    But I think it's much more fun to stick with the original plan! Or, you could try getting titles in alphabetical order. There aren't so many Al's in the title list

    (Edit: Ummm, there are, of course, actually more Al's in the title list. I meant non-count titles. Doh!)

    A tile-factory, well that gives you a nice little boost. And I agree no point in using gold on some silly teacher for the girl when all you need her for is marrying her away. As for the amount of pyramids in Abauj, I fear they might actually build a lot of them…

    The death of a rival.

    Chapter 1: Abauj

    As told with many pictures. And a moderate amount of words.

    (All formats, fonts, layouts, and even this little disclaimer stolen blatantly from phargle's
    Knud Knýtling, Prince of Denmark (and other assorted tales))




    1080-1081




    Woohoo! With a marriageable daughter, this means that Berthold of Aargau's line can continue! His descendants shall rise strong and rule Aargau with a glorious fist! What obstacle could possibly stop this from happening?




    Oh.




    She could have become the Archdeaconess of Mars for all I care, with Berthold of Aargau impotent she's going to another court where I'll never care about her again.




    DO YOU SEE?




    DO YOU SEE?




    My old foe, Belenik Oeroesur, is dead. One less man to assassinate when the time comes, I suppose.




    Well, that's nice, and- Wait, who?




    Apparently I caught a refugee woman and her children fleeing from another court for some reason. This happens, and the game never informs you, too.




    And if you're keeping track, that's 7 daughters in a row.




    How will an of Aargau rule Aargau now? To which creepy 40-year-old man will 16-year-old Ida von Habsburg be married off to for a pittance of gold and prestige? Will these refugee-children grow into gifted ministers or will they be lousy louts whose only use will be dying and cluttering up the court? Just how many daughters will Almos Oeroesur have? Find out next time on the next exciting episode of Real Men Do It Alphabetically, an AARgau!

    Hope you are able to marry her away to someone that will aid in your struggle to conquer the world in alphabetical order, I presume on of the counties beginning on A would be a good choice. But I do think you have a lot of strange people in your court, it seems half of them are mad or something I wonder why…

    Brilliant as usual. That Archdeaconess remark made me laugh.

    Loved how you made a reference to Event Horizon

    Also if you wanted to try an AAR starting with Z, do it with the Muslim mod.

    Abauj is doing a better job of providing daughters for the marriage game than von Habsburg. Orusur could soon require a new wife, courtesy of a spymaster.

    Ow my chest. please make him stop. It hurts.

    Great AAR. Guess I am going to have to follow this one. Phew, close thing too, I got in just before your first conquest!

    Talking of which, how's your wife? Werner's wife I mean.

    Aye.

    Marriage is confusing.

    Chapter 1: Abauj

    As told with many pictures. And a moderate amount of words.

    (All formats, fonts, layouts, and even this little disclaimer stolen blatantly from phargle's
    Knud Knýtling, Prince of Denmark (and other assorted tales))




    1081




    Will your prestigious spy master-man marry my daughter?




    Damn.




    Will your prestigious Marshal-guy marry my daughter?




    Damn.




    Will your moderately prestigious steward marry my daughter?




    Damn.




    What about this random, no-nothing courtier that just happens to have a small, nonzero amount of prestige to his name?




    Still no? Wow! Just what depths will I have to sink to to find a marriage for my daughter?




    Oh.




    And I get paid, too. That's nice.

    Yeah, I'd normally type something here with some helpful hints about the marriage system, but I haven't the dickens how the mechanics work either. And apparently the game also doesn't. Or at least the Duke of Argyll doesn't.




    Just what will that crazy ol' Duke of Argyll do next? Will we ever hear of Ida von Habsburg ever again now that she has fulfilled her use of marrying a very prestigious, highly-titled man, thus earning the good ol' Count of Aargau beaucoup prestige and some cash as well? No, no we won't. Find out next time on the next exciting episode of Real Men Do It Alphabetically, an AARgau!
