    Ahh, that's good. You need to try to remain with a majority of Core provinces though, or you'll drown in revolts. Thanks to the fact Byzantium starts with a buttload of cores, I don't have to worry about that. I've only been expanding through missions, and I grow into pretty much huge levels of power in no time.

    Uploading pic of 1496, me and my vassals.

    Takes a while due to huge size.

    Welp, that might not be so good. I got a core event on one of the Moroccan provinces, but the rest are just annexed. What's the best way to go around getting those?

    Missions.

    Do the missions.

    ALL THE MISSIONS.

    At least all the ones that are core-related.

    Also, pic

    Also hero, you need to read the tutorial if you want to understand shit. Not the in-game one, the unofficial guide.

    Leo should have it, but I also have it saved.

    You want it?

    In that case, what's the best way to get Casus Belli on an Italian nation? Or can I reject the mission and let a new one roll over?

    Hmm... Changing regions is hard. Most of the time, you'll have to get a province there, wait 50 years until it becomes a core, and then you'll start getting missions for that region. Sometimes there will be missions that'll let you core provinces that are not from your region (i.e a neighbor), but only under special circumstances (Byzantium is allowed to reclaim Italy and crush Venice, for example).

    And the best way to get Casus Belli are alliances. Nothing makes a clusterfuck of wars better than a well-planned alliance system.

    Silly Divine Wind expansion and its Warring States Japan. Better than Indian unification, at the least. Less crap going on around you, even if the whole Japanese unification system is rather weird compared to their others.

    Relatively good for a "Carthago Surrectum" style campaign, however.

    Speaking of Grand Strategy games: GalCiv2 is just plain awesome.

    Just thought I'd mention that. :P

    Hahaha, Jagged Knife. Not as bad as Dread Lords for me; when the Jagged Knife rolls around I just build literally hundreds of my simple cross-shaped troop carriers and send them at the affected planets. Nothing can survive that onslaught.

    Interestingly enough, GalCiv2 is one of the few games in which I'm played in SERIOUS MODE. The main other one being AoE3.
