  1. Under the Southern Cross We Stand

    "Significantly" may mean it went worse, too. Let's not pretend that early 20th century Australians were less dismisive than their british counterparts about people they considered lesser.
  2. Industrial Progress: A Story Of Venetian Suffrage (Haitus)

    Columbus was Genovese, but Gil Eames, Bartolomeu Dias and Vasco da Gama were all portuguese. The Iberians had plenty of experience with atlantic navigation, and the Italian naval involvement was a cause for that, not a impediment. Because the Italians controlled the Mediterranean, Castille and...
  3. Industrial Progress: A Story Of Venetian Suffrage (Haitus)

    We are already at the end of the 15th century. America should be discovered any decade now, and even if they are not conquered as OTL the silver will reach Europe via trade. The conditions for the discovery aren't much changed: Western Europe is cut off from the path east to Asia; the fact that...
  4. Una diferente ‘Plus Ultra’ - the Avís-Trastámara Kings of All Spain and the Indies (Updated 10/18)

    Or it could go weird. I do remember the background fluff of some timeline (now that I think on it, it may have been one of GURPS alternate worlds, it was a long time ago) where the Papal states survives, but one of the popes took the whole "give Caesar what belongs to Caesar" rather seriously...

    The original Guadalajara in Spain remains, to there is a good chance there is/will be some town named Guadalajara somewhere in Mexico.
  6. Lands of Ice and Mice: An Alternate History of the Thule

    There is nothing of interest OTL, but in the Thule realms all those chunks are filled with towns and even some cities.
  7. Industrial Progress: A Story Of Venetian Suffrage (Haitus)

    It seems he at least survives long enough to return his diary to the ducal archives, and the fact that it is kept in the dual archives in the first place is probably a hint that he lives long enough to become important for Venice somehow.

    Given that Bruno was not executed for being a Champion of Science!! but rather for the denial of several "minor" Catholic doctrines, like the Trinity, the divinity of Christ, and transubstantiation, plus being a pantheist and a believer i reincarnation, I doubt there is anything the king can (or...
  9. Industrial Progress: A Story Of Venetian Suffrage (Haitus)

    Given the tiny little accouting problem at the Arsenale, I suspect the manly marines may be slightly lacking in manliness...
  10. Industrial Progress: A Story Of Venetian Suffrage (Haitus)

    Yes, it's back! ~dances a gig~ A small detail: Unless he is a vampire, if Vettor Pisani was throwing rocks into ponds in the 14th century Venice, he certainly was not writing an autobiography in 1920.
  11. A Most Glorious Revolution: Savoyard Spain

    No, the titles of prince of Girona and Viana also belong to Philip. The three princedoms (Asturias, Girona and Viana) are the titles of the heir of the throne for Castille, Aragon and Navarre, like the Prince of Wales in England. All three belong to the heir, Victor and William are just Infantes...
  12. A Most Glorious Revolution: Savoyard Spain

    To play devil's advocate, there is no good (and easy) solution for growing radicalism. If you could convince radicals by talking peacefully, then they would not be radicals in the first place. If you are heavy handed, you risk the situation worsening until widespread unrest covers the country...

    That is a modern point of view. 16th century Spain still has centuries until the rise of laicism. In a religious nation, Churches are very productive: The provide social stability, community meeting halls, and social cohesiveness. They are also the only institution providing education to the...

    ? Viriato was not a conqueror... he was the very opposite of a conqueror, a native rebel against foreign conquerors :cool:
  15. Vinland, the Land of Wealth and Ambition

    But none of the Varangian Guard managed to get crowned as the Byzantine Emperor.
  16. what if Spain Continued Reconquista?

    Hey, Spain only sacked Rome and imprisoned the Pope once...
  17. Europa Universalis III

    50 years is for cores of provinces you already own. Inheritances happen when your current king dies, you have good reasons with the nation in personal union, and some other unknonw factors that probably include diplomacy, army, the moon phase and which tie the CEO of Paradox chose this morning...
  18. Europa Universalis III

    Yes, they force you. The (censored) Alliance Cascades do. My conquest of Brittany? I invaded Tver, a two province nation between the Teutons, Lithuania and Muscovy. They only had alliances with Mazovia and some irrelevant HRE minor I do not remember. One month later, I am in a war with ten...
  19. Europa Universalis III

    Am I the onyl one who has trouble following long-range plans? Because, no matter my original intentions, my empires always end all over the globe. My "recover Rome" Byzantuim eats Persia, my "rush for America" Spain conquers the ottomans and begins the crawl to the stepped over the ruins of the...
  20. Victoria II

    I have decided to starts a new game. To build the Kingdom of Texas (as a trial run to build the Kindom of USA). My Texan game started surprisingly well -I not only defeated Mexico with no american intervention, I managed to actually conquer mexican texas- I have spent my original policy...
