      Hello, could you elaborate your history a bit in terms of medieval and early modern political structure(s) in Gunnland? How and what regions were part of the Holy Tiburan Empire or other entities, independent perhaps? Thx.

        Okay, thanks! That case Salen will not have been either, perhaps only as a tributary in some form comparable to the Frisian Freedom.

        Additionally, I see the Wash passes through Windhaven, Dalmyre and Seaguard. I imagine it to be somewhat parallel to my border, correct? What elevation did you intend for your most-western regions? I currently have this area covered with low mountain ranges at my side (i.e. Eifel, Ardennes). They could easily shift into lower or upper ground at your side of the border? :)

        There is a mountain range that runs north-south between Seaguard and Ayr, so the Wash can flow northwards through a valley formed my Arundel Mountains and our low border mountains.

        The apparent Muslim elites could be "Hagarists" involved in selling slaves north; I think of them as caravan traders. Or they could be Urodoah that have contempt for both Azraqi heterodoxy and the native Mafewo-Fante people of PS. I don't know what Azraq would get more than prestige, Qiltu's internal political motives, or a way to keep the LCC violence from spilling over.

        Ok. Perhaps you have a Swahili type Nethian-Urodoah elite in the north that was historically involved in the slave trade and closer to RL orthodox Islam.

        I'll look for a way to get involved as keen to RP with you and should look to wrap in Loago too.

        I have to say that the enormous amounts of money you can claim in IRL US American civil lawsuits cannot be claimed in IC Eiffelland, but six-digit-amounts are possible. Prince Ludwig will go for 200,000 Eiffelland Mark.

      Thank you for your like of my last post in Eastern Vengeance. There is a chance though that I have to adapt it. Serenierre raised an objection against me presuming that Premier Martinique has a bank account in Gunnland. I will let you know.

        Presumably SereniƩrre also controls banks in market economies for this purpose as well; Gunnland's banking laws would lend themselves to this sort of thing, since they're crafted (in part) to shield Kadikistan-owned banks.

        IRL the Soviet Union controlled banks in Switzerland, London, Paris, etc., so it's probably reasonable to diversify to prevent any one bank/account from being frozen.

      Tell me more about the Fergusines. Are they Benedictines by another name? Something different? Are they anywhere outside the Gunnish sphere of influence? Thanks!
      1. Gunnland
        Gunnland
        I think of them like the Cistercians in Austria: perhaps they are an international strict Benedictine-like order, but in Gunnland, by special royal remit, they are parish priests, teachers, sometimes bishops. In the old Gunnland the "Fergusites" had a military component but I haven't decided about that yet.

      I dont have a lot of time to take on even more rp, but any chance of a Bergenheimer archbishop or cardinal candidate? We do have tiburan catholics as a majority so having even a minor influence, or some clear IC reason why not, would be fun to see. ^^
      1. Gunnland
        Gunnland
        I think the "policy" we established OOCly was that any nation-player, Tiburan Catholic-majority or not, is welcome to participate in papal election/Catholic RP by having a cardinal. So you can just claim to have one. But AFAIK, my request to Elben is the first time the selection of a cardinal has been offered ICly to the pope -- I think that's preferable but not necessary.

        There was a consistory earlier this summer where the pope chose new cardinals. The actual list was left to be decided along the lines described above (along with some secret cardinals known only by the pope, but I don't have any names for them in mind either, just a fun detail to throw out).

        Some of whom have died by now, I think one of Eiffelland's was murdered, and now Stewart.

      How about some raids on Gunnish banks with a presence in Amstov as part of the Vacant Bank scandal? I'd imagined Trivodnia's capital being something of a regional financial centre as well, although we probably lost a lot of Kadikistani clients after the Christmas Crisis...

      Would Cardinal Stewart obey a summons to Eiffelland to see the pope? What would be the best venue for a conversation on the cardinal's role? A thread of its own?
      1. Gunnland
        Gunnland
        Yes and yes, we could open a thread with @Retalia about the bank scandal and the status of the VC in general.

      I want to integrate a bit more into the fabric of RP. So, one option I'm exploring is for Elben to have regular visits by his Pope to the Vacant City in Tibur.

      As Gunnland is so staunchly Catholic, maybe an area to explore is supporting the Order of Saint Lothar in the management of the Vacant City within Tibur?

      I mean, we've finally found Tibur, let's use it!

      I took the liberty of assuming Chief MacLeish is still in Trivodnia. Also do we have diplomatic relations? If so I'm gonna kick your ambassador out! Might also cancel some Gunnish work visas for fun.

      I always presumed I did this, since early on, but never really RP'd it specifically. I would most certainly be interested in acquiring a bank in Ayr, maybe even going back to the 1930s?
      1. Gunnland
        Gunnland
        Sounds good. Perhaps I'll even have the Gunnish banking sector grow up around the "(Ivar) People's Bank" headquartered in Ayr, and say it really took off in the 1970s/80s as Ayr grew in importance.
