Risk banner 1.png

Risk! is a casual map game by User:Nathan1123 that simulates mechanics from the popular board game of the same name. Rather than an arbitrary number game with heated arguments, as was the case in previous map games, conflicts in this game are entirely decided using methods similar to the original board game, which is largely RNG.

This world is a blank slate, without any canonical history in its timeline. Once you sign up as a nation, it is in your hands to detail the backstory and lore of where this nation came from, including its politics, economy, culture, or even religion. Generally, the technology and society of this world is roughly equivalent to the mid-to-late 19th century. However, the point of divergence for your nation can be as far back or as recent as you want. Plausibility will not be strictly enforced, and world wars will go essentially similar to that of the original board game, with a handful of nations ultimately dominating the world. 

So whether you want to push for a world conquest, or just want to enrich the world with your role-playing lore building, this game is right for you!

Rules

General

  • No bullying
  • The mods are the servant-leader of the game
  • Plausibility will not be strictly enforced. However, certain things will qualify your turn to be crossed out:
    • Objectively ASB or physically impossible actions
    • Contradicting lore established by other players
    • Ignoring game rules on armies or warfare, or attempting to circumvent them
  • No switching nations
  • One single defiance of the rules cannot be grounds to punish players. A player is only punished in the game if their actions breaking the rules are 1) persistent, 2) pervasive, and 3) unapologetic
  • The mods have the ability to change any of the rules by a majority vote
  • If the game lasts long enough that one nation rules the entire world, then the current players will be polled on whether to continue the game

Building armies

  • Every province, either in a player nation or NPC, starts out with 1,000 troops
  • You must have at least 100 troops in every province you own as of the beginning of every turn
  • Every turn, your army increases by troops proportional to the number of territories you have. This increase is equal to the number of territories divided by three (rounded down), times 1,000
    • The minimum number of armies gained per turn is 3,000 troops
    • This also applies to the first turn
  • You also gain additional troops per turn if you own every single territory in a larger region, as indicated on the regional map. The bonuses are listed in the next section. Even larger bonuses are given by owning every single territory in an entire continent
  • Starting on the fourth turn, you are allowed to request additional armies by mod response, completely independent of the automatic increase of troops listed above. The mod will decide whether this is successful, and the number of armies it receives, using an undisclosed RNG based algorithm. This is primarily based on how many provinces you have successfully conquered so far in the game
    • Each time you conquer a territory you are assigned a "card" by the mods, which consists of one of three "faces" and a province. When you request troops, you are essentially submitting the cards which the mod then checks to see if it gives you armies (that is, if the cards have three "faces" of a kind or a full set). This means that you are more likely to turn in cards if you conquer more provinces. It starts out giving 4,000 additional troops, and continues to increase the more times cards are turned in. Additionally, you get another 2,000 troops for any provinces on the cards that you happen to own. 
    • I did not originally feel the need to explain how all that worked, because from the players perspective it works just the same either way, but I feel now it is important people know what is going on
  • You cannot increase or decrease your army outside of these rules
  • You are allowed to freely move armies around at any point to other provinces you own during the turn, as long as the minimum number of 100 per province is satisfied at the end of the turn
    • You can also move armies around after your algo is posted

War

  • You can only invade a nation using armies in territories that directly border it, including sea borders
  • You cannot invade a nation from a territory with 100 troops or less
  • You must move at least 100 troops into the territory you conquer
  • In order to request an algo, you must state 1) the territory you are invading, 2) the number of troops you are using, and 3) the maximum number of casualties you will tolerate before retreating
  • If two nations are allied to attack the same territory, only one of them will annex it
  • If two provinces both attack each other, then the province with the higher tolerance of casualties is counted as the attacker. If these are equal, then the province with the most troops is the attacker. However, if the attack fails then the roles switch between attacker and defender
  • You can call as many algos as you want in one turn, but they all have to be nations you directly border as of the start of the turn
  • You cannot edit your post on the attack if either an algo is made or the defender has posted. You can edit your post moving troops or requesting other algos unrelated to that attack.

Lore

  • You sign up for a nation by filling out the information in the nations section below. The only truly required fields are name and provinces, and the rest, if non-applicable, can be listed as N/A or left blank
  • Technology and society of the world is roughly equivalent to the 19th century
  • There is currently no limit on points of divergence
  • Lore for the nation can include other player nations or NPCs. However, this has two caveats:
    • It cannot contradict lore established by the player
    • It cannot be used to circumvent rules on army building or warfare
  • You cannot either lose or gain territory outside of the war mechanics above

    • Form of government: "The best"
    • Religion: Militarized Wilburism
    • Brief Description: Hourglassea's early hours are murky, but thanks to extensive historical research and revision, most Hourglasseans now know for a fact that their civilization was founded 5,000 years ago by giants who built a bridge to the island from North America out of water, now called the Atlantic. The giants harvested the water from outer space, using their highly volatile digestive tracts to regurgitate the water and create the sea. Hourglassea was then fished up by the ancient legendary founding father Udofyukgefbetelnven the Rich. At least, this is the official story. Regardless, Hourglassea emerged as a verifiable nation only in recent years, under King Wilbur the Everlasting. No-one knows the King's exact age: however, it is believed to be somewhere between 80 and his claimed age of 606. Seizing power many years ago, Wilbur established a personality cult and then founded the religion Militarized Wilburism. Anyone who does not conform to Militarized Wilburism's ambiguous principles is imprisoned in an underwater jail. The Prime Minister, Mary Borr, is the head of the government, and lives with her wife and two children in a small country cottage. Hourglassea is known for their skill at flying aeroplanes. They are also generally considered a peaceful nation, with no great ambitions other than world domination, and they are widely respected worldwide. No other country would even think of invading them, or so the citizens are assured by the government.

Society is still a bit conservative, but not as much as it used to be in the pre-independence era. The national objective is a more or less reunified former CIS\USSR territory. It has a mixed agricultural, forestry, mining and industrial economy.

Those who stood in the way of the council's grand vision were crushed. Now, the council has decreed that all Southerners shall be divided into twelve tribes, and each tribe shall send two children to the center orb for a great reckoning once a year, in commemoration of the Unity...

  • Nation name: Magnesian State of Australia
    • Extent: 790, 791, 792, 793, 794
    • Capital: Dandiri (OTL Brisbane)
    • Leader: Imperial Prophet Maximilian Couture
    • Form of government: Autocratic Theocracy
    • Religion: Magnesianism
    • Brief description: The followers of Simon Magus, called Magnesians, have slowly grown in the shadows of history over the course of centuries leading up to the modern era, largely centered in either Greece or France. In the 18th century, the Magnesians of France took special effort for the colonization of Eastern Australia. Magnesians have always been supportive of Enlightenment or rationalist philosophies, being kindred with their Gnostic origins. Since their independence, the Magnesians shifted their center of power to this theocratic state, isolated from the chaos of the world to practice their own religion under the Imperial Prophet

  • Nation Name: Iron Bank
    • Extent (list five numbers from the Provinces map): 184, 153, 560, 805, 676
    • Capital (OTL name if different): None
    • Leader(s): Purple Council
    • Form of government: Trapezocracy
    • Religion: None
    • Brief description (2-5 sentences): The Iron Bank is an ancient institution that exists around the world. It is less of a nation state and more like a banking corporation with territories and assets under its control. Its military is prohibited from attacking or conquering anything in the name of the Iron Bank, but rather is contracted as mercenaries to nations (player and NPC alike) for a monetary fee. The Iron Bank's currency (the Ferra) is present all across the world, and the organization runs an extensive ledger of every nation's wealth. Each turn every nation in the world will gain a certain amount of ferra, which can be used to purchase Iron soldiers, trade, or pay debts. The Iron Bank remains strictly neutral, and leases its soldiers to the highest bidder, however, if you cross the Iron Bank by attacking it, not paying your debts, or attempting to circumvent it, you may find them funding your adversaries to ensure your demise. To purchase soldiers or make a trade with the Iron Bank, one must send it diplomacy. The Bank will then issue soldiers to your location. (Note: This nation is operating under special rules that the moderators approved of. It's not allowed to annex any territory itself, but in exchange can send mercanaries to other people's provinces.)

    • Brief description: Founded by John II of France in 1351 as a chivalric order, the Company of the Star persisted over centuries thanks to continued sponsorship from righteous kings. It grew to encompass the holdings of various other orders, including the Teutonic Order and the Knights Hospitaller. As Europe's flame of faith gradually dimmed with the onset of the 19th century, the Company's aims shifted from the protection of Christians in the Holy Land to the protection of all good people in need and the aid of worthy causes worldwide. They can be expected to provide military assistance in return for a contribution to the Order.

Game Turns

Turn 1

Welcome to the game of Risk! I hope you have taken some time to get comfortable with the nations you created. You never know when a few bad rolls could bring that crashing down lol.

For anyone who hasn't signed up, but may want to join the game after this point, feel free to post your own application at any time!

As stated in the rules, everyone starts with 1,000 troops for each province you own, in addition to 3,000 troops at the start of this turn.

Right now, we have 22 players spanning 105 provinces, with a total of 171,000 troops. More statistics will be posted on Discord later.

I know the rules say that there isn't any nation switching, but if you really aren't satisfied with your setup you can talk to me about it and we can work anything out.

Ordinarily, mod events will be pretty light except for occasional cultural/technological changes or flavor events. But occasionally I will be spawning in NPC states to really spice things up. Here is the first one:

  • Province 142 is owned by the Crucian Tribes. These are nomadic people living in the wastelands of East Antarctica, isolated from the southern tribes of the Technocracy. They primarily raise penguins for their own food, and worship the stars that make up the Southern Cross. Religion: Animist.
  • Hourglassea: It was a normal day in the Kingdom of Hourglassea. Catalytic plumes were wafting dreamily through incandescent air, and King Wilbur the Everlasting raised his voice to a hoarse croak in the Authorized War Room, to announce: "Recently, my friends, I have been afraid. Afraid of what, do you ask? What could the everlasting Wilbur-king be afraid of, you inevitably wonder? I will tell you, friends, Romans, countrymen, and above all (except me, naturally), my subjects." He laughed a little at his own joke and extraordinary sense of humour. "What am I afraid of? I will tell you. The dreaded Province 191!" There were gasps all around. Those present turned pale. The Prime Minister's spouse collapsed into her wife's arms, having fainted. "For many long years, but especially recently, Province 191 has regarded our poor, innocent little Kingdom of Hourglassea hungrily." There were nods and murmurs of agreement from all around the room. "Indeed," the Prime Minister remarked, and, "Very true," remarked the Minister for the Interior. "They regarded this kingdom with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us. And soon - will come the great disillusionment." "They mean to attack us!" gasped the medical examiner, Dr. Fauci. "But we must strike first!" exclaimed the King, thumping his fist down on the table in front of him, with shattered under his powerful blow. A piece of glass flew up and hit the King in the chin, and the meeting had to be adjourned until Dr. Fauci had successfully placed a bandage over the King's wound and the King had recovered. At any rate, that day, it was decided that the Authorized Invasion of Province 191 would take place. 3,200 troops are mobilized and moved into Province 191 to conquer them before they conquer us. 1,280 losses will be tolerated, but no more (ALGO Requested). A subsequent attack on Province 175 is planned if all goes well with the initial primary attack.
    • The Battle of Kent lasts seven days, and Province 191 falls to Hourglassea. Province 191 is now occupied by 2,700 troops, leaving 100 back in Province 190.
  • Thomasia: The young President Nathan XVIII starts his first term (each lasting ten years) by giving all Thomasians free food, such as bread, butter, beer, oil, and sugar. Every year, there is a festival known simply as the Fire Festival. Effigies of non-Christians are burnt, with he ashes then dumped in the latrines. However, at the start of a new Presidential term, instead of the Fire Festival, the Great Fire Festival occurs. Instead of spanning only a three days, the Great Fire Festival spans an entire month. In addition to fasting and the aforementioned activity of effigy-burning, the Thomasians celebrate the Great Fire Festival by self-flagellating, refusing to eat for days (or even weeks) at a time, and the most pious of the devotees even nailing themselves to a cross in imitation of Christ’s suffering. The President, unless he/she is too old or suffering from an illness, is obliged to do the latter. Nathan spends a total of three days on a cross. However, to display his piety, a week after the ordeal, Nathan nails himself onto a big tree for an additional six days. The Thomasian people are shaken by his undying devotion to the Lord, and they bestow upon him the title of the “Tree King”. Nathan rejects his title out of humility, and asks his people to call him “Little Nathan” instead. Nathan also initially refused to live in the Oriental Palace, and instead wanted to live in a mud hut in the middle of the St. Thomas Plaza. However, one of his ministers, Callie, had a vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary in which she said, “the Little One has suffered enough, let him rest - for he has made Christ happy.” Not wanting to offend the Mother of God, Nathan accedes to him living in the Oriental Palace. Thomasia invades Provinces 771 with 3,200 people, we will tolerate a loss of 1,280 people (ALGO NEEDED).
    • The Battle of Kutei lasts nine days, but the region does not fall to Thomasia yet. The troops return to region 770 with 1,900 troops, while region 771 still has 500 troops
  • Israel: With Abraham Rabinowicz winning the last election the Democratic Socialist party is now the in the head of state for this term. Rebuilding projects for our cities are taking place so we can modernize cities and upgrade older infrastructure that needs fixing. The construction of the biggest Jewish temple is started up. Judaism is doing very well in our nation with people practicing their religion when needed to. The agriculture industry is doing average like every year. More factories are being build to increase production of military and consumer goods. The military gets ready to invade Cyprus (338) with 4,000 troops. We send out ships to start the invasion leaving from our ports. (Algo Needed) In hopes this invasion goes well, we would like to spread our religion to other parts of the world and make it more prominent religion of the world. Secrete tunnels are being build underneath in some section of the capital city for military usage to make it more safe for the people living there. Trading goes well with other nations we boarder on all sides. We increase our ports to make them bigger and more fortified just in case of an attack.
    • The Battle of Salamis lasts 13 days, and Cyprus falls to Israel. Cyprus is now occupied with 2,300 troops, leaving 100 troops in Province 341.
  • Siberian Republic: The 1,000 troops for in each province stay there and the extra 3,000 starting troops are divided with 1,000 going to our Province 441, 1,000 going to our Province 453 and going to 1,000 to guard the capital. Logging and forestry are developed as industries. No one is invaded by Siberia this round.
  • Al-Gharb: amar has fully developing some new functionals with new stuff and else they improving the economy throughout via focusing to modernization the councils has demand to gain more boost and support its idea across the kingdom the agriculture is doing well the militarization upgrade same goes within' whoever more factories are doing it and make more good stuffs, the trades in the kingdom has increase positively commercials thus by that it's way too big the Commission worker of Gharb (CWG) suggest that there need to improve the city and stuff that are up to be improved each years so far as the Monarchs the territorial's is populate and more canal is being constructed and a bridge is constructed to the north at border of the western's Europeans nation to welcome the merchants and throughout interest in market's economy.
  • Frankokratia: King John VII, a young and ambitious ruler of Frankokratia, awakes amidst a dream early this round. In this vision, he sees the Hagia Sophia - the Church of Holy Wisdom - in Constantinople. His great-great-great-grandfather had lost the region roughly two centuries ago when the Latin Empire was reformed into Frankokratia. The current rulers of the city - unfaithful men - had long disregarded the Hagia Sophia, had defiled its sanctuary. Soon after his dream, John VII approached the Greek Rite/Roman Catholic Patriarch of Constantinople - who lives in exile in Athènes - about what he had seen. The Patriarch, persuaded that Frankokratia is strong and stable enough to finally retake the holy city - his see - calls for a crusade to recapture lands lost in recent centuries. Pleased, as a crusade gives the King greater authority to wage war over the heads of the Prime Minister and Voulí (Parliament), John VII mobilizes 8,000 men - leaving 500 behind in total garrisons split between Attica (311), Achaea (313), Neopatras (310), Thessaly (308), and Thessalonica (309). The reamaining 7,500 men are divided into two groups, each of 3,750. The first of these armies invades Thrace (Province 315) while the second, in a stretch of the initial crusading powers granted by the Patriarch, are sent to conquer Crete (Province 312). We are willing to use all men in combat. When pressed before the Voulí, King John VII responds in writing that he intends to encircle the City of the World's Desire, although this seems suspect to the few liberal members of parliament.
    • The Battle of Heraklion lasts nine days, and Crete falls to Frankokratia. 2,850 troops remain occupying the island.
    • The Battle of Adrianople lasts ten days, and Thrace falls to Frankokratia. 2,750 occupy the region
  • Austrian Empire: Franz Joseph I becomes a new king. He is an ambitious man and does mass conscription. Every man aged from 21 to 30 must serve in the military for at least two years. With this new law, the Empire quickly gains troops and invades Province 261 with 5,000 troops. The Empire built more factories and farms across the nation, and also built railways and roads to make transportation of troops easier.
    • The Siege of Venice lasts ten days, and falls to Austria. 3,300 troops occupies Venice leaving 100 troops back in Province 260
  • Chautamvun (Tri-Province Area): It has been two years since the fall of Doofanian rule in Chautamvun. The Resistance have overthrown Duphanhan and had him executed for who knows how many crimes he had commited. Even though his army was annihilated, his family members are still alive in their homeland, Doofania, waiting for a revenge. News have reached Emperor Phung's ears that his daughter, Vanessassary has succeeded Duphanhan as the Empress of Doofania, with her mother, Charlene acting as her advisor. Knowing that Doofania may strike back any time soon, Emperor Phung orders to set up fortifications alongside the border with Doofania. To help the nation recover from the war, Emperor Phung began on improving the economy of the country. There were disagreements with Emperor Phung and his sister, Cangdit about what to do with the army, as Cangdit still feared another Doofanian invasion, however, Phung suggested that, since their army was annihilated, it will take years and years for them to recover and started on invading again, if they dare to. So, Phung reduced the army size, much to the disagreement of his sister, and settle the army to work. As the country sits on the basin of the mighty Yellow River, agriculture is focused on, with levee construction projects being implemented to prevent flooding. Emperor Phung also has plans for the industrialization of the country, as he is in favour of new technology. Phung has the vision to strengthen Chautamvun economically and militarily, and thus begin a Ten-Year Plan. Efforts are made to revive the country’s culture and religions, as they were heavily oppressed during Doofanian rule. So, a large number of Perrist churches are reopened. Restless working of the young Emperor has made him tired and stressed. During the national holiday of Chautamvung, Platyp, his Empress-Consort, Isabel, advised him to take a moment to relaxed and enjoy it, as he was too stressed. Bustdan, the capital, was formelly dubbed “The City of Love”, so she wanted Phung to take her out to tour across the city, but he continues to ignore her to focus on his works.
  • Maravi Ascendancy: Jelani of House Obinyola following a vote by the ruling families of the Maravi Ascendancy has been authorized to expand the boundaries of the Ascendancy into neighboring territories. 7,500 men are allotted to him and divided into two forces comprised of 3,750 each with each group being directed to invade Provinces 733 and 702 (Algos Needed). Meanwhile, House Ezekwasili in their capacity of overseeing the development of non-military technology has begun investment on a promising prototype for an engine utilizing steam that is believed to have an increased amount of output compared to prior steam engines. Affairs in the capital have grown tense due to the Juridials of the Judiciary declaring that House Igwe had conspired against Maravi law by assembling their own Household Phalange leading to House Mbanefo having mobilized the Defense forces as well as its own Household Phalange to eliminate the violators of Ascendancy law. The pacification of House Igwe takes up to a week as its estates are well guarded but House Mbanefo eventually falls with the Ruling Families moving to seize its assets quickly. House Azekiwe has begun efforts to implement a road network spanning the Ascendancy to ease the shipments of goods its assigned to oversee.
    • The invasion of Province 702 is a success, and falls to Maravi. 2,750 troops occupies the region.
    • The invasion of Madagascar lasts ten days, and Province 733 is captured by Maravi. 2,950 troops occupies the region.
  • Millerite Republic of the Great Lakes: During the most recent General Conference of Sabbatarian Adventist Church of God Meeting, President of the Church and Republic Daniel Verdun revealed to the congregation and country that the Son of Man would soon arrive and that it was the mission of the Church, as the remnant church of Jesus Christ, is to spread the good news and the Three Angels' message. President Verdun pointed out the resurgence of Catholic powers and other false churches as the prophetic Babylon. He implored citizens of the Republic to tithe faithfully, be prayerful, and to be prepared for a defensive holy war against the forces of Satan and false prophets. As President Verdun delivered an impassioned sermon before his congregation-state, he became visibly distressed as he fell into a deep trance-like state, shaken and overwhelmed by the Holy Spirit and his conviction in Christ. "Beloved brethren, the Lord Jesus Christ has revealed to this Church, His Church, that we must hasten His Second Coming!" He elaborated further, stressing the utmost urgency the Millerite Republic had in claiming more souls for the Kingdom to Come. "We must go forth and be fishers of men. We must restore Truth in this fallen world by revealing the Sabbath truth and the final days." The Millerite Republic sends its missionary-soldiers to invade Indiana (Province 33) with 1,440 troops. If it is successful, the Republic will send an additional 1,440 to pacify the state. If it fails, it will send 2,440. The Lord shall not allow loss of anymore than 777 in the first attempt or 1,200 in either plans for the second attempt. (ALGO NEEDED)
    • Battle of Gary lasts nine days, and ends with the Millerites retreating with 540 troops left, while Indiana still has 300 troops. The Battle of Indianapolis lasts seven days, and several bloody skirmishes the province is captured. 1,540 troops now occupies Indiana, with 1,980 troops staying behind in Michigan.
  • Antarctica: Huh? There's a tribe in Antarctica? The Crucians are attacked with 5,000 soldiers until they surrender. 819 is attacked with 2,000 soldiers.
    • Province 819 is taken with 800 soldiers remaining to occupy it. Province 142 is taken with 4,200 soldiers remaining to occupy it.
  • United Corporations of New California: Invades Province 28 with 2,900 troops from Province 14 (leaving 100 in Province 14) (loss tolerance 2,500) and Province 53 with 2,800 troops from Provinces 52 and 40 (leaving 100 in each province) (loss tolerance 2,000).
    • Province 28 is taken with the remaining 2,800 soldiers occupying it. Province 53 is taken with the remaining 1,500 soldiers occupying it.
  • Jääʹmไâää'ษבְa: Ꮙäאigmälu ShЇןpᎤjᎡᏬ YЪਗ'Ꭽk'@ЏЏЏl'q'l-ﭏg'ääää'F of Jääʹmไâää'ษבְa from ꙂâЄäѺqääখq'PঙqЧ-ӼޏfᎭ in the name of Ꮙäאigmälu L000gäѺq'juuᏓאigpäät of Jääʹmไâää'ษבְa declares the Q@MᏕᏈbalz's of GuuuhguhᏓ-ä-Ӽ c@'lupperocratistically shall fulfill ᏔaᏓᏐᎬᏒ via Jääʹmไâää'ษבְa attacking LЪᎤäไâäЏאiääไ'lᎭk'אӼ-guhguhguh (Province 194) with 3,000 JษЏlärs (soldiers), while also 2,500 JษЏlärs attack Lq'jg@ᏕᏈਗЇᎡ (Province 197), while also 2,500 JษЏlärs attack אipไäguhᏓ (Province 203).

    • Province 194 is taken with 800 soldiers remaining to garrison the province. Province 197 is taken with 2,300 remaining soldiers to garrison the province. Province 203 is taken with 2,000 soldiers remaining to garrison the province.
  • Republic of Charinias: A normal day on the small republic of Charinia. Nothing of major importance happens, but the mortality rate decreases on a seven percent thanks to the improvements over public services regarding health on multiple cities around the country.
    • Iron Bank: The Iron Bank approaches Charinias with a trade offer, asking to purchase 5,000 soldiers in exchange for 500 ferra. Accepting this offer will also increase Charinias' credit score and will come with a one year guarantee to purchase the soldiers back at a discounted rate.

"**Charinias Diplomacy: Trade accepted"

  • Magnesian State of Mysia: Many years ago was the dark day of the Gigacaust, when Aboriginal race was devastated by White Extremists. You realize 60 million Australians were victim of genocide right? That is why there was The Great Council, when world nations of globe decide the Aboriginals must be granted a homeland. Enter Mysia, land of ancient Australians. Now then, Mysia has become a Magnesian state and follows the teachings of Simon the Great and Maximilian Couture the Spectacular, who the people communicate to via telegraphophonic projection using metal wires. He communicates that revenge is coming to Whites. Weapons must be created in the form of magic airship dropping bombs across the Straits of Satan. Many people die, as Officilar-Seer Vélar Cochléaria orders that non-Magnesopeoples be wiped out. You realize this means Whites will be exterminated right? But first the Great He decided to unite Zincmacjonc (The fabled land of tuberous peas described by Enoch in a holy book or two, Which has descrubed Anatolia in the Prophet-Speak of the Great He). Ahem, 1700 people attacked 319 318, and 1700 people attacked 332, and 1700 people attacked 333, and 1800 people attacked 316.
    • Province 318 (Note, I believe because of labeling confusion you meant 318 instead of 319) is taken with 900 soldiers remaining to garrison the province. Province 332 is taken with 800 soldiers remaining to garrison the province. Province 333 is taken with 300 soldiers remaining to garrison the province. Province 316 is taken with 1,200 soldiers remaining to garrison the province.
  • Magnesian State of Australia: The Imperial Prophet of the Magnesians, Ambassador of the Standing One, Prophet of Rome, Archprophet of Australia, Prince of the Princes of God, Heir of the Empire of the Universe, resides in a modest villa on the shores of Dandiri. Although he continues the traditional claim as the rightful ruler of the Roman Empire, the Imperial Prophets over time have grown accostomed to a more modest lifestyle, reflecting the Standing One's teachings towards subtlty and subterfuge. Indeed, it is a very unusual situation the Magnesians have found themselves now, being the soverign rulers of their own nation for the first time in their history, instead of working from the shadows. Nonetheless, it is doable enough for a thriving society. Members of society who loudly project their affluence, and bless the church with the most overtly hedonistic lifestyle, are publicly honored and praised as model believers, showing only the most selfishness and greed as the Standing One would approve. The churches themselves publicly mock and derride the impoverished and infirmed for this same reason, and local Prophets of each metropolitan take in in the confessions of believers for their sins of charity. The greatest examples to society of this hedonism is shown by the Prince-Monks, who are given the largest mansions and most expensive, comfortable new clothes to show off their affluence before God. It is also these Prince-Monks that are the greatest pioneers of science for the state, as the Gnostic philosophy of the Standing One is based on the knowledge of the physical world first and foremost. Publicly sharing the gospel or any kind of public preaching is greatly frowned upon by the Simonions, but instead the Imperial Prophet dispatches a series of spies into the Island of New Caledonia to secretly share the wonders and promises of the Standing one to the people of Algeorgia (Draf RESPONSE). Along this same doctrine of secrecy and subtlety, the exact finances and assets of the Church are also kept a closely-guarded secret. The Imperial Prophet says to his court, the Cyanittica, that he feels no sympathy for the Aboriginal people who were killed before the Magnesians came to Australia. After all, if they were so weak and cowardly to allow their state to be killed, why should we care? But nonetheless, it is in the spirit of the Standing One's fearful memory that both deception and manipulation is used for the spread of the Gospel. So the Prophet reaches out to the Magnesians of Mysia, telling them that the time has come to reak terrible vengence on the white people, and to reclaim control over the lands of the Roman Empire in the name of the all-powerful One Who Stands, Simon Magus. In terms of military, a total of 1,000 Responditors are kept in each of the five provinces to keep a tight control of the population, rooting out possible acts of heresy. While a force of 3,000 troops are sent to subjugate the lands of Province 789 (ALGO REQUEST).
    • Province 789 is captured with the remaining 2,700 soldiers occupying the province.
  • Greater Empire of Singapore: With the recent victory over the nations of Sumatra Provinces, Viet Provinces and Malaysian Provinces, Grand Emperor Jov fortifies his lands in Province 766, to protect them against any Thomasian Incursion. 2,900 troops attack the province of 772, all will tolerate the loss of 1,000 troops. Another force of 1,500 push north into Province 610, and will tolerate the loss of 800 troops. (TWO ALGOS) The Malaysian Provinces are cut off from their Sumatran Allies, and new trade advancements allow Singapore to control trade through the Malaccan Straits, giving the nation Extra Revenue.
    • The attack against Province 772 is unsuccessful, with the remaining 1,900 soldiers retreating, while the defenders retain 400 soldiers. The attack against Province 610 is unsuccessful, with the remaining 700 soldiers retreating, while the defenders retain 400 soldiers.

Turn 2

You are all off to an excellent start in developing out the world. Keep it up! The fun has only just begun.

As you are all still plebs who don't even have more than the minimum provinces yet, every player gets an additional 3,000 troops this turn.

Say congradulations to T0oxi for being the first player to unite an entire region and a continent! You get an additional 1,000 troops this turn. Don't spend it all in one place.

We now have 26 players, 16 active players, covering a total of 146 provinces and having a total of 258,000 troops.

The capture of Constantinople by the Mysians sends an alarm throughout the rest of Europe, particularly in Austria and Frankokratia. The Mysians may prove to be as much of a threat as the more ancient Ottomans were.

The Isle of Man sees significant flooding this year during the summer, which destroys dozens of homes near the coast, killing 75 people.

  • Provinces 335, 336, 337, 320, and 321 is ruled by the remnant Ottoman Empire. Having collapsed in the "Great Turkish War" in the 17th century, it has slowly been consolidating power in eastern Anatolia for a better opportunity to expand towards Europe again. At this present time, with the ongoing chaos in the Middle East and the rise of the Mysians, they are remaining comfortably on the defensive.
  • Greater Empire of Singapore: Unfazed by the loss, 800 troops join the 1,900 troops to attack Province 772 again. 1,000 troops join the 700 troops to attack 610 again. We will tolerate any losses. Meanwhile, Emperor Jov plans another attack on Province 657, to destroy the last forms of resistance on Sumatra. 2,800 troops march into Province 757, and we will take 2,000 casualties. (3 ALGOS). As the empire settles down, a celebration cry rings through the air. As more money is put into repairing famous attractions, Small trading barges sail up and down the South China Sea, trading with our allies the Congo provinces.

    • Battle of Kedah lasts five days, and Province 610 falls to Singapore. 800 troops occupy the region, leaving 100 back in Province 611.
    • Battle of Jambi lasts eight days, and Province 757 falls to Singapore. 1,900 troops occupy the region, leaving 100 back in Province 756.
  • Siberian Republic: The acid and bleach industries are developed in Kemerovo. The 3,000 new troops are divided up with 1,000 going to our Province 455, 1,000 going to our Province 441, and 1,000 going to Province 453. We invade Province 452 simultaneously on two fronts at the same time. Algo needed: Province 441 invades Province 452 with 2,100 troops and they will suffer up to 1,100 dead before retreating (there is a total of 3,000 troops in the province). Algo needed: Province 453 invades Province 452 with 2,100 troops and they will suffer up to 1,100 dead before retreating (there is a total of 3,000 troops in the province).
    • The attack by Province 441 is unsuccessful, leaving 2,900 troops in the region. The attack by Province 453 is successful, and Province 452 falls to Siberia. 1,100 troops occupy the region, leaving 900 troops in Province 453. The whole campaign lasts 16 days.
  • Magnesian State of Australia: The Imperial Prophet makes some institutional reforms, for improving both the economy and infrastructure for the state. The local Archprophets assume direct control over each metropolitan area of the state, which report back to the council of the Cyanattica back in Dandiri. The laws of the Magnesians are strictly based in legalism, where social conformity is enforced by a set of lucrative rewards as well as harsh punishements. As infrastructure and cities expand into the frontiers of Australia, the Magnesians encourage economic growth by promoting exploitation of others, paritcularly people who are poorer or weaker. Although there is no racial discriminiation in the state, this culture often ends up being at the expense of the Aboriginal people, who are further marginalized from the Australia frontiers. The Imperial Prophet reports to their ally, the Mysians, all the plights and misery of the Aboriginals, but carefully frames it as the fault of the Non-Magnesian white men who should be destroyed. More covert efforts are done to send spies into Algeorgia, secretly reaching out to people for spreading the Gospel of Simon Magus throughout Oceania. An alliance is extended to the Technocracy of Antarctica, to foster our shared appreciation for secret knowledge. I terms of military, 1,700 troops are placed in Tasmania (Province 794), increasing its total count to 2,700 troops. A total of 3,000 troops are sent to conquer Province 788, to unite Australia (ALGO REQUEST).
    • Province 788 is successfully taken, with 300 soldiers remaining to occupy the province. 
  • Frankokratia: King John VII, ever the loyal Christian, is extremely distraught to hear of Constantinople's fall to the Mysians. In the court of Athènes, many begin to question the King's wisdom - but others are inspired to enlist and join the military to fight Mysia. The crusade, called last year by the Patriarch, remains in place and John VII is in command of 9,100 men. John VII, upon hearing of Mysia's pursuit of genocide, reaches out to Israel to request some support to prevent the murder of many people (given that nation's history of escaping persecution and genocide) (Player Response). John VII also extends his hand of friendship to Austria, asking for support against Mysia. (Player Response). Of these soldiers, 4,000 plus any Austria and Israel sends are sent to take Constantinople from Mysia (with its garrison of 1,200 men). The remainder are held in reserve for now, across the provinces in various amounts (ALGO). Meanwhile, domestically efforts are made to reintegrate Thrace and Crete into Frankokratia. These first states, which had a rich history under Greek (and to a limited extent, Frankish) rule, begin to be integrated with relative ease. Industry continues to pick up in Athens and Thessalonica, while other parts of the kingdom grow uncomfortable at the existence of the Mysians.
    • Israel: We send 1,000 troops to join your army in Constantinople.
    • Austrian Empire: The Empire agrees to join the Crusade and sends 1,500 troops.
    • Sorry, can't do anything when you don't border
    • After a siege of 43 days, Constantinople is relieved by the armies of the Mysians that forces the Franks to retreat, leaving 100 troops in Thrace. Constantinople takes significant losses of their own, however, and is left with 3,300 troops
    • After deliberating among the mods, we are only allowing allies to send troops to a battle where they border the province being attacked
  • Israel: After taking over Cyprus our military sets up ports around the island so we can do trade and rebuild the area up. New temples are made on the island so we can spread our religion of Judaism to new areas and grow larger and become a dominant religion. Thanks to getting word from King John himself of the Frankokratia nation for sending word that Mysia wants to pursuit a genocide of the Jewish people. We are now allied with a new friend the nation of Frankokratia so we can take out any threat in the Muslim surrounding areas. As a strong nation we start to move our military to become stronger. The military send 1,000 troops to 333 to invade the area. 1,500 troops are sent to 624 for invasion. Both 339 and 340 get 1,500 troops each for an invasion attack on them. (Algo Needed) Our factories are finding ways to mass produce all kinds of products faster from military technology to everyday household items so that we can get products faster out into the public. We continue to have another decent year in the agriculture industry with normal numbers across the board for growth and sales.  
    • Battle of Alexandria ends in a defeat for Israel, and 100 troops retreats back to Province 625. Province 624 now has 100 troops left

  • Maravi Ascendancy: Following the successful campaigns of last year Jelani of House Obinyola continues his campaign of expansion aiming for an ambitious expansion of three regions. 2,900 troops are dispatched to assault the Province 734 with another 2,900 being directed at Province 703. A final force of 2,700 attacking Province 699 (Algos Needed). With new acquisition of the new territories in the prior year, House Azekiwe has begun efforts to exploit the available resources in the new regions with its resources being directed towards roads and infrastructure for natural resources. House Ezekwasili has started efforts in coordination with House Yar’adua to develop other infrastructure not within Azekiwe’s scope of responsibility. House Mbanefo due to lack of defense corps has dispatched its household phalange to provide security over the region until a large enough defense unit can be assembled to take over the responsibility of maintain law and order in the new regions. King Chinira Iweala has granted Zane Okpara a position within the nobility due to his actions in the initial campaigns leading to the creation of House Okpara. In an effort to centralize the finances of the Ascendancy, House Ezekwasili has petitioned the council backed by numerous smaller houses for the creation of a bank under the control of the Ruling Families that can issue banknotes. House Azekiwe concerned that their jurisdiction is being impeded on votes against and declares that it violates their control over the commerce system of the Ascendancy. Understanding the need for such an institution but concerned about the power that it would grant to House Ezekwasili, the ruling families agree to permit the creation of said bank but split up its shares with 30 percent going to House Azekiwe and eight percent to the other ruling families. The remaining 30 percent of shares is sold off to private citizens and nobles in auctions.
    • After fighting 12 days, Province 699 falls to Maravi at the Battle of Karagwa. The region is now occupied with 1,400 troops

  • Thomasia: With our conquest of Province 771 failing, Nathan descends into a deep depression. For the first time in his life, Nathan drinks beer, which adds a growing beer belly to his otherwise lanky frame. This year, Nathan's beloved cat, Landrew, gave birth to a litter of seven kittens. However, a Magnesian by the name of Nelrim sodomized the little creature with an iron condom. In his fury, Nathan has Nelrim amputated. He is then dunked into a pool of excrement, and then thrown into a pit to be fed upon by pigs. However, Nathan's encounters with the non-Christians do not stop there. One time, a Hindu merchant came to his court, with his beloved cow, Ladesh. The Hindu and the Elder-President had a friendly exchange - they talked about each other's national cuisines, and the Elder-President even praised the Hindu's attire and hoped to get a gift of fine silk on the Hindu's next visit. Things turned for the worst when the Hindu introduced Ladesh to Nathan and his Ministers - Nathan was perplexed as to why the Hindu did not eat beef, after all, isn't beef the most succulent and flavorsome of meats? To him, it seemed like a waste that such a voluptuous and well-formed cow like Ladesh has yet to be slaughtered. The Hindu then asked for permission to leave the Court. Interested as to where exactly in the Indies he is from, Nathan inquires him as to where is headed. The Hindu replied, "we are going to Bangladesh." Nathan was confused - and he could feel his anger boiling. "Bangla Desh? Oh, how I wish I had not discovered you have partook in the grave sin of bestiality!" Before the Hindu can explain, Nathan told his guardsmen to pin him to the ground. The Elder-President approached the Hindu, and bent so his mouth is at the Hindu's ear, and said, "if you repent and yield the cow to me, you will be spared from Hell!" Naturally, the Hindu refused and in an act of defiance, defenestrated himself - plummeting three stories to his death. Nathan was shaken by what had happened, and believed the Hindu must be an agent of the Devil. Fearful for his safety, Nathan ran as quickly as he can to his sleeping chambers, being followed by his maid-servants. The Head Maidservant, Callie, asked the Elder-President why he was crying, to which Nathan responded with "the Hindu is not Christian! He's tampering into dark-sided stuff... YES, YES. EVEN the COW is darksided!" He then started ripping the cow with his bare hands, saying while doing so, "this is tainted - I don't want it. Whatever it is the Pagan has given me, I have given it up to GOD, I am the GOD WARRIOR - and I don't want SOMEONE, with TAINTED beliefs... doing anything with my COUNTRY!" Nathan then shut the door - causing Callie to fall down the flight of stairs nearby, but Nathan does not care. Anyways, the all-merciful and perpetually-just Elder-President continues his merciful and just works. He orders the conquest of Province 771 again with 1,000 people (tolerating the loss of 90 percent of them), and 766 with 6,000 people (tolerating the loss of 90 percent of them).
    • The Second Battle of Kutei is a success, and Province 771 is conquered by Thomasia, leaving 800 troops occupying it
    • The Battle of Pontianak lasts one day, and the Singapore forces are destroyed by the Thomasians. Province 766 is now occupied by 5,900 troops
  • Austrian Empire: After the success in Venice, the Empire is triumphant and plans another invasion deeper in Italy. Austrian Empire sends 3,000 troops to Lombardy AKA Province 262 to conquer it. (Algo needed) Austria also sends 3,000 to Bavaria AKA Province 259. (Algo needed)
    • The Battle of Milano is a success after ten days, and Province 262 falls to Austria. The region is now occupied by 2,000 troops
    • The Battle of Munich is a success after six days, and Province 259 is now occupied by 2,800 troops
  • Kingdom of Libertalia: The kingdom of Libertalia is a kingdom located in the frozen wasteland of Vinland, here people wear fur coats all year long and use spears to hunt mammoths and sable toothed tigers. The capital Rosebud is located in Alaska,where the royal palace lies,the royal palace is surrounded by a huge wall and a drawbridge with a moat full of ice cold water. Inside these walls, only the ruling novelists are allowed, that's why it appears deserted most of the time. The king acts only as a figurehead and the real power lies on the wise novelists who rules the nation. Today they all gathered to order an attack with 2,000 men on Province 4 with a max casualty rate of 1,500. (ALGO REQURED)
    • The invasion of Nunavut is a success, and Province 4 is now occupied with 700 troops. 
  • Magnesian State of Mysia: Magnesian State of Mysia: We do as Maximilian commanded us. The entire army aside from 100 people per province is moved to "Constantiniple". We reach out to the Iron Bank asking to buy 5,000 soldiers. You realize Frankonia is randomly attacking us for no reason right? Why did they invade the peaceful state of Mysia.
  • Kingdom of Hourglassea: Another, very normal day in the Kingdom of Hourglassea passed by. Birds hovered, alert to the distant musings of the recent glaze. In the Royal Palace, birds circled overhead, while outside in the throne room, the King and his subjects were having a small party. "Well, my subjects," King Wilbur declared, "I am very glad with our recent success in Kent. Hengist and Horsa won't be troubling us again!" He laughed at his own amusing yet obscure historical reference. "I suggest we move onto the threat of Province 185." "Don't forget Province 186," added the Chief General, General Cain Herman. "I am not forgetting," the King said, "you, sir, are a lying dog-face pony soldier." The General shrivelled under his Majesty's withering glare. "We shall indeed, take Province 186, too. I notice a substantial lack of Militarized Wilburism in it, and that will never do. I suggest we take both provinces." "Good idea, your Majesty," applauded Mary Bore, the Prime Minister. And so it was that the great and holy Wilburist Alliance, made solely up of the Kingdom of Hourglassea, advanced on Provinces 185 and 186. We attack Province 185 with 2,900 soldiers, while another 2,900 journey to Province 186. A loss tolerance of 2,000 exists for each invasion.
    • After a battle of nine days, Province 185 falls to Hourglassea. 1,900 troops remain occupying the region.
    • The Siege of Devon is surprisingly brutal, but ultimately Province 186 falls to Hourglassea after 15 days. 900 troops are left to occupy the region.

  • UCNC: Invades Provinces 15, 41, and 54 with 2,966 troops each, leaving 100 troops in each remaining province, except for Province 51, which contains 102. Loss tolerance is 2,000 for each invasion.
    • The invasion of Province 15 is successful with 2,166 soldiers remaining. The invasion of 41 is successful with 1,766 soldiers remaining. The invasion of Province 54 is successful with 1,766 soldiers remaining. 
  • Northern Viets: We now invade Province 578 and 579 with 300 troops for each region. Leaving 100 troops for each provinces.
    • Both attacks end in defeat, with 200 defenders remaining in Province 578, and 300 defenders remaining in Province 579. 
  • Antarctica: Huh? Tasmania is invaded with 5,000 soldiers. The rest of the army is in eastern Antarctica formally called Crucian Tribes.
    • The Invasion of Tasmania is successful with 4,100 soldiers remaining to occupy the province. 
  • Millerite Republic of the Great Lakes: The Lord has followed His people to victory. Reassured by His ever-present hand and guidance, the Republic is abuzz and merry as missionary work commences in newly captured Indiana. President Verdun received a vision one night that bore great similarity to the prophet Daniel. He witnessed fearsome beasts that were obliterated by a fiery meteor which descended from the heavens. When he stirred from his sleep, he wrote down his dreams and later presented it before his congregation-nation. He and the church elders interpreted it as God's command to continue the holy war against Babylon. The Church Treasury also seeks to improve its credit score with the Iron Bank as it owns a number of shares in the Bank's investments in the Isle of Man. President Verdun commands 2,000 troops each to invade Provinces 32 (Illinois) and 34 (Ohio) respectively, and is willing to allow up to 80 perent losses for both respectively.
    • Province 32 is taken with 1,200 soldiers remaining. Province 34 is taken with 500 soldiers remaining. 
  • Iron Bank: The Bank takes note of the outbreak of war between Mysia and Frankokratia, and seeks to make a profit from the conflict. It is estimated that Frankokratia is more wealthy in assets, with an estimated 630 ferra in its account, and the Iron Bank hopes to make an arrangement with one of the sides. Meanwhile, an agreement is sent to Australia. Australia is to owe 5,500 Ferra, including a 500 Ferra upfront payment, which will be paid off yearly through a yearly minimum payment of 20 Ferra and 500 soldiers until the entire sum is paid. Debt will incurr a one percent annual interest. Australia will sell a 35 percent equity in its GDP to the Iron Bank at its current fixed going rate. Australia will receive 5,000 soldiers for a guaranteed minimum of three years, in which 50 Ferra maintainence will be paid until at least 3,500 soldiers have been returned (independent of annual debt payment). (Australia response needed) The Iron Bank asks to buy another 5,000 soldiers from Charinias for 500 Ferra. (Charinias response needed)
    • The Australian Magnesians accept the deal
  • Chautamvun (Tri-Province Area): With the agriculture increasing due to Phung's numerous policies, he began on making plans to develop the industry of the country. Chautamvun happens to be having just a few brilliant scientists: Baljug, Phat - Phung's brother, and Phung himself. The Tri-Province Area also have numerous resources needed for the Industrial Revolution to take place. Emperor Phung uses manpower to exploit resources. This year, multiple factories are built, a port is constructed in OTL Yantai for exports of our products. In the Suth, seeing the Bach Viet growing, Emperor Phung dispatches envoys to make better relations, having seen threats from Doofania in the north. (Viet Response) Meanwhile, Cangdit had a conversation with her brother, Phung, and forced him to give her full control over the army. He couldn't say no, because he loves his sister and moreover, she had more influence in Chautamvun than Phung himself, having commanded the army to liberate Chautamvun; and she threatens to tell their mother that he was misbehaving. So, Cangdit seeks to invade Provinces 505 and 509 to expand Chautamvun's borders in light of the Industrial Revolution's needs and the need to increase the country's boundaries and strength. She orders Isabel to command the Firestorm unit with 1,000 to invade 509 while she commands 2,000 to invade 505. (Algo Needed).
  • After a battle of nine days, the army retreats back to Province 507 with 100 troops, leaving Province 509 with 100 troops. The defeated army reports back to Cangdit something about a "Risk-inator"
  •  After a battle of nine days, Province 505 falls to Chautamvun. 1,200 troops now occupy the region

Turn 3

Things sure are heating up surprisingly fast! Only 20 percent of the total provinces are claimed, yet we already have three player v player wars kicking off. Cry 'havoc!' let slip the dogs of war!

The three wars going on at this point are the Franko-Mysian War over the Hellespont, the Thoma-Singapore War over Borneo, and the Antarctic invasion of Australia. A dark day for the Magnesians, indeed.

Everyone gets 3,000 troops, except for T0oxi who gets 4,000 troops.

The Ottoman Empire reaches out to Frankokratia, if they are interested in a temporary alliance against a common enemy.

People in Chautamvun have issues coming to grips with the fact they are now a "four-province area".

We now have 28 players and 18 active players, spanning 171 provinces. Altogether, the combined armies amount to over 300,000 troops.

  • Province 172, 173, 174, 175, and 176 are the remnant United Kingdom. Having collapsed in recent years from the catastrophes in the south, the lands in Scotland and northern England have slowly consolidated back into a single nation, with its capital in Yorkshire. This was the government responsible for reorganizing the colonies of South America into the Union of Patagonia, which borders the former Andalusian colony of Charinia. Religion: Anglicanism.
  • Kingdom of Hourglassea: It was just another average day in the Kingdom of Hourglassea. Crickets watched their flocks while babies devoured meadow after meadow. King Wilbur was busy having an affair with the Prime Minister's wife in their adjoining bedroom when the Prime Minister herself burst into the room. "Sorry to disturb you, Your Majesty," she panted, out of breath, "but I've just received some urgent news." King Wilbur raised an eyebrow as well as several other body parts in excitement. "Indeed?" "Indeed," confirmed the Prime Minister. "We have just had news that Provinces 172, 173, 174, 175 and 176 are the remnant United Kingdom." "Why were we not aware of this earlier?" frowned the King. "I suppose it just shows how ignorant we are of the outside world," suggested the Prime Minister's wife candidly. "Nonsense!" shouted the King Wilbur the Everlasting. "I know everything of the outside world and its history. Tell me, what is this 'United Kingdom'?" "No idea," said Mary Bore, "athlough my great-grandfather, I remember, often spoke of a nation that had unified the entire island long ago in the past. But there was a catastrophe, and it collapsed completely. I don't know how, but my great-grandfather always said it had to do with something called 'Brexit'." "Don't waffle piffle, you bore," thundered the King so loudly that he accidentally activated a trapdoor and the Prime Minister's wife fell out of the bed and into a pit of flaming scorpions below. "We must take on this 'United Kingdom' head on. Prepare my dressing gown. We are going to battle." We invade Provinces 174 and 175 with 2,800 troops each. Losses of 2,000 in each province will be tolerated. (ALGO PLEASE).
    • Both attacks are defeated, with 4,000 casualties total suffered, while 3,400 defenders remain.
  • Chautamvun (Tri-Province Area): The retreating army along with Cangdit retreats back to Bustdan. Phung is extremely mad and yells at Cangdit as General Boofgard comments: “I told her to not make him angry. You would not like him when he’s angry.” However, they quickly reconciled after a few weeks as Phung is a man of his family and thus have to forgive his family members even though how much of a mistake they have make. However, Phung suggests to Cangdit to talk to him and the court about whatever she’s willing to do with the army in the future. But Cangdit hasn’t abandoned her dreams of conquering 505 and more as she believes the land is in an extremely important position. Meanwhile, having won in 509, Phineas rewards Isabel with what he calls “the best night ever”. Province 509 is merged with 507 administratively and domestically, to not make the people panic; this shall not affect the in-game administrative divisions. But having known about the Risk-inator in 505, Phung figures out that this must related to Duphahan in some way. Vanessassary and Charlene must have some connection to the province. Spies of AOCA, the number one agency in Chautamvun are sent to 505 to gather information. Industry are still expanding as we export our products to the world. Phat has invented the first steam-powered engine as this is expected to boost the railway transportation of the country to transport products. (more to come)
  • Greater Empire of Singapore: Surprised and shocked at the audacity of the Thomasian government for declaring war and attacking our rightful province, all available troops come to defend Province 757, the only available entrance to our mainland, which will increase our force numbers to 3,100. Meanwhile, 3,000 troops join the 2,400 troops in Samarinda, making a total of 5,400. We buy 3,000 troops from the Iron Bank, and these will be put in Province 772. IRON BANK CONFIRMATION. With a total of 11,500 troops, we attack the West Sarawak Province of 766, and we also employ the use of Sabotage to attempt to block enemy Supply routes. (ALGO) (RNG?) New forces are trained in Singapore, as new information technology allows communication to be more efficient and quick. We block all trade routes through the Malaccan and Javan Straits to Thomasia as an act of brutal starvation policies. Several smaller trade barges move upwards up the Chinese Coast in search of new potential trading partners, which they find in the Gold coloured nation on what was once Hainan Island. We propose a trade deal, in which we could negotiate the deal at a later time.
    • Iron Bank: This agreement is signed.
    • The climactic Battle of Sambas ends in a defeat for Singapore, as 100 troops return to Province 772. The Thomasians in Province 766 now have 200 troops left.
  • Siberian Republic:: We integrate Province 452 after conquering it last turn. The stone cutting and gravel industry are developed in Kemerovo and Barnaul. Street lighting and telephones are improved in the capital, Omsk (in Province 441). The defense ministry debate over weather strategy focuses on the former Central Siberia, Kazakhstan and/or the Taymyr Peninsula. The 3,000 new troops are divided up with 1,000 going to our Province 453, 1,000 going to our Province 441, and 1,000 going to our Province 452.
  • Northern Viets: We decided to send 1,000 troops to invade Province 579.
    • After a battle of five days, Province 579 falls to the Viet tribes. It is now occupied by 400 troops.
  • Maravi Ascendancy: Maravi expansion continues under the direction Jelani of House Obinyola. The 8,600 men allowed to him are divided into groups comprised of 2,900 men each and launch assaults on Provinces 698, 700, and 701 which is attacked by a unit of 2,800 (Algos Needed). The growing influence for Obinyola due to their control over Maravi expansion raises many concerns within the other Ruling Families prompting them to request that troops within their Household Phalanges accompany and assist military forces in their conquest to ensure that no questionable activities are undertaken by Obinyola away from their sight. The Judiciary also begins to attach observers to military expeditions as a precaution to prevent any disruption of the balance of powers between the Ruling Families at the request of King Zuberi of the Royal House Ironsi. Efforts begin in recently acquired territories to include them in the Parliament which oversees the more trivial matters for the Ruling Families within the Ascendancy and also to see the appointment of regional governors to serve as members of the Cabinet. Infrastructure within new territories continued to expand and develop under the oversight of the Houses tasked with such matters. The development of new regions leads to the influx of those from the Maravi original territories to move out and settle in these regions. In an attempt to balance out the power within the nobility by dispersing among newly incorporated regions, House Ironsi begins the mass elevation of suitable candidates for the nobility within these new regions with the primary concerns for those considered for elevation being financial stability, trustworthiness, prestige, and cooperation. At the behest of multiple noble families, the Judiciary has launched an investigation into the current schooling in place and being overseen by House Yar’Adua due to their claims of false information being taught. It is concluded that House Yar’adua behaves itself properly in overseeing education and that the accusations were attempts to their prestige with severe compensation being demanded by House Yar’adua for this failed ploy.
    • After a battle of 12 days, Province 698 falls to the Maravi, and is now occupied by 1,500 troops.
    • After a battle of ten days, Province 700 falls to the Maravi, and is now occupied by 1,900 troops.
    • After a battle of 14 days, Province 701 falls to the Maravi, and is now occupied by 1,100 troops.
  • Magnesian State of Australia: With the fall of Tasmania to the Technocracy of Antarctica, the Imperial Prophet declares this a dire emergency for all the Magnesian people. After having worked so hard for their independent, public state for these generations, they will not back down to annexation so easily. Furthermore, the Magnesians are completely taken off-guard, that the rationalist Technocracy would be so hostile against a gnostic state. The Imperial Prophet sends ambassadors to Antarctica, petitioning to arrange a peace deal with their leaders. If Antarctica pulls out all their troops from Tasmania now, save the minimum 100 troops, and allows the Magnesians to annex it, then we will not press on against the Antarctic homeland. We would like to send the embassy directly to the capital to discuss these details further.

  • Millerite Republic of the Great Lakes: Pleased with the pacification of Illinois and Ohio, the Millerites rested on the seventh-day Sabbath to give thanksgiving to the Lord and to receive His blessings. Hymns are sung, communion is taken, feet are washed, Bibles are read, and potlucks commence. Every citizen receives a parcel of vegetarian haystacks and free, brand new editions of Steps to Christ and the Great Controversy by Sister Ellen G. White, as authorized by the Sabbatarian Adventist Church of God. During that joyous Sabbath day, the mood of the nation radiated and the citizens were deeply grateful for the sacrifice put in by their beloved brothers in Christ on the front lines in the frontier provinces. However, the emergence of the revived Confederacy deeply troubled them. May God convict them of their hearts for they have erred from the Truth. The legacy of slavery in the South is detestable and morally apprehensible to the Church. Seeking to establish a buffer zone between the Church's core territories and the repugnant slavery fetishists, the General Conference of Sabbatarian Adventist Church of God ordered the invasion of Provinces 45 and 46 with 2,000 troops each, and a loss tolerance of 1,900 each.

The novelist conclave begins by all three (of five) novelists sitting down in the conclave chamber and reading their newest book, this goes on until all three are in agreement whose book is the best,and that person is elected king. in this case, it is Lord Byron I. He appoints Edgar Allan Poe and Jules Verne as two more novelists.

He then sends 4,000 troops into Constantinople (Province 316) (ALGO), to finally seize the province from Mysia. An additional 2,000 men from the reserves are sent to invade Caria (Province 330) (ALGO) by way of Crete. Elsewhere in the country, economic development continues as factories whir to produce military equipment. We also request additional troops (Mod RNG), calling upon new conscripts to join the crusade. These men will start out in reserve for this year, but may soon make their ways to the frontlines.
    • Requesting for troops will be available next turn
    • It was available for this turn until you decided to amend that section of the rules. I'd appreciate a reconsideration, given the fact that you only just changed the rules after I requested. -Rex

  • Magnesian State of Mysia: The senseless and cruel attacks from Franconia continue and continue, despite the peaceful nation of Mysia wishing them to stop! You realize you are commiting a crime against a nation that was created for the VICTIMS OF THE GIGACAUST. 60 MILLION PEOPLE WERE SLAUGHTERED SENSELESSLY BY YOU MONSTERS. We station our entire military in 316 and the soldiers from the Iron Bank in "Cania" or whatever they call it!! WE WILL DEFEND UNTIL THEY STOP! GREAT SIMON WILLS IT!!! You realize the Imperial Prophet Maximilian has commanded us to stop you?
  • Company of the Star: Founded by John II of France in 1351 as a chivalric order, the Company of the Star persisted over centuries thanks to continued sponsorship from righteous kings. It grew to encompass the holdings of various other orders, including the Teutonic Order and the Knights Hospitaller. As Europe's flame of faith gradually dimmed with the onset of the 19th century, the Company's aims shifted from the protection of Christians to the protection of all good people in need and the aid of worthy causes worldwide. They can be expected to provide military assistance in return for a contribution to the Order.
  • Antarctica has 10,400 soldiers station in Tasmania

Turn 4

Some algos from last turn are pending information from the belligerants of those wars. It won't be the norm to postpone wars, it will be more on a case-by-case basis at the mods' discretion.

As you have seen in the rules, starting this turn people can request more troops by mod response, according to the details outlined in the rules. This is somewhat random, but largely determined by how many turns you have spent annexing new territory, which gives you more "cards". As of this turn, there are only six players who have three cards each.

Some players really seem to be optimizing their expansions, and have now exceeded the minimum number of troop bonuses:

  • Gaining 4,000 troops this turn:
    • United Corporations of New California
    • State of Jaamlaasoba (Svalbard)
    • Maravi Ascendancy (Malawi)
    • Technocracy of Antarctica
  • Gaining 3,000 troops this turn:
    • Everyone else

We now have a total of 29 players and 17 active players, spanning a total of 197 provinces. Their combined military comes out the grand total of 373,000 troops.

  • Provinces 35, 36, 48, 49, and 50 constitute the remnant government of the United States. After having lost a devastating defeat in a foreign war, the US government severely decentralized, to the point of releasing many states as virtually autonomous. They openly disapprove of both California and Michigan forcefully annexing other states outside of the Constitution.
  • Antarctica: Huh? Peace isn't accepted. 14400 soldiers are stationed in Tasmania. 3,000 invade Victoria, 2,800 invade south Sandwich 
    • You currently have 6,500 total soldiers.
    • Province 793 is taken with 2,300 soldiers occupying the province. Province 136 is taken with 2,600 soldiers occupying the province.
  • Neo Confederacy: We start moving the troops of 1,000 from Province 62 and moved into 61.
    • The Battle of Montgomery is a heroic victory, and Province 61 is occupied with 400 troops
  • Company of the Star: The Azores Islands were a gift from Sir Edmund Hamague, a wealthy yet charitable knight well-renowned for his honor and piety. An office belonging to him still remains there, and these facilities are now being expanded to create a new, semi-autonomous wing of the Order, known as the Knights of Sir Edmund. Their first mission is to appropriate Madeira and its luxurious wine for use in communion ceremonies (and other occasions). For this, 2,100 Knights are brought into Madeira (634) from the Azores. They expect to lose no more than half their strength (1050 troops) should any disagreements arise with the native wine merchants over this procurement. A hundred soldiers of Christ are kept in the Azores, as well as every other territory, as garrisons. A young girl named Dominika receives a vision of John II of France calling for the French provinces to be united under the Star. She travels to Paris, the grand headquarters of the Order, and speaks with the head priest there, who thinks the girl embodies the spirit of Joan of Arc. Promptly, he sends 2,000 troops into Flanders (231) and 2,000 into the Loire region (226). These zealots do not know the meaning of retreat. At the same time, Danzig sends 1400 missionary-soldiers to renovate the ruined Cistercian abbey on Gotland (208) and convert any pagans in the process. However, they will retreat if they take more than 700 casualties.
    • Diplomacy to Israel: We pledge to defend the Holy Land as we have done for hundreds of years. The Nation of Israel shall be recognized as the rightful possessors and custodians of that land so long as pilgrims are protected as they travel to and from holy sites.
    • Diplomacy to Austria: We hear of your Emperor's crusading spirit and inquire as to whether you might help us acquire Baden-Württemberg (248), which is home to Castle Mergentheim, a site once ruled by our Teutonic predecessors. Once we reclaim this sacred place, we will be able to help our new Austrian neighbors in their crusades.
    • Diplomacy to Thomasia: It is our sincerest hope to establish stable contact and a lasting friendship with the Church of the Indies, a light in the darkness on the other side of the world.
    • Diplomacy to Iron Bank: A partnership between us may prove most valuable. We have sent scribes to learn more about the inner workings of the bank, and, should their wisdom be wanted, advisors with a few ideas of their own.
    • Invasion of Madeira is a failure, and Province 634 has 700 troops left on it, while 1,000 troops retreats to the Azores.

Algo needed: Province 441 invades Province 440 with 3,900 troops and they will suffer up to 2,000 dead before retreating (there is a total of 4,900 troops in the province). Algo needed: (Attacking Province 440 on the second front), Province 452 invades Province 440 with 2,200 troops and they will suffer up to 1,200 dead before retreating (there is a total of 3,100 troops in the province). Algo needed: Province 455 invades Province 456 with 2,500 troops and they will suffer up to 1,500 dead before retreating (there is a total of 3,000 troops in the province).

    • Province 440 is successfully occupied with 2,900 troops left
    • Province 456 is successfully occupied with 2,100 troops left
    • By the way, you don't own Province 422. You meant to say Province 442.
      • You are correct. Thanks for noticing it. :-)
  • Chautamvun (Tri-Province Area): Due to having received false information, the administrative divisions are divided again with 506 and 507 coming together as one province. Our spies of AOCA are ordered to return to the headquarters to deliver information they have gathered about the Risk-inator. (Mod Response) Meanwhile Baljug has been working on the steam-power boat.
    • The spies report that they spotted Duphanhan himself in his secret castle known as "Evil Incorporated". In finding out about the "Risk-inator", Duphanhan gave a long-winded backstory about how he was terrible at the game of Risk as a kid, and was continually mocked for it, so he will wreak vengence with his newest master plan that will make him the greatest Risk master in the entire Tri-Province Area
  • Israel: With our new territory now implemented into our nation, the nation looks for more expansion in all directions. Our factories are finding ways to mass produce all kinds of products faster from military technology to everyday household items so that we can get products faster out into the public. We continue to have another decent year in the agriculture industry with normal numbers across the board for growth and sales. 1,500 are sent to 333. Next we sent 1,500 troops to 337. Each 345, 344, 404, 405, and 411 get 1,500 troops sent for invasion. Lastly 623 is sent 1,500 for an attack. (Algo Needed)
    • Israel is defeated by the Ottomans at the Battle of Cilicia, who defends Province 337 with 2,000 troops, now reduced down to 1,600. The 100 troops of Israel retreat back to Province 334.

    • You do have three cards. However, you get no extra troops this time
  • Maravi Ascendancy: This year, plans are drafted for the invasion of four regions with those being Provinces 682, 690, 691, and 712. Armies comprised of 2,100 men are directed at each target with a final force made up of 2,000 being sent to assault 712 (Algos Needed). The experimental steam engine that was invested in by House Ezekwasili has at last yielded results with its first implementation within a factory astounding many at its capabilities. House Azekiwe devotes resources from the commercial enterprises it maintains control over as the Ruling Family that oversees commerce in a joint effort alongside House Ezekwasili to spread the new engine throughout industries within the Ascendancy. The rapid expansion of the Ascendancy has proven itself a troublesome situation for House Mbanefo who finds that their efforts to raise and equip peacekeeping forces woefully inadequate with the military also being strained to assist in this endeavor due to their constant focus on expanding into new territories. House Azekiwe also finds itself affected by the lack of security forces which has forced it to resort to the use of its Household Phalange to safe keep its efforts with the same problems affecting House Ezekwasili. With the majority of the Ruling Families in agreement with one another, the decision is made following a vote for the passing of a new law that would supersede the Ruling Family Prerogative law established during the founding of the Ascendancy which would only permit the Ruling Families to have the privilege of a Household Phalange. The Houseguard Commission Bill is established which extends the rights to a Household Phalange to the rest of the nobility so long as they do not violate the established limitations within the Bill and have not committed treason or having been convicted of treason. The new Bill is successful in its job with the noble families that moved into recently acquired land making quick work in establishing peace within their domains permitting the operations of the Ruling Family and Ascendancy as a whole to continue less debilitated than before. Within the military, their is a push from some of its officer corps for the establishment of a new unit of infantry for the purpose of skirmishing, deep reconnaissance, and scouting known as the Experimental Corps of Riflemen to counter the various guerrilla fighting forces encountered. They are equipped with rifled muskets and comprised of handpicked men with their initial operations being a resounding success earning them the nickname of Headhunters for their part in removing troublesome problems for regular infantry.

  • Kingdom of Libertalia: Novelist leader Edgar Allan Peo meets with the other leaders this year, in a tradional novelist session where they give out their latests books to the people in a ceremony called book signing. This involves signing their books before the peoples very eyes before giving them to them. After this, they order an attack on Province 438 with 700 troops with a max rate of 600 and an attacks on Province 449 with 2,200 men with a max casualty of 2,000. (Algo requred)
    • The second attack in Siberia is again unssuccessful, leaving 100 troops in Province 438.
    • Province 449 is captured at the Battle of Kamchatka-Krai, leaving 1,700
  • Magnesian state of Australia: The Imperial Prophet considers this a grave situation for the Simonians of Australia. The invasion of Tasmania has ended in a climactic defeat, with nearly the entire military of Magnesia wiped out at the island's shores. This had succeeded in decimating the Antarctic forces, but was ultimately viewed as a failure abroad. The Imperial Prophet had neglected to indicate a maximum casualties before retreating, which may have saved Autsralia from further invasion. This is a mistake Maximilian was sure to never make again, but in the eyes of the Cyanittica this may be too little too late. His reputaiton as Prophet had recently been plummeting, and in these desparate times the church is becoming increasingly more skeptical in his abilities as a leader. He had even left the state in near financial ruin, having expended their excess economy on hiring these troops that were ultimately wiped out. Maximilian was desparate to restore his reputation by military success, but knew that the new forces of 3,000 troops will not be enough to remove the Antarctic threat. Therefore, he throws the military in a different direction in an attempt to expand their resources. 3,000 troops are sent directly north to subjugate Province 784 (algo request). The Magnesians of Mysia are greatly encouraged with the best of Australia's moral support. Some members of the Cyanittica send secret diplomacy to Mysia, saying that in the event that Australia falls to the Technocracy, then the next Imperial Prophet may be selected from their nation instead.

"We must break it to him gently," said General Lewis. They walked slowly to the door and knocked on it. "Your Majesty?" Suddenly, the Prime Minister rushed at top speed through the doors, barging her way in. "Your Majesty! Your Majesty!" she cried. "Our troops have just suffered a terrible defeat at the hands of the accursed United Kingdom!" The King remained unmoving in his chair, having suffered a heart attack several days earlier. "Your Majesty?" The Prime Minister approached the immobile King Wilbur the Everlasting. "Your Majesty? Are you alright?" She lifted up the King's eyelid to reveal a blank, unseeing eye. "Your Majesty? Your Majesty! Your Majesty, I said we have suffered a defeat -" Suddenly she was knocked backwards as the King leapt up with surprising ferocity, bellowing, "My Sword! My Sword! They shall never get away with this!" He grabbed His Sword and charged out of the door and down the hallway. And thus we invade each Province (174 and 175) with 2,900 troops each, suffering a loss of 2,000 each.
    • Both attacks failing, leaving 1,800 Hourglasseans and 4,900 defenders spread between the two provinces (1,800 and 3,100 survivors).

Turn 5

Only five years in, and the world is already changing fast! The global scene is starting to shape up.

I feel like I should explain again the concept of the card system. Each turn that you conquer a territory, the mod keeps record of that and assigns to you a "card" that can have one of three "faces". When you request for troops by mod response, the mod will check how your cards are to see whether you have a match or not (three of a kind or one of each). So the bottom line is, the more territories you conquer, the more likely the response will be positive.

At present, we have 31 players and 19 active players, spanning a total of 235 provinces. Thier combined armies make a total of 396,000 troops.

New armies this turn:

  • Gaining 6,000 new troops:
    • United Corporations of New California
  • Gaining 5,000 new troops:
    • State of Jaamlaasoba
    • Maravi Ascendency
  • Gaining 4,000 new troops:
    • Technocracy of Antarctica
  • Gaining 3,000 new troops:
    • Everyone else

The Franks are starting to falter in their defense against the Gnostic Magnesians knocking at the doors of Europe, but they still put up a strong defense with their Jewish allies. However, further north the Holy Knights of Monkoserbgaria have emerged as the fastest-growing power in the planet, soon to be a new force to reckon with in the Balkans. The other European powers, particularly the Austrian monarch, will ultimately rely on them to protect Christendom.

Upon occupying the island of Gotland, the Teutonic knights of the Star Company hear rumors of a mysterious and fearful race of conquerers sweeping across the Nordic Realm. Believed to come from the most northern reaches of the globe, they have been descending through Norway to swallow up all of Sweden and Finland, speaking an indecipherable language and spreading an unknowable religion.

The Birds of Passage migrating across Northern Ireland has caused alarm for the rest of the British isles, being uncertain what this could mean for either the Irish or British people.

A new nationalist movement appears among the nations making up the former States of the United States of America. This movement seeks to re-establish a centralized, unified government once again, to replace the old and broken system. However, between the four major powers growing across the nation, people disagree on which one will ultimately succeed in filling that role.

  • Provinces 69, 70, 71, 72, and 73 forms the Third Mexican Empire. The current Empire of Mexico is still majority Nahuatl, and rigidly adheres to the Orthodox Aztec religion of the First empire. Since the repulsion of Andalucia in the 16th century, the Aztecs have gone through several iterations of social evolution, which has now emerged as an industrial power in North America. The steam-powered machinery at the Great Temple of Tenotchitlan now has human sacrifices churning out at an optimum efficiency.
  • Greater Empire of Singapore: all 6,000 forces gather in Province 772. They attack Province 766. (ALGO) We see that our former allies, The Cong Provinces, has been united by the Northern Viets. We seek friendship with this nation, and invite them to some of our stock of oil and tin. We also request a few thousand troops from them. (NORTHERN VIET RESPONSE). Meanwhile, the blockade continues, and with the inactivity of the Thomasian Government we are able to extend it to the southern regions as well.
    • Second Battle of Sambas is a success, and Province 766 falls to Singapore, now occupied with 2,200 troops
    • The Northern Viets people would very glad to develop a great, free trade with Great Singaporean Government. We may also made joint military exercise if you wanted to.

Algo needed: Province 453 invades Province 467 with 2,300 troops and they will suffer up to 2,000 dead before retreating (there is a total of 2,500 troops in the province). Algo needed: Province 442 invades Province 436 with 2,400 troops and they will suffer up to 2,000 dead before retreating (there is a total of 3,400 troops in the province). Algo needed: Province 456 invades Province 444 with 2,300 troops and they will suffer up to 2,000 dead before retreating (there is a total of 3,100 troops in the province).
    • Province 436 is successfully occupied with 4,000 troops
  • Maravi Ascendancy: Troublesome reports regarding the Household Phalanges of lesser noble families as enforcers and in some cases, supporting criminal activities makes its way into the discussions between the Ruling Families. In a rapid attempt to clamp down on the misuse of the system, House Yar’adua and Mbanefo coordinate their efforts to bring the most troublesome noble families to court for their crimes and make an example of them. The efforts between the two Ruling Families result in a decline of misconduct from noble families but as a precautionary measure, House Ironsi is requested to alter the Judiciary to investigate and assist in resolving these matters resulting in the creation of an investigative division for this purpose. An engineer by the name of Tish Magoro begins efforts to seek out investors for a full-scale working railway steam locomotive quickly garnering the attention of House Ezekwasili who on behalf of the Ruling Families invests a massive share in the proposed project hoping to revolutionize transportation. The ever increasing campaigns of expansion have placed a massive strain on military resources who struggle to maintain supply lines. The Military Reform Commission is established by House Obinyola who draws upon numerous officers to fill the ranks of the commission to resolve issues they’ve noticed on the front lines. The Commission notes that its success on the field of battle can be attributed to its ability to conduct a war of attrition due to the vast resources available within the Ascendancy. The Commission presents its findings advocating for the adoption universal military conscription to bolster the number of available soldiers, the abolishment of corporal punishment, and reserves for the army as well as the establishment of a Logistics Corps to support the main army in its endeavors. The ideas of combined arms is floated around in the Commission as well as the establishment of a ministry to oversee the affairs of the military which would be more independent of the political affairs of the Ascendancy to balance out the political and military sides of matters but these ideas remain to be discussed and aren’t presented to the Ruling Families for judgement yet. The Ruling Families taking into account the findings begin their implementation with citizens whether noble or not being given the option to enlist with those that do not being eligible for being drafted. The Logistics Corps is established under the joint purview of House Obinyola and Azekiwe since its operations concern both. Corporal punishment is also removed with punishments issued within the military being less severe as a result of the Commissions findings (Note: This is for lore and not actual military benefit/use in-game). The next targets for the military that are selected are Provinces 683, 684, 685, and 716 with armies of 2,100 men being dedicated to each target (Algo Needed).

Economical relations will be improved on, and the vice-president Carlos adviced Joseph about expanding the international relations. More interactions between the other nations are to be expected in the government.
  • The Emperor of Austria is triumphant that the day has come. The day Rome will be conquered by the Empire! Austria sends newly gathered 3,000 troops to Lazio AKA Province 273 with 500 more troops from Tuscany AKA Province 270. The 3,500 troops began marching to Rome. (Algo needed) More troops requested.

Maximilian has withdrawn himself from public spaces, and is locked in his office with only minimal contact to his aids. Rumors of possible deposition or assassination are a clear possibility, with the state Australia is now in. Still, the Imperial Prophet is yet determined to see this war to the bitter end. He reaches out to Algeorgia, the empire of New Zealand, and requests a full military alliance against the aggression of Antarctica. Should Australia fall, then New Zealand would most assuredly be the next target of the Technocracy. (MOD Response). Continuing the expansion into Papua, the excess military of 5,800 troops are sent to occupy Province 782 (Algo request).
    • The invasion of Province 782 is successful, with 5,000 soldiers occupying the province.
  • Israel: With our new territory now implemented into our nation, the nation looks for more expansion in all directions.

We continue to have another decent year in the agriculture industry with normal numbers across the board for growth and sales. Our current leader wins the election going into his second term now. We send 1,500 troops to 404. 1,500 troops are sent to 345. 1,500 are sent to 405. The military sends 1,500 troops to 411. Lastly 633 is invaded by 1,500 troops. (Algo needed)

Their plan is to set up a settlement on the island which will serve as a launching ground for expeditions into North America, the Caribbean, and the Old World. Dominika leads 4,000 troops into Normandy (229) and then Brittany (225). Her prowess in combat earns her the nickname "the Fierce", and she adopts a roaring lion as her standard. The Knights Hospitaller, from their four island bases in the Caribbean, establish control over Puerto Rico. They then move down to the Leeward Islands (151) with 1600 men.

Turn 6

Say congradulations to Firesofdoom for being the second player to unite an entire region! The Western half of the United States.

Several nations in the world have been deadlocked in an ongoing conflict spanning the Balkans and Near East. The Muslim capture of Jerusalem, as well as the Israelite capital of Juda, has caused some increase of morale among the Muslims of the Amman Confederacy, despite the loss of northern territories to Israel. The Franks are on their last legs, as the Balkans are becoming closer to consolidation under the Knights of Monkoserbgaria.

The capture of Rome by the Austrians greatly increases Franz Joseph's reputation towards his ambitions in Central Europe. However, the Pope himself is belligerant against becoming an Austrian puppet, and many of the remaining states across the Holy Roman Empire share that same conviction.

Overnight, the Star Company suddenly loses contact with their personnel in Gotland. The last telegram began with the word "Jaa-".

A mass socialist movement begins in Southern California, which then spreads quickly across many states of the UCNC. These socialist youths demand for more fair government representing the people, rather than the people with money, and a proper wealth redistribution as well. Fairly soon, the socialists and the nationalists clash at odds with each other throughout the major cities of the UCNC.

A man born in Alaska travels overland far out into Siberia, and makes contact with the Siberian Republic on behalf of Libertalia. This man, named Abel Sterns, is interested in constructing a continuous road to connect from the Siberian Republic to the Siberian provinces of Libertalia.

  • Maravi Ascendancy: Work on Tish Magoro’s railway steam locomotive continues with estimates projecting its completion in the coming year. The Military Reform Commission presents further findings this year building from its discussions in the year prior proposing the treaty introduction of autonomy for officers, the introduction of coordination between the various components of the military from engineers to artillery to infantry, and lastly the creation of High Command whose purpose will be to balance the political needs of the Ruling Families with the military as well as coordinating the military’s operations with some degree of independence of House Obinyola. The creation of a High Command raises issues with House Obinyola but Jelani Obinyola who had been overseeing the military expansion of the Ascendancy leverages his influence within his House to lead to its creation. The matter of combined arms and officer autonomy is resolved through the introduction of it to the military academy that trains officers as well as coordinating exercises when possible to promote it. Within the Ascendancy, the influx of resources from newly acquired regions benefits it greatly with the new methods of production from the steam engine.

All these new troops are used to augment our standing army of 8,000 troops, which are all sent in a single battle to sieze control back of the state of Victoria. (Algo request). The Imperial Prophet Maximilian himself is very confident that now will be the start of turning around their luck, and he comes out of his hiding to give a grand speach before the Cyanittica and their guests at the court of Dandiri. He is confident that his life and career will be in capable hands at this point, now that Victoria and the other states will assuradly be subjugated.
    • The counter attack on Victoria is sucessful, and Australia occupies the province with 6,600 troops'

  • Kingdom of Hourglassea: The Prime Minister sighed. "Your Majesty," she said, "we have suffered a defeat at the hands of the United Kingdom yet again." The King, Wilbur the Everlasting, spluttered indignantly: "UK! (The word, pronounced 'uck', had become a swearword in the country ever since the Kingdom of Hourglassea first came into contact with the UK many years earlier). "What on earth? When did this happen?" cried the King. "Just recently... about two years ago, Your Majesty," the Prime Minister said. "This is a disgrace!" roared the King, rushing off down the hallway, though the door and down the corridor. "My sword! My sword!" The Prime Minister caught him and pulled him back. "That didn't work so well last time, did it?" she asked, gently. "Get off me, woman!" shouted King Wilbur, swinging his sword violently and nearly decapitating her. "I'll do what I like!" And so it was that the King, Wilbur the Everlasting the Great, faced the vast and terrible armies of the United Kingdom alone, and withstood them himself. Or so the legends tell us. He would go down as a great hero. In reality, we send one-quarter of our army each to Provinces 174 and 175, to decimate or rather bisect this accursed United Kingdom once and for all. Losses of one-eighth of the army will be tolerated in each province (ALGO PLEASE).

  • Iron Star Company: Dominika dies on the battlefield at Nantes, along with the rest of her army, including several military chiefs and political figures. Following this disastrous defeat, the shady overlords of the Order emerge from the shadows, revealing themselves as puppets of the Iron Bank. Deciding they can no longer entrust the future of the Company of the Star to religious zealots, they sell their souls to the almighty Ferra and allow their organization to become an Iron Bank subsidiary, under the name Iron Star Company. The fledgling company receives 7,500 soldiers as per this agreement (Iron Bank confirm). The Antilles campaign continues, with 2300 moving to the Windward Islands (152). 500 soldiers are raised in Normandy and sent to attack Brittany (225). Nine hundred soldiers are raised in the Azores and sent to attack Bermuda (154).

  • Provinces 488, 490, 491, 492, and 494 constitute the Japanese Empire. Having been largesly isolationist for centuries, the distant line of Yamoto Emperors rules over the southern part of Japan in a tight autocracy, having been recently converted to Buddhism.
  • Northern Viets State: We decided to invade Province 608 with 2,000 troops. With protest in local region increased, we introduced reforms that increase women's right, especially the right to work. Women is a very important part of the country, so we have to give them some liberty. With minorities, we would respect the rights, but not the rights to secede.
    • Unfortuantely, you lost the battle. 600 troops remain in the region
    • (Your army is probably bigger than you think it is)
  • Neo Confederacy: Realize that the UCNC is attacking us. We talked to the republic of great lakes about mergeing our nation to remade the United States to stop the UCNC. (Great Lakes response needed) We also move our troops of 10,000 into 46 which we united Virginia. Meanwhile the troops of 2,000 in 61 move into 60.
    • (Player Response): The Millerite Republic of the Great Lakes, having quietly enjoyed its independence and dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ, is uninterested in the quarrels of worldly powers and rejects the notion of lending any support to political causes such as American reunification. Having fulfilled their mission to pacify the Great Lakes region, the Republic had no desire to expand and was unbothered by the rising ascendancy of the United Corporations of New California. The Millerite Republic refuses to join the Neo-Confederacy and notes that the UCNC offers superior logistics and customer service that caters to the Church's needs. President Verdun expressed, "Jeff Bezos is a man of God and the Church recognizes that he has been blessed graciously. We know that he was appointed by God and we therefore offer our prayers and supplications to him." The Church rebuked the Neo-Confederate diplomatic envoys for daring to present themselves in a godly republic and vowed to defend their land if the Neo-Confederacy made any attempt to infringe its sovereignty. Woe unto all nations and may God deliver His angels to protect Bezos!

  • Maravi Ascendancy: The selected targets for invasion this turn are 687, 693, 686, 417, 416, 430, 746, 747, 749, 750, 136, 652, 661, and 669 with armies of 3,000 being directed at each target (Algos Needed). Many within the Ascendancy note the growing presence of the Iron Star Company in West Africa as well as Benin’s continued hostility to Maravi leading to the establishment of two lines of thought within High Command who propose either crushing all potential enemies or displaying the power of Maravi in securing the regions that it desires as a warning to all who would oppose Maravi’s claimed sphere of influence. The prevailing strategy is a ruthless display of force rather than the complete annihilation of opposition due to the hopes of the Ruling Families that Maravi coexist with other states. With Maravi’s conquest of the holy city of Mecca within sight, many among the nobility of Maravi believe that the ultimate fate of the city should be similar to that of the Pope in Europe for centuries prior with a Caliph being seated within the city and his affairs will not be affected by the wishes of the Ascendancy in the hopes that this placates the Muslim population within Maravi. At the encouragement of the Ruling Families, domestic companies continue to grow with many in the government hoping that they will be able to compete with UCNC companies so as to deny influence for the UCNC. The growing tensions between Israel and the Iron Star Company are noted with much interest by the intelligence service of House Mbanefo with the current decision on the issue being to maintain close observation on the situation so as to ensure that the outcome ends up favorable to Maravi’s interest.

Turn 13

The total number of troops used by all nations in the world has now exceeded one million! 

The economy of the world starts to stabalize as the Iron Bank is bailed out. The Brazilian Empire begins to close the gap in the market with major banking firms in Rio de Jeneiro, and reaches out to Iceland for a trading pact.

Muslim leaders around the world are alarmed by the fall of Mecca to the Maravi Ascendency, known as a Zoroastrian nation. They declare that the Qibla has now fallen to infidel people. Many Muslim states in India begin negotiating a military alliance to protect themselves from the ongoing expansion north.

  • Neo Confederacy: We know that our time is up and we can't fight any longer we talked to UCNC about some Unionist want to remade the United States and they want the goal of a reborn United States to keep alive and to merge the remaining states into UCNC. (UCNC Response) At the same our army put down arms and surrender to them.
    • You now have two provinces left: Florida (64) and West Virginia (46), and a total of 700 troops
    • UCNC: Agrees to the proposal and peacefully absorbs the rest of the confederacy into the Union.
  • Maravi Ascendancy: The selected targets for invasion this turn are 745, 742, 743, 751, 415, 412, 414, 422, 651, 660, and 668 with 3,000 men to each invasion force (Algos Needed). The actions of Israel in regards to West Africa which is perceived as rightful belonging to Maravi is condemned with many within the Ascendancy’s leadership advocating for a show of force against Israel in Province 650 when the time comes. The appeal of the Neo-Confederacy to Maravi sparks renewed conversations on Maravi’s place in the world especially in regards to its nearest rival the UCNC. The final decision on the matter is to refrain from taking any hostile actions against the UCNC so long as it’s actions do not threaten Maravi’s interest or position. The prior decisions regarding Mecca are implemented in order to ensure the Muslim world of Maravi’s peaceful intentions in regards to Islam with the establishment of Mecca and its hinterlands as an autonomous region within Maravi with the Muslim leaders in Maravi being given the authority to appoint a caretaker/governor for the city and the religious sites within it. The talk of a Muslim alliance against Maravi in India raises some concerns among the leadership of Maravi who respond by doing whatever possible to reassure their people that if it comes to battle it will be a purely political matter of conquest and not involving religion. Efforts to prevent religious discrimination within the Ascendancy are conducted due to the sensitive predicament Maravi finds itself in following its capture of Mecca. Recognizing that there are far too many threats within territories Maravi intends to conquer such as with Israel, the Iron Star Company, and possibly the Great Empire of Singapore, the decision is made to cut the Ascendancy’s losses in attempting to reach South America via the Southern Atlantic in favor of conserving resources and devoting them to effort in regions with more value to the Ascendancy. Vietnam’s position in regards to Maravi is taken as a threat that could not be taken more seriously. In response to Vietnam’s attempt to form a grand coalition against Maravi, many within the Ascendancy advocate a ruthless approach on dealing with Vietnam and any state who would take hostile action against Maravi.

  • Chauculvun (Six-Province Area): This year, in Doofania, archeologist Lawrence, father of Phung, Cangdit and Phat, founded the lost archives of the Area’s history formerly thought to have completely been lost in time. Having read the history of the Area, the court noticed that the palace was moved from Sri Lanka to the back of seven giant sea turtles before residing in Bustdan, formerly capital of a dynasty of the old Central Plains. The rest of the archives has been lost. Realising the more provinces the Area annex, the more the central power of the court reduces, as the current system of the Area reflects the old Mandala system in which the provinces received too much local autonomy, a majority of the court's factions opposed the plan. Moreover, Doofania was recently annexed and the people there still hold a grudge against Chauculvun. Phung thought of resolving the problem by abdicating as Emperor and making the Area a unitary republic, strengthening the central government further completing the complete abolishment of feudalism in Chauculvun in light of the Industrial Revolution and the need of future expansion for resources. Cangdit is elected as the first President of the Six-Province Area having gained 75 percent of the votes.
  • Vietnamese State: We decided to invade 522 and 523 with 2,000 troops each. Also this is a message to Chauculvun and Singapore. With connection between countries are increasing, we should form telephone line, both civilian, political and military, as a sort of connection and cooperation. We also wanted to form a formal, equal alliance between UCNC, Israel, Iron Bank, Chauculvun, Singapore, India, Siberia, Frankokratia, Brazil, Australia, Austria, and us against the imperialist state (All/Mod Responses)
    • Singapore: we accept.
    • Maravi Ascendancy: Vietnam’s opposition to Maravi surprises many within its leadership who had not planned for any invasion of Southeast Asia which would threaten Vietnam. Considering the nature’s of Vietnam’s alliance which is stated to clearly be against Maravi which would clarify its intent to take hostile action rather than serve as a defensive measure. A warning is issued to those who would join this alliance stating that there is the possibility that those states would find themselves in conflict with Maravi due to the alliances hostile nature and that in this conflict, there will be no holding back on the part of Maravi’s due to its position of only attacking other nations to secure certain regions and leaving whatever isn’t in those regions intact.

The plan seems foolproof, so the Grand Baguette authorizes construction to begin this year. Also, what's left of the Iron Bank is relocated and reestablished in ISC territory for protection, with new banks being established in Hispaniola, Azores, Lisbon, Bordeaux, Paris and Malta. Monies salvaged from conquered branch offices are placed in carefully-guarded vaults deep within the French Highlands. The Hainan and Curacao branches may remain autonomous, but the majority of transactions will now pass through ISC territory, to ensure that the Iron Bank can always be regarded as safe.

Turn 14

The world politics becomes divided on the ultimatum given by Vietnam against Maravi. Many nations in the world, following the policy of the UCNC, feel indifferent or even friendly towards their African overlords, and condemn Vietnam's actions. However, the Brazilian Empire together with the Republic of Nepal organizes an international committee to discuss containment of the imperialist powers, and how to ensure peace for the rest of the world. This conference, hosted in the city of Singapore, invites many other nations to participate.

[Insert witty comment here]

  • Iron Star Company: The Grand Baguette himself travels to the Singapore to attend the Conference, along with his chief diplomats Chef Boyardee and Monsieur Croissant. The message is clear: The ISC supports the balancing of world power, the equalization of great powers, and the protection of smaller nations. Regionalism is a dangerous ambition that has led to a frightening state of global affairs. We must not allow the earth to be monopolized. The Iron Star Company is committed to bringing peace and stability to all corners of the globe, and we pledge not to trample smaller nations in the pursuit of our aims. The feast celebrating the unity of the Caribbean is interrupted when it is revealed that the ISC missed a spot: the Iron Bank branch on Curacao. A force of 10,000 is sent to annex Province 153; if 153 does not border, they would instead move into Province 87 with the goal of taking 153 next turn.

  • Maravi Ascendancy: The targets for invasion are 741, 744, 584, 583, 667, 659, 650, 411, 408, 423, 420, 421, 419, 418, and 429 with 3,000 troops to each target with the exception of 650 where a force 15,000 strong is ordered to engage Israel due to warnings already issued in regards to the region of West Africa (Algos Needed, note: 15,000 to 650). The Benin War impresses many within the Ascendancy who take note of its ability to repel invading armies forcing the reallocation of assets to properly finish off enemy positions. A directive is issued to all military forces engaged in combat against Benin ordering honorable treatment for POWs, enemy combatants, and civilian populations in an effort to prevent civil unrest and honor the spirit of Benin in the conflict. The Military Reform Commission takes note of reports from officers who had taken part in the large scale organized battles of the Benin War especially in regards their fields of view being obscured by the gunpowder smoke as well as well as the initial use of tactics more suited for smaller conflicts leading to the conducting of a study so as to examine battlefield tactics to best suited to combat against foes of comparable size and skill on the battlefield. As infrastructure in acquired territories is developed, measures have been put into place to assist in the flow of recruits into the ranks of officers in the Ascendancy as well as to ensure standards are met in the education system to keep it as secular as possible to appease the various religions within the Ascendancy. The meeting organized in Singapore is held in contempt by the leadership of the Ascendancy who are not receptive to its occurrence. Maravi denounces the irony of the conference due to the fact that those taking part have declared their intent to not trample smaller countries yet the Great Empire of Singapore has been doing so for the longest time in regards to its conflict with Thomasia which just recently capitulated from Singapore’s conquest. Another issue taken note of is the Great Empire of Singapore’s involvement in the conference due to its place as the third largest power in the world which would make it an imperialist power for all intents and purposes. The conference overall is regarded as a farce with no legitimacy in the eyes of the Ascendancy who only use it to take note of potential enemies to Maravi and an attempt to disrupt the balance of power in favor of those participating in the name of “peace”. A statement is issued to those yet to choose their sides in this struggle stating that by stripping the UCNC and Maravi of their power they’d simply be shackles and conquered by the largest power in the conference replacing one overlord for another with less guarantee as to the benevolence of those intent to disrupting the balance. Envoys are dispatched to all nations who have yet to declare their intent to involve themselves in the Conference stating that if they were to declare their support for Maravi, they would not be subjected or have to suffer the thought of complete conquest by Maravi (Responses Needed).

  • UCNC: After the takeover of the Millerite Republic, Jeff Bezos honors his promise and administers Millerite territory as an independent republic. With slavery now banned in the former CSA, the UCNC also delegates the task of prosecuting former slaveholders to the Millerites, who accept their position with zeal, seizing plantation land, and returning it to former slaves, and imprisoning the worst offenders. Despite the full support of President Daniel Verdun and the vast majority of Millerite congregations being given to Jeff Bezos, a small schism forms with a minority of Millerites in the upper peninsula resisting the new arrangement. After receiving blessings from president Verdun, Amazon Security Forces are deployed to the region to keep the peace. In order to further expand the UCNC, Jeff Bezos orders the invasion of Provinces 802, 805, 806, 811, 82, 84, 85, 93, 94, 95, 11, and 23 with 2,100 troops each.

At the conference, after the Representative of the Iron Star Company expresses their support for a balance of power, Wilbur laughs uproariously and slaps the representative on the back several times as if he had just made an amazingly hilarious joke, to the bemusement of those present. On a more serious note, Wilbur also discusses managing the economy, establishing a sphere of influence for his Kingdom, and the qualities and epithets of garden gnomes.

Turn 15

The Maravi Ascendency has now become the first nation with an army to exceed 100,000 troops. The rest of you be slacking.

We have now had our first casualty, the first nation to be totally eliminated from the game: The Kingdom of Thomasia is now fully annexed by the Great Empire of Singapore. Consequently, the fanatical Nestorian population now reluctantly serves under the largely Buddhist government. 

The expansions of the United Corporations have reached a level of instability, as the conquered religious populations clashes with the pecunary-based state cult. The Branch Davidian cult of the Millerites raises a massive army to seize control over the Great Lakes Republic, and preaches that Jeff Bezos is the literal incarnation of the Antichrist from the Book of Revelations. In the souther, the Ku Klux Klan siezes control of limited regions in Florida and West Virginia, with a considerably smaller army. Non violent riots also exist in Latin America from the predominately Catholic population.

[This is a way of correcting a misunderstanding of the game rules. You are not supposed to be able to acquire territory without conquest via algos. Although the rules can be revised if there is legitimate reason, giving the ability of relinquishing territory peacefully can be easily exploited, so after a long time thinking I decided to reverse this situation using the above mod event].

The Israeli-Maravi War is now the largest conflict in the entire history of the game so far. Although most nations from the Conference of Singapore are sympathetic to Israel, only a handful even give actual monetary support, largely due to seeing the Iron Star Company seizing the advantage to carve up territory in Algeria.

    • Vietnamese State: We decided to invade the Province 525 with 1,000 troops.
      • Battle of Min is a victory, and Province 525 is occupied with 900 troops
    • Maravi Ascendancy: The war with Israel is deemed one of the utmost importance for the time being due to the desire by the Ruling Families and the remainder of Ascendancy leadership to make an example of it to demonstrate that threats to the Ascendancy will not be tolerated and that the alliance of Singapore, Vietnam, and others which have been explicitly stated to be against Maravi will be dealt with in the harshest manner. Those within the Ascendancy who had recognized the Conference as a farce feel validated as seen with the Iron Star Company’s capture of Israeli territory in Algeria and the subsequent lack of condemnation by other Conference attendee’s despite both having attended the conference and Israel’s recent association with the alliance against Maravi. In regards to the alliance against Maravi, King Zuberi Ironsi is quoted saying “They are but dogs barking at the tiger.”. For the first time in Maravi’s conquest, the practitioners of a certain religion, in this case the Jews, are separated from the main population into camps where they are vetted to determine their loyalty and to minimize any chance of sabotage on their part due to the relationship between Judaism and Israel. Many within the Military Hierarchy caution the House Obinyola which heads Maravi’s war efforts to be careful in where assets are deployed too due to the existing presence of the Iron Star Company in the remainder of Africa as well as the ever approaching Great Empire of Singapore. The fall of Benin is received with much relief by Maravi forces with the those that served in Benin in civil or military affairs being given pardons provided that they have not committed atrocious acts against Maravi troops. Offers are also extended to officials, officers, and soldiers to continue their service in Maravi due to the strain in resources the Ascendancy faces with its expansion. As a result of King Wilbur’s actions and position in regards to the conference, a ship of the line is gifted to Hourglassea to replace the ship that had been sunk transport King Wilbur as well as authorizing the transfer of 200 ferra within the Ascendancy’s accounts in the Iron Bank to Hourglassea (Hourglassea Response). Provinces 658, 649, 641, 638, 630, 643, 644, 645, 399, 400, 401, 582, 567, 568, 569, and 424 are designated as the targets for invasion this year. The regions of 658, 424, 582, 567, 568, and 569 are invaded by forces comprised of 3,000 men each whereas the Israeli regions of 649, 638, 630, 643, 644, 645, 399, 400, and 401 are assaulted by armies of 3,500 men. Lastly, an army of 17,000 men total are dedicated to taking the region of 641 from the Iron Star Company which now sits in the path of Maravi dominion over Africa (Algos Needed, note: Varying army compositions). Within the autonomous region of Mecca, there are growing reports of groups hostile to Maravi taking refuge their and rebuilding their strength leading to House Yar’adua requesting that the governor of the region investigate the matter or the Ascendancy will be forced to dispatch its own investigators due to the fact that rebellion cannot be allowed to fester within a region that is officially a part of the Maravi Ascendancy. Guerrilla forces within frontier regions have proven to be a difficult matter for Maravi to resolve due to the sheer enormity of it. The Military Reform Commission has submitted a report, “A Treatise on the Subject of Partisans”, to High Command which is tasked with implementing the findings of the Commission so long as the Ruling Families agree with it. The report notes that partisan forces are successful due to support from local populations and the ability to feed off of Maravi supply lines which have been inadequately defended as of yet leading to the proposal that Maravi conduct operations to win the support of locals ranging from tolerable treatment to providing financial assistance or even tax breaks. To bolster the defense of supply lines, the Commission suggests assigning more troops to supply lines but General Kito who is an advocate for the Experimental Corps of Riflemen of which he sees value in unlike most of his more conventional peers utilizes what clout he has to have the Corps screen supply convoys and patrol along supply lines due to his belief that their methods are more suited to the task of protecting the convoys which are more often than not attacked by complete surprise which would mean adding more troops would simply be a drain on resources with little to no tangible effect but others within High Command also assign cavalry units as well. Other suggestions within the report are the adoption of less brightly colored uniforms with the introduction of khaki which had been adopted by forces in India already which is accepted although some estimate that due to the strain on the Ascendancy’s resources it’s complete implementation within the next couple years would be nigh impossible leading to the prioritization of the khaki uniforms to field armies on the front lines which are facing the most guerrilla forces. Due to partisans being able to snipe officers due to identifiable features such as gleaming buttons and buckles, the officers are ordered to cease their use of such items. Maravi also crashes in all of its cards (Mod Response).

Jovannic Empire is now our fourth player to unite an entire region. He now gets +5 for ruling all of Indonesia. Fires also has annexed his second region, and gets +3 for ruling all of Central America.

Our second player has now been eliminated from the game, as the CSA is annexed after its last stand in the highlands of West Virginia. Better luck next time! In-universe, the rural population of the Bible belt are very unfavorable towards the mechanized industry of New California, and the promises of Netflix and Amazon is not enough to dissuade their resolve.

The Arab Defense Coalition did not expect a sudden invasion of their homeland from the south, as Maravi has swept over the Middle East as far as Iran. All the remaining forces of the ADC have pulled back to the Old City of Jerusalem to defend the Holy Relics of Islam.

    • Kingdom of Vietnam: We decided to liberate and unify Taiwan with 2,500 troops. International diplomacy is at its height of tension. I would ask to have an international conference from every factions in the world in order to respect territorial sovereignty, and also mutual assistance.

      • Battle of Taiping is a victory, and Province 526 is occupied with 1,700 troops

Provinces 630, 638, 637, 640, 648, 649, and 658 are subjected to invasions by armies 6,000 man strong (Algos Needed). The battle of Gao from the previous year shocks the leadership of the Ascendancy greatly due to the casualties of the battle. The decision is made to for the commissioning of a statue in honor of the fallen to mark the site of the battle for years to come. The battle also proves the skill of the soldiers of the Iron Star Company to Maravi garnering the respect of many within Maravi’s military hierarchy. An examination of the battle is ordered by High Command so as to determine the reason for such atrocious losses for Maravi. The Vietnamese request for a conference about territorial sovereignty is denied vehemently by a unanimous vote of the Ruling Families with the support of many patriots within the Ascendancy citing Vietnam’s hostile position in regards to Maravi where it formed an alliance against Maravi ignoring any potential peaceful alternatives than with participating in a Conference aimed at stopping imperialist powers. The current conflict with Israel and the Iron Star Company is named as a result of their participation in the alliance for Israel and conference for the ISC resulting in the inability to trust them by Maravi since they are neighbors.

Turn 17

The Maravi Ascendency has now captured a sizable piece of Iran, the military occupation begins to uncover many lost relics and holy sites of the original Ancient Zoroastrians. This greatly pleases the elites back in the Empire's core, who want to use this to further promote the state religion. However, such promotion of Zoroastrianism is displeasing to the Muslim elites centered around Medina and Mecca.

With Brazil annexed by California, online piracy drops significantly. The Jobists in California advocate for harsh treatement of the perpetrators, even exceeding the execution of the KKK.

The Inner Mongolia region of the Six-Province Area begins producing a new form of innovative pastry, known only as the "Tiger-hand pastry". No one is sure exactly how they are made, but seem to be traded from other Turko-Mongolic people further north.

The war in Africa is nearing its end as the ISC and Israel are driven to their final holds in the region leading to the end of interning Jews or those sympathetic to Israel or the ISC as it is believed it is far too late for the situation to be reversed by any actions. Troops who had been bloodied in the fight against Israel and the ISC are dispatched to India in preparation of a military campaign against the Great Empire of Singapore who maintain a grasp on territories in India and are also one if the final members of the anti-Maravi Coalition to go unpunished for their participation in it. Some within the military hierarchy and civilian commentators push for military action against Vietnam who were the ones that started the anti-Maravi Alliance. However, High Command and the Ruling Families are of the mind to not push into proximity of Vietnam to attack them due to prior agreements with the UCNC and having crippled the bulk of the alliance to where it poses no threat to Maravi with them also believing that Maravi’s war against the Alliance’s members had humbled Vietnam enough. The recovery of Zoroastrian artifacts is overseen by House Azekiwe who attempt to petition the rest of the Ruling Families to encourage Zoroastrianism but many of them vote against it due to the delicate religious balance within the Ascendancy.

Turn 19

The Pope in Rome, the Caliph in Mecca, the High Priest of Israel, the High Priest of Zarathustra, the Jobist Council, and various High Shamans report that today is God's Birthday.

True to his promise, immediately after the Battle of Carthage, the Pope invites Emperor Franz Joseph and crowns him Holy Roman Emperor. The ruler of Frankokratia, still administrating in Corinth and the surrounding area, is no longer considered emperor.

Across the realms of Maravi, various religious minorities feel systematically disenfranchised from the largely Zorroastrian or Muslim infrastructure in the empire. This causes a trend of ethno-religious groups gathering in obscure regions to set up autonomous communities or city-states. The largest of these so far is a group of diasporic Catholics in Senegal, creating a city-state in OTL Dakar known as the City of Joy.

The ultimate decision made is to permit the city to exist so long as it abides by Maravi’s laws and operates under Maravi governance. To counter the religious dissatisfaction for religious minorities, a study is conducted to review the Ascendancy’s policies to ensure that all religions are not discriminated against due to the various religions which comprise the Ascendancy. 10,000 men are sent to defend the recently taken province 531.

      • Battle of Murcia is a defeat, and Province 221 is defended with 3,000 troops
    • Republic of Charinias: The Charinian civil protection has been exposed due to the corruption of the organization, and debates about reforms and restructuring the system has been discussed on the senate. There are suggestions and ideas, some are about linking the organization to the police department and becoming a companionship deputy, or restructuring the system to allow only people who has no major criminal offenses and the limitation of being a selection of a few members that approve with the requirements.

Turn 20

The Maravi Ascendency is now the second nation to unite an entire continent, gaining an additional +25 for his annual new troops.

The Siege of Malta is the largest battle in recorded history now, as the loyal knights of the Austrian Empire defended the gateway of Christendom from the onslaught of the hordes from the Maravi Ascendency. They finally report back to Rome their success, which they attribute to the grace of God. Despite his loss of Carthage, Joseph now seems to be the indisputed master of Central Europe.

The political corruption of Charinias causes the flow of their exports to become more strained, as the ministers of the government are more prone to pocket the newly-discovered silver than paying it back to the state.

Having taken every single province in the Middle East, the ruler of the Maravi Ascendency is simultaneously offered the title of Caliph and Grand Imam, by the Sunnis and Shia respectively.

After the collapse of the Brazilian Empire, the formally vassalized tribes of the Xiu people organized into a newly-independent state in the heart of the Amazon forest, creating the Province 100 on the map.

Turn 21

The Iron Star Company falls back from their expulsion from America and Africa back to their original base of operation in Europe, under the dual patronage of the King of France and the Duke of Danzig. The company suffers severe financial trouble, which is largely bailed out from loans from these two benefactors. They also go to the ruler of Austria and give their respect, in light of his recent victories in Italy, in the hopes of saving Europe from other threats to Christendom altogether.

A large earthquake strikes San Francisco, equally threatening the lives of the common people there and the raw assets of California's conglomerate companies.

The Battle of Serampore goes on for over 400 days, but by early this next year it ends in a victory for Maravi. Province 587 is now occupied with 9,400 troops.

  • The Great Kingdom of Hourglassea: King Wilbur the Great, the Everlasting Monarch of the Great Kingdom of Hourglassea passed away at 3am yesterday morning... The King looked up from his newspaper's obituary column. "What is this rubbish? I am in perfectly good health." "Indeed," sighed the Prime Minister, Mary Bore, "rumours of your death have been greatly exaggerated. I wouldn't trust that newspaper. They called you and the Kingdom of Hourglassea a 'sloppy mess' and an 'unmitigated failure'." The King sprang up: "This means war! We must invade Province 177!" "Are you sure that is wise, Your Majesty?" cautioned the Prime Minister. "Remember to think before you--" "With all our troops!" shouted the King Wilbur the Everlasting. "We must wipe out those aves of transit before they wipe us out!" "Indeed?" sighed the Prime Minister. The King was in full flow. "They are coming over here, stealing our jobs, raping our women, excreting on our heads... they circle our hapless Kingdom like vultures... but we must fight back! They are as proud as peacocks, yet not so peace-loving as doves... they are as dangerous as cassowaries... and, er... but we will eat them like turkeys on Christmas Day! Or Thanksgiving... And we will!..." And so it was, several hours (or was it days?) later, when the King had finished his rousing speech, and then his cup of tea, that the Great Kingdom of Hourglassea moved their entire available army into Province 177 to conquer it.
