Finally, time it is for 4th installment of Cossack’s Most Glorious Nation Builder.The world nears a new age of technology with steam power spreading through the nations and economic blocs are forming polarizing the world economy.Also for all the returning veterans, there will be no world event to spur your people to war. You will have to create your own scapegoat reasons for war.
These be the rules, read them (same as always for those returning).New nations that want to join I will need:Name:Location:Color:Fluff:You will start with 1 population, 1 wealth and 5 stability.also required that you join the chathttp://client00.chat.mibbit.com/#NationBuilderPlay will begin when the map is posted (roughly 30 mins from now) and the first turn will conclude half an hour after that give or take.
The previous threads for those who are interestedhttp://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/22997076/ - Session 1http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/23000401/ - Session 2http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/23268076/ - Session 3
Name: Ley Line AllianceLocation: West across the waters from the AztecColour: Dark BlueFluff: Formed by several sages who believed they had found a point where all the ley lines of the world connect. Using the ley lines they hope to obtain mastery over nature and a way to read the knowledge of the land.
Today’s numbering system is…….The French Language!A Note: That striped portion of Cossacks is a vassal state under inferno. Vassal states can now be formed from NPC’s or conquered enemies. They can be used as portions of your own nation as far as actions go but can have separate resources and are separate entities for fluff purposes. Inferno, this vassal has 1 pop and 1 army. You may kidnap the populace for experimentation as you wish but doing so too frequently will cause problems. Nothing serious but you may need to light rebels on fire from time to time.You may also notice some nations have been removed due to inactivity. I give a grace period of 2 sessions then the nation will be removed. If you tell me you’re going to miss it before we start I won’t count that session as an absence.P.S. If you could post progress on research and mines (x/x) next to the actions it will save me the time of scrolling to find it.You can post first turns now, if i get bored waiting I will bump with Most Glorious Cossack Pictures

The hardening of the soul that comes with becoming a mental warrior. A psychic arbiter of death.

Notably the concept of "locomotion", using steel and steam to transport vast quantities of goods across a large area. Cogholme had begun to fall behind on roads, and rather than play catchup, the chief saw the virtue of bypassing the need for traditional roads entirely. The rail system would be his roads now.

Freeier than his and yet still valuing currency and order. He could see a great deal of value with stronger relations.In return for the brand new steam engine technology, he would receive the secrets of thunderpowder, and the secrets of alcohol.
