Welcome back to the Fleeing Phoenix! We begin this episode with a Hungary who thinks he is immune to AE (spoiler alert, he's not)
Greek Patriots reclaim cyprus to us from the Mamluks giving us some nice muslim units
We declare war upon Naples to regain Italy.
Forgetting to turn the land unit slider up Naples attacks our force only to be crushed, good going!
While his father conquers the Italians our heir is conquered by a boar.
Atleast the second son is pretty good, (No hunting!)
A bad sign? We are beating the Italians and the phoenix rises what could go wrong?
I set the ottomans to rivals to gain some better relations with The Mamluks since the ottomans already hate us (-200)
We Vassilize Ferrara,
and take some territory from Naples so we can vassilize them later.
Yes! Who's laughing now comet!
Oh..
Fine comet you win! I should not have disrespected you, I'm sorry!
Thankfully God forgive our disbelif and The Turks don't take Constantinople. Meanwhile we take a misson to regain Northern Italy although it will be a bit with our current AE. Can't make Austria to angry.
Our prayers are with you Mamluks!
You know never mind..
Well hello there Naples!
We make them orthodox giving our AE some more time to die down.
Oh hello! (We also get a event that gives us 209 ducats!)
Oh you are at war with Austria Venice?
Thank you!
Perhaps the entire Iberian Peninsula can beat The Turks? Take a bet!
Our opportunistic emperor strikes again!
Perfect!
Time to vassilize Naples!
Aha!
More manpower!
The gods did not even warn us! Damn ye!
Welcome Helene 2.0 worse in every single way reminds me of something, can't quite put my finger on it though.
Anyhow after asking the imperial namer what he was thinking we vassilize Serbia.
Followed shortly by Naples
We have traded some holdings in Greece for gains in Italy and several islands. Turks are still scary though..
Diplomatic view showing our vassals and allies. (and all our cores we must reclaim). Untill next time, thanks for reading and I'll see you in the comments! Oh and if you placed the bet on the Iberians you lost.
