The Safavid Empire - The Rising Sun
Carrying on my AAR as the Kara Koyunlu here as the Safavids. Its played on Normal/Normal using AGCEEP.
The Safavids have taken control of the former Black Sheep empire slaying its leader Jahan Shah and his son Pir Budaq is missing presumed dead after defeat in battle. I'll start after the battle with Pir and death of Haider with the Safavids in control but facing rebellions all over the place. The Khorasan have remained vassals but all other alliances have ended with the Kara Koyunlu. It'll probably read fine if you ignore the Kara Koyunlu bit but there might be a few references back to it. Any comments/suggestions/critisms are welcome. Nice to know what people think.
