I will play as the British first, patriotism.
Then the Russians, I was born there.

Then sort of get round to playing the others, eventually, possibly.

England

Probably Great Britain. For many reasons, civilized, powerful like many others. But to me they seemed the beginners of America. They were the first to colonize America, and set up a stable colony after a large amount of years. But, orgnized. Yet a bit too cocky sometimes. For walking when getting shot at. But that was is a strange way of there tactics, and some what in a code of honor for England:D. I shall see it, that they become the powerful nation above all. I shall sail to France on the Acuron and destroy every enemy in sight!

Russia.

Ill take the city of Konstantin back first. Then maybe agree to Nappys continental system... especially if i can industrialize a lot first ;)

And hopefully britts wont try anything silly, like bombarding the beautiful city of northern venice.

Anyway, stay out of all wars with habsburgs, preussians, anglos or froggies, and just concentrate upon modernising and taking the turk down.


(ps and silly me who thought it was spain/portugal who colonised americas first ;) By close to a century before any anglo came even near to building anything there. Jamestown was founded in 1607, while spain had colonies by 1500, and 1520 aztecs were conquered)

Capt.Jack Aubrey
29th Nov 2004, 02:01
Well it wasn't the 13 colonies, they conquered the caribeans and such. I speak of the 13 colonies on the east coast. Yes I do know spain did colonize America, but did they start our beautiful nation we have today? The spanish were greedy, they only cared for gold. And for the poor Aztecs, who thought that there god was a spanish conquestidor. And then bring them everything they wanted. They never really fought for it until the end. And then another conquestidor took over the Inca. Who lied to him saying he would let him free. So easily tricked by the Spanish. But, I wonder if they will have torries for the British, Maybe not though. But I also wonder if they will add in minor things in the campaign. Such as flooders, maybe riots over taxes, or things like the Boston Tea Party. It would be a cool minor feature.

Model t?

29th Nov 2004, 06:16
Model T was the mass-produced car by Ford at the turn of the century.

I think he meant that as "Are you an American ?" or something of the sort.

I don't prefer any of these Empires. I will most likely take the Empire standing on top of the menu in the game.

I hope we can unlock or atleast mod-in some of the smaller nations. I wouldn't mind playing as the dutch and carving out a little european empire.

I am probably going to be French. Im not French in the slightest, but I just like the idea of commanding troops with strange accents that bayonet you with their noses turned up. =p That and acting like im one of Napoleons generals. Nehehe.

You want French! Ill give you French!


Ainsi, amici de mille, je demanderais qui vous êtes, mais en raison de vos vêtements déchiquetés et du fait que le chateau d'If est de deux milles loin... de what's le point ? Quant * moi, je suis Luigi Vampa, un contrebandier et un voleur. Mes hommes et moi sommes venus * cette île pour enterrer le vivant de notre nombre qui a essayé de garder de l'or volé pour se au lieu de le partager avec ses camarades. Assez intéressant, il y a certains de ses amis plus fidèles qui insistent sur le fait que je lui accorde la pitié. Ce que, naturellement, je ne peux pas faire, ou je perdrais rapidement la commande de l'équipage entier. C'est pourquoi vous êtes une trouvaille si chanceuse

CastusPlebian
29th Nov 2004, 22:50
You want french? Read my Imperial Glory Community post =p. Also Jack.

Thus, something.. of thousand, I would ask that you, but because of your clothing tore and of the fact that the if chateau is of two thousand far... of what's the point? As for me, I am Luigi Vampa, a smuggler and a thief. My men and me came to this island to bury the living of one of our number that tried to keep the loot for himself instead of to divide it with its friends. Rather interesting, there is certain of its more faithful friends that insist on the fact that I grant him pity. That, naturally, I cannot do, or I would quickly lose order within entire crew. This is the reason you are so lucky to find me.

Did you ever see the movie "Le Miserable"? Its really good. And no its not in French, its just based on a french author's book.

But thats, like lacist, lol!!! Ya know racist, lactist. Like c'mon ! French is cool sometimes! If you know how to use it! But yes, it has one thing to do with it, They said french, I will give you french, so we started speaking french. One of the empires are French, so are we really breaking that rule?

Yeah what Jack said in his horrible broken English. =p Hes a shining example that not everyone in this forum knows perfect english. Hah! Anyways...French will be very fun to play, hopefully the units will speak in French when you select and/or order them to move or attack. It would far more immersive than an English speaking frenchman with a french accent.:p

Aye!

Red Coated Green Jackets!?!? Now that is showing some real commitment to the period and a willingness to accept critisizm and redicule right from the beginning!

Good on ya' mates!

I of course will start out as British if only to help set the stage for the NTW Grenadier Guards involvement in IG.

I di salute this effort, but please get uniforms correct we will all be able to adjust to our own units for God's sake.

I'll pick Prussia of course.... and I plan on unifying Germany a lot sooner than history. Oh, and France will be lucky if I only take Alsace and Loraine this time. First order of business though is make an Ally out of Great Britain like Imperial Germany should have done in real life.... a united Anglo-German alliance in the late 19th century would have been unstoppable.... and I'll try to make it work in the early 19th.

That being said...Great Britain, France..heck all of them will be fun to play. Too bad they can't chop up those nasty huge provinces and have the options to play others. Oh well.... onward for Prussian Glory!

Long Live Prussia!

I would pick Austria; my grandparents on my father's side were from the old Austro-Hungarian Empire; from the province of Galicia. My Grandfather served in an artillery regiment although he just missed seeing action in WW I by emigrating to Canada in 1913 after his tour of duty was finished.
