Let me show you how it's done.

573, some accidental, but most are from memory. Admittedly, I have had some practice with this thing, and playing Paradox games certainly helps. :p


...
And as soon as I finished, I immediately start noticing things I forgot, such as Hell, Norway (memorable entirely for its interesting name).

Tip for using it: choose the specific country. If you just type "Brest" for "Any Country", it will give you Brest, Belarus, but if you choose France it will give you the Brest located in Brittany.

Another example is Viborg, Denmark; if you have "Any Country" selected it will simply give you the Vyborg in Russia.

"somewhere in Belarus"

I got to 233 before I started cheating too much.

You get one guess as to which country's geography and history I like learning about the most.

I guessed on a lot of them, which explains a lot of the itty bitty little places in England, and I'm disappointed with myself for how much I blanked on Ireland, France, Germany, and Ireland, though I feel somewhat cheated because a lot of cities that I know exist and even googled afterwards would simply refuse to be entered.

Edit: I got two Irish places that Huskar didn't. I am now officially more Irish than he is. Nevermind the dozen other places that he got that I didn't, those aren't important.

All this only makes me even more annoyed that they are excluding all of that region from the next CK game as well.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

A Rundown of my Castille EU4 campaign:
- today was the longest run I did, from 1455-1485. 30 years and sitting my ass down for 30 minutes. Was it worth it?
- I completed several missions, including the one that gave me a casus belli for Granada conquest
- I fucked Granada up because it was too easy
- I got some rebels later on but I quieted them down. Economy looked jolly, until...
- My ruler died. My heir was only 2 years old and the regency council ruled Castille. That's the same as asking for a wedgie. Or in this case, a civil war. I was too entitled to do anything so I let the rebels screw me over. I also sided with the Aragonese because I was closer to them I guess?
- spent some time repaying my debts and rebuilding Castille.
- So, where I stopped: Aragon called Navarra and I to war against France & Co(an unspecified nation and Naples). BTW France got fucked by England because they (and Burgundy) lost a LOT of land. We're doing fine at the moment. We're winning and we sieged some bad guys. Heck, even Navarra was having fun.

Also, TIL that my armies automatically went to enemy or rebelling territory during a war. I seriously thought we were supposed to control them ourselves.
