Except for Kotte who can build a galley fleet to prevent Vijayanagar from crossing the strait, playing in South India is very difficult.

Strategy

You start as an OPM which is a 9 dev province with a weak economy. You must overcome this, however.

Vijayanagar will most always hostile and wants your only province but you have cores on their southern provinces and won't go away because your the primary nation of Tamil culture so you dont have to waste a diplomat on creating a spy network on them but don't attack them because you need someone larger like Bahmanis to take them on and gain your cores back.

Beforehand, Venad, your neighbor who will always be your rival will not have an ally and build up to force limit and hire a general from the Nobles estate and full annex them and take their money to repay any loans you have. Then fabricate claims on the Maldives which will have no allies and annex them. While you're doing this, keep improving relations with Bahmanis because you will need them.

When you annex all the other OPM in the area, FC on Mysore and attack them ASAP take Mysore and vassalize them.

When you ally Bahmanis, see if they are willing to join your war and declare war on Vijayanagar. In this war, you want Jaffna and most of your cores back from them.

At this point, you can just attack them after Truce expire and you don't need Bahmanis help anymore. You are in a good position to gain the Pandya Empire achievement and from there, it is up to you

Good Luck!
