I'm also interested by this. Are you propping the Horde up with military/monetary support?Originally posted by Sytass
Interesting map. Nice to see the Golden Horde going strong. Bad to see the Ottomans suffering again. Is it because of your wars with them?

At these words the Ifrit raged, and he tore the fisherman's sons apart, limb by limb, in front of their terrified father, and he ate them up, and he crippled the fisherman and set him afire with an imperishable flame. Staggering back to his hamlet, the fisherman sought solace from his wife, but only succeeded in burning her and their humle house. Deprived of house and income, he threw himself into the sea, a suicide in the end. His daughters, lacking kith and kin, were forced to sell themselves into prostitution to survive.
