Awesome. Are you going to use the Victoria to HoI2 converter?
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise.

In one fell swoop Kerensky had plicated the right of his country and forced the Soviet’s to accept a new social-liberal government. The Mensheviks and the majority of the Bolsheviks formed the main opposition party (The Soviet Party) which was strong until Leon Trotsky resigned when offered the post of Commander in Chief of all of Russia by Prime Minister Kerensky.Prince Lvov said:“Brothers of Mother Russia! We stand here on the cross roads in our history. We need social change to create greater equality and justice for all, however, the nation needs a unifying force! We need to show ourselves and the world that Russia is a country where the people are united! The government will be re-ordered therefore into a new parliament into which we invite the Petrograd and Moscow Soviet’s and at it’s head will be Czarina Anastasia, bound by a new constitution!”
Derek Pullem said:If India gets its own MPs then presumably Canada and the ANZACs will too. An Imperial parliament will be interesting - as will the "Irish" question.
Presumably Ireland will still be part of the Empire if it is a more liberal entity with no WW1 to foster the Easter Rising etc?
Mind you - if there is an Irish Independence movement which does gain its own state I wonder what the other colonies will do with the same status in Parliament.
With the rousing speech still ringing in his ears the members of the parliament went and voted 503 to 65 with 25 MP’s abstaining. So the contingency plans drawn up by Field Marshall Lord Kitchener were put into action. The BEF (British Expeditionary Force) had been founded by the British war minister, Richard Haldane after the Boer War and by 1918 had swelled to some 170,000 men. The First Army commanded by Sir John French with some 60,000 men was detached to Belgium to try and stop the French and would latter be joined by their German and Austrian allies. The second army of roughly the same and commanded by Sir Douglas Haig was to be landed on the lightly defended Normandy coast so reversing the process of some 800 years earlier. The remaining 50,000 were sent to Egypt where they were to acclimatise and then land upon the coast of Palestine in co-ordination with Austrian troops already massed to land in Syria. There would also be 150,000 Indian troops landing in Mesopotamia after the Indian parliament put its weight behind The Empires effort.Lloyd George said:It is with a heavy heart and after much thought that I today come before this parliament and ask for a declaration of war against the perfidious French. Their conduct of this war has been dishonourable and a shames all peoples who would call themselves civilised. The time has come gentlemen we shall now strike down the evil foe and The Empire shall quickly bring them to account, I ask you when you vote to remember this parliament’s motto libertas, commercium et humanus!
The campaign in France was quite straight forward after both the Italians and Spanish declared war upon the crippled nation. The most notable thing was the rapid assault on French forces in Belgium and the first use of a new invention of The Empire the Tank. These startling machines quickly broke through the French hastily constructed lines and headed to encircle the positions at Verdun. With Belgium, Empire, German and Austrian forces attacking from the east and Normandy and Spanish and Italian incursions to the south the result was a forgone conclusion and on the 14th July 1918 on Bastille Day the Commander-in-Chief of the French forces Joseph Joffre signed the document of French surrender.Theres quelque chose mal avec nos bateaux aujourd'hui
