The time for war has come. Indian Wardrums beat. As the Europeans so the Maharaja shall claim what is rightfully his and write his name down within the stars! Or however you can say that.

BEGIN TURN 5


(Click for Larger View)

Recent Developments:

  • French ships from Fort Maurepas arrive at Twenty-Seven Mile Bluff to build Fort Louis de la Mobile to become the capital of French Louisiana
  • William III of England dies of complications. He is succeeded by his sister-in-law, Princess Anne Stuart, who becomes Queen Anne of England, Scotland, and Ireland. Queen Anne's marriage to Prince George of Denmark and Norway results in a dynastic union between Denmark and England.
  • The first regular English-language national newspaper, The Daily Courant, is published for the first time in Fleet Street in the city of London. It covers only foreign news.
  • The War of the Spanish Succession intensifies with an official declaration of war against France by the Grand Alliance of England, the Dutch Republic, and the Holy Roman Empire.
  • John Churchill, Captain-General of the English Army, begins a campaign against French interests in the Low Countries with the capture of Kaiserswerth in the Rhineland.
  • Charles XII of Sweden withdraws a portion of the Swedish assault forces in Norway to retaliate against the Polish-Lithuanian-Saxon invasion of Livonia. Sweden regains control of the region after a decisive Commonwealth defeat.
  • The Manchurian occupying army in Tibet is partititioned into three smaller forces. Seven battalions of Manchurian infantry are dispatched across the Tibetan Plateau to establish a foothold for the Qing Dynasty in the contested region of Kashmir. Another seven battalions are sent south to cross the northern Himalayas into the Nepal Mandala.
  • The remainder of the Qing garrison in Tibet begins to establish fortifications along the province's northwestern and southeastern borders.
  • The Qing Dynasty sends representatives west to secure a trade arrangement with Prussia.
  • The Khalkan Khanate agrees to a pact of non-aggression with the Qing Dynasty.
  • A Chinese ambassador is executed by Dzungarian soldiers after an attempt to establish a pact of non-aggression with the Dzungar Khanate.
  • A naval blockade is established around the port at Copenhagen. The blockading ships are visibly European in general design, but bear no markings or unique features suggesting affiliation with any specific nation.
  • Holland experiences significant population growth due to an influx of migrants emigrating from various German duchies to seek religious and political freedom in the Dutch Netherlands.
  • Several regiments of Swedish cavalry, some drawn from the assault forces in Norway, are assigned to patrol the borders of Ingria, Estonia, and Livonia, to defend against additional Polish incursions.
  • Swedish naval forces are withdrawn from Danish waters and sent to blockade the ports of the Commonwealth protectorate of Courland, in retaliation to the Polish-Lithuanian-Saxon invasion of Livonia.
  • Russian forces launch an assault upon the Tatar fortress at Bakhckhisarai in Crimea, resulting in a decisive Tatar defeat, and establishing de facto Russian control over Crimea.
  • Several regiments of unmarked heavy cavalry assault into Norway from the east, inflicting heavy casualties upon occupying Swedish siege camps and Norwegian resistance forces alike.
  • Religious unrest intensifies in Chukotka, now a tributary state of the Russian Empire, as the indigenous Chukchi and other local Tungusic, Tatar, and Turkic peoples resist attempts by the Russian Orthodox Church to Christianize the region.

[1] Holy Roman Empire, and our protestant allies, have marched to war for a just cause. Who are we to merely sit still while there is a battle to be one! Rally the men to war, we march to war
[2] Rally our allied german states to war
[3] Send a diplomatic Envoy to England, requesting the concession of rightful Rhineland territories of Kaiserwerth back to the fatherland, in exchange for direct support in the war.
[4] Begin the development of Breechloading cannons, I am highly interested in the proposed design by Sir William Armstrong
[5] Redevelop our supply lines and theories on logistics. For an army to be functional, it must be supplied and these supplies MUST be mobile. I believe use and procurement of local railroads to quickly move supplies and troops are the future.

[1-3] The time for India has come to finally see progress. Continue the march South to conquest and the reunification of India!

[4] The future is here, commence the arms trade with European merchants to gain muskets and cannons for the Indian army.

[5] Europe is an incredibly efficient continent, look at how they handle agriculture and animal husbandry to quell the always rising food needs of the Indian population.

The Osman Empire is eager to begin diplomacy with its friends in Europe and Asia.

[1/2] - Get a census of my military and population.
[3] - Send envoys to the Polish Commonwealth, the Swedish Empire, and France.
[4] - Tend to the infrastructure of the Eastern provinces, we will need good roads and reliable irrigation/water systems.
[5] - Dispatch emissaries to Russia and Persia, to try and dissuade conflict and promote cooperation.

  • English forces led by Captain-General John Churchill and Dutch forces led by Hendrik van Nassau-Ouwerkerk lead a successful joint assault upon the city of Liège, signifying the beginning of an Anglo-Dutch occupation of Wallonia in the Spanish Netherlands.
  • Claude Louis Hector de Villars receives orders from Louis XIV to attack into Swabia. Villars leads French forces across the Rhine to a costly victory against the defending Holy Roman Imperial army at Friedlingen led by Louis William, Margrave of Baden.
  • A rebellion against the Polish Commonwealth is initiated in Podolia by Cossack polkovnik Paliy. The Cossack rebels capture the towns of Bila Tserkva, Tasiv, and Nemerov, but are defeated by Commonwealth forces near the town of Berdychiv.
  • Spanish colonial militia at St. Augustine in Spanish Florida successfully repel an attempted siege action by English provincial forces from Carolina.
  • Several French colonial settlements in Newfoundland are raided by English naval forces led by Captain John Leake.
  • The Nyatapola Temple is built at Bhaktapur in Nepal Mandala by King Bhupatindra Malla.
  • Colonists from the Yarubid Dynasty of Oman assume direct control in Kenya after consolidating power around the capitol at Mombasa.
  • An open-pit copper mine is established in Kristineberg in Sweden.
  • Representatives from the Dutch Republic and the Mughal Empire sign the Treaty of Colombo, granting greater autonomy to the Dutch-controlled portion of Ceylon, and renouncing Dutch claim to the eastern portion of the island, instead apportioning the land to Mughal interests.
  • The Electorate of Hanover is officially incorporated into the Kingdom of Prussia.
  • English captures in the Rhineland are signed over to Prussian ownership.
  • A small portion of the Prussian fleet is designated to be experimentally outfitted with breech-loading swivel guns.
  • Prussian architects expand existing wagonway networks to link Hanover and the Rhineland with Mecklenburg and Brandenburg.
  • Swedish forces occupying Norway fall back to entrenched positions around the city of Trondheim to defend against siege actions by unmarked mercenary forces invading from the east. The battle results in a costly strategic stalemate for both sides.
  • Naval skirmishes around the Øresund intensify as Swedish naval reinforcements from Malmö and Stockholm attempt to break the heavy naval blockade of unmarked privateer ships around the port of Copenhagen. The blockade is maintained, with Swedish naval forces suffering minor losses, and the blockading navy receiving reinforcements from the west.
  • Mughal Imperial forces take the forts at Torna and Rajgad in Marashtra.
  • Mughal armories begin importing large quantities of European-style muskets through trade deals with the Portuguese garrison at Goa.
  • A Turkish emissary is sent to France to establish a strategic alliance between France and the Osman Empire against their common Russian and Austrian enemies.
  • Osman officials in Mesopotamia authorize the repair and expansion of irrigation systems in the Baghdad, Mosul, and Basra eyalets.
  • New cobbled roads are constructed in Moscovy, linking Moscow, Novgorod, and Swedish Ingria.
  • With the establishment of a permanent garrison, Anadyr, in Siberian Chukotka, the region is effectively annexed by the Russian Empire, and incorporated as the Chukotsk Okrug.
  • Several regiments of municipal streltsy are deployed from Moscovy and Arkhangelsk into Crimea to enforce Russian public order. Major instances of armed insurrection by Crimean Turks and Tatars in the Donetsk area are subdued by streltsy intervention.

[1] - Move a considerable force of frigates through the Dardanelles and into the Black Sea. For protection and purely defensive purposes, of course.
[2] - We must take advantage of this irrigation and gather surplus food. I fear the winter will be a harsh one.
[3] - Though we may be great in number, our infantry are in need of modernization. Through trade and through innovation, I shall have the finest firearms in all the world!
[4] - Education and science must be encouraged if our scholars are to maintain their renown. We cannot hold on to the learning of the old Calipates, but must learn again for ourselves! Begin the construction of a university in Ankara.

Imperialis (Turn 7: Spring, Anno Domini 1703)

Post by CFan on Fri Jan 30, 2015 4:22 am

BEGIN TURN 7


(Click for Larger View)

Recent Developments:

  • In Japan, the revenge of the Forty-seven Ronin occurs, assassinating Daimyo Kira Yoshinaka, the enemy of their former lord Asano Naganori, at his own mansion as an act of revenge. Seven weeks later, 46 of the 47 samurai commit ritual suicide.
  • A sequence of three earthquakes occur in the central Apennines of Italy, over a period of 19 days, with epicenters near Norcia, Montereale, and L'Aquila. A total of roughly 10,000 people are estimated to have died as a result of these earthquakes, though the exact casualty numbers remain uncertain.
  • Soldiers at Fort Louis de la Mobile in French Louisiana celebrate Mardi Gras for the first time.
  • Portugal joins the Grand Alliance against France and Spain.
  • With French funding, and assistance from Polish mercenaries, Kuruc rebels under the command of Hungarian Prince Rákóczi Ferenc II begin an uprising against Austrian Habsburg rule at Munkács in Transylvania.
  • The completed Icelandic census of 1703 is presented in Iceland's general assembly, and is generally regarded as the first complete and comprehensive census of any modern country.
  • Somdet Phra Phetracha, King of Ayutthaya, is succeeded by his eldest son, Prince Sorasak, who takes the title of Sanphet VIII.
  • Construction of the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Grâce de Cambrai by French architects is completed in the archdiocese of Cambrai in Normandy. The cathedral immediately becomes the seat of the Archbishop of Cambrai, François Fénelon.
  • The Claustro del Convento de la Merced is completed in the colonial capital of Mexico City in New Spain. The cloister soon lends its name to the barrio surrounding it.
  • Leonty Magnitsky's Aritmetika is published, the first scientific book in the Russian language.
  • Gottfried Leibniz first publishes the Erklärung der binären Rechnen, a description of binary number systems.
  • The case of Ashby v. White is decided in the Court of King's Bench. Concerning the right to vote, it is a leading case in the Constitution of England and English tort law, establishing the principle that "for every wrong there is a remedy".
  • The Recruiting Act of 1703 is passed by the Parliament of England, providing for the forcible enlistment of able bodied men into the army and navy who do not have visible means of subsistence.
  • The blockading fleet around Copenhagen is revealed to be under the command of the Dutch Republic after the ships are recalled and dispatched to make contact with an Anglo-Dutch merchant fleet under the supervision of Roemer Vlacq, scheduled to sail from Portugal to England. The reinforcing Dutch warship fleet successfully intercepts a French naval squadron under the command of Alain Emmanuel de Coëtlogon attempting to ambush the merchant convoy. The naval battle is a moderate Dutch victory, with several of the smaller Dutch frigates being destroyed by the larger French line ships. The merchant convoy and Vlacq's escort ships are able to safely arrive at English ports due to the intervention of the Dutch reinforcements.
  • Dutch forces attempting to consolidate power in the Spanish Netherlands are surrounded by an outnumbering Franco-Spanish mounted infantry force near Antwerp in Flanders. Roughly a third of the occupying Dutch force is destroyed, but the remainder of the forces manages to retreat into Dutch territory.
  • English Captain-General Christopher Codrington leads a military expedition to capture the French isle of Guadelope in the Leeward Islands. The French garrison at Guadeloupe receives reinforcements from Martinique, and the siege culminates in a strategic English failure after the English siege supplies are depleted, having inflicted negligible damage upon French infrastructure.
  • French and Spanish forces under the command of Claude Louis Hector de Villars capture the Holy Roman Imperial fortress at Kehl, preventing Prussian and other Imperial forces from crossing into Alsace and Lorraine.
  • Swedish scouts in Norway report invading mercenary forces beginning fortress constructions near the towns of Vadsø, Troms, and Mo i Rana. The architecture is notably Slavic in design, suggesting likely affiliation to the Polish Commonwealth, or a markedly less likely affiliation to Russia.
  • Swedish cavalry and mounted infantry north of Trondheim attempt a counterattack against invading Slavic forces to the northeast. The advancing Swedish force is ambushed by a large patrol of Slavic skirmishers and gun cavalry. The Swedish force is decisively routed and retreats to southern Trøndelag.
  • A combined brigade of Finnish hakkapeliitta and 48-pound artillery batteries from Ingria arrive in Trøndelag to reinforce the occupying cavalry and infantry divisions. The united force marches south to take the Norwegian capital at Kristiania. The siege is a decisive Swedish victory, and nearly all surviving Norwegian militants retreat to Denmark.
  • Emperor Aurangzeb of the Mughal Empire is deposed by the political opposition and is exiled to Fergana in the Khanate of Bukhara. Bahadur Shah I is appointed as the new emperor.
  • The previous Mughal imperial policy of strict Islamic law is abolished by Bahadur Shah I. As a result, several small pro-Maratha rebel groups in Mughal territory disband, and public order improves throughout the empire.
  • Under the orders of Bahadur Shah I, cobbled roads are constructed to link the cities of Akbarabad in Hindustan, Lahore in Punjab, and Srinagar in Kashmir.
  • Large tracts of arable common land are designated for enclosure in the regions of Punjab, Rajputana, and Malwa. Tenanted farms are developed on the land, and agricultural output and efficiency in these regions improves over the following months.
  • A large Turkish fleet consisting of several dozen xebecs and war galleys is assembled in the Aegean Sea and ordered to cross through the Çanakkale Strait into the Black Sea. Several of the ships collide in the narrow strait, resulting in a reported loss of 13 ships and over 350 naval crew members, as well as significant damage dealt to at least six additional ships.
  • Turkish Sultan Ahmed III orders the construction of additional firearm and artillery factories in Bosnia, Serbia, and Greece, to employ skilled local labor and utilize the latest available European technological advances.
  • A secular madrasa is established at Ankara in Anatolia, specializing in calligraphic and intellectual sciences.
  • Improvements in local irrigation lead to a vast surplus of wheat, barley, and fig output in Turkish Mesopotamia and Syria.
  • The Russian central road network in Moscovy is expanded to link the region to neighboring Arkhangelsk and Ukraine.
  • The Dutch Republic reintroduces lijfrenten bonds, and begins gradually dissolving Holland's general wealth tax, in favor of a tax on income from provincial bonds. The following months see a notable increase in confidence in Holland's capacity for financial leverage.
  • A squadron of Prussian frigates sails from Brandenburg to blockade the French ports at Calais and Boulogne.
  • The Kingdom of Prussia places renewed emphasis on mercantilist policy, instating subsidies on high-value manufacturing and research, as well as amending trade terms with Poland to establish a sustainable positive balance of trade for Prussia.

1/2 - Well, alright that clearly did not go as intended. We ought to procure new ships, of the finest Balkan wood and the most virile seamen to man it. Hopefully this fleet will fare better than the last. Oh, and give those poor souls a good funeral.
3 - With the academy burgeoning, now would be an ideal time to be employing scientists, physicians, even astronomers. The Empire will once more be known as a haven of learning and progress.
4 - Send ambassadors to the new Shah of India, perhaps Bahadur will be a useful ally in any... future conflicts.
5 - Finally, we must modernize our army just as its equipment has been improved. The finest guns in the world are no replacement for good strategy! Bring in European minds if we must, they may have knowledge we can use.

[1-2] Our Dutch Allies are making incredible improvements in their road and infrastructural network. Surely as fellow germanic peoples they will consent to us continuing their road structure with our own!
>Link up Prussian Road/Canal networks with Dutch ones
[3-5] With permission of our fellow Dutch allies, we will use our combined infrastructure and road networks and link up our forces for a massive, double headed charge into Southern Netherlands to drive out the french there. Those territories will be restored to Dutch Rule and serve as an excellent front to outflank the French and Spanish forces.

The French and Spanish are cooperating, and so shall we.
[5] Start up a siege of Fort Kehl with long range heavy weapons, entrenched behind earthen defenses and embankments. Bring up the new breech loaders if we can. The purpose is to inflict as much damage via attrition and siege as we can. Let them have the fort, it will be their tomb.

Imperialis (Turn 8: Autumn, Anno Domini 1703)

Post by CFan on Tue Feb 17, 2015 3:55 am

BEGIN TURN 8


(Click for Larger View)

Recent Developments:

  • The Great Storm of 1703, an Atlantic hurricane, ravages southern England and the English Channel, killing nearly 8,000, and resulting in the destruction of 13 line ships and over 40 merchant ships.
  • Isaac Newton is elected president of the Royal Society in London
  • Portugal and England sign the Methuen Treaty, which gives preference to Portuguese wines imported into England.
  • Kuruc rebels defeat a combined Austrian-Danish-Hungarian-Serbian force near Zvolen, in Upper Hungary.
  • A whirlwind blows down the tower of the Gan Takal in Gondar, capital of Ethiopia, killing 30.
  • English writer Daniel Defoe is imprisoned for four months for the crime of seditious libel, after publishing his politically satirical pamphlet, The Shortest Way with the Dissenters.
  • The 10th Regiment of the Danish Army infantry is established as part of the Danish corps fighting in foreign service against the French and Spanish in Italy.
  • Louis-Hector de Callière, Governor General of New France, dies in office. Philippe de Rigaud Vaudreuil succeeds him as Governor General of New France.
  • A privately raised Franco-Spanish expedition led by Blas Moreno Mondragón of Spain and Clause Le Chesnaye of France arrives at New Providence in the English Bahamas and quickly seizes the capital at Nassau. The Franco-Spanish force dismantles the fort of Nassau, and takes the English governor and all English soldiers as prisoners.
  • A parish of the Church of Saint Michael is established at Trenton in New Jersey.
  • The case of Coggs v Bernard is decided in the Court of King's Bench in England. Concerning the duties of a bailee, it is a landmark case in English contract law and property law.
  • Sir Robert Doyne is appointed as Chief Justice of the Irish Common Pleas.
  • The Parliament of Ireland investigates the possibility of improving navigation on the rivers Shannon and Barrow and constructing a canal near Newry.
  • The first issue of the Wiennerisches Diarium, an Austrian newspaper reporting on regional and international news, is published in Vienna, Austria.
  • A large earthquake occurs on the eastern coast of Japan, with an epicenter near the capital at Edo. The earthquake triggers a major tsunami, resulting in estimated totals between 5,000 and 10,000 casualties from the earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent fires.
  • Charles Plumier's Nova plantarum Americanarum genera begins publication in Paris. This includes descriptions of Fuchsia, discovered by him on Hispaniola, and naming of the genus Magnolia, applied to a species from Martinique.
  • A combined force of French colonial militia and natives of the Wabanaki Confederacy attack and destroy several English settlements along the coast of Maine.
  • A Manchurian expedition sent by the Qing Dynasty in the previous year arrives in the Nepal Mandala, and demands tribute from the ruling Malla Dynasty and the local Newar peoples in exchange for protection. The Malla rulers agree to the terms, and the Nepal Mandala becomes an autonomous tributary state of the Qing Dynasty.
  • Qing Dynasty expeditionary forces deployed in Kashmir are caught in a crossfire between warring expatriate forces from Persia, Dzungaria, and India. The Chinese forces are routed and forced to retreat into Tibet.
  • A force of Slavic Cossack infantry and cavalry moving south through Norway is ambushed and routed north of the capital at Kristiania by an outnumbering force of Swedish line infantry and regimental cavalry. Over half of the Cossack force is lost in the attack. Swedish scouts later sight the remaining Cossacks retreating across the Norwegian border into Russian Karelia.
  • Sweden and Denmark-Norway sign the Third Treaty of Copenhagen, wherein Denmark agrees to break off all ties to an anti-Swedish alliance, renouce all claim to Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorp, and agree to a permanent pact of non-agression with Sweden, in exchange for Swedish-occupied Norway becoming a dual protectorate state of Sweden and Denmark.
  • Roads are constructed between major settlements in Norway and Sweden to facilitate trade between the two countries.
  • An increased demand from industry in Sweden for agricultural products results in the establishment of land clearances around Vidzeme, in Swedish Livonia.
  • An iron mining operation is established in the Bergslagen area in Sweden.
  • The First and Second Norwegian line infantry regiments of the Swedish Army are created as a result of the Third Treaty of Copenhagen.
  • The main force of the Holy Roman Imperial Army under Louis William, Margrave of Baden takes the city of Augsburg in Bavaria. A force of Austrians under Count Herman Otto II of Limburg-Stirum continues southeast into Bavaria, and is intercepted by a combined French-Bavarian force led by French general Claude Louis Hector de Villars and Bavarian general Maximilian Emanuel II. The Austrians lose an estimated total of over 11,000 soldiers, 37 artillery pieces, and much of their accompanying supply train.
  • French forces under the command of Camille d'Hostun de Tallard besiege the city of Landau in the Rhineland. Holy Roman forces under the command of Crown Prince Frederick of Hesse-Kassel and Count John Ernst of Nassau-Weilburg move south to lift the siege. With reinforcements led by Armand de Pracomtal, the French force assaults the Imperial camp south of Speyer. Armand de Pracomtal is killed during the battle, and much of his cavalry force is defeated by the Germans, but the remaining French infantry force under Camille de Tallard surrounds and routs the Hessian and Palatine Imperial forces, causing them to retreat across the river Speyerbach. As a result of the battle, the German city of Landau is forced to capitulate to the French.
  • A large Russian division under the command of Prince Aleksandr Menshikov assaults into Swedish Ingria, quickly capturing the regional capital at Narva and the nearby fortress at Nyenskans. Swedish forces along the river Systerbäck are forced to retreat into Estonia and Finland to avoid encirclement by the Russians. The Russian force establishes the Petropavlovskaya Krepost near Nyenskans, and develops the settlement of Saint Petersburg around the new Russian fortress.
  • The first issue of the Sankt-Peterburgskie Vedomosti, a Russian-language newspaper detailing Russian military and diplomatic news, as well as news of the Dutch Republic translated from Dutch newspapers, is printed in Moscovy in Russia.
  • The settlement of Petrovskaya Sloboda is founded in Karelia around an iron foundry dedicated to manufacturing cannons and anchors for the newly established Baltic Fleet of the Russian Navy.
  • Dutch and German engineers construct extensive cobbled road networks linking the provinces of the Dutch Republic with Hanover and the various Imperial states in the Rhineland.
  • The Dutch Republic instates a law prohibiting the movement of any French or Spanish ships through Dutch territorial waters.
  • The Kingdom of Prussia and the Dutch Republic initiate a coordinated assault to retake Spanish-controlled Flanders. A Dutch force under Frederik Johan van Baer crosses into the Spanish Netherlands northeast of Bruge, soon capturing the city after defeating the Spanish garrison therein, then continuing towards the city of Ghent. Meanwhile, a Prussian force led by Leopold von Anhalt-Dessau passes through the Bishopric of Liège into northern Spanish-controlled Brabant, narrowly avoiding the massive French defensive line to the south. The Prussians cross the Scheldt River into Flanders proper after forcing a retreat into Antwerp of the Spanish regiments at Eckeren. Leopold von Anhalt-Dessau and Frederik Johan van Baer join their forces north of Ghent and besiege the city from along the northern banks of the Lys and Scheldt Rivers. After exhausting their resources, the Spanish forces at Ghent retreat southeast into Brussels, leaving Ghent to be captured by the Prussian-Dutch forces.
  • A Prussian siege brigade surrounds the French-occupied Fort Kehl and establishes siege camps and entrenched artillery positions on all sides of the fort. German engineers construct roads and wagonways bypassing the weapons range of the fort, allowing Imperial forces a means of safe passage into French Alsace and Lorraine.
  • A merchant fleet bearing flags of the House of Bourbon is seized by pro-Habsburg Spanish rebel corsair ships in the Bay of Biscay. The fleet is reported to have been carrying large quantities of muskets, artillery pieces, and other armaments. Additionally, all of the crewmembers of the cargo fleet are revealed to have been in the employ of the Dutch Navy.
  • Mughal Emperor Bahadur Shah I instates a series of educational reforms, including a mandate for the establishment of a new Hindu madrasa near Akbarabad in Hindustan, the secularization of existing Islamic madrasas constructed under the reign of Aurangzeb, and the adoption of the comparatively liberal al-Ma'qul Persian style of education throughout the Empire. Despite the mandates, lobbying from Islamic scholars and regional ministers causes little progress to be made towards these goals.
  • Mughal Imperial forces capture a small stretch of land in northern Carnatica, encompassing the cities of Chennai and Arcot.
  • As part of an industrial mandate by Bahadur Shah I, a coal mine is established near Chakradharpur in Berar, as well as an iron mine at Rourkela in Orissa, and an open-pit sulfur extraction operation near Jalna in Ahmadnagar.
  • Local and regional leaders of territories recently captured by Mughal forces are replaced with pro-Mughal administrators, and the annexed territories are given a greater degree of autonomy than standard Mughal provinces, as well as an 18-month period of decreased tax obligations. Public order in these territories remains staunchly unfavorable to Mughal occupation, despite the reforms.
  • Turkish dockworkers in Greece, Rumelia, and Anatolia begin efforts to salvage the remains of the 13 ships destroyed in the Çanakkale Strait earlier in the year.
  • Sultan Ahmed III of the Osman Empire sends an appeal to intellectuals in Arabia, Persia, and the Khanate of Khiva to seek career opportunities at the several universities and observatories within the Empire.
  • Turkish emissaries travel to Mughal India, and sign a pact of non-agression between the Mughal and Osman Empires.
  • Intellectuals, philosophers, and aspiring politicians and statesmen in Greece, Rumelia, and Serbia are selectively conscripted into the Turkish army to serve as strategists, commanders, and military theorists.

[1] Use our new infrastructure to move more soldiers to Flanders. Time to retake rightious Dutch clay.
[2] Instigate a new fervour of nationalism in the collonies. Don't want those areas to start disliking us.
[3] To create more lebensraum we shall build on the works of Leeghwater and drain some lakes and/or sea. Create more polders.
[4] Now that the British fleet has been hit rather badly, it's time to capitalize on their loss. Try to muscle in on the British sea trade.

1-3. Our Dutch allies are digging in to hold the recently gained territories. We must ensure that we keep up the initiative. We have the enemy right where we want them! With the french in their defensive line south of Brabant, and the Spanish holding their ground in Brussels,

Quickly, have our norhtern forces led by Leopold von Anhalt-Dessau move southwest, moving behind both the French at South Brabant and the Spanish in brussels, and cutting off any hopes of a retreat without first fighting through our forces. They are to hold the line there at all costs and buy as much time as can be.

As for our forces in the south moving around Khel we are not going to be pushing into Alsace-Lorraine. No, instead, they are to move northwest at full pace, using the highways around Luxembourg, to join up with Leopold and the end result shall be a grand encirclement of French and Spanish forces in Belgium!

Move forthwith at great haste!

3-4. Do whatever we can to open up the roadways in Luxembourg, make diplomatic promises to their heads of state, purchase masses of wagons and cavalry, we must move with as much haste and speed as possible if we are to encircle the enemy army and bring a swift end to this war.

Imperialis (Turn 9: Spring, Anno Domini 1704)

Post by CFan on Fri Jul 24, 2015 10:17 am

BEGIN TURN 9


(Click for Larger View)

Recent Developments:

  • English colonists from the province of Carolina stage a series of brutal raids against the Apalachee native population in Spanish Florida
  • French Canadians and allied American Natives sack the town of Deerfield in New England, killing 50 English colonists
  • Kuruc rebels led by Hungarian General Miklos Bercsenyi in Upper Hungary intercept and defeat a force of Danish Habsburg auxiliaries while marching into Moravia. Kuruc forces proceed to capture the nearby towns of Biskupice and Guta, while the remaining Danish forces retreat to defensive positions at Pressburg and Komarno.
  • The first regular newspaper in the colonies of British North America, The Boston News-Letter, is published.
  • The Kuruc army in Upper Hungary advances into the city of Smolenice, attacking and routing a combined Austrian-German-Danish defending army led by Austrian General Johann von Ritschan. General von Ritschan and approximately 700 Austrian soldiers are captured by the Kurucs during the rout, and Kuruc forces gain a strategic foothold in Lower Austria.
  • Austrian general Hannibal Heister assembles a combined force of Austrians, Germans, Danes, Croatians, and Serbs to attack the Kuruc rebels in the Hungarian Transdanubia. The Kurucs, morally and materially exhausted and in severe disarray after the battles of Biskupice and Smolenice, are routed by an organized offensive by the Austrian imperial forces. A significant portion of the Kuruc militants are killed in combat, and the survivors retreat into Upper Hungary, Lower Austria, and the Steiermark.
  • The lower three counties of the Province of Pennsylvania in British North America become the colony of Delaware.
  • The Sultanate of Brunei cedes its northeastern territories to the Sultanate of Sulu.
  • A Tale of a Tub, the first major satire by Jonathan Swift, is published in London.
  • Isaac Newton publishes his Opticks, a book analyzing the fundamental nature and behavior of light and color.
  • French mathematician Guillaume François Antoine, Marquis de l'Hôpital dies at the age of 43 in Paris.
  • Aaron Hart becomes rabbi of the Great Synagogue of London and is, de facto, England's first chief rabbi.
  • Construction of the Hirado Castle at Nagasaki in Japan is begun by Shigenobu Matsura, 29th lord of the Matsura clan.
  • Italian Baroque composer Antonio Lucio Vivaldi becomes general superintendent of music at the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice.
  • Johann Jacob Bach becomes an oboist in the army of King Charles XII of Sweden, inspiring Johann Sebastian to write a Capriccio on the Absence of His Most Beloved Brother.
  • French colonial forces destroy the English settlement at Bonavista in Newfoundland.
  • The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth erupts into civil war with the formation of the Warsaw Confederation, a faction determined to remove King August II from power and declare the notably pro-Swedish Stanislaw Leszczynski as king.
  • In response to the formation of the Warsaw Confederation, Polish nobility loyal to August II form the Sandomierz Confederation, determined to remove Swedish influence from Polish and Lithuanian lands and support August's claim to the Commonwealth throne.
  • Alexandr Menshikov's Russian assault force stationed in Ingria marches into Swedish Estonia and captures the cities of Tartu, Wesenburg, and Narva.
  • A combined force of Swedish imperial military regiments, Finnish auxiliaries, and Norwegian volunteer forces assemble under the command of General Adam Ludwig Lewenhaupt in Finland for an assault into Russian-controlled territory along the Neva River. The Swedish-allied forces are routed by Russian fortress garrisons near St. Petersburg, and forced to retreat back into Finland.
  • Russian general Boris Petrovich Sheremetev leads a Russian military division with assistance from Tatar and Kalmyk mercenaries in a counter-attack into Swedish-controlled Finland. Swedish imperial garrison regiments retreat to more defensible positions in Satakunta, Tavastia, and near the regional capital at Abo.
  • Swedish siege engineers begin construction on several small fortresses and outposts surrounding the Finnish capital at Abo.
  • Russian shipwrights in St. Petersburg begin construction on multiple large warships to establish naval control in the Baltic Sea.
  • A small fleet of Russian trade vessels is attacked and captured by pirates in the Baltic Sea. Russian naval authorities in Ingria report suspicions that the piracy may be the work of the newly-formed Warsaw Confederation operating out of ports in Pomerelia.
  • Qing Dynasty representatives arrive at the Prussian capital of Konigsberg to negotiate a potential trade arrangement between Prussia and China.
  • Dutch general Frederik Johan van Baer and Prussian general Leopold von Anhalt-Dessau attempt a coordinated encirclement of the Franco-Spanish forces in Belgium by means of a simultaneous Dutch siege of Brussels and two-pronged Prussian assault through Luxembourg and Liege bypassing the French defensive lines in the Brabant. Van Baer's forces are able to siege the Spanish garrison at Brussels into submission and capture the city, with most remaining Spanish forces in the area retreating to Namur in the south. Prussian officers attempt to persuade local authorities in Luxembourg to open roadways to Prussian forces and dismiss local Spanish garrisons in exchange for protection, but are unsuccessful in these negotiations, and von Anhalt-Dessau is left with no choice but to take Luxembourg by force. Prussian cavalry regiments are able to quickly gain ground in the outlying Luxembourgian countryside, while Prussian infantry and cannon regiments launch a siege assault upon Luxembourg City itself. Van Baer's Dutch forces make contact with a northern detachment of von Anhalt-Dessau's Prussian forces and launch a successful combined assault upon Liege. In response to the Prussian and Dutch attacks, Spanish forces begin fortifying positions near Namur, Marienbourg, and Ramillies, and additional French reinforcements from Normandy and Burgundy are sent to defend Franco-Spanish supply lines into the region and assist in the French defensive line in the Brabant, now the last major obstacle in the way of complete Dutch control of the Netherlands.
  • Dutch colonial governors in overseas possessions attempt to promote Dutch Republican nationalism amongst the native populations, but are largely unsuccessful, even to the extent of small reactionary anti-colonialist factions arising in Trinidad, South Africa, and the Dutch East Indies.
  • Civil engineers in Holland begin construction on a series of windmill-based pump systems to drain water from the Zuyderzee and create polders. However, unfavorable tidal conditions throughout the winter of 1703 and spring of 1704 impede work on the project, and by June of 1704, the pump systems remain largely incomplete, with no additional land reclaimed from the Zuyderzee.
  • Several Dutch merchant captains attempting to capitalize on Britain's loss of primacy in trans-Atlantic naval commerce report a significant increase in the frequency of attacks by Spanish, French, and Mauretanian pirates.
  • An assembly of Muslim clerics and scholars is convened in the Mughal capital of Akbarabad to reach a compromise regarding the secularization of madrasas in the empire. Muslim scholars working in the madrasas agree to gradually integrate the al-Ma'qul style of education. However, unrest increases amongst the more fundamentalist wing of the Muslim population in Hindustan, with some citizens voicing concerns that the current Mughal administration is taking a significantly less pro-Islamic stance on civil matters compared to its predecessors. Despite the unrest amongst Hindustani Muslims, many of the empire's non-Muslim subjects are appeased by the results of the assembly, with several Hindu citizens sending donations to regional governors to fund the construction of secular and Hindu madrasas.
  • Mughal imperial regiments begin advancing into Maratha-controlled Bijapur, but are flanked by retaliating Maratha forces near Kolhapur. The Mughals are forced to retreat into Ahmadnagar, and the Marathas are able to recapture the forts at Vishalgad and Panhalgad with little resistance from the local militia.
  • Mughal administrators begin incentivizing wealthy nobles throughout the empire to promote the works of local artists, artisans, musicians, and calligraphers. Indo-Persian artforms begin to see a resurgence in the more metropolitan areas of the empire in the following months, and governors report a slight decrease in unrest in most regional capitals.

1/2: Piracy, one of the least pleasant things for a trade based nation to deal with. Time to start hunting them down.

3: Austria is in two wars at once. Let's extend some kind of monetary aid.

4/5: Educated people are valuable people. Let's aid education in Venice.

[1] Silence the unrest in the colonies. We shall hear out those that are unhappy, and try to meet their demands.
[2-3] All the Netherlands, be they north or south, are to be one. We shall push away the Franco-Spanish opressors!
[4] The Zuyderzee shall not stop us again. We are Dutch. We are masters of the seas. We take what is rightfully ours!
[5] The Prussians are the only ones that can be trusted right now. To improve relations, we shall send diplomats and trade princes. Together, we shall bring the Hansa to the entire world.

1-5. The Pincer's jaws are closing in, now to clasp our enemy completely. The Dutch are planning on moving out of Belgium and pushing south, we must keep up the momentum. The Spanish and French are going to overstretch their line by rushing in reinforcements, like a long cord waiting to be cut by a sword. We will unite our two armies into a formidable force, and will link up with the Dutch, but now we just have to decide where and how the hammer should strike.

The Spanish and French are frantically trying to hold onto their defenses and forts, we must take advantage of this! If we simply ignore both Namur and Mariembourgh there is risk they will try to mobilize both their armies and outflank us from two sides as we press forward.

We must bait the turtles to sit still. To do that, our combined army will need to move close and hug the walls of Namur itself. As the army moves on, part of it will set up siege operations and battle lines against Namur. We are to trick them into believing the whole of our force is to lay siege to Namur, and that might be enough to bait them on the defensive. It also means our army is well distanced from Mariembourg's forces.

In reality, the rest of our army is to push on to link up with the dutch and close the trap, crush the reinforcements as they arrive before they can bolster any standing army. With luck, we can catch them or push them between us and our enemies.
