Age of Glory (reboot): 1500 alt history rp OOC/Signups

Postby The Ik Ka Ek Akai » Sun Feb 16, 2014 1:24 pm

In 1453, Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Turks, marking a new war between the Muslims and the Christians in the East. In 1493, Christofo Colombo brought tales of a new world to Spain, and others were quick to catch on. France, Spain, England, Portugal, Toulouse, Morocco and Brittany are preparing to discover and explore this new world for themselves. The Ottomans have reached the Austrians before being halted. The Holy Roman Empire continues to rule in Germany, and has a heavy influence over the Papal State. In the East, The Ming Empire has spread far and wide after overthrowing their Mongolian overlords. Japan has been united under the Fujiwara clan's conquests in 1394. The Sassanid Persians are preparing for total war. Much has happened, but now with a new world in sight, much will change.

Welcome to the Age of Glory alternate history rp. Starting in 1495, you will be able to take control of one of many historical countries and guide them throughout history!

APP EXAMPLE
This is my (the OP's) app, and it will, hopefully, assist those confused about how to make a proper app. Note: I will be using parentheses to denote rebels vs. the national stats.

Nation name: Byzantine Hellenic zealot rebels (Byzantium/Byzantine Empire)

Ruler: Athena Mytilinaikos

Religion: Hellenism

Population: 10,000 rebels (5,000,000 in Greece)

Military Numbers: 10,000 rebels (100,000 in Greece, 2%)

Main focus: reconvert Byzantium to a Hellenic state

History of your nation: Named after the Thracian city of Byzantion, the Byzantines were formed when the Roman Empire split into East and West. The Eastern Roman Empire, with their capital in Byzantion, renamed Constantinople, lived alongside the Western Roman Empire for two more centuries until the fall of Rome. Though the Western Romans fell, the Eastern Romans continued to prosper. That, however, was only the start of the Byzantine legacy.

As the world advanced into the Medieval Era, Byzantium was static until the conquests of Justinian I. Byzantium would continue to grow and prosper as the center of learning and civilization for the first half of the Middle Ages. In 1077, a Seljuk Turk founded an independent Sultanate in Anatolia, known as the Sultanate of Rum, meaning Rome. The Fourth Crusade provided what might be considered a final blow. The Venetians led an attack against the weakened Byzantium, and split it into three states, with crusader lands becoming the Latin Empire. Byzantium never recovered from this, and was eventually pushed into the borderlands of its former territories.

Religion: Roman Catholic

Population: ~850,000

Military Numbers: 1%** (8,500)

Main focus: The expansion of Christianity over the world, consolidation of Central Italy under the rule of the Pope

History of your nation: The Papal States started as a default position for the people of Rome. After the a failed attempt by the Byzantines in the 6th century to conquer Italy, the Pope was the largest landholder in Central Italy. With the support of the people, the Popes took secular control of Central Italy in order to keep the Lombards from expanding. Later, with the help of the French, the Papacy managed to crush the Lombards and gain control of the some of the lands formerly controlled by Byzantium. Political troubles in Rome and the various lands under Papal control forced the Papacy to live in France for a short time.

Soon enough, the absentee Papacy recognized it waning power in central Italy and moved towards military conquest. Cardinal Egidio Albornoz then lead a mercenary army with the support of the Duke of Milan and reconquered the lost Papal lands. Though much of the Papal States was still contested, the Constitutiones Sanctæ Matris Ecclesiæ was written and the Law of the Papal States was established, legitimatizing the secular rule of the Pope.

Recently, the Pope is still directing armies of mercenaries to put down the prince-states that spring up within the Papal States and is mostly concerned with the consolidation of Roma

**The Swiss Guard are to be considered separate from the normal troops of the Papacy and only get involved in battles in which the Pope is involved personally. They number 150 and are very much the exemplars of quality-over-quantity. They will come into existence in 1505 at the latest. The Papacy still needs to write the contract with the Swiss confederation for a permanent Swiss Guard currently, and, until they are made, any Swiss mercenaries are to be considered the same as any other mercenary force.

His lineage of grand princes would extend Moscow's borders under many conquests and wars, as well as strengthen its infrastructure. The Mongols, however, remained a threat. The grand prince Ivan I established closer relationship with the Golden Horde, allowing the Grand Duchy of Moscow to stay sovereign in their lands, without the threat of Mongol attack. Afterwards, Ivan became one of the richest people in the Rus', and began to influence the Novgorod Republic.

After the reign of Ivan I, both Dmitri Donskoi, Vasily I, and Vasily II would undertake conquests to expand Moscow's borders, becoming nearly dominant in the Rus'. After their lengthy conquests, the ruler Ivan III (the Great) would come to power as the Grand Prince of Moscow. As Grand Prince, he forced the Rurikid princes to acknowledge his own claim to the Grand Duchy, and eventually gained more and more lands within the Rus'. Tensions rose with the Golden Horde as Moscow became larger and larger, and eventually began to set its sights on the entirety of the Rus'. As of now, the Grand Duchy's main goal is to gain sovereignty in all of Slavia.

The Romans conquered it in 19 BC and was held by the Romans until 409 when the Vandals, Visigoths, Suevi, and the Alans. for around 200 years these people fought until the Visigoths conquered the entire peninsula and expelled the Alans. Then the Muslim Berbers landed in 711 and conquered all of Iberia too and they still hold some of it in the south for this AH.

Then for many years the Christians and Muslims fought until Morocco had been pushed far into the south and in 1095 they broke away from Galicia but became a vassal of Leon. Around the end of the 11th century a Burgundian duke fought for independence while Leon and Castile were in a civil war.

Sweden's medieval history starts during the viking age. Like most Scandinavians at the time, the Swedes were either vikings or being raided by vikings. This led to no centralized government.
More chaos ensued when the black plague swept the country, killing many. After this, Sweden was controlled by several Danish rulers. Finally, in the early 1400s, Sweden became independent.

History of your nation: Became a recognised political entity during the Roman Empire when the familiar borders seen after this point are formed. During the collapse of the Roman Empire the kingdom of England was one of the first places to form out of the old empires borders due to it being so far away from roman and its isolation as an island. However its fell to the Misfortune of the dark ages and the Germanic invaders/settlers unlike Scotland which became a hotbed of philosophy and science. Then the plagues hit and England, like most European powers was left decimated, the only comfort was knowing that no other country was in a position to invade either. After that we had the hundred war with France and then the war of the roses over the crown which was won surprisingly by the Breizh Celtic king, Edwane. Neither the house of Lancaster or York had taken the throne and Britain was experiencing a Celtic revival.

But now times are changing, the outbreaks are becoming fewer and fewer and the population is beginning to recover. And yet the politics of Europe continue, further to be complicated by the discovery of the new world and the beginning of colonialism.

History of your nation: (1-2 paragraphs, please)The Duchy of Brittany was under threat. In 1335 France declared war on the Autonomous duchy of Brittany to have Brittany on their territory. But they were miraculously repelled by the Breton forces. The Breton Army then pushed forward France until they reached the outskirts of Paris. The King of France then asked for peace, they will give Duke Edward Money In exchange for withdrawal of Forces in the conquered provinces. Duke Edward III said that he does not care for money, He said that he will withdraw forces only if France lets go of Brittany. The King of France accepts the offer & recognizes Brittany as an Independent state. The Kingdom of Brittany was formed with King Edward I as the first king of Brittany.

In 1415 France once again declared war on brittany. The war was short lived, it only lasted for 3 months because the King of France was assassinated by Breton spies. The Heir, now King of France offered peace to Brittany, with Brittany gladly accepting the peace offer. In 1490 a Breton sailor discovered a new land westward of Brittany.

[quote="Reatra";p="18977486"]Nation name: Great Ming

Religion: Confucianism and Buddhism. Both fully accepted. Very few Muslims, fewer Christians, now enough to make a difference.

Population: Well... Ming now had like 120 million... With all that crazy land... Though its not super fertile... Maybe 185 million?

Military Numbers: Quality. I have no shortage of troops, like ever. So I'll focus in training and discipline. I guess a standing force of 220,000. Split into armies of eleven thousand standing guard mainly on the northern border. Not too many to allow for MASSIVE trade and economy, but still a crap-load. Could raise up to half a million in half a year though, and twice that in a year and a half. But past that I see no point, I mean over a million freakin troops defending their homeland.

Main focus: Trade and colonization (not like Spain, but like Portugal or the Netherlands, strategic trading posts and colonies. Like Singapore, which will be first in the list.

History of your nation: In 1369, the Ming overthrew the Yuan dynasty of Mongol invaders. They continued the exploration and overseas trade policies, but the rest was spent replanting ancient Chinese culture back into the minds of the people. Korea was allied with and a royal marriage soon followed. Emperor Dau I restarted the tributary policy in Asia. Now many minor Asian nation provide tribute to Great Ming for protection and for not being conquered. Korea is actually a close vassal and their royal family is completely intertwined with that of Ming.

By 1444, Taiwan was opened up to Ming settlement though it is still not fully colonized, progress is being made and the natives, already very Chinese compared to other foreigners, are easily being assimilated. Now, with Emperor Ru, it is known that trade, colonization, and prosperity will be known throughout the Celestial Empire of the Great Ming!

History of your nation: Romania is on the maps of Europe for a relatively short period of time, but the nation can track it's history back to the brave Dacians that used to fight the Romans, and even defeat them in a war.Dacia lost the second war to Rome, and as a consequence, it became a Roman province.Even if for a short period of time, the Roman blood remained strong in Dacia, and now, after more then a 1000 years, Dacia, under it's legendary ruler that had ties with even the Holy Roman Empire, took the name of Romania, to further show the entire world that the Vlachs are the successors of Rhomania, of the Byzantine Empire that has vanished.This country and it's people now more then never need someone to lead them against the invading Hungarians and to protect them from the muslims.Let all those who oppose the Voievode Vlad join the forest of the impaled.

Thats how the Serbian Despotate formed.

Afterwards, Stephen's son and future Despot was arrested by Byzantine Authorities. This was the first in a series of his family members being captured. During this time, he became a vassal of Hungary and eventually liberated all of his family. Afterwards, he was forced to become an Ottoman Vassal again and give part of Serbia to his brother, Vuk. Thankfully, eventually Stefan was able to annex Vuk's lands. The Ottomans attacked but were defeated by Stefan, and with Hungarian help, he took Serbian-Bulgaria and formed the current Serbian Despotate.

Ruler: Koning Gerroelt XIII

Military Numbers: 49,000

Main focus: Diplomacy & expansion into the new world

History of your nation: In 1452, the provinces of Holland, Zeeland, Groningen, Friesland, Utrecht, Overijssel, and Gelderland formed a confederation after declaring independence from the H.R.E. All these provinces were autonomous and had their own government, the "States of the Province". The King was seated in The Hague and the Parliament consisted of representatives from each of the seven provinces.

During the subsequent war of independence with the H.R.E., lasting from 1452-1458, King Braam VI was baptized into the Orthodox church as a bid to draw power and support from the largely Orthodox east to defend itself from the Catholic H.R.E. After winning the war, preacher and Gouverneur of Holland Filip Jaanneef Brockksen started a movement to replace the monarchical system with a democratic one. In 1464, King Braam VI stepped down from his throne, giving way to a loose union of provinces united under a flag. The States-General, the confederal government, was placed in The Hauge, and consisted of representatives from each of the seven provinces. The sparsely populated region of Drenthe, mainly consisting of poor peatland, was part of the kingdom too, although Drenthe was not considered one of the provinces; it had its own States, but the landdrost of Drenthe was appointed by the States-General. In 1496, 4 years after Italian explorer Christoffel Colombo landed in India, the Dutch, hearing of the riches and slaves existing there, set up an expedition to find and return riches from India. 1 year after, there has been no word from the expedition.

In 1403 The House of Syracuse overthrew the Previous royal family when they failed to have a successor to the Throne and Alfonso I of Syracuse took the throne putting the House of Syracuse back in power for the first time since the 1300's. They immediately began working on relations with the other Italian states, namely the Papal States and Sicily. In 1406 A royal Marriage between Prince Alfonso II of Syracuse and Princess Maria of Sicily. When King Fredrick III of Sicily died, the throne fell to his son, but in 1417 he died of Measles after one of his speeches. With no one in direct line to the throne, the throne was passed on to Prince Alfonso II of sicily. When King Alfonso I of sicily died the line of succession gave Prince Alfonso II the right to both the Sicilian and Neapolitan throne, so he united them, calling it the Kingdom of the two Sicilies.

In 1435 the Sardinian Navy began seizing Neapolitan trade goods and in May 1436 the Neapolitans invaded Sardinia who had the support of the then existent Genoa. Eventually they Beat the Genoese Navy off the coast of San Vito and invaded Cagliari. After eight days of siege the Sardinian Garrison surrendered and the Kingdom of Two Sicilies annexed it seeing it as a useful trading point. The Genoese eventually accepted defeat and the War ended on June 8th 1438. Now with Sardinia in its possession it began investing in trade, namely its markets across the coastlines of its territories, building large seaports and state owned markets. They Profited off of this trade and eventually began to compete with the Venetians in trade. After Alfonso II of Syracuse died in 1455, King Simone I took power. He Instituted a major drift toward quality in the military and navy, investing more money on less men and constructing more fortifications such as the Fortezza di Napoli Fortezza di Taranto Fortezza di Palermo Fortezza di Salerno, and Fortezza di Cagliari. When he died in 1492 his 32 year old son Lucius I of Syracuse took the throne promising a grander and greater kingdom.



State culture: Neapolitan and Sicilian. Sardinian is accepted.

[quote="True Happines";p="19058413"]Nation name: The Songhai Empire

Ruler: Mansa Sonni Muhammad

Religion: Sunni Islam

Population: 10 000 000 (I searched for the population of Western Africa around the year 1500, and it was 11 000 000, so I'll make it 10 000 000 for Songhai [ Morocco isn't included in western africa at least not in this case])

Military Numbers: 100 000 1% Songhain Militia and much more mercenaries from Europe and the muslim countries to lessen the current technological disadvantages.

Main focus: To subdue more of the african tribes in the west and south, to preserve relations with Europe and the Muslim world, to promote trade with the europeans.

History of your nation: As the Songhain soldiers gather to leave for the Jihad, a sad message was delivered to them: the Emperor had been poisoned! It was one of those miltant pagans, but praise Allah the assassin was killed. The Emperors distant cousin, Sonni Muhammad is chosen as the next ruler of the Songhai Emperor. Sonni Muhammad decided to style him Mansa of the Songhai Empire. The Mansa then stops the Songhain soldiers from participating in the Jihad at least for now, and starts to make plans of his own.

State culture: Mande

Other:

Songhai does control the major areas for slave trade, so it could become rich by trading slaves to the europeans, especially when the europeans start building colonies in the New World. And Songhai does have gold, ivory and salt too. So slaves, gold, ivory and salt, a pretty good set for trade and gaining money/wealth.
The Army consists of of course Songhain militia, but also european and muslim elite mercenaries, which would provide the needed protection. Also, if the europeans would invade Songhai, they would have to transport their armies to Africa first, and besides the home advantage, the Songhain Army could wear the europeans armies off with attrition, you know the tropical temperature is quite the killer for 15th century soldiers who aren't used to it.[/quote]

Is the start date 1495?

Edit (Dated: 3/16/14): This is still open people. We really need people to play the Muslim Nations. Or any Far Eastern place would be great. Hell, doing a tribe in the Americas would be fine! Seriously though, we are still open.

Nation name: Scotland.

Ruler: William de Haya.

Religion: Roman Catholic.

Population: 500,000.

Military Numbers: 6,500.

Main focus: Maintaining our right to self rule and expansion of our trade networks.

History of your nation: In it's early years, Scotland was very little than a dream, these lands were divided between conflicting clans, struggling for control over minuscule territories, however, despite this - Scotland has persevered, fending off enemies who believed themselves superior, technologically and numerically, among them, the English, Norwegians and Danish. All of whom had been driven from these lands. For Scots have never been submissive, they have been faced with conflict and hardship their entire history and refuse to be put down by their more powerful foes.

However, not all has been bad for Scotland - it is a land of much beauty and an abundance of resources. It also has close cultural and social bonds with nations such as - France and Ireland, who have stood by them for centuries against their mutual nemesis, the English. (Apologies for the shortness of this history, as I'm writing it on an IPad and I'm not quite sure what you wished for me to include, as Scotland's history is incredibly long and diverse.)

Nation name: Grand Duchy of Moscow

Ruler: Ivan III the Great

Religion: Russian Orthodoxy

Population: 4,000,000~?

Military Numbers: 50,000~ trained soldiers, large amounts of peasants able to be conscripted.

Main focus: Claim all of Slavia.

History of your nation: Formerly and insignificant trading post, it was burned down by the Mongols in 1238. Afterwards, the Grand Duchy of Moscow was formed under Daniel I, who died in 1303. His lineage of grand princes would extend Moscow's borders under many conquests and wars, as well as strengthen its infrastructure. The Mongols, however, remained a threat. The grand prince Ivan I established closer relationship with the Golden Horde, allowing the Grand Duchy of Moscow to stay sovereign in their lands, without the threat of Mongol attack. Afterwards, Ivan became one of the richest people in the Rus', and began to influence the Novgorod Republic.

After the reign of Ivan I, both Dmitri Donskoi, Vasily I, and Vasily II would undertake conquests to expand Moscow's borders, becoming nearly dominant in the Rus'. After their lengthy conquests, the ruler Ivan III (the Great) would come to power as the Grand Prince of Moscow. As Grand Prince, he forced the Rurikid princes to acknowledge his own claim to the Grand Duchy, and eventually gained more and more lands within the Rus'. Tensions rose with the Golden Horde as Moscow became larger and larger, and eventually began to set its sights on the entirety of the Rus'. As of now, the Grand Duchy's main goal is to gain sovereignty in all of Slavia.

State culture: Russian/Slavic

I must agree with this. The source I sited states that 3,000,000 were in the British Isles combined, which means it's split between Scotland, England, Wales, and Ireland. The majority will be in England, and Scotland was never a very populous region.




The Scottish history is fine, it shows that you know what you're doing with it.

Also, the region is controlled by the Teutonic order. You can, if you wish, make Latvian rebels who wish to become independent.
