Before we say what we wish to say, let us be clear. We understand that you are very angry at us right now. We understand that you did nothing particularly dramatic to provoke so drastic a response besides your endless squabble with our ally Bod. We also know that your position is not looking good with us to the North, Khmer to the South and you between.

So then, let us be clear. We don't want to destroy you. We don't want to enslave you. We don't even want to seriously harm you. What we do want is a secure border, regional stability, and cooperation between the Great Powers of Asia in preparation for the next war.

As you may have noticed your losses were considerably more than ours. With the battlefield data we have gained our next attack will be stronger, more than making up for the minor losses we have suffered. We know you do not have any similar tricks.

So we will make you this offer. Join the Concord of Three (Afterword Four) Sovereigns. Sign strong and sacred treaties of peace and alliance with us. Agree to cooperation with the unified actions of the Concord. Do this and we will do more than leave you in peace. We will rebuild all you have lost and more than it with our own wealth. We will see your people prosperous and happy. We will in short make you better off than you are now.

You and we both know that had we made this offer before we attacked it would have been refused. If we had gone through the tedious work of overthrowing your government we would have gotten the outcome we were looking for at the cost of several years longer wait and considerably higher costs.

So, to use a trite Western Expression: Would you like the carrot or the stick?

Impressive. It seems we both had the same idea regarding India. However there is an interesting problem we both now face. On the one hand we both have large armed forces and are right next to each other. On the other we both have large armies in India and will soon crush the natives. Either of these situations could lead to war on their own. Both is a dangerous mix.

We therefore have a suggestion. Join the Concord of Three Sovereigns. It is not an organism we use to control other members, it is a defense pact against Western aggression and internal conflict. While at first there may be some friction we feel confident that in time we will both profit considerably by such an arrangement.

Please, seriously consider our offer. War between us would be a very bad thing and would let Majapahit and the Mongols sweep in to pick up the pieces. Avoiding war should be our primary concern.

We know this is not a particularly good time. We cannot respond with military force to protect you and you likely do not think well of us for our actions toward your northern neighbors.

We would simply like to inform you that should the situation grow too bleak we will prepare a place in our lands to give to you as your sovereign territory to which you might evacuate your leaders and whatever you think worth taking. We believe the term is government in exile. We are not strongly suggesting this, that would look like coercion or a plan to exploit you. That is not our goal. We simply wish you to know the option is open if you wish it.

Basically what I am going for is to eventually get all the nations of Asia as allies. I understand that this will take considerably investment. What I would like to know is: Is this A: Even Possible B: Feasable within 10 turns at most for all the NPCs I created besides the Mongols and Satavahana.
