    One would think Real Men would at least be able to stand their own with Real Women, but I suppose experience shows otherwise. Bah!

    Poor Aleppo. That's what happens when you get in the way of a Real Man and his alphabet. Just be careful not to conquer it.

    "The deepest furrows"? Er... what manner of furrows are we talking about, here? And is it just me, or are furrows not particularly deep? Maybe "the deepest canyon" or something of the like might be more appropriate?

    Slapping Aleppo.

    Chapter 11: Aintab

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

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



    1141-1142



    Yes we are battling with Aleppo. Why? Because it's in the way.




    Yes prestige nice




    Meanwhile it is noted that Dobromir Cherven has died a death. The Byzantines celebrate the improvement in stability that the crowning of a Stressed, Severely Wounded Pneumoniac as the Emperor will bring




    And Petros von Habsburg must have REALLY slacked off during monastery school! Finishing his education at Age 21!




    Oh, and the Aleppoans are defeated.




    Very defeated!




    And NOW do we go to war with the unrightful holders of Aintab!




    The Panty-thieves or whatever are ready for us.




    Will the outcome of this battle be a nail-biting cliffhanger that will cause you to not be able to wait a minute longer for the next update to come up because you are anticipating this outcome so much?




    No! Because we win, and this fact is in this update itself!



    Wow, what an exciting non-cliffhanger! I bet that if it had been a cliffhanger you would all be talking about what would happen in the comments. But you aren't because there is no need to! As you can see one of the themes of this AAR is that too much knowledge can be... a bad thing... Tune in next time and see what will happen in the next exciting episode of Real Men Do It Alphabetically, an AARgau!

    The Byzantine elective law is brilliant in selecting the most incompetent individual for the job-this happens in all CK games, except those where Alexios gets elected and has the good sense to change it. I love the bit about Petros the challenged.

    The result of the battle would be the one screen that did not download for me. Now you can besiege and take the province. Will Brittany be reasonable and quickly cede Aintab? How will your army cross back out again?

    Though I would normally not answer this to increase suspense for the next update, I feel unusually dedicated to revealing the premature truth! Brittany will be reasonable and my troops will get back out again by disbanding!

    Habsburg luck and gameplay trick still working. I hope this means that the next update will start the Akerhaus connection.

    Petros is a martial cleric (handy for Durham) and a decent commander.

    I'd cheer, but since beating the French Panty-Thieves of Brittany isn't very much of an achievement for Real Men, I'll just continue quietly watching.

    Aintab ain't theirs no more.

    Chapter 11: Aintab

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

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



    1142




    Hehe. Like THAT's gonna happen.




    Greedy females, always dying and taking their children with them! Why can't they leave their children?




    And well that was predictable.




    If it was just me against the County I must admit the peace would not come so easily. However they have the Kingdom of Germany to deal with as well.




    Which is why they accept.




    And the tons of BB accrued in obtaining Aintab will hopefully be offset by the appointment of the Diocese Marshal as the Bishop.




    And the Diocese Marshal is replaced with another.




    I also give all my money to the Duke of Brittany for peace.




    Hooray!




    And a look at the monetary situation!



    And at last, Aintab is added! I don't know what this makes my BB but I bet it's pretty high! And it will get higher with the next updates, as I take on another Christian-owned province! Or will I? Is there perhaps a very interesting twist that will give the von Habsburgs unholy amounts of power while keeping their Alphabetical status? Or maybe you will have to wait two updates for this? Tune in next time and see what will happen in the next exciting episode of Real Men Do It Alphabetically, an AARgau!

    Back to Norway. If that isn't a Christian-owned province, something, besides your playing, is wrong here.
    Snake IV used to be a regular, but not anymore. You might, however, come across him at rare occasions, but that is so seldom you'll manage.

    Let me see. Now that Ute has conveniently keeled over or fallen down the stairs prepared just in case new arrival was a resend to sender, a new wife is needed. Given the way Hapsburg luck works the Akerhaus province will be ruled by a female of marriageable age and will agree to the wedding. That tactic never works for me.

    Those greedy grasping hapsburgs aren;t goingto get theuir hands on the papacy and/or become papal controller, are they?
