Yes.

1. The Mahdi. The Mahdi is a religious figure in Islam, and a man claiming to be him quickly gaining power lends credibility to this claim, undermining Persian morale.

2. Ferdy actively did stuff to undermine Persian morale.

3. Ferdy's still small, and more importantly, this gives him a seaport, enabling him to interact with other players for once.

4. China was underpowered when I made it - I was just correcting a previous mistake. The morale boost was flavor to make that stat-editing have a reason.

Oh OK. Fair enough. It just makes conquering China that much harder and tedious. I mean, I dont even have any opposition to the war! WHY IS NO-ONE CONDEMNING MY WARMONGERING ACTIONS?!?!

If you're going to make a grab for the western regions, make sure you send in orders - and good luck getting there before the Mahdi does.


incredible what a bit of messing here and there does :twisted: :twisted:

The mahdi claims the WHOLE of Persia and will be assisting the residents of the west in regaining stability

The mahdi offers the deserted army to join his cause and will pay them at the base rate, with a bonus of an EXTRA 10G (per unit) for the first turn

China, under severe attack which threatens to capture the entire country, gets a morale and stat boost.


Also, IRL, different cultures on country populations react differently to stuff. Can't say all things need to act exactly the same in all situtations.

2 infantry and a cavalry, the remnants of the Persian army, will join you. The remainder of Persia will be annexed in July, and will generate revenue for your country in that month.

The Mahdi moves troops into western Persia to prevent its annexation by foreign powers, and moves other forces into Saudi Arabia to conquer it. The tribes in the area are beginning to form groups to resist the "unification".

Unification*

We do not invade our own we allow them to be themselves!

The Mahdist troops are facing slight resistance in their war of "unification". Pressing in from the coast, they face irregular troops that hamper their progress.

The tribes of the region ask for international assistance, monetary or military, so they may better resist the incursions of the Mahdi.
