    First thing you should do is not play Venice. Its overplayed but hey, this could be good. My suggestion? Conquer every island in the Mediterranean sea, including Gibralter so you can control the entrance to the ocean. And sicily. Along with uniting Italy, you should be set to go. But remember to change the flag and color of Italy if you can, the original flag and colors are puke ugly.

    Chapter I - Uniting North Italy

    It's year 1399.Venice is a small republic in Northeast Italy.It has enemies on all sides:Austria in the north,Milan in the west and Aquaellia in the east;all of these must fall for a Venetian North Italy.

    War with Aquaellia

    The first mission I get is Conquering Friulli,wich is the Aquellian Capital.The war seemed easy,but the problem was that Aquellia is part of the Holy Roman Empire,with the Emperor beign from Hungary,so i got to make them declare war on me. Montenegro!
    So I declare war with the Reconquest Casus Beli,and the plan works.War with Aquaellia,no Hungary.
    The small balkan army managed to ocupy Zeta. After i anexed Montenegro,i tranported half of the army to Italy.

    The war in Italy was initialy going very slow,but after the fall of Friulli and the expansion of my armies,it has got progresing very smooth.After a short time I anexed their teritories
    But the war had made it's Venetian victims.The unrest in Crete forced me to release it as a vassal .

    Wow, tremendous start so far! One thing you might not know -- the Emperor will never intervene if you have a legitimate CB. (At least, Reconquest and Subjugation, in my experience).

    I believe that only applies between 2 member states. Venice does not start out as a member of the Empire. However, joining might have solved that problem.

    Nice start, but that infamy is going to slow expansion!

    Not if you're outside of the HRE, as Venice is.

    Wow, nice luck there with snatching up Aquellia really early. Got their gold provinces and now its a clear shot for North Italy with Milan right?

    I would wait on Milan for a while. If you wait a while, you will get a mission that will give you a CB on them. Try to gain admittance to the empire during that time. Also, Try to build up your strength to battle the Hungarians at some point. If you can seize Croatia and Dalmatia from them, you will only need to seize Ragusa to link up your Balkan and Italian holdings.

    Gibraltar isn't an island, it's almost an island.

    Can you actually use Gibraltar for its real-life purpose in EU3?

    Sort of.If you put there a large navy,you will prevent your Non-Western European enemies to enter the Mediteranean or for the Mediteranean countries to enter the Ocean.

    "Interbellum".Conquest of Sardinia and consolidation of the Balkans.

    Milan.Milan.The violet blob in Italy;their armies are bigger,they are alied with Naples,so they are more powerfull at the moment.But a two front war may resolve the problem.Let's see,I can't conquer anything in the north,the south is controled by the Pope,so it's not an option.West.The little island of Sardinia is a perfect choice.Also they are alied with Achea,wich is one of my targest.Sooo..DOW
    After a rather short siege (for an 3k army)Sardinia falls under Venetian rule.[IMG][/IMG]
    Antonie Vertigo.He was a good leader,but now it's time for elections.Hmm.Military Candidate[IMG][/IMG]
    Now.Greece.I get Military acces from Ragusa,so my main army marched into the Balkans.After a verry short time,Achea surenders,and now half of Greece is Venetian
    Also,I inherited Corfu :].

    At this rate , you will soon face a coalition of various powers
    and Aquilea cannot be released , except for their capital , as they lose their cores upon annexation
    no more unfinished IN AAR's

    I don't know about this version of the game, but in previous version, neither Milan nor Naples would annex Rome, so if you want it, you have to fight the pope and annex yourself.

    I can confirm this; in every single game of EU 3 I've ever played (Complete, HttT, and DW), nobody other than me has ever taken Rome. Perhaps it's hard coded?

    Attempted Pax Venetiana.War with Milan.Balkan Hegemony

    The world hates Venice.I can get DOW from France at any moment,so I'd say it's time for a 20-30 years peace.All went well:Techonology progresed,armies recovered and revolt risk went down..untilYeah,well..Genoa it's a 2 province minor.same with Swiss.The true problems are Milan and Naples.Naples it's a bit to far to really hurt me,at best they will take Sardinia and some Greek provinces.Soo,All armies to Italy!At first I had only a small force in Italy,so Swis and Genoese troops where preety much destroying me,but after my armies united into a 24k one i preety much steamrolled trough Milan.I took Verona and became richer with 13 ducats.Well,I tought this was the begining of Pax Venetiana..untill Hungary DOWed me .A quick rush with the main army gained me 3 provinces(Dalmatia,Croatia and Ragusa)Peace treaty,I annex these 3 provinces.So the Pax Venetiana thingy was a complete failure,beacause now my infamy is 33.

    Well you could relax a bit now that you've conquered so much, it's always a good idea to consolidate once conquests once in awhile
