You can play as Iceland as a Crown Colony of Norway for now, independence will come much later. For now, I will let you be autonomous in domestic policy but foreign policy has to be improved by me, I will let you trade and establish a Greenland colony. -KawaiiKame
RE: Papal voting
Oh, yes, I would welcome an alliance against Italy. In fact, Iberia, Bulgaria, Austria, Burgundy and possibly Brandenburg and/or England are planning to form an anti-Italy/Naples Coalition. The Knights Hospitaller would be most welcome in this Coalition. The more, the merrier! In addition, I'd be happy to allow your Knights to have sovereignty over Malta, but in return the title of Count of Malta will still be in Iberian hands, and Iberia will have limited oversight powers on Knight activity in Malta. — T I M (TSW • AH • MGW • Contribs) 09:43, October 5, 2016 (UTC)
Seeds of doom
Attention fellow "Pagan Conversion" Player, the game has finally started, so it is well appreciated if you post, or if you don't want to, remove your name from your chosen country. Thank you – † ⌒⌒⌒＼(;ᄋ;＼)三(ﾉ>ᄉ<)ﾉ ~ ("니가먼저키스해!")
From what I understand, in Principia you want a surviving native populace. Well, a pure native majority isnt the most plasible, however there is a way to make them survive: mixing. I reccomend you have the ethnic groups mix to form something like a Mestizo.
What the hell Red?
Are you seriously trying to overthrow a Hindu kingdom in the South. This was our chance of having a Hindu India. Anyways help Aryavarta keep Orissa and Andhra and start integrating the people of your nation otherwise you may suffer a fall. Stop helping the loyalists.
Hey Red, it is me, Adolf. I was just wondering if you mind being a part of a contract with me and Siam to split up Artavaya to add land to both of our nations. If you are thinking I am playing Arawakan Caciquenate, you are wrong. I switched today and I am playing as the Bengal Sultanate (long story). This will be beneficial to all 3 of our nations. I hope you respond soon Adolf Coffee (talk) 18:01, April 2, 2017 (UTC)
Dont partition it up. Aryavarta is a Hindu nation and you are the other one. Secondly Bengal is at 10-12 mil not 25 mil. This is because of the estimates we are following currently. If you partition up Aryavarta you will lose a higher tier tech ally. Not only that you guys are not capable of defeating me. You see Punjab, Bengal and Siam combined have a pop. lower than that of Aryavarta. The 5 mil in Burma wont make a difference.
I say you help Karnad and take up large parts of Iran and Afghanistan. Drakes is pissed off more at Nate than us. Use this and take up Afghanistan and some other parts. That will add up around 6-8 mil to you but you will remain a Hindu majority. Be benevolent on the Muslims and help Karnad. The other problem is that what will happen if Nate attacks you after the war in Turkey is over. You have an alliance with me, Drake will be more than willing to help. We can fend him off easily.
Bengal taking up Burma will make it a Hindu majority. Burma has some 2 mil Hindus and 3 mil Buddhists while Bengal has 5 mil Hindus and 7 mil Muslims.
Red we have an issue. I am at risk of going to war with China at any moment since they want me to be their tributary. I hope you can support me in this time of possible war. Adolf Coffee (talk) 17:25, April 15, 2017 (UTC)
Re: Anangu kingdom
The thing is, I am right about to start an arc for Australia in the mod events, which will involve a dynastic war that unites the nation together and makes Anangu great again. If you have your heart set on playing it, I would recommend waiting until that arc is completed, and you can enjoy the new, centralized state. However, if you don't plan to play it very long, you could alternatively start playing now and help me get the arc started. I'll leave that choice up to you.
The population of the Anangu Kingdom is about 4 million in total, and expected to be 5 million by the end of the century. The densest point of the population is in the Adeleid Valley peninsula, but spreads out across OTL South Australia territory. The politcal structure of the nation is a series of city-states, each ruled by a Duke or "Bakan" (Aborigine for "custodian"), which have their own military and society. The nation as a whole is ruled by a hereditary King, but he generally has very little direct power over the nation (basically like the Zhou dynasty of China). The economy is agriculturally based, drawing on their main food products of emu, wombats, taro and yams. Horses are used for burden (with no wheel), dingos for hunting, and kangaroos for milk. No money exists, but taro is used as a stable currency similar to the Incan potato. Fishing is also used a lot with small, wind-driven canoes. Outside of food, the largest part of the economy is the sale of ochre.
Technology is bronze/iron age based, and most of their culture and society stems from that time period, including warfare and architecture. Writing is a pictographic language that was invented in the mid 17th century, and so far very few people are literate. No nations border or are known to the Anangu, except for bararian tribes to the north, which contributes to their decentralization. From when I started playing the Ngerrindjeri in the 15th century, their utranized technology spread to other tribes to create the city-states for the South Australian civilization in the early 16th century. In the mid-16th century, these city-states banded together in a league to crush the rival city-state of Noongar (like the Trojan war). Afterwards they fell apart, but that cultural bond helped to establish the Anangu Kingdom in the late 16th century, uniting the city-states in one government. Around 1600, however, the kingdom fell apart into a warring states era that continues to this day.
There is much, much more information I'd be glad to share with you, after you've made your decision. You can either play now and not go very long (<20 turns), or wait to play later and keep it.

PM4: Australia update
Red, just letting you Australia will be available within two weeks from now. I can't wait to see you use it for great things :) Oh, I didn't mean to push that button! † Oh, well leave a message I guess 13:21, May 24, 2017 (UTC)
PM4: Australia open!!
Before you start posting, I just want to leave you with a few more pieces of information not already shared above or in chat:
Because writing was invented by the Anangu in the mid-17th century, their history before that point is shrouded in myth and oral tradition. All the royal houses trace back the patriarch Tjilbruke of the Ngarrindjeri, who reportedly helped found the South Australian Civiliazation and invent farming back in the 15th century. He was also a prophet who founded thier religion.
The religion of Anangu is a polytheistic, traditional faith similar to the Chinese Traditional religion. Just like OTL Aboriginal mythology, the gods who created the world fell asleep eons ago under Mount Uluru. However, in ATL one god named Lord Ngintaka awoke to inspire Tjilbruke with civilization. These gods are like the greco-roman gods in that they are powerful, but not transcendent. The sworn enemy of Ngintaka is the demoness Akurra, along with her minion the Bunyip. The two most sacred locations for the Anangu are the Ochre Chapel in Ngarrinjeri, and the White Chapel on top of Mount Uluru. The clergy of the religion are the Dreamspeakers, who hold a lot of power and officiate the Emperor.
Writing is seen as very sacred because of its mystic properties, and so most of the literate people are clergy. Military in Australia consist of basic bronze armor, with bows/arrows for long-range attack, boomerangs for medium range, and javalins for short range. All the city-states are heavily fortified with earthen and brick walls. I never really renamed any geography from OTL, except the cities which all have no OTL counterpart. So... feel free to make up names for geography.
IMO, I think this is what you should do for colonization: The instant you can plausible obtain knowledge of the outside world by colonists, surrender as a protectorate to the first nation you encounter. As a protectorate, make sure to give up enough to keep your overlord satisfied, but never comprimise on things like land, population, or culture unless absolutely necessary. Adapting writing and shipping technology along with gunpowder would be the best tech to copy first. As for religion, weather you want to convert to the overlord's religion or keep the traditional religion (or some hybrid) is entirely up to you. If all goes well, you'll break free with de-colonization better off than you started. Diseases shouldn't hit you that bad because dometsicated animals boosts your immune system.
