Fumbling My Way through History
- Oct 18, 2009
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.
It is written as October in English, but as Oktober in Dutch. Good catch!Less micro with CN's, no way! If you conquer any native they are not going to be able to control the land and you are forced to leave a 20 regiment in the new world. Great to see that the French Empire now stretches over 6 continents!
Just a minor note too: You seem to always write "oktober", isn't it spelled "october" in English (for me it is fine though as I'm half-swedish )?
Marathon read, huh? Awesome! Welcome to FranceWow I just read through this whole AAR today and I have to say it is great, I'm definitely looking out for every entry. Just wondering, have you upped the tariffs in your colonies at all, they can produce quite a bit of juicy extra income actually, also I suggest taking trade as one of your last idea groups, those extra merchants could really link up a huge trade route from your colonies to your home node bringing in loads of income.
Anyway keep it up.
In all honesty, I don't know what the exact effects of La Revolution would be in game terms, so it might actually be beneficial in some way.Freedom to the serfs! The Revolution calls all to great freedom now, instead of a Habsburg Princess getting her head whacked off, a Habsburg King of France can now! (Not that I would want to see that happen to you in the game, although, it would certainly add a certain historicity to the game and AAR instead of just a monarchical rule!
Looks like the Ottomans have been enjoying the rise of France on the other side of Europe!
Thank you.The trouble with colonial nations... is that they're filled with colonists!
Great read, btw.
Yeah, I read another thread in EU 4 forum where many people were saying that. I must be having this 1 exception to the rule, then, because up to this point, neither Spain, nor Portugal, or myself, have been able to upset them. Now, though, with 62 threedeckers, I am hoping to change that.Why can't you match the British fleet? I find it is fairly easy even as France to build a number of heavy warships to easily crush their forces.
That would be something. Which makes me wonder: is there a Napoleon-event? If so, do I need Corsica to get him?La France règne sur les mers! Funny to se that very little Crete tesxt behind the huge Ottoman letters. The French Revolution would definetly be favorable , atleast if you can turn into a Revolutionary Empire.
Not sure, but I think that you should conquer it to be on the safe side. Historically it was bought by the king Louis XV in 1769 out of the republic of Genoa.That would be something. Which makes me wonder: is there a Napoleon-event? If so, do I need Corsica to get him?
ok, so I still have time. I can't believe I forgot Corsica. Even without L'Empereur, it's part of today's France, so it should have been taken long time ago.Not sure, but I think that you should conquer it to be on the safe side.

The same with Savoy, but it was IRL aquired through a referendum in 1860 after Napoleon III's war against Austria during the formation of Italy.ok, so I still have time.

Well, that's Vicky 2, then. So I am off the hook on that one :laugh:The same with Savoy, but it was IRL aquired through a referendum in 1860 after Napoleons war against Austria during the formation of Italy.
