Hey everyone and welcome to the 18th developer diary for March of the Eagles!
Today we take a look at two rather different combatants – Sweden vs. Russia. These are two great Northern powers. Not a fair fight, you say? What do you mean? Sweden is the grandest nation of them all!
Wait, that's not very Jante now, is it? Forget I said that
(What's Jante? We'll explain that in a moment.)
Combatant 1: Sweden:
Once feared as the Lion of the North, when Sweden roared the Baltic trembled. Then the loss of the Great Northern War saw the Lion caged, doomed to pace inside its small prison, its roar now but a whimper. Sweden still holds a tiny part of piece of its once impressive German empire, but, at best, Sweden is a first-rate second-rate power. A colder Portugal, maybe.
The revolution in France has changed all that. Our jailers' eyes have turned to Paris and the bars of our cage are the brittlest they have ever been. Now is our chance, now is our time to come roaring back onto the world stage! If Sweden times its interventions wisely, it can use the French distraction to hassle a harried Prussia or Russia - and its once great armies could again be that extra weight one coalition needs to tip the scales in its favor.
