    Anything by Korpiklaani that isn't about alcohol is probably about the Kalevala. Anything by Turisas that isn't about alcohol is probably about the Varangian Guard.

    Tyr's cover of Regin Smiður is fantastic.

    Honestly, this is a relatively recent phenomenon for me. My limit is folk metal stuff like the examples you see above because I like how closely it ties...

    So I remain America, meaning I get to do diddly squat for the next two years, and Finland, which is probably slightly more pressing.

    I'll try to get on that asap but I have a lot of homework to do...

    Re: [BAW 2.0] Chapter III

    I was only curious. Obviously it's totally fine for you to use your own story for your own purposes outside the game. :P

    Wait wait, so what did the decision with Germany end up being? These last few days have been rather busy so I apologize for not being able to follow up earlier.

    Can confirm, haven't found a song by Korpiklaani that I didn't like.

    This one is a favorite lately:

    You may also try Turisas. They're another Finnish folk metal band but most of...
  8. Re: No Peace in Our Time - the 1939 World War II IH

    I guess I don't mind playing Germany in a pinch if somebody is willing to take up the US. I always figured playing one Allied and one semi-Axis power was a bit of a conflict of interest anyway.

    Greek Islands in the Aegean count as one province except for Crete which should be its own province. All Islands in the Italian Dodecanese (so, like, Rhodes and a few others) are one province. That...
  11. Re: No Peace in Our Time - the 1939 World War II IH

    Whatever you can contribute. Anything helps but don't overextend yourself.

    I designed the econ map with the idea in mind that island chains make up provinces. It makes zero sense for a single...

    No special units that I recall hearing about. You may be thinking about special abilities for each nation though.

    I'm betting on it going about as well as it went historically for them.

    Bulgaria in general didn't really want to get involved, and stayed out of the war until 1940 when Germany basically forced them to give military access (putting this in EU4 terms here :P) and to join...
  16. Re: No Peace in Our Time - the 1939 World War II IH

    This. Most of the Southeastern European countries were monarchies (at least nominally in the case of Hungary) who had communist revolutionaries funded by the Soviets just after the war. One of the...

    Romania has lots of oil, I drew it on the map myself. Check around Iasi in Moldavia.
  18. Re: No Peace in Our Time - the 1939 World War II IH

    That would be ideal, but it would be hard to come by statistics for that.
  19. Re: No Peace in Our Time - the 1939 World War II IH

    This is an important question. Also, what about oil? Finland doesn't have any oil but according to my OOB (WHICH WILL BE DONE WHEN I'M GOOD AND READY, FRED) I should have one tank division, which...

    Do we have any kind of an espionage system in place?
  23. Re: No Peace in Our Time - the 1939 World War II IH

    This is also the point I'm trying to make. It's not just a measure of GDP or even industrial output, it's more an assessment of how much the province can contribute to military forces (since IH has...
  24. Re: No Peace in Our Time - the 1939 World War II IH

    I only did what I was told to do, again. I was told to give Russia lots of green provinces everywhere but Siberia and the far north to reflect Stalin's industrialization efforts, so I did.

    We use dice-rolls in combat to make decisions, don't we? Including decisions for when units retreat? Just modify the numbers. Say rolling certain numbers in one of those cases results in a retreat,...

    I like this better. Conquering land does not necessarily lead to better-quality troops, but higher morale makes a ton of sense.

    I'm going to be sneaky about it and say that we should leave it as-is, only because you would be in a pretty :wub: position in economic terms. It's definitely too late to redesign that.
  34. Re: No Peace in Our Time - the 1939 World War II IH

    I misread Yan'an as Ya'an. Also mistook Shanxi for Sichuan. :| Chinese is hard.

    If it's not too big of a deal I'll leave it as is, but I'll also leave it up to Fred since he's controlling them.
