That's a great start Boggit. I hear rumblings that the campaign isn't balanced very well at start. I'd be interested in your opinion-- or Brant's since it's his post-- as to who has the upper hand and why.

Brant's name is on them only because he is the cut-and-paste-monkey that loads the articles.

The authors' names are all over them to make sure I don't accidentally get unwarranted credit :)

Cut-and-Paste Monkeys are important too. And have opinions. And also apparently, scissors and paste.

You are right that the campaign isn't balanced at the start, but being a history buff I can live with it. It's just a reflection of history. The Imperialists were nearly overrun at the outset, coming close to losing Vienna. The trick in the game is to delay events, and wait for the Catholic League to wake up to the political threat represented by all those Protestant rebels/states coming out of the woodwork. Then you have the challenge of reversing the tide of heresy, which ain't easy! ;) You'll get no Papal Bull here! :2funny:
