  1. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    Well, guess the Mongol army is trapped between a rock and a hard place. Imagine what it’ll do for Julius’ legitimacy if he captures the Khan alive and parades him through the streets, it’ll be a Triumph like no other.
  2. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    Dear god, it’s worse than I imagined. Only 2000 men left in Constantinople to contend against cannons? How is Julius going to get to Constantinople in time? And there’s 2 Hun armies!!!
  3. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    Probably should have specified Mediterranean Fleet. Doubt they have anything that can reach the Sea of Marmara, the Mediterranean should be a Roman lake.
  4. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    At least the Huns don’t have a navy, the Asian troops don’t really have a way to cross into Europe, imagine if the full army went via the European side.
  5. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    I honestly expected Manuel to have less control over the Crusade, given how rowdy the Crusaders can be. I imagine that given the distance from the Roman heartland that the Egyptian interior will be divided up between different Crusader lords with some sort of Feudal arrangement. The Romans...
  6. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Epic update, I suppose we’ve been spoiled but it seems like it’s 5 updates worth of content compressed into 1! Assuming Ibrahim is finished, so would the next phase of the war be an Indian invasion? Conquering the entire lot is impossible but I’m sure there’s plenty of loot involved?
  7. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    The man is mad, it could be against anyone.
  8. Our Fractured Crown: An Eastern Roman Timeline (1078 - Onwards)

    Getting the sense that Artemios will fulfil much more of the traditional “Emperor” responsibilities whilst freeing up Alexis to be a full time general without any additional baggage. Provided Komnenoi remain loyal it sounds like a more potent combination.
  9. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    The Romans can take the key port cities and rule from Alexandria. The Crusaders take the rest as a vassal (that’ll break away when the Romans eventually have a civil war). We know already that Jerusalem will become a kingdom soon, will it be both Levantine and Egypt? I think it’ll be interesting...
  10. The Undying Empire: A Trebizond Timeline

    Wish you a speedy recovery!
  11. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    It’s great to see this back, hope you’re doing well! And what a set up for the next chapter, I’m hyped.
  12. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    How dominant is Greek the Empire? If the Exarchs of Italy are taking old Roman names maybe not so much. Looks like the Makurians got off easy, a decisive battle killing their king should have resulted in more tribute or concessions.
  13. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    Sounds like Constantine is an Emperor that historians in the modern age will love, but will go unappreciated for the longest time.
  14. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    Going to echo the sentiments here. This war was a great victory for the United Kingdom’s, but a massive loss for the Kingdom of England. And won’t this naval rebalancing also affected Ireland too? They don’t have much to offer anyway so now it’s really the Kingdom of France + 2.
  15. An Age of Miracles Continues: The Empire of Rhomania

    All things considered, this is probably the best result to ensure peace on the western border whilst the Romans are free to focus on the Ottomans. Lombardy has been severely neutered, and a series of independent buffer states guaranteed by all major powers involved. Rome even got to keep Rome!
  16. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    Looks like the Doukai just experienced a reverse OTL Manzikert. Hope Manuel isn’t going full mad king.
  17. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    Is this a typo? Otherwise that’s a very long lasting institution! Will be interesting to see if Manuel discovers if his son is essentially a hostage, and the war doesn’t destroy the line of succession.
  18. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    :D :o All kidding aside, it’s great the succession is much more secure with an adult heir and an orthodox mother versus an underaged hated Latin regency. Surely Andronikos inclusion was very purposeful so it looks like the Roman’s relatively smooth ride will be ending soon.
  19. And All Nations Shall Gather To It - A Crusades TL

    Does Manuel have a male heir? Hopefully with the butterflies he’ll not die and leave underaged one TTL.
  20. The Eternal Empire: Emperor Maurice dies before being overthrown

    Here comes the civil war..... But in terms of resources what is it? Roman Europe vs Asia?
