My assumption is that the RU will take the coastal regions of Brazil and just drive the remaining enemy forces in and make it impossible for them to get new weapons or supplies. The refugees and armed forces that escaped would start slashing trees and setting up farms deep in the middle of the Amazon run by warlords who are loosely connected in one “government”. They’d probably massacre any natives they found as well. Meanwhile the RU is slashing and burning the edges to make room for cow pastures and farms for the clans and independent farmers. Then a few decades later they start scouting out the villages in hidden in the Amazon from above and firebomb the hell out of them probably with napalm and agent orange. At least that’s how I’d like it to go
 
In 1.0 Oswald was considered even worse than Steele. It seems like 2.0 Steele is even worse than 1.0 Steele, so will 2.0 Oswald become even worse than 2.0 Steele? I would like to know.

TBH, in 1.0 Steele didn't get that much development, being kind of a placeholder between Custer and Oswald. Here, we get more focus on him as a character. I especially appreciate the focus on his early years-given his origins, it makes sense that he and his adoptive father would have a strained relationship.

I really want him to kill his birth father in the last episode of this section but thats very unlikely since he was probably sent to a penal colony.
 
It's certainly not in the spirit of Pinnacle stewardship, at any rate
That's true however I think that Pinnacle stewardship would take place under Oswald as Stelle couldn't careless about the environment seeing it as something to dominate where as Oswald would have no choice out of nesscity considering the mess that he'll have to fix that's how I see it at least
 
so for Oswald, how many propaganda posters will be made for him during his reign (my guess is about a thousand separate ones at least), speaking of which, here's probably the thing I've put the most work into using photoshop

So those posters are awesome, first off. Second, anybody expecting Eduism to sweep through whatever's left of the Neuties as the war grinds on? I'm hoping we get an in-depth look at Eduism like we got for Beutelism
 
One Solar System, Indivisible? I love it.

If we're going for more astronomical imagery, Mao Zedong was equated with "the red sun" for much of the Cultural Revolution. And the sun is fueled by nuclear fusion, not unlike a giant, continually-exploding Peacemaker...

More from Sturgill Simpson's Sound & Fury! This time in Holy Nippon!

The more I think about it the more I love the idea of Oswald getting sent to Japan after the war. Ending up as a closet "nipponphile", MacArthur acting as his most trusted advisor/ favored mentor and a desire to conquer China.
 
So, I have a complete story for Pinnacle Future lined out at this moment. I spent all day charting it out first on paper and then more in two messages to two members of this board. It will be my magnum opus by far, and will mostly be a novel, rather than exposition. It'll be three interwoven storylines of three characters an arc going from the late 1930s all the way into the 1990s. The direction of it feels "right," like everything is coming together and falling in place perfectly. I'll try to finish Union Forever tonight and tomorrow (already have a bit of the next-to-last update ready). But yeah, I'm more on the Lucas side of things (cool ideas, weaker dialogue) but I'm hoping this will really improve my skills. I'm friggin' pumped.

I also have designed this Universe's version of "Walt Disney":



He'll be one of the main characters in Pinnacle Future, and that's all I'll say for now. I chose Mortimer as his first name because Walt Disney OTL wanted to name Mickey Mouse Mortimer but his wife thought that was an ugly name. Krummhorn is the town in Germany where Ub Iwerks' family came from.

Thank you Napoleon53.
Were there any large purges of the RU government? I know there were purges of various ethnic groups, but what about the RU government? (Especially in the Custer/Steele eras?)
I know "de-steelification" might be a mass destruction of the old government?

Steele has purged the government. He made adultery a capital offense so he could just accuse his enemies of being unfaithful and then have them killed. He also purged the Clans pretty damn spectacularly.
 
so, since the RU future is going to be 70s punk, there two things that caught my attention:
1. There is this CNN video about how the 70s had a lot of terrorism n the states and the world (https://www.cnn.com/videos/tv/2015/07/27/series-the-seventies-terrorism.cnn-creative-marketing ), so that got me thinking, will there be a terrorist problem in the RU future. That problem might get more interesting if that trend meets the terrorist trend of the 2000s and 1990s?

2. There were a lot of anti-solders and pro-solders -ism's happening in the back end of the Vietnam war, so what I'm wondering is that will there be that situation but far worse happening in the future?

Considering how much soldiers and the military are worshiped in RU culture and the AFC, I can’t really see that happening much ITTL. However, there might be a similar movement focused against the likes of ORRA, with them being perceived as stupidly evil commissars who murdered good Jehovah worshiping enlisted boys for having the god given smarts to call them out on their own stupidity or armchair generalship

Probably as you are always going to have to minor terrorist campaign but the thing is that they will never be able to rise up against the Ru like overthrowing city's as due to cleansing month as they will never be more than 5 percent of the population so best case for the "inferiors population" is something along the lines of the troubles worse case Oswald just immolates them all for pissing him off
