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.
And finally the central government itself was altered. The Kodoha faction was being dismantled and any sympathizers would be arrested. This would quickly allow the Emperor and his trusted staff to form Japan into an ideal position on the world’s stage.
OK I’ve clocked in to take a look - off to a lively start. I get the feeling Shin and Takara may not be seeing each other much for a long time!
How about an honorable mention to the intelligence agency (modern day ninja clans) who responsible for bringing down the Kodoha faction (the group of ronin within the Imperial Army plotting a coup) and would be essential for Japan's future war effort?
It's tough being sent to join up. And I do not doubt it will get tougher.
Nice little glimpse into the personal side of the new espionage setup. I hope she gets hired!
Three months have passed since Nodoka Okubo had been interviewed for a position in Imperial Intelligence.
Excellent! I’m interested to see the new intel aspects being used and incorporated into the narrative. I am still a novice HOI4 player (more used to HOI3) and haven’t bought the latest update yet.She was now an agent of Imperial Intelligence.
Looks like this new aspect has some decent nuance in it, and can allow for Intel narrative to be tied directly to in-game characters. Unlike in my HOI3 story, where that has to be invented.However, if one of Okubo’s informants turned out to be a double agent Nodoka could be captured, tortured or killed in the line of duty. Therefore another agent would need to be trained in the arts of counterespionage to protect not only Agent Nodoka Okubo but Imperial Japan’s interests as well.
Now it’s getting serious.Forty-eight divisions of Regulars had been trained in under nine months and were now dispatched from naval ports at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They would land on Asia proper in a matter of hours and form a frontline throughout Japanese held territory on the continent.
So that is the plan: full aggressive imperialist. There will be plenty of action, then!It would only be a matter of timing for the right moment to strike into China and to forge Imperial Japan’s divine right to rule Asia.
Some small, yet important, developments. Very charitable of you giving Spain all of that superbly antiquated equipment.
