PERIOD VII (1760-1792)

1: REVOLT IN INDONESIA (*) (historical date: no definite date)
(duration: until the suppression of the revolts)

EVENTS PHASE:
1. Place one revolt- and one revolt+ in two randomnly chosen COL/TPs in areas JAVA, SUMATRA, BORNEO, CELEBES and SURABAYA. Both revolts can occur in the same place. Roll on the Revolt Table for the control of these revolts,.
 

2: SALE OF CORSICA BY GENOA (historical date: 1759)
(duration: permanent)

1. In case there is no Corsica minor nor Genoese CORSICA treat this event as an R result in Corsica and mark it off.

EVENTS PHASE:
1. Genoese CORSICA (or the minor Corsica if it exists) is for sale. Each player must immediately make a secret bid for it and the highest bid annexes CORSICA. Only the winning bid is actually paid. FRA receives a bonus of 50d for its bid.

DIPLOMACY PHASE:
1. If CORSICA is currently occupied by foreign troops, the owner of those troops must either declare a war to the new controller of this province profiting from a CB, or withdraw its forces as per peace process.
 

3: REVOLT OF POUGATCHEV (historical date: 1773-74)
(duration: until the end of the civil war)

EVENTS PHASE:
1. A civil war erupts in RUS (See rule 53.40). The rebels are controlled by SPA.
2. Place a revolt- in Russian KAZAN, ASTRAKHAN, STEPPES, URAL, AZOW, CRIMEA and all ROTW provinces adjacent to URAL that have RUS COL/TPs. Roll for two additional revolts in RUS. If the result is outside RUS territory, ignore and do not re-roll.
3. Place a revolt A- (10i/10c) and a minor general, or leader Pugachev (ES1), if he is in play, in any revolted province.
4. If during any following turn two revolt+ caused by this event and at least one revolt army counter still exists, place revolt- in any one original revolt province even if no revolt exists any longer in it. This extension or revolt is cancelled if the rebels suffered a major defeat during the preceding turn.
5. From the third turn on, if a rebel army is located during this phase in either KAZAN, ASTRAKHAN, STEPPES or URAL, the Sibir A+ (20i/30c) is placed with it even if this breaks stacking limits (if Sibir still exists, use an army counter of any non-existing minor). If this army suffers losses, rebel reinforcements can be used to fill it in a normal way. However, its current strength is also its maximum strength.

ADMINISTRATION PHASE:
1. The rebels roll reinforcement in Offensive status during each turn of the civil war. The number and continent of rebel counters available to them is the same as for regular RUS counters. Reinforcement bonus is counted by treating all currently rebellious provinces as being owned by the rebels even if they do not control their fortresses.

MILITARY PHASE:
1. All rebel units can use revolt counters as supply bases in the same way as fortresses as long as there are no non-defeated enemy units present at the moment supply is needed.
 

4: WAR OF INDEPENDENCE IN THE COLONIES (historical date: 1775-83)
(duration: until the end of the rebellion)

EVENTS PHASE:
1. A rebellion begins in the colonial possessions of one of the protestant players. The target is chosen according following priorities.
2. The target area is the first eligible among the following groups:
    a. ”North America”
    b. ”South America”
    c. ”India”
    d. ”Asia” (not counting ”India”)
3. The target player is the first eligible among the following, but only if protestant:
    a. ENG
    b. FRA
    c. SPA
    d. HOL
4. The target is determined by first going through the first group with each player one at a time, then continuing with the next group and so no, until an eligible target is foung.
5. To be eligible target the player must have at least 10 levels of COL (not TP) in four adjacent provinces with land access to each other. Not all of these provinces must have a COL, but whatever COL’s there are in them, must add up to 10 leves. COL of other players or have no effect in this respect.
6. As soon as an eligible target has been found, the search can be dropped as this event affects only one player. If no eligible target is found, nothing happens, but the event is considered as having been played and is marked off.
7. After the target has been found, a die-roll D10 is made to determine whether a rebellion occurs or not. The die-roll is modified as follows:
    a. –5 if no other player has COL inside this group.
    b. –1 if the player has any land detachments in any of the colonies in this group.
    c. –2 if the player has any armies in any of the colonies in this group (non-cumulative with the modification above).
    d. –2 if the player controls the diplomatic marker of any native minor (Ohio, Hyderabad, Mysore, Oman, Aden) with territories inside the group.
    e. +1 for each other player that has COL/TPs within two provinces from any of the players COL in the target group.
    f. +2 for each other player with a COL adjacent to any of the players COL in the target group (non-cumulative with the modification above).
    g. +3 if another player controls the diplomatic marker of any native minor (Ohio, Hyderabad, Mysore, Oman, Aden) with territories inside the group.
On a result of 5 or more the rebellion occurs. However, a non-modified 10 always means a rebellion, while a non-modified 1 never means a rebellion. If rebellion does not occur, nothing happens, but the event is considered as having been played and is marked off.
8. All COL of the target and inside the chosen group rebel save one, which can be chosen by the target. A revolt- is placed in all the rest. In addition, 3 Ldets (use US counters if available, otherwise rebel counters) with 10i conscripts are placed in these revolts by the controller of the rebellion (use the priority list for USA to determine the controller). All fortresses in the rebelling areas are in rebel hands ands all forts in them are eliminated.

DIPLOMACY PHASE:
1. The target may use a bonus of +5 to certain minors that can exceptionally be used in ROTW map against the rebels (only). The bonus can only be used to raise these minors to CE and not higher. These minors can only be used when inactive and only by following the restrictions of CE (even if they are actually higher up in the diplomatic track). The minors in question are the following:
    a. ENG: Hannover and Hessen
    b. FRA: Savoia and Lorraine
    c. SPA: Portugal
    d. HOL: Palatinate

ADMINISTRATION PHASE:
1. As long as this event lasts, the target receives no income from COL that rebelled even if they are later suppressed. Nor can he raise any military units in them or use their colonial militias. He can, however, construct fortresses and forts in them.
2. As long as this event lasts, the target can receive no income from any commercial fleets in STZ adjacent to COL that rebel (even if they are later suppressed). All commercial fleets of other players within the same STZ receive double income (but not double bonus).
3. The rebels can draw reinforcements in either Defensive or Offensive status. They can use only US counters to place these reinforcements (use up to three rebel detachments if there are no US detachments available).
4. The rebels receive two generals for the duration of this event. Use unnamed generals if enough named ones are not in play (note that General Washington becomes US general, even if the target is not ENG).
5. The rebels have the same technology and unit content than the target has.
6. The target receives at no cost an additional random mercenary general as long as this event lasts (this is counted above normal mercenary allowance). The hierarchy status of this mercenary is always Z, but it can be used in ROTW.
7. Leaders Washington and Lafayette (ES1) represent two nations; ENG/FRA and USA. They remain as normal leaders of the colonial powers until this event occurs. Thereafter they can become rebel leaders. This is mandatory if their other nationality is that of the target player, and voluntary if it is not. In the former case the leader becomes permanently a US leader and is removed from play if the rebellion fails. In the latter case the player of the nation in question decides during each turn which country the leader represents and it cannot continue as a US leader after the event is finished.

MILITARY PHASE:
1. All rebel units can use revolt counters as supply bases in the same way as fortresses as long as there are no non-defeated enemy units present at the moment supply is needed.

PEACE PHASE:
1. If the target has not suppressed all revolts caused by this event by the end of the second turn, all rebelling COL (even those successfully suppressed) form an independent state USA (or whatever). From now on, all such provinced become European provinces for all game purposes; they are regarded to be cities with first level fortresses, their movement cost is not doubled and all natives in their areas are permanently subjugated. Also, in the future all US land units can travel across native territories without causing them to activate.

POSSIBLE EXTENSION OF THE EVENT (applies only if the revolt succeeded!):
1. A succesfull revolt can later extent to the colonies of other players as well. In order to become possible targets they must fill the same conditions as above except for the condition for protestant religion. Also non-Protestant colonies can revolt this way.
2. In order to be eligible target the required conditions must also be filled within the same group where the original rebellion took place, or in a group adjacent to it by land.
3. During any following Events Phase when such conditions apply, roll a D10 for each eligible target. On a result of 10 another rebellion occurs exactly the same as above.
4. This revolt is however independent of the earlier one in all respect. If it results in another independent state, this state is also independent forming in fact a second United States (use the same markers, or whatever supplements if both are active in the same time).
5. There can be only one such extension of this event. However, if this extension is succesful, then even it can later extent, if conditions allow.
 

5: REVOLUTION IN HOLLAND (historical date: 1785-87)
(duration: until the revolts are suppressed or the monarch is overthrown)

EVENTS PHASE:
1. Place revolt- in each province owned by HOL/Holland. The revolts are controlled by TUR (unless the controller of Holland, in which case RUS)
2. HOL looses three levels of stability and 50d.
3. Holland immediately offers at least a white peace to all its enemies (even if this means separate peace).

DIPLOMACY PHASE:
1. As long as this event lasts HOL receives a bonus of +5 to its diplomacy on Prussia, but only in order to raise it to CE (ignore higher results). HOL does not have to use this bonus, if it so wishes.

ADMINISTRATION PHASE:
1. HOL/Holland cannot build any military units during the first turn of this event.

MILITARY PHASE:
1. If Prussia is in CE or higher of HOL, the Dutch player may use Prussian units, even when inactive, to suppress the revolts caused by this event. However, Prussian participation remains limited by the rules for CE status and it is not regarded to be in active status by helping suppressing the revolts.

PEACE PHASE:
1. As long as there are revolts in Holland, it continues to offer at least a white peace to all its enemies as above.
2. If, at the end of a turn there are revolts in more than half the provinces belonging to Holland, this minor is regarded to have gone through a revolution. Return the Dutch marker to neutral status (unless activated in which case place it in MA of the controller) and remove all revolt markers.
