    I love peace but it has been broken!!!!
    --------------------------

    Ferdinand sat in the throne room listening to reports from Europe when a messenger rushed through the doors with a letter in hand.

    "Comrade!! An important letter from our observers in the Ottoman Empire!"

    Ferdinand received the letter and read.

    "Dear Comrade Ferdinand, please brace yourself for this most shocking news. One of our spies was at a dinner with the leaders of the Austrian and Ottoman empires when the king of Austria said, 'You know, once I'm done with the Prussians and the Brits, I wouldn't mind having a go at the Spanish. I don't think those peasants and their peasant leader would be able to do a thing to defend themselves. Look at what happened in Sweden.' The two leaders then proceeded to have a good laugh at your expense. Our spy, worried about this comment, immediately send word to our spy in the Austrian capital. That spy searched through Austrian war plans and found documents signed by the Emperor of Austria authorising a pre-emptive strike on Spain. What do you advise?"

    Ferdinand nearly fainted at this news. "So, Spanish blood is to again flow in the fields of Europe. So be it! Send the armies forth and crush the Austrians and all who join them!"

    The three main armies of Spain set forth, destroying Austrian cavalry set to attack Montauban and marching over the Pyrenees. Ferdinand himself mounted a steed and rushed off to join his armies.

    well you could always start doing something in the game

    what - a mission

    yes lad a mission

    wow - that would be cool

    ok, so load up that massive army of yours and march on up to the gates of Vienna and blow them in... KaaaBOOOMMM

    then start attacking as many Austrian units as you can

    the goal - destroy Austria

    so are yee upto it?

    would definitly give you something to write about











    so go on... yes you... get up off that beach, put down the wine and meat for a while, go look for your sword and uniform, you may even find a general or two hanging around your Palace...

    then get your troops marching

    Thank you for the compliment. The problem is I'm not doing anything in the game now. Just passing my turns and wondering if Russia is going to march across Europe and attack me (we are technically at war). It took him ages to get to Paris so perhaps I have nothing to worry about. (Sorry, Aqualung - couldn't resist)

    I hear the Ottomans' court may not be lavish for too much longer

    Indeed. Ferdinand has grown somewhat lazy with his rise to power and spends his time trying to create a lavish court like the Ottomans. Ah, but the people are happy and well defended.

    We hear rumours drifting across the steppes to Russia that Ferdinand has led a bloody coup in his beloved Spain, removing the hated dictator Carlos IV.

    Yet these pages remain eerily silent about Ferdinand's tales. Perhaps in his new lofty position he no longer keeps his diaries

    Ah, then perhaps he may find himself defending his homeland against British landings soon

    Ferdinand wasn't in Sweden. Last I saw he was in Spain waiting for a transfer to infantry.

    Sorry to have to announce to the eager readers.....but Ferdinand was killed by Russian Cossacks in the Swedish Highlands

    He is now out of the clutches of that deranged Spanish madman known in his own mind as Masuro the Munificent, and serves a greater spirit.

    May he rest in peace

    Yes. Plans to defend Sweden against aggressors.

    Oh, so you have plans?

    Sounds like a conspiracy is being hatched against the other loyal members of the Grand Alliance!

    Possiblt he won't be happy about it. I'm waiting a bit before writing any more of the story so no plans are revealed.

    Seems like Ferdinand made a very bad career choice joing the infantry, and has now been shipped off to Sweden, of all places
