It used to be that you actually got the "tried to murder me" opinion penalty after trying to claim your liege's throne. Paradox is a bit confused about plots.

I have no idea how Bavaria got down here. It was still in Germany, but it also found its way to Africa. Both it and Makuria are almost fully Catholic.

At least East Africa will now get to know the famous german "Hefeweißbier", also called "Weizen".

Reminds me of a time long ago when I played as a random Persian nation (small duchy at first). I eventually grew quite large, but the Mongol Empire was becoming a legit threat. But I noticed the heir to the Mongol empire occupied a small county right on my border. I declare war on the Mongols for the county, and because they recruit their army all the way east in their capitol, they aren't able to get to me in time before I win with war score.

I vassalize the county, convert the heir to Orthodoxy (me), kill his wife before they have any kids, and have him marry a granddaughter of mine who has a ton of positive inheritable traits, and on top of that, befriend him. I murder the Mongol emperor, my vassal is put on the throne, I lose the county I just conquered... but the damage is done. 40 years pass and I check out the Mongol Empire:

Their official religion is now Orthodox, and much of the east is now Christianized. Deus Vult muthaf**kas.

To choose is to give up, but King Bouchard of Frisa doesn't want to give up. The clever boy has found a way to always win in a crusade.

"Heads, I'm with you." [Attacks the Omeyyads Emperor in a crusade for Asturias]

"Tails, I'm not against them." [Defends himself against the Pope]

The strangest thing is that he loses in both cases. His war scores are identical rather than reversed. :oops:
