WELCOME BACK TO TRUCK DYNASTY

Nothing much has changed in the land of FORD F150.
SOCOTRAAAAAAAA
YOUR TIME IS APPROACHING
But before that, let's take stock of where we are in the game
The TRUCK Dynasty has expanded at an exponential pace; the TRUCKERSONS are like a plague that envelops everything it touches.
Although it pains me to think about it, I know TRUCK won't live forever and it's time to start thinking about succession. Gavelkind is the worst possible scenario, so I figure I can change the law if I top off a few vassals who are a little upset with me.
Yes that's sorted by opinion. The only think keeping the realm from anarchy is the fear instilled by TRUCK (and the fact that he owns nearly every county).
Back to the action
We have (7) ships! This coupled with our allies in the north opens the possibility of an invasion of Pakistan in order to secure the Holy Sites, meaning we can achieve our goal much faster than anticipated.
The war is declared and the allies are in. Time to let them do all the work while I kick back and..

*NOT PICTURED - getting declared on by two neighbors simultaneously
TRUCK NOT OLD; TRUCK BEAUTIFUL
Note for anyone reading; don't insult the person whose jail you're in.
The Sun judged her and let her live; TRUCK figured it just had an off day and finished the job.
WE LOSE
Our first major defeat is a stinging one; but it's necessary to ensure our continued survival. Our current pace is unsustainable, we need to buckle down and secure the realm.
AI IS DUMB
We manage to unsiege our provinces before enemy reinforcements arrive; squeaking out a white peace before more damage is done. TRUCK is upset at all these cowardly acts; but he is a patient marauder.
TWO WARS LOST ONE WAR WON
Thanks allies! We now have a foothold in Southern Asia.
TRUCK MISS TITLES
Finally, we dole out our titles. Already, some of our new vassals follow TRUCK's example and move to conquer our enemies.
A few wars later...
We've advanced far enough to assault the first Holy Site. It's already held by a Zunist, but our calls for vassalization go unanswered.
So we take the only logical step and invade.
I think we may have abused the Call to Arms a few too many times...
OH NO
We have won the war, but we have lost everything.

It's the end of an era.

TRUCK TRUCKERSON started his life as the count of one county and ended it a mighty duke. Along the way, he's killed thousands, sired hundreds, and exhausted his knowledge of truck related vocabulary.

We have been cast into uncertain times; the only certainty is that ZERO PERCENT FINANCING has enormous, misshapen shoes to fill.
The province of ZUN ROOF enters the fold.
With it, we're only two Holy Sites away from reforming the Zunist faith. But without TRUCK, does FORD F150 have what it takes?

Only time will tell...
