    Crusader Knights II: DFON Edition Season 2

    See this thread for the previous gameplays and what it's about. Post here to be added to the royal lineage.

    In terms of where we will start I think it would be more interesting and challenging to start as a count in control of a single county. By doing this we must rely on diplomacy and intrigue rather than militarism to stay alive. I think that a good start would be either Anxi Province (Dunhuang) where we play as a border protectorate of the Tang Dynasty and control the start of the silk road. Or we could play as one of a handful of rulers that still follow the ancient, dying, faith of Zoroastrianism at the eastern part of the Abbasid Empire.​

    01: FREENOBAN Beginnings

    [​IMG]

    We start within Dunhuang, the last remnants of the Tang Empire's interests within central Asia. To our north is the powerful Uyghur Khaganate. To the west lies the Tarim Basin Oasis states.

    The powerful Tang Empire's influence used to control most of Central Asia, even going so far as to have a protectorate over northern Afghanistan for a time. The 600s were a time of conquest of the Tarim Basin after the defeat of both the Western and Eastern Gokturks. However, the recent An Lushan Rebellion has severely crippled the Tang, creating a power vacuum across much of Central Asia.

    The Hexi Corridor which once connected us to China has been conquered by the Tibetan Empire leaving us stranded. The Oasis States that were previously under Tang hegemony have seceded. The Uyghurs, a successor of the Gokturks maintain a powerful empire to our north.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Blackjack serves as the protector general of Anxi (Dunhuang). Our Dynasty, FREENOBAN, dons the traditional colors of red and yellow in its emblem. He marries the sister of the king of Arsi, a small city-state and secures an alliance. Although this alliance is militarily weak, it will act as a deterrent towards agression, especially from the large duchy of Kroran to our west.

    [​IMG]

    WizardOfOrz is soon born but of the wrong gender.

    [​IMG]

    Mai is born of the right gender and Blackjack rejoices that a heir is produced.

    [​IMG]

    However, Mai's health is in a precarious position. Life will be hard but should he survive until adulthood the kingdom will be his.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Mormolycia and Dice Dragon are born but from concubines. Although they are both legitimate children they will be looked down upon by both their elder siblings and the court. The dynasty of FREENOBAN is secure however, with three sons to carry on the family name should Blackjack meet and untimely death.

    [​IMG]

    Although we are an extremely weak county surrounded by much more powerful states, we have the potential to grow into an economic powerhouse. Being situated at the very start of the silk road puts us in a lucrative position. If we can prevent being invaded either through diplomacy or intrigue, we can build up our economy and eventually purchase mercenaries to serve as our armies.​

    02: Forging Alliances

    [​IMG]

    Tate is born from a concubine.

    [​IMG]

    Matt is born from the countess.

    [​IMG]

    However his birth is not a joyous occasion as his mother dies from a heart attack soon after giving birth.

    [​IMG]

    Kroran, our neighbor to the west is weak from an ongoing rebellion. We call our allies and invade them while their guard is down.

    [​IMG]

    We subjugate the Kroran and force them to pay tribute to us.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    We betroth mai to the daughter of the wealthy Khotan count and subsequently obtain an alliance with them.

    [​IMG]

    Crim has inherited the attractive trait from his father. He would have been an ideal candidate for heir had it not been for the fact that he has the dull (stupid) and gluttonous (fat) traits.

    [​IMG]

    Dice Dragon has the homosexual trait.

    [​IMG]

    Blackjack II is born as the son of mai.

    [​IMG]

    We plot to kill the count of the Kroran to weaken their strength for future invasion.

    [​IMG]

    We succeed however it is now known that Blackjack is a murderer and our opinion ratings with everyone decreases.

    [​IMG]

    Having killed his father we now invade Kroran to imprison his son and subsequently ransom him back for gold.

    [​IMG]

    WizardOfOrz II is born, again as a girl.

    [​IMG]

    The king of Arsi, our former ally, has died. Since mai is the grandson of the former king and the current ruler is merely a child he has a claim to the throne.

    [​IMG]

    We usurp the throne of Arsi and it is now under our control.

    [​IMG]

    In the meantime Blackjack has remarried into Hindu nobility. However he has been cucked.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Mai II and Mormolycia II are born.

    [​IMG]

    Blackjack dies at the old age of 64. Mai inherits the throne. However because of how the succession laws are for our culture group, Mormolycia inherits the county of Anxi and thus it is out of our control.

    [​IMG]

    Dice Dragon II is born.

    [​IMG]

    With the old treaties dissolved with the death of Blackjack we must renew or discard our former relations. We decide to attack our former ally the Turtam.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The Khagan of the Uyghur is much more accepting of mai than of Blackjack and we are able to betroth mai II to his son. We create an alliance that will cement our power over the Tarim states.

    [​IMG]

    Space Fish II is born.

    [​IMG]

    Our war with the Turtam is not going as planned. They have sacked and occupied our capitol (to the left). Meanwhile nomadic raiders sack our western province.

    [​IMG]

    We manage to prevail with the help of our Khotan allies.

    [​IMG]

    However with both of our provinces thoroughly sacked it will take several years to recover from the economic devastation.

    [​IMG]

    Mormolycia easily succumbs to the Uyghur horde and is imprisoned as his county is annexed into the Khaganate.

    [​IMG]

    Tate II is born.

    [​IMG]

    Blackjack II, our heir, takes after his uncle Mormolycia. He has inherited the attractive trait but he is also dull. We may have to assassinate him in favor of his younger brother Tate II.

    [​IMG]

    The Uyghurs to our north have expanded greatly, conquering both of its northern neighbors. We shouldn't have to worry too much about them because of our standing alliance but we are still susceptible to raids by the khans under the khagan's rule. Our next steps should be rebuilding both of our provinces and using our alliances to conquer the nearby Tarim states.

    Gavelkind succession will prove to be a problem in the future though. Because Blackjack had 3 concubines in addition to his wife he fielded many children. This insures that the dynasty doesn't die out. However with gavelkind succession, the holdings are distributed between the male heirs which is why Mormolycia took Anxi province. To stop this we have to have only 1 male heir but it does present some difficulties of what would happen if that male heir dies from disease or mishap.

    You married the brother of the Uyghur Khagan. You're useful because you cement the alliance between us and the Uyghurs.

    Probably dead in a ditch somewhere in India.

    03: The Reign of Mai

    [​IMG]

    With the frequent plundering of our provinces our trade posts have been decimated. To regain our economy we focus on rebuilding them.

    [​IMG]

    Matt II is born.

    [​IMG]

    However, Matt II is born as a sickly infant and we turn to our court physician to treat her ailments.

    [​IMG]

    Having rebuilt our economy we focus on attacking the Kroran. By conquering this province we can connect our kingdom.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile we inherit the once lost county of Anxi from Mormolycia who died in an Uyghur prison cell.

    [​IMG]

    Saccharin II is born.

    [​IMG]

    The sneaky Kashgar see that our armies are busy with the Kronan and declare war on us.

    [​IMG]

    We now fight on 3 separate fronts as our enemies surround us. We request help from our Uyghur and Khotan allies but they are busy fighting wars of their own.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Without help from our allies our armies, vastly outnumbered, quickly fall under the combined Kroran-Kashgar forces. We must concede both wars.

    [​IMG]

    We lost our western province and must pay war reparations to the Kronan. We are deeply in debt.

    [​IMG]

    WizardOfOrz III is born.

    [​IMG]

    Blackjack II, our heir, suddenly dies leaving Tate II as the new heir apparent.

    [​IMG]

    However, saccharin II, Blackjack II's son stands to inherit the county of Anxi much like Mormolycia before him.

    [​IMG]

    To prevent the kingdom from splitting again on succession, Mai plots to end saccharin II's life and leave Tate II as the sole heir.

    [​IMG]

    Saccharin II mysteriously dies from a fall.

    [​IMG]

    Mai III is born.

    [​IMG]

    We are relentlessly being marauded by Uyghur raiders. They have set siege to the capital and have already imprisoned much of the royal family. To placate them and prevent any further raids we offer them the county of Anxi which they graciously accept. Saccharin II's ghost weeps.

    [​IMG]

    Mormolycia III is born.

    [​IMG]

    The Kronan, foolishly believing that the Kashgar acted in good faith are betrayed and their kingdom succumbs to the ever-growing Kashgar kingdom. They are now the strongest kingdom in the Tarim Basin, commanding 6 provinces. However we notice that a Buddhist military order is available for hire and would gladly fight against the pagan Kashgar Tengrists. We declare war to regain our honor after the shameful loss of our former capitol.

    [​IMG]

    Despite our armies outnumbering them they have managed to defeat us in battle. We request the help of our allies.

    [​IMG]

    Our allied armies vastly outnumber and overwhelm the Kashgar sending them in full retreat. We lay siege to their provinces and march upon their capitol where we can secure the war and force a victory.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Dice Dragon III, Space Fish III, and Tate III are born.

    [​IMG]

    Before we were able to secure victory Mai unexpectedly dies. Unfortunately both the casus belli for war and our alliances are now void with the passing of our king. Tate II the imbecile takes the throne.

    [​IMG]

    Aside from being dull he is physically weak as well. These shortcomings will prove to be a very difficult challenge in court and international politics.

    [​IMG]

    The Uyghur have expanded further, even managing to subjugate the Muslim kingdom of Khiva. The once-raiders to our north occupy Anxi which we will reconquer at a later time. Our immediate threat lies to the west with the powerful kingdom of Kashgar.​
