This is an awesome Swedish starting location. The Norse have built most of their empire in Scandinavia which all flips to Sweden. The Norse declare war on you but collapse soon after. So you have all of your starting units, a few units that flipped from the Norse, and a sizable fleet to conquer the remainder of the Norse empire, three independent cities. You basically have freedom to do almost whatever you please. With this start I managed to capture Dublin, two cities from Russia, and two cities from the Dutch (including Amsterdam) by just a few turns after the Dutch spawned. I imagine there's huge potential to build other types of nations, not just a massive military nation. A peaceful economic nation perhaps, or an expansive religious nation. This start has huge potential. By the way it's a Monarch game.
