Not sure if you need maps, Dkrol, but if there's need for them I did found a Europe (needs work) and a World (generally accurate) Map for possible use:

Those are great, thank you Lumine.

What site do you use to post your maps to in order to be able to embed the photos into your Atlas posts? I used to use Photobucket but they've changed their terms and the free option is no longer an option.

Imgur, actually, works really well.

Please hold off on having an discussions or posting anything until I get the player crises posted, please. I don't want my prompts to be swayed by any PMs or discussions that have taken place.

Mexico is rebelling against Spain, not France...

While that is technically correct, everything that I gave been able to find indicates that Napoleon had direct control over affairs in Mexico, despite it technically being under Joseph's command, hence why I made it a French problem rather than a Spanish problem.

I wouldn't want to meddle too much, but I would have to point out all of the Spanish colonies outright refused to recognize Joseph as King and that the Napoleonic Empire never had any influence whatsoever in Mexico - perhaps there's a confusion of sources with Napoleon III's 1860's invasion? -, and indeed the Mexican War of the Independence was historically fought by the Spanish Loyalists, not the French.

This is terribly embarrasing on my part, but I have corrected the error.

Just to make sure I'm read this correctly, I'm rebelling against the Spanish, not the French, correct?

Correct. I, incorrectly, was reading source material on Napoleon III's intervention in Mexico, not the revolution sparked by Miguel Hidalgo.

It should also be noted that there was a whole bunch going on in the other Spanish colonies (except Peru and possibly Uruguay which I believe were entirely loyal) at the time. Argentina, for instance, was technically in revolution, though I think at this point in time the "revolutionary" side still claimed to be fighting for control in the name of Ferdinand VII against the officials appointed by the Spanish regency. I believe Chile and Columbia were in revolt as well, while the Venezuelan revolt had been crushed.

The whole thing was a mess due to everyone claiming right to rule for Ferdinand while he was imprisoned and it being difficult to tell who was really loyal to the crown  and who was just using Ferdinand as an excuse for independence from the mainland. I'd recommend looking into the ideas of Retroversion of Sovereignty and of the junta systems which were very important to the period. It really is an interesting time for the game's purpose for the game as it seems like almost any result could be possible in the Americas.

Sorry, but I think I'm going to have to drop out due to lack of time.

I am preparing for a trial on Friday so I apologize if I become less and less responsive as the week goes on.

My apologies for my slow start, my vacations started only yesterday afternoon and I was swamped with delivering my final reports. Orders will be sent within two hours.

Could you please re-send those to me? They must have gotten lost in the deluge of other PMs.

The turn ended at 7 AM this morning. I will accept the orders sent in up to this point, but anything sent at right now will be disregarded.

My sincere thanks! Next turn I'll be far more active and on point.
