1447-1450 (T91)

Luzon: Diplomacy: None
Trade Partners: (6C) Mongol, Maori-Australia, Pandya, Aztec [25C], Franco-Inca [12C]

The Taira dispatched a fleet to the west.

Maori-Austral: The benefits of Inter-Ocean trade were extended to the Taira, Chinese, and Pandyans by the Will of the Sun-King.

Pandya: On the Persian Gulf, another Pandyan army invaded Carmania - discovering a wandering Taira fleet harboring there - and conquering it. The Taira were not disturbed.

1451-1454 (T92)

Luzon: Diplomacy: None
Trade Partners: (6C) Mongol, Maori-Australia, Pandya, Aztec [25C]

A very bizarre series of the Daimyo's pet projects were derailed by the simple refusal of his people to be dispossessed from their homes and sent into foreign lands. An attempt by the Taira to invade and seize Okinawa was cancelled by the Maori ambassador who politely pointed out that Okinawa was Maori property and had been for some time. Events in the Mid-East met with similar disaster...

Jalayrids: The Japanese fleet landed at Kuwait and evacuated a number of high Jalayrid nobles and relatives of the Sultan, but was unable to rescue more due to the fact that they had no room upon their somewhat cramped fleet. Khemeni, meanwhile, had gathered his few remaining retainers together and had determined to escape to the promised safety of the Japanese fleet. When Khemeni did not reach the rendezvous at Kuwait, the remaining nobles chose one of their own, Resa Pahlavi, to be the Sultan.

Syria: Continuing its voyage, the Japanese expedition sailed up Necho's Canal and docked at Cairo - where the brightly caprisoned Samurai made a big hit with the local nobles. Orders were placed for a number of cannon at the Follet factory, but the lack of space aboard the fleet again prevented the Japs from making off with the goods.

1455-1458 (T93)

Luzon: Diplomacy: None
Trade Partners: (6C) Mongol, Maori-Australia, Pandya, Aztec [25C], Inca [12C]

Luzon: Diplomacy: Mori(f), Oda(f), Mutsu(f)
Trade Partners: (6C) Mongol, Maori-Australia, Pandya, Aztec [25C], Inca [7C]

The Japanese heralded the return of their expeditionary fleet and declared a "Fleet Day" to be marked by the discharge of cannons and fireworks.

1463-1466 (T95)

Luzon: Diplomacy: Hokkaido(f)
Trade Partners: (8C) Mongol, Maori-Australia, Pandya, Aztec [25C]

The Japanese continued to mess about in boats and make sake.

Mongol Empire: Unknown assassins attempted to off the God-Emperor, but they failed horribly thanks to the vigilance of the Tvarchedl. A number of Taira spies were also arrested, but they did not seem to have been involved in the plot.

1467-1470 (T96)

Luzon: Diplomacy: None

The Taira raised a city, Nagi, on the Chaosen Hai coast of Mori. Quite a number of Maori and Mongol agents were apprehended by the ever-vigilant Kagamushei.

1487-1490 (T101)

Luzon: Diplomacy: None
Trade Partners: (12+0C) Mongol, Maori-Australia, Pandya, Aztec [25C]

The elder Shogun, Chang-sing, died and was sent to Buddha amid the rising smokes of a thousand mourning fires and the exposition of Taira military might in games to celebrate the rise of the Shogun Jaita to the rulership of the isles. A new city, Chaisa, was raised on the SE coast of Hokkaido. Jaita was displeased to notice that Nagi in Mori had sprawled past its walls and they were in disreputable shape. A few Mongol sympathisers were rounded up and deported.
