I love how the butterfly effects of Trotsky's takeover makes such a believeable, yet different world. The sultan back in Istanbul, wonderfully interesting!
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.
And because I'm using the same tweaking of Mod33 I used for Siegerkranz, which includes an expanded Ottoman chain, it's actually more likely. The trick is always explaining it, because the chances of the Sultan being the replacement for Ataturk are somewhere between "when pigs fly" and "never." Among other things, Ataturk was a combination of charismatic fascist dictator and genuine reformer, sort of what Mussolini wanted to be, minus the war, so there's no nostalgia for the old order.Having the Ottomans back in Istanbul is actually a staple feature of mod33.
