Does any one share my sense of natural boundaries to certain Empires you build on here....
Russian Empire - For me that includes all regions from Muscovy to Poland and Moldavia. Finland also ideally.
Ottoman empire - That is everything from Byzantium and Macedonnia down to Egypt. Possibly all way to Tunis at it's largest.
Spanish Empire - All of Iberian peninsula plus north Africa up to Tunis. Possible expansion into France - that spearhead grouping of Gascony Aquitaine and Ill de France being my preference.
Scandinavian Empire - All Scandinavia that includes Finland, plus Hanover and the small grouping of regions around Hanover.
British Empire - Is odd because once i have built up in UK, expansion into Europe always feels really messy. Adding Scandinavia seems more palatable.
Roman Empire - The four that make up the boot of Italy plus the islands, plus maybe Dalmatia and Austria, and a couple of African provinces.
France and Germany i just can't get my head around. They freak me out to play. They have no defining boundaries, nothing to get your back against in a fight. You can get attacked from all sides. Nothing seems safe. Half an hour playing either of them i am so frazzled it's load the elephant tranquilliser gun and shoot me.
