Alright, first time out here

settings: GC, normal/normal
goals: try to reach pre-pearl harbor bounderies of Japanese empire by 1819.


Jan 1. 1419: It was a cloudy day when Shoko, shogun of the Nipponese people, dispatched the 40000 man strong Imperial army to the southern province of Kyushu. Shoko was a man of action, and he was hoping to claim territory on main-land Asia, but first he needed staging points. The island of Taiwan was simply begging to be colonized. He also dispatched the Imperial navy to carry the troops to Taiwan. Turning inwards, Shoko demand a less mercantile economy, giving himself the extra colonists he knew he would need.

By early Febuary, the army and navy were in place, and as the newly formed 10000 man Kyushu regiment boarded the ships, there was a terrible act commited. on the 18th of febuary, the noble Togashi Mitsushige was killed on Koya mountian under the orders of the shogun. The disgust at this act caused a minor drop in stability, but Shoko was confidant that there would be no rebellions. Soon after the ships departed for Taiwan. On April 3rd, Shoko accepted a Chinese trade agreement proposal, followed by a Malaccan proposal on the 20th. On June 9th, the shogun was delighted to hear that the natives of Taiwan had been totally crushed by the Kyushu Regiment, and that the area was ready for settlement. Soon afterward, colonists were dispatched.

At the same time, the Imperial navy was sent ot Tohoku, as was a 8000 man regiment of the Imperial army. they were to clear the area north of Manchu for settlement, consisting of the provinces of Vanin and Bogorodsk. By mid-autumn 1419, the army was en route to Vanin, where Shoko hoped to make a city from which he could begin raids against Manchu. By November, the army had unloaded, and defeated the natives in Vanin, and went north to remove the native threat from Bogorodsk. The commander had not been expecting the unrelenting weather of northern Asia, and after he had killed the natives, he retreated to Vanin, which had a slightly higher supply level.

A colony was established in Vanin on the 5th of June, 1421, and three days later the Chinese amabassador requested Nippon to join them in alliance with Dai-viet, Taungu, and Vientiane, and who was at war with Myanmar. Shoko, realized that he could not get troops to Myanmar because he did not have maps of the area. But, an alliance with the Chinese would help in his inevitable war with Manchu, who were allied with Korea. He agreed. Then, realizing he would need a more robust economy for this war, he promoted the tax collectors of the provinces of Kyushu, Kansai, Shikoku, and Kanto.

Over the following 7 years, Shoko kept low on the international radar(yay anachronisms)!, slowly promoting the tax collectors and placing merchants, and with the remainder of the Imperial treasury, he sent the seventh group of colonists to Vanin, who were hardy enough to make that colony a full fledged city. Shoko was eager to engage Manchu, but soon Nippon would see it's largest problems not from the Manchurian-Korean Axis, but from it's own people...

I've heard that Japan has very challenging revolt events -- looking forward to seeing how you handle them.

Why not go for 1942 boundaries? :D

Welcome to the forum! AAR writing and reading add a very special component to the game. Glad to have you with us! Do the librarian a favor and list your new AAR on the Library Update thread (stickied at or near the top of this forum).

Banzai! :)

Good luck my friend, the other AARs ive read on Nippon ended upruptly when the rebellion events happen somewhere around the 1500s. It will be interesting to see how youve prepared for it.

Chapter 2: Those Damn Peasants!

With the sucessful founding of the Vanin city, Shoko ordered that another attempt be made at the colonization of Taiwan, which had not progressed beyond the first, unsuccessful attempt 8 years ago. It was a complete success, giving the Nippon empire a valuable naval base in the south china sea. The great joy was tempered by the loss of Shoko, who apparenetly had had too much wine at the celebration of the founding. He was found dead in his cahmbers on the morning of July 21, 1428. His nephew, Go-Hanazomo, rose to the throne, and while Go-Hanazomo was an excellent diplomat, he was a mediocre general, a trait that would not help Nippon in their upcoming wars.

At the same time, the elements of the Ezochi regiment had finally formed up in Ezochi and the Imperial Fleet was dispatched to retrieve the small army still on the island of Taiwan and return them to Kyushu, where the bulk of the Imperial Army was waiting. As the Taiwan regiment was off-loading from the boats, the ikki, peasants, came and demand loowering of taxes and cancellation of debt. The court was filled with uproarious laughter for ten minutes, and when Go-Hanazomo discovered that these ikki were serious, rather than but his trade development back to the stone age and increase the power of the peasants, he decided to behead the ikki and crush this revolt as a lesson. (Crush the ikki in Shocho Ikki). The peasants of Kansai spread that word of the Emperor's edict and immediately revolted, and the stability of kingdom fell by an enormous amount. Kansai was not the only area affected, and according to the Imperial Census, for a year the peasants were 15% more likely to revolt.

The Imperial army moved quickly to stamp out this revolt in Kansai, and the Imperial fleet was sent to move troops from Ezochi to mainland Japan. On December 24th, the ikki rebellion in Kansai was completely destroyed, but the army remained on high alert. This policy paid off, when more ikki demanded annulment of debt and reduction in taxes. Imperial advisers suggest to give in to these demands, for another refusal would cause the revolt risk to double from its already high position, make the stability of the empire hit rock bottom, and give even more power to the nobles. Go-Hanazomo, far from accepting this advice, decided that by giving in he would only provoke further demands from the ikki. Indeed, the Emperor took a certain relish in the battles he would fight and the ikki blood that would be spilt. He demanded these new protesters killed and their families as well.(Crush the ikki in Harima Ikki). Kansai was once again in revolt, and the effects that the advisors had warned of all occured. Hanazomo did not care, for he looked forward to crushing these rebellions beneath his iron boot heel.

On the 1st of Febuary, 1429, as the Imperial army was locked in mortal kombat(he he he) the peasants of Shikoku decided that with the imperail army tied down, now was time to try to slip the surly bonds of...government. The Imperial army was defeated by the heathen rebels and sent into a tactical withdrawal to Kanto. On the first of May the provinces of Tohoku and Kyushu, seeming to agree with Shikoku that the whole government idea was a big mistake, also rebelled. Now the Imperial army was back on the march, some what desperate to recover Kansai when they learned the delightful news that there had been a new rebellion in Kyushu and that rebels had taken the province, adn that the Ezochians were rebelling. Simply splendid!

The battle of Kansai proved the turning point in these ikki rebellions. the rebels were quickly routed, and the army was sent to break the siege of Shikoku, with success. On July 30th, the Imperial army marched on Kyushu, hoping to remove the rebel threat. 2 days later, Kanto decided that since this rebellion thing seemed such jolly good fun, that they simply has to try it, much to Go-Hanazomo's annoyance. But the Emperor was cheered to learn that in Kyushu the rebel threat had been destroyed, and the city taken without a siege. He immediately sent the Imperial army northward, when on the first of September the commander was informed that even more peasants had revolted in both Tohoku and Kanto. The situation was quickly becoming critical in the province of Tohoku, where the main city was not expected to hold out until the end of the year. The Emperor hatched a brilliant plot. The top regiment of the Imperial army, composed of 6000 men and 2000 horse, was loaded onto ships in the inland sea. The regular army marched to battle the Kantoian rebels while this special forced sailed past the battle and valiantly forced a landing on the beaches of Tohoku, pushed inland, and totally annihilated the rebel army, some 3 times as big. When the remnants of the special force, which had suffered near 60% casualties, joined the Imperial amry, they were immediately loaded on to a boat and send to break the siege of Ezochi, which they did.

There were no more rebellions, and within a year the chance of revolt had dropped to nothing. With the issue of internal strife out of the picture, the Emperor order half the army send to Vanin and the other half to wait off the coast of Korea, for Go-Hanazomo hoped to open a three-fron war on the Manchurian-Korean Axis. One front is the chinese army pushing up from the south, the second an amphibious landing by Nipponese troops, and the final front is an northern invasion. By April 3rd, everything but the fleet was in position. Then the chinese jumped the gun and declared war on Manchu, throwing off the whole timetable. On the other hand, Korea dishonored their military alliance. The Spring War had begun!

Next post: The Nipponese "chu" on Manchu.

Curses! I was planning Nippon for my next AAR. Guess you beat me to the punch! :p

Nice start. I find its difficult to colonize with Asian nations, due to their overall low techs, poor selection of colony sites, and lack of explorors. Good luck with making yourself the shark of the Pacific! Keep in mind that sinking European vessels is a good way of gaining maps in the future, and Hawaii and Tahiti make good strategic naval bases! :D

The Spring war - sound like it could be bloody.

A good all-round update. You'd get bored without the odd round of revolts after all ;)

Chapter 3: El Waro de Springo

Those DAMN Chinese! was the only thought in His Enthronedness Go-Hanazomo's mind when he order that the Tohoku Army, composed of 5000 cavalry and 13,270 infantry, under the command of Ideyoshi, advance south from Vanin and lay siege to Nelma, the northern most part of Manchu. The Emperor knew there was a second northern province, but lacking maps, decided that he could not sent troops there. The army on board the Imperial fleet hurried to get ready as it was urgent that they unload with all due haste upon arrival in the North Korean sea, which they did.

The Chinese were not entirely useless, mused Go-Hanazomo. As any warrior knows, you use both the shield and the sword. The Nipponese army, while well-trained, was simply no match for the 45,000 Manchurian Army. The Chinese army would bear the brunt of the fight, Go-Hanazomo hoped, so that his armies could dart between provinces, avoiding any significant conflict with the Manchu.

On May 7th, the city of Nelma was besieged, while the southern army was split. One wing went to stop any buildup of Manchurian troops in the north, while the other wing besieged Olga. The 1st Corp of the Southern Army, the patrolling one, was hampered by the lack of maps of the interior of Manchu, and so were helpless when Manchurian troops swooped out of the unknown lands, took Vanin, which lacked a fortress, and immediately moved to break the siege of Nelma. They were repulsed by the outnumbered, outgunned, but not outmanuevered Nipponese troops, who then returned to the siege of Nelma.

Three days later, on December 28, The Chinese army sieging Liaotung was decimated by Manchurian forces. The Chinese then retreated to Jehol, where another siege was progressing. The Manchurians followed, and nearly wiped out the Chinese army, which was sent scurrying across the border. Now came the move that endangered the Nipponese hold on the north. With the southern front relatively secure, a detachment of troops left Jehol, marching northward. The siege of Olga was likely to last another nine months, but the one of Nelma was near over, with a mere 3 months remaining. Nelma must be taken. The commander of the 1st corp of the Southern Army, Watanabe, realized this, and rode forth with his 3560 cavalry and 4058 infantry in valiant defense to slow the Manchurian advance and met the 25000 man army in the mountians outside the Manchurian capital of Jilin. The Battle of Jilin has been called the Eastern Thermopylae, where the 7,000 man corp held the Manchurian army for 10 days before being totally annihilated. This ultimate act of samurai honor was the idea behind the famous haiku, Mountains of Jilin:

Mountains of Jilin,
Fallen samurai everywhere,
Our grief drives us on.

By now the bad winter had broken and it was March 24, 1437. The Manchurian army had disappeared into the unknown lands, but it was too late. on April 3, Nelma fell. In the sack of Nelma were captured maps that the Manchu had captured when they took the province of Hepei. These maps revealed the entire south-east of asia and indonesia. They also gave the whereabouts of one of the fragments of the mongol empire, the Chagatai Khanate, the Indian subcontinent and of a place called Samarkand.

Now the emperor was quickly trying to settle a peace with Manchu for the mere cost of Nelma, but the Manchu government would have none of it. Go-Hanazomo was desperate. The army sieging Olga was about to be annihilated by the advancing Manchurians, and the Northern Army had suffered heavy attrition during the winter and stood little chance against the home team. The Battle of Olga was nothing, for the Nipponese army withdrew to Nelma, where, joined with the remnants of the Northern Army, they hoped to stop the Manchurian advance. Which they failed at. Two days after the battle was joined, the Chinese payed 9 gold in indemnities.

After 2 years, the Spring War had drawn to a close. The only material benefit the Nipponese gained was the seizure of the maps. To Go-Hanazomo, this was a mere scuffle. He now looked at the newly discovered lands and made a decision. The First Spring War, for there would be more, was proof that even with China, Nippon must be stronger when the next war came.

How did you get maps from capturing Nelma? That's not the Manchu capital, is it?:confused:
i have no idea. i thought that if you captured one province you got it. it's always been like that in my version. Could be a bug i suppose.


how do you take screenshots? i would like them for an upcoming post.

You can take screenshots while playing the game with the F11 key. That saves the current display as a bitmap file in your EU2 folder. From there you can open this file and make whatever adjustments you want, then save it, hopefully as something smaller such as jpg. That's the easy part. The hard part is that you need a website somewhere to store your image. Then you can link to it in your posts here.
