    ...the entire world?

    I do believe this contradicts every single one of our guesses up until now

    Hasn't it always been?
    At least this confirms it's not focused on one specific place.

    Oh THAT rules out a lot. ;-)

    Still some "Louis XIV of France" thingy (Sun, Swords as in Musketeers and No Sweden) possible.

    No Sweden, but conquering the world is the goal?
    Everything which seemed sorta sure falls apart.

    But wait, how can you conquer the whole world when there's no Sweden?
    Maybe all of Europe is turned into a single OP country, called European Union?

    That would be reasonable for a Modern Day Scenario/Near Future Scenario, but the 'there will be swords' hint conflicts with that.

    I think this threw us all off. Either this is a trick hint, like in "You must conquer the whole world, and everyone knows China/the Mediterranean is the whole world (at least the only part that matters)!" or this is actually a fantasy game after all.

    Starting to look worryingly like a fantasy game...

    Swords are symbolic for military and defence force. Like on coat of arms.

    It seems they finally admitted Sweden isn't a part of the civilized world

    Jokes aside, I guess this means it's a fantasy game afterall...and it seems someone else bought the A Song Of Ice And Fire licence already. Curses!

    We didnt have Sweden in Rome either, and the goal was to conquer the world there too

    Could be Alexander the Great.
    There are swords, Macedonia is quite a hot place, there would be no Sweden in such a game and Alexander surely aimed at conquering the world.

    I'm not sure how this would sell though.

    Unfortunately, this hint would also invalidate a game in the Song of Ice and Fire universe. We only know very small parts of that world: Westeros is just a small continent and only a few locations from the rest of the world are mentioned. So no ASOIAF World Conquest unless GRRM would let Paradox take A LOT of liberties with his world

    So you mean conquering the known world is the goal?

    WC? Awww man What about us RP freaks?
