H Onestly, while I'm buying Divine Wind (and possibly the inevitable V Icky 2 expansion) the performance issues with the Clausewitz-era games have been so atrocious that I'm probably staying out of CK 2 (whcih is too bad as it sounds neat)

The Ottomans, 1428. MEIOU mod. Constantly in danger of overextension, it in fact happened during a regency with mediocre ADM in between two ADM 7 Sultans.

I think I like the new building UI for Divine Wind.

Yeah, especially as (unlike the shogunate system, which is essentially a second HRE for Japan) the faction system can be modded into other countries.

I'm also excited about the new horde system.

Unfortunately for the Fatimids, the First Crusade was a rousing success.

I am playing as Nubia. Tripoli has been declaring war on me every few years.

@Penta: That reminds me of a Nubia AAR where the player manages to gain North Africa, Anatolia...

I haven't posted for a while, though. My interest waxes and wanes (except for the Draka, I'll always hate themtongue).

Oh hey! AH.com. I am a member of the website as well. Although my posts are rather infrequent, I do enjoy browsing the site.

This thread?

Actually I see something of a rant on the tvtropes article >_>

I don't imagine my own nations to be as bad as The Draka. Just utterly ruthless in unlimited territorial expansion. In a way that is fair and kind to all loyal subjects.

The TV Tropes page on the Draka, nothing on AH.com.

Woman needed to be at the centre of an antimatter explosion, preferably one that takes out Archona.

I must read The Domination. Then I'll get back to you on that cool

I wonder if it is possible to manipulate the world to one which resembles Nineteen-Eighty-Four...

I don't think ANY nation can possibly be as bad as the Draka, except maybe those in the "Green Antarctica" timeline.

[up]The Japanese/Nazis will kill you. The Draka will rape you, murder your family, steal all your possessions, move you to the other side of the planet, sell you to another Draka who is free to rape you whenever they please, then biologically alter you so you will give birth to a child who is genetically modified to the point where they need instruction, accept it from anyone, actually love their masters and the fact they are slaves. Now, you tell me, which is worse?

Well, I suppose even in the Drakaverse the Samothracians will probably defeat the Snakes eventually.
