    Because he is Scottish and we do things a little differently here. besides CK is coded to make Scottish nobles take over all of Europe.

    Hmm, shouldn't have given that away huh.

    Splendid AAR, been lurk-reading it for a while now.

    No, no we won't. Find out next time on the next exciting episode of Real Men Do It Alphabetically, an AARgau!
    The woes of pre-made final sentences...

    Btw, not to call your ability to conquer the world into doubt, but if for some strange reason you do not conquer the entire known world alphabetically by 1453, maybe you could continue doing that in EU 2?

    It seems clear that the Scottish men have a very strange way of deciding things. Everyone else declining and then suddenly this Scottish man say yes. Still it is good that you managed to marry her away and now you got some nice prestige.

    Ida married off at last (she's only 16, what's the hurry?). At least he's an A or his Duchy is. Still, you're still stalled on Abauj. They can't be suffering from typhoid after all this time.

    Counting drips of prestige while growing mad from boredom.

    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 Kntling, Prince of Denmark (and other assorted tales))




    1081-1084



    Eh, why not? Normally I'd go for the other extreme, but Selfish comes with a negative prestige modifier while Generous is the opposite... Plus, I might get musical instruments!




    It will be all worth it if I get Musical Instruments...




    Damn!




    But I did get the Generous, though...




    And with my new rate of prestige I should be gaining 100 prestige points every... 40 years...




    Well, I guess I'll have to promote one of them Goseck boys to Marshal...




    This fellow has the right bearded grimace for the job! Also, 12 Martial points.




    And we shell out for a Sawmill, which has all the bonuses of a Forestry, except it costs one hundred and fifty ducats more.




    Meanwhile, now we can build things out of basilisks, I don't know what this tech does.

    I think it turns your soldiers to stone when they look at your province improvements. That's why your marshal tries so hard to burn them all down during war time.

    Your martial does look most suited to the job.

    Basilican structures are for churches, also needed are a tile factory and the next architecture level of brickwork structures. You'll be able to pray for divine assistance to take Abauj. Now you have a good marshal, war.
    As far as being there yet goes, you haven't set off yet.

    Martial 12 isn't bad. Intrigue 16 might be more useful though.
