    Yep, I have 10k of those as a merchant republic around the 900s (started in Charlemagne). Also, as a bonus, you can declare war 1 day before they reach one of their counties. No one in the map is up to it, really. That's what I was complaining in this post:

I'm roleplaying the republic, so I'm just taking cities and pushing some claims from around, keeping only the republic as my county-level title, but, really, I could've conquered the whole Europe if so I wished. There should be some kind of mechanic against single type armies. Really, if any army found 6k longbowmen unsupported by neither infantry or cavalry, the obvious move is all out charge against their position. Instead, in the game you are in for at least 12 days skirmishing.

    I am getting bored about my Cathar Welsh campaign and decide to start a Cuman campaign; turn out Tribal Invasion is ridiculous fun, especially you still have that after reform (which is quite easy if you play as Cuman).

    I was bored, so I made this:

    Alexiad start, playing historically until the death of Manuel Komnenos.
    Forced events: fall of the Fatimids/Rise of the Ayyubids (Saladin), Kingdom of Jerusalem survives until 1190, Hohenstaufen (Barbarossa then Frederick II controlling Sicily), Plantagenets (Anjou bastards).

    Ended up being a race against time to complete the Roman Empire reconquests before 1453, had to assassinate a dozen of HREmperors.

    Message of completion of the Roman Empire:


    Actual Map, since I had a decade until the endgame, I took Dacia too, though I didn't have the CB


    Ending with a genious Emperor:


    Though I had crap luck through the entire game with that. Finally the elder brother wanted to join the Holy Sepulchre and the younger succeeded.

    Roman provinces names, because it, why not:

    Now that is a world I would love to compare and contrast! Convert it to EUIV dude, spread your 'guiding light' across the seas to lands yonder, and unify the Earth under the banner of Rome before the extraterrestrials come about.

    Got a cool game going as Britanny, after starting as Haestein of Nantes. Year is around 950, I own Britanny, Cornwall and Normandy, and my culture has turned Norman.

    Not much really going on there, although in another game as the Abbasid Caliph in 1066, the Holy Roman Empire converted to Islam...
