The Battle for Canada
What is it about In the 17th century, an explorater called Jaques Cartier went on a sail to the west looking for an alternative road to india, as the Turk army (which was too powerful to war against) blocked the old trail to the east. He, after a few weeks, reached land. He then met the "indians" (Which he thought were the indians from india). He soon realised that he had not reached India, but an unexplored continent! After a few failed trips to find gold and spices, the king of France lost interest for this newly discovered, gigantic piece of land. And until a few other explorators discovered that Quebec (Which was called "Nouvelle - France" (New-France)) had a very profitable natural ressource. And this said ressource was the beaver. It's fur was the main reason companies (Which were given property of the land, at the only condition that they settle the land) settled there. They started making tons of profit.
And that's where the boring ends.
The companies got maybe a tenth of all it's fur from hunters. Who they really got it all from were the "Indians" (More precisely, the Iroquoians) who traded their fur for metal junk. The other main Indian tribu was the Algonkiens. They were france's enemies, and also led war against the Iroquoians. So some maps of the mod will feature the Algonkiens against the French settlers and the Iroquoians.
While the wars slowly calmed, another threat came. The English army, which had settled in southern america (Northern United States) were jealous of France's recurring ressource, the beaver. They wanted to take possession of the land and it's natural ressources. That's when the war between the French army and the English army. One of the maps featuring these battles will be a replica of the Abraham plains.
