Part 106: Oni wa Soto, Fuku wa Uchi

Narrated by Homusubi

  1. Intro

    Konnichiwa, irankarapte, and athchomar chomakea, everyone! Welcome to Part 106 of the Civ Battle Royale. I’m /u/Homusubi, creator…

  2. Melon Map

    This map from /u/SphericalMelon is, by and large, the same as that of the last part, with the obvious exception of the demise of n…

  3. Tile Accurate Map

    Not much has changed on /u/DerErlenkonig’s tile-accurate version other than the collapse of the rump states. A slightly smaller Sw…

  4. 1

    We start this part with a shot from the one significant war that was ongoing at the end of Part 105, namely, Sibir vs Mongolia. I’…

  5. 2

    Blackfoot vs Buccs?! Did anyone see this coming? It is, in some ways, a war that we have been waiting for for some time: I distin…

  6. 3

    OK, this is just ridiculous. I thought this would be a fairly unassuming part after the madness of the last few, but it appears as…

  7. 4

    Hmm. The Boers do seem to have a few military units, although the sea is undisputedly Ingolfur’s and he looks ready to rain down h…

  8. 5

    I’m not sure how or why Ingolfur got a biotrooper down to Aswan and took the city, but he has, and there’s now a grey and green en…

  9. 6

    Another shot of Aswan - already filling up with Brazilians! - and of the north-central Ryk. Looks like I might have been wrong on…

  10. 7

    OK, it’s time to address the twin elephants in the room here. Let’s call them the Asian elephant in the room and the… er… Latin Am…

  11. 8

    And now to the Asian elephant in the room… Parkes has also woken up, and it looks like Korea - or at least the space they currentl…

  12. 9

    Here we have a shot of the undisputed greatest archipelago on the Cylinder just before it starts to explode. It appears as if most…

  13. 10

    We return to North Africa to find that Ingolfur is actually winning. Ciudad del Carmen has fallen and Basse-Terre à Mer looks to…

  14. 11

    Seriously, the Boers have something like septupled the amount of units in this part of the map in the space of one turn. Aswan loo…

  15. 12

    Genghis has made a breakthrough and taken Shenzhen, with Barnaul set to follow. However, if you look closer, the Mongol carpet is…

  16. 13

    First blood to Sejong! Iloilo, which had ten Strayan planes stationed on it in the last screenshot, has gone blue, and although th…

  17. 14

    The Blackfoot have made a rather precarious beachhead on the Yucatan, kind of threatening Maracaibo but kind of not, while both ca…

  18. 15

    Kruger has a healthy scattering of units across North Africa as his war machine gets going once more. Carthage and Olympia would b…

  19. 16

    Beryozovo, once home to the infamous Trigger Darkhan, falls to Sibir, and the Mongol carpet thins out even further. I guess this m…

  20. 17

    Nagoya falls to Korea, sandwiching the ROJ between two pieces of DPRJ territory. Remembering Sejong’s faithful protection of Emper…

  21. 18

    Despite my previous predictions, Therapne hasn’t fallen yet, seemingly due to Brazil’s ranged units blocking its melee units from…

  22. 19

    It appears as if Maracaibo, as (half-)expected, has flipped, and Crowfoot has managed to land one extra paratrooper on the Yucatan…

  23. 20

    Nagoya holds and Gladstone has fallen, putting the EUIV players’ pilgrimage site of Ryukyu entirely in Korean hands. However, we a…

  24. 21

    Mongolia have swapped Barnaul for Shenzhen. Sibir, however, is still slowly gaining the advantage - despite a few precious GDRs (a…

  25. 22

    Iceland has captured Panormus, but Carthage is looking vulnerable, despite the Brazilian peacekeepers. The Boerg has two airbases…

  26. 23

    Therapne falls! Brazil’s worryingly ranged-heavy collection of troops previously seen in Mexico has evaporated, and Pedro - perhap…

  27. 24

    Good news for Korea fans: Sejong has finally started to produce units in his core, with biotroopers seemingly the order of the day…

  28. 25

    Amusingly, although the Boers have devoted sixteen planes and at least one missile to taking the unimportant Icelandic possession…

  29. 26

    Kuchum definitely has the upper hand here. Barnaul has flipped back to him, and Shenzhen has held. Now all that remains is for him…

  30. 27

    Ciudad del Carmen is orange again. What is more worrying for Ingolfur is that Brazil no longer blocks the Strait of Gibraltar, alt…

  31. 28

    This isn’t very encouraging. Olympia and Epidauros have fallen, and the Boers seem to have found a way of threatening Europe witho…

  32. 29

    Kuchum has flipped this front firmly in his favour, as he has started to push east instead of trying to reclaim lost cities. I kno…

  33. 30

    Kyoto falls to Korea! The city is divided between those who celebrate hard and recreate the Gion Festival after however many mille…

  34. 31

    Remember that comment by, I’ve forgotten who it was, that said that Australia would magic a carpet out of nowhere at some point? W…

  35. 32

    The Blackfoot haven’t moved, and so Uxmal is still blue, although it does have zero health. The Brazilians have also launched a ra…

  36. 33

    Oh. Our first shot of Turn 242 sees Uxmal go green! I’m not sure what exactly happened, presumably Crowfoot moved a paratrooper c…

  37. 34

    Iceland has somehow come through and sniped Basse-Terre a Mer, but it doesn’t look like it will hold, as it is entirely surrounded…

  38. 35

    Southern Japan is, at least in terms of population, a shell of its former self, as cities suffer flip after flip and people flee e…

  39. 36

    Our first look at Inuit Murika for quite a while shows a region which, while barer than it could be, is still not quite as bare as…

  40. 37

    Here we have the Inuit core proper. It tells a similar story to the southern shot, with Blackfoot present in most areas, although…

  41. 38

    A ragtag coalition of semi-rump states and nonexistent states bans perfume. Gods know why exactly, although it annoys the superpow…

  42. 39

    Antium has flipped, Panormus has changed hands, and Sparta is fairly firmly orange once again. The Boers are back in Europe. Damn…

  43. 40

    Carthage falls to the Boerg. Ah well. I’ll just tell myself that it was a miracle that Ingolfur managed to hold on to it for so lo…

  44. 41

    ...Oh. Bad news for Boer supporters; good news for actual human beings. In other words, FREAKING BANZAI, PEOPLE. Pedro, who has b…

  45. 42

    The war kicks off in North Africa. I count six Brazilian gains in this screenshot alone, including Arretium, which presumably flip…

  46. 43

    Ani and Epidauros fall, with Sparta and Varna set to follow. Brazil, like Iceland before them, has air superiority even on this fr…

  47. 44

    Remember that this is the first turn of the war, and yet Pedro has made concrete advances on every front. Not only has Brazil incr…

  48. 45

    Wow. The Blackfoot could likely take the entirety of the Hawai’ian archipelago if they struck Parkes now, although whether they co…

  49. 46

    A golden age arrives for the sub! Presumably it’s not to do with my narration, so I’ll just assume it’s to do with all the various…

  50. 47

    Surprisingly, there’s not much to see here, other than perhaps the seriously lost Strayan biotrooper. Brazil has inched its carpet…

  51. 48

    Brazil cleans up some bordergore in North Africa by adding Utique and airbase Carthago Nova to its empire. The Boerg, while pumpin…

  52. 49

    Epidauros is the first city to be retaken by the Boerg in this war, although it does come at the cost of being kicked out of mainl…

  53. 50

    Brazil claims the twin Boer powerhouses of Vung Tau and Baghdad, despite Boer biotroopers tricking in and reclaiming Najran (and,…

  54. 51

    Our last shot of the war in Japan for this part reveals neither side being able to make much progress. The minimap appears to show…

  55. 52

    Oh. Mongolia actually made progress. I’ve spent most of this part saying they’re doomed, but they just took a city which was Sibir…

  56. 53

    The penultimate slide of this episode reveals Lichtenburg and Tarentum have fallen to Pedro’s amazing technicolour paratroopers, w…

  57. 54

    Another Aussie biotrooper tourist? What is going on? Is this the start of a Brazil/Blackfoot style carpeting tactic from Parkes? I…
