The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Well, the OP can always say that, after a rigorous scrutiny of their ancestry, most of the population of that place was actually not Xenoi, but only very misguided humans ... or inversely, conversion = repopulation with real humans ( disclaimer : any similarity of the above with the fate of Poland between 1939 and 1945 is pure coincidence :/ )Aztec and Mongol assimilation is as haphazard as ever, the Croats are surprisingly intact, and I fear for Europe's xenoi population should they ever fall under the Empire's sway. It could get ugly and become a running sore in the EU4 era - can't assimilate without converting (or change demographics through massacring rebellions/inducing emigration) until Victoria 2 (or maybe 3 by the time you get there) and how can you convert them to orthodoxy if orthodoxy claims they don't have souls?
Well, when you put it like that, you do make Franciscus of Assisi sound like a rather filthy personage.Sadly this moment of joy was soon to be eclipsed by treason of no one else but brother of Augustus himself. Porhpyrogennetos Maximos Angelos, son of Leon VIII, was found to be in secret studying heretic books, including “Summa Theologiae” written by Thomas Aquinas and blasphemous teachings of Francis of Assisi, animal-lover and friend of lepers, insane fool worshipping “Lady Poverty”. Maximos was found guilty of this heinous crime forbidden by the canons of the Holy Synod and imprisoned on 3rd January 1416 – truly, a great is the mercy of Augustus, for heretics deserve much harsher punishment.
I suspect the Imperator's recent so called, "friend" of consorting with the Xenoi to cast a spell on the Basileus.That's a lie! An Augustus could never be a victim of the dark arts! The divine hand of God is watching over the Angeloi, and those who might doubt that must be punished!
Whoa, that's an end! Let's hope that the voice of Jesus will be the one that the troubled Basileus will have to hear. Who knows, maybe Iesus Kristos will give him some... "military advices" ("Hey, you, Alexios: Hit that pagan with this stick." "Of course, my lord"! ---> Whole Europe reconquered).
Waiting for the next chapter! Great as ever!
