Good to see you back!
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.
It's always nice to find a gaia planet like the Veil isn't it? I was a little disappointed to see nobody took the high risk, high reward opportunity to keep the machine going on Finintarogga to complete its work but you can't have everything.
The best defence is an offence, that must be a superior argument when winning! As it turned out, their conception of “protection” was offensive in nature. The new government attacked the overextended Hive in the late 270s, seizing the former cradonian core worlds in the name of the revolution.
Good to see you back!And we're back! I want first to thank everyone for their patience; writing for me has always been, and likely always will be, very slow. Second, as you'll see, we have arrived at another interlude (I've decided to refer to my interstitial short stories as interludes, and have updated the threadmarks to reflect that). This one takes place almost at the precise moment we left off in the main narrative, but is merely tangential to it - and, I'll emphasize, not necessarily a preview of things to come .
The next chapter will kick off an era of conflict, with the Governance at war for 37 of the next 41 years. It's a time of change for the vailons, as they grow into something more than a minor regional power and, at the same time, experience a major internal demographic shift. I'll still be covering the same amount of ground per chapter (roughly five years per installment, as I look back), so we will be in this era for quite a while.
I'm glad to see you're back and even more glad to hear the war drums will be beating for some considerable time. It's always fun to lock horns with your rivals.
Great to hear that you're back!
I always love these little interludes, they really make your world come alive. It's fun to see how different the cultures are despite their phenotypical similarities.
I also really love your twist on the spider. It's going to be a wild ride!
Good to see you back!
