Incan Events Prior Westernization

As first time playing the Inca in EU4, their Inti religion has interesting events and Paradox is doing very well in simulating Incan history. At first, Cusco is a small state and eventually became the enormous Inca Empire through conquest and leadership. Then massive internal conflicts from religious reform and civil war weakened the empire. Also, smallpox from the European led Inca’s manpower decreases. In another word, people are just dying from civil wars and disease. Inca eventually became a large empire with little manpower, that’s what it is in history.

I’d give an A+ to Paradox on simulating this part of history. I learned some about royal/holy marriage incest of the Sapa Inca and Incan religion through this. And glad the European only invaded me after I recovered from the manpower loss.

Authority is the game mechanic that unlocks religion reform. Player will need to get 100 authority for reforming. As soon as player reforms, player will get that bonus and then rebels break out and the authority falls back to 0. It will need to be done 5 times totally. Afterward, if player has total tech level of 18 or bordering a western tech group nation, player can reform again to admin, diplo and mil technology levels will be level 8 and able to unlock two idea groups. Authority can be received from events or taking away autonomy from provinces. As authority gives -unrest bonuses, it is worthy enough to take them away without fearing of rebellion at that moment.

PS: This post is going to be heavily on pictures, and some are repeated like the European smallpox event and religious reform events. My point is that they don’t just occur once.

This is second day of the game, foreshadowing the rise of Cusco

Even you don’t build it, your first national idea will be Machu Picchu too

You may not like your spouse but it can help the empire on getting authority, development and reform religion an Westernize quicker. So please consider the macro scale.

20160521195654_1

Come on, who would choose this option?

20160521195656_1

Both options give temple

20160521202443_1

Rebels are willing sacrifice for authority

20160521203846_1

When loving your sibling means totally different thing

20160521203914_1

Yes, you can marry your sister

20160521235023_1

After this, people will be quiet.

This gambling event will continue happening after westernization, like spend money for stability if success, or just lost some prestiege

20160522004906_1

For the wealthy Inca, this money ain’t problem

20160522011816_1

I will need naval power eventually

20160522012700_1

This is what happen when reformed, you get bonus and rebels, and 4 more time!!

20160522144822_1

This only happened once

20160522145123_1

Take my money and admin point away, just give me authority, they are the cure for everything

20160522153142_1

Trust me, you’ll love these temporary boost. It will be continue happening throughout the game, it is  like these new royal guards and nobles are fighting for your attention

20160522153528_1

Oh well…. it only happened once and can give bonus

20160522160928_1

More reforms!!

20160522161139_1

One of the five reform bonus gives a colonist, you will love and hate him because he can deal with these unsettled land but incredibly slow and costs 2.1 ducat per month 

20160522162329_1

More temporary boost

20160522162507_1

You attention whores….

20160522163907_1

gimme stability

20160522164353_1

That just sick, look at that unrests

20160522164459_1

THIS IS A TRAP!!! A good trap thought

20160522164525_1

Should I feel annoyed by how many times I need to click?

20160522164724_1

Better not be a trap, I still have rebels around

20160522165018_1

Here comes the ultimate civil war, supporting either one gives a great Sapa Inca, but both spawn massive rebels and if surrender, you’ll have a noob Sapa Inca. So just stick it up and kill all rebels

20160522165447_1

Finally something nice

20160522165917_1

Plotting with 6k troop? That’s brave and annoying

20160522170143_1

Should I thank these Europeans for lowering my unrest?

20160522170226_1

I might just slow down a bit since noble rebels are quite strong.

20160522174320_1

Glad too see, and now feel really emptied, low manpower and debt. A good rest can fix these

20160522175911_1

Love thy neighbor, they will give you stability

20160522180740_1

Happened once, I chose religion group because it is very expansive for Inca to raise stability, but for tech cost discount, totally worth it.

20160522191508_1

You better be lasting till the game ends

20160522223351_1

More reforms, of course I didn’t screenshot all of them, but that’s what you will be expecting every time you reform 

20160523172640_1

Is it a trap?

20160523172706_1

Nope, that’s great

20160523173807_1

I think this one is during westernization or right after it? The process took a while thanks to the Andes Tech group and starting a short climate change

So that’s the events I screenshoted and they may change in the future patch based on how Paradox is going to change this alternative history simulation game.
