    Though inferior in speed and armament, bravery and seamanship skill allowed some galeazzas to survive and even sink the larger enemy vessels. Most of the time this was accomplished through clever manouvering and the detailed knowledge of Noyyau coasts, luring the pursuing enemies to shallow waters and reefs.
    Spoiler :


    While longbows also proved their effectiveness in repelling ships too close to the shore, the first coastal fortress was built on the tip of the peninsula dividing the Gulfus Latinus from the Wark Sound. These strongholds were intended to provide ships a safe harbor and troops an advantage over landing parties.
    Spoiler :


    In a move that caught the Noyyau completely by surprise, in Turn 673 a Malinese spy assassinated the mayor of Robertia and managed to frame a dissident faction for the murder. The spy, however, was caught when trying to escape aboard a Hittite ship, and under interrogation torture revealed everything.
    The authorities quickly released this information to the public, hoping to avoid massive unrest, as several members of the opposition had already been beaten by angry mobs.
    The results were not what the authorities expected, but open revolt was still avoided: the mobs became divided in their opinions, some believing the government about the Mali spy, others accusing the government of trying to cover up some even shadier deal with the opposition, others still vehemently protesting against the use of torture and wanting the prosecution of those responsible.
    Tensions remained high for months, but the looming threat of war was probably what kept the situation from degenerating, as everyone realized that there could not be a worse moment for anarchy.
    Spoiler :


    As a response to Malinese espionage, a Noyyau spy reached Mali shores a couple of Turns later, and successfully conducted a Counterespionage operation, hindering future Mali attempts. The spy then managed to stow away on a Hittite ship and, in several weeks of uncomfortable travel, returned home. The brave galeazza that brought the spy to the Mali continent by night, however, was not so lucky. The next morning, while still in sight of the shore, it was intercepted by a Mali flotilla and, though managing to sink an enemy vessel, ultimately the crew was overwhelmed and the ship captured.
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile in Bordemar, a powerful hurricane cut a swath of destruction through the city. Rebuilding efforts began in earnest, since the city was not directly threatened by the Mali.
    Spoiler :


    Author's note:
    Spoiler :
    At this point I had explored or traded maps and knew the general layout of the world, so I went and added a few more religions to the fourth continent (the one I called Everon), since now I wouldn't be seeing any territory I had not yet explored.
    The Zulu get Kemetism, the Ottomans Hinduism and the Native Americans Naghualism.


    Though no unrest had broken out, the government was still wary and decided to try to smooth things out with the various factions. Gifts, bribes, and tax breaks were used to try to calm the situation.
    Spoiler :


    In Turn 681 a formal peace was signed with the Egyptians, not that the respective militaries had ever seen each other. The Noyyau could have saved the effort, though, as the very next Turn the Hittites, also at war with Egypt, conquered their capital and annexed all their territories.
    Spoiler :


    Turn 683 marked the beginning of the Reneissance age, the period when the Noyyau accelerated the pace of research to catch up to the Mali to be able to regain control of their seas.
    Spoiler :


    The war had not stopped culture and art. A project long in the making was finally completed: the Sistine Chapel was unveiled, a masterpiece of art dedicated to the glory of the gods.
    Spoiler :


    With the Noyyau continent almost completely connected with a robust road network, many workers were idle (even with the ongoing construction of coastal fortresses) and emigrated in a massive wave to the Hittite Republic. The Noyyau government also entered talks with their Hittite counterparts, and a tech trade was agreed. It was uneven and definitely not a good deal for the Noyyau, but with the Mali still too advanced, the Noyyau needed every little boost they could get.

    RAND is still a work in progress, especially the balancing of the AI trades... :rolleyes:
    Also note that the beaker costs for techs have been increased substantially from the reneissance era onwards (actually from the medieval, but not so much as compared to ren and beyond)

    In Turn 685 the first of a new class of Mali vessels approached the Noyyau coasts. These Xebecs would soon become the bane of any Noyyau fisherman.
    Spoiler :


    Skilled artisans perfected the art of clockworks.
    Spoiler :


    The counterespionage mission conducted against the Mali proved to not have been in vain. The knowledge of the ways in which their spies operated allowed Noyyau operatives to foil several of their plans.
    Meanwhile, the Mali Xebecs continued to scatter and sink anything Noyyau that floated.
    Spoiler :


    Ancient ruins once again revealed a treasure that had not been found when the original settlement had been conquered, this time in the Maya ruins north of Bordemar.
    Spoiler :


    An overly curious Mali Sloop came too close to the walls of Robertia, and was promptly sunk.
    Spoiler :


    Mali Galleons, now escorted by large fleets of Xebecs, dropped more invaders on Noyyau soil. The city garrison of Roma repelled this attack, but took some losses as well.
    Spoiler :


    In a lucky and unexpected turn of events, the Robertian Coast Guard managed to sink a Mali Xebec.
    Spoiler :


    The unlucky galeazza that had transported the spy and was then captured by the Mali appeared in the Sarakshan inlet on Turn 700. The volleys of the city defenders did not discriminate, and two enemy vessels were sunk.
    Spoiler :


    In the same Turn, the Robertian Coast Guard scored another unlikely victory, and this time even managed to capture the enemy ship! The captain of the galleass was celebrated as a war hero, while the vessel was repaired and put into service.
    Spoiler :


    The Hittites maintained friendly relations, and agreed to another exchange of knowledge.
    Meanwhile, they were also busy conquering their own continent.
    Spoiler :


    A new Mali expedition landed near Wark in Turn 704, but did not survive long against the determined Noyyau garrisons.
    The fear the Noyyau had of the Mali was gradually mutating into anger, as the cat-and-mouse game between Noyyau fishing boats and Mali Xebecs was heavily disrupting seafood gathering, which the Noyyau considered a staple of their diet.
    Spoiler :


    The next Turn more Mali landed near Wark again, probably reinforcements for the doomed expedition of the previous Turn. Their lives found their violent end trampled under the feet of Noyyau War Elephants.
    Spoiler :


    Having learned the concept of the printing press from the Hittites, news and information began circulating more quickly. Among interesting if unimportant (for the Noyyau) news from the world, another naval victory was quickly overshadowed by sudden riots in Wark. Mali ingerence was suspected, but in the chaos no proof could be found.
    Spoiler :


    Astronomical measurements, now more precise than ever before thanks to the widespread adoption of mechanical clocks, would become a major stepping stone towards the liberation of Noyyau seas from Mali invaders.
    Spoiler :


    Coastal city garrisons rarely had a respite. Mali landings near Antium revealed a new and deadly weapon developed by the Malinese: the arquebus.
    Spoiler :


    The arquebusiers slaughtered the defenders on the battlements, their bullets seemingly ignoring Noyyau armor. Reinforcements were called from nearby cities, but in the time they took to arrive, the countryside was pillaged.
    Spoiler :


    The next Turn, the Noyyau Defense Force finally reached Antium, only to find that the Mali had received reinforcements in the form of siege bombards. The NDF engaged nonetheless, their numbers overwhelming the better armed Malinese.
    Spoiler :


    Mali spies continued to incite revolution in Wark, with one faction of rioters even claiming independence from the rest of the Republic. The rioting was finally stopped with a combination of a larger and more proactive garrison, and government spending to repair war and riot damages to the city.
    Spoiler :


    The NDF barely had time to regroup after the fighting near Antium when the Mali revealed another fearsome weapon: bombards mounted on the backs of elephants. The fear these beasts incuted in the population, coupled with the recent repeated pillaging of Rome's sea farms caused unrest and starvation in the city.
    The riots in Wark finally over, its dock workers went back to building as many fishing boats as possible, knowing that the Mali would soon sink them.

    Relentless, the Mali kept landing on Noyyau shores.
    Spoiler :


    At long last, ocean-capable ships larger than a galeazza were finally within the capabilities of Noyyau shipwrights.
    Spoiler :


    The Indian nation, through years of lucrative trade and sharing the same religion, maintained friendly relations with the Noyyau Republic. Where the Noyyau had pushed their knowledge in matters of warfare and navigation, the Indians had explored avenues of spirituality, and sharing technology benefited both civilizations.
    Spoiler :


    While the Mali navy was attacking fishing boats and their escorts in the Guld of Aachen, one of several attempts at inciting rebellion in Robertia was successful, once again riling up the population and creating a very unstable situation in the capital.
    Spoiler :


    The Hittites, still friendly towards the Noyyau, agreed to share their maps of the world.
    Spoiler :


    In Turn 742, digging for the construction of a coastal fortress on the Aachen peninsula, workers discovered a cache of ancient golden artifacts, mostly bracelets and necklaces, possibly predating the conquest of Evron by the Philistines.
    Spoiler :


    Though veteran Galeazzas were able to take on and even sink Mali Xebecs in one-on-one battles, sheer numbers allowed the Mali to overwhelm any Noyyau vessel caught on the open seas.
    Spoiler :


    In Turn 745 another Mali expedition threatened Aachen, but the NDF was in the area and intervened while the Mali were still regrouping after the landing.
    Spoiler :


    A few Turns later, a larger Mali force occupied the forests south of Wark. The NDF did not intervene immediately, as it was busy fitting bombards on the backs of its war elephants, similarly to how the Mali did.
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, warfare went on also on the “shattered continent” of Everon, with the American Republic conquering its neighbour Persia.
    Spoiler :


    The next Turn, upgrades completed, the NDF rushed to meet the Mali in battle, to prevent them sacking settlements near Wark.
    Spoiler :


    Turn 750 confirmed that the Mali really wanted Wark, as an even larger expedition appeared on nearby shores, and Mali vessels swarmed the Wark Sound. Fluyts, new oceangoing cargo ships, were repurposed as makeshift coastal fighting ships, to intercept and slow down Mali Galleons.
    In foreign news, the “shattered continent” remained true to its name, with the Native American Republic fighting a bloody civil war against a separatist faction.
    Spoiler :


    Though nothing could yet be done about the seas, on land Elephant Bombardiers proved to be a devastating weapon, breaking through enemy lines and allowing the cavalry to hit enemy formations from the flanks. The Battle of the Wark Hills was one of the largest yet fought in the First Mali War, and a decisive Noyyau victory.
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, another Mali Spy was thwarted. The risky counterespionage mission kept paying off.
    And in Paris, a dangerous yet very popular competition was established.
    Spoiler :


    A seemingly endless flow of Mali troops was directed towards Wark. The NDF was still recovering in Wark, when they were called to fight again...
    Spoiler :


    ...and again.
    Spoiler :


    Turn 754 would be another turning point in Noyyau history.
    The Turkish Empire, one of the several nations on the Shattered Continent, had adopted Hellenism as their state religion, proof that missionaries had not been sent abroad invain. Now that the Turks were at war, pressure from the religious hierarchy made the government accept their request for help.
    At the same time, thought completely unrelated, a Noyyau spy arrived at Uruk, a Hittite city, with the task of checking the trustworthiness of the maps the Hittites had shared. But as soon as the merchant ship had left port, the Hittite Republic showed its true face and backstabbed the Noyyau, declaring war and bringing along the Indians and Americans as well.
    This heinous act of treachery crushed the last optimistic hopes the Noyyau could have, and forever set their worldview to an “us vs them” mentality.

    Actually both Mali and Hittites are Republics, the Noyyau are the only ones that haven't started a war first.
    Yet :lol:

    And we won't be one island for long.

    Abandoning its original mission, the Spy in Uruk went underground, made contact with local Sumerian nationalists, and trained them in guerrilla tactics and propaganda.
    Spoiler :


    Slowly but surely, the Noyyau narrowed the technological gap. Studying captured Malinese weapons, the Robertian Arsenal was finally able to establish firearms production on a large scale.
    Spoiler :


    Fortified harbors had been set up along the coastline, to provide refuge to any vessel suddenly intercepted by Malinese warships. Though Malinese naval cannons were powerful and deadly on the open sea, Malinese ships still kept their distance from these forts, as the catapults and trebuchets behind their walls could do significant damage to any ship passing too close to the shore.

    In Turn 762, the recently built Khoisan Fort in the Noyyau District was the rally point for the units forming the new Republican Retaliatory Response, a mix of veteran NDF units and green recruits, the first Noyyau attempt to invade another landmass. Lacking warships capable of standing up to large fleets of Malinese Xebecs, the RRR had to wait until the coasts were clear before attempting to take to the seas.
    Spoiler :




    Meanwhile, the Mali made another attempt and landed a large cavalry force on the hills overlooking Antium. They were met and defeated by the Noyyau's own cavalry, in a battle that confirmed that spears, the ancient and honoured Noyyau weapon, were still deadly, especially when wielded at high speed from horseback.
    With most of the infantry sent to form the RRR, the NDF found that a mix of light and heavy cavalry, supported by the local garrisons and the fearsome Bombardier Elephants, was a faster and more effective means to stop enemy landings along the whole southern coast.
    Spoiler :


    In Turn 767 the Crossbowmen that patrolled the southern coast were the first units to receive the new Arquebuses.
    Spoiler :


    At long last, in Turn 767 no Mali Xebecs were spotted and the RRR embarked on its historical voyage.
    Their objective: the Republic of India, long time friend and sudden traitor to the Noyyau.
    Fanatics and idealists had argued that the RRR should be directed towards the Mali, but more rational minds were in command. It had been centuries since the Noyyau had engaged in the conquest of foreign lands, and never had it happened across a sea. Even the Malinese Republic, the most advanced nation in the world, uncontested dominator of the seas, had been unable to establish a permanent foothold on Noyyau soil.
    It was almost a blessing that India had accepted the (unproven but obvious) Hittite bribe to declare war: theirs was a small subcontinent, on the opposite side from the Malinese, with only four major cities to capture. The Indian military had little to no experience in large scale warfare, having been at peace for the last few centuries, and was technologically equal if not inferior to the Noyyau.
    Victory was expected to be swift.
    Spoiler :


    The first Indians to realize they were being invaded were quickly trampled under the Noyyau Elephants' charge, giving time to the rest of the RRR to disembark unopposed.
    Spoiler :


    The next Turn, the Noyyau artillery once again had static city fortifications as a target, instead of mobile ships. After only one Turn of bombardment, a city gate was breached and the Noyyau assaulters poured in, led by the descendants of the legendary REX.
    The Indians had numbers and knowledge of the city on their side, and though ultimately Vijayanagara fell, they managed to inflict casualties. Somewhat demoralizing for the Noyyau was the loss of an entire cadre of Bombardier Elephants, foolishly sent inside the city despite their massive size. Their commander thought that they would simply trample their way through, but the Indian stone houses proved to be quite unlike forest trees, trapping and often breaking the large animals' legs. With such limited mobility, it was easy for the last defenders to bring down these otherwise invulnerable foes, shortly before reinforcements arrived and the city was conquered.
    Spoiler :


    Having probably heard about the invasion of India, the Americans offered to cease hostilities, ignorant that the Noyyau were not yet capable to reach their lands, with the sea routes now threatened by Mali and Hittite warships together.
    Spoiler :


    The first major problem the Noyyau faced in Vijayanagara was food: the city, now cut off from any supply, not only could not feed itself, but had also a sizeable army draining its meager reserves. Military engineers worked tirelessly to repair battle damages to the basic infrastructure, but the only effective solution was to simply allow starving citizens to leave. The reasoning was that, not only would the refugees become an extra burden for the Indian military, soon enough they would return under Noyyau rule anyway.
    Spoiler :


    The Indians were quick to organize a counterattack, but not quick enough: they were caught by surprise, still on the move, by the RRR.
    A larger Indian army was spotted on the other side of the Himalaya mountain range, but since the Indians seemed to lack any form of cavalry, they were deemed too slow to threaten Vijayanagara before the RRR could return.
    Spoiler :


    In a couple of Turns the food scarcity in Vijayanagara was solved, mostly due to emigration and the expansion of Noyyau control in the countryside.
    Spoiler :


    Turn 777 was marked by the Battle of the Son River. A large Indian Trebuchet group, probably artillery support for the forces defeated in this same place only two Turns prior, tried to defend the northern bank of the river Son, positioning their trebuchets on several hilltops overlooking the shallow river fords. What the Indians did not take into account, however, were the impressive river-crossing capabilities of the Noyyau, fording the deep river in places the Indians had considered simply impassable and thus left undefended. In the time it took for them to turn the siege machines in the new direction, Noyyau soldiers were already charging them.
    Spoiler :


    The Malinese once again sent troops to their doom, this time in the forests of Aachen. The NDF, now mostly comprised of cavalry, was quick to arrive, but the extensive woodlands gave a defensive advantage to the Mali infantry, who had the time to pillage the area before being intercepted.
    On a side note, an Indian spy, posing as translator, was caught in Vijayanagara trying to steal the most recent Noyyau deployment plans.
    Spoiler :


    Turn 785 was the turning point of the Noyyau-Indian war. Convinced by the repeated battles across the Son river that the Noyyau wanted to move towards Pataliputra in the east, the Indians made the fatal mistake of sending most of their remaing troops there, leaving their capital Delhi woefully unprotected. With a swift march, the RRR went west and the fate of Delhi, and the Indian Republic as a whole, was sealed.

    The capture of Delhi is usually considered to be the beginning of the 3rd Noyyau Golden Age, spurred by renewed national pride and faith in a future final victory against all enemies.
    Spoiler :


    The real government power, by this time, was back in the hands of the Senate, which forced a reorganization of the army, especially the recruitment, into the first prototype of a modern standing army as opposed to the traditional regional feudal levies.
    Healthcare, traditionally the competence of the Hellenistic Church, was formalized, and, coupled with new advancements in medicine and more rational standards of education, any individual with the proper permits could open a health practice.
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, warfare continues on the shattered continent, with the Americans wiping out the Turks.
    Spoiler :


    In Turn 789 Noyyau had to be quarantined, as a smallpox epidemic wrought havoc in the poorer neighbourhoods, due to appalling (un)sanitary conditions.
    Spoiler :


    The Zulu asked for help in developing better armor, but the Noyyau, having half (or even more) of the world against them, could not spare any armourer. Not to mention that India's betrayal was still very fresh in their memories.
    Spoiler :


    While on the Noyyau front the Mali had landed another sizable expedition in the Aachener Wald, Oceania declared war on Eastasia they also declared war on the Hittites. The conflict had escalated in a true World War, with every major nation against each other, and the continent of Everon busy in internal warfare as well.
    Spoiler :


    After prolonged and heated debates in the Senate, which had begun long before the siege itself, it was finally decided to abandon Bombay's current location, and rebuild the city on a nearby hill, as soon as the whole subcontinent was subjugated pacified.
    The fighting itself was quite straightforward, trebuchets and bombards reduced a section of the city walls to rubble, then swordsmen led the charge against the demoralized Indian defenders.
    Spoiler :


    Two turns after the Noyyau politely turned down their request for technical help, the Zulu decided it was a good idea to declare war as well.
    “It's as if they want us to invade them.” commented a representative of the Senate. “Didn't they see what had just happened with India? It's right off their own coast!”
    “The RRR will soon conclude operations on the Indian subcontinent,” added a ranked military official “and with the experience recently gained, we foresee no major difficulties in engaging this next target. Really, the Zulu just did us a favor.”

    The Mali expedition in the Aachener Wald caused substantial damage to Noyyau activities in the area. Though they put up a fierce resistance, ultimately the 1st Arquebusier Regiment was overwhelmed by the Mali attackers. The Aachener Wald fortress was conquered, and for the first time since the beginning of the conflict, the Mali had conquered a portion of Noyyau soil.
    Meanwhile, rumors spread about a new concept of society developed by Mali philosophers, and Noyyau volunteers were being gathered and equipped in preparation of a major push into Zulu territory, to settle the areas soon to be conquered liberated.
    Spoiler :


    The annexation of India was completed in Turn 797 with the conquest of Pataliputra. Artillery once again confirmed its fundamental role in breaching the fortifications to allow the battle-hardened Noyyau assaulters to engage the enemy directly.
    Spoiler :


    With the whole of India now under firm Noyyau control, the city of Bombay was resettled in a more practical location, giving it access to the sea.
    Spoiler :


    A breakthrough in metallurgical technology in Silver Hills allowed the Noyyau to cast cannons smaller yet more powerful than the traditional bombards, as the much more resistant weapons could be loaded with more powder. The first new cannons were soon sent to Robertia to be fitted on a new class of ship.
    Spoiler :


    The Mali landed another scouting party near Saraksha, but the quick arrival of the NDF cut short their stay.
    Spoiler :


    The next Mali expedition landed more to the West, on the outskirts of Wark. Their fate had been set as soon as they left their homeland.
    Spoiler :


    These seemingly suicidal landings were revealed to be diversions for another massive force attempting to capture Aachen. The Noyyau capillary road network, however, coupled with the speed of the NDF's cavalry, made Mali hopes of not being intercepted vanish.
    Spoiler :


    A prelude to greater things to come, the “A New Hope” was the first Noyyau Sloop-class vessel. Designed for speed and manouverability rather than sheer firepower, Sloops and their larger cousins the Brigantines were armed with the new naval cannons, and the Arsenal in Robertia had begun their large scale production.
    The “A New Hope” engaged a Mali Xebec off the coast of Noyyau, damaged it but was itself forced to retreat after a lenghty battle.
    This distraction was necessary to allow the RRR safe sailing towards Zululand.
    Spoiler :


    As soon as the RRR set foot on Zulu soil, Trebuchets and Bombards opened up on the unprepared Zulu defenders. Nobamba remained under Zulu control only due to the sheer number of Zulu troops present.
    Spoiler :


    A major naval victory occurred in Turn 805, with the capture of a Mali Xebec by the crew of a newly commissioned Sloop, operating out of the coastal fortress in the Noyyau district.
    Spoiler :


    While the Mali kept sending their soldiers to certain death, the Noyyau Navy finally had the means to strike back and engage in proper naval warfare.
    Poseidon's temples experienced a surge of donations and attendance throughout the Noyyau Republic.

    Naval supremacy will be the key to victory for the Noyyau.
