    For a moment here I thought that was a picture of the infamous "The Spy Who Clubbed Me" but turns out that fellow will come a bit later than Shoshon Konery.

    Dr No, No, Please Don't Club Me Again?

    I'm sorry, it was the best I could do. It's better than "You Only Live Once If You've Been Clubbed To Death". Yours was far better

    Still eager for the update

    Haha, I like those too, the first one is just too absurd Besides, you've got the correct spy unlike me. If you ignore that, you can go for stuff like "The Man with the Wooden Club", but with the right guy the best I can think of is "Clubs Are Forever". Although in Kanem Bornu's techgroup, I guess that's pretty close to accurate

    But nah, I prefer the one in my previous post because it sounds quite similar to the original.

    The Spy Who Clubbed Me, certainly a very infamous title indeed. He does come later and I believe is heavily influenced by Shoshon.

    Falastur - Hmmm, maybe its a bit too much

    Malurous - Haha, clubs are forever with our tech group certainly

    It did please Abu greatly to look across the newly found border with Songhai and see that they too were experiencing trouble with animists.


    It did not please Abu greatly to find that the animists having caused a stir in Songhai headed straight across the newly found border with Kanem Bornu and set about causing a stir there too.

    Kanem Bornu is to animists what flames are to moths

    Rebels were becoming an increasingly common problem for Kanem Bornu much to Abu's constant annoyance. There surely had to be a source of it all. So Shoshon Konery, Kanem Bornu's top spy was sent off in search of the answer that lay at the root of the rebel problem.

    Konery sets off

    In the meantime Abu reigned in the power of local officials even further. It was an effort to end dissent but inevitably led to more.


    Peasants in Kano


    Nationalists in Benin and of course the obligatory fight with native natives on the way

    The nationalists put up little fight in the end although Abu couldn't help but feel the name Apithy was a little misleading. If only the people were more apithetic about the changes he made things would be a lot better.


    Once again Abu made the most of the situation. Since the troops were already in place a declaration of war was sent to Oyo.

    Good to see Shoshon Konery on the job. Shame you couldn't direct those rebels at Oyo first, to save your clubs some heavy beating, but you can't have everything.

    Do you have any intention of colonising the open ground between Benin and Oyo and the Kanem Bornu mainland? Of course, it would somewhat remove a potential source of native native clubbing, but having a connected empire has to be a good thing, right? Indeed, can you colonise those provinces? I've never try an "uncivilised" country in EU3 so I'm not sure about the limitations, such as the cavalry etc.

    After defeating his Apathy, Abu finally goes after Oyo. Nice.

    Your marshal lets you know that someone in your government dowed Oyo?
    Konery surely is a brave man!

    Are you sure that is Konery in the screenie above? Looks more like Rogir Moo're.

    You've run out of bandwidth and it's delinked the images

    And coz - I was wondering that myself. Still, at least iirc, Rogir Moo're was at the time fighting those not so far from being Animists

    Certainly not! There are no blond spies in Kanem Bornu Shoshon was however in "Witch Doctor No", "Clubfinger" and "From Kongo with Love"

    Beware of technologically advanced spies...



    They have advanced Kanem Bornu's signature technology and combined it with some new ultra-high tech item...a shoe (whatever the hell that is)!

    Those Animists are nothing but bunch of trouble makers.

    But it's certainly good reason for a future war that those nasty foreigners in Songhai decided to send their animists to Kanem Bornu.

    Careful, though; I've seen Songhai field over 20k armies, enough to beat back even a small European force until attrition takes them down. Not that Duke's clubs aren't ferocious, or anything
