I'm tempted to join. Maybe Spain, as Lucius has called Scotland. I think Jetkill should pick England.

I'll play, though it'll probably be a smaller, irrelevant nation because I know jack squat

Haha, with u Punic. I will probably be a Italian or German state.

Lucius- as long as you get your "moves" in then all should be fine.

Been awhile since I played a map game so count me in as well. I have a moderate knowledge of the era thanks to my viewing of historical dramas like The Tudors, Isabel and Canal's Borgia: Faith and Fear, but like Punic I shall also aim for a smaller state so no one will have to worry about me 'dominating' or anything like what happened in the last map game I participated in

If it's available, I call dibs on the Principality of Wallachia

Ummm jetkil, maybe the Danes, or the Swedes would be good, the Swedes are a bit powerful but they weren't in the thick of it. Also whoever wanted Scotland can definitely have it.

EDIT: I mad a historical error: Austria is not in union with Spain, but Bohemia is a client-state of Austria for a while.

As for the start date, I feel like 1555 is a good start date, as it marks the end of the first real religious war of the period(And bloody Mary). Another choice is 1520 which is near th rule of everyone's favorite English king, the esteemed diplomat, epic ladies man, and overall wonderful guy: Henry the VIII.

What if the starting date was pushed back even further, like 1510 or 1512, just a year before the Battle of Flodden. Its also in the early reign of Henry VIII of England and Charles V of The Holy Roman Empire.

Around 1515 through 1550 is good, IMO. 1517 was when Luther printed his 95 Thesis (IIRC) and 1550 was about the time Charles V stepped down from being HRE and King of Spain. Still, there were some wars in-between, and definitely afterwards.

I choose Portugal... However, I have one question: How will overseas empires be represented in the game?

My guess would probably pretty little- most likely a bit of an monetary benefit.

1520, it marks the English-French Alliance, it's the year before the Diet at Worms, and it's also a pretty looking date.

We still need England, Austria, Spain, and France in order to start the game.

As for overseas possesions, you'll get more money to spend on troops(I'm not going to bother with complex economies; each country will have a regular income which they can invest to get a return, or spend on troops or navy).

Seems like everyone has taken out-of-the-way countries, so there's no one to take the main ones.

We only need one more player for England and then we can start.

We also need Spain, unless no one is opposed to an Austria-Spain Union even though Charles V never really had an claim on Austria but was HRE.
