Probably an event war.
It is, and even he won the war. His old lady is not able to urusp the title. Gender blocks.
What map mod is this? Big fan of it.
Not sure what part of map mod you say, but if you're speaking of map graphic mod, it's Flat and Opaque Map Mod.
As the map itself, it's my own Performance map. Both of them are available on Steam Workshop

Anyhow, fun/odd sequence of events here. I get the "jihad unlocked" big message, it says Mecca has fallen! I think hang on, who could have done that?

1603217516018.png


It's...the Nubian tributary kingdom under the Caliph. So he wants to call a jihad to reclaim Mecca, but can't, because it was taken by his tributary.

Oh well, let's just go beat up some Normans to take out our frustration instead I guess!

It wouldn't surprise me if the Caliph himself even helped the Nubians in their war for Mecca.

I don't know if that happened (probably), but the Caliph certainly helped them when the other Caliph declared his own jihad on them.

Or...tried to help.

Seljuks gonna Seljuk. Ah well, so much for that brief moment when Miaphysite MA hit 89.

...but they still have Mecca.

Footnote to this saga: I was poking around the Ethiopian Miaphysite sphere while all this went down and--I've never seen such high intrigue in a regular AI character!

Not "strange" per se, just amusing. Imagine the look on the Muslims' faces when this Christian uber-warrior shows up to their party and trounces them all. To add insult to injury, this is a party celebrating martial virtue, and the winner is clearly very decadent (drunkard + serial adulterer). And he won despite being nearly bedridden with joint pain.

How did this happen? Die he lose his main title while the coronation was in process or something? :)
Yes. I gave him this crown.
But while I was on his coronation he got claimant faction coup and reverted to county.

Playing a game of Quantum leap (When a character die you get switched to a new, randomly chosen one). I am currently on my third character, first one was emperor of Tibet, second one was the King of Bavaria and last one is a super weak count in Sunni India. Something must have gone horribly wrong in Tibet after I left because somehow an Abbasid inherited it at the age of 3. Now 3 years later he also inherited the caliphate.

10 pound sledgehammers.

Wonder how many people get that reference?

I believe it's an American speaking to a Scotsman in Germany, unless I misremember the person being replied to.
