EU4 - Development Diary - 26th of September 2017

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

  • Europa Universalis 4: Emperor
Good afternoon all. While time's relentless march shows no sign of slowing and we are pulled closer to the bleak white embrace of winter, we can at least take solace that Tuesday has rolled around once again, and we can indulge in another Dev Diary for Europa Universalis IV.

I want to start off talking about the titular changes for the 1.23 Persia Update. As the name and previous diaries have shown, we've given quite the overhaul to the Persia region and I want to take a closer look at what has changed. For a more in-depth analysis of the map changes that have happened, I would recommend checking out the old dev diary @Trin Tragula wrote last month, which I will be plagiarizing borrowing slightly from for today.

It's a tricky time in Persia for the Timurid Empire. Ajam is considered an independent nation and the vassals Tansoxiana, Sistan, Khorasan, Fars and Afghanistan are chafing under the rule of the old and sickly Shah Rukh. So long as he lives, there is a great reduction to the liberty desire of these vassals but when he dies, the Timurid Empire is likely to fall into a long and costly civil war.

We're happy with the changes we have made in the region to model this, and have felt that the key players in the region were deserving of their own National Ideas. Note that some nations will share ideas with others in the area due to their similarities

Ajam: Independent nation, starting development: 93

QOM_ideas = {
Traditions = {
diplomats = 1
production_efficiency = 0.1
}
Ambition = {
diplomatic_upkeep = 1
}


qom_jibal = {
When the Arabs once came to Persia they dubbed our region Jibal, the mountains, as the many mountains of the Zagros and Alborz ranges is what defines it. On the western border of greater Iran the region is the gateway between the states of the Turkic Caucasus and Greater Iran.\nYet Jibal is not all mountains, for in the basins lie a number of Iran’s oldest and greatest cities and between these basins passes and roads connect the urban population of our Empire. As the empires before us, from the ancient Medes to the Timurids, we must fortify passes and patrol the roads as well as we can, as they are the lifeline of our state.

defensiveness = 0.2
}
in_honor_of_ali = {
Regardless of if they consider themselves Sunni or Shia, the great majority of our subjects honor the Imams, the family of Muhammad and even Ali. While this conviction is regarded as a weakness by some legal scholars it is something that unites our people, be they Sufi mystics, regular Sunnis, Alevis or Twelver Shias.

tolerance_heretic = 3
}
qom_legacy_of_the_ilkhans = {
For hundreds of years Iran and the Caucasus have been dominated by Turkic warriors. They have made up the military foundation of a number of states such as those of the Ilkhanate, Seljuks or more recently the Timurids. Ajam sits at the very center of the greater Turko-Persian region, and for this reason it was here that the Ilkhans once constructed their capital at Sultaniyya. Today the Ilkhans are long gone but their monuments and their traditions remain, in Sultaniyya their mausoleum still bear witness to the empire that once was.\nIf we want to dominate this region we must embrace the Ilkhanate ideals of kingship, and win the loyalty of the Turkic warriors that still dwell here.

land_morale = 0.1
}
qom_persian_language_and_court_culture = {
High Persian culture remains a constant through the ages, no matter which conquerors come and go. Iran has fallen many times, but in the end it is Persian language and culture that spread to their homelands. From Anatolia to Samarkand, and even Bengal, it is the tongue of Hafiz and Rumi that will open doors to traders, politicians and scholars.

diplomatic_reputation = 1
envoy_travel_time = -0.25
}
qom_tribes_of_iraq_e_ajam = {
These lands have been dubbed Iraq-e Ajam, or Foreign Iraq, by outsiders and is dominated by Persian citydwellers and Turkic warriors brought by the Mongols, Seljuks and Timurids. On the outskirts of the great settlements, however, a great number of groups of nomads and semi-nomads traverse and populate the region, Arabs, Turkomans, Baluch, Kalaj and Bedouin. Some have been here for centuries, others arrived more recently, all of them have traditionally been left mostly to their own devices. We should make use of these groups in our defences, as none knows the Persian countryside better than they do.

fort_maintenance_modifier = -0.1
global_manpower_modifier = 0.1
}
reform_the_diwan = {
#Same as Timurids
}
qom_shahanshah = {
"To this day the legacy of the Persian Empire lives in the form of the kingly title Shah, used by Persianate rulers everywhere. We must unite the entire Iranian people under our ruler, Shahanshah, the King of Kings."

frs_land_of_the_persians = {
In many countries Persia and Persians, derived from Fars and Farsis, are the names used to refer to all of Iran. So important has our impact on the culture and economy of this region been. From the foothills of the Zagros mountains to the coasts of the Persian Gulf, the lands of Fars harbors some of the oldest and most famous cities of Iranians and Iranian culture.

tolerance_own = 2
}
frs_center_of_religion_and_philosophy = {
For centuries Fars and Shiraz has been a vibrant center of philosophy, theology and culture, attracting the great thinkers of its age from all over the Persianate and Islamic world. We must not squander this heritage, let us continue to patronize the arts, literature and theology so that we can continue to shine as the brightest jewel in Persia.

adm_tech_cost_modifier = -0.1
}
frs_diplomatic_prudence = {
frs_diplomatic_prudence_desc:0 "Where other regions have been quick to support new rising conquerors, or quick to surrender with armies outside of their walls, Fars has often favored a more careful and balanced approach. The key to survival in a dangerous world is not to surrender as soon as we are threatened, but it is also not to go looking for a fight that we don’t yet know who will win. As new claimants to supremacy in Persia come and go we will carefully consider our options. Our people will be here long after any newcomers are gone, regardless of if they win or lose their petty conflicts."

improve_relation_modifier = 0.2
}
frs_shirazi_wine = {
Legend has it that it was in Persia wine was once discovered. A girl, having lost the favor of king Jamshid, drank the fermented grape juice in order to end her life. Instead she found the secret of wine and in little time it spread from the royal court.\nWine has been produced and consumed in Persia for millennia, but none can compete with those made from the excellent grapes cultivated on the terraced slopes of the Zagros mountains in Fars. The reputation of Shirazi wine has spread far beyond the borders and is greatly in demand even in India and Europe.\nWe must expand our irrigation system and do what we can to increase our wine production, while marketing our highly sought after goods on foreign markets.

production_efficiency = 0.1
}
frs_shirazi_school = {
As a center of learning it is perhaps no wonder that the workshops of Fars have risen to fame for the great output of books and miniature paintings. Famous master painters and bookmakers have always settled in our cities and enjoyed our protection.\nThe Shirazi school can only blossom with lavish support to create more books, however, and that is something we must provide if we are not to be overshadowed by Indian or Azerbaijani bookbinders and painters.

embracement_cost = -0.1
prestige = 0.5
}
frs_integrate_the_qashqai = {
While Fars is home to many sedentary Persians, and great cities and industries, it is also populated by large groups of nomadic tribesmen. The Qashqai and other groups have often been at odds with the city dwellers, leading to expensive conflicts between the two that does not benefit the realm.\nWe must integrate the Qashqai and give them place in our cities while guaranteeing their rights to use land for grazing. In return we ask that our ruler will be consulted for the appointment of new Ilkhans, their traditional leaders.

global_manpower_modifier = 0.15
}
frs_capital_for_an_empire = { #The Zand Ambition
With its close proximity to the gulf trade routes, its great importance to Persian culture and its relative safety from the enemies of our people, Fars is an ideal place from which to rule a Persian state. Let us take inspiration from the great Empires before us and create a capital worthy to this name. We must expand and renovate every part of the capital, building new canals for irrigation, public baths, bazaars, city walls, squares, palaces, mosques, madrassahs and gardens.\nAll who wish should be allowed space to settle here for this will be the greatest capital man has ever seen!

kho_land_of_the_rising_sun = {
With large deserts, high mountains and large tribal communities, Khorasan might seem like an inhospitable place. Yet it is here, at the crossroads of Central Asia, Iran and India that many empires have chosen to base their capitals. Under Shah Rukh the region has prospered in relative stability, and the from the markets of Herat to the shrines of Mashhad we have built a reputation as the home of both great scholars, and thriving cities.

diplomatic_reputation = 1
}
kho_rein_in_the_turko_mongol_emirs = {
The majority of our armies are still made up of the tribesmen that Timur brought with him to this region. By organizing these troops in a more centralized manner than his predecessor, Timur strengthened his military power but he also made these Turko-Mongol emirs very powerful men in their own right. Where he was able to command their loyalty through personal gratitude and marriages we need to win their support in more long term ways.

army_tradition = 0.5
}
kho_princely_appanages = {
A realm as diverse and geographically divided as Khorasan can be hard to hold together. Often provincial governors will have to act quickly and with little chance to ask the center for instruction. It is essential that we have governors that we can trust both in terms of loyalty and ability.\nThe Timurid/Genghisid practice of putting the princes of the dynasty in such positions would likely serve us well, every governor will be motivated to do the most of his position if he has hope to inherit the throne himself.

global_manpower_modifier = 0.1
}
kho_dynastic_chronicles = {
Khorasan has a long history as a center of scholarly learning, and our hold over this land is new and untested. Let us fund the great scribes of the age, allowing them to compose the greatest chronicles of our age, firmly establishing our house as the leading dynasty of Eastern Persia.

legitimacy = 1
}
kho_irrigation_network = {
Agriculture comes at great cost in Khorasan, the land is dry and there are no major rivers to speak of. Our Persian administrators are suggesting that if our cities are to reach their full potential we will have to invest in a great number of irrigation works and cannals. With enough water even the rarest fruits can be grown from Herat to Mashhad and we can build gardens to the envy of all of Asia.

global_trade_goods_size_modifier = 0.1
}
kho_great_sheiks_of_khorasan = {
These lands are home to many Sufi shrines, orders and their lineages. The great Sheiks often take an active part in the social and political life in our society, and their influence stretches far from our borders. Even the faraway rulers of India patronizes Khorasani Sheiks of the Chisti or Naqshbandi Sufis, and Great Sultans send letters hoping to lure our wise sages to their courts.

tolerance_own = 2
}
kho_protect_the_caravan_routes = {
Between the Oxus, India and Iran, Khorasan is a region of great importance for long range commerce. The Silk Road passes through, connecting Samarkand with Iran and the Mediterranean, and is joined in Herat, by the Grand Trunk Road from India.\nThis long journey is a perilous and arduous one for many merchants however. By vowing to protect all merchants passing through our lands, and constructing regular caravanserais along the trade routes, we can greatly limit the risks and likely attract even more wealth to our great cities

trs_mawarannahr = {
Transoxiana, the land beyond the Amu Darya, or Oxus, has been known since the days of the great Iskandar of Macedon as the end of Persian culture. Our lands are where Iran ends and Turan starts, a realm of great cities, but also dominated by Turko-Mongol tribes.\nIn more recent times Transoxiana was the starting point for Timur Lenk's Empire and it remains the base for many of the clans that supported his bid for power. As Timur has shown we could do great things as long as we keep them united.

cavalry_power = 0.2
}
trs_threshold_of_paradise = {
While he was far from the first conqueror to come to Transoxiana, Timur made the region the center of his Empire and he brought treasures, artists, builders and artisans from the entire world to his great capital in Samarkand. We must strive to uphold this legacy, and continue to embellish this foremost jewel among cities. From the courts in Castile to the palaces in Beijing everyone shall covet the gilded city on the Silk Road.

prestige = 1
}
trs_adept_diplomacy = {
Through education and training our rulers acquire the virtues of great kingship, but there is no school that will teach how to survive in the political climate of Transoxiana. Ever since the days of Timur, young princes, uncles and cousins have plotted against one another for the right to rule this region. When one of our princes reach adulthood and manages to take on the reins of power, we can be sure that they are, if nothing else, quite adept at espionage and politics.\nIf our realm is to ever be free of this poisonous atmosphere we must put an end to such infighting, striving to outsmart the lesser scions of the family once and for all.

spy_offence = 0.2
}
trs_turkoman_cannoneers = { #Babur's ambition
While it is going to be a long while from determining any battles in the open lands of Transoxiana, gunpowder promises to change warfare to its very foundation. Turkic cannoneers have already made a name for themselves in India and Iran. The time has come to make sure these talented men of war never leave our lands. Let us put the most skilled gunsmiths to work and create the greatest artillery arm in Central Asia.

artillery_cost = -0.15
}
trs_scientific_patronage = {
Our realm his home to some of the greatest minds of this era. Great thinkers, philosophers, writers, artists and astronomers. If we are to truly benefit from their brilliance, however, we must dare give them the tools to aim higher. Let us build great works and buildings in the name of science. We will provide astronomical observatories, libraries and all patronage aspiring minds might require.\n\n'Religions rise and fall, empires crumble into dust, but the works of science are for all time.

technology_cost = -0.05
}
trs_entrepot_of_the_silk_road = {
While many places benefit from being transit points for the Silk Road, we are are the center of one of its greatest Entrepôts. From east, to west traders know of the reputation of Bukhara and Samarkand, and are willing to cross the deserts of the Tarim Basin and Iran or the great steppes to the north, to be able to sell their wares here, bringing home our silk, paper and whichever exotic goods they can find here to their homelands.\nOur wealth depends on keeping the peace. Without Timur, and Genghis Khan before him, many find this too dangerous to undertake. We must endeavour to protect all traders in our lands and negotiate right of passage for any long distance traders that seek our markets.

Afghanistan: Vassal of Timurids, starting development: 47
Already has National Ideas

Sistan: Vassal of Timurids, starting development: 14
No unique national ideas (as of writing)

Phew, that's quite a lot. Well, This. Is. Persia. so I think we can talk a bit more about changes in the area. In order to get to that I want to look over at the meek and unassuming nation of Ardabil, complete with its one province and 9 development

In the borderlands between the crumbling Timurid Empire and the Qara Qoyunlu, a number of small sheikdoms are nominal vassals of both powers. In practice many of them are independent in all but name. Most of their neighbors will not be shown until next week but the one you can see here, Ardabil, would rise to unprecedented fame. In 1444 the rulers of Ardabil are under the influence of a growing Islamic sect, the Safavid Order. Historically Ardabil is the embryo of the future Persian Empire and the Safavid Dynasty. As such, Ardabil has a new Government form of Feudal Theocracy which it shares with precious few other nations.

Feudal Theocracy:
  • +1 Missionary (for Kingdom and Empire Rank)
  • +1 Missionary Strength
  • +1 Tolerance of True Faith (+2 at Empire Rank)
Feudal Theocracy functions as a Monarchy, but with heavy religious focus. This can be adopted by nations who form Persia. While this is a free change with the 1.23 Persia Update, the accompanying Expansion will allow the use of Government Interactions made available for Feudal Theocracies:

Feudal Theocracy interactions.jpg



Each interaction has its own cost and a 5 year cooldown.

  • 50 ADM - Seize Clerical Holdings: -15% Build Cost for 5 years.
  • 50 DIP - Invite Minorities from Abroad: Gain -20% development cost and +1 random development in your Capital Area.
  • 50 MIL - Sanction Holy War: Grants a claim on all non-allied non-(own)subject bordering provinces which are owned by a nation who is not the Feudal Theocracy’s State Religion,
As a final piece for today's dev diary, I will leave you with two screenshots which have been long requests: Cultural and Religious mapmodes for the whole area we've been working on:

Cultural.jpg


religious.jpg


These can be tricky subject matter to nail down in our setup. As such, if there are what you feel to be mis-representations, I would encourage you to tag myself and @Trin Tragula in a post in the Suggestions forum, with sources to back what you feel should be changed.

Phew, that was quite the diary. Next week let's relax with some Rum to unwind.

Are their abilities modable, to maybe mod it for other religions ?

I would like to mention that Azerbaijani culture belongs to Turkish rather than Persian. Which makes it logical to create Turkish culture group, not include it in Levantine :D

Looks great! Cant wait to play in this region.
I hope that Sistan not having unique ideas does not mean you will give them generic national ideas. It looks like a really difficult position that id love to play, but generic ideas are just too boring.
