Short one.

We start the year of 866 off by declaring war on the woman we took the Kingdom of Bavaria from, if we win this war we'll get 1 duchy and 2 counties.

http://i.imgur.com/mvhIqZ8.jpg

Our Bavarian troops are easily able to defend against what few troops she can raise (our opponent is currently trying to help the Magyars in some wars).

Barx inherits a random castle down near Greece.

http://i.imgur.com/aNjFZzK.jpg

Euphie Ouroboros is now of legal age. She is the daughter of Lanicakes. She is a Brilliant Strategist, Wroth, Temperate, Content, Gregarious, Arbitrary, and a Cavalry Commander. Not bad but not super for army leading, ignoring the incorrect chromosome.

http://i.imgur.com/KqG8wom.jpg

Some attractive Frank for her husband.

The Twins Shrael and Narumata have reached adulthood. They are the children of Kyunghee. Both are Skilled Tacticians and Twins. Shrael is Shy, Wroth, Just, Temperate, Diligent, and Charitable. Narumata is Slothful, Gregarious, Zealous, Chaste, and Craven.

Shrael is the elder of the 2.

http://i.imgur.com/z8QgOP3.jpg

Narumata marries a random guy that we bring to our court so he can be a commander.

http://i.imgur.com/BCZsbEl.jpg

While we find a Genius Asian-looking girl for Shrael. Unfortunately she's 26, so about half of her more fertile years are gone.

http://i.imgur.com/9KyL9nF.jpg

We have solid proof of our wife cheating. We don't care too much since we're 70.

http://i.imgur.com/hsRdZ8a.jpg

Hootz, you aren't being a smart man right now are you?

http://i.imgur.com/aoBeqie.jpg

Try not to overthink it...

http://i.imgur.com/mGwWeRY.jpg

A daughter was born to Innokentios of Dunasead and Emotron Ouroboros, named Caulle.

http://i.imgur.com/2UgVAui.jpg

A Very easy war. Unfortunately we have 1 more duchy than our vassals would be happy with us having (You can only have 2 before people start getting mad at you having too much power for yourself). We also have 1 more county than we can properly manage. So we get to give a lucky family member a piece of land. The lucky man? Mistacoupon. We give him the duchy and 1 of the counties that we took from the poor woman that we've stripped of her power.

http://i.imgur.com/b1gpYwc.jpg

Look at that new Doux :D

http://i.imgur.com/RYzp4tQ.jpg

Barx, why? Why do you want Mistacoupon to be the king of Bavaria?

http://i.imgur.com/QzjHLmh.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/USUzjaB.jpg

This is where I decide to fix the buggy revolt, since the revolt has lasted 30 years and can't end despite the Basileus having 100% warscore. I have to do this by taking control of the leader of the revolt and surrendering to the 2 religious revolts that rose up against him. This makes all the lands that the rebels hold independent. But...

http://i.imgur.com/96XR7DE.jpg

The independence revolt is finally over.

http://i.imgur.com/qcsNSUZ.jpg

We immediately found the independence faction. This is because I want to control when we try getting independence, instead of letting the AI decide to declare prematurely and ruin things.

http://i.imgur.com/5fb2U5B.jpg

Barx is trying to expand all on his own, while he plots to kick Hootz out of Bavaria.

More short updates. These posts are actually a cunning plan to get my post count up!

http://i.imgur.com/RwL79o9.jpg

A daughter was born to Despot Hootz the Unready and Queen SEcgfrida the Unfaithful, named Serrana.

http://i.imgur.com/V9hG4d0.jpg

Our liege manages to compel me to not be a part of any factions. Because I have the "kind" trait I have to go with it.

http://i.imgur.com/cYT4tbM.jpg

The Basileus decided to transfer vassalage of the heel of Italy to us. So now someone that used to be his vassal is now our vassal. This could be happening because he likes us or it could be happening because we've become his most powerful vassal and he's trying to appease us. Either way I'm still kinda scared of the nomads so I'm not planning on actually GOING for independence yet.

http://i.imgur.com/gqisSFj.jpg

A son was born to Galteri Karling and Drydon Ouroboros, named Leorawrr. He has inherited a lisp. Are lisps really genetic? That sounds more like a learned thing but what do I know.

http://i.imgur.com/OVwRJF4.jpg

Shiraena Ouroboros is now of legal age. She is the daughter of Wausabi. She is a Skilled Tactician, Humble, Kind, Patient, Temperate, and Honest. I like those traits. Good person.

http://i.imgur.com/ZXn8AYb.jpg

Only person that she's not related to that I can find to marry her to is this random dude in our court. So we go for it. The AI hates Matrilineal marriage.

http://i.imgur.com/qOkIzXv.jpg

I'm not sure, do we need more events to let us know that Hammerstoney died? I think we do.

In reality each event is actually a separate part of his death. One for new heir, one for inheritance, and one for "he ded".

RIP Hammerstoney.

http://i.imgur.com/gtHRtcp.jpg

Hootz randomly decides that he's going to do what he can to make sure his sons get along.

http://i.imgur.com/rwGQJ2y.jpg

And Kanayama like him. What's with this sudden decision to focus on making family get along? I actually know what it is, it's because the AI changed the character's focus, one of 10 things you can have your character focus on. These include the 5 attributes, Family, Seduction (Aka the Mamamata focus), Hunting, and 2 others that I can't be bothered to remember. The AI changed the focus during the 1 week I had cheated to control the rebellion to fix the silliness with the peasant revolt. I can't change it back, but this family focus, if it makes my family like each other and me... I'm fine with that. I also didn't know that those events existed so I might use family in the future.

http://i.imgur.com/AnPMvg2.jpg

Barx and Kardea are now friends. This is a very good thing because, since they both hold land, they'll work together in wars and such more.

http://i.imgur.com/br4wFar.jpg

Drydon has passed away from pneumonia. She was 30. RIP Drydon.

http://i.imgur.com/Us9XELV.jpg

A daughter was born to Raoul and Osira Ouroboros, named Bayonetta.

http://i.imgur.com/MRVXGoD.jpg

At the ripe old age of 72, Hootz truly mourns the death of a family member for the first time, seeking to replace him by spending some time with his wife. How sweet, the stages of grief.

http://i.imgur.com/D6Ejj1r.jpg

Wait what?

http://i.imgur.com/s6IwBvj.jpg

A daughter was born to Kyriakos of Neapol and Jigglybits Ouroboros, named Dendimon.

http://i.imgur.com/0HX2AK5.jpg

A small vassal revolt in the Magyars. And it's my neighbor. AND I have a reason to declare. Let's go for it. Take some empty land!

http://i.imgur.com/W3CjogD.jpg

Hootz, buddy. It's cool. More babies.

http://i.imgur.com/fq5qyE1.jpg

Now making Mistacoupon and Barx into friends. Family bonding!

http://i.imgur.com/0qkI6QO.jpg

At 73, Hootz' body and mind seem to be giving out on him. He will likely pass away soon.

http://i.imgur.com/CJwWvF8.jpg

Phoenix Ouroboros is now of legal age. He is the son of Osira. He is a Skilled Tactician, Proud, Ambitious, Just, Kind, and Honest. His ambition makes him dangerous since he's more likely to try gaming power at the cost of his family members. Because of that he might not get much, if any, land.

http://i.imgur.com/GOs519p.jpg

But that doesn't stop us from arranging a marriage with a Quick girl. I love me the genetic traits.

http://i.imgur.com/PN7hCej.jpg

I forgot to properly screenshot this war. Which is a shame, since we manage to win despite being very outclassed.

We raise our troops and march to the enemy capital. We assault the camp even though it costs us a lot of lives. Right after we take the camp we disband our troops since the enemy was only a couple days from catching up to us. Disbanding in enemy land causes half our troops to just vanish and the other half to go home. He starts sieging his capital back, and is doing so very quickly. He could have assaulted it but he didn't. We then raise our troops back up and rush them as fast as we can to his only other county. Because it's an empty county we take control of it as soon as we get 100 men there. Only a couple days before he gets his capital back, we get the men there.

Because we occupy every single one of his counties, we have 100% warscore. That lets us immediately enforce our demands and take the... empty land. This doesn't give us any more power now, but it weakens the nomads and gives us room to build more.

http://i.imgur.com/U4vYhLY.jpg

A daughter was born to Despot Hootz the Unready and Queen Ecgfrida the Unfaithful, named Liadri. Liadri is most likely an affair baby but we are accepting.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIA!

http://i.imgur.com/u872guD.jpg

Despot Hootz rests in the arms of the Lord at age 74. He died bedridden and infirm. Long live Despot Barx!

You can ignore the "new heir" thing, because we have elective that will be changing regularly as votes change.

Barx is a good choice for next Despot. He has the genius trait which automatically is a big boost. He has good attributes even outside of that.

http://i.imgur.com/8CmFuVt.jpg

Just go show how far we've come. Everything that is a shade of green is a county that is within our realm. We have a couple baronies that aren't within the counties, but can't see them from here because baronies aren't actually on the map, they are in the counties.

http://i.imgur.com/q27aaOU.jpg

Updated family tree!

Interesting note: I have gone through the same number of male and female names from my list. We've gone through 26 out of 88 male names and 26 out of 86 female names.

http://i.imgur.com/cUwDw67.jpg

So remember that Barx had a war going on? Yeah because the person he's at war with is now his vassal, De Jure casus belli no longer applies. This war just vanishes and ends instantly.

http://i.imgur.com/aJ6X7pN.jpg

We have too many holdings at the moment, so we give a barony to Levins. Have fun down there Levins.

http://i.imgur.com/Cj8YDXk.jpg

We also give Desmond to Refrigerator, since we want to keep our own holdings nice and consolidated.

http://i.imgur.com/Jg36P3J.jpg

We cast our vote for Basilike to be our heir, and find her a nice Attractive husband. With her Genius and her husband's Attractive traits there's a chance for some very useful babies.

http://i.imgur.com/iwg2qoJ.jpg

Remember the war Hootz fought shortly before dying? That rebellion is still happening. We declare for the last county that the rebels hold.

http://i.imgur.com/Qy3TBgO.jpg

We actually get caught by a big pile of horsemen, losing most of our men. Fortunately, the county hadn't reinforced it's garrison from when Hootz sieged it, and we're able to assault the camp and take it.

http://i.imgur.com/G44NJI2.jpg

And, once again, we have full occupation to get 100% auto war score. We immediately enforce demands before the nomads catch and murder the rest of our soldiers. It is worth noting that with the number of vassals we have we need to make sure we don't get all of our troops killed, lest some faction or another try to enforce their demands.

http://i.imgur.com/kGcXq8V.jpg

Would you look at that, the Magyars fighting against 4 revolts at once... Looks like another chance to take nomad land.

http://i.imgur.com/9CcmgpG.jpg

We declare war on the weakest of the revolts, but we have to use the Holy War Casus Belli. There is one very big downside to the Holy War CB. 1. The defender gets an opinion bonus with everyone he shares religion with in his realm (giving him a large boost to troops, since vassals partially give troops based on how much they like you.) and 2. Other characters of the defender's religion can join the war, meaning that you can end up fighting a large force.

http://i.imgur.com/HtG6JVi.jpg

A daughter was born to Ansfrid Varbertingi and Edanea Ouroboros, named Nivelz. She's an attractive little girl.

http://i.imgur.com/4z26dLu.jpg

Small flavor event, we decide to call both people morons and that makes us prestigious.

http://i.imgur.com/2Rq4lK3.jpg

A useful event, Castles usually cost more than 400g. We decide to let him build us a castle. Hopefully this won't backfire, since there can be events part of this line that end up making the castle MORE expensive.

http://i.imgur.com/Bpx0l92.jpg

So, that whole thing about "other people of the religion can join holy wars"... Yeah...

http://i.imgur.com/O2ozOI6.jpg

They've come to fight! We might be able to take them. They are mostly light infantry (which suck) against our heavier ones. We also have a holy warrior for combat bonuses against other religions. But we are still pretty heavily outnumbered...

We get beaten pretty badly despite our best efforts.

http://i.imgur.com/JXzoNRT.jpg

MURDER!? RIP Arkhan.

http://i.imgur.com/JY8wnkh.jpg

Hooray, our castle finishes. As the in-game tooltip says "Excellent!"

http://i.imgur.com/C6Hfgxn.jpg

Kyunghee dies a natural death. She lived for a whole 54 years. RIP Kyunghee.

http://i.imgur.com/NeQFQDG.jpg

The Magyars manage to crush all of their revolts, including the one that we were fighting (and losing) against. Because the war technically ended inconclusively, we don't really lose anything except for the troops that died.

http://i.imgur.com/UtOH3NR.jpg

Prince Deathmittens of Taurica is now of legal age. He is the son of Hootz. He is a Brilliant Strategist, Craven, Temperate, Content, Zealous, Diligent, and a Flanker. He could be a good commander as long as we don't make him lead the center. We find a 2 year old Genius girl to betroth him to.

http://i.imgur.com/EOpnqSq.jpg

:(

http://i.imgur.com/u9c18Gx.jpg

Because of our depression, we end up not being able to manage all our land. We give Deathmittens the brand new castle.

http://i.imgur.com/wguHOP1.jpg

Wait. What? Why the Varangian Guard? I'm legitimately confused as to why he gave us the Varangian Guard. The Varangian Guard is represented in game as a mercenary company that is a vassal of the Byzantine Empire. They are the only mercenary company that is, by default, a vassal. You can have a mercenary company as a vassal and the main benefit of that is that you're able to hire them for VERY cheap. So the Basileus decided to give us the ability to raise about 3k angry Norse Heavy Infantry for only a little money. I'm not gonna complain but it's still weird.

http://i.imgur.com/UiV3eNY.jpg

And now he's giving us more vassals. I don't know why he's giving me this power. That being said, the Republic of Amalfi is pretty weak at the moment since they are landlocked. Republics rely on being coastal to create things like trading posts. I was planning on eventually making a vassal republic to funnel money to me. I'm not sure if I'm going to do that still or make Amalfi powerful.

http://i.imgur.com/uVY367n.jpg

Already? I know he had 2 negative health traits (Maimed and Depressed) but dying naturally at 28 is weird. Well now we are Queen Basillike I guess?

http://i.imgur.com/dc04c6x.jpg

Our current holdings and vassals. We are relatively powerful now (about 20% of the entire empire if you include the Varangian guard. We might be able to fight some smaller nomad hordes on in a fair fight now, if we consolidate our troops. Which brings me to a small issue. We are very spread out. We have troops in Ireland, near Iberia, in Bavaria, in the Balkans, in Italy, and finally our own holdings up around Crimea. This means that it's going to take a while to bring our troops together for combat.

Post of things where I won't actually be playing but instead showing random stuff.

First: My mod order.

http://i.imgur.com/tCfjjjn.jpg

My mod order starting out the game were just a couple to make things easier to view.

http://i.imgur.com/O7KPPjW.jpg

Later on I (obviously) added the Anime Portraits mod. This mod was well received since the portraits of our ethnicity are kinda... derpy.

You can also see that I added 2 small gameplay-altering mods. The AI custom kingdoms and empires is what it sounds like. The game has a feature that lets you create a kingdom or empire if you have enough land. By default the AI will never choose to do this. The mod just makes it so that if the AI meets all the requirements they will actually use this gameplay feature that was mainly added for players.

There is also the Suez Canal mod. It serves to connect the 2 oceans in the game together. One main feature of this is that it makes India matter more to Europe since merchant republics (Like Venice or our very own ocean-less Amalfi) build trading posts along the oceans to get money. The AI is also kinda dumb in regards to managing their transports with 2 oceans, sometimes not realizing that they can't move transports from one to the other.

This hasn't directly affected us yet, but it could. I know it doesn't sound the most historical, but there is evidence of canals connecting the Mediterranean to the Red Sea. Either way. I like it. Deal with it.

http://i.imgur.com/SqixJPM.jpg

Now more gameplay altering mods are coming in. A new map mod (it looks nice you'll see it soon). We also get something where members of our courts might join mercenary companies. They'll do this of their accord. This is mainly to make it more interesting basically.

We also have "Female Ruler Improvements" so that female rulers can appoint female councillors and add the ability for a female ruler to possibly change succession laws to absolute cognatic (a.k.a. gender neutral succession).

So that's how our mods are looking right now. I'll continue to add small mods as good ones catch my eye.

Moving on!

We now go to look at the family members that hold land, going vaguely from weakest to strongest. Each of these family members are currently our vassals, but that could easily change as we go forward.

http://i.imgur.com/Ou5NnCB.jpg

First we have Baron Levins of Servia, an Envious, Cruel, and Zealous 12 year old boy. His barony is down in the Balkans, in the county of Thessalonika. There is a strange thing about this though. The county of Thessalonika is held by Doux Sebastianos 'the Just' of Thessalonika. So the Barony of Servia, by law, should be under his control or the barony should at least be a vassal under him.

Because of this, the Doux kinda hates us. We don't care though.

http://i.imgur.com/ZyrkTid.jpg

Next we have Baron Deathmittens of Caffa, a good man (you can go back to a past post to read his traits). He is a holder of the one barony that we built in Theodosia. As you can see there, it's a pretty bad castle, with no upgrades at all to it yet. Baron Deathmittens does have an advantage over Baron Levins, a clean de jure setup. Caffa is within the county of Theodosia, which is held by us, which is in the duchy we hold, which is within the kingdom we hold. There is no reason for anyone to have a reason (currently) to try taking this land. It's a safe place to have, if weak.

http://i.imgur.com/U8Xx0kX.jpg

Third, we have Count Kardea of Mallorca, which consists of all those islands in the screenshot except for the one with 453 Byzantine troops chilling out.

Kardea has been able to hold this county, and his main holding there is actually pretty well upgraded. This is probably the strongest single holding under our control. The duchy of Mallorca is still held by that one dynasty that we fought for the county in the first place. We don't care that he has a rightful claim to fight us for that county. He is weak and we aren't. We are the strongest vassal in the Byzantine Empire.

http://i.imgur.com/vyKMShQ.jpg

Fourth, Count Refrigeretor of Desmond. I won't go into his traits since he's about to turn 16. His personal holding is pretty bad, but he's actually in a good position to expand if he took the chance to. All of the counts in Ireland are about as week as him and they aren't unified at all. In order for Refrigeretor to lose any land to anyone outside of the Byzantine Empire, the attacker needs to fight off the entire Byzantine Empire. This is something these Irish counts will not even try. Lastly, Refrigeretor has a pretty strong alliance system in the form of all these family members that hold land. Long story short: If Refrigeretor decides to be aggressive and bold he could become very powerful, possibly moreso than ourselves even.

http://i.imgur.com/iCV4ChS.jpg

Lastly we have Doux Mistacoupon of Carinthia. He has the 2nd best personal holding in the family. He's also the only family member vassal that is duke-level. You can see his duchy in the light blue, with his own county of Krain, on the map. He has legitimate claims to get another 3 counties by default. He's not strong enough to try pushing for any of those claims on his own. We might be helping him try to get them since a stronger vassal is a stronger us (as long as the vassal likes us and doesn't try to rebel).

And that's our family member vassals. Please let me know which map you prefer. I like the one I used in this post because it looks nice, but I could see a problem with it in terms of visibility.

So, fun note. This is the first time I couldn't upload the original images to imgur, instead having to convert them to .gif format.

These images are very poorly stitched together, I couldn't easily stitch them together because of how the camera is oriented, so it's just a bit of a mess.

The following 3 images are pictures showing all the independent realms in the game, then the religious distribution, then the cultural distribution of the realm. The religions and cultures on the map are the religions and cultures of the common folk in the counties, not of the rulers. If a county is darker with the stripes going through it, it means that the religion/culture of the liege of the realm does not match the religion/culture of the county.

http://i.imgur.com/K0cvGYz.gif

http://i.imgur.com/jH4O9zq.gif

http://i.imgur.com/dQ2s0lC.gif

Some items of note. The Karling dynasty only holds West Francia and Aquitaine, and is already only half as powerful as it was at the start of the game.

Sardinia is the ONLY independent realm that is in the Orthodox religion family (They are iconoclast).

The Zunists are still around. From what I've read, historially this was a short-lived religion that died along with it's founding family. They haven't really grown or shrank but they exist. They are easily the weakest pagan religion in the game and the second weakest religion that even has an independent realm at the start of the game (Behind the Nestorian Christians).

EDIT: After feedback about the map, I dropped the map mod I had in these screenshots and my mod load is now including Novus Graphicus

http://i.imgur.com/W7xqZXB.jpg

Bomb, you'll be born eventually.

I decided that each character's "focus" will be randomly chosen so that we have more variety in focuses. Each session I'll also be checking if I can change focus, and will reroll if I can. Basillike's focus this session is Business.

http://i.imgur.com/1PUignh.jpg

Upon becoming Queen, Basillike realizes that she can't handle all this land, so we give one of her 2 counties in Bavaria to Hootz. Have fun Hootz. We also cast our votes for Princess Kanayama to become queen of both Bavaria and Taurica. She is ambitious so she'll be able to change the succession laws to allow women to be considered equals for inheritance.

http://i.imgur.com/K1Ryzxb.jpg

One of our vassals, the Doux of Austria, hates us a lot and is trying to make demands of us. Our response? Give Hootz a claim to the duchy! Screw this guy, he's a jerk.

http://i.imgur.com/LJIsXPX.jpg

We have our first family member that wants to become a mercenary. We let him go. Have fun Shrael.

http://i.imgur.com/6H9b6zH.jpg

And it doesn't take him long to start showing what he can do. Good job Shrael.

http://i.imgur.com/lZvHOyG.jpg

The mayor of Aqmescit (a city in our capital county) has been dishonorable to us... I guess? We decide to throw him in prison.

http://i.imgur.com/bZUuqJZ.jpg

He decides to rebel. His city falls within 2 weeks and we lose 0 men.

http://i.imgur.com/2NBjmqS.jpg

During those 2 weeks, Nubilus passes away. RIP Nubilus. Phoenix also asks to become a mercenary, we let him go as well.

http://i.imgur.com/yuKbD9u.jpg

Kyung Ouroboros is now of legal age. She is the daughter of Steagosaurus. She is a SKilled Tactician, Kind, Gregarious, Brave, Honest, Charitable, and Gluttonous. We find her a nice man in Desmond to marry. His name is Refridgeretor. May they have many babies.

http://i.imgur.com/NVJ5Y97.jpg

I forgot to screenshot our pregnancy, but we make a friend out of it at least!

http://i.imgur.com/ljc3XEq.jpg

We can take the city from the rebellious mayor. We do so and give it to some family member with a randomly generated name.

Osira was born, I didn't pick the name. Good job Phoenix.

I... What? We already knew we were pregnant. Did I just have a baby and not realize? Or did I not screenshot it and forget? Or was it a miscarriage?

Kardea gets sick and becomes Incapable. He's basically in a coma. It'll take a lot of luck fo-

Ok then, RIP Kardea.

Our business focus is stressful, sleep is for the poor!

Gain gold, prestige, AND a trait that gets us more gold? Will do!

A daughter was born to Hippolytos and Osira Ouroboros, named Vanillabean. Vanillabean is rather vanilla trait-wise.

For lying about how valuable our coins are, we get better at managing our holdings and making money!

A daughter was born to Queen Basillike of Taurica and Despot Pakhtiyar of Taurica, named Narrella.

Of note is the upper-right corner of the screen. "Basileus Eustratios the Wise has declared Byzantine Holy War for Cherson on Khagan Yerneslu the Cruel." That's the Khan of Khazaria having to face the might of the Byzantine Empire. This seems like a chance for us to snag some land for ourselves, so we go for it. This could end poorly, even with the Varangian Guard by our side we probably can't fight the entire Khazarian horde straight up. If the Basileus doesn't basically kill the horde for us this could be a rough time.

We raise our troops plue the Varangian Guard. Even if we can't take the whole thing on, we'll be able to put up a fight against some smaller groups with all the heavy infantry.

We still have that one former mayor in our cells... We torture him then immediately ransom him away.

When Liadri turns 6 we send her to go live with Refridgeretor and Kyung for some time. I'm sure she'll come back fine!

So the Basileus converts to Catholicism, abandoning local patriarchs and instead favoring the power of the Pope. Then he decides to make his own Pope that serves as... a vassal of him... Just like the Ecumenical Patriarch. Wat.

In the 'background' you can see us holding some land. The Basileus' army is just murdering these nomads with his ~30,000 troops. We 'help' by doing mop-up when the nomads flee so that we can get the bonus warscore.

Princess Kanayama of Taurica is now of legal age. She is the daughter of Hootz. She is a Grey Eminence, a Legitimized Bastard, Ambitious, Tempered, Patient, Brave, Diligent, and Charitable. Those stats and traits are about as good as you can ask for an heir to have. The only flaw is the lack of a genetic trait, but regardless. She will be a wonderful Queen if elected. We even find her a pretty decent man to marry. He's a bit old but not many people want to marry her at the moment. If he passes away we can just wait until Kanayama becomes Queen then marry her to a better choice.

Mercenary Shrael died. RIP Shrael. Apparently he was murdered. Also, the Byzantines won their war, we have to finish the war ourselves. Fortunately, the Basileus was kind enough to wipe up most of the nomad army. We still have a few fights, but we're able to handle them thanks to the Varangian Guard.

Who? I don't even remember you being born. Oh well, RIP Borporios.

Lose some tax in our capital for 10 years for a cash payour? That's likely a net profit for me so we go for it.

http://i.imgur.com/E4KvgtP.jpg

So we get even better at trading and making money by seeking short term profits and lying about our products. Seems legit!

Our last major victory before we win the war. Notice that we actually lose more men than we kill. Despite being outnumbered 2:1 and us having a lot of heavy infantry (as opposed to the bad light infantry) the nomad cavalry is still very tough. We chase down this group, killing all of them over another 4-5 one-sided battles. Then we occupy the land we're fighting for and...

http://i.imgur.com/HJpdSzV.jpg

100% warscore! Between occupying the land we declared over, taking a prisoner, and winning those battles (along with a few losses admittedly) we manage to beat the nomads.

Yeah, dat sweet empty land.

The independent realms. Yes the Abbasaids were overthrown a while ago. The Zunists are dying out as the last Zunist ruler rebels against his liege for converting to Sunni.

Our holdings and vassals in green.

Another family tree. This thing is getting huge. You can also see that we're getting to the point where I'll have to be taking multiple vertical screenshots and stitching them together. Refridgeretor and Kyung had 2 babies. You can see them twice on the family tree, once under Refridgeretor and once under Kyung.

You'll also notice less naming of babies after Ouro members. This is just because I can only name my own children or the children of those in my court. Any of the Ouroborians that have their own land or are in another person's court for any reason get to control baby names for themselves. This happens regardless of if the court is the court of my vassal or not.

I will not get a story, but I am enjoying the hell out of this as well. Fridge and Kyung babies!
