Hello, and welcome back to AARland, I'm your host, Firezatswill9, and I've gotten my hands on 1.31 (and Leviathan) and have already found something amazing. I've locked my game version to the newly released version as to prevent any updates from destroying the save, and will be doing a quickie AAR about a Buddhist 1 Faith, using no exploits this time (sorry Sarig Yogir, you were cool being an animist 1 faith, but I did use some cheeky exploits at the time), so buckle up!

This was NOT what I was planning to do when the new patch dropped, but I can't NOT do this. I just can't! Obviously, being literally just an HOUR after dropping, I don't have anything ready YET, but when I do, I'll make sure to update everyone here!

I assume if you say Buddhist that you will be doing all 3 of them in succesion?
Assuming I don't run into one of the myriad of CTD bugs that have been reported, I can honestly say that's in the cards.

Chapter 1: Big Trouble in Big China

Alright, it's been about a month since I originally posted this thread, but now I can finally say this: WELCOME TO OIRAT'S GLOBAL CONVERSION BONANZA! I'm your host, Firezatswill, and I'll be taking you through a very casual Oirat campaign. How casual? Well, considering I forgot to swap the difficulty over from normal to V. Hard (new computer, new EU4 install, and I only remembered to change the idea group setting. Embarrassing mistake, but by the time I considered it I decided I couldn't be bothered to restart the campaign.)

It's been a good 4 years since I last played a horde (not including a Najd run that ended in a horde), but playing a horde is like riding a horse, you never forget! The only difference is that, this time, we're playing a baby mode big horde from the start, and not a 2pm, superior horde like Sarig Yogir or Kara Del. But I didn't want to retread old ground, and starting as one of the Russian steppe hordes was out of the question.

Anyways, this was always intended to be a relaxing game, so it's only natural that I forgot to take some early screenshots.

20210427200353_1.jpg


We DoW'd Ming damn near immediately after we got our army next to Beijing. We're shooting to pop the "Capture of the Ming Emperor" and "Capture of Beijing" triggers to instantly siege down northern China. And to do that, OIRAT needs to siege down Beijing. It can't be anyone else, not even Mongolia.

20210427200427_1.jpg


And while we're at war, we have a really impressive heir pop out. Stats like that are always something to smile about.

20210427200721_1.jpg


Here we go, we got Beijing. And at the onset of the war, we captured the emperor when we fought the Ming army stationed in Beijing. 2 years to trigger it, could have been faster if we got luckier with the siege ticks, but I'm not gonna complain about it.

20210427202111_1.jpg


1450, we peace out Ming for most of the north, including a lot of their forts. Unfortunately, since this is normal and not hard or V. Hard, rebels have popped en masse, and will inevitably cause a Mingsplosion. Which is NOT what I wanted, but I guess we'll have to adapt on the fly.

20210427203155_1.jpg


Now, to break out an old trick from our playbook...

DoWing Ming's tributaries call them into the war as well, allowing us to bypass the truce. In hindsight, I would have been better off trucebreaking them to death, but I tend to save the truce breaks for the endgame. There might have been another reason why I didn't break them repeatedly, but that was a month ago and I can't remember that far back, at least not smaller details like that!

20210427203218_1.jpg


Ming gets a smaller truce now. We'll take them on later.

20210427203250_1.jpg


...Or maybe not. That's a SOLID Mingsplosion. And it adds several decades to our conquest of China as a result. Damn me and my adherence to treaties!

20210427203326_1.jpg


Ah well, no use crying over it. May as well get to chunking away at these tags. Qi is first on the chopping block!

20210427203627_1.jpg


Kara Del is forcibly integrated. Their 30 ducats they gave us are NOT chump change, we're running a severe deficit right now. Unlike the Sarig Yogir run, we don't have immediate access to a goldmine that we could dev to heaven and back. It's possible we could, but I think there was either an annoying alliance chain with Chagatai, or I was trying to limit the AE I get to just confucians and buddhists. One of those two things.

20210427203819_1.jpg


Next up, Jin and Ning! We're literally going to be daisy-chaining these wars. So in that regard, it MIGHT be speeding up our conquest. But I'm still positive that we'd get more, faster, via Ming and the "take Mandate" CB. Oh well, at least they all have separate coffers to plunder.

20210427204035_1.jpg


Y'know what, who cares. We can take all of you on, we're strong enough to take on all these tags at once!

20210427204127_1.jpg


Qi is eaten, and a coalition of confucians is able to form. Which is why we're making sure to DoW as many nations as we can before peacing out for full annexations.

20210427204601_1.jpg


Ning gets off with a warning, mostly because we need the cash. And we don't have any way to core their lands, not without eating a lot of other nations first.

20210427204656_1.jpg


Jin also gets eaten, and we finally get a peek at the coalition list. It's numerous enough that people would join, but not numerous enough to actually stop us. We're a horde, we're basically cheating already.

20210427205327_1.jpg


Liang, unfortunately, gets to live to see another day. Damn you and your province development!

20210428173148_1.jpg


But, we now have a new neigh-bor to greet. So we immediately grab some cookies and ride on over to introduce ourselves.

20210428173249_1.jpg


Additionally, we unlock admin ideas. 25% ccr from the group, and the 20% from our NI's sync up so well, after all!

20210428175453_1.jpg


Wu is rich, and helps us pay off some loans. We'll eat them later.

20210428180623_1.jpg


Yue also helps pay off loans. It's no "Bank of Hansa", but it's better than nothing!

20210428180658_1.jpg


With this new peace deal, we officially have Buddhists joining the coalition list. Which is annoying, but what can you do. *shrug*

20210428181129_1.jpg


Tech cost reduction? I mean, of course! Thanks, Confucius!

20210428181251_1.jpg


I'm sure there was a reason why we DoW'd Korchin at this point, but I can't recall why. Mission, perhaps?

20210428181515_1.jpg


Horde mercs, very useful, albeit expensive.

20210428181648_1.jpg


OK, based off the peace deal, I THINK I was going for returning Mongolia's cores, and taking their Chinese acquisitions. The former because we're integrating them, the latter probably for a mission. I think. Eh, what am I even doing, this is MY AAR, so of COURSE that's what it was for! *nervous glances*

20210428182420_1.jpg


Now, we've been doing a lot of work. But our khan has also been putting in a lot of effort to get the government running smoother. And being a horde, we don't care what deity you worship. An eagle, a carpenter, an anthropomorphic horse, it's all good!

Now, I can already here some of you thinking "hey, how the hell do you have your THIRD reform filled out already, your autonomy must be SKY HIGH!"

And you're right. It IS high!

20210428182426_1.jpg


But, because this is 1.31.0 release build, literally everything is exploding and busted, so now we have a SIGNIFICANT GAIN of reform progress the higher our average autonomy is. Isn't 1.31.0 just a great thing?

20210428194517_1.jpg


Teching up a little early, before we start putting all our points into developing the renaissance. We mostly just wanted that nice innovativeness gain. 4 per tech taken before anyone else is a noteworthy buff, and makes innovativeness more than just a Euro-meme.

20210428194631_1.jpg


OK, Ning is up, and they're allied to Taiwan. We tried to build a small navy to invade them, but it's not enough at this point.

20210428194655_1.jpg


And now, we have our new khan in charge! Huzzah!

20210428194849_1.jpg


And now, we have 9 innovativeness. Amazing. It's only been 20 years.

20210428195113_1.jpg


Oh, right, that thing. I forgot about that disaster, we crushed Ming quicker than it could fire. Oh well, it'll help us a bit in the future. But it's not like we were concerned by the dead empire.

20210428195159_1.jpg


Ning got chomped.

20210428195728_1.jpg


OK, NOW it's time to eat Wu. Their allies are no concern to us!

20210428195927_1.jpg


White peace with Chu. For no reason iirc. I think I rectify that soon.

20210428200209_1.jpg


Wu is also big and chunky, so we can't eat them all in one go. But we CAN take a lot of their land and leave them vulnerable for the next war.

20210428200254_1.jpg


Next up is Yue!

20210428200716_1.jpg


Easy victory, no sweat.

20210428201002_1.jpg


Liang is finally off the map.

20210428201107_1.jpg


Yue, like so many others, is too big for one war. So we settle for their forts and good land.

20210428201813_1.jpg


Also we make sure we border Min, for a follow up war.

20210428201932_1.jpg


OK, we're tired of having slow sieges. So we bite the bullet and get some cannons at a high cost.

20210428202036_1.jpg


But on the plus side, our penultimate reform is taken. Grand total of 50% ccr now!

20210428202101_1.jpg


Innovativeness calls, we're waiting for rebels to pop before we continue our developing.

20210428202202_1.jpg


Changhsheng is vassalized, because we're sick of fighting them.

20210428202350_1.jpg


Yue is left as an OPM for... reasons, I'm sure.

20210428202629_1.jpg


And Min is annexed.

20210428202727_1.jpg


Next up, ANOTHER WAR against the minor Chinese nations.

20210428202956_1.jpg


Easy out, Yue.

20210428203038_1.jpg


Kicking ass and taking names!

20210428203256_1.jpg


Shu gets their big and annoying provinces eaten. And Chu gets annexed off screen.

20210428203932_1.jpg


Then we DoW Tsang, who's allied to Shu and Sarig Yogir.

20210428204034_1.jpg


Shu gets a simple, new treaty.

20210428204425_1.jpg


And Tsang and the yellow Uighurs join our lands.

20210428204721_1.jpg


New khan, who dis?

20210428205407_1.jpg


OK Wu, it's time for you to go down!

20210428205753_1.jpg


And ya know what, let's go and pick on Shu! We'll shoo Shu away!

20210428205928_1.jpg


Wait, Ming was our rival? How? Legitimately, how were we rivaled?

Ah, right, PDX logic. :rolleyes:

20210428210048_1.jpg


And now, after a GRUELING 38 years, we've FINALLY reached the end of our government reforms. God, I never thought we'd reach the end.

Now we can put our points into more gov. capacity!

20210428210425_1.jpg


Well, looks like we annexed Mongolia, based off the new CBs we got.

20210428210438_1.jpg


Ah, so THAT'S why we DoW'd Korchin. This mission, right! Additional max cultures is always nice, especially for the later age objective.

20210428211539_1.jpg


China's almost monotone. Just a little more, huh Shun?

20210428211610_1.jpg


Release the doves, John Wu has left the building.

20210428211626_1.jpg


Huh, a lot of small nations are popping out still. Well, may as well eat them as they pop up.

20210428211715_1.jpg


Shun got shunned into joining us.

20210428211813_1.jpg


Xi got... I dunno, I can't think of a good joke involving Xi.

20210428211838_1.jpg


And now, we got our next idea group, the new Horde Government Idea group! It's basically humanist lite, with some slight mil buffs.

20210428212710_1.jpg


Looks like Ming's back on the menu, boys!

20210428212923_1.jpg


How could our reputation be tarnished? What are people doing, spreading rumors about our khan building churches and helping old ladies cross the street?!

20210428213013_1.jpg


Hey, more admin on our heir? Can't say no to that, assuming he lives!

20210428214053_1.jpg


Ming is almost dead. But almost dead isn't dead dead.

20210428214533_1.jpg


May as well get some tributaries going. May as well get some stuff coming in from them, to help patch us up.

20210428215431_1.jpg


Next up is opening our route to India!

It was uneventful. No pics needed.

20210428221126_1.jpg


Right, we also DoW'd Jianzhou. Because they were allied to a daimyo that broke free. So now we have our foothold in Japan. It's a special tool that will help us later.

20210428221506_1.jpg


We also eat a lot of Jianzhou. And apparently, Ming hates us for some reason. Can't fathom why.

20210428222548_1.jpg


OK, Korea, you're going to bring death upon your only ally by calling them in. This is all on YOU!

20210428222906_1.jpg


And now, after 56 years from the start of the game, Ming is dead! All that remains is Dali.

But that's for another day, as this is already insanely long as is. I wanted to put China all in one chapter, although it might have been better to break it up into two. But I didn't, and here we are.

Anyways, hope you enjoyed the start of this AAR, and we'll hopefully be having updates every other day or so!

Pureanger is that you? :p

me neither :/

We'll be watching your career with great interest!

Haha, I may have a bad memory, but I'm not as insane as the madlad Pureanger!

Anyways, glad to see you come along for the ride. Unfortunately, life got busy this past week, so I wasn't able to get the second part out as I wanted to. But I should be all good to have it out either tonight or tomorrow, assuming I don't forget about... what was I talking about again? ;)

Chapter 2: White's Out, Red's In!

Hello, and welcome back to Oirat and their world conversion mega blowout sale! I hope you like conquest and converting, because that's the plan in this run!

Anyways, last time, we killed the Ming.

20210428222913_1.jpg


The Ming is officially dead, and the MoH is where it belongs: IN THE TRASH!

20210428223724_1.jpg


Now, while we wait for our cores to finish, let's take care of the Manchurian hordes. Korchin, your alliance chain means nothing to us! NOTHING!

20210428224554_1.jpg


And now, finally, we turn to attack Chagatai. Maybe because their allies are being stomped on and will not hinder us? IDK, I still don't remember why we didn't murder them after that first bout with Ming. :confused:

20210428231042_1.jpg


Our battle hardened troops far outclass the Chagatanian's troops. Almost like being at war for 50 years will lead to you knowing a thing or two about fighting, imagine that!

20210428231227_1.jpg


Chagatai gets cut deep, losing a lot of their land, and most importantly, Kuqa. Their goldmine. Which we will be using to help boost our economy TO THE MOON!

20210428231329_1.jpg


With our Ming core complete, and us being at peace, we finally complete the "Restore Rule Over China" mission, giving us a bunch of mana, some stability, and bragging rights down at the local bar.

20210428231334_1.jpg


But the REAL prize is this!

Last time I unified Yuan, back in 1.22, you HAD to have the MoH to do so, meaning I did it at the absolute last second of the AAR. Which always bugged me. But now, that dumb rule is gone, so it's YUAN TIME, BABY!

20210428231345_1.jpg


Oirat ideas, pretty nice, pretty nice...

20210428231350_1.jpg


But I like THESE ideas better! :D

25% ccr (+5% better than Oirat), AND 5% admin efficiency makes Yuan one of, if not the BEST nation in the game for WC.

So yeah, combine that with normal difficulty, and this is going to be a very casual WC.

20210428232004_1.jpg


Now, back to the WC! U, it's time for U to die! Because U (g-l-y) ain't got no alibi!

God, I'm dating myself HARD with that reference.

20210428232438_1.jpg


Anyways, on to our next idea! Horde idea 4, giving us extra inno because only hordes can take it, and I highly doubt PDX reprogrammed the hordes to take it, given how slapdash a lot of the code went out for release.

20210428232646_1.jpg


U was so ugly, pictures of them were used as a contraceptive! So it's better that we got rid of them. Think of the children!

20210428232832_1.jpg


Next, more horde hellraising.

20210428233055_1.jpg


Jianzhou is left with only a little left. We'll eat them eventually.

20210428233151_1.jpg


Oh, Jianzhou, you'll defend Donghai? Why, that's mighty kind of you! I hope you're ready for it, though!

20210428233611_1.jpg


And to help us get ready, let's have a little less AE, shall we?

20210428233754_1.jpg


Donghai? No, Dongbye!

We also ate as much of Jianzhou as we could, leaving them as an OPM.

20210428234323_1.jpg


OK, now it's K-Pop time! BTS won't be here for another 500 years, but even our Khan has caught the K-pop fever, and is ranting endlessly about who he "stans" or something.

20210428234628_1.jpg


Next, new idea group! Diplomatic, because we want to take a LOT of land in a hurry. Nations can't coalition you if they don't exist, after all!

20210428234716_1.jpg


Korea's left as a small stump. And we probably will be back to get them later. Probably.

20210428235017_1.jpg


Dali and Hsweni are next on the docket. Gotta get all the Chinese clay under our rule, right?

Well, not just Chinese. All clay is OUR clay.

20210428235104_1.jpg


New heir? AND HE'S REALLY, REALLY GOOD!

Gotta hope our current khan lives to see 53!

20210428235202_1.jpg


Less unrest? Yes please! We don't have humanist yet, so we have rebels to deal with every so often. And not the cool rebels, like James Dean. I'm talking rebels like "kids stealing some candy because down with the man" rebels.

20210428235443_1.jpg


Dali is almost dead. We really, REALLY need that diplo idea to avoid problems like this!

20210428235607_1.jpg


Next on the block is Lan Xang! We're going hard into Indochina now, and they're a perfect target, given how we can't see much of anything else in the area!

Maybe we need to get some big fans to blow away all this fog.

20210429000723_1.jpg


Easy war yields a simple result. Gotta strike while the FoW shield is still active!

20210429000857_1.jpg


OK, next up is Mong Yang, and their gaggle of goofy goons. Not that it matters, because 0 times anything is still 0, and that's what they are. ZEROS!

20210429001613_1.jpg


Ah shit, I knew it wouldn't come to pass. A 6/3/6 is too good for such a casual run. But a 5/4/4? Now that's balanced enough for the game to let us have!

20210429002348_1.jpg


Coalition? Who cares, we're Yuan!

20210429002816_1.jpg


OK, now we're moving into India! Assam, you qualify, right?

20210429003912_1.jpg


Yeah, we're really starting to annoy our neighbors. INDIA, IF OUR MUSIC IS TOO LOUD, YOU'RE TOO OLD!

20210429004136_1.jpg


OK, while I was ORIGINALLY going to do this as an ally-less run, I decided against it. I rarely, if ever, use alliances offensively, so it's not like it makes a difference in our wars, aside from deterring coalitions.

20210429004200_1.jpg


But eh, even with our attempts at allies, they don't seem to like us. I can't seem to understand why, we're great neighbors! Always having a BBQ with our neighbors!

20210429094254_1.jpg


OK, we do have a BIT of a coalition. So we nut up and declare on them! Jianzhou, you're the leader here!

20210429094439_1.jpg


Yup, this is fine.jpg

20210429094915_1.jpg


Nah, we're good guys. Easy war with a white peace. Bye bye, coalition!

20210429094944_1.jpg


And hello Bahmanis! I hope you like grilling!

20210429095219_1.jpg


Now, with the coalition dealt with, we look back to Indochina! Mong Nai and Lan Na are up! But we win so fast that we don't have a picture. Oh well.

20210429100643_1.jpg


Bengal, wanna live for longer? Join us, and we'll kill you last!

20210429102005_1.jpg


ONCE MORE INTO THE BREACH!

20210429102207_1.jpg


Lan Xang gets a short truce in exchange for their allowance. Now they won't spend it all on candy and pokemon cards!

20210429102421_1.jpg


Manipur is Money-poor, so we just eat them, AE and dip cost be damned.

20210429102625_1.jpg


And next, we DOW Kachar and Assam. We're cleaning up the borders, so you all better appreciate that!

20210429102725_1.jpg


And now, it's time to abuse the new favors system! Hey Bahmanis, we have a little debt issue, care to toss a coin to your horde?

20210429102929_1.jpg


Dali is done, and their cores are, too!

20210429103541_1.jpg


Assam is assimilated. Coalition members are irrelevant to us at the moment.

20210429103601_1.jpg



And finally, Kachar is gone, too. Meaning our borders are looking cleaner than before!

But that's all I got for now. We're already about 100 years into the game, and we're not slowing down! Coalitions are starting to become a real nuisance, but I'm sure I'll figure out how to get around them. I always do!

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this second part!

This is the first AAR I'm catching live and I'm loving it!
But I'm always sad to see a big AI U, because after struggling to become kinda relevant, it always quickly falls to the impending doom that is the AAR-poster.

By the way, any plans for abusing the "concentrate development"-mechanic? It might make the run too casual, though.

Anyway, looking forward to the next chapter :)

HODL! (that goldmine)

The laugh is always on the loser. oof :p

Tik-Tok coming to India - colourized (2016)

I love this thing :)
INVEST IN GOLDCOIN! LET'S TAKE IT TO THOSE WALLSTREET FAT CATS!

I actually don't like continuously pointing out glaring issues with the products PDX sells, but I also can't ignore them. Holding companies accountable and informing potential buyers is the best thing I can do. Especially since I was gifted Leviathan and can't give it back.

I'm glad that you, and others, are enjoying! This was completely unplanned, both the AAR and the way I'm going about the WC, but I'm always happy to do horde stuff!

I have watched your old AAR and I will watch this one with interest.

Old AAR? Which one was that? Kaabu? Belgium? Sarig Yogir? Zoroafrica? Either way, I hope you'll enjoy this one!

This is the first AAR I'm catching live and I'm loving it!
But I'm always sad to see a big AI U, because after struggling to become kinda relevant, it always quickly falls to the impending doom that is the AAR-poster.

Glad to have you aboard! It's always a shame to kill rare tags that are doing well, but I'm well past the point of sentimentalism for countries holding me back.

And the concentrate dev mechanic does get use, but maybe not in the way you're thinking. Or maybe it IS the way you're thinking. I'm not a mind reader.

Ah, Kaabu! Right! Yeah, it's a shame that my old PC ate the save when it exploded. But I'm sure I'll return to the balkanized world again, with some new, dumb idea to go for!

Chapter 3: Coalition? What Is That, A Drink?

Hello everyone, and welcome back to YUAN! Having risen from the ground like a phoenix, or a really stubborn cockroach, Yuan decided it wasn't done with being in the spotlight of history, so Oirat changed their name and haircut so they could fit the role perfectly!

Anyways, we're horde-ing and having a good time, so let's keep going!

20210429104437_1.jpg


Ah, the return to the old ways. Hands down, the BEST horde event possible. More points from razing OR more morale would be great, but BOTH? AMAZING!

20210429104739_1.jpg


And finally, we are the sole owners of mainland China! Just ignore the one bit owned by Lan Xang, ok?

20210429105018_1.jpg


Speaking of Lan, Lan Na and their allies are going to be charged down and destroyed! FOR GLORY!

20210429105427_1.jpg


FOR GOLD! AND GLORY! BUT MOSTLY GOLD!

20210429105640_1.jpg


Ah, right. Coalition. That thing happened again. Well, we COULD peace out Lan Na, but it'll take a while to full annex them, what with how they're running around and we have to deal with the rest of their allies. So let's tackle the coalition HEAD ON in the meanwhile!

20210429110240_1.jpg


Ah, never mind that. Let's just give Mong Yang back to Mong Yang and call it a day. We can burn it again later.

Look, this isn't a loss. It's the modern version of paying the AI $100 to fuck off.

20210429110341_1.jpg


Next, Taunga is vassalized, because we're tired of their shit and would rather not fight them again. Plus, they indirectly expand our coring range by being our vassal.

20210429110536_1.jpg


And Lan Na is eaten in one big bite! Oh, the coalition? As I've said, I don't care about it. We'll just play through it!

20210429110648_1.jpg


'Oi gov, you 'Ava spot uv bad luck, innit?

I don't know that much British vernacular, let alone how to write it properly. But the joke fit, so I had to sit (metaphorically speaking.)

20210429111458_1.jpg


Ava, you were the dancing queen! Young and sweet, only 17!!!

Wait, no, I'm wrong, it was ABBA, not AVA that was the dancing queen. We're good!

20210429112753_1.jpg


Lan Xang got Xang'd in the showers, and now they're a lovely red color. AND we finally own all of the Chinese mainland, for real this time!

20210429114554_1.jpg


Next, our foray into Ayutthaya begins in full! Plus, we cobelligerentify Koho, a tributary we got on accident and want to kill ASAP.

20210429115306_1.jpg


So, off screen we ate Dai Viet and Koho, and now we're cracking the Ayutthayan spine and split them in two! We'll easily sweep the floor with them in the follow up wars!

20210429115612_1.jpg


Champa's claim to fame is being a few letters shy from being "Champion." But the only championship they're gonna win is the ass-kicked contest!

20210429120056_1.jpg


While we're busy kicking Champa's ass, we move onto their neighbor, Khmer. And they got allies that we have truces with, and that's against the rules! So we're gonna kick their ass, with karate that we learned from our Japanese province!

20210429120405_1.jpg


Ayutthaya gets a shorter truce, and a lighter purse. Also, Champa was eaten. They are NOT the champions! WE ARE!

20210429120523_1.jpg


Hsipaw put up a pathetic resistance, so they are sent packing!

20210429120732_1.jpg


And Khmer has had their butt sufficiently kicked, so they're willing to join us. And watch that coalition list dwindle!

20210429121003_1.jpg


Next up, to prevent too much issues with the Indian tags, we tributize Jaunpur. Honestly, we don't care if they pay us or not, we just want them in our sphere for the lowered AE gain.

20210429121954_1.jpg


Oh ho ho, next up is Kedah! We're getting close to the end of our SE. Asian escapades, at least the ones we can do easily without building ships to ferry troops across the seas!

20210429122429_1.jpg


Malacca got Marockka'd! We're making a solid amount of money from these peace deals, so we can work on our loan issue.

20210429122513_1.jpg


Deli lost all their lunch meats.

20210429122540_1.jpg


And Kedah is no longer a mid sized fish, as unfortunate as it is to do so. But oh well, they're definitely a good tag to eat, to lock down more trade dosh!

20210429122941_1.jpg


And next up? MORE WAR!

We're DOWing that small OPM in the southern Vietnam area, who was allied to a number of other small nations, including Orissa, for some reason. Oh well, if they want to die, we're willing to oblige that request!

20210429123226_1.jpg


New khan on the skull throne. 6/2/4 is pretty much all we need, especially considering how we don't really care much about our dip points right now.

20210429123540_1.jpg


Now, here's an interesting bit: we vassalize Orissa. We've officially taken a good sized bite out of India. Why did we vassalize instead of eat them directly? I DON'T KNOW! Probably AE. Or perhaps because I'd have to core the land one at a time due to not having a cored port or a land connection. Actually, I'm fairly certain that's the reason.

Also, the other OPMs in the war were annexed.

20210429123553_1.jpg


Ayutthaya? I heard that you joined a little club, a "coalition" of sorts. Well, it doesn't look like anyone important is in there. So unlike last time, I don't think there's going to be any reason for us to pay you $100. Hell, I don't think we'll pay a SINGLE CENT!

20210429124534_1.jpg


No siree, we won't be paying a cent. Instead, YOU'LL be paying, and dearly at that!

20210429124914_1.jpg


Andhra decided they also wanted to make a coalition. Unfortunately for them, it was only them and their nerd friends that joined them, so now it's time for us JOCKS to give them atomic wedgies!

20210429125749_1.jpg


Next, as we're starting to get a lot of money, and fast, we finally get the economy mission, so we can build manufactories cheaper and faster!

Or would they be manure-factories? What with being a horde and all?

20210429125920_1.jpg


Now, this is something that we've been doing in the background for a while now. Building relations and favors with the Turks. Why? Because it's cheaper (and free!) to ask them for cash, instead of taking loans or corruption to fund our manufactories!

Isn't 1.31 grand, getting money for nothing?

20210429130045_1.jpg


Andhra is gone, and now we have some official toeholds in central-eastern India!

20210429130213_1.jpg


The best training is constant warfare? I'd say I'm surprised, but I'm not a liar!

20210429130348_1.jpg


Now, 14 years after the spawn of the printing press, we embrace it for just shy of 3k shekels. We also have the radical reforms event, which we are saving for one thing...

20210429130416_1.jpg


We teched up admin with the saved points, got the dip ready for the next tech, and unlocked religious ideas! I mean, what one faith would be complete without it?

20210429130805_1.jpg


Alright Malacca, it's time for your medicine! And by medicine, I mean OUR BULLETS!

I somehow don't have a picture of the peace, but you'll see the new map soon enough.

20210429153153_1.jpg


Oh, hey Otto? Can I borrow a cup of cash? kthxbye.

20210429154642_1.jpg


OK, so we took a good chunk from Malacca, giving us access to the rest of the island. So Deli, it's time to get munched on!

20210429154740_1.jpg


Malacca gets a short truce, we'll finish them off soon enough. Deli, though, gets eaten.

20210429155919_1.jpg


OK, now that we've mostly dealt with the coalition (insofar as that there aren't enough Hindus to hate us to form one), we can finally start crashing into India. Vijay, you're the biggest one here,, so we HAVE to kill you. It's the law!

20210429160315_1.jpg


OK, not the best land for us to engage in, but we can probably do this with our 40k men!

20210429160331_1.jpg


... Or maybe not :oops:

Ah, that explains it: VJ has 70k men. So we're going to need to either split them up and crush them separately, or we'll need to bring in reinforcements.

OR, we can just attack them on flat terrain! That also works! ;)

Yeah, the terrain modifiers really make the difference.

Ah, why not? Bengal, we have the land we want occupied, so come on in! We mostly just want to limit the AE you get with us, so we don't need to start chunking away at the grand sunni coalition TOO too early!

And here's the magnificent peace deal. We carved right through VJ, grabbing as many forts as we could, leaving them vulnerable for future wars against us, or their neighbors.

But that's all I have today, be sure to tune in next time for more horde shenanigans!

Ah, Kaabu! Right! Yeah, it's a shame that my old PC ate the save when it exploded. But I'm sure I'll return to the balkanized world again, with some new, [redacted] idea to go for!
I think some readers were supporting the idea of doing a jewish Siemen run. So maybe that'll tickle your fancy.

Seeing how the Ottomans are being so friendly, I get the feeling that they won't be immediately assimilated on your arrival in the Middle East. At least not until another friendly nation decides to pay you handsomely for protection being such a swell guy!
