An alliance? This is a bit much for me at the start of a game which I barely know anything about. I am perfectly open to an alliance, which does not of course cause me conflict with the church, some time in the near future. But until game start, I would like to refrain from any major diplomacy, as seen with my refusal to ally the Papal States.
With that said, I am willing to form a non-aggression pact, where we agree to not fight any time soon, and recognize each other's right to land. I shall be speaking of this in terms of those thick grey regional lines, not the thin provincial lines-- I would like the province to my East, the one beyond it, and the one to my South-East. You are free to take Denmark and Northern France, as well as anywhere beyond; I want my Germany, and that's about the extent of my plans right now.
So does a mutual non-aggression pact seem OK?
