The TAC: The Authentic Colonization team presents: May there always be enough water beneath your keel Idea and realisation by MaCross Welcome to our TAC Game of the Month November 2013! This month, we travel to todays second smallest province of canada, Nova Scotia. Your task: Launch a considerable fleet! Link to video. Spoiler : In the early 17th century, Samuel de Champlain drove forward the colonization of the sparsely populated province, formerly known as Acadia, essentially consisting of a larger peninsula and the Cape-Breton Island. In 1620, the English King Jacob I. summarily declared Acadia to belong to the territory of New England and shortly after that, the British began to increase their settling efforts. The most part of the immigrants came out of Scotland to Acadia, which climate and landscape was fairly similar to the Scottish. No wonder, the name ‚Nova Scotia‘ was more and more frequently used and finally became the new official name of the province. Throughout the 17th century, it repeatedly came to conflicts between the English and French, who fought side by side with the indigenous people, the Micmac, until in the year 1713 the colony was officially put under British authority in the "Peace of Utrecht". Nonetheless there were still settlements on the Cape-Breton and Prince-Edward Islands that remained in French hand and so the conflict kept smouldering. In the course of the King George's War in 1744, the French and British fought over Nova Scotia again, leading to the decision of the British to expedite immigration once more. Subsequently, todays capital Halifax was founded, once a small fishermen's village...
