Hello to y'all, again. I was toying with an idea of jumping into DH AARwriting for quite a while. Last attempt...too lazy to mod things, also lost interest in DH for a while. It's not really an excuse anyway and that's yet another reason I deserved a capital punishment in my life...
Anyway, I started looking at all countries, trying to come up with a good plan, checking events to see what I can expect and what I might have to add...At first I was planning to go for Magyar Imperialism game, where I'll try to push Hungarian border to its maximum reach, and also claim countries once ruled by rulers of Hungarians (technically, since Anjou dynasty was ruling in Hungary for quite a while, I'd end up taking southern Italy and probably whole France, daymn!). I even messaged Kry at KR forums asking about some additional info, but heck - maybe he can't be online recently? Hopefully he won't collect and send me all data once it's too late
Still, kinda couldn't decide to go for it. Also, news of new Beta of Kaiser came out, just when I wanted to start an Italian Federation game...so I was like "heck, let's go check some events before that happens, shall we?" I happened to listen to good old HoI1 version of Ride of the Valkyries...and since I've been joking quite a lot with my friend about Theodor Innitzer and his demonic eyes of wrath (oh yes dat demonic eyes of wrath om my lord!)...
...at least you know how did I came up with the title now...
It just seems so good for me. I like stories with one, evil-minded genius leading a bunch of people towards nearly impossible goal, and it doesn't even matter if they succeed of not. There are more characters like that in Kaiserreich. Everyone's favourite Mad Baron? I'm saving him for a Very Special Day now (one day!). Shangqing Nutjobs Boss? What was he, Zhang Tianran? Yeah, but I didn't feel like another China AAR...
Also I felt like that could be a good alternative in case when I want to write something, but don't feel like updating my For the Glory AAR. Since mentioned FtG AAR is more of a hiding behind France's back, this one will provide me some Mad Action (TM), since I want to literally paint map green in this one.
And so we are back at Innitzer, he and his Eyes of Wrath (of doom!), also he's NS and turns Italian Federation into Evil Lair of Evilness (and loads of Populism), so I imagine that - if time was right - he would make a move. A pretty interesting one.
Here we go then, unto the Kaiserreich Madness again! (That's alternative KR loading screen BTW, of course I haven't made that map you know )
Of course I'm gonna past first episode in a second. Or two. Or seventy-eight. In a bizzle.
Mod: Kaiserreich 1.4 BETA 3
Country: Italian Federation
Goals: To subdue every single Communist and Imperialist state, thus restoring Kingdom of God.
Additional events: Maybe. Actually there's enough stuff in KR already. I feel like I don't have to add much until lategame
