    Red face

    Well, lets rock and roll.

    First thigs first heres me, surrounded by doom

    What a pleasent place, but since we are the Best Pope, we need to make sure no one else is called Pope, so we are going to attack "Not Best Pope".

    No need to look at pretty sliders now though...............okay Fine, have it your way, we move towards the Land slider


    Time to launch Operation: Cunning

    First things first, get Military acess through France, Savoy, and Milan. Then DoW against Not Best Pope. And Recruit some cannon fod..........I mean Soldiers.

    And my General got "meh" stats (nothing new here)


    I do blieve one famous Pope who's nickname is Salt (no idea why) once said: "No one likes Sardinia"............I can see why now


    *gasp* HOW DARE "Not Best Pope" CALL A CRUSADE!!!!!!!!!


    Here is Best Pope's plans, he made them himself


    Everything is going as he had forseen


    Lost one battle, but won the second battle (had to hire mercs to compensate losses)


    Got a new friend


    okay so i hit the pic limit so far, but i will make a second post for the result of the war. See you in a few.

    Well, it seems when ever i write one of these i get ******** die rolls, heres the 3rd battle of Romagna

    I did call my friend into battle (not pictured) and we got REVENGE!

    Even though Tuscany beat me to the seige, Fortune smiles at me

    So I may receive a bigger prize than i had originaly bargined for, or a stomping from France latter

    And heres amixed bag of news, Sardinia is no more But a new Pope was elected, and its not ME! Not Best Papal states won it!

    Oh, we got some fresh meat in this war

    And ofcoures THIS happens when I move on to Rome

    The balance of power may have tipped

    **************

    YES!!!!!!! Schism has ended!!!!!!!

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11 Victory


    So we have a VERY good start, I look forward to updating tomorrow. Anyone have any ideas on where to go next?

    I'm assuming there's no way to form the Papal State unless you get the proper event.

    Now you must conquer Italia of course!

    How many rebels can pop up in Rome? 10k at least? So you own Rome until the first rebellion, right?

    I don't think Avignon has an event to become Papal States, Oh well, that just means we'll conquer the other nations too in order to prove them wrong.

    Great, found this one in time to comment - I read your Saruhan AAR as well but you were already annexed. Very nice start here - unconventional, but I guess it has to be when you play Avignon. Hopefully you can keep your gains and later build on them.

    I actually thught of invading France at one point, but i wanted to survive instead. Another Option was the Iberian nations, but Castille is very picky about her neighbors it seems. I also thought about some of the german OPM's, but then i would be fighting an unwinnable War. So Italy was the only real safe place to expand too. but I have to worry about Naples now, but Hopefully, Aragon, or Sicily will weaken them for me.

    Oh, and Thank you for following.

    Am I the source of this idea I was discussing on the boards the ability to play a proper anti pope with curia and all.

    So where did His Holiness move to after you annexed the Papal State? The Holy See always pops up in some other Catholic theocracy if annexed (I think) with Avignon having a 50% chance of getting it.

    Not even close I'm afraid!
    Here's a hint. If you know what I'm talking about you should recognise it immediately.

    The same character often says "Mylord, I have a cunning plan!"


    Nice AAR btw

    Our nation's? True I know a few that know it well, but I hardly think it's limited to this place. The show is simply put the single most brilliant work of comedy I have ever seen. And I might add that I came to that conclusion completely on my own, it was not prescribed to me, I simply stumbled upon in on the internet, thought it was fantastic and bought the boxset.

    Now I'm kindof a walking source for quotes of "that show". Shall we tweak each other noses and dance in a circle exlaiming nonsensical phrases when someone names it? (yes, another reference)
