Execute decision.pngForm Arabian Nation

For hundreds of years the Arabs have been divided, but we remember when the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, organized all of us into one ummah, a community of the faithful that transcended tribal affiliation.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Strategy The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Oman. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.

Religion and Government[edit | edit source]

Flag of Oman Oman is a Muslim country with Ibadi Islam Ibadi religion under a Government monarchy.pngfeudal theocratic government. Sunni schools bonus depend on diplomatic relation and the Invite Minorities from Abroad government interaction depend on the presence of Ibadi Islam Ibadi religion province in other countries. Some of them may disappear with conquest or rivalry emergence thus vassalization is sometime a good way to secure the availability of these bonuses. Additionally, releasing provinces or countries is a possible strategy to access new schools in case of unfavorable neighbor relation (see Sunni Islam Sunni, Shiite Islam Shiite or Ibadi Islam Ibadi religion page for school attribution).

As Ibadi Islam Ibadi religion is a minority Religious unity.png Religious unity falls quickly with conquest. Choosing the Religious idea group.png religious idea group will increase Missionary strength.png Missionary strength to convert newly conquered provinces. The Struggle of Power event cycle will speed up any attempt to do it by increasing mysticism. Furthermore, the Cb on religious enemies.png Deus Vult idea can turn the minority position into a huge advantage.

Conquest[edit | edit source]

At 1444 start, Oman needs to get its cores from Flag of Hormuz Hormuz; it's advisable to declare soon rather than later, to prevent their alliance network grows too strong. Supporting Omani rebels is however a viable alternative, due to Hormuz's low religious unity. This requires a fabricated Spy Network of 60 and about 40 ducats. Once Hormuz is annexed, every other country in the peninsula can be defeated unless they find a strong ally.

After coring some coastal provinces, a stack of galleys should help to keep a safe access to Flag of Timurids Timurids land.Flag of Timurids Timurids start in a weak position facing several revolts and disloyal vassals. The overlord is losing manpower and his vassals are not likely to defend his territory and join any battle. That is an opportunity to declare war and eventually defeat Timurids and change ruler into Timurid in order to win permanent claims in the whole Persia region. Additionally, forming Flag of Mughals Mughals by pushing the conquest to the east provides more permanent claims in the Indian subcontinent.

Another route for Omani conquest is to seek provinces with good Development cost.png development cost modifier such as Baghdad or Cairo in order to stack several cost reduction for a very efficient economic development. Oman can stack until Development cost.png-100% development cost without development efficiency and province modifier.

Finally, Oman can form Flag of Arabia Arabia to reach Empire rank empire rank and eventually choose more military national ideas.

Alternatively one could no CB a minor Indian nation and by building powerbase in India form Hindustan

Trading[edit | edit source]

Omani national ideas focus on trade and naval bonuses. Moreover, the country has quick access to several coastal provinces which make Flag of Oman Oman a good candidate for trade oriented gameplay using Exploration idea group.png exploration idea group early[1].

After conquering Zanzibar, it is worth rushing the Spice Islands and conquering a province that produces cloves. This in return will give a decision that makes Zanzibar produce cloves.
