The initial engagements
in the war with the Japanese began in the Year 210 AD, with detailed activity
all across the Egyptian empire. The overview map below provides you with a
perspective for the locations of activities that occurred in four major
As our galleys reached Matsuyama, the unveiling map revealed that another point of land further to the east of Matsuyama would force our route to loop out further to the east if we adhered to the same objectives as the original plan. (the orange path) The map also revealed a horse resource on the point that was already connected by roads.
The discovery of the
Japanese horse farm changed the plan for the landing site since the new
priority would be to deprive Tokugawa of his supply of horses so we could
limit his ability to strike back at our invading forces on the western
approaches to Kyoto. (the red paths) The only question would be,
The Egyptian captain in charge of the lead galley executed a brilliant “flash from the sea landing” in just one turn by exploiting the increased movement capabilities of the Egyptian galleys due to the Great Lighthouse. Even though the forces were spread out initially, the Captain used his lead galley to move one space toward shore and unload the first two units of the landing force and then moved one space back out to sea as his second movement. On its final move of 210 AD, the second galley was summoned forward with flaming arrow signals and met up in the same location with the first galley which still had two movements left in its abilities for the year. The military units in the first galley were then transferred to the second galley and completed the landing to join their fellow Egyptians in blocking access to the horse farm.
Immediately after the landing, we could assess the shape of the revealed cultural borders in this area of the Japanese homeland to project that a city lie just out of our view to the southwest. The cultural borders for this town or city had been pushed out to the third expansion level which indicated that this town was probably one of the very early Japanese settlements and that it could be a fairly mature and well defended city. In the image map above, the estimated city position is shown with an X located at the intersection of the dotted lines that are drawn from the center squares of the extents of the cultural borders.
Kyoto still lay far away from us to the southwest, as seen by the light view patch beyond the hidden dark area at the lower left of the image. With our revised strategy focusing on primarily denying Japan the access to the horse resource, the concept of striking Kyoto with this landing force is not a major objective.
The next major sequence of moves was – The Coastal Thrust near the town of Fukushima
