The GameEdit


A War against Granada is begun by Castille and Portugal. The Marinids are invaded and lose all their borders to Portugal,a treaty is signed forcing Morocco to drop out of the war and hand over the Rif. A Moroccan Confederation is formed in rebellion against the Marinids and the Moroccan Civil War begins with neither side families joining in. Bayern-Munchen's rulers go tyrannical and the Portuguese being invited to take the throne they happily oblige and the former rulers are drowned.

The King of Portugal marries the Queen of Luxembourg gaining control over Brandenburg and Luxembourg.Both spouses died of a brief plague.

England is on the run in France thanks to Joan of Arc and a new French alliance with Burgundy and Scotland. and now sits in fear as their enemies advance on their last major holding on the continent, Normandy. England is further worried after the ongoing Welsh revolt and continuous losses against France. The long war has weakened England, with Wales attempting to seize independence and rebellion rising in Ireland. However France has suffered extreme damage and losses in the Hundred Years War, and their king has lost a lot of power with numerous areas having gained autonomy while the largest noble houses are almost independent and vying for the throne.

The vast conglomerate of states that is the Holy Roman Empire is disunited. Archduke Frederick V of Austria is able to grasp the title of King of the Romans and his coronation as Holy Roman Emperor is planned to happen in Rome in 1453.

The Ottoman Empire, having conquered much of Anatolia, now turns its attention on Constinantinople, having developed their forces around the city for the last 20 years.

The Pope, sick of dealing with the squabbling dukes that rule parts of the Partimony of St. Peter, decides to slowly unite them within the Papal States, without their suspicion before it is too late.

The Teutonic Knights are disunited, the Prussian and Livonian orders disillusioned with each other, weakening them to a Poland-Lithuania that, though large and powerful, has only a coastline on the Black Sea. With Constantinople on the verge of falling, the Polish-Lithuanians need a Baltic port.

Denmark has united the Scandinavian nations and conquered several HRE states in the north. But the powerful Russia and the HRE are still threats, while a land link with Sweden's Finland is needed.

Novgorod is worried by the growing power of Moscovy who may soon be able to dominate the other lesser Russian states. However, both still are under the heel of the weakening Golden Horde.

Japanese pirates take a devastating toll on Chinese shipping thanks to the backward naval theory of the current Chinese Emperor that prevents China from doing anything. However, China is powerful beyond belief on land, with two vassals: Dai Viet and Korea. However Dai Viet is gaining strong independence movements helped by their recent destruction of the Champa Kingdom...

Naples regains control over their lands and gain independence

The Khmer Empire has fallen, creating a possibility for Thai expansion to start going east instead of north, if they so choose.

India is in chaos after being sacked by the Timurid Empire. However, the Muslims have already devastated much of Hindu India, yet Vijayanagar still remains strong enough to resist...

The Mamluk Sultanate seizes control over Aq Qoyunlu. This is because of an assassination of the entire Qoyunlar Royal Family and the Mamluks defeating the assassins making Aq Qoyunlu vassals

The Aztec have arrived in Central America from somewhere... Powerful warriors, they are hired by Zapotec city states to fight battles and with a decent amount of backstabbing they hold the most powerful position in Central America, envied by all other states. However, Chichen Itza, the most powerful of the Mayan City States, may yet be able to unite their brethren against this foe

In Africa, Ethiopia is the only Christian nation in an Africa dominated by Muslims and native religions. Ethiopia seeks to spread the word of the Lord, by force if necessary.

Note:go to Territories (Satus of Era) and post your nation and information.

New turn time!


Bosnia begins experiences tensions between five groups, the Croats (who support annexation to Croatia), the Westerners (who support vassalization to Naples-Savoy), the Serbs (who want the Southern areas to go to Serbia), the Confederates (who support the Serbs and say the rest should go under an equal Confederation), and the Bosnian Nationalists (who rule the country and say no change). No Civil War yet.
