I will have no qualms about annexing savoy even if a player is playing them. I'm not going to give up free cores on rich land that easily.
I'll have to talk to Tazen and maybe Austria... But I suspect I'll have to continue to hunt about for a nation to play. I was actually considering taking Venice, as well, but I won't if this guy takes it.
I know I am late on this but on the issue of too many players making it unstable I dont think it will be much of an issue. If you remember we had those players as milan an naples who simply stepped down after they were lagging to much.
If he goes venice as I am Milan - if I get the chance to annex him I will :P.
Usually MP venice v milan ends up something like this, which (at least IMO) is pretty reasonable for both players.

In addition, I only killed Milan in NA because it turned out there was a real life friendship permaalliance going on which needed to be ended forcefully. Simply speaking in "Might makes Right" terms, you could make the same argument for attacking Austria or France.
Ok, I didn't think you were just going to go by people's first picks. That's fine. In that case I'll play Mamluks. I would play GH but poor Muscowy and Novgorod would die pretty quickly :/. Oh the succession crisis is pretty annoying too.
What's Castille's stance on Portugal btw? Would knee-hi be interested in a long term Castille + Port Alliance?
Take venice man, I don't really want to play it. Too much work to become stronger than Human frances/austrias :P
(providing they aren't just better than me)
Milan: They're land, you're naval and on an island. They can't do much so they'd be unwise to try.
Austria: Same as Milan, plus they have no conflict with you.
Hansa: Well, you've got to have at least some enemies!
