Yes, most of that is indeed stupid sexy Flanders. However, Venice is over there too - Panama and Tierra del Fuego, plus a couple Caribbean islands.
Also, just to be clear about a little something: I've been quoted a couple times like this:
While being elected emperor was certainly nice, that's not the something that I noticed which I'd been hoping to see for quite a while. Rather, I had been hoping to see the label "Aachener Europe" on the map of the ancestral Aachen homeland.In my Aachen-moves-to-Sinai game, I just noticed something that I've been hoping to see for quite a while:
They elected me Holy Roman Emperor a little while back, after which I deigned to rejoin the Holy Roman Empire
Well, bright side is, as Emperor, you have alot more manpower... and a bunch others.

The Langbardaland Saga -- My AAR
Well, I am officially done with my France game. OPM spy-spammers piss me off to no end, so I've stopped playing. Anyway, there was something I wanted to share from this game and that's the spectacular luck I've had with leaders:
Every single leader but the last two had an 8 somewhere. And this is with no lucky nations. Nicolas I Henri is arguably the greatest. An 8-7-8 that lasted for 32 years. And I made him a general in order to pass the Militia Act. And then Louis XII, immediately after Nick there, had a nearly 50-year reign with his 8-6-7 stats.

"There is a special providence that watches out for fools, drunkards, children, and the United Sultanate of Arazia*."
Maps of the United Sultanate of Arazia, also known as Morocco. The Sultanate was created by the Marinid sultans, who moved their seat of government to the city of Tenochtitlan in the 1500s. The Maghreb is now governed as a colonial territory, while the Iberian emirates of Portugal and Granada are autonomous (except for Andalusia, since the Seville Center of Trade is too valuable to be left independent). The Sultan is also Malik of Swahili in a personal union.
*The great western continent named after the Arabic explorer Aydin Arazi, who discovered it in the mid-1400s. The word "America" is merely Christian propaganda.
Surely Morea will be able to form Greece
Nope, right now there is no "Form Greece" decision, frankly i dont even know what the requirements for that should be, but in any case one of the primary requirements would be that Byzies cannot exist, and they currently do in the Greek islands:
And that Morea's success is nothing compared to some behemoths in the east!
Principalities mod for EU4: Not all monarchies should be kingdoms. Adds principalities (outside of HRE,) duchies (inside of HRE) and counties (inside of HRE.)
Election mod for EU4: You no longer choose your elected ruler, your citizens do.
Fixed Karelia for EU4: Fixes the map in Northern Finland/Russia.
Austria on Very Hard... can i say the easiest country to play by far? With the +3 Habsburg diplomatic skill I am able to diplo-vassalize everyone i want that i small enough, thus i can control the elctors and be elected all the time, thus I can enjoy an immense army. I can only imagine how ridiculously easy it can be on normal...
Lux inheriting Bra is not even weirdest thing, Lux actually growing by expanding Brandenburg blob is.
Current Byzantium game on Death and Taxes
Started in 1356 and been constantly expanding from that on. Every time my infamy is less than 5 I find something to conquer. Last time fell Castile, though I had to be content with less than what I wanted since my stupid allies came to hijack sieges with single regiments while my 150,000+ army could capture only mid-northern parts of the Country. Aragon had fallen earlier, though I still want Madrid as it has a CoT.
Britain is going to be a very tough nut to crack. We've been allies since late 15th and they have been very useful at whacking colonial powers and just intimidating smaller nations from not joining the fight when I attack someone. Castile was allied with Poland, Hungary, Portugal and Burgundy but they all backed down when I DoWed
My army is vastly larger than anyone else - 327 regiments. Britain however has larger navy and navy-oriented ideas so I need to find a better time to attack them. Maybe ally with France? I did that once but they got their asses handed so hard by England (France had 29 WE when the war ended) that I decided to switch to the victorious Britons later on. My main problem is the arab minors constantly DoWing me but I don't want to conquer them since I want to stick to historical borders. Every time a war drags on some pesky Mamluks attack me, causing me to distract some 30,000 troops to beat them. I always win of course but the WE is not welcome.
Gonna be tough, tough indeed.
EDIT: Managed to get some small gap where GB wasn't allied to anyone and was stuck in war with Burgundy. They asked me to fight another foe, I refused and DoWed them, and quickly destroyed the whole nation. Every last one of their ships sunk - that's almost 200 boats. Took all their Medit. holdings except Southwestern Spain where I took only Gibraltar.

Instead of annexing the minors that attack you, you could force-vassalise them, if that works in D&T (I don't know, I play vanilla DW).
