    In my Imago Dei Venice game, I've just sundered Britain. What a good feeling...there is the Duchy of Northumbria (including lancashire), the Principality of Wales (including cornwall), and the Kingdom of Scotland. Pics later. I'll be diplo-annexing naples later and uniting all Italians...

    I never managed to entirely conquer Iberia. I had North Italy, all islands in the western med including Sicily, southern Italy, North and South Africa, all of the Carribbean, all of South America, every Atlantic island, central America, southern North America and the Phillipines.

    Usually, as an iberian nation. When I attack someone like Aragon i just force vassalize them, take some territory if i can, and in 10 years diplo annex. They have too many colonies and overseas territory to just conquer normally.

    That is usually the best way to take control of a nations territory imo.

    Wow your badbay is INSANE. With England I had more than that but controlled all of france and non-iberian europe up to poland, lol.

    I can see why you didn't diplo annex aragon. If you did take Barcelona you would of had the option of forming spain. Your flag and everything would change and you would be Spain but with Portuguese as your primary culture.

    I have Aragon in the multiplayer game, lol. I can see it will be interesting.

    Started a new campaign in 1.2.1 as Mecklenburg and it was alot harder than 1.1. But in 1490 something I united Germany and it boosted my yearly income from 40 to 140 I gained core on all provinces I owned but also many of my neighbours so I got a lot of CB's to use.

    Since my BB is just under the limit I will start colonizing and build up an navy 'till it gets down a bit before I can carry on with Europe.

    The other large empires are, France like always (they attacked poor Denmark with 2 armies, each of them consiting of 35k soldiers), Austria, that has beaten the Ottomans and Lithanuia that has taken all of Novgorod.

    my German Empire; 1598.

    http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/8...neuropehz4.jpg

    i diplo annexed lithuania who were pretty damn large, poland still refuse diplo annex though

    killed off the ottomans, my new enemies are kazan and persia now - im making a land route to india and nobody will stop me! Although i may have to kill poland if they continue rejecting my diploannexing.

    I have few colonial possessions as i was attempting this campaign to be european only - no colonies! but i gained some from a few wars so i own most of the carribean and a couple of provinces in s.america.

    I still want to kill france, i have a lot of soldiers on that front incase of funny business, unfortunately i cant really shift fronts like i used to as im far too big and it takes an age for the soldiers to get from east to west as a result. Ill just have to spam up some more soldiers before i make my attacks - but east is the way im looking not west.

    edit: just killed little corfu, took some italian provinces from sicily, killed some other faction (kazan i think) and crimea, attacked the mamluks (deus vult is so nice - persia is next ) poland finally accepted annexation, denmark and sweden are vassals too and will be annexed in a few years when it becomes available.

    http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/7...ast1605bh9.jpg

    im gonna go 2 ways, north africa and into asia im moving the 40 odd thousand men i have in the est now onto a front with persia - i may need to change an idea though as i dont have the new world idea and as a result cant recruit conquistors so i cant see the terra

    i adjusted the bb points to -1 ratherthan -0.1 as -0.1 is far too intolerant.

    (dunno if anyone else had theirs at -0.1, but basically it means ur rep is destroyed extremely fast..)

    im not even that expansionist, i mostly dec with cassus and in defence of allies etc - but it was getting repetitive being decced by everyone all the time (eventhough i could beat them) - it just makesthe game irritating and boring and also limits diplomacy too much.

    BTW can anybody who plays MM give me tips on how to survive as Morea? I keep either getting to much badboy and sooner or later the Ottomans come down and lay the smack down on my puny kingdom.

    A few tiny countries DoW you early on yeah? If it's albania, defeat their invading force, invade and vassalize them. If anyone with greek pops DoW's you, like naxos, gobble them up. Crete has a tendency to break away as well. Avoid Rhodes...the ottomans can simply march across the straights, and they generally make a senselessly huge navy (of galleys...). If you've lasted that long, go for cyprus. Then...wait for the turn of the century. Ottomans will lose their cores on you (and likewise you will lose the ability to train their doubtlessly superior infantry, probably janissaries), and hopefully, they aren't in one of those games where they're invading russia and france.

    As for athens, they start as your vassal, just annex them when you get the chance.

    I rarely having people non stop DOWing me as well if they have decent relations, in tw they get mad for no reason. On this they have to have reason to be angry with you.

    Because of that with Ottomans you could TRY to get positive relations with them and put your tolerance for islam all the way up. Try to give them permission to cross into your territory as well. That always seems to stop them from DOWing me.

    I'm still playing Burgundy in Imago Dei. My empire has expanded considerably:







    My vassals currently are: Mecklenburg, Bohemia, and Saxony.

    After my huge war with France -- shown here:


    -- , from which I gained a couple of provinces and France's vassalization, I kept the French as a vassal awhile. During this period, I was involved in a few other wars, gaining German and Italian provinces. The major war was that with Austria. I can't even recall how it started, but I mobilized quite a few huge armies (having a lot of money on hand is great :wink: ) and ran them over. Up to this point, Austria had been my main rival -- really my only one in western/central Europe. So, I ultimately took almost all of Austria's provinces north of Hungary. Before settling with Austria, I conquered most of Saxony -- enough to keep one province and force its vassalization. With Saxony out, I finished off the Austrian armies in the area. I settled for a couple of provinces and Austria's releasing of Bohemia (which I soon vassalized).

    Basically, this significantly marginalized Austria as a power in the region.

    A little later, I decided to demand France's annexation, which was surprisingly accepted. I immediately gained what probably amounts to almost as many provinces as I already had. Right now, I'm just solidifying my hold over all of this land and waiting for my huge reputation to dissipate somewhat. I also annexed Hamburg around that time, gaining provinces in northern Germany and Denmark.

    My Polish Empire at 1493.



    I've primarily been in war with Lithuania so far. The first one lasted 4 years, and the second 12 years. Lithuania has been left in bad shape, as can be seen in the picture, with rebellions everywhere.

    When my truce with them expires I will launch another offensive at them and try to gain some more lands. After that I will probably attack Brandenburg. They have some allies last time I checked, so it should be a bit hard winning against them.
