Is it tomorrow or late?
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.
Carlstadt Boy. I had maybe a dozen comments, I doubt you remember me. I forgot them until I started rereading the thread recently (I've just reached new updates). Great AAR, keeping the old beacons lit (together with Butterfly Effect).By Jove, what was your name back then?
Indeed I do remember! Glad to have you back! I can only hope you'll still find the story's newest installments read-worthy. The more I try to make them shorter, the more I end up with 12-pagers.Carlstadt Boy. I had maybe a dozen comments, I doubt you remember me.

Well that all sounds excellent. I wonder which French submarines we will be meeting? Most of the French sub fleet was designed for the Med (which is hopefully secure enough that nothing interesting is happening) or 'colonial service' which you'd hope is also quiet.Well, the next chapter should be a 14-pager more or less. I have two bits left to write, about some Norway-based intrigue. I promise you French submarines, German merchantsmen, British cruisers, and a much drearier version of King Haakon as the one @El Pip made us know and love some years ago. Oh, and also Ian Fleming, because as much as I can't stand his books I find the man quite fascinating.
You shall indeed see a Saphir-class submarine (Rubis, to be precise). Though she will not be responsible for any Haakon-dragging, as that honour belongs to some other warships.Well that all sounds excellent. I wonder which French submarines we will be meeting?

As the Surcouf is a bit too predictable to feature, are we going to see some Redoubtables messing around in the North Sea? Or will the Saphirs be laying mines around Norwegian waters and causing the duller/sensible King Haakon to be dragged into intrigue? I look forward to finding out.
At first I wanted to have them play Zulu Warriors in the 19th-century and battle both Redcoats and Out-of-this-world horrors, but half of my players wanted to have a shot at Nazis in a more Indiana Jones-like setting. And I concur with Count Zaroff that brownshirt-clad humans are the most dangerous/interesting game.What kind of scenario does it exactly involve for that game? I'm piqued.
It definitely is "a work in progress"!What's the progress report on the post?
Reverence. Definitely reverence. It's the only appropriate response.At long last, free to write again (and not write-sick from churning up court requests and statistical reports), and thus this week's objective is to finish that damn Chapter 125, with naval and submarine adventure, as well as palatial intrigue as promised. There might be some kind of reference (or is it reverence?) to, @El Pip as well, as History is no stranger to funny coincidences.
