• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

Should I form Italy, or stay as the Pope?

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

:eek:
You actually did it!
Mission impossible... is finished!

What can possibly be the next mission? A generic one, I suppose...

Yes, I finished it!

:D

stnylan said:
A very long update, but fitting the nature of the mission. Congratulations on completing it.

Yes, quite long.

Thanks!

Capibara said:
Great update! That was a century full of wars and battles against Protestants, but the prize was worth the effort. Can you unify Italy?

As for the next mission... spl??

Yes! I can unify Italy!

But I'll let everyone here decide if I should or not.

Tycho said:
You made a great progress. I'm very impressed that you managed to complete this mission.

Thanks! Although it did take me a while.

Slinky said:
Fantastic AAR, I really love the pics. I can't wait for the next installment.

Thanks! Next update to follow soon...

Rabid said:
I know it's not really in the flavour of the AAR, but any chance of a culture map of europe? One of the fun things to look at in IN is crazy culture spreads (I've seen the whole Ukraine as Lithuanian, for example!)

Great AAR, KUTGW!

I forgot to take those for this update but I will for the next! :)

Qorten said:
That were some good wars and quite successful missionary work. Another Mission Accomplished! :)

Yes, Papal missionaries are known for their converting power. :cool:

Rakonas said:
the mission must be to build a manufactury, since you have so much money, i suppose.

Yep, thats it!

spl said:
It is probably to build a shipyard.

If everyone would look at the Mission Complete Screeny, they would have found the answer! :eek:

Ahura Mazda said:
You shall build "the Patrimony of Saint Peter", in EU3 terms, a fine arts academy!

Yes!

spl seems to be losing his Mission sensing powers to you! :D

Enewald said:
You have to improve the defenses of some province? :p

mission complete, even if it was impossible, wooot. :D

All my provinces are up to the Highest level of defense. All level 3! :D

Kentti said:
Damnit!! He's right, isnt he? ;)

P.S. So you went and defeated Britain, France, Aragon, Milan, Venice, Aquilea, Pisa, Tuscany, Knights, Sicily and Protestantism, Good job! :D

Yes, He's right.

And yes, I did that all in my spare time. :cool:

P.S. Don't forget the mighty alliance leader Hamburg!

rasmus40 said:
If you say it's a special mission it must be the "academy_in_rome" mission like Ahura Mazda said.

Awesome update by the way. It was very impressive :eek:

Yes, Ahura Mazda is the new spl.

Thanks, although you must remember, it did last 150 years!

Miirshak said:
Cool update!

I was waiting for this :D

Me too! :D :D

Thanks!

Ahura Mazda said:
Why hasn't France converted?

They had the Counter-reformation council event, and I think that's what keeps them from going protestant.

Miirshak said:
In my spain game they didn't convert either... they're like 80% reformed but still catholic as nation religion...

Yes, Castille is losing many colonies to my vassal Aragon because of protestant and reformed Zealots.

Can't wait 'till I annex Aragon. :eek:

Sweboy said:
Errr I must have nodded of for a moment but when did Great Britain form?

Oh, They formed a looooooooooooooooooooooong time ago.

I think it was before the PU with Milan.

rexodia48 said:
Go back to page 12 and 11 they have screenies of frances religion. They have like 5-10 provinces back to catholic.

Yes, they're trying their best to convert their provinces, but without the blessing of the pope, it will take them a long time.

Ahura Mazda said:

Yes, Everyone is invited to join the Ahura Mazda Fanclub! :D :D

Yes, the Ottoman Turks are in decay after conquering half of Europe!

They have cores all the way to the Baltic! :eek:

We see how much it costs and...

I am guessing it is to build a textile manufactory in Lombardia since it has cloth in it and you blanked the resource out.
