I know most of you can't read it, so I have to explain it. It's a suggestion to send a letter to myself to increase the dispute between me and my rival (my wife).... :cool:

Instead of increasing the dispute, my Chahanshah Dariush who had mixed feelings about his wife was offered to have a long debate with himself on her case. A win-win in the end, since Dariush not only got improved opinion of his spouse, but also gained some prestige points as a reward for his excellent diplomatic skills.

Because the Empire was conquered by Poland... and the counts and dukes broke free of poland in endless wars and looks now:
(yes I conquered my part from Poland too, because my wife was a princess of east francia and had a claim for that land :) )

To citate slightly a famous book title:
"Im Ostfrankenreich nichts Neues"

Note, aside from the Britannien part, it always looks like that in my games if Haesteinn decides to invade Ostfrankien

As a German kid, he got that Balearic vibe, but thought Malta was closer and could do the job as well.

Maybe Malta already had a medieval version of the "toys r us kids castle" ;)

While playing at the red sea region, I saw this:
20210725133619_1.jpg


As he is heading in the direction of the indian ocean, if Japan was included, I could understand his desire to go even further and grab some "filthy weeb stuff".
But so I guess he is only on his search for "Dumbo".

It's typical AI things going on a raid in the indian ocean while being at home in the baltics.

So I can only guees he would be in search for "medieval Manga Hentai stuff" (hence why I mentioned "weeb").
But as Japan isn't included, he searches for:
00 dumbo.jpg

"Dumbo, the flying elephant"

Such old memories from my childhood

Fun fact: There is a river connection between the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea. You have to carry your boats across land for a few kilometers, but that is something the viking longboat could do.

It is how the Varangian Guard in constantinople came to be.
It is why the Viking expansion looks like it does.

From the batlic, India is propably easier to reach then south spain.

I know - when I was playing as Norse, my "mediterranean round of raids" would always include Cordoba, Rome, Jerusalem and Byzantion. Seen it enough that my soldiers used the Dnjepr-Dina Rivers.

But it always phases me, that the AI searches for "far away" riches as it could easiely just copy my mediterranean round.

Damn shame though the canal from the Nile to the red sea which the ancient egyptians and it seems even the romans used ceased to exist.

Maybe the AI secretely learns that "raiding AlipheeseXV" will ultimately lead to "a bunch of naked Valkyries/Germanics/Romans and what ever naked cultures I ever had may come for revenge"!
