My Discord server is dead, I've been defamed on NS, my father is sick (and my mother is blaming me for it), and I've failed the exams.
And now some people on NS has a scheme against me. (You know who you are, don’t let me publicize you)

I hate it. The AI is enraging me. And yet I can't stop playing it. I can't tell if it's because a part of me still enjoys the game at its core or if my enjoyment depends on/is fueled by the hate.

The light of the Buddha has almost completely spread to the godless Welsh. After them, the Irish.

Meanwhile the Aztec threat has grown in continental Europe, but luckily, they don't seem to have been paying any attention to Britannia at the moment. Providing me the time and means to prepare a solid defense.

For some reason, I noticed that my character isn't the same dynasty as her mother, despite me being 100% sure that I had a matrilineal marriage. My current queen seems to be a member of one of my dynasty's cadet branches, something that I thought would've triggered a game-over. But instead, she's inherited everything (including dynasty prestige). :blink:

Finally got a good open as Dithsmarchen, annexed Hosltein and took 2 danish provinces. Now i'll develop and wait for the infamy to burn off before seizing the rest of the Danish provinces, then turn my attention south. Aiming for Denmark, Westphalia, Netherlands. If there's time after that, maybe try and unite Germany as a peasant republic.

Government goals;

Peasant Republic:
A governmental form where peasant communities hold the power themselves and elect rulers from among their leaders.

Republicanism:
This Republic has made itself a guardian of Republican ideals, citizen power and everyone working together for the common good.

Short Term Limits:
Long terms make rulers reckless and the very idea that someone would rule for a long time is contrary to the very idea of a republic. Let us reform our election system to ensure better accountability from our elected officials.

Union of States:
Rather than one unified state our country has grown from a large number of states integrated into one confederacy. As our administration grows and evolves we must not infringe on the rights of the member states, doing so would trample on the very principles of our existence.

Parliamentarism:
It is time we separate the head of government from the head of state and give the legislative assemblies of the land a larger share in the day to day rule of our state.

Devolution:
No single person can rule a country as big and complex as ours. Collecting such powers in the hand of one ruler is also contrary to the Republican ideals of our ancestors. Decentralization and Devolution is how we can best remain able to dynamically meet the needs of an ever-growing state.
(A shame, the bonus is crap by comparison, but themes.).

Moral Principle:
One of the primary functions of the state is to uphold good and moral values. As our Republic in many ways relies on the good and virtuous behavior of its citizens corruption and sinful behavior must be counteracted and rooted out for the good of the entire country.

Citizenry:
A Republic relies on its citizens to function and so it is only right that each citizen in our state will have the power to vote for who will guide our country. Attaining the privilege of being a citizen will also be a spur for all those under our rule to strive for good conduct.

Universal Suffrage:
Let us open up the availability of important offices to more of those living within our borders so that we have a wider and more representative selection of civil servants.

Reinforce Republican Values:
Safeguarding the Republican values upon which this country has been built is the only way to ensure a successful evolution of our state.

I disagree. There are better features they could have added, like removing that god-awful imperial elective system for Byzantium (or at least not making mandatory).

Eh.

I'd be fine with primogeniture which devolves into mandatory imperial elective if you get a regency or have a mad king or some other kind of stuff.
