This mod requires Brave New World.



The islands of Japan are born of the unimaginable violence of plate tectonics, arising as the Pacific Plate is ground beneath the Eurasian Plate. The result is a mountainous land of great beauty and peril, where the people live and thrive in a narrow corridor between volcano and sea.

Toyotomi Hideyoshi[]

Toyotomi Hideyoshi, considered the second "Great Unifier" of Japan was a Japanese samurai and daimyo of the late Sengoku period. Rising from a peasant background as a retainer of the prominent lord Oda Nobunaga, Hideyoshi succeeded Nobunaga after the Honno-ji Incident in 1582 and continued Nobunaga's campaign to unite Japan that led to the closing of the Sengoku period. Hideyoshi became the de facto leader of Japan and acquired the prestigious positions of Chancellor of the Realm and Imperial Regent by the mid-1580s. Hideyoshi's rule covers most of the Azuchi–Momoyama period of Japan, partially named after his castle, Momoyama Castle.

Dawn of Man[]

"May fortune continue to smile down upon you, great Toyotomi Hideyoshi, ruler and unifier of Japan! Rising from truly humble origins as a simple peasant soldier, through your many merits you became one of the most distinguished generals of the great warlord and First Great Unifier, Oda Nobunaga. When your great lord was betrayed and struck down, you quickly avenged his death and rose to become the undisputed ruler of Japan, gaining the prestigious titles of Kampaku and Daijo Daijin. You continued the unification efforts of your predecessor, succeeding in uniting Japan from Kagoshima to Kunohe, and introduced reforms to restore order and stability to the fractured island. While your invasion of Korea and China did not go as successfully, such was the strength of your armies that for a time they were able to withstand the combined forces of the Ming and Joseon Empires. Truly, you earned the title of the Second Great Unifier!


Art by Arilasqueto

Great Hideyoshi, your supporters' power quickly waned after your death, and like the Oda Clan before it, the Toyotomi Clan was unable to stop the ambitions of its subordinates. But now the people of Japan call upon you once more! Will you once more bring unity and stability to your lands, and show the world the power of your armies? Will you build a civilization to stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "I am Toyotomi Hideyoshi, undisputed leader of Japan. If you do not cooperate with us, we will make you cooperate."

Defeat: "Pessimism is a losing strategy, but I must admit my own failure. You were the greater general!"
