    after fighting off all the rebels, slavs, magyars and vikings: the bohemian mark + northern italy will be my focus.

    the upcoming wars with the magyars will turn the danube bassin into a nightmare https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Hungaria...ions_of_Europe

    Here we are at turn 40 without FOW



    The Aghlabids stormed Sicily and conquered two mainland italian settlements from the Romans. This should keep the Lombards busy, as they start at war with each other. The Lombards secured there holdings and pushing to the italian center, where the papalstate and venice hold there initial settlements (as supposed to). Croatia is going against the remaining rebel settlement savaria and we will see them resume the attacks against my frakish empire - maybe at weniam too.
    Moravia conquered two important settlements and is building up troops. as my ally, they maybe went against the croatians at some point. Serbia as an ally of croatia conquered all up to the southern adriatic and are in a strong position now. they send an expedition army to the italian peninsula.
    The Romans are struggleling against the chandax invasions, but they hold asia minor and aren´t much involved into the bogomil uprising. In contrast bulgaria looses one settlement to them (rebels). they didn´t manage to expand, but they try to conslidate there holdings. Kiev is expanding nicely and the magyars try the conquere south, but failed.
    Abassids and Tulunids are at war. Tulunids loose ghaza, but gainst the sinai and siwas.

    Interesting to see the map like that. I don't recall the Scillian Emirs conquering Italian settlements in any of my campaigns. Admittedly I never let them, but they tend to probe with little one or two units

    yes, they´ve got some subtancial troops and are meant to drive the romans out of sicily and conquer main italian lands (like historical) at the beginning. Aghlabids will most likely run out of steam, if they don´t manage to recruit new units there and for this they need money and change of culture. it look like they are able to do this, as they also conquered alot settlements in north africa. this will keep the lombards away from my lands in northern italy.

    i´ve also like my war with croatia. if you don´t check them early, they can steamrole my provinces and bordermarks. in episode 20 they even deploy diversion tactics in the alpin passes near Karnburg to lure my defending army (Bernhard) away from Krainburg and then fully invade Krainburg areas. also moravia is a proven ally, as in turn 22 they assist me in fighting the rebel stack in weniam. Have to say, XCAI and RallyBadAI really improves vanilla me2tw. the AI will always come up with new ideas and tactics, even if i replay the same battle (like in the upcoming episode 18).

    there will be one new episode each every day.

    I am a few episodes behind, last I saw Prince Karloman was heading deeper into northern Italia probably unaware that several large armies of the Serenissima and Lombards were close by. Exciting stuff.
