Oyo Empire​



The Oyo Empire was a Yoruba empire of what is today western and northern Nigeria. Established in the 14th century, the Oyo Empire grew to become one of the largest West African states encountered by pre-colonial explorers. It rose through the outstanding organizational skills of the Yoruba, wealth gained from trade and its powerful cavalry. The Oyo Empire was the most politically important state in the region from the mid-17th to the late 18th century, holding sway not only over most of the other kingdoms in Yorubaland, but also over nearby African states, notably the Fon Kingdom of Dahomey in the contemporary republic of Benin to the west.


Short term goals:
Annex Benin
Survive a possible attack from Hausa

Mid term goals:
Gain as much coastline as possible to increase the chances of gaining a CoT when Timbuktu gets starved
Annex or vassalize all of western Africa
Fortify every province

Long term goals:

Westernize
Control all of Africa
Become a major imperialist power



House rules:
No cheese
Stay pagan throughout the entire game
anything else?



Made this upon request. Let's see for how long I can survive.

First mission is to annex Benin. The game clearly wants us to become a colonial power. :rolleyes:

3927B6872EE5C63A30D55A6E5F895A2E55A5F0F4


To be able to become a rich and powerful kingdom we need to centralize the state.

3927B6872EE5C63A30D55A6E5F895A2E55A5F0F4


We raise a regiment of mercenaries and declare war on Benin. We need to be quick in order to snatch Benin before Hausa does so. A few days after us Hausa follows our footsteps and declare war on Benin. We get there first and destroy their army. We demand their full annexation.

D32BE4F32EC21AD7649D1350BB93E22812FD27FB



Next mission is to create an army for our nation. This is fairly simple since our forcelimits are three regiments. Our main rival Hausa has three regiments in their southern provinces and two more in their northern provinces. We disband our mercenary regiment and raise four more regiments and prepare to take on Hausa.

E7E2CD540C67AE84FBD093EAF4F95DCBBE0BA509



Their army of three thousand men are routed and retreat into Idah. The army is then annihilated by the natives, allowing us to seize their capital of Bonny and the neighboring province of Calabar.

C1738D48897FE1CE890706F369351AE54B509BC2


They're not willing to accept peace, and since I lack conquistadors I can't march through the undiscovered territories to capture their northern provinces. The war has come to a stand-still as I wait for their war exhaustion to rise and make them more willing to accept a peace offer.

I know that, but I didn't know that Hausa had a province to the north west of Nupe. Thanks for the sub.

Is selling provinces to a vassal considered too gamey?

Fighting these natives will be a pain though, since they are numerous and (I think Nupe has 5k if I remember correctly from playing Songhai) actually better fighters than your starting infantry. Hausa-north might catch you with your pants down there.

Selling provinces isn't gamey, if there's a legitimate reason. It's just you as overlord shuffling your duchies. (That ought to be a euphemism.)

Indeed. Took about four years to kill the natives of one province.

Selling provinces isn't gamey, if there's a legitimate reason. It's just you as overlord shuffling your duchies. (That ought to be a euphemism.)

Sounds about right.

Good so far. I told you my suggestions on Skype. :)

The current issues are quite easy, but I dread the day when the Europeans arrive.

Theres a few starting issues with Oyo that can being fustrating :p ranging from the need to get through those damn natives with so little manpower/troops to trying to deal with Mali (or in one of my games a super Ashanti). With my game Europe was easy to deal with.

A quick peace is signed with Hausa, since exterminating the natives to be able to reach the northern Hausan provinces would take so long I'd get a forced white peace.

3WwoqR3.jpg


The Ethiopian oppression of fellow animists caused the province of Massawa to defect to us. I don't want it, as it's on the other side of the continent and it's going to slow down my already abysmal tech rate. Though I must say I chuckled a bit when it happened.

AhpKnuz.jpg


We take another step towards a modern and centralized state.

om32lm7.jpg


An event moved us towards free subjects.

JNbuZIl.jpg


Another event gave an increase of base tax in Oyo.

SnWyUIl.jpg


The mighty pig-god wants us to conquer more land from the muslims.

bdmZrU0.jpg


We hire an adviser to help improve our army.

2eNTUhH.jpg


While he has some unorthodox ideas, our glorious high elder, in his justness and glory, heeds his advice. Unfortunately his ideas were about our nations trade policies.

fH3p4F2.jpg


We declare war on Hausa, and get an untimely revolt.

akydjsC.jpg


Realizing that we cannot seize the Hausan capital we agree on a white peace, and focus on stopping the revolt.

MEYTwXS


In a stroke of genius, our High Elder realizes that the provinces of Bonny and Calabar are of Ashantese culture, he supports a revolt, in hopes that they would defect to Ashanti.

Yt9TOwv.jpg


While waiting for the rebels to do their work, we centralize the state even further.

Gi9Bi3F.jpg


The genius plan is successful, though deceit and trickery are not held high in the eyes of the pig-god. As a punishment, he orders us to save his followers in Tigre, on the other side of the continent.

azISEyf.jpg


Ignoring the will of the pig-god, our High Elder seizes control over previous Hausa-territory.

AhDdQKj.jpg


Intoxicated with success and snus, our High Elder disobeys the pig-god.

XxNNPb8.jpg


As you can expect, this is not appreciated.

sfBJiiu.jpg


Our new High Elder is quick to put the blame on the tribe of Ashanti, and his punishment is swift and relentless.

YFTmXLJ.jpg


With Mali already at war with Ashanti, our High Elder sees a chance to strike.

yrkHqgD.jpg


After a quick visit to the bank of Timbuktu, our High Elder offers peace.

Our vassal Ashanti grabs what's left.

A few years later we were once again at war with Mali. They had started to recover from the previous tribal succession crisis, so we broke the truce and struck before they had a chance to recuperate.


OZ7DJDF.jpg


The goal with this war was the coastal CoT in Cayor. As you can judge from the picture, the goal was achieved. Jenne and Segu was later sold to Ashanti for 20 ducats a piece.

ZkBGpMY.jpg


Oyo now has a 50% bonus to defense. Too bad 50% of 0 is 0. This was surely the pig-god playing us a prank.


iJ3gWXz.jpg


We encourage divination, giving us a -1 revolt risk in exchange for a stability cost increase of 8%. Since being animistic gives a huge reduction of in stability cost (33% IIRC) this decision is a no-brainer.


GLEpkPZ.jpg


Mali collapsed, somehow defecting three provinces to Hausa.


WTB3OWf.jpg


Our glorious High Elder sees an opportunity to once again strike at Mali.

Mali's part of the war, not even lasting six months, was very uneventful, seeing as Mali lacked both troops and forts. We still have Songhai to deal with though.

We make a move towards innovative.

Having cleared out the natives of Nupe a few years back, we strike Songhai from two fronts. Our land tech advantage makes this war a walk in the park. The Songhain army is routed and wiped.

Having occupied almost all Songhain territory, our High Elder goes to visit the Songhain National Bank.

Unfortunately, our High Elder tripped on the way out, landing face-down in a pile of cow-dung. The National Guard tried to save him, but it was too late.

Both Wolof and Bambuk are sold to Ashanti, as I want to avoid going over ten provinces. The incapable ruler effects would would lower my infamy limit too much right now.

For the same reason, we cancel our current mission in hopes of getting a better one.

Our High Elder obeys the will of the pig-god and declare yet another war against Mali.

To help in our current war, we pass a recruiting act, moving us one step towards quantity and one step towards innovative, among with giving us a manpower and reinforcement bonus.

It is time for the annual visit to the bank.

Shortly after, we make peace with Mali, filling our coffers and pleasing the pig-god.

Unfortunately, the whims of the pig-god are not understandable to mere men.

At least to our High Elder.

For now, the pig-god was understanding, and wanted us to take yet another province from Mali.
