    Eldritch Wars

    [​IMG]

    An alliance that could yet unite the civilized peoples of Vinland was secured in 1702.

    [​IMG]

    Fucking Russians.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, in the land of kebab.

    [​IMG]

    Stupid sheepfuckers will be taught a lesson they will cry much about.

    [​IMG]

    Through naval superiority, Vinland achieves complete dominance over the Isles. At least they didn't have to face those damn Anglos again, for Britannia had no chance against the superior navy of the Hersk.

    [​IMG]

    Sheep shaggers lost all.

    [​IMG]

    DEATH TO RUSSIA! PERKELE PERKUNAS!

    [​IMG]

    Because of losses of transport ships in the many naval battles fought over Europe, Vinland had to build new ones, but they were waiting a while, because they were about to develop new, more modern, better armed and protected transport ships. Once the forces in Britain are shipped to Eastern Europe, those stupid, mongrel Russians who wage war while ITZ knocks their door will learn again why it was Holmgard and not fucking Novgorod. Take a bath of dead Russian.

    [​IMG]

    Russia lost the war, learning a harsh lesson. Finally this conflict was over, and hopefully those stupid Russians wouldn't start more trouble while the Hastur Khaganate is more than willing to wipe them off the map, but considering they are Russians...

    [​IMG]

    Lithuania foolishly decided this was the best time to avenge fallen Nordland and all pagan Germans and Dutch who were mercilessly slaughtered by the Unholy Not-Roman Empire. Some suggest for Fœrer Esben Nansen to tell Lithuania to fuck off, but he cares too much about honor for that.

    [​IMG]

    Some Welsh, Irish and Scotts declared independence and formed a new country in America. A tiny one, but considering how screwed Britannia currently is, they won't have much trouble maintaining such independence. Funnily, the primary exports from this new country are hemp and cannabis in general, which use has grown very popular within certain Caribbean islands. When the diplomat of Vinland went in to negotiate for them to open their center of trade for Vinland, he was immediately assaulted by a hazy environment full of marijuana smoke.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Reports from a battle between the Hastur Khaganate and Bohemia were clearly worrisome. In spite of being outnumbered, the minions of the King in Yellow made the Czech forces run away crying for mercy and babbling incoherently. The conclusions from these report were either that Bohemia was full of white flag raising pussies and incompetent military leadership, or that the Hastur Khaganate conquering the entire Europe was only a matter of time. Unfortunately, it was the latter that was clearly the truth.

    [​IMG]

    After a bloody and long battle against what could be the entire Navy of the Dutch sodomites, once again more transport ships have to be built, while the expeditionary forces of Vinland await in Portugal, which granted military access to Vinland in spite of both having fought a phony war in the past.

    [​IMG]

    The Hersk forces are made of men not gifted by eldritch gods, but they are men with discipline and balls of steel, only the best of the best. The Dagonl'nu threats fall on deaf ears, their diplomats burned as the filthy xenos they are.

    Note: The religious decisions avaiable for Norse give some powerful bonuses, and as you may still remember, the decision to give priority to the worship of Týr within the State Norse religion gives a quite powerful discipline bonus, while Vinland is fully at quality over quantity. Of course, on the other hand, all Norse countries start with few friends and powerful enemies, and Vinland in early game is plagued by severe manpower scarcity.

    [​IMG]

    The Unholy Not-Roman Empire has many rivals, rivals like France, pragmatic enough to agree to give Vinland military access to reach Wurttemberg through their backdoor despite major religious differences.

    [​IMG]

    Any ally of Russia deserves this. The less European country rule the New World, the better for Vinland, which naturally supports independence struggles, openly.

    [​IMG]

    From their collapse as a power, Britannia was forced to concede autonomy to heathens in northern Germany, and although far from the glorious Nordland of past, this Republic of Münster was much more united.

    [​IMG]

    And then, right when the armies of Vinland conquered the throne of the HRE...

    :mhd:

    ITZ!

    [​IMG]

    Oh shit! Right while ITZ comes.

    [​IMG]

    :M

    [​IMG]

    Through superior discipline, the forces of the HRE are crushed when they attempted to defeat the army of Vinland. But there were more of them, and most importantly, stopping the Hastur was more of a priority. However, deep in enemy territory, the expeditionary forces of Vinland within Europe had no choice but to make a stand.

    [​IMG]

    Did you notice that "The Emperor has an hereditary claim to the crown"?

    It seems the Unholy Not-Roman Empire is not so far from becoming a true Empire. Perhaps it was ITZ that propelled them towards such direction that may turn them in a country as powerful as France and as the worst Turk once were.

    Note: I've never seen AI do this in vanilla or Magna Mundi.

    [​IMG]

    A peace treaty with the krauts would be very, very welcome at this point.

    [​IMG]

    They refused to concede anything, but they agreed to a white peace, allowing for the stranded armies of Vinland to finally leave in peace, and head towards the Baltics where they would attempt to stop the forces of ITZ.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    TOO LATE! Lithuania has lost much land to the horrors, their will broken like twig. Yet, the war was not over.

    [​IMG]

    PERKELE!

    There goes Estonia as well.

    [​IMG]

    In the frozen seas of the north, where the Prisoners of Ice may lie, a great battle ensues between the navies of Vinland and of the Hastur Khaganate, led by a vile, inhuman creature as their admiral, whose skills are beyond equal.

    [​IMG]

    Yet, the Eldritch horrors other than Dagonl'nu may be undisputedly victorious with their legions across the land, but in the seas, ironically, Vinland has prevailed over them again! If the wooden wall holds strong, and the portal the Dagonl'nu control is somehow destroyed, there can still be hope for Vinland to prevail, and for the New World to be spared from ITZ.

    [​IMG]

    Attempts at sieges proved to be futile, their legions too large and terrible for Vinland to stand any chance in battle against. Fortunately, the besieging army managed to evacuate soon enough to avoid a confrontation that would be devastating for Vinland.

    [​IMG]

    On the other hand, their isolated territories fell one by one, for Naval Supremacy has been successfully achieved against the hordes. Not much to be proud or happy about, but still, a minor victory that may have halted their advance over Europe for many years.

    [​IMG]

    And finally, in 1714, having little ways to effectively defeat them, Vinland accepted a White Peace, the Eldritch Wars having ended... for now.

    [​IMG]

    Plenty of land lies uncivilized and unexplored, and no matter what happens to Europe, Vinland will Prevail! The victories against the Hastur over the seas may have had little impact, but they were important to prove they are not totally invincible. Meanwhile, the realization a single German Empire may be about to come for Wurttemberg managed the dream of many dynasties of becoming hereditary Emperors of most of German lands means a new power will change the balance of power in Central Europe much before ITZ reaches it. The world has truly changed much in the beginning of this 18th Century.

    Note: The Mongol Khaganate changed tag twice, first to Qing, and then to Mughal Empire

    :M

    I'll have that fixed in the next version of the mod

    Is it "Gangbang on Lithuania" Decade or something? Its like a train of gangrape, man. First russians and british, then germans, then eldritch turko-tatars! Hitmen can't get a break!

    :bro: :mhd:

    Can you get military acess with Mega-Kebab or someone else near the black sea? Those isolated territories there look like easy prey.

    HRE unifying is good for you.

    Can't wait 'til Hasturians finally fight the French. Can the Big Blue Blob SAVE THE WORLD?

    When the worst turk came in(from Eastern Europe rather than Anatolia this time), they managed to avoid total defeat, and immediately after the wars with the worst turk, the King of Hungary petitioned for what was left of Hungary to join the Holy Roman Empire. Hungary is a full member of the HRE by 1453 and can even try to become the Emperor.

    That is far from over. Once a country starts losing badly, it's common for the AI to go in to grab slices while they can, just like what happened with Poland in late 18th Century. Of course Lithuania was idiotic to drag themselves into constant wars with a Holy Roman Empire far more united than the historical one ever was as well, other than minor wars between Catholics and Protestants that never were as massive as the 30-year War.

    Considering Castille pretty much halted their colonial expansion, I decided it's time for Vikings to raid

    :desu:

    ==========================

    Reaching the West Coast

    [​IMG]

    "Let the market settle it"... more like "Let the Jews settle it". Iberia is clearly incompetent with economics.

    [​IMG]

    Close, but fortunately Vinland had a too solid economy to be dragged down by EU bullshit while Castille drowns in Austerity that is only fucking them up even more.

    Vinland never offered refuge to Jews for a good reason. They were always suspicious of them, not in small part because it was from them that the religion that slaughtered many who believed in Odin in the name of their God came.

    [​IMG]

    Things are a bit chaotic in the new colonized areas, but there is little reason for Vinland to want to have Catholic beaners, spics and other mongrels tainting their gloriously Nordic Hersk with the cancer of multikult. Rather, they looked further west, determined to chart and colonize the Pacific coast of Vinland.

    [​IMG]

    Speaking of mongrels, there goes it again. Poor Lithuania.

    [​IMG]

    Trade is the most important segment of the wealthy and prosperous economy of Vinland, and the creation of a National Trade Policy is one first step towards the creation of a National Bank, ran by Neanderthal Nordic Ubermensch rather than Melonhead Jews, naturally, lest it brings more woe than good.

    [​IMG]

    Vinland is clearly becoming more than a country united by the faith in the old gods. Through the last centuries, a very strong set of new values have risen within, the predecessors to nationalism and patriotism, ideas that find a strong breeding ground within the Hersk, of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity as collective rather than individual concepts, of people having a right to be ruled by those of their own culture and nation, such ideas would yet change much in the world, provided ITZ does not bring the end to all first.

    Also, these ideas united the Irish to fight for independence in the Old World.

    A fleet heads into Eastern Europe, while Lithuania becomes more and more weakened.

    [​IMG]

    Yet, the Russians were paying a high price for their struggle. If only the tide of battle could be turned.

    [​IMG]

    Attacked by many opportunistic enemies at the same time, Lithuania folded, broken and despaired as a dying kingdom about to be completely carved by their neighbors, piece by piece. The partitions of Lithuania would live in infamy, specially considering who were among those who seized their clay.

    [​IMG]

    During yet another siege to teach Britannia a lesson because of their stupidity of helping Russia, a sheep driven insane by perhaps too obvious reasons rammed into Esben Nansen as he looked down upon a cliff, and in his advanced age and caught by surprise, the Fœrer was pushed into the abyss. Of course the general public does not need to know that is how the man who wiped the taint of Demokwacy from Vinland died, but rather the official version claims he died by a stray shot from the Welsh fortress they besieged.

    His most loyal second-in-command, Knut Ericsson, was already chosen and clearly appointed as his successor, and the Hersk would no suffer from instability. HEILA ERICSSON!

    [​IMG]

    Sheep shaggers and their sheep killed the Fœrer. Let them learn a lesson!

    [​IMG]

    Or not... time to go for Russia, always these mongols, always. King Vaarna of Finland is right: they should be exterminated.

    [​IMG]

    DEATH TO RUSSIA! PERKELE!

    [​IMG]

    PERKELE PERKELE PERKELE

    The Russian incompetence in warfare is beyond measure, but like a bunch of infinite machete rape gangs, they seem to have an endless supply of cannon fodder. This won't be easy at all.

    [​IMG]

    Retreating was a very idiotic mistake for the armies of Vinland. The Russians were suffering massive casualties, why did they have to retreat? In the retreating, some serious casualties happened, and after that, the expeditionary forces of Vinland had to wait for reinforcements before they could try another offensive against those the Finns hate the most.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    But peace came first, and now they would return to the New World. This was far from the most glorious time in warfare for Vinland, unlike when they crushed legions of HRE forces. Lithuania was pretty much fucked at this point.

    [​IMG]

    Knut Ericsson was an old man when he assumed the position of Fœrer, and his health was frail. He died, and was succeeded by a new dictator, the just above average Sigmund Norheim. The bad thing about the New Order is that incompetents only are ousted from power when they die, or if some plotting is done to remove an incompetent from power, and removing incompetent rulers that way could endanger the stability of the Hersk and even cause a civil war. Fortunately the three first Fœrers have been all decent at least.

    [​IMG]

    The union of Finland with Lithuania was short lasted, but it was a relief, for it finally got Vinland rid from having to try stopping the inevitable. The Hersk has abandoned Europe to their fate now.

    [​IMG]

    Navarra is about to utterly purge Granada, yet the Granadans still control most of BRBR.

    [​IMG]

    The forces of ITZ are a threat beyond measure. Funds have been saved for the construction of massive fortifications in the regions that have a border with the Dagonl'nu, and eventually in the African colonies as well, for such massive fortifications will sooner or later be needed.

    [​IMG]

    For some strange reason, despite being in the same continent as the capital of Vinland, certain newly established settlements were bringing tariffs as if they were overseas colonies.

    Note: I have no idea why. This shouldn't really happen. Of course everything south of Odinhóll is an exclave, which perhaps is the reason for this, but anything in the East Coast and Caribbean is not treated as a colony with tariffs instead of taxes and production income... weird.

    [​IMG]

    Driven by the wealth in diamonds of that region, and supported by a State program, thousands migrate to Africa in spite of Nyarlathotep's machete rape gangs that yearn to conquer the colonies of Vinland. They have been quiet towards Vinland for so long many no longer even think about them.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They have gone much far from the old longships, much much far. Large and mighty ships of the line, still retaining the dragon figurehead and the raven banner of the Viking ships of the past, these powerful and large vessels with two decks filled with fifty or more cannons have replaced the wargalleon as the new Jewels of the Navy of Vinland, and they must manage to teach those English a lesson should they dare to start another war.

    [​IMG]

    The religious wars that have plagued the Germans for so long may be coming to an end, Catholics and Protestants finally waking up to the march of ITZ being greater than their bickering.

    [​IMG]

    Having lost most of Iberia, the Sultan of Granada, like a certain João VI did when Napoleon invaded his country in another space-time continuum, would inadvertently give rise to a new nation as he realized transferring his court to the New World was the only option left after all the crushing defeats they suffered, an option that would put an end to the separatist and indepedence movements as well. Thus, the Sultan of Granada became the King of a new nation rather than the colonial overlord, a nation where in the future The Brazilian Slaughter in the 100% Islamic Grão Pará will say:

    "ALLAHU AKBAR!"

    :M

    [​IMG]

    Even with ITZ, Catholics and Protestants are having a hard time finding peace. Their ways are strange, for pagans, despite worshipping so many different gods, have always been far more ecumenic to each other when compared to Christians.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Rockets, fired both from multiple stacks in a form of artillery developed in Vinland that was recently adapted from a Korean design, and from specialized firearms, were very powerful when properly used, but with a limitation. Using them at point-blank was naturally suicidal because of blast radius, which made them far more deadly for attacking, where an attacking force could simply bombard those defending a position nonstop, while defending ensued only some salvos before the enemy forces got too close to prevent friendly fire. With Vinland naturally having relied on offense as the best defense outside city walls, that was no deal, an immediately these new weapons made their way into the army.

    Note: This one was adapted from the "Tippu Sultan Rocket Infantry Tactics" unit, which is sort of like that, extremely powerful in attack but weak at defense.

    [​IMG]

    HHR! is not amused with the proposal of the protestants. Typical.

    [​IMG]

    When Ahtu Africa sent a warning, Vinland began to immediately fortify the borders, for such warnings oftenly were preludes to a coming declaration of war. The legions of Nyarlathotep are vast and seemingly invincible. It will be only through their ships of the line and a massive blockade against the machete legions that Vinland may stand a chance of not losing South Africa, should they attack.

    [​IMG]

    Maybe once Hastur marches into Brandenburg they will come to a consensus...

    [​IMG]

    The machetes assaulted Portugal, seizing the island of Madeira in a feast of blood, madness and rape, yet this was far from the end of the Congoid Tentaclessex Apocalypse for Portugal. Maybe it was not because of what they lost to Navarra that the Sultanate of Granada decided to make Brazil their new throne, but because of ITZ

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    If only they don't act like chickens and sign a stupid white peace, this could be a potential mean for Lithuania to recover a little, and for Finland to achieve their aims of teaching Russia a lesson.

    But they signed a white peace instead of demanding territories from the defeated Russians...

    [​IMG]

    Rockets were cool, but inflexible for defending because of something called blast radius. When a very prosperous individual found a way to attach a bayonet over a repeating crossbow, a far more mobile and rapid infantry unit was born. New repeating crossbows that can be reloaded very quickly once they run out of ammo thanks to finally reliable detachable magazines that allow for a "tactical reload" or "speed reload" and better refined and more sparingly used rocket and grenade lauching muskets were used by these Skirmishers with great effect, for although not trained for prolonged battles, they were trained to finish battles decisively by delivering massive casualties with their ambushes, and to have the ability to cross large distances faster than slower military units of their time, for mobility was one of their greatest strengths

    Meanwhile, through decades of peace, Vinland finally reached into the Pacific Coast of the New World, but while their first colony in the West Coast was not yet self-sufficient.

    I'm enjoying this LP like a kid.

    Is that doomstack already half strength due to attrition? I don't want to imagine what is their force limit but the AI sucks managing attrition.

    Yeah they do.

    But just like there are ridiculous bonuses, there is also a nasty penalty to these Eldritch powers: Their badboy is always rising, nonstop, no matter what, and the penalties to a high infamy are very severe.

    "Infamy" should also mean something like "how batshit insane this country is to be able to function coherently as a country" for Ahtu Africa and similar. Which means they start insanely powerful and virtually undefeatable, but slowly become less and less able to wage war due to all the penalties their insanely high infamy will bring, including an immense rise in war exhaustion, specially when they stupidly send a huge doomstack to suffer heavy attrition as well.

    tl;dr all Eldritch countries after ITZ start practically invincible, but become growingly self-destructive, rebel-ridden and chaotic with time as they fail their sanity checks.

    kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

    DOOMstack never sounded so ULTIMATE!! Look at that stack, LOOK AT THAT FUCKING STACK!!!

    They get penalties with infamy? Cool! Seems to be a nice way to make a player-controlled Eldritch nation playable, you essentially have to race against time before your nation shudders to a halt under its very insanity and everyone ends up murdering, killing, raving, raping and shouting in joy and abandon. Sounds awesome, until the other joyous guy cuts your three head with a fleshy machete.

    Also, do Eldritch factions fight each other? I don't remember the Mythos monsters being all exactly big buddy-pals, but I got little exposure to it.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Also, Mato Grosso is essentially a far-away swampland acessible by river only. That's farther than Brasilia, its the equivalent of the British Empire changing its capital to some bog in Western Canada, or the potatoland capital being in Mazovia. Maybe they're building a bunker.

    Would't surprise me if the Portuguese did something similar, once ITZ comes to Iberia.

    ITZ just me we're going to see a situation like that WWII/War of Worlds LP you once did, Cassidy? Everyone runs to Amerikwa, bad guys hold most of Eurasia.

    wonder if you could make some events to display the big flight a all-out eldritch invasion would cause.

    This update will have two VERY important issues for you to vote for at its end.

    =======================

    [​IMG]

    Resist the Shadows and never stop sailing

    Shalebridge Cradle Ambience, because Living in this South Africa, the last bastion of mankind in a continent overtaken by Nyarlathotep and the Great Old Ones, is even scarier.

    [​IMG]

    Machetes cleaved into the sizable fortifications of Transkei in a matter of a few days, the legions of Ahtu Africa fighting not as anything resembling a human, but instead as a literal construction of the worst nigger stereotypes combined with Eldritch horrors, raping all along their way. It was inhuman what they have done in the colonies, and there was no chance of stopping them for they were blessed with the powers of the Great Old Ones, and lusted so immensely for blonde white women they charged lines of cannons to get to them. It is said black tentacles are thicker than the tentacles of other kind, so it is better to not even think much of what happened there.

    [​IMG]

    Blessed by Nyarlathotep, Africa seemingly expanded drastically their navy, but they still lacked any real naval tradition, a large fleet of transports brought to the depths by the Navy of Vinland, advancing onward to the bold attempt to blockade this nightmarish horror.

    [​IMG]

    Then, a nasty surprise came up, the fleet of Vinland ambushed by a light fleet while they were barely recovered from the previous battle. Rowed by abominations, the Galleys of Ahtu Africa were far more dangerous than they looked. for once they began boarding the larger and slower Galleons of Vinland, to call fair fighting such abominations would be an understatement. What seemed at first to be an easy blockade turned out into a desperate struggle for survival.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    :kfc:

    :mhd:

    The legions of tentacles and machetes exterminated the entire Navy of Vinland through their Eldritch blessings, not even their powerful ships of the line standing a chance. A dark hour has come, but Vinland shall never surrender, and honor the fallen by overcoming the horrors, no matter what! More than once have the Navy of Vinland risen from the ashes more powerful than ever, and so again it shall be.

    :salute:

    [​IMG]

    The defenders of South Africa may fall, but they will exterminate as many subhuman mutants as they can before their last breath.

    :salute:

    [​IMG]

    Sigmund Norheim was of frail health, and he never recovered from the news of how the entire Navy of his country was utterly annihilated by the forces of ITZ. In 1745, he passed out in despair, fearing Vinland was doomed. He was found hanged under an ash tree in his house's garden, clearly driven to madness and despair by the conflict with Ahtu Africa, and perhaps, by more personal sightings of such horrors. His suicide note claiming not only that Vinland is doomed, but that there are no gods, only a cosmic void of horrors beyond imagination caring nothing about the insignificant mankind, was promptly redacted. The dead tentacles growing out of his mouth and the visible gaze, still imprinted in his corpse's dead stare, of having seen something no man should, likewise were redacted.

    The reports of the people of Ahtu Africa raping white women with black tentacles likewise were utterly redacted. But through terrible nightmares that happened in one day, the same bad dreams shared by hundreds of thousands of white women who woke up as shocked and traumatized as if they had been raped in reality, such censorship in an attempt to not make the entire population of Vinland panic and despair proved itself futile, for even if they cannot be close enough to rape the bodies, they can still rape their minds from afar.

    In 1746, Africa fell to the Eldritch rape gangs, while Vinland was undergoing a massive program to rebuild their annihilated Navy, and prepared for the worse. Hopefully, the terribly tragedy that annihilated their Navy would not be in vain, those seventeen transports could have been used to ship the horrors right into Odinhóll had they not sunk them.

    [​IMG]

    Yet not everything was utterly hopeless. Nyarlathotep is a god of Chaos in every literal sense of the word from a human perspective. His followers grow ever more insane and disorganized with every passing year, unable to operate like an united and coordinated force that waging a long war would require, and the very ground shifts and swirls for the enjoyment of Ahtu. Finally, Ahtu does not care where misery comes from, and is as willing to inflict misery upon its own worshippers as anyone else. Vinland may yet overcome them, for their growing insanity will make them unable to effectively run a military campaign with more organization than that of a bunch of crazy apes running in circles with machetes.

    [​IMG]

    One year later, they have started new wars, millions of totally insane niggers now across the continent, unable to act like a coherent force, doing much out of whim rather than logic, determined to inflict misery just for the sake of it, because their god enjoys human suffering, rather than for becoming even more powerful.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Such insanity also is tearing the massive Hastur Khaganate apart, Eldritch Cultists no longer recognizing the Khagan's authority, and in fact refusing to recognize any petty human authority as they slaughter not so insane loyalists across their lands. Chaos is the only constant within the lands stormed by the worshippers of the Great Old Ones and their Eldritch powers.

    [​IMG]

    By the end of 1747, finally the darkness has ended. The machete gangs were acting in a way that utterly ignored the rule of their "King of Kings of Africa", and chaos has consumed Ahtu Africa from within. They ultimately accepted a token tribute in exchange of peace, being in no condition to dare invading Vinland itself. The nightmare was over, for now, but the ravages of the war weren't. The Norse who settled Africa are a hardy people, but the brief occupation of Ahtu Africa brought PTSD to an entire generation of Norskafrikaners. Shortly after their retreat, a great payback happened against nigger slaves, with dozens of thousands executed based on mere suspicion of being agents of Ahtu Africa. In the minds of the Afrikaners, all of this was to be blamed on niggers, and ironically, after these events, they began to petition the Hersk towards the abolition of slavery because merely looking at a nigger was enough for most who experienced that occupation in all its Congoid Tentacle Rape Apocalypse to have painful and horrifying memories, and they wanted to rid South Africa of the same, seeing their emancipation as the best way to do so and force stubborn slave owners to let them off. Slave labor had a major drop in South Africa after these events, and millions of niggers were sold to foreign countries, their former masters having paid a horrible price for enslaving the locals. For liberals too dumb and oblivious to the nature of the god most Africans worship to see beyond white guilt, what happened in South Africa was "poetic justice".

    But Vinland must not despair. Maybe in the west, in the Pacific Ocean, there are better lands to travel into.

    [​IMG]

    What a shame.

    The Discovery of Oceania

    [​IMG]

    Alestorm: The Sunk'n Norwegian

    In 1749, the Pacific Coast of Vinland was finally colonized. A land rich in the valuable lead and the useful wood, it would serve as the springboard towards the exploration of the Pacific Ocean, from where the explorers of Vinland will attempt to reach into Asia.

    [​IMG]

    Naval supplies may be cheap, but having a lot of them has its benefits.

    [​IMG]

    The policy of low income taxes continued since the days of the purges against Eldritch cults, but taxation is becoming more accurate and the government more organized through the construction of several "District Administration Centers" across Vinland. These district administrations would later serve as the basis of modern state divisions, such as the States of New York New Reykjavík, Maryland Angartýr, Quebec Saguenay, Alabama Albamo, California Shamalaland, Washington Skelizland, Lesser Antilles Pirate Islands, Grótti, Guantanamo Bay, Havana Hafnir and many others

    [​IMG]

    The new light ships of Vinland were essentially smaller two-deckers, as frigates with two decks filled with guns. A fleet made of such formidable heavy frigates would be the one responsible for exploring the vast unknown expanses of the Pacific Ocean all the way west to the Indies, led by the brave explorer Tollak Amundsen

    [​IMG]

    In 1754, Tollak Amundsen discovered a sizable archipelago in the far west of the Pacific Ocean. It didnt take long for a colonial project to begin, for those islands were located at a strategic position for Pacific navigation.

    [​IMG]

    Leif Amundsen passed out peacefully, unlike his predecessor, and was succeeded by Ludvig Sigurdsson, a much better administrator, always an useful skill to have. Most of the West Coast of Vinland also has been charted, and in spite of somehow it requiring a fleet as its income would be through tariffs, it was mostly good so far.

    [​IMG]

    In 1755, Tollak Amundsen crossed the cold northern Pacific and reached Siberia, dominated by a no longer Eldritch Khaganate in spite of Eldritch cults being spread out all across its land. All those lands were occupied, blessed by the powers of beyond and obviously off-limits to any adventurous but sane person.

    [​IMG]

    Rather, they went south, finding a very large and heavily populated archipelago. Then, the minds of the sailors and of Tollak Amundsen were stormed by unpleasant visages of emasculation:

    [​IMG]

    :desu:

    :x

    :rage:

    [​IMG]

    After their long trips, they rested for a while in Ming China, or what is left of it after the Mongol resurgence. Near the Chinese coast, they found an uncivilized island that has a lot of potential for colonization, for it seemed very wealthy. Having some fun with Chink whores made them forget the visages of emasculation they had in the land of the Nihongo.

    [​IMG]

    Tollak Amundsen and his crew, after having their fun in those exotic lands, continued to chart the vast unknown of the Pacific and of the famous Spice Islands, and looks like they are not the only ones interested in establishing colonies across the uncivilized Indies to gain access to their extremely valuable spices.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, in Canada.

    [​IMG]

    Another chain of islands that could be an useful port for ships coming from Hawaii was found, but they were not really needed, not at this age where the technology of naval construction and navigation far surpassed that Leif Ericsson relied upon to colonize Vinland. The Spices Islands were already at reach. Therefore:

    [​IMG]

    THE SPICE MUST FLOW!

    [​IMG]

    Naval supplies are cheap, but there are benefits to having them, specially for a country that needs a powerful Navy.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In the end of the year of 1758, at last the famous expedition of Tollak Amundsen charted the entirety of not only the Spice Islands and Pacific Islands, but also an entire new continent between Asia and Vinland, for a great landmass existed in the southeast pacific, a land that at first seemed only to be desolate, but such was a mistaken perception. Australia had its riches to be uncovered in its southern coast, and to its east, another large archipelago lied as well. So much potential land for conquest or colonization was discovered Vinland had to make a choice. But first, there was also another issue

    1) Nyarlathotep became the black god of the black people and the very South Africans who brought slavery to Vinland want emancipation because of that, so they can return the slaves as free men back to their precious Ahtu Africa. Being the first country to abolish slavery will not hurt much the trade rather than agricultural based economy of Vinland, but should their petition and claims slaves are more trouble than they are worth be listened to and slavery be abolished?

    1-A : Abolish Slavery and deport all of them and their mongrel progeny out of our greatest country. Think about the chicken.

    1-B : No, who will pick up the cotton and be the Uncle Tom then?


    2) And finally, considering they are reaching their maximum navy size limit and the potential of Far East and Oceania, what should be Vinland plans for the Pacific?

    [​IMG]

    2-A : Show the Otakus what the true Vinland is like before they draw a shitty Manga about Vinland, and conquer one of their valuable silk-producing regions.

    [​IMG]

    2-B : The Spice must Flow! Conquer Makassar, colonize several of the Spice Islands and secure their share of the extremely profitable spice trade

    [​IMG]

    2-C : The Norse have enough Neanderthal Admixture to know that when ITZ is coming, it is better to colonize somewhere remote and build a bunker in such a place like Australia

    I vote for 1B2B.

    Only Vinland can tame the negro into a civilized being.
    And Spice Money >>> Australia >>> Worthless silk provinces.

    How can Vinlanders honestly claim to be the Master Race if they don't have any slaves? And also, he who controls the spice controls the universe. At least until the Outer Gods skullfuck the universe to death.

    Therefore, 1B 2B it will be.

    Unfortunately, however, my skills at writing any script language coherently are poor. I realized several typos in events inherited from Mare Apertum and that I did, issues that ended bringing this AAR to an end forty years before 1820 because of an unavoidable crash in 1780. Not that there would be much to show off, as you'll understand by the end of this final update.

    ==========

    The Sun will never set in the Great Vinland Hersk!

    [​IMG]

    The first less than competent Fœrer comes after his predecessor dies along the travel to Makassar, where he was meant to lead an army into conquering such uncivilized but rich land.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Stopping at Ming, the army tasked with the conquest of the first of the great wealth in spices Vinland would soon have was ready. Meanwhile, Vinland has grown into more than a frontier country. It has become one of the greatest colonial powers of the world, having secured their South African colonies from the horrors of Ahtu Africa, and now expanding right into the Spice Islands.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Compared to the brutal battles waged against the Dagonl'nu and to the harsh struggles against the Catholic powers that once dared to think they could take a slice of Vinland for themselves, Makassar's defeat was so easy it was not even worth mentioning. And with such quite populous place subjugated to the Hersk, the Spice began to flow into Vinland coffers.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, in Iberia, Navarra, in something that seems deeply ironicly, was wiping Castille from the map, the Basques ambitions toward creating a Kingdom of Spain clear upon the demise of their former allies.

    [​IMG]

    Odinhóll has become a truly great and glorious city, with more than a hundred thousand inhabitants, it has been blessed with a truly majestic and vast harbor with infrastructure to support ships from the entire New World, and one of the greatest ports of the world.

    [​IMG]

    Damn Granadans, but it was cheaper to appeal to their dishonor than to make them pay. Meanwhile, Tollak Amundsen was determined to chart the entire world, to create the first complete world map, with every sea, every corner known and discovered.

    [​IMG]

    From the experience of his great naval expedition to map the entirety of all oceans in the planet, much Naval Tradition was being gained, and great admirals would rise from his brave crew, that went through the frozen waters near the North and South Poles.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tollak Amundsen sighted another massive landmass in the extremely cold South Pole, large enough to possibly be an entire frozen continent. It was of little interest because of the extreme hostility of such frozen lands, but could unknown secrets and riches be buried under the ice? Braving such hostile land was beyond the technology of this age, for now, but one day an expedition would raise the Raven Banner upon Antarctica.

    [​IMG]

    Fortunately, the rule of the incompetent was not too long, and a new, much greater Fœrer replaced him when he died. Hans Amundsen was his name

    Note: Hans gets close, but it still is not as awesome as "Adolf"

    :M

    [​IMG]

    Nutmeg is the most valuable resource in the Indies, and it seems colonizing them was indeed a great idea, for they would bring immense wealth to the Hersk.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fucking dumb limeys. Leave trading to the superior Nordic ubermensch and not to such "Innsmouth Look" degenerates!

    :x

    This means no attempts towards commercial expansion for a long time.

    [​IMG]

    April 12th, 1770 was the day of Tollak Amundsen's greatest achievement, an achievement that will be remembered in History forever. For he finally has charted ever expanse of seas of the Earth, and from his years of exploration, the most complete World Map ever was created in Vinland. Truly, the legacy of Leif Ericsson has gone far, and now, as Vinland becomes the greatest empire on Earth, it shall be remembered for both its discoveries and feats, and while the Viking Age of old was coming to an end, a new one was slowly rising, from the manufactories where new techniques were being invented, from at first failed attempts to create machines capable of manufacturing in much less time what many men would take longer to do, from the rising of nationalist fervor.

    England failed, Vinland prevailed. The Iberian colonial powers mostly perished to the ambitions of a Navarra resolute to form a kingdom of Spain, and the Norses of the Old World lie on the brink of extinction, for indeed it was in the New that the future of those who have faith in Odin have always been, as woven by the Norns. No country has grown more in territory in the last three hundred years than the glorious and triumphant Vinland, or at least no country not worshipping inhuman and eldritch gods.

    [​IMG]

    A powerful country, with an ever rising economy, such was the great future of Vinland, now secure in peace as Ahtu Africa and all others drown in their own madness.

    [​IMG]

    And while most of the West coast ended producing low value goods, in the end, it building all those anchorages and a larger navy to support such expansion was worth.

    [​IMG]

    Having inherited Denmark through a royal union, France marched to achieve what the Teutonic and Norse Orders failed to, and this time, there was no hope. Sweden, Finland and Lithuania were doomed to be sooner or later wiped from the map. It was only in Vinland that the faith to the olds gods would survive, and maybe one day, rapid iron beasts on treads would blitz through Ile de France, their surrounded armies pathetically raising white flags and the vengeance of the Hersk comes, for what they have done against the Norse will never be forgiven and never be forgotten.

    [​IMG]

    Savages being savage, and rightfully exterminated. It seems that no matter how diplomatically Vinland attempts to be, there will always be those barely better than niggers who will only leave colonists in peace after the always handy genocide.

    [​IMG]

    Some funny thing, in the remote Kuril Islands, the Mughal Empire settled a center of trade, but funnily, the only merchants who bothered with it were from Vinland, and they naturally established an insanely profitable monopoly.

    [​IMG]

    Like Granada transformed their former colonies into their new kingdom when their twilight began over Iberia, so did Castille, with the royal family moving to the palce that links Vinland with America, and swearing revenge against the Basques. Of all Iberian colonial powers, only Portugal survives in their ancestral home, as an ambitious Navarra prepares to completely expel Castille and Granada from the peninsula.

    [​IMG]

    In spite of the crisis, through superior trading skills, Vinland managed to create enough monopolies to gain a valuable boon to their trade, a very important step considering the taxes overseas merchants pay make most of their income. This is an advantage that will give to the Hersk an unequal edge in commerce once the crisis is finally over.

    [​IMG]

    In the west coast, Finns who have learned to hate the French 10 times more than the Russians are offered a refuge safe from religious zealotry and imperialism from the Catholic powers.

    Through the end of the 19th Century, Vinland expanded so much it became the first truly global empire of the world, for it is said that since 1780, the sun never sets in Vinland. From a harsh, difficult beginning as a minor and backwards country in 1453, Vinland has truly honored the legacy of the mythical Angartýr, becoming a country so powerful and courageous they defied even the unspeakable horrors of Ahtu Africa, and prevailed. Now, with colonies in Africa, Asia, Oceania and India, and as the first country to fully chart all oceans of the planet, Vinland will leave a legacy that will be forever remembered

    [​IMG]

    Vinland is the greatest economic power of the world, her wealth from trade and superior manufacture unequaled, a wealth that would transform them into the pioneers of the Industrial Revolution in the next century. The great importance of economics would also transform the Hersk into a Technocratic Hersk, and Vinland would become the only real Technocracy of the world through the next and the 20th Centuries, a country where wisdom and science have always been more important than the dogmatic cretinism and zealotry of the Old World.

    [​IMG]

    To secure a slice of the trade in Odinhóll is the dream of every single merchant on Earth, for the capital of Vinland is truly a World Trade Center (couldn't resist), where there is more wealth and opportunity to be found than in any other city of the world. Through the next centuries, Odinhóll would become the heart of global capitalism, and oftenly the favorite target of fanatical Christard and Durka Durka terrorists, who being all a bunch of FartRiders would naturally fail again and again in such pathetic displays of dishonorable terrorism.

    [​IMG]

    The legions of ITZ have grown complacent and suicidal, their countries, like the mythical Ouroboros, eating themselves too much to be able to continue expanding. The world still was very toughly touched by the ITZ, but there is much yet to come.

    The Qing, once Mughal Empire, once Mongol Khaganate, seems to be in a perpetual state of turmoil. For reasons not entirely known, a Khagan has forsaken the Great Old Ones to embrace Buddhism and Confucianism, and unknowingly, he saved his vast empire, even if it is doomed to much chaos for a long time because of the vastness of Eldritch cults. While the Hastur Khaganate is within a perpetuity of self-destructive chaos, they slowly recover, and may yet challenge the weakened but still powerful Ming Empire to their South.

    The worst kebab dressed as gyro of the Ottoman Empire was one of the first to be struck down hard by the legions of the Great Old Ones, and while they suffered severe territorial losses to both Ahtu Africa and the Hastur Khaganate, they have managed to survive as a still powerful, if decadent and declining empire. It is unlikelythey will make through the next century intact.

    The Dagonl'nu simply decided to leave Vinland in peace, realizing their gods don't give a fuck about the pathetic and insignificant human politics to make them literally invincible. They have grown quiet for centuries, and would grow ever backwards, even with the dark gods helping them.

    The Wyandot became the undisputed rulers of all civilized tribes within Vinland, but they were dragged by their own expansion, failing to westernize, and growing ever more backwards. Through close marriages with the Fœrers of Vinland, there could yet happen an united country within the continent, but only through peace, for the value of honor is held in too high regard inside Vinland for them to betray their only reliable allies.

    Through contact with Europeans, the triumphant Vijaynagar within Southern India attempts to westernize, secure in the knowledge Vinland does not have ambitions over the Indian subcontinent, and that all other European powers have grown too weak to attempt a conquest of the Indies. Over most of India, Islam was crushed like a skull of pig and the Wyrmlords triumphed against the Andhairas.

    France conquered Scandinavia through their treachery of being a bunch of frogs, and Sweden, Finland and Lithuania are slowly fading away through partitions, with little hope of victory. Perhaps one day there will be a glorious revenge for this, like a blitzkrieg, like some Norse ubermensch dressed in black with an insignia of two lightning bolts from Thor putting froggies in their place and tearing down Notre Dame. But for now Vinland is not yet ready, but once the time comes to say hello to the frogs:

    :flamesaw:

    Navarra, despite deprived of any colonial possessions, conquered most of Iberia, forcing Castille and Granada to seek shelter in their former colonies, now remnants of their fallen homeland. From the New World, they prepare themselves to take back the lands they consider rightfully theirs. Through decades their conflicts would remain inconclusive.

    As for Vinland, obviously:

    VINLAND FUCK YEAH!

    THE END
