Chapter One Hundred and Seventy - The 5th Algiers/Kilwa War


I order my three armies on the south flank to Kalonga -15k, 2 31k

My fleet is in the Zanzibar Strati

On the north flank my three armies (7k, 33k, 31k) are ordered to the minor of Zigua

21 Nov – Both minors fall, I order my northern army to Kilwa’s capital of Kilwa

8 Jan, 1696 – We capture a minor

28 Feb – Another minor falls on the southern flank and this 77k army is next to their 43k army in Lindi, I order my army there

6 Mar – Kilwa falls! I order my armies to Lindi next door

1 April – Our DIP level 3 advisor passes, the Naval reformer, I hire a level 3 Naval Reformer to replace it

16 April – We win the Campaign in Lindi, I order half of my army to follow

I decline an alliance offer from Austria, I don’t wanna get in the Turks’ way

18 May – Lindi is ours!

I split up my armies

4 July – I rout their army in Quelimane

8 July – Three minors fall

7 Aug – Quelimane falls!

31 Aug – Four minors fall!

16 Sept – Event – Naval Research Wrong -I spend 10 prestige to avoid losing DIP power

14 Oct - The last Kilwa province in the mainland falls! I have a warscore of 86 – what can I get?

Let’s go for a big one:

Southern Kilwa:

Quelimane – Coastal, next to us in Sofala, Lolo and Sena – 16 warscore, 15 badboy

Kalonga – Wartarget, south coast of Lake Malawi, next to our Lolo and Lundu and east of Nsenga – 7 warscore and badboy

Lomwe – North of Lolo, East of Kalonga – 5 warscore and 2 badboy

Most of the others will madden Kilwa.

Not this:

Makua – Connects Quelimane and Lomwe, east of us in Lolo – 6 warscore and 4 badboy:



5th War – 34 warscore and 27.4 badboy - I also zoomed into my cash

I take peace and then spend coring 162, more than 100 of that was the big prize…

Southern Kilwa:

Quelimane – Coastal, next to us in Sofala, Lolo and Sena – This was a big prize – 27 dev, Ivory, Tropical and Coastline, Nyasa Fetishists, 0.21 made here, Zambezi Estuary, Conscription Center, Shipyard, Stock Exchange, Drydock, Town Hall, I order destroyed here the Drydock for a Trade Station manufactory later

Kalonga – Wartarget, south coast of Lake Malawi, next to our Lolo and Lundu and east of Nsenga – 11 dev, Drylands, Iron mining, COT Emporium, Tropical, Nyasa Fetishists, Training Fields, Workshop, Weapons Manufactory and Conscription Center, makes 1.03

Lomwe – North of Lolo, East of Kalonga – Tropical Savannah, Trade Station for Ivory, Workshop, just 3 dev, makes 0.57, Makua Fetishist,

Makua
– Connects Quelimane and Lomwe, east of us in Lolo – Throw in – Makua Fetishist, Ivory, Savannah, 6 dev, Trade Station, Workshop, 0.86, Tropical

Four great trade goods - Iron and three Ivory all at least 4.0.

5 June – We win the campaign in West Africa’s Mandara

28 June – Tegali falls!

Next the Fortress of Darfur

26 Aug – Degehbur falls!

Next is the Star Fort of Kaffa

I have a warscore of 55%

What can I get?

If you’ll recall I want the Red Sea down to the crossing over the Red Sea to keep the Turks from heading down the coast after Aden. I’ve wiped out my manpower and need to rebuild.

I’ll take as much as possible after my Red Sea stuff until Somalia cares.

Ready?

North Somalia:

Massawa – Wartarget, Red Sea, South of Suakin – 3 warscore, 4 badboy

Assab – Red Sea, South of Massawa, 5 warscore, 3 badboy

Tajura – Red Sea, south of Assab, strait to Arabia - 8 warscore and badboy, but Somalia cares. Uh oh. What do I do? Do it and then annoy them later? I don’t want Somalia joining Kilwa. But I need to stop the Turks from crossing over, and I need to get land from my 206k manpower spent and years of fighting.

I do it.

What else?

Now it’s just good things

Can I get Mokha?

Mokha – Arabian Peninsula, strait to Tajura – Surrounded by Aden – I don’t want them to attack us from the strait – 10 warscore and badboy

Fazughli – South of us in Al Qadarif, Cuts Somalia off from western holdings – 5 score and 3 badboy

South Somalia:

Tana – North of Taveta – 7 score, 9 badboy

That’s the most I can do with Mombasa on the sidelines:



38 score, 36.8 badboy I do it! I spend ADM equal to 132

My new stuff!

North Somalia:


Massawa – Wartarget, Red Sea, South of Suakin – Mill for Gems, Grand Shipyard, Tigray Coptic, Arid Coastal Desert, 5 dev, makes us 0.41

Assab
– Red Sea, South of Massawa – Afar and Sunni, Arid Coastal Desert – Grand Shipyard and Farm Estate for Livestock, 4 dev, 0.34 made here.

Tajura – Red Sea, south of Assab, strait to Arabia – 10 dev, Afar and Sunni, Arid and Coastal Desert, Farm Estate for Livestock and Workshop and Conscription Center 0.68 made here

Mokha
– Arabian Peninsula, strait to Tajura – Surrounded by Aden – I don’t want them to attack us from the strait – Coastline, not Arid, Coffee, Afar and Sunni, 13 dev, Star Fort we can upgrade later, Workshop and Plantation, 0.36 made here

Fazughli – South of us in Al Qadarif, Cuts Somalia off from western holdings – Arid Marsh – weird combo, Salt here, Mosque and Workshop, 5 dev, Nubian and Coptic.

South Somalia:

Tana – North of Taveta – Throw in – Arid Savanah, 10 dev, Ivory trade, Conscription Center, Trade Station and Workshop, Somali culture, Sunni faith and makes us 1.19

Good stuff! We took 6 holdings, but not a major holding, so this wasn’t a major economic hit.

Peace until 1719 in nine years

Chapter One Hundred and Seventy-Seven - Great Work in Kilwa


26 Aug, 1710 - I order:

My 36k in Malay back to Borneo

I disband my 4 mercs – most will take years to recover, but not the 30k in the Egyptian flank, they are still fully funded.

My Egyptian armies back to Egypt

I order armies to three captured holdings

I order one southern army to Tana, the rest back to my border with Kilwa and Mombasa

That was a good military victory not a good economic one. I grabbed down to the strait in Tajura, grabbed the Arabian Mokha on the other side. Now Aden won’t be attacking our rear Fortresses in the border with the Turks but now there against a Star Fort to be upgraded to a Fortress and then I’ll build a Fortress in Tajura on the other side as a backup from Aden as well as to stop Somalia from crossing over and with my navy camping there, Aden cannot move over even after capturing Mokha

Then we bisected them with taking Fazughli. That will cut their Western Area from their main holdings, so that we can keep them from supplying them. I’ll also want to build a Fortress there so they cannot take it quickly in the next war. Everything was military in nature, save for the Ivory throw in.

Do not that all 6 goods are worth at least 3 since livestock is now a 3.40 value trade good, and that was just one in Gems. Salt is 3.3, Coffee is more than 3 and Ivory is a strong 4. That was a military take, next is economic.

By taking Mokha, the Turks cannot DOW them with a Casus Belli in the future after spreading through Aden, although they are allies. That really shuts down the Turks from spreading into my Africa. One bad thing about taking Mokha is that now when I DOW Kilwa and their Arabian Peninsula power Hormuz buddy, they can send over their troops and attack me, so we’ll now be at war here too. Hormuz has lost some land to the Turks and currently has 15k so we can siege them to bring them in in a future war.

Although the issue with Kilwa is that with few sieges proper in the last few years since they don’t have any defensive installments in the mainland, I haven’t blown through manpower in this war.

Now I need to take some time off and recover my manpower, which replaces lost men in sieges, attrition, and battles, so we blew through a strong 206k in just a few years. I cannot go to war against Kilwa or Mombasa in the soon since I need to rebuild my troops and manpower over a few years.

The next war I need to win the economic battle. But this will take a lot of wars, just like Kilwa who already has 7. But even after 7 wars and losing all of that Gold, Kilwa still has a big fat army, so we’ll need to be careful. And I cannot build troops without manpower, so I cannot add to my forces right now.

Also gone are our Sailors that you spend to make ships or to repair in ports. I send my navy to berth in Suakin where my 2 captured ships are. They are at 100% after rebuilding, and they are both light ships, and then after rebuilding I’ll send my navy back out again for trade protection in Zanzibar

Now I need to recover my manpower.

I gain 2702 per month, and we have a max of 264k

I need to update that higher and get faster manpower recovery.

There is a military building called a Training Fields that increases local manpower by 100

It costs 285 and can be built in 12 months

I order:

Great Work:

Kilwa – 2.5k to start, when finished +0.5 annual prestige, +20% ship trade power, +2 merchant trade power

Training Fields here:

West Africa:

Tekrur
Galam
Wagadu
Termes
Tagant
Baghena
Hodh
Azawad
Taudeni
Azawagh
Karou
Grain Coast
Ivory Coast

South Africa:

Great Karoo

That leaves me 2232 for cash - Getting more than 265k is my goal for this investment

Slaves are down to 2.20 – that’s not good

New Tech!

MIL TECH 25 – Royal Mortar – We get better artillery, +2 artillery fire and +0.10 shock

I order my troops upgraded

I state:

Gulf of Guinea
– 4 – Dyes in Bonny, Fish in Calabar, Tropical Wood for Gabon, Naval Supplies in Cameroon – all former colonies. This is about Bonny’s Dyes

I hand a Majils Seat to Gold province in West Africa Bure

1 Sept – I spend 50 DIP inviting minorities

30 Sept- Event – Royal Patronage – I don’t spend 7446 cash to hire someone and invest

29 Oct - I accept Institution Sharing with Passau

1 Nov – My Sailors are building up again

2 Dec – Event – Monument to Zimbabwe – We get better relations, cash, and +20 prestige

31 Dec - 7k Rebellion in March Sale

11 Jan, 1713 – This is the year our Mombasa peace treaty is up, but I don’t wanna war with no manpower

There is a building called a Soldier’s Household which costs 475 each and takes 60 months to build and are a Manufactory of Manpower. They are best in Grain, Livestock, Fish and Wine. For example, building this in the Grain provinces of Upper Limpopo will increase my manpower by 1500.

I order Soldier’s Households in:

Upper Limpopo
Great Karoo
Whydah
Calabar
Lango
Banghazi
Bardiyah
Tarrana

That drops me to 2232 left

I pass it!

1 June – We get a bunch of new trade goods!

30 Aug - Event – Muhammed and the Senegambian People – Our heir is getting close to a Senegambian Advisor. They have gone on trips, and our establishment doesn’t like how close they are. I side with our heir, we get -3 revoltrisk in those provinces, and claim strength of Muhammad drops 25%

12 Oct – I order my 6 Southern Flank Armies around Kilwa in a pincer movement since we’ll be at peace in a few years

They still have 56k so we’ll need to take that seriously

4 Nov - I spend 45 MIL to brutally suppress a rebellion in Tana since I cannot afford losing more troops

7 Dec – Conversion successful in Fazuglhi!

I order a Fortress here

1 Jan, 1718 – New Tech!!

ADMIN TECH 26 – Separation of Powers – Another Group of Ideas!

I take Offensive Ideas in the Military branch

Offensive Idea #1 – Bayonet Leaders - +1 leader Shock

Offensive Idea #2 – National Conscripts - -10% Recruitment Time

I order:

Farm Estate for Grain – Benguela, Kumbana, Mbamba, Ijebu; Livestock in Roggeveld, Senqu, Griqualand,
Naval Equipment Manufactory for Fish in Soyo; Naval Supplies in Yaka
Mill for Tropical Wood in Nunu; Gems in Highveld,

That leaves me 2814

12 Jan – Tadmekka falls

18 Jan – I retake Azawagh

22 Feb – 31k rebels defeated in Tadmekka, I order two armies to the 21k in Bagoe

26 Feb -Bagoe falls

19 Mar – Tadmekka is ours again

21 Mar – Cores done in all three province!

Mozambique already a state in that state, Ndinga in the Makuana state and Kinga in Ngonde

Missionaries:

Ngindo - 31 months
Kinga – 38 months
Mozambique – 50 months

I hand a Majils Seat to Mozambique

16 April – Aribanda ours again!

13 July – We take the last two, rebellion over!

17 Aug – I send my extra diplomat to make nice with Barus

1 Oct – I can become the “Economic Hegemon” What would that do?

Here I’ll show you:



Spain is the Military Hegemon. Reduced War Exhaustion, better manpower for my mercs, lower dev costs for investing power in provinces, and then it’d get better over time.

I do it, but that means that, like Spain, there would be an Economic Hegemon to take me off the map

I can ally with Bengal:



Do I want to get pulled into Indian and SE Asia wars in order to protect my interests defensively? I think so, let’s do it

7 Oct – I promote a new general to replace the one that passed – he’s a surprising level 3

6 Dec – Deccan announces us as a rival again…

I pull my diplomat

1 Jan, 1719 – That was a busy year!

This is the year that my peace with Somalia ends but with just 128k manpower I don’t think we’ll be digging that channel, probably just Mombasa next.

I order:

Great Work:


Kilwa – 5k – This gives me the boosted trade power with Ships, merchant trade, and prestige

I have left 2553 for emergencies

30 Jan – I send my Deccan diplomat to make nice with Persia

1 Feb - Event – Coffee Imports – I choose to import and we get for 5 years +10% Fort Defense and reduced revoltrisk

23 Feb – I need to make nice with Malacca, our relations are down to -9 so I order my Barus diplomat back, so I can send one to make nice with them

2 April – I spend 140 ADM to boost our stability back to +3

1 Jul – Peace up with Somalia and allies

1 Aug - I choose Deccan as our new rival when I cannot do it anymore

1 Sept – Our level 3 ADM Advisor the Inquisitor passes, I hire a level 3 Philosopher +1 prestige each year

14 Oct – My Kilwa armies are back from West Africa and next to Mombasa

20 Oct - Ndingo converts! Two left from Kilwa

I order my Navy to the Zanzibar Strait

They have two Fortresses now, so I’d need to probably lose some manpower sieging

I order another 31k troops in Lake Victoria since I have 202.20 spent in maintenance and a forcelimit of 510k and 479k

That drops me to 129k manpower

17 Nov – Event – Tariffs on Tobacco – we do it

1 Jan, 1720 – I don’t order anything to save for emergency mercs against Mombasa

They have 26k troops in Pate two away from us so they may take their army to our stuff in Egypt

6 Jan – We have our navy in the Strait and my Kilwan army from Kinga here.

I DOW Mombasa for Malindi, next to us with a Fortress – this is the 2nd Mombasa War

Remember they are very high dev, so this might be three wars
