    C. 4000, BC,



    Ten thousand men, women, and children, marched through the jungle. The Indian people had been nomadic hunter-gatherers, but this was all about to change. A man named Gandhi, renowned for his wisdom, had told of green pastures to the south where life would be much better than it would be in the disease-ridden jungle. He convinced the entire tribe to quit its way of life and move south with him. After years of wandering, many people started to question Gandhi's wisdom, and some were considering abandoning him and going back north. But then one day, they came to the place where the jungle ended and the grassland began.



    The people asked Gandhi what they were to do next. He ordered them to cut down some of the trees. The trees that were cut down provided wood for the houses that the people would live in. Gandhi himself would live in a cave, which perplexed many Indians. The cave and the nearby houses became known as the city of Delhi. Gandhi would rule over the new city with absolute power for millennia.



    To the south, there were herds of cattle. These would soon be domesticated. The the north, there was the jungle that the Indian people used to live in. It had little to offer beyond worms that could produce silk.

    While to our modern standards, Delhi society may seem primitive, this was far from the case. They had already developed an alphabet and ceremonial burial practices. Under Gandhi, India would advance even further.

    Gandhi looked upon Delhi, the city that he had brought into the world. While it wasn't much now, he dreamed of sprawling urban landscapes and buildings that touched the heavens itself. but for now, he was a tribal leader living in a cave in a small town on the edge of a jungle. There was much more work to be done.

    C. 3850 BC, Delhi, India

    Gandhi knew that other humans lived on this planet. He made finding them a priority. Some of the elders spoke of a village not too far from Delhi. Gandhi decided that India would make contact with them. He was not naive, and he would only send armed men to the village, in case its inhabitants were not so friendly. The first band of Indian warriors armed with stone axes was formed.



    These men found the location of a village to the northeast of Delhi. In c. 3800 BC Indian warriors entered the Tatar village. the Indian warriors were received as honored guests. This may have been because the Tatars were genuinely kind people, or maybe they were just frightened of the Indians, we will never know. According to legend, the village's most skilled warrior joined the Indians.



    Legend also tells that Tatar warriors escorted Indian settlers. When Delhi grew in size, some people left to build their own city. Gandhi would not let them travel without protection. While the group thought that the hunting weapons would be enough to protect them, they were forced to travel with Tatar warriors.

    In c. 3350 BC the group came across an Avar village by a river. The Tatar warriors entered the village first but they were not welcomed by the inhabitants. When they learned of the Indian settlers the village warriors were convinced that India was coming to take their land. The men of the village armed themselves with axes and one charged at the Tatar warrior and was killed in the ensuing fight.



    The rest of the Avars fled to the mountains. The Settlers founded the city of Bombay at the site of the old Avar village, c. 3300 BC.



    News of the battle eventually reached Delhi where the people offered to help expand the palace of Gandhi. The first improvement would be building roads around his cave. India was expanding, a new city had been founded, its warriors had proven themselves in combat, and Indian workers had built roads into the jungle to give Delhi access to silk.

    C. 3100 BC, hundreds of miles north of Indian territory

    It was a long, perilous trip. Thousands of settlers had traveled through jungle and marsh. Several perished from disease or from wild animals. Finally, the settlers felt relief, as they saw green grasslands that reminded them of Delhi. This is where they would settle down.



    Far to the South, the Avars continued to threaten and frighten the citizens of Bombay. Though they had not attacked, no one would leave the city out of fear, including the Tatar warriors. Then, in c. 3050 BC, a group of citizens of Bombay armed themselves with axes and attacked a group of Avars to the Southwest. They charged up the mountain and killed every single enemy warrior without taking a single casualty. They were immediately hailed as heroes.



    After 1000 years, India had expanded considerably. Modern archaeologists now estimated that in 3000 BC 13% of the world's population lived in India.



    In c. 2950 BC Indian warriors killed the last Avars on the mountain to the east of Bombay. However, this time many Indians were killed or wounded in the battle. The Avar wars had come to a close and India was victorious.



    In c. 2800 BC, the city of Bangalore was founded a few hundred miles to the Southwest of Delhi.



    That same year, warriors from Madras found a Kushans village. Just like the the Tatars a millennium earlier, the villagers were friendly and their best warrior joined India.



    The Ghuzz villagers were not as friendly. Some of them attacked the Indian warriors (unsuccessfully), while others just ran away.



    Fifty years later, the same thing happened at a Ghuzz village to the South.



    The Ku****es, on the other hand, were happy to meet India. It was from the Ku****es that India learned pottery.



    2670 BC would be an important year for India. It was the year that civilization developed writing. It was originally used for recording business transactions but soon people would use it to write stories. One of the earliest of these stories was The Avar Wars, which was based heavily on oral tradition and contains numerous implausibility. This is also where India begins to record its history rather than relying solely on oral tradition. However, its estimated that less than 1% of India's population of 100,000 was literate at this time.

    Hundreds of miles east of Delhi, 2630 BC

    Indian warriors exploring to the west come across a camp of hostile warriors calling themselves the Aryans.



    Meanwhile, East of Bangalore, Indian Warriors entered a Kushans village. The Kushans had taught the Indians pottery and India thought highly of them. However, these Kushans were not pleased to see their guests.



    One group of Kushans attacked the Indian warriors while others headed towards Bangalore. When they entered the village the townsfolk bribed the Kushans to not harm them.



    In 2590 BC, Indian warriors came across another Tatar village. The villagers taught India its warrior code.



    That same year warriors captured the Aryan camp and the surviving Aryans fled.



    India learned Masonry from the Polynesians who lived in the mountains to the far west.



    One man in the Polynesian village told of people who live in towns to the North. The warriors went to investigate this. They found the town of Antioch.



    Contact was made between India and the Persian people. This would be the first group of people that India would interact with that could be considered a civilization, and unlike the Avars, Ghuzz, or Kushans, posed a threat to India.

    Hundreds of miles east of Madras, 2430 BC

    The settlers from Madras and their Kushans escorts crossed the river. Here they would make new lives for themselves and their families.



    In 2350 BC the citizens of Madras were scared by menacing Aryan warriors in the woods to the city's east. The Aryans never attacked though.



    In a strange turn of events, an Avar warrior joined India.



    In that same year, India developed its first code of laws and was probably the first civilization on Earth to do so. This came right after the development of Philosophy in India.



    In 2310 BC, India founded its first coastal city, Lahore.



    In 2230 BC Indian warriors were attacked upon entering a Hsiung-Nu village far to the northeast of Indian territory.



    In 2190 BC Kushans warriors came across men armed similarly to them, but wearing purple instead of gray. They said they were Iroquois and that their leader was Hiawatha.



    Soon, Ghandi sent an emissary to speak with Hiawatha.



    That same year India founded its second coastal city, Karachi



    And a friendly Sakae village gave 25 pounds of gold as a gift to Indian warriors.



    Gandhi's efforts to find the other humans who lived on this planet were successful. However, they also caused concern. Now not only one, but two civilizations stood to challenge India's power. Though Xerxes and Hiawatha seemed friendly for now, he could not be sure that relations would remain warm.

    Outskirts of Bangalore, 2070 BC

    The workers rejoiced. Their long task was finally over. They had completed a road between Delhi and Bangalore, facilitating the quicker movement of people and goods between the two towns.



    In 2030 BC, India settled its third coastal city, Kolhapur.



    And a fourth coastal city was founded in 1990 BC, Jaipur.



    In 1950 BC, Indian warriors and settlers were traveling to find a place for a new city. On their way there they found a new Aryan camp. They fought and killed the Aryan warriors and took 25 pieces of gold.



    That same year, a friendly Ainu village gave India their map of the surrounding region. It included a barbarian camp, a village, and a town called Calixtlahuaca.



    1950 BC also saw the completion of India's first temple in Delhi.



    The frontier city of Lahore had grown very quickly to being one of the largest cities in India. However, this led to overcrowded living conditions. Unlike India's other large towns (like Delhi) it had no access to luxuries like silk. The garrison had also left the city to explore. In 1870 BC citizens in Lahore rioted. The riots stopped eventually but took a toll on Lahore's productivity.



    The same year Indian emissaries met with Hiawatha again. India gave the Iroquois its writing system while the Iroquois gave India the wheel, its ideas on mysticism, and a hefty sum of gold for the ancient times.



    Far to the west, Indian warriors angered an Ainu village in 1830 BC.



    In 1790 BC, the frontier town of Calcutta had the same problem as Lahore.



    The same year, Indian warriors angered a Yue-Chi village on the Persian border.



    India was a growing country in both population and territory. India had a higher population than Persia and only a slightly lower population than the Iroquois.

    Sakae village, 1790 BC

    Indian warriors entered the Sakae village. They were optimistic, but prepared for the worst. And they were right to be prepared. The villagers attacked the warriors but were repelled. The warriors would be given elite status after the battle, a first in Indian history.



    These warriors also made contact with the Aztecs, the people who lived in Calixtlahuaca. India would pay the Aztecs 90 pounds of gold in exchange for their secrets of bronze working. Gandhi did this because he was concerned of future Persian aggression and wanted to be better able to defend his cities to the north.



    In 1750 BC, Hyderabad was founded to the east.



    In the same year Bengal was founded in the north near Persia.



    In 1725 BC Chittagong was founded in the southwestern plains near that were known for their horses and grapes.



    In 1700 BC a Hsiung-Nu village to the west gave India 50 pounds of gold.



    In 1675 BC a group of settlers from Madras found the newly founded Persian city of Sidon where they had thought of settling, they would have to go farther.



    That same year Indian warriors came across the first mounted unit, a Chanca horseman. They didn't engage in combat and just hoped that the horsemen would attack Persia.



    Persia sent emissaries to meet with Gandhi that same year as well. They demanded that Indian troops leave Persian territory. Gandhi agreed. He sensed future conflict between the two civilizations.



    In 1650 Punjab was founded.



    The same year saw India give its secrets of ceremonial burial and seven pounds of gold to the Aztecs in exchange for iron working.



    The frontier was closing, unsettled land was quickly being claimed. There was increasingly less space beween India and the Persians to the north, the Iroquois to the east, and the Aztecs to the South. Tensions were rising. It was only a matter of time before conflict would come.

    Far western jungles, 1625 BC

    A band of warriors climbed a hill and observed the land below. They saw a group of men armed with spears and bronze shields. The spearmen were protecting a group of settlers. They belonged to a civilization called China.



    A meeting was soon set up with China's leader Mao. Compared to India, China was significantly weaker and less advanced.



    That same year saw an Aryan warrior join India's army.



    But perhaps even more significantly, in 1625 BC a group of intellectuals from all around India met in Delhi. They discussed their dissatisfaction with the current system of government. Corruption was rampant and many resources had been wasted by the government. This corruption was more pronounced the further away from the capital one lived. After months of debate, the intellectuals presented their proposals to Delhi's political, financial, religious, and military elite.

    They called for a representative form of government, where each city would send representatives based on their population. The representatives would chose a prime minister to be head of state. Gandhi would be given the power of veto and would represent India on the world stage. Women and the poor were excluded from participation in this new system. They called it a "Republic."

    While many people agreed with their ideas, one very important man did not. Subhas II was the Despot of India. While in the early days Gandhi directly governed India, over time he began to transfer the the day-to-day affairs of the nation to a despot. Whether the title of despot transferred through resignation, natural death, or assassination, Gandhi was not concerned. As long as the despot knew his place and did not oppose Gandhi in any way, he would be left alone. Subhas thought that he didn't need to consult Gandhi, who was on vacation. He ordered that the intellectuals be arrested and put of trial for insurrection.

    The intellectuals were tried, found guilty, and sentenced to death by hanging. Before their execution could be carried out, they were freed by sympathetic citizens. A revolt had begun against the the government. Anarchy spread throughout the land. Across India, towns declared their support for the Republic.



    As soon as Gandhi heard about the incident, he returned to Delhi with soldiers. He ordered the arrest of Subhas for not consulting him before arresting the intellectuals. Gandhi gave a general amnesty to all involved in the protests. Eventually he accepted the intellectuals' demands and the Republic of India was formed. Subhas was set free but would later be murdered by an angry relative of a man killed in the protests.



    During the period of anarchy the city of Dacca was founded.



    And disease took the lives of one third of Lahore's citizens.



    The formation of the Republic of India was not what people expected it to be. Immediately, scientific research had to be drastically cut as the new government had to pay the soldiers more. The military was also banned from using its traditional methods of breaking riots. While corruption was lower, many questioned whether the change was worth it.

    In 1575 BC India exchanged its code of laws for the Iroquois secrets of mathematics and some gold.



    The city of Indus was founded the same year in the northwestern frontier near Persia.



    In 1550 BC a curragh crew learned that the body of water they were exploring was actually just a large lake.



    In 1500 BC Ganges was founded on a river on near Aztec territory.



    Indian warriors also angered yet another village, this time it was the Polynesians.



    The Aztecs were given mysticism and some gold in exchange for their secrets of map making.



    Persia completed a giant statue in it's capital.



    In 1475 BC Indian warriors dispersed a Yayoi camp to the far west.



    In 1450 BC Gandhi was in a meeting with his most trusted generals. They discussed the threat of Persia to the north, and how walls were being constructed and troops were being recruited. Gandhi was relieved to hear that Persia had not acquired Iron yet. But while they were discussing the Persian threat, the foreign adviser knocked on the door. A general opened the door and asked what was the matter. The foreign adviser gave told the news that no one wanted to hear and that no one had been expecting.

    Chittagong, India, c. 1400 BC



    As the sun was setting, the town watchmen spotted men wearing green in the distance. Upon closer inspection, he saw that they were all armed. Some were armed with axes, some were armed with spear, some with bows, and some with clubs. They were Aztecs. Aztec soldiers had wandered around the border region before, but never in such large numbers. They immediately warned the townsfolk that an attack could be coming and men were soon armed with spears and axes. That night Aztecs soldiers, armed with axes attacked the city. They were not expecting the defenders to be prepared and were easily repelled by Indian spearmen. Ironically, India had learned how to make bronze spears from the Aztecs.

    Not long after the failed attack the Aztecs tried again to take Chittagong. This time they sent the famed jaguar warriors, who were twice as quick as any Indian soldier. They were similarly repelled but some were able to escape with their lives. As soon as word of Indian victory at the First Battle of Chittagong reached Delhi the people celebrated and offered to expand Gandhi's palace.



    In 1375 BC word reached India of buildings called "The Pyramids" built in a far away city called "Babylon."



    In 1350 BC the Aztecs started believing the prophecies of the Oracle, who was a wise old priest. The Oracle was often mocked in India.



    In 1325 BC the Second Battle of Chittagong was fought. Once again, jaguar warriors attacked Indian spearmen, lost decisively, and some of them ran away after seeing that the battle was hopeless.



    In 1300 BC Gandhi announced that the Indian parliament had been dissolved. He claimed emergency powers for the duration of the war.



    Surprisingly the Aztecs did not attack during the short period of anarchy. Their soldier just wandered around the region.



    By 1275 BC the Republic of India was gone and India was once again ruled by a despotic regime.



    1250 BC saw two battles. Indian archers killed Aztec spearmen in the desert to the southeast of Karachi. The Aztecs also tried to take Chittagong again. The Third battle of Chittagong was another Indian victory, with Aztec warriors being massacred while the jaguar warriors slipped away to fight again.



    That same year saw the construction of a Mausolleum for a man named Mausollos in Delhi.



    In 1225 BC Indians built a canal allowing travel from what became called the Lake of Mexico to the ocean. A town called Pune was built nearby.



    In 1200 BC the Fourth Battle of Chittagong was fought. This time the Aztecs brought archers. Aztec archers massacred the elite spearmen defending the town. another unit of spearmen was killed. The jaguar warriors played a minor role in the battle. At the end of the battle, a few townsfolk armed with stone axes were all that remained of the town's defense. fortunately, a band of spearmen was quickly rushed.



    The defenders realized that the odds were not in their favor and India quickly sued for peace. Surprisingly, the Aztecs agreed to pay money for a peace treaty.



    And the Aztec War ended. Not much was lost or gained from either side, however, the war did divert India's attention from creating settlers and allowed the Iroquois to catch up with India in land area.

    Delhi, 1200 BC

    Large crowds gathered to hear the tales of Li Wei, an explorer of Chinese and Polynesian descent. He told tales of his travels around the world. He told of the Aztecs, of China, of Persia, and of the Iroquois, nations that Indians knew of. But he also told of the city of Zimbabwe in a faraway civilization called Zululand. He said they had architecture similar to that of Persia. He also spoke of their walls. "Unlike Indian walls that are only built around a city or town, the Zulu have built a wall over their entire borders." Many were skeptical of his tales, especially since he was unable to explain exactly where Zululand was.



    In 1150 BC the city of new Delhi was founded near a source of iron.



    In that same year Indian workers finally completed a road to Chittagong, where there were horses.



    In 1125 BC India sent emissaries to the Iroquois. They exchanged their knowledge about the pantheon of gods and goddesses for the Iroquois knowledge of construction, horseback riding, and literature. A hefty sum of gold was thrown in as well.



    This exchange of knowledge is cited by most scholars as the beginning of a new era for India, the Middle Ages. Gandhi's palace was once again expanded.

    Sorry the Aztec War wasn't too exciting. I only had one offensive unit (an archer). The Aztecs could have attacked other cities that weren't well defended and probably captured them. But they didn't.

    Teotihuacan camp in oasis near Aztec territory, 1100 BC,

    Indian warriors charged into the camp, axes swinging, as they had done so many times. They quickly decimated the Teotihuacan inhabitants, though some survivors were able to flee. After the camp was raided the only barbarians left were in the jungles to the east of Delhi.



    New Bombay was founded that same year.



    The Iroquois completed the Great Library in their capital in 1050 BC.



    Word reached the citizens of Hyderabad of a horde of barbarian horsemen preparing to attack their city. The attack never came. It is believed that the barbarians killed Iroquois warriors exploring the jungle.



    In 975 BC Persia gave India it's belief in one god while India gave its ideas of representative government and 10 pounds of gold to Persia.



    In 900 BC contact was made with Egypt.



    In 850 BC Persia completed the Great Lighthouse in its capital.



    In 825 BC Egypt built the Temple of Artemis in its capital.



    Word reached India of the Hanging Gardens being built in the far away Arab city of Medina.



    In 800 BC New Bangalore was founded to close a gap in Indian territory.



    About this time, India's despotic government was overthrown and a new system, Feudalism, was introduced. India made more money under Feudalism and corruption was decreased.

    In 750 BC New Calcutta was founded as India's furthest east settlement.



    In 490 BC the city of New Lahore was founded in the jungle to the east of Delhi.

    Persepolis, Republic of Persia, 490 BC

    Xerxes was sitting in his palace when a messenger came bearing bad news. He reported that India had declared war on Persia and that Persian cities on the border were under great threat.



    Xerxes told the messenger, "We will prepare our army to meet them in battle. Our archers will rain death upon the Indians. I understand that you are scared but I have faith in our fighting men. India will not gain an inch of Persian land."

    "But Xerxes," said the messenger, "I was at Arbela, the Indians rode in on large beasts and trampled our soldiers. We had no answer for these beasts."



    And so began the Golden Age of India. While some civilizations' "golden ages" are characterized by scientific discovery or the construction of great monuments and buildings, India's golden age was characterized mainly by its exploits on the battlefield. In 490 BC India conquered its first foreign city, Arbela.



    Persia barely beat back an Indian attack on Sidon that same year.



    In 470 BC India attacked the city of Dariush Kabir with Infantry due to the mountainous terrain. Indian soldiers armed with bows and maces attacked the defenders but were unable to take the city. Casualties were high on both sides.



    Indian war elephants made short work of the defenders at Gordium that same year. The capture of this city was significant because Persian workers were captured and forced to work on building roads back to India. This began a dark chapter in Indian history, slavery had become part of the civilization.



    In 450 BC Sidon was taken.



    The Aztecs sent an emissary to India demanding that they give them their secrets of currency. Relations between India and the Aztecs since the war were not great, but they weren't the worst they could be. Gandhi politely declined. The Aztecs declared war on India once again. The Aztecs were a much more threatening force than Persia, especially since they used iron weapons. War elephants would immediately be sent down south to deal with this new threat.



    In 430 BC the city of Dariush Kabir was finally taken.



    Strangely, the Aztecs only sent a small force against India's southern towns during the first part of the war.

    As India needed to send soldiers to the Aztec front the Persian front stabilized. Gandhi decided to make peace with Persia in 370 BC in exchange for two of their cities and their entire treasury.



    Ghulaman was on an island and probably wouldn't be of much use for the foreseeable future.



    In 350 BC war elephants killed spearmen protecting Aztec settlers that were foolishly wandering through Indian territory.



    In 330 BC the Aztecs overwhelmed the outnumbered defenders of the canal town of Pune and captured it.



    In 290 BC the war elephants had finally arrived in large numbers to the Aztec front. The Aztec town of Tlalmanalco.



    In 270 BC India took the much larger town of Calixtlahuaca, which was an important town for the Aztecs due to the sources of Iron and furs nearby, though later India would learn that the Aztecs had more sources of both of these.



    250 BC saw the first and only naval battle of the war. Indian and Aztec galleys clashed in the Lake of Mexico and the Indian galleys prevailed despite being damaged and losing many sailors.



    India also recaptured Pune.



    Only to have the Aztecs recapture the town shortly afterwords. Elephants were powerful, but the Aztecs outnumbered India almost 10 to 1.



    In 210 BC India took the Aztec town of Tamuin.



    In 190 BC, India used it's navy to transport elephants across the lake of Mexico. Ixtapaluca was captured.



    In 170 BC, India took the large town of Atzcapotzalco.



    By this point, however, the Indian offensive had begun to run out of steam. The powerful Indian war machine was stretched thin. Gandhi decided that it was time for peace. The Aztecs were forced to give back Pune and give India two Aztec towns in exchange for peace.



    After peace was signed there was another expansion of Gandhi's palace.



    In 130 BC, the city of Ganges became the host for the Headquarters of the Knights Templar, an elite fighting force dedicated to protecting India from any future Aztec incursions.



    In 90 BC, 400 years after it began, it is generally accepted that the Indian golden age ended. In addition to its military conquests, India discovered engineering (and built bridges across all its rivers), invention, gunpowder (with the musket being developed near the end of the war), and chemistry.



    Before the golden age, India was a powerful civilization, but it was one of many on the continent. Persia was known for its culture, the Aztecs for their military might, and the Iroquois for their scientific knowledge. India had the largest population, but was simply average in everything else. It wasn't until India harnessed the power of the elephant for war that India truly became dominant.

    Salamanca, Iroquois Republic, 70 BC

    The ambassador finished his tour of the city. He looked upon the Great Library, perhaps the most famous building in the Iroquois Republic. He was an avid reader and was excited to get his hands on the Great Library's collection of books. That would have to come later, for now there was the task of getting the Indian embassy established.



    Gandhi's palace continued to expand.



    In 70 AD Gandhi met with his military adviser and his most trusted generals. They determined that the Aztecs, though weakened, were still had a large, powerful army. It was agreed that a preemptive war must be fought against the Aztecs. Another reason given for war was that the Aztecs had captured Indian workers in the last war and that the descendants of those workers were still in slavery. The war began with Elephants attacking Aztec spearmen on the border. Templar knights saw their first combat when they killed the swordsmen that were residing illegally in Indian territory. This was the beginning of the Third Aztec War, the first one that India initiated.



    In 90 AD elephants overwhelmed the defenders at Xochicalco.



    Texcoco was taken the same year.



    And elephants transported by galleys took Tlatelolco.



    Tired of Feudal lords opposing his push for war, Gandhi abolished the Feudal system and made himself absolute Monarch of India.



    In 110 AD Tzintzuntzen was captured.



    In 130 BC a Chinese General named Sun Tzu went to Babylon and published The Art of War. India had been vying for Sun Tzu to come to Delhi. Gandhi was disappointed.



    In 150 AD the Sistine Chapel was built in the Persian city of Psargadae.



    In 190 AD Indian slaves were liberated from the Aztecs.



    In the same year, an inventor named Leonardo Da Vinci came to Delhi. He was a jack of all trades but his real expertise was military technology.



    In 210 AD the Aztecs were dealt a major blow, they lost Teotihuacan, a major population center.



    Cempoala was taken in 230 AD.



    That same year, Aztec fortunes started to rise. They captured the town of Chalco, which had been given to India as part of a peace settlement.



    Then the citizens of Xochicalco revolted and killed the Indian garrison.



    In 270 AD the town was retaken. It was the first use of Indian cavalry armed with muskets.



    But shortly afterwords Teotihuacan and Tzintzuntzen revolted and re-joined the Aztecs.



    Aztec successes ended there. In 290 AD the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan fell to a combined army of elephants, cavalry, and crusaders.



    Tzintzuntzen was recaptured.



    That same year The Iroquois demanded that India give them contact with the Aztecs. When Gandhi refused, the Iroquois backed down.



    Gandhi's Palace was expanded yet again.



    In 310 AD Teotihuacan was recaptured.



    Gandhi decided after this to show mercy to the Aztecs, India was becoming overstretched and he had other plans. So he signed a peace treaty in which the Aztecs gave back Chalco, along with Tepexpan, the other town on the island, and their entire treasury. If any of these newly conquered cities revolted again, however, India would finish the Aztecs once and for all.

    It looks like you might have to wait a little bit longer:).
