"'Religious faith. Belief in daemons, belief in spirits, belief in an afterlife and all the other trappings of a preternatural existence, simply existed to make us all more comfortable and content in the face of a measureless cosmos. They were sops, bolsters for the soul, crutches for the intellect, prayers and lucky charms to help us through the darkness. But we have witnessed the cosmos now, my friends. We have passed amongst it. We have learned and understood the fabric of reality. We have seen the stars from behind, and found they have no clockwork mechanisms, no golden chariots carrying them abroad. We have realized there is no need for god, or any gods, and by extension no use any longer for daemons or devils or spirits."
Oh, would you look at that...
Yes, I will admit I did make the mistake of not placing nationalist rebels around Venice's provinces during the war or prior to. That is a mistake, but I will make up for it in the next war.
At least I got Byzantine.

Ulm has no navy, yes? Did you march through Hungary and Serbia? And... Epirus/Whoever that is in Janina?
Be nice to your fellow human beings, they're the only fellow species members you have!
Ulm? Famous things....hm....maybe the church, but else?
Oh noez... Well, you can conquer the City for your own use, right?
Yay, more Ulm!

Only bad things can come from having Byzantines sneaking about your court. Release Athens sez I.

Who is this Tunch Khan? I thought Djem de Sayd was the only Ottoman Pretender the Christians had their hands on? ~ aylo1

Agreed. Those greek provinces will involve you in Ottoman wars. You and Byzantium won't be able to withstand the Turk. And right now you are in heartland Europe, but once you have Venice ...
