In this war of giants, neither side has made any progress. Lahor has been starved out a bit by Afghan troops, but remains impenetrable. Perhaps out of frustration, Mirwais Hotak sends a lone composite bowman into Samarqand to die. I wonder what he did to deserve such a fate.
To the west, Armenia is making headway against the Timurids at Bukhara. It turns out that settlers don’t make very good soldiers. Armenia is gaining confidence, as they pull their catapult blockade closer to shore south of Yervantashat.
In the East, an Afghan settler knocks on Nyingchi’s gate, asking if they would kindly move so he can put down the flag he’s been carrying for, like, ever now. This open borders agreement between Tibet and Afghanistan may prove useful to the latter in the near future.
