    (Hah! Grabbed your attention once more!)

    This is the Rogue-Guided Empire Total War thread. We shall be playing as The United Provence's!

    The Global situation is as follows. We have our Capital in Europe, two (if not three) Locations on the North Coast of South America, and control an Island off the coast of India. We are rather spread out and our budget must be limited between all of these places.

    It is doubtful that we will be able to focus in all three sectors at once, so we will have to decide where to focus first.

    Before deciding on anything else, I suggest securing trade agreements with as many countries as possible. First go after the Maratha Confederacy, as well as the Mughol Empire, then suecure as many of the richest nations as trade partners! Some countries may want you to pay a sum of cash for the agreement. If you spend the money first you will end up with unused trade resources.

    The United Provinces should be a fun choice. I will be quite curious if any of the countries try a naval invasion on you (since the new patch supposedly allows AI to do this).

    Would the Pirates try grabbing one of your provinces early?

    I do agree that it would be very profitable to get trade established early with other countries. It probably would also be good to get some ships gathering resources in the trade field.

    From what I remember it is doggone tough keeping the people happy but if it were me I'd start picking on India. I've not played in a while but there are 2 provinces which are not likely to gather much backlash which aren't Mughal or Marantha.

    I would vote India 1st but at least keep some navy in the America's.

    Actually, I vote America first.

    Britain, Spain, and France must be contained, but the Maratha Confederacy is constantly at odds with the Mughals, and they sort of fight each other to a standstill.

    Try taking over New Spain. War with Spain would have them concentrating on your European province, which hopefully is well defended. Besides, your foothold in American is weaker than your foothold in India, so it would be best to expand in that area.

    And, like mike said, it's a good idea to establish trade with both countries and yellow anchors.

    Come on guys, lets stay on topic for once.

    I've got 7500 to spend and have given you the options, unless you want to recruit some units. You rogues need decide what course of action to take, where to focus, etc.

    Why don't you spend all 7500 in America? Throw up some nicer buildings, trade the spears for guns, and put some weapons on your ships? You need an early start down there!

    I am going to request this thread be closed, as you people clearly don't understand its purpose.

    Mods - whomever may be on - please close this thread.

    I suggest building the Gem Pit in Dutch Guyana first. I agree that the America’s should be the main focus of conquest. I would place an emphasis on first destroying the pirate havens in the Caribbean before they can get too strong. They should be able to be beaten by simple militia units, which are cheap and expendable.

    Your Caribbean fleett should be within range of a pirate fleet to start the game. You force should be just enough to defeat them. If possable, save yourself some money in the long run and capture as many of those ships as possible
