Looking at Godafres his stats I would say he will be able to survive and keep the kingdom of Jerusalem alive

I would like to comment on that but I think it would be better if I kept my mouth shut for now. ;)

Wow, I didn't know such an AAR was launched. Very nice graphics!
I read it carefully. :)

Wow, this is some great stuff. Sadly I have not been able to read any of your other AAR's (although I know your reputation as a writer), and so I look forward to following this one.

I've never seen graphics like these. Your own creation?

Do the Lusignan's need to be in league with anyone to cause trouble?

Great start to an AAR SM. And very nicely presented I must say. Perhaps unsurprisingly there are echoes here of Desert Tides. I cannot wait to find out more.

;) No they don't need to but being such a big family surprising things can happen :)

And I indeed made these pictures. If you look at my posts they are just one big picture which was composed of some smaller once and text blocks.
I very much like to make those title pictures:

And I can't resist to show you my favorite picture:

Thanks a lot and I didn't know there was a reputation :p And, this is my very first CK AAR (only got the game 2 months or so.)

Thanks a lot Stnylan. I never read Desert Tides, whom wrote it? (I would like a read, perhaps I can learn some stuff.)

Desert Tides - Or how I learnt to swim in quicksand is Storey's most recent magnum opus, currently I note second in the EU2 OscAAR voting. It's a Mongol Empire Scenario game of EU2, with a two part storyline. The first part is Indiana Jones-ish, set in the 1930s. The second part is a chronicle of the game he played as the Kingdom of Jerusalem. A wonderful work, I can highly commend it!

Will the Sang Real or the San Greal be part of this story I wonder ? ;)

And does Dan Brown know of that ? :)

No to both of them :) I actually didn't read Dan Brown...or.....did only read the first three pages.

Sounds like a realy nice AAR and actually a shame I haven't read it or at least heard of it (haven't payed very much attention to the EUII forum lately)
I will check it out for sure. :cool:
