Introduction and Poll

I've got most of a summer to do things with and I feel like liveblogging something. June got me addicted to EU 3, so there we go. Since screenshot L Ps are kind of clumsy here, this is going to be a video liveblog.

But before I start, I need you guys to tell me what country I should be. Because there are a LOT of countries in the game, I'll narrow it down to this list:

  • Any of the native tribes (Iroquois, Huron, Shawnee, Cherokee, Creek, Aztec, Zapotec, Maya, Inca, Chimu).
  • Any country that can unify with its neighbors into a larger country. I won't enumerate this just yet because there's a lot of them, but the possible unifications are: Great Britain, Spain, Italy, Scandinavia, Germany, Hindustan (India), Ireland, Japan, the Mughal Empire, the Netherlands, or Russia.
  • And any other country that you can argue for convinctingly. It will help your argument a lot if that has some kind of obvious goal. I'm not going to enumerate this because I'm not familiar with all the countries in the game, but to give an example of what I'm talking about, Byzantium can attempt to get all its lost territory back from the Ottomans.

EDIT: I realized I didn't originally post when the voting would close. A week seems excessive, but I want to give people time to vote, so this is going to close the midnight after July 5th if nobody's voted recently.

EDIT 2: Now I've realized quite how boring a video of EU 3 is (and that you can in fact embed screenshots here), ignore that line up there that says this is going to be a video LP.

Japaaaaaaaaan! I've never actually managed to unite that damn place, it'd be nice to see someone pull it off. Since Divine Wind made it harder to play Japan (no more roflstomping Korea right at the start) I want to see you try that kind of challenge!

Well, that's one vote. If I play Japan I'll probably play clan Taira.

Aztec, because awesome architecture.

A native tribe. Wait until the Europeans arrive, modernize, and make yourself a Great Power.

And please, World Conquests are boring.

So, looking like Aztec, unless we get two more votes for Japan. Or three votes for something else.

But as a bone to Five_X, if I play Aztec, one of my goals is going to be to take over Japan.

Heh, cool. My goal as Hindustan (pretty much the only faction I play as a lot) tends to be a sort of "reverse colonization" where I basically do what they European powers did to Africa/Asia/North America, except to Europe. It's fun to make odd, ahistorical goals like that.

One of the best parts in PrawnStar's famous Iroquois AAR is when he tried to colonize Europe.

Then it turns into a WC and gets boring.

So, looking like it's gonna be the Aztecs.

Anybody wanna vote for someone else, or do the Aztecs have it?
