  29. 29.jpg

    After the Ayyubids had the city surrounded, Jerusalem is somehow fine. All the Mamluks seem to have buggered off, and the ones who…

  30. 30.jpg

    Andrea Doria… the Exploria! It’s a nice, rhyming name. I have no idea who the person is, but the name is nice. However, that’s not…

    Things seem to have settled somewhat in Central America. There are still pirate pikemen in Palenque, but not much is going on. At…

  57. 57.jpg

    Alright, it seems that Canada is targeting Itazipcho now, and all the Blackfoot troops have evacuated the area. Generally that’s n…

  58. 58.jpg

    Tangier is Punic! And surrounded by Moroccan units! Unless Hannibal has absolute faith in his pikeman, spearman and elephant, it s…

  59. 59.jpg

  62. 62.jpg

    Cebu is in the yellow, and Korean troops, likely invading Vietnam, are massed around the area, making it difficult to defend. This…

  64. 64.jpg

    Chimgi-Tura is hanging in there for now, but if Atilla snipes the swordsman that may well change. One battering ram could easily t…

  65. 65.jpg

  70. 70.jpg

    Seeing the Philippines so low is testament to the powers in East Asia. As well as our usual suspects, I was surprised to see the H…

  71. 71.jpg

    Despite their numerous defeats, the Philippines stay in the top 12, city-wise. Nothing too dramatic has changed though.

  72. 72.jpg

    All the usual suspects, I see. Really the only somewhat surprising one is Persia, but even that isn’t too big of a deal. There’s n…

  73. 73.jpg

    Texas can into sudden relevancy? No, not the technology charts, the right hand side! A war has erupted in North America! A war whi…
