    Hey all!

    I just wanted to take a quick moment to ask people here if and what kind of Paradox game they'd like to play. I'm looking to start hosting some sessions, but wanted to ask around for what interests people before I do. I have all DLCs for HoI IV & CK3, and am happy to pay for a subscription for all the EU IV DLCs.

    Further, know that I am perfectly happy to host with mods as well!

    Here are my own personal ideas of what could be fun:
    - Crusader Kings 3, with the AGOT mod. Vanilla is fun too, of course. I haven't really tried many other total conversions, but I've been wanting to try the Lord of the Rings one too.
    - Hearts of Iron. I can honestly go anywhere. Millennium Dawn is great, if a little complex. I do generally play with at least Road to '56. There are a host of others that I've played too though, so feel free to speak up.
    - Stellaris is also a fun game, with and without mods.
    - EU IV. Again, I can probably do a lot with this but I'd like to hear from y'all.

    Please let me know if any of this interests you, or if you have suggestions. I'd love to hear it all.

    One thing I should mention is that I myself am located in Europe, so whatever I host will likely be on the weekends only in the evenings for myself.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this!

    Hey Ghostlool,

    Back in the day - at least 2/3 years from now, there was a very specific audience who would play Hearts of Iron / Stellaris and possibly CK3. The audience was limited to these players I guess despite being inviting and Bedders hosted these very frequently.

    I'm unsure if he still hosts them since or the community and players have moved on to other titles or possibly on a break.

    I've also hosted Stellaris in the past but I'd totally be up for HoI4 or Stellaris games.

    HoI4 - Old world blues is also a good mod

    I do have Stelaris (and a few of the Star Trek Mods), haven't played it too much so basically still a noob at it but would be up for a game if one came around. But Stelaris is the only one I've got right now.

    Well, I know I am happy to help you out if you want to join a HoI event! I'm sure everyone else is too.

    I think the general consensus leans toward either Hearts of Iron (I think I'd do an Old World Blues one when I start the first) or Stellaris. Thanks for your input all!

    I play CK3 and Stellaris. I have HOI4 but it confuses the hell out of me. I know Miah and I plan to start a private Stellaris game, should prolly get going on that.
    If you want, I can run a HoI4 coop game with you so you can learn, it can be fun.

    I like CK3, and HoI4, their new 4x CIV clone looks interesting.

    I don't usually play with mods, just like ice-cream, vanilla is my favourite.

    Well, I know I am happy to help you out if you want to join a HoI event! I'm sure everyone else is too.

    I would be down for Old World Blues
