Oh boy, this isn't going too well. Will the whole world bow to either Mecca or Chalcedon? Let's hope Abyssinia makes a comeback
Yes, I'm hopeful they will. Tesfaye seems to be a bit more resourceful than his grandfather in adapting to the harsh realities of this new world.
There goes a great king. With luck we shall not see his like again.
LOL. Yes, for one the strain he put on the infidels' ability to continually expand was a great hardship for them.
well That went better than can be expected didn't it. It is now time to run for some hills in say Sweden.
Yes, that would probably be the sane thing to do. Unfortunately this dynasty lacks that particular trait.
Hilarious. Consider me subscribed.
Daring try. The Caliph was certainly magnanimous to let you go for a bit of money instead of crushing you like the roadkill in the new coat of arms...
With his European looks maybe Tesfaye will convert to some other Christian denomination, a more popular one perhaps?
Who would actually want to BE a pretender in your kingd...county ?
Yes, that is the silver lining to owning land nobody wants.
I agree. That was quite daring. I dont think the Caliph could do anything else but take some money from him. Its the only option for winning a defensive war.
Does this war refresh the truce? I wonder if it would be possible to constantly declare war on the Caliph and lose in order to maintain the truce and prevent an invasion. Even if that does work, Im sure there are a dozen vassals or other independent Muslims that wouldn't mind your county.
Some great updates. I hope you have something up your sleeve. I would hate for this AAR to come to an end!
Thanks! And yes, as Athalcor points out, truce is one sided. But as you correctly point out, there are plenty of others who wouldn't be so bound even if it was two-sided.
IIRC, the truce is only one-sided in CK2.
Great AAR, I'm subscribed. But I feel I'm a liitle bit too late (but wishing you well!)
Thanks! Here's hoping Tesfaye can keep the dance going.
