Well now that is a catapult into glory. A ruler worthy of "Magnificent" if ever.
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.
It sure was! The game often throws around the titles willy nilly, but this one was very deserved.Well now that is a catapult into glory. A ruler worthy of "Magnificent" if ever.
He is certainly the most successful monarch I am ever likely to have, they will be looking up to him for centuries to come - provided the Empire he built can hold itself together!Agellid's name will certainly live on in the annals of history -- though, ironically, whether that legacy will be as a second, Islamic Augustus or as merely another in a long list of conquering despots will be up to his heirs.
Thanks!This is excellent! Looking forward to the continued saga.
I was frustrated when he died in such a tiny war after everything that came before - but there is some poetry in him passing away just as the wars to consolidate the Sicilian grip on Italy were coming to an end, and before he could really slow down.A magnificent reign. What bravura to take on combined Christian might...and win! The emperor's rule was indeed cut short but given his feat of arms perhaps it was fitting indeed that he was to die on the battlefield
Pretty much - Latin Christianity is vastly weakened at this point from the OTL. There is still a common Christian enemy to keep us together, at least on occaision - but how long will that last?So now two Muslim empires naerly share the whole Western Mediterranean, how much time until they turn on each other ?
Hope you enjoy .This do look interesting!
In both Spain and Sicily the large majority of our Empires are Christian. At this stage in Italy there are still only a handful of Muslim province - almost entirely in the South, with even in this area where I've ruled for more than a century Christians being a big majority.Well done in your tactics to finally win so many battles and forge such an empire. One wonders how strong the Muslim faith is holding so much Christian land - could conversion be in sight? Likely not, but it is a thought. Looking at the map, you will continue to fight the Byzantines one assumes and as you mention, the Spanish Moors loom.
It goes forward very slowly in this game because of the rules I picked . Which I think makes a lot more sense! I didn't include the very frequent Christian rebellions in the update though - they tend to happen at least once every ten years and often more frequently.Let the mass conversions commence!
Was quite a reign!Holy Crap! Usurping the Kingdom of Italy (Essentially), and becoming Emperor is definitely hard to top for his descendants. I have a question:
Are you going to follow a in-game heresy? Curiousity.
That AAR was very old, but was one of my favourites. The one ruler, one update style I picked up there basically defined how I wrote AARs for the next half decade or something .Hey, relative newbie to the Paradox forums speaking. I've read some of your AARs before, and they were all really good, especially Through Rivers of Blood and Mountains of Gold. This one is no different--well written and excellent graphics. Long live the Siculo-Muslim Empire!
