Like the update! A lot of tension, and with my favorite Prussian group, no less.
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.
No one is perfect. But I am glad that people do enjoy it, even if they are too shy to post.Why wouldn't you know your audience well? You probably have one of the best AARs in the forums and a lot of people get excited with that (not me though ... *suspicious eyeshifting*)
Yes, the Norse expeditions which saw a relatively extensive settling of Newfoundland and Labrador (including permanent walled cities) and of course brought their diseases with them almost 200 years earlier. However, these colonies proved too dangerous and costly, so they were abandoned. The remaining Norse mingled with the surrounding natives. The Norse discovered the region around 1000 in real life, and in the Baltikja timeline begin exploration around 1200 and settling was mostly an affair of the early 1300s before they gave up.I have a question I'm not sure has been answered yet Capiatlist. How is it that there are so many Natives in the New World? Was there some failed expedition that gave them time to recover from the diseases? It's just something I've been curious of for a while.
Thank you very much and glad to be the host of your first post.I love this AAR. One of the best.
There was a small red-headed child with her when we first meet her, implied to be the son of an Irish raider who raped her and then tried to kill her. I am more surprised no one else called me out on his disappearance.Wait. . .when did Sarah (Lady Grey?) have a son?
Also, it seems a new Sich will be crowned and a new Pretender killed?
I really love those azowians ...
Medieval cowboys? Hmmm...I agree, the Azowians are my favorite group. Medieval cowboys! And Everyone loves a little bit of rebellion.

Some big wars, a climatic battle, lots of filler (no change there).Also, I'm curious to see what you keep for the XV'th century
Cowboys are very different both in RL and in the Baltikja timeline. Might have to focus on them a bit in later books.Now that you mention it, I do remember the child. I guess you made him so shy he disappeared in my mind! Great update though.
And can you blame me? would be cool if like, in this timeline the whole cowboy phenomenon came from the Azowians. Would make a lot of sense!
It wouldn't be the High Middle Ages if everyone was happy.Cowboys on the steppes...
Unfortunate that the Prussians are finding things so restless, still they seem well equipped to deal with it.
Thank you as always!Great update, as usual !
Cowboys in real life are rather dull, I mean they were farmhands they didn't really do anything cool. It is interesting to note that the majority of "cowboys" were minorities (because it was a grueling task and considered beneath most land-owners), were underpaid, and honestly were little different than the coal miners of the East. The cowboys we all think of a purely a creation of Hollywood.How are they different in RL? Though I am now very curious to see how they turn out in this AAR
