    Same as I do for TRP, ironically. A video company is erecting a branch intended for parttime video specialists, think in the lines of viral Youtube campaigns. I sent my resume and the trailers I did for TRP as an example, so I've got a meeting with the big cheese next week in Antwerp

    Oooh. Interesting. *especially from the likes of a business graduate like meself*

    The best bit in that game is this PM from OY to his packmates:

    OrangeYoshi: ... I'll also put in a preliminary hunt order to Hunt Oky's replacement. (THE_SPLIT if I'm not mistaken). He publicly asked for a sub, and that is slightly more common in Lite if you have some sort of important role.

    This is OY putting in a hunt order on Oky's replacement, who is none other than OY.

    Directly after the declaration of independence, the British Empire declared war on their former colonies, attempting to resubjugate them. Unfortunately the great depression had severely crippled their military, and the Colonial Forces struggled to gain control. Supporting the dismemberment of the British Empire, the French declared a colonial war on England, and immediately sent forces to the fronts to support the partisans. After four months of warfare, the British military had no choice but to give up: A peace treaty was signed and England acknowledged the independence of it’s former colonies. All the newly independent nations joined an alliance led by France, known as the Allied States.
    By 1922, France and the United Kingdom were mortal enemies, as France vied to further decrease the influence of the British Empire.


    French forces invade British Palestine from Syria in the Second Colonial War


    The Second colonial war, or the Jerusalem war, erupted in 1925 when France invaded Palestine without warning, attempting to occupy the British Middle-East. Fortunately, the Colonial Forces were better prepared this time around and managed to halt the French offensive in Jerusalem. The Jerusalem siege lasted for more than a month, after which the French forces were beaten back and forced to surrender. After their defeat in the Second Colonial War, the French vied for revenge, and let their eye fall on Egypt, and the crucial Suez channel.


    The French advance in the Third Colonial War


    The Third Colonial War, or the Suez War, started with a massive French invasion of the Nile Delta in 1927. British forces were stunned and quickly overrun by the French attackers, and France quickly conquered the northern part of Egypt. The French advance came to a standstill when they attempted to cross the Suez channel, where they were met with a superior British Force. While the battle in Egypt raged on, a leading member of the Parliament, Oswald Mosley, ordered a referendum to decide on the course of the war. Unanimously, the Parliament voted to break the French with brutal force, and the day after the entire British warfleet was sent into the Mediterranean to engage the French ships.

    A massive naval war ensued, in which a young Admiral, Vincent De Nil, gained considerable fame: His fleet alone had managed to sink over 12 French Battleships, and destroy the French capital ship, the Heugin. A tactician of speed and concentrated firepower, Fleet Admiral De Nil often managed to outwit his French enemies and trap a large part of their fleet.

    The coolest thing is, no matter how alternative the history is, the 1936 scenario situation is 100% the same (Except for the channel pact part).

    All-RIGHT!

    I finally finished reading the TCP...WOW...still just wow!

    After this whole thing gets completed, I am seriously looking for a final PDF/Word file and then I can print digital copies that are saddlestitched booklets through work (all in color). I'll put this alternative history on my bookshelf next to the Turtledove novels...

    Thanks for sharing such high quality writing/gameplay/vision with us!

    @ Vincent, Congrats on the job interview and best of luck!
    Trying to explain to my five year old daughter how cool my game is compared to pixiehollow.com. I got owned!

    How will "MOD 2009" play out with the economic/political environment?
