    Well actually he does, but by the time his ugliness showed he was too old to be kicked down the stairs.

    And now he rules Agen...

    Given the unusual lack of a plentiful Hapsburg family tree, ugliness is just to be tolerated. Real Men don't need physical beauty to achieve their goals. I think the Hapsburgs are missing the usual feeling of support from a compact group of family holdings. all these scattered territories are an anathema to the ordered Teutonic mind.

    Lack of family tree? Which AAR have you been reading, boy? Here's a picture of Hermann son of Stefan von Habsburg from back in 1139. He has eleven siblings.



    And that's just Stefan's children, and that's just 1139!

    73 years and only 11 sibs. That's not a tree, just a branch and you kicked most of them down the stairs! There should be a hundred female Habsburgs married to an assortment of counts, dukes and kings and whose offspring will de out just when you need them.

    I just saw the new and improved front page. You called us Cathars!

    Oh, and congrats for that award thing you won and noone else did...

    Actually the Cathar bit was there from the very beginning. All I changed was turning the List into an index, which I should be improving right now but I won't. :nods:

    The CYnfyn's are coming, the Cynfyn's are coming! So did the Fatimids kick them out or was it the English?

    I'm surprised you've made it this far. When I saw the list, I thought you'd be lucky if you made it to the B's, but you seem to be steamrolling along.

    Congrats on the win

    The power and the piety, the piety and the power.

    Chapter 12: Akershus

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

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



    1143-1144




    And look what I found one day when I loaded up my latest save of Crusader Kings! Apparently loading a save somehow gave to me the responsibility of being the Papal Controller! Hopefully I won't abu-




    Take that, Akershus!




    And let's confirm it just for fun! Oh, it's great having power!




    And of course, having the Papal Controllership fall into my hands is surely God's way of telling me that I'm right to embark on this alphabetical quest.




    But before we continue I continue the line of the Cynfyns, a Welsh family that's in my court for some reason, because I'm too lazy to search for a husband abroad.




    Also yet another son is born whose default intrigue and stewardship stats are preferable to my immediate heirs apparent.




    And yet another significant chapter of Hermann von Habsburg's life that is dismissed in a single line of a single update.




    And now the march to war begins, with the good old trusty Aargau regiment under good old trusty Petros von Habsburg heading north!




    Meanwhile the loyalty of the Bishopric of Abauj gets a bump. Because the bishop of the only Duke in the entire game that has more than 700 piety really needed a bump there.




    Meanwhile Barbara von Habsburg wastes her high base Intrigue score on a diplomatic education. Not as if she could have replaced the 17-intrigue Scotswoman that currently occupies that spot anyways.


    What were those fools thinking, granting to me control over the Papacy? Don't they know what unbridled power brings in the hands of a human player? I think I'll laugh maniacally now. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA The answer will be revealed in the next exciting episode of Real Men Do It Alphabetically, an AARgau!

    They know you're about to go on crusade against the league of Al. Naturally, you'll invite all your friends along.

    A diplomacy rating of 6 is just the score for a charismatic negotiator.

    God surely smiles upon your alphabetical, benign, competent, devout, exciting, fortuitous, glorious, holy, inspired, just, kind, lofty, mighty, noble, outstanding, pious, questing, regal, spiritual, triumphant, ultimate, virtuous, wise, xenophobic* yet Zen-like mission!

    (And God surely hates me for writing descriptive words in alphabetical order.)

    *Xenophobic is not negative in this usage. After all, you have a right to fear the outside world, for they don't understand the true nature of the Holy Alphabetical Crusade!

    Love the tag. All of Hermann von Hapsburg's life can be dismissed in a single line.

    Knorr's chicken stock cubes. You had two tuchters talking to each other. One was saying the wife was hard at work in the kitchen making soup (when in fact she wasn't hard at work cos she was using this product) and the other teuchter goes 'well thats devotion fer ye'

    I actually liked MM's alphabetical post and that line hit me. Parallel thinking boyo.
