This mod requires Brave New World.



Located in the northwest of Southeast Asia, bordered by Bangladesh, China, India, Laos and Siam, Burma has a long and complex history - a land where magnificent and ancient Buddhist temples gaze out serenely over a nation that has seen centuries of both prosperity and turmoil.


Anawrahta Minsaw was the founder of the Pagan Empire. Considered the father of the Burmese nation, Anawrahta turned a small principality in the dry zone of Upper Burma into the first Burmese Empire that formed the basis of modern-day Burma. Anawrahta unified the entire Irrawaddy valley for the first time in history, and placed peripheral regions such as Shan States and Arakan (Northern Rakhine) under Pagan's suzerainty. He successfully stopped the advance of Khmer Empire into Tenasserim coastline and into Upper Menam valley, making Pagan one of two main kingdoms in mainland Southeast Asia.

Dawn of Man[]

O' King Anawrahta, founder of the Pagan Empire, your people bow before you. Flourishing in the Irrawaddy Delta, the Burmese people have long endured. Since her establishment, Burma has continuously astounded the world with both her strength and her culture; the lesser nations around her trembled before the might of her armies and gazed in awe upon the beauty of her architecture. All this allowed the Burmese to eventually form one of the largest and most cultured empires in the history of Southeast Asia; leaving a legacy both profound and glorious.

A Cultural, more flexible equivalent to Assyria. The Kyundaw is a very powerful Unit for its Era when stationed next to enemy cities. With Composite Bowman support, a band of them can easily take down a Civ or two. In the process you'll receive some Great Writers - place their Works into Payas for a Gold reward. Maintain a large empire of conquered subjects, and build Payas everywhere, to gain even more Great Writer points. Your strong early Tourism and game-long incentives to conquer suit a Cultural and/or Domination Victory.

Events and Decisions[]

Designate the Official Nats[]

Our people seem to be rather attached to the worship of Nats, or spirits. It is unlikely we would be able to properly eradicate such superstition from the empire. Instead, let us designate an official pantheon of Nats so we will be able to at least influence what our people worship.

Collate the Royal Burmese Chronicles[]
