The Unexpected: In the time of Louis XII's heir

Good chapter, looking forward to Spanish and French war and that France will finally be able to make good conquests in the Low Countries

Considering I'm thinking upon the period immediately following this TL, I'm working on the build-up of this conflict due to the context and its specificities.

A little question: maps are what composed the remaining appendices before a final announcement.

As the French version is now totally published, I have two possibilities:
_ either keep the current pace
_ or double publications

In the first case, it is for six months of publication.
On the second, for three months.

I have no issue to take one or the other, but I'd like to have your opinion.

Delay Warning
Delay Warning

From thursday till May 5th, I'll be in vacation in Italy with my family, and unable to publish the next appendice for the next week.

I didn't inform before because I wasn't sure if I'll bring my PC for this endeavour and I finally decided otherwise, notably to benefit of time with my family and rediscover Toscany again.

Once I'm back, this message might be deleted as it is a temporary measure.
