    As said before, bridges are your ally. Archers and javelins will tear the mostly low-armored units to shreds, just be careful about their Arab Infantry with your cavalry. Call a crusade on Granada...

    Re: What is a good medium sized faction?

    Denmark is stronger; better starting position, better late game units, quicker access to Hanseatic League.

    However Norway can be a lot more fun with roleplay and the bigger challenge.
