Shetland: A World Conquest DV AAR
Chapter I: Shetland - Barren and Useless
1066 - 1067
Not many words, but lots of pictures (which some I have forgotten to take)
My name is Togeir of Shetland.
My face is permanently stuck in this expression of angst.
I'm not sure what happened but I woke up one morning and it was just like that.
I blame Shetland.
This is Shetland.
It is very barren...
I'm tempted to pillage it for entertainment.
Frankly. I'm the only one in my family who hasn't picked up and left to be homeless beggars in other courts or committed suicide.
And apparently my only other court member wants to get the hell out.
A relative I didn't know I had wants to leave too.
Apparently sending this wenches off to foreign lands helps me with my prestige or something.
I suppose that is the only goods that Shetland produces.
Hey at least my Coat of Arms isn't a sheep.
Before I get into a mess. I decide to change my laws to exclude any of my sisters or daughter children in line for the throne.
Not like I've got any sisters or daughters to worry about on this barren island.
It spent me a year of sending repeated requests to actually get a wife to come up here.
Her Dowry is more than a years income up here.
All this marriage is making me look important or something.
I don't have any redemening qualities other than the fact I have all these local women showing up at my court to get married off.
Unfortunatley I was born into a world where I can't go off and live in my wife's court, so I suppose I'll do the next best thing and take someone elses.
Unfortunatley I was born into a world where my army isn't that great and I suppose I'll have to beat up on someone who is even more poor than me.
At least it will be a road trip.
