Bard II Torbjornsson Crovan
King of Norway and of Serbia
The Middle Years, 1421-1422
The details are hazy, and immaterial, what is important is that the Duke of Vidin has just provoked a war with every single Turkish nation on Earth.
What is even more important: the Duke of Vidin is my vassal.
*sigh* I guess I can’t put off this crusade anymore. Time to Take the Bard II them.
For the first time ever, I’m going to mobilize not just my demesne troops, but every one of my vassals.
What could possibly go wrong?
Even the dirty peasants support this war.
At least, they better…if they know what’s good for them.
Well now…all the other dirty Saracens have thrown their hats into the ring. I think Ossor’s Crusading Title is in serious jeopardy.
While I agree you were all a bit hasty in challenging the might of my Viking Hordes, I think we’re just going to see how things shake out a bit before I make any treaties.
You see, what is taking your little pile of gold compared to killed your entire family, destroying your serfs, burning your castles and
taking your little pile of gold…and your land.
This one I let keep his land, after he pledged undying fealty to the Crovan Crown. Oh, and got pillaged.
Two more of my enemies surrender lands in exchange for their lives.
This is almost too easy.
And another Turk switches sides. If I’d realized what a push-over these vile Saracens were, I would have attacked them years ago!
