Since you are in charge of Parma, a technical question.
Can you enhance research into the cheese?  Developing this world renowned resource could fill your coffers rapidly.
And developing  Parmigian-Reggiano cheese this early could make your Duchy quite the place for the jet-set to visit.
A fine vacation spot after your Crusading, or despoiling efforts.
This would be the high technology of the era!
“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Master Chiefs are sneaky, dastardly, and snarky miscreants who thrive on the tears of Ensigns and belly dancers.   Admiral Gerry Bogan.

At the point you are at in the AAR right now (Part 2), how many hours have you been playing?

Nice wordplay, geek.  Having a much better understanding of gameplay now, I enjoy this AAR even more :-)
