    Brace yourselves for a long post...





    Yemeni Qazvin and Georgian Tehran in the same screen shot :eek:

    Spoiler :


    Never seen that before...

    Spoiler :


    mega Armenian vassal, they did all that on their own, no help from me :)

    Spoiler :


    Have no idea how that happened :mischief:

    Spoiler :


    Most powerful Abbassid caliphate I have seen at that point (right before zengid spawn). I (makuria) am their vassal, but since I only vassalized for fun not sure if that counts :crazyeye:

    Spoiler :


    Weirdest Rum in a game I've seen (this the same game where they captured Kermian)

    Spoiler :


    And now for the big one...

    Spoiler :


    Beware of the mighty Bulgarian empire!! :lol:

    I've seen the Bulgarian empire before--and got my hopes up to capture Constantinople prematurely--only to be dashed by a Byzantine respawn. :D

    Über-Mamluks!

    First, they went as far as Pakistan...
    Spoiler :

    ...then they collapsed the Byzantines...
    Spoiler :

    ...took Baghdad...
    Spoiler :

    ...and finally vassalized the Safavids and Karaman.

    Never seen 'em that overly strong. They didn't get to hold any titles, though.

    First they conquered the crusader states, and then they managed not to collapse to the Mongols. (I even own Bagdad!) They also picked up cities in Armenia and Nubia somewhere along the way.

    Luckiest event ever, the turn after I spawn. The next turn my capital's culture envelops it and I get 7 axemen, and captured Chittor early.
    It's about time--I've had the unluckiest converse event many times (which is the greed event for the iron SE of Chittor, because as soon as you conquer it, Malwa's culture takes it and they get the bonus).

    A little thing that had me smirk: I built the Krak in Konstantinoupolis and as a result the Ottomans would have sat outside my city walls forever bc city def was up to 250% and the bombardment effect of trebuchets reduced to 0. For a while I got a message "Suleiman has reduced your defense to 250%" which translated as "Suleiman has thrown candy bars at your city walls." for that matter.

    Lucky!!! I really got annoyed after playing several games with Armenia and I got a greed event (every single time) that told me to conquer Constantinople....... Mind you, Byzantium was still at its peak of power or I was supposed to fight my way through Rûm....

    Seljuks take Jerusalem:


    Here is Sindh, who aren't willing to capitulate, eventhough they have one city, one wounded swordman (check the background) and I am quite strong compared to them. Not sure if that is a bug or some kind of a feature.:crazyeye:

    Sindh not surrendering is quite common. All the Indian games I've played proved it.

    Seljuks taking Jerusalem should become more common place anyhow, as it was a pretty big event. Heck even the Khwarezmians took al-Quds but you NEVER see them take the city. I wonder if you can make it so that the Seljuks are locked into taking the city at one point.... :mischief:
