Event: Religious Uproar
According to the governor of Urgench, the citizens are in an uproar because of our missionaries' complete lack of respect for any religious practices or traditions different from their own.

The Georgian Conquest of Ankara
The vile Ottomans are under siege in their western provinces by an ambitious Doge of Venice. Even Constantinople has fallen. The Ottoman navy is a shell of it former self, the army less than that. The glories of a once proud Sultanate are starting to collapse to the powers of Europe.

From his throne, the now 69 year old King Giorgi VIII smiles. He has accomplished much in his 53 years leading Georgia, now he feels the chance to strike another blow against his western neighbors along the Turkic peninsula. Bolu, Kocaeli, Ankara, Bozok, Kayseri and Malatya are all provinces that Giorgi has ordered claims to fabricated against. He knew this moment would come, he had only hoped he would live to see it.

The troops are massed and ready. The 1st Army in Kastamonu, the 2nd Army in Amasya and the 3rd Army marching for Sivas. The Georgian navy sits in the Sea of Marmara ready to blockade the staits connecting Edirne and Constantinople from Biga and Kocael. King Giorgi VIII's golden moment has arrived.

War has been declared, the Casus Belli is the conquest of Ankara.

Ankara, Bozok and Malatya are under siege.

November 1601
King Giorgi VIII has died!

Rise of a Pretender!
The disputed succession of Luarsab has caused a Pretender to raise an army and march for the capital!

9 Pretender regiments rise up in revolt in Imereti, believing that Luarsab's weak claim the throne is highly disputable! Giorgi Tsereteli who styles himself Giorgi IX has laid claim to the throne!

Royal Marriages with Wallachia, Hungary, Muscovy, Spain and Commonwealth have been sealed once more.

Military Technology Advance: Trunnions (13)
The new and more mobile artillery had one problem – it could not be easily elevated up and down to adjust its firing range. Trunnions were cylindrical protrusions that acted as mounts for the gun on its carriage, which allowed it to be tilted and thus aimed better.

Bonus Effect: Artillery Fire +0.40, Artillery Shock +0.10, Enables Small and Large Cast Iron Cannon, can now build Regimental Camp

December 1601
Event: Struggle Without, Struggle Without

Event: State Appointed Lay Members?

The Regency Council decides to appoint the lay members. -5 Patriarchal Authority (0), +50 administrative power.

November 1602
Economic Ideas Advance: Centralization
If we centralize the state then we will find it easier to advance the ideas and agenda of the center over the regions.

Bonus Effect: +1 Possible Advisor

Event: The Sweating Sickness Spreads Through Kartli
A virulent disease that kills peasants, clergy, merchants and nobles within hours of infection spreads quickly through the capital, creating widespread panic and death.

Event: Tensions Along the Trebizond Border
Borders are organic things, changing and mutating with the seasons, and with the fortunes of the latest conqueror passing by. Historians will, perhaps, say that the events that transpired in Trebizond in that year of our lord 1605, were inevitable. 'As Trebizond continued to flourish under the benevolent rule of Georgia, the yokels on the other side of the border were bound to get jealous.' Perhaps they will be less fair to us.

The Georgian Conquest of Van
If there's anything that King Erekle's predecessors didn't do that he has aspired to, it is to take the fight to Qara Qoyunlu, who have long been a bastion of safety for the Shia sect of Islam directly south of the Georgian border.

Off and on for nearly 170 years Armenian patriots have attempted to rise up to take their provinces back from the Qara Qoyunlu horde, but have failed every time. King Erekle has read the histories and feels the plight of the Armenians, being forced to live among a people that oppress them. However, King Erekle does not wish to free the Armenians as a sovereign nation, he wishes to take their provinces and integrate them into Georgia, making them free citizens and giving them the same liberties as his own Georgian people have.

Qara Qoyunlu has been a powerful entity in the middle east. They have multiple vassals: Haasa, Aq Qoyunlu, Tabarestan, Shammar and Shivran. They have had a strong alliance with Golden Horde, an enemy that King Erekle's forefathers were quite familiar with, for nearly 150 years. It is the appeal of moving south into Qara Qoyunlu's territory that sparked Erekle to form an alliance with the Egyptian Mamluks.

King Erekle has called upon his banners. The 1st Army in Samtskhe, the 2nd Army in Khundzia and the 3rd Army in Sivas. The Commonwealth, Muscovy and his new allies, the Mamluks have agreed to join the war.



February 1611
The 1st Army arrives in Van, while the 3rd Army sieges Erzincan and the 2nd Army battles in Shirvan.

May 1611
After a shocking loss in Shirvan by combined Shirvan and Qara Qoyunlu forces, the 2nd Army has retreated to Crimea. The 1st Army left Van to track down the Shirvan Army in the Georgian province of Khundzia.

Aq Qoyunlu has also been integrated by Qara Qoyunlu.

Event: Successful Bureaucracy
An empire of this size needs a lot of bureaucrats, perhaps offering a sign up bonus will encourage their numbers to grow.

King Erekle decides to do whatever it takes. -163.03 ducats, +50 administrative power

Military Technology Advance: Tenaille (14)
It was difficult to fire around curved walls, thus once attackers got close enough to the fortification, the ability of other parts of the defenses to provide flanking fire was nullified. The development of star-shaped bastions allowed every part of a wall to be supported from other parts.

Bonus Effect: Combat Width +2, Infantry Fire +0.50, Enables Reformed Eastern Hussars, Eastern Caracole and Southern Cossacks, can now build Tenaille.

Economic Ideas Advance: Nationalistic Enthusiasm
The supporting of our troops is vital to national defense. With our excellent administration we are able to secure generous discounts for our supplies.

Bonus Effect: Land Maintenance Modifier -10%

October 1611
We have won the siege of Erzincan after 248 days.

Our armies are struggling to cope with smaller detachments from Qara Qoyunlu.

Event: Growth of Cities attracts Serfs

Our peasants are tired of our war and our soldiers are exhausted. This may have some reprecussions on our ability to finish this way in a positive way.

+2.00 war exhaustion.

February 1615
Event: The Weeping Song
The war has taken a heavy toll upon the mothers and wives of our nation, and as you pass this ragged old widow where she sits, her faced buried deep in her palmed hands, your heir asks: 'Oh Father, why are all the women weeping?'

King Erekle tells young Giorgi that they are all weeping for their men.

-40.00 ducats, -2.00 war exhaustion.

April 1616
We spend 125 administrative power to raise stability to +2.

May 1616
Event: National Bank Pays Dividends
Several shrewd loans have led to very good profits at our National Bank. The bank is hiking its dividend and buying back some of its shares.

+80.68 ducats

September 1616
After 421 days we have won the siege of Shirvan.

It should be noted, that despite the lack of updates month to month, Muscovy and the Commonwealth have been taking Qara Qoyunlu provinces left and right. We are slowly but surely wearing them down.

December 1616
Event: Land Technology Research Useless
Several prominent men in our country are pointing out that the path we are going when it comes to army research is utterly foolish and will amount to nothing. They demand that we stop the current approach and stick with what was good enough for our fathers.

King Erekle ignores them. -10 Prestige (86)

Really enjoying this thread. It's actually got me into EU IV. I've had it for a while and tried several times to get into it but just been overwhelemed by it all and not really understanding what/how to do everything. Having read this, gave it another try and am finally getting my head around it. Started a game as Castille with moderate success before finding a mod that stretches from 50ad to 9999ad which I have begun as the Mongols.

So thanks for posting all this, it's got me well and truly addicted

Started a game as Castille with moderate success before finding a mod that stretches from 50ad to 9999ad which I have begun as the Mongols.

So thanks for posting all this, it's got me well and truly addicted

Awesome to hear! Good luck to you and thanks for following along!

The Georgian Conquest of Konya
Following in the footsteps of his father, King Erekle finished off a very successful first campaign against the Ottomans. A long truce, sandwiched with a very successful war against Qara Qoyunlu, leads the 25 year old king to another potential war with Ottomans. Their peace treaty ended in 1619 and the Ottomans are allies with Tunis and Georgia's own historically long-term rival Golden Horde.

Boasting a stronger military and navy than both rival countries combined, King Erekle has ordered his 2nd and 3rd Armies to the Ottoman border, while the 1st Army camps in Sarai along the Golden Horde border.

December 1626
Event: United in Prayer
Erekle I Bagrationi, being a man of faith, has found an unusually personal way of creating trust and ensuring loyalty. When meeting another Orthodox ruler in person, he will often ask them to pray together for their common goals. While perhaps forsaking some of the distance sometimes needed in diplomacy, it can create stronger bonds than any formal agreement. He has considered employing this method again on an upcoming visit to a foreign capital, although it is not certain if it will be successful.

Erekle I decides that souls, not only minds, must unite for true trust to be formed.

The Georgian Conquest of Agyidel
King Erekle has had new thoughts in recent months. If his army can cut a swath through Uzbek, there are vast uncolonized lands to the north and east in Sibera. Erekle has grand machinations on creating a glorious Georgia that runs from the Black Sea to the so-called Pacific Sea past Ming and Japan. It has become his life's goal to turn the Kingdom of Georgia into a truly global empire.

Erekle declares war, sending armies to Bashkortostan, Agyidel and Qaraqalpak.

They tell us of Hot Chocolate. The use of Cocoa to create a hot beverage is a custom inherited from the American natives. While the new drink caught on quickly in some parts of European society it has taken some time, and large amounts of sugar before it reached a larger acceptance. With that out of the way however, the demand for chocolate is now steadily increasing in the old world.

November 1628
After 187 days we have won the siege of Bashgird!

December 1628
Event: Italian Engineer Available
During the period 1450-1600, Italian siege engineers were highly sought after to teach the ways of trace Italienne to the militaries of Europe. In most cases, these engineers had no national identity and simply worked for whoever could afford to pay them.

King Erekle hires the engineer. +40 military power, -66.07ducats.

January 1629
Military Technology Advance: Maurician Infantry (15)
The size and depth of the Spanish Square gave it staying power, but made it slow and cumbersome to maneuver on the battlefield. It also led to a large percentage of troops being inactive during battles. Maurice of Nassau, the Stadtholder of the Netherlands, reduced the total number of men in the formation to make it more mobile and reduced its depth, so it maintained the same firepower and shock values.

Herald from Portugal
They tell us of Popularization of Silk Fabrics
Silk has been in high demand throughout the world since long before the middle ages and its procurement was one of the driving forces behind the voyages of discovery in the east. With the greater availability of silk, both raw and woven, the demand for Silk cloth in the west is soaring ever higher.

Current Mission: Achieve Religious Unity

A Revolt!
Nogai Nationalists have risen up in Buzuluk!

After 91 days we have won the siege of Altyn!

Bonus Effect: Can now build Textile Manufactory.

After 181 days we have won the siege of the Uzbek capital, Kypshak!

End of the Georgian Conquest of Agyidel (October 1627 – April 1630)

Good dynasty! In my French dynasty I tried expanding similarly to you, but pretty much the entire map turned on me because they were threatened, so I had Britain with a lot of the northern provinces attacking me on one front and Spain / Portugal attacking me on the other front. It was horrible. Glad you have the diplomatic strength to keep it together!

For a long time, the coffee plant was closely guarded by Arabs who held a monopoly on coffee production.

Fortunately we have found that we have a stockpile of such equipment sitting around. It is in poor condition and won't last long, but if we were to use it now we could get men into uniform much cheaper.

Georgia gets 'Surplus Equipment' for five years, granting -10% Infantry Cost.

Manpower is at an all-time high and the armies are burgeoning and ready for a battle. Looking to his south, Erekle sees Qara Qoyunla in a war with Najd.

Event: The Non-Possessor Movement
The Church is a large landowner and this has brought a great deal of wealth to the Church. The non-possessors claim that the Church is being corrupted by this great wealth. Their opponents argue that the Church needs this wealth to carry out its holy mission. The key thing is the Church isn't really a big taxpayer, if it was forced to give its land away it would move into the hands of people we can tax. The downside would be the Church would have less wealth to perform its mission.

Thanks guys!

Brian, basically you need to be able to claim a province to be able to get it easier through a war, it also gives you a reason to go to war without unnecessarily raising war exhaustion and losing stability. Coring the province will help keep revolts down (to a point) and allows you to rake in income from the province. In effect, it makes the province worth something to you.

The Georgian Conquest of Perm
King Erekle has seen relations with Muscovy sour in recent years, mostly because of claims on Muscovian provinces.
