    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Yeah, no such thing as a "good" or "bad" state, just the successful and the failures. Not even really an issue with empires as the local nations generally aren't any better or worse than the new guys.

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    In fact, with the coming issues of the Little Ice Age in Rhomania I wonder if this will cause a small push of farmers, traders, and others try their luck settling in Rhomania in the East.

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    I think Spain still has a couple holdings here and there but overall yeah, Rhomania in the East largely broke European power in Indonesia/India aside from their own.

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Yep, in fact the collapse of a central Bengal state is actually a good thing for Rhomania. With how it is now Rhomania has a lot more leverage in regards to purchasing rice, dye, fabric, and spices from the region as there are now several smaller powers rather than one in the delta and along the...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Hell, they lost their best and most knowledgeable admiral in the area after essentially losing most of their holdings in the east as well. Rhomania proper is going to be in for some rough times but the colonies will likely be their saving grace with either money or food. It won't stop the pain...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    So sort of like Andreas I and his kids and direct descendants. Really hard to live up to a near mythic legend.

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Wow, Odysseus burns brightly and while only briefly he scorched his mark upon the world. And with the way Mesopotamia was resolved why do I get the feeling some stupid Rhoman emperor tried to actually fully control Mesopotamia and Persia objects.

    Roman Empire Border At The Vistula River (Or in Basin)

    Wrong, it's a border along the Urals, Caspian, and Zagros.

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Damn, you know Venkata Raya has got to be utterly giddy, almost every serious threat on the subcontinent just got destroyed, the Sikhs and Persians will take decades to solidify the hold they have in northern India and aren't threats in the near term. This is going to allow Vijayanagara to focus...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Yeah, reading about Brandenburg/Prussia is funny how it kept bouncing from being a powerhouse to barely keeping it together and back again.

    Wrapped in Flames: The Great American War and Beyond

    Also, we are acting as if no issue is going to arise between now and alt-WWI. The problem with that is the last half of the nineteenth century and first decade of the twentieth were filled with crisis that had great powers on either side before being negotiated. Now imagine that where the US was...

    Wrapped in Flames: The Great American War and Beyond

    Central America doesn't exactly have good feelings for the US, or at least has very conflicted feelings. Not to mention that even if they did it's not like they can actually act on them since they don't stand a chance militarily or economically, though they are the states most likely to be...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Mercenaries, the area they are from is poor agriculture land so like the Swiss in Europe they probably are overrepresented in the Indian mercenary population.

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    I know he isn't going to be leaving the Rhine border, Lotharingia is well under his thumb at this point, but considering how long the war in Germany has been going at this point it probably wouldn't take much to really upset the treasury accounts. As for Odysseus going further, I think they...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    It would be utterly hilarious if Henry has to stop his war in Germany, or even gets pushed back a little, because his cash flow gets reduced because Rhomania wrecks a colony on the other side of the world.

    Wrapped in Flames: The Great American War and Beyond

    1. Relationship mellowed after France was utterly crushed by Britain in the Napoleonic wars and were still rivals up to the emergence of Germany as a power they both feared. 2. France considered Russia a threat up to the point that Germany became a much closer and more pressing one. 3. Pretty...

    Wrapped in Flames: The Great American War and Beyond

    True, but to point to the France and German it took how many wars and the utter devastation of both nations, and the temporary destruction of Germany itself, to make them allies? Not to mention it was to combat the greater threats of both the USSR and reduce their dependence on the US. The US...

    Wrapped in Flames: The Great American War and Beyond

    On the other hand Japan and Germany didn't get to have troops on US soil, at least not any part that actually counted, or responsible for devastating so much of the US. There are going to be a lot of people, if not the vast majority, who will have lost a family member or been injured in some way...

    WI; European Coalition invades the Continental United States in 1914

    Would they though? I mean, if Europe has decided to combine forces to knock out the most powerful nation in the western hemisphere in what would look like a neocolonial retaking of North America then how long till this juggernaut turns south? Because Latin America combined at this time is weaker...

    An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Probably depends on if this is the only disaster, they still have a lot of men and plenty of manpower to draw from, or if this is only the first one. Chances are though that with Vijayanagara still moving an army into the area and the Sikh-Rhomanian-Persian army moving deeper into Awadh another...
