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. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
California is like South Africa: until the 90s whites were a tiny minority but completely in control of everything. Now they are just a tiny minority.So Texas is a liberal, multi-ethic state that helps oppressed people and California is a conservative, nationalistic state, that discriminates against the native. This world is screwed up. :laugh: Also, How many aboriginals are in California?

But yeah, it is sort of supposed to be ironic in a way.
Because California wasn't really colonized all that well. Prussia had just sort of blanket claimed the whole western USA and then built forts to enforce it. Then Mexico and Texas declared their independence and suddenly California is isolated and also declares its independence. But no more Prussians ever really come in large numbers. The Gold Rush is kept under wraps (mostly, sort of hard to hide that) because the land is all owned by wealthy city-dwellers who fill the mines with slaves.Why the lack of Prussians than. I bet a lot of Prussians would prefer the beach's of California to the cold Baltic coast. And there is the gold in Calforinia to think about.
Good to see you again, glad to hear it kept you coming back during your silent period.Good to see more of Aelle!
Funny how it is that when I throw random comments 3 years ago they bear fruits like this.
I should really try to regain my old posting tempo, alas I'm too lazy and have other stuff to do.
Keep the AAR coming!
Even if I haven't commented in ages, I still follow this masterpiece.
Your faithful fan
Thank you.Another great modern update !
I can't either, should be a lot of fun.Argh, I can't wait to get to the parts when the New World is colonized, that will be fun!
Yeah, I liked the little twist of Irony.Haha, I must agree with flyguy117. I just find the situation really funny.
And Kanem . . . how long HAS it been occupied? Wasn't there an update awhile ago that said 2006 or 07?
Welcome. It was a preposterous idea that got the ball rolling, but I think that is why it has done so well.umm...wow. To say that the depth and and scope of this AAR(s) is ambitious would be an understatement...honestly it's totally intimidating trying to insert myself into it at this late point in time. Who am I kidding? reading from the beginning and catching up would be difficult...BUT I just have to voice my admiration here. It's not just an original idea and an amusingly preposterous premise (Saxons in Prussia!), but man...the scale of it. I'm humbled. Awesome work.
edit: after thinking about my comments some, I need your advice Mr. Capiatlist. How do you recommend that a late-comer enjoy your stuff?..or at least catch up in a way that allows someone to become a meaningful commenter? I flipped through maybe 20 pages or so to try and get a sense of your approach and your style. Ultimately I believe the ONLY way to do this properly is to plop down and read from the beginning...but honestly that's not a realistic prospect for me. Efforts like this deserve recognition, but it's not always feasible to be in on the ground floor. Any thoughts?
c - Don't bother catching up at all and just enjoy what is coming. Luckily for you this chapter is a good place to do that: I have introduced a temporary arc which will end soon and then there will be a juicy reset in the main story at the end. For the sake of perspective, we are about 20% done with Bastions, and Bastions is just book 2 of 4, so you are definitely still in the "beginning".
As the author I would never say that you should never read the older one, but if you want to catch up quick then I provided some prologues.I read the both Homelands and Bastions awhile ago, and I must say I think it was worth it.
Only 20% done? Wow, I thought it was farther then that.
