    A Map of the South African Republics: 1930
    History of the World: 1836 to the Present.
    Ever since the 1640s, Europeans have been interested in Southern Africa. The first permenent settlement was a trading post, built by the Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie, or Dutch East India Company. The Dutch controlled the area, especailly the area surrounding the Cape of Good Hope until the Napoleonic Wars, when we took it in 1795 to keep it from being taken by the French. From then on, the colony was ours, although from 1803 to 1806 we gave it back to the Dutch. At that time, the colony numbered about 25,000, and was run completly by the elite, who were all Dutch. Tensions grew higher between the Dutch speaking and the English speaking populations, finally in 1833, when we abolished Slavery in the Empire, tensions were high, so in 1835, massive groups of Dutch Speakers, known as the Boers, moved inwards, in hopes of retreating from British authority in a move known as the Great Trek. Most of these Voortrekkers, or pioneers, moved north of the Orange River, then marking the boundry of the Cape Colony and many congregated in Bloemfontain. However, after establishing a Republic there, many went seperate ways with many crossing into Natal in hopes of a new Boer Republic, but later, a meeting of Boers with a Zulu King turned out badly, and the Boers were massacered, however the Boers eventually won the war against the Zulus in that area, in which they established the Republic of Natalia, which we annexed in 1854 in the 1st Boer War. By the 1st Boer war, quite a few Boer and other nations existed in that area of Africa. One of the most interesting nations was the Griqua Republic, established on the Orange River west of the Orange Free State. The Griquas were descendents of Boers and Africans, who could not live well in Boer Society, so they moved off alone, but even that did not stop the Griquas and the Boers from having an alliance, which served them well during the 1st Boer War, which began on the 30th of April 1852 when British Troops attacked De Aar, then an Orange Free State Border Town. The War continued until the March of 1856, when a white peace was declared, however, a seperate peace with Natalia, which we had overrun led to us annexing the country. For Years, the Boers lived dangerously near the Cape, which was frightening, as if they struck South, they could have taken our Southern African Ports, and the Empire could have fallen. But for 30 years, no such thing happened. One of the most interesting incidents of these 30 years was one that occured in 1861, when a group of Scots and Irish, upset with the way things were being run in the Home Islands, left and went into the Veldt, and attempted to establish their own republic, known as the Deasach Cealt Poblachd, which survived until 1864, when the joined the Transvalli Republic as an autonomous region. However this period of peace ended on Christmas 1884, when Orange Free State Troops began moving over the border into Basutoland, which was only recently taken from the Zulus, as the Free Staters moved there, many Zulus joined there force as well as Boers long living under our control. For a few months, they trounced every force we sent at them, and slowly they began to take control of the Eastern Cape. However, at the Battle of Cradock, the turning point came, and we pushed the Boers back, and by the end of 1888, we were north of the Orange River. But we eventually won, and we pushed the Boers and Griquas North of the Caledon and Orange. During that whole time, the Boers were supplied through the Belgian Congo by French Arms, curtuosy of Napoleon III. In 1899, once again, war broke out in the 3rd Boer War, in which we trounced the Orange Free State in a matter of weeks, and took some lands north of the Caledon, in exchange for Hope Town. The 4th Boer War occured in the Witner of 1905-1906, after an incident on the Griqualand West, Cape Colony Border in which a group of British Settlers shot at a Griqua farm. After the Settlers were killed by a group of Revengeful Griquas, again, we sent a punitive expedition into the Griqua Lands, and then left, having received reperations. But now as Chapter XII comes to an end, the year is 1930, and tensions are still high between the Boers and our colonys. But in a few years, there will be a war that is fought the world over.

    Bacons game ideas:

    Dystopia:1970
    The year is 1970, and everything is going to hell.

    The 1960s are over, and the dream of peace and love is gone. Instead, Race Riots rock the US, with Black Panthers and other groups becoming ever more radical and Soviet-Supported. In California, war has almost been declared between states over the meager oil and water supply. The current President, one of the most powerful men in the world, Richard Nixon, has recently been accused of [GARBLED], and may step down as his power wanes. In Central and South America, Soviet and American rebels battle it out in Jungles and Small Towns.

    Now that O.P.E.C has stopped selling to many other countrys, including the west, and with Gas Prices skyrocketing, many citys have begun to fall into Urban Chaos. The Age Old enemy of the Muslims, the Israelis, have recently been stockpiling arms, in fear of an attack by the Soviet Supported Arab League. Africa is this age is a hellhole, with conflicts in Portuguese Africa, a vestige of an age past. South Africa too is a vestige, and could very well collapse, with the White Rulers and the Blacks at each others necks.

    (Europe Stuff)With such things happening elsewhere, Europe must surely have its own troubles too. In France the young people of the left have begun go riot and it wmay soon spread to the rest of Western Europe. But in many countrys, such as France for example, nationalism for Quebec Freedom is one the rise, but also, Celtic Nationalism, especially in Brittany, that Charles de Gaulle recently cracked down on Nationalism in Brittany.
