, we are back at stability 0 and Hannover invites us to an alliance with Bremen and Hannover. I accept. (Other alliance: Gelderland with Berg, Oldenburg with Holstein, Brabant with Burgundy, Cleves, Lorraine and France)
After that a daughter was married with a nephew of the Duke of Brabant, so that they wont declare war on use withour a thought.
Hannover did the same with the oppressors of the german Friesen (Oldenburg) wich was not what I whished.
Brabant has to cede Holland to Luxemburg.
Mecklemburg insulted us. The funny thing is, that they are part of the Hanse (like Bremen and Holstein) so if I declare war, Bremen will leave our alliance and Holstein the one with Oldenburg.
The small fight for power was over, RR -5 again.
Mecklemburg insluted us again.
Hayo Harldas is no the chief-chieftain of Friesland.
Good news from our diplomats:
Mecklemburg really seems to hate us: Now we have been warned.
If they want a casus belli, they can have it: We insult them twice. (misclicked).
Some nobles ally with England, (-1 stab, casus belli).
Royal marriges with Hannover, Bremen, Brandenburg and England. Now, most of our Hayo twelve children are married.
We also insult Meckelmburg again (as soon as the casus belli expired).
Heavy disputed between Gelderland and Berg (allies).
1424: Trade level two, we build 2000 cav., just in case. (Damn these Mecklemburger!).
Any advices and comments are very welcome.
