    Summer 1530
    1000 Koku
    -------------

    My plan is to make an alliance with the uesugi and conquer Izu in the first few turns.
    First, I set the taxes to 110%.
    I start building a mine in Aki.
    I train 60 sam. archers in Kai.

    I want to keep things quiet in Aki until I got at least one fighting dojo there, so I don't attack the rebels.
    In the east, I suspect Hojo is going to attack Uesugi in Musashi, so I don't need to worry about them. The rebels in Shinano and the Imagawa in Suruga don't have big armies, so I don't pay attention to them either. I decide to attack Izu, I go with my Daimyo, 120 cav. archers and 60 yari cav.

    **************Attack on Izu*************
    I outnumber them, it's 191 to 60.
    Because of my cav. archers, I want to attack with good weather, but light rain was the best I could get.

    I kept my Daimyo and yari cav. behind the archers, and sent the archers to the flanks. His 60 men appeared to be yari sam., an easy prey for my archers.
    After several minutes of 'Hit and Run' tactiks, they have 30 men left and they are marching at the end of the map, on his side, so he doesn't have to flee very long. I know that when I win, the rest of his men die, because there is nowhere to go. (kai, suruga and sagami are possessed by clans) So I don't take great risks. At a certain moment, he charges in at one of my units of archers, so I let them retreat, but not too fast, so that they will keep chasing me. Meanwhile I braught in my yari cav., and I place them behind his unit. When he started the charge on my archers, I let my yari cav. attack. As soon as my cav. charged in at the yari's I let the archers also charge in. Being attacked from two sides and outnumbered, the enemy flees right away. In the heat of the fight 5 of his men escape, but not his general, who's killed.

    I won it: 0 losses 55 kills.
    ********************************************

    Because I just conquered Izu, I set the tax back to 100%.
    I don't have much money, so I only train 60 ashis in Kai.
    I retreat most of my troops to Kai, because Kai is more important and Hojo hasn't attcked Uesugi.

    We had a good season, but still not much money.
    359 Koku
    -------------------------------------------

    There didn't happen much in this turn.
    My emissary has arrived in Kozuke, Uesugi's HQ, I let him ask the lord for an alliance.
    The hojo army is growing, I need more men too, I train 60 yari sam. in Kai.

    That's about it, on to the next season.

    The Uesugi lord has accepted my alliance, I send my emissary to Shinano to spy and see if I should attack it.
    Hojo has trained men again and has a pretty large army now, he has become a real thread. I hope he get's in war with Uesugi, when he's weakened once, he can forget ever possessing sagami again.
    The Imagawa lord asked me for an alliance, and I accepted it. It can never hurt to have friends, and I want to concentrate on Shinano and Sagami now.
    I train 60 ashi's in Kai again, hehe, don't have money left after that.
    I looked at the map when I was in the throneroom, I'm the only one who has conquered a region already, going well. :)

    I haven't played further, I will do now, C yall later!

    The mine in Aki is finished now, it'll start paying off in two seasons.
    I decide to attack the rebels in Bingo, which are 60 men. I attack with 60 cav. archers and 60 yari sam, both honour 1.

    I don't have money for new units or buildings.
    I don't know who I will attack in the east, my heart sais: Hojo, but if I take a more strategic look, I should attack the Imagawa. I decide to send my emissary to the hojo to spy on them. If their men aren't too strong, Sagami will be my first great target.

    I forgot to tell about my Daimyo earlier, it is Takeda Nobutora, 3 star, 5 wins, 0 losses.
    The ashi's I trained earlier go to Izu, and the Izu army goes to Kai, because Kai is far more important.

    *************attack on bingo*************

    120 vs. 60
    Takeda vs. R&R
    Bingo - No rain

    Bingo has two great forests on both sides of the map, so I alreay know in which he is. My cav. archers are in front of my yari's, and when I get close, I see his men are 60 ahi's, simple enemy. When he sees my army, he sudden decides to run away, of course I let my cav. chase, but they weren't fast enough.
    I won: 0 - 0.
    **************************************

    I still don't have money for anything.
    I have 2 regions in the west now, but only 180 men, while I can see now that the rebels have way more men, it's gonna' be hard to maintain those two regions. I got two bad messages this season, Uesugi is the richest clan, and Hojo has built a big castle. In the east, army's are growing, but noone is fighting, I still don't know what to do there.

    1040 Koku, we had a normal season
    ----------------------------------

    Wow, I'm being attacked in Aki, it's 120 Rebels vs. my 60 cav. archers (H1 because of a 2star general)
    **************Defence of Aki*****************

    They attack with no rain, I'm relieved, now my 'hit-and-run' tactik will be effective. I see not much mountains to position my troops, but I don't know his army, so I do want a hill at least. I set my cav. at a hill at the border, which isn't very good, because I cannot run when he has Yari sam charging in. I start the battle, after long waiting, I see he has 60 ashi's and 60 archers.
    His units aren't being used very strategic, he doesn't spread them out and the ashi's are walking between the archers. In this circumstances, my archers kill a lot of them, about 15 ashi's and 10 archers go down. I decide not to run, but to charge the ashi's(who mostly flee soon) and when his ashi's flee, his archers will be an easy prey for my cav. His ashi's seem to have high honour and kill many more of my men than I expected, but my tactik did work, they fled. Because I was so close to the border, I had several minutes to chase them, and I killed very much men of him, including his general.

    I win: 116 killed, 32 lost. My men gained +1 honour, he only got 4 ashi's left.
    *****************************************

    The hojo emissary comes to me, and I make an alliance with him too, because I still don't know who're gonna' be my enemies in the east.
    The rebels outnumber me in an assault on Bingo, and I decide not to defend, but to retreat to Aki, so I can easily defend Aki from them. In the throneroom, I see the Shimazu have conquered one region now too, but they(and I) are the only ones.
    Yeah, I got Koku again:
    A yari dojo in Aki.
    A big castle in Kai.
    60 Yari sam in Kai.

    I forgot my emissary for a while, I now send it into Sagami, next turn I'll see what Hojo has.

    The rebel armies in Iwami, Suo and Bingo aren't very big, once I complete the dojo in Aki I'll conquer the regions soon. Aki has a good army, so I will easily obtain that region til the dojo is finished. Back to the east:

    I don't have money left again.
    In Izu are now 120 ashi's, in Kai I have a pretty good army.
    Hojo has:
    archer dojo
    spear dojo
    Golden palace(!)
    tranquil garden

    His army is about: 240 ashi's, 120 sam archers, A daimyo and about 180 units of yari sam.
    ^^^^^
    I'm not exactly sure, but it was almost this, not too strong, but not so weak either.

    Thank you!

    Most people stopped reporting after a few years, but after a few years, it all gets more complicated and difficult, and more intresting, so I intend to go on for a while.

    Thanks for the translation too, those words are not in a dictionary.

    --------------

    The Yari's dojo in Aki is finished, so I can get expanding in the west.
    Izu's loyalty has improved, but my Koku didn't: taxes to 110%.
    There is still no war between two clans, everybody is just trying to steal regioins from the rebels.
    I send my emissary to Suruga to check Imagawa's army, but conquering suruga wouldn't be of a to great use. (Suruga's income < 200 koku.)
    Sagami would be great to conquer, Hojo is even building improved lands there.

    The shimazu sent an emissary, I now have 4 allies.
    I checked the map, Shimazu and I are still the only ones that have conquered a R&R region, but all the armies are rapidly growing.
    My emissary is now in Suruga, next turn, I can check out his army.

    I still don't know who to attack in the east, I hope hojo is so foolish to attack me or uesugi.

    The big castle in Kai is ready, but I'm not gonna' spend money on a new building yet again.
    I train 60 ashi's in Aki, I want to attack the rebels there next turn.
    Imagawa's army is 50% archers, a good prey for yari cav. but his daimyo is 4star and all his men have high honour, so his army is pretty good.

    I start building a mine in Kai.
    I train 60 sam. archers in Kai.
    My emissary now goes to shinano, to check again what the rebels have, I might want to attack Shinano.

    Forgot something again, my heirs:

    Takeda Shingen(!!!!!!) 11 years
    takeda nobushige 4 years.

    I'm gonna' attack the rebels in the west, but don't have much units to maintain loyalty: taxes back to 100%

    I train 60 ashi's again in Aki.

    I attack Suo from Aki:

    Takeda vs. R&R
    88 vs. 4
    My general is ***, 28 cav. archers, 60 ashi's.

    My emissary is in Shinano, but I send it on to Sagami. I could easily beat Shinano's army, but I'm afraid that all the rebel regions next to Shinano would attack me back right away, they would probably outnumber me, so I concentrate on Hojo again.

    I train 60 yari cav. in Kai.
    I get 60 ashi's from Izu back to Kai, because I'm going to attack soon, I think.

    The rebels(with their 4-men army) gave up Suo, I now have 2 regions again in the West.
    I train 60 yari sam in Aki to maintain loyalty.

    In the east, all the armies are growing, if I attack one, the other outnumbers me, so I decide to wait for them to make the first move.
    I send my cav. archers into Izu, because I'm afraid Imagawa will attack there, and 120 ashi's wouldn't be enough to repel them.

    The west seems quiet now, the loyalty isn't too high, but there are no new rebels. The Imagawa are now the best technical clan, so they are a real threat. I changed my tactik: I'm going to attack the Imagawa in Suruga, next turn, I think. I first need some Koku again, luckily it's already autumn.

    The mine is ready in Kai, my Koku is going better already, it's gonna' be much next year.
    Last turn, the uesugi used their troops in Musashi to attack Shimosa, and they won, but now the Hojo attacked Musashi. Luckily, the uesugi sent a big army back to defend and Hojo gave up. I took the side of uesugi on the diplomatic front. Meanwhile, Imagawa attacked Shinano and won, his army in Suruga is now tiny.
    I build a archer dojo in Aki.
    I train 60 yari sam. in Aki.
    Next turn I'll attack Suruga, so I train 60 sam. archers in Kai.
    I send my emissary to Totomi, I want to conquer that region too, so Imagawa has no power left.

    Imagawa gave up Suruga, and I destroyed his border forts, I now have 751 Koku. I set the taxes to 75%, because:

    Rebels have appeared at Suo, with a larger army than I have there. I send all my troops from Aki to Suo in order to defend and hold it, meanwhile I train 60 yari sam. in Aki to repel any R&R attack from Bingo.
    My attack on the Imagawa wasn't good for my diplomatic status, both Uesugi and Shimazu chose his side, I have no allies left! I send my emissary to Hojo for an alliance.
    I train 60 sam. archers in Kai for the war with Imagawa. I leave only 60 ashi's at Izu, because Imagawa's troops in Shinano will probably attack me in Kai or Suruga. When he does that, I hope rebels conquer Shinano, because then he has only Totomi(hard to defend) left. Next turn will be pretty exiting.

    The famous dojo is ready in Kai. I immediately train 60 yari sam. I want to expand, because things aren't going very good right now, I need more money.(I need to qonquer sagami)
    In the west, I send 180 ashi's to qonquer Iwami, R&R will give up, but I do need men to maintain loyalty.
    I am going to attack Hojo soon, I hope the campaign gets more exciting by then.

    I have been enjoying this Drisos . Nice to see someone take the time to do it. More, more more!

    btw: I am available for STW MP drills if you are--check your pm. MSN is down where I am so I can't check there at the moment.
    Be intent on loyalty
    While others aspire to perform meritorious services
    Concentrate on purity of intent
    While those around you are beset by egoism
