Basileus, was puritan colony influenced by your religiuous upbringing or were this rules and behaviour of real puritan colonists?

What would they fight over? AFAIK, the flashpoints that led to the Anglo-Spanish conflicts of the fifteen and sixteen hundreds don't exist. I don't think they're competing for colonies (or the produce thereof), and while I'm hazy on the state of Latin Christianity ITTL, I don't think the Reformation equivalent has quite kicked off yet. Or if it has, it's not as bloody as OTL. Of course, that's probably because Rhomania is holding the position that Spain did OTL as the hegemon of, for now at least, wherever they choose to be the hegemon, which is a practice that tends to put target signs on your back.i´m only on page 85,but i have question has there been full on scale war between castille-portugal and triune,if not will there be one,who do you are putting your hopes to win.
I really don't see Rhome expanding into the Atlantic very much, but will make itself known. As long as there is a Friend in Mexico, Rhoman ships will prowl, and Jamaica could be it's jewel. Blue Mountain coffee isn't the best in the world because of marketing. But I agree the Pacific and the route it takes there is where Rhome will benefit most. Everything they will need in the coming ages will come from there, rare spices to eventual industrial resources. If Rhome can control even just Ceylon, the Heraklean (Philippines) and Indonesia, they will be doing great. A Rhoman Despotate of Australia? Look out.The Rhomans would have difficulties expanding into the Atlantic, as they can't reinforce their position there without either going the long way around, or risking battle with the Triunes in 'their' backyard. The Pacific, though, is also full of opportunities when they would start focusing on expanding there(as soon as the Rhomans aren't just going from one war to the next).
New World fortifications are actually pretty neat. Most follow your typical colonial mould designed for gunpowder but they're just forts and don't actually comprise a wall around a settlement. Those were out of fashion. So the few that do survive, and even fewer from the 1600s, are incredibly unique. The city walls of Louisborg (reconstructed), Quebec (survived), and Montreal (some foundations survived) are the only three examples in all of Canada but there are forts all over the place. Same's true of the US and the rest of the Americas. It would be hilarious if one of the few examples of an actual city wall on the continent gets torn down by Mexicans.
People sitting around a fire and discussing how they want their world to look oftentimes are more important than the mightiest of kings. Kings come and kings go but small discussions can lead to ideas that outlive empires.It is an unlikely trio, a pudgy friar, a tall red-bearded sergeant, and a Greek priest, but the three sit and talk around the fire. As generals and kings move their forces on the chessboard of the world, as empires and peoples send forth all their might and majesty into battle, these three insignificant men sit and discuss the world. The world as it is, and the world as it should be.
