I still have absolutely no idea how Personal Unions work, but I do love when in-game reversals happen
I'm really sorry about the borders, I was determined to take Paris and I just kept getting hit by coalition wars before I could do my imperialism

I think they took enough damage...

Only thirty years in and already in this much debt.

Sadly the Hussites did not survive into the Reformation.

First time I've seen the Ottomans join the Catholic League, likely to balance out the Poles.

I wondered why weird nations keep getting nominated as emperor (Spain actually was the Emperor for quite a while)
Turns out they peacefully decided that Catholicism is the official faith of the HRE...in *that* Germany. I almost admire their stubbornness. It means less problems for the Ottomans (and by extension, me)

On a sidenote, something which I'm a litltle irritated by is how unwilling allies have been to join any of my wars even with favours and trust. Yet the moment they declare a stupid war I'm expected to drop everything to take part. They seem to always be in massive debt somehow

agreeing to join an ally's war does not need to mean actively participating at all. Also, you can untick "will join offensive wars" in your relation with an ally, though this also turns off passive favour gains.

That's what I've been doing, but they inevitably siege down a bunch of my provinces which destroys my income. I'm mostly just confused about how bad the debt seems to get, if it's just something that happens then I feel like the penalty to joining wars while in debt should probably be toned down but I feel like if they're in too much debt to fight an OPM they probably shouldn't be started massive wars a few months later

What the Flipis even going on with the imperial incident voting system? It seems so random - I've not found any reliable way to change the votes of princes outside of outright subjugating them. Even at 200 opinion and 10 dip rep princes still vote whatever they want.

Paradox finding new ways to kill your god heirs since 1454 :( (isabella's event spawned on top of the habsburg, hiding it from view, on the same tick, the game crashed)

I asked for it I guess

I had my isabella spawn whilst my Hapsburg heir existed, quite sad. Also got "marriage policies pay off" with brabant so they got a Hapsburg heir, only for it to die off

No pictures yet as I’m still in the middle of the run, but, playing as England/GB, and the Surrender of Maine event NEVER fired.

I didn’t release any vassals, or any other cheese. What are the odds of that happening (or, rather, not happening)?

Assuming you didn't war with France or ally them in the first few years, the chance of no Surrender of Maine is about 3%. The MTTH is 12 months and it can't fire after 30 Dec 1449
Nice! After I got France under PU through war, the Burgundian inheritance event fired, and they made concessions to France :cool:
