Welcome to the 30th development diary of Europa Universalis IV. Today we take a look at four rather different countries in the middle east.

All of them are what we call tier3 nations, which means they have a unique set of ideas, and about a dozen historical events.


The Mamelukes
This state controls Egypt and Syria at the start of the game, but was historically conquered by the Ottomans in the 16th century. They are Sunni and has an Iqta government. The Mamelukes sit on the main tradenodes directing trade from India and China to Europe.

They start with +25% Trade Steering, and +10% Cavalry Power.

Persia
The state of Persia was formed in the early 16th century. Persia is a Shiite Theocracy in the game.

Persia starts with +10% Vassal Income, and an extra 5% in Army Morale Recovery.

  7. Increased Crown Lands: +10% Tax Income.
When they have all their ideas, Persia gets a 10% decrease of Cavalry Cost.


The Timurids
In 1444 Timur Lenk is long dead, but the remnants of his empire still controls the persian heartland. They are a Sunni Steppe Horde. They share their ideagroup with the Mughal Empire which they can form when they have taken control of northern India.

They start with 25% cheaper cores, and a significant +10% monthly morale recovery of armies.
  1. Timurid Architecture: 2% lower Prestige Decay

When they get all ideas, they get a +5% to discipline.



Oman
Oman is the Portugal of the Muslim world. Positioned at the edge, and able to control the trade from India. They are a shiite despotic monarchy in 1444.

Oman starts with +0.5 to Naval Morale, and a -50% to Naval Maintenance.

Wow, randomly check for a new update, and one was posted 5 minutes ago!

This one is a lot less wordy, all there really is, is a bunch of statistics.

EDIT: Typos?

There are also other
... Other what?

The Mamlukes where conquered by the Ottomans, not the Mamlukes...

+2% Tolerance of Heathern
Heathern? Extra r in there. Also, I don't think tolerance is normally a percentage.

Nice. We already had seen all the MAM ideas but the others are new.

Oman seems like an interesting state to play now. I dont think Ive ever played Oman in Eu3.

Liking the religious bonuses. Hordes' are especially fitting.

WHAt a big typo... anyway, mamluks, were strong, thou ottoman conquest should be possible to be done in one go - just so that can be historical. But only if you completly occupy them... Conquest of mamluks took like 2 years...

Can you form Egypt?

And it is Qızılbahşı.
Well, the Mamluks already do kind of control, and are based in Egypt... Though, quite a few people have been suggesting that in such cases, the nation should display the dynasty name, and when it becomes a Republic, it uses the name of the nation, so if the Mamluks had a republican revolution, it could display as 'Egypt.'

How are the Persians spawned, if you start in 1444? Will we get to see them in every game, and will they be an actual threat, to an Ottoman player?

Likely due to the cores inside the Timurid provinces. In EU3, when the Timurids break apart (They tend to be much less stable, when compared to the Golden Horde,) Persia tends to form due to the nationalist rebels.

Ya but this is 1444, completely different situation, especially as the Timurds are in full retreat. How do the Persians spawn; and how often are we going to see them?

Paradox, what do you mean by Iqta? AFAIK Iqta (اقطاع) is just the Arabic word for Feudalism. Why have a different term / gameplay element? And if so, why don't other Muslim monarchies have it?

Until this DD, I wasn't thinking about playing as Oman. "Portugal of the Muslim World" looks really interesting. And it will be really fun when fighting aganist Portugal at Red Sea and India.
