    The tale of Rashid I Jalayirid 1708-1714 (Part 2/6)



    The first thing besides the war that our new Sultan was worried with was our realms nobles, they wanted to pressure our Sultan to give in to their demands due to us being at war, as expected our leader did not oblige and the nobles spread vicious rumours and destabilized our realm as a result.



    We got a report from Europe saying the the tiny country of Hamburg had laid a claim to the Austrian throne.



    Our leader followed up our plan of getting Bohemia out of the war in order to free the northern front, we bribed them with a small indemnity of a mere 25 ducats.






    Since the Bohemians gave up the war, many countries followed and soon only Venice and Austria forced to continue the war, while Magdeburg soon peaced out.



    Also we have reports indicating that the Austrians themselves are troubled with revolts.



    Austria is forced to give a humiliating peace to the Swiss, losing Tirol and much cash.



    Our dear Sultan is most skilled in the art of combat, and as such he favors Quality in his troops.



    Without ever facing the French in battle, the war ends in a white peace.



    Our land technology gives us a stronger cavalry.



    Our troops can nearly reach Vienna, and aren't far from the city now, however the war has taken it's toll and the country is yearning for peace.



    Our Sultan realises that the war has reached the point where he can demand what he wants from the Austrians, and even though the armies are standing near the Austrian capital he demands that we make peace with them, in his own words, "There is no reason to continue the war, even if we reach Vienna we can't gain anything more, our people and theirs, have suffered enough. It's time to end this, this great victory for our country will be in the honor of the memory of the former Sultan, as it was he that made it all possible. We will continue his efforts, to make us even greater!"



    These are the conditions of peace, in the three provinces they will keep in Turkey, we have planted rebels.




    Overextension happens as a result of extremely quick rebels (Only took days for some reason, enlighten me anyone?)



    Now that the war is over, we can introduce Rashids heir. Ahmad Jalayirid!



    Also, Banten defects to us, a province in the middle of nowhere.

    The tale of Rashid I Jalayirid 1714-1719 (Part 3/6)



    After finishing the war with the Austrians we get some technological advansements.



    As Northern Africa is Arabic culture, our Sultan decided that we should try to expand westward in order to take them in under our rule, starting with our neighbour.



    The war lasts a mere four months before they are annexed.



    We also incite rebels in western Turkey going for them to defect to us.



    We also work hard with our missionaries to convert the infidels to the true faith.



    Our army is the glory of our country, bringing us prestige.



    Our Sultan decides to create another buffer zone between us and Moscow, by vassalising Khiva.



    The war lasts three months before they are force-vassalised.



    In order to continue our advances in North Western Africa we declare war on Algier, with the goal of taking two provinces. We also reach yet another technological advancement with 39 production and 28 trade.



    Peace with the Algerians is made in December 1717 and leader Songhai is peaced out a few days later.



    There seem to be patriots in the third British province in Turkey, but as it's greek culture we don't keep our hopes up.



    Smugglers are found, and stopped in early 1718.




    Our statesman dies, and is replaced by four star natural scientist.



    Our missionaries converts yet another province, along with another tech advance in land.

    Wow, fantastic gains against Austria! Don't worry about the former sultan, he was speaking figuratively .

    We almost have all the territories of the Achaemenid Empire! Also, if we conquer a bit more of North Africa, I think we will equal the Umayyad Caliphate... oh no wait, we'd have to conquer Spain

    I shudder to think what the infamy (and potentially WE) will be when I, or whoever plays next, gets the turn. No seriously, great gains, and a nice trick with the rebels in Anatolia.

    Did we get a border with Castille in North Africa? If so, I guess that area will need a heavy garrison.

    Is Ak Koyunlu (that's what it is, right?) available for annexation? It's starting to look out of place now that we have the surrounding land.

    Hehe, I'll try to keep both reasonable, yes we did get a border with Castille in North Africa, as they also have a province in Turkey I'm going for a taking their North Africa holdings along with that province.

    Yes, that's Ak Koyunlu or however you spell it, already tried twice failed both times. As for the heavy garrison I recruited 2*24 regiments to protect and take land in that area.
    I'll have the fourth and possibly fifth part up in a little while.

    The tale of Rashid I Jalayirid 1719-1723 (Part 4/6)



    We continue our plan to gain dominance in North Africa with Aquileia coming next as they have three provinces in the area.



    Eventhough they call in allies it should still be a easy match.



    Land tech 40 is reached in May 1720.



    Peace is made in December 1720, with us gaining the target provinces.



    The next target on the list is Castille, they have been on the decline and have also been hurt in a war vs France so this should also be easy.



    Also get a new mission to vassalize Etophia.



    The Castilliean troops are just as fragile as the Austrian troops and as such we have no problems taking them out.



    Yet another technological advance, this time in Naval reaching 29.



    We wanted to ask Fez for military access in order to reach the remaining Castillian provinces.



    As they deny us, eventhough it might be considered tyranical we declared war on them aswell.



    While in the war a province converts.



    The peace with Castille, total gain of five provinces as it would take forever to build the transports required to attack the mainland.



    The peace with Fez, a total annexation was demanded, four provinces gained.



    We gain a core along with more technological advancements.




    Two of the three British provinces defect to us. (Also kinda visible gains in Africa)

    Wow, great gains! Anatolia almost ours, North Africa falling too... the 18th century is turning out to be the Jalayirids' greatest hour!

    Btw, I looked up where that Java province came from. It was colonised under Husain II (Cade Shadow) around 1650, then lost to Aquileia about 10 years later in a war with Austria, Alsace and Aquileia. See here. I believe we have to rectify the Aquileian injustice!

    Well, we did just take three of their African provinces, but I guess kicking them out of Java would be a suitable punishment?

    I'll see if I can get it done, no promises though as I have to build up some cogs for that to work

    Well, don't prioritise it... just when you have the chance... . You'll need to build some cogs anyway if you want to defeat Castille again.

    The tale of Rashid I Jalayirid 1723-1725 (Part 5/6)



    Our Sultan continued his reign of war with a declaration against Etiophia.



    Peace was made a month after, Etiophia was vassalized and we lost 2 Infamity also we forced some terms on the Mamluks.



    Our new mission is to vassalize Khorasan, as the troops are already in place that should be another swift war.



    Algiers also joined Etiophia giving us the chance to force terms on them aswell.



    Then in February 1724 the time has come to vassalize Khorasan.



    Our military oriented Sultan makes yet another move towards quality and gains a one star commandant.



    Peace is made with Khorasan in April 1724.



    Next up, vassalization of Tunisia.



    In July 1724, Songhai the leader of the Etiophia war peaces out with us.



    Soon after it is Tunisia's turn to become our vassal.



    As usual, peace is made the next month.



    What?!



    Algiers butts into the war with Tunisia as well, this is the result.




    Great Britain has 209 ships, we have 72 with a naval forcelimit of around 100. Sorry, but this one I cancel as I have no idea if we had any rules against it.



    Five of our provinces core.

    I'll do it if I get the time, focusing on finishing up North Africa and plan to take back cores before doing it, if I have time, infamity and troops to spare I'll probably do it. The remaining British province is a core and Rajaputana has the other.

    Do as you please, you're the Sultan .

    Btw no, I don't think we have any rules against mission-cancelling... I did it in the very first turn, too.

    Wow, you guys are really making up for the lost time with these frequent updates!

    Good bunch of missions to fix the infamy after the conquering spree. Loved the reason for the DoW on Fez, they can only blame themselves clearly!

    The rebellions seem to have worked well.

    I am actually finished now, just finishing up the last update and waiting for the timer to end as there is a one hour limit between updates or so? Will add savegame at the bottom. I also had something pretty interesting happening during the last few years.

    Mind posting the last part for me, or delete my post and repost if I end up being inside the limit? I have to go soon as I am waiting to be picked up and then I'm of for a 6+ hour ride depending on different things. So might take some time, anyways, here is the save.

    EDIT: Nvm, I made it.

    The tale of Rashid I Jalayirid 1725-1728 (Part 6/6)



    We continue our "quest" to take Northern Africa, the next victim being Morrocco.



    War was declared in January, peace is signed in March.



    Apperantly our Sultan have great artists.



    Our army reformer dies and is replaced by a five star diplomat on the 12th of November 1725.



    Then on 8th of December 1725 this happens.



    It's also decided that it's time to pick of that single portuguese province.



    In February 1726 we reach land tech 43 and new troops!



    Peace is signed with Portugal six months after the war began.



    In January 1727 we start the war for Trebizon against GB.



    We also gain two levels of production tech.



    Fez has reformed from the two Castillian provinces, war is declared immideatly.



    War is won three months later with annexation as the result. War with GB is still on.



    Then on the 26th of June 1728, Rashid dies and Ahmad III Jalayirid takes the throne. Thus is this the end of his tale.



    Current state of the Jalayirids, not shown the province in the Java region.




    Some statistics:
    Income: 631.1 (up from 451.6)
    Army: 227 (up from 145)
    Navy: 100 (up from 76)
    Tech: 34/42/29/29/43 (up from 33/32/26/27/34)
    Stab: +3 (up from +2)
    No. of provinces gained: 34 (If I have counted correctly, gained trough defections, annexations etc.)

    Infamity: 10.6
    War Exhaustion: 2.19

    Sorry that you will have to start with some Infamity, however war exhaustion is pretty low, due to my agressivity I never reached zero I think. Also there is a bunch of transports to the east of Alexandria. Here is the save.
