Turn 0 (188) So we have all that choppable forest around Farghana and not a single worker in sight -> workers started. As gracious act, we liberate the crappy desert town of Farah to Khwarezmia, who reluctantly approve. Trade copper to Abbasids for Cotton and +2gpt and Deer to Fatimids for 4gpt. Trade Levy Armies and Asymmetric Warfare to Abbasids for Economics and 220 gold. I am dissappointed to see that we haven't switched our civics to Religious Law and Empire, don't bother to do it with anarchy. We improve from 196 gold -40gpt to 416 gold -25gpt. Spoiler : Turn 1 Kerman finishes Guilhall, next Sunni Madrasah. Quetta Guildhall -> Blacksmith. Turn 2 Herat University -> Pottery Workshop. We start to sell Sorghum to Byzantium for 10gpt. Our army lands next to Mecca. Spoiler : Turn 3 Khavekend Worker -> Worker, Khwarezmia takes Nishapur (Western Khorasan) from Seljuks. Mecca's defences down to zero. Khwarezmia gives us Caste System when I ask for it. Spoiler : Turn 4 Kerman Sunni Madrasah -> Sunni Mosque, Zaranj Guildhall -> Blacksmith, Marv University -> Karimi Funduq. We capture Mecca! Spoiler : Turn 5 Khavakend Worker -> Confectioner, Herat Pottery Workshop -> Slave Market, Farghana Worker -> Worker. Turn 6 Gwadar university -> War Galley, Mazar Walls -> Castle. We conquer Ghazna, so that it can be pacified before the Ghorids spawn. Turn 7 I settle our Relic and GG in Farghana. Turn 8 Gwadar finishes war galley, next Karimi Funduq, later switched to Minaret of Jam (8 turns). Farghana worker -> Heroic Epic! We trade Castle Building for Religious Unity with Khwarezmia. Turn 9 Kerman Sunni Mosque -> Library, Quetta Guildhall -> Blacksmith, Samarqand worker -> BS. Turn 10 We research Cavalry Tactics, next Paper. We get a nice event! We meet Gujarat and trade fur for 3gpt with them. I queque Soltaniyeh in Gwadar. Spoiler : Turn 11 Khavakend Confectioner -> Butchery, Herat Slave Market -> Walls, Quetta BS -> Sunni Madrasah. Turn 12 (200) Another event that gives +1 gold Khavakend's tannery! Mazar Archery Range -> Marksman. I end the set by collecting some tribute from the AI. Notes and suggestions: -Finish Minaret of Jam and Soltaniyeh asap in Gwadar -Tech towards courthouses, then maybe for Kizil Kule to Gwadar. -Farghana will soon produce 10exp HHAs in no time at all; slowly prepare for Mongols Invasion. -Don't forget the Ghorids. -We shouldn't expand too much, India (Sindh, Multan, Lahore!?) could be viable at some point though.
