End of Part One
To be Continued ...
To be Continued ...
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.
How unfortunate. Did you intend for this to happen, or was this by random chance?
I'm betting upon pure masochism and wanting to make Eu4 more challenging.
You sure do have a knack for destroying your player country/family in your AARs, don't you? Another shocking ending on your part!
I guess the MacGirics deserved to be kings, considering they've been trying to capture the Scottish crown for centuries now.
A bit unrelated (alternate linguistic development fascinates me), but I bet the English language in this timeline would still be similar to our own language, just with Spanish/Asturian influence instead of the French/Norman influence. It would produce quite an interesting parallel language. Did the Christians win the Reconquista in this game, by any chance?
Very R.R Martinesque
....well that was unexpected.
Onward and upward!
How will you avoid becoming part of France in EUIV?
Nothing left but the original holding of Fife? That's wonderfully poetic, that is.
Serves them right for their avaricious Cymry-oppressing, Empire-grabbing, border-forsaking antics, I say!
A shame to see the MacDrostans go, though I'm sure that the MacGirics will prove just as interesting. I do like dynastic changeovers, though. They often make for very interesting periods of history – certainly in terms of keeping a country from simply dominating all of Europe (which the MacD's looked set on doing at some stage, if they hadn't already.)
Looking forward to the travails to come in EUIV!
Also, in repsonse to volksmarschall's earlier reply to my thoughts, I don't find it at all odd that you find all reads doth while. I'm certainly not one to discriminate texts based on how accepted they are, or whether they adhere to my existing biases (though this may well be down more to my lack of formal schooling in what actually is widely accepted and so forth.) If anything only reading that which, if you don't necessarily agree with, you find valid, is in my eyes nothing short of a one-way ticket to stubborn narrowmindedness!
That is what I call an abrupt end.
An unexpected turn of things to say the least! Well I hope that the new, MacGiric dynasty will be more long-lived on the throne of Scotland (even i the MacDrostans where longlived too). Could you also post a short dynastic information about the MacGiric dynasty as a whole before going on to EU4?
Superb ending to the dynasty Tommy4ever. Really loved this 1st part and very much looking forward to the next. Well done that man!
Congratulations Tommy for finishing this! You make me disappointed in my inability to ever make it into the eleventh century unless I already start from there!
Head of House MacGiric: 1393-2425
Question for you though Tommy? One of the reasons I prefer CK to EU is the relentless focus on people rather more than politics or events. How are you going to maintain that as the game moves into EUIV?
The MacDrostans lasted 500 years! It will be tough to beat that . Hop the little paragraph in the above update will suffice for MacG background, I can always go into more detail later if you would prefer though .
Thankyou for all the kind words! Part Two is beginning ...
