    The History of the British East India Company 1836-1920 - An AAR

    Yes..I Know..Im working on my Burma AAR...Dont worry about that..But I Feel like working on a Second AAR with VIP 0.3...With British India. I have been interested in playing them since I saw they were going to be in VIP 0.3. Nothing wrong with having a Second AAR, Is there?

    Plus..Expect a Suprise when the Mutiny comes around...

    Goals -
    Eh...Take Control of India and Areas that the EIC Has (Malaya, Aden...etc)
    Expand Even Farther...
    Try to out do England itself in Military and Regional Power.

    Basic Plans for British India...I'll start on this Later this week..Hope you Enjoy.

    I shall be watching this VERY closely. One warning, make sure to have a save in mid-1858 or so. There is a chance that when the post-1857 shakeout on the Mutiny occurs, an AI Britain will decide to annex you outright rather than allow you to carry on under crown rule as Vicky's viceroy.

    Note to self : Get to work on post-1857 events
    2014 will hopefully allow me to be more active with Paradox games than the last few years

    Looks intresting.

    Looks very interesting. You are a satellite of GB, correct? If so, how will you be able to conquer the world?

    India's a dominion, not a sattelite. That means they can conduct diplomatic deals with other nations.

    They aren't a satellite or a dominion. They had a full alliance, and probably AIs that tell them to be buddy buddy with each other (can have Britian fighting British India can we?) But PraetorianGuard has something better than artificial intelligence, so can do whatever he wants. Also, all the Indian minors that are usually Britain's satellites are instead BEI's satellites.

    The British East India Company is probably one of the most famous and sucessfull colonial companies during the Era of Colonialization. The Company was founded around the same time The Dutch, Portugese and French begun making ports on the Indian coasts. Within 100 years, The British East India Company became the leading power in the region. It soon overpowerd the Other Nations and became the only Company left by the early 1800's.

    This is the Story of the Glory Years of the British East India Company. The "Jewel in the Crown" of the British Empire.

    The Promiment Members of the British East India Company

    Geroge Eden


    George Eden was a political figure in England until being appointed General - Governer of India in 1835. George was dedicated to expanding Commerical Industry and Native Schools in India. However, This would be challenged by another task, Overthrow the Princely States of India.

    After retiring from India, He was appointed the Lord of Admirality in Britian in 1846 and held office until his death in 1849.


    Edward Law


    Edward Law suceeded George Eden as the Governer - General of India. He had a solid Political History back in Britian and took part in Wellington's government in Foreign Office.

    Hendy Hardinge


    Henry Hardinge was the Third Sucessor of the General - Governer of India during this period. He also took part in Politics back in the United Kingdom and was a member of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars.

    The Political Situation in 1839


    When 1839 came around, The British East India Company Dominated most of Bengal, Bombay and East India. They had Three Bengali Regiments, A Queen's Regiment, The Mahdrhas Army and The Bombay Army. The Remaining Indian Kingdoms were merely puppets of the British Empire and The British East India Company.

    However, George Eden was determened to over throw these Kingdoms. He saw these as a Threat to the Growth of the Company and it's Industry. He prepared his army for Wars that would come in the following years.

    (Next Update Tomorrow or Tuesday...Sorry this didn't include any of the game..But it will next time.)

    I remain very interested in this AAR, and my hope is to see it continued soon.

    Since I am invested, I will share with you a tidbit of information gleaned from another AAR...

    Watch out for the Saxons! For more info, check out: German Minor Saxony AAR

    They may try to take you over. Be wary!
