Msg event.pngThe Rise of Bahlul Lodi

Ever since the sack of its capital in 1398 the Delhi Sultanate has been in a constant state of decay. Within short time the sultanates of Bengal, Gujarat, Malwa and even Jaunpur were proclaimed independent by former governors, while our own Sayyid dynasty took the opportunity to seize power over the city itself. Since however we have been unable to consolidate the fracturing sultanate and our direct influence does not extend far from the city walls of Delhi itself.

The Lodi family in Sirhind has been our last great supporter. With influence over most of the Afghan nobles in our kingdom they have been able to bring order to the few lands that still remain loyal. In return our predecessors have granted them what influence and power they could. However, with the rise of Bahlul Lodi as the head of the family, Delhi is once again at risk. Word has reached us that Bahlul is planning to march on Delhi, to impose his will on the Sultan and possibly end the Sayyid dynasty.

This event happens only once during a campaign.

Msg event.pngThe Rise of Bahlul Lodi

As governor of the Punjab, and as one of the last remaining supporters of the Sayyid Sultans of Delhi, Bahlul Lodi is one of the most influential landholders in Northern India. He has also emerged as the informal leader of most of the Afghan nobles within the sultanate and many consider Bahlul Lodi more powerful than the Sultan of Delhi.

It is therefore no wonder that Bahlul Lodi has watched the incompetence of the Delhi Sultans with disgust.

Reformation of Delhi:

This section of the Wiki will be solely dedicated to guiding players to form the nation of Flag of Delhi Delhi, in which case you should go over to to

Main article: Delhi#Strategy
, and not this wiki.

Setup for the war with Delhi:

First, build up to force limit with Infantry, and be ready for war at all times. Start improving with Flag of Bengal Bengal, and Flag of Malwa Malwa for after your war. Ally Flag of Jangladesh Jangladesh so they don't join the war against you. Sometimes Flag of Delhi Delhi will start a war with Flag of Kashmir Kashmir before the event that lets you attack Flag of Delhi Delhi fires. If that happens, just restart. When the event fires, all of your troops should be in Sirhind, and with your 3 star general leading them. Immediately move into the province of Delhi to stackwipe Flag of Delhi Delhi's army early. Then, quickly send 1k men to each of Flag of Delhi Delhi's provinces to siege them down, and the rest into the capital to siege it down.

Usually Delhi will either ally Flag of Sindh Sindh or Flag of Nagaur Nagaur, but sometimes a bigger Indian nation. If they ally a smaller nation, you are good to go. However, you will struggle in a 1v1 against nations like Flag of Bengal Bengal, or a similarly sized nation. If Flag of Delhi Delhi gets a decent ally, it is recommended to restart because the time loss isn't that bad, and you are really saving yourself from a death war early on, which would most likely kill your campaign in the long run. However a smaller nation should be no match for you. Siege them down, take their cash, and break their alliances, and then peace out Flag of Delhi Delhi for a full annexation. After the war, ally Flag of Bengal Bengal, Flag of Malwa Malwa, and maybe a bigger nation, and then reform the nation of Flag of Delhi Delhi.

From here , just go to
