Africa, Asia, and the wacky hijinks of the Trastamara-Aviz crew.
Yeah, well everyone kind of want to see the Far East. Maybe because seeing Catholic samurai fighting "por Dios, Patria, y Rey" sounded cool to them.In order of preference, option 4, 1, 2, & 3. I realize I've put the long-wait ones first, but those would be very interesting to get the details on as a grand historical view.
I admit to being very curious to see how different the Mediterranean world becomes with a united Spain untethered to Austrian interests, and having drastically altered the course of trade and commerce with the effective elimination of large scale Barbary piracy. It seems as though Spanish concerns about the Ottomans would be related to its Italian interests, (with religious motivations as a less practical concern) with the relationship to Austria being simply one of pragmatism. That would seem to open up a lot of potential for a closer Spanish relationship to Poland-Lithuania, Venice, etc even to the point of Austria's disadvantage. A lovely venue for diplomatic and political scheming all around!
I wouldn't be surprised if the Portuguese or Spanish recruit Japanese Christian settlers for their colonies, the ocean currents lead straight from Japan to California (or Kariforniya in Japanese I'd assume) after all.Given this, plus the Christianization of large parts of Japan, I wonder if a Japantown is going to form in Manila?
