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.
This revolt will not be allowed to pass. Taking up the crown of this pretender state will be near equal to a death sentence. Russia will ride to the rescue of their ally if needed and we will not permit such to happen elsewhere. Our empire will not allow chaos to reign supreme in europe. Any people considering an uprising would be wise to consider what will be riding against them shortly. We will put to fire those that allow themselves to be used as agents of the vile French tyrant. France will further their use of pawns to defeat their foes but as with Spain, their allies will see no victory. We seek to maintain order in europe, the tyrant seeks to throw the world into chaos.

How surprising. The French are now extending their hand, whose hunger does not end, into the territory of their former allies. Now the people of Spain must suffer under the hands of Napoleon's men. Such is the price of imperialism.

The king of Portugal is baffled by the reaction of France. Nowhere in our response did I say I was happy because of the Spanish civilians. The joy I mentioned was that the leaders of the Spaniards were disposed. At least, that was what I meant, if it was mistaken for joy at the suffering of civilians, then I apologize. Furthermore, I attempting to unite the Iberian peninsula, I am trying to PREVENT the suffering of civilians. If the emperor of France is unhappy with the measures being taken to prevent this suffering, then I am surprised, for you have the reputation of a humanitarian. I would also like to point out, that these people have declared independence from Spain, and therefore not your ally.
