A blog detailing the travails of the Imagination of Blagovia, a small country in the 18th Century Balkans, as it strives to overcome its hated arch nemesis the Banat of Tôtûn-Bey, vassal of the Sublime Porte, and the machinations of its greedy neighbour Leutonia -an erstwhile ally against the Turks, enemy of Blagovia's ally Nabburg, and a fellow client state of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The New Year approaches, and there is a sense of excitement in the air. The rumours of an imminent invasion of Nabburg by Luetonia are rampant. Even Blagovia has heard that something is afoot, and the coffee shops of Starigrad are rife with speculation and conspiracy theories, to borrow a contemporary term. However, the one thing no one has been able to answer is how Luetonia will invade, seeing as they do not share a border with Nabburg...
I would like wish everyone a Happy New Year, and I hope that 2020 is a grand year for all visitors to Blagovia.
As winter settles in it's time for feasts, a gathering of families, and reflection. Although it has been quiet on the blog front, things have been busy in Blagovia, Nabburg, Luetonia, and all the other Imagi-Nations in that part of Central Europe where Duke Borislav, and King Schmenge call home. Rumours of war, and intrigues are ripe, and it looks as the upcoming year may be one of conflict. More on that later... For now, His Grace wishes all of you, and yours, a wonderful holiday, and a Merry Christmas!
