"If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs, obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud. Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, my friend, you would not tell with such high zest to children ardent for some desperate glory, the old Lie; Dulce et Decorum est Pro patria mori." -Wilfred Owen



Welcome one and all to the second iteration of 'Pro Patria Mori'. Now is the time for you to take on the role of a nation's proud leader, and carve out your people's place in a changing world. The year is 1756, and the world is shifting, old powers suddenly finding themselves rubbing shoulders with new and growing nations. Greedy eyes have turned towards the riches of foreign lands, even while the threat of war still hangs over Europe like a dark cloud. The decisions that you make will decide how the coming years will be remembered; whether you lead your nation into a golden age, or plunge into the maelstrom of war, is entirely in your hands.

The countries that should cover the map no longer exist. Instead, Europe is a clean slate, ready to be populated by your own nation, and the nations of your fellow players. Of course it is not unfeasible that nation's with the same culture and territory as real countries may exist, but that is entirely up to you.

With that, good luck! I look forward to whoever joins us.

@Heyitsjiwon Hispalis looks good to me. The only point is that all the values have to be 0-10, so your Low Industry is one point too high, but other than that I'm happy to accept it. Just let me know when you've fixed it, and let me know a colour. I'll use red as a placeholder.

@LordZell Dorist all adds up, so consider yourself accepted. Just specify which province your capital is in and you'll be all set. And to fix your broken images, it should work if you use "i.ibb.co/xSt1NDt/07YWg6K.jpg" for your Leader Portrait, and "i.ibb.co/th38FTD/r-Hlz-MTI-2.png" for your claims. Dark blue works as a colour if you're happy with it.

I'll add both nations to the map so that people don't accidentally double claim.

As tempted as I am to bring back colony-collecting wave-ruling Toubres, the other returners seem to have gone in new directions, so I think I'll follow suit. Watch this space!

Tbh, I was seriously considering forming a north sea empire of sorts with lands in ireland, scotland and norway. Would have been interesting, but the border gore seemed a bit much.

Edit: Also, fixed the points.

Edit 2: Can we get a fresh discord channel?

@SonOfALich Well you can blame Toubres for almost single-handedly forcing the changes around colonies, so probably a good thing they didn't come back!

@Heyitsjiwon Hispalis all looks good now, feel free to move it across to the Characters tab. And in terms of Discord, I'd like to hold off until we have our starting players, just to keep a busy OOC.

@urukhai Kalseran looks ship-shape, so consider yourself accepted. Move it across to the Characters tab at your leisure, and I'll update the main map.

@LordZell And Dorist looks good to go, you're also free to move over to the Characters tab.

Let me know if this needs any changes/modifications to be acceptable. Here is my submission and application to your NRP.

@Abefroeman Komentiolos all adds up, so consider yourself accepted. Feel free to move it over to the Characters tab, and I'll add you to the main map.

Starting to fill up people, so if anyone is looking at making a nation, please let me know so I can decide where/when to put the cutoff.

So we have: not Spain, not Venice on steroids, not Prussia, and not Byzantium who seems to be having a major Bulgar problem. Spicy! A lot of room for history and relations.

@Romero So is the Kingdom of Ilastiri just an example, or are those provinces taken? I'm torn between a not-France and a not-Poland with plenty of winged hussars.

@SonOfALich Ilastiri is just an example, so you're clear to take that territory for yourself if you want.
