Fine words from someone stuck on a barren rock at the edge of the world...
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.
I spent way too long cooking on this idea, so I have aLOT of world building of it in my head, on top of research into making it at least semi-realistic.. (population numbers of the time, typical pop groth rates, etc)Loved the world building!
The Holy Roman Empire is doing very well. That is worrying, but they're barbarians who rule by gavelkind. Their mighty realm won't last...
Took a page out of Cicero's book, been reading a fair amount of him. Since the Insulans are supposed to be extremely Roman as a reaction to their isolation, I imagined the rhetoric of Cicero would be a major, major part of their education.That letter was the most insulting congratulatory letter ever.
Nice job about subjugating Moray. Is it not ironic that Rome will be restored by seizing control of lands that were never Roman?
Nice to know that the Byzantines recognize your greatness. Perhaps you can aid them in reclaiming their half of the Empire?
