    Coordinating with your allies is always a good use of time. Right now should take a look at the map and try to predict where the best place is to send your army for a favorable outcome in battle. And of course, watch your desmense so you can tell what you need to do in order to keep it in good economic shape. Is that helpful?

    All right, I can't download the save for some reason. While I figure out how to handle that, Zim and Elite Ferret need to decide if they want to fight this online or not. If not, we'll have a poll as to whether it will be a "long" or "short" battle.

    Does this work better?

    I'd prefer to avoid the online mp battle given the major time zone difference and lag issues I always have trying to play TW MP battles. EF?

    Haha, it is indeed, but I have been doing that. ;)

    I meant more on the sibject of my save not working, and me needing to change some files? Or is that taken care of? Also, my treasury. Is my starting army supposed to cost more than my starting treasury? :)

    Well in regards to the first issue, if you've already downloaded the proper names file than things should be fine. As for the second, it is indeed. I've already given the HRE three times as much starting money as normal, and I didn't want to give any more. If it looks like it's going to be too much of a problem after the war is over, we'll deal with it then. The simple fact is the Reich really can't support ten generals this early in the game, although the Civil War should fix that.

    Yes, "der Kaiser". Sadly, when the Kaiser becomes an indirect object (ie Hail to the Kaiser) the "der" then becomes a "dem", thus: "Heil dem Kaiser".

    This is still better than if the same thing happens to a feminine word (ie the Empress) being and indirect object, where "die Kaiserin" then changes to "der Kaiserin" to make the confusion perfect.

    Isn't German fun?

    Gosh I'm glad German is my first language because I sure as hell wouldn't have picked it up otherwise. Much respect to those who do.

    Now get on with the fighting already

    Haha, I read German for five years in school. Had to choose between German, French or Spanish. Man, all these "great" grammatic rules with thousands of exceptions! Gaaarh, so glad I don't have that subject anymore (even though I was pretty good at it, and got the topgrade in it every year).

    Can we get some stories happening? I was going to post one on Andreas a while back, but I never did. I'll try and knock something up soon. Also, I think the saves cycle is taking a bit too long- it should be sped up a little.

    Yes, I agree on both points. At the next Diet session I'll re-propose my Rules Change from last session, I think it would be preferable if orders were submitted and implemented simultaneously rather than one at a time.

    I love writing stories. In fact I have often wondered whether I write stories because I play these games, or whether I play the games as an excuse to write stories....RL is kicking my ass at the moment but I'll get up to speed on some story writing soon.

    Just a quick question, Cecil. When will the Great Saxon Rebellion event be over? When one side is completely defeated? When one side surrenders? When one side has no more settlements? Thanks.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read:

    Andreas Hummel and Vaclav Premyslid have sided with the Kaiser, so they have essentially agreed to peace. Ortwinus Raspe is captured, so if he does not agree to peace Prince Henry can simply execute him. That leaves Magnus von Saxony and Theodericus der Bartige.

    Theodericus der Bartige has surrendered to the Kaiser, if I am not mistaken.

    Bartige has formally surrendered to me. I need to fire out a bunch of PMs and take the save, probably within a couple of hours.

    That's correct, though I probably should've posted something about it here. I blame reality for getting in the way.

    Hey guys, my laptop got stolen last night so my activity will be limited at best. I'll probably still be able to RP but most likely will not be able to take my turns. Therefore, I'm requesting that a fellow loyalist take the save for me, at least this time.

    If I find that I can't continue playing, I'll drop out, but I only want to do that as a last resort.
