Pirate's republics can declare war on Colonial nations without their overlord being called as an ally, so if Europeans begin to colonize the Caribbean before you can finish, it may be easier to allow a colonial nation to form.

Once you have a border with Bremen or a coastal provinces in coring range of Bremen, keep an eye out for opportunities to start a war that Bremen will be involved in. As Bremen is a free city, it will be much harder if you declare directly on them directly (as the Emperor will defend free cities). Annex Bremen in a separate peace and release them as your vassal(you can't vassalize a free city in a peace deal). Afterwards consolidate power and grow large enough to combat your most powerful neighbours - Ottomans, Spain, France, etc. Make sure to give Bremen land as well, either in the direction of the Ottomans or in the direction of Spain. You will have to fight your way through one and feed Bremen provinces to "snake" Bremen's land down to Werder (This is because vassals need adjacent land or sea tiles to be given provinces and do not care about coring distance/colonial range). The least time-consuming method would be to give them a province per sea tile starting from the Mediterranean, down through the Flag of Mamluks Mamluks to the red sea coast, and finally down to Werder. 1.30 H

Own 8 different monuments on tier 3.
  • Yes Has 8 Tier 3 monuments
Easiest done with Flag of France France as they starts with 2 and can expand into Flag of England England, Iberia, Flag of Morocco Morocco and Flag of Norway Norway while starting with a decent economy. Alternatively a Buddhist nation in Indochina can do it easily as they have 6 elligible monuments in Tibet and Indochina alone and limited aggressive expansion penalties. Leviathan.png 1.31 H
