Introduction - The story Pt. 1

The year is 1356. Grand Master Winrich von Kniprode is sitting on his chair, in his Hall in Elbing. He is thinking...

156 years ago, 500 crusaders arrived near what is now Riga. The Order conquered and converted the local Baltic people in the south, Finno-Ugric people in the north. Fpr over a Century, his predecessors have fought against the enemies of Christ. Winrich has been the Grandmaster for 4 years. There is almost no-one to fight. Only the Lithuanians in South-East. The relations aren't good with Poland either. "We are not recognized as crusaders of the north anymore. It is my duty now, to prove them wrong. The glory of the Order must be raised into the sky. It is I, I who must do it. I shall leave a glorious State behind me." Winrich has stood up from his chair. He walks out of the hall, into a somewhat busy town square of Elbing, a small town with 4500 people, but it is the capital.

Order's lands occupy the coasts of South-Eastern Baltic Sea, the sea from where the first crusaders stepped onto this land. In the north, Livonian Order is ruling the lands, though under the command of Teutonic order. Bishoprics are scattered around the lands of the Order. the Order has a narrow path along the coast from the southern Teutonic Order to the Lands of Livonian Order, making it easy for robbers to steal small merchants and even large caravans, not to mention single persons. Due to that, Winrich has hardly been to Riga, Dorpat or Reval. Further away from the coast next to narrow path, is the Lithuanian lands and because the relations arent very warm, it is impossible to pass trough that land, which would be a safer route. For several years, even before Winrich became Grandmaster, he thought that those lands must be taken for the Order. The thoughts however have stayed like this...

Territory of Teutonic Order and his subordinates

Chapter 1 - Preparations

Winrich has summoned several diplomats into his hall. He has written letters in order to make alliances with the neighbours of his enemies. one by one, diplomats come to him, Winrich gives them the letters saying where the letters shall be delivered. " Praha" , "Novgorod" , "This goes to Stockholm" , "Smolensk" , "Take this to Buda" . Winrich dismisses them. He expects answers in a few days. Winrich has decided that , war must be made against the Polish king.


But first Lithuania must be attacked, and the long-lasting dispute of the Landbridge must be broken.

Winrich calls for a small army reform , to increase the size of the Order's armies.

Immedate recruitment of men also begins, 7000 men isn't enough to hold a war, especially against the Lithuanians and Polish.

In the following days, the diplomats come back from their destinations, most of them with good news. only the Hungarian king has refused to make an alliance. The diplomat from Novogorod however, comes back with a different letter. Novgorod is calling for aid against Golden Horde. Winrich reluctantly goes to the aid of novgorod. But no physical actions are made for the war. Recruitment is still in process.

Eu4 killed Eu3! :ninja: Well, I'm disappointed when I say that despite owning Eu3 for all these years, I barely logged half as many hours on that game as the fourth! :mellow:

CHapter 2 - Destiny of The Order

But then, nothing happened. Winrich couldnt do anything. He knows that without a valid reason, foreign leaders will consider him as a warmonger, a tyrann. (apparently I dont have any casus belli against Pagans) The army has been recruited.


Meanwhile, Lithuanian armies have annexed Mazovia.

Winrich doesnt like the situation. He must look for possibilities to fulfill his missions, to show the world Who the Order is, kill his enemies and rule over them.

peace was made with the Golden horde. and for 2 years everything was quiet. Then, Bohemia called for aid against France, who had attacked Provence. Even though joining the war. Winrich saw no possibility and the need to send an army there.
France took some land from provence and occupied Burgundian lands with his ally, Savoy, eventually taking some land from them aswell and having Burgundy release Nevers. The French king sent a peace deal with a messenger to Winrich, and Winrich accepted the peace, as there was nothing to be done in the war anyway.
Once again the Order lived in peace, living a regular every-day life. No wars threatened the lands and people of the Order.

Then, suddenly, a messenger with a disturbing message came into the hall. He came from Livonian Order, telling that French troops have landed in livonia. Winrich however couldn't do anyhting, as he had already made peace with the french.


and then a few months later, news came that Milan, the leader of the opposition side against France, accepted to give France Liepaja, a land that belonged to Livonian Order.

Winrich was furious. But yet again, for now he could do nothing. He had to wait for his moment to launch an attack. "It seems, that it is Order's destiny to be at presence, but yet not aswell. just a holefiller in Europe. Teutonic Order was cut from Livonian Order and other subordinates. Trade must continue through the sea now, announced Winrich. Every merchant knows, that Seatrade in the Baltic Sea is very dangerous, Sudden storms, but above all Sea Bandits, raiding every merchant ship they see. Sometimes They have formed groups of ships, mostly stolen ones, and attack even convoys. There are very few warships, that are guarding the Convoys so they are a pretty easy target.

In the West, news that Brandenburg is expanding his territory, came.
Territory of Brandenburg.


It has been over 12 years now, that Winrich decided to make the Order stand out from others. nothing has happened, expect some wars and also losing province to france. Winrich sits in his hall, goes out to the town square, welcomes regular guests, but thats it. Winrich wants to Show his people that he is a capable Grandmaster, that he is capable of making war, and bringing wealth and power to the Order. But this hasnt happened...

The Teutonic Knights can form Prussia can't they? I presume then, they can form Germany too if given the chance?

I can't recall, and I often don't spend too much time east of the Danube unless I'm playing as Russia or trying to form the Mughals both back in EU3 and now in EU4.

Nice a Teutonic Order AAR now subbed.

Pretty historic game so far, as Winrich was quite peaceful for a Grand Master, prefering to improve the economy and trade income also trying to reduce the hate of the neighbours and get the trust of them back.

Think due lack of CB for a proper way to expand, opening a COT and starting to "absorb" the vasalls (Riga!) should reduce the waiting time to get Liepaja back.

two things.

1) Teutonic Order changes to Prussia as long as you own East Prussia and are a Protestant Religion. And yes, they can form Germany.

3) I bought EUIV the day it came out, and have put about 6 days worth of gaming into it. Still dont like it. I keep giving it more of an opinion, but I like EUIII alot more. Now I want to do an EUIII AAR.

Hmm, I adore the entire EU series, Victoria, I guess CK but I've never been good at the game so I tend not to play it that much. The only Paradox title I was extremely, and I emphasize extremely, displeased with was/has been HoI3. I haven't really played the game since it came out. I went back to playing HoI2 and the various add-ons, expansions, etc. based on the HoI2 engine. I conservatively estimate I probably played upwards of 1,000+ hours of HoI2 between 2005-2007 when I had a lot of free time, an additional couple hundred since, probably no more than about 40 hours of HoI3. I just don't like the game at all.

Unfortunately, the release of new games always means the old ones fade away, but it's always nice to see them hang around in the forum per AARs.

I rather enjoyed HOI3. But the again, that was my Paradox Cherry pop.
Haha, I despise it with a passion, even though I follow a few HoI3 AARs just for fun.

Chapter 3 - Change of Destiny

For another 2 years, life in the Order was the same. Winrich decided, after having a mysterious man suggest him that, to start working on the economy of Order.
Plans were made to build a Center of trade in Danzig.

But then, News came that Smolensk is at war with Lithuania. Winrich knew what this meant. He went to the town square, after having sent messages to northern Subordinates, that War is imminent against the Lithuanians.

Winrich immediately ordered, another army to be recruited. 15000 more men are being recruited.

War was declared. Novgorod and Poland however had joined with the Lithuanians, and so the Order had 3 enemies to fight. Allies of he Order, Sweden and Bohemia were called upon to aid Winrich.


The polish army was defeated in Mazovia, and the routing units were captured or killed. Nothing was left of the Polish army.
