Yea, its really good.

Although I wish we could get an insight on the minds of the Templars and the Northern Republic/Empire.

I think my account of the Strategus History is pretty good, would a mod be willing to sticky it?  I will continue to update the first post as strategus progresses, which sources say will be very soon.

I'll look at compiling a history from TomMyyY, Vanular, Parre and other vets.

We should be able to get a pretty detailed recount with all these experiences.

Ah... good old strat.

Would be good to read an account of what we did and stuff. Some decisions I don't even know why we made them, but I do know it had something to do with...

The problem is even if you are number 1 in NA you are still only number 467 in EU or the worst in AUS(number 17)

I can't believe the amount of hatred we gathered against ourselves  :lol:

Anyhow, compiling archives shouldn't be difficult since everything that went public (the most relevant, IMO, whatever conspirationists could think) is in the old forums.

My memory doesnt serve it justice to be sure.

I can only hope that the next strat version will be as interesting as this one was.

Nice account Casimir, it shows pretty clearly the confusion in the Templars after Growl's departure: if you think that the "good allies" (Guards, Shogunate, Legio and D'haran/IG) were sure about DRZ and Gardarika involvment while you let them roaming around in your land. Also one of the reason behind the dissolvence of the templar block was that your official referent, I don't actually remember who he was, never cared about answering when there were sudden decisions to take or in the best case gave us a cryptic "we don't care, strategus is soon over".

I hope you guys have built back a good organization now ^^

Thanks for posting Casimir, that was an important perspective that had been left out so far. 

I'd especially like to hear from:

Caravan Guards: anyone who remained active throughout strategus
LLJK: Their story has yet to be told...
And of course, anyone else who has a story to tell.

Nice story Casimir, well written and sums quite well what happened.
But i can see some mistakes, also in the chronology of events regarding our and d'haran part in your story.

For example,
Quote
dharan and legio returned to their homelands, disappointed at their lack of success and laying the blame on the Templars for not escorting their armies or covering them from the lock downs that they faced. Then Druzina struck, capturing Dharan lands without a fight and legio quickly surrendered following a brief siege of Yalen.

Under the promise of glory, protection and the return of their lands Legio and Dharan turned to the 22nd and their allies joining what is now known as the UIF. United Independent Factions

We didn't return our expeditionary forces in our lands (before signing the peace at least), we were left alone with d'harans while locked in the north.
We never lost any land against the uif, but only yalen, weeks later against the pub crawls.

Since we still had good defences in our land (d'harans have none because they planned to migrate to the north) we were in a much better position to negotiate and in the end we signed a white peace + nap with the Uif, not after the siege of yalen, but before it. We even kept the looted equip drz gave to us by not showing up for the battle.

D'harans never joined the uif, they just signed a nap with them. Drz gave their land back to them after some time because of their previous peace agreements, not because they were allies.

You inspired me to write the history of the legione italica, careful huge wall of poor english text incoming  :mrgreen:
