Basic RulesEdit

  • One turn is a year.
  • Game Starts in 1390
  • One player per country, one player may choose a colony if the colony has more than 50 years and it's stable.However you can control or allow other players to control vassals, Puppets or protectorates
  • Game is archived every 20 years.
  • Be plausible, Over expansionism in desert territories or heavily montainous territories is unlikely and fairly difficult. and border expansion will be determined by the environment and the geography.


Each nation has an expansion potential, meaning that any nation has the plausibility of expanding beyond its current borders and conquering regions without any need of warring or declaring war.Instead by expanding its territories. However this expansion takes in consideration different specifics. such as expanding towards a region means that you will take territories depending on their natural borders (Mountains, rivers, forests and others) while the warring towards a region actually means that the entire region (if under on big confederational tribe) may allow you to easily conquer the region caring not of the topographic characteristics.


The colonial era starts around 1460-1475 in this timeline. the First colonial nation will be chosen randomly by an RNG in 1440 - 1450 to be fair.

Age Size (px)
0- 25 years 20 Pixels
25 - 50 years 40 pixels
50 - 75 years 50 pixels
75 - 100 years 60 pixels
100 - 125 years 80 pixels
125 - 150 years 100 pixels
150 - 200 years 200 pixels

Media:Exemplum.ogg However, nation's colonial expansion may be decreased if some sort of crisis or important conflict occurs (if France is annexed for a small period of time to Germany it loses some of its colonial rate or reverts to the previous stage of colonial expansion).

Vassalage and Puppet statesEdit


you can vassalize a nation after a five year period of continuous attempts of bringing said nation to your ruling whether by force or by culture, the abilities of a Vassal state can rival to those of the main nation of your control, with only the exception that the colonial expansion you do with the vassal will be taken out of the main nation expansion rate.

  • Vassals - They can have colonies but under a perpetual 5 Px expansion rate  or in the case of that the main nation posses two or more vassals with a coastline it can have more, 5 pixels per each vassal, either for the main nations use or for one vassal of theirs.
  • Vassals are basically forced to join war in the case of that the main nation joins, so if Per example France invades Burgundy, Navarre would have to join the war as well.
  • Vassal can have relatively independent status from their main nations with the difference of having an appointed ruler and some cultural influence from the main nation.
  • Vassals can have vassals, although the main nations may not have direct control and thus are more puppet states than vassals to the main nation.


Puppet states are nations heavily influenced by one main nation, but that are not directly ruled by the main nation, or by an appointed leader, the puppets won't necessarily join the war of the main nation, and can have a colonial expansion rate of its own, but it can be given up to the main nation, this nations can easily fall out of someone's influence in a rather fast speed, they as well have some abilities

  • Puppets can be vassals of a vassal nation or occupied territories with self proclaimed government, their military and culture may be very different from its parent nation.
  • Puppets colonial rates are the same of the main nations, and the puppet nations can't sell without retribution a colony or settlement unless gained in war or exchanged for other territories.
  • Puppets can't be controlled by the nations, so it may not aid its parent nation in war.

Casus BelliEdit

the Casus belli points are given to All states and can only be given one specific depending on the reasons ingame of the War, its similar to the Motive points but Specifically based in Ingame information

  • Reconquest: +10 - it means any Campaign that Refers to one single nation facing another nation that Represents the Opposite or that are seen as enemy (Say the Caliphate of Cordoba and Castille or the Franks)
  • Crusade: +8 it means any Religious based assault at an Enemy of the Opposite religion (Ex Spanish-Venetian coalition against the Ottomans) of two or more Nations against one or more nations
  • Throne Claims: +6 - +2 , Six if the Nation claiming the other's throne has actual grounds ( say aragon and naples) +4 if the nation has no grounds at all,
  • Intervention: +5 it means any state intruding an ally or enemy state to Keep or aid the current Government (mainly used for Vassals or Allies in Civil war)
  • Self Defense: +4 it means if the nation is invaded or attacked by a enemy without reason
  • Imperial Manifesto: +4 , it means any sort of Pro imperialist movement that portrays one nation as Superior to all
  • Irredentism-Nationalism: +2 though not Present in this specific era it can be said as any movement that enforces the believe to unify an ethnic group under one same banner (Say the French taking over the Gaul, Spain taking over Hispania and Venice doing the same with Italy)
  • No Casus Belli: -2, it means that if there's no real reason outside pure expansionism the player will be given -2 in the algorithm


  • it means the result, the result will be ((60/(60+55)*2)-1) = 0.0434782 =4.35% of land can be taken by the attacker, by the way i would like to say that at difference that most of the other map games to topple the government there would only be needed 30% of land taken, and to vassalize between 23 to 25% of land and if a nation has faced a war where 21 % of its land has been taken but more than ten years have passed even if you take the other 9% you can't annex the nation, because, depending on how strong was the nation prior, (Ex Eastern Roman empire during the Arabian invasion of North Africa) to the war, the government is likely to have already recover of the war, this is mainly to avoid a Over expansionism of Nations and to be as much plausible as possible, as well as to avoid powerful nations to be annexed by smaller nations just because they took the 30%
  • another thing is, that a city-state, or a small state (Luxembourg-Venice) Can't annex a Local power, even if they get 30% this is to avoid the Ottoman empire becoming Venetian or France falling to the Luxembourgish

Example WarEdit

Ottoman War of Eastern AnatoliaEdit

Ottoman CaliphateEdit

  • Location:Nearby +5, Mountainous -5,
  • Strength:Side with Greater Population +8,Huge army +6, tired military -2, Control of the Seas +2, Develop 0 (Ottoman Empire +5, Egypt +5)
  • Tactical Advantage: Attackers advantage +2
  • Random: 2/4:0.5 -- 5
  • Motive: To gain land +2
  • Casus Belli:No casus belli -2
  • Total:31

Dulkadir-Ramadanids SultanatesEdit

  • Location: In the Country Within yours +6, Mountainous +9
  • Strength: Small army +4, Develop:+3, Allies (Dulkadir +5, Ramadanids +5)
  • Tactical Advantage: Defenders Advantage +4
  • Random: 1/1 = 1.0 - 10
  • Motive: Life or Death +10, Ramadanids +5 to aid a friendly nation (two motives for the two nations)
  • Casus Belli: Self Defense +5
  • Total:66


  • The war ends with ((66/(66+31)*2)-1) :0,360824 -- 36 % of the Ottoman Empire falls to the Dulkadir and Ramadanids Dynasty war lasts ((21*66)/31)=44.7096/8)5.5887*1.5) = 8,38305 -- the war last eight years

Like the previous example, the war will last ---- and the land taken will be ----, the important thing is that the algorithm is done considering any possible factor that may help or Make harder to defend a nation, this is to bring Plausible results to the game, in a war there can't be more than one motive, or more than one Casus belli

Special Nations and War RulesEdit

There are certain nations that although defeatible need to be taken in consideration as to when or why they fall, in europe these are France, a United Spain and Byzantium, for now, and in asia they are Arabia and china.

Being a special nation means that a nation of another religion outside the beliefs (Meaning Christianity vs Islam) can't fully take over them. this means that to take over them you would need something greater than only 33.33 percent.
