Chapter 4: The Grand Sunni Coalition

Hello everyone, welcome back to Yuan! Last time, we had some war. And there was also some war. Oh, and who could forget about the war?

Oh, and there was a little bit of war here and there, too.

Alright, that should bring you up to speed, so let's get back at it!

20210429162426_1.jpg


First off, let's borrow money from the 1st Turkish Bank. Wait, borrow implies that we're going to be giving it back. Um, I guess we just wandered around the streets and found 1243 ducats just lying around. Oh well, finders keepers!

20210429162917_1.jpg


Next, we're aiming to "borrow" ;) some land from Ayutthaya and their allies.

20210429163125_1.jpg


And now that we have a lot more access all over the place, it's the PERFECT time to tackle Malacca! It's going to be a pain getting that island province, so hopefully we can sneak it in this war! Because navies are FOR CHUMPS! And we're not chumps!

20210429163818_1.jpg


Pegu gets punched into oblivion. We're aiming to lock down as much of the asian trade as possible, something I had somewhat neglected during my last AAR foray as a horde. Not entirely, but I DID leave the East Indies alone for longer than I should have.

20210429164128_1.jpg


Yeah, I expected as much. The combined naval power of Malacca and Brunei was too much for me to fully occupy them. Oh well, at least we got something out of this!

20210429164309_1.jpg


Now, time to get things rolling. We have a lot of free diplo slots, so why not just vassalize Pagarfadsjklfjasdkhgfasjkghkajsd. Too many syllables, I'm not gonna even bother pretending like I can spell that name. Honestly, it's probably less offensive if I just give up instead of murdering it with an honest attempt.

20210429165236_1.jpg


And this is why we weren't fussed about not full annexing Malacca. We have another way in, and this time, there's no real naval power around to stop us!

20210429165656_1.jpg


GOT YOUR ISLAND, BITCH!!

20210429165805_1.jpg


And now, we own one of the 3 major islands. We'll get the rest soon enough. But we'll need more transports to do that. And maybe... ACTUAL SHIPS! :eek:

20210429165932_1.jpg


Ah, right, Europe got revealed. Nothing special, other than a pretty weak reformation. Granted, it popped in 1507, which is the closest I've ever seen it get to the historical date (barring player intervention, of course). But still, I'm used to seeing half of the HRE, and some parts of France and Italy, going blue by this point.

20210429170332_1.jpg


Next on our list for trade domination is Tirhut. We're mostly looking at their allies, and not Tirhut themselves. Plus, Jaunpur won't join, so now's the perfect time for a blitzkrieg!

20210429170409_1.jpg


2 months, and Vijay's truce got reset. Excellent.

20210429171448_1.jpg


OK, time to put the white elephant out of its misery. Got a small army ready to just roll them over and end it as quickly as possible.

20210429171600_1.jpg


But, while we finish consolidating Indochina, we finally start looking westwards. That's right, we're going to start chunking into the grand sunni coalition! HUZZAH!

20210429171846_1.jpg


Annexed and cores revoked. Glorious.

20210429172520_1.jpg


This is the peacedeal we take with Transoxiana. We're cautious about how much AE we take (granted, we're only 8 WS shy of 100% peacedealing them), because the amount of sunni nations is STAGGERING. Seriously, if we let it form, a grand sunni coalition would be almost like a Vietnam or Afghanistan for us. I say almost, because unlike the US or Soviets, we wouldn't give up and lose. It'd just really, REALLY slow us down.

20210429172628_1.jpg


Anyways, this is why we took such snake-y land in the peace deal. Samarkand has some GREAT wonders. Like this one here, which, at its max, gives -15% WS cost vs other religions.

So yeah, that's basically a perma-version of the age of reformations bonus. Only stipulation is that Samarkand must remain Sunni (and I think either Altaic or Persian culture group. A lot of wonders have that as a secondary requirement, culture of some sort.)

20210429172644_1.jpg


Additionally, we managed to snag the Buddha Statues, which will give us an additional missionary, so long as we flip the province to Theravada.

Why Theravada and not any of the other branches of Buddhism? Well, that's because when coding the wonders, they specifically listed BUDDHISM as the requirement. And old guard players (like myself) will remember that, before being split in 3, Buddhism used to be a single, unified religion called "Buddhism" (shocker, I know. I would have thought they'd call it "Funny Big Eared Elephant That Can Fly," but apparently that's just "Dumbo."). And, when they made the switch, Theravada kept the code tag of "Buddhism."

So, basically, Theravada is the only real school of Buddhism in PDX's eyes.

20210429173228_1.jpg


Bengal now hates us. Good, we hate them and how they're squatting on our land!

20210429173535_1.jpg


Hi Vijay! Remember us? We're here to borrow a cup of sugar. By any means necessary. :cool:

20210429174306_1.jpg


Tirhut is gone, we don't need them around anymore.

20210429174709_1.jpg


And we keep splitting Vijay into pieces.

Honestly, I'm surprised Bahmanis hasn't jumped on the smoldering corpse, considering they have neighboring, undefendable land they could get.

20210429180042_1.jpg


Alright, we're finally done with you, Malacca! Time to meet your maker!

20210429180240_1.jpg


Oh, and speaking of makers, the HRE is now FINALLY starting to debate whether or not they want to have the gold "t" with a little man on it, or the blue "t" without the little man on it, as their favorite flavor of "t". I, personally, prefer purple "t" with an additional line crossed through it.

20210429180746_1.jpg


Now, thanks to Malacca, we have a proper foothold in Borneo. Who needs a naval invasion when you have proper planning instead!

20210429181424_1.jpg


And Malacca finally gets into the backka my trackka, gets driven to an isolated field, and gets cappa'd.

20210429181735_1.jpg


TECH 17! TECH 17! ADMIN EFFICIENCY GET!

20210429181947_1.jpg


Ok, Gilligan, what are you doing here? Why aren't you on that island with the skipper and the professor?! What, you're not Gilligan, you're just Gilan? WHY I AUGHTA!!

20210429182151_1.jpg


Uzbek has no friends. So we decide to give them a warm embrace.

20210429182328_1.jpg


Justified wars? We needed justification? Whoops!

20210429183030_1.jpg


Uzbek got the biggest hug they've ever seen in their entire life, they never want to leave that embrace!

20210429183202_1.jpg


Ugh, trash heir, hope he dies, or we die before he hits 15 so we get a better one.

20210429183605_1.jpg


Now, we're finally getting some monuments going online. We payed the initial 1k to start upgrading, but for a mere 300, we can speed things up. If we wanted to, we could spend 2.5k ducats to upgrade it to the next level in ONE DAY!

But we won't go that far, not yet at least. Still working on getting manufactories up and running!

20210429184153_1.jpg


Gilligan now wishes he never got off that island. Not that it'd make him any safer, but he doesn't need to know that!

20210429184334_1.jpg


Now that we're at peace, we use this time to threaten land from Sunda. And it works! WHO NEEDS A BOAT, ANYWAYS?!

20210429184717_1.jpg


AND, Delhi becomes our vassal. They have a lot of cores we can snag for super cheap!

20210429184738_1.jpg


And that also includes via threatening war!

20210501195657_1.jpg


Now, after several, SEVERAL decades, we finally decide to swap our synthetic religion to sunni. It'll give us less AE when we take sunni land, since we're considered to be sunni ourselves. Probably should have done that earlier, but eh, not a big deal.

20210501195705_1.jpg


Plus, doing so means that we are no longer a heathen to sunni nations. And that means the Ottomans will have us as allies!

Easiest way to stop the sunni coalition from forming is to take away the Turks from them. Do that, and they'll almost never form one, especially at our size!

20210501195824_1.jpg


Chagatai, you're in a bit of an awkward spot. Mind handing over more land to us, so it's not as awkward? Thanks!

20210501201154_1.jpg


Oh, shoot, we didn't take any Chagatian land. Just Kazakh and Nogain land. Darn, I must have misread the peace papers. ;)

20210501202002_1.jpg


Transoxiana, it's time for round two! I hope you're ready to rumble!

20210501202408_1.jpg


Sibir got peaced out, but honestly, that was because we didn't want to siege down all that massive land. We'll do that later.

20210501202647_1.jpg


Huh. We lost. I mean, we definitely need more cannons, but really? A loss? Oh well, we killed way more than we had die, so who cares. Manpower is just a number, at least for us!

20210501202937_1.jpg



And finally, we eat the northern half of Transoxiana! We've officially started our assault on the grand sunni coalition, and we'll be doing everything we can to keep it from forming and impeding our progress!

But that's all for now, I hope you enjoyed this part!

I'm in awe of how fast you are doing this, makes me look like a kid when I'm playing my games.
That's the power of hordes, baby! Even then, I've been really casual about things, if I went hardcore sweaty mode from the beginning, I'd probably be almost done with the entirety of Asia. But this is a relaxing run, no need for headaches or heartaches here!

Chapter 5: Absolutism? Yes. Always.

Hello, welcome back to Yuan and their buddhist escapades! Sorry for going AWOL for a week, my GF wanted me to spend some more time with her during the week, and so I didn't have access to my screenshots for a while.

Anyways, you don't care about that stuff, so let's just get back into the good stuff: LOOTING AND PILLAGING!

20210501203040_1.jpg


First off, we finally restored horde rule over the steppe, and now we have actual claims on the rich lands of Persia. Mmmmm, cheap rugs, delicious.

20210501204105_1.jpg


But, we don't use any of those perma claims yet. Instead, we DoW Haasa, and co belligerentify the Mamluks. Why? Because I have a plan, that's why!

20210501204616_1.jpg


And while we're at it, let's finally control the spice. It must flow, but only into our pocket!

20210501205207_1.jpg


University event? Of course we'll take the free stability! Who needs forward thinkers when you have PILLAGING?

20210501210109_1.jpg


Hejaz, we don't want to own your land yet, so you keep it under wraps for us, OK? We'll be back at 5 on Sunday to pick them up, don't have too much fun you rascal, you!

20210501210405_1.jpg


Baluchistan gets off with a light warning. I don't know why I didn't eat them separately. Maybe there was an alliance that they had that would have been useful for a free truce reset? IDK, that's probably it.

20210501210740_1.jpg


Not a full annex, but the spice flows freely to Khanbaliq!

20210501212345_1.jpg


Vijay, it's time for another partitioning! And Bahmanis, shame on you for not pouncing on your weak neighbor when they were ally-less!

20210501215343_1.jpg


9 years ahead of time? Who cares, we'll take our next idea group, please!

20210501215352_1.jpg


And, of course, we take humanist. Less rebels and more stability, best thing since sliced bread. Also, it ties really well with our humanist-lite idea group (horde)!

20210501215549_1.jpg


Now, we peace out the Mamluks for a very, VERY strategic peace. We get the Suez canal zone, some cash, and we make the Mamluks lose their cores on Syria. If we didn't do that, it's highly likely that the Ottomans would have dropped us, gone hostile, and allowed coalitions of sunnis to form against us. So we had to tread lightly.

But we got what we wanted from the Haasa war. Why go through all this trouble for 2 provinces?

1623747800648.png


20210501220139_1.jpg


Bye bye, small fry!

20210501220216_1.jpg


We are cutting it CLOSE. On a razor's edge, here. But close is still good enough.

20210501220329_1.jpg


Vijay loses a lot of coastline, as well as the stuff by Orissa. May as well take the land if the neighbors are passing it up, after all!

20210501221302_1.jpg


I think I took this after loading the save, which reset the AI and everything, so now we're back in black with the Turks. Good to go, for now at least!

20210501221455_1.jpg


Hmmm, Delhi has a lot of cores we can retrieve for them. Why don't we do that, huh Multan?

20210501221741_1.jpg


Gujurat lives to die another day. Congrats on the life, Guj!

20210501221834_1.jpg


Sibir, you've been sitting there as an annoying blob, doing nothing. We'll fix that for you.

20210501222546_1.jpg


Delhi gets their Jaunpuri cores back. See, we can be nice to our subjects!

20210501223019_1.jpg


And now, we get an extra 5% admin efficiency from the age ability. We're going to be ramping up now, that's for sure!

20210501223219_1.jpg


Multan gives back the remaining Delhi cores, as well as some key provinces that will make future wars easier. No more forts for you!

20210501224816_1.jpg


Now, for our next trick, we declare war on Mewar! I mean, it's in their name, after all. They're always clamoring for "me war! Me war!" after all!

20210501225125_1.jpg


Vijay gets a white peace. Too much land to eat as a non co belligerent, so may as well get them in a big chunk next time!

20210501225500_1.jpg


Darn, we are really being limited by our admin efficiency. I know it's only 1621, but still!

20210501225941_1.jpg


Also, some time before the war with Bahmanis, Portugal sniped Goa via their mission event, so we couldn't take it in the war. But we're going to rectify that, post haste! And you know what, Ottomans, you can come too! I trust you can take care of all the work, right?

20210501230128_1.jpg


Because I have claims to attend to, starting with Transoxiana!

20210501230951_1.jpg


Ladakh got lapped up nicely!

20210501231600_1.jpg


And unfortunately, Transoxiana manages to survive as an OPM. Not happy about that, not at all. :mad:

20210501232741_1.jpg


Portugal conceded a lot a land to us, mostly colonial islands and the like, as well as Algarve. Now we have our foothold in Europe!

20210501233229_1.jpg


Oh, right, we had something going with Gujurat? I'm not sure, but it looks like it got resolved.

20210501234033_1.jpg


Vijay, come out and play-ay!

Also we DoW'd Sunda at some point, again. I guess I got a bit TOO casual with my screenshot taking. Whoops.

20210501234058_1.jpg


Hmmm, the 3/4/4 wouldn't have been bad, but I guess we can deal with a 1/6/3. Really unbalanced statwise, but I'm not gonna savescum rulers, that's kinda lame.

20210501234107_1.jpg


But hey, at least his heir is fantastic! And he's 8, too, so we just need to live 7 years at least, and we get him as a ruler!

20210501234259_1.jpg


Next age ability, more passive absolutism. We already have some from having control of our crownland, but more passive upticks are better!

20210501234640_1.jpg


Sunda is Sundead.

20210501234722_1.jpg


Vijay is ALMOST dead. We can't take the land that's occupied, unfortunately. If they survive, we'll kill them for sure next time!

Spoilers, they don't survive.

20210501235358_1.jpg


Gujarat, thanks for eating Vijay for us! But, Bahmanis, we're disappointed that you never ONCE targeted your yellow rival. So now we're going to give you a stern talking to about that unacceptable behavior!

20210501235747_1.jpg


And a VERY stern talking to it was! I'm not sure they learned their lesson, though...

20210502000510_1.jpg


OK, Fars? You're now the biggest Persian tag in Persia, so you're the new target. I'm sure you've prepared for this, and are ready to rumble. What, you didn't? You DID see the memo, right? If you could get on that, that'd be great.

20210502000910_1.jpg


Transoxiana is now gone forever. Look at all those cores just disappear!

20210502001340_1.jpg


Next on the to do list: Jaunpur and Afghanistan! May as well consolidate the region while we're in the area, right?

20210502002339_1.jpg


You're gonna go Fars, kid? Nah, I think you got fed a lie there. Fars away, maybe.

20210502002621_1.jpg


Ottomans, with a war against Russia and France? I guess we can join, but it's not like we want to do anything or anything.

This is why you don't want allies, so freaking needy, my God. :rolleyes:

20210502003107_1.jpg


Afghanistan is now an OPM. Really, REALLY need that admin efficiency boost.

20210502003231_1.jpg


And finally, Jaunpur is Jaundead. Does that make sense? As a pun, no. As an explanation about the screenshot? Yes. Do I care enough to make the change and think about something else to put here instead? Eh, kinda, but since this is the end of the chapter I don't really have the energy to do so.

I hope you enjoyed and I'll see you soon!

You DID see the memo, right? If you could get on that, that'd be great.
Is that an Office Space reference? Nice.
You're gonna go Fars, kid? Nah, I think you got fed a lie there. Fars away, maybe.
Loving the pun.
I noticed there weren't any tasty links interspersed in at least this chapter and the one before. Are they too much effort for the response you get?

Anyway, it really looks like you've got the Sunni menace under control. Would it be considered the Green Scare? Who knows.
I'm looking forward to the next chapter! I've got the feeling that soon you're going to make some surprise friends in Africa ;)

Is that an Office Space reference? Nice.

Loving the pun.
I noticed there weren't any tasty links interspersed in at least this chapter and the one before. Are they too much effort for the response you get?

Anyway, it really looks like you've got the Sunni menace under control. Would it be considered the Green Scare? Who knows.
I'm looking forward to the next chapter! I've got the feeling that soon you're going to make some surprise friends in Africa ;)

Yes, it was an Office Space reference, good eye. And I would have added in links if I hadn't had to rewrite this part 3 times due to it getting eaten by internet goblins or whatever. So this was literally my "the hell with it, at least it's out there now" version. Hopefully I can go back to throwing in some links here and there in the next part.

And yes, the green menace is now limited to the typical green menace. And even then, they're not scary. And that's not just because we're allied!

What's your navy like at the moment?

My navy?

Who needs a navy when you have a direct land connection around all of Asia?

But right now it's maybe 30 transports and some inherited light ships. The naval game has never been fun for me, so I tend to ignore it. :p

The conquest ramps up! It looks like nothing can stop the Yuan now.

How are you managing Religious Unity?
