A map of Europe and a map of our possessions (the dark blue-colored provinces in the second map are my vassals).
Hello and welcome to my second ever After Action Report (yes, second, I have an old abandoned Vicky AAR skeleton in my virtual closet o ). I will be playing France using the default settings with no mods installed. Plain old (ehr, new) In Nomine. My goals are to have fun and maybe, just maybe, dominate the world. Hope you enjoy

Chapter I - An overview
Our tale begins in the year of 1399. The Hundred Years' War, started in 1337 by two royal houses for control of the French throne. The HYW has seen a relatively quiet period since 1389 when a truce was signed. Only a few weeks ago, Richard II of England was succeeded by his cousin Henry IV following trouble in Ireland near the border with Scotland.
In France, Charles VI 'the Mad' rules the country, albeit with great difficulty. At one time, he could not remember he was the King or who his wife was, and fled in horror from the castle. On the whole though, he is a capable administrator and diplomat. Despite panic attacks due to his mental illness, he is a capable military leader. The Court consists of Jean Charlier de Gerson, a Theologian, and Pierre d'Ailly, a Natural Scientist.
Our balanced economy. Our monthly income is the 2nd highest in the world.
Our only military unit, Armée Royale, the Royal Army.
Our only General, Jean II Le Meingre. Not bad, but not excellent.
The capital, Île-de-France, and its Center of Trade. We have four merchants in this CoT, and one in Antwerpen.
