To play realistically like what it would have really been no going to the Americas unless competition ask for it.
So if anyone is expecting to see a world conquest look elsewhere
50 or so Mameluks ran into the throne room killing all in there path. There leader cuts down the heir to the Ayyubid throne. They then instate them as rulers of Egypt, Libya, Jerusalem, Lebanon and Syria. They are Shiite Muslims even though most of there population is Sunni.
The vast Mameluks Empire had grown a war with the black sheep, also known as Qara Koyunlu, who would be gone soon as there arch enemies, Al Koyunlu, march towards there capital.
Looking over the map the kings came to a conclusion that, there was only two enemies that would endanger the sultan those where: Al Koyunlu
And the Timurid empire
So they aimed at defending those borders and training armies to fight enemies like them. What a mistake this would be as for there is a small nation growing. a power that had been there for a long time. but not making any head way now it was on a charge… the Mameluks would pay dearly for this misjudgement and would pay dearly for not upgrading there army with the latest technology… no one knows if this growing empire would rise to what some feared, but if so Europe would pay in blood for over looking this new power.
p.s. i hope this one last long than my last!
