WELCOME TO TRUCK

When we last left TRUCK, he had subjugated the Horn of Africa and founded the glorious duchy of FORD F150. For reasons explained in the last set of pictures, expanding into Miaphysite lands would be a very bad idea. TRUCK isn't discouraged; he just turns his attention east.

The Zunist holy sites are marked in white; capturing those is our long term goal.
VICTORY
Our first war since creating the duchy is a narrow success. Since we've given away a ton of land, our troop count has shrunken dramatically. Even with the tactical genius that is TRUCK, we just barely scraped by in the war. Must remember in the future; even if we go over our limit for land, sometimes it's worth it for the extra troops.
Why isn't there an option for duels to be mandatory?
HORSEPOWER IS A COWARD
HE IS NO SON OF TRUCK
That's more like it!
TRUCK TRUCK IS OF AGE
I won't marry him off just yet, I have plans...
MINI COOPER IS ALSO OF AGE
My plan is coming together
WHAT
YOU CAN'T MARRY SIBLINGS AS ZUNIST? WHAT KIND OF RELIGION IS THIS?

My plan is in ruins. I figured that MINI COOPER is half TRUCK and TRUCK TRUCK is half TRUCK, so by marrying them them together, I could get one full TRUCK...

Unfortunately, Paradox had other plans.
MORE KIDS
TRUCK is running out of truck related names.

(don't worry, she was just a concubine)
HE THINKS WE ARE WEAK, HE THINKS WE ARE VULNERABLE

HE IS WRONG
THE INVADERS ARE DEAD
THE REBELS ARE DEAD
These guys are dumber than TRUCK.
TRUCK's offensive might is only matched by his ability to hold onto his realm.
Let's see what the sun thinks of rebels.
Natural death indeed.
Just when one problem ends, another takes its place
We've expanded far enough east to make contact with the Zunists of Afganistan. Our second born son finds a wife.

They love us!
ANOTHER REVOLT DOWN,
TRUCK CAN'T SWIM
Socotra is sadly out of our reach for now, but we periodically gesture rudely at them from the safety of our coast.
TRUCK'S GENIUS CONFOUNDS SPACIAL LIMITATIONS
Make no mistake, that baby is named TRUCK TRUCK TRUCK.
TRUCK HAS FRIENDS
They may be halfway across the world, but they're friends nonetheless.
SAME STORY DIFFERENT CHAPTER
TRUCK steps on the gas and declares a conquest war. This war is risky, as it removes the buffer between FORD F150 and the growing powers of Mecca and Medina, but TRUCK's thirst for glory cannot be sated.

It should be an easy fight and it is, but TRUCK's victory is so absolute that reality itself unfolds, which is to say, my game crashed. My last save was just before this series of wars, so unfortunately, I lost a bit of progress.

Next time, we'll continue our unrelenting march east for the glory of the sun!
