zomgzorz finally a Novgorodian (does that even exists?) AAR. The Novgorodian winter will sure prove useful in the up-coming battles/wars. :D

Good grief! What a cilffhanger! :D :D :D

50.000 Muscovites besieging Novgorod, and with reinforcements soon standing ready in Moskva.... Will Poland come to aid? Buy Novgorod out of the war? Or will territory be lost?

Next update! :D

Cliffhanger...Bit of an anti climax Im afraid...

Mmm...Novgorod...way to get through the first years unscathed!

I remember my only successful game as a Novgorod/Russia. I too allied with Poland/Lithuania and used that alliance to trash on Sweden and the German religious orders. Once that was done, Muscowy was no problem.

Looks like your acquisitions in old Lithuania have put you out of the danger zone and into the 'kick-ass' expansion mode! Good luck forming Russia! Will you keep it an aristocratic/serfdom culture? Or will some of Novgorod's trading Republic style culture persist?

when it is time to annex the Muscovites, gently place your arm around their leader's shoulders and (while looking South) ask him, "Is it better for you to join me, or, for you and your people to learn a new language, and religion?" :D

magnificent start ! ! :cool:

I figured we had to have a good start eventually :) and yes, those provs off lith take us well and truly out of the danger zone.

Aristocratic/Serfdom will be the order of the day...absolutely no trading will be done.

And thanks ;)

Well played! It all belongs to Novgorod! Unite all the Russians!

BTW, what's your BB like? And when you colonize, do the colonies become Ugric or Russian (I cannot recall now :eek:o ).

EDIT: Oh, I see that it's Russian. Well, Russian Lappland will be interesting. :p

Hehehe...Novgorod Rising!

I hope you didn't go with the merchant faction! Seems to me you'd much rather go with the nobles...but anyway.

I love the ugric culture capabilities of a Novgorod / Russia...it really destroys the Scandinavian countries...

Keep up the good work!
