News from the East

Herr Grüber has recently returned from an expedition into the previously uncharted East....

Leaving Bad Übersetzung in an easterly direction early on Tuesday morning he ventured boldly into what has subsequently been discovered to be the fabled realm of the The Electorate of Lindt und Lindor, ruled by the Elector Wilhelm von Sprungli-Schwarz. Some describe it as a the sweetest nation in Europe and her army mere "chocolate box soldiers".

After feasting upon the local delights Grüber ventured northwards into the Grand Duchy of Gross Wurttemstein, famous for its beer and sausage and ruled by the enigmatic GrossHerzog Florian Lothar von Wurttemstein. The Grand Duchy has a strong naval tradition (reputedly being the only nation in the region with a navy of any sort) although whether this navy actually exists is a subject of conjecture at this point.

Both these fledgling states may be found on the updated map in the Cartographer's Guild. Already there are diplomatic efforts in progress from Velikye Byelgorodniya, a situation likely to further increase tensions with Saxe-Coburn und Buchholz...


  1. But can the egregious Gruber be trusted to get this right? He's failed completely to take into account the Byelgorodniyan naval base at Oppressnikgrad!

  2. A most pleasant lecture in cultural and political geography!
