    For once, I thought I would amend your events
    About GTA_388000, I see that you kept the loss on infra in action B. I thought you were for removal.
    About the CPA event, why adding that action b? In case, there should be some more bad facts: - btv and/or - infra and/or - stab and/or - adm for some time...

    The action C should be still triggered with AMI or NAP existing, and action D should be very expensive.

    Ok, good, should we make them province events with a trigger that the owner is Christian?

    Because these are still your events, those are only my proposals. You will have noticed that I only modified triggers, dates and commands triggering/sleeping events. The rest is up to you.

    B - To leave the player with a choice, yes it should bring bad things, but cost no money.
    C - Yes.
    D - Not very, it should require some money but not so much as the Saracens will be weakened by the disappearance of their Gaetan protectors.

    About post #19, it all looks good.

    Now, while I was testing the AI choices, it occured to me once that SPL_382000 B was picked. So ITA was stuck with revolts due to the Spoletan party, while Wido had renounced the Crown.

    I think SPL_382000 should be given ITA_228003's trigger and dates so that Wido first says if he wants to press his claim. Then ITA_228003 would be triggered by SPL_382000 A. What do you think?

    Yes, I have thought about this, even if we could assume that Berengario had tamed the Spoletan rebels. But you are right, it is better to start the sequence with SPL making decisions.

    In case, we couldn't need any longer event ITA_228027 as 228029 or 228030 will reset province RR or change the event to give info to the player.

    EDIT: Should I amend post #19 or keep it untouched and post an update? I'd prefer to have updates and new suggestions in following posts as to keep track. As much as for the new suggestions for Capua events.

    This is an update to post #19.

    About Italy being vassal of the kingdom of East Franks before the struggle between Guido di Spoleto and Berengario del Friuli:
    Code:
    event = {

    	trigger = {

    		command = { type = trigger which = 384005 } #NST: The Kingdom of the West Franks
    	}
    }
    a little tweak in the description:

    After Charles the Fat's death, the Empire was split in kingdoms and kings were elected by great nobles. In late February 888, Eudes, marquis de Neustrie and Comte de Paris, managed to get himself elected King of West Franks by an assembly of nobles. Those were mostly his close vassals and allies. The other powerful Marquis, in Aquitaine, Auvergne, Bourgogne, Flandres were not there and only the Archbishop of Reims, Foulques, attempted to oppose the victor of the Normans only two years before, by defending the candidacy of the only Carolingian left in Francia, Charles, son of King Louis le Bègue (877-879). Guy, duc de Spolète, also of Carolingian descendency, hoped for the title which actually got a couple of weeks after at Langres.




    in following event I think we need to change some text: instead of "his" I'd suggest to use "Berengario"... more clear now.
    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 205031
    	trigger = {
    		ITA = { monarch = 064500 } #Berengario I
    	}
    	country = GER
    
    	name = "Anarchy in the Kingdom of Italy"
    	desc = "."
    
    	date = { day = 0 month = january year = 888 }
    	offset = 360
    	deathdate = { day = 29 month = december year = 888 889 } 
    
    	action = {
    		name = "Require his Request Berengario's submission"
    		command = { type = trigger which = 228025 } #ITA: The submission to the German King Arnulf, King of the Eastern Franks
    	}
    	action = {
    		name = "We are not interested in Italian affairs"
    		command = { type = DIP which = -2 value = 24 }
    		command = { type = relation which = ITA value = 50 }
    	}
    }
    untouched description:

    After Charles the Fat's death, the Empire was split in kingdoms and kings were elected by great nobles. In Northern Italy the local nobles elected Berengario, Margrave of Friuli and Louis the Pious' grandson, as King of Italy. But still Berengario didn't acknowledge the newly elected Emperor and king of the East Franks, Arnulf of Carinthia, as his liege. Arnulf moved an army towards Trento, ready to siege Verona.



    Here are the modification to the starting event of the sequence with Wido and Berengar fighting for the Italian crown:
    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 382000 #triggered by ITA_228003 A (888)
    	country = SPL
    	trigger = {
    		ITA = { 
    			monarch = 064500 #Berengario I
    		}
    		event = 205032 #GER: Berengar's submission
    		OR = {
    			event = 384000 #NST: The Kingdom of the West Franks 
    			event = 384005 #NST: The Kingdom of the West Franks
    		}
    	}   
    
    	name = "The Kingdom of the Lombards"
    	desc = "."
    
    	date = { day = 0 month = january year = 888 }
    	offset = 30 
    	deathdate = { day = 29 month = december year = 888 }
    
    	action = {
    		name = "Attempt to seize the Crown"
    		command = { type = stability value = -1 }
    		command = { 
    			trigger = { 
    				vassal = { country = ITA country = SPL }
    			}
    			type = breakvassal which = ITA
    		}
    		command = { type = relation which = ITA value = -400 }
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 521 } #Pentapolis
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 522 } #Umbria
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 527 } #Parma
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 528 } #Ravenna
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 529 } #Ferrara
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 662 } #Secusia
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 663 } #Ventimiglia
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 664 } #Liguria
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 665 } #Aquae
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 666 } #Novara
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 667 } #Milan
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 668 } #Placentia
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 669 } #Brescia
    		command = { type = addcore_claim which = 670 } #Mantua
    		command = { type = war which = ITA }
    		command = { type = inf which = 519 value = 8000 } #Spoletium
    		command = { type = cav which = 519 value = 4000 } #Spoletium
    		command = { type = trigger which = 228003 } #ITA: Guido's aim at the Italian crown
    	}
    	action = {
    		name = "We dare not"
    		command = { type = relation which = ITA value = 200 }
    		command = { type = sleepevent which = 382001 } #SPL: The taking of Pavia
    		command = { type = trigger which = 228027 } #ITA: Berengar's legitimation
    	}
    }
    As I said in other posts, SPL should start as vassal of ITA together with TOS so we can remove the command from 228003 B.
    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 228003 #triggered by SPL_382000 A FRA_198000 A / B(888) 
    	trigger = {
    		monarch = 064500 #Berengario I
    	} 
    	country = ITA
    
    	name = "Guido's aim at the Italian crown"
    	desc = "."
    
    	action = {
    		name = "We keep Berengario del Friuli as king"
    		command = { type = setflag which = [Feudal_Anarchy] }
    		command = { type = stability value = -3 }
    		command = { type = revolt which = 662 } #Spoletan party in Ivrea
    		command = { type = revolt which = 665 } #Spoletan party in Pavia
    		command = { type = revolt which = 665 }
    		command = { type = revolt which = 667 } #Spoletan party in Milan
    		command = { type = revolt which = 667 }
    		command = { type = revolt which = 668 } #Spoletan party in Placentia
    		command = { type = revolt which = 668 }
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 662 value = 30 } #Secusia
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 666 value = 30 } #Novara
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 665 value = 30 } #Aquae
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 667 value = 30 } #Milan
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 668 value = 30 } #Placentia
    		command = { type = revoltrisk which = 60 value = 20 }
    		command = { type = trigger which = 382000 } #SPL: The Kingdom of the Lombards
    	}
    	action = {
    		name = "We acknowledge Guido di Spoleto"
    		command = { type = wakemonarch which = 064501 } #Guido
    		command = { type = wakemonarch which = 064502 } #Lamberto
    		command = { type = independence which = FRL }
    		command = { type = independence which = IRA }
    		command = { type = vassal which = SPL } reason: redundant
    		command = { type = trigger which = 228024 } #ITA: Strenghtening the throne
    		command = { type = trigger which = 382003 } #SPL: Guido IV
    	}
    }
    in following event we now have another issue, what if Italy isn't vassal to Germany? A solution would be to remove the part about Arnulf's legitimation or modify the event description for SPL_382000, ITA_228003, FRL_390000 like this:

    After Charles the Fat's death, the Empire was split in kingdoms and kings were elected by great nobles. Seeing his candidacy for the King of West Franks rejected by the Magnates, Guido di Spoleto turned his ambitions to the crown of the Kingdom of Italy currently held by Berengario del Friuli who was legitimated by Arnulf King of the Eastern Franks. in spite of Arnulf's imperial claims in Italy as King of East Franks.





    We can keep ITA_228027, but we would change the text to inform the ITA player of the avoided risk of revolts:
    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 228027 #triggered by SPL_382000 B (889-894)
    	random = no
    	country = ITA
    
    	name = "Berengar's legitimation victory"
    	desc = "King Berengario kept his crown on his head as Guido di Spoleto renounced his aim to rule over Northern Italy."
    	
    	action = {
    		name = "Good"
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 662 value = -30 } #Secusia
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 666 value = -30 } #Novara
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 665 value = -30 } #Aquae
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 667 value = -30 } #Milan
    		command = { type = province_revoltrisk which = 668 value = -30 } #Placentia
    		command = { type = revoltrisk which = 48 value = -10 }
    		command = { type = stability value = 1 }
    		command = { type = ADM which = 1 value = 24 }
    	}
    }
    NEW description:

    After Emperor Charles the Fat's death, the Magnates in the Kingdom of the West Franks elected Eudes, marquis de Neustrie and Comte de Paris, as their new ruler. Seeing his candidacy rejected, Guido di Spoleto turned his ambitions to Italy but he found in Berengario del Friuli a fierceful contender to the crown.

    Good work with fixing things, thanks.


    About the 915 league, I hope we can reach a consensus. I have had no time to present my arguments like I promised in a previous post. I should be able to post something tomorrow.

    Ok. I have seen Kreutz's pages about the participation of the Pope in the league. Probably it has something to do with the people making chronicles embellishing facts concerning Popes... ;-)

    In this case if Teofilatto was the real master of Rome, we could assume he had an important part in that coalition because of its influence? After all, because of the successful campaign against the Saracens in Garigliano, Alberico of Spoleto married Marozia and Berengario got the crown.
    About Gaeta, its about-face, or its not doing anything, had something to do with the ducal title they got from Byzantium, iirc.

    Ok, it is good that you have the book. I will make my points shortly then, as you can read about them by yourself.


    About Berengario's involvement. We have note 15. on page 181 which tells us that it has sometimes been erroneously stated Berengar was involved as well. This is confirmed by another book I have, 'L'Italie au Moyen Age (Ve-XVe siècle)' by Jean-Pierre Delumeau and Isabelle Heullant-Donat, where it is told that 'Certes, [Bérenger] ne participa pas à la grande coalition anti-sarrasine de 915, ...'.

    About GTA. Yes BYZ handed over titles of patricius imperialis to many south Italian rulers, see note 43. on page 177 about that. PAP also seems to have played a decisive role in their rallying, see p.78.

    About CPA-BEN's embassies to BYZ. This is detailed in p.77, it would seem that the earliest embassy was around 910, maybe 909 but not much sooner. Then the decisive one only took place in 914, I am not sure we need the previous ones. Also given the note I mentioned above about GTA, I am not convinced that CPA should become a vassal of BYZ on this occasion.

    About PAP and GTA, I have also read in a note that probably the Pope crowned Berengario emperor as a favour exchange in order to press claim to Gaeta, note 14 on page 181.

    But Berangario seemed to do nothing after he took the crown.

    A consideration about note 15. I undestand that Berengario didn't take part, but as I told you, Alberico of Spoleto would probably have intervened under Berengario's assent as he was his vassal.

    Could we assume that the Pope rewarded Berengario because of the new relations with Spoleto after years of crisis? I can't find anything more specific about that.

    Yes, I remember note 14. but it looks like nothing came out of it, or do you think that PAP should get a claim/casusbelli core if they accept to crown Berengar? As far as I can remember this is exactly why I did not script anything about Berengar's imperial coronation, he does not seem to have gained anything from it. Some time ago, you asked me about my sources for Northern and Central Italy.

    Apart from the French book I quoted above, I have 'Naissance de deux peuples - Français et Allemands (IXe-XIe siècle)' by Carlrichard Brühl, mostly useful for the Ottonian interventions of course, but it has a passage about Berengar and Wido, and it does not mention anything between 915 and 923.

    I also have 'The New Cambridge Medieval History, Vol. III', chapter 'The kingdom of Italy', by Giuseppe Sergi, only mentions that, soon after his coronation, Berengar had to face a hostile coalition including not only Tuscany and Ivrea but also the archbishop of Milan and Alberic of Spoleto. This culminated in 923 with the call to Rudolf of Burgundy.

    No, no core. It was just to give some appropriate descriptions in the events I have in mind.

    I also have 'The New Cambridge Medieval History, Vol. III', chapter 'The kingdom of Italy', by Giuseppe Sergi, only mentions that, soon after his coronation, Berengar had to face a hostile coalition including not only Tuscany and Ivrea but also the archbishop of Milan and Alberic of Spoleto.

    Yes, I have this source too, even if abridged. Events about Burgundian intervention were actually my next step after the Garigliano Arabs.

    I hope I will be able to write a proper chain of events for the Garigliano Arabs in the days to come, as I was very busy in the last weeks, apart from some agceep debugging... ;-)

    @Bordic, mostly.

    About Capua-Benevento, the more I think about it, the more I think it has been a mistake to handle it through vassalization. Yes, the co-rulers were nominally princes of Benevento, but de facto the two rulers always acted together as only one political entity between 900 and 981. So, I think one should inherit the other, but which one? We could even create a new tag, as they are now unlimited, for 'Capua-Benevento'. I know I did it for Castile-Leon.

    About the Byzantine cores, I was thinking of opening a new thread 'Byzantine Empire' to discuss them so as not to clutter this one when we discuss the 915 sequence you are planning.

    Yes, I went for the same conclusion in reading Kreutz's book. "Capua-Benevento" could be the new tag. But what I am now wondering is if MichaelM is going to implement that already mentioned union of countries, such as Castile-Aragon or Castile-Burgundy or Spain-Austria for vanilla ftg... In that case the provided command will help.

    Yes, as we also need to talk about the Aghlabid invasion of Calabria in 888-889 and the possibility to start the 888 scenario with BYZ and THU already warring each other without any coded event to fire. And more about the wars between Fatimids and Byzantium up to 967.

    In the end, I was guessing if we need to have BEN and NAP being at war with each other as it seems to me that these were more of retaliations as of organized military expeditions (the already quoted page 65 from "Before the Normans"). So starting with looted capital provinces could be more plausible...

    Before getting deep into Garigliano Arabs, I'd include these events:

    897- CAPUAN DIPLOMACY
    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 386007 
    	country = CPA
    
    	name = "New alliances by marriage"
    	desc = "."
    
        	date = { day = 0 month = january year = 897 }
        	offset = 360
        	deathdate = { day = 29 month = december year = 897 }
    
    	action = {
    		name = "The closer the better"
    		command = { type = DIP which = 1 value = 24 }
    		command = {
    			trigger = { 
    				exists = NAP
    				NOT = {
    					war = { country = NAP country = CPA }
    				} 
    			}  
    			type = trigger which = 291001 #NAP: New alliances by marriage
    		}
    	}
    	action = {
    		name = "The better the closer"
    		command = { type = ADM which = 1 value = 24 }
    		command = {
    			trigger = { 
    				exists = SLO
    				NOT = {
    					war = { country = SLO country = CPA }
    				} 
    			} 
    			type = trigger which = 350005 #SLO: New alliances by marriage
    		}
    }
    text for all event descs with "." in them:

    In his attempts to strenghten his position amongst the Lombard princes, count Atenolfo I proposed a marriage to duke Guaimario I of Salerno between his son and Guaimario's daughter. Since the marriage was opposed by Guaimario's wife because proud of her Spoletan kin, Atenolfo went for a dyplomatic marriage with Naples, currently ruled by the ambitious duke Attanasio II, as a way to contain his expansionism policy.

    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 291001 #triggered by CPA_386007 A (897)
    	country = NAP
    
    	name = "New alliances by marriage"
    	desc = "."
    
    	action = {
    		name = "Let's protect our back with Capua"
    		command = { type = dynastic which = CPA }
    		command = { type = ADM which = 1 value = 24 }
    		command = { type = relation which = SLO value = -25 }
    		command = { type = trigger which = 386008 } #CPA: Capua's most pursued aims
    	}
    	action = {
    		name = "Refuse any relation with Capua"
    		command = { type = stability value = -1 }
    		command = { type = relation which = CPA value = -25 }
    		command = { type = relation which = SLO value = -25 }
    		command = { type = sleepevent which = 291002 } #NAP: A league with Capua
    	}
    }
    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 386008 #triggered by NAP_291001 A (897)
    	country = CPA
    
    	name = "Capua's most pursued aims"
    	desc = "With this marriage Capua appeased Naples desires of conquest and found in them a valid ally, in particular in their quest for the expulsion of the Arabs from Garigliano River."
    
    	action = {
    		name = "Good"
    		command = { type = stability value = 1 }
    		command = { type = AMD which = 1 value = 24 }
    	}
    }
    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 350005 #triggered by CPA_386007 B (897)
    	country = SLO
    
    	name = "New alliances by marriage"
    	desc = "."
    
    	action = {
    		name = "Capua is a county of ours"
    		command = { type = ADM which = 1 value = 24 }
    		command = { type = relation which = CPA value = -25 }
    	}
    	action = {
    		name = "Capua is our closest relative"
    		command = { type = dynastic which = CPA }
    		command = { type = trigger which = 386009 } #CPA: The Divisio revival Pan-Lombard ambitions
    	}
    }
    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 386009 #triggered by SLO_350005 B (897)
    	country = CPA
    
    	name = "The Divisio revival"
    	desc = "With this marriage Capua rejoined the Salernitan Lombards but not any longer as a gastaldate, rather as an autonomous county since the stipulation of the Radalgisi et Siginulfi Divisio Ducatus Beneventani, earlier in 849."
    
    	action = {
    		name = "Good"
    		command = { type = stability value = 1 }
    		command = { type = DIP which = 1 value = 24 }
    	}
    }

    They are not that necessary, but they could be good triggers in the following events, such as NAP allliance with Capua in 903 and SLO (in case, a second) alliance with Capua in 920 to go to war against Byzantium.

    EDIT: another important remark is to move the expiration of the marriage between CPA and NAP from 900 to 897. The data are to be found in 888 scenario global data:
    Code:
    	alliance = {
    		id = { type = 6000 id = 508 }
    		type = dynasticalliance
    		expirydate = { year = 897 900 }
    		participant = { CPA NAP }
    	}

    EDIT: removed the "Pan-Lombard ambitions" as it will be used for the CPA-SLO marriage events in the 920s and following wars against Byzantium (pag. 98 of "Before the Normans").

    Here is a first chain of events dealing with Garigliano Arabs amended according to previous posts:

    903- CAPUA AND THE SARACENS AT GARIGLIANO RIVER

    In the struggle for power and hegemony in Southern Italy, it was common practice to send for Muslim raiders and invoke them to devastate enemy territories. Some of those raiders would even establish their encampments at the mouths of Garigliano River, on the shores of Thyrrenean Sea, for their incursions and sackings in coastal and inland neighbouring areas, in particular at the expenses of the county of Capua which would have to deal both with them and with the other Campanian counterparts: Gaeta, Naples and Amalfi.

    }
    As you can see, event CPA_386012 will lead the following sequence of events of 915.

    After this, in getting to the wars between CPA-BEN-SLO and BYZ we would also need to deal with Hugues of Provence and the Kingdom of Italy.

    EDIT: added war trigger in GTA_388000 action B.

    	}
    }
    Here is the event description for the three events above:

    Chasing the Saracens of Garigliano River proved to be harder due to both weakness and unreliability of Capua's allies. The Count of Capua was then forced to ask Byzantium for urgent military support. The Byzantines would use the Capuan call for help as an opportunity to press claims on the Lombard principalities and the semi-independent Byzantine city-states Naples, Amalfi and Gaeta, still considered part of Greater Byzantium.

    text for all event descs with "." in them starting from NAP_291005 below:


    The Saracens which established at the mouths of Garigliano Rivers were the scourge of the whole Southern Italy. Originally directed to hit the county of Capua on behalf of her neighbouring rivals, Saracen raids became a real threat for everyone, even for Rome herself. An intervention was planned by Landolfo of Capua-Benevento and the Byzantine Emperor to which the most Campanian forces joined in. Pope Ioannes X would buy Gaeta's neutrality with a grant of land and get the Spoletan support.



    EDIT: I have added action triggers to consider eventual wars between coalized countries.

    In case, wouldn't we need to increase the time span for the whole sequence with start date in 914 and death date in 920 possibly?

    EDIT2: changed event for Byzantium no longer triggering NAP, SLO and PAP events. These three events will have their own triggers and start/death dates.

    915 - HISTORICAL CAPUAN VICTORY OVER THE ARABS
    Code:

    }

    text for all event descs with "." in them:

    In the spring of 915, a combined force of Capuans, Beneventans, Salernitans and Byzantines took up a position south of the Arab encampment, Papal and Spoletan troops on the north, while the Byzantine fleet guarded the mouth of Garigliano River. After three month's siege the Arabic bands had been wiped out for the benefit of neighbouring territories which suffered the most of their raids. The access to Rome was now safe as much as the trade route between Campania and Northern Italy.

    Updating post #169 in DOK main thread.

    Here is the (hopely) debugged sequence (I have also changed some descriptions and commands):


    ITALY IN YEAR 900 - THE PROVENçAL INTERVENTION


    NEW events for TOS and IRA:
    Code:
    event = {
    	id = 371000
    	trigger = {
    		exists = PRO
    		exists = ITA
    		ITA = {

    				monarch = 064500 #ahistorical, in case he ahistorically kept the crown of Italy
    				monarch = 064505 #historical, when going back to the throne after the Spoletan Kings
    				monarch = 064563 #ahistorical, in case he reconquered Italy as Margrave of Friuli
    			}
    		}
    		NOT = {

    a tweak in this PRO event:

    Secusia, Liguria, Ventimiglia and Novara are IRA cores, IRA (Ivrea) should be PRO ally together with TOS:

    this event will be one of the starting points for the future sequence about "the Burgundian intervention in Italy"... ;-)

    Bordic, I have now implemented these three posts, and I will have a look at post #34 and following tomorrow. I am afraid everything else will have to wait for after 0.5. Let not that refrain you from posting the sequences you had in mind here or in the North African thread, because there will be a 0.51.

    Bordic, the events of posts #34 to #37 all look good, I will implement them. I have only one question. I seem to remember that we talked about several more provinces that should get a +1 BTV, now only Capua gets it, why not the others?
