Further; the notion that any player has any special 'right' to some specific set of pixels is in and of itself silly and applicable only in the form of roleplay. Of course there is a double standard, to draw it to its extreme; you and your allies gaining power=good and justified, your enemies gaining power=evil magiks and unlawful aggression. Vassals pledging to you=they are seeking refuge from the bad guys, you vassals pledging to somebody else=vassal theft.
Ok, its not quite that extreme, but you get my point. Some of us are into realpolitiks, others rp. Some envision mighty empires, others small traderepubliks. Our only real justification is "I wanted it" or "Taking it made sense strategically", and their reverse on the opposing side, the rest is just fluff. And nothing we should get to riled up over in the name of "justification", it's a computergame after all.

Great comic, Frosty, if about as factually accurate as an average Jack Chick pamphlet. (Your art is better, though.)
Touching IrshFaq's immortal, I'll resurrect him on the same terms as applied to Blayne's Rasputin: Consistent updates for a short period.
I repeat my remarks on the peace: You do not have the power to enforce the terms you're demanding; and Constantinople will be handed over when my last demesne province falls, and not before.

you guys are even better whiner's than I am (when actually involved in something), I think we can make this a proper megagampaing after all
could someone now post what we are demaning at the moment?
What we have on the ground is a stalemate, should the war continue we will eventually win by grinding attrition. That or the Mongols will make a move and end it for us...
We're still at the original map, the orientals have not yet made a substantial counterproposal.what we are demanding at the moment?
Or the Danes and allies will step in with "Peacekeeping" forces at strategic places... -If you carry on they might even release the Ynglings !!!
You are mistaken Frosty. You have been losing at twice the rate of us, hence why the ratio is still 2:1.
But we are repeating ourselves, and I think there is little to ad beyond what has been said. Now is the time for us to hear how you propose this war you have stated should end. Preferably with maps.
at this point I would love to have some deeplevel (non byzophile) peunut analysis of the war situation and all sides changes to continue it trough another session...
Also, as Im not the main belligrent, I wont comment on the demands that much, I haven't been part of making them, but at this point its in our nations best intress to let Russia/Egypt to do that part...However, I would just want to say that, as the situation in OOC wise has allready derailed into the typical MP ragecircle of:"But you demaned x amount of provinces in last war, so its fair that I can demand at least 1.5x this time!"...
...so to end that circle, with little gains migth proven out to be better peace in long term than forcily hammer trough demands of all unconquested claims from the past.
So, you suggest that we take only a fraction of what they've taken in their last war, and then wait for them to attack and make massive demands again?
Yes, that sounds wise.
I would have been satisfied with the land i had prior to this war, but both of you started to make very threatening noices.
