While Leinster is uniting Ireland something disturbing happens across the irish sea. Rebels are picking apart Scotland. This is bad news because a 12 unit rebel army is too much for the Scots to handle and this will keep them from attacking England now they are weak.



England has its own share of rebellions. While this is good, it would have been better when Scotland could have taken this opportunity to slap England around a bit more.



We unite Ireland, apart from Meath. Scotland is still busy with the rebels, with Lothian under rebel control things are looking grim for them. This stinks cause I 'm too weak to take Meath alone and dragging Scotland in a war against England while rebels are burning their countryside will only make them an easy target for england.

So you obviously have to sit it out or so it looks from your description. What is there to do in the mean time?

At the time, there wasn't much I could do against England alone. I was hoping for the scots to break the rebels quickly. My backup plan was : colonise the Americas

Although Leinster isn't exactly moving forward, England is neither. Rebels are popping up and France is occupying england's overseas provinces. At least that buys me time.



And then my good friends Brittany decide to join the war. At first I think this is good news.



At first I thought I could wait for England to weaken and declare war or maybe get a lucky rebel defection in Meath. I was already supporting some the Meath rebels and I though I could wait for England to be really down to hardly any army before I'd declare war. Mostly hoping that Scotland would have it's rebel problem solved by that time so they could join in and keep england busy on it's home grounds. Then suddenly Brittany lands troops in Meath and my agent gets discovered to booth.




The agent being discovered is no biggie, Brittany besieging Meath is. If they occupy Meath I cannot occopy it any more unless I declare war on Brittany and England. That's not an option, Brittany is one of my few good friends and I need it to stay that way to deter England. After a few months the inevitable happens.



Brittany occupies Meath. I can forget about an Ireland united under Leinster rule for a while now. Time to focus on colonial expansion.

The Scots still have their rebel trouble. Only good news is the rebels wandered over to england now.

In the year 1451 a new heir is born. His stats aren't stellar but he'll do. Seems scotland has given in to rebel demands cause all the rebel occupancy suddenly disappears.



It seems the Scots are hellbent on joining the war against England and they declare war in april 1451. I;m not to happy with it. Scotland only has 6 stacks of units and so does Leinster. Rebels in england are marching around with stacks of 12 and they'll be hostile to us as well. Otoh, I have no other choice than to honour my alliance with the scots.



I can't take Meath, Brittany still occupies it, so I send my troops to England to try and take a province. It's a nervous affair, I'm breaking off sieges often to run from the rebels. England is building up in the meantime. Not good, not good at all.



Then my king dies in 1452 and we get a regency council. With our heir still wearing nappies this will be our last war for a while. Forget Meath, hope that this war with England ends quickly without any permanent damage to Leinster and totally focus on colonising.



And a lucky break. Scotland is war leader and they settle for a white peace with England in 1453

The new Leinster plan is

- Make friends to scare England
- Colonise America

While we're accumulating point for the Quest for the New World idea (needed for colonisation) we try and make some friends.

We ally Castille and Burgundy, two big nations with big armies.



Turns our Brittany doesn't like Burgundy so they cancel their alliance with us. That's fine, their army is puny compared to Burgundy's and Brittany is more likely to become an English target, dragging me into a war at a possibly inconvenient time.



Finally in october 1457 we get the quest for the new world!



Good news, we now can get conquistador and explorers that are necessary to push back the 'undiscovered land fog'. Leinster won't bother itself with petty European wars anymore, we're going to become a colonial superpower.

...well at least that is the plan......
