The prophecy of the harder styles
- May 8, 2012
I just watch Kingdom of Heaven so I had to check I added a new character to the list
A Personal favourite of mine, simply because of the rarity of a strong childhood friendship lasting for an entire lifetime of an Emperor
In-game Dux of Opsikion 1117-1122; Dux of Paristrion 1122-1140; Dux of Mikra Skythia 1123-1140; Dux of Makedonia 1122-1140; Dux of Nikopoleos 1140-1147
At the siege of Nikaea in 1097, a young Turk was captured by the Imperial Armies, who was later presented as a gift to the Emperor Alexios Komnenos. This young boy grew up with the Imperial household, and formed a lifelong friendship with the heir to the throne, Ioannes, that was to shape the course of events for decades to come. The young boy, who took the name Ioannes, after becoming a christian, was a very gifted Commander, second to the Emperor alone in skill, during his reign, and the Emperor relied on him heavily. As Supreme Commander of the army, Axouchos became the Kingmaker of the Empire, ensuring first Ioannes' own accession to the throne, against the wishes of his mother and his sister in 1117 and later ensuring the accession of Ioannes' youngest son Manuel to the throne, in accordance with his friend's wishes. Can you emulate Axouchos' role as a loyal Kingmaker? Or will you take the future of the Empire into your own hands?
Herra of Dal, 1066-1088
Not particularly famous or notable but if you're looking for a challenge he might be your guy. A dirt poor, independent county caught in between Sweden and Norway. In game Faste and his descendants will be independent until 1179 presumably because nobody bigger gives a damn. Can you turn Dal into the mouse that roared?
I'm not gonna stop It'll probably take time because the map is huge and I don't always have the time read wikipedia articles then look if the specific character is in HIP, but with enough time and participation of the community, we'll have a nice long list of charactersGood to see more characters were added.
Obviously not. As long as you drop one from time to time just to spice things upAs i said earlier, i could basically fill the list myself or with the help of my SWMH compatriots Ese Khan and Aasmul, but perhaps we should allow you guys some room for suggestions too
Don't be precious now, there's space for every suggestion. If you know any interesting characters, do share themAs i said earlier, i could basically fill the list myself or with the help of my SWMH compatriots Ese Khan and Aasmul, but perhaps we should allow you guys some room for suggestions too
