Sorry for the reboot, but I figured that considering the massive map changes, that it would be best to begin again, rather than try and catch up to where I was - as the huge number of provinces makes a big difference.
Anyway, Will have a Prologue update up again ASAP, and then get further than last time
Hesus... this looks different
Anyway, I've played the Byzantines once all the way though, making the terrible mistake of hitting 100+ infamy at the end, in order to build a slightly greater than historical Roman Empire in HTTT.
However, I recently started playing DW, and got the Death and Taxes mod, an interesting mod that takes national ideas and sliders up a notch, as well as adding some interesting cultural stuff. As well as the OMG different map, which I think is the DAO? Correct me if I am wrong, map.
House Rules :
1) I will NOT break the infamy limit, unless my legitimacy drops my limit down.
2) I will NOT attempt to be come the Holy Roman Emperor - if my some random chance I do, then I will not form the HRE.
My Goals (OOC)
1) Restore the Roman Empire
2) Conquer the lands of the Western Empire
3) Dissolve the HRE
4) Spread Greek Culture around the Med
5) Dominate Persia, India and the Silk Road
I believe I'll achieve number 1. before 1500, unless something drastic happens, and hopefully number 2 by 1550, 3 is a hopeful idea, more for the story than personal ambition, and 4 - Will be DAMN hard, and dependent (in the case of the med) on 1 and 2, and how many colonists I can get - if anyone knows how to increase colonist amount besides NIs, COTs, nomads and Modding.. please, pray tell! 5 - Alexander can't have all the fun :P
I intend to have this as a largely narrative/history AAR, mixture of lectures, history textbooks and other sources, with a spattering of gameplay throughout. I'll let update size be dictated by events and try to do a summary of each ruler, and a state of the empire as appropriate.
Sorry again to those who saw the first version, but I figured this was a better idea than sticking with the old one.
