Very detailed mapping, I love it.
What are the biggest RNG blocks that can end your run?
Obviously Austria dying too early and the crown going over to the Palatinate or Bavaria would mean starting a new run and Lit being independent isn't important at all. From experience, what's the worst RNG stuff (alliances, etc.) that would end it?
As for Otto favors, would it pay off to tentacle to Dulkadir first, cutting off the Ottos in the east and getting favors after being called in by them?
I used it as Hisn Kayfa to farm 40 favors by eating attrition on sieges, increasing my war participation to sth around 70%.
Shouldn't delay Persia, or would it? Slightly RNG dependent obviously, but getting 40 favors with Ottos removes waiting for 10 to hit and reduces their number of provinces later.
Additionally it gives you more christian (Orthodox) provinces to add.
Anyone in discord mentioned or even tried it yet?
