Industrial Stage Zero: The Medieval Era
1105 Anno Domini
Next Turn's Orders is Due: Monday, March 10th 1997
Important News: I can now eMail your stat sheet to you, immediately after I post the newsfax onto the Web Page. If you would rather have your stat sheet eMailed to you rather than mailed, let me know. You can have your stats eMailed and your newfax regular mailed if you can't access the Web.
Section [9.9.1] How Nomadic Nations Work: The first two sentences, "When out in ....vast via Horde Diplomacy." should be crossed out. Table 2.9 make a provision for nomadic societies to ignore troop support in steppe regions.
Port Fortresses: Just to clarify and clear up that confusion. Port Fortresses may not be used for conduit anchors. You can, however, use them for land trade if the port fortress is within your Trade Range of sea zones from your nearest port.
Lords of the Earth, Campaign 12H: I can now officially announce that I will be starting Lords of the Earth Campaign 12H this month. Like Lords 9 this game will be a historical start at 1000 AD. There will be about 100+ openings which will be assigned by lottery. I plan two week turnarounds for this game, and because of that I can only accept local (Phoenix area) or eMail players. I will release a Turn 0 newsfax on the Web later this month. If you are interested let me know electronically, in person or by phone. I thank you very much for your interest and support.

Sabim Abm Bela'ad, Governor of the Roughlands
Sabim decided to interfere in the internal affairs of silly Christians by sending a fleet into the Aegean to wreak havoc. By 1102, 31 warships and 18 transports were loaded with 16,500 infantry and 7500 Daylami mercenaries who couldn't sing worth a bucket of lint. These sailed across the Black Sea to the Dardinelles and into the Aegean. They circled Crete but found that coast to be too well protected by 67 warships. The Arran flotilla took their chances raiding Lydia first then Macedon in 1103. No problem. No Greek resistance. The expedition got a little more bold now and landed on Thrace and exacted tribute. The city there (Pelles) was captured along with its merchant fleets. It was now the winter of 1105. Prince Ibrahim as Sama and Rafati brought their grizzled heads together and declared themselves to be pirate. Hosman was tossed overboard.
The regionals were anxious for twice great Hordes have used their lands as avenues and resting stops and tinkle grounds (Tavok 1102, Black Horde 1101 and 1105).

Mercs: 30mc, 20mi
THE ABBASID CALIPHAT (Dar al Islam)
Ar Rahid II, Kalifat Rasul Allah, Commander of the Faithful
In 1102, 270,000 Tavoki horsemen crossed through Kurdistan looking for trouble. The Caliph had made arrangements for his generals to defend many of his cities. The horde moved to Arbiliq however whose city Al Mustad was not so defended. After Arbiliq was raided, Al Mustad was assaulted and sacked. The Tavok rumbled into Karimid territory in the fall of 1103.
THE GHUZZ TURKSAl Aqshairu Sumna lacked the provisions to feed all
his troops. Indeed the majority would have to starve. This led to an uprising
where Sumna was skinned and his possessions were picked over lean by the
skinny troops. The Ghuzz splintered into small bands joining mutionous
Tavok tribes to repopulate the Turkic steppe.
THE KARIMID SULTANATE OF ALEPPO
Uthman ibn Sirdar, Sultan of Aleppo
DIPLOMACY: Faiyum(c), Sinai(c), Petra(t)
Uthman came of his palace to confront these pesky Zaidi himself. He took Falchid's army in Thebes and used the 21,000 cavalry and 5500 infantry to crush the lousy Ghebal Gharib. After that desert was pacified, Uthman got reinforced at Kalisma. At that time, 15,000 Yemeni camel-riders snuck through Petra and looted Palestine. In retaliation, Uthman with 18,000 cavalry plus 10,000 gurgling mercenaries marched on Mecca. They didn't have the time to loot Hijaz and time was short any way so they tried to raid Madina. 21,500 Yemeni troops stopped them. Uthman raced back to Petra by the end of 1105. Alumit was injured in Egypt by a tourist. Big bad news came in the form of the Tavok Horde, 1103. They raided Raqqah and Aleppo and sacked Damascus. More big bad news further north too. The Black Horde raided Paphlagonia, Galatia and then sacked glittering Ankara. Paphlagonia rebelled. Big good news may be on the way, the A'ir host who had terroized Nubia moved to Sinai.
THE ZAIDI EMIRAT of DANAKIL
Suleiman, Guardian of the Mandab Straits
The Rassids sent their horsemen north to disrupt the Karimids. Suleiman ordered no naval raids much to everyone's surprise. Lord Tala snuck into Nubia to hand the Coptics some cash. The historic co-operation betseen the Zaidi and the Copts have grated on the Muslim sensibilities of the Imamists for a long time.
THE DAYLAM PIRATES
Ibrahim as Sama
Ibrahim and his Arrani friends enjoyed their lives of adventure so much that they forgot their responsibilities. They hold Thrace hostage.
THE BLACK HORDE (Karakhanids)
Qaputeg, Khan of Kara-Khan, Yabghu of the Western Horde
The Black Horde gave up smashing Levedia. They took their traveling horse show to Asia Minor. Mulsim or Chirtian it mattered not. Qaputeg wanted their stuff. In 1102 the raids began: Paphlagonia, Bithnia and Lydia were depleted many wares. Undefended, the Greek city of Ephesus was sacked. Then the Karakhanids toured inland to soak Galatia and sack the Karimid's golden city of Ankara. Delayed by all the city dusting, the Black Horde wintered in the wilderness of Georgia in 1105.
THE GREAT TAVOK HORDE (Cherkassy, Xi Xia,
Layaidu, Khagan of the Steppe Peoples
The Big Boss Cherkassy-Tangut Horde (as of 1101, nerdy counters have tabulated about 229,500 Tavoki, 50,000 Ilhandi, 12,000 Damchog, 14,000 Haszi and 36,000 Tavorhod) took a hoof in the intregues of the Arab World. They drove themselves through Samanid owned Bogazgol destroying all the porta potties and breaking all the linoleum. Then, they trampled over all the good parks in Arran territories. Finally in 1102, they crossed the dangerous mountains of Kurdistan where giant dogs lurk. 16,500 of the horde was lost from rocksides, cliff falls and by being licked. That wasn't all - Kurdish agitiators with noisemakers filtered through the Tavok ranks screaming about ghosts. 55,000 were scared and deserted. An Arab assassin wearing the Caliph's Best Bud pin tried to off Layaidu. Layaidu survived with the help of his golden saddlebag. Later Layaidu got real angry with this bad experience and took it out on Arbiliq. The land was raided and the Abbasid city of Al Mustad was sacked. Layaidu would not be distracted from his true porpoise - to knock down the growing Karimid Sponge Empire.
The Karimids weren't paying attention. Their focus was on the crazy men who lived in the south. The Syrians posted no armies in their homeland of Aleppo. So easily was Raqqah looted. So easy was it for Aleppo itself to be plundered. The plan to enslave all the population of Aleppo would not work so long as Antioch was uncpatured and since Antioch was too well defended with 50 foot ramparts, the idea was out of the question. So in 1104, the Tavok, their allies and toady camp followers rode on to Syria, assaulted then sacked the ancient city of Damascus. No losses were suffered.
Mercs: 10mw, 10mi
THE MAKURIA KINGDOM OF NUBIA
Normal Ben Vise, Negus of Nubia, Owner of Dibbles

Yehi the Great, Last of the Idrisids, Emir of Almaghreb and Alandalus
The plots of Ja'far and his pet parrot Iago were far from over. The Emir, Yehi, had planned to free his subjects from the land so they could become free wage earners. Ja'far didn't like that and declared Yehi to be insane. Bung and the Duke called on Aladin to bail them out of a tight spot. Aladin did show up but was delayed by some of Ja'fars allies, the Bandits of Boa and the Black Dervish. Finally in a final confrontation while Yehi was in a cage hanging from the cealing, Aladin defeated Ja'far with the help of Mork who dropped his sonic screwdriver into the bowl of tist fluid. Ja'far and Iago were transformed into marble and has adorned the Aladin Gardins at Fez (Part of the growing list of attractions at Disneydesert) to this day. Bung's liver finally gave out of him. Autopsy physicians have pronounced that Bung's 'grape juice' ahd a little kick than was allowed.

Ian worked with the Pope he did not believe in to destroy the Wessex Kingdom. They needed more troops in Sussex. Some forts were built in the foothold and Ian took his ships back to Jutland. His 8 warships, 11 cargo ships were attacked by 12 English galleys. 5 transports sunk. He gathered his army at Jutland and moved them all by coast to Friesland. At Friesland, various Papal forces gathered including the ships that were driven from Sussex and the English Channel. A show of force was needed to reestablish their beachhead and the Danish troops were not thrilled working with Michael V. A combined navy of 8 Danish, 30 papal and 10 privateers drove away the English fleet from the Channel. Also with 26 transports, the Papal army of 10,000 cavalry and 9000 infantry regained Sussex.

Now with 11,000 men, Bleys guarded Sussex. Ralston and 12 warships picked off transports on two different occasions but lost 3 warships fighting 8 Danish warships and 3 more against 8 Papal galleys. In May 1103, the Danish/Epops came back in force and landed 10,000 cavalry, 9000 infantry at Sussex. Bleys fought them but didn't have the numbers. Fortunately his knights captured the Epop Michael V. Now with 3500, Bleys withdrew to Wessex. The enemy spent the rest of the time getting their army shuttled from Friesland to Sussex.
THE GERMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
Michael V, Bishop of Aix-La-Chapelle, Pope of the Catholic Church
Michael V and the Tick had to baby sit a bunch of noisy, rude Danish troops while their king was absent. These foreigners completely ignored the Pope's commands when the English attacked. The Danes even refused to board the Papal ships and surrendered to the English in the name of the Mother. The Pope and his ships withdrew to Friesland. Once Ian Iansson arrived there, the Pope announced that his troops will confront the English in Sussex because the Danish cannot be trusted. So the Pope and his forces landed in Sussex and pacified it themselves - but Micheal V was captured (The Tick was killed in the battle). Friesland rebelled at once. These were put down by the Danes who pacified the region and garrisoned their own troops there. For all of 1104-5, the Papal and Danish navies shuttled Danish troops to Sussex. Cash advances had been sent to the schmastic Danes and the Hungarians.
