This session for Byzantium:
Phase I was spent swatting Austrian vassals and continually forcing the Austrians away from war-winning strategies. Unfortunately for my allies, I had been at war for too long and underestimated Russia's abilities to keep making a comeback against military collapse. Byzantium peaced out with Austria for a mere 100 ducats (on a bankrupt economy, due to Timurid tribute) in preparation for a campaign against the Red Horde. With hindsight, Byzantium could've stayed in the war indefinitely and still made huge gains in Asia Minor had it simply stuck to forcing Austrian soldiers back to the Austrian Duchy. Sadly, a mistake was made and peace did happen.
Phase II was spent beating down the Golden Horde and then a freshly forged Mughal state. Forming the Mughals (especially with their never-ending supply of amazing rulers) seemed to be a terrifying thing, but it actually forced the former Red Horde into bankruptcy and it collapsed on the western edge of its empire against the might of Byzanitum, forever losing its presence there. The Koyunlu hordes were also punished and beat down during this period and the Mamluks were beat to a pulp, bet left alive to keep the Spanish at bay.
Phase III involved peacefully vassalizing Georgia, raising a larger navy, fixing army defects, and war against the barbarian pretenders. Despite our abandonment of the Venetian Coalition, the Republic of Venice sought Byzantine friendship and this was granted. Both the Empire and the Venetian Republic had a common border in the Balkans and had similar interests: Italy and the islands near it. In exchange for Byzantine support, Venice would give land concessions to us. So, some 50,000 Turkic soldiers under the Imperial banner were deployed west to support the fair Venetians. The true power of Byzantium was in its advanced forces of Azab and Muslim Cavalry formations, which finally replaced all of the former army units (a big oversight on my part from the last war) and the naval power to support it. Byzantium held the largest Mediterranean navy and the largest number of total ships period, securing a temporary advantage for itself while pursuing regional goals there. During the war against the Swiss despots of Lombardy, all of Switzerland was occupied and Portugese soldiers were defeated. The Empire and Venice then decided to crush the Portugese for their insolence (not even Spain dared march against the two powers) and some 140 combined ships were deployed against the Portugese. Malta and Sardinia were taken from them and four carracks were lost to the victorious alliance, concluding the war.
PS -- Regencies plague the Empire.
My successful subjugation of the GH had to be put on hold due to around 70k rebels popping up literally everywhere and for every reason. Russians in Russia, Tartars, Estonians, etc. etc.
War in the West was concluded after our initial storming of Prussia came to a halt due to Austrian steel. Poor Hansa could no be saved, and the situation began to look even bleaker after our Orthodox brothers peaced out. White Peace was accepted on the third overture, before demands were made.
Let it be known that Russia has infinite men, and incredible resilience to WE, but not enough income to support a large army.

Proud Nerdimus Maximus of the Trench Coat Mafia.
Here you go, DA SAVE (props to rickie for the name):
''Holy hell that Scythe is overpowerd! Death should be nerfed!''
I appreciate your effort Ynen, but .... 4shared. Seriously? What is wrong with uploading to the forum as an attachment (in a .rar or .zip folder)?
Other then the forum, gamefront is good for uploading files. Hell even rapid share is better, if its still around. Both do not require any sign up.
Burgundy edits needed:
Stability changed to +2
Inflation changed to 2%
Infamy changed to 10.0 (or less)
Second National idea removed (so I can pick the right one when the session starts)
These are just numbers that I think are fair, considering the current situation and what would have been, if I was playing and not to AI.
Thats all for now, I think.
A slider change or two might be needed.
Also is Apple still playing Hansa?

Give a man a fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of the day.
Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
OooooK then. Don't worry about the infamy.
What is up with Lorraine I had them vassalised before, now I am fighting them again?
Inflation could actually go to 1% since the save has burgundy at 2.4% (iirc).
A slider more towards centralisation.
What about legitimacy? Seems Burgundy lost a war somewhere and the legitimacy is paying for that (along with losing Lorraine I assume).
Along with the stability change and the 2nd NI removed, that is all.
Also quite shocking to see Venice has trade rights all in mah grill (So I could use some diplomats as well ).
