Chapter Five: Shaking of the Dust (1375-1380)
It's been some time since I played last on this save, some things came up and had a snowball effect, but now I am confident I'll be able to continue.
Well, enough of that, our current situation isn't to good, my ruler has a diplomatic skill of 3 along with the deceitful trait that gives +0,5 infamity a year I GAIN 0,20 infamity every year he is on the throne. In other words, time to hire a diplomat. The military side isn't to good either, I have a forcelimit of 26 regiments, but a manpower gain of only 364 men a month. With a little over 7500 men left to replenish that equals 2-3 years of peace, eventhough I want a war straight away to try to get rid of my stupid ruler.
Other than that things are looking bright, we have a mission to take the single province of Tajima from our northeastern neighbours, who's capital Izumo
is a core of ours. Also, Imagawa, Toki and Ashikaga have all weak heirs, meaning that I could potentially form PU's with them.
Toki's heir dies in early 1375, seeing as their Daimyo has ruled since 1742, it means he is atleast 48 years old. A royal manage quickly followed up with a Claim on Throne is sent.
Just a few years later Daimyo Yoriyasu Toki dies without a heir, giving us a Personal Union with them. They are currently at war with a OPM that I'm sure they will annex.
Yamana has been fighting a war with Akamatsu, their Daimyo died just a few months ago and the new doesn't have a heir, I wait for them to finish up the war with Akamatsu, where they take 2 provinces, bringing them up to a total of five.
The Ouchian war for the Yamanan Throne starts in 1378. I also get a slider move, where I take one step innovated.
During the war some rebels decide to pop up.
In early 1380 the war ends, the result is a personal union with Yamana.
We have positive relations with both of our personal unions at the end of 1380, and with that I will end this update with the hope that my hopeless Daimyo dies soon. Shimazu claims the throne of Akamatsu, it is possible that I will look into the matter of yet another succesion war in the near future.
State of Ouchi, 1380.
