Finally an heir. At least the bloodline won't completely die out.
Well, there are really no actual Bagratids left on the main line, although plenty of Davit's line. I did originally have aspirations to turn Mariyam into a Tamari "the Great" type of Queen, but her father and his kingdom's decline during his past years really complicated things.Truly winter has come for Armenia. The Kingdom has suffered terrible losses, the last of which was their king. At least you won't have any shortage of Bagratid relatives to mary, assuming the kingdom survives the next war. I personally would hold my nose and mary Davit's eldest son, if at all possible. A united Bagratid superstate like the one Tamar created would be able to hold off both the Turks and Greeks.
They get tougher in the next chapter. Mariyam has a few disasters coming her way.I was hoping the hard times would not come so fast.
Gagik really went from zero to a hundred and back to zero quick. In a test run I did before I started the AAR, Gagik actually managed to be crowned king of Georgia, Shirvan, and Alania, founding an Empire and even taking the fight to the Byzantines and Seljuks. What could've been...And what a dispiriting end to a remarkably life.
Oh yeah, I guess I'm playing this by the seat of my pants . I'm usually about two chapters ahead, which can vary from two years to nearly a decade like in the last chapter, that way I keep things fresh in my mind and don't have to try and figure out what the hundreds of screenshots mean, especially since I'm trying to get in the head of my character, and trying to remember how multiple members of my dynasty act would be confusing for me.Your little small sessions and writing them up, as opposed to having finished the whole thing or even just being decades ahead.
It sure was. I have to be honest, when the Host of Muhammad spawned out of nowhere I freaked out, I savescummed for a bit in order to trigger the duel event against him. I eventually got it, killing Muhammad and thus dissolving his 12 thousand strong horde but it didn't feel right so I went back to the save where my army got annihilated. I honestly thought about ending the run there, allowing y'all to see the rise and fall of Armenia, but I think I'll keep playing since I still hold land. Maybe I can still come back .A depressing end to Armenia
