    If the universe is of infinite size, it must have infinite space. In this infinite space, an infinite number of different things must be able to happen. If an infinite number of different things can happen, there must be everytinhg happening somewhere. Including stuff you only dream about. So, technically, dreams do come true. If you can be bothered to go halfway across the universe.

    Ok folks, it looks like Duke of Wellington is having a leave of absence of real life. Happens to us all. Until he returns please do not fill this AAR, or his Theodoran one, up with spam.

    stnylan is trying to keep this thread from filling up with spam like requests for an update. One or two is fine, but after that it just becomes a spamfest.

    As well - not a good idea to question a mods suggestion if you want to stick around.

    But do the mods have the holy hand grenade to stop him?

    Some people, it appears, cannot take a hint. Do not post that you will shut up. Simply do not post. All similar posts to the last two will be considered as spam, and will be deleted.

    stnylan - A fine idea but as I', sure you're aware my writing talents do not extend that style Maybe the game shall not follow that course either.

    Terraferma - I would like to update, but haven't even played in weeks.

    jwolf - It is a shame to see such destruction of an empire I was quite proud of but I like to keep things realistic from time to time. I had to go through and edit out all the rebels otherwise the new countries would have been crippled with revolts.

    Specialist290 - The coats of arms came from Kaigon's graphic website, you can find the link in his sig.

    billy bob - I'm glad you approve

    thrashing mad - Thanks

    PrawnStar - Glad to be an inspiration.




    All - Apologies for the lack of updates or explanation for my absence. Things have been hectic with a trip away, returning to uni and most of all shifting house which has left me without an internet connection. Getting that restored may be a week or so off and until then no updates

    Understandable difficulties, indeed, Duke....No worries, we'll be here when you are ready. I am quite curious myself to see how the horde manages to try and regain all that it has lost. My guess is that it won't quite manage it. Like so many empires before it, the sheer size and weight of it was too much and eventually even the greatest empire must die. A shame, but all in all everything you have accomplished so far has been quite impressive.

    Chigakka : Part III
    The Golden Horde was looking a sorry sight upon the map. The work of centuries of Khans to regain the lands rightfully Tatar had been swept away in less than a decade of chaos. Yet still Chigakka, the fool at the helm of the Horde, remained living and 'ruling'. Every day the rewards offered for his head grew and the odds offered by bookmakers on him seeing another Ramadan lengthened.

    Chigakka's unexpected stay at the top was in no small part due his specially created Ministry of Longevity whose sole aim was to protect the Khan against the daily assassination attempts taking place.

    The logo of the Ministry of Longevity. The symbol on the left is a person viewed from above with a dagger in their back (reflecting what the Ministry guards against) the symbol on the right is a person pointing out the culprit (representing the other side of the Ministries responsibilities). In recent times this symbol has been taken to represent male and female. Historians suspect it was chosen for the animosity and suspicion involved in the original's creation that adequately reflected much of the nature of male female interactions today.

    So much time was spent in Chigakka's day dealing with assassination attempts that his rulings on other subjects became few and far between. The lack of central authority was costly. In Russia rebels were making good use of the chaos to defeat the army multiple times and capture several cities.

    The situation in the north


    Down south it wasn't much better as even the capital was plagued by rebels. Thankfully the rebellious and downright illegal nations having just gained independence were mostly busy with their own troubles. This one positive note among it all allowed those parts of the Horde's army not rebel quashing to gather on the borders in preparation for future offensives.

    Fun and games in Astrakhan


    As February 1529 arrived Chigakka would do one final thing to infuriate his enemies. He denied them all the pleasure of killing him and claiming the glory it would bring. Whilst descending a set of stairs in his palace he tripped on a shoelace and fell a total of 43 steps. Thus by dying in such a mundane manner he actually had the last laugh.

    Little does he know that the architect placed the staircase in a position ideal for causing people to fall.

    Well, even if Chigakka fouled his enemies attempt, the Ministry of Longevity should have paid more focus on the treacherous stairs that have been allowed to roam free for too long. Not to mention the shoelace conspiracy...

    Nothing about the symbol on the right? Or perhaps the symbol on the right is meant to be viewed from the other side (thus making it appear to be on the left), reflecting how if you run across the Ministry, you better get out of their way and see their better side, or it'd be you for the chop next?

    As always, gr8 update.

    Thus passes, reviled Chigakka down the blessed 43 steps.

    Just too many rebels forthegenerals to turn their attention to the late Khan. now the Horde needs a successful general who will take them back where they belong.

    Good work Duke, may I just ask how you're doing techwise?
    One does not simply walk into Mordor, but if one did, it would probably be the shortest walk ever.
