    An update! Fantastic!

    A Mad Emperor already, why am I not suprised?

    Also, a big hello to aristos_achaion, magicdonkey99 (love the name) and Hashoosh - I always love getting new readers, so now that I've given you all a month to catch up *coughs* you'll be completely up to date with what's happening.
    I have no idea why I chose that name... Thanks for the hello anyway

    Simple easy goals like conquering Rome are just what a fresh emperor needs.

    I like how a Suenikian emperor goes crazy within the first year on the throne.

    Looks like the mighty Suenik empire is going to put some nuns on the run. I gather the Pope will be moving to someplace dreary like Ireland after the next update.

    Hurrah! It's back! And with extra madness! I like the symmetry of having Krikor I as a mad pagan and Krikor II's son (maybe he should go by Krikor III?) a mad orthodox-fanatic.

    Watch out though, it looks as though the Pope thinks he can be Emperor as well!

    I just read this entire AAR and I must say, I laughed, I cried. I learned the grigor defense, and I'm mistrustful of females named Mira.

    Pope is in trouble ...or is he? It still is Suenik after all

  10. #1070
    Suenik seems to be operating under a form of Murphey's law.

    Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. In the worst possible fashion and worst possible time.

    Krikor II seems to have had his act together...and then he dies, which will surely demonstrate that Murphey was just waiting for the right opportunity.

    Ignoring that his son is a true Gardman-Aghbania (i.e., insane), even. If that's the worst Suenik has to worry about, Murphey is slacking.

    I can see. In my DVIP, it breaks up from the start, with no way of returning. The fact that it's still here, bodes very bad for the next updates, noe that he's got an insane ruler.

    Yeah, what gives? Suenik hasn't had a good catastrophe for several rulers.

    This is the "Suenik the Beleaguered" AAR, right?

    And its too late for a Mongol invasion that will eat Suenik for lunch. Something has really gone wrong if Suenik kings are able to actually succeed at ruling large areas...

    But not the kind of wrong that is supposed to happen in Suenik.

    Good point, the "Beleaguered" part might need a boost

    Here's hoping then the RL permits an update soon. Suenik's tale seems almost over, unless this gets converted to the next game. But I think expecting a megacampaign might be unrealistic.

    well, now that things are back to "normal", we can expect great things from our beloved Suenik, yes ? ?

    Just finished reading the last 54 pages and all I can say is, "Awesome!" Like many, I wasn't expecting much fun out of Krikor II, but he managed to be one of the greatest rulers yet.

    Also, "Mleh" now tops the list of coolest names.
