The dreadful Jihad succeeded, and Pope now hides in tiny town of Breslau.
Our armies can't face the power of united Islam, but we can still pick their cities one at a time, so I lead a strike against Milan, under occupation by some rebels infidels.
I offered them a fair fight in the field, and they took it rather than hide behind the walls.
I lead left flank of heavy cavalry to cut their withdrawal, while Jinetes did the same the right flank.
Infidel archers were filled with fear by our cavalry and tried to flee, but cowards behind the gates would rather see their comrades die than open the gates to face us.
Soon despair spread to their infantry - flaming missiles thrown by our ballistas must have reminded the infidels of hell they're about to face - they might not have hit many but fear is the biggest killer.
The only thing left was to charge the cowards who didn't have it in them to join the fair battle.
The only thing left was reestablish Christian rule, and regroup the armies for further campaign.
I'm happy to hear that you've finally moved out of that God-forsaken Arhus, but your choice of destination being equally God-forsaken Stockholm surprises me. Are you trying to find that fabled edge of the world?
Our finances are strong, so if you need to hire any mercenaries to conquer the North, do not hesitate. I asked Johao to send some spies from Cairo - rumor has it they're the best in the world, but perhaps not every rumor is to be trusted.
We might have trouble with Venetians - they conquered Damascus and after their failed assault on Ajaccio their army landed near port of Genoa.
Johao writes to me that he's on the move with the largest force our kingdom ever gathered, with three units of catapults following him closely behind. His target are Gaza and Antioch, but if Venetians don't move away from our lands soon, Christian blood will flow in Jerusalem.
Perhaps we are about to have far too many enemies, and it would be wiser not to start too many new wars at the moment? Be cautious, since our resources might currently be plentiful, but they're still finite, the Pope has not been too friendly with us, and we're too far away from each other to be able to send each other significant reinforcements.
