Rule 5: The Legation Cities, being an amalgamation of Treaty Ports, isn’t exactly the most wholesome political entity in-game. Simply put, it is the ultimate manifestation of China’s Century of Humiliation. Honestly any route it goes down that doesn’t result in reintegration into China itself is rather cursed. The [Legation Cities](https://i.imgur.com/04MT6eu.png) in my current run has interestingly ceded every city north of Shanghai to Fengtian, so I guess that’s only slightly less cursed than normal. #Germany AAR My Lend-Leases to the Chinese Warlords are working quite effectively. So effectively in fact that, that I have completely run out of Support Equipment and have had to reallocate some Military Factories accordingly. I’ve also noticed as I was sifting through equipment to send, that the [goddamn Swiss](https://i.imgur.com/nMBzziZ.png) must’ve been stockpiling armaments like there was no tomorrow. The only notable development elsewhere is that Sultan Abdulmejid II of the Ottoman Empire [has died](https://i.imgur.com/e9VjdnB.png). I have two polls today pertaining to the Federalist Exiles. The [prior poll](https://www.reddit.com/user/-et37-/comments/xiem4c/the_oversized_federalist_navy/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) about their Navy was quite close, but ultimately it has been decided that the older ships will be sold off, [but to whom](https://www.reddit.com/user/-et37-/comments/xjbcjj/selling_older_ships/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf). The [second poll](https://www.reddit.com/user/-et37-/comments/xjbh23/the_population_problem/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) pertains to the excess population that the American Pacific has been crowded with ever since the conclusion of the 2ACW. My next post will be all about a rather significant technological advancement, as a new age is about to dawn on humanity…

Uh oh, it’s actually about the [Transistor](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transistor).

So this isn't an alterante timeline of Fallout then.

>So effectively in fact that, that I have completely run out of Support Equipment How?! You should be stuffed with it from the Russian War. Especially late game HOIV and from you steroiding Russia. I've been doing vanilla for a bit and even in wars ending in 42-43 there is so much equipment I have to delete the ones that number less than 200. Wait one second... With all the world-building, did you ever explain how Russia went from almost broken from the civil war and being weaker than its pre-WW1 self to where it went toe to toe with your Kaiserreich?

>Uh uh uhhhhh they uhhhh Sounds like you have more homework XD And don't think I didn't notice you didn't answer the first part ;)


-et37-

I do believe I ran out because I was sending 10k every month to 5 warlords at once. I also had Support Equipment on the back burner after the 2WK.


WellingtontheGrunt

Forgot to do this earlier because of work. Are you still taking suggestions for the German-led faction name? Mine is Europa Cordiale A subtle thumb of the nose to the Entente before it finally dies.

>that the goddamn Swiss must’ve been stockpiling armaments like there was no tomorrow. It's almost like they feared a large imperialist power on their borders might invade and annex them. No idea where they got that idea.

Sir my troops were merely passing through and opted to enjoy a nice Alpine Vacation.


jord839

And when is that Alpine Vacation going to end, Tuetsch? Don't make me write "Go on home, German soldiers, go on home" in Swiss German. I'll do it.

Oh god oh fuck German Troubles, this time with Chocolate & Cheese


Deadfield420

That would actually be cool, the swiss germans not liking the empire, the romanch peoples being annoyed at everyone, the french swiss seeing the exiles as psuedo-puppets of the germans. A multi-way troubles conflict


jord839

Honestly, Kaiserreich plays up a sense of linguistic/nationalistic division that didn't exist in Switzerland in this timeframe. It didn't matter your language, you were still Swiss as long as you came from Switzerland. If anything, the problem would be a multi-national resistance movement against the Germans, Italians, and French. The Romansch are honestly like, a couple thousand farmers in the middle of nowhere. If they care at all, it's for overall Switzerland (though their language might survive better if it's not on the slow assimilation path of OTL due to spite against occupiers) Source: am Swiss


jord839

I mean, OTL Switzerland \*did\* set bombs on all the bridges to Germany. Wouldn't be that out of place. Hey, I'm giving you content for your post-game headcanon/lore. Have fun.

Cynikus

Oh no, our Japanese fella ain't racist - you gotta be human bo be an object of racism and I'm quite sure that the Empire doesn't really see the Chinese as equal human beings


lord_ofthe_memes

Isn’t not seeing another group as equal human beings kinda the definition of racism?


Embarrassed-Poem4264

Well, Emily said racism is a white thing, so maybe no?


just_one_random_guy

Weird that the legation cities even exist still and didn’t get appropriated by the Japanese


-et37-

Yeah idk, I looked into the files and apparently some of the cities can periodically get yoinked by neighboring Warlords. Their treasury is “below average” as well. I haven’t gotten the “Legations Collapse” Event either.

Current state of the Legation Cities be like [1:41](https://youtu.be/UijhbHvxWrA)

In one of my recent games, Brazil restored the concessions. It would be cool to add a dynamic element to the flag of the LC, removing members who withdraw and adding new ones.

The Cities have an awesome flag though.

The other Market Liberal guy you can get. If I'm going Legation Cities, I'm gonna go full capitalism and colonial exploitation all the way. Everyone gets to take part.
