4. Finally, victory!

After our truce with Muscowy expired, we declared war against them again. Russian winter was really hard for us and we frequently retreated from their land. And this was our first chance to destroy a Muscowy army.


After series of hard fought battle, we finally subdued Muscowy, long live Khagan Qutlugh.


Of course our demand granted.


God pleased by what we done, praised our glory to Muslim nations. Then we heard that our brothers in Azow suffering at the hands Genoans and god wishes (imams told) us liberate them.


By our tradition, we sent a warning to Genoa.


Meantime we began convert our newly acquired lands to the right religion.


When we heard news of persecution of our brothers yet again, our mighty Khagan said "Enough is enough", so our declaration of war handed Genoa and her allies.


For us Mongolians emissary was important person. He knows language of sending country and have a good knowledge. But those Barbarians in the east and west executes them, thus we have no choice to eradicate them from map. Finding another person who knows foreign language in steppes was almost impossible.

Russians say Moscow burned two times. First time was Batu Khagan's Mongolian Army burned it. Second time it was Napoleon, i think you know what happened this time.
Actually, the second time the Russian army burned it to break the french spirit.
It was a determining factor in Napoleons defeat.

5. Rebellions.

War against Genoans proceeded as planned. We gave them harsh lesson.


After this war, our imams said that "God wishes us to become leading Muslim Khaganate".


Before completing god's wish our ally Candar declared war against Armenia, which is guaranteed by Byzantine. We honoured our alliance declared war upon both of them.


We become leading Khaganate in Muslim world. Then god wished from us conquering Kursk from Lithuanians.


Of course we sent warning to their brother Poland. :D


Meanwhile we have received very interesting news from our spy in Novgorod.


Russian principalities fighting each other again. This is time to attack.


When we got a chance to attack Lithuania, we stopped our aggression.


But we didn't know what lied ahead of us. On christian date 23 November, 1433 our great Khagan died of illness without arranged heir to the throne. Hard time began.


With fighting between rightful heirs new king Temur Qutlugh I came victorious. Everyone swear loyalty to new king! His first order was "Attack Nogai". We all supported this, because Nogai has been sent to us enough insults, even warned us. They'll pay the price of insulting our great Khaganate!


With victory almost neared, we got news that Novgorod has been attacked by resurgent Yaroslavl. Despite Novgorod is our enemy we decided to help them in order to get rid of powerful Yaroslavl.


Soon become clear that it was right decision.


Eastern war against Nogai is finished with our incredible victory.


Meantime our army engaged with Yaroslavl is main army. Even our army lose, it's decided for Yaroslavl. They have been attacked by all other Russian principalities.


Let me show you our army's recent achievement in the map.


We got this map from a Catholic Priest (it might be he came from Naples) whose wandering around the world.

First time I played with Timurid, Timur died within 3 months, I had a succession crisis, and the Ottomans were still not defeated ... I didn't like that game.

You seem to have come out of the succession quite fine.

To Enewald: May be. :D
To Didaa: I think the priest got protestant mark.
To Duke of Wellington: It was quite hard, I was warring Poland Lithuania. I've got white peace with them. I suppressed it by brute force. My army limit was 45:45.
To Urcules: Ruler dying within 3 months is quite unlucky. I wondered why my king isn't dying, is he immortal? :D

In my current game as Austria, my king died in 6 months, the sucessor inherited Holland, quite lucky me :D

6. Which plan?

War against Yaroslavl ended with our convincing victory, thus allowing us control northern regions. Then followed by years of peace. During this time many of our great intellectuals passed way.


New generation brought new ideas, including "House of Worship".


But peaceful time allowed our nobles feuding against each other.


To stop this feuding we called "Ikh Khuraldai" (Great Meeting). We discussed all possible actions that will stop our inner fighting and reached one decision, attack Russian Principalities and subjugate them. However one thing is not decided is how to defeat them.


Plan A: Wipe out. Muscowy army first, then siege Tverian provinces. After Tver accepts subjugation, we will defeat Novgorod forces, then siege Muscowy provinces. Finally after Muscowy subjugated, we will push for Novgorod.
Plan B: Wait to come Russian combined force in our land. Then destroy them until their last soldier.
Plan C: Making truce with Novgorod and all our aim will be remaining two principalities Muscowy and Tver.
Plan D: Other...
Still it's not decided. So we are looking from guidance from our wise advisors.

Here is our current map (1455):


We got this map (1455) from the catholic (some say he is not catholic, he is heretic, but for us no difference) priest and his followers.

I like plan A. It seems fun and could help you win the war very fast. On the other hand if they get a lucky victory then the whole plan could fall apart. So I therefore recommend going for plan B. Wait for them to enter your territories then annihlate them. With your all cavalry armies it shouldn't be hard. How big are the armies of the Russians?

Muscowy has 8000 infantry, 7000 cavalry. Tver got no more than 4000 soldiers. I've got no information about Novgorod, i think they have no more than Muscowy army. This all means their combined armies are: 34000. Our army which will fight against Russians are 35000 (25000 cavalry). Also if our allies' army comes, it will be great help. Our allies are Ottoman, Qara Koyunlu, Candar, Nogai, Georgia and Ryazan.
Ottoman is very powerful right now, but I suspect if they send their army to help us, then they will be finished by rebellions.

Edited: One more thing is Sultanate of Yaroslavl occupied half of the former Novgorod territories. They can be our target for subjugation
