    One True Faith.

    Chapter 6: Adana

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

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



    1119-1121



    The progeny of Rudolf von Habsburg, now huddled refugees in Oesterreich, so far on the list. How cruel, their fate.




    And a useless daughter born, if it weren't for the high martial stat. I could use her as a breeder for that down the line. Russian, too.




    All right, I knew giving power to the clerics would pay off! Now to crush those heathens in... Abydos?




    Nothing like putting your capital province to the sword to convert to another brand of Christianity to fire up the old drive!




    Well he's all right. Diplomacy could be better.




    The same burning bald guy that burned one of my marshals (or was it spymaster I don't know) a while back returns, but this time he wants to burn heathens! Hooray!




    Of course more money would be nice to offset the expensive cost of burning enough peasants to convince the rest to convert.




    Acre's now reduced to a fraction of its original prosperity, but at least they're not Muslim anymore!




    This guy's on fire!




    Three for three!



    Three provinces turned to the True Catholic Faith in as many years! Now the only province in the Duchy of Abydos that isn't Catholic are those crazy Abkhazians, but who cares about them? They're no harm just sitting there with their weird Georgian culture and the largest regiment in the realm. And just what will happen to Rudolf von Habsburg's children, far away in a distant land blah blah I don't care. Recoil in horror as you read the next exciting episode of Real Men Do It Alphabetically, an AARgau!

    It's really Rudolf returning from the grave with first hand experience of hell who is inspiring the heathens to convert. He will go to Abkhazia, too. It's his soul at stake as well. Then there's a visit to the Bishop of Osterreich to explain the kidnapping of his children.

    Hermann the Habsburg - it has a certain monstrous crushing quality associated with it.

    I guess that this bald bad madman is going to become one of the most popular secondary characters of this AAR... dunno why...

    I beg to differ. No Hapsburg daughter is ever useless. Contradiction in terms. There is always someone, somewhere, no matter how remote or insignificant who wants to marry a Hapsburg lass.

    Wow, it had been a while since I dropped in but ... you might actually pull this off!!

    In fact, by my calculations you will finish the letter A within 85.5 months, in the year 2014. Not that I'm being discouraging or anything. Oh no! No no no no no. No no nonono. Of course not.

    that was a very creepy row of smileys

    We're not off on the road to Adana.

    Chapter 6: Adana

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

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



    1122-1125



    A nearly irresistible wench? How can I resist?




    And thus is born the second Hermann von Habsburg. Will he compete with his older brother who is also named Hermann to be Stefan's most-loved son that is named Hermann? Of course not as obviously the legitimate son that has better stats anyways will get more love.




    Hehe I'm sending the Spanish von Habsburg to priest school! Get it? I need more bishops down the line, that's why.




    Man this new children being born stuff is BORING. I wish I could skip it like I did all those other BORING events.




    Only the Byzantines can take on a weakened child-led Muslim Kingdom that negotiated peace with a scattered 5-province Duchy and begin losing provinces in Anatolia...




    Despite having a good five-child bearing record Urraca still dies in the middle of childbirth.




    So I marry her von Habsburg husband to Stefan's sister-in-law because that is how I roll.




    HELL NO! (also how i roll btw)




    Man the saga of Abba-jammer was pretty boring. Flee to a Christian duchy a thousand miles away and hang around doing absolutely nothing until you die.




    And there goes Guntram von Habsburg, the most promising von Habsburg thus far.




    Waah waah waah we're not getting any closer to getting Adana. Waah waah all this stuff is boring. Waah waah waah. Recoil in horror as you read the next exciting episode of Real Men Do It Alphabetically, an AARgau!

    Shouldn't the tag line be

    Be bored to death as you read the next possibly exciting episode ...?

    What's this, habsburg younglings dying? It's what you get for denying the Hospitallers a castle. I don't understand you, turning down all those free troops they'll throw at you whilst you tackle the League of AL. Next time they won't ask , nicely.

    So we are back to children being born and then they die, I think you need to send a formal complaint to your insurance company about this… Let us hope that the next episode will be more interesting and that Real Men Will Do More Next Time…
