keep yr head up, problem girl


A missive to Emperor Maximillian II from Suleiman I, Sultan of the Ottoman Empire posted:

I have just received word of your recent arrangements with Don Carlos, and the news filled my heart with grief. Are your Christian nations so desperate to wed your daughters away that you would unleash even a Spaniard in their bedchambers? My own Rayize and Mihrimah were matched to supporters within my own court, to great joy and great prosperity.

I grieve, my friend, that you have found yourself in such dire ways. But I am also set to cares, that this sucking Spanish lamprey would use your astounding mercy towards it to leap the Mediterranian, and thereby adhere and irritate my own belly. This I cannot allow.

So I ask merely for some token of your faith as a neighbor, that this Catholic necessity will not sour the goodwill between us. Perhaps your new son-in-law could be pressed to prove himself useful, and grant you one of the fine baubles he clutches.

Allah's blessing be unto you,
His Magnificence, Suleiman I the Lawgiver

Addendum: Please pay no mind to the commotion in Belgrade. I am merely honoring a commemorative ceremony with a military parade. These men are at rest, and hold no enmity in their hearts. I am told that Commander Mehmed has even expressed a desire to visit Vienna some day.


Ottoman Tribute, declaring war on the HRE and gaining 2CP. Spain, then HRE may offer tribute--my choice of a random card or random treasure. If I accept (which I gladly will), I call off the war declaration and draw a card from the draw deck.

EDIT: Grammar.

A regrettable decision. We could have had peace. I do not anticipate the Spaniard will return you to your senses.

1CP - Mehmed will lead a force of eight infantry and one cavalry to Angram. HRE, do you wish to attempt an intercept?

Okay, maybe I'm missing something because I haven't spent much time with the marriage rules (useless as they are to Suleiman), but I can't for the life of me figure out why you'd want to marry Elizabeth I.

I mean, I get that the groom gets free mercenaries as a consolation prize. But what does England getting out of the arrangement that's worth throwing away an impulse and a 5CP card? Is it purely a bargaining chip, or is England getting some kind of reward that I'm oblivious to?

England also gets a card draw out of playing the event, so at worst, playing Virgin Queen to jilt comes out as a wash for England, depending on what they get out of negotiations. Once a male English Royal comes out, England can also self-jilt, though it's probably not worth it unless you're feeling lucky.
