I never was really a fan of Ælle's stories for some reason. But those last few chapters were superb
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
They are there, trust me. Maybe I am the only one who sees them.Really? It's very rare that I ever see you make a grammar/spelling mistake.
Thanks. The choice to do Ælle's story was mostly wanting to go back to the days of the Saxons but also give a glimpse of how a story changes. When Werna was reading to the kids, he'd read their version of things. You got some hints as to how the story changed right through the end.I never was really a fan of Ælle's stories for some reason.

It was Kiten, and no he does not. He views her as a friend, especially after sixteen years. She thinks she is attracted to him, but I doubt she would ever actually be comfortale with a physical relationship ever.So even though Sarah is scarred and horribly disfigured, Doyvat still wants to hit that? Where are the maids like the ones Aethelwulf (or whoever the lustful one was) used to spend time with?
I think he is also rather lonely and isolated, mostly his own doing so he won't be as hurt when he finally gets caught up into his father's very delayed plans.I see... I think I read your previous comment as "Doyvat doesn't love Sarah, and Sarah doesn't want to sleep with Doyvat. But the other way around is true." Sometimes there's nothing to read between the lines.
[non-sequitur] It seems Doyvat has discovered the age-old problem: Life sucks, but you don't want to die.
It is mostly a rivalry between their monarchies... and Rome closing Prussian trade down from time to time when it feels it isn't being paid attention to. The elder Doyvát even points out:Good old Romans. Always killing each other while their enemies sharpen their knives. Why does Prussia dislike the byzantines so much. Wouldn't it be wise to support a fellow christian nation that keeps a few Muslims at bay?
The Prussian King knew that Constantinople was the dam which kept the tides of Islam on the right side of the Bosporus. He assumed that one day all of Asia Minor would be in the hands of the infidels, but Constantinople had to remain strong. It meant the Romans had to stop fighting themselves.
I am very glad you liked it!This AAR is absolutely amazing, I started a campaign similar to this just to see how it would play out except I took Pomerania instead of Prussia. In the holy war to claim Prussia Morcar died with only one son. I want to try to keep my nobles Anglyccyn but I'm not sure it will be possible.
They are in fact great questions and central to Rome's position in Europe... but it means probably eight more years of writing... T__TI can't quite express how awesome 'screaming steppe hindus' sounds
I really do want to see how Timur's successes in Anatolia affect the Romans; from the Modern Day maps you posted, Rome encompasses more or less it's current European portion: will the Empire fragment and suffer internecine fighting and foreign invasion (more so than at the moment)? Will a stronger monarchy, perhaps backed by the Prussians, arise in the face of the Turkic onslaught? How will the Empire's relations with Bulgaria, Serbia and the other Balkan countries be affected by a shift in policy from Asia to Europe?
All of them are questions whose answers I eagerly await
