1820 is the end of the game in EU4 so there wasn't anything 'next' (for reasons like that's pretty much where early-modern warfare ends). Pretty sure Jacob's empire was much stronger than Timmy/Russia, the size is misleading, the territories he's holding would make him far stronger militarily so they wouldn't dare (if he's not allied to one of them, I can't say for sure but a Russia alliance is common when one plays Byzantium).
Yeah exactly and actually Russia and Spain were both Junior partners in a personal union with me so they were both technically mine as well. laugh.gif

This is in stark contrast to our joint game, rip me. I hate the HRE.

He's away for the first part of this week (and I think just band stuff has been keeping him), I'm not certain when he's back, it may be this week, but we should continue this when he is.

So yes, I started playing this game a bit.

I prefer starting as a count rather than a king or emperor, as I prefer starting as a lower ranking lord and working my way up, and also starting with a massive empire can be a bit daunting for a new player to control. I prefer to start in a region where the king is evil and I can try and plot to assassinate him for his crimes. I also would prefer to start with a younger lord in his 20s so can do a lot before he dies.

But half the fun of CK2 is playing as an immoral evil king! Makes you sympathise with fairy-tale villains. And it is nice playing as the power behind the throne but there's a lot to be said for being the king or emperor and struggling to keep your realm in order, that's fun too.

I like roleplaying based on what traits my character has. If I'm kind and just then I'll be a lawful good law follower who uses diplomacy and honourable combat to advance his power - if I'm cruel and deceitful then the murders can start piling up. And if I die then I can end up completely switching my playstyle.

OK I have started recently as the count of Durham, earliest date possible (rise of Charlemagne era). I like to start as a vassal rather than an independent lord as it is harder. I am a good lord so I am plotting to kill the cruel king of Wessex to free his people from evil (current plot power just over 50%, achieved through bribing two people, still not enough though sad.gif ) and am also making a claim to a land in Ireland ruled by an cruel lord with his equally cruel heir. Its unlikely this will work though as a. Ireland is far from Durham and b. my diplomat only has an average ability as a diplomat apparently (level 8 diplomacy). I am still looking for a new diplomat to replace him.

There isn't much to do at the moment though and i like taking things slowly rather than fast forwarding too much so I am just arranging the marriage of my four unmarried court members to keep me occupied. It's not easy as they are lowborn so have to look at the courts around northern Europe for suitable candidates. I don't want big age-gap marriages.

Looks like the base game of CK2 is free now, possibly forever!!! ohmy.gif get into it now!

Also Paradox Con is on this weekend, looks like some cool new stuff for HOI4, Stellaris, Battletech, no Victoria III yet but we can hope.
