Hey I think that slavery thing of yours should start to weaken around now. Decades of endless cotton production should start to ruin the soul and domestic opposition should be rising.
that's what the african colony is for. Ivory Coast has large cotton reserves, and I intended to use that to isolate the CSA from Europe and starve them of trade, but seeing as that is no longer feasible, so I guess I'm just selling cotton now. really, the only strategic reason the UK would have to ally the confederacy is is they want to invade me, because the south has no resources the UK doesn't and that's their most strategic military position.
Hey guys I have unfortunate news, as you know I've been in and out of RP, and I'm being a little overwhelmed at the moment with life and different regions multi-tasking, and I think I need a break. I'm not quitting god-forbid that, but with school and the other regions I'm in, I need to take some time away from RP in general and focus on what I'm already dealing with, but I'm definitely going to be online guys and talk, I just can't RP at the same time right now. I hope you all understand.
also, runaway slaves con go pretty much go anywhere else and be home free, meaning more will try to escape
Hey, I will be back IDK how long but it's not like I'm disappearing forever, I just need to reorganize myself and deal with stuff like school first.
Cottons a pretty important resource, it was a big thing for economies back then and was the biggest thing for clothing. You don’t want a nation full of old and ragged clothing.
Even if he didn’t want to we would have to lol
Also I doubt we are gonna find a Germany player
Yes of course, and when I come back and we have a Germany that needs me, you can always count on me!
Problem is everyone already has a nation they want to stick with. We are gonna need a new player from a place like IoC
the one on Austria, IOC's leader or whatever they are, has expressed interest in playing germany, but that just leaves an open austria, and they aren't the most consistent at RP
then we use linen, or we import silk, and there are most definitely wool suits
It was more music theory, but I did get to experiment with piano and ukulele. I hated string instruments. Piano is more my speed.
Again, I wasn't gonna say s**t as long as I got my money. It's his choice to be buddy-buddy with me. I can retcon joining if it makes things easier.
One: we've industrialized and adapted slavery to fit industrialization much like how the Union and Britain did it with immigrants and poor rural workers. Two: It is slowly becoming less and less profitable, but the Southern planter class is ruthless and is pulling some incredibly tricky diplomatic favors to keep slavery on top. Plus, selling my slave-produced goods to the UK and France is making me and the planters some mad bank. On top of that, I already planned for slavery to go away only until I get bent over sideways by the Yanks in ww1. Until then, slavery will slowly become less and less profitable, slave revolts will become more likely, etc, but ww1 is the catalyst for the abolition. In short, as long as I'm making bank, I'm not getting rid of it. Period.
