Starting Position

Flag of Theodoro Theodoro starts out with one minor province (3/3/2) producing wine with the Orthodoxy Orthodox religion. It is surrounded by Flag of Crimea Crimea which is often hostile and Flag of Genoa Genoa which can sometimes be hostile. Further north are Flag of Lithuania Lithuania and Flag of Poland Poland and Flag of Muscovy Muscovy and to the south is Flag of Ottomans Ottomans who poses the biggest threat. To the west is Flag of Moldavia Moldavia, a march of Poland and to the east are several countries with various religions and often in a state of war with each other.

Opening Moves

Flag of Theodoro Theodoro Sometimes starts out in a tricky location. To the south is Flag of Ottomans Ottomans , who are eager to expand in all directions including yours, and to the north Flag of Crimea Crimea , who will almost always get the "Remove Theodoro from the map!" mission. To start things off, Flag of Muscovy Muscovy usually starts friendly, so if he is friendly, ally him. This deters the threat of Crimea, and allows for easier expansion. Don't be upset that Flag of Muscovy Muscovy won't ally you, he isn't essential, and you can live without him.

If you couldn't ally Flag of Muscovy Muscovy , ally Flag of Trebizond Trebizond . You have a 100% chance to ally him, as he has the modifier 'historical ally'. Next, fabricate on Circassia, and ask for Military Access via Flag of Genoa Genoa, and prepare for war with your tribal neighbor. If Flag of Circassia Circassia has already eaten someone, been eaten, been taken as tributary state by Flag of Great Horde Great Horde, or has any particularly frusturating allies, restart. Without Flag of Circassia Circassia, Crimea WILL eat you.

From this point on, Flag of Theodoro Theodoro is mostly about being opportunistic on your surroundings, and striking weak neighbors. Some key idea groups you will want to take are Religious and Defensive, as you're surrounded by hordes with great armies and different religions, and the Deus Vult casus belli will be key to a good Flag of Theodoro Theodoro game.
