Wow... I felt the exact same way about Galeazzo I and Giovanni but I didn't want to upset you. Although, with a second reading helping, I found Galeazzo the first had hidden depths as he revealed himself to be an untrustworthy sort who was full of himself which was a nice change of pace from his father Francesco, the gruff soldier getting used to regalship. I unfortunately can't say the same about Giovanni, he really didn't have much personality to his name.
No worries, the readers can be critical whether its praise or condemnation I have pretty thick skin so it won't upset me if you or anyone else has criticisms or are concerned about a character that has a weak personality or something. Besides I write for the readers so its hard to correct a mistake or make it more interesting to you guys if no one voices their opinions so I encourage any and all feedback!
But with that in mind, those first parts of this AAR I was trying to find my footing and decide how I wanted to tell this story so a lot of it was just toying around until I found some direction.
I'm also very excited very excited that he's going to be the stereotypical "torturing animals and killing whores just for fun" type of guy, a lot of writers don't seem to realize that psychopathy is a condition, not a natural temperament, and that it's not a condition if the victim should suffer from. I want to see how Galeazzo react to the weight of his own disorders as he matures, and how others perceive him. I think you can do something really interesting with him.
We will definitely be having fun with Galeazzo and his arc. Especially when it comes to his dislike for his older brother Matteo Lots of fun stuff coming about that. Although I will say I don't know if he'll be "torturing animals and killing whores" just for the fun of it. However, he may very well "torture men and kill man-whores" just for fun......
I'm not too fussed that the pope doesn't give many bonuses after being vassalised by a fellow catholic, it would give an unfair advantage for Italy players in multiplayer to start with.
I'm intrigued as to how the recent events will affect Milan's diplomatic standing, or more bluntly, will everybody start to hate the Sforza's guts because he attacked the pope or will they start to hate them for working together with the pope to form a united Italia.
You are right if it had any bonuses it'd be way too overpowered, just wishful thinking And well we will soon see some of the after-effects of the Papal vassilization.
And give the Protestants more reason to hate you and rise in rebellion!
This is true! Although oddly enough since Emperor Jiri's assassination we haven't had any issues with Protestant rebellions anymore. In fact I think at the moment we're in the process of converting Treviso. Think I left that out of the update for some reason...oops lol So I don't know maybe Jiri was inciting the rebels...because its been rather peaceful since Premysl Otakar took the Bohemian throne.
