    Having a decent computer really helps. I go for years without doing anything, but the years take almost no time to go by on full speed.

    Chapter 4

    It's that time of the week again! Yes, the time I can actually be bothered to do something

    Lets get going, shall we?

    10 years go by without much happening, shortly after the turn of the century I make a slider change to free subjects.



    I diploannex Maya as per my mission and gaina core on Guatemala.



    My next mission is a vassalise one. So I declare war on the helpless little tribes.



    Suprisingly, I win the war! I vassalise them and take all their gold.



    I get the awesome event giving me a core on my vassal, releasing him, breaking our alliance and lowering our relations.



    I annex them



    After failing the mission of intergrating my vassal (diplomatically) my new mission is to.... get a new vassal



    During the war I spy with my little eye something beginning with 'A French boa'
    If you guess correctly you win 1 internet cookie.



    Anticipating the Europeans arrival I move quickly to annex all the tribes. I completely annex the big brown one, taking the infamy. I then vassalise the other little one.



    After that I vassalise the land locked little tribe.



    What's this? Oh noes! Diseases!?!? Oh my Sun! What have we done to deserve this terrible thingy?



    The disease lowers my stability, , manpower and raises revolt risk and stability cost.

    It's not over yet, now every single province gets a modifier "serious diseases" over time. This wipes out half the population in all my provinces and lowers growth rate, tax, manpower and raises revolt risk. These modifiers then turn into notable diseases, the same but less serious.



    I intergrate Kan'ek.



    I allied Inca, but to no advantage. I cannot get to them No picture (sorrry)

    End picture.



    Until next time, goodbye!

    Good to have Mesoamerica more or less unified now that the Europeans are starting to show up.

    Very nice, New World country AARs are always interesting. Personally, I do not have the skill to succeed with them, so I enjoy reading AARs on them all the more!

    Diseases...I know I shouldn't think this, but save the blankets and give them as gifts to the visiting Explorers. And, isn't that how it always goes. You're riding high and then bam...you're knocked way back.

    Too bad the diseases didn't occur until after the Europeans arrived. Just think of the storyline you could of had. You could have blamed them.

    You're doing a great job. Keep it up.

    I'm pretty sure it was their fault. I have never had diseases before and suddenly, after seeing a french boat diseases came. I guess it didn't happen straight afterwards as more contact would have occurred by then.

    As the person who created the disease events, I can assure you that when you meet the disease, the Europeans aren't far behind.

    Great AAR by the way. I'm interested to see how your encounters with the Europeans go.

    Thanks! I hope I will survive the Europeans but we will see

    I like the disease modifiers. But to answer your question, I just really don't like the new texture for the map. The current version of D&T I find much more pleasing.

    Update is imminent.

    Chapter 5

    Not much happened for a long time and @lukew I lied in my last post, the rebels are quite annoying especially in my colonies.



    Hip hip hooray! Hip hip hooray! The diseases are in retreat we will win this war yet!



    OH noooo! The British are coming! Not much to say about this really...



    I get the event of gaining relations with my vassal and stab or CB and non vassalisation. I go for the stab as the disease brought a lot of anarchy.



    It has gone! One of our provinces is free from this horrible disaster!



    This time I decide to take the CB as the eternal war with England prevents me from diploannexing my vassal.

    Guess who wins...?



    The Brits want peace! Ha! They fear and marvel at our superior technology and armies!

    Oh come on!



    Ok, sorry it was a short one. It was like 20 years in game but a bit uneventful!

    Good thing that nothing major came out of that English war so you could get the diseases out of the way.

    Also, fully unified! Wohoo!

    Yes. I only ever saw 2 English boats who were blockading my ports, but the WE wasn't too desired.

    Chapter 6

    Welcome back to the super awesome, action packed adventure that is BLOOD BROTHERS!

    Lets start off in the deep end! Look! The French!



    Oh no! What threat will they pose? We all saw what happened with the British, didn't we?

    Oh crap, they seized my colony



    Their 10K destroys my 45K



    Another devastating battle.



    They accept peace after besieging some of my provinces, its ok I got my colony back



    Oh, that wasn't as exciting as you thought it would be, was it? I know it was short but it was actually the longest session I played, its just very uneventful.
