What’s up my dudes? I slept through the last lot of narration but I’m awake now and I’ll contribute. Welcome to part 2 of CHG, in which we look for maximum salt. Looking here, we see that taqn didn’t believe me when I said that the anglo saxons weren’t going to attack him. Most egregiously, he invested his Great General in a plot to promote his “”””””LEGIONS””””” Canterbury isn’t going to last to this sort of treachery.

Great General Count: 1
Now for the good front. Fortress Gaul stands. I love my citadels. Hopefully I don’t lose all my shit. Western Frankia is in flames at the Anglo-Saxons come in for the patented spitroast.

GGs: 2
Randy thinks he can rebel with 2 handaxes. It’d be interesting if he takes it, but i don’t think he will. Amorica will continue to taste the sweet nectar of civilisation.
That’s a lot of Visigothic troops. The Suebi are going to be in for a tough fight. .
This is the West Roman event. The pirates take a stab at the Roman fleet! They probably won’t last though.
The Romans haven’t landed in Africa, the Vandals absolutely toasted them. Cartenna has flipped to the Mauro-Romans though, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens there.

GGs: 3
Here we see two irrelevant CSs fight each other. I think Lucky will do well, but at the very least, one CS will win and one CS will lose. (this is actually a very similar line as what I had written for the rerun part, so I’m leaving it here) Here we also see the traitorous Gepid General.

GGs: 4
It’s cute to see the Rugii and the Ostrogeats settling. I wish them well.
The Alans seem to be enjoying themselves. I’m not sure what they’re doing though.
Oh yeah, Byz and Persia are fighting. I think Byz will take this city and then not do a lot. It’ll be interesting though.
Aksum is off and settling, as most tiny civs are tending to. I wonder if they’ll get swole.
The front is pushing in favour of Gaul, not sure if it’ll go farther though.
The Visigoths are making an excellent go of eating up the Suebi. I think this will be an easy war for them.
Cartenna has taken some serious damage, it might fall.
Byzantine positioning is weird, but they seem set to push back the Persian menace.
OH NO. RANGED UNITS HAVE KILLED MY BOYS. THINGS DON’T LOOK GOOD.
One Suebi city down. Only 4? More to go.
Cartenna falls, mostly unsurprisingly.
The Ostrogoths use a little thing called “production” to show those Gepids what-for!
Peroz might actually fall. This is bad news, because then it’s only a short stroll to Ctesiphon.
MY CITADELS AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Though, it looks like the Franks are mostly distracted. RIP Canterbury though.
The Visigoths are actually giving it a serious go. I really don’t like the chances of the Suebi.

GGs: 5
Oh damn, the Mauro-Romans might actually retake the city.
Peroz falls! The Persians mount a defence of their capital!
Canterbury falls to Taqn, which kills the Anglo GG. This is two GGs that have died at taqn’s hands. Q.Q

GGs: 4
Cartenna stays firmly in Vandal hands, but the Mauro Romans have a GG! The count increases.

GGs: 5
While some Ostrogeat cities are taking damage, Lucky’s army has been hit hard. I’m not sure the Gepids will make any ground today. .
The Persians retaliate!
Peroz falls again! GAUL CAPTURES A CITY LMAO WHAT
So we did! Diplomacy and citadels OP
The Visigoths haven’t taken many cities, but I still fully expect them to.
The Persians are pushing back. They might actually hold the city, despite it currently being in Byzantine hands.
My assessment appears to be correct.
OH NO IT FLIPPED BACK.

GGs: 6
The persians are off sailing somewhere.
And while they’re off sailing, the Romans push back by finding troops from somewhere.
The Roman navy has actually attempted an AI naval invasion. I can see this going nowhere.
The Mauro-Romans have been firmly repulsed.
MY CITADELS KEEP BEING PILLAGED. AAAAAAAA The cavalry is set to arrive.
This is just funny at this point.
Oh hey, here comes the Roman navy.
The Ostrogeats are pretty safe at this point.
I AM BECOME BALLISTA, DESTROYER OF WORLDS.

GGs: 7
Middle eastern ping pong continues.

GGs: 8
Oh boy, the Visigoths have found their forces and are pressing into Suebi clay!
There are only so many ways I can describe a city flipping back and forth.
THE LINE IS PUSHING. PRAISE THE ARTILLERY
They’re making progress! Which is less than can be said for the Persians and Romans.
Naval warfare looks funny.
R E C O N Q U E S T
The Suebi are losing ground! But they’re not losing Great Generals!

GGs: 9
The Anglo Saxons are my distraction while I win on the front. However, the settler is running the fuck away lmao. I’m sorry Lung. I’ll pay you back.
There are now TWO Vandal GGs as they push back the Roman fleet.

GGs. 10
I think Brigantium will fall. Just a hunch.
God Bless The Ballista.
I’m just going to say Byz wins and stop commenting on this.
I’M SO SORRY LUNG
WHERE DID THE SUEBI GG GO. O NO

GGs: 9
Y’all Persians tryna make my look like a liar, aren’t you?
I DON’T HAVE ANY MELEE UNITS TO TAKE THE CITY. BALLISTAS HAVE FAILED ME.

Core and Stats: Well that was a wild ride, but it’s all cores and stats from here so I’m going to bail. Final GG count is 9, but there’s likely going to be more of them floating around. I think the Visigoths have 2, for instance. Anyway, enjoy yourselves for the next week. I’ve been your narrator Supe and please stay tuned for an announcement as to why I’m counting your GGs.
