Aha, somebody wants to help out with my general lack of generals.
To the nodes!
Miyoshi have missed their chance for a quick strike on Tosa - now I have a full stack in there.
My ninja gives me a look at what's still at Awa. Basically everything they have.
Ok, so it's time to go on the offensive again.
Nodes nodes nodes, looking for a good time
Approaching Miyoshi territory.
Form sounds nice.
Bit of a trade bonus never goes amiss.
Send my metsuke first, then he can keep order in my newly captured province.
HaHaHa, eat this Miyoshi
Superior stone is what it's all about..
Time to back it up.
And my ninja can cause them some trouble while I approach.
The mighty Chosokabe invasion force waits on the border.
It occurs to me that I might be able to solve my Daimyo problem. Why didn't I think of this before?!
This is where I learn the ultimate truth I've been searching for all these years: Miyoshi are campers
Some hippies arrive at Tosa in a floating bathtub bearing trinkets, beads and string. They smell like patchouli oil and the Daimyo's wife is not impressed with their beards and grubby sandals.
Send them away! Dirty hippies...
Hold on, someone has left the camp!
That was dumb.
Camping Miyoshi suffer unusual accidents.
And while they camp out at Awa, I waltz round the back and take that other place.
Another guy joins the party.
C'mon you campers, come and get it.
tum te tum
Hold on a minute, didn't they call my woman a woman for asking for peace? Stick it, campers!
A welcome break in the form of a trade agreement with those weirdos the Ikko Ikki
(srsly, what's wrong
Mastery of Form is essential to a balanced life.
Finally I get sick of the Miyoshi campers and besiege Awa.
And eventually they grow a pair and come out to face me.
This battle is long and hard fought. Zim does well with his light cav and butchers many of my archers. The arrival of my reinforcements settles the day but I suffer heavy losses.
Not sure these guys have heard of Pyrrhus, but they get the idea I guess.
Miyoshi, where did your bravado go?
