  2. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    After another horrendous wait I'm finally in the home stretch finishing up this update. The last few weeks have been a wild fuckin' ride, and to summarize it in few words, I think it might have been the worst Christmas I've ever had. Well I suppose it wasn't all terrible, I was with family and...
  3. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Thank you so much for those kind words :happyblush The main difference I think I already let slip was that I'll be starting TTL's Mexico off as an empire as opposed to the republic in mk. 1. Vaguely speaking I'm thinking TTL Mexico here will have an imperial period similar to OTL Brazil, but one...
  4. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    The TL is not dead, though I know it seemed that way. On top of my normal work and school schedule I've been busy the last month or so with moving to another part of town and then not long after that the flu or whatever aerial cocktail floating around hit us really bad. This doesn't even get...
  5. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    The next update is about 50-60% done, I haven't been able to work much on the TL in the last month or so mainly due to school and work. I don't know exactly yet when I'll have it up, so for the time being here's another map of the world as this currently stand, roughly early 1817. I'm...
  6. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Who's to say Cuba won't eventually gain it's place among all the other independence nations of the world? ;) In the short term I feel the Cuban rebels might acquiesce to Mexican control as the lesser of three evils, but realistically I don't think it matters if it's Spain, Mexico or the United...
  7. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Yeah as much fun as it would be to explore the idea of a Mexican Oregon, by the point of the POD it's too late I feel for Mexico to pursue Spain's territorial claims in the far north of the continent. So you're right Oregon's pretty much firmly in the Anglo-American sphere of influence. Florida...
  8. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    The Monroe Doctrine will be a major contention point between Mexico and the United States, and with the former potting the latter in it's place it will undoubtedly become a darling amongst the other independent Latin American nations. The threat of Mexico becoming an imperialist bully are there...
  9. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Thanks so much jycee!! :) I feel Iturbide would totally be one to remain neutral until nearly the end to wait and see which side will prevail to throw their lot with them. Regardless of how many Insurgents feel about the dude (no love lost I'm sure), securing someone like Iturbide would be a...
  10. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Kinda yeah. The climatic elements (such as the snow and the rain) also allude to a sort of deluge as well, but it's indeed an allusion to the Insurgents pressing the Royalists from multiple fronts, much like the Russians and Swedes did with the PLC.

    Threadmarks: El Gran Diluvio: 1815-1817

    El Gran Diluvio 1815-1817 Father José Matías Delgado (depicted with his arm extended) and the Grito of San Salvador, November 5th, 1811 As the Great French War finally began to wane in Europe, the Coalition forces began the gargantuan task of returning the continent to its...
  12. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    I'm doing alright, sorry for the alarm. The update is about 90-95% complete, the only reason I haven't finished it is due to finals and all that fun stuff. It took me a bit longer than I thought as well because I ended up needing to do more research. The next update spends a good amount of time...
  13. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Apologies for the delay y'all, I got about half of the next update done before I became consumed with midterms. I've finally been able to make progress on it now that school's calmed for the moment, so hopefully have it up very soon! :'(
  14. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Hehe you might be on to something ;) Damn I totally missed that. What is the Kingdom of Sardinia without Sardinia? XD I'll fix it asap! A Hapsburg restoration in Mexico does open the door for Austria to be one of the first European nations to deal with the new Mexican Empire, so it is...
  15. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    While I work on the next update, I figured a little mappity map would help pass the time lol. So here's a map of the world at the start of 1815.
  16. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Omg sorry for my late reply, but thank you so much for that in depth analysis and all the ideas for the future Empire. At this point I am pretty much inclined to go with the Duke of Teschen as the new Mexican Emperor. This should give the newly independent Mexican state with a much stronger...
  17. TL-191: After the End

    I don't think there's too much to work off either from the novels or the wiki, but by the end of the SGW it seems you have Wilhelm III as German Emperor and Karl I as the Austro-Hungarian Emperor. Now I don't know if their respective heirs would be the same people as OTL, but I'm inclined to...
  18. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Without giving too much away, it won't be as long as OTL's conflict. Independence for Mexico will still be "won" around 1817-1818 like in Mk. I, in the sense that most of the country will be pacified by that point. The war proper won't be over but it will be relegated to minor holdouts (like San...
  19. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    I haven't quite gotten to him yet, but one thing that has crept into my mind lately is the new Empire's desire to "liberate" Cuba eventualy. IIRC Arredondo actually was totally down to swear fealty to the new Empire OTL but they told him to fuck off. Maybe any TTL Royalist officers...
  20. ¡Por la Patria, Viva México Fuerte! A Mexican TL Mk. II

    Greetings!! :biggrin: Thank you so much for those kind words :) Yeah Calleja always struck me as a foul piece of work, considering how he still was replaced despite being much more successful in OTL. The next update shouldn't take me nearly so long to get to now that I'm on summer break, and...
