The Restoration of Sukhothai Chapter Thirty-Three – Integration of the Soul


1 Oct – My theologian advisor passes. Next? I recruit another after securing one from my monasteries.

1 Jan, 1600 – The Global Trade institution begins. The Age of Reformation will end in 10 years

I pull my colonists from Matsolo and send them to New Zealand, where I have two colonies working. These are heading to Whangarei

1 April –

I can enact the next government reform.

I could become a Republic or a Theocracy.

However, what I really want is Political Absolutism, which will help in the next Age

I order some more folks on the border with Bengal. I want to get up to 60k. They have 66k troops, so any attempt to crack 60k on the border will not be easy for them.

22 April –

Our ruler passes!

Emperor Thammaracha VII will rule now. He is 3/5/5 with the Incorruptible trait.

Dai Viet’s Xiaoyuan is our new Queen

1 June – Tauranga in New Zealand will be great for raising Livestock.

1 August – Rebellion in Sulu

11 Aug – No longer

1 April, 1601 – Rebellion in Tarakan.

22 April – Taken down

6 June – We get an event for investment in the military. I choose to spend it in the navy and we get hundreds of DIP power. With this boost we should get our next DIP investment in 1603. ADM is next year, and I’ve been saving money for it

1 July – Everything but Sulu and Bulungan are now cores.

25 Aug – The Growth of the Perfume Industry has happened, and Incense increases in value on the market. Nice boost

1 Oct – Bulungan is now a core. I order a Naval Equipment in Kutai, and hand them a seat in Parliament

1 Nov – Matsolo – Fish, 10 dev, Jungle, African coast, 0.15 made here

1 April, 1502 – Admin 16 - We can now build Mills!

Mills are Manufactories for Gems, Chinaware, Paper, Glass, Tropical Wood. They are cheaper.

I have a bunch of Mills coming up – we’ll start with Gems:

Nakhone Thung Yai
Ava
Kendari
Kuching
Swellendam
Xhosa

These two Chinaware Provinces:

Sukhothai
Johor

I am currently getting around 80 in cash a month, so I should still be rocking two a year (they cost less due to ideas and such)

The Tropical Wood ones cost 100 fewer gold, so I can make 3 a year with them (all constructions in lumber provinces cost fewer to build)

1 June – Kirikirikoa in New Zealand is also going to rock Livestock

1 July – Whangarei is with Grain

1 Aug – Inhambane – Jungle, 10 dev, natural harbor, Nguni and Fetishist people here, next to Mutapa. 0.09 made here

8 Nov – Sulu is now cored!

1 Jan, 1603 – Claims on Ternate and Tidore are off.

Palawan converts = next is Berau

We get news that the UK finished circumnavigating around the world

1 June – DIP TECH 15 – We get improved trade range and such

17 July - I pull our colonists in Tauranga and send them to Taranaki, which is next to it

1 January, 1604 – We prepare for war against Buton and their ally Tidore.

We order Manufactories in:

Kalapa
Taungoo
Siak
Banten
Pakuan
Palawan

7 March – Berau converts and next is Samarinda

15 May – We claim Tidore, and declare war against Buton. I choose Tidore as a co-belligerent, so their allies can join, but it should be easier for us to lock stuff down.

I order my army in Sulaesi into Buton. I also have an army in Halmahera that has a strait for Tidore I send over

1 June – Tauranga – Highlands, Livestock, 13 dev, Thai and Buddhists here, 0.34 made here and I order up a Farm Estate

7 June – We rout the army in Buton and begin that siege

5 July – We defeat the army in Tidore. They are alive so I chase them back to Halmahera

22 Aug – We rout their army

16 Sept – We begin to siege Tidore.

17 Jan, 1605 – Tidore falls

10 Feb – Buton follows

22 Feb – We defeat the Butoni navy and gain some ships




We can take both off the map. I also zoomed into my cash so you can follow the detail, should you care

Buton – Spices, coastline, island chain off Sulawesi that’s a part of the state I have, and has a crossed to Kendari. Sulawesi culture and Animist faith. Shipyard, temple, workshop, I destroy the shipyard so I can have space for a Plantation later. 0.27 made here.

Tidore
– 18 dev, islands near Halmahera with a crossed to that island, Spices, Animist and Moluccan, dock, shipyard, and workshop here, 0.34 made for us. I destroy the dock and ‘yard to prepare for Temple and Plantation later.

I’ll leave my armies here to help keep folks quelled.
