    02 - Collect 10 Boar Testicles

    Much significance was attached to the Antioch victory, for Reyrey has unwittingly destroyed the notorious assassins of Islam. Many Christians lords breathed a sigh of relief, exclaiming that 'Reyrey is good for something after all.'
    Show Spoiler

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, the celebrations continued in the streets of Antioch where a festival was held to commemorate the expulsion of the filthy Jews.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Once the party ended, it's back to work for the young ambitious Duke.

    [​IMG]

    However, Reyrey perhaps enjoying too much of the recent victory, decided to instead pull his foot off the pedal and bask in the prestige for a while...

    [​IMG]

    Instead of spending his annual taxes on military matters, he decided he would rather take care of those woodland creatures that are plaguing their countryside. Radiant villagers flock to his castle, offering quests for ten boar intestines and the likes. Some even wanted bird brains.

    Reyrey didn't care, he just wanted some EXP.

    [​IMG]

    It's time to shed some blood.

    [​IMG]

    The hunt poses many peril for young Reyrey.

    [​IMG]

    But he survived his first hunt with nary a scratch.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Bitch, cook these dead animals for me.
    [​IMG] Ray.. there's no need to kill any more of this. You're just killing them for sports...
    [​IMG] Why you- wait. You're totally right, dear Ellis.
    [​IMG] Constance. But I am?
    [​IMG] Yes, you are. I will kill something else next year.
    [​IMG] Sigh.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Bitch.

    Years pass...

    [​IMG]

    And another hunt is held.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Except he isn't so lucky this time...

    [​IMG]

    But nevertheless, Reyrey kept going and going. Stabbing every forest animals, imagining a Muslim head attached to each trophy he cut down.

    [​IMG]

    And it all worked out well in the end...

    [​IMG]

    And so on...

    [​IMG]

    Finally, he is prestigious enough to hold the first banquet in his honor.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    However, this joyous occasion is marred by news from Jerusalem...

    [​IMG]

    Time is running short.

    [​IMG]

    But all that is a distant concern for Reyrey as he feasted with his vassals.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And for once, they all liked his company.

    [​IMG]

    03 - End of Line

    Great news from the west as Christians finally succeeded in liberating Andalusia from the taint of Muslims.

    [​IMG]

    Show Spoiler
    However this does not change the situation in Jerusalem one bit.

    [​IMG]

    At least the Castille's finally getting back their home land.
    Reyrey figured that the Pope's in a good mood, and wouldn't mind if he fucks another hole, legally.

    [​IMG]

    Hopefully, this will go smoothly...

    [​IMG]

    Oh well. He tried.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    With his scheme realized, Reyrey moved quickly to replace Ellis or whoever the fuck her name is.

    [​IMG]

    A marriage to the Princess of France is proposed. It will take a few more years for her breast to become full and legitimate collision between two sexual organs happen without invoking the wrath of the pedo bears, but he can wait.

    [​IMG]

    Or can he? He spoke too soon, the bears, the bears were really what he thought they were.

    [​IMG]



    He didn't make it through the night of 1 November 1159. A great icon of Christian passes away. A petition to elevate him to Sainthood failed to reach to Pope, no doubt it was stopped by the Evil Islamic Pirates of the Red Seas jelly of his awesome cheevos and masculine appearances. Reyrey would make an appearance in Baldur's Gate 2 in the bridge district of Athkatla. You can kill him for XP there. No romances though, you sick fucks.

    [​IMG]

    And so our story ends here, as ReyRey couldn't get any action with Ellis, Levinia or....Constance before his hyperweapon is deactivated permanently.

    Thank you for reading this ironman LP guys. I really mean it.















    Just kidding.

    [​IMG]

    Some Guy is actually 'Little Reyrey', Constance's relatives were relatively adamant about letting Reyrey educate the child and has been teaching him nothing for the past 8 years. This needs to be fixed asap.

    Little Guy, realizing his father's failed dreams in Holy Lands tells his caretaker to fuck off and sets off towards the court of France whereby a pussy was promised to his father, Reyrey of Antioch.

    [​IMG]

    He will now claim that pussy by birthright when they're both old enough to actually understand what it means.
    Satisfied after playing house and demanding the bitch to make an imaginary sandwich made up of cloth and bits of leaves, he gave her a good slap for forgetting the imaginary honey mustard before setting sail back to Antioch, his true birthplace in an imaginary spaceship constructed by the Federation piloted by Klingons.

    But there, a storm is brewing...

    [​IMG]

    The Muslims of Aleppo smelled blood, the absence of Reyrey gave them a spark of hope to extinguish the icon of Christianity in Antioch completely. If Kerak falls, all is lost.

    [​IMG]

    As his father's levy gathered before him, Little Guy exclaimed 'Muds gonna Mud' before instructing his Steward to open the treasury's vault.

    There, he spent what he could and signed a few contract mercs from the Anti Islam Mercenaries (AIM), famous for the liberation of Metavira a few centuries later in a fictional timeline, as well as Arulco where they dealt with a troublesome monarchy, but that is a LP for another time for now it's time to defend Antioch.

    [​IMG]

    Little Guy is delighted with the cheap prices of the mercs. These numbers will turn the tide for sure.
    And with leaders like these...

    [​IMG]

    Counter rape is imminent.

    [​IMG]

    'LOL PWNED' came the rallying cry as the battle of Hamath came to a close. Cries for Allah goes unheeded, as the false god's followers shat themselves underneath the trampling boots of AIM's best. At a Kill to Death ratio of 6:1, suffice to say the de_hamath server is about to ask for a map change/reset, butthurt not withstanding. Random team plz.

    Little Guy bask in the glory, protecting his father's dreams and Antioch.

    [​IMG]

    Hair bright as the golden sun, tongue sweet enough to unsalt skins of virgins.

    [​IMG]

    No one could've predicted such a turn-around as his promised pussy of France arrives in style, almost as simultaneously as the victory over the Mudslims of Aleppo is concluded...the Little Guy has come of Age. And is ready to rule on his own.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    A wedding is held. The court is elated. Antioch's golden age is about to start anew.
    But we're getting ahead of ourselves...

    [​IMG]

    For The Little Big Guy has much to do in real time. With pause.

    004 - Bringer of Change

    Sensing the joyous mood of his vassals, Big Guy decides to draw up new taxes.

    [​IMG]

    The barons grumbled but yielded. They have no choice, the resources of Antioch is meager and every little bit helps.
    Show Spoiler

    The unhappiness did not last long however, as the royal couple successfully produced an offspring.

    [​IMG]

    Far from being over-confident, Guy is playing it safe - his father was too overconfident and it led to his downfall just as he was about to grasp at greatness. He will not make the same mistake.

    [​IMG]

    Elsewhere, his father in law requests for aid in faraway England.

    [​IMG]

    No fucks were given that day as he collected Wirt's bone and other objects to summon a portal to Bovine Country.

    [​IMG]

    Alas, his level is too low to even slay one of them.
    Yet he stayed on, never giving up... until....

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The way of the Sword is mastered.
    A feast is called later that year, commemorating his first year in as the ruler of Antioch.

    [​IMG]

    The very next year, his wife brings into this world his first son.

    [​IMG]

    He will be the spear that pierces the very heavans.
    Antioch basks in his presence as optimism grew for the future, despite the Muslim horde at their very doorstep.
    Yet all is not well in the young liege's mind...

    [​IMG]

    Was it a divine sign? A courtier brings in news of a young noble who passed away.
    Guy sighed, no one said this would be easy...

    [​IMG]

    Then, a decision was made. He will seek answers from God before embarking on his campaign to rescue the Holy Lands from the Sword of Islam.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The road is never easy.

    [​IMG]

    In travels, he met with many hardships.

    [​IMG]

    And learned the meaning of charity. Also, beastiality mods.

    [​IMG]

    As he arrives upon his goal, a revelation struck him.

    [​IMG]

    His determination is set. There can be no retreat from this path.

    [​IMG]

    Antioch will go to war. Feverish speeches were given to his court as instructions to fortify their levy numbers were arranged. Gold were spent on more training grounds, proper funds reserves were kept for strictly war funds. Antioch stirs from its dream and deals with reality once more.

    [​IMG]

    So is Guy's mind. Driven near death by the journey and the lack of proper in-bed action - he sprang into action the moment the apothecaries certified him restored to fullness of health. His Spear of Longinus fully drawn, he plunged it deep into the Eye of the Warp. The very loins that gave birth to Prince Hyperweapon. Frenzied screams echoes in the royal bedchambers as the hungry liege devoured the forest of pussy in wild abandon. The guards grit their teeth as tension mounts in their armored loins. Months later... it happened.

    [​IMG]

    The spear struck true. More celebrations in the kingdom as another royal pregnancy is declared.
    Yet the war preparations came upon a discouraging revelation.

    [​IMG]

    Did his father make a mistake?
    No matter, it is a minor set back.
    Elsewhere news of a new formation of an Order of Knights fills Guy with hope.

    [​IMG]

    The Knights would not accept payment in gold, only the pious can summon their aid.
    The second delivery of the Royal Child is successful. It is another man.
    He is called...

    [​IMG]

    More planning ahead, as the Duke prepares himself to administer more land...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The neighboring duchy of Edessa, under a Muslim ruler remains a constant threat to Antioch.

    [​IMG]

    They've attacked when the old Duke died, this time we'll take the fight to them.

    [​IMG]

    We will pull no punches. Military action will come once the non-battle options are fully exhausted.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    At last, the day came.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The new liege of Edessa is an incompetent heir.

    [​IMG]

    We will bury them.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Antioch's war has begun.

    Chapter V - And they shall know no fear

    The time is now.

    [​IMG]
    Show Spoiler

    Thousands of knights poured forth, bolstering the levies of Antioch.

    [​IMG]

    Antioch's actions have casted it into a new light in the Christian world, that even Rome took notice.

    [​IMG]

    The Holy See act accordingly, giving blessings and more importantly, material wealth for the war.
    Funds that were spent very wisely by Warmaster Guy of Antioch.

    [​IMG]

    With leaders like these...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Thousands of heretics perish into the warp, never to be seen again.
    Never again they shall feel the tender touch of the ones they loved and sin against the righteous owner of the Holy Lands.

    As the knights gave chase to remnants of the Edessan army, the bulk of the infantry lay siege to Hama.

    [​IMG]

    Victory is certain. Glory eternal.
    I also lost track of how many babies Marie popped out.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Everything is going according to plan.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    With the capture of Aleppo, Antioch has doubled in size and is no longer a minor player in the region.
    As Warmaster Guy distributed the lands amongst his faithful vassals, his scouts brought troubling news from his southern borders. Thousands of Muslims army are laying siege to the remnants of Jerusalem.

    [​IMG]

    Guy knew that this moment is crucial. He cannot hesitate.
    After much deliberation, two mercenary bands were raised into service as a dispatch is sent to Jerusalem's court.

    [​IMG]

    'Help is coming, Brothers of Faith.'

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    As the Fatimid soldiers lazily apply the sieges, their commander was rudely shocked by the sudden arrival of the famed Antioch Army.

    [​IMG]

    Their 3,000 strong forces were caught off guard by a flood of 15,000 men - far away from their main body of 8,000.
    When the two Fatimid forces regrouped, the Antioch army is not too far away.
    A battle between 28,000 men turned the whole sand blood red.

    [​IMG]

    Killing more than a third of the men involved.
    The scales are tipped to the Christians.

    [​IMG]

    The Fatimids, unable to raise another army simply melted back in shame. Jerusalem cheered their rescue as Guy of Antioch orders his levy to return home, for their campaign is not yet over.

    The revolting heretic counties of Al-Jazira and Al-Sukhnah provides an opportunity too good to be missed.

    [​IMG]

    The Ninjas of Sand are brought back into action, their familiarity with warfare in the region unequaled.

    [​IMG]

    Desert burial awaits the heretics.
    More good news from home...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    26 February 1169 - Jerusalem survived the Fatimid onslaught having been rescued by the most unexpected of allies.

    [​IMG]

    But more challenges awaits the survivors of the Crusades and nothing is ever certain the world of Crusader Kings.

    [​IMG]

    But let there be celebrations for now.

    More wars to reclaim the lost lands from the heretics are declared.

    [​IMG]

    Antioch is making gains towards the earning the rightful Kingship title to their most beloved liege.

    [​IMG]

    Only one more county stands in his way.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    But upon pondering his options, he realized there is another option to be crowned a King.
    A title he so desperately covets, as he sought to reclaim the Holy Lands in the name of the Cross.
    For that he will turn to his most desperate ally.

    [​IMG]

    Historians questioned King Baudouin III's wisdom in accepting Antioch's request to join the Kingdom of Jerusalem, however many felt he had not much choice. His demesne is a mere two counties. Jerusalem is a kingdom in name only.

    [​IMG]

    Once inside, Duke Guy of Antioch proceeds to march his troops towards his liege's capital county and presented his proposal.

    [​IMG]

    With a heavy heart, Baudouin approved the new law knowing what would come next...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    His attempts to placate the duke with empty titles fell upon deaf ears.

    [​IMG]

    Pressed to a corner, the proud King refused to surrender meekly.

    [​IMG]

    The rest is history.

    His first order as king was totally unexpected.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Under his command are two order of knights, The Knights Hospitaller and Knights Templar.

    [​IMG]

    They shall be called again and again for the coming campaigns to reclaim the lost Christian states.
    For that is their duty till their last breath.

    [​IMG]

    Thousands march to Al Jazira, poised to strike East into the rogue counties of Mosul and Kurdistan.

    [​IMG]

    They shall know no fear.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Like a crack of thunder, the cavalry descended upon the hapless heretics and misguided fools.
    Before they could call upon aid from other heretical kingdoms in the region, their banner has fallen.
    Jerusalem grew stronger still.

    [​IMG]

    In a flash, the templars rode away from the scene of battle as levies melted back to their hometowns for a quick family reunion.
    New vassals are formed under King Guy. And soon, no kingdom in Europe can ignore his growing influence.

    [​IMG]

    The Retinue of Fury arrives at Antioch and boards the battle barges. Their destination? Southwards to the shores of Egypt.

    [​IMG]

    Elsewhere, another holy order is formed. King Guy is pleased.

    [​IMG]

    No evil shall escape his sight.

    [​IMG]

    Ten thousand strong army disembarked from the battle barges and marches towards the lone county of Petra.

    [​IMG]

    Resistance is futile. Many wondered if the King's ambitions will ever be sated.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately for them, it grew ever hotter still.
    As his faithfuls sail back to Antioch, he plans his next military campaign in the company of his marshall.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Also, he ensured his two eldest sons do not go out of line. Every year, their development is closely monitored.

    [​IMG]

    The templar chapter sets off from Antioch once more to bring light back to the darkened territories under the heretics.
    This time they came for Amida.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Theirs cannot hope to match our blades.

    [​IMG]

    Nor our armies.

    [​IMG]

    Elsewhere, the heretic kingdoms warred each other: the Sultanate of Rum and Seljuks plot against the Fatimids. Their unholy alliance proving to be too much for the decadent Fatimids too handle, having lost their Sultan to old age.

    [​IMG]

    The Venerable King Guy knew the time has arrived. He ordered a complete recall of all Knight Orders to Antioch where they march as one towards Fatimid borders.

    [​IMG]

    The fate of the Outremer is about to be changed forever...



    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    As the army of the One True Cross crosses the border of Fatimids, terrified locales were shocked when the Knights marched headfirst into the 5,000 strong Rum army laying siege at Qsar Bardawil!

    A masterstroke of unparalleled brilliance. Had Jerusalem declared war before crossing the border, the Rums would've grouped tightly with the Seljuk's 8,000 strong army.

    [​IMG]

    The shell-shocked Rums fled before the awesome might of the Chapter.

    [​IMG]

    Their attempts to regroup with the Seljuks failed as the Sultan has declared victory over Fatimids and wishes only to stabilize the newly conquered territories.

    We will help by making that objective impossible to achieve. Thousands of liege and vassal levies were called into service. Their late arrival provides the bulk of a second army advancing towards Rum territory to the north. While the Templars wreak havoc at the newly conquered territories of the Seljuks, who hesitantly agreed to be called into this war. It will take time before they can muster enough force to match our twin piercing assaults.

    We call this maneuver, Steel Reign.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The Entire Four Knights Chapter is summoned to Antioch in the holiest of all war.

    [​IMG]

    Despair is written in their faces, outnumbered, outmaneuvered, outmatched.
    The newly conquered territories had barely a few dozen men guarding the gates.
    The 8,000 assailants merely held the trigger of their holy bolters for a mere quarter of micro seconds before the gate to the cities lowered itself, allowing plunder of much needed war funds.

    [​IMG]

    Fool.

    [​IMG]

    Thousands of Seljuks reinforcements continued to be intercepted and wiped by the roaming Templars.
    There is no escape. The sands will be the home to their blood and bones.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    At last, as the 15,000 strong Rum invasion forces lay siege to the coastal cities, the 11,000 strong Templar Chapters Combined prepare for one final showdown in Az Zaroa.

    [​IMG]

    With zeal and fury we claim our righteous victory.

    1176 - One year. That was all it took for the Seljuk-Rum Alliance to admit defeat to the Kingdom of Jerusalem.

    [​IMG]

    Guy's Magnificent offensive has successfully crippled three kingdoms at once.
    The Fatimids lost a massive chunk of land to the Seljuks.
    The Rums lost a chunk of land to Jerusalem.
    While the Seljuks lost no land, their army is crippled beyond recognition, it will take years before the newly taken lands pay for itself. And the Templars have not yet declared war upon them...

    [​IMG]

    It was the Citizen Kane Moment in the History of the Outremer before Citizen Kane is actually even made.

    The Muslims of the Outremer are at their wit's end.
    Show Spoiler

    Unseen schemes have unraveled their plans until it was too late to undo the damage.
    They've never expected such a foe to emerge from the Cross.
    One who could summon the entire might of the Knight Chapters under his command and possess an appetite for conquest that is near insatiable, yet so pure and devoid of malice?
    To him, they were simply a disease upon the land. And he is the cure.

    [​IMG]

    The Caliphate of Egypt rally around their young Caliph after surviving an onslaught from the Seljuk-Rum alliance.
    Licking their wounds, they wonder when is their turn.

    A messenger from Rome spells certain doom...

    [​IMG]

    Rome, acknowledging Guy's magnificent efforts rewards him appropriately. The four Knights Chapter remain under his employ, sworn to cleanse any traces of heretics from the Holy Lands. The rest of Europe spies in envy, ashamed that they could not match the deeds of a single kingdom.

    Elsewhere, the Seljuk's strongest alliance is about to create their greatest weakness.

    [​IMG]

    Their foolhardy honoring of the Seljuk-Rum pact costed them dearly. Half of their levy are wiped out in the hopeless defense of Rum.
    Their coffers are nearly empty. Newly conquered lands are laid bare for plunder, not even a thousand stood guard around the borders.

    All this is planned by the Warmaster of Jerusalem, Sworn Enemy of Islam, Shield of the Cross and Lightbringer of Antioch: Guy de Chatillon, son of Reynaud.

    [​IMG]

    Damascus, the prize of their previous conquest will fall with nary a thousand death.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Insults were hurled in the nobles palace of the Seljuks but they knew they've been totally outplayed.
    Defeat total. They could not even wage a single battle before a victor is declared.

    Having stolen Damascus with nary a meaningful loss, the forces of Jerusalem marches westwards to Galilee.

    [​IMG]

    Each step taking them closer to Jerusalem.

    [​IMG]

    The initial Knight Chapters rushes forward to cleanse the Fatimid's filth. Back in Antioch, legions of Guardsmen were raised to make the bulk of the siege forces.

    [​IMG]

    12,000 Knights crossed blades with the heretics 8,000.

    [​IMG]

    Glory everlasting. They scatter to the sands as the first initial Fatimid defenders perished with nary a survivor.

    [​IMG]

    There will be more.

    [​IMG]

    They honor us with their mightiest numbers, let us meet them head on!
    Summoning battle barges from Antioch, more troops are levied from the vassals and they set sail towards the battle as relief.

    [​IMG]

    It is merely a precaution.

    [​IMG]

    The demons are upon us. Prepare for battle.

    X - Insatiable

    The Golden Age of Jerusalem is fast approaching. Countless victories scored against the heretics in the Holy Land is proof of their deeds. Their King's cunning and foresight have carried them thus far. The three Muslim powers in the region's power is waning, and they hide behind decades of truce with the Christian Kingdom.

    But King Guy would not rest easy.
    Show Spoiler

    The first of his Primarch, Hyperweapon is nearly ready. He will study under the tutelage of Duke Baudouin, the Marshall of Jerusalem.

    [​IMG]

    As his army grew, King Guy realize he will never have enough funds to cover all four chapters' annual expenses. The entire tax revenue of Jerusalem simply were not enough to fund a firepower of that magnitude. But he knew where to look.

    [​IMG]

    Rome shall provide. Every year, as each victory is scored in the name of the Cross, the Chapter shall surrender control a single fruit of conquest to the Papacy.

    In exchange, Rome would issue a war fund to Jerusalem to continue with the war effort.

    [​IMG]

    With this arrangement in mind, any concerns of war funds is solved for the foreseeable future and the Chapters can continue to bring Light into this region.

    [​IMG]

    As all three major Islam powers are hiding behind truce, and now Jerusalem will have to fight for scraps. No heretical land is too small to take.

    Elsewhere in Antioch, the Second Primarch, Gaben the Valved is beginning to show violent tendencies.

    [​IMG]

    The King, pleased with such direct display of raw emotions encouraged him on. With Jesus' blessing, he may yet surpass his elder brother in bringing Light to this Darkened region.

    [​IMG]

    Yet another victory for Rome.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Such was the peace that the King can even afford a feast with his vassals that year.

    [​IMG]

    And his first Primarch is ready.

    [​IMG]

    Having exhausted all conquest options in the southern regions, the Chapter pushes northwards to the lone county of Hashimids.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The heretics could not stand before our might and was cast aside without much ceremony.
    As the Chapter planted their banner on the stronghold, they gave pause and survey the land northwards.
    There is only one territory worthy of their time and effort. One which is full of savages in need of Everlasting Light from Christ the Protector.

    [​IMG]

    Cumania. Their King declared.
    That region will serve as recruiting worlds for Jerusalem, bringing in more men into service of the Christ, the One True Emperor of Man.

    [​IMG]

    These savages will never know what hit them.

    The War for Cumania begins.

    [​IMG]

    The Cumanian savages were unprepared. Their vast territories are meaningless without the technology and power to match the Chapters on the field. Their War Boss, Kobyak the Great muster whatever forces he can as the thrusts his own command into the Angels of Death.

    They did not reject him.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Defeat is inevitable.

    [​IMG]

    In Antioch, the Third Primarch, Guitarhero displays a different set of talents than his previous brothers.

    [​IMG]

    Realizing that perhaps his Third's fate lies not on the field of battle, King Guy directed the boy's effort elsewhere set him onto the Path of Virtue.

    [​IMG]

    It worked.

    [​IMG]

    Cumania falls.

    As news of Christian victory spreads, the Sultanate of Rum will have to deal with yet another terrible blow...

    [​IMG]

    Their Sultan has passed, and with his death is the annulment of the truce brokered after their defeat against the forces of Jerusalem.

    [​IMG]

    There is no escape.

    XII - The Retinue of Fury

    In raw strength, the Guardsman retinue can never hope to match the sheer firepower and faith of the Templar Chapters. Yet their existence is also a necessity.

    [​IMG]
    Show Spoiler

    Like the stout pole of wood that made the sharp tip of the spear reach the enemy, the retinues will fall behind the Templars, laying siege where the enemies are too afraid to do battle, and rain down death when called upon with their ranged doctrines.

    [​IMG]

    3,500 of them exists, the acquisition of Cumanian territories allowed another 1,500. They shall not falter.
    Once the recruiting worlds have been dried of all possible manpower, all that is left is to safeguard it from further incursion.
    No doubt the Cumans want revenge for the defeat and death of their Khan.

    Sensing this possibility and the difficulty in dividing attention between the North-South conflicts, the King entrusts this responsibility to the Papacy.

    [​IMG]

    In exchange for three years of Rome's tribute.

    [​IMG]

    With the Northern campaign ending in a golden fashion, the army of the Faithful turn their attention to the newly crowned Sultan of Rum.

    [​IMG]

    None shall escape our wrath.
    As the forces of virtue gather, Antioch celebrates the arrival of the sixth Primach.

    [​IMG]

    After giving birth to five princes, the Holy Queen Marie finally fulfilled her wish for a daughter of her own.
    King Guy's reaction is more restrained, not wishing to show favoritism amongst his children, but there is a certain gentleness when he mentions her name in passing.

    [​IMG]

    Rum collapses as the Second Primarch is ready to serve his father.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    His wroth is terrible to beheld, his trickster nature granting sales of violence at randoms. Irresistibly so.
    Thousands shall rally under his name. Gaben the Valved.
    Elsewhere, his brother, Prince Hyperweapon reports a battle between the Byzantines and the Seljuks,

    [​IMG]

    16,000 Seljuks clashed with 9,000 Byzantines.

    [​IMG]

    Yet the Byzantines held their ground.

    [​IMG]

    The fates of the Muslims are truly sealed.
