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.
Thank you very much.Another RossN Stellaris AAR?! Count me in! The new expansion is certainly rife with possibilities for storytelling (I'm having a lot of fun playing as the custodians of a ringworld), and you've captured the notion of a void-dwelling society perfectly.
Thank you and welcome!Love what you've done with this so far! Subbed!
Very true. Of course sometimes someone comes to you first!These first steps into the Beyond are so full of promise ... and of everything else.
Thank you! I'm having fun with them.I like the way you've made the Yldar, their society, and their ambitions come to life. It's like a David Brin novel, which is great.
Indeed (and yes you certainly can't!)I think the Chairwoman can be forgiven for showing a little bit of sentiment -- after all, who wouldn't want to have the chance to venture out into the unknown for the pure, simple joy of discovery? (And profit, of course; can't forget that.)
Perhaps someday!A FedAARation of the void.
Just normal ones honest!So intelligent life will come to your home system, and this early? Man, what settings did you really choose?
Heh, glad to see you!You tought you can escape from me? Ha! Subscribed!
They are indeed Charismatic. I thought it made sense to factor that into the story to help account for their quick acceptance.Ah, som this scent is making them charismatic I guess? Don't remember the trait image, but sounds like these guys might become too leaders one day.
Very true on all accounts. As I said I hadn't expected to encounter other sapients quiet so quickly, let alone become a multispecies society but it is an interesting angle.Every first contact presents itself with unique risks and opportunities. It's fortunate for everyone involved that these went off with relatively few complications, though I'm sure whoever owned all those stolen resource stocks probably isn't too happy about that.
True. It wasn't a bad shock (except for the thieves! but still definitely a shock!Well that was unexpected, and the Yldar will truly never be the same again.
Um... I am playing traders.Traders and caravaners are never to be trusted!
That is a rather poetic way of putting it.I suppose it is only fitting that the Yldar would have first contact with other species that live solely among the stars.
That is an interesting idea. Yldar society is fairly materialist but they are also xenophiles. We'll see how this develops.I can see the more mystical elements of yldar society adopt the new trade goddess
Thank you! I found the origin idea very interesting and wanted to see if I could make it work!I love how you've captured the void-dwelling culture and society from the outset.
I know!That's a swift way to know about Xenos species!
Thanks for the compliment and delighted to have you aboard!I've never really got in to Stellaris, but with real life apparently creating some more free time for everyone, this might well be the time to try: And what better introduction could there be than a RossN AAR? Subbed!
