Sons of Carthage, Dominating North Africa

This part is mostly being opportunistic at expanding. Picking fights with the Iberian when they are distracted with their European affair and backstab Mamluks when they are losing to the Ottoman. Of course, raising development will be important because colonialism and printing press will never spawn at Tunis.

After having most of North Africa, Tunis will be ready to cross the Gibraltar Strait and invade the Iberian Peninsula.

PS: I took Defensive, Influence, Innovation, Offensive, Trade and Expansion idea group in order. I took defensive for its morale and attrition bonus. It will be great working with low pious in arid terrains. Influence will save diplo points when annexing vassals, and it gives extra bonus to my march. Innovation is for lowering war exhaustion and cheaper at adopting institutions. Offensive is for combat and sieging bonus. Trade for preparing to change main trading port at Genoa and finally Expansion is for getting into Central Africa. I had these ideas when I obtained the achievement. It may be slow but I do have more than 400 years to do it. There’s no need to rush, unless you want to do world conquest.

Alright, time to show these Portuguese who’s real boss of North Africa. Do you think I will afraid of your Iberian + South Italian Alliance?

20161126215208_1

Well, Portugal’s allies are strong, but just too distracted with their European affairs. Plus I can sink their ships individually.

20161127220520_1

Oh yeah, carry on, Castile you lost nothing

20161127224057_1

Meanwhile in the east, I managed to steal some Mamluks land while losing wars to the Ottoman inevitably

And I just wondered why Aragon disappeared

20161201003402_1

Cool, I can explore without exploration idea too?

20161201003703_1

Somehow, Austria is on my side this time. Time to kick the Portuguese out of North Africa!

20161201004244_1
