This is cool (even if Lovecraft's New England continues to be the stupidest thing ever), but the Zalgo text is somewhat broken. I think the transition from the Old Country messed it up?I've played a bit of the Kaiserredux submod for Kaiserreich and it's got me wondering how grimdark you could possibly go with a Kaiserreich/Kaiserredux game.
i dont know if this is deliberate but i am distinctly spooked by the apparent absence of judaismFactions in the European First Estate
Catholic Force: When the Congress of Vienna transformed itself into a supranational entity bent on consistently outvoting the Third Estate (and preventing the Fourth Estate from appropriating a constitutional role), I don't think they expected the decades-long domination of the First by the relatively progressive Catholic Action movement. They might have been even more surprised to see the old edifice come crashing down amid incredible investigations into corruption (and worse) and the rebirth of the Catholic sector in the image of the only-slightly-less-malign Cardinal Berlusconi. But there we go, that's the European Union for you.
Socialist Party: Still abstaining in the First and Second Estates, which at least makes for fewer difficulties in forming governments which have a majority in two out of the three houses. If they ever come back in, I can confidently predict an absolute shipload of 'War of the 256th Coalition' jokes.
Churches Together in Strasbourg: The Protestant mainstream. Over recent decades, the differences between the Calvinists and Lutherans have subsided, to the extent that they are perfectly happy to follow the leadership of Archbishop Welby in relatively-gleaming cohorts. The CTS, admittedly, is essentially a machine for manufacturing consensus for Berlusconi's initiatives while making ineffectual noises about liberalism or social reform (the recent campaign on payday lenders was the dampest squib I have ever seen), but at least you only have to read one press release now, as opposed to half a dozen in the old days. In current news: rumours of a Methodist-Waldensian walkout have been greatly exaggerated.
Orthodox Alliance: They've finally won the right to put some icons up in their caucus room. Surely seeing 200 years of sidelining would have given the Greeks some pause for thought before they jumped out of the Ottoman Currency Union and into the fire of Europe?
Evangelical Rally: The colonisation of the Americas was one of the gravest mistakes ever committed by humanity - but let's not blame the megachurches too much for the worst players in European politics. After all, the Dutch and the Ulstermen have been consistently electing these people since time immemorial, and Reverend Farage is very much a product of his environment. In breaking news, the European Union is still the manifestation of the Antichrist.
Christian Left: Cardinal Renzi's merry little band have been trying to detach some radicals from the Protestant pillars, chiefly Wesleyans and Anglicans, but any fool could tell you that a cross-pillar party of the left is never going to happen. Remember the Democrats '65?
Muslim Brotherhood: Yes indeed, it turns out that excluding minority religions from representation for a couple of centuries has the effect of radicalising these communities somewhat.
Anthroposophical Society: It's probably not ideal that these people get into the First Estate by appealing to atheists, leftists, environmentalists and Vague Spiritual People while obfuscating the fact that they believe some quite odd things about the "fifth post-Atlantean epoch" and the withdrawal of the state from things like education and the economy. But with their emphasis on ethical banking, co-operative enterprise and organic farming, they're probably the most benign of the factions represented in the Uppermost House. Which, when you think about it, is a worry.
Thank you very much--as the forum's African history go-to guy, your approval means a lot.Thande was talking about the art of naming and I just want to say Roosevelt Blah is a great name. It tells you straight away who the OTL equivalent is but also what the difference in culture between this surviving maryland and our liberia is by the different Christian name.
Really good quick world building.
