Sliding westward, we see that Kruger has taken Carthage while Pedro claims Coimbra for Brazil. Where the sea was once littered with orange ships, only lime and drab purple hues remain. If nothing else, this coalition could stop now and claim success by securing the safety of Europe for a while longer. I get the feeling that isn’t good enough for the aggressors involved, and we have a lot more excitement to come. Besides, Braga and Goa still need attention before that claim can properly be made.
