Good start. This'll be interesting to watch, I've never seen a Ryukyu AAR before.

How did you transport your army over? Ryukyu starts with only one cog. I'm assuming you built some more, but wouldn't that have given Makassar time to build a larger army?

I though I'd tried everything with Ryukyu, Tuore if you manage this I'll be so jealous, I wanted to do the first successful Ryukyu AAR! :eek:o

I had 1 cog. I started to recruit a mercenary unit, and meanwhile I transported the starting unit to Makassar. Then I went back and took the mercenary to Makassar too. What really decided the battle was my ruler as general (he had 2 shock) and my +10 morale advisor.

Ah I see! I tried the Makassar strategy once or twice but I was never able to get the second unit over in time before the first died. Hmm-I think I'm going to go and try that myself! Thanks! :D

Update: Well I can annex Makassar, but I still get DoWed by Manchu and Korea, followed by annexation. I can't wait to see if you can shrug those guys off.

Good luck. I've never managed to survive with Ryukuy without reloading.

Mind you, if Paradox fixes prestige and legitimacy rounding(The fact that prestige gain +1/year gets rounded to 0/year and prestige loss -0.3/year to -1.2/year is actually rather painful when you are teetering on the edge of oblivion. That it happens to legitimacy too is just icing on the cake.), I might have to try to tackle the reloading problem, and make an AAR about forming the Mughal Empire with Ryukuy.

How many tries did it take? :rofl:
I fail at every non-European nation. I'm just neither capable of playing Tribal governments, nor Animists. Is Ryukyu a monarchy or a tribal government?

Chapter II: Survival of the Pagans

About one month after the end of the Makassar War, Korea declares war.



I am pretty much crushed in every battle. While moving my fleet to a dock, it gets destroyed. Soon Korea lands into Makassar:



I decide not to care about anything. I recruit 3 mercenary regiments and slowly head towards bankruptcy.
Makassar is lost in the same year:


But, strangely, in early 1402, Korea offers peace:



I accept.

We have survived. But the situation doesn't look good.

Welcome to square one :(

In fact, square zero, as you now have no fleet, inflation and no Makassar as a target (until it revolts).
Time to try Majapahit, or just lie low for a bit?
