    *sits comfortably in front row of Westminster Abbey as the Abbot speaks from his vellum, kneeling in front of the altar*

    "Almighty One, we come to you in prayer, and ask you for your pinions to watch over us in these times of woe. There is one thing higher than Royalty: and that is religion, which causes us to leave the world, and seek, you, the one true God. It is for this reason that you have brought to this Earth. To be purified and cleansed of our sins through good works, so that we may escape the fires of purgatory and be instead rewarded through eternal repose with You.

    There is only one Christ, Jesus, one faith. All else is a dispute over trifles! Only the righteous may avoid walking the path of the dammed - through penance done in service to Him.

    The noble followers of Christ must come to the aid their fellow Christians in the East. The infidel Turks are advancing into the heart of Eastern Christendom; Christians are being oppressed and attacked; churches and holy places are being defiled!

    Jerusalem is groaning under the Saracen yoke - even its holy name as the high place of God has been stripped from it! The Holy Sepulchre is in Moslem hands and has been turned into a mosque! Pilgrims are harassed and even prevented from access to the Holy Land.

    The pious West must march to the defense of the pious East. All should go, rich and poor alike. The Franks and Austrians have turned their face from God - they must be made to stop their internal wars and squabbles. Let them seek penance, and go instead against the infidel and fight a righteous war.

    God himself will lead them, for they will be doing His work. There will be absolution and remission of sins for all who die in the service of Christ. Here they are poor and miserable sinners; there they will be rich and happy. Let none hesitate; they must march at once. God wills it!"

    *kneels with the approving parishioners and begins reciting the Apostles Creed*

    The Muslim brotherhood welcome our new brother Mongolians, whose majority is now following Muslim faith.

    As part of our holy mission, we would be more than happy to educate your people about the glory of the one truth faith.

    *nod nod*

    Never trust a Saracen. ;)

    Their rulers have turned from the cross to the crescent. We know them no longer. No worry though. We shall liberate their huddled masses, yearning to worship freely. ;)

    If requested, Gustavus Adolphus can send a catholic missionary to Mongolia in order to forge good partnership between him and the new Khan.

    'a' missionary? :lol: well, if you can see the missionaries preaching among the Mongolians, you will see how faithful we really are.

    This day belongs to all the Muslims, as the gateway to Europe has finally opened to the right God. The once great empire can no longer resist the second wave of our Mandekalus and their queen chooses to abandon the fortress of Constantinople. The black sea will soon shine in the moon light, once the remaining heathens are eradicated and the Mongolians are fully converted to the true God.

    As an aside, well well done by the way to the Ayyubids. That's quite the coup. Ah well....the English pikes look forward to doing battle with your cavalry in times to come:goodjob:

    Blame the Swedish, they withdrew their help somehow and let Constantinople fall. While our Turk ally and brother have been extremely supportive with bows, roads and funds.:goodjob:

    Most of the Turkish war effort is diverted to our navy. Those dromons need to be cleared from the great Sea! We are slowly gaining the upper hand and we expect the remnant of the once-great Byzantium fleet to be either sunk or captured soon. And with Constantinople in the hand of our ally, we expect it would be even easier now.

    Glory to Allah!

    We urge our Turkish friends to send that great navy deeper into the Mediterranean Sea. Italy and Spain must be broken, but the war has been at a stand still for generations now while both nations expand behind the front lines.

    A call out for aid to our brothers in arms. We need camels to faster support the front lines. Any man that is willing to part with his beasts will be payed in full.

    For posterity, let it be known that the English ambassador to the Empire is proud to note that the Tetragrammatic cross and Double Eagle banners once again fly on the ramparts of Constantinople.
