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.
Ehm... Erm... I was talking about the court of the emperor of xenoi, of course! We all heard what a disgusting, degraded and vicious place it is! And the so-called 'emperor' of xenoi is certainly insane - he opposes the Imperium, the embodiment of everything that is good in this world, and believes that he can be equal to the Augustus! The nerve! The blasphemy!Thank you very much! Also please report to the nearest doux palace for interrogation for spreading lies about Emperors, umh, "condition".
Gameplay-wise, not really - but the second son of Augustus, Markos Angelos, had better stats, so...
Will do; that's good to hearKill them all and to comment on your earlier post i'm feeling better. I had peunomia(Don't know how to spell it) and they had to give me meds but i'm better now.
Yeah, this is ugly - I think if there will be no other choice I'll just mod the converted game so that Timurids have these small counties and give some basetax or gold to the Ilkhanate instead. Pretty borders are important!Those little ilkhanate blotches in timurid territory, they hurt my eyes. And they'll defend that tiny blotch in arabia with a couple hundred thousand troops... quick, dispatch imperial spies to convince the khagan that those isolated ilkhanate counties should be retaken!
Oh, right. In that case then, death to the false emperors!Ehm... Erm... I was talking about the court of the emperor of xenoi, of course! We all heard what a disgusting, degraded and vicious place it is! And the so-called 'emperor' of xenoi is certainly insane - he opposes the Imperium, the embodiment of everything that is good in this world, and believes that he can be equal to the Augustus! The nerve! The blasphemy!
Yeah, I know that - there's too much going on to concentrate on the characters who are by the way rather short-lived, the shorter the higher they are in the imperial administration. I'm glad you enjoy reading about Demetrios because his character is my attempt to give, well, one of the characters some spotlight considering that we are quickly approaching EU4 which even with mods is rather devoid of memorable people. And I'm glad you remembered "a colourful Varangian" Though I have to admit that by introducing this huge and ever-changing cast I wanted to point out that while people come and go, the instutitions like the Council or the Throne - or the Imperium itself - still stand.Concerning the new chapter - another piece of excellent work. Unfortunately, the characters change too often and there is hardly any time to get used to their personalities, but a few of them are quite memorable - there was a colourful Varangian leader a bit earlier, and Demetrios is quite interesting. Not power-hungry, not stupid, completely a product of the world he lives in... but not nice, either.
Thank you for these very kind words! I have to admit that I REALLY hope that 1.7 patch won't break glorious Purple Phoenix Arises mod by dorimi - there's so much flavor for the Imperium there that it would be a great shame. And since he's no longer maintaining the mod, hope is all I have really.This AAR is enough of a reason to become a fan of CKII; unfortunately, I fell in love with Paradox games long time ago, after reading one excellent Russian Mazovia AAR of the original CK back in 2005. Outstanding work! Look forward to seeing the Imperium in EUIV! This game is, arguably, even more fascinating than CKII, and I don't say such things easily.
You can subscribe to my new AAR and find more details about it here. There's nothing to read yet because we're still waiting for 1.7 patch and "Res Publica" release but as soon as they are avaible I'll start working on the first chapter. I hope you'll like it![size=+2]Pro Fide, Lege et Rege
Crash Course Commonwealth History[/size]
Pro Fide, Lege et Rege (Latin for "For Faith, Law and King") - an 18th-century motto of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and then of Poland. It superseded the earlier Si Deus Nobiscum quis contra nos (Latin for "If God is with us, then who is against us") and was featured on a variety of buildings, military decorations and equipment. Today the slogan is used as the title of the Polish scientific journal of the Institute of Genealogy.
Just a little more patience pleaseI can hardly wait!
So what is right and what is wrong?How soon? When is soon? What is soon? Is soon in the near future? Is soon in the distant future? Is soon love? Then what is love? Baby don't hurt me? Baby don't hurt me? No more?
Thanks! Good that you noticed, there are a lot of tiny details in this AAR and sometimes I wonder whether anyone notices them at allGreat as always!
Also, I saw that some council members had an ambition to become another councilor- I think that you should use it in the next council meeting
With daggers and poison.Subject of today's meeting: the councillors will play musical chairs for new positions.
They are long gone BUT the norther part of de jure Germany is still of Breton culture, so you may say their legacy lives onThis is going to seem quite ridiculous but... Does the Breton Band still hold land?
Indeed. This is truly an endeavor for an... inspired ruler. A lesser mind might think it the decision of a madman.There, after few days of fasting and prayer, Augustus Alexios Angelos announced his decision to Demetrios and people of the City during a great mass in basilica of Hagia Sophia – in his wisdom, he decided to render unto God the things that are God's.
Saint Markos Isapostolos protect us.
In English, we refer to these as monoliths, not because of their size, but because they are large slabs of stone erected in coordination with astrological events in honor of pagan gods.Can I make a suggestion concerning formatting?
It is probably a good idea to break the text into smaller paragraphs - it is hard to read walls of text like, for example, the one at the beginning of this update.
As far as I know, the basic rule of thumb for online text formatting is to have paragraphs 3-4 sentences long, 5-6 at most. The longer they get, the less readable the text becomes.
I understand that large paragraphs probably serve imitate a ponderous historical work, but our eyes cry for mercy, sometimes literally.
