Hello and welcome back to The Fleeing Phoenix chapter 4, The Phoenix rises!. First of a slight overview over the glorious Byzantine Empire.
Instantly Spain decides losing once is not enough, guess they have a right to be pissed. I did take their religous capital.
This battle pretty much won us the war as it let us peace out shortly after.
We get Ragusa from the war along with money, we end up selling Ragusa to Serbia to get a free core there. Gotta save them admin points!
Wait a stable Timurids? Killing Kebab? I approve!
We integrate Tuscany now that Austria calmed down a bit.
We declare holy war on Venice for mighty Orthodoxy!
Naples breaks free and get an instant religous war. Gotta love religous ideas!
Something intresting happens forgot to screenshot it though! But anyhow After we puppet Siena we inherit their wars. Namely the one against Austria... We quickly pay the warleader for peace.
A screenshot showing our ideas. I chose diplomatic since I prefer not to fall behind in other tech levels. Religous ideas was a obvious second choise for the conversion along with the awesome things it gives including the cacus belli.
We then chose Offensive ideas since I prefer them over the defensive ideas. Attack is the best defense!
I needed a diplo relation back soooo...
Did not really want anything from him anyhow..
It is okay Serbia you are now a full part of the glorious anti kebab machine!
More random wars from the Siena thing, this time with Venice on my side! (while I was still at war with them for a while.)
More Siena wars..
Death to Kebab! Greece will be returned to the righteous! Remove Kebab from premise!
A huge battle that lead to enormous casulties. I wish I could show you the awesome 0,0,1,2 dice rolls I got!
With a number advantage and the RNG gods back on our side we win another battle!
Death to Kebab!
One less nation to worry about.
Oppurtunistic bastards...
More crushing of The Turks!
As the Austrians peaced out I got kinda scared and ended the war with getting all my cores except Edirne back!
Christ.. A huge Commonwealth, Hansa killing Denmark and Thuringla killin Brandenburg?
The Phoenix rises!
Thank you for reading the 4th chapter of The Phoenix flees, if that is even a relevant name anymore.. It's looking up for the Byzantines and I ended the game with alliances with France, Austria and the Commonwealth. Hopefully they
don't randomly get outraged and end it like the AI likes to do... Anyhow thank you again and I will see you in the comments!
