    Personally I'd recommend Sweden, the rest of Europe is quite busy whilst Scand is empty. Strong nation, room to expand, western tech.

    Morocco and Algiers aren't really that good anymore with both Portugal and Aragon taken. mamlukes are closed in. Central Europe could provide a spot with Austria gone but still stuck in between Bohemia, Burgundy, Venice, Poland. Eastern Europe/Russian area is mostly called for. Asia with Timurids, Bengal, Dai Viet and Japan is quite busy and bit hard for newer players. America well you know, it's America.

    It's funny to see the difference between the Paradox developer session and us. They just finished their campaign and they're "Bragging" who killed what amount of players.

    My Poland should be able to help Sweden break out of its personal union under Denmark if needed.


    Edit: A nation in north-west Italy/south-east France could be an valid choice.
    Switzerland or Savoy.

    Switzerland;
    Advantages: Easily defensible starting provinces. Strong national ideas and traditions. I assume they have some interesting historical national events and decisions. Team up with Burgundy to destroy Savoy and France, or with Venice and Bohemia to take bits off Austria, Bavaria and the HRE, or play the HRE game.

    Disadvantages: Base tax of starting provinces is a bit low.

    Savoy;
    Advantages: Strong national ideas and traditions. Ability to form Sardinia-Piedmont if you can come to an arrangement with Aragon. Begins our latest save as HRE emperor. Is right next to very valuable french provinces.

    Disadvantages: Is right next to France, you'd want to form an alliance with Burgundy quickly.

    Hmm, generally speaking I would agree with this. But it might be a bit problematic for a new player. Holding out against France isn't too easy (although it mostly just camping the mountains) and being on the border of the HRE and France (or right next to Austria for that matter) can be tricky. There's also not that much expansion room either...

    So I think Scandinavia is the better choice.

    So, I have been very busy with stuff in these days since the session and I haven't had an opportunity to even browse the web, but I do now!

    Anyway, Aragon AAR:
    (Or what I kind of remember)

    So the first main thing was the war against France with my good ally Burgundy, it was going well and Castile was draining their troops in that war, but then they did a white peace and all that effort was down the drain, and after that war ended I took a prestige hit and I lost my PU with Naples.

    After a moment of recovering, I started up a quick war to restore the PU, which was easy and I got that sorted out.

    Now I don't quite remember if Castile invaded me or I invaded them, but I went to war with them also, but I wasn't the only one fighting against them, I got help from Portugal and England also.
    In the end, it was a success and I took some provinces and made them release Galicia.

    So when the session ended, I came out on top, which is always nice ^.^

    I welcome a Portuguese alliance and as a good will token I won't interfere if you decide to take Galicia, but I hope that we can cooperate in a war together, against Castile.

    Don't forget to do you back alley dealings and diplomatic almost but not yet faux pas before tomorrow. For those that want to play nice though, the Dai Viet fun house mansion always has a spot reserved just for you...

    I will be away from the computer for most of the night, but I'm worried about the AI screwing up and picking the wrong idea group (meaning I won't be able to really do anything for several more sessions), so I will be there at the start and play for as long as I can, and then I'll stay in the game and check my computer whenever I have time. I'm fairly certain that being in the game and doing nothing can't be much worse than letting the AI play. :P

    This means I can host if needed, but it might be a bit slow with rehosting and such. But if it's as stable as last week, that shouldn't be a problem.

    You could also ask Cei or Waffly if either of them is around.

    Well it was actually Laldy playing as them for a single session, right? So they are probably in good shape. Think he's gonna be away for the next few sessions though, so they are totally fair game.

    They haven't been set to peacefull so they should provide good sport. With Europe being busy playing with the BBB etc they probably end up expanding instead of shrinking

    Big Blue Blob: France, named after it's tendency to expand massively in previous paradox titles.

    Not going to be going any where until after the 18th. You don't seriously think I would be out of the country for the Referendum vote?
