    I think that means Christos would have to become Christus in order to balance things out.

    Now as a positive, that might summon Jehoshua back to us so that he can once again play the Machiavellian Pope he is!

    I recommend that thou go there not, young Tani, lest thou find out the link between alopecia and foxes… the bad way.
    A worthy idea, young Tani. How wouldst thou undertake it?

    You know I cannot remember playing as the Papal States. Have I played them?

    Of course the Isle of Man is always a temptation for I.

    Most people who willingly seek out to play the Papal States aren't players who should play the Papal States. (What's with the font?)

    I do not believe so...

    But I also reflexively associate them with Jehoshua in any game...

    Coming soon: Ailedhoo plays as the first Orcish Pope

    I like Jehoshua, actually. He is very intellectually honest and rigorous, in my experience, and I admire that.

    @Takhisis are you also Daria or what has happened here

    He's a Catholic reactionary and a blowhard, I suppose that there's different ways to spell out "intellectually honest and rigorous".

    I'm just gonna say, with all respect or whatever, I don't feel the need to defend my "left" credentials. I can recognize and respect that people who I want no association with in real life can put ideas together well in their heads, as repugnant as I might find their sentiments. It's a war-games forum. I really don't want to go back to a point in my life where I held actual resentment to people I don't know, and so I release my anger at him for his hostility to my way of life.

    As a GM, I just liked being privy to the bigger picture and seeing all the neat stuff Jehoshua's Papal States would get up to behind the scenes.

    They're mighty big shoes to fill with my attempts to replicate his portrayal of the Papacy with a Papal States NPC :p

    Right on top of Joecoolyo's Japan, Red Spy's Poland, and Christos' China. It's actually been really fun consulting years old threads for guidance on how each state should behave...

    Please explain, my Spanish friend.
    It's a bit like Groucho Marx and club membership, I think.
    We should do a fusion dance. Or maybe not, because my Daria is the one as depicted in Beavis and Butthead and thine appeareth to be the one from the homonymous series.
    Voyeur.

    Everyone used to say I looked like Daria in high school and I was Daria for Halloween a few years back and now I am Daria all the time. So are you on that level?

    Look, there's something magical about a player who can become the turn 1 leading power because some other players are so terrified of him they are willing to pay 10% of their income as a tithe right off the bat :p

    I did not like Jehoshua. He said some very deeply offensive and untrue things about me and my friends that I will not repeat as I would be breaking thread rules to even allude to them in greater detail. While doing this he acted with extreme intellectual dishonesty and with zero rigour.

    Now I'm just remembering that IOT where there were five Popes competing for legitimacy...

    That, THAT is the kind of insanity that makes being a GM well worth it.

    Now, about giving everyone nuclear weapons...

    Since the current line of discussion bores me, lets talk RPGs.

    What's everyone reading and playing these days? I'm still running my PBTA Sprawl campaign and I'm about to start a Mongoose Traveller 2e campaign. Been reading a lot of Mothership lately and I feel like I have a dozen RPGs I want to run someday, including The Silent Legions and Zweihander.

    I’m playing a homebrew Superhero RPG. Its not the best mechanically and I’m becoming less and less of a fan of Superheroes, but the game is fun and the people I’m playing with are cool.
