    Yeah but you said it in a way that if we would dare to even think about a session on sunday, the wrath of the nine hells would come down upon us.

    So an I can't do sundays or we shouldn't do sundays would have been a bit clearer

    Understandable but we won't play anyway Sunday. We'll have enough time to buckle our pants and prepare for one of the last 4 sessions before the score sets in. I think it's pretty sure the Dutch will win but the 2-5 positions are quite interesting one war can change everything.

    And don't worry I didn't go into anybodies country. That's still illegal and I know it.

    Current save if people don't have it yet.

    I have to say that it's been pretty quiet here the last couple of days. Or maybe it's just my perception of the thread since I've been superbusy and haven't been very active here... I honestly don't know. :P

    Might not be able to make it tonight, depends how much work I can get done in overdrive mode this afternoon. Think Morocco is in pretty good shape, if you could set the AI to not be a dick that would be great.

    Bump, bump, bump. Hindustan misses game. And another one gone and another one gone
    Another one misses game, eh.


    I'm actually quite certain AI fucks up keeping the nation calm and does something stupid like releases some higher revolt risk areas as protectorates, but i'm out of town and can't get back for the game

    I'm probably gonna be a couple of minutes late as well, so it'd be great if we can start 19:40 - 19:45 (i.e. normal time). Sorry about it, but dinner is taking a bit longer than expected in the oven. :P

    This is the last will and testament of Naples, the last gasp of a free nation.

    -All of my remaining provinces are to be split between Morrocco, Germany and Portugal. All 3 have behaved honorably and tried to defend me during these dark days. My small African enclave can go to Ming or Portugal, whoever wants help.
    -To Bavaria, I leave 'Lord Whittlesworth's primer on diplomatic terminology', and I urge him to read the definition of alliance, which is not vassalage. I have never acted aggressively towards you or attacked you. An alliance between two countries does not mean I have to void all my other alliances, as you did, when you backstabbed the bro-allition.
    -To Netherlands I leave nothing, because you have enough stuff already.

    I joined the game three sessions ago, when there were still some minor nations hanging around and some opportunities for expansion. My goal was to form Italy, and for that I needed Lombardia. Unfortunately Netherlands also invaded Milan, and due to the high base tax of that province, did not want to let me have it. This pretty much set the course for Dutch-Neapolitan relations from there on out.

    The stage of the game now is that the world is basically carved into large blocks and expansion, aside from a few colonial opportunities was severely limited. What this basically led to was a constant stream of invasions (Dutch twice, once by the AI, Aragon AI and now Bavaria). Joining in as a minor power becomes an act of pure masochism, a prolonged partition. As such I prefer to keep on in the monday session, and when this game ends, I'll join the new thursday session. Don't misunderstand me, I'm not criticizing anyone. People are playing to win, and there's no room for a (soon to be) 5 province minor in that game.

    But remember that Italy shall always be free, in our hearts.

    The Dragon Throne salutes the brave nation of Naples, and applauds its honesty and forthright dealings. The Emperor would be proud to integrate some of its subjects in to the nation of Ming if that is their wish.

    The war against Portugal concluded, with the African Cape falling to our guns. The natives weren't best pleased, and spent the rest of the session squashing massive rebel stacks with the aid of our allies. Coring helped, so the situation is slowly settling down. The war against Poland was cancelled, saving lives across the globe.

    Otherwise it was a time of peace and building. New trade centres shot up, and a glorious colonial nation was founded.

    Your African enclave got eaten by its original owners, unfortunately .

    We shed a tear for our fallen friend, champion of gentlemanly conduct to the last.

    EDIT: AAR, oh yeah. Portuguese war was a wash for me. I had no CB after the Portuguese colony on my border collapsed, and I was just watching the Warscore tick up while Portuguese ships blockaded my ports.

    Once it became clear that AI Portugal would accept a White Peace with me, but not cede me any territory as long as naval blockades were still going, I backed down and Ming took the Cape Colony. Then, while helping Ming, a 15k stack got jumped by sudden rebels (my mistake, I never should have left them in rebel zones), which sucked.

    Otherwise, my 5/5/1 ruler died, his 46 year old heir being an uninspiring 2/1/2 (with no legal heirs -_-). I built about 50 trade ships to compete with AI Portugal/Hindustan taking my trade in Malacca. I finished Trade Ideas, got Innovative, began to colonise the Philippines node more now that Australia is calmed down.

    Scandinavia - Got my first ship of the line! Only a twodecker though, but I have eighteen of them. Now I just need to get rid of all the carracks, flutes, cogs, galleons and war galleons. It's probably gonna take a couple of sessions, and then I'll have to do it again.

    It was basically a gamble whether you joined in or not and I understand and would totally do the same in your position most likely.

    IC However you broke the agreement that was made so Bavaria saw fit to punish you by taking some provinces to incur favor with her allies, an added bonus was that naples was entirely undefended.

    Also don't judge me too harshly please, just because I am a backstabbing opportunist in thursday session doesn't mean I will be in the monday session

    I'm sad to see you leave but I understand completely, I'm in the same position as you, boxed in by Netherlands, Germany and Byzantium with a smashing one port to my name, most of my sessions are spent surfing the web and occasionally ordering a building or two because I can't do anything against any of my neighbors (well apart from you..).
    I too did consider getting the colony idea but that thought was rendered pointless by Japan colonising Madagascar towards the end of the session, there's just nothing left to colonise now.

    No hard feelings at all Reb I totally understand your position, I was your only avenue for expansion. Shit happens.
