Shield Timurids.png
Shah Rukh is the supreme ruler of the Timurid Empire and the son of the great conqueror Timur.

Much has changed since the death of the Great Emir however, and his empire that once stretched from Anatolia to Delhi.

Shah Rukh has been able to keep most of Timur's empire together and patronized a thriving center of learning and arts in Herat, the pearl of Khorasan, but his reign is near its end and the aging ruler has fallen ill during the past year. In the outer provinces sons and grandsons are observing the court in Herat with great interest.

24px default Ajam under Muhammad bin Baysonqor is already independent in all but name. In Astarabad, Хорасан Хорасан, his brother Babur has built a small power base for himself, no doubt with the only goal to have a base in the coming succession struggles. Трансоксания Трансоксания, and Timur's own old capital Samarkand, has been left in the able hands of Ulugh Beg, son of our ruler and a great patron of the sciences and arts, while Фарс Фарс is in the hands of a 12 year old prince of the dynasty.

Meanwhile the Кара-Коюнлу Кара-Коюнлу Federation has taken over many of the western parts of Timur's original empire and in southern Iraq the millenarian Мушаша Мушаша have conquered Khuzestan and ousted the Timurid administrators from that region. The Узбеки Uzbeks are continually raiding our holdings in Transoxiana and our Indian governors have been ousted from Дели Дели.

As 1444 draws to an end the fate of the empire seems uncertain. Should Shah Rukh recover he may well rule for a number of years yet, but the tension is tangible, every son and grandson has been waiting for the moment of the emperor's death their entire lives…

In 1444, Timur Lenk (aka Tamerlane) is long dead, but the remnants of his empire still control the Persian heartland. The Timurids are a Sunni Iqta Empire. With Cradle of Civilization.png Cradle of Civilization, they follow the (unrecognized string “hanafi” for Template:Icon) Hanafi school. Their position gives them easy access to the formation of Великие Моголы Великие Моголы which they can do by conquering some of Дели Дели and Джаунпур Джаунпур's starting territories.

The Timurids' starting position is precarious due to the high variation of the frequent revolts. Uniting the empire will be difficult, but will allow the Timurids to become a major player in world politics due to its powerful starting position and its access to Muslim land units.

In the beginning of the game, the Timurids have many vassals : Трансоксания Трансоксания, Систан Систан, Афганистан Афганистан, Фарс Фарс and Хорасан Хорасан. When Shah Rukh dies, all the vassals will have an additional 55% liberty desire due to lost modifiers, so it's difficult to maintain control over them.

Missions[править]

Основная статья: Timurid missions

Timurid missions are mainly focused around conquering and vassalising its neighbours, Персия Персия in particular should it appear.

Events[править]

Timurid events primarily deal with the dislocation of the empire: Shah Rukh, the starting ruler of the Timurids, has a ruler modifier providing Liberty desire in subjects −50% liberty desire in subjects. When he dies, the powerful Timurid vassals, representing the various Timurid princes and governors, are very likely to rebel, partitioning Timur's empire.

Msg event.pngA Gathering Storm


The aging ruler of the Timurid Empire, Shah Rukh, has been ill since the beginning of 1444. In his absence his wife, Goharshad, had taken over the daily rule of the empire but this sign of weakness has set wheels in motion among the princes that rule the Timurid provinces.

In western Iran the young prince Muhammad Baysonqor, an ambitious grandson, has started to accept taxes and tokens of loyalty from a much larger region than his assigned governorate. Having finally recovered and learned of this insolence Shah Rukh has now declared Muhammad Baysonqor a rebell and is moving to strike at him at first opportunity.
If a civil war among all sons and grandsons, like that at the end of Timurs life, is to be avoided Shah Rukh knows he must strike down any sign of rebellion harshly and quickly.

Provinces in orange must be owned and cored to reform the Timurids. All of either the red or blue provinces must be owned and cored. Shaded provinces are permanently claimed after formation.

Decisions[править]

The Timurids, once establishing order among their disloyal vassals, are in an excellent position to form Великие Моголы Великие Моголы. This requires conquering most of Дели Дели, the country also gets Indian units which are better than Muslim (more fire pips), the country gets permanent claims on the entire Indian subcontinent, the country's rank is upgraded to empire, and finally the renamed country gets new and superior ideas and events. Alternatively, since they begin in the Altaic culture group, they could invade China and restore the 24px Юань dynasty, provided they switch to a Pagan or Eastern religion.

Strategy[править]

Early steps[править]

The Timurids are in a tough position at the start of the game. After the death of the initial ruler, all their vassals will turn rebellious. Any player wishing to succeed as the Timurids should tackle this internal problem first, or else will likely face disaster.

To make the vassals loyal, for the time being, pass the lenient taxation iqta modifier. This should make all the vassals drop below 50% liberty desire. The vassals can then be used to start the reconquest war against Ajam. The goal of this war is to take back as many cores as possible and exhaust the vassal's armies. This will decrease liberty desire of the vassals. While the war is going on, diplomats should work on improving relation with a potential ally, the vassals or fabricating claim on the next target - vassals in war can't declare independence. However, if they still have high liberty desire, they will not participate actively in the war apart from defending of their own land. By building up to force limit and taking the ajam cores back, the vassals should stay loyal should the Shah die. If Transoxiana is disloyal using prestige to placate them could be used to keep them in line. Continue waging war, each successful war will generate trust in your vassals which makes them more loyal to you. After ten years the player can start integrating the vassals. The vassals of which all lands hold Timurid cores will be annexed instantly. While the annexed vassal malus of -3 diplomatic reputation does not stack, the negative modifier of -30 on other vassals does stack. Once a few vassals have been annexed, the loyalty is no longer an issue.

Uzbeks have few Transoxiana's cores which can be conquered before annexing this vassal. Note that these cores are not timurid cores, which makes the annexation procedure no longer instant.

Another possible strategy for dealing with the vassals is to simply release them one at a time, until the remaining vassals are loyal. The player can then integrate the remaining vassals, and then reconquer the vassals that were released earlier on. This should not be too difficult, and is probably the most reliable starting strategy. If the player pursues this path, try not to release Transoxiana as they will be hard to beat later on, or Sistan as the player does not start with any cores on them.

When the vassals are under control and annexed, the player has a lot of choices. If the player is successful at this, the Timurids will be a strong regional power with potential to become one of the strongest countries. By conquering Delhi the Timurids can form the Mughals, who get strong national ideas, and missions to conquer much of India alongside extra bonuses for conquering culture groups. The player could also choose to go north and conquer the steppes of Asia, or go west to try to measure up to the Ottomans.

Good option is also not to rush to form Mughals but finish the Timurids missions providing permanent claims (if any remaining). Then after forming Mughals and completion of Pacify Punjab mission, Mughals get missions providing claims on Persia and central Asia steppes (Afghan Frontier and Abu Said's Dream). Best if the player push into the west to conquer Persia, Basra and Gulf of Aden trade nodes before Ottomans will do it. Not necessarily each province but rather as quickly as possible to conquer the provinces bordering with Allepo and Crimea trade node. And start to consume Arabia. Rest of the landlocked provinces can be conquered later as Ottomans won't be able to do it.

Allies and rivals[править]

The player should find a strong ally and sacrifice 1 dip point for exceeding the relations limit in the beginning of game. This will make Timurid's vassals less likely to declare independence war. Fortunately, the Timurids rarely have any problems securing allies as many nations around them start out with friendly attitude. Ideal choice are Ottomans which usually become a juggernaut quickly. They will be especially helpful in wars against Qara Qoyunlu and Mamluks. If the Ottomans are managed to remain a long time ally and their expansion into east is blocked, they will push into North Africa and mainly Europe. They can be used as an excellent battering ram against Russia and for increasing of warscore during wars with European colonizers or any nations buying provinces in Africa/Asia. In case Ottomans are losing their war, it is better to support them to turn warscore in their favor. Losing a war may result in a broken alliance and that can easily turn into rivalry. Fine ally might be also one of the hordes bordering Muscovy/Russia (e.g. Kazan or Great Horde), ideally a common ally with Ottomans. They will anyway need a help to cripple Russia during initial wars till they become strong enough to compete Russia alone. While expanding into southeast Asia, Tibet or Mongolia, the war against protector Ming is inevitable. If Russia is not blocked from expanding into Siberia, it is just a matter of time when both superpowers start to clash, so that is the time to declare war on one of them or on Ming's tributaries.

Trade[править]

While holding whole Persia trade node, only a little money will flow away from it (after Mughals forming, the player needs to move home trade port back to Persia). Timurids/Mughals will definitely need Trade idea group to be able to direct the trade from Basra, Gulf of Aden, Samarkand and India into Persia. An option is to push this strategy even further and conquer from Mamluks complete Red Sea coastline in Alexandria trade node. Ottomans will then not be able to colonize/buy provinces in India/Spice Islands due to huge range and disrupt player's invasion there. Samarkand is vulnerable even if holding most of centers of trade, thus conquering as much land as possible there is required in order to keep the trade flow into Persia secured. Conquest of inland Ethiopia should not be a priority. Mughals can instead keep there a vassal/march and feed it by the Ethiopian lands - e.g. sunni Funj or some of the Somalian sunni states. Conquest of Cape of Good Hope might be a more difficult task as it will require a war against one or more European colonizers. Conquest of Alexandria and keeping the trade power is too difficult as half of Europe usually steer trade from here. Thus much easier is to hold Gulf of Aden and Basra to steer trade to Persia and collect trade in Cape of Good Hope with using enough trade ships. Most of the wealth routed from India and Spice Islands can be then securely steered and collected and not much will reach Europe.

The later game depends a lot on what paths the player decides to follow, but often a strong rival appears to challenge the supremacy of the player, and it is important to not be unprepared when this happens. Likely rivals are Russia expanding in the north, or Ottomans to the west. The Player should have strong allies by this time, and/or a powerful military themselves.
