On another matter, it seems to me that these dev diaries keep getting shorter and shorter. It used to be that we'd get quite a lot of text, and even if most of it was filler it made the whole thing seem more familiar somehow. Anyone agree with me?
Nice the system is complete. I would've missed the message log.
Looking forward to crusaders (and possibly pandas).
Too bad this DD didn't have anything new (atleast that wasn't revealed in the latest videon which is very good btw). I really really hope next DD is about Crusades or Mongols.
Pandaria FTW! I might finally pick up WoW.
This all looks good, looking forward to CK2.

How did some slip of a girlyboy from communist East Berlin become the internationally ignored song stylist barely standing before you?

Oh thank God, I was already afraid you guys were going to do it the WoW way and leave the Pandas to be handled by one of the expansions! This way we get to play as the much-wanted Pandas from the very 1.0 version.
I'm a bit confused. Will there only be some messages that we can get as pop ups, or can I make all of them pop-ups?
I have to say I'm glad and reassured that the two type of messages will be in. That way, I could use the "sengoku message box" to watch closely those I think are important and still have the impression that other things are going on. In fact, the problem with this message box is that you never know what is truly important. So you cannot see all the events related to something, and you may have to go back some days later. I remember when I do an AAR (I just have few, but still), I sometimes take a screenshot of the big message box only to remember that some event happened some days before.
Also, I support a randomize option for children's names.

The Eternal State - a DH-KR Ottoman AAR - Dropped due to health reasons
Struggle for the Mediterranean - a BOR Punic War MP AAR - Dropped due to AGEOD leaving Paradox
One of these days I will actually finish an AAR
"Holy Roman Empire. Neither Holy, nor Roman, nor an Empire. But it doesn't have any oil so no reason for military intervention" -Voltaire.
Regarding the naming option, I would also have loved the option to have the complete cultural name list to choose from.
Furthermore a Capetian king Roger could happen; if he's a younger son (not a likely name for the first born though), his mother was a De Hauteville and he somehow became heir.
Yay message log! YAY MESSAGE LOG!

“When we received Ribbentrop, of course he toasted Stalin and me—on the whole he was my best friend. (Molotov’s eyes twinkled) Stalin unexpectedly suggested, ‘Let’s drink to the new Anti-Cominternist—Stalin!’ He said this mocking and winked at me. He had made a joke to see Ribbentrop’s reaction. Ribbentrop rushed to phone Berlin and reported ecstatically to Hitler. Hitler replied, ‘My genius minister of foreign affairs!’ Hitler never understood Marxists.”
(Vyacheslav Molotov, quoted in Molotov Remembers, p. 12.)

Is it possible to follow characters / mark them as interesting like in Sengoku or V2-AHD?
If you want to always be right,
you need to always be prepared to change your mind.
