I have to say I'm impressed by the moxie of an illegal paper writing scam having an actual illiterate spam forums for them.

The Shieldian Embassy to the King of Apilonia had been under the same ambassador for the past thirteen years, an unmatched tenure enabled by the crassest of political pragmatism. His Excellency the Viscount of Haldsborough had been appointed by the last High King of the Shield. When the revolution c...

Interesting! A Balkanized France plays right into Shieldian ambitions in early modern history. Smaller states, presumably charting their own colonial course, make it easier to play one side against the other. Presumably, the Shieldian Empire would play one faction off another (sometimes successfully...

To start with military matters, you are at least in a bit better shape than I am. I'll admit I haven't done a deep dive into prototypes and abandoned designs, but so far as I can determine Portugal's domestic defense industry appears to consist of: -- Licensed production of foreign APCs, assault rif...

An interesting idea: since we're looking at a fractured Ezpanna (also, glad to have that name in case I need it!) until the reformation, perhaps it would be best to regard the Grand Empire between Shadoran's ascendancy and the Reformation (~100 years by my count) as a expy of the Holy Roman Empire? ...

The Coming Storm (AMW)

The Shield It was raining again in the capital, in the half-hearted piddle that was all the Shield could ever manage. Nicodemo Ranalte, Hero of the Revolution and President of the Republic, watched the dreary streets slide by out the window of his Westerton Jackrabbit. Just a day back, he had been ...

E-P, if you're looking for someone to play the role of William of orange financing coalitions against the Sun King, the Shield is looking for a way to blow through a bunch of money and exhaust itself in the seventeenth century! In other news, I'd like to finalize my claims. Hopefully the Caribbean A...

I'm perfectly fine with TCB's proposed changes, and would have no problems relinquishing the rest of Belarus as long as you take Bryansk oblast as well. I don't think I could take the map's look otherwise. ;) And hey, everyone loves a long, narrow country, right? That would leave us with ~107,828,89...

I will honestly say that I had not read the last few posts in the thread having focused on the initial posts. thus I did not realise I was making a rival claim until the application was already made.

Also, if he would like to stay in Europe, I'd be willing to pull the Shield out of the Czech Republic and Poland (except Podlaskie, since I want to keep a WoS border). I know the Baltic and central Europe isn't exactly the French Riviera, but it's something. ;)

Super late responding to TCB's excellent post. The Jaizar is indeed the Shieldian name for the Volga. The River Mans is their name for the Dnister, and the Daldan is the Dnieper. Certainly, any animosity from Gandvik is matched by the Shieldian state, which sees itself as an embattled state on the v...

I had thought that, in the discussion with LRR, most of Belarus (all except Vitebsk) and the Russian oblast of Bryansk went to the Shield. I might be misremembering, or or he might have changed his mind -- either of which is fine with me! :)
