The Ming Dynasty still rules over the vast lands of China. On the other side of the world, the Hundred Years War continues between England and France. Europe is still stuck in the old ways of feudalism and chivalry while the notions of a New World are considered figments of imagination.

We welcome you to the long awaited fourth expansion of that immortal series. Welcome to Principia Moderni IV! Starting in 1400 AD, this is the dawn of the modern world and the tail end of the Middle Ages. The Renaissance is just kicking off in Europe, while the nations in the western side of the continent are locked in the last gasp of the Hundred Years War. The Muslim world is still reeling from the invasions of Turks and Mongols, with the Caliphate resting in the collapsing Mamluk Egypt and the Ottomans on the rise in Anatolia. Make it count.

The first game was the most successful on the wiki, leading all the way to the modern day with mostly plausible posts and little controversy. The second game reached almost to the modern day, but failed due to a plethora of ASB events and moderator bias. The third game was much more worthy of the first, almost running into implausibility but climbing back into a shining glory by the end. Riding on the latest reforms of map games since the end of PMIII, this is the most logical next step in that evolution. Remember above all other rules — have fun.

All users currently on the wiki may play unless otherwise noted.

Banned Users

A ban from plausibility strikes lasts thirty days, after which the third strike is repealed and the banned player is unbanned. However, the newly unbanned player rejoins the game with two strikes, as a form of probation.

  • Bear - 1648

Banned temporarily

  • Dev - 1682 (60 days)

Plausibility Strikes

Three strikes and you're out! Each strike resets after 30 years of the most recent strike.

  • Scar - I (1629)

Moderator Strikes

These are strikes for moderators and how they moderate. The same three strikes rules apply. If a moderator is banned from moderating, however, they can still play as their nation. Mod strikes can be delivered in one of three ways:

  1. If a sufficient number of players (more than half of all players voting) vote to give a moderator a strike.
  2. If I, Scraw, give them a strike.
  3. If a majority of all mods (ie more than half of the total number of mods, excluding that moderator) vote to give a moderator a strike.

Moderators can be given strikes for the following reasons:

  1. Exhibiting bias that would benefit the nation they are playing.
  2. Exhibiting bias that would negatively affect a player they have a personal dispute with.
  3. Making a ruling that contradicts a proven fact from OTL or an established fact from earlier in the game.
  4. Overruling a decision of a majority of moderators.

The Game

1680

Mzerka's expanding so quickly, it will need an algo this time.

Tazdea is fascinated with Iberia's ability to write stuff, so he starts creating symbols for the Dene syllables in order to independently create an alphabet. 

A fire in Phnom Penh is blamed on Makanis by the radical Buddhists of Cambodia, who see the God King in Laos as a threat to their way of life. 

The war in the Anangu states settles down, and the resulting political situation puts all the states within OTL South Australia in a dynastic union. The prince of the Ngerrindjeri bakanate, named Djalu, is groomed for his new power while being betroathed to the princess of Nukunu. 

Aryavarta erupts into civil war due to the radical influences of Chandra Bose and his followers, particularly among the supporters of Shaivism and Vaishnavism. To the end of the year, many lines are drawn on the nation over ethnic and cultural differneces. 

  • Rashidun Caliphate: Economy and military improve. The Jaffarid Sultanate work to advance the economy and modernize the military, keeping it up to the level of Europe. After finishing the Conference of Beyrut, and selling off the various colonies of the nation, the Caliphate turns its attention inward to clean out the corruption and embezzlement within the government. Caliph Qasim is dead, but a much younger and inexperienced Caliph is put on the throne under the influence of the Jaffarids. Support is given towards Morocco's futher power and autonomy, and support is also given to Zayiyr's concept of a Muslim empire in Africa. A great storehouse in Damascus is used to temproarily keep the thousands and thousands of pounds of stuff collected from Beyrut, which ultimately was sold off for several billion Filoos, not counting the works the Caliph decided to keep for his personal use. The Ulema sends agents desguised as Turkish slaves to monitor the situation in Belka, before deciding whether to get involved in the situation. In the Levant, the barbary pirates make their last stand at the Sidon Sea Castle where Pope Cornelius is kept prisoner. The agents of the Ulema, <led by Al-Ramee and Al-Ankabut, arrive at the castle almost simultaneous to the Saxons, with strict orders that if the Pope is close to escaping, he should be assassinated. The members of the Avengers do their best to stave off the Saxon attackers for quite some time, utilzing every skill and trick of the castle to head off a few hundred. Ultimately, Ankabut's position was overun by the christian forces, so to escape she lept out the window straight to the water below. Meanwhile, those keeping watch over the pope were overwealmed by Italian forces who breached the defenses by a secret entrance. Seeing the Pope escaping, Al-Ramee's arrow was poised to do the deed, but his conscience ultimately stayed his hand. After the remaining forces escaped the battle when the Christians with the Pope departed, Al-Ramee began to mourn his secret lover Al-Ankabut. Just at that moment, she had emerged unscathed from the waters she plundged into, and they were reunited. Meanwhile, Pope Gabriel VII expressed his dissapointment, being that he wished to have met the Roman Pope while he was staying in the Middle East. Sultan Umar Jafar dies.
  • Biarchy of Crete | Republic of Crete: Last year (1679), talks of replacing the Biarchy were stirred up, and now, in the Year 1680, we officially replace the Biarchy with a Federal Republic, ending the debate between government officials. However, The Cretan people continue to bicker about the government, with some saying their needs are not met. Meanwhile, a mysterious explosion occurs in Heraklion. Agriculture continues to evolve on our small island. Fishing emerges as a great contributor to our economy, and we will continue to promote the business. A strange way of writing words, apparently called Futhork, is introduced to the island. The people become very interested in this system, wondering why it is so strange compared to the way the Cretans Write. Work In Progress...
  • Lan Xang: The God King presents evidence against the radical buddhist's slander of his faith. He shows that most Cambodian Makanists live in the North, and very few live in Phnom Penh, so the likely hood of it being a Makanist plot is highly unlikely. He further says that the punishing with fire in Makanism is prohibited, only God is allowed to punish with fire, or if you are in a field/siege battle, which wasn't the case. He accuses the radical buddhists of starting the fire to start sectarian tensions and turn Makanist against buddhist against Christian, saying "they will not divide us." The God King promises to only be a nominally King of Cambodia, and plans to allow it to stay buddhist. The God King also encourages the Makanists not to attack the radical buddhists, but to invite them for a "cup of tea." He however will not allow Makanists to be attacked once they enter the dynastic union. The God King offers to help Cambodia create a police force to stop this pointless sectarian violence. [PLAYER RESPONSE]. The God King takes the radical threat very seriously, but as Makanism is a religion of reason and peace, he wants to resolve the matter peacefully. This would include possibly canceling the dynasty union plan if the Cambodian population demands it.
    • Khmer Dip: We accept the offer of a joint police force, as the radical Buddhists are getting too powerful and violent, and may consider usurping the Khmer throne and persecuting innocent people.
  • Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot:Amadeus Diltwa Gets a science advisor that will help the modernation of the nation. (BTW, can someone help with the algo I am shitty at it).Diltwa also boosts the navy and we get our first European-like boat. We also ask the Vatican if I can get european cloth makers and labourers to help populate my country. We also convert many chipmunkish buildings to Christians churches. We get a official flag with brown on the upper part and the under part with inbetween a red stripe with a chipmunk in it. Amadeus Diltwa advices farmers to use corn to let the population grow. He also begins to teach most uper class portguese. He also asks farmers to get big corn and elk farms outside the kingdom to get it be annexed by us. We also Attack the tribes for the glory of God.
  • Malaya: Discrimination against Makanists by radicals is more common in the northern regions. All extremists are arrested and sent to a deradicalisation center in Penang. The heir to the nation, Prince Manjalara is born. Kudat develops rapidly, with trade ships already coming in from the mainland. It will take some time for urbanisation to reach the stretch of coast between Kudat and Karambunai. The University of Malaya begins admitting students, as well as building a reputation for itself so people from all over Asia can come over to study. The discovery made by a doctor last year is analysed, and dissection is authorised by the government to study this "Wellness System" within the body. It is theorised it plays a part in movement and sensitivity. Several books on calculus and algebra are brought in from the Arab world, and taught in the University. An explosive device is created in the metalworking sector of Pahang, after gunpowder is stuffed into a can made from tin. The metal is weak enough to explode when the explosive is activated, but strong enough to hold its contents. It will be used in the Royal Navy once it is safer to use, as the metalworking shop it was created in exploded. An alchemist discovers how to create solidified milk and thickened milk. He calls them cheese and yoghurt, before they go sour in the warm climate. After tasting them while still fresh, he discovers how delicious they are and begins experimenting to find a way to keep them cold.
  • Electorate of Saxony: Now with Meissen suppressed the atttetion of Saxony's Economic, Military, and Political Might is turned towards East Frisia a potential port for Saxony which will allow for increased trade. They call upon the Scandinavian Empire to help them by pressuring East Frisia into Vassal ship.
  • Karnad: The two year conference of literary scholars ends with the creation of a new script and a new language, henceforth known as Dakshini (Southern). The Dakshini language and script is adopted officially. The new language is widely implemented and is very easy as it is very similar to all the other languages of Karnad. Renovation of the fortresses on the Western and Eastern coast is initiated.
  • Kingdoms of Burgundy, Prussia, and Bohemia: With the passing of the Hofgericht Reform, Emperor William begins arranging for the establishment of an Imperial Court. He decides to make a three-man council which will work the court full-time. Ideally, he hopes to have the court consist of one lawman from Prussia or Burgundy, one from Austria, and one from Cologne. An envoy is sent to Cologne, asking permission for the new court to be based in Cologne, as well as nominate a lawman for the court, for whom Cologne will be responsible for naming a replacement in the event of his death or retirement (Nonsensicaljourney pls respond). Another envoy is sent to Austria, asking them, as the other great power in the HRE, to nominate a lawman of their choice to man the court, for whom they will be responsible for replacing in the event of his death or retirement (mod response pls). (More will come)
    • Austria names Adolf Hitler, named for the more famous Hitler. -scraw
  • Aryavarta: Many are furious over the council for letting this situation get out of hand. Vaishnav members of the council and a council of Vaishnav Scholas and Gabbar Singh suggest that the only way to defeat Chandrah Bose is to defeat him in a grand debate, and prove to his followers that the end of the Kali Yuga is not going to be so quick and de-radicalize his followers. Gabbar Singh leads a band of 50,000 irregulars who had volunteered from the major Vaishnav centres of Aryavarta to de-radicalize and reeducate their brothers. Bose's forces have reached Ujjain and Ambikapur. A planned attack by Bose's elite on Ujjain fails after they  unsucessfully try to breach the west wall of the fortified city but their attack falters after they are atacked by the guards patrolling underground. After the attack is discovered, great bombards in the fort bombard the formation of 5000 troops in the scrublands. A similar attack on Ambikapur is discovered and a fierce night battle takes place in the scrublands outside the Ambikapur fort leading to the area around it being set ablaze. With Ambikapur and Ujjain secure, Gabbar SIngh leads attacks against small fortresses of Bose's forces in the western flanks. 
  • Tsardom of Belka: The Succession war continues in earnest as the two sides once again meet in open battle this time outside of Vidin with both armies back at full strength. While the first part of the battle goes badly for General Kamarov, a strategic retreat and a feint across the river catch Usurper Johanns forces off guard allowing a trap to be sprung allowing the now recovered Belkan Loyalists to kill or capture nearly 15,000 of the Rebel troops forcing them back. However while this is going on and the battle is joined a mercenary force of 20,000 headed by 5000 professional troops from Johann make a beeline for Vasiligrad and besiege the city. However just to the South the Tsar himself commands an army of nearly 15,000 Professional troops from the Aegean shield Garrisons which given their propensity for Shock warfare challenge the larger force outside the Gates of Vasiligrad. Tsar Petar knows that whithout a victory this Battle could see the loss of the capital. Tsar Petar knowing the high discipline of these troops refuses to engage the Usurpers forces until he is right on top of them opening up 3 volleys staggered behind one another from barely a short throwing distance from the Usurpers forces. The inability of Johanns forces to break the discipline of the hardened Aegean garrison forces disheartens the forces and the subsequent wreaking of havoc caused by the close quarters oriented forces leaves the army attempting to take Vasiligrad nearly cut in half but at the cost of nearly 75% casualties for the Tsars forces as well. Reports of colonels and other officers fighting in the wildernesses of Belka and on other border frontiers trickle back to both sides with minor gains and losses on both sides. The only notable gain is by a now slowly becomming notorious general on Johanns side known as "The Reaper" his name comming from a refusal to take prisoners. His march of nearly 20,000 Professional soldiers is considered unstoppable as he bring 20,000 more general forces to bear to bottle up the remaining garrison forces in Belgrad taking his main army towards Sarajevo. However the Garrison of Sarajevo knowing in advance is able to marshall together a militia forces backed by about 2000 Bosnian and Croatian provincial veterans from the Italian league war which co-ordinate the building of Defensive fortifications against the oncoming forces of The Reaper. The 10,000 strong force hopes to hold out long enough for reinforcements currently under training in Croatia to come to bear. With almost 20,000 Professional troops almost ready in the fields near Zagreb and the Strategic points secured by garrisons and the Strategic fortress at Trieste the force is ready to be brough to bear. Johann on the other hand looks to use the religiously zealous in his territories hoping to use them as a human wave to plain and simple overrun Tsar Petar and his forces which have given him a much harder time than he intended. Interestingly enough Johann begins losing contact with various farms almost all of them slave plantation based farms in the Wallachian farmlands.
  • Scandinavian Empire: Development happens around the capital Riksdale, as well as in Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oldenburg and Visby. The ports of Vindov and Libov (Windau and Libau) in Couronia are being promoted. Colonial endeavours around Olafsdale (Labrador settlements) and New Blekinge (Hudson Bay settlements) continue. We move inland in our colonies, in order to expand our land mass, also moving in the direction of the great river towards the inland. Protestant preachers are sent to Oldenburg and the Hebrides and Catholic power is undermined in the region, and money is sent to the Protestant groups within the Hansa. We plan a colonisation trip to Africa. Queen Catherine introduces tea as a popular drink in the higher echelons of Scandinavian society. The military is being reformed and a refurbishing of forts, particularely at the Karelian chokepoint, the Prussian-Scandinavian border and on the Sudreyar. We study the Belkan tactics in their civil war, learning about grenadiers.
  • Papal States: The Papal Guard and the Saxons, in a masterful operation, are able to recapture the Pope from under the very noses of the infidels. By happy coincidence, the operation takes place on 1 August: the Feast of the Liberation of Saint Peter. On returning to Rome, Pope Cornelius makes a triumphant parade through the city streets, culminating at St Peter's, where he says a thanksgiving mass for the throngs of faithful there. In his homily, Cornelius says that he is convinced the successful capture was thanks in no small part to the prayers of all the faithful for his release, and to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, specifically Our Lady of Pituba, to whom the Pope prayed often. After the mass, he greets his nephew Monsignor Paulo, and thanks him for his leadership in his absence. Missions continue in the New World (especially Mzerka), Korea-China, Japan, Lan Xang, and Southern Africa.
    • The day of the Pope's return becomes known as Thanksgiving Day and is celebrated across the land. -scraw
  • Kingdom of England, Ireland and Scotland: The Sultunate of Gujarat and Emirate of Sindh continue as our protectorates with the King giving the English East India company the charter to be responsible for these lands. The English East India Company forms the Army of Islamic India which is a force from both Gujarat and Sindh paid for by the protectorates but commanded and trained by the English crown while weapons consisting of muskets, filed artillery and cannons are brought in from England to equip this bi- national army of 60,000 men with several dozen English officers brought over to learn the language, train and command the new army while the Indian force is trained with the new weapons and in the European drill. Schools are set up in both capitals which provide free education to noble's children to Grammar, rhetoric and logic as part of the traditional English trivium with all of this taught in Latin. These grammar schools admit hundreds of pupils a year and are paid for by the protectorates. Trade with Sindh and Gujarat increases as they now hold a monopoly over their markets and trade for Asian goods. As part of the volunteer system, Indians are taken from their lands to New Canterbury and the Bay of Kost to settle. With the famine in Ireland and resulting migration we don't do anything about the Irish famine since the problem comes and goes but all Irishmen relocating to England are given a loan by the government worth a year's labourer wages which they can repay over 12 years to allow them to fit into the country. Construction of the strategic fortress in Cork, Ireland should take two years. Work keeps moving in Edinburgh. England has 5.8 million people, Wales has 0.6 million Ireland has 1.5 million people and Scotland 1.1 million people. New canals continue to be built in England and Wales linking rivers and cities. Roads are also built to connect some areas as well with this new transport infrastructure building in an inter linked England and Wales. Changes in agriculture continue with enclosures in Ireland and land reclamation through ditches and windmill pumps and the rise of capitalism in farmers as internal markets allow sale of goods within England while four field crop rotation is near universal by now and mining of minerals such as coal and iron which Britain has while goods are brought in from the colonies like sugar, chocolate, bananas, tobacco and cotton for use in England sale to a wider market of Europe but duty tariffs externally are kept high.    
  • Russia: An expedition is launched discovering several Islands in the Island chain south of the Binkov Sea. Plans on the quadrouple canals are planed for a series of canals to link Moscow, and one Canal from the capital Novgorod to Feodorburg.
  • Bengal Sultanate: The Bengali government and Great Leader had invaded our much larger but fragile neighbor, Aryavarta these last 2 years pushing them back to the western half,Meanwhile Bose's forces in the civil war is being supported privately. In the invasion of the nation, we activated eight-tenths of our troops and reserves with many mercenaries that have been proven to be quite professional in an all out war with Aryavarta (algo will be added shortly). In the first year, 3 planned out surprise attacks push Aryavarta to the central part of the nation. This is supported by lots of gunpowder, flintlock guns, and cannons. In our second year which is this year, we invade the central part of the nation with our remaining forces. Troops that were found in Eastern Aryavarta were taken as prisoner. Many of the resistance movements were also crushed by the majorty being imprisoned. Our invasion of Central Aryavarta was quite challenging but left us with vctory nonetheless. victims of the war were supported with medical care and housing. Back in Bengal the economy booms from all this material and weapon making. Ships are built in mass numbers. In Padrina mines continue to build the economy up but with war in the mainland, expansion is put at a standstill. Forts are built across Central Aryavarta. OTL Nepal is left alone and is unnafected due to how mountainous it is. We hope for Aryavartan surrender in the following year or they wll face the consequences of being invaded further. crops are grown in large numbers and 18,000 pounds of gold is dug up this year keeping a stabalized nation in place. Market places and business continue to become more and more so of a common sight in Burma. Bhutan continues to develop even further with a University planned to be made in the next 2 years. With a state of war still in place, the nation continues to be doing fairly well. Banten and Chittagong are being worked on being redeveloped at the moment and should catch up to Bengal in a few years.
    • Okay, you just cant say in 1680 that you invaded me in 1679. I don believe in you sieging loosely defined regions. -Dev
  • English Arcadia: our fifth governor, Oliver Cornelius comes to power. He continues the most policies of his predecessors, but does away with giving free money to immigrants, and instead opts for giving away more land. In order to finance this, expansion continues, Especially into the great lakes region and into western Pennsylvania. In addition, we start to colonize the southern side of Lake Niagara. We use these colonies to continue to build trade with the Iroquois, as well as other native groups in the region. The colony is currently garrisoned by 6,000 (Person?) British troops, along with 6,000 more Arcadians. Our major forts are at either mouth of the Kobec River, at the mouth of the Connecticut river, and near New Rome and New Essex.
  • Great Union of Korea and China: The Bank of China is nationalized, with more branches being established throughout the country. To further enforce the system of gold certificates, the direct usage of gold bullion is discouraged. Property laws are further strengthened. The heir apparent Kim Seokdu (of the Manchu Orho cadet branch) is officially coronated as the Emperor in Bukgyeong. Known to be promiscuous, the number of imperial concubines and consorts (barring the Empress consort herself) soars to sixty members. Yunnan is fully annexed as a military-administered province, with General Fu Zhouze being appointed governor-general. Per discretion from the Emperor himself, the state-sponsored genocide of the Hui begins, with Hui being forced to either renounce Islam or to be faced with execution. All mosques are closed and burnt to ashes, except foreign-operated mosques intended to serve foreigners. The government continues to construct industrial complexes aimed at augmenting the military-industrial sector, thereby consolidating state power (the basic internal policy of the dynasty). Commerce is also promoted, with merchant guilds flourishing. Due to external demand for exports, and the rise in food supply (due to the implementation of modern agricultural techniques and usage of high-yield crops such as maize and potatoes), a division of labour is made. Many peasants and serfs shift from an agrarian lifestyle to work in the cultivation of cash crops (such as tea or cotton) or in the production of luxury goods (such as porcelain and silk). Calculus from the Caliphate is adopted and integrated into tertiary schooling. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Royal Sciences continues to receive heavy investment with many prodigious and educated scholars being assigned there upon the completion of their studies.
  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies. The royal guards continue convincing contracted servants. Areas interior to Mombasa and Malindi is colonized. We also send out conquistadors to expand northwards into more northern Somalia. We begin setting up chocolate, coffee, sugar, cotton and tobacco plantations. Several Banks in Swahili begins joining the stock exchange in Mogadishu, as postal services had increased in speed with the advent of new types of ships. A committee is formed in the city of Mogadishu on the reformation of the city sewer system after population of Mogadishu has grew past 500,000. Newspapers are first printed in Mogadishu and Zanzibar after a merchant returns from Bengal (Swahili had the movable type for a long time), named the Mogadishu Gazette and the Zanzibar Gazette, published weekly. Schools are constructed in major cities, transformed from previous mosques. These schools teaches Arabic and Swahili, arithmetic, logic and theology. Land reclamation and the rise of capitalism improves the sale of goods within Swahili. Following a reformation towards the market economy after increased agricultural output, Swahili begins planning the construction of a faster road system. The Madrassa of Mogadishu develops efficient agricultural techniques for Arcadian crops and also detoxification of several Arcadian plants. They are popularized and the agricultural output increases. A scholar at the Madrassa of Mogadishu discovers the cell.
    • Sultanate of Qamar: Qamar receives a garrison of 1000 Swahili soldiers to act as Royal Guards and Guards of the Swahili Embassy. Swahili merchants also begin purchasing workshops and port facilities in Qamar under funding by the Bank of Mogadishu.
    • Lakshadweep: Swahili merchants begin scouting the site and builds cargo storage units in the area. A small port is built with a garrison of 100 men fed by small orchards and farms on the island due to the small size of the island.

1681

The new caligraphy used in Krete, according to archaeologists, seem to come from a time long, long ago and a land far, far away.

Tazdea completes standarizing the Dene syllabic language. 

Sectarian violence subsides in SE Asia.

The court of the Holy Roman Empire has a lot of Dutch-speaking people in it. Just thought you'd like to know. 

The Iroqoise Confederacy threatens war if the English keep taking their land. 

Chandra Bose marches his army towards Delhi, hoping to take out the Maharaja himself, while the rest of Aryavarta outside of the metropolitan Delhi falls off into mostly autonomy. 


  • Rashidun Caliphate: The economy and culture turns inward to work out issues within the nation. The Jaffarid Sultanate takes more power as the Caliph is weaker. Trade relations still continue with China through the port of Gulangyu we control, and European captives are secretly sold off for better prestige of the Caliphate in China. The Amharic Sojourn ends with the period known as the Amharic Aliyah, alternatively the Amharic Exodus. A general call by the Solomonic nobility in Ethipoia summons all those oppressed in Egypt to return to their homeland in the south. Thousands of Amharic and Coptic people begin migrating out of Egypt to Ethiopia, disrupting the Arab colonies there. The Avengers still fight crime and injustice, if anyone was interested. Captain Arabia, Iron Soldier, and Hubal travel into Belka to help Tsar Peter retain the throne from Johann, particularly in securing the city of Vasiligrad. They lead a group of Turkic mercenaries to aid Tsar Peter, claiming to be converted Turkish slaves. 
  • Aryavarta: A group of 25,000 elite soldiers led by Gabbar Singh attacks Bose's convoy and takes him prisoner, bringing him to the major Vaishnav shrine of Vrindavan. The Vaishnavs and Shaivs differ only in the prioritisation of gods, all the deities are revered and respected by both the sects. While Shaivsim had been dominant for the past 80 years, the Vaishnav shrines were not attacked or destroyed, the Vaihnavs were not discriminated against, their gods were revered and respected by the Shaivites and multiculturalism was respected all through these years. (As it has been in Hindu history). The difference between Hindu sects is very minute, no one can look at people and diffrentiate them as Shaivs, Vaishnavs, Bhakts, Shakts or Smarts. All are treated equally. But this Brahman named Bose had started radicalizing the Vaishnavs, disrespecting the non-Vaishnav gods which share power with Vishnu in the almighty Trinity. A grand debate is organized between Bose and the Vaishnav scholars, including Vaishnav members of the council in Vrindavan. He is defeated in the debate which was held for two weeks. All Vaishnav scholars from the Vaishnav shrines of Aryavarta had come to Vrindavan. All of them upheld Krishna's words of a 10,000 year golden age and a 300,000 year Kali Yuga which had started just 4000 years ago when Krishna ascended to heaven (around 3000 BCE). Also they say that the Golden Age of the Kali Yuga will end only after the people stop believeing in God and the fact that the vast majority believes in God proves that the Golden Age has not ended. They also state that Bose has made his followers commit sins by killing their own brothers on religious ground. While all of them believe in one or the other God of the Trinity. With the defeat of Bose by the Vaishnav scholars in Vrindavan, the anger in the radicalized Vaishnavs subsides as they again start respecting the multiculturalism of Aryavarta. This also happens due to the fact that Bengal has invaded which is seen as a bigger enemy due to it being a Muslim country which has started forcefully converting the Hindus of Bengal. With a wiser Chnadra Bose knowing that a Bengali victory would lead to Muslim hegemony and oppression not only for the Shaivites but also for the Vaishnavites. He raises a band of 50,000 followers from Marathwar, Malwa and Delhi and races east to support the Aryavartiya army. While Gabbar SIngh leading a group of 25,000 men races around western Aryavarta reuniting the janpads (provinces) which had fallen into autonomy under their council appointed Governors, after disruption in Delhi.
    • Iberian Diplomacy: Looking to capitalize on India's internal strife and reduce Muslim influence in the Indian Ocean, Iberia offers to help restore order to Aryavarta and join the war against Bengal, a Muslim aggressor and trade competitor, and thus one of Iberia's natural enemies in the east. In return, they ask for preferential trading rights and some coastal land (to be determined at the end of the war). 10,000 troops and 45 ships are sailed to Vizagapatam in preparation for this campaign. A number of mercenaries (~1,000) also travel to India to join Aryavarta's forces.
    • I didn't find anything in bengals post about force converting hindus. ~Warrior
    • Also, how can you stop a massive civil war from a debate? its like assad saying, "uhhh western devils are gonna exploit syria and its resources, so you better stop fighting and drop your weapons." yea no. ~Warrior
    • II agree with Warrior and also this would not make sense tfor Bose to do this as we are supporting him still and his rebels. Your Civil War has not yet ended and will continue as long as you do not resolve it in a more proper manner leaving you still vulnerable. Also I did not forcefully convert Hindus. ~Adolf
    • Hindu history has never seen intra-Hindu violence and as Dev has mentioned the Hindus revere all of their Gods and respect even the atheists. Historians have mentioned it is very difficult to separate the vast majority of  Hindus into sects. All sects of Hinduism have been tightly knit together after the revival of Hinduism and after Shankar, through his debates with the various scholars, proved his point of the Advaita philosophy. -DrDrake346
    • except dev has claimed 85 percent of his nation worships Shiva as the supreme god, when the north is predominatly krishna/vaishnite. While hinduism has never seen this violence, such a radical shift would likely cause it due to Shaivism being associated with Tamil/south indian/southeast asian culture and not the north. 
    • Let me add, I don't think the problem is of religion, its of ethnic division. Dev has spent so much time promoting "Aryan identity" and the north is very krishnite/vaishnite, that if he promoted that asb proto nationalism so much, shaivism would been seen as tamil domination.  
    • This is all meta, the mod event has said one thing, regardless of whether is implausible or not go complain to a mod about the mod event. Don't more or less disregard it like that, this Chandra Bose bloke isn't yours to control and you can't just end the civil war whether you think it is dumb or not. It's meta whether your right or not. Person.  
    • Yeah umm, Person I said he was captured.
    • Strike. -scraw
  • Malaya: With sectarian violence going down, we release the arrested. Urbanisation continues along the Sabahan coast. A new variant of the rubber tree is bred in Pahang, and subsequently planted in plantations across the country. The rubber harvested from this variant has higher yield and is more versatile, and alchemists and labourers are experimenting with it to see its uses. Cheese is produced in areas with cattle being reared, and wrapped in wax for preservation. They are exported to nearby nations as the produce is not expected to survive the long journey into Europe. A noodle dish seasoned with spices and soup becomes popular, called "Laksa". It makes its way into kopitiams, where it is enjoyed alongside kopi. Attempts to grow kopi in local farms are successful, and variants are soon grown. A new fruit has been discovered in Sabah, called the "Lada" (Peppercorn). It has a spicy taste which is used to garnish the local food. It begins being cultivated in farms. 
  • Lan Xang: God King continues to promote peace and grace, and invites Christians, and buddists to tea and banquets. He improves infrastructure, improving the irrigation to eventually boost the population, while the plan to switch to a siniced script continues. A great Church is built, a buddhist temple in the bengali style architecture in Vientiane. Makanist worshippers do not need temples, they worship out home or outside. Meanwhile, the God King modernizes the country, building Korean style gunpowder weapons for defense, while keeping to the traditional Lan Xang sword style. More Makanist missions are sent to rural Cambodia, Champa,Malaya, Siam, and Bengal, avoiding the cities after the fire hoax. The God King declares himself a "Man of the Peasants and Tribals." Makanism can be practiced by anyone due to not requiring a specific or any place of worship. However, in Lan Xang PROPER, urbanization is happening at a steady pace, and Makanism is spreading in the cities there. The Catholic mission continues, and the God King promises them a housing area in Muang Xay. The Nestorians are in the capital. For first time, technology is being developed with what little Lan Xang has. Examples include improving of firearms, metalurgy, upgrading the blast furnaces and indigenously producing them. Smiths produce these items, and artisans sell these items. The economic sector is improving.
    • Lan Xang Diplomacy: We transport 1000 of our troops to aid our ally and fellow Chinese tributary bengal in their war against Aryavarta. They are armed with Korean Firearms.  
  • Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot:We ask the vatican to give us aid to conquer the pagan tribes and we ask them to call for a crusade (PLAYERS RESPONSE).We also begin to introduce european clothing into Mzerkan culture .We produce 1 000 guns and we begin looking into ways how to use a gunmen on an elk. We also begin to use more corn and now 75% of farmers use it. We keep also attacking the tribes. We tame more elk. Now we got 10,000 elk in our territory.
    • No you don't.. way too quick on the development uptake. -Feud
    • Okay, sorry, how many max? -vinny
    • You shouldn't be able to produce your own guns after only a few years of contact with Europe. OTL natives bought their guns from European suppliers through the arms trade, but they were produced in Europe and regulated by the European powers.
    • Ah okay, sorry, excuse me I didn't know that.
  • Tsardom of Belka: The Civil war continues in earnest. With nearly 100,000 casualties already brought to bear after just a few years of war, it has become clear that warfare during this crisis is not going to be an easy affair. The Seige of Sarajevo in the Province of Serbia continues with the 10,000 man force being cut down to just under 2500. The Reaper himself fires the final shot which puts a breach in the defenses. However while this is going on the Reaper is caught from behind with the full force of the now fully trained Army of the West which surrounds Johanns forces. The besiegers become the besieged as finally by winter the final decisive engagement occurs between the usurpers poorly supplied forces and the Western Army plus the remainder of Srajevos garrison. The Battle is woefully one sided as of the 20,000 troops brought in by the Usurper is absolutely crushed under the better equipped and supplied Loyalist forces and only a few thousand escape hoping to run into the sieging force outside of the Ruins of Belgrad. However the Western Army pursues refusing to let such a salient exist and fights another decisive battle outside of Belgrad which crushes the vastly unprofessional militia that was brought with the Reapers initial army. The securing of Serbia however becomes the only victory this year as the Tsar and his Generals are slammed with unheard of levels of manpower. Nearly 100,000 militia and recently raised unprofessional troops in crude battle formations storm into Bulgaria and Greece. the roughly 40,000 Professional troops in the area having been badly mauled last year are not put into the field as they wait for their reinforcements before pushing back into Wallachia. The Aegean Garrison having previously fought outside Vasiligrad northwards on the Coast is forced to fall back as the various armies are all aplit between the 2 20,000 strong armies in Bulgaria, another 15,000 strong on the Black sea coast and 5000 left to defend the Aegean. The final Professional forces being left in the West fighting in Serbia. The inability to link up the armies is bad but also doubles in not allowing the Johannist forces from pushing any further south than Adrianograd without suffering severe supply shortages or exposed flanks. Sporadic fighting between advance units and patrols continues all year. However with this going on Johann makes a final bid looking to end the war once and for all by taking the capital. Drawing in his remaining 35,000 troops of the Great Vlach Army he marches south and with nearly 50,000 militiamen and lesser troops attacks Vasiligrad forcing the 15,000 strong Aegean garrison into Vasiligrads defensive walls. The first test of the Theodosian walls now known as the Walls of Kaloyan to be tested. While vastly outnumbering Tsar Petars forces, Vasiligrad holds defiantly.
  • Karnad: We invade Aryavarta with 150,000 troops and quickly overrun Maharashtra due to absence of troops. Another 50,000 troops guard our cosatline. Development of the agricultural sector continues. New cities and towns are constructed. A road running from Mysore to Tanjore is under construction. A University for mathematics is stablished in Tanjore. The administrative system is efficient and the King is quite impressed. With landless farmers being given lands in newer areas, the amount of labor goes down, forcing many feudal houses to sell their lands as no one is ready to till it. Tax rates are decided by the court and are implemented by the county officials. Dakshini is widely implemented and rises in popularity. Schools open up in the cities. Village level education in pathshalas by the local gurus is immensely popular.
    • Meluakam: Balochistan is renamed Melu-Akam (meaning high land). A governor is appointed by the court of Karnad. The population stands at 2 million. The civil services are set up just like they are in Karnad. A new capital is established on the coast and is named Uttaranagar (meaning northern city). Large number of people from Karnad start settling in the sparsely inhabited areas of Meluakam. A committee of officers divides Meluakam into various counties. A new version of Dakshini comes into existence called as Melu-Dakshini. Agricultural development projects are started. Schools are being built. A large number of gurus come to Meluakam to teach the people and form the local village education system. Fortresses are established on the coast. Roads are being built, manufactories, foundries, furnaces and printing presses open up in Meluakam. The canal and road projects provide employment to a large number of people. A small Suddhi movement is launched. By the end of the year some 200,000 people from Karnad have resettled into Meluakam.
  • Kingdom of England, Ireland and Scotland: The East Indian Company continues to train the Army of Islamic India with the supplying of muskets, horses and field artillery as well as other important things such as the boots for soldiers. Due to heat the soldiers cannot be given red jackets but traditional clothing they wear already is dyed red for the soldiers. They also train in drill and formation of European line infantry commanded by British officers learning the language. The two grammar schools constructed in the respective capitals continue to teach the trivium to noble's children. Seeing the threat from Hindus and strife across the border the East India company orders new work begin on a better strategic fort at Modasa in Gujarat and we also start construction of a new strategic fort at Guddu to control the river. These strategic forts will be controlled by Gujarat and Sindh and take around 10 years to build with the defences taking inspiration from European star forts consisting of 8 bastions and surrounding earthworks as well as cleared surroundings but they are small in size since they don't need to protect much area. Trade with Sindh and Gujarat increases as they now hold a monopoly over their markets and trade for Asian goods. As part of the volunteer system, Indians are taken from their lands to New Canterbury and the Bay of Kost to settle and the areas aren't expanded but more people are settled in the existing areas. With the famine in Ireland and resulting migration we don't do anything about the Irish famine since the problem comes and goes but all Irishmen relocating to England are given a loan by the government worth a year's labourer wages which they can repay over 12 years to allow them to fit into the country. The fortress of Cork is finished with sea based defences consisting of gun batteries and a chain boom protecting entry into Cork as well as defences to protect them and defensive earthworks and bastions surrounding the town itself to defend it from overland attack. England has 5.8 million people, Wales has 0.6 million Ireland has 1.5 million people and Scotland 1.1 million people. Small amounts of migration to England from Scotland due to enclosures. Transport upgrades are pulled back for a few years as we make the first of a series of repayments to China on the loan we took out. Changes in agriculture continue with enclosures in Scotland and land reclamation through ditches and windmill pumps and the rise of capitalism in farmers as internal markets allow sale of goods within England while four field crop rotation is near universal by now and mining of minerals such as coal and iron which Britain has while goods are brought in from the colonies like sugar, chocolate, bananas, tobacco and cotton for use in England sale to a wider market of Europe but duty tariffs externally are kept high.    
  • Bengal Sultanate: Bengal enters it's third year of war with Aryavarta leading with 300,000 troops into more Aryavartan provinces. The forces are no match for our army and a clash occurs between us in Delhi. Although we outnumbered them it was slightly toubling to defeat them. Either way Delhi had fallen. Troops looked for surviving military members and government officials and some were taken. We request Aryavarta to surrender or face further consequences. We offer supplies to Karnad in it's war in southern Aryavarta by giving them cannons and gunpowder. Resistance forces are mostly captured in already occupied regions and the search for more is underway. Gunpowder and weaponry continue to be produced in large amounts. In Padrina we continue to grow coffee and mine for diamonds. More small ports are constructed around the coast. In the other colonies, agriculture and ship making continues to grow. In Ahom and Bhutan, gold continues to be mined. In Burma, the muslim population is on the rise with Makanist seen as a minority. In Banten people start to work on irrigation and agriculture with many spices and coffee being produced. We hope this is our last year of war with Aryavarta but if not the conflict shall continue until peace is reached. We also send 250 of our battleships armed with weapons and cannons just in case anyone else decides to get involved out into the Bay of Bengal with 13,000 reserved troops on standby to join in on defending the Bay.      
  • Scandinavian Empire: Development happens around the capital Riksdale, as well as in Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Oldenburg and Visby. The ports of Vindov and Libov (Windau and Libau) in Couronia are being promoted. Colonial endeavours around Olafsdale (Labrador settlements) and New Blekinge (Hudson Bay settlements) continue. We move inland in our colonies, in order to expand our land mass, also moving in the direction of the great river towards the inland (OTL St. Lawrence). Protestant preachers are sent to Oldenburg and the Hebrides and Catholic power is undermined in the region, and money is sent to the Protestant groups within the Hansa. We plan a colonisation trip to Africa. Queen Catherine introduces tea as a popular drink in the higher echelons of Scandinavian society. The military is being reformed and a refurbishing of forts, particularely at the Karelian chokepoint, the Prussian-Scandinavian border and on the Sudreyar. We study the Belkan tactics in their civil war, learning about grenadiers.      
  • Poland: Poland announces that they are creating a military and economic coalition for protection against Russia, Poland offers Scandinavia, Saxony, Burgundy, and Prussia to join (Player response needed). Meanwhile, Poland also offers a marriage alliance to Saxony (Player response needed). Poland also begins building up its army in size and skill. Thus, Poland begins to train its army into a professional army, and enlarge it, along with this Poland stations it’s army along the Russian border, it will take 5 years to train them.       
  • Electorate of Saxony: With continued Economic advancement and the inability to further advance their military Saxony decides to advance their technology and thus begins pouring the massive amount of wealth and other resources they have into technological advancement and further improving their military technology such as improvements in armor, muskets, and tactics, along with the development of new weapons of war. Meanwhile, Saxony continues to attempt to pressure East Frisia into joining Saxony and thus time offers Money along with once again calling upon the Scandinavian Empire to assist them. Meanwhile, they accept Poland's marriage proposal and spend their insane amounts of wealth on one of the most lavish weddings to be held in 1682 and rulers from all over Europe are invited… along with this the pope is asked to send a cardinal to be minister at the wedding or even Pope himself, considering that without the Saxon’s help his rescue would have been much harder.
  • Maghreb:Trade: We continue our trade with Europe and Africa as traders meet up in smaller city due to protest, The Maghreb also begins to try it hand at the spice and salt trade via selling more salt and spices, gold is slown down to prevent inflation. Government: The new Government is set up being called Maghreb States,Badr is given Shura power and begins to set up schools,laws,and things of that level. Rasfan is given more of a poetry and Scientific Advancement. A new leader is picked both by the Islamist and Humanist factions and that man is named Faruk Current Event: The Sultan Faruk goes to Mecca, Damascus, Cairo and Aleppo and Mednia to work on improving relationships with the Emirates and work on creating a trade deal but with governers/emir
      • Tajammad Emirate: The Emirate works on preparing for the cold seasons by collecting firewood during the summer. Walls and Houses are reworked on to defend the "Ansari" from animals. Hunting parties are sent to hunt down animals and eat them, while some are killed for their winter fur. A mosque is made called Al Hawqk and is made in hope of rivaling other Mashjids. Haush land is given to Tajamidan people to rule these areas are called "Forts". New World food is sent back home to be traded. Our ships begin to train on how to sail the rocky seas to reach the Pacific Ocean and study the ways to the Pacific Ocean. Due to the way of the New World women are given more physically as in helping create the wall or guarding areas. The port (not the best or biggest) of Tajammad is re-made along with ocean defense walls and gun ports made along with 50 cannons. The population stands at 30,720 people with a slow rise in pop. The Ona state is annexed into the Emirate and Ona majority areas are put under an Ona that accepted Islam named Hassan al Badr but some question his loyalty and if he converted just to gain power, Islam with the Ona people slowly rise as a 50% percent in the Ona Population become muslim, as the Ona state is named the Ona Bukrain. Seeing the killing of Tajjamdians the State begins to hold up strong military view as the Emir begins to arm more colonist.
      • Emirate of Al Maqadas: The Emirate is set up in Port Alegre and walls and houses are placed up to bring cover to the population of 17,000 people. A port is worked on. The Emirate begins to expand across the coast by 7 px. More Arms and sent to Emirate to help arm the people of the Emirate.
  • Russia: Internal canal construction continues, the 4 River canal system with Moscow as the central hub of the canals begins. In response to the Polish aggression, the Tsar places 620,000 Troops along the Polish Frontier. The Baltic Fleet (105 ships) is placed on alert.
    • Georgia: More roads are constructed into Russia to link Tbilisi with Novgorod and other cities.
  • English Arcadia: our fifth governor, Oliver Cornelius comes to power. He continues the most policies of his predecessors, but does away with giving free money to immigrants, and instead opts for giving away more land. We also begin encouraging citizens of English India to migrate to Arcadia, promising them the same rights that are granted to Europeans. Our population stands at nearly 1.35 million people. In order to finance the rapid immigration, expansion continues, Especially into the great lakes region and into western Pennsylvania, though we acknowledge the Iroquois request an avoid expansion into their territory. We continue to build trade with the Iroquois, as well as other native groups in the region. The colony is currently garrisoned by 6,000 (Person?) British troops, along with 6,000 more Arcadians. Our major forts are at either mouth of the Kobec River, at the mouth of the Connecticut river, and near New Rome and New Essex.
  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies. The royal guards continue convincing contracted servants. Areas interior to Mombasa and Malindi is colonized. We also send out conquistadors to expand northwards into more northern Somalia. We continue setting up chocolate, coffee, sugar, cotton and tobacco plantations. Several Banks in Swahili begins joining the stock exchange in Mogadishu, as postal services had increased in speed with the advent of new types of ships. A committee is formed in the city of Mogadishu on the reformation of the city sewer system after population of Mogadishu has grew past 500,000. The road project begins with plannings of a highway going from Somaliland through Qamar to Aliwa. The scholar, named Hu-ka, publishes a treatise with over 100 diagrams of cells, prompting a paradigm shift in the Madrassa of Mogadishu. The Sultan orders scholars in the Madrassa of Mogadishu to develop Standard Swahili, a creole of Swahili and Standard Arabic.
    • Sultanate of Qamar: Qamar switches its national language to both Swahili and Standard Arabic.
    • Lakshadweep: Merchants plan on expanding the islands by sinking ships and connecting them to the island.

1682

In a climactic battle outside of Patna, comparable only to the Kurukshetra War, the Shavist and Vaishnavist forces clash for 18 days, killing Chandra Bose and scattaring his followers. 

Although victorious over the civil war, Aryavarta is extremely weakened, and now controls very little otuside of Patna's metropolitan area. The rest of the nation falls apart into mostly-autonomous states.

French wine is introduced to Malaya via Burgundy.

Lan Xang does such a great job having Buddhists and Christians work together that some Catholic prelates complain to the Pope that some churches in SE Asia are using heretical practices.

Not as many people are willing to go to Baloch as Karnad expected.

The Iroqoise express that their claim spans the western branch of the Susquehana river. 

The Sultanate of Rum invades Cilicia. 

The Zulu Kingdom after years of its own isolation due to events further north, officially sends its first trade ships to Arabia and East Africa.

The old Tsar of Poland decides his last war will be to lay claim to the throne of his grandfather, Bulgaria. Seizing upon these rights, he proclaims himself to be the rightful heir to Belka, taking advantange of the current war between the factions. He takes half of Poland's entire strength with him while the other half are being raised and are yet to come.

  • The mods area aware that Poland has a player?
  • He was informed that he can play after the event chain is over, This is not something we were not aware of -Feud
  • Well that's kinda unfair... but alas... If you say so. -Brick
  • Rashidun Caliphate: The military and economy are upgraded under the control of the Jaffarid Sultanate. The Ulema continue to be largely puppets of the Jaffarids while the Caliph is also their lacky. While peaceful relations are arranged with Africa, the former African Sultan is summoned from Libya to live in Cairo, where his stay and retirement will be quite comfortable. The Ulema also agree to enter the broader trade agreement with Morocco, and includes this compact with all the remaining vassals of the Caliphate. The Amharic Alihah continues, as thousands more Coptics immigrate back to Ethiopia, disrupting the Arab colonies. Art and culture are produced at the House of Wisdom along with scientific discoveries. The new Sultan, Khalid Jaffar, is mentally unstable, mostly megalomaniacal. He has dreams of utilizing the Caliphate for a new wave of conquest and expansion.
  • Tsardom of Belka: The movement of Tsar Stanislav and his troops into Belka catches Johann off guard, who while is distracted by the sieges in the South has yet to fully commit the core of his final army into the fight having spent the time trying to probe and overwhelm Tsar Petars Loyalists. He brings to bear 20,000 Professional troops, and nearly 80,000 lower level and militia units to bear on Stanislavs 30,000 strong army. His army is absolutely eviscerated in the opening engagement near the Moldavian border, and Johann hastily retreats only to be caught from behind and the remainder of his army encircled. In an attempt to break the Encirclement only 5000 of Johanns professional troops manage to break out and the rest of the army is absolutely crushed in the ensuing chaos. Johann himself is killed in the breakout and the 5000 survivors of the two battles practically run south as Stanislav secures a beachhead in Moldavia and northern Wallachia. Almost all the fighting in the south stops as the survivors report their findings to both factions, one of which now doesnt have their titular leader. The remainder of the Johannist faction folds and agrees to end the civil war now without a cause to continue it. Tsar Petar quickly takes his proper place in Vasiligrad and issues a decree pardoning the remainder of Johanns forces saying that an internal conflict cannot overshadow the External threat which has threatened the independence of Belka. He follows this up with an official declaration of defensive war on Poland and refuses the claim of Stanislav over the Belkan Tsardom. He heads to Lead his army a combined total Professional force of 80,000 as well as nearly 50,000 lighter auxiliaries or militia. They head north and pass into Vlach officially encountering the Polish forces near the city of Brasov near various refugee camps and disorganized militia formerly part of the Johannist faction. Petar learns through these various remnants that Stanislav has spent the last month and a half subjugating Moldavia and northern Vlach evenutally killing a fair deal of people in these provinces. Tsar Petar meets with his generals and after much deliberation embarks on a Campaign to evict Stanislav from Belka no matter the cost. The First Battle, the Battle of Brasov ends in a literal disaster as the entire Auxilary force dissappears into the jaws of the now 50,000 strong Polish army which practically chews the auxilary/militia forces apart. The Second battle in which the Belkan forces took a stand after nearly a 2 weeks of running from place to place was the Battle of Oured. The Belkan forces held the line against the vicious polish attack and prevented the Polish entry into Southern Vlach and the Bulgar Province the most populous and developed part of the Tsardom. The next few battles took place over a 2 month period are known as the Vlach plains. These battles saw the use of great artillery Barrages mass cavalry charges, and the deaths of 10's of thousand on either side, turning it into literal killing fields. The Final battle occuring on Christmas day saw the Battered but determined Belkan army launch a desperate final attack. With their backs to the Carpathian mountains and little knowledge of the landscape on the Vlacho-Transylvannian provincial borders, led to the conclusion of a decisive battle in favor of the Belkan forces. While casualties were moderate for the 15,000 man force led by General Kamarov, they managed to fight a force twice their size unsing extremely unorthodox tactics and claim victory. The Polish Tsar Stanislav is injured during this final battle and dies shortly thereafter from a gunshot to the abdomen and its subsequent infection. (scraw and nate plz look)
    • Why is Belka able to determine the outcome of NPC battles? This was not allowed with, for instance, the Polish invasion of Prussia, or the Aryavarta civil war. -General
  • Papal States: Pope Cornelius, grateful to the Saxons for their role in his regaining his freedom from the saracens, goes to Saxony to officiate at the wedding, and to make a pastoral visit to the faithful there, meeting the local clergy, Latin and Northern-Rite. Returning to Rome, His Holiness is faced with two major issues. The first is the overwhelming popularity of his nephew Monsignor Paulo. Following Paulo's regency in Cornelius' absence, the former has enjoyed a tremendous degree of respect amongst the people and the clergy, and there is a major groundswell of support for him to be raised to the cardinalate. Cornelius is loath to do so, since it could be seen as evidence that nepotism is sneaking back into the Church. However given the massive groundswell of pressure, the Pope gives in and names Paulo a cardinal. He is not ordained a bishop, remaining a mere cardinal-priest. And his actual duties have not changed: he remains merely the Legate of Milan province. The other major issue is the letter from prelates in SE Asia. After consulting with the Holy Inquisition, scholars, and missionaries who have served in the far East, Cornelius writes an encyclical called Plane compertum. In it, Cornelius lays the groundrules for inculturation and the incorporation of local traditions. Catholics are to be permitted to take part in local and traditional rites and customs, so long as they are not explicitly idolatrous or heretical. Honouring or venerating ancestors according to Chinese customs, for example, is permissable. Learning the teachings of 'Buddha' as a philosopher is considered licit, so long as it does not cross into religious following. Catholics may also passively participate in public ceremonies which may have the appearance of superstition. In other news, the Immaculata priests sent to Zulu who were martred a few decades ago are declared Venerable by the Congregation for Canonisations. Missions continue in the New World, Korea-China, Japan, Lan Xang, and Southern Africa. 
  • Great Union of Korea and China: The Emperor Kim Seokdu begins patronizing Manchu shamanistic rituals and cultural customs, and implements a law restricting Korean immigration (placing a quota) into Manchuria proper. Furthermore, he begins appointing members of his fellow Orho cadet branch to important positions. The government continues to construct industrial complexes aimed at augmenting the military-industrial sector, thereby consolidating state power (the basic internal policy of the dynasty). Commerce is also promoted, with merchant guilds flourishing. Due to external demand for exports, and the rise in food supply (due to the implementation of modern agricultural techniques and usage of high-yield crops such as maize and potatoes), a division of labour is made. Many peasants and serfs shift from an agrarian lifestyle to work in the cultivation of cash crops (such as tea or cotton) or in the production of luxury goods (such as porcelain and silk).
  • Malaya: Rubber collection methods improve, with tapping becoming the more popular and efficient method to harvest latex from the tree. A dried version of harvested rubber is fitted around the wheels of carts to make them more durable, as well as increase mobility in uneven terrain. French wine becomes a rare luxury, available only to the higher classes. It is discovered the wine goes well with cheese, and a new method of exporting cheese is developed, involving wrapping it in many layers and keeping it in a dark, cool area, usually a box. It should allow the cheese to be exported to Europe. Expansion into Borneo continues, with harvested wood fueling the development of infrastructure nation-wide. Settlements are constructed in the northeast of the Malaya to accomodate traders from Lan Xang and Cambodia. We take note of recent developments in Southeast Asia, and our military strategists have confirmed suspicions of a Dai Viet attack on Champa that would destabilise the whole region. In best interests, we offer assistance to Champa, and begin preparing our Royal Navy.
  • Lan Xang: The God King welcomes the peace between the Makanists, Buddhists and Christians. Also something notable is a Chinese Hui muslim minority has appreaed fleeing the Chinese genocide, many of whom want to return to their homeland to retake Tali. The God King does not ally them however, as he is still a loyal tributary of China. He however promises them safety under the condition they come back to China. This is causing unique Islamic-Chinese culture to spread into Lan Xang, causing a cultural renaissance. However, there is great anger in the nation. This is not about religion. This is about an old rivalry. Tensions have been rising with Dai Viet, and many generals believe because Tondo was able to beat Dai Viet navally, if Lan Xang can support Champa and attack at the same time it can defeat Dai Viet in a war. However, the God King isn't impulsive, yet as a wise ruler, is wary about possible Vietnamese expansion. He intends to send in 5000 troops armed with copies of Korean firearms to Champa, where they will train Champa's army. He decides not to attack. However, he wants to help Champa catch up, fearing that Champa's army is very poorly trained and equipped. He also sends in 2500 gunsmiths to help them produce firearms of their own, as well as cannon, and train a hopeful eventual generation of Cham gunsmiths, though this will take time. We offer Cham this deal, and a defensive alliance. (MOD)
  • Siam: The islamic minority is growing, and we send in 5000 reinforcements from our junk ships to champa to deter a possible Dai Viet invasion
  • Japan: Outraged by the growing christian minority in his nation, Shogun Oda Nimeyutsu Expels all Christian Missionaries from Japan. He declares Christianity an insult to japan and it's culture, and also demands that all of the nobility in his realm convert to shinto or face exile and even death. And he would also, to further diminish christian influence on his country, Severely restrict trade with westerns. Following this move, the nobility is of course extremely angered and would begin plotting against the shogun, seeing oportunity in all of this, the emperor would join the plot and influence even more clans in. By the Middle of the year war breaks out in japan between the Imperial Loyalists and Shogunate Loyalists. The Imperial Faction would hold most of western japan excluding Kyoto, While the shogunate would hold the east except for Hokkaido and some northern daimyos which stay neutral at the start. In order to take advantage over the Shogun's troops, Emperor Osachi would send envoys to ask support from european countries present in east asia (Response Needed) And, by the end of the year the imperial forces would seize Kyoto. And prepare for a major offensive next year. The northern clans except for Hokkaido reluctantly join the Imperial forces on the threat of being invaded.
    • The Burgundian East India Company, who runs the Dejima trading post in Nagasaki, offers support for the Imperial faction if the Emperor promises to not continue the oppression of Giapanois Christians.
    • Russia is considering sending mercenaries and weapons in return for something.
    • Japan doesn't have a Catholic minority, it has a Catholic PLURALITY.
    • Korea–China condemns the forced expulsion of Catholic converts by the shogun, and threatens to sever tributary relations and launch a punitive expedition to overthrow the current shogun. Meanwhile, envoys are sent to Burgundy and Russia warning not to intervene in the internal affairs of its tributaries.
  • Karnad: The Dakshini language is completely implemented in all government offices. Dakshina continues to grow in popularity. A Records Department is created. Rubber and Tea plantations come up in Kerala. Rubber and Tea start to be exported to Europe. Development in the agricultural sector continues. Canals are being built in the Deccan as larger parts of cultivated areas come under irrigation. The Scythe rises suddenly in popularity and improves the efficiency of food production. The production of cash crops and animal husbandry is encouraged. The government in a landmark decision allows scientific experimentation and the dissection of human bodies. Rules for the cremation of bodies and boundaries of cremation sites are strictly defined and these are to be implemented by the head of the county. A proper Police system is created with the creation of a new county-level post, that of the County Police Chief who works with the County Head. We gradually improve drainage so as to put our wetlands into use. Because of improvements in the agricultural sector, a larger number of people start settling in the cities and towns. A new improvement to the muskets is introduced, the bayonet. Muskets are used in greater numbers as manufactories for weapons open up. Karnad starts exporting a larger number of raw materials. Landless farmers are offered land in the newly cleared areas. The wood from the newly cleared areas is either exported or used in construction of buildings. As the number of tenants falls, the feudal houses are forced to sell their land. The duty of rent and tax collection is give to the county-head. The power of feudal houses steadily declines. However there is no big feudal house to challenge, powerful enough to challenge the monarchy and its officers. Also, for a long time the feudal houses have not been allowed to raise armies. We establish direct trade relations with Cambodia, Lan Xang, Champa, Tondo and Dai Viet. Trade is increased and duties are lowered to help facilitate trade with France, Iberia and England.
    • Balochistan|Meluakam: Many landless farmers in Karnad are offered land in Meluakam. They see this as a good way to save themselves from the oppressive feudal system. They are also given money to jumpstart their farms in Meluakam. Since they are offered money in Meluakam, the choices of resettling in Karnad and Meluakam become equally attractive. Canals are dug linking the small rivers of Meluakam and this greatly improves irrigation and agricultural production. Development projects follow with roads being constructed. The capital Uttaranagar is established on OTL Chahbahar.
  • Kingdom of Mzerka and Wiyot:We Win the war against the pagan tribes and We integrate them into our kingdom. We also Ask Iberia and the papal states to get us some guns to be able to conquer more land for christianity. We also advandce our iron technology and we make our first full harnesses that are use for defencive war also a ranking system is set up in the army by a true and loyal friend of Amadeus Diltwa.
  • Bengal Sultanate: Our long war fought with Aryavarta is over. The Treaty of Gaya is signed.Punjab regains all of it's lost territory. Also Aryavarta must pay must pay us back a fraction of the total cost of the war. (More info can be found by searching for Treaty of Gaya). Also much of the eastern provinces of Aryavarta are annexed. We begin to rebuild what had been damaged in the war. The nation also begins allowing missionaries to spread islam in the region. The nation also allows makan minorities to spread makanism in the region as it might appeal better to the citizens of the newly annexed land. The nation's governors and sultan also agrees to protecting people's religious rights and makes it illegal to forcefully convert citizens to any religion. In the first few months after the annexation many people are uncomfortable and slightly concerned on what the government might bring as it is foreign. But near the end of the year people begin to prefer the Sultanate over the previous government as it seemed more fair and ideal. Construction and demolition workers are hired in large numbers causing a flood in jobs. Many homes start to be rebuilt or replaced with work on developing the valleys into coffee and chocolate farms are in the works with several farms being built across the region Near the coast, homes are developed into more modern standards with a national sewer system in the works of being built. Plans are already underway to make shipyards along the coast to produce more ships. Mines also start to get built. In Padrina, a gold mine is established and large quantities of gold are excavated. The colony with the help of native influence expand 6px inland. In the other colonies everything tends to be doing ell with not much of any big news other than A large megaship being built on Mistri. Slowly hindus and muslims learn how to live in harmony but it will take a little while longer before they could live in harmony and have it s the new norm. near the largest battles fought the homeless were given shelters until hmes are built. The mining industry should cause a huge boom in the region due to the amount of precious minerals in the region. Mines in Ahom and Bhutan continue to produe large quantities of gld and silver. The muslim population in burma continues to rise with the Makan mnority population grws with missionaries from Lan Xang spreadng the religious ideals to bhuddist.
  • Poland: We begin to build up Infrastructure. The first infrastructure plan is the construction of a major road system that connects all major cities of Poland and leads into neighboring nations, the road system will be finished in about 10 years. The second Infrastructure plan is to restructure cities and make them larger which will take about 15 years, advanced plumbing systems are being built as well. We are begin to tighten law enforcement and reduce crime. Education reforms take place, making good education more accessible. Overall large infrastructure plans are made and construction is beginning, they should be finished in 20 years. Around the end of the year the our new tsar attempts to begin somewhat positive relations with Belka(player response needed).
  • Kingdom of England, Ireland and Scotland: The East Indian Company continues to train the Army of Islamic India with the supplying of muskets, horses and field artillery as well as other important things such as the boots for soldiers. Due to heat the soldiers cannot be given red jackets but traditional clothing they wear already is dyed red for the soldiers. They also train in drill and formation of European line infantry commanded by British officers learning the language. The two grammar schools constructed in the respective capitals continue to teach the trivium to noble's children. Seeing the threat from Hindus and strife across the border the East India company orders new work begin on a better strategic fort at Modasa in Gujarat and we also start construction of a new strategic fort at Guddu to control the river. These strategic forts will be controlled by Gujarat and Sindh and take around 9 years to build with the defences taking inspiration from European star forts consisting of 8 bastions and surrounding earthworks as well as cleared surroundings but they are small in size since they don't need to protect much area. Trade with Sindh and Gujarat increases as they now hold a monopoly over their markets and trade for Asian goods. As part of the volunteer system, Indians are taken from their lands to New Canterbury and the Bay of Kost to settle and the areas aren't expanded but more people are settled in the existing areas. With the famine in Ireland and resulting migration we don't do anything about the Irish famine since the problem comes and goes but all Irishmen relocating to England are given a loan by the government worth a year's labourer wages which they can repay over 12 years to allow them to fit into the country. England has 5.9 million people, Wales has 0.6 million Ireland has 1.5 million people and Scotland 1 million people. Small amounts of migration to England from Scotland due to enclosures. Transport upgrades are pulled back for a few years as we make the first of a series of repayments to China on the loan we took out. Changes in agriculture continue with enclosures in Scotland and land reclamation through ditches and windmill pumps and the rise of capitalism in farmers as internal markets allow sale of goods within England while four field crop rotation is near universal by now and mining of minerals such as coal and iron which Britain has while goods are brought in from the colonies like sugar, chocolate, bananas, tobacco and cotton for use in England sale to a wider market of Europe but duty tariffs externally are kept high.    
  • Russia: A long expedition discovers a bay with an inlet where the Ship Lena encounters a native people who call themselves the Aleut (this was agreed over chat with Andy being the third to agree behind Scraw and Nate, who btw put his name up on the colonize request, so can you two hurry it up). The ship creates an outpost with the consent of the natives called Danila (OTL Unalaska). An Orthodox Priest from Gorod Vostok is sent to convert the local populace to Orthodox Christianity (Mod Response). Seeing Poland in a weak prospect with their Tsar dead, Tsar Feodor demands Poland cede Lithuania back to Russia (Polish Response Required).
  • Kingdoms of Burgundy, Prussia, and Bohemia: Nova Belgica continues consolidating control of its land. New Germany (around otl Mobile, Alabama) expands 50px east. Maryland expands 50px up the east coast. Seeing the recent death of the polish tsar, Holy Roman Emperor William issues a demand to Poland to return Pomerelia to Prussia (Polish Player response). More to come.
  • Maghreb:Trade: We continue our trade with Europe and Africa as traders meet up in smaller city due to protest, The Maghreb also begins to try it hand at the spice and salt trade via selling more salt and spices, gold is slown down to prevent inflation. Government: The new Government is set up being called Maghreb States,Badr is given Shura power and begins to set up schools,laws,and things of that level. Rasfan is given more of a poetry and Scientific Advancement. A new leader is picked both by the Islamist and Humanist factions and that man is named Faruk Current Event: The Sultan Faruk goes again to Mecca, Damascus, Cairo and Aleppo and Mednia to work on improving relationships with the Emirates and work on creating a Islamic Union of Muslim Organization, this will be a sub military,economic,political Union.
  • Tajammad Emirate: The Emirate works on preparing for the cold seasons by collecting firewood during the summer. Walls and Houses are reworked on to defend the "Ansari" from animals. Hunting parties are sent to hunt down animals and eat them, while some are killed for their winter fur. A mosque is made called Al Hawqk and is made in hope of rivaling other Mashjids. Haush land is given to Tajamidan people to rule these areas are called "Forts". New World food is sent back home to be traded. Our ships begin to train on how to sail the rocky seas to reach the Pacific Ocean and study the ways to the Pacific Ocean. Due to the way of the New World women are given more physically as in helping create the wall or guarding areas. The port (not the best or biggest) of Tajammad is re-made along with ocean defense walls and gun ports made along with 50 cannons. The population stands at 30,720 people with a slow rise in pop. The Ona state is annexed into the Emirate and Ona majority areas are put under an Ona that accepted Islam named Hassan al Badr but some question his loyalty and if he converted just to gain power, Islam with the Ona people slowly rise as a 50% percent in the Ona Population become muslim, as the Ona state is named the Ona Bukrain. Seeing the killing of Tajjamdians the State begins to hold up strong military view as the Emir begins to arm more colonist.
      • Emirate of Al Maqadas: The Emirate is set up in Port Alegre and walls and houses are placed up to bring cover to the population of 17,000 people. A port is worked on. The Emirate begins to expand across the coast by 7 px. More Arms and sent to Emirate to help arm the people of the Emirate.
      • Emirate of Omar: A group of 18,000 men are sent to Portland,where they set up base (bulding walls,port) and trade with natives while expanding 7 xp across the coastline.Most of the men and women there are armed 
      • Al Badr: A group of 18,000 men are sent to Lynn Haven with 2- gun boats,where they set up base (bulding walls,port) and trade with natives while expanding 7 xp across the coastline.Most of the men and women there are armed.The also work on a massive port 
  • Sultanate of Zayiyr: With life returning to normal following the marriage of Aseel and Werababa, Sultan Jalaal again pursues the idea of union between Kiovo and Zayiyr to create the Al-Afriqia State (Mod). We continue to mine large portions of the Water Rock, as the first scepter for Sultan Jalaal has the mineral placed within the circular part. We send an envoy and a diplomat to the Rashidun Caliphate to possibly exchange the Water Rock's (Diamonds) for weaponry. 
  • Swahili: We continue our agriculture policies. The royal guards continue convincing contracted servants. Areas interior to Mombasa and Malindi is colonized. We also send out conquistadors to expand northwards into more northern Somalia. We continue setting up chocolate, coffee, sugar, cotton and tobacco plantations. A committee is formed in the city of Mogadishu on the reformation of the city sewer system after population of Mogadishu has grew past 500,000. Several hundred kilometers of road has been laid as the project continues. The develop of Standard Swahili continues.
    • Sultanate of Qamar: Qamar switches its national language to both Swahili and Standard Arabic.
    • Lakshadweep: Merchants buy a few ships filled with sand and sink them around the islands.
  • Electorate of Saxony: The marriage is a lavish one and it is one of the greatest Europe has ever seen. With the Pope being minister to the marriage it was unquestionably legitimate and very prestigious considering the Pope himself was attending the marriage let alone minister of the wedding. After the wedding there was a massive feast with food from Asia, Africa, the New World, and Europe. After the wedding there was a large military parade and it was announced Saxony would begin construction on the largest Cathedral in the World. Its exact measurements are 750 feet long, 550 feet high, and 475 feet high.

1683

Animistic mysticism gains some popularity in East Asia, mainly around divination through I-Ching.

Champa accepts the military help from Lan Xang and Siam, and begins using it to rapidly build up their own military. 

Kerala becomes a major export of tea, rivaling the exports from Guangdong.

Although fighting has ceased, Bengal's war of expansion is still technically on until they produce a treaty for the members to sign. 

The education reforms allows Poland to adopt technology faster.

Someone in Ireland invents banana nut bread from England's banana imports. This quickly becomes a staple of Irish diet.

  • Rashidun Caliphate: Military and economy improves under the domination of the Jaffarid Sultanate. Trade continues in the east through Gulangyu, and the House of Wisdom continues to produce new scientific discoveries in anatomy and chemistry. The Sharrif of Mecca agrees to help Morocco establish their Islamic Union Organization, centered at Mecca the center of the Muslim world. Missionaries are sent to southern Africa, Southeast Asia, and Laurentia. Weapons are sent to Zayiyr in exchange of diomands. In order to satisfy his wild meglomaniacle desires, the Sultan sends 20 of the finest Caliphate troops on Moroccan ships up the Atlantic coast to invade Norway, a long time enemy of the Caliphate. 
  • Great Iberia: Monterey and Santo António (OTL San Diego) both expand along the coast toward each other. Méxica expands inland northward and along the Rio Grande, conquering the remnants of the Chichimeca people. Nova Lusitânia and Maranhão expand inland, the latter along the Amazon River. Iberia continues to assert its dominion over São Atto and the bay of OTL Ecuador, building new settlements in these areas. (More to come)
    • Aruaque: The native population suffers an outbreak of several European diseases at once, killing many. To make matters worse, the Arawak cacique rejects Iberian aid, believing the Portuguese are responsible for "poisoning" them. The Tupi fare no better, and are almost completely annihilated after the most recent outbreak, partly due to Iberian practices of Tupi enslavement.
    • Iberian Diplomacy to Mzerka: With the influence of the Portuguese language and Iberian culture on Mzerka evident, Iberia offers a formal alliance to cement relations between the two states. Under the terms of the alliance, Iberia will aid Mzerka in times of war and hardship, but Mzerka will also be obliged to provide military support when needed. Another long-term goal is spreading the Christian faith to Alta Califórnia, so Iberia will also be granted permission to found missions on the coast, control of which will be shared between the Catholic orders (Papal States) and the Iberian Crown. The diplomat representing the Iberian Crown makes it clear that no weapon sales will occur unless these terms are accepted.
  • Cambodia: As sectarian violence dies down in the country, we are now aware of a new threat - Dai Viet. Dai Vietan forces are lined up on the Dai Viet-Champa border, and look as if they are ready for war. This would be a devastating event in the Indochinese Peninsula, and could potentially destabilize our nation. The King thus decides on only one possible action: to mobilize our army. So far, around 110,000 troops are gathered up, and are on standby for further orders. We also pump financial aid to the Cham. King Chey Chetta III plans to discuss the Dai Viet problem with the Cham and Lan Xangi kings. Inside the nation, the new capital of Reachathan now boasts a population of around 45,000, with many foreign merchants. The census records a population of 991,000. Buddhism is slowly losing ground in the far north and south, giving way to other religions, mainly Makanism and Islam. Our market has been increasingly used as a regional stop between the Malayan and Chinese markets, and so money has been pouring into the nation, though not on such a scale as Malaya. Due to this, some farmers from the countryside are moving into the cities for a better life as a merchant. Tensions start to ease up with the Siamese, as they share our concerns over Dai Viet.
  • Great Union of Korea and China: With instability in Giapan, military patrols in the Sea of Korea are strengthened. Meanwhile, a fleet of a hundred ships transporting about thirty thousand sailors are tentatively stationed in Dokdo, in case that the conflict unlikely spills over the Korea strait or if the Giapanois loyal to the moderate imperial government ask for aid (GIAPANOIS RESPONSE). Emissaries are sent to Russia (RUSSIAN RESPONSE?) warning not to intervene, while the Burgundians (DUTCH RESPONSE) are asked to provide only non-military aid (such as financial or humanitarian aid) such as as not to intrude in what is the Sino–Korean sphere of influence. In Indochina, an increasingly assertive Dai Viet is given permission to pursue its territorial ambitions in Champa (VIETNAMESE RESPONSE) , citing its higher status in the tributary state hierarchy. However, while Emperor does not mind the Vietnamization and eventual absorption of the Cham people, he declares that he will not tolerate a genocide. Emissaries are sent to Lan Xang, Cambodia, and Siam requesting not to intervene or prolong a potential conflict, or they may face dire penalties. With foreign merchants flocking to Kerala for tea, tea producers are told to focus on quality, not quantity. Furthermore, tariffs and protectionist policies are reduced, lowering prices. Noticing the influx of money brought by overseas trade, all ports are opened to trade. The government continues to construct industrial complexes aimed at augmenting the military-industrial sector, thereby consolidating state power. Internal commerce is promoted, with merchant guilds flourishing. Due to the rising demand in manufactures and luxury goods, and the rise in food supply (due to the implementation of modern agricultural techniques and usage of high-yield crops such as maize and potatoes), a division of labour is made. Many peasants and serfs shift from an agrarian lifestyle to work in the cultivation of cash crops (such as tea or cotton) and the the production of luxury goods (such as porcelain, silk, textiles).
    • Cambodian Dip: We are only concerned with the situation because of two reasons, a) We see the future Dai Vietan annexation of Champa as a threat to our sovereignty as an independent nation, and b) Cham refugees might flood Cambodia and collapse the government if a genocide occurs. We are assured that a genocide will not happen, due to the threat of your intervention, however, there is still a danger of our loss of sovereignity, especially since you are supporting Dai Viet. The King, on behalf of the Cambodian people, implores the Emperor of Korea-China to not allow Dai Viet to expand beyond Champa (Player Response Needed).
    • Korea–China reassures that the genocide of the Cham people won't happen (but will allow the Vietnamization/assimilation of said peoples).
  • Cologne: Archbishop Wulfrich is pleased with the new Holy Roman Emperor’s progress on the courts system, especially the fact that it is to be held in Cologne as a neutral zone, and appoints one of the most learned minds of the University of Cologne to be the Kolsch judge on the panel. The Archbishop is also concerned about potential unfairness of this court system and makes plans for a kind of legal school to be incorporated into the University of Cologne. There are very few academics in this new area thus far, but judges from the Court of Discipline and Holy German Tribunal contribute their basic knowledge to a small committee and begin to write books about their understandings of justice. Of particular import is the recent case of Elizabeth Bathory. Archbishop Wulfrich also invites representatives from other universities in other states of the Holy Roman Empire to join this committee and add their learned opinion to the debate about what fairness in the new system might look like. (Saxony, Prussia-Burgundy PLAYER response please; also MOD RESPONSE please for other relevant states like Austria) In conjunction with the HREmperor, Archbishop Wulfrich continues with the centralisation techniques in the HRE, and undermining of the “Protestant” power in the Northern German region by way of giving scholarships to young men and women to make themselves more educated and reject the illogical “Protestant” stance. Notably, the young people of several generations ago have grown up now and continue to hold the same beliefs.
    • Essen: New Abbess Anniken of Essen is thankful for the Pope’s safe return and makes sure to pray that he is never kidnapped again. However, it makes for a good story, and becomes legend amongst the Adelphinian Canonesses, some of whom are still working for the Papal States as missionaries in the Bishopric of St Peter in Brazil. In Hospitaller Arcadia, at least half of the canonesses that have newly joined up are Seminole people, and they are welcomed into the fold as the German canonesses continue to learn more things about the land in a symbiotic relationship. The education system continues quite effectively, with small spanners thrown into the works thanks to previous racial problems in Burgundian Arcadia. The Abbess of New Essen sends an envoy to English Arcadia offering to bring the aforementioned native-centric education system into their area, if they would like. (English Arcadia response, please) Meanwhile in Tondo, the canonesses continue to run hospitals and schools and universities, and expand their influence along with Tondo itself, slowly learning things about the land as they move across land. The Abbess of Tondo considers applying to the Abbess-General to have a more Tondoese-landscape-friendly design incorporated into the Adelphinian Canonesses’ habit. So far, however, she is yet to come up with an effective idea.
  • Malaya: We begin growing banana plants and exporting them to Britain and Ireland. In the event that a Dai Viet invasion of Champa sends refugees swarming to our borders we set up a naval blockade in the Malaccan Straits as well as a blockade in the northernmost point of the kingdom. Rubber coated wheels become more popular, especially in city centers. They are seen as fashionable and efficient compared to the wooden cart wheels. This increases the rubber industry by a considerable amount. Peppercorns are introduced to the mainland via transplantation, and grown into cash crops there's exporting the spice to other nations. Milk is imported from Korea-China and manufactured into cheese in cool underground cellars, which is then exported. We continue to move inland in Borneo.
