Hello and it seems like it's been a while since i wrote on here! Some of you may remember that i was going to do an Explorer Route Story and indeed i am! However i will not be doing Ferdinand Magellan, i will be Doing another Portuguese Explorer the great Vasco da Gama, one of the greatest Portuguese People to have ever Lived!

Well this will only be an introduction as i haven't been able to find additional African Leagues to download yet and that is an essential part of this story! If any of you have additional african Leagues you'd like to share please do! Whenever i do i will start this! For now a good old Benfica save will do!

So enough of me Rambling unto the Story itself!!

This is the Man at the center of it!! Here is some Background into what he actually did!
http://www.bbc.co.uk...ama_vasco.shtml


Retrato_de_Vasco_da_Gama_zps22ad4168.png
Full Name: Vasco da Gama
Born-Died: 1460 (Sines, Portugal) - 1524 ( Kochim, India)
Viceroy of India and First Explorer To discover the Maritime way to India (Commander of First Ships to Sail from Europe to India)
(Basically a hell of a dude)


The Save will Aim to emulate His Route to India and Back to Portugal! Starting in Lisbon i will make my way into os Acores (Or the Azores in English) unto Cape Verde Down all the way to South Africa. Along the way we will pass through many african Countries (and of course Leagues) end up in Calicut! Then back getting past Madagascar (If possible)back trough Africa Ending up In Lisbon where ideally i'd end up with Benfica however unlikely that is!

I have no set rules really apart from i would like to win something with Every club i manage! Failing that atleast leave them in a position where they'd be able to remain competitive and Financially stable!
The one rule of course is do the Journey in the right order otherwise it would be a Farce really ;)!

If you want to know more about him here's the Wikipedia page to the man himself! If you have any questions about this then i'd be more than happy to answer!

Thanks for reading and i look forward to starting this hopefully in the very near future

Hi Pedro!

 

Football and history is the best way forward I think! The toughest challenge will be trying to find all those leagues and fingers crossed they work if not it can be a smaller journey through the leagues available either way is going to be great I think!

 

Boa Sorte Pedro!

Obrigado Pedro! ahahaah poderia mas era mais controverso xD
I know i've already seen that in action! They always tend to become very strong in most FM saves i've played!
Ordem e Progresso ;)

 

Good luck, the challenge in the African leagues will be interesting

Cheers Matt! It certainly will ;)

 

Seems like a tough challenge, good luck.

Cheers Gaurav i am sure it will be!

Boa Sorte Pedro!

I agree with that! Somke of the best saves i've read usually have some history to them! Your Amazing Pentagon springs to mind! I agree it will be tough!!

Obrigado Ana and thanks for the kind words!

 

Good Luck. :)

Thanks Wick :)


 

So guys i have found most of the leagues apart from the Somalian and Cape Verde ones! But as i've recently found you can create leagues in the editor of the game! I'll have a try at creating these and test them  and if they work properly then i will be set to go!

Thanks for the comments as well!

Great idea mate, sounds like really intriguing. Hopefully you can find those African leagues, how about managing the national teams if you cant?

Hey guys, FINALLY, i have found the leagues needed to start this! However this update will only cover the Set-up of the game with the first update coming (hopefully) tomorrow!

To recap this will be the journey!

Departure from Portugal- Cape Verde- South Africa-  Zambia- Zimbabwe- India
Return from India- Mozambique- Kenya -Ghana- Portugal
So a few African leagues involved which should hopefully be a lot of fun!

This is how is set up the start! Obviously only Portugal and Cape Verde to start so there isn't an overload of leagues to start with! The others will be added on when required!

se-up_zps31cdbb0d.png

Obviously i will start with a Sunday League Reputation as well as far as i'm aware his managing experience was either very little or most likely absolutely none! Also the birth date 1453 is not available in the game oddly enough so 1988 which is the closest to my birth date will do!

So the challenge starts!

If you do well in Portugal then it'll set you up very nicely for the rest of the journey. Good luck Vasco Da Gama!
