  1. Year: 1503 (turn 435)

    Jolly old England decided to do some New World colonization, the hard way. By fighting natives. Our first target is the Creek.

    It.. does not go well. After sending 2400 men to die across the Atlantic, I settle for taking Tallahassee, both allowing access to other tribes and depriving the Creek a port province. It should also be noted that England is facing some serous inflation (of about 1.3%) so we buy farms and ports, as well as build more armies because the more money going to maintenance means the less money I make per turn. GENIUS.

    In 1507, I call France into a war against Brittany. It wasn't too hard taking her territory in Northwest France, however, she appeared to have colonized 3 provinces in South America, and 2 tiny islands off the eastern coast of Madagascar. But I didn't know this until 10 turns later.

    In 1511, Norway and 3 other tribal nations declare war on me. I chiefly focused on the Norwegian front and peaced out with the others in 3 turns.

    After some easily conquered islands of the coast of Scotland, capturing Iceland, and annexing Norway, we end this chapter in 1514.


  2. Between the last chapter and this one there were 20 years of relative quiet and stability. This chapter picks up in 1490(turn 340).

    I'm in a conundrum: Do I side with Castile and eat tiny!France? Or do I side with my vassal and declare on Castile. Well I put it off for a few months until I kicked Castile from the alliance. So that is just what I did.

    Also Castile had some issues with Tunis and a separate minor. I reached technology 0.6 in June 1492

    After a year and a half of flinging men into Castilian occupied lands and attempting to unsiege France, Aragon declares on ME. So now I'm at war with Castile, AND Aragon. I had sieged most of Castile down so fighting Aragon wasn't too terrible.

    6 years into the Second Franco-Castillian War.
    Individually, both I and France are better off than Castile. That tiny minor form earlier? Yea, that was a Native American tribe who sieged down most of the lower Iberian peninsula. I of course, grabbed Gibraltar.

    The Aragonese-Anglo War is much more successful with a full occupation in 5 and a half years.
    Not long after, France and I peaced Castile out taking Andorra and giving France her former territory back. As for Aragon. All of her Mediterranean holdings and most of her Iberian territory were taken by France and I, leaving Aragon as a 3 province minor. I suspect in 12 years or so, that France and Castile will be at it again.


  3. So here we are in 1462. Castile decides to call me into a war against Portugal. 1727635648_Screenshot_20190506-191226_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.3ba59b0cf4dba66ddb177dc082bce83e.jpg

    It goes well. Then Grenada of all people declare on me. So after finishing up with Portugal we smash the shit out of Grenada, and I take the province across the Strait of Gibraltar. 1377811611_Screenshot_20190506-192410_AgeofCivilizationsII.thumb.jpg.1354222fe026f9a2d72f289ec0b9c963.jpg

    Between 1469 and 1470 I take out the rest of the Irish Minors.

    Because I like France, and Burgundy is a wanker. I pay Burgundy to declare on France and we begin French expansion into Europe.

  4. The 41 points are dolled out below.

    Starting in 1440, Richard begins building markets, farms and a library to increase income. In 1444 we began our Irish Unification Wars, with our opening move against Osraige in 1444.

    In 1448 I allied Castile, a major power on the Iberian Peninsula. I was lucky that Morocco declared before. I did NOT want to deal with a war against Morocco. In 1451, Castile and I joint declared against France. After 3 years of conflict, we peaced out in 14541157922935_Screenshot_20190506-155517_Age_of_Civilizations_II1.thumb.jpg.3487e57da1758e3e0dbda960d46b2384.jpg1595243650_Screenshot_20190506-160659_Age_of_Civilizations_II1.thumb.jpg.6e541d5b16d44952634b1b02f6b41fd2.jpg2023268827_Screenshot_20190506-160720_Age_of_Civilizations_II1.thumb.jpg.68dc5ca42645516d9b66273b5dbc177e.jpg

    Castile gained 8 Provinces, I gained Paris and I vassalized France. In 1455 I annexed Thomond, and in 1458 I annexed Desmond and Munster in two separate war declarations.  I retook Belfast and conquered Ulster in 1459.

  5. According to @Vis Tactius no one does AARs. Or at least no one does them seriously so I guess it's up to me. 🙂

    I have set some very interesting goals for this campaign beginning in 1440 and ending in 1821, or basically the EUIV timeline.

    1. Unite the British Isles by 1707

    2. Colonize the eastern seaboard by 1600

    3. Turn the map into the Vicky 2 English Colonial map by colonizing the areas shown in the attached image. 

    Optional Goals

    1. Reverse Hundred Years War: conquer France and get Paris. With or without vassalizing the rest of France. 

    2. Conquer Iberia and Scandinavia 

    3. Become a Northern European hegemony.

  6. Update M.1.1
    -Custom Civs added(minus Texas like a boss) along with an attempt at making the custom flags.

    -Russia now in Alaska

    -Colors reflect actual map colors

    -Added European Union, which holds Maryland, Delaware,  the Eastern Virginian provinces of Richmond and Alexandria, along with Atlantic City, Philadelphia and Harrisburg

    -Finagled with tech levels with the EU being the highest
