THE KARIMID SULTANATE OF ALEPPO
Uthman ibn Sirdar, Sultan of Aleppo
Having taken Egypt, the Syrians proceeded to the next part of the plan: The destruction of Nubia. To this end, the A'ir nomads were recruited. They recieved their payment as they passed through Thebes. For his own effort, he gave his famous general Falchid all the troops: 21,000 cavalry, 5500 infantry plus 15 warships. Falchid would directly attack Nubia and its capital Dongola. But when Falchid crossed the Nile from Faras into Nubia, he was shot down by two arrows: one to his right chest and one to his left eye. He died instantly. The army withdrew to Thebes in disarray.
There was no one handy now to stop the persistent Yemeni raids. The sea dogs raided Misr, Sinai and Petra and caused the latter two to rebel. Ghebel Gharib switched sides. Faiyum revolted too. Uthman lamented Falchid's death. Who can be trusted to pursue the war? In other news, Palmyra became cultivated.
THE BLACK HORDE (Karakhanids)
Qaputeg, Khan of Kara-Khan, Yabghu of the Western Horde
DIPLOMACY: Atob Turks(a, later destroyed)
The Black Horde finally made their move to the west. It was the land of the Pechnegs who have become so settled they have almost become civilized themselves. On the way to Levedia, the Karakhanids were joined by the Atob Turks at Emba. The whole host crossed into Donets then Levedia and attempted to riad this homeland. The Pechnegs though they numbered 35,000 were enough to protect their crops. The 100,500 hordesmen then moved against Taganov itself. It was unwalled, you see. The Pechnegs chose to fight to the death then inside the city itself. Having to fight in the close quarters of Taganov, the Black Horde was repulsed by the Pechnegs and the citizens of Taganov. With 75,500 riders left, the Black Horde (without the Atob who were wiped out) retreated to Khazar to consider their options.

THE A'IR NOMADS
Biren, Kerker Ranger
Sha'un's mighty force of 152,500 galloping madmen left the dull land of Kerkoure and got to the Nile Valley. There, bags of gold, in a pile, were given to them by the Karimid Emir. 'Help me destroy Nubia and this Reward is yours', was the Emir's written message. The Nubians were actually willing to grant free passage (for wihat purpose I'm not sure) but that was revoked once Sha'un's men attacked Adulis. After that a great bounty equal to the Syrian treasure was collected by the sack of Mitsiwa and the burning of villages between the Red Sea coast and Soba. Sha'un died in 1108. The new Rangelord was called Biren.
THE MUSENGEZI OF GAMO-GOFA

They were pacified and a double garrison was left behind (you gotta do that). Finally to Kefa. After the last two regions, Momballa-ka's army was now equal to the Kefa. Both sides stalemeated for two rounds untio both sides gave up the fight from exhaustion.

THE IDRISID EMIRAT
Yehi the Great, Last of the Idrisids, Emir of Almaghreb and Alandalus
Without boys, Yehi consulted a mystic sufi who divined (through mysterious means - though actually this man was a time traveler who could peer into the past and future using specialized video cameras) that Yehi would not have any sons - ever. Yehi would be the last of the Idrisids. To make for a safer continuation, he asked for his eldest and most beloved daughter, Jasmine, to marry the up and coming Prince of Idjil, Aladin. This union was almost not to be because of the machinations of the corrupt vizier Ja'far and his talking tropical bird, Iago. But then a genie appeared and saved the day for all (the genie, by the way, was actually a space man name Mork from Ork. The Mystic Sufi found this out about him and that his race would someday fight nasty battles with genetically engineered Space Marines over the right to mine shiny metallic-blue stones, but that won't happen for a couple thousand years).
AL AGHLABID EMIRAT AS SIQILLI
Sina, Amir al Balerum

THE PECHNEG KHAGANATE OF LEVEDIA
The Pechnegs finally got attacked by a horde after so many had just used Levedia as a conduit to invade richer lands elsewhere. The 100,000 strong Black Horde attempted to raid Levedia, but Yikma and the home army stopped them. In the city of Taganrov itself, the Levedians made a stand (for the Black Horde didn't destroy the Pechneg army in the open field like they should have). The city was saved though common people died (the city would have grown, but now it didn't). In 1100, Yikma himself died. His young son, the unhealthy Bjorn was now the Khagan.

His son, Igor, was ready to violate more civil rights.
THE KINGDOM OF DENMARK
The Danes volunteered to be the Pope's miliary arm instead of the Burgundians. In 1096, the Lorraine navy (24 ships) joined with Dnaish troop transports and shuttled across the North Sea and the English Channel to be disgourged at Sussex.

These were posted to guard Wessex and the capital Portsmouth while the Epopic Danish force (13,000 infantry) landed in Sussex and occupied the town of London. Caedred II died. The new king Lenolem dismissed the Matriarchy's clerics from the infrastructure to save money.
THE GERMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
Michael V, Bishop of Aix-La-Chapelle, Pope of the Catholic Church
Pope Michael V himself organized a counter-offensive to take the war to England itself.

The Danes however were prepared and were awaiting orders at Jutland. The Pope with 24 galleys picked these Danes up and (making sure there were no hostile navies about) landed troops at Sussex.
