Oh man, that would be awesome. Especially as the mercenaries pitch a fit and the whole thing descends into chaos :mrgreen: Alas, I've invested a lot of money into there with my own shady long-term plans.

I'd just watch as Raj goes and invades.

Oh no you don't. The rest of us only expanded by a process of in-game building. As far as I know, nobody magic-ed in new forces after Shep and Skim did their thing. And if they did, they're buttholes. But no, no magic new units. You want a larger force, you can pay for it like the rest of us.

BTW I went and updated the ORBAT entry on factions in the CFR, a least to show which groups are no longer in existence and to show that Yorkshires forces have gotten much bigger due to Indhopal's largess.

Seigetank, I didn't touch the Winter Army because I'm not sure what exactly you've done with them.

Hey, remember that CATO isn't just Warsaw-pact gear, Shroomania and PeZookia also use Western/NATO-standard kit. So if there's something in the decadent capitalist pigdogs' arsenal that you like to add to the Combined CATO wargear, then just say that it was originally 'made in PeZookia/Shroomania' or something. :)

Cialan is wise to send his spies to PeZookia. In the UCSR, the KGB and NOD would do bad things to them. Same with Byzantium and its Inquisitors.

And in Shroomania, they would get trampled on by elephants.

Given the legendary PeZookian stinginess, bribes should do plenty. :D

Good point. By the way, you should TOTALLY have Inquisitors to be Emperor Heraclius' own personal intelligence apparatus.

And they must be led by a spy chief named Septimus.

Who in Stardust is played by Mark Strong, who is also the Jordanian chief of intelligence in Body of Lies.

Raj, I took the liberty of loading the updated bits you wrote on the CFR onto the wiki. I also wrote a quick and dirty update on the Winter Army, I'll get around to fleshing out their OOB sometime soon-ish.

Seigetank I dig your description of the Winter Army's capital. I imagine that while the city is becoming somewhat developed, the countryside is still languishing for the most part. In other words we got the Sudan model of development where Khartoum has high end grocery stores and the country side is still subsistence farming for the most part.

Is that a pretty accurate statement?

Pretty much, yes. It's not quite as bad as Sudan, but Kircaldy and its immediate vicinity are definitely the high-end of the region, the majority of the highlands still are very poor, very underdeveloped, and much less safe. Of course now that the capital is secure, the arrival of 4th Parachute, and money flowing in, the restoration of the rest of the territory will take less time than the 10 years it took Fimbulwinter to get to where it's now.

So I was meandering around the Wiki and I was thinking. Fin, if your F-12s are grounded awaiting avionics upgrades, I'll take some off your hands if you're interested. You know, as a show that Byzantium and Shinra don't have to hate each other forever?

In fact I did not, having never played a single incarnation of the MGS series... Though I take it there's bits of it that take place on Zanzibar?

As an aside, would it be all right if state plantations of the King of Zanzibar are the world's largest producer of bananas? Producing forty percent of the world's bananas, a source of great pride for the islanders. On Zanzibar, bananas are not a laughing matter!
