The African fleet continues to assist local tribes in exchange for promises of loyalty and further facilities to get products, and in a few years will build the first colony in Africa. We accept part of the Milan position.
  • Bosnia and Serbia: The army continues to grow in size and expand military construction throughout the Grand Duchy.

King Erik sympathizes with the Dutch and funds them in secret. The actions of Erik IV in Slesvig-Holsten inspire the governor of Svenska Pommern to deport some Kappelists as well, though to a different nearby island (Jamaica).

1541

The Korean Empire collapses into anarchy after the former Emperor dies childless. The former Manchurian territories opt to rejoin the homeland in order to escape the chaos engulfing Korea. The provincial governor of Formosa declares the independence of the Empire of Formosa, seizing the Korean territory in the Philippines. NOTE: This isn't due to any personal feelings toward Korea and Pita. This is because he's evidently become much more interested in Axis Vs Allies than this game. If you can't post at least once during a business week you become inactive.

Segalenic theology becomes more and more popular in Britanny, and spreads farther to Ireland and England and the rest of France.

A group of bishops gathers together to demand that a holy war begin against the various Protestant theologies sweeping Europe.

OK, we need to have some religious war going on, everyone is acting far too peaceful in Europe.

  • Brandenburg's secret police discovers the renegade Bishop in Mecklenburg. They bring him back. He is given a trial that seems fair to outsiders, containing three Catholics, three Orthodox and three Kappelists (Catholic actors, really). He is sentenced to death! He is executed by poison intake. Meanwhile, the military continues to build up and Neu Berlin expands 1000 sq km. (Neu Berlin should be massive now, but yet I am still limited to the eastern half of Long Island.)
    • Be realistic, it's been less than 30 years since that colony was founded. You can't own all of New York in that amount of time. Besides, two other countries have colonies in the surrounding area that may or may not have expanded into the area because here, New York does not exist so its boundaries are not set.
    • Either you must not be seeing the map well, or you are looking at the wrong map. Your colony already spans the northern coast of New Jersey in 1540. Please.
  • Nippon-koku expands more into 霊烏路 (Reiuzi) (Kamchatka). The Satomi Clan builds their military up and continues fighting the Kagawa.

If they refuse, Bavaria may attack. Christmas mass has a great turnout despite the Pope's inability to attend. Hopes are that next year he might be available. The King contines to focus on unification tactics while having a panel of religous advisors, comprised of four Catholics and three Kappelists, oversee religious matters. The King is still secretly sympathetic of Kappelist causes but his loyalty to the Empire is stronger and he remains Catholic. Alliance offers are sent to France.

  • Novgorod works on the metalurgy industry and the icebreaker Bogatyr.
  • The Mayan Empire asks its ally Burgundy to aid in the attack on the Aztecs, so their threat can once and for all be extinguished. In return, the Empire will gift to Burgundy an exclave on the Gulf of Maya (as the Mayans have begun calling it.). Xaman expands 15 km. The army is bulked up in preparation for the invasion.
    • The Aztecs are gone and you have vassalized the Mixtecs.
    • But they're still expanding. Is it just a weaker tribe?
    • The Aztecs were effectively a non-entity in local matters for decades.
    • So, do I still need to go to war or can I just expand right into their territory?
    • About the "enclave" part, it doesn't make sense. An enclave is completely surrounded by another nation's territory. The thing you have is actually an exclave. And, you still need to go to war, as they are a relatively stable nation, according to the map.
    • Okay, thank you.
  • The Manchurians expand their New Manchuria colony.
    • You only just got all that old Manchurian territory back from Korea, don't you think you should wait a little longer until you start taking over Korea itself? I mean all of those Korean dynasties would be fighting to decide who is the next ruler of Korea but they'd rather a Korean than a Manchurian. Manchuria's hold over its newly regained territory will need to be enforced first before moving onto Northern Korea.

The King and his son travel to the ally Kingdom of Naples to make the first union Act for the future union of the two countries (This is my answer).
  • Scotland's infrastructure is improved by King Charles, who also begins to allow Segalenic theology to begin to enter the Church of Scotland. Charles sends more explorers to Antillia, and decides that Scotland should found a colony somewhere.
  • Papal States: (been so busy lately, need to post more) - The Pope continues his efforts to promote Catholicism in heretic-torn Europe. Recently, he has collected several hundred letters concerning beginning a holy war to end the heresy once and for all, and contemplates with the Church if one should be started. The majority of the members agree to another holy war (Sorry, it needed to be done), and the Pope orders the improvement of mostly military efforts, with ships being prepared. He anticipates to declare war on the Kappelists in the next year, and secretly sends word of the war to pure Catholic nations. The Pope apologizes to Bavaria for his absence during Christmas mass, but assures the nation that the still-pure Catholics of the nation are in his prayers during the season.
  • Saxony: (Hello everyone, Saxony's posts will become more regular from now on): Prince Otto, seeing as he has received no answers to his marriage proposals, marries a local noblewoman.

The Prince of Finland, the Prince of Denmark and the Prince of Norway are executed by a Kappelist group in revenge for the deportations and killings of Kappelists in Slesvig-Holsten by the late governor Erik IV (Prince of Finland). Luckily the other Royal children were in other places. Queen Christina was in Turku with Aleksander, Duke of Stockholm when he contracted pneumonia and died later that week. The overwhelming tragedy places the entire realm in mourning and King Erik commissions a family mausoleum in Stockholm. After the deaths of their loved ones, the Royal couple fall into a deep depression. Theresa, Erik IV's wife moves back to Brandenburg but has a special apartment in the Royal Palace. The Princess of Anhalt also moves back to her homeland. The Princess of Muscovy interestingly enough stays in Stockholm. After the murders, Victoria, Princess of Sweden rises to the status of heiress assumptive but will not be given the title Princess of Finland since Theresa of Brandenburg still legally holds the title. She returns from Lisboa with her husband Crown Prince Pedro of Portugal to be with the King and Queen.

Meanwhile, the eastern part of the capitania of São Vicente, roughly from the city of São Sebastião to the border of Paraíba do Sul, which is not clearly set, is divided into its own capitania, which is named São Sebastião. Coincidentally, existing two cities called São Sebastião on the capitania.

    • You are not Emperor, must be an election first.
  • The Imperial Government orders the larger and more powerful states to attack the Kappelist states nearest to them, and that those near to one shall support.

Meanwhile Venice is ordered into Miland.
    • You cant order invations, only the conclave.
  • Lakota: The Lakota continue their war on the Ute with some good results but elders see that it will take a great year or two to have the Ute people subjugated. Military is expanded and more troops are sent south to the Ute lands.

They install a Korean nobleman as King Yuri the Second of Kokuryŏ. They also continue efforts to stabilize the reclaimed Manchurian territory. Since this territory I'd mostly settled by Manchurians the processes have been going very well.

The governor of Slesvig-Holsten deports some Kappelists in his territory to a penal fort used solely for jailing purposes in the Caribbean (island of Hispaniola). King Erik sympathizes with the Dutch and funds them in secret. The governor of Svenska Pommern deports some Kappelists as well, though to a different nearby island (Jamaica). The deportations seem to be working. The Representanhuset of Nya Sverige passes headright grant laws, inspiring many to immigrate to the rich fields of the Bukten Sverige region. Expeditions return from the Indian Ocean and Africa. Contact is made with Ethiopia. King Erik meets with the Doge of Venice and discusses his plans with him. Secret funding of pro-independence nobles - rebels in Bosnia/Serbia and Granada begins.

  • Bosnia and Serbia: The army continues to grow in size and expand military construction throughout the Grand Duchy. All the nobles sign an Act: they will give their life for the king!!!
    • That is metagaming and not possible. Nations like Bosnia-Serbia would not like being subordinate to other nations that have a different culture.
  • Granada: All Granada is under the control of elite army, and also the population is happy with the new government, because they have more freedom of trade, cultural and religion.
    • Read what i said for Bosnia. Not possible. Especially since Granada is Muslim. Besides, you're metagaming.
      • Agreed, you can do something like that via a coup or revolution or invasion by another state. But that would NEVER happen willingly.
  • Inca Empire: Inca Manco II expands his army.
  • Papal States: Debate strikes in Rome about whether to start a war yet, and many believe Rome is not fortified enough to begin attacks. The Pope promises to wait one more year before starting a war, and makes major fortifications both militarily and navally. He writes letters to the Catholic leader's nations (mostly of the HRE, but includes France and England), explaining his firm belief that God's One True Word will triumph over the heresies brought forth by Kappel and his followers, and that a war will end in the Catholic's favour. Meanwhile, a Papal sailor from Provence visits the Pope and explains his wish to explore the New World, in order to better preserve the Catholic faith across the world. The Pope will give his blessings for such a voyage (and perhaps a settlement) once the war ends and Catholicism reigns triumphant. (a mod event for the war would be better than me posting, so that players can start declaring war. May the "best religion" win!)

    • ​As a Muslim nation, you would be too happy to just watch and wait as the Christian sects kill each other.
      • Agreed, stricken out for implausibility. Not only would these Muslim nations not care about the sects of Christianity killing each other, you aren't able to reach Bavaria as the nations around it are Catholic and wouldn't allow this.
      • If Bavaria wins, Christianity's power will be broken, allowing the Caliphate to do what it pleases without fear of Christian meddling.
  • Venice continues to expand its economy with investment in the Fugger banks. The Doge is assassinated and investigations so the assassin was funded by a member of the Italian League.

  • The Byzantine Empire readjusts to Venetian rule and the Steward asks Venice for help establishing a colony. A small Byzantine fleet sails to Jamaica and builds an outpost. Venetian ships continue to supply it and it grows by 200 sq km over the year. Byzantium begins to repair its fortification system.
    • I don't think that Byzantium could colonize that early. My accounts, according to the algorithm, give 1545 as the number, but I think that Byzantium would have to wait until later. And plus, Jamaica is already colonized by the Maya. Without counting that the guy who plays as Byzantium just came back, and you can't control the nation, as he isn't gone.
      • Those above points are true, you can't just take away somebody else's nation from them, that is probably the most heinous crime you can do on a map game. Never mind the fact Byzantium is in no position to colonize.
      • He did leave for over a week... As per the agreement we had, Byzantium would return to me if he left. Since he is back then I will retcon the last two turns. Scandinator (talk)
      • We don't have any agreement... Zengu (talk) 06:57, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

    • Would a mod mind helping me with the algorithm? I have no idea where to start.
  • The King of The UK of Bavaria and Thuringia orders the nation to mobilise the military but not to war with any surrounding states. The King states that only a freely elected Emperor can order HRE states against other states. The King grows worried of an increased threat of war, as the nation is fairly evenly divided between Kappelists and Catholics. The King (a sypathiser) for Kappelists asks the Bishop of Bavaria to travel to Rome and convince the Pope to not start a war. Fearing the faliure of diplomacy infrastructure and defensive barricades are constructed. (note, Bavaria as an open Kappelist nation was retconned some time ago, the nation is de jure Catholic but de facto Kappelist. Should war break, Bavaria will have to side with the Kappelist nations)

PMII1545
The Catholic lords of the HRE announce to the Emperor that if he does not ban Kappelism and begin an immediate war against the Kappelists, that they will leave the Empire. The Kappelist lords of the HRE announce to the Emperor that if he does not immediately ban Catholicism an immediate war against the Catholics, that they will leave the HRE
I'm sorry, but I believe the event is flawed by the lack of an emperor. Callumthered (talk)
I see it more flawed by the fact that right now even after several years - if not decades, even in the Kappelist Duchies, there would be more Catholics than Kappelists, at least that's what I think Sine dei gloriem (talk) 01:33, December 9, 2012 (UTC)
That's a good point, how much and how quickly does the religion of the rulers effect the populace? Callumthered (talk)
Fairly fast, all the places that converted to Kappelism are going to be predominately Kappelist now. The fact is, the religious war should have begun a decade or more ago, but people keep trying to put it off because they don't want their nations to be damaged in a war.
I (the Papal States) brought it up several times when I was able to post, mostly saying that "the Pope will give his blessing to begin the second crusade next year," but considering the mod events wouldn't start it I was just left sitting there. Could we get a definite date on when the war should begin?
Callum is right. We need a new Emperor. Meanwhile we have an interim Emperor, but he has no rights.
Until there is a Holy Roman Emperor this event is impossible.

While this, the Now Regent Helena, sends ambassadors to The French to determine the land that will be ceded to the Duchy, to connect with the Exclave of Dijon. While this, despite the Majority of Catholics in the duchy, the Duchess Helena of Burgundy, states: "At this Crisis that we are, we must not Hesitate on what is true, yet we shall not fight our brothers for their sins, after all, hasn't the Bible said "do not judge or you'll be judged?" and even more, we must avoid that our Empire fell apart for the misconceptions of ones, and in the case of war Burgundy will not join any side unless provoked, and if the situation is prolonged, for the sake of the duchy we will Resign the Empire", as well as officializing the beginning of the Annexation of guelders. The Duke of Burgundy Francesco begins searching for a duchess, mainly focused for a possible marriage and union with Normandy.

The powerful ruling family of Lauenburg, alongside their dynastic partners in Hesse-Wolfenbuttel, lead the official creation of a secret Kappelist league. The member states of the league begin supplying the Kappelist nationalist movement in Freisland. The league members also vow to help one another in wars by sending fellow member states either military aid or supplies, depending on the situation.

The Kappelist league members are Brunswick, Lauenburg, Hesse-Wolfenbuttel, Paderborn, Nassau, Strassburg, Munster, Breman, Altmark and Mecklenburg.
Player nations which are Kappelist can join this league as well (e.g. The United Kingdoms of Bavaria and Thuringia) and the only reason I didn't put you in this list automatically is because I can't force your country into diplomatic relations like that.
Why would there be if Friesland is part of Burgundy and most of the Kappelist fleed to Neu Antwerp as well that Friesland was annexed decades ago, and it's pretty much Secular, though de jure Catholic Sine dei gloriem (talk) 01:48, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
Because an entire religious group won't just get up and leave. Some will remain. However, just because they are supplying them, doesn't mean they will succeed ~Von.
Milan should be part of the Kappelist League, the same with the Kappelian groups in Switzerland. Is Austria Kappelist?, Bohemia?. - Bauglir
If they are player nations then make a post about them joining and add them to the list. As for Bohemia, I think they are currently too extreme Kappelist for this league. Maybe in future if they go more moderate though. I'll have some more NPC nations join the league next turn though ~Von.

This optimism that the Caliph will be a highly enlightened ruler spreads as some of the corruption of the regency is destroyed and ministers prosecuted. The regency, however,are greatly displeased as they see their empire crumbling away. Desperate to hold onto power, they begin talking of a coup d'etat...

    • OK, thanks! It will be edited.
  • Question regarding colonisation: I (Saxony) established my colonies a LONG time ago, using Burgundian ships. I find it QUITE annoying that only now, 23 years later, am I being told that it is impossible. Bavaria did the same thing, using IMG and Brandenburger ships, so, unless their colonies have been unmade, I think it quite unfair that mine should be. Regards, Callumthered (talk) 11:09, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
  • Both of you and Tibet are not allowed to establish colonies without a coastline. It is in the rules and on the talk page.
  • I retconned mine years ago because it didn't fit the rules.
    • I didn't notice it. Your rule breaks earlier so all of that stuff has never happened officially. Those are the rules, so that stuff is removed/ignored. I apologize for not noticing it sooner. But you should really check the rules to see if questionable things like that are allowed ~Von.
    • If I ceded him a small portion of the Friesland coastline. will he be able to keep his colonies? Sine dei gloriem (talk) 20:18, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
    • No, because he won't be able to reach this exclave, and plus, I doubt his capacity of sustaining a colony having no navy.--Collie Kaltenbrunner (talk) 20:37, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
    • Ok, well, If Bavaria's were retconned, then I don't mind. Sorry for the trouble. Callumthered (talk)
    • And anyway you would have had to do it 23 years ago.
    • Well, I thought that the notion of Bavaria having colonies without coastline nor navy was too ludicrous to be on the map, so it probably isn't.
    • Yes, true, I don't believe they are. Again, dreadfully sorry, I'll read the rules more thoroughly next time. Callumthered (talk)
  • Venice continues to upgrade its infrastructure. Southern Tyrolia breaks away from the main section due to religious and cultural differences and joins Venice.

Dimitri (the composer) is killed. It is suspected that he had an opium addiction, and this killed him, though most refuse to believe this. The economy improves.
  • Poland builds up the navy. Opium trading, though somewhat stopped by the death of Dimitri, continues full flow in Europe, where Russia is one of the few sources of the drug that these people can't get enough of.
  • Papal States: Before the Pope can initiate a crusade, he passes away in January. A new Pope, born in Bavaria, whose family fled to Rome to avoid the Kappelists, is named Pope Sergius V soon after. He believes that a crusade upon the HRE until the perfect moment, either when the Holy Roman Emperor initiates it, or if the HRE collapses into sovereign heretic and Catholic states. He does continue his efforts, however, to improve the faith building in western Europe, and is pleased that nations like France are still pure to the Catholic faith. Nations that have converted to the heresy are visited less, and more efforts are enforced to ensure the faithful nations of Europe remain pure to the One True Faith. Priests are sent to Cape Alfons as well, who notice that Muslims have begun spreading their faith in the southern region. Meanwhile, a crew of about twenty sailors voyage in the name of the Pope, and visit an island which the inhabitants call "Karukera". The sailors return to Rome and explain to the Pope of the dangers of the people, that they believe in false gods and that their practices were inhuman. If there is extra funding in the next few years, the Pope promises that a larger crew can voyage to the island to convert the inhabitants by force, and if there is wealth to be found in the island, may be colonized.

  • The United Kingdoms of Bavaria and Thuringia expands the military. The Catholic leaders of Bavaria fear the Kappelists (as majority of the populace has swelled to Kappelianism.) In fear they ask the Pope to keep the Bavarian Holy Relics in the Vatican. The King orders compulsory military service and begins to crack down on dissent. Bavaria becomes a very quiet place do to the uneasy tension over the Elections and the increasing pressure from the "Pure" states to irradicate Kappelists. The Bavarian Bankgruppe orders all valuable metals and assets stowed in secret vaults somewhere in Bavaria.
  • Burgundy: The Crisis at the Empire seems the same, yet the Empire is divided, Catholic and Kappelists states ready for the war, the regent Helena now States," Now the events in the empire have shown the inability to take control of the empire itself, and the remaining safe options are not acceptable, such as the Submission of the Empire into Kappelism or vice versa, while a war is as well futile if we wish to remain with our relative power, but all of us Know that until either side makes a move this will be the situation." "With this being said, the continuance of the annexation of Gueldres. While this, the vassalization of the Cambray and Protection is Extended to Utrecht. With this, Spain is Continued to be ask to Purchase the Brasilian Spanish Colony. While this, a new Colony is set in the Southern territories of OTL Honduras. While this, the military is updated in case of conflict and the Duke Francesco Co-regent with his mother is searching for a Royal Marriage, mainly asked as a possibility to the Normandian Kingdom (Can I get into Dynastic Union or whatever with Normandy?)
    • Well, you can't just ask. For a dynastic union, you would have to get somebody from your dynasty, regardless of whoever it may be on the other nation's throne, through marital ties. Anyway, you can't control a nation in dynastic union only unless it's your vassal. For controlling without vassalage, you would have to have a personal union, and those, while the process to try is the same as a dynastic union, you also will have to have luck to get a personal union. OTL Portugal already speaks for itself: we tried for some good 100 years or so to inherit Castille, and we never made it. While you, as Burgundy, already starts with this littoral because it inherited Flanders in the 1370's.
  • Saxony: Seeing as nothing much has changed in the HRE crisis, border duty is frequently rotated between army divisions, to allow the soldiers rest and time at home to tend their crops and families. The Elector tentatively begins referring to the Savoyard as Emperor, but doesn't openly declare him emperor yet. New snaphaunces are distributed amongst the musketeers of the army. The Cavalry division begins to be armed with pistols as well as their swords. The harvest this year is reasonably good, but state serfs have to be lent to many freeholders to harvest the crops on time. (Emperor, whoever that may be: Can some kind of resolution to this crisis PLEASE occur soon? Having troops permanently stationed on borders is getting to be a bit of a strain on our economies after a while.)
  • We have an interim emperor, but he has no power. If you only voted for Louis...
  • Anhalt: The Prince allows his entire army to go home for the harvest. Cannons are moved to the Western border forts. After the harvest, the army returns to the Western border. A scientist puvlishes a book on new agricultural techniques. It is the first of its kind to be published in Anhalt, and it is widely read by the literate folk. The information gradually finds its way to the actual farmers, who like them, and plan to implement them next year.
  • Archbishopric of Magdeburg: The episcopal army -since it is made up mostly of Catholic refugees without holdings of their own, and also since much of the arable land is owned by the Church and worked on by Monks- stats on the Northern border with Altmark. His Grace the Archbishop visits the troops, and gives inspirational services, while also bringing along some of the Holy Relics. His Grace distributes Rosary beads made by Monks and Nuns to the soldiers. His Grace and his entourage then tours the country, overseeing the successful harvest, lifting people's morale, and, of course, giving services.

Britta Klingenberg's art studio attracts promising young artists to Oslo. Queen Victoria tours the country with rallies welcoming her, since she was an object of national attention since her birth though many did not think she would ever become Queen--being called "Scandinavia's Daughter".

He is granted the title Denis (Scandinavian parallel of Dinis), Prince of Finland (traditional title for heirs in Scandinavia by his mother the Queen. Unrest in Slesvig intensifies. The statue of the late King Erik is being built.
  • Milan: the army is improved, the troops are indoctrinated by pseudo-Catholic monks (they are Kappelians secretly).

The Satomi Clan builds their military up and continues attacking the Amako clan, and by the end of this year they are defeated and annexed into Satomi.

  • How old this heir is?
  • As of now it's 20 years, and according to Von I can make colonies after 1548.
  • The last of the radicals is pushed out of Rajputana. Most of the radicals go underground and infiltrate the large and disenfranchised Hindu population of the Delhi Sultanate.

  • Brandenburg continues to build up military and infrastructure. We are almost ready for any war with Kappelism. Neu Berlin expands by 1000 sq km and meets up with the sector of Erokee territory we gained long ago. Sieg heil.
    • NO. For the last time - the amount you want to expand by is too much, you can't have all of New York State yet. Plus that war against the Erokee never happened because as Lurk said: "You can't take territory from someplace if you don't have a border with them or you can't reach them by sea. ... They (the waterways) should be on the map." So your war against the Erokee never counted and hence the territory you got from the Erokee isn't on the map. Here's the discussion to remind you.
    • But I can access them through waterways. And no one ever told me what a decent size to expand by was.
    • Did you not read what I wrote? Those waterways have to be visable on the map! As for expansion bit, where do you think rules about expansion are going to be? You never think it may be on the page with all the game's rules on it? Also rather than the amount you were expanding, I meant more the amount you think you should have expanded by. As in expanding 1000 sq km a turn is okay but you haven't been doing that for long enough to reach Lake Erie yet.
  • Scandinavia expands its army and navy; they build up their economy and infrastructure, with new roads being built. This year Nya Danmark expands by 1000 sq miles, with the borders of Nye Norge in sight. The Saalskap Av Bukten Erik continues its operations. The Representanhuset of Nya Sverige passes headright grant laws, inspiring many to immigrate to the rich fields of the Bukten Sverige region. Secret funding of pro-independence nobles - rebels in Bosnia/Serbia and Granada continues in conjunction with Venice. A famous artist by the name of Bjorn Nyborg is the most prominent in the cultural center of Stockholm. He begins work on several paintings. Britta Klingenberg's art studio attracts promising young artists to Oslo. The statue of King Erik continues work. The Queen expresses her doubts of the HRE, since their government is still in limbo. Bjorn Nyborg produces a grand piece titled "Den Sista Nattvarden" (The Last Supper) commemorating Jesus' last meal. It is hung immediately in the Royal Scandinavian Palace in Stockholm. Britta Klingenberg produces her own piece, which is displayed in her art studio for now.

  • Tibet: Lanna officially becomes a vassal of Tibet, and trade links to the nation are improved. New monasteries are built in both Lanna and Ava, with economic development being the main focus for those states. Tibet and the rest of its vassals focus on military development, except for the Wacheng exclave, which focuses on naval development. Several successors to the Second Dalai Lama are "proposed", but not are "accepted" yet, and controversy is caused among monasteries, even involving the relatively "new" government, causing some instability and many debates. The military development focus also draws some criticism and debates.
  • Cyprus continues to expand its Nea Lefkosia colony 200 sq km north along the coast of the Maracaibo Lagoon (Can I rename this lagoon? Seeing that I found it and all...). More settlers are encouraged to emigrate to Nea Lefkosia.
    • Well, the lake didn't had a native name, and since the name of the lake is derived from the city's name, you can do it.
  • Saxony: With the results of the imperial election still uncertain, and any kind of resolution to the crisis seemingly far-off, the Elector orders the army to return home from February until October. During this time, the soldiers help their families with business, harvests, etc. The local Battalion trains every third week, just to keep it in fighting condition. A small garrison is kept on the Northern border to report of any movements, but none are forthcoming. After the harvest, the regiments and divisions gradually form back up and make their way back to their positions on the border. During the period of non-deployment, the army's weapons are fixed, improved, or upgraded. The cannons especially are improved, and many are put on "gun carriages" which make them very easy to transport. (By gun carriage, I just mean the usual way that cannons have wheels, definitely not a tank).
  • Anhalt: The Princely army of Anhalt is also relieved of active duty for the large part of the year, seeing as action has not been forthcoming. The book on agriculture published last year finds a quite universal readership (amongst the very small literate population), and word of its contents become the talk of pubs and taverns frequented by freeholder farmers and serf farm workers alike. This year's crop becomes a kind of "grand experiment" as everyone holds their breath to see if the science of the treaties holds up to practical implementation. As the bumper crop is harvested, the nation breathes a collective sigh of relief that their massive bet paid off. The author of the book is proclaimed a national "Agricultural Hero" by the prince, and His Highness insists that the author is inducted into the Wettin's House Order, the Order of Saint Mathilda. The surplus of wheat and other crops is of great benefit to the farmers, traders and military of the principality. The first two make more money then they could have before, and the last has enough grain in its stores to last a very long campaign.
  • Archbishopric of Magdeburg: Again, due to the largely non-native membership of the episcopal army, it stays positioned on the border throughout the year. The treasures of the Magdeburg cathedral are returned from hiding for the year, so the worshipers can view the glory of God's One Church.

  • The Caliphal Province of Syria continues building its ports at Latakia, as well as renewing the effort of sending diplomats to the European nations in hopes of trade, trying to ignore the religious wars as much as the government can, stating that it will trade with anyone interested, either Catholic, Orthodox, Kappelist, or any other branch of Christianity.
  • The Caliphal Province of Palestine continues building its economy as a middle-point in between Egypt's exports and Syria's selling.

He returns to Mecca to assume leadership over his Caliphate but regent Vizier Abu ad-Din Yahya-Mustansir has Caliph Muhammad arrested and sent to jail in Medina to where he will be executed for treason. Vizier Abu ad-Din Yahya-Mustansir declares the end of the Hashemite Caliphate and the start of a new dynasty of Caliphs; with himself as Caliph Abu ad-Din Yahya-Muhammad, first Caliph of the Mustansir dynasty. Naturally not everyone agrees with this new dynasty taking over and the Medina jail is stormed by supporters of Caliph Muhammad and he is freed. A civil war breaks out in the Caliphate between the supporters of Caliph Muhammad and Caliph Abu, as the battle between the two sides leaves being tied to just Hejaz province but to all of the Caliphate. Muhammad retreats northward to build up support for his army to go and take back Mecca. Meanwhile Caliph Abu fortifies Mecca and sends assassins to go kill Caliph Muhammad.
  • The Caliphate Province of Circassia expands its military as the province tries to keep the peace between Christians and Muslims as more revolts break-out. A full scale organised rebellion breaks out as the Christians led by Bishop of Znamensky Cathedral. Tired of the weak government and the rebellious Christians, an extreme Islamic group called the Salafi Jihadis take over Circassia, declaring the Caliph in Mecca to be corrupt and weak. The Salafi Jihadis leader declares himself as Caliph Sunnah and the other two Caliphs to be frauds. He starts a campaign to take over the northern provinces of the Caliphate after he ruthlessly kills all of the Christian rebels and burns down the Christian towns. The remaining few thousand Christians either escape north into Russia, converted or are killed.
  • The Caliphate Province of Al-Slaveit works on its military and many Christians flee the province scared of being killed by the ruthless Salafi Jihadis forces of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas.
  • The Caliphate Province of Georgia works on its military battling against the invading forces of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas.

  • The Caliphate Province of Trebizond works on its military. The province declares support for Caliph Muhammad and sends troops to defeat the other two rogue Caliphs.
  • The Caliphate Province of Karaman builds up its military. The province declares support for Caliph Muhammad and sends troops to defeat the other two rogue Caliphs.
  • The Caliphate Province of Crimea builds up its military forces as more revolts break out and the forces of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas take over huge swathes of eastern Crimea. Many Christians are killed and the Christians organise their own rebel army to declare a new Christian state but they are annihilated by Caliph Sunnah's armies. Many Muslims radicalise and join Caliph Sunnah, as such the Crimean provincial government collapses as the three way civil war tears the province apart.

  • The Caliphate Province of Circassia continues to be the centre of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas's control as his new Salafi Jihadi government. They expand the military as they expand more into Crimea, Georgia and West Qoyunlu provinces. Thousands more non-Muslims are killed under the regime and Imams are killed and replaced with Salafi Jihadi Imams to radicalise the moderates.
    • (Using rubber dingy rapids perhaps? LOL jk. Hope you get this reference.)
  • The Caliphate Province of Al-Slaveit works on its military as it wars against the rogue Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas and his armies.
  • The Caliphate Province of Georgia works on its military battling against the invading forces of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas but slowly loosing ground to them. Georgia requests help from the other provinces.

  • The Caliphate Province of Karaman builds up its military sending more troops to defeat the Caliphs Sunnah and Abu.
  • The Caliphate Province of Crimea builds up its military forces as they fight off the forces of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas. Troops from the other provinces arrive by sea and the Crimean army begins pushing back Caliph Sunnah.
  • Lakota: Lakotan warriors turn back from Ute lands and only annex very little.
  • Brandenburg continues to build up infrastructure and the military. We expand Neu Berlin by however many pixels are plausible at this point, as no one has told me how much I can expand by.
  • How much time has passed since you made the first colony?
    • It's all on the rule page, you know where most of the game's rules are located?
    • I founded the colony in 1508. It's been 42 years.
  • Burgundy: The continuous inability of the Empire to choose a new emperor continues, the Duchess and her son continue threatening to quit the Empire if there's not an election in the next few years. While this, the Son of the Duchess, Francesco, 21 years of age, continues looking for a royal marriage, now mainly focused with France or Normandy, though any nation that offers a royal marriage is welcomed. While this, colonies continue expanding: Neu Antwerp 750 sq km and Neu Zeeland 250 sq km and Brasilea 750 sq km and New Charlesopolis 250 sq km westward, while demand of the Promised lands from the French continue (I need help on this. Stew is AFK what can I do?). While this, the Annexation of Gueldres continues.
    • Have you got any proof that he agrees to give these lands to you freely? If not message him asking for them and wait for him to reply. Otherwise you'll just have to use force rather than diplomacy.
    • "France: We respect Burgundy's offer, and will promise them land to connect Dijon with their colonies. The Auvergne French have more interest in the New World, anyway. As the Auvergne Armée approaches 40,000, plans are made to attack the Bourbon strongholds all over France, and take back control of the country, with plans to eventually take Brittany and Normandy. King Gauss promises to be to be the true King of France." That's the nearest thing to a promise that I have received. In 1537, after I, in the turn before that one, said we would like some land to connect with Burgundy's Exclave Sine dei gloriem (talk) 01:58, December 14, 2012 (UTC) and I already sent a message
    • Portugal offers Joana, 20 years old, and daughter of King Pedro.
    • Burgundy: We accept your generous offer.
  • The United Kingdoms of Bavaria and Thuringia expands the military. Unrest grows over the political stalemate between members of the Empire. Many people begin to voice that maybe the UK would be better suited as an independent nation. The King orders the dissent to cease or expect imprisonment (the King is pro-Empire) The Bavarian Bankgruppe opens branches in Moscow and Novogrod, as well as opening a new branch in London. The BRC develops a slightly improved version of the Russian snaphaunce, one that limits misfires and allows for relatively safe firing in wet weather due to a unique metal (or leather) flap protecting the firing mechanism. Research begins in Ernest to invent a faster weapon type.
  • The Manchurians expand their New Manchuria colony by 1000 sq km.
  • The Caliphal Province of the Hijaz suddenly declares allegiance for Caliph Abu and mobilises its citizen army to attack the Muhammadid forces off Medina. Troops and peoples supporting Muhammad are more easily expulsed or killed from Jiddah and the desert towns.
  • The Caliphal Province of Hadramaut also declares its allegiance for Caliph Abu, although does not redirect troops to help its remainder (instead granting them the keys to the major South Arabian cities) but send them north to at last massacre the Bedouins before their revolt spreads. They also attack any Muhammadid troop in the area.
  • The Caliphal Province of Yemen, while declaring support for Abu, soon bogs down into civil war with government forces occupying the province. The Province also begins violently rounding up and murdering many Bedouin tribes and blocks the Aden canal to everybody who does not follow Abu's armies.
  • The Caliphal Province of Syria declares support for Muhammad but looks to establish an independent Levantine Kingdom if the war in Arabia goes awry, with the Emir going as far as beginning to forge a crown for a future coronation as well as several writs and messages to several nations; they are hidden in the deepest storage rooms of the palace at Damascus.
  • The Caliphal Province of Egypt declares itself Abuid, for reasons that are considered only hoping to reopen the Gulf of Aden to the colonists and traders. However, worried for the war, Egypt does not expand its colonies but instead lose them to staunch Muhammadid provinces, that state "If we are to be ruled by somebody, let us be ruled by our true Caliph, Muhammad, and by our Khedive's brother, Sim'an of Syria".
  • The Caliphal Province of Nubia also declares itself Abuid and sends its troops overseas.
  • The Caliphal Province of Palestine declares itself Muhammadan, in favour of Syria, and invades Egypt in hopes to establish Muhammad's rule over the province again. The war reaches a bloody stalemate in the western Sinai.
  • The Caliphal Province of Tunis declares itself to support Muhammad. Troops and ships are sent to quell the rebellion in Egypt.
  • The Caliphal Province of Tripoli declares itself to support Muhammad as well, and invades Egypt from the west. However, the Egyptian army resists superbly well for its state and condition.
  • Scandinavia expands its army and navy; they build up their economy and infrastructure, with new roads being built. This year Nye Norge expands by 1000 sq miles. The Saalskap Av Bukten Erik continues its operations. The Representanhuset of Nya Sverige passes headright grant laws, inspiring many to immigrate to the rich fields of the Bukten Sverige region. Secret funding of pro-independence nobles - rebels in Bosnia/Serbia and Granada continues in conjunction with Venice. Bjorn Nyborg begins work on several paintings. Britta Klingenberg's art studio attracts promising young artists to Oslo. The statue of King Erik continues work. The Queen expresses her doubts of the HRE, since their government is still in limbo. Queen Victoria's royal control over the deportation of Kappelists seems to be working. The Queen is in shock as a great religious/political entity (Caliphate) like the HRE is undergoing turmoil, division and civil war.
  • Naples: 'The army grows. The King Leopold I is crowned Emperor of the HRE.
  • Savoy: The Kingdom continues to trade with Africa and strengthens all the factories. The army grows. All nobles celebrate the election of the King as Emperor.
  • Bosnia and Serbia: The army continues to grow in size and expand military construction throughout the Grand Duchy. All nobles celebrate the election of the King as Emperor.
  • Inca Empire: Inca Manco II expands his army. All people celebrate the election of the King as Emperor. The inca sent some gifts foe his victory.
  • Imperial Government: The Emperor will find a solution for the religion problem (The MODs want war?)
  • Rajputana improves the military and many people convert to Sikhism. More radicals are expelled. Many flee to Afghanistan further destabilizing the province.
  • Saxony: The Elector pledges his alliegence to the new Emperor, sending a herald to the Imperial Court. His Highness hopes that the new Emperor will remember Saxony, who was loyal to their agreement signed so long ago. With no sign of war on the horizon, the army is again sent home for the vast majority of the year, training regularly with their local regiments. Word of Anhalt's bumper crop last year brings the agcricultural book to the attention of Saxony's literate population. The landowners who implement the changes in the book in time for the sowing are rewarded at the harvest with bumper crops, and the jealousy of their neighbours.
  • Anhalt: The Prince, taking the lead of his cousin, allows his army to decamp from the border and return home for the harvest. The harvest is again a massive success, and traders begin actually EXPORTING wheat! The artillery begins mounting cannons on wheels.
  • Archbishopric of Magdeburg: Harvests continue as normal, and the emigre episcopal army continues to bivouac around the borders. The Cathedral is decked out with all the gold and gilt, seeing as war seems unlikely this year.
  • The Mayan Empire expands north. Kinich Kakmo's condition worsens, and his family fears for his health. Xaman expands 25 km south.
  • Cyprus expands its Nea Lefkosia colony north along the coast of the newly named Aliki Lake.
  • Venice expands its infrastructure. The Doge is worried about the coming war and strengthens the Venetian's northern border. Nuovo Treviso expands 1000 sq km to the west as Nuovo Venexia expands 1000 sq km in Cuba.
  • Caliphate Provinces of Candar, Rumelia, Anatolia, and Wallachia: Economic and military buildup continues. The Kappelists are sent money, weapons, and many other goods. The four provinces state that all Kappelist nations will be aided by all four Ottoman provinces.
  • Reminder: Expansion into light grey states is not allowed without war or agreements with the state in question. Funj and the colony in Indonesia have be retconned. I mean if all of a sudden Milan started expanding into Venice there'd be war and if Novgorod expanded into Scandinavia there would be the Great Northern War take 913.
    • Fine, I get that it is implausible (although there is a difference between Milan expanding into Venice and Alodia inheriting Fuji duchies) but did you have to point this up so late after I started doing it?
  • Novgorod expands their military and stuff. More guns produced. Exploration of Siberia hired out to Cossacks.

1551

In Henan, China, a severe frost in the spring destroys the winter wheat crop. Torrential rains in mid-summer cause massive flooding of farmland and villages, and in the fall a large tornado demolishes houses and flattens much of the buckwheat in the fields. Obviously, this causes widespread famine in the area.

The Miskito people officially establish a stable Miskito Kingdom. The new Miskito King sends a diplomat to the Mayans to negotiate the division of the region between the two.

  • Nippon-koku expands more into 霊烏路 (Reiuzi) (Kamchatka). The Satomi Clan builds their military up and Satomi Hidefumi continues planning.

Also, 幽谷 (Kasodani) expands by 100 km and 東海道 (Tōkaidō) expands by 100 km.
  • Portugal builds up its military. Meanwhile, Loanda expands 200 sq km, and in Brasil, Pará expands 850 sq km, and Ceará expands 50 sq km inland. Potengi expands 600 sq km west, toward Ceará. Meanwhile, in Antília, São Tomé expands 500 sq km north. Meanwhile, by a royal decree. A university is established in São Vicente.
  • Lakota: The Lakota begin to assimilate the Ute populations into their own. Military is sent to the lands to make sure nothing funny happens.
  • In The United Kingdom of Bavaria and Thuringia, the Reichstag orders that an order of withdrawal be drafted from the Empire in case of inefective leadership as many in the UK are dissatisfied with the Empire in recent years. The King stresses that it a protectionary measure, and should the Empire become more stable, will be unnecessary. A radical Catholic zealot named Markus Remus, in favour of Holy War against Kappelism, begins to plot the assassination of Emperor Leopold. (SECRET!!!) He begins plans because he wishes to destablize the Empire and to bring the war he believes everyone is ignoring, his other targets include high ranking Catholic Clergy in Saxony and Bavaria as well as the King of the UK. Remus seeks out extreme Catholic radicals in the north, mainly Brandenburg, to gain support (NOTE: ALL THIS IS COVERT). The Bavarian Bankgruppe begins to modernize the Banking industry, hiring outside intelligence from Venice.
  • The Manchurians expand their New Manchuria colony by 1000 sq km.
  • Cyprus sends ships to search for other possible colonisation sites, and settles in the OTL Corpus Christi area of Texas. The new settlement is named Nea Larnaka. Nea Larnaka is expanded by 100 sq km while Nea Lefkosia is expanded by 100 sq km also.
  • Saxony: Elector Frederick III dies at the exceedingly old age of 89 (I kinda forgot to kill my royals off at decent intervals...). He is succeeded by his son, Otto, who is aged 56. The new Elector declares a week of mourning for his late father. A statue is erected in his honour in Dresden. Meanwhile, with war looking unlikely for the moment, the regiments stay in their local areas, instead of camping on the border. This gives the army an opportunity to try out new techniques, new weapons, and new organisation. Almost every landlord and freeholder worth his salt uses the new agricultural system (detailed in the now bestselling book from Anhalt) for this year's crop. The result: Surpluses of wheat and grains for everyone.
  • Anhalt: The aging Prince of Anhalt outlives his cousin the Elector by three months before his own death. He is succeeded as Sovereign Prince of Anhalt by his 54 year old son, Leopold. The new Prince swears his allegiance to the people and nobles of Anhalt, and renews his father's oath of Vassalage to the Elector of Saxony. The army is updated, old armour, uniforms and weapons are replaced, and everything generally goes well. This year's harvest is again good, and the farmers and traders who have profited from the new agricultural system invest their money in the Bavarian Bankgruppe.
  • Archbishopric of Magdeburg: The Archbishop declares his allegiance to the new Elector of Saxony. The army is improved. His Grace the Archbishop commissions artists from Italy and Germany to become court artists in his episcopal court.
  • The Caliphate Province of Circassia continues to be the centre of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas's control as his new Salafi Jihadi government. They expand the military as they expand more into Crimea, Georgia and West Qoyunlu provinces. Thousands more non-Muslims are killed under the regime and Imams are killed and replaced with Salafi Jihadi Imams to radicalise the moderates.
  • The Caliphate Province of Al-Slaveit works on its military as it wars against the rogue Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas and his armies. However, because of the retreating of the main army from Crimea into Al-Slaveit, gigantic massacres happen to all non-Muslims in the province. Nearly a fifth of all citizens of Al-Slaveit are killed by the end of the year, some because they did not follow Islam as ibn Anas declared correct.
  • The Caliphate Province of Georgia works on its military battling against the invading forces of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas, which has taken over most of its territory beside the coast, where Muhammadid troops land.

He has a borrowed many aspects from European Music, however, and has had many assassination attempts ibn Anasids.
  • The Caliphate Province of Iraq works on its building up its military as Iraq recovers from General Al-Ahmad Burji's coup. Troops are sent to join up with Caliph Muhammad's army too.

  • Caliph Muhammad ibn Muhammad leads his massive army chasing after Caliph Abu ad-Din Yahya-Muhammad. Caliph Abu continues to retreat through Hadramaut province until he is stopped by the armies of Crown prince Yazid bin Said of Shaybah. The Shaybahan army and Muhammad's army surrounds Caliph Abu's forces who have taken refugee in the fortress in Salalah. The joint armies siege Salalah for about a month until the city falls and Caliph Abu is executed for treason. Caliph Muhammad celebrates his victory then sets about defeating the Bedouin rebellion. Caliph Abu's supporters across the Caliphate begin loosing prestige as their leader is now dead.
  • The Caliphate Province of Oman amps up its military and Caliphs Muhammad's forces win the war in Oman and its colonies. The expedition to Atlantia reaches Socotra where it learns of Caliph Muhammad's victory and so they turn back round to return to the Comchellak colony to continue on with the expedition.
  • The Caliphate Province of Nejd builds up its military. The Bedouin rebels are pushed back by Caliph Muhammad's forces too and Nejd (with the help of troops from the other provinces) also pushes back the Bedouin rebels too.
  • The Caliphate Province of Shaybah builds up its military as the Bedouin rebels are defeated and Caliph Abu is defeated too. Also this year, Emir Akram bin Said of Shaybah dies at age 78, his son Yazid bin Said becomes Emir of Shaybah aged 50 years old.
  • The Caliphate Province of Afghanistan builds up its military as the corrupt opium merchant backed provincial government are overthrown after Caliph Abu is defeated. The corrupt opium merchants are arrested too, executed for corruption and treason, and their businesses are destroyed with pro-Muhammad businessmen being given individual separate parts of the corrupt opium empire. This is done to promote competition and to stop the merchants from becoming so powerful again.
  • The Caliphate Province of Balochistan builds up its military and troops return home from Afghanistan province after the pro-Abu government is overthrown and supporters killed.
  • The Caliphate Province of Deccan builds up its military and General Ranchood and his allies in several of the top armies in India declare the coup this year.

  • The Caliphate Province of Koli builds up its military. They stop the Bharat coup and attack the new rogue province.
  • The Caliphate Province of Gujarat builds up its military. They stop the Bharat coup but end up being attacked by the new rogue province.
  • PMIIMayaStates
    The Mayan Empire
    expands north. The settlement of Xaman expands 25 km south. Kinich Kakmo is becoming old, and his son, Kinich, is being prepared to take his father's place in the oligarchy along with his uncles. The Miskito messenger is accepted, and the Mayans are willing to hear his proposal. The Mayan territory is successfully divided intoeight states and two vassals.
  • Venice expands its infrastructure. The Doge is worried about the coming war and strengthens the Venetian's northern border. Nuovo Treviso expands 1000 sq km to the west as Nuovo Venexia expands 1000 sq km in Cuba.
  • Papal States (My sincerest apologies again. This has been the busiest week of my semester and I should be able to pay more attention to the game now). The Pope passes away this year, and a new Pope Soter II is proclaimed Pope in January. The Pope has little intent for warfare unless the Holy Roman Emperor (or his successor) begins it. He believes, however, that if the threat of warfare continues to be prolonged, the HRE may be split against the heretics and the pure Catholics, and the if the Holy War is won, the HRE will have a severely difficult time reorganizing itself. The Pope is pleased, however, that a civil war is taking place among the Muslims, and thus the Catholics will avoid the threat of Muslim help in our Holy War.
  • Scandinavia expands its army and navy; they build up their economy and infrastructure, with new roads being built. This year Nya Sverige expands by 1000 sq miles. The Saalskap Av Bukten Erik continues its operations. The Representanhuset of Nya Sverige passes headright grant laws, inspiring many to immigrate to the rich fields of the Bukten Sverige region. Secret funding of pro-independence nobles - rebels in Bosnia/Serbia and Granada continues in conjunction with Venice. A university opens in Vikstig, starting with 16 students ... it is known as Erik University. Lubeck's port thrives as a major European rading center. Ny Norg Stad remains as the most important colonial port in Antillia with its 50th anniversary in sight. The Queen tours Portugal this year.
  • Brandenburg continues to build up its military and infrastructure. A lot of radicals meet with this Markus Remus and they plan the November 5th Plot to kill Leopold and the leaders of Bavaria, Savoy, and Naples next year. (ALL SECRET.) Meanwhile we expand Neu Berlin by 3000 sq km. (See now, I read the rules. The colony is less than 50 years or less, so it expands by 1000 sq km. I also read that a colony established or a region reached in the first 50 years of the discovery of the Americas gets triple the expansion rate. So am I doing this right or not?)
    • No. At least I think, as this rule is too vague, as it isn't clear. I, for an example, expanded on the rate of 3000 sq km from the moment I reached the area until 1547, when 50 years had passed from the reaching of the area. and, I am sure that you have reached this area more than 50 years ago, But, as I was saying...
  • In Luxembourg, Grand Duke Louis IX, 59, dies not long after his loss in the election. His son becomes Louis X and vows to eradicate Kappelism all over the Empire. Luxembourg also asks France if it can have access to port on the French northern coast and right of way through some French land from Luxembourg to the sea.
  • Milan: The army is improved, the borders are strengthened. The Duke continues funding Kappelist groups in Switzerland and Austria.
  • Genoa: The Cuban colony expands with the use of slave force in the plantations, the colony between Oyo and Akan continues growing up.
  • The Caliphal Province of Hijaz, embittered over Abiu's defeat, demands the placing of Abu's closest relative as Caliph and threatens secession otherwise.
  • The Caliphal Province of Hadramaut, embittered over Abu's defeat, continues massacring the Bedouins in the north of the Province. However, it joins the Hijazi demand and begins guerrilla warfare against Caliph Muhammad and Shaybah's forces. However, soon enough the Emir is faced with a pro-Muhammad pretender, a cousin through his mother's sde of Sim'an of Syria, together with his brother campaigning in Yemen
  • The Caliphal Province of Yemen also joins the Hijazi demands, but is also faced with a Muhammadid pretender soon afterward.
  • People in the Caliphal Province of Palestine request it gains the Sinai and joins Syria into a single province, in hopes that some wealth will pass into the region.
  • The Caliphal Province of Egypt, embittered, agrees to give up its colonies on Africa to Palestine. In return, it establishes New Alexandria, a new colony on eastern Sulawesi (which is labeled black in the map, IIRC).
  • The Caliphal Province of Syria returns to building its ports and sending messages to Europe, as well as expulsing Abuid nobles to Palestine, where they are deported to Bidyt Remenkemi.
  • Burgundy: The fear of conflict between Kappelists and Catholics remains, but joy spreads over the Duchy as the News of the election of the Savoyard as Emperor of The Romans, nevertheless, Duke Francesco I, now with the Portuguese Princess Joana as his wife, begins creating more adequate laws over his domains, mainly based on the territories Wallonia and the Netherlands, and Changes the Capital city to Charlesopolis, the City of his Great grandfather. He continues to quest for the Gain of the Land from the French promised during his father's reign. Nevertheless, he shows little to no interest currently over the Disputed/Promised lands and instead gives more importance to the situation of the empire, such as asking the Emperor and the Other Catholic states to form a Catholic-Loyal League to Keep the empire in one piece. While this, the Patriarch of the Orthodox Dionisius I is Killed in New Thrakia The Canarian Islands by a Kappelist from unknown Origin, this causes the fairly Peaceful Orthodox to Ask the Duke to Act against the Kappelists and side with several Catholics who wish Exterminate the Kappelists. While this, Expansion on the Colonies of Neu Antwerp 750 sq km, Neu Zeeland 250 sq km (Part of Neu Antwerp), New Charlesopolis 250 sq km and Brasilea 750 sq km. A new Patriarch of the Orthodoxy Of Burgundy is Chosen. Of Wallonian origon, the Patriarch Joannes I is chosen after a Conclave from the Orthodox Bishops.

​1552

Another storm surge occurs in Northern Burgundy over the new year. Hundreds perish in the floods and as temperatures plunge, thousands more die of cold and hunger as the floodwaters freeze, preventing many from reaching their homes and supplies. Many interpret these as signs that God is unsatisfied with the Burgundian regime and the expansion of Kappelism.

Kappelist groups in Switzerland increase with power Milanese help influences the region. Some talk of requesting diplomatic union with Milan but these people are ignored... for now...

A typhoon strikes the Philippines and Formosa forcing the abandonment of Formosa's colony there as supplies are redirected to rebuilding in Formosa. Hainan's governor takes advantage of the chaos and declares the island an independent nation.

It's not a colony, and I doubt the Formosans would abandon any part of their nation for any reason. It'd be like the United States completely abandoning the areas affected by Hurricane Sandy. Plus the Emperor selects his Governors based on loyalty as well as ruling ability. As such they are blindly loyal to Formosa. Plus I doubt this Governor wouldn't leap at the chance to cury favor by aiding the victims.

Minor revolts and rebellion occur in Granada, Serbia and Southern Bosnia as many within those nations seek to overthrow the overextended Neapolitan state. To add to that, in the aftermath of an earthquake near Cuzco, one man claims that the gods have told him that the Neapolitans are heathens that must be overthrown, he soon gathers a large following and they prepare to march on Cuzco.

  • Nippon-koku expands more into 霊烏路 (Reiuzi) (Kamchatka). The Satomi Clan builds their military up and Satomi Hidefumi continues planning and he plans to take Kyūshū next. The Mononobe and Rokkaku clans continue fighting against the Ashina clan, but began to have a hard time doing so. Meanwhile, 沖縄國 (Okinawa Kingdom) builds up its military. Also, 幽谷 (Kasodani) expands by 100 km and 東海道 (Tōkaidō) expands by 100 km.

Meanwhile, the Duchy of Odemira is created, with Sancho de Noronha's title being elevated from Count to Duke. Meanwhile, Fernando, the Duke of Beja, dies, and is succeeded by his son Afonso. The Duke of Barcelos also dies this year, being succeeded by his son João.
  • The Manchurians expand their New Manchuria colony by 1000 sq km.
  • The Caliphate Province of Circassia continues to be the centre of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas's control as his new Salafi Jihadi government. It is, however, having a hard time keeping up with its loss of Crimea. And by the end of the year, they surrender. The treasonous Salafi Jihadi government's leaders are all killed for treason and rebuilding the province begins.
  • The Caliphate Province of Al-Slaveit works on its military as they win back the province from Caliph Sunnah.
  • The Caliphate Province of Georgia works on its military battling against the invading forces of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas, as they win back the province from Caliph Sunnah.

  • The Caliphate Province of Cilicia works on its military and sends help to Georgia.
  • The Caliphate Province of Persia builds up its military sending troops to defeat Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas. Ahmedali, the young musician, makes a new instrument called the Karakhait. The Karakhait is a system where if a red wooden block is pushed down, a ball connected to the block hits a string thus producing a musical note. The notes are not evenly tempered and some blocks may be less than one semitone apart while others may be three whole tones apart. Ahmedali is trying to refine it, but doesn't have the money to make more.
  • The Caliphate Province of Iraq works on its building up its military as Iraq recovers from General Al-Ahmad Burji's coup. Troops are sent to join up with Caliph Muhammad's army too.
  • The Caliphate Province of Trebizond works on its military sending a large army to help Georgia repel the forces of Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas.
  • The Caliphate Province of Karaman builds up its military sending more troops to defeat Caliph Sunnah.
  • The Caliphate Province of Crimea builds up its military forces as they win back the province.
  • Caliph Muhammad, after putting down the Bedouin Revolt, orders Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas and his followers to be executed. He is triumphantly welcomed back to Mecca, where the mosque built to commemorate Marwan III is finished. Meanwhile, he orders his troops to march toward Deccan to retake the province from General Ranchood's secessionist Bharati government.
    • Saam, Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas wouldn't have settled for being second to Caliph Muhammad. He hates him and all he stands for, it's like the Kappelists deciding to give up and become Catholic again. I changed your copy and pasted posts too, so that they made more sense and weren't devoid of reality.
    • My rationale was that he would stand to be second because since he would be a great general, he could implement his policies in war.
    • We can always just use another general instead. Besides Caliph Muhammad is meant to be the military genius.
  • Scandinavia expands its army and navy; they build up their economy and infrastructure, with new roads being built. This year Nye Norge expands by 1000 sq km, with Smalnar almost in sight. The Saalskap Av Bukten Erik continues its operations. The Representanhuset of Nya Sverige passes headright grant laws, inspiring many to immigrate to the rich fields of the Bukten Sverige region. Universities become increasingly popular and the colonial assembly of Nye Norge establishes Ny Norge Universitet (NNU) in the center of Ny Norg Stad. Nya Sverige, being a plantation colony, seems not to be interested in creating any right now. Queen Victoria is pleased at her (and the Doge of Venice's) plan's fruition and continues to fund the rebels in Neapolitan holdings. The government contacts Brandenburg's radicals and ask to partake in their activities at least in Naples where Venice and Scandinavia will be busy. (All in secret of course, no metagaming, Quiari). Queen Victoria returns from Portugal and her son Denis, the Prince of Finland, comes with her.
  • The Mayan Empire expands north. Kinich Kakmo finally dies, and his son, Kinich, becomes part of the oligarchy. Xaman expands 25 km south. The Miskito messenger is accepted and the oligarchy is willing to undergo negotiations.
  • Saxony: The army remains in peacetime mode, with the regiments quartered in their home territories. The regiments partake of regular training and exercises, and general improvements are made. The harvest is again good, and nothing much of note happens. Spies (not so much spies, as information-gatherers) infriltrate Altmark, just giving a report on the general state of its defences. The Elector hosts a Joust Tournament for the nobles of the land.
  • Anhalt: The Army of Anhalt also remains on peacetime footing, training and improving. The wife of crown Prince Ernest-Augustus, an Anhaltese noblewoman, finally gives birth to her first child. Rather unfortunately for everyone, the wife dies, and the child, which survives, is a girl, named Anna. Although he is deeply sorry for his dear wife's death, and although he loves his young daughter with all the tenderness of a new parent, he realises that the nobles will never accept a Sovereign Princess as overlord, and he must remarry. So, Ernest-Augustus, heir apparent to the Anhaltese throne, is in search of a wife of childbearing age.
  • Archbishopric of Magdebur: The Archbishop, pleased with his court artists from Italy, invites musicians to his palace to audition for the role of court composer. The episcopal army is improved.
  • Venice prepares its armies for the inevitable war. Extra troops are stationed across the Venetian isles and several great bombards are moved to the Straits of Gibraltar along with a force of 20,000 men who should be enough to defend the most formidable Venetian fortress from any attack. The Doge notifies the general/governor of the area to prepare to destroy every ship that refused to stop for checks while passing through the Straits. Nuovo Treviso expands 1000 sq km westward and Nuovo Venexia expands 1000 sq km in Florida. With the population of the colonies fast growing thanks to Venice's urban capacity reached, the Doge orders many new buildings to be constructed in the settlements of Nuovo Venexia (OTL Jacksonville), Nuovo Treviso (OTL New Orleans), Bela (OTL Baton Rouge), Nuovo Padua (OTL Brunswick), Forte Celeste (OTL Miami), Nuovo Dalmatia (OTL Santa Rosa Beach), Acerbo Città (OTL Havana), Suolo Prato (OTL Flamingo in the Everglades), Nuovo Corfu (OTL Key West) and Nuovo Euboea (OTL Coxen Hole). Many of these settlements will obtain a permanent garrison and some even a university as their populations swell. The Doge, worried about overcrowding in Venice, commissions tens of new islands to be built in the lagoon and there is talk of many more to come as some Venetian architects are sent to learn the secrets of Dutch and German dike building.
  • The Caliphate Province of Oman amps up its military and sends many ships to attack General Ranchood's secessionist Bharat Sultanate. The expedition to Atlantia reaches the South African colonies and now sets off going straight across the Atlantic Ocean to try to find Atlantia.

The Army is ready for the oncoming war and the defenses on the borders with Savoy and Venice are heavily protected hoping to defeat any possible invasion. Great forces are ready on the borders with Switzerland and Genoa to help the Kappelist groups in case of war.
  • Gallura: The Kappelists continue fighting Catholics. More men are recruited and the Kappelist council is ready to help the Duchy of Milan. Forces are ready to attack Genoa.
  • Genoa: Ignoring the Kappelist efforts to take control of Genoa, the Republic continues funding the exploration of the New World and the East Cuban colony with many people travelling to settle down in America. The colony in Africa continues growing up. The Vauxists and Kappelian movements in Corsica start to fight against the government and Piombino is consumed by war.
  • Rajputana expands the military and many convert to Sikhism.
  • Burgundy: Duke Francesco of Burgundy continues claiming the French land land between the Exclave of Dijon and the Northern provinces of Burgundy. While this, the Storm is a great concern and the Bishops say, "nevertheless of the events in here, we must not blame our brothers for their mistake. Furthermore, even more we should show them our mercy, and aid them to continue in union to our same god." Theae words convince most of the people and some Kappelists who tired of the conflict, accept a partial primacy of the Papacy over the Duchy. Nevertheless, many Kappelists continue their hate against the Pope. The Kappelists who accept the Pope as a representantative of God, yet not the leaders are nicknamed. These are called by the loyal Kappelists as the lefrevrists as he is a Kappelist member who due to his being Catholic during his childhood, doesn't support nor accept the Pope's choices. Yet he accepts the fact that almost nothing will drive away Europe from Rome. He shortly after gains many members to his cult among the unsatisfied Catholics, gaining power among the Burgundians. While this, Pope Joannes I continues asking the Duke to act against the Kappelists. Nevertheless, the Duke is unable to do so without sparking a war, and currently more concerned about his new family as he has his first child, Ferdinand with Joana of Portugal, and the colonies expand Neu Antwerp 750 sq km, Neu Zeeland 250 sq km, Brasilea 750 sq km and Neu Charlesopolis 250 sq km.

1553

The Incan Empire revolts from Neapolitan rule, and successfully regains independence.

Mamash Dīn Timurid leads an invasion of the western portion of the Khanate of Akmola while his brother Godeng Dīn Timurid invades the east of Akmola. The pincer invasion quickly overwhelms the Khanate of Akmola and the Khan of Akmola surrenders most of his territory to the Timurids, and declares his rump Akmola Khanate to be a vassal of the Timurid Emirate. With this huge empire, the two Emirs declare themselves the joint Khans of the Timurid Empire.

  • Portugal continues preparing its military. Meanwhile, in Brasil, more precisely in São Vicente, another settlement is founded right next to São Paulo de Piratininga, being called São Bernardo do Campo. Meanwhile, Pará expands 950 sq km, and Bahia expands 550 sq km. Meanwhile, São Tomé expands 500 sq km and Loanda expands 200 sq km. Meanwhile, settlers from São Sebastião start to go to São Vicente territory, as the border between them isn't clear, which prompts Pero Lopes de Sousa, capitão donatário of São Vicente, to attempt to request a rearrangement of the borders to the king.
  • PMIIMiskitoProposal2
    The Mayan Empire
    expands northward. Xaman expands 25 km south. The Miskito Kingdom is offered the following borders:
    • ​The Miskito Kingdom rejects the proposal and requests further gains in OTL Hounduras and more territory along the Mosquito Coast.
    • The generous oligarchy will allow more territory along the coast, but not to the full extent to which the Miskito Kingdom requests, considering they kept the Mayans waiting for three years for a reply.
  • China continues to improve its relations with Dai Vet. Meanwhile, the colony on Honolulu is expanded by 1000 sq km.
  • Venice expands its economy with hundreds of ships carrying supplies to Nuovo Venexia and Nuovo Treviso to build facilities. Both colonies expand by 1000 sq km.
  • Burgundy:The news about the Incan Independence is heard, and aid to the Neapolitans is given if they choose to launch a recovery war on them. Duke Francesco continues asking the French to cede the promised lands between Dijon and the northern provinces. While this, the situation in the duchy calms down and the reconstruction of the northern provinces continue. The army is updated, and expansion on the colonies continues, as Neu Antwerp expands westward into Choco 750 sq km and as Neu Zeeland Captaincy conquers the entire island expanding 250 sq km. While this, another captaincy part of Neu Antwerp is formed, the Captaincy of Golden Burgundy in OTL northern Venezuela Near Caracas. While Brasilea expands 750 sq km southwestward and Neu Charlesopolis Expands 250 sq km southward in OTL Nicaragua. (I made that colony because Von told me I could make more in 1548.) The duke's second child named Anna is born, and the lefevrists begin expanding outside the duchy - mainly in the unorganized Munster. While this, the duke offers the French to buy some land,
    • I remember talking about this, but can't remember the exact conversation, do you have a link to where we did this? Just so I can remember ~Von
    • I didn't find it but I remembered that my colonies were both made in 1510 and I saw it in the archives so my next colony should be made in 1560, and ignore this one of Neu Charlesopolis, OK?Sine dei gloriem (talk) 00:08, December 18, 2012 (UTC)
    • Well, I couldn't find where this Cabo de la Vela where Nouvée Charlesopolis is located, anyway.
  • The Caliphate Province of Circassia builds up its economy as it recovers from the war and destruction brought on by Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas's reign. Muslims are now the clear majority in the province and most hold on to some of the more extreme Muslim ideals; this and the civil unrest causes almost all of the remaining Christians to flee the province and migrating to Europe or Russia.
  • The Caliphate Province of Al-Slaveit works on its economy as it recovers from the war and destruction brought on by Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas's reign. Muslims are now the clear majority in the province as almost all of the Christians had been killed or fled by migrating to Europe or Russia. Some decide to go live in the more liberal provinces like Syria or Egypt, but most are too scared of being harmed by Muslim extremists. The army of ibn Anas, after hearing of his death flee to the coast of Muscovy.
  • The Caliphate Province of Georgia works on its economy as it recovers from the war and destruction brought on by Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas's reign. The Muslims are now the majority in the province but many Christian Georgians still remain. However, they are largely fearful of staying in the Muslim state in case of more extremist Muslims. Several rich Georgians begin organizing a mass exodus to the new world and the establishment of a new Georgian state, free of Muslim rule.
  • The Caliphate Province of West Qoyunlu works on its military as the province leads efforts to re-establish law and order, and the authority of Caliph Muhammad ibn Muhammad.

Some decide to go live in the more liberal provinces like Syria or Egypt, but most are too scared of being harmed by Muslim extremists.
  • Tibet: Five-year-old Sayon Tsu-Heu is, after long debates, "identified" as the Third Dalai Lama. Sayon Tsu-Heu's reasonably close relation to the incumbent Premier, Cheyong Heu, causes some controversy, increased by the fact that the previous (Second) Dalai Lama, Xeu Gyatsen, was also related to a Premier (Thunsen Gyatsen, who was not yet Premier when Xeu was "identified"). Some groups accuse the monasteries involved in the process of corruption. This sequence of events causes many debates, and even some protests. In the meantime, the major focus for Tibet and its vassals is economic buildup, except in the Wacheng exclave, where the navy is built up. The trade connections and roads from Lanna to the other states of the Tibetan alliance are improved and increased in number. New monasteries are built in Lanna, the Shan Sultanate and Kashmir.
  • Ethiopia expands its navy, and expands its empire by 1500 sq km, and its colony in Madagascar by 1000 sq km. Also, Ethiopia prepares to send a military force to occupy the Swahili city-state of Mombasa.
  • Brandenburg continues to build up its military and infrastructure. Neu Berlin expands by 1000 sq km, as 3000 is obviously too much. Meanwhile, the fifty years since the establishment of Neu Berlin will occur in five years' time, so we plan another colony farther south.
  • Luxembourg continues to expand its infrastructure. Louis X continues to campaign in France for some rights.
  • The Caliphate Province of Oman amps up its military and sends many ships to attack General Ranchood's secessionist Bharat Sultanate.

  • Caliph Muhammad leads a massive naval fleet to go retake Deccan and kill General Ranchood and to install the Caliph's authority over India personally. His army lands in Gujarat and he leads his army to join up with the armies already fighting General Ranchood. This huge army now marches against General Ranchood and takes significant land gains.
  • Scandinavia expands its army and navy; they build up their economy and infrastructure, with new roads being built. Nya Sverige celebrates its 50th anniversary. Colonies can now expand by 2000 sq km. Nya Danmark expands 1000 sq km moving across the Snavt River and around Novgorod's colony to prevent any situations. The Saalskap Av Bukten Erik's holdings/trade forts are reorganized into a Crown colony called Eriksmark under the control of the Saalskap Av Bukten Erik's control. Scandinavia organizes its penal settlements on Caribbean islands into a Crown colony, to be named soon. Eriksmark expands by 1000 sq km. With the Incan Empire's independence from Naples, the Queen contacts the Doge of Venice asking when the plan will be executed (secretly). Bjorn Nyborg produces another masterpiece called Den Leende Flicka (the Smiling Girl, Mona Lisa parallel). Britta Klingenberg finally finishes the statue of the late King Erik and unveils it in Stockholm. Standing at 100 feet in the Stockholm Grand Plaza, King Erik's essence towers over his subjects. His presence emanates throughout the country and (much) smaller versions 20 feet tall are ordered from Klingenberg's studio to be placed in Copenhagen, Oslo, Helsinki, and Turku.
  • Nippon-koku expands more into 霊烏路 (Reiuzi) (Kamchatka). The Satomi Clan builds their military up and Satomi Hidefumi continues preparing. The Mononobe and Rokkaku clans continue fighting against the Ashina clan, and both Mononobe and Rokkaku manage to break the stalemate, and begin to advance slowly. Meanwhile, 沖縄國 (Okinawa Kingdom) builds up its military. Also, 幽谷 (Kasodani) expands by 100 km and 東海道 (Tōkaidō) expands by 100 km.
  • Saxony: With peace still reigning in Europe, the Elector sits back, relaxes and enjoys some tournaments. The army, still on peacetime footing, is improved. The harvest is quite good, and the information-gatherers return from Altmark with news on its defenses.
  • Anhalt: The army is improved and heir Ernest-Augustus asks the families of Europe (specifically Bavaria, Scandinavia, Burgundy and Brandenburg) for a wife, as he desperately needs a son.
  • Archbishopric of Magdeburg: The Archbishop is very pleased with his court composer, and commissions many pieces from him. The episcopal army is improved. The treasures of the major Cathedrals are returned to their places, but a contingency plan is in place in case of war.
  • Cyprus expands Nea Lefkosia by 800 sq km and Nea Larnaka by 200 sq km. Princess Eleftheria bears two children, twins, christened Prince Yanni and Princess Stavroula. The Queen grows even frailer.
  • Caliphate Provinces of Candar, Rumelia, Anatolia, and Wallachia: Economic and military buildup continues. The Kappelists are sent money, weapons and many other goods. The four provinces state that all Kappelist nations will be aided by all four Ottoman provinces. Troops and money continue to be sent to India to aid the Caliph's armies.
  • The United Kingdoms of Bavaria and Thuringia: The Royal Family offers Selena Albrect to Scandinavia as a wife, she is beautiful and intelligent. The November 5th plot has taken some time to set up, but it is believed by the Order (name of the shadow group behind Remus and the plot) to be ready next Nov. 5. All members and assassins are ordered to their respective positions in Bavaria, Naples, Karolin, and Savoy. (still secret, please) The King begins a tour of the UK, trying to bolster support for the Reichstag's new tolerancy policies. The King declares his allegiance to Leopold as Emperor of the HRE. Many people within the UK are displeased as the Independence movement begins to boil steadily, and the long suppressed "Cold War" between Kappelists and Catholics reaches its boiling point. The IMG asks Venice for the nature of the closing of Gibraltar, and asks whether it needs to move the West Fleet. The Bavarian Bankgruppe does not expand any this year due to the corporate restructuring, and the addition of the experienced Venetian bankers to help train employees of Europe's largest bank.
    • Scandinavia? Are you sure? From what I've seen lately, who has been asking for a royal marriage lately is Anhalt, not Scandinavia.
    • He's thinking of the Prince of Norway who was 21 around 30 years ago.
    • I don't see any reason to offer a wife to a guy who's already dead.
  • The Caliphal Province of Syria, although somewhat burdened with the new Circassian and other Caucasian Christian refugees, soon solves it by settling them down on Christian nobles' territories; the nobles remain happy, due to they're now having more Christians (although of a different denomination) populations in their territories, and the government soon redirects its money to once again improve its economy by establishing ports in Tyre, Tripoli and Beirut as well as Latakia. Emir Sim'an continues sending messengers to Europe in hopes of gaining information and establish trade.
  • The Caliphal Province of Egypt expands its colony in Sulawesi by 50 sq km, sending several of the Orthodox Christians there; many others stay, especially in the southern parts of Egypt, almost into Nubia.
  • The Caliphal Province of Palestine expands its new colonies in New Mecca by 1000 sq km (Wahe Bari by 400, the River of Hashem by 400 and Bidyt Remenkemi by 200). The Province also improves its economy in order to cooperate with Syria.
  • The Caliphal Province of Hijaz continues planning secession.
  • The Caliphal Province of Yemen's Emir continues losing over to Ibrahim bin Hussein, with him seizing several major cities this year.
  • The Caliphal Province of Hadramaut also loses a lot of its south to Yazid bin Hussein as it battles on the north.
  • Muscovy (That's right, half of Russia is back. Well, technically all of it, I'm posting for Lx too.) expands the economy. The group of rich merchants who began banding together after Daniel's high taxes name themselves the Right Hand, and begin attacking the Muslims in the nation, who have had numerous taxes and the like lifted by Daniel in his tolerance for all policy. Muscovy sets up a colony, opposite the Bonoman, known as Zelta Zeme (its discoverer was a Latvian.) It is to the East of the Bonoman, where Aukso Zeme is to the West. Gold trading becomes much more profitable (and it has been nearly 30 years since Muscovy started exploring, so this is allowed.)
    • Can you stop ignoring our warnings that Muscovy can't make colonies until 1560, at least?
    • *apoplectic fit* *with great restraint* It was established, later, that Muscovy would be allowed to explore by 1525. Rules say I cannot make a colony until 20 years later. Now, that is 1545. Which was eight years ago.
  • Poland expands the navy and army, as well as Aukso Zeme. The policies of the Right Hand begin spreading into Poland, even though the Right hand remains strictly in Muscovy; the group in Poland names itself the Red Eye. It carries out attacks against more Kappelists than Muslims.
  • Novgorod develops the navy, making numerous Ice-Bogatyrs. These forge paths up the north of Siberia. The army is improved too, and the Samoyed lands are annexed by Novgorod (specifically, 1000 km of Samoyed land). The Tsar, Evgeni I, meets with Daniel and develops a concurrent Tolerance for All scheme, attacking the Red Eye and Right Hand, neither of which have penetrated into Novogorod.
    • In case you didn't see, it was established that one can't build up/update its military and expand its main nation at the same time. You are doing both.
    • I see no problem here. I understood it like if both happen, expansion supercedes military buildup in algorithm... and the construction was basically continuing construction of the laid down hull (it's not like shipyards are going to be barren for a year to make room for expansion). And the Tsar is Evgeni I (I changed the post acordingly)...just see the 1532 post...he will die in 1555-1560, and the torch shall be passed on down. BTW... I hope that by tolerance you mean only to all forms of Christianity, and even then because of political reasons concerning keeping the Russian Federation and its resources from crumbling, and Muslims to a certain point because we realise that they are too big a minority to assimilate. Remember, 1500s.
    • Sorry about the Tsar. Didn't see that post. Yes, of course, I meant only Christians, and to a far lesser extent, Muslims. Death to everyone else. And all that.
  • Genoa: The navy is improved, the ships are armed and new ships are manufactured. The people in Corsica start a revolution, and the Genoan professional army is moved to calm down the island. Piombino also sends troops to Corsica. The East Cuban colony continues growing up thanks to support from the colony in Africa (Spinetta) that is also growing. The outpost in East Hispaniola asks help from the other Italian colonies in the New World because it is having a hard time surviving.
  • Milan: The defenses are built up, fortresses and troops are ready to defend the Duchy, building barracks and defensive buildings all around the State, also suppliyng with ammo, weapons and food the different troops in the State. The Duke and the Kappelist leaders in Switzerland decide to start the rebellion next year, with full force. Milanese and German weapons are smuggled to the principal Kappelist forces in the whole Confederacy. A period of relative peace starts because the Kappelists are waiting to attack, the rebels already identified the Catholic troop centers and political heads of Switzerland hoping to take them down in the rebellion. The Duke and many Swiss leaders start a project to improve the roads between Germany (Bavaria) and Italy (Milan).
  • Gallura: The army is move to Milan under the Milanese control.
  • The Manchurians expand their New Manchuria colony by 1000 sq km.

1554

The Adal Sultanate falls into civil disarray.

A large earthquake strikes India, the worst effected areas are in Balochistan and Gujarat provinces in the Caliphate. The earthquake also causes a small tsunami to hit the west coast of India and Oman too.

  • Portugal builds up its military, focusing more on the navy. Meanwhile, Pero Lopes de Sousa's request to a fixing of the borders with São Sebastião reaches Portugal, and is answered by Duke Garcia, as again, King Pedro is absent. Garcia eventually decrees, in behalf of the King, that the border shall be fixed in the Juqueriquerê River, which puts São Sebastião de Juqueriquerê, the administrative center of São Sebastião, on São Vicente's territory. The administrative center is then moved almost immediately to São Sebastião do Rio de Janeiro. Meanwhile, São Sebastião expands 550 sq km inland after this loss of territory. The settlers on São Vicente are sent back to São Sebastião, and another settlement is founded on the other side of the Juqueriquerê river, next to two native villages, Iperoig, and Uwatibi. Meanwhile, Loanda expands 200 sq km, and in Antília, São Tomé expands 500 sq km to the north. While in Brasil, Pará expands 950 sq km, now extending to the Maranhão river on its westernmost border. Meanwhile, Urraca, niece of Garcia, and eldest daughter of King Pedro is given the title of Countess of Guarda, although this title won't be passed to her descendants, which she doesn't have anyway.

  • Brandenburg continues to build up military and infrastructure. Meanwhile Neu Berlin is expanded by 1000 sq km and we begin to select a hand picked group of people to establish our new colony, Neu Pomeran, which will be in the OTL Maine area.
    • Scandinavia and Portugal have been there for a while, we even have already established a border.
    • The northernmost Portuguese colony in the area is OTL Plymouth, which is nowhere near Maine. Not to metion that the nearest Scandinavian colony has yet to cross the OTL New Brunswick border. Brandenburg has plenty of room to grow.
    • The map hasn't updated their holdings in a long time. That colony's southern border is a bit past Portland, Maine.
    • So? I'll go somewhere else in Maine. Actually, hold up for a second here. Scandinavia has four colonies that have existed since 15??. Brandenburg has ONE colony that has existed since 1508. Meanwhile, Scandinavia has these huge colonies that stretch from Point A to Point B, halfway across the region. Whereas, Brandenburg's one colony has been expanding by 1000 sq km 25% of a century now, yet all of Scandinavia's colonies combined are larger than mine. How can I be expected to believe this? Fact of the matter is, I can't, and therefore won't.
    • We don't have four, we have three legal colonies which are in fact larger than that one colony of yours. They've been there for 50 plus years, yours has been there since 1512. Stop taking things so personally, i was just pointing something out before you waste a turn by getting retconned for expanding into others' territory
    • My point exactly. HOW are they larger? Mine has been there since my legal colonization date, 1508. And your legal date was what, in first decade of the century? Same thing, whatever. Point is, you have THREE colonies, I have ONE. My one colony expanding by 1000 should be larger than you splitting 1000 amongst three, but somehow one of yours is still larger than mine. And I didn't establish the colony yet, and you're not there yet.
    • You established it in 1513. Yes I am. End of discussion, bye.
    • OK, just no. That was the single most insolent act I've ever seen in this game, and I don't even know who I'm talking to. Let me be clear. Don't get it twisted. You cannot prove that you are in Portland. Do you even know where Portland is? Looking at the map, you're still in Eastern Maine. And I DID establish it in 1508. How am I not going to know when I did what?
    • Oh wait, I got it wrong. It was 1505. Case in point, open and shut, game.
  • Luxembourg continues to build up its infrastructure. Louis X continues to campaign for the rights of teh Luxembourgish people.
  • The Caliphate Province of Circassia builds up its economy as it recovers from the war and destruction brought on by Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas's reign. Muslims are now the clear majority in the province and most hold on to some of the more extreme Muslim ideals; this and the civil unrest causes almost all of the remaining Christians to flee the province and migrating to Europe or Russia.
  • The Caliphate Province of Al-Slaveit works on its economy as it recovers from the war and destruction brought on by Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas's reign. Muslims are now the clear majority in the province as almost all of the Christians had been killed or fled by migrating to Europe or Russia. Some decide to go live in the more liberal provinces like Syria or Egypt, but most are too scared of being harmed by Muslim extremists. The aarmy of ibn Anas, under the command of his son, Abdurahim, makes the state of Abdurahimliyye, out of the coast in Muscovy. He stages constant border fights with troops in Crimea and Slaveit.
  • The Caliphate Province of Georgia works on its economy as it recovers from the war and destruction brought on by Caliph Sunnah ibn Anas's reign. The Muslims are now the majority in the province but many Christian Georgians still remain. However, they are largely fearful of staying in the Muslim state in case of more extremist Muslims. Several rich Georgians begin organizing a mass exodus to the new world and the establishment of a new Georgian state, free of Muslim rule.
  • The Caliphate Province of West Qoyunlu works on its military as the province leads efforts to re-establish law and order, and the authority of Caliph Muhammad ibn Muhammad.

  • Papal States: Having not been affected in a Holy War yet, the crew from the Papal navy decide to return to the island of Karukera, bringing with them Bibles, crosses, priests, and weapons, in order to protect themselves from native resistance. The Pope gives them his blessing, and the crew sets off and arrives in a matter of weeks. The crew unfortunately meets violent resistance, but priests help secure the coast and begin preaching the One True Religion to the natives. Many begin to build churches and schools to teach the faith. The Pope declares that the island of Karukera (which is renamed the Insulam St. Petri, Latin for the Island of St. Peter) will be the States' first colonial possession in the New World, and may become the base for new missions to the mainland of Antillia. Meanwhile, Catholicism efforts continue as priests claim they have gained groundwork in some villages in Europe, reconverting the heretics to the true religion, though many face persecution at the hands of the Kappelists.

Nya Sverige's Representanhuset moves to abolish Nya Sverige's proprietary extension and to incorporate it into the colony. This angers the Nya Skandinavia (New Scandinavian) company, which claims that the government favors the Saalskap Av Bukten Erik company because it is more prosperous given the fur trade and all. Nonetheless, the Nya Skandinavian company begins to scout other places to operate. The Prince of Finland accepts Bavaria's offer.]

The Order begins movement of pro-Catholic Zealots in hope of bringing the "cleansing" to Bavaria. The Order is hit with a major setback as the Reichstag orders a through inestigation, a Kappelist by the name of Johan Shmidt is spearheading the probe. There is much fear that without the moderate King, a radical, from either side, could assume power. To combat this the Riechstag temporarily seizes control of the government and will choose by vote the next King. Anti-Catholic resentment grows when the probe reveals it was a radical Catholic who killed the King, although his whereabouts are currently unknown. On a positive note, upcoming musician Ludwig Grosse consposes a wonderful classical melody called Die Schon Nacht (The Beautiful Night) and it become a runaway success if Bavaria and her close allies of Milan and Genoa, as well as gaining a substantial following in Switzerland.

The Christian Georgians officially establish the Kingdom of New Georgia in OTL Newfoundland Island. They lead a mass exodus of the Christians to their new homeland. The Island of Tsminda Giorgi (OTL Newfoundland) is quickly settled by the Christian refugees. The New Georgians create settlements on the coast of Bagratsakh (OTL Labrador).

Just a reminder, Scandinavia has a colony in that area. So... Please change it:)

I'm not going to change it. Your colony is in the mainland portion of Nova Scotia, and has plenty of space to expand into New Brunswich and Maine. Let the Georgian Christian refugees have PEI and Cape Breton. This town is big enough for the two of you. "In the area" doesn't mean that you get to kick the Georgians out. New Georgia could be a valuable regional ally if you allow them to stay.

The colony has grown to occupy Nova Scotia and Cape Breton island, the colony has been there for more than 50 years. If they are in PEI then its fine.

Let's have a deal on where the eastern border for New Georgia will lie. How about we roughly split New Brunswick in half and the southeast half goes to Scandinavia and the northwest half goes to New Georgia. You still have plenty of territory east of that line to expand into.

As long as they don't expand into the mainland anymore that is fine. Unless that nation of colonists wants to invoke the wrath of Russia and Scandinavia.

Actually, why don't they settle in Newfoundland? Nobody is there and they can expand throughout the island. Because let's face it all those settlements at once sound rather sketchy...

However, in order to preserve the dignity of the States in a time of political conflict between the Catholics and the heretics, the Pope cannot join the war unless the Pope can find evidence that Naples is somehow aiding the heretics. He sends a letter to the Venetian doge (somewhat secretly) that he will send his priests to investigate the major cities of Naples to detect any major heretic holdings. If this is the case, he will declare war on the nation in order to gain these heretic holdings, liberate them and convert them, ensuring bellum iustum.

1559

The prominent Coptic Christian community in Egypt decides to emulate the Georgians in leaving the Caliphate for the new world. They establish the Kingdom of Nea Gyptios in OTL Eastern Cuba. Syriac Christians establish the Kingdom of New Syria in the OTL Bahamas. Coptic and Syriac Christians living in the Caliphate's colonies leave for their respective sanctuaries to be free of oppressive Islamic rule.

Whereabouts? I own most of the coast of Florida now...
Can you please check the locations where you send these people? Three nations have colonies in Cuba. I think that the Venetian expansion leaves area enough for those kingdoms to be established.

The Kingdom of England shatters after the last King dies childless. The former nation's territory is divided between the new Kingdoms of Northumbria, Wales, Cornwall, East Anglia, Wessex, Kent and Mercia, with the colony on the OTL Falkland islands joining Wessex, while the colony on OTL Senegal joins Mercia, and the colony on the OTL Caribe joins Wales. The English vassals of Calais and Lorraine declare their independence from England, though Calais immediately chooses to become a Burgundian vassal. A lord in Ireland declares the independence of the new Kingdom of Eire, and cements his rule by marrying an Irish noblewoman.

Could someone please post a map of the new England? I'm very interested in "helping" the new nations... It will be on 1560's map. It was just luck that this event happened just before the map. I created this event because I've realized that Gal hasn't posted at all for pretty much the last century. And with no note explaining when he'd be back in the talkpage. It's long past the point of no return.
Still, it's England, man ... Ah, whatever. Better for me! (insert evil laugh here)

Meanwhile, Dinis's daughter Urraca dies, before completing one year of age. Meanwhile, seeing that their allies Venice and Scandinavia are involved on a war with Naples, and seeing that this can be a good opportunity of recovering their former colony of Santa Maria, Portugal declares war on Naples. A detachment of the army is sent to Brasil, and arrives on São Vicente, from then, going to Rio Grande, being commanded by the capitão-donatário of Paraíba do Sul, Pero de Góis. This detachment arrives on Rio Grande later, and eventually get into conflict with a small Neapolitan force that try to capture the Monte Ovídio fortress. The Portuguese detachment inflicts a defeat on this Neapolitan force, and advances on to the nearest Neapolitan city in the area, but captures the city with virtually no fight. After that, the army moves on to the city of Santa Maria, after another detachment being left on the city to avoid any revolt, and another battle is fought there.Due to most of the Napolitan army on the area being concentrated there, the battle is more diffuicult than the previous one. The Portuguese win this battle, but Pero de Góis is mortally wounded, and eventually dies.Cristóvão da Gama, which was sent there along with the original detachment, then becomes the commander, and near the end of the year, he, along with a smaller part of this army, captures the Neapolitan establishment farther south on the coast.

  • Papal States: A priest, very close to the Pope, visits several Neapolitan cities near the Papal border, with several other clergymen. They soon return, and report to His Holiness of the numerous heretic villages that openly spread their beliefs to other neighborhoods without investigation or persecution from the Naples government. One even explains to the Pope what he had witnessed one night during their investigation, that many pure Catholics were being persecuted and forced into the heresy, and when the Catholics rebelled, a violent struggle began and many Catholic houses were burnt to the ground. The Pope becomes saddened that a seemingly pure Catholic nation would allows such injustices to happen to non-heretics, and declares war on the country. He explains to the Church that to declare war on Naples would mean the States would have a larger role in liberating the peoples from the heresy, and avoid the spreading of the heresy through its colonies. Defeating the Neapolitan Kappelist threat would mean that the Catholic governments would have an easier time defeating other Kappelist threats (such as Milan, but this is a secret). Meanwhile, colonialists in St. Peter continue their colonization and conversion efforts, and with the natives not having up-to-date weaponry, there is little revolts. More churches and schools are built, and expensive crops are sent back to the States in order to sell to other European nations and expand their economy.
    • Burgundy: We ask the Papal States to deal with our conflict for land with the French kingdom.

A Chancellor is elected by the name of Herman Shwartz (secretly a Jew but publically Catholic), a very anti-Kappelist leader, who believes strongly in eliminating the opposition. Bavarian Bankgruppe re-establishes banks in the remains of the former state of England. Requests are sent to Scotland to open branches in the Kingdom. The IMG begins to aid the Venetians in closing off Gilbraltar. All aid offered by Bavaria's Catholic allies are accepted. A massive investigation ensues in effort to determine just how could all of this happen. (I may not be on regularly due to the holidays, please keep this in mind. Scandinator or Scraw may post freely on my behalf.)

PMII1560
The English successor states that Brandenburg for their generous assistance in "stabilizing" the already stable former English lands. They, however, reject the possibility of any "Anglo-German Union" as most of the nations value their newly-gained sovreignty They have only just gained independence, and I think they want to stay independant. Don't stick your nose where it isn't wanted.

Khans Mamash Dīn Timurid and Godeng Dīn Timurid of the Timurid Empire start on a new massive military campaign as they seek to re-establish the Timurid Empire to its former glory. Khan Mamash Dīn Timurid leads a huge army to invade the Khanate of Mangystau and Khan Godeng Dīn Timurid sets about creating an even larger army in preparation for the invasion of the Caliphate. Mangystau falls to the Timurid hordes quickly and the Mangystau rump state becomes a vassal to the Timurid empire. Khan Mamash then enlists the help of the remaining military forces of the Khanate of Mangystau to join him in a massive invasion of the Caliphate province of East Qoyunlu from Mangystau's border. Khan Godeng Dīn Timurid then launches an even larger invasion of Afghanistan province. Large swathes of land falls to the Timurid armies quickly.

  • The Mayan Empire expands north, reaching the northern border of Zapotec lands. The oligarchy turns its attention west. Seeing that Zapotec conquest is almost imminent, rulers start to send people north, to Xaman. The fertile land makes it perfect to support a large colony. Many start making the journey north, to make a living there. The Orthodox leaders in the Empire see the settlement as a tool to expand the faith. They urge believers to go to Xaman. The population of Xaman explodes, and it starts rapidly expanding. This year, it expands 500 km south.
  • The Swahili king Nuru Mariuki begins the unification of his people under the leadership of Mombasa. He expands his nation 1000 sq km to the south crushing any resistance to his goal.
  • Italian War PMII
    Venice wins the seige of Naples and announces the end of the Kingdom of Naples and Savoy. Burgundy is given land in Northern Savoy which is majority French (50% of OTL Savoy region) while the remainder becomes the Reublic of Piedmont. Sardinia and Sicily are declared as independent republics under Venice while Malta is directly annexed. The Papal States gain up to Abruzzo while the remainder of Naples is declared as a republic under Venice. Granadians, Bosnians and Serbians celebrate their independence and the new rulers of these three nations ally with Venice and Scandinavia. Limon is annexed by Nuovo Firenze while the other Neapolitian colonies are divided by the coalition with Burgundy gaining OTL Panama, Scandinavia taking the colonies in OTL Argentina, Portugal taking Uruguay, Cyprus taking the larger Savoyard fort in Africa while the Papal States gains the smaller one. Brandenburg and Aragon are offered help with establishing a new colony anywhere in the world with Venice supplying them for 15 years (you get 1000 sq km a year from my colonial expansion after the first five years). The Italian League collapses as the balance of power slips to the Venetian League to which Venice would like the Papal States to join. As a result of the collapse of the Italian League, Piombino falls to Venice. Nuovo Firenze expands by 2000 sq km as they connect with Limon and Nuovo Venexia expands 2000 sq km into Florida. The Venetian Doge expresses his gratitude to the other members of the coalition and offers them each five new ships of the line.
  • Brandenburg continues to build up its military and infrastructure. The King announces that the islands awarded to Aragon belong to the Crown, and in the case that either nation leaves the control of the Crown, the islands go to the nation with the monarch. Meanwhile Neu Berlin expands 2000 sq km (it's finally old enough!) and we throw out all plans for another colony. We should be bordering the Erokee nation by now, and we should also most likely be the largest colony in Northeastern Antillia. We continue to send troops, supplies and money to Wessex, Kent and East Anglia and the government has huge plans developed for an Anglo-Germany, wherein Wessex, Kent and East Anglia will be provinces of our great kingdom. (Attention: could someone tell me the name of the state between Brittany and France?)
    • Again with the Anglo-Germany nonsense. That was absurdly implausible when it first appeared and I'm stopping it now.
      • ​Dude, whoever you are, you need to relax. It's only been one turn since I started, and no one told me the first time that it was implausible. And if they did, I probably didn't see it because I don't check past turns after new turns start.

  • Cyprus thanks Venice and its alliance partners greatly for the new ships and the Savoyard fort, which is rechristened Nea Lemesos. Nea Lefkosia expands by 700 sq km, while Nea Larnaka expands by 100 sq km and Nea Lemesos expands by 200 sq km.
  • Papal States: The Pope thanks and congratulates Venice and the Coalition for liberating Naples from the Kappelist threat, and to help balance the power in Europe and the New World. The Pope gladly accepts the Doge's offer of a Venetian League, which he hopes will be much more successful than the Neapolitan-run Italian League. The land received from the war is thoroughly investigated for any Kappelists, the majority of which are converted. Those who do not wish to be converted are either imprisoned, tortured or killed (especially those who inflict violence on the priests). As well, the Pope agrees with the Burgundian land dispute against France. While the Pope doesn't advise war over islands, he instead proposes a meeting between the nobles to come to an agreement. Meanwhile, Colonists continue to voyage to St. Peter in order to convert the natives, as well as grow crops (especially sugar crops) to be taken back to the Old World. The Pope is pleased with the progress, and soon sends several more crews to explore the newly acquired African colony. Meanwhile, in a SUPER SECRET letter to the Doge, the Pope proposes a future invasion of Milan, in order to cease the perpetual heresies that threaten the two nations in our own peninsula. While the Pope and many of the priests wish to continue a peaceful conversion, he notes that peaceful conversions have ended with violence, and the invasion of Naples has so far liberated thousands of peoples from the heresy. However, the Pope wishes to wait several years until such a war is to begin in order to grow and stabilize the armies and navies that have been damaged in warfare.
    • Burgundy is not in conflict for islands if not for the Area between Burgundy shore provinces and the original capital Dijon and because they promised it. Sine dei gloriem (talk) 00:42, December 24, 2012 (UTC)

Meanwhile, the colony Santa Maria is received after the war, along with the former Savoyard settlement, apparently called Sacramento by the Savoyards themselves, the name which the Portuguese don't bother to change and both parts are incorporated into Brasil, being then separated into the capitanias of Cisplatina and Transplantina, in reference to the Rio da Prata, which both parts border. Meanwhile, King Pedro II dies on the start of the year. He is succeeded by his eldest son, Dinis, which is then crowned "Dinis II, By the Grace of God, King of Portugal and Algarves, of either side of the sea in Africa, Prince of Finland, Lord of Guinea and of Brasil". After assuming, Dinis rearranges the colony, separating Cisplatina and Transplatina from Brasil, and making them a separate colony, called Rio da Prata. The border between Brasil and Rio da Prata is set on an unnamed small bay (near OTL Rocha). Meanwhile, in an attempt to establish the capitania system there, he appoints Gonçalo Ramires de Soutomaior, and Ordonho Vasques de Celanova as capitães-donatários of both capitanias, respectively.

  • Papal States: Anti-heresy efforts continue. The Pope orders many priests to avoid voyaging peacefully, and instead tells them that the Inquisition in place is their best bet to trying to convert the majority of the peoples back to the One True Faith, before a Holy War is to begin. Priests trying to convert in Milan begin leaving the Kappelist-majority nation, in order to not risk death at the hands of the aggressive Kappelists. These priests talk to the Pope and express their outrage of the problems in Milan and their anti-Catholic efforts in the Italian Peninsula, and the Pope assures them God's will will be done. The Pope issues a growth of the army and navies, in both the States and in Provence, in order to prepare for a future Milanese invasion, and estimates the invasion to begin this decade (still a secret.) Meanwhile, colonists in St. Peter and the newly acquired African colony (which was renamed St. John, after John the Baptist) continue their efforts, which continue to go well. The Pope is glad to see the benefits from colonizing in the New World (spread of Catholic faith, economic benefits, etc.) and aims to set his sights elsewhere.
    • The Grand Duke of Luxembourg secretly sends an important letter to the Pope, asking him if he is ready to lead a religious crusade. We have waited too long for this. Join us, and together we can rule Europe as fellow Catholics. (Brandenburg, Luxembourg, Venice, and all other Catholic states will help us in this.) When Louis becomes Emperor of the HRE, he will slowly begin authorizing small-scale secretive wars against Kappelism in invididual states until they all join up into one massive war that will take Kappelism by surprise and stomp them down.
    • Papal Diplomacy: The Pope replies to the Grand Duke in a secret letter, agreeing that the Holy War has been delayed for far too long. He proposes beginning a new Catholic League to organize the nations who will be fighting for the One True Faith. He ensures the Grand Duke that God's will shall be illuminated when the heresy is wiped off the face of the Earth.

  • In Muscovy, Daniel III dies after a Red Hand cell in Ivangrad kills him, sparking a new series of massive crackdowns. Even the merest suggestion of sympathy with the Red Hand allows for detainment, and various rights are suspended throughout the nation. As Daniel died heirless, his cousin, Nicholas, a Romanov, becomes Grand Duke. He nominates Novgorod's new Grand Prince as Tsar, as Poland is undergoing major difficulties in the government. He develops the army and navy. In addition, he establishes a partial republic, under him; he has overall power, but the parliament (established by the Treaty of Minsk) elects a tyasatsky, who serves as a 'second in command'.
  • In Poland, the crackdowns have caused a partial rebellion, between the Catholic majority, the Orthodox minorities, the Kappelist minorities, and the Muslim minorities, all fighting each other. As a result, martial law is declared, and Brandenburgish troops crossing Poland to Hungary are allowed to continue despite minor misgivings from the people. The military and navy are prepped to drive out the Red Hand, which has now absorbed all other such agencies.

    Offer to Burgundy

    Offered land to Burgundy.

    Auvergne ule has finally setlled throughout France, as life returns to normal in the Catholic state. With King Gauss' passing, King Louis II of France (No relation to the OTL Louis of France) is reminded of France's promise to Burgundy. Land, as promised, will be given to connect Burgundy with its Colonies to the North. However, on the condition that this is not used to threaten the ethnic Dutch people of the Colonies, nor is it used against any potential allies of France, as that could break our relations.
    • Burgundy D: After quite a while, we are thrilled that France is now stable and willing to give the land they promised, and we agree to your generous offer, and state that we wouldn't break the conditions, as despite once being allies of the English, we were never planning on representing a threat toward you, we thank our gift
    • You mean Louis XII, ain't it? after all, Louis II was a Carolingian. And again, the northern part of Burgundy isn't a colony. This would be as accurate as saying that England was a Norman colony in the 12th century, or that Tuscany was an Austrian colony on the 19th.

  • However, there are still controversies with regards to his connection/relationship to Cheyong Heu, the Premier of Tibet. Cheyong Heu attempts to pass education reforms, but the process is stalled. Economic buildup is the main focus of Tibet and its vassals, except for the Wacheng exclave, where the navy is built up. Trade routes in the Myanmar states (Shan Sultanate, Ava, Lanna) are improved, and new monasteries are built in the Shan Sultanate, Ava and Lanna, as well as in northern Tibet.
  • The Emirate of Granada sends diplomats to Burgundy, Venice, and Scandinavia to ask for alliances. Work is done on the navy and plans are made for an exploration to Antillia.

That cannot happen.) The King expands wartime preparedness levels. Kappelists begin plans to force the nation to side with the Kappelist League in secret. (I do not know what happened whilst Scraw was in charge, who is my King? Why is the IMG supposedly distancing itself, which it can't, and what bloody succession?) at this moment I declare that i will resume leadership, as i am not pleased with what I am seeing. Scraw, message me to explain what is happening please.

    • The Mayan Empire secretly agrees.
  • Gallura: the army is improved, many Kappelist missionaries go to most Southwest Germany to preach the Kappelist doctrine, many more reach Savoy and England secretly to inspire Kappelist movements, both nations are fertile soil to the Kappelist preachers thanks to the social collapse, war, famine, forceing influence and migration.

1566-kappelist-league-state

The new independent league of Kappelist states (highlighted in red)

The Duke of Munster tried of the aggressive invasion of his Duchy by Burgundy and infuriated at the lack of support from the rest of the Holy Roman Empire (minus the Kappelist league's secret war supplies) to stop Munster being invaded by fellow Holy Roman Empire state Burgundy, sees the Duke of Munster declare the Duchy of Munster to be independent and separate of the Holy Roman Empire. Other members of the Kappelist league (Brunswick, Lauenburg, Hesse-Wolfenbuttel, Paderborn and Breman) then follow suit and soon the independent Kappelist League states begin sponsoring Kappelist revolutions across the HRE and appealing for the other Kappelist League states still in the HRE (Nassau, Strassburg, Altmark, Mecklenburg, Milan, Switzerland, Tyrolia and the United Kingdoms of Bavaria and Thuringia) to succeed from the Holy Roman Empire and to stop the growing power of the Catholic league.
@ Whoever wrote this: Would you mind retconning this? We were planning a civil war.
Well here's a civil war now, its not like you could control these NPC states anyway.
@ The other HRE Catholics: I told you this was going to happen!
you told us something we knew Sine dei gloriem (talk) 21:24, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
Say what?
it was quite obvious that the mods were going to do this, that doesn't mean we wanted to happen and or to speed it up Sine dei gloriem (talk) 21:27, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, and I told you we could slow down the process and emerge victorious and yet you still refused to let us do this.
Well it was not just me, most wanted to keep peace, even if the secular states aren't possible, and even so we are going to end up as victorious because in the end is obvious there are going to attack us, and we will defeat them Sine dei gloriem (talk) 21:37, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
Please learn to use sentences. We're screwed now anyway.
Well, the HRE, I believe, is royally screwed because of the civil war AND the Caliphate invasion of Byzantium. On a different note, Sine USE SENTENCES please. Several people have asked you.
Just you two, that's not several, but OK you are right, Sorry, I sometimes forget English syntax, and in another more important matter, what are we going to do for the HRE civil war ? Sine dei gloriem (talk) 23:18, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
Von, I think it is quite strange that your invasion of Greece coincides with this event...
Yeah, it just looks too odd that a mod weakens his enemy at the same moment he strikes them Sine dei gloriem (talk) 23:41, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
They are not friends of the Caliphate. Alliances between the Caliphate and Kappelists will not be allowed. These are NPC states who you couldn't use to help you in any wars anyway because you don't control them. The Caliphate looses no enemies and you loose no allies which would have helped you in war. It's just funny that you alone caused us to be dividing our forces to two fronts...not haha funny, just "isn't that interesting" funny.

The Christian expatriate kingdoms continue expanding their territory. However, most of that expansion is due to internal factors rather than immigrants from the Caliphate, as the immigration has slowed to a trickle of religious fanatics who are mostly settled on the fringes to isolate them.

  • Portugal continues preparing its military. Meanwhile, in Antília, São Tomé expands 750 sq km northwest, and 250 east. Meanwhile, in Loanda, a fort is founded farther south on the coast, in a region called Benguela by the natives.Loanda itself expands 350 sq km along the coast.

  • Nippon-koku expands more into 霊烏路 (Reiuzi) (Kamchatka). The Satomi Clan builds their military up and Satomi Hidefumi also offers the Yamana and Kuroda clans to join him in exchange for letting them still rule their own area; Yamana clan will think about it and give an answer next year while the Kuroda clan declines for now. Meanwhile the Rokkaku and Mononobe clans continue their war against the Ashina clan. In the seventh month, the Honda clan declares war against the Akechi clan, and soon the Imagawa clan joins in the war to help the Akechi. Meanwhile, 沖縄國 (Okinawa Kingdom) builds up its military. Also, 幽谷 (Kasodani) expands by 400 km and 東海道 (Tōkaidō) expands by 400 km.
  • The Caliphate Province of Oman amps up its economy and the colony of Comchellak expands 500 sq km into Madagascar. Many of the Ethiopians in Comchellak are killed and their property taken by Muslim settlers.

  • Caliph Muhammad marches his massive new army to Istanbul which upon arriving he declares himself to Mahdi, showing people that many of the signs of the Qur'an and Haddiths have been fulfilled and that he is Mahdi. Some people believe these claims of divinity and others don't, but they all appropriate the great military ability of the Caliph Muhammad al-Mahdi. The new Mahdi ruler marches his huge army across Thrace declaring war on the Byzantine empire and announces the war will be won with little effort as Allah entrusts victory to the Mahdi to unite the world, spread the glory of Islam and to prepare the world for the attack of the Masih ad-Dajjal. The Mahdi also demands Ethiopia and Yemen put more effort into bring Adal into the Caliphate.
  • Apache: More and more Apachean people begin to settle in farming villages and now 33% of the Apache population is now settled and the number increases. The economy improves because of the new settlements.
  • Cyprus expands Nea Lefkosia by 400 sq km, Nea Larnaka by 400 sq km and Nea Lemesos by 200 sq km.
  • The Imperial Government declares a total war on the seccessionist Kappelist League. We ask the Dutch and the Northern Germans to focus on the Kappelism while Southern Germans (Austria, etc) and Italians are asked to attack in the Byzantine regions. We also ask His Holiness the Pope for all help possible to preserve the one true faith, and we also call on the fellow members of the Catholic League. (BRING IT ON!)
  • Milan: Expands the military and begins to send secret and massive aid to the newly independent Kappelist nations. The Sforza's begin plans to declare independence.(SECRET)
  • Genoa: Infrastructure expands. The military's readiness alert level is raised in fear of potential invasions.
  • The United Kingdoms of Bavaria and Thuringia: King Maximillian begins orders to raise the military's preparedness, Catholic are being expelled from the Northern reaches of Thuringia. The Reichstag begins to gain traction on a vote to secede from the Empire and to openly declare a Kappelist state. These plans remain secret for the most part, as King Maximillian plans to secede when the HRE's power is limited by the impending Civil War. In accordance with Imperial law, the military is ordered to Austria and then to Byzantium, though order to only supply aux support due to the decret deals with the Caliphate and King Max's ultimate plan.(Secret: King Maximillian asks the pro European Caliphate states of the Ottoman for support{only if pluasible, if not by all means scratch post} ONLY A MOD!!) A Secret diplomatic entourage arrives in Milan with hopes of being able to evacuate key members of Bavarian parliament and Royal Family to Maya with Milanese members. The King decides to stay in Bavaria.
    • A full on alliance won't happen, plus Catholic states which are hostile to us both wouldn't allow this to happen. Not to mention the Mahdi thinks he is divine so he thinks the Kappelists below him. However, he would agree to mutual agreements (e.g. dividing nations between us both) but I wouldn't trust him if I were you.
  • The Mayan Empire continues expanding north. The Zapotec city-states are nearly gone. Xaman expands south by 1000 km. The oligarchy decides that they will start expanding south as well, which will be far easier, considering the territory is unoccupied. The Empire requests that advanced naval and weapons technologies from its new ally, Brandenburg, to be paid for in gold by the Empire.
    • The colonial government in Neu Berlin, helmed by Otto von Hohenzollern, forwards the request to the homeland, upon which his nephew, Ludwig II of Brandenburg, informs him that war is afoot in Europe, and that the Mayans will have their request granted if they give supplies to help sustain the loyalist colonies in the New World. (Namely Neu Berlin and the Venetian colonies.)
    • and Burgundian colonies as well (we are loyalist) Sine dei gloriem (talk) 00:13, December 30, 2012 (UTC)
    • The Mayan Empire agrees.
  • Brandenburg builds up its military and economy. We send men marching across Mecklenburg to the Kappelist League area. We ask Scandinavia to help us invade, and we ask the Russian Federation to aid in the defense of their allies. Meanwhile Ludwig's grandson, Wilhelm, heir to the throne through primogeniture, marries the sole heiress of the leadership of the House of Habsburg. When Wilhelm becomes the prince elector of Brandenburg, the House of Hohenzollern-Habsburg will form.
    • Unless you are on the defensive, Novgorod (and Russia I persume) cannot condone religious war on Kappelists(cough...Principaltiy of Baltica...cough) (However, due to my elongated absence I am a bit ignorant on world affairs for the moment...so I do not know if you or they are attacking, or some combination of the both. I can bend to you or their favor). If, however, the Brandenburgians do manage to prove that they are on the defensive, you shall receive aid in the form of cheaper than usual Russian firearms.
    • Well, they set up revolutions in other places. What does that mean to you?
  • Scandinavia builds up its military; they expand their economy and infrastructure. King Alfonse I of Scandinavia is not surprised at the break out of war in the HRE. However, due to our participation in two successive wars (and the strain it puts on a country), Scandinavia will not become involved unless a Kappelist state invades Slesvig (the part of Denmark bordering the Kappelist league. Nya Danmark expands 3000 sq km. Scandinavia does, however, send supplies to both Brandenburg and Byzantium to eliminate the heretic threat in both areas.
  • Venice expands its military. In accordance with HRE law, Venice and its Italian League vassals declare war on Milan.(I'm not sure about this one, Scan didn't exactly leave instructions for this kind of event). Military aid is sent to Byzantium.
    • HRE law does not say to invade Milan.
    • ^He's right. Though, the Doge did agree to a proposal made by the Pope to invade Milan in order to remove the Kappelist threat, and being attacked by Kappelist revolutionaries is cause for an invasion. ChrisL123 (talk)
  • Novgorod produces more Snaphaunce rifles and muskets. Meanwhile, the Grand Prince dies of Smallpox by the end of the year. New Elections are held throughout the nation, and The Next Prince is none other than Nicolas Boyasin. He is confirmed by the other veches. Dimitri Boyasin dies at a ripe old age of 85, and a state funeral is ordered by his grandson, who was elected preferable to his father due to his age of 41 as opposed to 62. Ivan Dimitrich Boyasin is placed as the Prince of Pskov. Nicolas continues his predecessor's hunt for the Red Hand, and refuses aid in an invasion of Kappelist territory for religious reasons (mostly to retain the political stability of the Russian Federation, he needs the resources). Meanwhile, the colonial policy has expanded Novorossiya by 1000 sq km on the coast north. As a precaution, and due to the increasingly militant nature of the current Caliph, Novgorod's increases its military presence near Caliphal borders, officially as precautionary measures should Siberian revolts arise, but in reality, to protect against the more aggressive Caliphate should it invade. Meanwhile, Grand Prince Nicolas institutes the Orthodox Rebate, where the prices for firearms exported to Orthodox nations is slashed by 50% (officially to encourage the expanding of markets between Orthodox nations, unofficially to aid Byzantium indirectly against the coming invasions by buying Russian firearms, but there is a catch, Byzantium has to purchase Russian firearms, which means agreeing to our aid, and only then can they get the +2 for Novgorodian supplies in the algorithm...BTW, this also applies to all Orthodox nations during wars)

  • The Manchurians expand their New Manchuria and New Harbin colonies by 500 sq km each.
  • Northumbria: A pamphlet by a man named Henry Atford, simply titled Anglia, becomes extremely popular among many Northumbrians. It states that England should be united in some way, shape, or form, or it may fall under foreign influences. The pamphlet especially points fingers at Kappelism, and imperialist Europeans. A strong English nationalist feeling sweeps Northumbria, and even parts of Merica as the pamphlet's popularity spreads. The military continues expanding. A ship from New York returns to Northumbria filled with ivory. King Sutton looks to sell ivory to other countries, and the previously sleepy New York colony is expanded by 750 sq km. King Sutton looks for a wife, and asks European nations if they can provide a person of noble birth.
    • After the demise of Mercia, Portugal, again trying to reestabilsh relations with other English kingdom, offers Urraca, one of the daughters of Duke Garcia of Coimbra and Guimarães.
  • Papal States: The Pope hears word of a declaration of war on the Kappelists, and tells his people the time has come to glorify God's true word. He declares war on the states, and agrees to send aid to the Catholic League, sending troops to aid Venice in attacking Milan. He believes that if Milan is defeated swiftly, conversions may begin, and the Catholics will be able to use Milan as a gateway to the rest of the heretic states. The Pope also, after feeling reluctant to do so, begins to send aid to the fellow Catholic nation of Byzantine, and agrees that Europe cannot stand by and let another European nation fall into the hands of the Muslims. Colonial efforts are slowed, though the profits from the colonies are put toward the war.
  • The Caliphal Province of Ethiopia, following the Mahdi's orders, invades Adal in order to support the Mahdi. Aid is also given to Nubia in its invasion of Funj.
  • The Caliphal Province of Yemen also invades Adal under the orders of the Mahdi, although leadership is given to the negus in Ethiopia.
  • The Caliphal Province of Nubia, frantic with the arrival of the Mahdi, invades the kingdom of the Funj.
  • The Caliphal Province of Egypt sends aid both to the invasions of the Funj and Byzantium, as well as Adal. Plans for their own localised invasions also begin. New Alexandria is flooded with troops as plans to spread the Caliphate to those regions begin.

  • The Caliphal Province of the Hadramaut helps the invasion of the Adalese. Plans for invasions of their own begin.
  • The Caliphal Province of Syria's Hashemite ruling family, afraid of the extremism rising up in the Caliphate and of their own cousin, who might try to complete his power, flees to New Mecca's least populated (and militarised) area, the River of Hashem. The regent left in Syria masses the troops and the navy in Latakia, secretly planning an invasion of Cyprus.
  • Rajputana expands the city of Sanapana and the military is improved. Sikhs continue to grow in number and influence.

The anarcadier expands 250 sq km. The event in Munster are repudiated by many, as most of the Council in Burgundy votes on attacking the Kappelist in Munster, Brandenburg and Scandinavia are asked to help in dealing the possible conflict in the eastern border of the kingdom.

1567

Mecklenburg is greatly annoyed at Brandenburg marching troops across its lands to attack the Kappelists. In response Mecklenburg's military launches a series of ambushes against the Brandenburg troops marching across Mecklenburg and they are either killed or taken prisoner. Tired of being pushed around by Brandenburg, Mecklenburg leaves the HRE and joins the Kappelist league. Neighbouring Atlmark also follows suit and leaves the HRE for the Kappelist league.

How the hell can they be annoyed? They didn't leave the HRE, ergo, everyone thought they were still loyalist. It's their own fault.
Because your violating their sovereignty, that being merely the straw which broke the camel's back.

We feel the Emperor did not answer the needs of one of the Empire's largest states, in as such, we formally dissolve all ties to the corrupt behemoth that is the Holy Roman Empire."

  • The Mayan Empire expands south into the isthmus there. Xaman expands south by 1000 km. Orthodoxy continues to grow in the Empire.
  • Papal States: Despite his seemingly good health, the Pope passes away. Pope Anacletus II, born in Provence, is declared Pope. He continues the War on Kappelists in order to defeat the heresy, as Papal troops continue to invade Milan, and some are sent farther north into the German lands to help the Catholic League. Many priests are also sent into the Kappelist states, in order to try to peacefully convert villages to restore their faith, and even to cause uprisings within the countries. The Pope is deterred that Byzantine lost the Madhi war, but is glad the land hasn't been annexed to the Caliphate. Colonialism continues to be slowed, but the shipments brought in from the nation continues to benefit the economy.
    • But Byzantium was annexed into the Caliphate?
    • ...No. According to Yank (refer to the Algorithm), "the Caliphate gets 20% of Byzantium." ChrisL123 (talk)
    • Never mind, you're right, it must have been changed. ChrisL123 (talk)
  • Brandenburg continues to fight its wars. The Mecklen/Altmarkish War ends, and we begin to pull out of Mecklenburg, although we continue to crisscross Mecklenburg and razing every Kappelist town along the route. Ludwig II dies in Berlin after returning from a skirmish on the border with Mecklenburg. His son, Wilhelm, becomes Wilhelm III. He continues the wars his father was involved in. Mecklenburgish forces commit an act of atrocity and attack a border village in Scandinavia.

How the nations of Indonesia now look

After many years of internal conflict, Majapahit and its empire collapses. The vassals fight as regional leaders grow in size and power. As the year ends the war ends and the empire of Majapahit is divided between several new nations.
  • Nippon-koku expands more into 霊烏路 (Reiuzi) (Kamchatka). The Satomi Clan builds their military up and Satomi Hidefumi continues planning again.

  • The Caliphate Province of Oman amps up its economy sending many troops to Europe to help in the war. The colony of Comchellak expands 500 sq km into Madagascar. As Oman's economy continues to grow, the province becomes one of the wealthiest in the Caliphate yet with loads of trade, but the people complain of lack of Barakah and a more religious following of the claims that the Caliph is the Mahdi begin to gain huge popularity.
  • The Caliphate Province of Nejd builds up its economy sending lots of aid to the armies in Europe. Rumours of beasts attacking people in the desert begin to circulate as people speculate that it is the Dabbat al-ard and the populace's believe that Caliph Muhammad is the real Mahdi begins to gain great popularity.
  • The Caliphate Province of Shaybah builds up its military to send lots of aid to the European battle fronts and to attack European ships in the Indian Ocean disrupting nearly all European trade routes in the region.
  • The Caliphate Province of Afghanistan builds up its economy to help fuel the Mahdi's war effort. This year's harvest is quite poor regardless of the abundant rain.
  • The Caliphate Province of Balochistan builds up its economy to help fuel the Mahdi's war effort. This year's harvest is quite poor regardless of the abundant rain.
  • The Caliphate Province of Koli builds up its economy to help fuel the Mahdi's war effort. Koli's religious leaders annoyed that respect is being given according to wealth rather than faith, a big religious push begins in the province to accept the Caliph Mahdi's new Islamic teachings.
  • The Caliphate Province of Gujarat builds up its economy to help fuel the Mahdi's war effort. They look northward to infidel Rajaputana and begin planning an invasion to convert the heathen state and annex it into the Caliphate.
  • The Caliphate Province of Deccan builds up its economy to help fuel the Mahdi's war effort. Troops begin to be built up as word comes from the Mahdi demanding more expansion as Deccan looks to convince Bengal to join the Caliphate.
  • Mahdi Muhammad armies continue to attack the Russian states as Caliphate forces delve even deeper into Russia. The Mahdi reaches Belarus as the year ends and his armies take Minsk, then proclaiming Russia a Muslim nation. Novogrod is split into three equal parts, West Novogrod, East Novogrod and Central Novogrod. Many thousands of forced conversion occur, and some recent converts terrorise the remaining Christian majority. A convert army is set up in the couurt of each of the conquered countries to keep the Islamicity in government.

The fleet makes friends locals and makes arrangements to stay there. Mataram claims to be a new, young nation, and ask the fleet to help it to become powerful and to invade other states. The fleet's chief, Niel Kahnzeller, agrees, in exchange for relations with Brandenburg. Neu Berlin expands 1500 sq km.
  • Portugal continues preparing its military. Meanwhile, in Antília, São Tomé expands 900 sq km northwest. Meanwhile, in Loanda, the Benguela fort, now used for trade, 's reach, expands 200 sq km.

  • Scandinavia builds up its military; they expand their economy and infrastructure. Nya Danmark expands 3000 sq km.
  • Venice expands its military. The attack on Milan continues (algorithm coming). Venice accommodates itself as the interim capital of the HRE and the armed forces are prepped for a land invasion of Bavaria. The Straits of Gibraltar are closed to Caliphate ships and any ships leaving for the expatriate kingdoms. The waters are patrolled by the professional navies of Venice and Scandinavia.
    • No need to make an algorithm, we're combining the algorithms into one. Would you like to be a leader? The Papal States could switch for Venice. Actually, now that I think about it, perhaps we should divide the algorithm into two, the Italian Theatre and the German Theatre. Once you start it, I'll fix the German one. ChrisL123 (talk) 02:31, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
    • Why would Venice, a Christian nation, prevent fellow Christians from leaving the Calpihate?
    • I think that we should do two algorithms and then add the end totals. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Fegelein! Fegelein! Fegelein! 02:35, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
  • OK I think there seriously needs to be some sort of penalty for the Caliphate. I mean annexing Russia, Adal, Morocco, and Byzantium? That is simply ridiculous. Moreover, it began when a mod playing within the Caliphate sparked the HRE civil war which is suspicious to say the least.
  • I agree, the have been in many wars and the fact that it all started by weakening their enemy doesn't really fit Sine dei gloriem (talk) 02:17, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
  • The Caliphate has gotten far too large, they have to collapse in the next decade. LurkerLordB (Talk) 02:48, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
  • Yes!!! :D IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Fegelein! Fegelein! Fegelein! 02:50, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
  • We're coming to it ourselves, no one pays heed to us when we say we ARE going to fall apart. However, just a small bit more than a decade to correlate with our plans.
  • Before you start using us as the blame and root of all evil, we are bloody breaking up within two decades, which is why we're invading the world in the first place. If you paid attention to anything we've written, after the Mahdi phase everything will collapse down on itself. And you yourself have said that you were planning a civil war; the fact that Von actually started it instead of you conveniently waiting for the Caliphate to get weaker to start it is something else entirely. Fed (talk) 03:12, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
  • I think that a mod event should cause them to collapse soon, no matter what their "plans' are. I mean, Von basically threw the HRE into civil war when they were planning it anyway. To be fair, it should also happen to the Caliphate. And it has been said before that it is suspicious that the Mahdi's conquest coincide with the HRE civil war.
  • You were 'planning' it all right. You don't even have a set date, we do. We know exactly when the Mahdiate is collapsing. Moreover, you should have had a civil war long ago, and it was necessry that it happen as soon as possible. Whatever the case, this belongs on the talk page.
  • We had a date. The problem was that some dips didn't vote for the right Emperor. We would have gone through this and finished a decade ago.
  • Burgundy: The military continues spreading through the Kappelist League territory along with the other armies, and Charles of 17 years is offered for a royal marriage between the nations, while Anna begins to search for a possible royal marriage as well,colonies expand Neu Antwerp 750 sq km, Venezuela 500 sq km, Antilia expands 750 sq km, Argentium 500 sq km, Brasilea 750 sq km, Nouvelle Dijon expands 250 sq km and Nouveau Charlesopolis 250 sq km, the Anarcadier expands 250 sq km.
  • Tibet: At the Wacheng exclave, the navy is built up. Missions to Sumatra are also organised, for various reasons. In Tibet, military development is the main focus, while Tibet's vassals (except the Wacheng exclave) focus on economic develop. Routes to Lanna, as well as routes through the Himalayas, are improved. Sayon Tsu-Heu, the Third Dalai Lama, now twenty-two, leaves Lhasa dissatisfied with his treatment, and travels to Kashmir. Plans for a new election are made. New monasteries are built in Kashmir, the Wacheng exclave, and central Tibet.
  • The Manchurians expand their New Manchuria and New Harbin colonies by 500 sq km each.
  • The United Kingdoms of Bavaria and Thuringia declare they will fight until every last man, woman and child are free from Imperial rule, or dead. The military fights on valiently against the Imperial aggressors. Several generals, however, begin to see the preverbial writing on the wall. The King is taken by a musket shot to the heart while defending the nation. The Reichstag convenves an emergency council and ask General Rudolf Heinmann to be interrum Chancellor. He immediently begins to fortify Munchen proper, and begins to battle feircly. Every person in the nation is told to fight, with anything they have, to stop the aggressors. King Max's death is revered for his courage in times of national trial. A public mass is held at his funeral, the sound of artillery not far of in the distance.
  • Northumbria finishes their ship to go explore Antillia, and tells the Papal States that they will help fight the war on Kappelism once they finish the war with Mercia.
  • Caliphate Provinces of Rumelia, Candar, Anatolia, and Wallachia: Military buildup continues while money and wepaons are secrelty smuggled into Bavaria/Thuringia.
    • I already posted on your behalf, Dean, because your inactivity over the past decade or so was causing our Caliphate some great problems. That said, please look at my posts of your provinces and I request you also do them to a similar level of detail in future. Plus for the last time, the Caliphate will never help the Kappelists! We think of them as a heathen lesser people and we have a massive war on the go, we would never send them money and weapons! ~Von.
  • Papal States: The Pope continues to fight the Kappelist regimes, and is proud to announce that the Catholic nations are gaining headway in the war. He plans to end the war in the next few years, in order to restore the Catholic faith to the Kappelist League states. He thanks and congratulates the Catholic League members fighting to preserve God's word, and assures them that the souls of their citizens lost in battle will surely be blessed in Heaven. Meanwhile, colonial efforts begin to pick up, as the settlements continue to grow and more and more citizens are entering the lands. Less violent disputes are happening within the colonies, and much of the native populations are moving in the light of Christ. The Pope is also shocked at the recent expansion of the Caliphate, and hopes that the non-Muslim populations living in the Caliphate rise up against the "oppression of the heresy of the south."
  • The Mayan Empire continues to expand into the isthmus in the south. Xaman expands south by 1000 km. Orthodoxy continues to grow throughout the Empire.
