    Those rebels look like they're being a pain... But, of course, it's the Golden, I mean Black Horde we're talking about here...
    I'd talk about the kids, but it seems it's on pain of death. (And I had a joke to crack...)
    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.

    In future accounts I suspect he'll be known as Ulugh the Hairy.

    SunZyl - Khaness. Surely that can never happen. BB of 43/50

    Battle bunny - Thanks. Yip decided to help em out. Could have bad consequences perhaps.

    Bismarck1 - Who knows

    Grundius - The only revolter bordering the Horde was Mozyr, which has no fortress so I expect would have been taken back very soon.

    stnylan - Just a bit of warming up maybe?

    Chief Ragusa - India would be an interesting place to get into. I hope to some day.

    Battle bunny - Very true.

    J. Passepartout - Excellent proposal.

    The Real Deal - Thanks. I'm not sure, I just enjoy writing them I guess.

    Specialist290 - uzbek anarchists no doubt

    SirruShan - There's certainly been a good share of rebels.

    coz1 - More than likely

    billy bob - Three things right ain't a bad record for a Khan.

    Ulugh III : Part 2
    A banquet was held in Volgograd to mark the three year anniversary of Ulugh's ascension to the throne. It was overall an enjoyable time but for Lord Bunkada of Uralsk it was to be the beginning of a nightmare.

    He was overheard by Ulugh remarking that he particularly enjoyed the sport of 'hair-baiting'. Despite his protests that he had been misheard and was referring to bear baiting Ulugh would have none of it. Ulugh conceded that tar and hairing was beneath the dignity of a Lord. Instead he exiled Bunkada. He was sent to the depths of the dark continent to serve as an ambassador to Benin.

    Bunkada's new home

    Hair-baiting, the cause of the whole fuss


    The move caused some commotion amongst aristocratic circles. Bunkada had been a popular lord and his exile was an unwelcome move. Many saw it as the beginning of a megalomaniacal ruler.

    The Holy Golden Alliance was still in force with the Black Horde firmly at the helm. But with half of it's members now Christian some were claiming it could no longer call itself Holy at all. Their claims were to be strengthened as Ulugh made his next diplomatic move.

    He invited the pagan rulers of the homeland into the alliance and they accepted. It was a shocking move. Mongolia surely could not be worthy of being aligned to the Horde. Those with understanding of international affairs failed to even see a single advantage in it for the Horde.

    The original Horde joins the Holy Golden Alliance


    But Ulugh claimed he had plans for Mongolia, though he refused to divulge them. The first came to fruition shortly. Maps of each nations known lands were exchanged. It seemed that even the Mongolians had little knowledge of what lay beyond them. So Ulugh took the matter upon himself and dispatched a brave explorer to find what lay within the off-white of the far east.

    Ghazi and his men bravely face the off-white armed with swords, horses, shields and blankies


    What lay there though would never become known to Ulugh. In a manner unbefitting a Khan he passed away without a single sharp object embedded in him. Instead he died of an illness that struck hard and fast in the summer of 1699 and unresponsive to any medical treatment.

    The Horde's top doctors were baffled by the disease

    Well, it hasn't quite conquered the homeland, but it's close enough. Pity about Ulugh's illness, and an even greater pity that the doctors that tried to heal him only had qualifications in treating head injuries. And they can't even do that properly... (I've seen it on YouTube. I love Monty Python )

    What a sad end for a Khan to die of a stranged illness. He'll be known as Ulugh the Sick for all eternity. Not quite the epithet Ulugh wanted, but his actions in bringing in Christian and Pagans into the Holy Golden Alliance were a little hard to understand.

    That is some BB you have there. A Khan with an astronimcal DIP rating would be very welcome.

    Now a traditional claim the throne time for horde generals. After the help the Poles got, I wonder if they'll help out?

    Are you sure he wasn't poisoned?

    Exploration returns!

    Unfortunate by-product of unsupervised use of Theodoran hair products. If only he hadn't killed every hair product consultant, before they had explained how to use the items. (Or is that the wrong AAR?)

    Ah Ghazi departs into the off-white. We'll never see him again!

    An alliance with Christians and Pagans called "Holy"?

    That is sure to cause revolts, isn't it?

    Horde and Horde gets closer to finally merging. Althought it might have effects similar to nuclear fusion, wiping out everyone.

    Do I detect the crumbling of an empire due to over ambition? A good civil war perhaps?

    Yes I have just slogged through 70 pages of AAR, well not just, it's been gradual, but I've been here since page 30! Woo!

    ...and I've finally gotten around to writing a post...

    Great idea! How about a three-way split: Chose one follow-up nation, that one can reclaim the G/B Horde mantle upon furfilling certain conditions. Kinda like the split of the Timurid Empire and the resulting nations being able to become the Mughals. Harder to code than a set of revolts however, but it might be a nice challenge.
