The wargaming campaign itself is based on a real WSS episode, so that I've chosen to keep real names while the campaign is still runnning, and switching to imagi-names once it comes to an aftermath (so that you won't be reading "Galatea" anywhere in my Imagi-Nation blog yet: what-if-catalonia.blogspot.com)
It might seem a little odd choice to let my What-if-Nation be born some 30-40 years before Europa's "current" time, but I've thought it nice to actually game it, instead of writing a long, epic, and presumably boring story on my blog -which would have proved too difficult for me, for English is not my native language, so that I hardly would be able to produce a nicely written enough story...
Besides, I believed it exciting to leave you a real chance to muse with such an open window to your own Imagi-Nations near "past", so that you were able to plan any kind of imagined plots or diplomacies around my campaign and, by this, to actually influence my What-if-Nation "future" attitudes -and, besides, to add some supplementary background for your "contemporary" policies and conflicts. So that I formally invite you, not just to follow my campaign but to actively participate in it, the most fun way you believe.
Well, it's a mistery to me where is all this going to, but it was worth to be given a chance! I am still uncertain about a date for the campaign start but, at present, I've already finished an hex grid map and a campaign rules draft -which can be checked at my blog- and my next step will be producing OOB's and characters.
Wish you find it fun!
