This is the situation in Asia Minor after the end of the wars. Saladin, aggressive for a while now, calls off the dogs from Jerusalem just as the city was beginning to weaken. I can see why, however. Sparta recovered nicely from apparent exhaustion (fighting Rome, Germany, Israel, Byzantium, Armenia, and the Ayyubid Empire at nearly the same time for a while) to secure its gains in the heart of former Byzantium. Cyprus is a nice little pickup towards a future Mediterranean war. I am sure the Gold-and-White will turn towards an African campaign against Carthage or their new wars to the south.
