The Spanish empire is collapsing. Colonial ventures have failed and its hopes of looting the New World for the glory of its king have faded. Meanwhile, the British, Agoustan and Dutch projects for colonial power continue to expand; but the Indigenous peoples of those places are slowly but surely forming a new mandate: a mandate for power out of the hands of foreign empire.

East Asia’s giants are in decline or on the brink of grandeur. There, the power of the traditional empire is fading, and a new power - that of commerce - is rising. Nihon, Zhaowa, Syonan, Wu and Jochureon have fought before - and they shall fight again. South Asia and the Middle East watch their imperial forces fluctuate uncontrollably; and only time will tell if the Atouman Empire and Hindustan will stand the test of time.

Of course, Africa remains largely undisturbed. Religious colonisation has not penetrated into a vast interior of diverse peoples whom will be shaken when the giants of new arrive with desires of economic and political expansionism. Australia has been forced into the world - they had merely peered into the outside through a Syonanese window, and now its smashing has brought untold technology and trade from the British to its Northern shores. Will they survive and see the day sovereignty becomes a popular movement? History’s pages are being written - and only they shall know.

The world is changing, as it ever has, and nothing shall escape the unenviable march of history. Who will join the Kings of Men?

Credentials:

Sidewinder291102: I am the creator of Fractured, Honour and Patient which lasted 10, 22 and 21 turns respectively, as well as moderator in many a map game on this site and elsewhere.

TheSteampunkTotoro: I have been a moderator, NPC maker and Map Maker in a handful of minor map games. I also created the map game Post Mortem: Europa which was rather unsuccessful, But I took the role of acting Admin in the KdM franchise roughly halfway through KdM Chapter II, which ran for a whopping 37 turns!

TheCreator901: The first game I have ever administered was Continent of Darkness: Europe, which was successful until its end. KdM was the second and most successful of my games yet lasting for 27 turns. I created the KdM franchise and ran it until roughly halfway through Chapter II.

Batran99:I have participated in map games since the first map game on the wiki came out. I was manager, eventmaker, and held other staff positions for many major map games whom had found success and influence on how other map games are run, such as map games in The Future series (which I introduced the basic 4 sections for every turn; Military, Diplomacy, Government, and Economy) or Pandemic: Plague Z, along with countless others. I had helped advised for and wrote lore of many others such as a Bad Past or Delirium. Regarding KdM; I was involved as a player little after its creation, but didn't get deeply involved in events until later in KdM Chapter I or II.

Mod Events

  • Conquest of the Far East: With Varangia formally reuinited by the government of Sirtemne and Artturi-era military forces, the acquisition of what remained of Siberia was deemed top priority by Abylai Soikkola, the newly-inaugurated half-Kazakh Emperor of Varamgia. However, there was just a slight problem - Azure Cathay. It controlled most, if not all, suitable ports in the Sea of Okhotsk and had frequently supported Tungusic tribes in defending against Varangian incursion, despite its normalized relations with Varangia during Artturi's reign. With the Tungusics fully conquered by 1744, Azure Cathay began to view Varangia as a serious threat, thus beginning the militarization of its Siberian vassals and allying with the Ainu.

    Abylai Soikkola, however, was not having it. A tenacious man, having served well in both the governments of Artturi's Keisaria and Sailan's Sirtemne, knew conflict when he saw it. Determined to always be a step ahead, he declared war without warning on Azure Cathay in 1754, marching into the Cathayan vassal of Shamasal. As a result, Emperor Fiyonggūl levied the Chukchi to invade Varangia, but to no avail. His own Cathayan forces proved unable to retake control of Shamasal. In addition, with the local Evenki population decimated by the invading Varangians, the Cathayans could not rely on native resistance. However, the war was not yet finished, as the Cathayan vassal of Nyangyaci still held strong and had begun forays into Varangian territory.

  • Dreamtime Nightmares: By the beginning of the 1750s, the Colony of Yolngu Australia (along with Noongar) has reached contact with the aborigine states of Wirangu and Nawu (having slowly integrated or allied with the Luritja, Anangu, Arabana, and Kokatha peoples over the last 100 years). Everything would be normal for the old Yolngu process of integrating their "neighbors" into the grand Council, but those times are almost long gone, as with the Australian Proclamation by governor Annaliese King has enabled the British colony to consider other options. British contacts with the southern Aborigine tribes and states in the past years has some fruition of making states like Yuggera, Eora, and Noongar become aligned with them. However, other states who are now more aware of a large Albion presence beyond their lands has grown to fear and resist such rule. Yolngu and Noongar went ahead and set an example by forcibly integrating Wirangu and Nawu. Fearing the growing threat, Kulin (of Southeast Australia) has reached out to its neighbors Gunai and Yuin roughly around 1753 to discuss about the threat. At the meetings, they learned that they are not the only ones to share this fear. Wiradjuri and Bundjalung later joined the discussion, with all 5 states (with some representatives of neighboring individual tribes) meeting up in Kulin. Most concluded that they (as later historians interpreted it) must form a united front to deter this growing threat to the North. Most agreed to form a loose Aborigine Confederacy (although probably with a fancier name), though some like Bundjalung decided to opt out.
  • The Uharibifu - [2]: A second vector accelerates the refugee crisis spiralling across Africa: The Kingdom of Orungu. Its expansionist dreams have taken it to the Kongolese Basin and with it the mass enslavement and conquest of dozens of indigenous peoples whom escape its behaviours; the most famous of which are the broad Lingala Union, which forms directly in response to Orungu expansion in the region. The slave trade expands on a practically industrial scale; the Kingdom funded directly by Hispania as a de jure Protectorate in its continued expansion. The consequences across the region spiral further.

NPC Events

  • Yuggera: Being already used to British presence by sea since their first contacts years ago, they were surprised to see an expedition from Yolngu meeting within their borders. After learning that the large colony to the North is finally able to march a sizeable force (and connect to them) via coastlines, they align themselves to the colony and rejected an invitation to the meetings of other concerned aborigine states.
  • Aceh: The Queen, justifiably worried about the potential for being dragged down in a Burmese power struggle, enables the departure of South Thotan from the formal Acehnese sphere.
  • Sokoto: Launches a joint Franco-Sokotan invasion of the Berber kingdom of Kel Ahggar.
  • Kingdom of New Butwe: Formed by various exiles from the former Butwe government, the Kingdom of New Butwe marches southwards into the South African interior, displacing Bamangwato and other natives as it moves to take control in the region. Seeking alternatively French or Albionite backing in order to survive, it sends an open letter to European states for its survival, claiming to be the creator of a 'new homeland for a people as impressive as any European person'.

    • Co-Protector of Maorisy: Harifanja (B 1714 - Age 40, alive) (R 1743 - Present)
  • Economy: The economy of Matagaskar is based mainly on agriculture and fishing as well as trade, mostly with the Swahili states of East Africa but also other foreign merchants. The Malagasy economy stands as one of the strongest and most developed in all of Sub-Saharan Africa, mostly due to the effect of foreign contact. Matagaskar controls the entire island of the same name and holds influence in parts of East Africa. The Fanery is the traditional currency of Matagaskar.
  • Allies: Mtende, Pemba, Bangalla, Kilwa and the Order of Avesta (vassals), Mutapa (personal alliance), Albion (declaration of friendship)
  • Clients: Mtende, Pemba, Bangalla, Kilwa and the Order of Avesta (vassals)
  • Capital: Antananarivo (national capital and the capital of Imerina), Mahajanga (Iboina), Toliara (Ibara), Toamasina (Betsimisaraka)
  • Demographics:
    • Population: ca 816 000 total
    • Antananarivo: 9 700
    • Mahajanga: 9 100
    • Toamasina: 5 400
    • Manakara: 3 700
    • Ambanja: 2 700
    • Morafenobe: 2 900
    • Toliara: 2 500
    • Antsiranana: 2 200
    • Moroni: 1 200
    • Antsirabe: 1 100
    • Fipetrahana: 900
    • Amorontsiraka: 900
    • Rural regions: ca 779 000
    • Ethnicities: 90% Malagasy (consisting of 18 ethnic groups, the three largest of which, in order, are the Merina, Betsimisaraka and Sakalava), 5% Komoro Natives (Swahili), ca 4% Adnanite, >1% Albionite (Fort Dolphin and nearby areas)
    • Religion: 89% Tombovelan Zoroastrianism, 9,5% Anglican Christianity, 1,5% Haintenism (traditional Merina folklore)
  • Wars and Conflicts (italics: Potential War):
    • Malagasy Civil War and Split: The fragile tetrarchy falls apart completely when Andrianmanotronavalonimerina basically went “fuck it” and marched an army into Imerina, towards Antananarivo to attempt a coup. This army was intercepted however and as soon as the news broke out, basically all four co-emperors turned on each other and started a four-way civil war. Quickly the TSoA overthrew the Order of Rakotomazava in Antsirabe, executing the Grand Mobad and declaring the two holy orders to be unified under one leader: Tojosoa and the True Sons of Ahuras to be the new religious hierarchy of Matagaskar. Various religious leaders across Matagaskar obviously react differently, some rejecting this move while some embrace it.
    • Andrianmanotronavalonimerina and TSoA form a Zoroastrian alliance and it doesn’t take long before the christians of the southeast, united under the Kiadyist movement, rebel against Ibara. Andrianmanotronavalonimerina had already started to try and undo what had been done for the christians when the tetrarchy was established so with the advent of civil war the Kiadyists decide there’s no better time to protect themselves and rebel against oppressive rule. Practically all the overseas territories become independent. Matagaskar has now collapsed in on itself and to see possibilities for what this will lead to: read “The Aftermath” under events.
  • Military: Due to Matagaskar being a (mostly) rural realm, a large amount of units can be raised for warfare, but usually about 1% of the population is the most trained and prepared soldiers that can be drafted. Levies can also be raised from our vassal territories. Parentheses means the deployed units in cases where not all units are deployed for war.
    • I’m way too lazy to do military stats for each faction...
    • Deployed units: None
    • Total (1%): 8 100
    • 2 080 Spearmen
    • 900 Swordsmen
    • 2 000 Musketeers
    • 700 Crossbowmen
    • 1 500 Light Cavalry
    • 1 100 Fossa Warriors
  • Navy:
    • 25 Adananita class ships
    • 18 Mer'ana class ships
    • 16 transport ships
  • Diplomacy:
    • The different factions engage in diplomacy separately, some of it is described in events.
  • Events:
    • Map of the subdivisions of Matagaskar. Note that the High Chiefdom of Analamanga is now known as the High Chiefdom of Antananarivo since the city was renamed.

      Before the Storm: 1752. Emperor Andriamasinavalona, who reigned for 39 years (the longest of any monarch so far), has passed away. His reign was quite the roller coaster, many ups and many downs. Generally he was a good ruler, but some of his decisions have led to great consequences for his empire. As he decided, his four eldest children are each given some land of the empire to rule on their own while simultaneously working together to hold the entire empire together. This is kind of like herding cats however… anyway. Each child was given a domain corresponding to two High Chiefdoms (only one in the case of Andrianmanotronavalonimerina, also the High Chiefs/Chieftesses still exist and just end up under the co-Emperor/Empress’ authority).
    • Andriamborosy, the eldest son and twin brother of Reninandriankotofananina, was given the central lands of Imerina as well as part of the west coast (the High Chiefdoms of Antananarivo, formerly Analamanga, and Morafenobe. Reninandriankotofananina was given the northernmost lands, called Iboina, after the Sakalava Boina dynasty that has reigned on the western coast for very long (she gets the High Chiefdoms of Morafenobe and Ambanja). Andrianmanotronavalonimerina was given only one High Chiefdom since there only are 7, but to make up for it he is given the largest one: Toliara, the very south. His lands become known as Ibara, the name coming from the Bara people who are the largest ethnic group situated fully in the south (also there was a Bara Kingdom before). Finally Andrianjakanavalonamandimby is given the last two High Chiefdoms, those of Toamasina and Manakara, spanning the east coast, inhabited mainly by the Betsimisaraka people. Due to this as well as the former Betsimisaraka Kingdom, his lands become known as just that: Betsimisaraka.
    • Now all of a sudden four people need to get along and rule the empire together. But due to their differences and own desires to be the sole ruler of the whole island, this doesn’t go very well. Not many discussions and meetings happen, almost making each realm de facto independent already, and there are many disagreements, mainly on the topic of religion but also foreign affairs and other things. Each realm becomes quite different, most notably Ibara deciding to get back to oppress the christians again and once again try to reconvert the southeast. To avoid this all being boring, basically this tetrarchy system lasts for about two months before it falls apart. Read Wars and Conflicts for the start of the war.

      The situation in Matagaskar by the end of 1752.

    • The Aftermath (aka what all these parties are and what they want):
      • Mainland: Really these all kinda just want to be the sole emperor, there’s not much of an ideological struggle here or anything, it’s a war of succession in a weird way, but there are still differences between the claimants.
    • Emperor Andriamborosy (Imerina): He is much like his father and basically just wants to be emperor because he’s the eldest son and he thinks he should have priority over his twin sister. He wants to run the empire as it was run by his dad and he also kind of has a eldest sibling superiority complex going on. He also holds the capital and the former Empress lives within his domain so he does have that going for him. However, he does still love his twin sister and if he had to, he would ally with her against a bigger threat.
    • Empress Reninandriankotofananina (Iboina): She isn’t too different from her brother in terms of views and such but she is a bit more “progressive”. By that I mean she is considerably more for expanding the rights of the christian community and having the two religions exist peacefully within the same empire and she’s also very much for more cooperation with the outside world and especially Europe. Her and her twin brother do have a bit of a special relationship that only twins can have (if that makes any sense at all and no I don’t mean an incestuous relationship what the fu-) so there is still possibility for peace between Imerina and Iboina.
    • Emperor Andrianmanotronavalonimerina (Ibara): He is very much the opposite of Reninandriankotofananina (jesus christ the names), probably because he’s a member of TSoA. He hates christianity with a passion and so obviously, Ibara is allied to TSoA and well Andrianmanotronavalonimerina’s goal is basically just get rid of the christians for good and also reunite Matagaskar. He’s in control of basically the entire south, where both the christians are but also the zoroastrian communities that hate the christians the most (cause their lands are the ones getting affected by the spread of christianity) which gives him quite a bit of support. He does want to conduct more affairs in Africa but is incredibly untrustworthy of Europeans, mainly the English and thus also wants to take back Fort Dolphin. Obviously he absolutely does not tolerate his elder sister (Reninandriankotofananina) and his younger brother (Andrianjakanavalonamandimby)
    • Emperor Andrianjakanavalonamandimby (Betsimisaraka): Andrianjakanavalonamandimby kind of is the most reluctant out of all the claimants. With that I mean he didn’t really want to be Emperor in the first place but when this whole tetrarchy got set up he was the one most willing to put differences aside and start discussions and get shit done, unfortunately it didn’t work. In terms of views, he is also kind of status quo-ish but he wants to see more power to the monarch and the court and less power to any religion. He tolerates christianity but is not really pro-christian. Also he is very much for giving the legitimized children of Andriamasinavalona (born of his other wives) the royal privileges they deserve. This is kind of a PR move, making many of those children choose his side.
      • Others:
      • The True Sons of Ahuras:
    • Leader: Tojosoa (April 1752 - May 1752), Ajesaia (May 1752 - Present). Capital: Ushah.
    • The True Sons of Ahuras is a secret society that was created when Andriamasinavalona gave the christians rights, indirectly weakened the Order of Rakotomazava and also replaced the Grand Mobad with someone more loyal to the crown. This society’s goal was to restore Zoroastrian hegemony in the empire. The society spread quickly and went under the radar and eventually, the leader Ajesaia’s protege: Tojosoa was successfully elected new leader of the Order of Avesta, which is subordinate to the Order of Rakotomazava. Tojosoa and the True Sons of Ahuras have taken over the Order of Avesta pretty much completely and are in charge of their lands, the OTL Seychelles. Not long after, Ajesaia took Tojosoa’s position, having basically just used him to take power. Tojosoa, however, is loyal to Ajesaia and is content with his new position, also the two different orders still exist within the TSoA and Tojosoa rules the Order of Avesta.
    • Ajesaia has allied with his fellow zealous zoroastrian Andrianmanotronavalonimerina. The TSoA look to restore zoroastrian power in Matagaskar while getting rid of, or at least severely weakening the christian community. The TSoA members that are part of the Order of Rakotomazava rebel in the holy order’s headquarters in Antsirabe and that’s the TSoA’s main contribution on the actual battlefield, supporting Ibara. From Ushah the TSoA use the confiscated Avestan navy to their advantage against their enemies and also to be able to reach Ibara.
      • The Kiadyists (Christian Matagaskar):
    • Leader: Kiady Manasoa. Capital: Taolagnaro (not on the map).
    • The Kiadyist movement isn’t fully united per se. Some of the members just want equal rights to zoroastrians, some have a burning hatred for zoroastrianism and want to convert Matagaskar completely to christianity and some just fight to protect their home. The Kiadyists were dragged into the war due to the actions of Ibara and so they are their main enemy. Kiady Manasoa also pledges to the people of Fort Dolphin that the fort will be protected by his faction, in return for how the English helped the christians previously. He personally doesn’t expect the English to help the Kiadyists in this conflict, but he would appreciate it. Kiady himself is willing to ally with a different faction on the condition that the christians are given what they want. Obviously allying with Ibara or TSoA is never going to happen.
      • The Soahily Coast vassals:
    • Leader: These are individual states with individual leaders but they are all members of the Soahily Council. Capital: Individual ones, but the council meets up in Kilwa.
    • The states of the Soahily Council are basically all independent, but they’re still close allies. Under the new name of the United Swahili Cities, they are looking to try and not get too involved with the civil war and instead focus on their own stuff, but should they be approached by a faction they may join if the terms are favourable to them. Angoche Island also does fall under the jurisdiction of Bangalla and under the Soahily Council alliance as a whole, but it pretty much governs itself due to its isolation from the rest.
      • The Protectorate of Maskareina:
    • Leader: Harifanja. Capital: Amorontsiraka.
    • Harifanja just kinda goes along with this and declares the Maskareina Kingdom to be independent. It’s not completely independent however. The Maskareina people can survive on their own but they are in need of importing things in order to truly thrive, so Harifanja does favour Betsimisaraka since they hold the eastern ports of the empire. The TSoA also has interest in gaining Harifanja’s new realm as an ally, but it’s not the easiest thing to do since Harifanja isn’t particularly devout.
      • The Chiefdom of Kômôro:
    • Leader: Abdu IV. Capital: Moroni.
    • Honestly the Kômôro people don’t really know what to do. They’re de facto independent right now but they just want to chill on their islands, like they have done for centuries. They are favourable to Iboina, since that faction is closest to them and has the easiest access to them. Also they are not big fans of Ibara and TSoA due to their very fundamentalist views and the Kômôros want to hold onto their rights to practice Haintenism, a right that they’ve had for centuries. But all around, the Chiefdom of Kômôro is up for grabs.
    • I take my bow, for now: Damn time flies sometimes doesn’t it. I started in Madagascar back in the 1390s and have stayed in this area, forming out lore for over 300 in-game years. It’s been really fun but I’m stopping here and leaving KdM for a while. I will come back at some point probably, maybe I’ll even return to the little (okay it's actually big but whatever) island that could. Thanks people who have interacted with me during this time and also a big thank you and big respect to the staff for all the effort they put into this game. /TrocaNero

Notable Companies and Organizations


McCarthy Arms Company (MAC):


McCarthy Arms Company (MAC) is the main firearms and cannon manufacturer for the British Military. Though other smaller companies exist, none have the prestige nor manufacturing capabilities MAC has.


Produced models:

FL1610 “Wasp MkI” Flintlock Musket (1610)

  • The first musket in the series of muskets made in response to “Manufacture d'armes de Châtellerault” and their flintlock musket.
  • Hastily made, the musket has various issues, and has a higher-than-usual casualty rate among those who use it due to the tendency for the musket’s barrel to implode.
  • Due to this reputation, the musket was given an additional nickname: “Barrel of Surprises”

FL1610E1 “Wasp MkII” Flintlock Musket (1611)

  • A modified L1610 that doesn't implode (more than most muskets of the era).

FL1610E2 “Wasp MkIII” Flintlock musket (1612)

  •  The version of the musket that was used by the British Military when they joined the League Wars the same year.
  • This musket features a slightly redesigned barrel, slightly increasing the range and improving the reliability of the musket even more.

FL1610E3 “Wasp MkIV” Flintlock Musket (1614)

  • Essentially the Wasp MkIII, but its components are simplified a bit, allowing for easier production.

FL1616 “Honey MkI” Flintlock Musket (1616)

  • A modified version of the Wasp MkIV for use in hunting.
    • Essentially a simplified version of the Wasp MkIV for commercial purchase
  • Also becomes the model of musket that was exported to allies during the League Wars

FL1610E4 “Wasp MkV” Flintlock Musket (1619)

  • A version of the Wasp MkIV that is made from Yolngu steel, giving the musket more durability

FL1616E1 “Honey MkII” Flintlock Musket (1621)

  • An improved version of the Honey MkI, taking feedback from its users when making said improvements.

FL1625 “Hornet MkI” Flintlock Musket (1625)

  • The successor to the Wasp series of muskets, featuring a slightly simplified design for the firing mechanism, allowing for easier construction of the musket, though early versions of the musket has issues due to kinks that weren’t figured out (though not as bad as was seen on the first Wasp muskets)

FL1625E1 “Hornet MkII” Flintlock Musket (1626)

  • Sent into the field in late 1626, the musket fixes the issues seen in the Hornet MkI.

FL1616E2 “Honey MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1627)

  • An improvement over the Honey MkII that features some improvements that were seen on the Hornet-series of muskets.

FL1625E2 “Hornet MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1632)

  • An improved version of the Hornet MkII, and is the primary musket used by the BMAC Company in its early years.

FL1636 “Hornet 2 MkI” Flintlock Musket (1636)

  • Originally just a simple upgrade, the Hornet 2 musket had so many improvements made to it that the company reclassified it as its own series of muskets.
  • Included in the many changes made is the narrower barrel. Though the bullets are smaller, due to a smaller round being used, the bullets are faster, have longer ranges, slightly faster reload, and are marginally more accurate than the original version of the Hornet.
  • Though the musket doesn’t have as good of a stopping power, its improvements arguably offset this weakness.

FL1636E1 “Hornet 2 MkII” Flintlock Musket (1642)

  • Modifications related to its reliability in hot, humid regions are added to the musket.
  • In addition, this is the first musket (used by the British) that was able to mount a bayonet.

XRS1652 “Thunderer” Experimental Revolving Sidearm (1652)

  • An experimental 3-shot revolver produced in extremely few quantities (around 56 or so)
  • The idea is for rounds to be pre-loaded into the revolving barrel of the pistol, which is locked in place by three pins when firing. Once a bullet is expended, the user delaches the pins and manually rotates the barrel before locking it back in place. This process is tedious and doesn’t give the gun that much of an advantage over normal conventional pistols on account of the cumbersome barrel, in addition to the pistol’s unreliability (even by standards of the time)

FL1656 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1656)

  • The third version of the Hornet musket, which took the FL1636E1 model of musket and made the musket easier to produce. Still features the capability for using a bayonet that is secured under the barrel of the musket from the FL1636E1.

FL1656-EXP “Honey 2” Flintlock Musket (1657)

  • Essentially an FL1636E1 musket that is cailbered in the conventional ammo size used by most nations. Also features the capability for usage of a plug bayonet.
  • Since both this musket and the “Hornet 3” musket have the same catalog name, the “Honey 2” was given the -EXP notation at the end to distinguish it as the export musket.

FS1659 “Thunderer 2” Flintlock Sidearm (1659)

  • A non-revolver version of the XRS1652 musket. This sidearm is provided both to officers and cavalry units in the military and only in small numbers.

FL1656E1 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1666)

  • Slight improvement to the Hornet 3 that was used in the Anglo-Dutch War. The gun features a slight improvement to its accuracy as well as a better mechanism for the bayonet, which is now custom-built for the musket itself and can double as a knife when necessary.

FL1686 “Super Hornet” MkI Flintlock Musket

  • A modernized version of the Hornet 3 Musket. This version of the musket is even easier to maintain and manufacture than the Hornet 3.

FL1686E1 “Super Hornet” MkII Flintlock Musket (1702)

  • Updated version of first version of the Super Hornet that has slightly increased range and versatility.

FL1686E2 “Super Hornet” MkIII Flintlock Musket (1712)

  • Small changes are made to increase the reliability of the weapon

FL1686E3 “Super Hornet” MkIV Flintlock Musket (1724)

  • Further upgrade to the Super Hornet, increasing range slightly.

PC1686E4 “Super Hornet” MkV Percussion Cap Musket (1729)

  • A modification of the Super Hornet that comes with a percussion-cap, increasing the effectiveness and reliability of British weapons, especially in poor weather.
  • Done while development of a true successor is in the works
  • In addition, upgrade kits were exported across the country in order to upgrade the FL1686E3 to the E4 modification.

XPCBL1729 “Lightning Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1729)

  • The experimental rifle created by McCarthy Arms Company. Due to the nature of the components, the thought was to make an excellent weapon that could be used by the few rather than a mass-producible weapon that can be used by many.
  • The main feature of this weapon is the breech loading mechanism with the rifle, allowing for a faster reload than what can be seen with conventional muskets of the time.

PC1730 “BumbleBee” MkI Percussion Cap Musket (1730)

  • A rifle developed by the British following the acquisition of percussion-cap technology, the McCarthy Arms Company rushed to develop a percussion cap musket of their own, resulting in the Lightning Bee.
  • Though its early renditions had “teething issues”, these problems would be rectified in 1731.

PC1730E1 “BumbleBee” MkII Percussion Cap Musket (1731)

  • Models of the Lightning Bee MkI with many of the issues found in the MkI model ironed out

PCBL1729E1 “Lightning Bee” MkI Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1734)

  • The first production model of the Lightning Bee, though only produced in a few numbers.

PC1730E2 “BumbleBee” MkIII Percussion Cap Musket (1738)

  • More reliable version of the BumbleBee MkII. Also featured the capability to launch congreve rockets, though this variant is found in small numbers (PC1730E2-C)

XPCBL1742 “Rocket Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1742)

  • A “Lightning Bee” Rifle that is capable of mounting a congreve rocket that can be launched from the bayonet socket. A fuse is manually pit and the rocket is launched forward.
    • Due to the few number of rockets as well as the complexity of the breech loading mechanism, like the breechloading technology, only SPARTANS can be found with this weapon

PC1730E3 “BumbleBee” MkIV Percussion Cap Musket (1749)

  • Essentially the PC1730E2-C Musket that is more commonplace.


MAC Cannons: MAC continues to produce MAC Cannons (McCarthy Arms in a variety of calibers and sizes, ranging from small 6 pound field cannons to 32 pound naval cannons. At least in Britain, McCarthy Industries has the monopoly on the firearms industry.

Produced models:

2-pounder “snub-nose” MAC Cannon (1608)

  • Created for usage on Vinland longboats, more to fire on smaller vessels than anything else
  • Can be argued that muskets would be more effective than these small peashooters, but the extra punch is helpful

6-pounder medium field MAC Cannon (1578)

  • The main cannon used by both the British Royal Army and Marine Corps.
  • Also used on British Carrier Vessels

9-pounder “tickler” MAC Cannon

  • The lightest cannon used on British Warships (excluding Carriers)

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1588)

  • The mainstay cannon of British Warships

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1641)

  • An updated version of the 16-pounder cannon.

32-pounder “long-nose” MAC Cannon (1603)

  • Heaviest cannon that the British used. Reserved for the largest of British vessels.


Research and Development

  • The British Doctrine of Global Power (1743): As Britain expands throughout the world, questions are raised into how to protect British interests abroad. As such, the British decide on two things, which are enacted on immediately:
  1. Training of a local militia force that can hold down the fort; primarily only used in defensive situations, though can also participate as a reserve force to plug in holes and whatnot as necessary.
  2. Increase funding and the expansion of the British Marine Corps; these troops are going to be trained to be able to theoretically deploy anywhere in the world, and are to be recruited from every inch of the empire to allow the Marines to respond to any conflict anywhere at any time.
  • In addition, the British focus more of their efforts on their navy, since all of their territory is separated by the sea.
  • Outback Training
    • Due to the conflict in Africa beginning to heat up, troops are beginning to be trained in a similarly inhospitable area, in order to get troops accustomed to fighting in extremely arid regions such as British Galatoi
  • Torpedo Technology
    • In Nagasato, old weapons from the 1400’s have been rediscovered. As such, the British look into ways of updating this technology.
      • Development is put into determining how to implement these torpedoes into British naval doctrine
  • Improved Transportation
    • Due to most British interests economically existing in Asia, British engineers begin looking into economical ways to cut down on the time it takes for goods to be transported
      • Canals: Within British rivers, canal technology is being developed by Bridgewaters Waterworks (a company that specializes in canal technology), as British cargo boats are able to penetrate deeper into the British mainland
        • Through the efforts of Bridgewaters Waterworks, internal highways of water are being constructed around the England sector of mainland England.
      • Steam: Through the power of steam, engineers and designers brainstorm ways to use steam (created from burning either charcoal, wood, or coal) to power devices.

Diplomacy

  • Australia: Due to Anastasia King’s decree to unite Australia, tribes are forced to choose between aligning with the British or standing and fighting them.
    • Same to be said for those in Novus Silundia
  • Europe (Generally): Though not offered the top-line models, Britain does allow McCarthy Arms Company to sell some of their wares overseas to those willing to purchase them
  • Gujarat: Due to trading with locals of the region, British influence spreads through the area, though slowly.
  • Indian Nations: Seeing that the countries of India are friendly, the British East India Company reaches out to all the nations in the area, hoping to strengthen their ties with all nations and open up trade routes with all.
  • Jaisalmer: The British ask the government if it is possible for them to purchase a port city, or at least a location for British ships and merchants to operate out of.
    • In addition, Britain (through the McCarthy Arms Company) looks into local companies in the country in order to purchase them.
  • Matagaskar: Due to the Civil War that broke out, the governor of the island does two things in response:
  1. They reach out to whichever one of the organizations is located closest to the British town of Port Dolphin. The governor offers to supply them with British weaponry and support, if they are willing to cooperate
  2. Troops are requested to assist in keeping the peace (around Port Dolphin, at least)
  • Occitania: With tensions rising between France and England, the British reach out to Occitania to reaffirm the Occitanian-British relationship, as well as look into what the British can do to support their ally.
  • Vijayanagara: Due to trading with locals of the region, British influence spreads through the area, though slowly.


Allies

  • Galatoi: Trading partner with the BAKA company.
  • Naranga: British ally on the Asian mainland.
  • Occitania: British ally on the European mainland.
  • Toyotomi Shogunate: British ally (through the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company) in Asian area.
  • Vestkyst: Norwegian allies in the North Sea. The oldest ally of Britain, harkening back to the British Empire’s founding.
  • Yolngu: The furthest of Britain’s allies, the island-continent has metals far better than those in the region. As such, the majority of the trade from the region primarily consists of metals.


Events

  • The Unification of the Land Down Under (WiP):
    • The BAKA Gaikokuhito, now jointly in control of the country of Yolngu along with the tribal leaders of Yolngu.
    • With the assimilation of Yolngu into the British Empire came the additional baggage of the penultimate plan of Yolngu: the unification of Australia (name still a WiP)
    • The British begin to ramp up the process of claiming Australia, Tasmania, and Novus Silundia.
  • Expansion Beyond the Horizon:
    • Arcadian Colonies
      • The Northwest Trail: In an effort to try and create a safer (and shorter) route for supplies to travel to and from British Yolngu and British Nagasato, the BAKA Gaikokuhito and BFG Companies join forces to create a route that spans “from sea to shining sea”
        • From the first town of Port Novus Arcadia, British explorers begin charting the region, meeting various locals along the way. Many of these locals have never come into contact with those from the outside world.
        • Either way, the British are careful not to provoke any of the local powers as they chart out the regions of otl northern Washington and the southernmost bits of otl British Columbia.
    • Galatoi: As the British Marines maintain control in their region of Galatoi, Ebenezer King begins to make plans for an invasion of their neighbors in the region, with the goal of reuniting Galatoi.
      • Due to increasing hostilities in the region, more troops are being sent to the region as attacks are being made to varying degrees of success, but ultimately for naught.
        • Forces in Galatoi:
          • 7,500 British MPSM’s
          • 12,000 Marksman Infantry
          • 3,300 British Light Cavalry
    • India
      • The British East India Company hatches a plan to acquire more control over the continent
        • With the takeover of Gujarat, the British East India Company looks into establishing more trading ports in northern territories.
    • Yolngu
      • The combined efforts of Britain and Yolngu slowly spread throughout Australia, as the tribes of Australia became friendlier towards the two powers.
      • Nova Silundia: Much like the mainland, the British wrestled control of the island, and was successfully achieved in 1749.

Famous Vessels


HMS Victory (15XX)

  • Laid down in 15XX and launched in 15XX, the HMS Victory is a 50-gun First-class Frigate.
  • The namesake of her class, HMS Victory was the first pride-and-joy of the Royal Navy.
  • Famously captained by Admiral Francis Drake, the ship would lead the British navy to victory when it defeated the Spanish Armada, directly leading to one of the major reasons why Britain won in the Anglo-Spanish War in the late 16th century.
  • From there, it would also see combat in the League Wars as it ensured that those opposing Britain felt the wrath of her powerful broadside.
  • Eventually, the ship was retired in 1647, where it was put into the reserve fleet as a training vessel for new sailors.


HMS Fortune’s Bounty (1626)

  • An Olive-class Multi-purpose Merchant Frigate given to the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company from the British government. Laid in 1624 and left on its maiden voyage in 1626, the ship would find itself under the ownership of Fortuna King, a woman well-known for her assistance in the Wu-Narangan War in 1633 when she was involved in both a trading run to Naranga in addition to the assassination of the Wu General in the region.
  • Though the ship would remain in East Asia for most of its life, it would also visit Britain and the Mediterranean Sea during its time afloat under the ownership of Fortuna.
  • In 1661, while returning to Britain from Yolngu, the ship encountered rough seas around the southernmost tip of South America. Though it survived, the ship was badly beaten, as it limped to the British outpost on the Falklands Island. From there, Fortuna and her crew hitched a ride on a vessel back to Britain, where she received permission from the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company to purchase a replacement vessel: the Fortune’s Bounty II.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1661


HMS Sovereign of the Seas (1637)

  • Laid down in 1634 and launched in 1637, this ship is essentially an engineer’s wet dream. Built “just because,” the ship has more than double the guns of the next largest ships (the Victory-class) and was also over double the size, this ship towered over anything the British would build for the next half-decade or so.
  • That being said, the ship was also ladened with issues, such as poor handling and the likes.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704 to be used in HMS Sovereign


HMS Fortune’s Bounty II (1662)

  • A 28-gun xebec ordered by Fortuna King.
    • Also was equipped with two hwachas for testing purposes
  • Saw effective use under Fortuna’s captainship.
  • Notable for the Battle of the Vestkyst Fjords (1667) as well as for its involvement with rescuing Duchess Anastasia during the Vestkyst Civil War (1666).
  • Given to Lumi when Fortuna passed.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704


HMS Warspite (1668)

  • A 64-gun ship-of-the-line that served as Fortuna King’s flagship during the Anglo-Dutch War
  • Led the British fleet to victory against the Dutch fleet in the sole naval engagement in the “European front”
  • Fate: ???

British Western Territories | Albionite New World Colonies

  • Government: Due to reformations dating back to 1717 (Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, the Commonwealth Act), the British territories in the Western Hemisphere has gradually drifted into a sort of self-governance made up of 'colonies', some of which were once protectorates. In the face of the native threat, many colonies has turned to being organized into commonwealths, an organization of neighboring colonies for the purpose of promoting their own economic and military protection. Each commonwealth has their own informal 'council', they rarely meet unless for group decisions in the event of an emergency. Even while they are indirectly controlled or influenced by companies from their mother country, their influence waned over the colonies. As such, many once local companies, led by powerful families that originated from or based in the New World, has quickly grown enough to be able to have influence on par with the "motherland" companies.
  • Commonwealths & Colonies (w/ Population): 7,525M Total. With the establishment of the Commonwealths, there has been a more accurate census for the population of each colony, which turned out to be larger than previously recorded. One of the many reasons was due to the records only showing subjects from Britain themselves and not other places such as the Germanic states, France, or Hispania. Of the total ethnicities, only almost a fifth are descendants from British settlers. But all colonists would consider themselves subjects of Albion. The number of "unpaid labor" is around 555k, mostly in Elysia and Catonzia Commonwealths. Sometime around the early 1700s, birth and immigration rates skyrocketed, effectively doubling the population every few years or so (and climbing).
    • Vinland Commonwealth: 2,120k. The Vinland Commonwealth, once the kingdom of Vinland that ruled over the northern part of the continent, they have a long history of brutal conflict and division. It was not until the arrival of the British that things have rapidly calmed down. The Vinland colonies eventually fell under the influence of Albion and were naturally divided up by their own accord, but a significant amount of customs still survive (like Odinism). They experience greater autonomy over other colonies, as unlike others they peacefully and willingly joined. The colony has strong Norse influence, but in recent times became more "British" as a diverse range of settlers came rolling in. This is also in part due to the slower population growth due to emigration to other colonies, only other settlers would stunt the decline. However, half of the Vinland colonies fell under the influence of other families.
      • Agatha: The Realm of Frost and snowy Homesteads is founded and integrated as a fully fledged British colony by 1643. The Schaefer family recently established themselves here, from the German states. They easily established themselves as popular within the Agatha Militiamen.
      • Asturia: Once known as Asturgatan, the British colony was founded in 1643 and has strong Odinist roots. They have one of the longest histories compared to the other colonies, with the exception of Belamane.
      • Belamach (Belamane): The beating heart of the old Vinland realm and Odinism in Arcadia, it mainly centers itself on the edges of the (OTL) St. Lawrence river. It became integrated up as an official British colony by 1643.
      • Culland: While established as a colony like its neighbors in 1643, they actually owned a small part of its modern form when it was first created. It was not only until a couple decades later that the land that belonged to the tribes were gradually integrated into the colony. The Owens family, descendants of Erin Owens, became an influential family in this place. They led the expansion and development of the land over generations.
    • Midland Commonwealth: 1,050k. The Midland Commonwealth, also known as the northern Heartlands, is the heartland of recent European settlement in the colonies, with the colonies in the Commonwealth typically covered with more modern architecture dating to the Enlightenment Era. Although Deasaheim (or Desaham) and New York has non-British origins, their populations are quickly outnumbered by settlers coming from different parts of Europe. The Midlands are also the economic center of the colonies north of Elysia, and has quickly grown to rival their neighbors to the south in terms of trade, setting up future cultural and economic boundaries. They are experiencing the highest rapid growth over the other commonwealths around this time.
      • Deasaheim (Desaham): Early history of the former Norse colony dates back hundreds of years before the arrival of the British, it was not until the early 1510s that the region truly took shape, taking its name off of the city "Deasaheim." The British wouldn't start slowly absorbing and establish it as a colony until the late 1630s. By 1645, it has been fully established as a fully-fledged colony. Unlike most other colonies, the colony was populated by a secondary wave of immigrants who came from other colonies instead of those who migrated directly from Europe. In the late 1600s, the Hammet family, the most influential family in the colony, moved from Pendraconia to establish a settlement called Trentowne. It became a center hub for many settlers from Pendraconia to go to, and serves as a gateway for immigration into the colony. Natural resources in the colony included agricultural land, forests (timber), iron ore, coal, and furs. Major exports from the colony included livestock, rice, wheat, indigo, rice, grain and other agricultural products.
      • New York: Originally founded as a Dutch colony in the early 1600s, "New Netherlands" was birthed from blood and fire. They experienced rapid expansion after conquering all hostile tribes from all sides. It was not until 1674 that the colony fell under British rule. A separate branch of the King family that just recently settled in Arcadia established a new independent branch of the BAKA company was set up in the colony shortly after it was fully set up as a fully-fledged colony and the occupation ceased. It has no formal governing powers, but it did not grow into influence until after recent reformations. The King family has a shadowy influence in the colony's affairs.
      • Lansenia: The colony was originally founded as a safehaven colony in 1565 for Azure Pilgrims, with the early name of "Plymouth", led by John(?) Mordue. At first, the faction ran into many issues, mainly trying to survive the winter. They were helped by a local tribesman nearby and the colony has just begun to become stabilized. Since then, the colony experienced great growth and expansion. In the present time, they became a hub for fishing and other coastal industries in the northern colonies.
      • Pendraconia: The colony was set up by William Penn in 1681, a colony splintered off from Elysia to become a haven for diverse beliefs, ranging from oppressed Catholics to Quakers. The Baskerville is the most powerful family in this colony, but considering the family has branches that served the King family (also the same ones that influences New York), the King family also has considerable influence in Pendraconia as well (especially the north). The colony is known for their friendliness towards the native tribes, specifically the Lenape and Nitanee. Their vast groundwork potential for farms, lumber, coalmines, and iron production are also not to be underestimated.
    • Elysian Commonwealth: 2,560K Elysian Commonwealth, also known as the southern Heartlands are colonies that were once part of the greater Elysian realm. Architecture there has been dated to as far back as the 1200s and 1300s, and more recent buildings has taken on a more "Neo-Byzantine" style once Elysia and its neighbors to the south has been gradually absorbed into the British sphere. Since then, their rapid expansion outwards has found a greater need for "unpaid labor", and by the 1700s the colonies in the Commonwealth has taken on a more agrarian lifestyle beyond the cities of the coastlines, with a fifth of the population being African "unpaid laborers" in hand. Cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton are considered the staple to the economy of the southern colonies. Many native tribes that were absorbed into these colonies (willingly) has been considered to be 'civilized', though has faced some discrimination and hostilities due to their mixed history with the old Greek settlers. However, much of the colonies located in this Commonwealth set an example for the rest of the colonies to follow due to being one of the first British colonies.
      • Elysia: the Realm of Marble and Wine, the origin of all Greeks in the New World. The colony has shown its earliest settlement in the early 1200s after the 4th Crusade. Ever since, it has became a hub of diverse beliefs, a mix of both Orthodox Christianity and cult Hellenism (paganism), while there were tensions between the two groups, they somehow get along (at least within the current borders of the Elysian colony). The colony has fields of tobacco and wine, and early permanent British settlement began in the 1561, with the establishment of Jamestown after a devastating Elysian War that started in 1553. Since then, the large state/colony of Elysia has been slowly chipped away to other newer states or colonies under the BFG company. Since the reformations, the Faber family became the most influential house in this place, supplanting the older Greek houses, with an industry and desire to travel west.
      • Laconia: Laconia was once a heavily divided history, with the Grand Duchy of Crotania long before that. On more recent maps, they are shown as a united place, and referred to as such. The colony has remnants of the Powhatans, though many more people are those who could trace their origins to Elysian settlers from the north. The Lloyd family, a powerful family with a military background, has taken up shop here after the Atouman Wars in Europe and quickly gained respect among the local population. The Trengouses also has some influence in a couple cities in this colony.
      • North Eldia: The old united Eldia colony had a long history of conflict in its pre-British years. Only had finally been united by its establishment as a colony under the control of the MOM company by the 1600s. The colony was split in 1705 and by the reformation, the MOM company was gradually supplanted by the local Kilmer and Trengouse families. There has also been a long time rivalry between the two families, as the Trengouse are coastal urban elites, trading fish and other seafoods. Meanwhile, the Kilmer family are more powerful in the countryside where the agrarian society resides, growing the standard cash crops.
      • South Eldia: The Realm of Summer and Indigo, the colony was established in 1705 after the Eldia colony was split by the British. The biggest production of this colony is its cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton. But the economy of indigo is almost exclusively in South Eldia. The Solheim family plantations are the leading producers of indigo and rice, dominating the flow of trade that comes in and out of South Eldia. Though, they merely have gotten a head start due to their rich and noble origins from Vestkyst. The colony seeks new frontiers with its colonial government having generally positive relations with the neighboring native states.
    • Catonzian Commonwealth: 1,130k. If one were to travel to the Catonzian Commonwealth, you would be amazed at the number of Hispanian, French, or "Native New-Worlders" inhabiting these parts. Though many of them remain separate, with many Natives being considered "second-class", but are still above "unpaid labor", with the exception of Cofitachequi. It is considered one of the more culturally distinct parts of the colonies as they are the most recent non-British entities to be influenced. Many older buildings in these colonies typically takes on a more Hispanian look. Like the neighboring Elysian Commonwealth to the north, the colonies of the deep south has been touched by a growing reliance on "unpaid labor". Their cash crops are mainly rice and cotton.
      • Cofitache: Cofitache, a land belonging to the people once known as the Cofitachequi, is dominated by Muskogean native culture. They are newest colony of the bunch and are still in development since its integration, but boasts plenty of settled places as well. Unlike most colonies, it already came with its own developed apparatus largely intact from its peaceful integration. Since then, many settlers poured across the border, but were mostly restricted to certain places to help keep the old native kingdom's integrity. The most influential family of the colony is the family of its native leader. Settler/colonist-wise, the Stonehart family has recently moved in and helped began economic development. The Stonehart family mainly came from the coastal cities along northern East Catonzia.
      • East Catonzia: (Rewritten) The history of Catonzia had been once a powerful state in the gulf before it became subjected to a colony. It was later ruled by the Hispanians through a combination of deals and conquests. In 1705, the colony was established as a split from the main state, as the British administration considered the territory too large to administer. The territory is the center of the rice trade of the colonies, as the experiment originated there. The Suazo family took up shop there, becoming a little more influential due to spearheading the spread of rice.
      • West Catonzia: In 1705, West Catonzia has an identity separate from East Catonzia. Most of West Catonzia was not originally part of Osnerol, the original exonym to the region given by the conquering Hispanians. Therefore, most of West Catonzia is filled by Hispanian, French, and British colonists. The Emanuel family is the most popular one in the region, serving as its governors as recently as the start of the 18th century.
    • Atlantean Commonwealth?: 85k.
      • Bahamas: Once known a New Valcanor, the island was acquired from the war with Hispania, the same one where the British sunk the Hispanian Armada.
      • Belize (Honduras): Acquired after the League Wars from Iberia/Hispania. They are known for their timber.
      • Mosquito Coast: Acquired after the League Wars from Iberia/Hispania. They are known for their timber, like their northern counterpart.
      • Virgin Islands (Shattered Isles): Nothing happens in the Virgin Islands.
    • Other: 25k. Those who are not under a Commonwealth
      • British Amazon: The lands here are remnants of a long struggle to keep it, after an uprising of native tribes of the Amazons has pushed the British to the shores. Many veterans were produced from this war that lasted for decades and many generations. Only bases on their islands are left standing.
      • British Falklands: Discovered a long time ago, though to the British its by Captain Drake, they are the most inhabited colony outside of the commonwealths.
      • British Galapagos? N/A
      • British Hudson Bay: Settlers from the great White North, roughly around OTL Hudson Bay. 10k+
      • British Novus Arcadia: A settlemen from OTL Seattle.
  • Military Most of the colonial military of the colonies are currently directly controlled by the British. But since the Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, troops are being slowly pulled out in favor of local militias. The Commonwealths are formed to help provide each other economic and military support in times of crisis as a result of this pull out.

  • Diplomacy:
  • Events;
    • Check "Self-Enlightenment and Governance" and the "Commonwealth" Acts under "Government"
    • Check Diplomacy.
      • Ani'ku'sa: To help provide a check to the power of the Yenreshkanaan up north, we wish to back any sort of Pro-British group in the land. Any group that takes power there should be crowned 'Emperor' or 'King' of the Cherokee (as the Ani'ku'sa are Cherokees) in exchange for unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • Creation of the Allied Reserve Territories plan (ongoing) The ever increasing threat of the Yenreshkanaan Empire along the western frontiers of the Midland and Elysian Commonwealth has increasingly became more concerning. But there is hope, following the question of westward diplomacy by the Catonzia and Elysia Commonwealths, they sent a certain expedition led by a character named Elijah Suazo and Alexander Kennaugh to negotiate an arrangement with any Pro-British Ani'ku'sa groups to take power in exchange for providing support for the unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • A really "French and Indian" incident: In recent decades, the increasing population of the British colonies became more strained. Some settlers has already crossed into Yenreshkanaan, trying to keep hidden past the French forts and Natives. The Erie-Ohio Company was formed in response. The Company basically promises any investors land in exchange for money to negotiate a buy for it. In 1754, the Governor of Elysia (and investor himself) was interested in purchasing a claim of (OTL) Ohio from Yenreshkanaan to relieve the itching settlers and also to intentionally strategcally uproot any French forts or claims in the area. He ordered 21-year-old Major George Washington of the Virginia Regiment to warn any French off the territory in the early 1750s. Washington left with a small party, picking up Miguel (his mentor since 1751) as an interpreter, some native Cherokee allies, and a few others. By early 1754, they reached the frontier and managed to negotiate, after weeks of back and forth communication and planning, they managed to agree on a meeting spot. When they met up, it was null. Any possible negotiations suddenly fell apart due to a scout spotting French presence in the area by happenstance. Washington ordered his men to hide and on standby, ready to potentially ambush the small passing patrol if needed be. They almost left... until someone fired a shot
    • TL;DR:
      • British Hudson Bay will attempt to expand along the northern coastlines, a thing that has been lagging for decades.

Mod Events

  • The Uharibifu - [3]: The crisis spread further. Maasai incursion across Lake Tanganyika further exacerbated the escalating food crisis spiralling across the region and starvation abounded on a mass scale. Every year more and more seemed to die while moving, or while trying to reach the few city-states of Central Africa, whom had opened their doors to refugees, or while establishing themselves in foreign lands unfamiliar to them and inhabited by dozens of others. Hundreds of thousands died.

    Central Africa became home to new political entities formed in response to colonial aggression, the first true example of which: the Teke Nation, with its exiles and ultimate goal to retake their homeland, under Kongolese occupation after the Kongo moved to compete. But it became home to festering resentment, too - particularly among the Tabwa Clans, whom resisted against intrusion fiercely; and those who could not escape ended up becoming part of the growing underclass of the Lunda-Luba Union, formed to resist further Maasai expansion into the region. Other states too benefited from the exploitation of fleeing peoples.

    The world was changing. And it was killing millions for it.

  • The Moving Cart: It was a strange invention when the Duke of Manchester heard about it, but it made about as much sense as it could to the people in the mines. It was quite simple: they'd bought some steam engines, used some of the profit to buy steel, laid down some tramways, and used it to move coal up and out of the mines. 'The train', they called it, 'since the bloody thing was supposed to be pulling it up, up and away!'

    But the idea caught on. It caught on especially quickly because the will of technological development was accelerating massively; the Duke paid a young inventor by the name of Paul Heathrow to attempt something. A test engine - based on the previous Cathayan-Japanese design that had been brought to Albion - was enormously and prohibitively expensive for its limited use, but it showed the potential of a proper engine well. So they were paid to produce a proper line - between the first ever ironworks in Albion, the Blaenavon Ironworks, and other Welsh iron mines.

    And it worked. Splendidly well, although the mines were on the verge of depletion anyways; and it would soon propel the new invention to prominence. Because today, the train had been born.

  • Dreamtime Nightmares (Part 2): As Yolngu and its allies continue to expand, even the most isolated tribes has heard of this threat to the north. This forces those who remain in the middle to choose between freedom (Aborigine Confederacy) or to join the "inevitable" and gamble for better treatment (most would wish to be left alone). This is all an oversimplification of the situation that has developed, however, as the tribes who are caught in the middle have numerous other motives. But the most common thing they share is that they wish to continue to survive, the only complicated part is which side they are increasingly pressured to choose. Although quite a few would wish to join Yolngu's council (or as one of its other allies), the Aborigine Confederacy (as historians would later call it) would exploit the fears and rumors of the 'outside' to gradually expand its reach to encompass all who are not already part of Yolngu's alliance by 1758. Tensions would boil between the two sides, and upon hearing second or third-hand rumors from captured sailors (or traders) from other places that the developing Australia's mother country would be distracted somewhere else, they would make their first move soon after. The King's War starts now.
  • Extraction of the Nucleic Acid: Performed in the Swiss city of Basel in 1756, physician Friedrich Raschl isolated a precipitate from neutrophils, one of the main components in pus. Raschl founded that the precipitate, which he dubbed nuclein, contained phosphorus and nitrogen but not sulfur. The discovery was so unique compared to other discoveries of the time that a German colleague of his repeated all of Raschl's research himself to confirm the results before publishing it in a journal. Raschl and his students researched much nucleic acid chemistry, but its function remained unknown. However, his discovery played an important part in the identification of nucleic acids as the carriers of inheritance.
  • Ruins in the North: It had been long accepted that the vast wastes of Siberia had little to offer in terms of archaelogy. Unlike Europe, where you could swing a cat and hit a Roman road - the vast wastes of the east offered little ruins for exploration. I mean, is there anyone that even lives in Siberia? Well, there are nearly four million Adytites and a smattering of Keisarian settlers and native groups, but we can ignore that.

    Kyzydä Gralin was never incredibly fond of this idea. Horribly vain and presumptious thinking that Siberia had absolutely nothing of worth, he thought. Having lived amongst Chukchi hunters and Naranga traders for much of his live, he was also keenly aware of the tales of an ancient semi-divine race of "ridge-makers" who were wiped out swiftly and suddenly for reasons unknown. However, freely traveling in the Tundra presented a plethora of problems, even for a trained guide like him.

    Well, you can imagine how estatic he was when a friend mentioned finding miles of stones half-submurged in the permafrost.

    Kyzydä Gralin immediately rushed with his friend to check, and surely enough, there were vast ruins by the Sea of Okhotsk. And not just stones. Small slopes, curiously always facing south or west. Mounds of rammed earth aligned around these slopes - in a way which reminded Kyzydä awfully of windbreaks. The nature of the enviroment rendered any excavation virtually impossible, but damn, this was exciting stuff! Both Kyzydä and his friend discussed extensively about the purpose of these formations and the identity of their makers, but neither reached any conclusion.

    Coincidentally, The next year, in 1758, rumors of strange megaliths along the mountainous coast of Amuria spotted by Ainu whalers reached Kyzydä's ears. Kyzydä, being friends with numerous Cathayan antiquarians, immediately hired an Ainu fisherman as guide and rushed south. Even if he saw nothing, which was quite likely, he and his friends had business to do in Haisenwe, so it was fine. Though he expected nothing, as Amuria was already fairly well-explored, he, indeed, found something. Megalithic structures were found along the coast. Kyzydä initially attributed them to the Koreans of Gojoseon - whom he knew constructed great dolmens as graves, but further analysis made this seem rather sketchky. Having spent enough time wandering already, he quickly moved south to Haisenwe, but not before making a few sketches and taking some notes. Something was up. And he was close to finding it.

  • Rebellions of the 1750s: Contrary to the ideas of Western thinkers, enlightenment was not popular in the world beyond the Cape; statists disliked their focus on undermining traditional state power, the capitalists disliked that they proposed that their elitism was not in fact inherent, and the common man had no idea they existed whatsoever.

    What they did have an idea of, however, was their own home-grown movements.

    The Pacific Universities had almost always congregated in Asia, and for good reason: it was the most ideologically diverse region of the world. In Nippon, state and civil affairs interlinked closely into state mercantilism; across the Tsushima Strait, the state had no business existing at all. The Democracy of Koryo had always been an aberration in the grand history of the great Asian powers, because it was three things: premised on the non-existence of an elite, the continued existence of democratic self-governance on a community level, and most importantly, it was not a state. Cathayan thinkers believed it was a chaotic, lawless region. Nipponese thinkers made no haste in claiming it was proof of the ‘barbarism’ of the Korean peoples. But something both had to admit: it was still there.

    And it was a veritable nexus of dissident sentiment in East Asia. When Tagalog revolutionary Ulan of Luzon was forced to flee Manila after inciting a minor rebellion, he found shelter in Busan; when the leaders of a revolt in South Cathay needed to leave, they found their way to Hanseong. The Cathayans reluctantly accepted this state of affairs, given their disinterest in Koryo; the Japanese, committed to isolation, could not muster enough political will towards an invasion. And the Japanese were about to discover that that decision might not have been the best idea.

    The Second Luzonese Rebellion broke out in the summer of 1757, sparked by Rusontan authorities’ plans to build yet another major road and this time through land special to the Samtoy Confederation. This time, however, coming on the heels of an economic depression in the four main islands and unprompted attempts at breaking up communities in the inland, it spiralled from a minor rebellion into full-on revolution when Rusontan levies defected or refused to fight for the colonial government. And seeing its seeming success, similar rebellions spread - Utsul, 1758, Nagasato, 1759, and on and on.

    Revolution was on the march.


British Western Territories | Albionite New World Colonies

Government: Due to reformations dating back to 1717 (Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, the Commonwealth Act), the British territories in the Western Hemisphere has gradually drifted into a sort of self-governance made up of 'colonies', some of which were once protectorates. In the face of the native threat, many colonies has turned to being organized into commonwealths, an organization of neighboring colonies for the purpose of promoting their own economic and military protection. Each commonwealth has their own informal 'council', they rarely meet unless for group decisions in the event of an emergency. Even while they are indirectly controlled or influenced by companies from their mother country, their influence waned over the colonies. As such, many once local companies, led by powerful families that originated from or based in the New World, has quickly grown enough to be able to have influence on par with the "motherland" companies.

  • Commonwealths & Colonies (w/ Population): 7,530M Total. With the establishment of the Commonwealths, there has been a more accurate census for the population of each colony, which turned out to be larger than previously recorded. One of the many reasons was due to the records only showing subjects from Britain themselves and not other places such as the Germanic states, France, or Hispania. Of the total ethnicities, only almost a fifth are descendants from British settlers. But all colonists would consider themselves subjects of Albion. The number of "unpaid labor" is around 560k, mostly in Elysia and Catonzia Commonwealths.
    • Vinland Commonwealth: 2,120k. The Vinland Commonwealth, once the kingdom of Vinland that ruled over the northern part of the continent, they have a long history of brutal conflict and division. It was not until the arrival of the British that things have rapidly calmed down. The Vinland colonies eventually fell under the influence of Albion and were naturally divided up by their own accord, but a significant amount of customs still survive (like Odinism). They experience greater autonomy over other colonies, as unlike others they peacefully and willingly joined. The colony has strong Norse influence, but in recent times became more "British" as a diverse range of settlers came rolling in. This is also in part due to the slower population growth due to emigration to other colonies, only other settlers would stunt the decline. However, half of the Vinland colonies fell under the influence of other families.
      • Agatha: The Realm of Frost and snowy Homesteads is founded and integrated as a fully fledged British colony by 1643. The Schaefer family recently established themselves here, from the German states. They easily established themselves as popular within the Agatha Militiamen.
      • Asturia: Once known as Asturgatan, the British colony was founded in 1643 and has strong Odinist roots. They have one of the longest histories compared to the other colonies, with the exception of Belamane.
      • Belamach (Belamane): The beating heart of the old Vinland realm and Odinism in Arcadia, it mainly centers itself on the edges of the (OTL) St. Lawrence river. It became integrated up as an official British colony by 1643.
      • Culland: While established as a colony like its neighbors in 1643, they actually owned a small part of its modern form when it was first created. It was not only until a couple decades later that the land that belonged to the tribes were gradually integrated into the colony. The Owens family, descendants of Erin Owens, became an influential family in this place. They led the expansion and development of the land over generations.
    • Midland Commonwealth: 1,050k. The Midland Commonwealth, also known as the northern Heartlands, is the heartland of recent European settlement in the colonies, with the colonies in the Commonwealth typically covered with more modern architecture dating to the Enlightenment Era. Although Deasaheim (or Desaham) and New York has non-British origins, their populations are quickly outnumbered by settlers coming from different parts of Europe. The Midlands are also the economic center of the colonies north of Elysia, and has quickly grown to rival their neighbors to the south in terms of trade, setting up future cultural and economic boundaries. They are experiencing the highest rapid growth over the other commonwealths around this time.
      • Deasaheim (Desaham): Early history of the former Norse colony dates back hundreds of years before the arrival of the British, it was not until the early 1510s that the region truly took shape, taking its name off of the city "Deasaheim." The British wouldn't start slowly absorbing and establish it as a colony until the late 1630s. By 1645, it has been fully established as a fully-fledged colony. Unlike most other colonies, the colony was populated by a secondary wave of immigrants who came from other colonies instead of those who migrated directly from Europe. In the late 1600s, the Hammet family, the most influential family in the colony, moved from Pendraconia to establish a settlement called Trentowne. It became a center hub for many settlers from Pendraconia to go to, and serves as a gateway for immigration into the colony. Natural resources in the colony included agricultural land, forests (timber), iron ore, coal, and furs. Major exports from the colony included livestock, rice, wheat, indigo, rice, grain and other agricultural products.
      • New York: Originally founded as a Dutch colony in the early 1600s, "New Netherlands" was birthed from blood and fire. They experienced rapid expansion after conquering all hostile tribes from all sides. It was not until 1674 that the colony fell under British rule. A separate branch of the King family that just recently settled in Arcadia established a new independent branch of the BAKA company was set up in the colony shortly after it was fully set up as a fully-fledged colony and the occupation ceased. It has no formal governing powers, but it did not grow into influence until after recent reformations. The King family has a shadowy influence in the colony's affairs.
      • Lansenia: The colony was originally founded as a safehaven colony in 1565 for Azure Pilgrims, with the early name of "Plymouth", led by John(?) Mordue. At first, the faction ran into many issues, mainly trying to survive the winter. They were helped by a local tribesman nearby and the colony has just begun to become stabilized. Since then, the colony experienced great growth and expansion. In the present time, they became a hub for fishing and other coastal industries in the northern colonies.
      • Pendraconia: The colony was set up by William Penn in 1681, a colony splintered off from Elysia to become a haven for diverse beliefs, ranging from oppressed Catholics to Quakers. The Baskerville is the most powerful family in this colony, but considering the family has branches that served the King family (also the same ones that influences New York), the King family also has considerable influence in Pendraconia as well (especially the north). The colony is known for their friendliness towards the native tribes, specifically the Lenape and Nitanee. Their vast groundwork potential for farms, lumber, coalmines, and iron production are also not to be underestimated.
    • Elysian Commonwealth: 2,560K Elysian Commonwealth, also known as the southern Heartlands are colonies that were once part of the greater Elysian realm. Architecture there has been dated to as far back as the 1200s and 1300s, and more recent buildings has taken on a more "Neo-Byzantine" style once Elysia and its neighbors to the south has been gradually absorbed into the British sphere. Since then, their rapid expansion outwards has found a greater need for "unpaid labor", and by the 1700s the colonies in the Commonwealth has taken on a more agrarian lifestyle beyond the cities of the coastlines, with a fifth of the population being African "unpaid laborers" in hand. Cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton are considered the staple to the economy of the southern colonies. Many native tribes that were absorbed into these colonies (willingly) has been considered to be 'civilized', though has faced some discrimination and hostilities due to their mixed history with the old Greek settlers. However, much of the colonies located in this Commonwealth set an example for the rest of the colonies to follow due to being one of the first British colonies.
      • Elysia: the Realm of Marble and Wine, the origin of all Greeks in the New World. The colony has shown its earliest settlement in the early 1200s after the 4th Crusade. Ever since, it has became a hub of diverse beliefs, a mix of both Orthodox Christianity and cult Hellenism (paganism), while there were tensions between the two groups, they somehow get along (at least within the current borders of the Elysian colony). The colony has fields of tobacco and wine, and early permanent British settlement began in the 1561, with the establishment of Jamestown after a devastating Elysian War that started in 1553. Since then, the large state/colony of Elysia has been slowly chipped away to other newer states or colonies under the BFG company. Since the reformations, the Faber family became the most influential house in this place, supplanting the older Greek houses, with an industry and desire to travel west.
      • Laconia: Laconia was once a heavily divided history, with the Grand Duchy of Crotania long before that. On more recent maps, they are shown as a united place, and referred to as such. The colony has remnants of the Powhatans, though many more people are those who could trace their origins to Elysian settlers from the north. The Lloyd family, a powerful family with a military background, has taken up shop here after the Atouman Wars in Europe and quickly gained respect among the local population. The Trengouses also has some influence in a couple cities in this colony.
      • North Eldia: The old united Eldia colony had a long history of conflict in its pre-British years. Only had finally been united by its establishment as a colony under the control of the MOM company by the 1600s. The colony was split in 1705 and by the reformation, the MOM company was gradually supplanted by the local Kilmer and Trengouse families. There has also been a long time rivalry between the two families, as the Trengouse are coastal urban elites, trading fish and other seafoods. Meanwhile, the Kilmer family are more powerful in the countryside where the agrarian society resides, growing the standard cash crops.
      • South Eldia: The Realm of Summer and Indigo, the colony was established in 1705 after the Eldia colony was split by the British. The biggest production of this colony is its cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton. But the economy of indigo is almost exclusively in South Eldia. The Solheim family plantations are the leading producers of indigo and rice, dominating the flow of trade that comes in and out of South Eldia. Though, they merely have gotten a head start due to their rich and noble origins from Vestkyst. The colony seeks new frontiers with its colonial government having generally positive relations with the neighboring native states.
    • Catonzian Commonwealth: 1,130k. If one were to travel to the Catonzian Commonwealth, you would be amazed at the number of Hispanian, French, or "Native New-Worlders" inhabiting these parts. Though many of them remain separate, with many Natives being considered "second-class", but are still above "unpaid labor", with the exception of Cofitachequi. It is considered one of the more culturally distinct parts of the colonies as they are the most recent non-British entities to be influenced. Many older buildings in these colonies typically takes on a more Hispanian look. Like the neighboring Elysian Commonwealth to the north, the colonies of the deep south has been touched by a growing reliance on "unpaid labor". Their cash crops are mainly rice and cotton.
      • Cofitache: Cofitache, a land belonging to the people once known as the Cofitachequi, is dominated by Muskogean native culture. They are newest colony of the bunch and are still in development since its integration, but boasts plenty of settled places as well. Unlike most colonies, it already came with its own developed apparatus largely intact from its peaceful integration. Since then, many settlers poured across the border, but were mostly restricted to certain places to help keep the old native kingdom's integrity. The most influential family of the colony is the family of its native leader. Settler/colonist-wise, the Stonehart family has recently moved in and helped began economic development. The Stonehart family mainly came from the coastal cities along northern East Catonzia.
      • East Catonzia: (Rewritten) The history of Catonzia had been once a powerful state in the gulf before it became subjected to a colony. It was later ruled by the Hispanians through a combination of deals and conquests. In 1705, the colony was established as a split from the main state, as the British administration considered the territory too large to administer. The territory is the center of the rice trade of the colonies, as the experiment originated there. The Suazo family took up shop there, becoming a little more influential due to spearheading the spread of rice.
      • West Catonzia: In 1705, West Catonzia has an identity separate from East Catonzia. Most of West Catonzia was not originally part of Osnerol, the original exonym to the region given by the conquering Hispanians. Therefore, most of West Catonzia is filled by Hispanian, French, and British colonists. The Emanuel family is the most popular one in the region, serving as its governors as recently as the start of the 18th century.
    • Atlantean Commonwealth?: 85k.
      • Bahamas: Once known a New Valcanor, the island was acquired from the war with Hispania, the same one where the British sunk the Hispanian Armada.
      • Belize (Honduras): Acquired after the League Wars from Iberia/Hispania. They are known for their timber.
      • Mosquito Coast: Acquired after the League Wars from Iberia/Hispania. They are known for their timber, like their northern counterpart.
      • Virgin Islands (Shattered Isles): Nothing happens in the Virgin Islands.
    • Other: 25k. Those who are not under a Commonwealth
      • British Amazon: The lands here are remnants of a long struggle to keep it, after an uprising of native tribes of the Amazons has pushed the British to the shores. Many veterans were produced from this war that lasted for decades and many generations. Only bases on their islands are left standing.
      • British Falklands: Discovered a long time ago, though to the British its by Captain Drake, they are the most inhabited colony outside of the commonwealths.
      • British Galapagos? N/A
      • British Hudson Bay: Settlers from the great White North, roughly around OTL Hudson Bay. 10k+
      • British Novus Arcadia: A settlemen from OTL Seattle.
  • Military Most of the colonial military of the colonies are currently directly controlled by the British. But since the Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, troops are being slowly pulled out in favor of local militias. The Commonwealths are formed to help provide each other economic and military support in times of crisis as a result of this pull out.

    • Total Army: 92,500 Troops (including Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillerymen)
    • Total Navy: Between 80 to 130 ships, mostly light or armed merchant trade ships (WIP)
  • Diplomacy:
  • Events;
    • Check "Self-Enlightenment and Governance" and the "Commonwealth" Acts under "Government"
    • Check Diplomacy.
      • Ani'ku'sa: To help provide a check to the power of the Yenreshkanaan up north, we wish to back any sort of Pro-British group in the land. Any group that takes power there should be crowned 'Emperor' or 'King' of the Cherokee (as the Ani'ku'sa are Cherokees) in exchange for unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • Creation of the Allied Reserve Territories plan (ongoing) The ever increasing threat of the Yenreshkanaan Empire along the western frontiers of the Midland and Elysian Commonwealth has increasingly became more concerning. But there is hope, following the question of westward diplomacy by the Catonzia and Elysia Commonwealths, they sent a certain expedition led by a character named Elijah Suazo and Alexander Kennaugh to negotiate an arrangement with any Pro-British Ani'ku'sa groups to take power in exchange for providing support for the unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • French invasion of Yenreshkanaan (1756): Upon receiving news of the French mobilizing, Colonel George Washington receives orders to move into Yenreshkanaan to try and make the most of the turmoil in the area. He is accompanied by General Wilhelm Schaefer of the British Marine Corps, sent in from training in Australia since the incident along the frontier 2 years ago. He is the best candidate, considering he has a family within the colonies. However, due to British bungling and the sudden order to mobilize, the Colonel was only able to capture a single French fort in the Appalachian before encountering fierce French resistance.
    • Stalemate in the Occitan Front (1757): As the conflict spreads, it is clear that any advance into Avoyelle will be an uphill battle. With the number of forts in the area (that all must be sieged for any invasion to continue), the British and Avoyelle are locked in a stalemate of sorts. The thought of a potential flanking attack is proposed, but due to the risk of accidentally involving more nations into the conflict, the idea is tossed out for the time being.
    • Rise of the Arcadian Sentinels (and Minutemen): The new war that erupted in the colonies has developed concern against the various native groups along the frontier that would be potentially hostile to the settlers, the colonists themselves also feared French raids along the settlements. The Sentinels, a military order dedicated to protecting and guarding the frontiers, has seen skyrocketing memberships. George Washington can be seen amongst the members, though he joined a few years earlier in 1751. Colonists who did not join the Sentinels would instead form their own local militias to help serve community interests and protection, this results in the rise in the early known minutemen - ready at a minute's notice.
    • TL;DR:
      • British Hudson Bay will attempt to expand along the northern coastlines, a thing that has been lagging for decades.
      • Establishment of Novus Arcadia (OTL Seattle, working with Albion)
      • Skirmish in Avoyelle, occasional naval battles.
      • Forces under Colonel George Washington and General Wilhelm Schaefer moved into the frontier to capture French forts.

Most of the members of the parliament that are peasants belong to this party which is primarily agrarian and is also considered protectionist. Also it advocates for christians interests and it is considered a francophile party as it wants to counter what they call “the Atouman threat”. They are neutral to the current political situation.

  • Diplomacy:
  • Events:
  • The Grand Debates: Ever since we had established a proper lower chamber there have been a lot of debating going on. These could prove chaotic at times and that’s why two consuls were to act as speakers of the lower chambers. One consul would be elected by a simple majority and the other would be elected by a majority of the estates. Debating the monarch's bills would still be chaotic despite having consuls or speakers. Roberto usually didn’t even attend when they debated as he found it very tiresome. During the debate it got just clearer that the peasants and bourgeoisie didn’t bond well together. They would always heat up against one and another especially on subjects such as religion. Bourgeois being anti-clerical meanwhile the peasants wanted to support religious people’s interests.
  • Four Estates: In 1756 the Rex decided to split up the third estates as they pretty much already had split up themselves. There were now four estates with peasants and bourgeoisie split in two. There was though one problem when they got split up the Rex decided to give one more seat to the bourgeois which the peasant faction saw as unfair treatment.
  • Anti-Absolutism majority in the Senate?: in the winter of 1756 it was quite obvious that the peasants had already aligned themselves with the more anti-absolutism forces in the senate. This meant that there was now a hostile majority against the absolutism of the Rex. Therefore it is a lot harder for the Rex to get his laws passed through the senate. The 81 year old Mazzini would write and send a letter to the Rex stating that he should dissolve the Senate. Then change the amount of seats each faction gets or do whatever it takes to stop it going full status quo.
  • Senate Dissolved: On the 3rd of january the Rex dismissed the Capitano del Popolo though Capitano del Popolo would die a few months later. He would put up an interim council in its place governed by 4 people each from each estate. The 10th of January the Rex dissolved the senate.
  • Peasant Rebellion of 1757: In Response to the dissolvement of the Senate some peasants would rebel believing that the dissolvement was meant to suppress peasants interests. The Archbishop is said to have supported the rebellion a few days after it started. The nobles would provide support to it as well with the little power they had left suddenly the Rex had a whole coalition against him though could be easily manageable. Mazzini would write “Can’t you just send the army?” in a letter. In Response the Rex appointed Mazzini as Capitano del Popolo. Mazzini, old and confused, would start negotiating with the peasants. Mazzini had himself really become a bizarre fella on older days. While talking to the Archbishop he had fallen asleep. An Agreement was made that the Senate would open with the one contested seat being a part of the peasant estate instead of the bourgeois. The Senate would re-open on the 1st of Mars. Mazzini would be replaced by an interim council where he himself represented the bourgeois faction. It is said that he would say bizarre things. The Archbishop would later write about this that “It is quite bizarre that our own leader would listen to Mazzini. ”
  • Back to Status Quo: After the 3rd January 1758 everything would pretty much go back to before this little bizarre thing happened. Mazzini has pretty much hid himself away from the spotlight which has been taken over by his loyal students instead. The Rex position is also temporarily weakened as he actually lost. The Rex have tried to repair relations with the peasants by trying to legislate laws in favour of the peasants like higher penalties regarding people destroying crops for example.

    • While most are able to fight, members of the Roundtable are encouraged to branch out into their own craft, such as pottery and sheepherding, with the idea that everyone should act like a Roundtable Knight and give their all into both their craft and their country.
    • The only way to become a Roundtable Knight is to be selected by an existing member of the group. Most knights tend to make apprentices out of those they recruit to the Roundtable, and generally, no one usually complains when a Roundtable Knight selects someone to join the ranks of the Roundtables. Depending on the country/chapter, one can also be appointed to the Roundtable by the crown.
    • In 1527, three factions were formed within the Roundtables
      • The Crimson Sun

Notable Companies and Organizations


McCarthy Arms Company (MAC):


McCarthy Arms Company (MAC) is the main firearms and cannon manufacturer for the British Military. Though other smaller companies exist, none have the prestige nor manufacturing capabilities MAC has.


Produced models:

FL1610 “Wasp MkI” Flintlock Musket (1610)

  • The first musket in the series of muskets made in response to “Manufacture d'armes de Châtellerault” and their flintlock musket.
  • Hastily made, the musket has various issues, and has a higher-than-usual casualty rate among those who use it due to the tendency for the musket’s barrel to implode.
  • Due to this reputation, the musket was given an additional nickname: “Barrel of Surprises”

FL1610E1 “Wasp MkII” Flintlock Musket (1611)

  • A modified L1610 that doesn't implode (more than most muskets of the era).

FL1610E2 “Wasp MkIII” Flintlock musket (1612)

  •  The version of the musket that was used by the British Military when they joined the League Wars the same year.
  • This musket features a slightly redesigned barrel, slightly increasing the range and improving the reliability of the musket even more.

FL1610E3 “Wasp MkIV” Flintlock Musket (1614)

  • Essentially the Wasp MkIII, but its components are simplified a bit, allowing for easier production.

FL1616 “Honey MkI” Flintlock Musket (1616)

  • A modified version of the Wasp MkIV for use in hunting.
    • Essentially a simplified version of the Wasp MkIV for commercial purchase
  • Also becomes the model of musket that was exported to allies during the League Wars

FL1610E4 “Wasp MkV” Flintlock Musket (1619)

  • A version of the Wasp MkIV that is made from Yolngu steel, giving the musket more durability

FL1616E1 “Honey MkII” Flintlock Musket (1621)

  • An improved version of the Honey MkI, taking feedback from its users when making said improvements.

FL1625 “Hornet MkI” Flintlock Musket (1625)

  • The successor to the Wasp series of muskets, featuring a slightly simplified design for the firing mechanism, allowing for easier construction of the musket, though early versions of the musket has issues due to kinks that weren’t figured out (though not as bad as was seen on the first Wasp muskets)

FL1625E1 “Hornet MkII” Flintlock Musket (1626)

  • Sent into the field in late 1626, the musket fixes the issues seen in the Hornet MkI.

FL1616E2 “Honey MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1627)

  • An improvement over the Honey MkII that features some improvements that were seen on the Hornet-series of muskets.

FL1625E2 “Hornet MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1632)

  • An improved version of the Hornet MkII, and is the primary musket used by the BMAC Company in its early years.

FL1636 “Hornet 2 MkI” Flintlock Musket (1636)

  • Originally just a simple upgrade, the Hornet 2 musket had so many improvements made to it that the company reclassified it as its own series of muskets.
  • Included in the many changes made is the narrower barrel. Though the bullets are smaller, due to a smaller round being used, the bullets are faster, have longer ranges, slightly faster reload, and are marginally more accurate than the original version of the Hornet.
  • Though the musket doesn’t have as good of a stopping power, its improvements arguably offset this weakness.

FL1636E1 “Hornet 2 MkII” Flintlock Musket (1642)

  • Modifications related to its reliability in hot, humid regions are added to the musket.
  • In addition, this is the first musket (used by the British) that was able to mount a bayonet.

XRS1652 “Thunderer” Experimental Revolving Sidearm (1652)

  • An experimental 3-shot revolver produced in extremely few quantities (around 56 or so)
  • The idea is for rounds to be pre-loaded into the revolving barrel of the pistol, which is locked in place by three pins when firing. Once a bullet is expended, the user delaches the pins and manually rotates the barrel before locking it back in place. This process is tedious and doesn’t give the gun that much of an advantage over normal conventional pistols on account of the cumbersome barrel, in addition to the pistol’s unreliability (even by standards of the time)

FL1656 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1656)

  • The third version of the Hornet musket, which took the FL1636E1 model of musket and made the musket easier to produce. Still features the capability for using a bayonet that is secured under the barrel of the musket from the FL1636E1.

FL1656-EXP “Honey 2” Flintlock Musket (1657)

  • Essentially an FL1636E1 musket that is cailbered in the conventional ammo size used by most nations. Also features the capability for usage of a plug bayonet.
  • Since both this musket and the “Hornet 3” musket have the same catalog name, the “Honey 2” was given the -EXP notation at the end to distinguish it as the export musket.

FS1659 “Thunderer 2” Flintlock Sidearm (1659)

  • A non-revolver version of the XRS1652 musket. This sidearm is provided both to officers and cavalry units in the military and only in small numbers.

FL1656E1 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1666)

  • Slight improvement to the Hornet 3 that was used in the Anglo-Dutch War. The gun features a slight improvement to its accuracy as well as a better mechanism for the bayonet, which is now custom-built for the musket itself and can double as a knife when necessary.

FL1686 “Super Hornet” MkI Flintlock Musket

  • A modernized version of the Hornet 3 Musket. This version of the musket is even easier to maintain and manufacture than the Hornet 3.

FL1686E1 “Super Hornet” MkII Flintlock Musket (1702)

  • Updated version of first version of the Super Hornet that has slightly increased range and versatility.

FL1686E2 “Super Hornet” MkIII Flintlock Musket (1712)

  • Small changes are made to increase the reliability of the weapon

FL1686E3 “Super Hornet” MkIV Flintlock Musket (1724)

  • Further upgrade to the Super Hornet, increasing range slightly.

PC1686E4 “Super Hornet” MkV Percussion Cap Musket (1729)

  • A modification of the Super Hornet that comes with a percussion-cap, increasing the effectiveness and reliability of British weapons, especially in poor weather.
  • Done while development of a true successor is in the works
  • In addition, upgrade kits were exported across the country in order to upgrade the FL1686E3 to the E4 modification.

XPCBL1729 “Lightning Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1729)

  • The experimental rifle created by McCarthy Arms Company. Due to the nature of the components, the thought was to make an excellent weapon that could be used by the few rather than a mass-producible weapon that can be used by many.
  • The main feature of this weapon is the breech loading mechanism with the rifle, allowing for a faster reload than what can be seen with conventional muskets of the time.

PC1730 “BumbleBee” MkI Percussion Cap Musket (1730)

  • A rifle developed by the British following the acquisition of percussion-cap technology, the McCarthy Arms Company rushed to develop a percussion cap musket of their own, resulting in the Lightning Bee.
  • Though its early renditions had “teething issues”, these problems would be rectified in 1731.

PC1730E1 “BumbleBee” MkII Percussion Cap Musket (1731)

  • Models of the Lightning Bee MkI with many of the issues found in the MkI model ironed out

PCBL1729E1 “Lightning Bee” MkI Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1734)

  • The first production model of the Lightning Bee, though only produced in a few numbers.

PC1730E2 “BumbleBee” MkIII Percussion Cap Musket (1738)

  • More reliable version of the BumbleBee MkII. Also featured the capability to launch congreve rockets, though this variant is found in small numbers (PC1730E2-C)

XPCBL1742 “Rocket Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1742)

  • A “Lightning Bee” Rifle that is capable of mounting a congreve rocket that can be launched from the bayonet socket. A fuse is manually pit and the rocket is launched forward.
    • Due to the few number of rockets as well as the complexity of the breech loading mechanism, like the breechloading technology, only SPARTANS can be found with this weapon

PC1730E3 “BumbleBee” MkIV Percussion Cap Musket (1749)

  • Essentially the PC1730E2-C Musket that is more commonplace.

PC1751 “Hudson BumbleBee” MkI Percussion Cap Musket (1751)

  • A modification of the “BumbleBee MkIV” Musket that features a simpler firing mechanism leading to ease of manufacturing and maintenance.
  • Also named after “Sir Robert B Hudson”, an engineer within the MAC who perished in Galatoi as he was observing MAC muskets in-action.

PCBL1756 “R.L.B” MkI Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1756)

  • The Rocket Lightning Bee, abbreviated to “R.L.B”, is the culmination of the Lightning Bee and Rocket Bee, featuring the best features of both rifles while being easier to mass produce.

PCS1757 “Thunderer 3” Percussion-cap Sidearm (1757)

  • The first model of sidearm featuring a percussion-cap, rather than a flintlock mechanism for firing the weapon.


MAC Cannons: MAC continues to produce MAC Cannons (McCarthy Arms in a variety of calibers and sizes, ranging from small 6 pound field cannons to 32 pound naval cannons. At least in Britain, McCarthy Industries has the monopoly on the firearms industry.

Produced models:

2-pounder “snub-nose” MAC Cannon (1608)

  • Created for usage on Vinland longboats, more to fire on smaller vessels than anything else
  • Can be argued that muskets would be more effective than these small peashooters, but the extra punch is helpful

6-pounder medium field MAC Cannon (1578)

  • The main cannon used by both the British Royal Army and Marine Corps.
  • Also used on British Carrier Vessels

9-pounder “tickler” MAC Cannon

  • The lightest cannon used on British Warships (excluding Carriers)

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1588)

  • The mainstay cannon of British Warships

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1641)

  • An updated version of the 16-pounder cannon.

32-pounder “long-nose” MAC Cannon (1603)

  • Heaviest cannon that the British used. Reserved for the largest of British vessels.


Research and Development

  • The British Doctrine of Global Power (1743): As Britain expands throughout the world, questions are raised into how to protect British interests abroad. As such, the British decide on two things, which are enacted on immediately:
  1. Training of a local militia force that can hold down the fort; primarily only used in defensive situations, though can also participate as a reserve force to plug in holes and whatnot as necessary.
  2. Increase funding and the expansion of the British Marine Corps; these troops are going to be trained to be able to theoretically deploy anywhere in the world, and are to be recruited from every inch of the empire to allow the Marines to respond to any conflict anywhere at any time.
  • In addition, the British focus more of their efforts on their navy, since all of their territory is separated by the sea.
  • Outback Training
    • Due to the conflict in Africa beginning to heat up, troops are beginning to be trained in a similarly inhospitable area, in order to get troops accustomed to fighting in extremely arid regions such as British Galatoi
      • In 1757, the uprising in Nagasato is the baptism of fire for the program, showing the effectiveness of the program and a general expansion of the program.
  • Torpedo Technology
    • In Nagasato, old weapons from the 1400’s have been rediscovered. As such, the British look into ways of updating this technology.
      • Development is put into determining how to implement these torpedoes into British naval doctrine
  • Improved Transportation
    • Due to most British interests economically existing in Asia, British engineers begin looking into economical ways to cut down on the time it takes for goods to be transported
      • Canals: Within British rivers, canal technology is being developed by Bridgewaters Waterworks (a company that specializes in canal technology), as British cargo boats are able to penetrate deeper into the British mainland
        • Through the efforts of Bridgewaters Waterworks, internal highways of water are being constructed around the England sector of mainland England.
      • Steam: Through the power of steam, engineers and designers brainstorm ways to use steam (created from burning either charcoal, wood, or coal) to power devices.
        • At McCarthy Arms Company, some of the first steam-powered machines were implemented in small numbers for the manufacturing of MAC guns and cannons.
        • Trains: With the invention of the train, British Engineers look into the logistical benefits of the train.
          • Current models of trains don’t have a powerful enough power plant to pull much behind it. However, the potential is more than evident.

Diplomacy

  • Australia: Due to Anastasia King’s decree to unite Australia, tribes are forced to choose between aligning with the British or standing and fighting them.
    • Same to be said for those in Novus Silundia
  • Ghana-Ashanti (1758): Upon receiving news of their invasion of Sokotoi, British diplomats were sent to Ghana-Ashanti, to inform them of British intentions in Galatoi and ask if they could coordinate an offensive against Sokotoi.
  • Indian Nations: Seeing that the countries of India are friendly, the British East India Company reaches out to all the nations in the area, hoping to strengthen their ties with all nations and open up trade routes with all.
  • Jaisalmer: The British ask the government if it is possible for them to purchase a port city, or at least a location for British ships and merchants to operate out of.
    • In addition, Britain (through the McCarthy Arms Company) looks into local companies in the country in order to purchase them.
  • Matagaskar: Due to the Civil War that broke out, the governor of the island does two things in response:
  1. They reach out to whichever one of the organizations is located closest to the British town of Port Dolphin. The governor offers to supply them with British weaponry and support, if they are willing to cooperate
  2. Troops are requested to assist in keeping the peace (around Port Dolphin, at least)
  • Occitania: With tensions rising between France and England, the British reach out to Occitania to reaffirm the Occitanian-British relationship, as well as look into what the British can do to support their ally.
  • Saxony (1758): The British reach out to the country (on account of them having a common enemy) and asks if they could work together in a joint-invasion of France
  • Vijayanagara: Due to trading with locals of the region, British influence spreads through the area, though slowly.


Allies

  • Galatoi: Trading partner with the BAKA company.
  • Naranga: British ally on the Asian mainland.
  • Occitania: British ally on the European mainland.
  • Toyotomi Shogunate: British ally (through the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company) in Asian area.
  • Vestkyst: Norwegian allies in the North Sea. The oldest ally of Britain, harkening back to the British Empire’s founding.
  • Yolngu: The furthest of Britain’s allies, the island-continent has metals far better than those in the region. As such, the majority of the trade from the region primarily consists of metals.


Events

  • Anglo-Franco War of the Seven Years: A conflict that began in West Africa before becoming a world-wide conflict. Can be considered the first unofficial “world war”.
    • Events:
      • French invasion of Yenreshkanaan (1756): Upon receiving news of the French mobilizing, Colonel Washington receives orders to move into Yenreshkanaan to try and make the most of the turmoil in the area.
        • However, due to British bungling and the sudden order to mobilize, the general was only able to capture a single French fort in the Appalachian before encountering fierce French resistance.
      • Sokotan Invasion of Galatoi (1757): 80,000 riflemen make their advance on British-held Galatoi. The small British force in the area has no hope of holding the line, and is pushed back all the way to the coast.
        • British riflemen and cavalry work on holding what ground they’re able to hold, though it is evident that reinforcements will not be able to change the tide of the conflict. As such, the army evacuated to Fort Galatoi and British Akan after just two months, and is one of the biggest disasters in the history of the British Royal Army Corps.
        • Even with the majority of the army evacuated, various groups that oppose the new Sokotan rulers begin to rebel, acting in small groups
      • British Invasion of Mumbai (1757): Seeing an opening to acquire additional territory, British East-Indian Mercenary Forces (in conjunction with some troops from Yolngu) invade French-controlled Mumbai. Due to the better logistics the British possess in Asia, Mumbai falls to the British East-India Company after a few months.
        • One notable battle was the Battle of Fort 53, a Fort recently captured by a British vanguard force before being attacked by a larger French force. As the fighting progresses, a rainstorm passes through the area, causing the French gunpowder to become unusable, allowing the British to force the French back, since their gunpowder did not suffer the same fate.
      • The Duels of the Atlantic (1757): As the conflict begins to expand beyond Africa and Arcadia, British and French ships begin to clash with one another.
        • British and French sailors are some of the best in the world. As such, both forces are almost evenly matched. However, due to the experience and training of British sailors, it is clear that the British hold a decisive enough advantage over the French to reinforce Britain’s overseas territories, including the garrison in Calais, Gibraltar, and so on (though at heavy cost to both sailors and ships on both sides)
      • Stalemate in the Occitan Front (1757): As the conflict spreads, it is clear that any advance into Occitania will be an uphill battle. With the number of forts in the area (that all must be sieged for any invasion to continue), the British and Occitanians are locked in a stalemate of sorts.
        • The thought of a potential flanking attack is proposed, but due to the risk of accidentally involving more nations into the conflict, the idea is tossed out for the time being.
      • Ghana-Ashanti joins the War (1758): In 1758, the Ghana-Ashanti join the war against Sokotoi as they launch an invasion of Sokotoi itself.
        • As this is happening, a few weeks later, British boots are landed in Galatoi as they return to Galatoi to liberate the region from Sokotoi.
      • The Joint Anglo-Saxon Invasion of France (1759): As tensions rise, through shrewd diplomacy, planning, and external factors, the Saxons in Europe move troops for an invasion of France itself. In addition, British troops in Calais mobilize, hoping to draw French troops away from an invasion of Normandy by British Marines.
  • The Unification of the Land Down Under (WiP):
    • The BAKA Gaikokuhito, now jointly in control of the country of Yolngu along with the tribal leaders of Yolngu.
    • With the assimilation of Yolngu into the British Empire came the additional baggage of the penultimate plan of Yolngu: the unification of Australia (name still a WiP)
    • The British begin to ramp up the process of claiming Australia, Tasmania, and Novus Silundia.
  • Expansion Beyond the Horizon:
    • Arcadian Colonies
      • The Northwest Trail: In an effort to try and create a safer (and shorter) route for supplies to travel to and from British Yolngu and British Nagasato, the BAKA Gaikokuhito and BFG Companies join forces to create a route that spans “from sea to shining sea”
        • From the first town of Port Novus Arcadia, British explorers begin charting the region, meeting various locals along the way. Many of these locals have never come into contact with those from the outside world.
        • Either way, the British are careful not to provoke any of the local powers as they chart out the regions of otl northern Washington and the southernmost bits of otl British Columbia.
        • The Adventures of Okita Tsukasa and Maria “Trailblazer” Mitchell: This unlikely duo are among the first explorers of the West Coast of North Arcadia and are by far the most accomplished of the first wave of explorers.
          • Setting off in 1756, the duo head north along the coast towards otl Vancouver before turning east and navigating by the movement of the sun and assistance from the local tribes.
            • Though some territory they trek through have been chartered before, what makes Tsukasa and Maria notable is their charisma (and how they work well with each other)
            • Suffice to say, in addition to being good explorers, the two are also good diplomats, allowing the two to have good relations with the locals in the areas they travel through, which allows the British in return to have good relations with the locals.
          • Through the duo’s efforts, they manage to traverse from west to east, charting out vast stretches of land, allowing British planners and engineers to plan the next stage of development.
    • India
      • The British East India Company hatches a plan to acquire more control over the continent
        • With the takeover of Gujarat, the British East India Company looks into establishing more trading ports in northern territories.
    • Yolngu
      • The combined efforts of Britain and Yolngu slowly spread throughout Australia, as the tribes of Australia became friendlier towards the two powers.
      • Outback Grenadiers: Due to the success seen when training marines, the army rallied for a similar program, which was granted in 1753.
      • Nova Silundia: Much like the mainland, the British wrestled control of the island, and was successfully achieved in 1749.

Famous Vessels


HMS Victory (15XX)

  • Laid down in 15XX and launched in 15XX, the HMS Victory is a 50-gun First-class Frigate.
  • The namesake of her class, HMS Victory was the first pride-and-joy of the Royal Navy.
  • Famously captained by Admiral Francis Drake, the ship would lead the British navy to victory when it defeated the Spanish Armada, directly leading to one of the major reasons why Britain won in the Anglo-Spanish War in the late 16th century.
  • From there, it would also see combat in the League Wars as it ensured that those opposing Britain felt the wrath of her powerful broadside.
  • Eventually, the ship was retired in 1647, where it was put into the reserve fleet as a training vessel for new sailors.


HMS Fortune’s Bounty (1626)

  • An Olive-class Multi-purpose Merchant Frigate given to the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company from the British government. Laid in 1624 and left on its maiden voyage in 1626, the ship would find itself under the ownership of Fortuna King, a woman well-known for her assistance in the Wu-Narangan War in 1633 when she was involved in both a trading run to Naranga in addition to the assassination of the Wu General in the region.
  • Though the ship would remain in East Asia for most of its life, it would also visit Britain and the Mediterranean Sea during its time afloat under the ownership of Fortuna.
  • In 1661, while returning to Britain from Yolngu, the ship encountered rough seas around the southernmost tip of South America. Though it survived, the ship was badly beaten, as it limped to the British outpost on the Falklands Island. From there, Fortuna and her crew hitched a ride on a vessel back to Britain, where she received permission from the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company to purchase a replacement vessel: the Fortune’s Bounty II.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1661


HMS Sovereign of the Seas (1637)

  • Laid down in 1634 and launched in 1637, this ship is essentially an engineer’s wet dream. Built “just because,” the ship has more than double the guns of the next largest ships (the Victory-class) and was also over double the size, this ship towered over anything the British would build for the next half-decade or so.
  • That being said, the ship was also ladened with issues, such as poor handling and the likes.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704 to be used in HMS Sovereign


HMS Fortune’s Bounty II (1662)

  • A 28-gun xebec ordered by Fortuna King.
    • Also was equipped with two hwachas for testing purposes
  • Saw effective use under Fortuna’s captainship.
  • Notable for the Battle of the Vestkyst Fjords (1667) as well as for its involvement with rescuing Duchess Anastasia during the Vestkyst Civil War (1666).
  • Given to Lumi when Fortuna passed.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704


HMS Warspite (1668)

  • A 64-gun ship-of-the-line that served as Fortuna King’s flagship during the Anglo-Dutch War
  • Led the British fleet to victory against the Dutch fleet in the sole naval engagement in the “European front”
  • Fate: ???

Mod Events

  • The Grand Unification: Following the Scandinavian administrative reforms some time after the unification, several efforts were made spearheaded by Hersker Isolde to unite the two parliaments of Vestkyst and Svearike into one unifying legislative body. The underlying differences in interest between representatives of both sides and grievances due to the war hampered this process, however, and this went on for another two decades, while both legislatures continued to function separately under the Union. Eventually, in early 1760, with the support of a younger, more supportive political cohort, the process of uniting the two parliaments were finally set into motion, and February 3, 1761 marked the first session of the Grand Assembly of Scandinavia, a new legislative body over the vast Nordic realm
  • The Gilded Empress [1]: To the rulers of Varangia, it had become clear that Varangia needed to ensure a clear and stable succesion. Indeed, the Varangian crisis of the early 18th century was caused by unstable succesion, and ended withp unstable succesion. Of course, this was not the sole problem needing to be solved. Avaria held great sway over Vadangia matters at the moment. One particularly egregious example was the fact that the Castellan of Kánsbaurg, the Avar head of government, was also the older brother of the Keisarian king.

    Regardless, Abylai Soikkola found a solution. Maybe.

    Firstly, he granted the position of Varangian Emperor a provision which allowed them to order the deposition of one ruler should half or more of Varangia's constituent states agree. Secondly, he began searching prospective heir - one non-native to Varangia and one unaffiliated, even slightly, to Avaria. Luckily, Soikkola was the older brother to a minor German noble. As such, Abylai contacted his sister and arranged for her son, his nephew, to become the emperor of Varangia upon his death. This was arranged relatively quickly, and so the 14 year noble Charles Peter Ulrich - soon to be Peter of Varangia - was brought to Merya in 1752. However, with him was a young girl from the Kingdom of Saxony, arranged to marry Peter in a political move to allegedly curb Vesnian and Avar influence in East-Central Europe. Her name was Sophie, but the world would know her as Catherine.

  • Dreamtime Nightmares (Part 3): During the first couple years, the coalition against the pro-Yolngu and its allies had made decent progress on Eora, mainly consisting of skirmishes along the borders, with more successful ones resulted in the capture of a few of warriors or regular people from here and there. Although they had learned how the west deals with conflict, their way of warfare is not the same idea of a European/Western styled one. With the dawn of the 1760s decade, Pro-Yolngu (and irregular British forces picked out from their training) had managed to build up a little away from the centers of conflict. Even some Australian hunters had joined up to the effort, brandishing unique weapons not seen by the tribes in the southern part of Australia. By 1762, the Pro-Yolngu forces had pushed along the coastlines (and sent bounty hunters deeper inland) in an effort to at least be able to capture more important figures as bargains for peace

  • Diplomacy:
  • Events: (1745-1750)
    • Hail to the Republic (Part 1): When the Sicilian Gang War ended Byzas wanted to realize his ideas of a united republic. He sought to streamline his control of the government away from the rest of his clan, using the now senile Giuseppe III to very slowly push out reforms. Mazzini's thought was becoming very popular for the hope of repairing Southern Italy from the economic damage it had sustained.
    • Death of A King: When Giuseppe III died in 1748 it stopped Byzas's plans right in their tracks. Francis II was crowned the new king, and he made it very public his plans to undo all reforms and root out the presence of the crime families.
  • Events: (1750-1755)
    • Hail to the Republic (Part 2): The Death of Giuseppe had thrown a wrench into Byzas's plan but it also opened a great opportunity. As Nicolas II enacted his plan, political violence and general instability followed. The Reforms brought a semblance of stability, and under Byzas's command he tried to minimize the amount of crime actually committed by the dominant crime family while violently rooting out its competition. As Anti-Government views spread across the nation the Palaiologos Clan was essentially removed from direct control. The Clan used their remaining power to spread more Enlightenment works, anti-monarchy propaganda, and general support for revolution.
    • Nicolas was an adept King who was able to wrangle a good portion of the army from corruption by crime families. He was racing to organize and root out corruption in the military to suppress the riots that were breaking out. Eventually he did and started ordering rioters and protesters to be shot.
    • Death of A King (Part 2): The unrest caused by this reaction was immense, moderates were horrified and radicals had their beliefs validated. On March 6th 1755 a riot in Napoli would eventually become a brawl between the Royal Guard and the innocent citizens of Napoli. A few members of the Mob had gotten caught in the accident, and then the Royal Guard had been forced to retreat as the Palaiologos supplied the citizens with weapons as they marched towards the capital.
  • Events: (1755-1760)
    • Hail to the Republic (Part 3): The King had been arrested and removed from power. Byzas had gotten everything he wanted, but he didn't know how to hold onto it. Eventually creating a republic, and making himself Consul. The first years of the republic were ones of chaos and internal strife. Although Byzas had used Mazzini's method and was able to slowly stabilize the nation. He planned to rule for life, guiding the republic and allowing an election after his death. But that would never happen as Byzas died of an unkown illness in January of 1760, replaced by his son Constans.
    • Ave, true to Caesar: Moreno Accardi was a General and member of the Palaiologos who was able to rise the ranks after the reforms of the military performed by Giuseppe. While Moreno cared little for Republicanism he used it as a way to increase his own power in society. When Byzas died the nation was plunged into chaos, Moreno used this opportunity to stage a coup of Constants, making himself first consul. Because he was a mostly unknown figure he would surround himself with well known and respected people to raise others opinions of him. His very first goal was to stabilize and reform the nation's law. The chaos that had preceded had reduced the crime families to squabbling factions who could be bribed and exterminated.

    • While most are able to fight, members of the Roundtable are encouraged to branch out into their own craft, such as pottery and sheepherding, with the idea that everyone should act like a Roundtable Knight and give their all into both their craft and their country.
    • The only way to become a Roundtable Knight is to be selected by an existing member of the group. Most knights tend to make apprentices out of those they recruit to the Roundtable, and generally, no one usually complains when a Roundtable Knight selects someone to join the ranks of the Roundtables. Depending on the country/chapter, one can also be appointed to the Roundtable by the crown.
    • In 1527, three factions were formed within the Roundtables

Notable Companies and Organizations


McCarthy Arms Company (MAC):


McCarthy Arms Company (MAC) is the main firearms and cannon manufacturer for the British Military. Though other smaller companies exist, none have the prestige nor manufacturing capabilities MAC has.


Produced models:

FL1610 “Wasp MkI” Flintlock Musket (1610)

  • The first musket in the series of muskets made in response to “Manufacture d'armes de Châtellerault” and their flintlock musket.
  • Hastily made, the musket has various issues, and has a higher-than-usual casualty rate among those who use it due to the tendency for the musket’s barrel to implode.
  • Due to this reputation, the musket was given an additional nickname: “Barrel of Surprises”

FL1610E1 “Wasp MkII” Flintlock Musket (1611)

  • A modified L1610 that doesn't implode (more than most muskets of the era).

FL1610E2 “Wasp MkIII” Flintlock musket (1612)

  •  The version of the musket that was used by the British Military when they joined the League Wars the same year.
  • This musket features a slightly redesigned barrel, slightly increasing the range and improving the reliability of the musket even more.

FL1610E3 “Wasp MkIV” Flintlock Musket (1614)

  • Essentially the Wasp MkIII, but its components are simplified a bit, allowing for easier production.

FL1616 “Honey MkI” Flintlock Musket (1616)

  • A modified version of the Wasp MkIV for use in hunting.
    • Essentially a simplified version of the Wasp MkIV for commercial purchase
  • Also becomes the model of musket that was exported to allies during the League Wars

FL1610E4 “Wasp MkV” Flintlock Musket (1619)

  • A version of the Wasp MkIV that is made from Yolngu steel, giving the musket more durability

FL1616E1 “Honey MkII” Flintlock Musket (1621)

  • An improved version of the Honey MkI, taking feedback from its users when making said improvements.

FL1625 “Hornet MkI” Flintlock Musket (1625)

  • The successor to the Wasp series of muskets, featuring a slightly simplified design for the firing mechanism, allowing for easier construction of the musket, though early versions of the musket has issues due to kinks that weren’t figured out (though not as bad as was seen on the first Wasp muskets)

FL1625E1 “Hornet MkII” Flintlock Musket (1626)

  • Sent into the field in late 1626, the musket fixes the issues seen in the Hornet MkI.

FL1616E2 “Honey MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1627)

  • An improvement over the Honey MkII that features some improvements that were seen on the Hornet-series of muskets.

FL1625E2 “Hornet MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1632)

  • An improved version of the Hornet MkII, and is the primary musket used by the BMAC Company in its early years.

FL1636 “Hornet 2 MkI” Flintlock Musket (1636)

  • Originally just a simple upgrade, the Hornet 2 musket had so many improvements made to it that the company reclassified it as its own series of muskets.
  • Included in the many changes made is the narrower barrel. Though the bullets are smaller, due to a smaller round being used, the bullets are faster, have longer ranges, slightly faster reload, and are marginally more accurate than the original version of the Hornet.
  • Though the musket doesn’t have as good of a stopping power, its improvements arguably offset this weakness.

FL1636E1 “Hornet 2 MkII” Flintlock Musket (1642)

  • Modifications related to its reliability in hot, humid regions are added to the musket.
  • In addition, this is the first musket (used by the British) that was able to mount a bayonet.

XRS1652 “Thunderer” Experimental Revolving Sidearm (1652)

  • An experimental 3-shot revolver produced in extremely few quantities (around 56 or so)
  • The idea is for rounds to be pre-loaded into the revolving barrel of the pistol, which is locked in place by three pins when firing. Once a bullet is expended, the user delaches the pins and manually rotates the barrel before locking it back in place. This process is tedious and doesn’t give the gun that much of an advantage over normal conventional pistols on account of the cumbersome barrel, in addition to the pistol’s unreliability (even by standards of the time)

FL1656 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1656)

  • The third version of the Hornet musket, which took the FL1636E1 model of musket and made the musket easier to produce. Still features the capability for using a bayonet that is secured under the barrel of the musket from the FL1636E1.

FL1656-EXP “Honey 2” Flintlock Musket (1657)

  • Essentially an FL1636E1 musket that is cailbered in the conventional ammo size used by most nations. Also features the capability for usage of a plug bayonet.
  • Since both this musket and the “Hornet 3” musket have the same catalog name, the “Honey 2” was given the -EXP notation at the end to distinguish it as the export musket.

FS1659 “Thunderer 2” Flintlock Sidearm (1659)

  • A non-revolver version of the XRS1652 musket. This sidearm is provided both to officers and cavalry units in the military and only in small numbers.

FL1656E1 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1666)

  • Slight improvement to the Hornet 3 that was used in the Anglo-Dutch War. The gun features a slight improvement to its accuracy as well as a better mechanism for the bayonet, which is now custom-built for the musket itself and can double as a knife when necessary.

FL1686 “Super Hornet” MkI Flintlock Musket

  • A modernized version of the Hornet 3 Musket. This version of the musket is even easier to maintain and manufacture than the Hornet 3.

FL1686E1 “Super Hornet” MkII Flintlock Musket (1702)

  • Updated version of first version of the Super Hornet that has slightly increased range and versatility.

FL1686E2 “Super Hornet” MkIII Flintlock Musket (1712)

  • Small changes are made to increase the reliability of the weapon

FL1686E3 “Super Hornet” MkIV Flintlock Musket (1724)

  • Further upgrade to the Super Hornet, increasing range slightly.

PC1686E4 “Super Hornet” MkV Percussion Cap Musket (1729)

  • A modification of the Super Hornet that comes with a percussion-cap, increasing the effectiveness and reliability of British weapons, especially in poor weather.
  • Done while development of a true successor is in the works
  • In addition, upgrade kits were exported across the country in order to upgrade the FL1686E3 to the E4 modification.

XPCBL1729 “Lightning Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1729)

  • The experimental rifle created by McCarthy Arms Company. Due to the nature of the components, the thought was to make an excellent weapon that could be used by the few rather than a mass-producible weapon that can be used by many.
  • The main feature of this weapon is the breech loading mechanism with the rifle, allowing for a faster reload than what can be seen with conventional muskets of the time.

PC1730 “BumbleBee” MkI Percussion Cap Musket (1730)

  • A rifle developed by the British following the acquisition of percussion-cap technology, the McCarthy Arms Company rushed to develop a percussion cap musket of their own, resulting in the Lightning Bee.
  • Though its early renditions had “teething issues”, these problems would be rectified in 1731.

PC1730E1 “BumbleBee” MkII Percussion Cap Musket (1731)

  • Models of the Lightning Bee MkI with many of the issues found in the MkI model ironed out

PCBL1729E1 “Lightning Bee” MkI Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1734)

  • The first production model of the Lightning Bee, though only produced in a few numbers.

PC1730E2 “BumbleBee” MkIII Percussion Cap Musket (1738)

  • More reliable version of the BumbleBee MkII. Also featured the capability to launch congreve rockets, though this variant is found in small numbers (PC1730E2-C)

XPCBL1742 “Rocket Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1742)

  • A “Lightning Bee” Rifle that is capable of mounting a congreve rocket that can be launched from the bayonet socket. A fuse is manually pit and the rocket is launched forward.
    • Due to the few number of rockets as well as the complexity of the breech loading mechanism, like the breechloading technology, only SPARTANS can be found with this weapon

PC1730E3 “BumbleBee” MkIV Percussion Cap Musket (1749)

  • Essentially the PC1730E2-C Musket that is more commonplace.

PC1751 “Hudson BumbleBee” MkI Percussion Cap Musket (1751)

  • A modification of the “BumbleBee MkIV” Musket that features a simpler firing mechanism leading to ease of manufacturing and maintenance.
  • Also named after “Sir Robert B Hudson”, an engineer within the MAC who perished in Galatoi as he was observing MAC muskets in-action.

PCBL1756 “R.L.B” MkI Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1756)

  • The Rocket Lightning Bee, abbreviated to “R.L.B”, is the culmination of the Lightning Bee and Rocket Bee, featuring the best features of both rifles while being easier to mass produce.

PCS1757 “Thunderer 3” Percussion-cap Sidearm (1757)

  • The first model of sidearm featured a percussion-cap, rather than a flintlock mechanism for firing the weapon.


MAC Cannons: MAC continues to produce MAC Cannons (McCarthy Arms in a variety of calibers and sizes, ranging from small 6 pound field cannons to 32 pound naval cannons. At least in Britain, McCarthy Industries has the monopoly on the firearms industry.

Produced models:

2-pounder “snub-nose” MAC Cannon (1608)

  • Created for usage on Vinland longboats, more to fire on smaller vessels than anything else
  • Can be argued that muskets would be more effective than these small peashooters, but the extra punch is helpful

6-pounder medium field MAC Cannon (1578)

  • The main cannon used by both the British Royal Army and Marine Corps.
  • Also used on British Carrier Vessels

9-pounder “tickler” MAC Cannon

  • The lightest cannon used on British Warships (excluding Carriers)

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1588)

  • The mainstay cannon of British Warships

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1641)

  • An updated version of the 16-pounder cannon.

32-pounder “long-nose” MAC Cannon (1603)

  • Heaviest cannon that the British used. Reserved for the largest of British vessels.


Research and Development

  • The British Doctrine of Global Power (1743): As Britain expands throughout the world, questions are raised into how to protect British interests abroad. As such, the British decide on two things, which are enacted on immediately:
  1. Training of a local militia force that can hold down the fort; primarily only used in defensive situations, though can also participate as a reserve force to plug in holes and whatnot as necessary.
  2. Increase funding and the expansion of the British Marine Corps; these troops are going to be trained to be able to theoretically deploy anywhere in the world, and are to be recruited from every inch of the empire to allow the Marines to respond to any conflict anywhere at any time.
  • In addition, the British focus more of their efforts on their navy, since all of their territory is separated by the sea.
  • Outback Training
    • Due to the conflict in Africa beginning to heat up, troops are beginning to be trained in a similarly inhospitable area, in order to get troops accustomed to fighting in extremely arid regions such as British Galatoi
      • In 1757, the uprising in Nagasato was the baptism of fire for the program, showing the effectiveness of the program and a general expansion of the program.
  • Torpedo Technology
    • In Nagasato, old weapons from the 1400’s have been rediscovered. As such, the British look into ways of updating this technology.
      • Development is put into determining how to implement these torpedoes into British naval doctrine
  • Improved Transportation
    • Due to most British interests economically existing in Asia, British engineers begin looking into economical ways to cut down on the time it takes for goods to be transported
      • Canals: Within British rivers, canal technology is being developed by Bridgewaters Waterworks (a company that specializes in canal technology), as British cargo boats are able to penetrate deeper into the British mainland
        • Through the efforts of Bridgewaters Waterworks, internal highways of water are being constructed around the England sector of mainland England.
      • Steam: Through the power of steam, engineers and designers brainstorm ways to use steam (created from burning either charcoal, wood, or coal) to power devices.
        • At McCarthy Arms Company, some of the first steam-powered machines were implemented in small numbers for the manufacturing of MAC guns and cannons.
        • Trains: With the invention of the train, British Engineers look into the logistical benefits of the train.
          • Current models of trains don’t have a powerful enough power plant to pull much behind it. However, the potential is more than evident.

Diplomacy

  • Australia: Due to Anastasia King’s decree to unite Australia, tribes are forced to choose between aligning with the British or standing and fighting them.
    • Same to be said for those in Novus Silundia
  • Indian Nations: Seeing that the countries of India are friendly, the British East India Company reaches out to all the nations in the area, hoping to strengthen their ties with all nations and open up trade routes with all.
  • Jaisalmer: The British ask the government if it is possible for them to purchase a port city, or at least a location for British ships and merchants to operate out of.
    • In addition, Britain (through the McCarthy Arms Company) looks into local companies in the country in order to purchase them.
  • Matagaskar: Due to the Civil War that broke out, the governor of the island does two things in response:
  1. They reach out to whichever one of the organizations is located closest to the British town of Port Dolphin. The governor offers to supply them with British weaponry and support, if they are willing to cooperate
  2. Troops are requested to assist in keeping the peace (around Port Dolphin, at least)
  • Saxony: Though Britain is pulling out of the conflict, they still provide weapons to the Germans (partially since Britain doesn’t need so many guns as the country demilitarizes)
  • Vijayanagara: Due to trading with locals of the region, British influence spreads through the area, though slowly.


Allies

  • Galatoi: Trading partner with the BAKA company.
  • Naranga: British ally on the Asian mainland.
  • Toyotomi Shogunate: British ally (through the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company) in Asian area.
  • Vestkyst: Norwegian allies in the North Sea. The oldest ally of Britain, harkening back to the British Empire’s founding.
  • Yolngu: The furthest of Britain’s allies, the island-continent has metals far better than those in the region. As such, the majority of the trade from the region primarily consists of metals.


Events

  • Anglo-Franco War of the Seven Years: A conflict that began in West Africa before becoming a world-wide conflict. Can be considered the first unofficial “world war”.
    • Events:
      • Mainland Europe: Landing in Normandy, British troops advance with the goal of causing chaos for the French military.
        • Though many difficulties came up, the fact that France is fighting multiple opponents on the mainland force France to make peace with Britain, with France ceding various territory to Britain in return for an end to hostilities.
      • Galatoi and Sokotan: Happening simultaneously with Ghana-Ashanti, the British land a large invasion force in Galatoi to liberate Galatoi from Sokotoi, though no coordination was present between Ghana-Ashanti and British troops in the region.
        • Starting in 1758, a combined attack from both the army and marine corps push Sokotoi forces in the region back all the way to their original lines before the British cross into the Aen Feudatory to reclaim a lost territory of Galatoi: Timbuktu.
        • Once the territory was captured, the British dared not to advance any further, and began to construct various forts in the region to protect their new gains.
      • Arcadia: (See further details in bat’s turn)
  • The Unification of the Land Down Under (WiP):
    • The British Empire seeks to establish a few more coastal towns to assist with moving resources around the country.
  • Expansion Beyond the Horizon:
    • Arcadian Colonies
      • The Northwest Trail: In an effort to try and create a safer (and shorter) route for supplies to travel to and from British Yolngu and British Nagasato, the BAKA Gaikokuhito and BFG Companies join forces to create a route that spans “from sea to shining sea”
        • The Beginning of a Vast Trail: In 1761, approval was given for the construction of a trail from Port Novus Arcadia.
          • The plan calls for various “pit stop” towns to be constructed along a pre-planned route
          • With the assistance of the Trailblazing duo from the half-decade prior, Okita Tsukasa and Maria “Trailblazer” Mitchell as diplomats, some tribes gave the British permission for construction of such “pit stop” towns
    • India
      • The British East India Company hatches a plan to acquire more control over the continent
        • With the takeover of Gujarat, the British East India Company looks into establishing more trading ports in northern territories.
    • Yolngu
      • The combined efforts of Britain and Yolngu slowly spread throughout Australia, as the tribes of Australia became friendlier towards the two powers.
      • Outback Grenadiers: Due to the success seen when training marines, the army rallied for a similar program, which was granted in 1753.
      • Nova Silundia: Much like the mainland, the British wrestled control of the island, and was successfully achieved in 1749.

Famous Vessels


HMS Victory (15XX)

  • Laid down in 15XX and launched in 15XX, the HMS Victory is a 50-gun First-class Frigate.
  • The namesake of her class, HMS Victory was the first pride-and-joy of the Royal Navy.
  • Famously captained by Admiral Francis Drake, the ship would lead the British navy to victory when it defeated the Spanish Armada, directly leading to one of the major reasons why Britain won in the Anglo-Spanish War in the late 16th century.
  • From there, it would also see combat in the League Wars as it ensured that those opposing Britain felt the wrath of her powerful broadside.
  • Eventually, the ship was retired in 1647, where it was put into the reserve fleet as a training vessel for new sailors.


HMS Fortune’s Bounty (1626)

  • An Olive-class Multi-purpose Merchant Frigate given to the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company from the British government. Laid in 1624 and left on its maiden voyage in 1626, the ship would find itself under the ownership of Fortuna King, a woman well-known for her assistance in the Wu-Narangan War in 1633 when she was involved in both a trading run to Naranga in addition to the assassination of the Wu General in the region.
  • Though the ship would remain in East Asia for most of its life, it would also visit Britain and the Mediterranean Sea during its time afloat under the ownership of Fortuna.
  • In 1661, while returning to Britain from Yolngu, the ship encountered rough seas around the southernmost tip of South America. Though it survived, the ship was badly beaten, as it limped to the British outpost on the Falklands Island. From there, Fortuna and her crew hitched a ride on a vessel back to Britain, where she received permission from the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company to purchase a replacement vessel: the Fortune’s Bounty II.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1661


HMS Sovereign of the Seas (1637)

  • Laid down in 1634 and launched in 1637, this ship is essentially an engineer’s wet dream. Built “just because,” the ship has more than double the guns of the next largest ships (the Victory-class) and was also over double the size, this ship towered over anything the British would build for the next half-decade or so.
  • That being said, the ship was also ladened with issues, such as poor handling and the likes.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704 to be used in HMS Sovereign


HMS Fortune’s Bounty II (1662)

  • A 28-gun xebec ordered by Fortuna King.
    • Also was equipped with two hwachas for testing purposes
  • Saw effective use under Fortuna’s captainship.
  • Notable for the Battle of the Vestkyst Fjords (1667) as well as for its involvement with rescuing Duchess Anastasia during the Vestkyst Civil War (1666).
  • Given to Lumi when Fortuna passed.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704


HMS Warspite (1668)

  • A 64-gun ship-of-the-line that served as Fortuna King’s flagship during the Anglo-Dutch War
  • Led the British fleet to victory against the Dutch fleet in the sole naval engagement in the “European front”
  • Fate: ???

Most of the members of the parliament that are peasants belong to this party which is primarily agrarian and is also considered protectionist. Also it advocates for christians interests and it is considered a francophile party as it wants to counter what they call “the Atouman threat”. They are neutral to the current political situation.

(A bit harder to edit than usually also for the record no idea why it keeps adding some of my turn at the bottom of the page. I can't see it while editing not used to the new fandom at all lol)


British Western Territories | Albionite New World Colonies

  • Government: Due to reformations dating back to 1717 (Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, the Commonwealth Act), the British territories in the Western Hemisphere has gradually drifted into a sort of self-governance made up of 'colonies', some of which were once protectorates. In the face of the native threat, many colonies has turned to being organized into commonwealths, an organization of neighboring colonies for the purpose of promoting their own economic and military protection. Each commonwealth has their own informal 'council', they rarely meet unless for group decisions in the event of an emergency. Even while they are indirectly controlled or influenced by companies from their mother country, their influence waned over the colonies. As such, many once local companies, led by powerful families that originated from or based in the New World, has quickly grown enough to be able to have influence on par with the "motherland" companies.
  • Commonwealths & Colonies (w/ Population): 7,650M Total. With the establishment of the Commonwealths, there has been a more accurate census for the population of each colony, which turned out to be larger than previously recorded. One of the many reasons was due to the records only showing subjects from Britain themselves and not other places such as the Germanic states, France, or Hispania. Of the total ethnicities, only almost a fifth are descendants from British settlers. But all colonists would consider themselves subjects of Albion. The number of "unpaid labor" is around 600k, mostly in Elysia and Catonzia Commonwealths.
    • Vinland Commonwealth: 2,130k. The Vinland Commonwealth, once the kingdom of Vinland that ruled over the northern part of the continent, they have a long history of brutal conflict and division. It was not until the arrival of the British that things have rapidly calmed down. The Vinland colonies eventually fell under the influence of Albion and were naturally divided up by their own accord, but a significant amount of customs still survive (like Odinism). They experience greater autonomy over other colonies, as unlike others they peacefully and willingly joined. The colony has strong Norse influence, but in recent times became more "British" as a diverse range of settlers came rolling in. This is also in part due to the slower population growth due to emigration to other colonies, only other settlers would stunt the decline. However, half of the Vinland colonies fell under the influence of other families.
      • Agatha: The Realm of Frost and snowy Homesteads is founded and integrated as a fully fledged British colony by 1643. The Schaefer family recently established themselves here, from the German states. They easily established themselves as popular within the Agatha Militiamen.
      • Asturia: Once known as Asturgatan, the British colony was founded in 1643 and has strong Odinist roots. They have one of the longest histories compared to the other colonies, with the exception of Belamane.
      • Belamach (Belamane): The beating heart of the old Vinland realm and Odinism in Arcadia, it mainly centers itself on the edges of the (OTL) St. Lawrence river. It became integrated up as an official British colony by 1643.
      • Culland: While established as a colony like its neighbors in 1643, they actually owned a small part of its modern form when it was first created. It was not only until a couple decades later that the land that belonged to the tribes were gradually integrated into the colony. The Owens family, descendants of Erin Owens, became an influential family in this place. They led the expansion and development of the land over generations.
    • Midland Commonwealth: 1,100k. The Midland Commonwealth, also known as the northern Heartlands, is the heartland of recent European settlement in the colonies, with the colonies in the Commonwealth typically covered with more modern architecture dating to the Enlightenment Era. Although Deasaheim (or Desaham) and New York has non-British origins, their populations are quickly outnumbered by settlers coming from different parts of Europe. The Midlands are also the economic center of the colonies north of Elysia, and has quickly grown to rival their neighbors to the south in terms of trade, setting up future cultural and economic boundaries. They are experiencing the highest rapid growth over the other commonwealths around this time.
      • Deasaheim (Desaham): Early history of the former Norse colony dates back hundreds of years before the arrival of the British, it was not until the early 1510s that the region truly took shape, taking its name off of the city "Deasaheim." The British wouldn't start slowly absorbing and establish it as a colony until the late 1630s. By 1645, it has been fully established as a fully-fledged colony. Unlike most other colonies, the colony was populated by a secondary wave of immigrants who came from other colonies instead of those who migrated directly from Europe. In the late 1600s, the Hammet family, the most influential family in the colony, moved from Pendraconia to establish a settlement called Trentowne. It became a center hub for many settlers from Pendraconia to go to, and serves as a gateway for immigration into the colony. Natural resources in the colony included agricultural land, forests (timber), iron ore, coal, and furs. Major exports from the colony included livestock, rice, wheat, indigo, rice, grain and other agricultural products.
      • New York: Originally founded as a Dutch colony in the early 1600s, "New Netherlands" was birthed from blood and fire. They experienced rapid expansion after conquering all hostile tribes from all sides. It was not until 1674 that the colony fell under British rule. A separate branch of the King family that just recently settled in Arcadia established a new independent branch of the BAKA company was set up in the colony shortly after it was fully set up as a fully-fledged colony and the occupation ceased. It has no formal governing powers, but it did not grow into influence until after recent reformations. The King family has a shadowy influence in the colony's affairs.
      • Lansenia: The colony was originally founded as a safehaven colony in 1565 for Azure Pilgrims, with the early name of "Plymouth", led by John(?) Mordue. At first, the faction ran into many issues, mainly trying to survive the winter. They were helped by a local tribesman nearby and the colony has just begun to become stabilized. Since then, the colony experienced great growth and expansion. In the present time, they became a hub for fishing and other coastal industries in the northern colonies.
      • Pendraconia: The colony was set up by William Penn in 1681, a colony splintered off from Elysia to become a haven for diverse beliefs, ranging from oppressed Catholics to Quakers. The Baskerville is the most powerful family in this colony, but considering the family has branches that served the King family (also the same ones that influences New York), the King family also has considerable influence in Pendraconia as well (especially the north). The colony is known for their friendliness towards the native tribes, specifically the Lenape and Nitanee. Their vast groundwork potential for farms, lumber, coalmines, and iron production are also not to be underestimated.
    • Elysian Commonwealth: 2,570K Elysian Commonwealth, also known as the southern Heartlands are colonies that were once part of the greater Elysian realm. Architecture there has been dated to as far back as the 1200s and 1300s, and more recent buildings has taken on a more "Neo-Byzantine" style once Elysia and its neighbors to the south has been gradually absorbed into the British sphere. Since then, their rapid expansion outwards has found a greater need for "unpaid labor", and by the 1700s the colonies in the Commonwealth has taken on a more agrarian lifestyle beyond the cities of the coastlines, with a fifth of the population being African "unpaid laborers" in hand. Cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton are considered the staple to the economy of the southern colonies. Many native tribes that were absorbed into these colonies (willingly) has been considered to be 'civilized', though has faced some discrimination and hostilities due to their mixed history with the old Greek settlers. However, much of the colonies located in this Commonwealth set an example for the rest of the colonies to follow due to being one of the first British colonies.
      • Elysia: the Realm of Marble and Wine, the origin of all Greeks in the New World. The colony has shown its earliest settlement in the early 1200s after the 4th Crusade. Ever since, it has became a hub of diverse beliefs, a mix of both Orthodox Christianity and cult Hellenism (paganism), while there were tensions between the two groups, they somehow get along (at least within the current borders of the Elysian colony). The colony has fields of tobacco and wine, and early permanent British settlement began in the 1561, with the establishment of Jamestown after a devastating Elysian War that started in 1553. Since then, the large state/colony of Elysia has been slowly chipped away to other newer states or colonies under the BFG company. Since the reformations, the Faber family became the most influential house in this place, supplanting the older Greek houses, with an industry and desire to travel west.
      • Laconia: Laconia was once a heavily divided history, with the Grand Duchy of Crotania long before that. On more recent maps, they are shown as a united place, and referred to as such. The colony has remnants of the Powhatans, though many more people are those who could trace their origins to Elysian settlers from the north. The Lloyd family, a powerful family with a military background, has taken up shop here after the Atouman Wars in Europe and quickly gained respect among the local population. The Trengouses also has some influence in a couple cities in this colony.
      • North Eldia: The old united Eldia colony had a long history of conflict in its pre-British years. Only had finally been united by its establishment as a colony under the control of the MOM company by the 1600s. The colony was split in 1705 and by the reformation, the MOM company was gradually supplanted by the local Kilmer and Trengouse families. There has also been a long time rivalry between the two families, as the Trengouse are coastal urban elites, trading fish and other seafoods. Meanwhile, the Kilmer family are more powerful in the countryside where the agrarian society resides, growing the standard cash crops.
      • South Eldia: The Realm of Summer and Indigo, the colony was established in 1705 after the Eldia colony was split by the British. The biggest production of this colony is its cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton. But the economy of indigo is almost exclusively in South Eldia. The Solheim family plantations are the leading producers of indigo and rice, dominating the flow of trade that comes in and out of South Eldia. Though, they merely have gotten a head start due to their rich and noble origins from Vestkyst. The colony seeks new frontiers with its colonial government having generally positive relations with the neighboring native states.
    • Catonzian Commonwealth: 1,140k. If one were to travel to the Catonzian Commonwealth, you would be amazed at the number of Hispanian, French, or "Native New-Worlders" inhabiting these parts. Though many of them remain separate, with many Natives being considered "second-class", but are still above "unpaid labor", with the exception of Cofitachequi. It is considered one of the more culturally distinct parts of the colonies as they are the most recent non-British entities to be influenced. Many older buildings in these colonies typically takes on a more Hispanian look. Like the neighboring Elysian Commonwealth to the north, the colonies of the deep south has been touched by a growing reliance on "unpaid labor". Their cash crops are mainly rice and cotton.
      • Cofitache: Cofitache, a land belonging to the people once known as the Cofitachequi, is dominated by Muskogean native culture. They are newest colony of the bunch and are still in development since its integration, but boasts plenty of settled places as well. Unlike most colonies, it already came with its own developed apparatus largely intact from its peaceful integration. Since then, many settlers poured across the border, but were mostly restricted to certain places to help keep the old native kingdom's integrity. The most influential family of the colony is the family of its native leader. Settler/colonist-wise, the Stonehart family has recently moved in and helped began economic development. The Stonehart family mainly came from the coastal cities along northern East Catonzia.
      • East Catonzia: (Rewritten) The history of Catonzia had been once a powerful state in the gulf before it became subjected to a colony. It was later ruled by the Hispanians through a combination of deals and conquests. In 1705, the colony was established as a split from the main state, as the British administration considered the territory too large to administer. The territory is the center of the rice trade of the colonies, as the experiment originated there. The Suazo family took up shop there, becoming a little more influential due to spearheading the spread of rice.
      • West Catonzia: In 1705, West Catonzia has an identity separate from East Catonzia. Most of West Catonzia was not originally part of Osnerol, the original exonym to the region given by the conquering Hispanians. Therefore, most of West Catonzia is filled by Hispanian, French, and British colonists. The Emanuel family is the most popular one in the region, serving as its governors as recently as the start of the 18th century.
    • Atlantean Commonwealth?: 85k.
      • Bahamas: Once known a New Valcanor, the island was acquired from the war with Hispania, the same one where the British sunk the Hispanian Armada.
      • Belize (Honduras): Acquired after the League Wars from Iberia/Hispania. They are known for their timber.
      • Mosquito Coast: Acquired after the League Wars from Iberia/Hispania. They are known for their timber, like their northern counterpart.
      • Virgin Islands (Shattered Isles): Nothing happens in the Virgin Islands.
    • Other: 25k. Those who are not under a Commonwealth
      • British Amazon: The lands here are remnants of a long struggle to keep it, after an uprising of native tribes of the Amazons has pushed the British to the shores. Many veterans were produced from this war that lasted for decades and many generations. Only bases on their islands are left standing.
      • British Falklands: Discovered a long time ago, though to the British its by Captain Drake, they are the most inhabited colony outside of the commonwealths.
      • British Galapagos? N/A
      • British Hudson Bay: Settlers from the great White North, roughly around OTL Hudson Bay. 10k+
      • British Novus Arcadia: A settlemen from OTL Seattle.
  • Military Most of the colonial military of the colonies are currently directly controlled by the British. But since the Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, troops are being slowly pulled out in favor of local militias. The Commonwealths are formed to help provide each other economic and military support in times of crisis as a result of this pull out.

  • Diplomacy:
  • Events;
    • Check "Self-Enlightenment and Governance" and the "Commonwealth" Acts under "Government"
    • Check Diplomacy.
      • Ani'ku'sa: To help provide a check to the power of the Yenreshkanaan up north, we wish to back any sort of Pro-British group in the land. Any group that takes power there should be crowned 'Emperor' or 'King' of the Cherokee (as the Ani'ku'sa are Cherokees) in exchange for unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • Creation of the Allied Reserve Territories plan (ongoing) The ever increasing threat of the Yenreshkanaan Empire along the western frontiers of the Midland and Elysian Commonwealth has increasingly became more concerning. But there is hope, following the question of westward diplomacy by the Catonzia and Elysia Commonwealths, they sent a certain expedition led by a character named Elijah Suazo and Alexander Kennaugh to negotiate an arrangement with any Pro-British Ani'ku'sa groups to take power in exchange for providing support for the unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • Rise of the Arcadian Sentinels (and Minutemen): The new war that erupted in the colonies has developed concern against the various native groups along the frontier that would be potentially hostile to the settlers, the colonists themselves also feared French raids along the settlements. The Sentinels, a military order dedicated to protecting and guarding the frontiers, has seen skyrocketing memberships. George Washington can be seen amongst the members, though he joined a few years earlier in 1751. Colonists who did not join the Sentinels would instead form their own local militias to help serve community interests and protection, this results in the rise in the early known minutemen - ready at a minute's notice.
    • TL;DR:
      • British Hudson Bay will attempt to expand along the northern coastlines, a thing that has been lagging for decades.
      • Establishment of Novus Arcadia (OTL Seattle, working with Albion)
      • Skirmish in Avoyelle, occasional naval battles.
      • Forces under Colonel George Washington and General Wilhelm Schaefer moved into the frontier to capture French forts.
      • Closing of the Seven Years war, acquisition of territories west of the Appalachian mountains.

Turn XXXIII: 1762-1764:


Mod Events

  • Atmosphere of Venus:The speculation of Venus possibly having an atmosphere was widely expected even before the transit of 1761. However, few if any seem to have predicted that it might be possible to actually detect it during the transit. In the late 1600s, the transit was calculated to be in 1761 by an outstanding man named Edmond Halley in a paper published in the late 1600s and early 1700s. He died in 1742, before he can witness his calculations to be correct.  However his papers sparked a global collaborative effort by individual scientists and astronomers from many different nations to go on expeditions to many parts of the world to better triangulate and calculate the exact position and moment. The event had occurred, observed, and passed. The actual discovery of the atmosphere on Venus has hypothesized by an Varangian Astronomer on the basis of his observation of the transit of Venus of 1761. He published his findings in 1762 after working with mathematicians, estimating that another transit may occur in a few years or so for any other observers out there to confirm and pursue this as well
  • The Gilded Empress [2]: With the death of Abylai Soikkola in January of 1762, the 24 year old Charles Peter Ulrich ascended to the Varangian throne. That same year, he converted to Eastern Orthodoxy, and assumed the name Pietar III Karlopoika Kansainseppä. In addition, he was given the title Soikkolan Valitud, later made a mandatory part of his name. These attempts at 'Varangianizing' the foreign ruler, however, fell flat on the nobility, who harbored an intense distaste for the Emperor. The emperor himself showed no real interest in appearing 'Varangian', refusing to adopt the customs or language of any language in the area. Immediately after his coronation, he began furiously passing new legislation to bring Varangia more ideologically in line with western europe, which to many, was a betrayal of the native Varangian systems of feudal quasi-technocracy that Varangia was essentially built by. Worst of all, Peter organized a maritime invasion of Vesnia on behalf of Saxony, something which although fairly successful, drew Varangia closer to Avaria and was geopolitically pretty useless.<p> Peter's reign, however, was put to a close in June of 1762, after two troops of palace guards extrajudicially arrested the Emperor on behalf of Catherine, his wife. Catherine had been much more popular amongst the Varangian nobility, due to the result of her natural charisma and deep interest in Keisaria culture, to the point that many had wished for her to be empress since the day of Peter's coronation. The couped Peter was transported to a small town along the Volga, where he was locked in a small mansion and put under house arrest. Though he was not dead, and still had some supporters, his tale - in effect, had ended. In his place was Catherine, and her reign would soon truly put Varangia on the world stage.
  • Conclusion of the Seven Years War: Around this time, the Seven Years War concludes suffering significant losses. (Mods: Event may be modified or removed in the future, this is just a placeholder just incase).

British Western Territories | Albionite New World Colonies

  • Government: Due to reformations dating back to 1717 (Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, the Commonwealth Act), the British territories in the Western Hemisphere has gradually drifted into a sort of self-governance made up of 'colonies', some of which were once protectorates. In the face of the native threat, many colonies has turned to being organized into commonwealths, an organization of neighboring colonies for the purpose of promoting their own economic and military protection. Each commonwealth has their own informal 'council', they rarely meet unless for group decisions in the event of an emergency. Even while they are indirectly controlled or influenced by companies from their mother country, their influence waned over the colonies. As such, many once local companies, led by powerful families that originated from or based in the New World, has quickly grown enough to be able to have influence on par with the "motherland" companies.
  • Commonwealths & Colonies (w/ Population): 8,780M Total. (Sudden large jump is due to acquisitions from the recent war. See below.) With the establishment of the Commonwealths, there has been a more accurate census for the population of each colony, which turned out to be larger than previously recorded. One of the many reasons was due to the records only showing subjects from Britain themselves and not other places such as the Germanic states, France, or Hispania. Of the total ethnicities, only almost a fifth are descendants from British settlers. But all colonists would consider themselves subjects of Albion. The number of "unpaid labor" is around 650k, mostly in Elysia and Catonzia Commonwealths.
    • Vinland Commonwealth: 2,140k. The Vinland Commonwealth, once the kingdom of Vinland that ruled over the northern part of the continent, they have a long history of brutal conflict and division. It was not until the arrival of the British that things have rapidly calmed down. The Vinland colonies eventually fell under the influence of Albion and were naturally divided up by their own accord, but a significant amount of customs still survive (like Odinism). They experience greater autonomy over other colonies, as unlike others they peacefully and willingly joined. The colony has strong Norse influence, but in recent times became more "British" as a diverse range of settlers came rolling in. This is also in part due to the slower population growth due to emigration to other colonies, only other settlers would stunt the decline. However, half of the Vinland colonies fell under the influence of other families.
      • Agatha: The Realm of Frost and snowy Homesteads is founded and integrated as a fully fledged British colony by 1643. The Schaefer family recently established themselves here, from the German states. They easily established themselves as popular within the Agatha Militiamen.
      • Asturia: Once known as Asturgatan, the British colony was founded in 1643 and has strong Odinist roots. They have one of the longest histories compared to the other colonies, with the exception of Belamane.
      • Belamach (Belamane): The beating heart of the old Vinland realm and Odinism in Arcadia, it mainly centers itself on the edges of the (OTL) St. Lawrence river. It became integrated up as an official British colony by 1643.
      • Culland: While established as a colony like its neighbors in 1643, they actually owned a small part of its modern form when it was first created. It was not only until a couple decades later that the land that belonged to the tribes were gradually integrated into the colony. The Owens family, descendants of Erin Owens, became an influential family in this place. They led the expansion and development of the land over generations.
    • Midland Commonwealth: 1,160k. The Midland Commonwealth, also known as the northern Heartlands, is the heartland of recent European settlement in the colonies, with the colonies in the Commonwealth typically covered with more modern architecture dating to the Enlightenment Era. Although Deasaheim (or Desaham) and New York has non-British origins, their populations are quickly outnumbered by settlers coming from different parts of Europe. The Midlands are also the economic center of the colonies north of Elysia, and has quickly grown to rival their neighbors to the south in terms of trade, setting up future cultural and economic boundaries. They are experiencing the highest rapid growth over the other commonwealths around this time.
      • Deasaheim (Desaham): Early history of the former Norse colony dates back hundreds of years before the arrival of the British, it was not until the early 1510s that the region truly took shape, taking its name off of the city "Deasaheim." The British wouldn't start slowly absorbing and establish it as a colony until the late 1630s. By 1645, it has been fully established as a fully-fledged colony. Unlike most other colonies, the colony was populated by a secondary wave of immigrants who came from other colonies instead of those who migrated directly from Europe. In the late 1600s, the Hammet family, the most influential family in the colony, moved from Pendraconia to establish a settlement called Trentowne. It became a center hub for many settlers from Pendraconia to go to, and serves as a gateway for immigration into the colony. Natural resources in the colony included agricultural land, forests (timber), iron ore, coal, and furs. Major exports from the colony included livestock, rice, wheat, indigo, rice, grain and other agricultural products.
      • New York: Originally founded as a Dutch colony in the early 1600s, "New Netherlands" was birthed from blood and fire. They experienced rapid expansion after conquering all hostile tribes from all sides. It was not until 1674 that the colony fell under British rule. A separate branch of the King family that just recently settled in Arcadia established a new independent branch of the BAKA company was set up in the colony shortly after it was fully set up as a fully-fledged colony and the occupation ceased. It has no formal governing powers, but it did not grow into influence until after recent reformations. The King family has a shadowy influence in the colony's affairs.
      • Lansenia: The colony was originally founded as a safehaven colony in 1565 for Azure Pilgrims, with the early name of "Plymouth", led by John(?) Mordue. At first, the faction ran into many issues, mainly trying to survive the winter. They were helped by a local tribesman nearby and the colony has just begun to become stabilized. Since then, the colony experienced great growth and expansion. In the present time, they became a hub for fishing and other coastal industries in the northern colonies.
      • Pendraconia: The colony was set up by William Penn in 1681, a colony splintered off from Elysia to become a haven for diverse beliefs, ranging from oppressed Catholics to Quakers. The Baskerville is the most powerful family in this colony, but considering the family has branches that served the King family (also the same ones that influences New York), the King family also has considerable influence in Pendraconia as well (especially the north). The colony is known for their friendliness towards the native tribes, specifically the Lenape and Nitanee. Their vast groundwork potential for farms, lumber, coalmines, and iron production are also not to be underestimated.
    • Elysian Commonwealth: 2,550K Elysian Commonwealth, also known as the southern Heartlands are colonies that were once part of the greater Elysian realm. Architecture there has been dated to as far back as the 1200s and 1300s, and more recent buildings has taken on a more "Neo-Byzantine" style once Elysia and its neighbors to the south has been gradually absorbed into the British sphere. Since then, their rapid expansion outwards has found a greater need for "unpaid labor", and by the 1700s the colonies in the Commonwealth has taken on a more agrarian lifestyle beyond the cities of the coastlines, with a fifth of the population being African "unpaid laborers" in hand. Cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton are considered the staple to the economy of the southern colonies. Many native tribes that were absorbed into these colonies (willingly) has been considered to be 'civilized', though has faced some discrimination and hostilities due to their mixed history with the old Greek settlers. However, much of the colonies located in this Commonwealth set an example for the rest of the colonies to follow due to being one of the first British colonies.
      • Elysia: the Realm of Marble and Wine, the origin of all Greeks in the New World. The colony has shown its earliest settlement in the early 1200s after the 4th Crusade. Ever since, it has became a hub of diverse beliefs, a mix of both Orthodox Christianity and cult Hellenism (paganism), while there were tensions between the two groups, they somehow get along (at least within the current borders of the Elysian colony). The colony has fields of tobacco and wine, and early permanent British settlement began in the 1561, with the establishment of Jamestown after a devastating Elysian War that started in 1553. Since then, the large state/colony of Elysia has been slowly chipped away to other newer states or colonies under the BFG company. Since the reformations, the Faber family became the most influential house in this place, supplanting the older Greek houses, with an industry and desire to travel west.
      • Laconia: Laconia was once a heavily divided history, with the Grand Duchy of Crotania long before that. On more recent maps, they are shown as a united place, and referred to as such. The colony has remnants of the Powhatans, though many more people are those who could trace their origins to Elysian settlers from the north. The Lloyd family, a powerful family with a military background, has taken up shop here after the Atouman Wars in Europe and quickly gained respect among the local population. The Trengouses also has some influence in a couple cities in this colony.
      • North Eldia: The old united Eldia colony had a long history of conflict in its pre-British years. Only had finally been united by its establishment as a colony under the control of the MOM company by the 1600s. The colony was split in 1705 and by the reformation, the MOM company was gradually supplanted by the local Kilmer and Trengouse families. There has also been a long time rivalry between the two families, as the Trengouse are coastal urban elites, trading fish and other seafoods. Meanwhile, the Kilmer family are more powerful in the countryside where the agrarian society resides, growing the standard cash crops.
      • South Eldia: The Realm of Summer and Indigo, the colony was established in 1705 after the Eldia colony was split by the British. The biggest production of this colony is its cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton. But the economy of indigo is almost exclusively in South Eldia. The Solheim family plantations are the leading producers of indigo and rice, dominating the flow of trade that comes in and out of South Eldia. Though, they merely have gotten a head start due to their rich and noble origins from Vestkyst. The colony seeks new frontiers with its colonial government having generally positive relations with the neighboring native states.
    • Catonzian Commonwealth: 1,150k. If one were to travel to the Catonzian Commonwealth, you would be amazed at the number of Hispanian, French, or "Native New-Worlders" inhabiting these parts. Though many of them remain separate, with many Natives being considered "second-class", but are still above "unpaid labor", with the exception of Cofitachequi. It is considered one of the more culturally distinct parts of the colonies as they are the most recent non-British entities to be influenced. Many older buildings in these colonies typically takes on a more Hispanian look. Like the neighboring Elysian Commonwealth to the north, the colonies of the deep south has been touched by a growing reliance on "unpaid labor". Their cash crops are mainly rice and cotton.
      • Cofitache: Cofitache, a land belonging to the people once known as the Cofitachequi, is dominated by Muskogean native culture. They are newest colony of the bunch and are still in development since its integration, but boasts plenty of settled places as well. Unlike most colonies, it already came with its own developed apparatus largely intact from its peaceful integration. Since then, many settlers poured across the border, but were mostly restricted to certain places to help keep the old native kingdom's integrity. The most influential family of the colony is the family of its native leader. Settler/colonist-wise, the Stonehart family has recently moved in and helped began economic development. The Stonehart family mainly came from the coastal cities along northern East Catonzia.
      • East Catonzia: (Rewritten) The history of Catonzia had been once a powerful state in the gulf before it became subjected to a colony. It was later ruled by the Hispanians through a combination of deals and conquests. In 1705, the colony was established as a split from the main state, as the British administration considered the territory too large to administer. The territory is the center of the rice trade of the colonies, as the experiment originated there. The Suazo family took up shop there, becoming a little more influential due to spearheading the spread of rice.
      • West Catonzia: In 1705, West Catonzia has an identity separate from East Catonzia. Most of West Catonzia was not originally part of Osnerol, the original exonym to the region given by the conquering Hispanians. Therefore, most of West Catonzia is filled by Hispanian, French, and British colonists. The Emanuel family is the most popular one in the region, serving as its governors as recently as the start of the 18th century.
    • Atlantean Commonwealth?: 85k.
      • Bahamas: Once known a New Valcanor, the island was acquired from the war with Hispania, the same one where the British sunk the Hispanian Armada.
      • Belize (Honduras): Acquired after the League Wars from Iberia/Hispania. They are known for their timber.

      • Virgin Islands (Shattered Isles): Nothing happens in the Virgin Islands.
    • Other: 1,025k. Those who are not under a Commonwealth
      • British Amazon: The lands here are remnants of a long struggle to keep it, after an uprising of native tribes of the Amazons has pushed the British to the shores. Many veterans were produced from this war that lasted for decades and many generations. Only bases on their islands are left standing.
      • British Falklands: Discovered a long time ago, though to the British its by Captain Drake, they are the most inhabited colony outside of the commonwealths.
      • British Galapagos? N/A
      • British Hudson Bay: Settlers from the great White North, roughly around OTL Hudson Bay. 15k+
      • British Laurentia: Acquired from Occitan/France as a result of the Seven Years War in 1763. 200k+ (or 215k+)
      • British Erie (West Yenreshkanaan): 800k
      • Allied Reserve Territories: Unknown
      • British Novus Arcadia: A settlement from OTL Seattle.
  • Military Most of the colonial military of the colonies are currently directly controlled by the British. But since the Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, troops are being slowly pulled out in favor of local militias. The Commonwealths are formed to help provide each other economic and military support in times of crisis as a result of this pull out.

  • Diplomacy:
  • Events;
    • Check "Self-Enlightenment and Governance" and the "Commonwealth" Acts under "Government"
    • Check Diplomacy.
      • Ani'ku'sa: To help provide a check to the power of the Yenreshkanaan up north, we wish to back any sort of Pro-British group in the land. Any group that takes power there should be crowned 'Emperor' or 'King' of the Cherokee (as the Ani'ku'sa are Cherokees) in exchange for unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • Creation of the Allied Reserve Territories plan (ongoing) The ever increasing threat of the Yenreshkanaan Empire along the western frontiers of the Midland and Elysian Commonwealth has increasingly became more concerning. But there is hope, following the question of westward diplomacy by the Catonzia and Elysia Commonwealths, they sent a certain expedition led by a character named Elijah Suazo and Alexander Kennaugh to negotiate an arrangement with any Pro-British Ani'ku'sa groups to take power in exchange for providing support for the unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • Rise of the Arcadian Sentinels (and Minutemen): The new war that erupted in the colonies has developed concern against the various native groups along the frontier that would be potentially hostile to the settlers, the colonists themselves also feared French raids along the settlements. The Sentinels, a military order dedicated to protecting and guarding the frontiers, has seen skyrocketing memberships. George Washington can be seen amongst the members, though he joined a few years earlier in 1751. Colonists who did not join the Sentinels would instead form their own local militias to help serve community interests and protection, this results in the rise in the early known minutemen - ready at a minute's notice.
    • TL;DR:
      • British Hudson Bay will attempt to expand along the northern coastlines, a thing that has been lagging for decades.
      • Establishment of Novus Arcadia (OTL Seattle, working with Albion)
      • Forces under Colonel George Washington and General Wilhelm Schaefer moved into the frontier to capture French forts.
      • Closing of the Six Years war, acquisition of territories west of the Appalachian mountains. Laurentia is now part of the colonies, though it is under military occupation.

Most of the members of the parliament that are peasants belong to this party which is primarily agrarian and is also considered protectionist. Also it advocates for christians interests and it is considered a francophile party as it wants to counter what they call “the Atouman threat”. They are neutral to the current political situation.
    • Reform Party: Established in 1750 the reform party is primarily the party of the bourgeois. The party advocates for free trade and is considered pro-enlightened absolutism. The reform party has a belief in pan-romanism and closer ties with those they believe are the cultural successors of Rome. They are considered anti-clerical and expansionist.
    • Church Party: The church party established in 1747 is the primary party of the clergy, mostly catholic clergy and it advocates for political catholicism and is considered to be anti-arzahmist. It is also an anti-absolutism party. They believe in closer relations with the Holy See.

  • Diplomacy:
  • Events:
  • Crazy mob: A group of people went completely mad during a protest outside a bakery claiming that the owner is a vampire and has mixed blood with dough to make his cakes. The mob would try to storm the bakey in the process the baker disappeared. The mob wouldn’t stop razing the place until guards arrived by that time any evidence if there was any was destroyed by the looters.
  • Death of Mazzini: One of our greatest thinkers Mazzini has unfortunately died by natural causes. He died in 1764 at the age of 88 and 25 days. His last book was named “How to Properly Eat A Sandwich” of course the government forced it to be published anonymously because it is very important that Mazzini isn’t portrayed as insane.
  • Funeral of Mazzini: The funeral of one of the most controversial and important thinkers in modern Venetian history was divided. Of course the peasants didn’t care so much about that. Meanwhile the clergy, saddened by his death, clearly isn’t fond of him nor his funeral. Few to none aristocrats liked him and most wouldn’t even want to show up to his funeral. Thinkers, authors, philosophers and the bourgeois would show up in large numbers attending his funeral. Since Mazzini by them is considered one of the greatest people in Venetian history, they really hope to continue his legacy even though it starts to look like it could be hard on all fronts after his death. Our new Archbishop Luigi Gioanni has claimed that when time is right (meaning enough time since Mazzini died not wanting to dishonor a recently deceased man) he is going to unleash unpleasant news to the world claiming to have evidence of the mental well being of Mazzini. (keeps adding my last paragraphs two times for no reason lol)

Wars and Conflicts

  • Aftermath of the Seven Years’ War: See below
  • North America: British companies begin to exert control over regions with usage of promises of trade and prosperity
    • Though it should be said that some companies add in the risk of war if the British do not get their way in the matter, though others are far more friendly with their actions.
    • Hudson Bay: Britain begins work on a drydock in the area, with the plans of turning the Hudson Bay into both a town for fisherman and shipbuilders.
  • Yolngu Australia and Novus Silundia: With the British firmly in control of the region, the new governor of the two provinces begins the process of integrating the area into the empire.
  • Jaisalmer: Upon becoming a protectorate of the British, the British East India company begin constructing British forts around the country to protect their new territory
    • The government of Jaisalmer has some British officials injected into the government body, but otherwise remains unchanged.
    • As long as Jaisalmar doesn’t mess with British interests, the British won’t mess with them
  • Nagasato: An insurgent force arises in British-owned Nagasato, resulting in both British and Yolngu forces being imported into the area to quash the uprising.

  • Roundtable Knights (Elite): 8,900
    • These are Britain’s elite forces. A rebirthed version sprouting from Artoria’s original group of holy knights, this force has never lost a battle, and has unwavering loyalty to the crown and the Order of the Roundtable, willing to fight to the death for the survival of the British Isles.
    • While most are able to fight, members of the Roundtable are encouraged to branch out into their own craft, such as pottery and sheepherding, with the idea that everyone should act like a Roundtable Knight and give their all into both their craft and their country.
    • The only way to become a Roundtable Knight is to be selected by an existing member of the group. Most knights tend to make apprentices out of those they recruit to the Roundtable, and generally, no one usually complains when a Roundtable Knight selects someone to join the ranks of the Roundtables. Depending on the country/chapter, one can also be appointed to the Roundtable by the crown.
    • In 1527, three factions were formed within the Roundtables
      • The Crimson Sun
      • The Azure Moon
      • The White Orchids
        • Renames themselves Orchid Heaven in 1542
      • With the victory of the Crimson Sun at the end of the conflict, things have settled down.
    • Modernization of 1602: Reforms the Roundtable Knights to act as elite units within the Army, as well as guards for Royalty.
      • In 1615, the London Guard is formed, to both protect the Royal Family, Parliament, and the citizens of the city as a police force, though will prioritize the protection of government personnel and property than that of the citizen

Notable Companies and Organizations


McCarthy Arms Company (MAC):


McCarthy Arms Company (MAC) is the main firearms and cannon manufacturer for the British Military. Though other smaller companies exist, none have the prestige nor manufacturing capabilities MAC has.


Produced models:

FL1610 “Wasp MkI” Flintlock Musket (1610)

  • The first musket in the series of muskets made in response to “Manufacture d'armes de Châtellerault” and their flintlock musket.
  • Hastily made, the musket has various issues, and has a higher-than-usual casualty rate among those who use it due to the tendency for the musket’s barrel to implode.
  • Due to this reputation, the musket was given an additional nickname: “Barrel of Surprises”

FL1610E1 “Wasp MkII” Flintlock Musket (1611)

  • A modified L1610 that doesn't implode (more than most muskets of the era).

FL1610E2 “Wasp MkIII” Flintlock musket (1612)

  •  The version of the musket that was used by the British Military when they joined the League Wars the same year.
  • This musket features a slightly redesigned barrel, slightly increasing the range and improving the reliability of the musket even more.

FL1610E3 “Wasp MkIV” Flintlock Musket (1614)

  • Essentially the Wasp MkIII, but its components are simplified a bit, allowing for easier production.

FL1616 “Honey MkI” Flintlock Musket (1616)

  • A modified version of the Wasp MkIV for use in hunting.
    • Essentially a simplified version of the Wasp MkIV for commercial purchase
  • Also becomes the model of musket that was exported to allies during the League Wars

FL1610E4 “Wasp MkV” Flintlock Musket (1619)

  • A version of the Wasp MkIV that is made from Yolngu steel, giving the musket more durability

FL1616E1 “Honey MkII” Flintlock Musket (1621)

  • An improved version of the Honey MkI, taking feedback from its users when making said improvements.

FL1625 “Hornet MkI” Flintlock Musket (1625)

  • The successor to the Wasp series of muskets, featuring a slightly simplified design for the firing mechanism, allowing for easier construction of the musket, though early versions of the musket has issues due to kinks that weren’t figured out (though not as bad as was seen on the first Wasp muskets)

FL1625E1 “Hornet MkII” Flintlock Musket (1626)

  • Sent into the field in late 1626, the musket fixes the issues seen in the Hornet MkI.

FL1616E2 “Honey MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1627)

  • An improvement over the Honey MkII that features some improvements that were seen on the Hornet-series of muskets.

FL1625E2 “Hornet MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1632)

  • An improved version of the Hornet MkII, and is the primary musket used by the BMAC Company in its early years.

FL1636 “Hornet 2 MkI” Flintlock Musket (1636)

  • Originally just a simple upgrade, the Hornet 2 musket had so many improvements made to it that the company reclassified it as its own series of muskets.
  • Included in the many changes made is the narrower barrel. Though the bullets are smaller, due to a smaller round being used, the bullets are faster, have longer ranges, slightly faster reload, and are marginally more accurate than the original version of the Hornet.
  • Though the musket doesn’t have as good of a stopping power, its improvements arguably offset this weakness.

FL1636E1 “Hornet 2 MkII” Flintlock Musket (1642)

  • Modifications related to its reliability in hot, humid regions are added to the musket.
  • In addition, this is the first musket (used by the British) that was able to mount a bayonet.

XRS1652 “Thunderer” Experimental Revolving Sidearm (1652)

  • An experimental 3-shot revolver produced in extremely few quantities (around 56 or so)
  • The idea is for rounds to be pre-loaded into the revolving barrel of the pistol, which is locked in place by three pins when firing. Once a bullet is expended, the user delaches the pins and manually rotates the barrel before locking it back in place. This process is tedious and doesn’t give the gun that much of an advantage over normal conventional pistols on account of the cumbersome barrel, in addition to the pistol’s unreliability (even by standards of the time)

FL1656 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1656)

  • The third version of the Hornet musket, which took the FL1636E1 model of musket and made the musket easier to produce. Still features the capability for using a bayonet that is secured under the barrel of the musket from the FL1636E1.

FL1656-EXP “Honey 2” Flintlock Musket (1657)

  • Essentially an FL1636E1 musket that is cailbered in the conventional ammo size used by most nations. Also features the capability for usage of a plug bayonet.
  • Since both this musket and the “Hornet 3” musket have the same catalog name, the “Honey 2” was given the -EXP notation at the end to distinguish it as the export musket.

FS1659 “Thunderer 2” Flintlock Sidearm (1659)

  • A non-revolver version of the XRS1652 musket. This sidearm is provided both to officers and cavalry units in the military and only in small numbers.

FL1656E1 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1666)

  • Slight improvement to the Hornet 3 that was used in the Anglo-Dutch War. The gun features a slight improvement to its accuracy as well as a better mechanism for the bayonet, which is now custom-built for the musket itself and can double as a knife when necessary.

FL1686 “Super Hornet” MkI Flintlock Musket

  • A modernized version of the Hornet 3 Musket. This version of the musket is even easier to maintain and manufacture than the Hornet 3.

FL1686E1 “Super Hornet” MkII Flintlock Musket (1702)

  • Updated version of first version of the Super Hornet that has slightly increased range and versatility.

FL1686E2 “Super Hornet” MkIII Flintlock Musket (1712)

  • Small changes are made to increase the reliability of the weapon

FL1686E3 “Super Hornet” MkIV Flintlock Musket (1724)

  • Further upgrade to the Super Hornet, increasing range slightly.

PC1686E4 “Super Hornet” MkV Percussion Cap Musket (1729)

  • A modification of the Super Hornet that comes with a percussion-cap, increasing the effectiveness and reliability of British weapons, especially in poor weather.
  • Done while development of a true successor is in the works
  • In addition, upgrade kits were exported across the country in order to upgrade the FL1686E3 to the E4 modification.

XPCBL1729 “Lightning Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1729)

  • The experimental rifle created by McCarthy Arms Company. Due to the nature of the components, the thought was to make an excellent weapon that could be used by the few rather than a mass-producible weapon that can be used by many.
  • The main feature of this weapon is the breech loading mechanism with the rifle, allowing for a faster reload than what can be seen with conventional muskets of the time.

PC1730 “BumbleBee” MkI Percussion Cap Musket (1730)

  • A rifle developed by the British following the acquisition of percussion-cap technology, the McCarthy Arms Company rushed to develop a percussion cap musket of their own, resulting in the Lightning Bee.
  • Though its early renditions had “teething issues”, these problems would be rectified in 1731.

PC1730E1 “BumbleBee” MkII Percussion Cap Musket (1731)

  • Models of the Lightning Bee MkI with many of the issues found in the MkI model ironed out

PCBL1729E1 “Lightning Bee” MkI Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1734)

  • The first production model of the Lightning Bee, though only produced in a few numbers.

PC1730E2 “BumbleBee” MkIII Percussion Cap Musket (1738)

  • More reliable version of the BumbleBee MkII. Also featured the capability to launch congreve rockets, though this variant is found in small numbers (PC1730E2-C)

XPCBL1742 “Rocket Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1742)

  • A “Lightning Bee” Rifle that is capable of mounting a congreve rocket that can be launched from the bayonet socket. A fuse is manually pit and the rocket is launched forward.
    • Due to the few number of rockets as well as the complexity of the breech loading mechanism, like the breechloading technology, only SPARTANS can be found with this weapon

PC1730E3 “BumbleBee” MkIV Percussion Cap Musket (1749)

  • Essentially the PC1730E2-C Musket that is more commonplace.

PC1751 “Hudson BumbleBee” MkI Percussion Cap Musket (1751)

  • A modification of the “BumbleBee MkIV” Musket that features a simpler firing mechanism leading to ease of manufacturing and maintenance.
  • Also named after “Sir Robert B Hudson”, an engineer within the MAC who perished in Galatoi as he was observing MAC muskets in-action.

PCBL1756 “R.L.B” MkI Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1756)

  • The Rocket Lightning Bee, abbreviated to “R.L.B”, is the culmination of the Lightning Bee and Rocket Bee, featuring the best features of both rifles while being easier to mass produce.

PCS1757 “Thunderer 3” Percussion-cap Sidearm (1757)

  • The first model of sidearm featured a percussion-cap, rather than a flintlock mechanism for firing the weapon.


MAC Cannons: MAC continues to produce MAC Cannons (McCarthy Arms in a variety of calibers and sizes, ranging from small 6 pound field cannons to 32 pound naval cannons. At least in Britain, McCarthy Industries has the monopoly on the firearms industry.

Produced models:

2-pounder “snub-nose” MAC Cannon (1608)

  • Created for usage on Vinland longboats, more to fire on smaller vessels than anything else
  • Can be argued that muskets would be more effective than these small peashooters, but the extra punch is helpful

6-pounder medium field MAC Cannon (1578)

  • The main cannon used by both the British Royal Army and Marine Corps.
  • Also used on British Carrier Vessels

9-pounder “tickler” MAC Cannon

  • The lightest cannon used on British Warships (excluding Carriers)

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1588)

  • The mainstay cannon of British Warships

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1641)

  • An updated version of the 16-pounder cannon.

32-pounder “long-nose” MAC Cannon (1603)

  • Heaviest cannon that the British used. Reserved for the largest of British vessels.


British Royal Train Department (BRTD): Established in 1759, this organization is tasked with developing the potential found with trains.

  • BLTS MkI: The British Locomotive Train System, or BLTS for short, is the company’s first attempt at making a train. Powered by coal, this train is relatively slow, slower than a horse even. However, the BLTS can put a heavier load than even two horses.
    • With this development in mind, the BRTD looks into creating a more powerful engine


Research and Development

  • The British Doctrine of Global Power (1743): As Britain expands throughout the world, questions are raised into how to protect British interests abroad. As such, the British decide on two things, which are enacted on immediately:
  1. Training of a local militia force that can hold down the fort; primarily only used in defensive situations, though can also participate as a reserve force to plug in holes and whatnot as necessary.
  2. Increase funding and the expansion of the British Marine Corps; these troops are going to be trained to be able to theoretically deploy anywhere in the world, and are to be recruited from every inch of the empire to allow the Marines to respond to any conflict anywhere at any time.
  • In addition, the British focus more of their efforts on their navy, since all of their territory is separated by the sea.
  • Outback Training
    • Due to the conflict in Africa beginning to heat up, troops are beginning to be trained in a similarly inhospitable area, in order to get troops accustomed to fighting in extremely arid regions such as British Galatoi
      • In 1757, the uprising in Nagasato was the baptism of fire for the program, showing the effectiveness of the program and a general expansion of the program.
  • Torpedo Technology
    • In Nagasato, old weapons from the 1400’s have been rediscovered. As such, the British look into ways of updating this technology.
      • Development is put into determining how to implement these torpedoes into British naval doctrine
  • Improved Transportation
    • Due to most British interests economically existing in Asia, British engineers begin looking into economical ways to cut down on the time it takes for goods to be transported
      • Canals: Within British rivers, canal technology is being developed by Bridgewaters Waterworks (a company that specializes in canal technology), as British cargo boats are able to penetrate deeper into the British mainland
        • Through the efforts of Bridgewaters Waterworks, internal highways of water are being constructed around the England sector of mainland England.
      • Steam: Through the power of steam, engineers and designers brainstorm ways to use steam (created from burning either charcoal, wood, or coal) to power devices.
        • At McCarthy Arms Company, some of the first steam-powered machines were implemented in small numbers for the manufacturing of MAC guns and cannons.
        • Trains: With the invention of the train, British Engineers look into the logistical benefits of the train.
          • Train engines begin to become more powerful, now able to carry light loads from point-to-point
          • Though still in its infancy, the potential of this invention could break logistical times in half

Diplomacy

  • Australia: Due to Anastasia King’s decree to unite Australia, tribes are forced to choose between aligning with the British or standing and fighting them.
    • Same to be said for those in Novus Silundia
  • Indian Nations: Seeing that the countries of India are friendly, the British East India Company reaches out to all the nations in the area, hoping to strengthen their ties with all nations and open up trade routes with all.
  • Jaisalmer: The British ask the government if it is possible for them to purchase a port city, or at least a location for British ships and merchants to operate out of.
    • In addition, Britain (through the McCarthy Arms Company) looks into local companies in the country in order to purchase them.
  • Matagaskar: Due to the Civil War that broke out, the governor of the island does two things in response:
  1. They reach out to whichever one of the organizations is located closest to the British town of Port Dolphin. The governor offers to supply them with British weaponry and support, if they are willing to cooperate
  2. Troops are requested to assist in keeping the peace (around Port Dolphin, at least)
  • Saxony: Though Britain is pulling out of the conflict, they still provide weapons to the Germans (partially since Britain doesn’t need so many guns as the country demilitarized)
  • Vijayanagara: Due to trading with locals of the region, British influence spreads through the area, though slowly.


Allies

  • Galatoi: Trading partner with the BAKA company.
  • Naranga: British ally on the Asian mainland.
  • Toyotomi Shogunate: British ally (through the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company) in Asian area.
  • Vestkyst: Norwegian allies in the North Sea. The oldest ally of Britain, harkening back to the British Empire’s founding.
  • Yolngu: The furthest of Britain’s allies, the island-continent has metals far better than those in the region. As such, the majority of the trade from the region primarily consists of metals.


Events

  • Seven Years’ War (Aftermath): Though emerging victorious (in a way), the British economy took a large hit. With a deficit in money present, taxes across the entire empire increases
    • Each region can determine how the taxes will be issued out, with the only criteria being that a certain amount of money is sent back to the British Government
    • Should be mentioned that due to the vibrant trade between Southeast Asia and Britain, taxes do not need to increase by too much
  • The Unification of the Land Down Under (WiP):
    • The British Empire seeks to establish a few more coastal towns to assist with moving resources around the country.
  • Expansion Beyond the Horizon:
    • Arcadian Colonies
      • The Northwest Trail: In an effort to try and create a safer (and shorter) route for supplies to travel to and from British Yolngu and British Nagasato, the BAKA Gaikokuhito and BFG Companies join forces to create a route that spans “from sea to shining sea”
        • The Beginning of a Vast Trail: In 1761, approval was given for the construction of a trail from Port Novus Arcadia.
          • The plan calls for various “pit stop” towns to be constructed along a pre-planned route
          • With the assistance of the Trailblazing duo from the half-decade prior, Okita Tsukasa and Maria “Trailblazer” Mitchell as diplomats, some tribes gave the British permission for construction of such “pit stop” towns
    • Galatoi: With the new territory, forts arte constructed throughout the newly acquired Galatoi lands, to prevent the Sokotoi from waltzing into Galatoi again.
    • India: The British East India Company hatches a plan to acquire more control over the continent
      • With the takeover of Gujarat, the British East India Company looks into establishing more trading ports in northern territories.
    • Yolngu
      • The combined efforts of Britain and Yolngu slowly spread throughout Australia, as the tribes of Australia became friendlier towards the two powers.
      • Outback Grenadiers: Due to the success seen when training marines, the army rallied for a similar program, which was granted in 1753.
      • Nova Silundia: Much like the mainland, the British wrestled control of the island, and was successfully achieved in 1749.

Famous Vessels


HMS Victory (15XX)

  • Laid down in 15XX and launched in 15XX, the HMS Victory is a 50-gun First-class Frigate.
  • The namesake of her class, HMS Victory was the first pride-and-joy of the Royal Navy.
  • Famously captained by Admiral Francis Drake, the ship would lead the British navy to victory when it defeated the Spanish Armada, directly leading to one of the major reasons why Britain won in the Anglo-Spanish War in the late 16th century.
  • From there, it would also see combat in the League Wars as it ensured that those opposing Britain felt the wrath of her powerful broadside.
  • Eventually, the ship was retired in 1647, where it was put into the reserve fleet as a training vessel for new sailors.


HMS Fortune’s Bounty (1626)

  • An Olive-class Multi-purpose Merchant Frigate given to the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company from the British government. Laid in 1624 and left on its maiden voyage in 1626, the ship would find itself under the ownership of Fortuna King, a woman well-known for her assistance in the Wu-Narangan War in 1633 when she was involved in both a trading run to Naranga in addition to the assassination of the Wu General in the region.
  • Though the ship would remain in East Asia for most of its life, it would also visit Britain and the Mediterranean Sea during its time afloat under the ownership of Fortuna.
  • In 1661, while returning to Britain from Yolngu, the ship encountered rough seas around the southernmost tip of South America. Though it survived, the ship was badly beaten, as it limped to the British outpost on the Falklands Island. From there, Fortuna and her crew hitched a ride on a vessel back to Britain, where she received permission from the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company to purchase a replacement vessel: the Fortune’s Bounty II.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1661


HMS Sovereign of the Seas (1637)

  • Laid down in 1634 and launched in 1637, this ship is essentially an engineer’s wet dream. Built “just because,” the ship has more than double the guns of the next largest ships (the Victory-class) and was also over double the size, this ship towered over anything the British would build for the next half-decade or so.
  • That being said, the ship was also ladened with issues, such as poor handling and the likes.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704 to be used in HMS Sovereign


HMS Fortune’s Bounty II (1662)

  • A 28-gun xebec ordered by Fortuna King.
    • Also was equipped with two hwachas for testing purposes
  • Saw effective use under Fortuna’s captainship.
  • Notable for the Battle of the Vestkyst Fjords (1667) as well as for its involvement with rescuing Duchess Anastasia during the Vestkyst Civil War (1666).
  • Given to Lumi when Fortuna passed.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704


HMS Warspite (1668)

  • A 64-gun ship-of-the-line that served as Fortuna King’s flagship during the Anglo-Dutch War
  • Led the British fleet to victory against the Dutch fleet in the sole naval engagement in the “European front”
  • Fate: ???

Turn XXXIII: 1764-1770

Mod events

  • Reconquest of Morea: In a swift campaign in 1764-65, the Atoumans retook Morea from Venetian hands following two sieges in Corinth and Mystras. Crete was also threatened but the local forces managed to stave off any attempt of a landing. With Morea back under their control, the region was brought under harsher rule, with those showing sympathy of Venetians or disobeying subjected to cruel punishments.
  • Itkonen Revolt: Seeing the situation in Greece, particularly Morea, were rife to conflict, Varangia sent one Admiral Itkonen to the peninsula to instigate a revolt against the Atoumans as part of a wider conflict between these two states. Despite many of the previously arranged resistance cells not revolting, and the Itkonen Revolt itself largely a military failure, it reached the intended effect of allowing Varangia to interfere in affairs concerning the Orthodox population of Rumelia, including the Greeks.
  • Last Pirate: As the battles that took over the Atlantic draws to a close in 1762, it left what's left of the hired privateers dissatisfied. Surprisingly enough, most of them, rather than returning to pirate life, chose to retire. However, there are still a few who were put out of work from the war, even worse that some merchants were greatly hurt from the conflict as well. Those very few banded together around a new leader, a descendant from Edward Teach (Blackbeard). Today he's known as the Jolly, a strange name but one that puts a person's guard down. It is similar to how some people may think of clowns, either silly or sinister. After a few raids, he settled into the last bastion where pirates could still wander freely; somewhere in a remote island off from the Bahamas. A group of hired privateers and other mercenaries are sent in after him to subdue and end piracy. Little did they know of the dangers of being trapped there.
  • The Eagle has Hatched: The recent big war has proven costly for the coffers of Britain. Their treasury has racked up a sizeable amount of debt they are looking to pay off very soon. The logical choice? Their colonies from around the world. Initially, the imposing of taxes has been largely ignored in the Arcadian colonies, while the British colonies in the East has been more respectful towards this new taxation (likely due to high military presence from the Australian conflict). However, the taxes put down in the mid-1760s has led to widespread colonial riots in 1765. Thankfully, this has been largely handled by the local authorities. But it was not until a couple years later that another wave of unrest has spawned. A colonial revolt happened in 1767 and lasted for a year, with major cities like New York, Elysiapolis, and New Glaemchester being most affected. This has led to an increased military presence in the colonies, with British troops stationed in almost every major city. In the Arcadian colonist view, it is like a parent who left suddenly returning to claim control and take away their hard earnings. The events that happened within the past 5 years has rocked the colonies, but relations between their mother country would come to a head in 1770. In New Glaemchester, a drunk mob began harrassing a young British private as she was patrolling near a pub, naturally her comrades came to help. The drunken mob has turned very aggressive, throwing snowballs and occasionally rocks at the soldiers. This attracted many witnesses, with a few either joining in or trying to diffuse the situation.  One rock has managed to hit the young British private, knocking her out. Seeing her bleeding head, the soldiers raised their guns at the mob and fired.
  • Dreamtime Nightmares (Part 4, finale): As the year hits 1766, the Aborgine Confederacy has found itself pushed away from the coast and whatever holdouts are left are in the wildlands deep within, otherwise known as the Outback. Once united in a cause against doom nearly a generation ago, now has evidently found itself in a war for survival by the time the war hits its 8th anniversary. Although many representatives of each group has been captured and were forced to surrender, the last holdout was in Tasmania. Tasmania has proven itself to be a strategic challenge as it is situated away from the mainland itself. Thanks to the assistance of specialized hunters (think an earliest version of commandos) and British SPARTANs to infiltrate, and capture the leaders themselves. The last of the leaders in the council of the confederacy by then has signed for peace at gunpoint, ending the war in the twilight months of 1766. Men who feared retribution has taken their clans and flee deep within the Outback and would later become nomadic marauders, their numbers dwindling year-by-year due to harsh desert conditions and difficulty of getting food to feed their entire family without someone starving. Save for the untamable lands in the Outback, Australia is now essentially dominated solely by the newly proclaimed Australian Commonwealth under Annaliese King by the time she retired in 1768. It consists of Yolngu, Yuggera, Eora, Noongar, and Tasmania. Nova Silundia (British New Zealand) would be administered by this Commonwealth for the time being.

Wars and Conflicts

  • North America: British companies begin to exert control over regions with usage of promises of trade and prosperity
    • Though it should be said that some companies add in the risk of war if the British do not get their way in the matter, though others are far more friendly with their actions.
    • Arcadian Colonies: With rising tensions, British troops are stationed in the territory to preserve the peace (since it was evident that local governors couldn’t do it)
  • Yolngu Australia and Novus Silundia: With the British firmly in control of the region, the new governor of the two provinces begins the process of integrating the area into the empire.
  • Jaisalmer: Upon becoming a protectorate of the British, the British East India company begin constructing British forts around the country to protect their new territory
    • The government of Jaisalmer has some British officials injected into the government body, but otherwise remains unchanged.
    • As long as Jaisalmar doesn’t mess with British interests, the British won’t mess with them
  • South Africa: As British control of the region expands, tensions begin to rise between the British and other powers in the region, due to the coal located to the north.

  • Roundtable Knights (Elite): 8,900
    • These are Britain’s elite forces. A rebirthed version sprouting from Artoria’s original group of holy knights, this force has never lost a battle, and has unwavering loyalty to the crown and the Order of the Roundtable, willing to fight to the death for the survival of the British Isles.
    • While most are able to fight, members of the Roundtable are encouraged to branch out into their own craft, such as pottery and sheepherding, with the idea that everyone should act like a Roundtable Knight and give their all into both their craft and their country.
    • The only way to become a Roundtable Knight is to be selected by an existing member of the group. Most knights tend to make apprentices out of those they recruit to the Roundtable, and generally, no one usually complains when a Roundtable Knight selects someone to join the ranks of the Roundtables. Depending on the country/chapter, one can also be appointed to the Roundtable by the crown.
    • In 1527, three factions were formed within the Roundtables
      • The Crimson Sun
      • The Azure Moon
      • The White Orchids
        • Renames themselves Orchid Heaven in 1542
      • With the victory of the Crimson Sun at the end of the conflict, things have settled down.
    • Modernization of 1602: Reforms the Roundtable Knights to act as elite units within the Army, as well as guards for Royalty.
      • In 1615, the London Guard is formed, to both protect the Royal Family, Parliament, and the citizens of the city as a police force, though will prioritize the protection of government personnel and property than that of the citizen

  • An improved version of the Honey MkI, taking feedback from its users when making said improvements.

FL1625 “Hornet MkI” Flintlock Musket (1625)

  • The successor to the Wasp series of muskets, featuring a slightly simplified design for the firing mechanism, allowing for easier construction of the musket, though early versions of the musket has issues due to kinks that weren’t figured out (though not as bad as was seen on the first Wasp muskets)

FL1625E1 “Hornet MkII” Flintlock Musket (1626)

  • Sent into the field in late 1626, the musket fixes the issues seen in the Hornet MkI.

FL1616E2 “Honey MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1627)

  • An improvement over the Honey MkII that features some improvements that were seen on the Hornet-series of muskets.

FL1625E2 “Hornet MkIII” Flintlock Musket (1632)

  • An improved version of the Hornet MkII, and is the primary musket used by the BMAC Company in its early years.

FL1636 “Hornet 2 MkI” Flintlock Musket (1636)

  • Originally just a simple upgrade, the Hornet 2 musket had so many improvements made to it that the company reclassified it as its own series of muskets.
  • Included in the many changes made is the narrower barrel. Though the bullets are smaller, due to a smaller round being used, the bullets are faster, have longer ranges, slightly faster reload, and are marginally more accurate than the original version of the Hornet.
  • Though the musket doesn’t have as good of a stopping power, its improvements arguably offset this weakness.

FL1636E1 “Hornet 2 MkII” Flintlock Musket (1642)

  • Modifications related to its reliability in hot, humid regions are added to the musket.
  • In addition, this is the first musket (used by the British) that was able to mount a bayonet.

XRS1652 “Thunderer” Experimental Revolving Sidearm (1652)

  • An experimental 3-shot revolver produced in extremely few quantities (around 56 or so)
  • The idea is for rounds to be pre-loaded into the revolving barrel of the pistol, which is locked in place by three pins when firing. Once a bullet is expended, the user delaches the pins and manually rotates the barrel before locking it back in place. This process is tedious and doesn’t give the gun that much of an advantage over normal conventional pistols on account of the cumbersome barrel, in addition to the pistol’s unreliability (even by standards of the time)

FL1656 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1656)

  • The third version of the Hornet musket, which took the FL1636E1 model of musket and made the musket easier to produce. Still features the capability for using a bayonet that is secured under the barrel of the musket from the FL1636E1.

FL1656-EXP “Honey 2” Flintlock Musket (1657)

  • Essentially an FL1636E1 musket that is cailbered in the conventional ammo size used by most nations. Also features the capability for usage of a plug bayonet.
  • Since both this musket and the “Hornet 3” musket have the same catalog name, the “Honey 2” was given the -EXP notation at the end to distinguish it as the export musket.

FS1659 “Thunderer 2” Flintlock Sidearm (1659)

  • A non-revolver version of the XRS1652 musket. This sidearm is provided both to officers and cavalry units in the military and only in small numbers.

FL1656E1 “Hornet 3” Flintlock Musket (1666)

  • Slight improvement to the Hornet 3 that was used in the Anglo-Dutch War. The gun features a slight improvement to its accuracy as well as a better mechanism for the bayonet, which is now custom-built for the musket itself and can double as a knife when necessary.

FL1686 “Super Hornet” MkI Flintlock Musket

  • A modernized version of the Hornet 3 Musket. This version of the musket is even easier to maintain and manufacture than the Hornet 3.

FL1686E1 “Super Hornet” MkII Flintlock Musket (1702)

  • Updated version of first version of the Super Hornet that has slightly increased range and versatility.

FL1686E2 “Super Hornet” MkIII Flintlock Musket (1712)

  • Small changes are made to increase the reliability of the weapon

FL1686E3 “Super Hornet” MkIV Flintlock Musket (1724)

  • Further upgrade to the Super Hornet, increasing range slightly.

PC1686E4 “Super Hornet” MkV Percussion Cap Musket (1729)

  • A modification of the Super Hornet that comes with a percussion-cap, increasing the effectiveness and reliability of British weapons, especially in poor weather.
  • Done while development of a true successor is in the works
  • In addition, upgrade kits were exported across the country in order to upgrade the FL1686E3 to the E4 modification.

XPCBL1729 “Lightning Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1729)

  • The experimental rifle created by McCarthy Arms Company. Due to the nature of the components, the thought was to make an excellent weapon that could be used by the few rather than a mass-producible weapon that can be used by many.
  • The main feature of this weapon is the breech loading mechanism with the rifle, allowing for a faster reload than what can be seen with conventional muskets of the time.

PC1730 “BumbleBee” MkI Percussion Cap Musket (1730)

  • A rifle developed by the British following the acquisition of percussion-cap technology, the McCarthy Arms Company rushed to develop a percussion cap musket of their own, resulting in the Lightning Bee.
  • Though its early renditions had “teething issues”, these problems would be rectified in 1731.

PC1730E1 “BumbleBee” MkII Percussion Cap Musket (1731)

  • Models of the Lightning Bee MkI with many of the issues found in the MkI model ironed out

PCBL1729E1 “Lightning Bee” MkI Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1734)

  • The first production model of the Lightning Bee, though only produced in a few numbers.

PC1730E2 “BumbleBee” MkIII Percussion Cap Musket (1738)

  • More reliable version of the BumbleBee MkII. Also featured the capability to launch congreve rockets, though this variant is found in small numbers (PC1730E2-C)

XPCBL1742 “Rocket Bee” Experimental Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1742)

  • A “Lightning Bee” Rifle that is capable of mounting a congreve rocket that can be launched from the bayonet socket. A fuse is manually pit and the rocket is launched forward.
    • Due to the few number of rockets as well as the complexity of the breech loading mechanism, like the breechloading technology, only SPARTANS can be found with this weapon

PC1730E3 “BumbleBee” MkIV Percussion Cap Musket (1749)

  • Essentially the PC1730E2-C Musket that is more commonplace.

PC1751 “Hudson BumbleBee” MkI Percussion Cap Musket (1751)

  • A modification of the “BumbleBee MkIV” Musket that features a simpler firing mechanism leading to ease of manufacturing and maintenance.
  • Also named after “Sir Robert B Hudson”, an engineer within the MAC who perished in Galatoi as he was observing MAC muskets in-action.

PCBL1756 “R.L.B” MkI Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1756)

  • The Rocket Lightning Bee, abbreviated to “R.L.B”, is the culmination of the Lightning Bee and Rocket Bee, featuring the best features of both rifles while being easier to mass produce.

PCS1757 “Thunderer 3” Percussion-cap Sidearm (1757)

  • The first model of sidearm featured a percussion-cap, rather than a flintlock mechanism for firing the weapon.

PCBL1756E1 “R.L.B” MkII Percussion Cap Breechloading Rifle (1764)

  • An upgraded version of the R.L.B MkI and the main rifle used by British forces in the First American War for Independence. This model fixes some kinks found when employed in the Seven Years’ War (mainly reliability issues)


MAC Cannons: MAC continues to produce MAC Cannons (McCarthy Arms in a variety of calibers and sizes, ranging from small 6 pound field cannons to 32 pound naval cannons. At least in Britain, McCarthy Industries has the monopoly on the firearms industry.

Produced models:

2-pounder “snub-nose” MAC Cannon (1608)

  • Created for usage on Vinland longboats, more to fire on smaller vessels than anything else
  • Can be argued that muskets would be more effective than these small peashooters, but the extra punch is helpful

6-pounder medium field MAC Cannon (1578)

  • The main cannon used by both the British Royal Army and Marine Corps.
  • Also used on British Carrier Vessels

9-pounder “tickler” MAC Cannon

  • The lightest cannon used on British Warships (excluding Carriers)

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1588)

  • The mainstay cannon of British Warships

16-pounder MAC Cannon (1641)

  • An updated version of the 16-pounder cannon.

32-pounder “long-nose” MAC Cannon (1603)

  • Heaviest cannon that the British used. Reserved for the largest of British vessels.


British Royal Train Department (BRTD): Established in 1759, this organization is tasked with developing the potential found with trains.

  • Important People:
    • James Watt: A Scottish Engineer who created the Steam Engine. Though not a direct employee of the BRTD, he does work closely with BRTD on developing steam engines for the company’s trains.
  • Trains:
  • BLTS MkI (1761): The British Locomotive Train System, or BLTS for short, is the company’s first attempt at making a train. Powered by coal, this train is relatively slow, slower than a horse even. However, the BLTS can put a heavier load than even two horses could.
    • With this development in mind, BRTD looks into creating a more powerful engine
  • BLTS MkII (1763): Taking the MkI prototype, the engineers at BRTD install a stronger engine. Though not much of an improvement over the previous engine, when unencumbered, the engine’s performance is improved nonetheless.
  • BLTS MkIII (1766): Unlike the MkII, the MkIII is a new train. Though the original design is based on the BLTS MkI, the train is optimized to house the new “Cloudmaker” engine. This engine allows the BLTS MkIII to be on-par with the average horse. However, the MkIII is prone to breakdowns, so more refinements are required.
    • Should be noted that around this time, the term “horsepower” was invented by James Watt to compare his steam engines to the work a draft horse can produce.
  • “Willy” (1767): Though the name is silly, Willy is a significant improvement over the BLTS-series of trains up to this point. Based on the BLTS MkIII, Willy features a larger carrying capacity for coal, addressing the issue of range. With a large enough supply of coal, Willy was able to travel further than any train prior.
    • Additionally, the “Cloudmaker” engine onboard Willy was modified, featuring less wastage in the steam produced, allowing the “Cloudmaker” to produce more power than the stock variant of the engine.


Research and Development

  • The British Doctrine of Global Power (1743): As Britain expands throughout the world, questions are raised into how to protect British interests abroad. As such, the British decide on two things, which are enacted on immediately:
  1. Training of a local militia force that can hold down the fort; primarily only used in defensive situations, though can also participate as a reserve force to plug in holes and whatnot as necessary.
  2. Increase funding and the expansion of the British Marine Corps; these troops are going to be trained to be able to theoretically deploy anywhere in the world, and are to be recruited from every inch of the empire to allow the Marines to respond to any conflict anywhere at any time.
  • In addition, the British focus more of their efforts on their navy, since all of their territory is separated by the sea.
  • Outback Training
    • Due to the conflict in Africa beginning to heat up, troops are beginning to be trained in a similarly inhospitable area, in order to get troops accustomed to fighting in extremely arid regions such as British Galatoi
      • In 1757, the uprising in Nagasato was the baptism of fire for the program, showing the effectiveness of the program and a general expansion of the program.
    • YNSAC Program: In 1766, local troops from Yolngu and Novus Silundia are put into the Outback Training program, eventually grouped into the Yolngu-Novus Silundia Army Corps, or YNSAC for short
  • Torpedo Technology
    • In Nagasato, old weapons from the 1400’s have been rediscovered. As such, the British look into ways of updating this technology.
      • Development is put into determining how to implement these torpedoes into British naval doctrine
  • Improved Transportation
    • Due to most British interests economically existing in Asia, British engineers begin looking into economical ways to cut down on the time it takes for goods to be transported
      • Canals: Within British rivers, canal technology is being developed by Bridgewaters Waterworks (a company that specializes in canal technology), as British cargo boats are able to penetrate deeper into the British mainland
        • Through the efforts of Bridgewaters Waterworks, internal highways of water are being constructed around the England sector of mainland England.
      • Steam Power: Through the power of steam, engineers and designers brainstorm ways to use steam (created from burning either charcoal, wood, or coal) to power devices. (Should be mentioned that a Scottish genius invented the steam engine)
        • At McCarthy Arms Company, some of the first steam-powered machines were implemented in small numbers for the manufacturing of MAC guns and cannons.

Diplomacy

  • Australia: Due to Anastasia King’s decree to unite Australia, tribes are forced to choose between aligning with the British or standing and fighting them.
    • Same to be said for those in Novus Silundia
  • Indian Nations: Seeing that the countries of India are friendly, the British East India Company reaches out to all the nations in the area, hoping to strengthen their ties with all nations and open up trade routes with all.
  • Jaisalmer: The British ask the government if it is possible for them to purchase a port city, or at least a location for British ships and merchants to operate out of.
    • In addition, Britain (through the McCarthy Arms Company) looks into local companies in the country in order to purchase them.
  • Matagaskar: Due to the Civil War that broke out, the governor of the island does two things in response:
  1. They reach out to whichever one of the organizations is located closest to the British town of Port Dolphin. The governor offers to supply them with British weaponry and support, if they are willing to cooperate
  2. Troops are requested to assist in keeping the peace (around Port Dolphin, at least)
  • Saxony: Though Britain is pulling out of the conflict, they still provide weapons to the Germans (partially since Britain doesn’t need so many guns as the country demilitarized)
  • Vijayanagara: Due to trading with locals of the region, British influence spreads through the area, though slowly.


Allies

  • Galatoi: Trading partner with the BAKA company.
  • Naranga: British ally on the Asian mainland.
  • Toyotomi Shogunate: British ally (through the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company) in Asian area.
  • Vestkyst: Norwegian allies in the North Sea. The oldest ally of Britain, harkening back to the British Empire’s founding.
  • Yolngu: The furthest of Britain’s allies, the island-continent has metals far better than those in the region. As such, the majority of the trade from the region primarily consists of metals.


Events

  • Seven Years’ War (Aftermath): Though emerging victorious (in a way), the British economy took a large hit. With a deficit in money present, taxes across the entire empire increases
    • Each region can determine how the taxes will be issued out, with the only criteria being that a certain amount of money is sent back to the British Government
    • Should be mentioned that due to the vibrant trade between Southeast Asia and Britain, taxes do not need to increase by too much
  • The Unification of the Land Down Under (WiP):
    • The British Empire seeks to establish a few more coastal towns to assist with moving resources around the country.
  • Expansion Beyond the Horizon:
    • Arcadian Colonies
      • The Northwest Trail: In an effort to try and create a safer (and shorter) route for supplies to travel to and from British Yolngu and British Nagasato, the BAKA Gaikokuhito and BFG Companies join forces to create a route that spans “from sea to shining sea”
        • The Beginning of a Vast Trail: In 1761, approval was given for the construction of a trail from Port Novus Arcadia.
          • The plan calls for various “pit stop” towns to be constructed along a pre-planned route
          • With the assistance of the Trailblazing duo from the half-decade prior, Okita Tsukasa and Maria “Trailblazer” Mitchell as diplomats, some tribes gave the British permission for construction of such “pit stop” towns
      • Civil Unrest: With rising tensions, British troops are stationed in the territory to preserve the peace (since it was evident that local governors couldn’t do it)
        • More details are present in the Arcadian Colonies’ turn
    • Galatoi: With the new territory, forts arte constructed throughout the newly acquired Galatoi lands, to prevent the Sokotoi from waltzing into Galatoi again.
    • India: The British East India Company hatches a plan to acquire more control over the continent
      • With the takeover of Gujarat, the British East India Company looks into establishing more trading ports in northern territories.
    • Yolngu
      • The combined efforts of Britain and Yolngu slowly spread throughout Australia, as the tribes of Australia became friendlier towards the two powers.
      • Outback Grenadiers: Due to the success seen when training marines, the army rallied for a similar program, which was granted in 1753.
      • Nova Silundia: Much like the mainland, the British wrestled control of the island, and was successfully achieved in 1749.

Famous Vessels


HMS Victory (15XX)

  • Laid down in 15XX and launched in 15XX, the HMS Victory is a 50-gun First-class Frigate.
  • The namesake of her class, HMS Victory was the first pride-and-joy of the Royal Navy.
  • Famously captained by Admiral Francis Drake, the ship would lead the British navy to victory when it defeated the Spanish Armada, directly leading to one of the major reasons why Britain won in the Anglo-Spanish War in the late 16th century.
  • From there, it would also see combat in the League Wars as it ensured that those opposing Britain felt the wrath of her powerful broadside.
  • Eventually, the ship was retired in 1647, where it was put into the reserve fleet as a training vessel for new sailors.


HMS Fortune’s Bounty (1626)

  • An Olive-class Multi-purpose Merchant Frigate given to the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company from the British government. Laid in 1624 and left on its maiden voyage in 1626, the ship would find itself under the ownership of Fortuna King, a woman well-known for her assistance in the Wu-Narangan War in 1633 when she was involved in both a trading run to Naranga in addition to the assassination of the Wu General in the region.
  • Though the ship would remain in East Asia for most of its life, it would also visit Britain and the Mediterranean Sea during its time afloat under the ownership of Fortuna.
  • In 1661, while returning to Britain from Yolngu, the ship encountered rough seas around the southernmost tip of South America. Though it survived, the ship was badly beaten, as it limped to the British outpost on the Falklands Island. From there, Fortuna and her crew hitched a ride on a vessel back to Britain, where she received permission from the BAKA Gaikokuhito Company to purchase a replacement vessel: the Fortune’s Bounty II.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1661


HMS Sovereign of the Seas (1637)

  • Laid down in 1634 and launched in 1637, this ship is essentially an engineer’s wet dream. Built “just because,” the ship has more than double the guns of the next largest ships (the Victory-class) and was also over double the size, this ship towered over anything the British would build for the next half-decade or so.
  • That being said, the ship was also ladened with issues, such as poor handling and the likes.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704 to be used in HMS Sovereign


HMS Fortune’s Bounty II (1662)

  • A 28-gun xebec ordered by Fortuna King.
    • Also was equipped with two hwachas for testing purposes
  • Saw effective use under Fortuna’s captainship.
  • Notable for the Battle of the Vestkyst Fjords (1667) as well as for its involvement with rescuing Duchess Anastasia during the Vestkyst Civil War (1666).
  • Given to Lumi when Fortuna passed.
  • Fate: Scrapped in 1704


HMS Warspite (1668)

  • A 64-gun ship-of-the-line that served as Fortuna King’s flagship during the Anglo-Dutch War
  • Led the British fleet to victory against the Dutch fleet in the sole naval engagement in the “European front”
  • Fate: ???


British Western Territories | Albionite New World Colonies

  • Government: Due to reformations dating back to 1717 (Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, the Commonwealth Act), the British territories in the Western Hemisphere has gradually drifted into a sort of self-governance made up of 'colonies', some of which were once protectorates. In the face of the native threat, many colonies has turned to being organized into commonwealths, an organization of neighboring colonies for the purpose of promoting their own economic and military protection. Each commonwealth has their own informal 'council', they rarely meet unless for group decisions in the event of an emergency. Even while they are indirectly controlled or influenced by companies from their mother country, their influence waned over the colonies. As such, many once local companies, led by powerful families that originated from or based in the New World, has quickly grown enough to be able to have influence on par with the "motherland" companies.
  • Commonwealths & Colonies (w/ Population): ~8,850M Total. With the establishment of the Commonwealths, there has been a more accurate census for the population of each colony, which turned out to be larger than previously recorded. One of the many reasons was due to the records only showing subjects from Britain themselves and not other places such as the Germanic states, France, or Hispania. Of the total ethnicities, only almost a fifth are descendants from British settlers. But all colonists would consider themselves subjects of Albion. The number of "unpaid labor" is around 675k, mostly in Elysia and Catonzia Commonwealths.
    • Vinland Commonwealth: 2,160k. The Vinland Commonwealth, once the kingdom of Vinland that ruled over the northern part of the continent, they have a long history of brutal conflict and division. It was not until the arrival of the British that things have rapidly calmed down. The Vinland colonies eventually fell under the influence of Albion and were naturally divided up by their own accord, but a significant amount of customs still survive (like Odinism). They experience greater autonomy over other colonies, as unlike others they peacefully and willingly joined. The colony has strong Norse influence, but in recent times became more "British" as a diverse range of settlers came rolling in. This is also in part due to the slower population growth due to emigration to other colonies, only other settlers would stunt the decline. However, half of the Vinland colonies fell under the influence of other families.
      • Agatha: The Realm of Frost and snowy Homesteads is founded and integrated as a fully fledged British colony by 1643. The Schaefer family recently established themselves here, from the German states. They easily established themselves as popular within the Agatha Militiamen.
      • Asturia: Once known as Asturgatan, the British colony was founded in 1643 and has strong Odinist roots. They have one of the longest histories compared to the other colonies, with the exception of Belamane.
      • Belamach (Belamane): The beating heart of the old Vinland realm and Odinism in Arcadia, it mainly centers itself on the edges of the (OTL) St. Lawrence river. It became integrated up as an official British colony by 1643.
      • Culland: While established as a colony like its neighbors in 1643, they actually owned a small part of its modern form when it was first created. It was not only until a couple decades later that the land that belonged to the tribes were gradually integrated into the colony. The Owens family, descendants of Erin Owens, became an influential family in this place. They led the expansion and development of the land over generations.
    • Midland Commonwealth: 1,200k. The Midland Commonwealth, also known as the northern Heartlands, is the heartland of recent European settlement in the colonies, with the colonies in the Commonwealth typically covered with more modern architecture dating to the Enlightenment Era. Although Deasaheim (or Desaham) and New York has non-British origins, their populations are quickly outnumbered by settlers coming from different parts of Europe. The Midlands are also the economic center of the colonies north of Elysia, and has quickly grown to rival their neighbors to the south in terms of trade, setting up future cultural and economic boundaries. They are experiencing the highest rapid growth over the other commonwealths around this time.
      • Deasaheim (Desaham): Early history of the former Norse colony dates back hundreds of years before the arrival of the British, it was not until the early 1510s that the region truly took shape, taking its name off of the city "Deasaheim." The British wouldn't start slowly absorbing and establish it as a colony until the late 1630s. By 1645, it has been fully established as a fully-fledged colony. Unlike most other colonies, the colony was populated by a secondary wave of immigrants who came from other colonies instead of those who migrated directly from Europe. In the late 1600s, the Hammet family, the most influential family in the colony, moved from Pendraconia to establish a settlement called Trentowne. It became a center hub for many settlers from Pendraconia to go to, and serves as a gateway for immigration into the colony. Natural resources in the colony included agricultural land, forests (timber), iron ore, coal, and furs. Major exports from the colony included livestock, rice, wheat, indigo, rice, grain and other agricultural products.
      • New York: Originally founded as a Dutch colony in the early 1600s, "New Netherlands" was birthed from blood and fire. They experienced rapid expansion after conquering all hostile tribes from all sides. It was not until 1674 that the colony fell under British rule. A separate branch of the King family that just recently settled in Arcadia established a new independent branch of the BAKA company was set up in the colony shortly after it was fully set up as a fully-fledged colony and the occupation ceased. It has no formal governing powers, but it did not grow into influence until after recent reformations. The King family has a shadowy influence in the colony's affairs.
      • Lansenia: The colony was originally founded as a safehaven colony in 1565 for Azure Pilgrims, with the early name of "Plymouth", led by John(?) Mordue. At first, the faction ran into many issues, mainly trying to survive the winter. They were helped by a local tribesman nearby and the colony has just begun to become stabilized. Since then, the colony experienced great growth and expansion. In the present time, they became a hub for fishing and other coastal industries in the northern colonies.
      • Pendraconia: The colony was set up by William Penn in 1681, a colony splintered off from Elysia to become a haven for diverse beliefs, ranging from oppressed Catholics to Quakers. The Baskerville is the most powerful family in this colony, but considering the family has branches that served the King family (also the same ones that influences New York), the King family also has considerable influence in Pendraconia as well (especially the north). The colony is known for their friendliness towards the native tribes, specifically the Lenape and Nitanee. Their vast groundwork potential for farms, lumber, coalmines, and iron production are also not to be underestimated.
    • Elysian Commonwealth: 2,550K Elysian Commonwealth, also known as the southern Heartlands are colonies that were once part of the greater Elysian realm. Architecture there has been dated to as far back as the 1200s and 1300s, and more recent buildings has taken on a more "Neo-Byzantine" style once Elysia and its neighbors to the south has been gradually absorbed into the British sphere. Since then, their rapid expansion outwards has found a greater need for "unpaid labor", and by the 1700s the colonies in the Commonwealth has taken on a more agrarian lifestyle beyond the cities of the coastlines, with a fifth of the population being African "unpaid laborers" in hand. Cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton are considered the staple to the economy of the southern colonies. Many native tribes that were absorbed into these colonies (willingly) has been considered to be 'civilized', though has faced some discrimination and hostilities due to their mixed history with the old Greek settlers. However, much of the colonies located in this Commonwealth set an example for the rest of the colonies to follow due to being one of the first British colonies.
      • Elysia: the Realm of Marble and Wine, the origin of all Greeks in the New World. The colony has shown its earliest settlement in the early 1200s after the 4th Crusade. Ever since, it has became a hub of diverse beliefs, a mix of both Orthodox Christianity and cult Hellenism (paganism), while there were tensions between the two groups, they somehow get along (at least within the current borders of the Elysian colony). The colony has fields of tobacco and wine, and early permanent British settlement began in the 1561, with the establishment of Jamestown after a devastating Elysian War that started in 1553. Since then, the large state/colony of Elysia has been slowly chipped away to other newer states or colonies under the BFG company. Since the reformations, the Faber family became the most influential house in this place, supplanting the older Greek houses, with an industry and desire to travel west.
      • Laconia: Laconia was once a heavily divided history, with the Grand Duchy of Crotania long before that. On more recent maps, they are shown as a united place, and referred to as such. The colony has remnants of the Powhatans, though many more people are those who could trace their origins to Elysian settlers from the north. The Lloyd family, a powerful family with a military background, has taken up shop here after the Atouman Wars in Europe and quickly gained respect among the local population. The Trengouses also has some influence in a couple cities in this colony.
      • North Eldia: The old united Eldia colony had a long history of conflict in its pre-British years. Only had finally been united by its establishment as a colony under the control of the MOM company by the 1600s. The colony was split in 1705 and by the reformation, the MOM company was gradually supplanted by the local Kilmer and Trengouse families. There has also been a long time rivalry between the two families, as the Trengouse are coastal urban elites, trading fish and other seafoods. Meanwhile, the Kilmer family are more powerful in the countryside where the agrarian society resides, growing the standard cash crops.
      • South Eldia: The Realm of Summer and Indigo, the colony was established in 1705 after the Eldia colony was split by the British. The biggest production of this colony is its cash crops like tobacco, rice, and cotton. But the economy of indigo is almost exclusively in South Eldia. The Solheim family plantations are the leading producers of indigo and rice, dominating the flow of trade that comes in and out of South Eldia. Though, they merely have gotten a head start due to their rich and noble origins from Vestkyst. The colony seeks new frontiers with its colonial government having generally positive relations with the neighboring native states.
    • Catonzian Commonwealth: 1,150k. If one were to travel to the Catonzian Commonwealth, you would be amazed at the number of Hispanian, French, or "Native New-Worlders" inhabiting these parts. Though many of them remain separate, with many Natives being considered "second-class", but are still above "unpaid labor", with the exception of Cofitachequi. It is considered one of the more culturally distinct parts of the colonies as they are the most recent non-British entities to be influenced. Many older buildings in these colonies typically takes on a more Hispanian look. Like the neighboring Elysian Commonwealth to the north, the colonies of the deep south has been touched by a growing reliance on "unpaid labor". Their cash crops are mainly rice and cotton.
      • Cofitache: Cofitache, a land belonging to the people once known as the Cofitachequi, is dominated by Muskogean native culture. They are newest colony of the bunch and are still in development since its integration, but boasts plenty of settled places as well. Unlike most colonies, it already came with its own developed apparatus largely intact from its peaceful integration. Since then, many settlers poured across the border, but were mostly restricted to certain places to help keep the old native kingdom's integrity. The most influential family of the colony is the family of its native leader. Settler/colonist-wise, the Stonehart family has recently moved in and helped began economic development. The Stonehart family mainly came from the coastal cities along northern East Catonzia.
      • East Catonzia: (Rewritten) The history of Catonzia had been once a powerful state in the gulf before it became subjected to a colony. It was later ruled by the Hispanians through a combination of deals and conquests. In 1705, the colony was established as a split from the main state, as the British administration considered the territory too large to administer. The territory is the center of the rice trade of the colonies, as the experiment originated there. The Suazo family took up shop there, becoming a little more influential due to spearheading the spread of rice.
      • West Catonzia: In 1705, West Catonzia has an identity separate from East Catonzia. Most of West Catonzia was not originally part of Osnerol, the original exonym to the region given by the conquering Hispanians. Therefore, most of West Catonzia is filled by Hispanian, French, and British colonists. The Emanuel family is the most popular one in the region, serving as its governors as recently as the start of the 18th century.
    • Dracovor Commonwealth: 230k.
      • British Hudson Bay: Settlers from the great White North, roughly around OTL Hudson Bay. 30k+
      • British Laurentia: Acquired from Occitan/France as a result of the Seven Years War in 1762/3. 200k+

      • Bahamas: Once known a New Valcanor, the island was acquired from the war with Hispania, the same one where the British sunk the Hispanian Armada.
      • Belize (Honduras): Acquired after the League Wars from Iberia/Hispania. They are known for their timber.
      • Mosquito Coast: Acquired after the League Wars from Iberia/Hispania. They are known for their timber, like their northern counterpart.
      • Virgin Islands (Shattered Isles): Nothing happens in the Virgin Islands.
    • Other: ~800k. Those who are not under a Commonwealth
      • British Amazon: The lands here are remnants of a long struggle to keep it, after an uprising of native tribes of the Amazons has pushed the British to the shores. Many veterans were produced from this war that lasted for decades and many generations. Only bases on their islands are left standing.
      • British Falklands: Discovered a long time ago, though to the British its by Captain Drake, they are the most inhabited colony outside of the commonwealths.
      • British Galapagos? N/A
      • British Novus Arcadia: A settlement from OTL Seattle.
      • British Yenreshkanaan (Erie): Acquired from the War in 1762. 800k
  • Military Most of the colonial military of the colonies are currently directly controlled by the British. But since the Self-Enlightenment and Governance Act, troops are being slowly pulled out in favor of local militias. The Commonwealths are formed to help provide each other economic and military support in times of crisis as a result of this pull out.

  • Diplomacy:
  • Events;
    • Check "Self-Enlightenment and Governance" and the "Commonwealth" Acts under "Government"
    • Check Diplomacy.
      • Ani'ku'sa: To help provide a check to the power of the Yenreshkanaan up north, we wish to back any sort of Pro-British group in the land. Any group that takes power there should be crowned 'Emperor' or 'King' of the Cherokee (as the Ani'ku'sa are Cherokees) in exchange for unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • Creation of the Allied Reserve Territories plan (ongoing) The ever increasing threat of the Yenreshkanaan Empire along the western frontiers of the Midland and Elysian Commonwealth has increasingly became more concerning. But there is hope, following the question of westward diplomacy by the Catonzia and Elysia Commonwealths, they sent a certain expedition led by a character named Elijah Suazo and Alexander Kennaugh to negotiate an arrangement with any Pro-British Ani'ku'sa groups to take power in exchange for providing support for the unification of the Cherokee people and British protection under a protectorate status.
    • Rise of the Arcadian Sentinels (and Minutemen): The new war that erupted in the colonies has developed concern against the various native groups along the frontier that would be potentially hostile to the settlers, the colonists themselves also feared French raids along the settlements. The Sentinels, a military order dedicated to protecting and guarding the frontiers, has seen skyrocketing memberships. George Washington can be seen amongst the members, though he joined a few years earlier in 1751. Colonists who did not join the Sentinels would instead form their own local militias to help serve community interests and protection, this results in the rise in the early known minutemen - ready at a minute's notice.
    • Establishment of Dracuvor (Old Canada) Commonwealth: Dracuvor, named after Francis(ca) Drake (and by extension the British royal family) was created in 1767. Erie is not included in the new Commonwealth, mostly inhabited by Yenreshkanaan (Erie).
    • TL;DR:
      • British Hudson Bay will attempt to expand along the northern coastlines, a thing that has been lagging for decades.
      • Establishment of Dracuvor Commonwealth
