  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk’nam: The military and economy continue to be built up. Great Chief Cornelius Tuch’huelpe, having been on the throne for 35 years, takes ill with a stomach infection in February and succumbs two months later at the age of 73. Cornelius is mourned throughout the land, and poets declare “David birthed the Haruwin, but Cornelius brought it to manhood!” Word is sent to Rafael in Wales, asking him to send back designs for a mausoleum as a final service to the Chief he once served, and in remembrance of his homeland. Vincent Hgog’nav’ich the architect dedicates a new chapel in the Ona Yagich cathedral to Cornelius, declaring that, “The boy Tuch’huelpe came with his circus of dancing guanacos, but the man Tuch’huelpe left us with a nation of civilized men who took their place with the great nations of Christendom”. A massive funeral takes place in Ona Yagich, in which the now-gigantic circus that brought Tuch’huelpe to prominence leads a procession of warriors and nobles through the streets of Ona Yagich, putting on the the wildest display of fire and acrobatics in it’s history. It is said that, “the streets of Ona Yagich were aflame that day in a way they have never been again”. The body of the Chief, covered in gold decorations, is carried by six men – two acrobats representing his youth, a noble and a Maugholdian representing the expansion of the Haruwin, and finally by Vincent H’gog’navich and a seldom-seen Michael Angelus representing the building projects of his later years. His wife, Sarah Yu’arik’nam and only daughter Rachel Te’kina’hnam, follow behind in tears. Tuch’huelpe has left no sons, and Rachel is placed in charge of the circus along with her two daughters (who are both guanaco riding acrobats). The election of the new Great Chief is a matter of great contention, as many chiefs from many different groups are vying for power. It is thought that that John Chongat, the grandson of David Chongat Yagich and a local chief in Ona Yagich, will win election among the Council of Chiefs. However, he surprisingly falls short of a majority on the first ballot. It was thought that he would win all votes from the two thirds of the nobles who were Catholic and most of those who were not - but he carries only the votes from Ona Yagich and the Eastern Penininsula. The non-Catholic third of the nobility, who were expected to splinter to candidates representing their various religious sects, instead unite behind the young Lord of Miyako Yagich, Laozi Ctli’ich. This choice was unexpected, as Ctli’ich represents the pure Taoists of Miyako Yagich rather than larger Hain of Lao Tzu syncretism which dominates the rural West. Instead of choosing a candidate of the largest sect, the Hainist and Teushen nobles have selected a candidate from the most civilized non-Catholic sect in hopes of winning votes. Perhaps most surprisingly, the devoutly Catholic nobles of K’onip have voted against John Chongat and supported their own candidate, a local noble named Pius Gunu’un’ichin – in hopes of electing a chief less focused on the city of Ona Yagich. The supporters of Chongat are furious and one chief demands the K’onipians “support the candidate backed by Christ, not of the candidate of whale blubber merchants!” This in turn infuriates Pius, who declares that the Chongat supporters have, “defamed the name of Christ with their vain politicking!” The second vote produces the exact same result, and after more threats from the backers on John Chongat, Pius is driven to make a move that will shake the Selk’nam nation to it’s core – the negotiation of an agreement with the pagan nobles. In a secret meeting, Pius says that he is prepared to throw the votes of K’onip behind a non-Catholic candidate, but demands a signed promise to “retain the Catholic character of the Selk’nam nation”. He also claims that Laozi Ctli’ich, at age 37, is far too young to risk handing the Haruwin to a pagan chief. The next day, the entire council is surprised when all of Pius and Laozi’s votes go instead to Laozi’s 67-year old uncle, Ge Hong Ctli’i’i – who becomes the first Taoist Great Chief. Over the shouts of furious Ona Yagich nobles, Great Chief Ge Hong announces that the Haruwin will remain a Catholic nation and that the building of the cathedral and integration into greater Christendom will continue, and that Pius will be his right hand. However, all faiths will be respected and relations with the Eastern allies of Japan will be deepened. When the new Great Chief is announced, he is met with stunned silence from the Ona Yagich crowd, and in the uneasy calm that follows, many wonder how a Chief can control a nation when his religion holds only 10% of the population. While the news is greeted with elation in Taoist Miayko Yagich – Hainists in the West and traditionalists in the Teushen lands wonder how a Taoist Chief will be any different than a Catholic one. Meanwhile – unaware of developments at home – Zhangzi Hg’ich sails on from New Syria to Orissa, where he presents his letter of greeting and friendship from the now-dead Cornelius Tuch’huelpe.

The nation continues to amp up their military in a bid to give themselves something to be proud of. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan and Kamapura continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. The economy of the nations begins to once more grow with the re-introduction of Brunei into the fold of the Maharajya. In Brunei, many Christians convert back to Hinduism - stating they had been forced to convert by the Welsh - and once more pilgrim to sacred temples searching for forgiveness. The Welsh impact has been left in the new styles of buildings constructed in the short span the nation was under Welsh influence, and this is looked into by Bruneian and Orissan architects alike. The arrival of Zhangzi stirs up some interest in the region - and the Maharajya states they are happy to be friends.

  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Great Chief Ge Hong Ctli'i'i works to consolidate his rule and engages in a heavy buildup of the military, decentralizing the command from Ona Yagich and building local garrssons in each of the four major cities. He especially devotes resources to the institution of the Miyako Yagich garrison, from whom he draws his own highly trained personal guards. Most of the Haruwin accepts the new Chief, as the West and Teushen welcome a non-Catholic Chief, while the Catholic heartland of K'onip is kept in line by its favorite son, the new "Prime Minister" Pius. The Maugholdians of K'onip enjoy something of a resurgence, as they realize that they lack state support and increase their focus on missionizing the population to ensure a Catholic majority among the common people. Their missionaries are especially effective among the Hainist communities of the West, where they previously had not been active, as well as in the newly settled Teushen periphery. However, the capital itself Catholic mainland remains quietly hostile toward the new chief and his inner circle of suddenly empowered Taoists and K'onipians. John Chongat consolidates a position as "leader of the opposition" in the Great Council, and many in Ona Yagich begin protesting to intstate the "House of Chongat Yagich" as hereditary monarchs of the Haruwin. The two "parties" come to be known as the "Royalists" supporting John Chongat, and the "Outlanders" supporting Great Chief Ge Hong and Prime Minister Pius. Both sides aggressively court the support of the aging wife of the deceased Cornelius Tuch'huelpe and daughter of David Chongat Yagich, Sarah Yu'arik'nam, and her middle aged daughter Rachel Te'kina'hnam. Rachel is seen as particularly important, as her mother is old, and her own "royal blood" would be in dispute if John were made king (Cornelius himself having been a commoner, married to a princess, then democratically elected by the council). However, the House of Tuch'huelpe remains silent and concerns itself only with the operation of the Great Circus. In an attempt to woo public opinion and make good on his promise to Pius, Great Chief Ge Hong orders Vincent Hgog'navi'ch to accelerate the constuction of the cathedral. In a speech, Ge Hong proclaims the, "This church is a great monument to the Selk'nam culture, and we must all be greatful that Catholicism has helped make the Selk'nam and build our Haruwin. I, myself, am not of the Selk'nam, but of the Yaghan, who owe their progress to Chongat Yagich's first allies in Miyako. But let us never lose the place in the Christian world which David and Cornelius fought so hard for!". However, Ge Hong also moves to strengthen his own people, dispatching three of his best ships with emissaries bearing chests of gold, seeking a meeting with the Mononobe Shogun. He asks that the Mononobe send many Taoist priests and learned Taoist wise men to Miyako Yagich in order to build great centers of Taoist learning. In his letter, he explicitly declares that, "I am bound to keep my nation Christian, but please let my own city, Miyako Yagich, be second only to Kyoto as a jewel in the crown of Taoism." In addition to requesting Mononobe help, Ge Hong orders the existing Taoist hierarchy to pour all of its resources into subverting the "so-called Hain of Lao Tzu" and "bring them to Lao Tzu as he truly is." Meanwhile, Zhangzi Hg'ich spends several months in Orissa and asks that the Maharajya states send ships to open a direct trade in whale oil and gold. However, he declares in March that he must realize his dream of sailing the globe and sails away. In October, he arrives in Italian Australis, and once again presents his letter from his long-deceased Chief Cornelius. Several locals, who have heard from trading ships that he left Orissa in March, ask why it took so long for him to reach their shores. He refuses to answer directly, saying merely that he has seen many things on his long journey, too many to recount. However, he is here now and earnestly desires to open direct Selk'nam relations with Italia and its Australian colonies.

You realize that that (haha that that) doesn't happen in mod controlled events? ~ S

  • Portugal, León, Castille, Aragon, Navarra and Granada's economies improve. Meanwhile in Portugal, an earthquake happens, followed by an giant wave, in Lisboa, engulfing the harbour and the downtown area, and in Algarve, destroying littoranean fortresses, razing houses and causing heavy damages to nearly every city in the littoral of the Algarve, and the same happening on Madeira and Açores. In Lisboa, about 30,000 people die, and many buildings of the city are destroyed. After the earthquake, relief and rehabilitation efforts start, with teams of workers and ordinary citizens were ordered to remove the thousands of corpses before disease could spread. Contrary to custom and against the wishes of the Church, many corpses were loaded onto barges and buried at sea beyond the mouth of the Tagus. To prevent disorder in the ruined city, the Portuguese Army was deployed and gallows were constructed at high points around the city to deter looters. The king and the secretary of the state immediately launch efforts to rebuild the city. On 4 December 1755, little more than a month after the earthquake, Manuel da Maia, chief engineer to the realm, presents his plans for the re-building of Lisbon. Maia presents four plans, The first plan being to rebuild the old city using re-cycled materials, the cheapest option.

He condemns the action by Strellok, and, as the lawful Lord Protector of the Confederation, His Majesty revokes Strelloks military ranks, all his honours and his noble titles. The Landtag refuses to recognise Strellok's regime, and term it an "insurgency" and freezes all Confederal assets in Saxon banks. The parliament and King-Duke declare war on the "rebellious insurgents" and the full force of the Saxon army is sent to protect the Western frontier and to restore order to the Confederation. A large naval squadron of the United German Navy is dispatched to blockade the Confederation and prey upon any commerce coming their way. Intelligence agents (such as they are in the 1750s) in the confederation spread pamphlets and other publications denouncing the regime of Strellok and the other traitors. His Majesty invokes the "In the event of a war of defence (ie a member-state is invaded) then all members are obliged to assist" clause of the German Union's charter, urging Brandenburg to give support in the war. He thanks Bavaria for the help it has already tendered.

  • Yugoslavia, Greece and Siam continue to expand their economies. Padang and Malacca continue to upgrade their navies.
  • The Grat Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Great Chief Ge Hong Ctli'i'i inaugurates a massive Taoist temple and univerisity that has been built with the help of the Mononobe wise men, saying that he hopes that the people of Miyako Yagich will now be known as the world's second great Taoist culture along with the Monobe. The massive increase in the organization of the Taosists leads to the increasing consolidation of the syncretic Hain of Lao Tzu into mainline Taoism. This is aided byt the fact that the imported Japanese wise men are far less hostile to Hainist practices than the local Taoist authoirities, who had been insisting on the replacement of traditional Selk'nam ways with "proper" Japanese customs. The Japanese themselves find this appalling, and one wise man angrily demands of a local priest, "Where in the Tao Te Ching does it say anything about eating with chopsticks rather than one's hands?!" In fact, the Japanese are so impressed with the theatrical Hain depictions of Lao Tzu that they suggest that the people of Miyako Yagich adopt the practice as a way of forging and "authentic Selk'nam Taoism". Meanwhile, the Catholic majority has actually continud to grow under Ge Hong, as the Maugholdians (under prodding from Prime Minister Pius) realize that their missionary work must go forward without the overt help of the Great Chief, and become far more organized. They find great success among the people of the newly settled Teushen periphery, and also among the rural far Northwestern adhereants of the Hain of Lao Tzu, who they had previously left alone, and who are far from the Japanese influence in Miyako Yagich. Betweeen Taoist influce and the South and Christian missionary activity in the Northwest, The Hain of Lao Tzu is losing adherants rapidly and sems to be nearing extinction as a distinct religion. Hainist authorities hold a great council and agree that they should concentrate on integrating into mainline Taoism and ensuring that it retains a "Hainist character in the Selk'nam lands". After spending several years in Australis as a de facto emissary between the Selk'nam and Italia, Zhangzi Hg'ich finally returns home after hearing from traders that one of his fellow Taoists has suceedede Cornelius Tuch'huelpe as Great Chief. He is met with a great celebrations, as the people have heard in advance that he is not only still alive but has travelled the breadth of the globe. On his arrival home, he becomes a favorite in the court of Ge Hong and regails the courtiers with tales of Orissa and Australis. However, many of the Taoist scientists in court are able to piece togetehr that based on average speed of ships, he was several months late arriving in both Orissa and Australis, as well as late arriving home. When posed questions about this, he simply laughs and states that, "I am but a simple shipbuilder, perhaps I was in error with my records, or slow in my sailing." This arouses great suspiscion but Zhangzi refuses to change his line. However, secretly, he has given several scrolls to Great Chief Ge Hong concerning the full account of his voyages. These are placed in a vault in the Great Chief's palace and put under 24-hour armed guard. The existence of the scrolls is never formally acknowleged, but rumors circulate in Ona Yagich of "The Great Secret of Zhangzi Hg'ich" - likely started by the gossiping wives of the guards.

    • New rules don't allow players to post as protectorates so you can't expand them ~Von
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. A revolt is staged by some citizens in Kaliforno, who are still angry with the government. The revolt is put down swiftly, and Kaliforno is dissolved, as the government said it would be if this happened.

Development of the national ideology of plural-continentalism continues, and the expansion of the ethnic Ethiopian population in the empire continues, especially with the shrinking of the non-Ethiopian populations. The construction of factories and high-maintenance facilities begins in Ethiopia as the power of industrialization begin to kick in. Vassalization of the Ajuuraan Sultanate begins.
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The government opened the dikes to deal with the invasion and declares a state of emergency, mobilizing all available army to deal with the war.

1756

Emperor Detleff Strellok learns of the French's alliance with the German Empire rebels, and he declares war on France. The Emperor travels to Hanover to organise his personal army in Hanover in preparation for his attack on Berlin. He lets his other trusted generals lead the attacks on Munich, Paris and Amsterdam.

Could we perhaps have a map showing where the so-called "German Empire's "borders are, and where they have advanced to? Also, apologies to Russia for deleting your post last turn, I did not realise. Callumthered (talk) 02:47, July 8, 2013 (UTC)
I, too, want to see this False Germany. Andr3w777 (talk) 03:38, July 8, 2013 (UTC)
I'll post one next turn to show his empire at its greatest extent. Its fall begins in 1758 ~Von
  • Portugal, Navarra, Aragon, Castille, Granada and León prepare their militaries. Meanwhile in Portugal, rebuilding of fortresses and buildings damaged due to the earthquake of 1755 continues, and the reforms in Lisboa continue to take place.before November, the city is cleaned from debris, and in Castille, the canal's construction continues. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 1000 sq km, and Loanda expands 500 sq km, while in Brasil, the capitania of São José do Rio Negro is renamed as Maranhão, after the river that the capitania follows, and it expands 4350 sq km. Meanwhile in Rio da Prata, Paraguai expands 4150 sq km.
  • The Mononobe Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist Temples and Shinto Shrines are built throughout the nation and in the colony of Miyako.

Taoism in Kasodani continues to rise in popularity and more Taoist Temples are built. Aid and clean up continues in Japan for those who were affected by the earthquakes.
  • All the remaining Germanic states expand their militaries. Neu Berlin expands 4500 sq km along the French colony and Vinland expands 4500 sq km west towards Neu Berlin. The Royal Family flees Berlin for Neu Berlin and leaves General Heinrich Drussolf in command of the nation and the capital as Strellok advances. The Reichstag flees to exile in Russia and the Royal Navy blockades the waters between Norway/Sweden and Denmark to prevent Strellok from advancing away from Germany proper. All the vassals expand their wartime economies and Austria completely seals itself from the rest of Europe. Aquitane, currently farthest from the war, declares support from the French and moves in to occupy France to stop Strellok's advances. Meanwhile, Chimu expands 10,000 sq km north.
    • Just a question, the Brandenbergian Kaiser is also the Russian Tsar, why not flee to Russia, where he is also the ruling monarch? I am saying it makes more sense for him to flee to Novgood than to a colony....if you forgot Russia named the Kaiser their tsar before he entered into the German confederacy thing.
    • Da fuq, I'm being invaded from everywhere, but OK. Also, Scraw, the right word in the case of your entrance to France is either enter, occupy and or intervene. Sine dei gloriem (talk) 00:52, July 8, 2013 (UTC)
      • Yeah, fair enough. Aquitane helping France fight off Strellok but you shouldn't be invading France as France still stands. He hasn't reached Paris yet ~Von
      • OK, I'll save it.
    • Because Russia will be next to be attacked if Germany is defeated. However, I will change it to Novgorod. And yes, I mean occupation.
    • Then let him come to Russia! Let General Winter show this ambitious and just as unprepared ATL Napoleon what it means to mess with Russia in the winter... your entire army freezing to death - Mwahahahaha!!!! But in all seriousness, mods, please don't have this guy attack me unless it's for realistic army-freezing...please...
    • So, in any case, is it a deal for Russia getting the cat's neck as a precautionary measure so that the Usurper doesn't get control of the sea trade into Bhe baltic? then give back when usurper eventualy defeated? deal?
  • Russia welcomes the German governments. The Russian state proclaims that any German people are welcome into Russia. Russia tells all German monarchs that they will be safe from the Usurper within the territory of the Russian Realm. Russia also asks the German Reichstag to cede the passage between The North Sea and the Baltic (cat's neck and islands between and whatnot) to keep that passage from the usurper, with the eventual plan of returning that territory to Germany once the usurper is defeated, to keep him from having control of trade into the Baltic, with the exception of a land route through Norway to Finland, into the Baltic.
  • France: The king dies of old age, already having ruled France for about 75 years. His son Charles X of France hears the news of the invasion and its shocked, his ambassadors in Africa and America finally had assured the vassalization of the Muiscas, Zululand and New Judea, and he himself have assured papal vassalage, soon he sends emissaries to Normandy and Wales to aid as the Germans have done, yet in the east, Rhaetian and some Germans claim Strellok as ruler of Lothringen and Burgunden, the French king of barely 23 years old flees with his family and with the Senate of France to Carthage where Carmen I rules. France now lays divided as in the north Strellok rules with his hand, and in the south Charles Rules, The military is built up and navy expands. Nouvelle Bourgogne expands 3000 sq km, while La Riviere inalnd and Baie d'Eric (Erik's Bay) expand by 2250 sq km inland and Brasilea expands by 3000 sq km Inland. School system is devastated as the fleeing population to the colonies and to French Africa begins, the Imperial league of France prepares its own invasion through occitania and Papal provence to strike the Germans. While this, the population in Paris is evacuated and the city prepared from the attacks of the Rhenish empire, the Pope Alexander VII is evacuated from provence as fears of the likely event of Strellok attacking provence seem likely, Nouvelle Bourgogne becomes the biggest center for the population fleeing the upcoming chaos.
    • Aquitaine offers to protect southern France as a temporary vassal (until the war ends).
  • Cyprus continues to expand its economy. Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 1500 sq km, Nea Larnaka is expanded by 1500 sq km and Nea Lemesos is expanded by 1500 sq km.
  • Crete expands its economy.
  • Cyrenaica expands 10,000 sq km into the desert.
  • Reiches Großraum Bayern:Bavarian Carthage and Cyrenaica expand 5000 sq km south and 5000 West for Carthage and 5000 East for Cyrenaica. The Weltzeituhr newspaper HQ is attacked by the Usurper, leading editors flee south toward Italia. Wissenschaft Heute (Science Today) suspends print until the end of the war. The Royal Academy of Sciences continues its research to include the study of human anatomy. Despite the conflict, a great many strides have been made to understand the body. St. Marie Hospital is flooded with patients from invaded areas. This surprise invasion shows how unprepared the Bavarian medical system is. Several doctors note this and send letters to the exiled Reichstag. The military utilizes the new roads to send troops to the north to help repel the invasion. The Chancellor orders the complete lockdown of Munchen, all roads and gates are effectively shut down and heavily fortified as the Usurper's military marches closer. Chancellor Andersson orders a mandatory evacuation of the Bavarian Reichstag and all upper political leaders to a safe zone in Russia. The Chancellor takes command of the 2nd Royal Army and closes down Munchen, preparing to defend with massive artillery strikes at the Usurper's lines. Bavaria requests the Bavarian party members of the German Union flee to Russia with Saxony and Brandenburg and establish a temporary government. All roads toward the cities of Munchen and Nuremburg or closed by military order, the pass through the Alps is opened to allow fleeing citizens into Italia.
  • Bavarian Indonesia: Neu Munchen in Western Australis expands 10,000 sq km south along the coast. Governor Willems navy finally arrives in the North Sea, and divides to meet up with the Eastern German Fleet. The combined fleet wages a fairly successful campaign against the False Germany, the ships then move to secure vital ports across the northern coast of Europe and the Baltic to keep the Usurper out of trade routes.
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 1000 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 1000 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar. The 17th to 19th improved wooden sawmill is built in Northern Myanmar, with a production of 100 kg lumber daily. The 35th and 38th iron workshops are built in Southern Myanmar. A Burmese artisan built the nation's first rifle.
  • Wales continues to grow its economy and build a stronger military. King Arthur II begins to get old, and his son, Prince Evan II, begins to prepare for a grand coronation. He is notably quite indulgent, much to his father's dismay. Population continues to grow. In Cardiff, the largest city in Wales and the home of the new Cardiff University (which is considered an equal to Oxford and Cambridge), a notable sailor and scientist, Martyn Maldwyn, invents the sextant. Also, intellectuals in Avalon begin an idea of Fawr Brythoneg, which means "Great Brython". The idea catches on with Prime Minister Alun Islwyn, who writes a largely popular book, Un Pobl Celtaidd (One Celtic People).
  • England, Scotland, Belfast, and Brittany grow their militaries and economies. Population growing policies remain in place, and Welsh culture continues to make a lot of progress in its continued spread. Belfast is renamed Ireland to show that it encompasses all of the former Eire. The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km, as Tulpung yr Aber also grows 3000 sq km. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries. New South Wales grows its economy and military, as Maori Catholicism continues to spread. The Chono Haruwin continues to convert to Christianity, and expands 10,000 sq km south towards the Miyako colony.
    • Welsh Diplomacy: We offer to assist Strellok in the war against the Netherlands (either by declaring war or only by sending massive amounts of supplies, money, and troops) if he will recognize Arthur II as King of the Netherlands -OR- if he allows Wales to take over Argentium/Chile. We also advise Strellok to not attack Russia or Italia. (At least not yet.)
    • Saxon Diplomacy: We ask our friends in Wales not to give aid to Strellok, as his usurpation has shaken the foundations of our governmental system (yours and mine), and also, any aid given to assist against the Netherlands will doubtless also be used against Saxony and Bavaria, your allies and friends.
    • Mod event: Emperor Strellok demands that Wales either joins his side completely or be seen as his enemy. The Emperor will not be used by anyone, he will be one who does all of the controlling.
    • Rebellious Germans declare that the Welsh should support Strellok, whereas the government-in-exile says that war with the Netherlands is now war with Germany.
    • Bavarian Diplomacy: Bavaria asks that Wales side with the true Germanies, as we offer the most stability in Europe after we quiet down this dang Usurper. Note if you declare war on the Netherlands, you declare war on all of Germany and possibly some allies such as France or Russia.
    • Netherlands Diplomacy: Wales and Netherlands were in personal union, and have strong business relationships ... This is treason ... Knowing that even in good faith we returned the control of London, who was in our possession ... And also knowing that the fleet of Wales has no chance against the Dutch that exceeds in number and technology. All ports in the British Isles and colonies will be subject to a naval blockade.
      • It was a secret offer.
    • Wales declares war on the false emperor, backing our German allies. We accept the alliance with Bavaria, also.
  • UMSHM: Young Prince Wolfram and his mother the Queen-Duchess remove themselves to Bergen in Saxon Norway, away from the conflict. King-Duke Eugen II remains and travels to the front to assist his generals with the running of the campaign against the scoundrel Strellok. The landtag establishes conscription for men aged 18-25 who are not employed in vital tasks. In Australis, a naturalist named Johannes zu Stramm invents a system for classifying organisms (he is a TTL Carl Linnaeus).
  • I did the Linnaean sytem already. ~S
  • Confederation of the Rhine Government in Exile: A regiment is raised from loyalist Rhinish fellows. A small administrative team is sent to administer Rhinish Guinea with the assistance of the Saxon occupying force.
  • Primatial Magdeburg: The Primate (in Magdeburg) begins preparations for departing for Saint Boniface.
  • Dimurats: Military, infrastructure, and economy are improved.
    • You might want to expand your colony in OTL Tanzania, BTW.
  • Italia continues to expand its military. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the further islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Large scale use of the waterwheel continues to occur in the Italian heartlands - especially around Florence. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Italia continues to monitor the status of Bavaria and Saxony closely and will defend those two nations should they seem to be on the verge of falling.
  • Yugoslavia, Greece and Siam continue to expand their economies. Padang and Malacca continue to upgrade their navies.
  • The Arabian Federation expands its colonies with the Zanj coast colony expanding 4100 sq km inland and the newly founded New Oman colony 200 sq km inland. The Federation also builds up its military to recover from the war with Larantuka. The White Sultan wins his third term in office and Sultan Badr al Din orders his navy to sail to Kupang, with the White Sultan preparing for his latest war.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its economy as colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 2500 sq km inland and Nusantara expanding 2100 sq km deeper into Sulawesi Island. King Joshua announces a new plan to build modern universities across the Levant and offers more government funding to growing science departments. King Joshua also denounces Emperor Detleff Strellok and the Levant sends military aid to help out the rest of the German Union fight off the false German Emperor.
  • The Arabian Caliphate builds up its economy as education is improved in the Caliphate. The Al-Khalil colony expands 1000 sq km northward, too.
  • The Sultanate of Baghdad builds up its economy as the Ministry of Agriculture spreads new agricultural ideas and sells fertilizers to farmers as well. The Royal Scientific continues research on chemicals and the Ministry of Industry is established to help increase the Sultanate's productivity and economic output.
  • The Sultanate of Kuwait builds up its economy and the nation gets more modern education like neighbouring Baghdad.
  • The Maldives builds up its economy as the Foalhavahi colony allows many poor people to start a new life in the new territories.
  • The Republic of Comchellak builds up its economy as the newer Sheikdom states are economically developed.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Trade offer is still open Italy (by way of Australia). Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia, especially Brandenburg. The Juun family continues setting up schools. More universities are established in middle class provinces. Roads in the northern part of the Empire continue to be updated, especially in areas of heavy traffic. Training drills are conducted by the military. The Royal Science Academy continues work on scientific projects. Flax and tobacco are grown. Linen is produced in Mutul and Azteca. Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 5150 km and Haven expands 3100 km.
  • Apache: continues expanding 8000 km north
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The government is in a struggle and much of the population enrolls in the military to deal with the invading army. All dikes near Amsterdam are open to obstruct any possible attacks and allow time to reject the invading forces. The King with all his court takes refuge in Kongo, but following closely the events in the metropolis. Suddenly at the beginning of that year, the King of Kongo, Joao VI, died of a strange disease, and without heirs, leaves the throne vacant. In this way, and with great happiness of the local nobility and the lower classes, the King of the Netherlands, Niejmen II, is proclaimed Emperor of Kongo. The huge Dutch fleet, blocks all possible trade routes and establishes a rigorous blockade of the Baltic Sea and British Isles and every colony, not allowing any ship that is supporter of the false emperor, out to sea. Argentium colony expands 4000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 2000 km. Acech-Pasai, under the control of Netherlands, continue negotiations with Minangkabau and Pagaruyang, in this way uniting the kingdoms into one unified state.
    • The massive Germanic Navy (bigger than yours) demands that the Dutch pull out of German waters (Baltic) and return to their own defense.
    • Scraw, this is a stupid move seeing how Strellok took a lot of your navy when he seized Luxembourg and you're fighting a common enemy. Your logic is massively flawed and false ~Von.
    • How is that even possible? It's like Napoleon jacking the Royal Navy. Why? Because the Rhine had no coast. Neither do Saxony or Bavaria. Strellok would only have a small part of the Navy.
    • Germany is a strong ally of the Netherlands, as well as large trading partner. Here we are fighting a common enemy, I do not understand your reaction, I am blocking only those loyal to Strellok.
    • Oh, OK then.
    • Luxembourg is in the confederation which has a coast, and you claimed is one of most strategic European territories, as its coast grants you easier access to the Atlantic when you were moaning about losing it to France. So you'd have a lot of your navy if it were so important, no? And it's like Imperial France taking Republican (and formally royal) France's navy.
    • If you look back, you'll see that Luxembourg declared independence from the Rhine when Strellok declared himself the leader of the Rhine. Boom. Bye-bye, Rhinish Navy.
    • No. Luxembourg is firmly under Strellok's control. I must have missed that but he took over the country and killed all those who opposed him. His navy will be defeated anyway but he is in control of Luxembourg. The only nation which managed to leave the confederacy was Cleves because it doesn't border the RC so Strellok's armies couldn't invade without going through the Netherlands which didn't. So now the Dutch fight Strellok to defend Cleves.
  • Oldeburg, Liege, Acech-Pasai, Kongo, Dutch Persia, Iceland, Cleves send help. Kongo expands 10,000 sq km inland.
  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: Realising that other countries are leaving it behind in industrialisation, the Adligenrat begins to take steps to modernise the nation. Hoping to entwine a move towards scientific development with a move towards the Germanic Church they create two new laws, one on religious freedom in the pursuit of science and one on funding of scientific development. Further pushing towards the Germanic Church to ensure their place within the GGU, they declare that they are going to begin the annexation of church laws and will move towards a "True Catholic system instead of a papal system". The new tax laws begin to bring in reasonable revenues to help fund government expenditure although to pay its dues, the government still relies on the wealth of the nobles. Meanwhile, employment rises as indirect urbanisation (through the eastern refugee population fleeing to the cities) creates cheap labour that is slowly being employed by artisans and Junkers alike. The Nawan Protektorat Armee finishes its training and a new draft of 5000 men is made, hoping to show its worth to the Greater Germanic Union, 1000 men are sent west to assist in the fight against the false emperor. (again a military turn, I just like fleshing things out :) )
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. A large sense of patriotism is also born and thousands join up the army. Investigations into heat continue as industry is constructed all around the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Dissection continues to increase knowledge of events in the human body. All around the nation, more and more children are surviving into their teenage years. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. Uttarshina is expanded by 4100 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The SOC continously state that the lands in South America are rightfully ours and should be returned. The nation begins to get ready for war, and this is accompanied by the recent propaganda taking hold. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation contines to amp up their military, with the mood being that a war is coming and it might be able to finally give the people of the nation something to be proud of. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. With the situation growing worse for nations in the area, the NOC begins making a lot of money as both sides require ammunition and weapons, with the NOC selling these to great profit.
  • Rajputana expands its army heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 4100 km. Sindustan amps up on its army. The Khmers expand their economy, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 10,000 km inland and they build up their economy. Many Orissans begin to settle in Naya Bihar, which as a puppet state has more freedom than the colonies. Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure.

1757

Europe 1767

Strellok's current Empire is shown in yellow

Emperor Strellok continues marching towards Berlin, and his other generals continue on their marches towards Paris, Amsterdam, Munich, Dresden and Geneva. However, General Becker, who was leading the invasion of France, dies in the battle of Soissons and his army group which was marching towards Paris is largely destroyed in the heroic French victory. With this, Strellok’s French front largely falls apart as the French armies supported by Aquitaine forces push back most of the invading Rhinish armies. This causes Strellok to send some of his troops to re-inforce the French front and this slows his march to Berlin. Elsewhere, the siege of Amsterdam begins as the year ends.

  • Portugal, León, Castille, Navarra, Aragon and Granada prepare their militaries. Meanwhile in Portugal, José I dies, and is succeeded by his son Pedro, who is crowned as "By the Grace of God, Pedro III, Emperor of Spain, King of Portugal, Galicia, Algarve, of either side of the sea in Africa, Prince of Brasil, Duke of Viseu and Ferrol, and Lord of Guiné, of either side of the Rio da Prata, and of Commerce, Navigation of Conquest on India". Meanwhile, the rebuilding efforts continue in Portugal and in Castille, the canal's construction continues. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 1000 sq km, and Loanda expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, Maranhão expands 4300 sq km. Meanwhile in Rio da Prata, Paraguai's outermost parts, following the Paraguai River after a certain point, are given to Brasil, and made into a capitania, called Itatim. Itatim, Meanwhile, expands 4200 sq km, closer to São Vicente.
  • The Mononobe Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist Temples and Shinto Shrines are built throughout the nation and in the colony of Miyako. Meanwhile, Okinawa Kingdom builds up its military. Also, Kasodani expands by 3300 sq km, Tojiko expands by 2000 sq km, Tōkaidō expands by 1200 sq km, Miyako expands into OTL Mainland Chile by 1000 sq km, and Kazami expands by 500 sq km. Taoism in Kasodani continues to rise in popularity and more Taoist Temples are built. Aid and clean up continues in Japan for those who were affected by the earthquakes.
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Great Chief Ge Hong declares that the medernization of the military must be considered a national priority and commissions the procuction of large numbers of cannons and guns. Rumors circulate that the elderly Great Chief Ge Hong is in poor health, as he is seldom seen in public and does not speak when he does, and that he has ramped up his paranoid buildup of the military as a way of guarding against the Royalists forming in Ona Yagich. However, Ge Hong also continues his outreach to allies, sending emissaries to congratulate the Chono Haruwin on their centralization. John Chongat ramps up his agitation among the population of the capital, declaring that the Selk'nam are destined to be an empire to rule Atlantia in the same way that Emperor Strellok is destined to rule Europe. Chongat is increasingly seen in military regalia based on prints of pro-Stellok propaganda from the surrounding colonies. Chongat is particularly strident in his rhetoric against the surrounding European colonies, denouncing De Mor Tir as a "foreign blot standing in the way of the Selk'nam destiny," and calling the Chono Haruwin "puppets of the weakling Arthur, who will soon be removed by the great Strellok!" However, he saves his harshest condemnation for Japanese Miyako, which he denounces as a "den of heathen monkeys ruled by a pagan gorilla of a shogun!" and calling Selk'nam Taoists "fruit squished in the hands of the monkeys" (he is able to make these racist references due to the recent importation of actual monkeys from United Maharajya, which have become something of a fad among the Ona Yagich elite). (Apologies to the Japanese for this moron, but I figured that he was already an elitist idiot, so he would probably also be a racist, xenophobic, elitist idiot.)
    • ​King Arthur II demands that John Chongat is arrested and extradited to Wales, or we will come in and get him ourselves (hopefully with Ge Hong's permission.)
  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: Investment into industrialisation pays off as a local Konigsberg clockmaker called Peter Jaeger invents Konigsberg Steel (OTL Benjamin Huntsman and Crucible steel, seeming as no one invented this and it's 17 years late I think it's reasonable for Prussia to claim this :D especially as I'd like us to get something good on our CV and put us on the map), after years of experimenting in secret he had perfected the process and with cheap labour has begun producing it in small quantities. This invention catches the eye of a local Junker who brings it to the attention of the Adligenrat, in consequence an order to supply the Nawan Protektorat Armee with steel bayonets is made. Failing to raise proper revenue via current taxes, the Adligenrat heavily debates but passes a law annexing papal forms of income to the state, alongside this a tax on ships passing through the ports of Prussia is passed. A further 1000 men are sent west to assist in the war while 8000 men remain as a home guard should the Rhineland army break through Brandenburg's lines. The 1000 Prussian troops meet their first battle (a tiny skirmish by the war's standards) with Rhinelander troops on the wing of a Brandenburg/Saxon force, although inexperienced the fresh soldiers help win a triumphant victory and continue to assist in counter-offensive manoeuvres. (mil-turn)
  • Reiches Großraum Bayern:Bavarian Carthage and Cyrenaica expand 5000 sq km south and 5000 West for Carthage and 5000 East for Cyrenaica. The Weltzeituhr newspaper HQ is attacked by the Usurper, leading editors flee south toward Italia. Wissenschaft Heute (Science Today) suspends print until the end of the war. The Royal Academy of Sciences continues its research to include the study of human anatomy, despite the conflict, a great many strides have been made to understand the body. St. Marie Hospital is flooded with patients from invaded areas, this surprise invasion shows how unprepared the Bavarian medical system is, several doctors note this and sends letters to the exiled Reichstag. The military utilizes the new roads to send troops to the north to help repulse the invasion. The Usurper's forces face a major setback as a young Gerneral from the small colony of Neu Munchen named Kossack managed to route the main force heading for Stuttgart, the Usurper faces the largest military blunder in Germany, loyal forces surround the advance force and crush them through shear numbers. With one front gone, Bavaria hopes it can more easily protect Munchen. The Chancellor congratulates France on its great success. Bavarian forces fight fiercly against the traitor's army. John Lexron develops the coaxial rotor, a device that spins to create lift by using the tension of springs to create force(OTL device invented by a Russian, it is commonly believed this invention allowed for the helicopter of the 20th century) Lexron also discovers the use of a lightening rod, decreasing damaged caused to buildings during a storm.

  • France: the Kingdom success in the campaign at France gives a great impulse to the French people who are willing to fight, yet the royalty, the people and the middle class composed of merchants and others loyal French, the destruction of the French army lead by Becker in Soissons, but this is not proof of greater concern as l'armee de Nouvelle Bourgogne and the one from Brazilea, yet the fear of another onslaught from Strellok's army persist, in the south a scientist save its small progress on astronomy sciences, the king remains at Carthage where he is with the rest of the royalty, Larousse, and Germain, the leaders the army of the French on the continent. While this, the expansion into Africa continues as well as the Christianization of as much desert inhabitants as plausible at 10,000 sq km.

  • Anhalt: With Strellokian forces so close, the Annists (like the Jacobites in otl Scotland. For more information, see Anhalt's posts from 1586-1616) rise in open rebellion, calling on Strellok to assist them in overthrowing the "illegitimate" Prince and replacing him with the Annist pretender, Carl-Johann. Many army generals defect to the Annists, who preach orthodox Catholicism, a stronger role for the military in politics, and a policy of enlarging Anhalt with neighbouring parts of Saxony and Bavaria.
  • The Arabian Federation expands its colonies with the Zanj coast colony expanding 4100 sq km inland and the newly founded New Oman colony 200 sq km inland. The Federation also builds up its military to prepare for the Federation's latest war of colonial expansion.

  • Apache: Continues expanding 8000 km north
  • Wales: Is in a war with Strellok, a move that stirs controversy amongst many middle-class citizens who thought that Strellok would leave us alone. Fawr Brythoneg, which means "Great Brython", catches on immensely in Wales, and the idea is shared with the vassal states. Prime Minister Alun Islwyn writes another largely popular book, Fy Gadarn Alban (My Strong Albion) a sequel to Un Pobl Celtaidd (One Celtic People). King Arthur II recovers from his illness, and decides to personally lead his navy against the Strellokian forces. His son, Prince Evan II, notably condemns his father as an idiot, who should've left the nation's admirals to lead the navy. (Arthur II was away at sea when Evan did this.) Population continues to grow. Arthur's Vice Admiral is Martyn Maldwyn, who expertly uses his sextant to maneuver a massive Welsh victory of Kent. The Battle of Samphire Hoe, a forest outside of Dover, destroys to Strellokian navy in the west, and allows for a Welsh invasion of Luxembourg. 100,000 troops are landed on the border of Normandy and Luxembourg (in friendly, Norman territory) and begin to march to Luxembourg. Catching Strellok's forces off-guard, they capture the city of Dunkirk and begin to move into Luxembourg. The port is taken from Strellok, effectively limiting Strellok to only fight on land.
  • England, Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany grow their militaries and economies. Population growing policies remain in place, and Welsh culture continues to make a lot of progress in its continued spread.

    • That's the northern Australian colony right? You know I'd prefer you to be selling Caer Anial lol. But lemme think about it... ~Von
  • Italia continues to expand its military. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the further islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Large scale use of the waterwheel continues to occur in the Italian heartlands - especially around Florence. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Italia continues to monitor the status of Bavaria and Saxony closely and will defend those two nations should they seem to be on the verge of falling.
  • Yugoslavia, Greece and Siam continue to expand their economies. Padang and Malacca continue to upgrade their navies.
  • All the free Germanic states expand their militaries. With Strellok stalled on the Mecklenburg front, several major generals piece together a massive plan to drive him back to the Rhine. Fleets recalled from Neu Prussen captures the Luxembourgish coast in a nine day battle with the Welsh, with a quarter of those fleets decimated and more than half of the enemy ships sunk, with casualties in tens on thousands on our side and hundreds on thousands on the rebel side, thanks to the recent defeat in France. The Aquitanean intervention in France is a massive success, pushing the Rhinish forces north and also recapturing Lyon. However, Mecklenburg quickly falls to Strellok by early fall and all forces are redirected to prevent him from capturing Berlin in a near-last stand. Civilians evacuate in the masses to Sweden and Norway and the OTL pantograph is invented in Christiana (Oslo). Neu Berlin expands 4500 sq km around the French colony and Vinland expands 4500 sq km west towards Neu Berlin. Chimu expands north 10,000 sq km. All vassals, etc, build up economy.

    • Dang it man. I like getting my own territory back? Maybe you could free the Netherlands? As I have no real purpose to do that ATM? ~ S
    • Sorry... We can make it so that it was a joint German-Welsh operation. I just thought you would position your forces elsewhere. I mean, it would make more sense to defend Berlin than recapture Luxembourg when you have an ally who is in sight of Luxembourg from the cliffs of Dover. Reximus55 (talk) 19:16, July 9, 2013 (UTC)
    • The Navy wouldn't do much for an inland city like Berlin. But I'll change it. ~ S

Investigations into heat continue as industry is constructed all around the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Dissection continues to increase knowledge of events in the human body. All around the nation, more and more children are surviving into their teenage years. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. Uttarshina is expanded by 4100 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The SOC continously state that the lands in South America are rightfully ours and should be returned. The nation begins to get ready for war, and this is accompanied by the recent propaganda taking hold. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military, with the mood being that a war is coming and it might be able to finally give the people of the nation something to be proud of. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. With the situation growing worse for nations in the area, the NOC begins making a lot of money as both sides require ammunition and weapons, with the NOC selling these to great profit.

The construction of factories and high-maintenance facilities begins in Ethiopia as the power of industrialization begin to kick in. Third year of the Ajuuraan Sultanate begins.
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: Are organized armies and guerrilla groups to defend Amsterdam. The enemy armies are attacked tirelessly to stop their advance into Dutch territory. A feeling of patriotism spreads throughout the country. Meanwhile, the King hurries sending a huge contingent of Congolese troops to liberate European territories. And by the end of the year, defenders have moral at the top, and more than ready.The huge Dutch fleet continue blocking all possible trade routes and establishes a rigorous blockade of the Baltic Sea and British Isles and every colony, not allowing any ship that is supporter of the false emperor, out to sea. Argentium colony expands 4000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 2000 km.

1758

Europe 1758

Strellok's current Empire as of 1758 is shown in yellow

General Becker's successor, the incompetent General Dietrich oversees the rebuilding of the Rhinish invasion line of France. But due to blunders and a German-Welsh invasion of the Rhinish naval bases in western Luxembourg, General Dietrich's front collapses as the French win more territory. The slightly more competent General Luther abandons his invasion of Switzerland to help General Dietrich keep the French at bay, which allows the Swiss to push into Sundgau slightly. Things get worse on the French front for the Rhinish forces as the ethnic French peasants of Luxembourg rise up in rebellion asking for France to come and annex them into France to make their lands truly French once more.

Meanwhile, the young Gerneral Kossack's victories forces General Ooter to stop his invasion of Bavaria and he also is forced to send troops to help out General Dietrich. The Munich invasion force withdraws back to the Rhinish line. The Rhinish forces also are defeated in the siege of Amsterdam, and several other smaller Dutch victories destroy Rhinish General Paulineus' army, leaving General Dechzlofz who was leading the invasion of Cleves in charge of the entire Dutch front. As Dechzlofz tries to reorganise his forces to attempt to besiege Amsterdam, a large Cleves-Dutch army launches a surprise attack destroying Dechzlofz's Cleves invasion army.

Conversely, Emperor Strellok's own army in the east wins more victories this year and form an alliance with the Annists, allowing Strellok's vanguard to move in and start taking over Anhalt, while Strellok's main army leading the march to Berlin capture Magdeburg and aim to reach Berlin by next year.

  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: Konigsberg Steel begins to move into heavy production as the government funds the expansion of Peter Jaeger's workforce, a large factory on the outskirts of the city is planned and begins construction. Prussia offers to sell some of its Konigsberg Steel in various forms to its allies in the War of the Usurper. Tax laws close the gap that has to be filled with money from the nobles' pockets, a new tax law concerning property is introduced angering Junkers. Preachers are paid to convert the Catholic Populace to the Germanic Church in Konigsberg and the surrounding area. A new educational law is proposed in the Adligenrat, as part of the move to industrialise, establishing protectorate schools (state schools) are part of the proposed legislation, the law is accepted. The first signs of trouble concerning other nobles and Junkers wanting to have a place in government appear. In the War of the Usurper, the 2000 Prussian troops rally towards Saxon forces in Anhalt joining up to assist in offensive moves in the next year (feel free to take control of my troops when this occurs, just if something goes wrong, don't kill them all :O). (economic turn).
    • The Ministry of Commerce of Bavaria offers to pay for large sums of steel to aid in the war effort.
    • Shipping will begin immediately upon payments (a few thousand will arrive for next year although the order will be completed by 1760).
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: After the huge victory the Dutch troops and Cleves remains on the offensive to expel of the country any invading force. A part of the army march south to assist the French in the liberation of Luxembourg. Meanwhile, with the support of the Congolese re-inforcements, begin the first battles against the armies of the Emperor Stellok to release Limberg and Cologne. The huge Dutch fleet continue blocking all possible trade routes and establishes a rigorous blockade of the Baltic Sea and British Isles and every colony, not allowing any ship that is supporter of the false emperor, out to sea. Argentium colony expands 4000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 2000 km. Acech-Pasai, under the control of Netherlands, continue negotiations with Minangkabau and Pagaruyang, in this way uniting the kingdoms into one unified state.
    • Too fast, you're only just pushing them out of the Netherlands, Limberg and Cologne can be attacked in 1560 though ~Von
    • OK.
  • Oldeburg, Liege, Acech-Pasai, Kongo, Dutch Persia, Iceland, Cleves send help. Kongo expands 10,000 sq km inland.
  • Normandy: As being a part of the French Confederation, Normandy aids France in the war by sending military supplies. Benin and Mogadishu expand 10,000 sq km. The Hudson Bay Colony expands 5000 sq km. The military and economy advance.
  • Mali: Mali expands 10,000 sq km to the SE. Gabu, Mossi and Wolof expand the military and economy.
  • Wales: is in a war with Strellok which is now seen as the Welsh government's way of gaining a spot in the European share of powers. Fawr Brythoneg, which means "Great Brython", catches on even more in Wales, and the idea is brought up in the Parliament, receiving large-scale support. Prime Minister Alun Islwyn writes what he calls his final book in the Brythonic Trilogy, Nac Rhagor Gororau (No More Borders). It follows Fy Gadarn Alban (My Strong Albion) and Un Pobl Celtaidd (One Celtic People). King Arthur II continues to maneuver his navy against Strellok. His son, Prince Evan II, is named regent, and begins to plan for a luxurious wedding with the young Queen of the Mainz. Population continues to grow. The Welsh invading forces of around 100,000 continues to make progress in Luxembourg, and a military governor is established. Evan hopes that Luxembourg will fall under Welsh control following the Strellokian Wars.
  • England, Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany grow their militaries and economies. Population growing policies remain in place, and Welsh culture continues to make a lot of progress in its continued spread. Fawr Brythoneg is discussed in the Parliament. The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km, as Tulpung yr Aber also grows 3000 sq km. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries. New South Wales grows its economy and military, as Maori Catholicism continues to spread. The Chono Haruwin continues to convert to Christianity, and expands 10,000 sq km south towards the Miyako colony. In addition, they contact the Huarpe people, and convince some of them to join the Haruwin. Full integration is expected in about three years.
    • The WTC offers to sell Caer Anial to the Arabian Federation. We ask $10,000,000. This will not include Reunion or Mauritius.
  • All the Germanic states expand their militaries. Most of the army is diverted into protecting Berlin. Neu Berlin expands by 4500 sq km along the French colony and Vinland expands 4500 sq km west to border Neu Berlin. The Kaiser issues a massive bounty for anyone who can kill Strellok and some of Europe's best assassins go after him. Large amounts of Konigsberg Steel are bought and used. A Swedish astronomer, oblivious to the Bavarian finding of "Baldr" finds the same planet and names it Caelus, the Roman god and father of Saturn.
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. A large sense of patriotism is also born and thousands join the army. Investigations into heat continue as industry is constructed all around the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Dissection continues to increase knowledge of events in the human body. All around the nation, more and more children are surviving into their teenage years. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. Uttarshina is expanded by 4100 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The SOC continously states that the lands in South America are rightfully ours and should be returned. The nation begins to get ready for war, and this is accompanied by the recent propaganda taking hold. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military, with the mood being that a war is coming and it might be able to finally give the people of the nation something to be proud of. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. With the situation growing worse for nations in the area, the NOC begins making a lot of money as both sides require ammunition and weapons, with the NOC selling these to great profit.
  • Rajputana expands its army heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 4100 km. Sindustan amps up on its army. The Khmers expand their economy, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 10,000 km inland and they build up their economy. Many Orissans begin to settle in Naya Bihar, which as a puppet state has more freedom than the colonies. Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure.
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: The military and economy continue to expand, but rumors consistently circualate about Great Chief Ge Hong's health, as he is not seen in public at all for the first four months of the year and most functions are attended to by Prime Minister Pius and Ge Hong's nephew Laozi Ctl'ich. John Chongat rants about the government becoming parlayzed and Laozi being set up at the next in a "heathen" Taoist dynasty. Seeing as he thinks his time has come to strike, he leads a riot in Ona Yagich that succeeds in taking a tower in the wall of the city, he declares himself as King John and demands that all Royalists attack Ona Yagich and "expel the rotting monkey Ge Hong, his puppet Pius, and the little monkey Laozi". Most of the chiefs from the Eastern part of the island of Selk'nam Yagich respond to his call and a small force attacks the capital. However, Ge Hong's preatorian guard hold off the attack on the palace, while loyalist wariors from Miyako Yagich soon arrive and crush the rebellion. John Chongat is captured alive, tried for treason, and sentenced to hang. Great Chief Ge Hong orders that, until his execution, Chongat be forced to live not in the palace dungeon, but in the pen where Ge Hong's granddaughter keeps her five trained monkeys (no fashionable Ona Yagich girl of the 1750s would DARE be caught in public without a fashionable monkey on her shoulder). Ge Hong dies three days after the execution and Pius is elected Great Chief in his place.
    • Infuriated by the refusal on Ge Hong's part to accept the Welsh terms, Prince Evan II of Wales, the regent for his father Arthur II, announces to Pius that he expects 10,000 km of Selk'nam land from the Teushen people to be added to the Welsh boundaries. (This is our bad leader. He will be overthrown relatively soon, but he is hotheaded and may declare war.)
    • Pius makes arrangements for Chongat's remains to be exhumed, and sent to De Mor Tir with an official notice of extradition and a personal note saying, "now that we have brought him under our control, feel free to do what you wish with him." He also notes that the Teushen land is not his to give and that he must make contact wiith local chiefs. Emissaries are sent to the Mononobe Shogunate to request an alliance in the event of a Welsh attack.
    • The Germanic Empire declares full support for the Selk'nam in case of a Welsh attack and tells them to give up no land.
    • King Arthur II receives wind of his son's threat and immediately removes him from the position of regent, in favor of Prime Minister Alun Islwyn. He apologizes to Chief Ge Hong, and wishes to repair any damage done by his son. He announces that Wales, De Mor Tir, or the Chono Haruwin have no intention to harm their Selk'nam allies.

1759

Generals Dietrich, Ooter and Luther join forces as they lose control of the southern, western and southeastern fronts. The two General's forces meet in Metz to regroup and to prepare a counter-attack against the French and Bavarian armies. General Dechzlofz is pushed out of the Netherlands and withdraws to Munster.
Europe 1759

Strellok's current empire following a series of tactical retreats

Bavarian General Kossack pushes Rhinish forces out of southwestern Bavaria and also manages to capture Strasbourg, which lacking its own independent government, asks to be annexed by Bavarian forces to protect themselves from being recaptured the Rhinish armies.

The French native rebels in western Luxembourg continue revolting and praising their French liberators. They continue to ask to become part of France itself as the current war shows how little their German rulers care for them. A similar situation happens in Lorraine, as the former Lorraine government returns to regain control of Lorraine. This reformed government includes members of the largely murdered government of Bar and the remaining rulers of Bar ask Lorraine if they can join to form a single nation of Lorraine. The two sides agree and the new large Lorraine asks France for protection and offer their nation to France to become a vassal.

This is possibly the most BS mod event I have ever read. The French have done little to nothing in regards of liberating Luxembourg, whereas a vast part of Welsh and German forces combined have retaken the coast. The French natives are outnumbered by Germans 85-15.

Emperor Strellok's main army begins to be cut off in Wolfsburg as Brandenburg pushes into Strellok's lines from the north and the siege of Magdeburg seemingly lost, Strellok decides to abandon this advance before his main force is cut off and he begins to withdraw his forces back to Hannover to regroup. However some of his army is sent to support Carl-Johann's Annist forces before Strellok and the Annists are cut off from each other.

  • Portugal, León, Castille, Aragon, Navarra and Granada prepare their militaries. Meanwhile in León, Fernando Alfonso de Lara, Prince of Asturias, is married to Beatriz de Távora, daughter of Luís VI Álvares de Távora, Marchess of Távora in Portugal. Meanwhile in Castille, the canal is still being built. Meanwhile, Sofala expands 500 sq km, and Loanda also expands 500 sq km. Meanwhile in Brasil, Maranhão expands 4300 sq km and Itatim expands 4200 sq km.
  • Ethiopia expands its military, economy and infrastructure, and does the same for all of its vassals. The Ajuuraan Sultanate is vassalized by the Ethiopian Empire, and the standard ceremony of welcoming the vassal into the greater empire commences. The colonies of Dähnnät and Täsfa are expanded by 350 km, the colony of Borona is expanded by 1100 km, and the colony of Msraq Qäsärä is expanded by 2600 km. Major industrial facilities are brought on-line by the Ethiopian merchant class, which is pleased to present to the Emperor and court goods and items produced in the many factories being established throughout Ethiopia. The expansion of the Ethiopian population continues to eclipse those of the non-Ethiopian populations. The development of plural-continentalism begins to show its fruitage with more and more Ethiopians and subject vassal population stating they are Ethiopians either by blood or by citizenships, showing the vast expanses between the empire and its far-flung territories mean little as the empire grows closer together as a nation.
  • Wales is in a war with Strellok which is now seen as the Welsh government's way of gaining a spot in the European share of powers. Prince Evan II calls all European leaders (notably the ones named on the Talk Pages) to the Congress of Avalon. When a number of leaders have already shown up, he publicly weds the Queen of Mainz, Inga Schmecklinberg. The couple had been seeing each other since the beginning of the Strellokian Wars when she went into exile to Avalon. The proposal in Parliament for Fawr Brythoneg passes. Integration of all vassal states in Europe is expected in under three years. Wales is renamed to Great Brython. Alun Islwyn is knighted Sir Alun Islwyn for his heroic work in creating Brython, especially through his Brythonic Trilogy. He is considered the equivalent of Mervyn Gwilym or Rafael, but for politics. Work on a new national anthem begins, and it is expected to be called Fy Gadarn Brythoneg, a play on Islwyn's My Strong Albion book. (More to come once the Mod event is released.)
  • England, Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany grow their militaries and economies. Population growing policies remain in place, and Welsh culture continues to make a lot of progress in its continued spread. Fawr Brythoneg is passed in the Parliament. Integration is expected in three years or less. The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km, as Tulpung yr Aber also grows 3000 sq km. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries. New South Wales grows its economy and military, as Maori Catholicism continues to spread. The Chono Haruwin continues to convert to Christianity, and expands 10,000 sq km south towards the Miyako colony. In addition, they contact the Huarpe people, and convince some of them to join the Haruwin. Full integration is expected in about two years.
    • The WTC offers to sell Caer Anial to the Arabian Federation. We ask $10,000,000. This will not include Reunion or Mauritius.
      • The Arabian Federation agrees to buy Caer Anial's Madagascan territories for $10,000,000 (or whatever since US dollars are non-existant in this timeline).
    • The WTC offers a trade deal to Italy, Portugal, Saxony, Brandenburg, Prussia, and Bavaria.
    • Prussia Accepts and offers for a Welsh ambassador to visit the nation for a few years to explore further diplomatic possibilities.

The 28th to 31st improved wooden sawmills are built in Northern Myanmar, with a production of 100 kg lumber daily. The 47th and 51st iron workshops are built in Southern Myanmar. More rifles are built.
  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: The factory continues construction while Konigsberg Steel production goes up. Taxes finally start to cover government expenses although the Junkers are now considering demanding elections for the Adligenrat. The Germanic Church spreads in the city of Konigberg. The first protectorate schools open in the capital, taking in large swathes of Konigsberg children and teaching them about the sciences, mathematics and literature as well as discretely indoctrinating them into the Germanic Church. (Saxony gets to control my 2000 troops for its movements in Anhalt). After receiving intelligence about the rekindling of nationalist and anti-Prussian tendencies in Lithuania, the 8000 remaining troops of the Nawan Protektorat Armee are placed along the Prusso-Lithuanian border. Small wooden offensive forts are established on the border in preparation for a defence or a pre-emptive attack. (economic turn)
  • UMSHM: The year's conscripts are called up, and another massive-scale counterattack into Magdeburg is begun. A large diplomatic delegation is sent to Avalon to take part in the Congress there. The kindly-supplied Prussian units are put to good use in Anhalt, and the King-Duke thanks the Prussian monarch profusely. Saxon West Africa expands 1000 sq km inland along the Northern border, and Rhinish guinea continues to be occupied, in conjunction with the Loyalist Confederal administration there.
  • Confederation of the Rhine Government in Exile: Upon hearing of the suggestions to divvy up the confederation at war's end, the exiled government is saddened, but not surprised. Its two regiments continue to fight on the front, and Rhinish Guinea continues to be administered by them.
  • Anhalt: With Strellokian troops within Anhalt's borders, the civil war begins in earnest. A few major battles and many smaller skirmishes are fought between the Annists and Loyalists. The Annist pretender, Carl-Johann, sets up a capital in the North-West of the country: strongly-Annist and under Strellokian occupation.
  • Italia and Yugoslavia send troops to help the Kingdom of Saxony. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the further islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Large scale use of the waterwheel continues to occur in the Italian heartlands - especially around Florence. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia.
  • Greece and Siam continue to expand their economies. Padang and Malacca continue to upgrade their navies.
  • France: the kingdom armies continue forcing Strellok off Luxembourg and Lorraine as French and German forces are supposed too, the French peasants in Luxembourg are said to not revolt and rather ask for peacefull independence, as vassal of Germany. While this, Nouvelle Bourgogne expands 3000 sq km, while La Riviere inland and Baie d'Eric (Erik's Bay) expand by 2250 sq km inland and Brasilea expands by 3000 sq km Inland. While this, the scientist Antoine Auguste Sartre discovers a small comet, after having achieved to calculate is orbital period around the sun, the comet is called Sartre by his discoverer an Occitanian from the city of Toulouse.

The Federation also builds up its military to prepare for the Federation's latest war of colonial expansion. Federation diplomats also negotiate with the Welsh Trading Company to purchase their Caer Anial colony, as Federation diplomats see a good opportunity to profit by buying the Madagascan territory and then selling it to Comchellak at a profit. The new colony is named Southern Madagascar rather uninventively.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its economy as colonial expansion continues, with the New Syria colony expanding 2500 sq km inland and Nusantara expanding 2100 sq km deeper into Sulawesi Island.

  • In Russia, a young inventor, Mistislav Rakov, invents the twin-piston steam engine, enabling it to be used in areas that do not have clear access to water, away from waterfronts, as the old design necessitated water be added every so often to work. this requires much less water added, as much less is lost. Russian Academy of sciences publishes his work in their Journal. MEanwhile, Russia sends more of its finest men to fight the usurper, while working on the military. Mines begin using iron rails and horse- or man- drawn mine carts that run on rail to speed efficiancy. This is especaly used in the Ural Mountains, where many of Russia's minerals lay. In the meanwhile, Russia thinks of killing that state that conquered Bashkiria.

He works to rebuild the previous Catholic connection between Ona Yagich and his home island of K'onip by making numerous appearances at religious services and increasing public cooperation with the Maugholdians and the ongoing building of the Ona Yagich cathedral. He embarks on a propaganda campaign in Ona Yagich by posting advertisments glorifying himself as "Securing the Catholic Haruwin", while simultaneaously posting posters in Taoist Miyako Yagich that declaring that he is "preserving the legacy of Ge Hong." He also declares that a major Catholic University will be founded in Ona Yagich to rival Ge Hong's Taoist university in Miyako Yagich, and commissions the building of minor cathedrals in the cities of K'onip and Teushen Yijich.

1760

PMII1760

With rebellions happening all over Strellok's Empire, he orders many rebel politicians to be killed such as the government of Munster, Limberg and Metz. This however does little to stop the peasant revolts happening across the Confederation. With his main southern army cut off in Metz as the Siege of Metz begins, Strellok retreats back to Bielefeld, and in the Sparrenberg Castle he formulates a plan. He brings all of his loyalist forces who aren't cut off in Metz to Bielefeld to prepare for his last stand.

Europe 1760

The current state of the Rhine Confederation in 1760

These retreats to Metz and Bielefeld allows the allied forces to capture large parts of the Rhine Confederation and allows governments such as Luxembourg, Cologne, Berg, Palatinate and Mainz to reform and return back to power over their own realms. Indebted to the rest of the German Union, France and the Netherlands, they see that reforming the Rhine Confederation as it used to be not as a real option, especially as word of the talks of dividing the Rhine Confederation reaches their ears. Lacking their former governments to rule them, Sundgau is annexed into France and Limberg into Luxembourg.

Carl-Johann's Annist forces are cut off from Strellok as they continue their civil war in Anhalt, though now deprived of outside support, they look much weaker.

Ethnic French and Dutch peoples in the former Rhine Confederation's border regions continue rebelling and protesting to return to their ethnic homelands rather than remain part of a German nation. The French rebels in Eastern Luxembourg organise into the Republic of Picardy and they ask to join France as a vassal state.

You realize there's roughly 10% of the population in the demographics that you're talking about?

  • UMSHM: The entire country celebrates the defeat of Strellock, and many call for him to be exiled..to a small island...in the Atlantic! (GASP, shock!). The armies of the Western front become an army of occupation in the New Territories. Each old Kleinstaat is turned into a Military Governate, which will eventually be annexed into Saxony: once the beaurocrats have done their magic. Reconstruction of the areas ravaged by the war begins: roads are repaired, government buildings and barracks are rebuilt and the government gives whatever money remains in its budget to farmers in order to increase their yield. In Anhalt, the last of the Annist rebels are rounded up, and Carl-Johann is taken prisoner. The war has made many in Saxony distrustful of Anhalt, and an "Annex Anhalt" movement springs up. Many soldiers who fought in the war are offered land in Saxon West Africa or in Saxon Australis, so long as they take their family (if they don't have them, they have to start one) and that they join the local colonial regiment. Many take advantage of the offer. The King-Duke proposes two statues be built: one commemorating the victory over Strellock, and one of the Germanic God Baldr surrounded by this wife, Nanna, and son, Forseti, to commemorate the work of the scientists who discovered the two moons (Nanna and Forseti) around the planet of Baldr.
  • Guillotined Strellok last turn.
  • Confederation of the Rhine Government in Exile: With the land they claim legitimacy over divided up amongst their more powerful neighbours, the GiE votes to remove itself to Rhinish Guinea, along with the soldiers of the Loyal regiments, and their families. The GiE offers the colony to Saxony as a protectorate, with the GiE gaining control of local affairs. After Saxony agrees, the GiE votes unanimously to dissolve itself and all the aforementioned people sail to Rhinish Guinea in the last ships to ever fly the Rhinish flag.

    Rafael's plan for the palace

    Great Brython
    oversees the wrapping-up of the Congress of Avalon, with most major issues taken care of by now. King Arthur II dies of pneumonia, and his son, Evan II is crowned in Avalon as His Imperial Majesty, the Emperor Evan II of Great Brython, Lord Protector of the Blessed Brythonic and Albanic Isles, King of Wales, Defender of the Holy Welsh-Roman Catholic Faith, and Sovereign High Commander of the Order of the Leek. Scotland and Ireland are integrated into Great Brython this year, following the English and Breton integration last year. As such, population growing and cultural integration is key. The idea for Brythonic as a new language catches on, and King Evan proposes an idea to Parliament - the Brythonic Lingusitic, Heraldic, and Vexillogical Society. It would be co-headed by the Royal Herald, the Royal Vexillogist, and the Royal Linguist, all of whom would hold total responsibilty over their subjects. Population growing techniques continue. Rafael Chon'ijich, who had been silent for a while unveils his latest project - a private palace in the Ciambrian Mountains for the royal family. The economy expands.

Large scale use of the waterwheel continues to occur in the Italian heartlands - especially around Florence. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works.

Major defeats elswhere at the hands of the Revolutionaries leads the Royalist Armies to diminish even further in size as casulties begin to mount. The Revolutionaries, meanwhile, decide to end their status as "rebels" and establish the First Republic of South Korea, with a Prime-Elector taking the Executive position, and a legislature with equal power to his taking up the Legislative Branch. And thirdly a Judicial Branch is established, with five Justices being selected by the Prime-Elector and approved by the Legislature to become the highest court in the Republic. The Seige of Pyongyang, by October, has become even more desperate as the Royalists have run out of food and are being forced to eat whatever they can find in the city, including cats, dogs, and horses. However the King, eating out of his own secret stockpile, continues to eat delicacies in secret, until one day a guard comes into his chamber and discovers his ruler feasting. Starving and enraged at his Kings greediness while men are on the front lines dying to defend him, the guard strikes at the King, cutting off his right hand. The King is startled, and when he realizes what has just happened, begins screaming and shreaking. The guard goes and gathers the commanding officer, showing him what the King has been doing, and suggests that they kill the King, and offer an armistice to the South Koreans on the terms of dividing Korea into North and South. The Revolutionaries at first refuse, but when the Prime-Elector hears of the news, he orders his troops to end the seige, and fall back to the proposed armistice line. The South Koreans have withdrawn by November, and with their withdrawal the King is shown to the people of North Korea, and tried for crimes against the Korean people (most of which were made up by the General and his guard). He is found guilty, and sentenced to death by beheading. The next day at dawn, on November 19th, the King is executed, and his body is dumped without ceremony into the ocean. The Commanding officer then declares himself General Keel Jung, and he appoints the Guard Commander of the Armed Forces. General Keel Jung then calls for elections by a military junta, and he is elected as the Emperor of the new Empire of North Korea. Talks on a final peace treaty between the two sides soon begin.

However, Pius negotiates with the local chiefs on an agreement that he beli

    eves will benefit both the Haruwin and the Welsh. Pius offers to sell the Welsh and Japanese each a ten mile wide strip of land on the extreme Northern border of the new Tehuelche territory, with the two strips meeting in the middle (see illustration).

Nationalist rebels in Romania rebel against Italian rule. The extreme rebels fight for full Romanian independence and moderate rebels demand Romania become its own vassal nation with greater autonomy than it currently has. Moderate Romanian rebel leaders ask Italian leaders directly to make Romania its own vassal and promise their support to Italia to defeat the extreme Romanian nationalists.

Romania is currently part of Italia proper along with Hungary. I'll wait for adjustments to the event before posting. Scandinator (talk) 04:46, July 16, 2013 (UTC)
Okay, it's changed - though it is hard to tell that from looking at the map ~Von.

In the inland capital of Ona Yagich, all of the blacksmiths, metal workers, and artisans are commissioned to make harpoons, cannons, and all of the other needed implements for the "Great Selk'nam Fleet". Many young men are drafted to help in the project and farmers are required to contribute two weeks of labor on the fleet during the winter when their fields lie barren. Pius does not issue any reason for the construction other than that he wishes the Selk'nam navy to be "the greatest navy of the Southern Ocean, which is our birthright as the people of the Antarctic lands!" However, at the end of the year, as many of the ships are nearing completion Pius makes a Christmas address in Ona Yagich, in which he says: "Many of you have asked why we are building a great Selk'nam navy, why you must leave your fields to build great ships. I have said that the Southern Ocean is our birthright as Antarcticans, and that alone would have been enough, but many of you wonder if there is more. The women gossip, saying that where there is smoke, there must be fire, and that some grand scheme must be afoot. I stand here to say that the gossips are right! I know that there are many of you who have heard the rumor of the Great Secret of Zhgnzi Hg'ich, who is now advanced in years, brought back from his great travels around the world. I know that some say this is myth, and that we ourselves have denied its existence, but it is true! Better than that, there is not one Great Secret but three! Not all of these secrets can be revealed now, and not all will be revealed in my lifetime, but I tell you today that next year on Easter, we will reveal the First Great Secret of Zhangzi Hg'ich!"

  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: The trade fleets continue to trade to and from France and the Netherlands and the Mediterranean respectively. The Adligenrat announces that it will work to establish a Junkerrat to quell the rebellious Junkers, although some Nobles and Junkers still feel that the Adligenrat has too much power. Eastern Orthodox is now the largest religion after the annexation of the eastern Prussians, western Catholics and Germanics feel threatened by this and the leading Noble in Heilsberg starts to speak out against allowing the eastern Prussians to remain Orthodox and the conversion to the Germanic Church. Education of the populace continues. A new draft to the Nawan Protektorat Armee is made of 10,000 men, doubling the military's current size. The Welsh ambassador returns home with the secret of Konigsberg Steel, although the technology is seven years old compared to increasingly bettering Prussian techniques, Wales and Prussia are now the only two nations that know the secret of the high quality steel (other nations feel free to somehow find out after five more years although I'd like to be the leading developer of steel, gotta have something ;) )
    • Russia warns that harming Orthodox populations will result in sour relations with Russia...
    • Don't worry I have something else planned... the Herr aus Prūsa assures Russia no harm will come to the Orthodox Prussians
    • Steel is not a readily avaliable material or available for mass production until Stage 4 of industrialism.
    • Mass produced has been corrected although this material was readily available before and especially so because of crucible steel (what Konigsberg Steel is based on) [[1]] here, you'll see that it helped increase production of steel although was obviously not as great as later industrial revolution production (due to Bessemer process, etc.) although it still remained high quality compared to them until a few decades of development. Concerning production, Sheffield produced 200 tonnes a year of steel before the introduction of Huntsman's crucible steel, and soon after was producing a lot more, of course this process still requires skill and so is not heavily mass producible but it shows that Steel is not a material that is infeasibly in short supply in OTL that I am being out of the box. Therefore I'm being both plausible and realistic, and so I think you may want to change that in the industry section, that Steel becomes mass producible rather than becoming avaliable. Just my two cents :L
  • Russia: Russia expands military, colonies by 8500 sq km Kanada.

    Rafaeal and finished by his disciples Michael Angelus and Vincent Hgog’nav’ich. At the ceremony, Hgog’navich reveals a 20 foot statue of Rafael which will sit in front of the Cathedral. He is portrayed holding his plans and directing imaginary workers, pointing to the top of “Rafael’s column.” Great Chief Pius declares Rafael a national hero and says that he is always welcome in the Haruwin, and the aging Michael Angelus makes his first public appearance in years – later described by H’gog’navich as “his only prolonged period of lucidity in the last twenty years of his life”. On Easter Sunday, Great Chief Pius summons the people of the Haruwin to a massive gathering in the main square of Ona Yagich, where he says he will reveal the First Great Secret of Zhangzi H’gich. He is joined on stage by Zhangzi himself, and surprisingly by Rafael. Pius announces that, “Zhangzi Hg’ich, on his voyage discovered many things and many places, only a few of which we have allowed to be known. The first great secret is an islands many miles into the Southern Ocean, far distant from any land, and inhabited by no man. Zhangzi Hg’ich found this island after hearing tell of it from traders in Africa, and returned to it after his time in Orissa. To the Europeans, he said, it is too far and to cold. To us, however, it is beautiful and fruitful land surrounded by waters teeming which whales, perfectly suited for our hardy guanaco, and warmer than my own home island of K’onip! We will take this land as our Selk’nam destiny, and extend our Haruwin across the great waters! We wondered what to call this new land, but the return of our national hero was a divine inspiration. This new land shall be settled in his name, and called Yagich Rafael!
    • Colonists are recruited from around the Haruwin, especially from K’onip where

A fleet of five passenger ships, five naval frigates and ten fully-crewed whaling ships is sent to settle the new land, with plans to send more ships over the next year. The ships leave at the start of the Southern spring in September. After sailing through the spring, they make landfall on Yagich Rafael (OTL Kerguelen Island) on November 4th. They immediately set up a whaling camp (site of OTL Port-aux-Français) which, which in the hurry is not given a name different from “Yagich Rafael”. Geographers eventually come to call it “Yagich Rafael Yagich” to differentiate the city from the island. A number of the farming families from K’onip settle farther inland, where they find tundra grasses well suited to their the wooly guanacos brought with them. These settlers make one o

The plant is called “Rafael Bread” by settlers, who are so excited that they insist that the next supply ship carry seeds back to their native K’onip, where it will be one of the few vegetables that can grow.
  • Great Brython's Brythonic Lingusitic, Heraldic, and Vexillogical Society is busily at work attempting to create a new language, based on Welsh, English, Breton, and Celtic. A large amount of the language is completed, and some commentators say Brythonic is "a toned-down Welsh to make the English feel more inclined to learn it." The military grows. When Barcud Coch Castell is completed, Evan III, extremely proud of his new home, invites all of Brython to come view his castle. Since many Welsh respect Rafael immensely, they all make there way to the castle. They are enraged to find, that when they arrive, only the wealthy and nobility are able to enter and join the party; the rest must wait in the snow. News from De Mor Tir comes in, saying the Selk'nam have decided to colonize Anghyfannedd Islands - the Desolation Islands. We caution that the island cannot serve as much more than a trade post, but our people in Caer Anial (reduced to Reunion and Mauritius), will happily trade with Yagich Rafael. Meanwhile, from Prussia, or Ambassador returns with secrets of steel, for which we thank the Prussians. We offer a military alliance.
    • Selk'nam Diplomacy: We thank the Brythons for their advice, but we have been living in these condidtions for years and our agriculture is suited to the climate. We already farm guanacos on the much less hospitable island of K'onip, from which we drew most of the herders in the colonial party.To them,Yagich Rafael is a tropical paradise.

However, like many of its predecessors it starts criticizing the great failures of nations - such as the Germans and the previously used Scandinavians - as examples. Nations that, although big, have proven to be defeated by nations of smaller size - or by enemies - and although they have successfully defeated many, this doesn't mean that they are undefeatable at all. For the first time in several years criticizes the German empires, and criticizes the weakness of others including France, for its Inability to put the German empire down as a threat. The government, however, keeps its opinion hidden, and says that it is the freedom of any French to say their thoughts, but that no French outside the senate, knows anything of the political life France has endured in the last century. He uses as an example the German invasion of Burgundy that took the regions of actual Picardy from Burgundy, after the war with the Netherlands, French law system renewed mainly by the pushing philosophical movements to add the freedom of speech as a basic law to the people, of every French nation or member of the Imperial League, the trading with other empires continue as many traders from Carthage and New Judea criss cross the countries and, further more, crossing the Neptunic Ocean (Pacific).

The Caliphate also begins large scale improvements to agriculture using Baghdad methods to improve output such as fertilizers and rest years. Small air furnace factories are built in large cities, too. However, the Caliphate's small tax budget remains a problem and the Sheiks continue to consider joining the larger and much richer Arabian Federation to help prop up their own Sheikdoms. Also, Caliph Abdullah of Jazan dies this year, and the Imams begin voting on a new Caliph to be elected and organising the late Caliph Abdullah's funeral.

  • Great Brython's Brythonic Linguisitic, Heraldic and Vexillogical Society has almost been completed, with most common words already decided upon. Now begins the difficult process of instructing all school children in the language. To achieve this, new schools are created and old ones are re-invigorated. The secrets of Konigsberg Steel are made known to wealthy aristocrats who then begin to create their own small plants for the material. Eventually, a small count outside of Cardiff has perfected a recipe, which he calls "Cardiff steel." All other steel plants are bought out or shut down. The economy grows. After the incident at Barcud Coch Castell last year, there has been major talk of overthrowing King Evan III. Evan caught wind of this story, and executed 50 believed conspirators. This led to a group of peasants from Birmingham, the city where the consipators were from, to take arms and march to Avalon. When they realized how they would fail they laid down there arms, but were still massacred, with over 500 dead. At this point, the English, Scottish, Breton, and Irish governments renounced King Evan III as king and declared Prince Madoc IV as the rightful Emperor of Brython. Madoc, who was a leading member of the underground movement, took up arms with a number of Welsh troops, who he has been leading. (Madoc was a general in the Army.) Finally, all rebel forces have been mobilized and are preparing to strike the King at Avalon.
    • Just for clarification, Cardiff Steel would be basically identical to Konigsberg Steel, except it would make better use of Brython's national resources for production, whereas Konigsberg Steel is just for Prussia. Ultimately little change can occur.

Rafael Bread becomes so popular that it is even planted on the mainland and in the Teushen areas (where it’s hardiness is not required but where it nonetheless grows well). Kelp farming experiments also begin around the Selk’nam mainland based on the success in Yagich Rafael. Shiploads of dried kelp are sent to Caer Anial and to the Mononobe – as both the Welsh and Japanese cultures are known consumers of sea vegetables and the Selk’nam hope to open trade in what they consider the highest quality dried kelp in the world. Some people even go so far as to say that kelp may eventually replace whales as the chief product of Yagich Rafael, but the bountiful catches lead many to dismiss this as wishful thinking.

With Evan III's hiring of mercenaries, the whole Brythonic army has defected, citing that Evan has no faith in his own troops. A large battle takes place outside of Cardiff, called the Battle of Llyni Wood. Following the defeat of Evan's mercenary forces, Madoc had secured the city, receiving huge support and his troops are doubled by local artisans, merchants, and other city-folk.

The Elderly Dimurati King and Sheik Boulos of Vanak both give their blessing to the marriage and the dynastic union agreement with the Sheikdom of Vanak being annexed into the Dimurati Kingdom once Sheik Boulos dies and his daughter Hawwa and his son-in-law Prince Da’ud inherit the Sheikdom. Another massive political event happens in the Federation happens this year: following the death of the heir-less Sheik Azeem of Sharjah this year, arguments break out over who should inherit the Sheikdom of Sharjah, with many nobles, Sheiks and Emirs arguing for control of the State.

  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Yagich Rafael expands by 800 sq km. Two flocks of 75 dodo birds are released respectively on the Selk'nam mainland and Yagich Rafael. About 60% of the birds die through the cold winter, but the remaining ones survive to breed a hardier strain of dodos suited to the climate. Great Chief Pius declares that no one may hunt dodos for ten years in hopes that the population will become more established. Kelp farming continues to expand and kelp becomes and integral part of the Selk'nam diet. In Miyako Yagich, the Taoists attempt to use their new crop to emulate Japanese sushi that some scholars have seen on trips to Japan. However, the resulting dish (lacking rice) usually consists of shredded Rafeal Bread cabbage and cooked fish wrapped in whole kelp leaves. While the Japanese vistors insist that they have never seen such a thing before, the dish is somehow labeled by street vendors as "Sashi Mononobe" and the name sticks (this dish is still widely available on the streets of that city.)
    • Diplomatic Message to Wales: Great Chief Pius, in consultation with the local chiefs and the House of Tuch'huelpe, notes that Praxedes Hgichin'Tuchuelpe'nam, the eldest great-granddaughter of Cornelius Tuch'huelpe and the great-great-granddaughter of David Chongat Yagich, is come of marriageable age. She is also a trained acrobat. She is offered as a bride to Madoc IV as wife fitting to freedom loving and benevolent Welsh monarch.
    • Emperor Madoc IV of Great Brython, King of Wales and Scotland asks to marry Praxedes Hgichin'Tuchuelpe'nam, noting that his grand-father's favorite event was the Selk'nam circus he attended which Cornelius led.
    • An European noble marrying a native american? Xenophobia, politics, racism and such would make this event just non-existent. It's political suicide and completely undermines the colonial dominance which imperialist nations need to legitify themselves.
    • I have to protest here. If you disallow this marriage you are throwing out the last century worth of history in this timeline. Consider the following: We exist in a world where India is an industrial power. The Mayan Empire still exists. The Japanese AND Chinese, along with the Indians, are colonial powers. The Atlantic slave trade does not exist. The Spanish colonial empire (which developed a lot of ideas about Native Americans) never existed because the Portuguese conquered Spain. The Selk'nam's aggressive Westernization has seen them widely embraced by Europe as a Christian nation on par with the rest of Christendom (that being the key to this marriage), and have even been allowed to build monestaries on European soil. On top of that, Magedeburg has already had a ruler who was half Australian Aboriginal, and the Welsh king lives in a palace built by a Selk'nam architect who was considered the greatest European artisan of his generation. Thanks to our "butterfly effect", this timeline is SIGNIFICANTLY less racist than OTL (which is not unrealistic based on events). Numerous events have frankly prohibited racism from developing to half the extent it has in the real world, and we CANNOT hold this timeline to OTL cultural moorings that were never allowed to develop in this world. Hence, TO DISALLOW THIS MARRIAGE WOULD BE ASB and in total conflict with history. Commandante Lemming (talk) 03:30, July 22, 2013 (UTC)
    • Christendom is only like four countries...Christian or not, you're not in Europe. Wouldn't happen.
    • Already happened in Magedeburg. Are we going to go back and over-rule that? If they can do it, I can do it. Commandante Lemming (talk) 20:41, July 22, 2013 (UTC)
    • What already happened in Magdeburg?
    • They had a ruler (in their case a religious primate) who was half Aboriginal Australian (He was Bishop of of the Aru Islands). If we're going to call racism as the rule, then that never would have happened. Commandante Lemming (talk) 21:26, July 22, 2013 (UTC)

  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: A grand meeting of the Adligenrat and Junkerrat is called to "decide on the actions concerning religious tension in the nation". The Catholic Noble formally creates a gathering, while under investigation he states it is nothing more than a "small congression in appreciation of our lord" however the gathering is more akin to a military camp, something that is not overlooked. Further hoping to re-inforce the pro-Protectorate forces in Normandy, many Prussian-made rifles are sent to arm the rebels. Along with this explosives (gunpowder based) are sent. The construction of a new factory begins with the new Bavarian Steam technology, while the Konigsberg and Memelburg factories are slowly upgraded. (eco turn)
  • Protectorate Agents in Normandy: Propaganda is spread, relying on Norman nationalism and religious leanings, to put across the idea that an independent Norman Protectorate would be able to shun foreign influences from using Normandy as a pawn, instead that a new government would be formed that would bring Normandy into a new age of prosperity where Norman ideals are upheld and espoused long into the future and that Normandy would be a great nation amongst equals rather than fall under the palm of another foreign monarchy.
  • Laītawiskas Protektorat: Sure enough, resistance to the Gemeine Magistrats falls, and the 'missing' Lithuanians land is given to the newly arrived Prussians. Hoping to increase the country's wealth, money is invested in the building of a factory in the Protectorate's capital of Butendiekshof using granted steam techonology from Konigsberg.
  • The Mononobe Shogunate builds up the military. More Taoist Temples and Shinto Shrines are built throughout the nation and in the colony of Miyako.

  • The Arabian Federation expands its colonies with the Zanj coast colony expanding 3100 sq km inland along Lake Kitara's southern coast as new towns are founded on the Lake's southern shores. New Oman colony expands 1000 sq km inland, too. The Federation builds up its economy as the Federation industrializes. The Federation continue vassalizing the Qoyunlu Empire for the fifth year too, which leads to Qoyunlu becoming a vassal of the Federation. Sultan Ghassan’s state hospital programme begins to be rolled out too as the Federation enjoys the benefits of Stage 2 industrialization.
  • The Dimurat Kingdom builds up its military as King Da’ud prepares to invade Persia starting a new meeting with the Qoyunlu, Germans, Dutch and Arabs on how to divide Persia.

    • Anhaltese Diplomatic mission to Normandy: Prince Luitpold III (nominated by the Saxon King) says that if he were selected, he would abdicate his Anhaltese throne to his brother, so he could focus entirely on bettering Normandy. Having a new Royal House from a far-removed country, instead of a close one with vested interests, would mean that the king would stand above the interests of the regional powers (France, Brandenburg, Brython) and work purely for Normandy. Sharing a House would also help to bring Normandy, Saxony and Anhalt closer together. The Prince is also completely willing to change to the Norman religion if necessary.
  • Wales expands its economy. More to come later.
  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Yagich Rafael expands by 800 sq km, military is built up. More later after Royal Marriage details are resolved.
  • Great Brython works to continue its education and the universities at Cambridge, Oxford, and Cardiff are all doing extremely well, and continue to attract international students from noble families. Steel has made a huge difference in daily Brythonic life, that the air furnace has rapidly been made usable. Expanding on that technology, the steam engine if fully developed and starts to become more common among wealthy people. New farming tactics are released, and fertilizing substances become commonplace. This allows for healthier families, and death rates, as well as infant mortality rates, plummet. This begins to cause population to go higher, and, as result, people move into bigger and bigger cities. Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Rennes all become huge by relative comparasions. More radical ideas are fromed in healthcare and anatomical studies are formed. King Madoc IV, although no longer afraid of running behind continues ot grant subsidies to the universities for new discoveries. The economy is bursting, and it grows.
    • After debating with his various ministers over the ethics of marrying a native woman, Madoc IV asks Praxedes to provide her family records. As the heads of the Brythonic Heraldic Society quickly note Praxedes, is in fact descended from King Arthur I of Wales. a direct link of lineage between the Pugh and Clywd family is noted somewhere around the 1590s, and they were sent to the colony to serve as Viceroyalty until the expansion into mainland Atlantia where a higher noble family was given the post.
    • Upon hearing the news, Madoc decides that his love for Praxedes, and his desire to better Christendom in general, will come before fears of assasaination. Praxedes and Madoc are wed on August 12, 1771, marking the start of a Dynastic Union between Great Brython and the Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam.
    • Quick note - this is great but it's not a Dynastic Union. First off I don't have a dynasty as the Haruwin has an elected chief (I have a nobility but not per se a monarchy). Second, Praxedes is not in line for the throne. Our "royal" families are linked by marriage but not in Dynastic Union, I retain control of the Selk'nam Commandante Lemming (talk) 15:53, July 23, 2013 (UTC)
    • Selk'nam Response: There is great rejoicing throughout the Harwin at the news of Queen Praxedes officially joining the Brythonic royal family. Great Chief Pius, on hearing news that the wedding has acutally taken place, declares four days of revelry in Ona Yagich. In a speech he declares that, "No one now can say that the Selk'nam are anything but equals with our Christian brothers in Europe, let our royal blood be joined to theirs and theirs to ours in glorious Christian Unity!"
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km, as Tulpung yr Aber also grows 3000 sq km. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries. They continue the process of vassalization, now that they are Christian-majority, Welsh speaking states. Hobyo and Somalia continue talk of unification, planned for next year. New South Wales grows its economy and military, also.
  • Italia continues to expand its military. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the further islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia continue to use a steam-powered form of the waterwheel and develop small cottage businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia.
  • Romania, Padang and Malacca continue to expand their economies. Greece and Siam continue to upgrade their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies.
  • Normandy: On the morning of January 2, 1771, agents of the NIO apprehended Prussian agents inciting support for a Norman Protectorate. They were peacefully deported to friendly Cleves were they would be in turn sent back to Prussia. On January 21 the Royal Council conducts a vote on which European prince or king should be the next monarch of Normandy. The contenders of the Norman throne, and those who appeared on the ballots, are as follows: The Prince of Anhalt, the King of Germany, the King of France, the King of the Netherlands, the Duke of Lithuania, and the King of Great Brython. Out of 300 members of the Royal Council, 79 voted for the King of Germany, 71 for the King of France, 55 for the King of the Netherlands, 50 for the Prince of Anhalt, 42 for the Duke of Lithuania, and three for the King of Great Brython. After Frances Aquelac declared the contents of the votes to the public, outrage consumed the nation in a matter of days. People still remember the distrastous Norman defeat during the Great War 70 years ago, and still remain very distrustful of the Germans. However, on March 1, 1771, Frances Aquelac delivered a speech in Rouen.
"The nation seems to mourn these few days after I announced the vote which favored the King of Germany as the next Norman monarch. The people are cautious and fearful, as our nation was severely defeated in the Great War of Seventy years passed. However, the world as changed, Normans, and we live in a radically different world. Normandy is still a small, weak country nestled in the west of Europe, and it is true that we are eclipsed by three great powers, but we must progress and learn to trust others and lose our scorn and sting. We must also be wary and intelligent, however, and we must learn to see threats and dangers threatening our nation from close and afar, and that requires the people of Normandy themselves to stand vigilant and watch like a hawk. We have lagged on this duty in recent years, and now the Hrvatineux usurpers wish to consume the nation with instability and revolt. So, to solve this problem and restore Normandy to peace and prosperity, we must let an outer European noble become King. We must let the good King of Germany oversee our nation until his death, from which a new, effective and valiant family will be created to rule Normandy. Until then, my people, we must accept the vote and King, to finally put out the revolts that has plagued our nation and live to see a new Golden Age!"
After the speech, which calmed many people, the Royal Council and Aquelac, drew up an Act which would name the King of Germany as the King of Normandy. The Act is titled the Act of Norman Succession. These are the main components.
1. The King of Germany will rule the independent Kingdom of Normandy, in legal effect January 1, 1772.
2. After the King's death, one of his issue will rule Germany, while the other issue, male or female, will rule Normandy. The King of Germany shall not inherit nor shall they vassalize the throne and nation of Normandy.
3. The new King/Queen will be royally married to a Norman noble house, in order to create a new German/Norman house separate from the ruling house of Germany.
4. The surviving Royal Family of Normandy, the Queen's eldest sister Marie-Anne, the Queen's youngest sister Alicia, the Queen's brother Williaume-Auguste, and the Queen's step-sister Adela de Guye, would be royally married off to the monarchies of France, the Netherlands, Anhalt, and Lithuania.
On March 15, Frances Aquelac sends formal envoys to the King of Germany and the King of France and the French Confederation to sign the Act.

  • It's quite ASB to claim that all the Prussian agents were all simply found and deported, you may be able to find a few however all of them in one go? no. Also, you haven't dealt with Norman supporters of a protectorate, nor those who support a French monarch, Annist monarch, etc. The vote in the government shows that there were clear divisions and I'm sure that the population are heavily divided too, I hope that you find ways to placate or deal with each faction rather than simply brush them off.
  • Yeah, I'll find ways to deal with it. Also, there was never a specifically stated amount of Prussian agents sent, so there could have been only five or as many as 50. I'll address the supporters of the other factions as well as any other Prussian sleepers agents in coming years. Thanks for bringing it up. Also, I know what ASB means, like unrealistic/rare that such an event would happen, but what does the acronym ASB actually stand for?
  • Okay, I was just worried. And there was probably somewhere around 50 to 100 sent, obviously only about five to ten of them are the leadership but they're all pretty important to deal with, not to forget that they are arming people with rifles and explosives, maybe have a small rebellion that is put down, crushing contemporary hopes for a protectorate and forcing supporters into hiding? it would add an interesting cultural difference to the area the revolt happens in and deal with the protectorate supporters and probably a large amount of the agents but you do what feels right. And ASB means ALIEN SPACE BATS! Lovely phrase!
  • I'll add some stuff in the upcoming years to spice things up, but of course it would be nothing Madam Aquelac and the Norman Guard can't handle.
  • No doubt, support for a protectorate is likely to be thin in most places. It's like a republic although more akin to fascism in the way its run rather than being liberal, and is very pragmatic. Support for such idea'll grow in the future and will peak in countries with corrupt monarchies and strong nobilities, the protectorate ideal could even be the predecessor to Fascism in this timeline like Collectivism was communism equivalent in the other PM.
  • Why did King Madoc IV receive such bad results? His forefathers let you out of a Great War, where the German Kaiser wanted you to be annexed completely. He is directly traceable back to William I of Normandy, which gives him a much better claim than most candidates. We already hold Brittany, a state long allied with Normandy, and our Brythonic language is not too dissimilar from Norman French. England has a decent sized Norman population, also. Why did Wales do so poorly? You also refer to three world powers (France, Germany, and, assumably Great Brython). The other two placed 1st and 2nd, why did Wales come in last? Reximus Maximus  21:35, July 23, 2013 (UTC)
  • Maybe there is corruption at work! Wales must deliver Normandy from its crooked leaders! The people (and protectorate agents) would stand with it surely! For a new and strong Normandy!
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. Investigations into heat continue as industry is constructed all around the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Dissection continues to increase knowledge of events in the human body. All around the nation, more and more children are surviving into their teenage years. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. Uttarshina is expanded by 4100 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The SOC continously states that the lands in South America are rightfully ours and should be returned. The nation begins to get ready for war, and this is accompanied by the recent propaganda taking hold. With no response from the Dutch, the Raja is starting to get highly annoyed. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military, with the mood being that a war is coming and it might be able to finally give the people of the nation something to be proud of. This mood has been around in the nation long enough that a generation of those know it. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. The famine is finally alleviated in the Bengal region through good rains and food handouts to the people. Bengal has lost around a million in the last three years due to the famine, and this creates job opportunities.
  • Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 4100 km. Sindustan amps up on its army and economy. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 10,000 km inland and they build up their army. Many Orissans begin to settle in Naya Bihar, which as a puppet state has more freedom than the colonies.

Chimu expands 10,000 sq km north. All vassals, etc, expand their economies. A stronger sense of a different German identity spreads through all of the encompassed territories. Greater nationalism continues to take hold. Urbanization also continues. Pluricontinentalism catches on in Germanic territories and becomes a very popular idea. Steam mills continue to be built in the greater Berlin area, as well as in Copenhagen and Kroclaw. The Kaiser takes on the Norman throne, no matter how briefly.
  • Ethiopia continues to expand the military, economy and infrastructure, as well as those of the vassals. The industrial base of the empire continues to expand with official government backing. The expansion of the ethnic Ethiopian population continues, displacing the native populations.

Water Wheels make it to the colony, Hurem Freas forms the Hurem Gruppe, A large mining company that will mine Bavarian Silver and Coal, Hurem begins looking for diamonds after a rumour surfaced from a small native tribe. The Gruppe begins shipping to Europe this year.
    • Unfortunately, from what I've read, Dampier Peninsula (OTL Bavarian Australis) has no coal, gold nor diamonds. There is coal seam gas, but it's way too early to extract that. For now, there's always pearling off OTL Broome.
    • According to Broome's OTL location, it is in my colony. So I suppose I will switch it to pearling until I can find a more suitable area to mine. (Any ideas where in Western Australis might have sufficient quantities?)
  • Myanmar: Myanmar Afrika expands by 1000 sq km. Myanmar Oceania expands by 1000 sq km. Urbanization continues using the lumber in Northern Myanmar.

More rifles are built. More schools are built. Allows Bengal refugees to move into Myanmar.
  • UMSHM: The King-Duke is mildly disappointed that his plan for Wettin proliferation failed, but is not too put out. Prince Luitpold III of Anhalt is glad enough to have received 50 votes, and to have Willaume-Auguste marry his daughter. It is only Luitpold's brother, Leopold, who is upset. If Luitpold had become King of Normandy, Leopold would have become Prince of Anhalt, but now it appears he will only make it into the history books as a could-have-been. The King-Duke; mellow in his old age (he's 72) feels sorry for poor Leopold, and gives him his new title of Count of Cologne. The County of Cologne is established as a Saxon vassal, and Leopold gets down to work proving to King-Duke Eugen II that he is worthy of the countship. In normal news: the Saxon and Anhaltese militaries are built up. The new fertilisers, now in widespread use, greatly improve yields. More coalmines begin using the steam-powered water pump, and scientists at kassel University begin researching how to combine the power of the water wheel and the water pump. Saxon Australis expands 1000 sq km into the peninsula. Saxon West Africa expands 1000 sq km into the Gabon triangle. The Guinea Schutzgebiet improves its nascent army, and also its port facilities.

Papal Dispute

  • Great Brython is outraged by the refusal of the Holy Father to accept and bless the Royal Marriage and Holy Matrimony of King Madoc IV and Princess Praxedes. The Archbishop of Avalon consults with Madoc and proposes a radical idea - leaving the Catholic Church. After a few days, Madoc agrees to pursue this idea, seeing the violence aimed at the Papacy engulf his nation. His Archbishop, Emyr Owens, announces publicly that:
"all clergymen of Wales, all clergymen of England, all clergymen of Scotland, of Ireland, of Brittany, and all laymen and women of all of Great Brython must renounce the Papacy as a decrepit institution that has worshipped false idols in many of the Saints, has deceived us of the Truth of the Word, has restricted education to the Latin-speaking, and has limited our knowledge of the Book of God. I hearby ask all Brythonic peoples to continue their support of their local parish, and join The Holy Catholic and One True Apostolic Church of Christ!"
This new movement immediately explodes in popularity, especially because of the popular acceptance of the religion by all of the clergy, who had previously worked for the Archbishop in Avalon. Steel continues to make a huge difference in daily Brythonic life, and the air furnace is regularly usable by average people. Steam is used more and more, and the engine has now been used by farmers, along with cror rotation and fertilizers. Population grows and cities like Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Rennes all become urbanized. More radical ideas are fromed in healthcare and anatomical studies are formed. Fearing potential military involvement after the Papal Dispute, the military grows.
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km, as Tulpung yr Aber also grows 3000 sq km. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco grow their economies and militaries.

    • Prussia sends an ornate sculpture of a steel christian cross decorated in traditional Prussian style on one side and traditional Welsh on the other, declaring its support for the move by Madoc IV.
  • Selk'nam: Riots erupt in Ona Yagich at word that the Pope has refused to bless the wedding of Praxedes and Madoc. An effigy of the Pope is burned, and an angry mob attempts to sack the Ona Yagich Cathedral before being turned back by the military. Great Chief Pius attempts to calm the Haruwin but privately is furious himself. As a devout Catholic, he has an extreme attachment to the Church, but find the papal act of racism in conflict with both his faith and his own personal morality. The Bishop of Ona Yagich is summoned to the palace to explain the decision, which he cannot other than to say "the Holy Father is all-knowing, and if he says we are less, we are less." This enfuriate's Pius' nephew Damasus (Praxedes' father) who has to be physically restrained from attacking the prelate. However, the head of the Maugholdian Order, Brother Eutychianus, says instead that he Pope is merely a man, and that "if our choice is between the words of the Holy Father and the words of our Heavenly Father, then let us follow the Heavenly". After two weeks of deliberation, Pius issues a decree that the Selk'nam Church will separate from the Pope and unite with the Brythonic Church. The Catholic Bishop of Ona Yagich is imprisoned, and Brother Eutychianus is installed as "Primate of the Selk'nam". Eutychianus is dispatched to Avalon with the intent of negotiating a new Church hierarchy led by a figure who will serve the same role as the Pope. It is asked that this new head of the church be neutral, and elected by his peers, he also asks that an election be held for this post inculding Selk'nam delegates.
  • Apostolic Church: Archbishop Emyr Owens begins to organize the Apostolic Church, and decides there will be a decent amount of changes from the Roman-Catholic Church. He announces that he is undergoing the process of re-canonization with his top-level associates, and that the Bible has already been re-canonized as the Holy Christian Bible. (All books of the OT and NT remain, no new books added.) The extensive process of re-canonizing saints begins, and all 12 Disciples are quickly approved. Soon after, St. David, St. George, St. Andrew, and St. Patrick are all approved. Other historical saints, like St. Francis de Assissi and St. Augustine of Africa, as well as St. Paul are also approved.
    • Invitations to recognize, and join the Holy Catholic and One True Apostolic Church of Christ are sent to the Selk'nam, the Saxons, the Prussians, the Spanish, the French, and all other Christian nations, Catholic and Reformed, Orthodox and Traditional.
    • Brother Eutychianus accepts on behalf of the Selk'nam.
  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: Herr Markus exclaims to the 5000 Germanic Protectorate soldiers "The Papacy shows its backwardness again, thinking it is above all men, only God is above men and all men are from Adam, what gives this so called 'mouth of God' the right to claim he is more than any of us! We walk the path of God, the path dictated from the Bible, the Papacy think they can bend God's word to suit them whenever they wish! I say no, and I declare that no man who worships the Papacy rather than God can ever find enlightenment, today we shall begin to seize the ones who shall lead us from the path of God!" he sends the 5000 loyal soldiers to the south to disperse the growing Catholic force there and to arrest the Catholic Noble, the plan goes awry as a skirmish quickly ensues which while leaving the Protectorate troops victorious allows the Catholic Noble to escape and radicalises several strongly Catholic settlements in the south. Fearing that the worst will happen the Adligenrat throws its full support behind Markus and declares a new draft of 5000 solely Germanic soldiers. The returned Prussian Agents reveal detailed information about Normandy and public opinion to the Adligenrat, hoping to rekindle friendship with Normandy, the Adligenrat proposes the establishment of embassies in both nations. Meanwhile, the remaining Prussian agents disappear off the radar having created a movement with its own momentum (secretly they are just settling into Norman society maintaining the Protectorates beliefs locally in a way that won't get them caught and won't cause any major change). As production increases hugely due to Bavarian steam technology, a new way is devised to make iron and steel. Heinrich Corper (OTL Henry Cort) invents the Puddling Furnace and it is installed in the factories being used to create Iron and Steel although not in as higher quality as the Konigsberg Steel process, while some disregard it as a step backwards, Heinrich Corper declares that his invention will revolutionise the Prussian metal industry (to be done in 1785). (eco turn)
  • Laītawiskas Protektorat: Life in the protectorate slowly begins returning to normalcy and the new much more Pro-Prussian population are content or only a little uncomfortable with protectorate schools teaching Prussian, to appease the moderate Lithuanians and fight chances of repercussions he declares that the schools will teach about the Lithuanian culture and espouse the idea of a unified Lithuania (of course, with the Prussians in a good light).
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. Investigations into heat continue as industry is constructed all around the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Dissection continues to increase knowledge of events in the human body. All around the nation, more and more children are surviving into their teenage years. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. Uttarshina is expanded by 4600 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The SOC continously states that the lands in South America are rightfully ours and should be returned. The nation begins to get ready for war, and this is accompanied by the recent propaganda taking hold. With no response from the Dutch, the Raja is starting to get highly annoyed. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military, with the mood being that a war is coming and it might be able to finally give the people of the nation something to be proud of. This mood has been around in the nation long enough that a generation of those know it. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading.

Urbanization continues and pluricontinentalism spreads farther across Germanic territories. The Germanic Patriarch in Pomerania denounces the new Brythonic church as a deviation from what is acceptable from all denominations of Christianity.
    • Archbishop Emyr Owens asks the Patriarch about the denouncement. He asks what the Holy Catholic and One True Apostolic Church of Christ has done to deviate from the "acceptable denominations of Christianity." The Archbishop points out the retention of all Books of the Bible, and the ongoing affirmations of important Saints. He also points out that he intends to maintain the same organizational structure as traditional Roman Catholicism, and that one of the few differences is the lack of acknowledgement of confession and last rites as Sacraments (the only two Holy Sacraments being the Eucharist and Holy Baptism).
    • Oh. Then you might as well join the Germanic Church. Essentially the same thing.

Ethiopia continues to expand the military, economy and infrastructure, as well as those of the vassals. The industrial base of the empire continues to expand with official government backing.

  • Australian Aborigines: A figure stands before a crowd inside a darkened cave, and begins to speak: "It was over seventy years ago, that the Koori flag fell from the Royal Palace in Wagga Wagga, as it burned to ashes. As the KTC fleets burned in our harbours, and the Koori Yung fought the invaders for every step, slowing the advance with their blood, many of our people fled from our state, into the hills, and this is where we have remained. It has been a hard existence, but we have survived, evading our false masters and striking against what little we could. Whilst we lost our nation, we didn't lose its people. Now, something is changing. More and more of our people, who have been born and have lived under a false flag, are leaving their homes to take up arms and join us. They heard the call of the Rainbow Serpent, and have answered it. We are becoming many, and from our caves and crevices, we shall begin to strike out with more power and frequency at out oppressors, and we shall prevail. For time is the greatest opponent, and the Koori people have learned patience with our spilt blood. A great change is coming my Paratas, and we shall be ready for it. My name is Brojah, Grandson of the last Koori King, leader of the Koori Resistance, heir to our lands, and I shall have my revenge! MINTU WANTA!". At this the cave erupts into jubilation.
  • Please hold for Bavarian Post update.
  • Reiches Großraum Bayern: King Aldersson oversees a massive expansion of the military and updating of the economy due to industry. Gordon Freitag's steam engine becomes indispensable in factories. Stuttgart Steel Co. is founded. A massive urbanisation of Munchen and Stuttgart begins as people leave the countryside for jobs in Bavaria's booming factory sector. The military expands. The University of Munchen discovers a slew of new chemical elements to add to the periodic table. Water Wheels expand use. Coal mining really benefits from the boom in industry. Bavarian nationalism surges to an all-time high. With this in mind, King Aldersson disbands the GGU. The Bavarian Special Services intercepts a letter from the Brandenburgian Embassy in Stuttgart, a city that was ravaged by the Strellockian Wars. The letter documented what appeared to be ties between Brandenburg and Strellock. The documents suggest that Brandenburg orchestrated the war to eliminate the other Germanys. Note that Saxony and Bavaria are the only German areas that suffered a full attack. The King uses these documents as proof of Brandenburg’s treachery, citing their past habits of betraying past allies for land. The Reichstag sees this information and is enraged, war is swiftly declared by unanimous decision. Bavaria calls on all true allies, especially Saxony, to fight the treacherous Brandenburg.

  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: The "Stuttgart Letter" revealing possible plans for a Brandenburg conquest of other German States further re-inforces the Adligenrats distrust of their former 'ally', thinking back to the attempts to block Prussia from joining the GGU, remembering their opposition to the rightful Prussian war against Lithuania and a revealing part of the letter suggesting that Brandenburg planned to divide Prussia between itself and Lithuania decides the Adligenrat's move for itself. A letter to the Catholic Noble about the situation reassures a tense stability in the homeland and Markus is forced by the Adligenrat to turn his focus to a war with Brandenburg re-inforcing their allies Saxony and Bavaria. War is declared and Markus carefully sends all 15,000 of the non-Germanic soldiers to fight in the war, their first target being Brandenburg, he further drafts another 15,000 men from the south hoping to invade Poland next year. Money is put into furthering Corper's claimed innovation in hopes that it will help the war effort.
  • Italia continues to expand its military. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the further islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia continue to use a steam-powered form of the waterwheel and develop small cottage businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Italian troops rapidly clamp down on the minority Hungarian rebels and as the larger masses within Hungary are content with their quality of life and are not keen on changing leaders, the public join forces with the Italians in order to take down Leopold. Although some elements of nationalism still remain within Romania and Hungary.
  • Romania, Padang and Malacca continue to expand their economies. Greece and Siam continue to upgrade their navies. Yugoslavia and Hungary work on their armies.
  • Normandy: Frances Aquelac, still holding many powers in Norman government, is increasingly worried at the sudden explosion of war on the continent. In a public statement, she detests the current declarations of war, and suggests that the warring German states put conflict aside in order to pursue an in depth, extensive investigation of the "Stuttgart Letter". Aquelac also notes that Normandy itself is in a precarious position, having the King of Germany as its leader, who himself now wars against the other German states as leader of his homeland of Brandenburg. In continuation, she recalls Normandy's neutrality during the Stuttgart wars decades before, and seeks to resurface that point to the world. During the speech, Aquelac also notes the friendly advances made by Prussia, which mostly involve the creation of embassies and the resumption of peaceful relations. Aquelac proposes wartime embassies between the two nations, meant to relay information back and forth between friendly and hostile environments, and also proposes a series of consulates to be created after the end of conflict. In a daring statement, Aquelac also makes the point of Prussian agents in the country. In summary, the Prussian agents may stay in Normandy, but only to fully and completely settle in Norman culture and live under Norman laws. Prussian agents may also leave peacefully, but only if they register their full names and allegiances into the NIO espionage charter. Then will the Prussian agents be able to leave Normandy. Any agent, from any country, causing widespread disturbance, especially in this time of war, will not be tolerated and will be promptly deported. Aquelac concludes her speech by insuring the utmost friendly relations with Normandy's long time allies France and the Netherlands, and will support either nation when the time calls. Aquelac then concluded her speech. In other news, rumors persist among the Royal Councilmembers of a law being drawn up which prohibits the Monarch from declaring war on their sole counsel and would requie a tandem involvement of both the Monarch and Council to declare war. The HBC expands by 5000 sq km while Benin and Mogadishu expand by 10,000 sq km. Urbanization and advanced agriculture continues throughout the realm.

  • All the Germanic states expand their militaries. The independence of the Greater Germanic Reich from the Germanic Union is again declared in Berlin. All regions are re-elevated to state status and war is declared on Bavaria and associated states. The leaders in the war are East Brandenburg, Brandenburg, Poland, Luxembourg, Aquitaine, Georgia, Armenia, and Austria. The draft is re-introduced in Germanic territories and the fierce nationalist and pluricontinentalist spirit fuels the war movement. The Kaiser, who is an emperor once more and no longer a king, beseeches aid in the form of Russia and Normandy. Neu Berlin expands 4500 sq km north inland, as does Vinland, at the same rate of 4500 sq km. All vassals, etc, expand their militaries now gearing up for full and total war. The steam engines are used to increase production of wartime materials and weaponry. Meanwhile, the government is fully aware that the Stuttgart letters are forgeries, and several investigations are launched to find out what is really happening. We also ask the Mayan Empire, Italia, China, and whoever the hell else to aid the one true Germanic Empire.

The revolt is put down swiftly, and Kaliforno is dissolved, as the government said it would be if this happened. Xaman is reorganized into the colony of Greater Kaliforno, with its capital at the city of Xaman. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations. Trade offer is still open Italy (by way of Australia). Infrastructure in Zapotec continues to be updated. The colony of Halakin continues trading with the nations in Atlantia, especially Brandenburg.

Money is invested in regional projects to promote wealth and business. Middle class families continue rising to prominence in some of the more wealthy provinces, as well as some of the less wealthy provinces. Greater Kaliforno expands 5150 km and Haven expands 3100 km. The government heavily debates supporting the Germanic Reich against their enemies, and the very close decision is made - the Mayan Empire will join so long as it receives the territories of the French in OTL Colombia.
    • The Reich promises these territories once the war is won.
  • Russia expands its military. Kanada and Novorossiya expand 4500 sq km each. The Duma hears the Tsar's pleas for help in the west, and the Duma votes 453-91 in favor of aiding Brandenburg.

  • '​'Great Brython is torn by the War of German Succession, and decides to stand with the defenders, and sends military assistance to Germany, from all of his vassal states and various branches. He promises to consider making an official war, and the issue is stuck in Parliament. Steel continues to make a huge difference in daily Brythonic life, and the air furnace is regularly usable by average people. Steam is used more and more, and the engine has now been used by farmers, along with crop rotation and fertilizers. Population grows and cities like Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Rennes all become urbanized. More radical ideas are fromed in healthcare and anatomical studies are formed. The economy grows.

  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. Investigations into heat continue as industry is constructed all around the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Dissection continues to increase knowledge of events in the human body. All around the nation, more and more children are surviving into their teenage years. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia. Uttarshina is expanded by 4600 km by immigrants coming into the colony, and companies flourish as housing is built and roads are expanded to cover all three colonies. The SOC continously states that the lands in South America are rightfully ours and should be returned. The nation begins to get ready for war, and this is accompanied by the recent propaganda taking hold. With no response from the Dutch, the Raja is starting to get highly annoyed. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military, with the mood being that a war is coming and it might be able to finally give the people of the nation something to be proud of. This mood has been around in the nation long enough that a generation of those know it. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. With war declared in Europe, a large portion of the army is deployed on the the Mysore front. As well as this, a huge naval fleet is built up and hundreds of thousands of troops board it to head to America to give the Brandenburgs a real surprise.
  • Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 4600 km. Sindustan amps up on its army and economy. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei.

Conscription is re-introduced and conscripts are put into border and garrison duties, freeing up professional soldiers. The King-Duke and his closest Kabinett members create secret contingency plans in case Saxony is overrun. The Royal family and Kabinett will escape to Saxon West Africa by the most convenient route.
  • Anhalt: Conscription is begun, and all the nation's energies become focussed in the war, as the populace understands that this will be the be all or end-all war.
  • County of Cologne: Count Leopold himself leads his troops in the campaign against the Brandenburgers. The small nation's good roads are out to use by the allied forces.
  • Italia declares war on Germany citing that this is their second betrayal of an ally. Troops rapidly cross into Chimu and Southern Austria. Meanwhile, Italian fleets blockade the German Caribbean and launch attacks on the islands of Nya Syriac. The Straits of Gibraltar and the Sea of Marmara are blocked of all German and Russian shipping. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the further islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding.

The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works. Printing presses in the major cities churn out daily newspapers for the people reporting on various news across the Italian dominions. Aymara and Nya Gyptios expand at 10,000 sq km inland while Nuovo Brescia expands by 8500 sq km in Australia. Italian troops rapidly clamp down on the minority Hungarian rebels and as the larger masses within Hungary are content with their quality of life and are not keen on changing leaders, the public joins forces with the Italians in order to take down Leopold - although some elements of nationalism still remain within Romania and Hungary.
  • Romania and Padang continue to expand their economies while lending support to the war effort. Hungary works on its army while also sending supplies for the war effort.

    • Seriously just no
  • The Arabian Federation expands its colonies with the Zanj coast colony expanding 3100 sq km inland along Lake Kitara's southern coast as new towns are founded on the Lake's southern shores. New Oman colony expands 1000 sq km inland, too. The Federation builds up its economy as the Federation industrializes, which sees the Federation buying Levantine water purification plant designs and building these plants across the Federation’s coastline; with Khor Fakkan becoming the industrial centre of the Federation. Sultan Ghassan watches the war cautiously.
  • The Arabian Caliphate builds up its economy as the Caliphate industrializes and the Al-Khalil colony expands 2000 sq km inland, too. The Sheiks of the Caliphate are angered by Sultan Ghassan’s refusal of their demands, so the Caliphate continues negotiations with the Federation over the terms of the Caliphate joining the Federation. Elsewhere, the Sheiks decide not to join the Federation until this war in case they get dragged into it while backs are turned focusing on the new union.
  • The Dimurat Kingdom builds up its military as King Da’ud launches an invasion army to take Bandar-e-Abbas from Brandenburg after declaring war on Brandenburg this year. Elsewhere, the Dimurati East Africa colony expands 2000 sq km and the nation is industrialized, too.
  • The Qoyunlu Empire builds up its military as Emperor Uzun Hassan prepares to invade German Georgia & their Middle Eastern territories. He plans to declare war next year.
  • The Levantine Kingdom builds up its military after King Joshua declares war on Brandenburg in order to take over Adana.

  • All the Germanic states continue to fight in the war. The government reveals that the so called Stuttgart Letters were a forgery, and that King Aldersson of Bavaria was the one who originally coordinated the Strellokian Wars in order to gain control over Bavaria and Saxony. The Saxons, French, Prussians, and Italians are informed of this double-treachery and weapons are smuggled into Bavaria. (Seriously, come up with a better casus belli next time.) The colonies expand as usual. Thousands of troops pour into Saxony and Bavaria, overwhelming the enemy in Bohemia, but stalled on the Bavarian border by invaders. The Royal Family flees into the heart of Russia once more, and the Reichstag follows close behind. People begin to move farther north, but the war is not yet lost, nor is it won. Georgian and Armenian forces quickly beat back the Dimuratis forces, but the front with Baghdad is locked into a harsh stalemate. Russian re-inforcements, however, help to repel them back to the border. The government is quite shocked at the failure of the Caliphate and Arabian Federation to rein in their other territories, and relations are heavily soured with the general populace. Eighteen snipers are sent to Munich to possibly assassinate the traitor Aldersson and incite a revolution in Bavaria. Mysore is hard pressed to hold back the enemy, but the borders from before the last war are quite well defended. Vinland and Neu Berlin launch massive incursions into bordering Italian and French colonies.
    • Prussia states there is no double treachery and that Brandenburg styling itself as 'Germany' from the beginning shows where its intentions would finally end.
    • I have never styled the nation as Germany. I have been the Germanic Reich for nearly two centuries. Why? Because in Europe, I solely rule the areas that the Germanic tribes occupied during the Roman days.
    • Firstly that post is IC, and secondly technically no you don't, Saxony and Bavaria also do, Not sure about Prussia though...
    • Bavaria vehemently denies these bogus claims, citing that it was the brave men of Saxony and Bavaria that fought, and lost, the most during the grave early days of the war, whilst Brandenburg suffered only minimal damage.
    • Don't blame me, blame Von. You forget that I had the most powerful armies in the region, and that you created these stupid letters.
    • Don't mix IC with OOC
    • Brandenburg notes that Bavaria, Saxony, and France all made gains from the Strellok war, whereas Brandenburg was the only one to lose land.
  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: Disappointed with Wales but not considering them a true enemy, Prussian ships and troops are told not to attack Welsh ships or soldiers unless fired upon first. Danzig is captured by Prussia as the city's Brandenburg troops are taken by surprise by such a quick mobilisation. In the south a Catholic militia force joins with the new Protectorate forces and meets with the Polish army, while the battle is a loss and they are forced to retreat into Prussia, the Polish army takes three to four times as many casualties due to the battle taking place at a river. Meanwhile another draft is made to be sent east this time of 30,000 men. Meanwhile Corper claims that his innovation is delayed, although his Puddling iron and steel (which can be made more quickly into the final product than Konigsberg Steel or standard iron) proves vital in cheaply and quickly equipping and resuppling the Prussian forces.
  • Laītawiskas Protektorat: Having declared war on Germany and Russia last year, the first Lithuanian army is formed after a copy of the Prussian law providing for an army is enforced in the Protectorate and a draft of 10,000 is made. Meanwhile the Gemeine Magistrats are armed more heavily so that they can maintain order and act as a first defence in case of an attack.
  • Switerzerland:We join on the side of the German Reich and send 5000 troops/supplies to Bavaria, 5000 troops/supplies to Italy, and 5000 troops/supplies France,
  • Normandy: As the war escalates in Europe, Frances Aquelac orders Norman forces to be put on high alert in case of any declaration of war. Rumors persist of a Council vote which would prohibit the Monarch from declaring war on his sole counsel, but these still remain rumors and no vote has surfaced in the council. However, a vote is drawn up in the council to vote on whether or not to send aid to the Neherlands and France. Urbanization continues and Normandy feels the effects of Stage 2 industrialization. The HBC expands 5000 sq km and Benin and Mogadishu expand 10,000 sq km.
  • Iceland: Nationalistic attitudes within the Dutch vassal begin to grow, with many Icelandics calling for independence. The Governor of Iceland calls for expansion, and the islands off the east coast of Greenland are seized, along with the islands south of Svalbard. Due to their small size, and no resistance, a number of fishing fleets are built to farm their surrounding waters.
  • (Quashi has given me control of Iceland) Hailstormer (talk) 21:28, July 26, 2013 (UTC)
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The King continue to expand ther military, focusing on the navy. Argentium colony expands 5000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 3000 km. Warqama expands 1000 km north.
  • Oldeburg, Liege, Indonesia, Kongo, Dutch Persia, Cleves, West Munster, Warqama expand economy and military. Kongo expands 10,000 sq km inland
  • Great Brython continues to be in a confused state about the War of German Succession. We trust the German assessment of the documents as forgeries, but begin to launch our own investigation. Not really sure what to do, Parliament votes to hold off on making any rash decisions for the entire Empire. However, it is announced that Great Brython will continue its policy of sending military assistance to Brandenburg in defence of their homeland. Secretly, these military forces also conduct raids on French shipping.Steel continues to make a huge difference in daily Brythonic life and cannons now are made using Cardiff steel. This allows for extra disruption against opposing navies and trade, which causes chaos between colonies and mother nations engulfed in the war. Troops from De Mor Tir create disruption in the south of Argentium, a Dutch colony. The air furnace continues its rise in popularity, but by now most people have access to this modern luxury. Steam is used more and more, and the engine has now been used by farmers, along with crop rotation and fertilizers. Population grows and cities like Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Rennes all become urbanized. More radical ideas are fromed in healthcare and anatomical studies are formed. The military grows.
  • The WTC oversees the expansion of De Mor Tir 3000 sq km, as Tulpung yr Aber also grows 3000 sq km. The Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco both announce, without assistance from mainland Brython, that they intend to send aid against the Bavarian coalition. Immediately, disruption of lands in Carthage begins, and the French trade in the Mediterranean is halted by blocking the Straits of Hercules with German fleets. Vassalization is put on hold for now. Hobyo-Somalia also choses to send aid on the German side. New South Wales sends aid against the Italian colonies in Australis, and begins navally raiding them. The Apostolic Church movement begins to catch on in all states, especially in the Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco.
  • The Apostolic Church continues the canonization of Saints, and the redistricting of parishes. New canon law starts to be put in place. It is decided that, similar to the Ecumenial Patriarch, or Pope, the Apostolic Church will have the Prime Bishop, who will rule over Archbishops, Bishops, and Priests.
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. Investigations into heat continue as industry is constructed all around the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Dissection continues to increase knowledge of events in the human body. All around the nation, more and more children are surviving into their teenage years.

Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. With war declared in Europe, a large portion of the army is deployed on the the Mysore front. The fleets headed to America divert and head to Europe instead as the naval commander feels that his fleet would be more useful supporting the Bavarians and French as well as their long tome standing ally the Italians. The well manufactured weapons help the Maharajyan armies significantly.
    • WHY???? What response? Take a pill!!!
    • That's metagaming. You saw the pox mod event of last year and changed course. Might I remind you that if they set sail when the temperature was good in the Indian Ocean, they would have arrived in Neu Berlin sometime in the late summer of 1774.
    • Oh no. I just realised that it might seem so. This was because I was deciding whether my forces were going to send (L) aid or (M) aid. I decided the latter. Sorry if it may seem to be metagaming.
  • Rajputana expands its army and economy heavily, and Naya Punjab grows by 4600 km. Sindustan amps up on its army and economy. The Khmers expand their economy and army, so do Mataram and Brunei. The puppet state of Naya Bihar expands by 10,000 km inland and they build up their army. Many Orissans begin to settle in Naya Bihar, which as a puppet state has more freedom than the colonies. Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure. All nations send troops to the war effort.

Troops continue to fight. The King dismisses Brandenburg's convient little "discovery", standing fully behind the Security Services. Bavaria is not evil and would never jeopardize the stability of Europe. It was Bavaria and Saxony that created the GGU, which kept the peace, until Strellock. Bavaria is innocent. The Royal family is sent to Australis while the King takes command of a division in Bohemia. The Reichstag temporarily convenes and is relocated to North Tyrol. Bavaria thanks its allies for the aid.

New Oman colony expands 1000 sq km inland, too. The Federation builds up its economy as the Federation industrializes, which sees the Federation buying Levantine water purification plant designs and building these plants across the Federation’s coastline.
    • Note Rex, I assume you are raiding the Arabian Federation's Australian colony of New Oman when you posted: "Italian, Arab, and Ethiopian New South Wales sends aid against the Italian colonies in Australis, and begins navally raiding them." because the Arabian Federation isn't in the war so you're just randomly attacking my nation ~Von.
    • Yeah, that post was pretty messed up. I posted it, but it ruined the coding for the page, so it was undone. When I copied it to repost, I did edit a few things, but that was overlooked. It originally stated that we raided Italian, Arab and Ethiopian areas in Africa (Warsangali, Adal, Nuovo Milano), but I overlooked that in editting. Also, that sentence makes no sense, which I am sure you can tell, so don't use it for anything. I will go back and change that. ~Rex
    • Okay, then. I'll change my own post if you're not attacking New Oman. Also, Warsangali (my vassal) isn't in the war but Levantine South Africa is as its Levant's colony ~Von.
  • The Arabian Caliphate builds up its economy as the Caliphate industrializes and the Al-Khalil colony expands 2000 sq km inland, too.

  • Hispaniola is captured by Italian forces and Nya Syriac is on the verge of defeat. Troops from those fronts are diverted to Nuovo Venexia where the German invasion is defeated by a combination of strategy and the plague. Nuovo Venexia begins a strict quarantine with not a soul allowed to cross the border. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the further islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia continue to use a steam-powered form of the waterwheel and develop small cottage businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons. Italia and its subject nations continue to experience a declining death rate as a result of greater understanding of how the human body works.

  • Iceland: Nationalistic attitudes within the Dutch vassal continue to grow, with many Icelandics calling for independence. A number of small protests break out, and there are reports of some violent behaviour by certain radical elements within these protests. The Governor of Iceland continues the push for expansion, and a number of islands are seized to the east of Svalbard. Like the previous year, the waters surrounding these islands begin to be farmed by fishing fleets.
    • King Niejmen II, ordered the arrest and execution of the governor of Iceland, and sends his son William, to be put in charge of the affairs of the island, and overcome the crisis. (All yours)
  • Normandy: As the war progresses, many groups in Rouen ad Caux call for immediate involvement in the war. Many prominent, aristocratic groups in the cities call for allying with the French and Bavarians, while those in the Royal Council call for aiding the Brandenburgers. However, those in the middle and lower class riot in the streets calling for complete neutrality in the war. Frances Aquelac delivered several speeches in Cherbourg, Rouen, and Caux, highlighting the importance of acting with care and precision, and that a declaration of war is a very serious act and will not happen soon. In other news, the Royal Council votes to send aid to the Portuguese colony of Antilia, as well as sending medical re-inforcements to the HBC, in light of the recent smallpox outbreak. The Royal Council also voted on sending a formal request for an alliance and trade pact with the newly formed Iceland, hoping to further better relations with insular Europe. The HBC expands by 5000 sq km, while Benin and Mogadishu expand by 10,000 sq km.
    • The Germanic Reich would accept the neutrality of Normandy and the Kaiser advises the government to stay out of the war.
    • The Dutch government sends undercover men to discredit the king of Normandy, handing out pamphlets and making proclamations, among the lower classes and key of the nobility. In this way search the brother kingdom of Normandy, be released of German influence.
    • Icelandic Diplomacy: We accept the Norman offer on both counts. This sign of independent choice by the Governor of Iceland leads to the Nationalists believing they are gaining ground, and the movement gains more support.
  • Kingdom of the Netherlands: The King continue to expand ther military, focusing on the navy. Argentium colony expands 5000 km north. Chile colony expands the north coast 3000 km.

  • All the Germanic states continue to fight in the war. In Neu Berlin, ingenious commanders have the idea of catapulting infected or dead bodies over the Italian border and into the Italian lines, taking from ancient Mongol strategy. Meanwhile the navy stationed at Vinland (Newfoundland) moves southwards to prevent the takeover of the Nya Syriacan islands. Neu Berlin and Vinland expand 4500 sq km each inland, trapping Baie d'Eric and allowing another massive incursion, capturing the northern part. Chimu cooperates with the Mayan Empire to invade Colombia (whatever it's called), quickly seizing the southern half, while they seize the northern half. Gibraltar manages to resist Italian invasion, since Morocco is supplying military aid. Combined forces from Poland and Courland manage to beat back the Prussians and force them back to their homeland. The Laitawiskas Protektorat is occupied by Courland temporarily, thanks to Russian backing, and West Prussia has been recaptured. (Seriously, despite the outcome of the war, Prussia is heavily outnumbered thanks to opposition on both the north and the south.) A combined effort between Brandenburg, Austria, and Poland
  • Btw, seriously I'll accept a stalemate, especially considering that you aren't only fighting Prussia if you remember but you can't win everywhere. I am not either, Poland is proving to have the manpower to beat back Prussian forces but I wouldn't say they are going to steamroll and the Lithuanian Protectorate is anybodies game as to who controls it due to the intense fighting there. You need all the troops you can get and you'll need them elsewhere, Italy, Saxony, Bavaria, literally with troops right next to your capital and other important cities.
  • Stalemate accepted bro.
  • The Mayan Empire continues trade with European colonies and the Lakota. Trade through North Maori and New Ceatl continues, allowing for more trade with Asian nations.

However, even more forces are sent to Georgia to help beat back the invaders, forcing Qoyunlu back to the border. Novorossiya invades Dutch Antilia and Nuovo Trevisia, being successful in both regions, completely defeating the defenders in Dutch Antilia and forcing the Italians across the Novorossiyan River and further inland from there. Kanada sends re-inforcements to Neu Berlin and Vinland in the north, carefully avoiding the south, due to the plague. Minsk and Russia proper invade Hungary and Romania, possibly hoping to gain some Black Sea coast. Forces from the Crimea and Kuban cross the Black Sea to attack the Italians.
  • Prūsiskan Protektorat: Danzig faces siege from large Brandenburg forces however the settlement is held off due to the greater equipment and experience of the defending troops although without relief they're sure to fall. In the south Poland continues to put up greater resistance than expected and manages to fight Prussian and Catholic Militia forces to a stalemate against further advances. The 30,000 Troops designated to go east ready themselves for an all out attack into Courland while another smaller draft of 20,000 men is made for counter attack purposes. Prussia begins to feel the problems of a lack of manpower as people are taken off the streets and press ganged into the army.
  • Laītawiskas Protektorat: The Lithuanian Protectorate faces multiple incursions from Courland, all of which end with heavy casualties on both sides as the new Lithuanian army and Gemeine Magistrats fight a deadly guerrilla war over their capital and towns.
  • Propaganda is pumped all around the nation, telling workers to work harder and faster as their future lies with themselves. Investigations into heat continue as industry is constructed all around the nation. Many scientists continue to work in the biological field. Dissection continues to increase knowledge of events in the human body. All around the nation, more and more children are surviving into their teenage years. The SOC continues ferrying the settlers into Amazonia.

The SOC continously states that the lands in South America are rightfully ours and should be returned. The nation begins to get ready for war, and this is accompanied by the recent propaganda taking hold. With no response from the Dutch, the Raja is starting to get highly annoyed. Thousands enroll and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military, with the mood being that a war is coming and it might be able to finally give the people of the nation something to be proud of. This mood has been around in the nation long enough that a generation of those know it. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. With war declared in Europe, a large portion of the army is deployed on the the Mysore front. The war in Europe is bloody, and although the Orissans want revenge, they feel this is not the way to do it. Many in parliament represent these views from the public and talk of withdrawal is started.
    • The Dutch replied ages ago Imp ~Von

Naya Bihar's economy grows. Butung also builds up its infrastructure. All nations send troops to the war effort.
  • In Great Brython steel continues to make a huge difference in daily Brythonic life and cannons now are made using Cardiff steel. This allows for extra disruption against opposing navies and trade, which causes chaos between colonies and mother nations engulfed in the war. The air furnace continues its rise in popularity, but by now most people have access to this modern luxury. Steam is used more and more, and the engine has now been used by farmers, along with crop rotation and fertilizers. Population grows and cities like Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Rennes all become urbanized. More radical ideas are fromed in healthcare and anatomical studies are formed. The military grows.

New South Wales grows its economy and military, also. The Apostolic Church movement begins to catch on in all states, especially in the Welsh Royal Coast and Morocco.
    • I can sort of understand the growth of Christianity in your West Africa territories but they wouldn't abandon speaking Arabic for Welsh after centuries of speaking Arabic.
  • The Apostolic Church continues the canonization of Saints, and the redistricting of parishes. New canon law starts to be put in place. It is decided that, similar to the Ecumenial Patriarch, or Pope, the Apostolic Church will have the Prime Bishop, who will rule over Archbishops, Bishops, and Priests. (Posting for Rex)

Great Chief Pius is rumored to be in very poor health, and with a succession battle looming, some factions demand a royal leader to avoid such power struggles in the future. Due to news reports from the surrounding colonies, Selk'nam teenagers develop a prank called "German War", wherein a group of Selk'nam youths pull up a wagon in fromt of a tavern, exit the wagon, run around it several times as if trying to figure out which seat to sit in, then get back in the different seats from which they exited and drive away (OTL "Chinese Fire Drill ").
  • Cyprus continues to develop its economy, sending both sides of the War of German Succession aid and other supplies. Crete and Cyrenaica, along with Attaleia also send aid. Nea Lefkosia expands by 2000 sq km, Nea Larnaka expands by 2000 sq km and Nea Lemesos expands by 2000 sq km.

The Book History and Decline of the Roman Empire of Portuguese origin enters France through Occitania and becomes a favorite book of the royalty and nobles as it shows the origins of the nation and its inheritance.
    • OK, you are really pushing the ASB limit. The majority of your forces are in Africa and Europe, not in the Americas. Even if you could push the Germans out, the Mayans really have nowhere else to invade except you. Not to mention that Andrew has guaranteed me that no one may take any land from Russia or the Maya in the case of their loss. The central Mayan territories are too far for you to reach within a year's time. We don't even know who's winning the war. I didn't take all of Baie d'Eric, only the northernmost part.
    • Not quite, the colonies have had a separate army ever since the Burgundian war of 1615 as I knew that if that happened again the Mayan forces would drive Nouvelle Bourgogne to collapse, and Baie d'Eric forces are some European troops that arrived after the news of the occupation and the Mayan troops will fail and forcefully return after a year of entering into Costa Rica.
    • OK. That is reasonable.
  • Carthage: The failure of the Welsh on taking Carthage gives a respect to the noble peoples at the eyes of the Carthaginian citizens, the military now backed by the French, force the Welsh never prepared for a war in the desert, off Carthage as the empire cuts through the Welsh forces, soon Morocco's northern territories are taken from Morocco and the fleet from the Canarian Islands begins making a blockade for Welsh and German ships in the Mediterranean to avoid an entrance of the Welsh towards Italy. Expands 10,000 sq km. Military is built up.
  • Occitania:It invades Aquitaine with French aid, and soon finds itself sieging Bordeaux although the success is far from reached as the forces are continuously facing wave after wave of German-Aquitainian forces. However, it pushes the people to revolt from the current Germanic regime in the kingdom implying that as Occitanians they should join French side, Germans are invaders whose only wish is to rule over the world, the French and Bavarians fight for the fate of Europe and the freedom from the Imperial Germanic Reich.
    • Bordeaux is too far for you to reach in a year's time as well, considering that Aquitaine really has nothing to do except fight you.
    • Bordeaux was reached sorting the Aquitainian forces and there won't be any mayor success on the city. Occitanian forces will flee to Occitania later.
    • This, too, is reasonable.

  • Graz and Lienz are besieged and Eastern Anatolia nears the brink of collapse. The front in Nuovo Venexia begins to break apart and a more defensable line is created in the eastern part. Urbanization continues in Southern and Western Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa. Venice begins to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the further islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Florence and a few other cities in central Italia continue to use a steam-powered form of the water wheel and develop small cottage businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons.

    PM2PrussianFront1776

    the current situation with the 1776 Prussian offensives

    The relief force of 20,000 men is sent west to relieve Danzig, catching the Brandenburg forces from behind they manage to break the siege however fighting turns into lots of skirmishes across the countryside. The Polish front continues being a stalemate although as the commander orders several large iron cannons, a plan is formulated to make a breakthrough. Meanwhile in the east, the 30,000 Prussian troops aim to move through their northern ally and relieve them while also beginning an offensive into Courland. However, military leaders fear this will just lead to a more violent stalemate in Lithuanian territory.
  • Laītawiskas Protektorat: The guerrilla tactics of the Lithuanian remnants, now being more defined and on a larger scale including explosive sabotage, swing casualties in the favour of the remnants however the Russian re-inforcements keep on coming and their numbers do not seem to be depleting.
  • All the Germanic states continue to fight in the war. In Mysore, a massive and long planned offensive regains Hyderabad. Thousands of new soldiers are added to the military in the region every year. Norwegian and Swedish re-inforcements arrive in Denmark and Brandenburg, bolstering the defenses around Berlin and helping push back the Dutch from Denmark and the Saxons from East Brandenburg. Men are called up from southern Poland to aid in West Prussia, and slowly the Prussians are pushed back, but with heavy losses on both sides. Neu Berlin and Vinland do not expand this year. Chimu decides to focus more on defense rather than offense, and manages to hold off both the French and the Italians. Some invading troops in Bohemia are recalled to attack the Italians, with several major offensives being launched on the greater Venetian area. Neu Berlin continues to use this form of biological warfare to fight the enemy, slowly ridding the dead and infected from Neu Berlin and trashing the Italian territory simultaneously.
    • I (Orissa) never invaded Mysore. I only send thousands of troops to attack in Europe, and even they are having second thoughts.
    • Ah. Got it. But that also means you can't take land if you win, no?
  • After decades of occupation by the Italian conquerors, the Anatolian people are whipped into a frenzy by the words of Julius Excedar, the last male heir to the UKAP; "My brothers and sisters, too long have we been occupied and suppressed by the Italian filth! Too long have we been part of there empire of misery and ruled by there armies! I am Julius the Fifth, last male heir to the United Kingdom of Anatolia and Persia, and i declare that in the name of our forfathers that Anatolia will no longer stand for this rule by the barbarian scum of Italia! Now they are locked in a bitter war with ther former ally, the mighty German Reich, and our allies the Koori have declared revlution in there homeland against the Italains as well. The time to rise and recalim our freedom is now! The Italian Age is at its end! The Italians will no longer rule us! We are Anatolians, one and all, free and slaves, we are the heirs to Kingdom of Rome, and the UKAP, and we deserve our place in the Hall of Nations! Today, we fight for independance, today, we FIGHT FOR FREEDOM!!!!." The speech causes the Anatolian population to break out into Revolution,, and after a Congress meets in Krizium from there various provinces of Anatolia, they sign the declaration of Independance on February 22nd, declaring the independance of the United Kingdom of Anatolia, and taking the old mountain capitol of Krizium back to use. The leader of the Revolution is taken to this place and crowned King Julius V, and he begins leading his revolution against the Italians, asking for the aid from any European nation who will help his cause of freedom. A cry soon breaks out among the Anatolian troops, "Anatolia for Anatolians, Italia for the Italians!"
    • Georgia, Armenia, Poland, and Brandenburg send some small funds and few arms to aid the Anatolians, hoping to break Italian power in the region as well as the Balkans.
    • Anatolia thanks the 4 nations greatly.
    • Italia has only offered the Anatolians equality within the Kingdom and allows Anatolia to hold its share of seats in the Italian Parliament (20 of the 300). Slavery in all the Italian lands has been abolished and Italia is industrializing Anatolia so that the quality of life is rising for the general population. Also, the Koori's have done nothing except for a little cave gathering. The majority of the population would be against this.
    • Fancy technology and a small handful of seats in your congress will do nothing to make them like your empire. It's their culture, it's not for sale.
    • You underestimate the power of a stable society... Minorities are very happy in many states around the world due to the stability of a society...
  • Iceland: Nationalistic attitudes within the Dutch vassal now expand at extreme speed, with the majority of Icelandics calling for independence. Large protests break out throughout the colony, and violent behaviour breaks out in all major settlements. The replacement of the Governor of Iceland with Prince William, does nothing to abate this, with he himself beginning to emulate some of the calls of the nationalists. Like the Governor before him, William continues the push for expansion, and a large number of small islands to the east of those already seized are brought under Icelandic control. Like the previous year, the waters surrounding these islands begin to be farmed by fishing fleets.
  • Normandy: The NIO (Norman Intelligence Office) apprehends several Dutch spies working to sour the opinion of the German King of Normandy. Several spies are detained and sent to interogation buildings. By mid-June, some of the Dutch spies were deported back to the Netherlands, however shortly after their departure more spies rose up, mostly likely sleeper agents previously. More commotion is caused and anti-sentimence for the German King rises in the country, as well as supporters of Anhaltese and French monarchs. To make matters worse, a scandal concerning two NIO agents is rumored to have taken place. Apparently, two Norman agents conversed with Dutch spies and paid them to continue their work under different identities. While this is still just a rumor, public outrage spills over and the nation is divided between Pro-German and Anti-German/Pro-Dutch supporters. On September 8, Frances Aquelac made herself the temporary Head Chairperson of the NIO, in an effort to combat and dissolve any scandals. In other news, word reaches Rouen of the violent rebel activity in Italia. In hearing this, the Royal Council votes 196-104 in support of sending aid, outside of the war, to the Italian government in dealing with the rebels , and many Norman politicians call for a less-hasty and unorganized independence for the Anatolian people. The HBC colony expands by 5000 sq km, while Benin and Mogadishu expand by 10,000 sq km.

This allows for extra disruption against opposing navies and trade, which causes chaos between colonies and mother nations engulfed in the war. The air furnace continues its rise in popularity, but by now most people have access to this modern luxury. Steam is used more and more, and the engine has now been used by farmers, along with crop rotation and fertilizers. Population grows and cities like Cardiff, London, Edinburgh, Belfast, and Rennes all become urbanized. More radical ideas are fromed in healthcare and anatomical studies are formed. The military grows.

The SOC continuously states that the lands in South America are rightfully ours and should be returned. The nation begins to get ready for war, and this is accompanied by the recent propaganda taking hold. Thousands enrol and are trained heavily to be part of an efficient killing machine. The nation continues to amp up their military as its troops fight on in Europe. A large number of air furnaces are made in ammunition factories to help build up the military. Bhutan, Kamapura and Dahod continue to expand their economies as trading with the Maharajya helps create growth. Much migration also begins to take place between Orissa and the vassals. Brunei's economy grows significantly and is useful for trading. A lot of the armed forces remain poised on the Mysorian border, keeping much needed German troops away from the war in Europe, which is going on. The war in Europe is bloody, and although the Orissans want revenge, they feel this is not the way to do it. Calls of withdrawing in Europe continue to grow louder and the Raja and Parliament begin to head toward a decision.

  • Cyprus sees the revolution in Anatolia and in response sends troops to Cypriot Anatolia, specifically the capital Attaleia, in case of possible Anatolian revolutions there also, drawing troops away from the colonies. At the same time, Cyprus wishes to have good relations with the majority of its neighbours, and the King wishes to travel to Anatolia to secure good relations with a possible future training partner. However, the King stops from giving outright support to Anatolia, wishing not to anger Venice at the same time. The King hopes these cordial relations will enable Cyprus to keep Attaleia, otherwise known as Cypriot Anatolia. The colonies expand, Nea Lefkosia by 2000 sq km, Nea Larnaka by 2000 sq km and Nea Lemesos by 2000 sq km.

Many Greek citizens in Western Anatolia side with the Italians as do moderate Turkish citizens of Central Anatolia who do not wish to return to the days of the Ottoman Empire when wars constantly threatened the populace. Rebel forces are defeated in several key battles near Konya, Ankara and Adana forcing the small, disorganized "Anatolian troops" to retreat to their mountain fortressess. Italia sends the larges giant bombards to these sites and tests out the largest artillery pieces ever created with their explosive shells. After continuous bombardment for over a week the fortress is forced to surrender and "King Julius" is arrested and put on trial for high treason. Many in Anatolia wish to see him hanged as he has disrupted the stability of the region. Meanwhile Nuovo Treviso sends troops to aid Nuovo Venexia and the two push into Neu Berlin's territories. The outbreak of plague damages the army but morale is boosted by a successful attack over the Bela River into Neu Berlin.

Devereux and Severn were tried on July 13, 1777 for treachery and obstruction of justice. They were each sentenced to 30 years in prison, effecting September 30. Frances Aqeulac continues to be both the Monarchial Representative and Chairwoman of the NIO. She is expected to appoint a new Chairperson next year. In response to a new wave of revolts in Yugoslavia, the Royal Council votes to continue to send aid to Italia. A furthur vote will make all aid sent to Italia be used only in quelling the revolts and any Norman troops used in the current, German war will automatically nullify the vote and cancel all aid sent to Italia. The vote will be valid until January 1, 1780, considering the revolts still exist at the time. Many government officials denounce the existence of both Yugoslavia and Anatolia.

The Icelandic Imperium is founded. Prince William is crowned as Emperor Of The Imperium, and is now known as Emperor William I. In his first act as Emperor, he orders a policy of continous expansion, and as a result more islands are seized to the east of those already claimed. A request is sent to the Dutch King, requesting a trade deal, alliance, and recognition of the Imperium's independent status. It is also noted that any independent recognition of sovereignty by other states shall be met with positive relations.
    • ​Bavaria Recognises the independence of Iceland and a trade alliance. We also agree to sell Bavaria's north island for 2,000,000 thalers.

They occupy territory in Southern North Dakota, and Northern South Dakota. The tribes experience a small population boom from their settled lifestyle, leading to explorers and scouts for the River Lakota going in many directions to find new land to claim for their expanding population. The tribal capital of Wiconiwico U consists mainly of Teepees made of buffalo hide, but they are a bit larger than Plains Indian Teepees, with lower Tribal Chiefs having two or three small rooms, and Watching Hawks having four small rooms. The ideas of Western nations have yet to make considerable impact on Lakota lifestyle, save for the known existence of more advanced civilizations not far from the River Lakotas territory.
    • Dean played as the Lakota a while ago, and I (Mayans) had traded with him. When he stopped, I still continued trading.

    • No problem, just means we have pre-existing relations.
  • The populace in Italia grows slightly discontent with the fact that hostilities were called off and many blame Bavaria and Saxony for calling off a war where Italia was set to gain much in both territory and prestiege.

Nuovo Venexia recovers from the bout of the plague but shuts of the border with Neu Berlin.

The last rebels in Anatolia are mopped up with little effort with help from the general populace as bounties have been placed of the heads of the rebels. Urbanization continues in Italia at a rapid pace especially in the port cities of Naples, Palermo and Genoa.

Venice continues to make a name for itself in tourism for the upper class, education and naval construction in some of the further islands with the lagoon's sheltered and settled condition proving to be perfect for shipbuilding. Merchants in Florence and a few other cities in central Italia begin to compete with Eastern Italia by purchasing many of these cottage businesses and developing them into small connected businesses. Scientists from across Europe flock to witness the almost constant public demonstrations and experiments at the University of Venice in the field of chemistry. Meanwhile, the University of Milan and the University of Istria continue to lead in the study of human anatomy with near daily dissections much to the displeasure of the local populace. The University of Southern Tyrolia makes progress in the field of astronomy, identifying a few new stars and moons.

  • The Great Haruwin of the Selk'nam: Yagich Rafael expands by 800 sq km. Military and economy continue to be built up. The council of chiefs is deeply divided as to who should replace Great Chief Pius. The Nobles of Ona Yagich deeply desire an aristocratic chief from the capital to succeed the previous two "savages" to have served as Chiefs, and they increasingly clamour for a royal system to be led by an Ona Yagich elite family. With John Chongat having discredited the idea of a roayls system with his rebellion, the descentdants of Cornelius Tuch'huelpe are seen by the royalists as their best chance to instituionalize power in Ona Yagich, despite their having associated more with Pius and his compatriots. The matter is further complicated by the lack of male descendants of the elder Cornelius's two daughters. Meanwhile, chiefs from outside the capital refuse to back a candidate who will return power to Ona Yagich. After a furious first few rounds of voting, the Ona Yagich elites put forward a surprise candidate in Damasus Gunun'ichin'Demortir - the half-Welsh nephew of Pius, husband of Tuch'huelpe's eldest granddaughter Mary Magdelene Tuch'huelpe'ichin'nam, and father of Brython's Queen Praxedes. His Welsh blood and connection to Pius were thought to have been an impediment to his becoming a candidiate, but he proves an acceptable compromise due to the fact that his is a K'onipian by birth, but spent much of his early life as the sone of a diplomat in De Mor Tir, before marrying into the most elite family in Ona Yagich. While all sides are skeptical, he proves and acceptable compromise and becomes Great Chief Damasus in a massive landslide. This leads to much talk of an eventual royal succession among the nobility of Ona Yagich - as while Damasus is merely married into the House of Tuch'huelpe, he is also the father-in-law of Madoc IV will be grandfather of any heirs to the Brythonic throne. Damasus denies that he has any intention of insituting a monarchy, but this does not stop the royalist faction from organizing rallies in favor of a monarchy based on his descendants through Praxedes. Royalist Chiefs begin referring the "Royal House of Chongat-Tuch'huelpe-Pugh" and request that Praxedes herself be installed as "heir-apparent to the Selk'nam throne".
  • In Great Brython steel continues to make a huge difference in daily Brythonic life and cannons now are made using Cardiff steel. This allows for extra disruption against opposing navies and trade, which causes chaos between colonies and mother nations engulfed in the war.

1779

The war continues to rage on as the nations fighting continue to distrust one another. Peace is not found as the people grow to hate their enemies and compromise is unable to be found.

Okay, guys. I'm not allowing that war to end with a status quo, as Kun said on the talk page it's metagaming. Long bloody wars don't just end with the two sides making up and becoming allies again. ~Von.
So how about a bloody stalemate and people coming to peace with each other, slowly by slowly? Also, no one said anyone was allied.
So, if we agree to a ceasefire in-game, with all of the bells and whistles, we can end the war? Besides, this isn't us making up, this is us saying we're tired of fighting.
Monetary reparations and land swaps are negotiable as well. So I don't see why peaces can't be reached.

    • River Lakota Diplomacy: We request to trade with the Mayan Empire for water wheel technology to allow for better process of grains. (Since Dean played as the Lakota before, how far along we're they culturally and technologically?)
    • Dean played as them before we industrialized, I believe. If you look on the map, the Lakota are the purple area in North America, meaning they will be one of the last to industrialize. I'm not sure if I can send you the water wheel, you may have to ask a mod.
    • No you can't. They have to industrialize according to the schedule set out by the industrialization tables & map ~Von
  • UMSHM: The Generals on the Northern front manage to break through Brandenburger lines, gaining the first real victory in over a year. Although not much land is gained, the Battle of Cottbus does manage to lift the spirits of the beleaguered soldiers, and the population as a whole. Propaganda in the form of leaflets and songs begins to be used by the government to help keep up morale, and recruit numbers. King-Duke Wolfram makes the victorious general "Graf zu Cottbus" in recognition of his triumph. Wolfram's daughter Charlotte (who is 16, I think) settles into the Imperial court in Munchen, however, as heir to the throne, she will return to Dresden periodically to attend functions &c. In the colonies: The rest of the royal family continues to reside in Saxon West Africa. They are impressed with how modern and European the capital is, and how productive the farms and towns. They cannot abide the heat, however. The colonial populace, led by the Governor, is glad to host them, as they feel it gives their outpost some class. A small "West African Volunteers" regiment is formed to fight in Europe for the "mother country", consisting of white officers and mainly black and creole soldiers. In Saxon Australis, the military sets up a small fort on the very tip of that damned peninsula, signalling the completion of years of expansion onto it. Apart from a few raids on enemy vessels, nothing much happens. Things are not so rosy in the Guinea Schutzbegiet. The guerrilla campaign has left much of the Eastern border region badly damaged, and this year's crop is particularly bad.
