AAR Phillippe de Valois Marriage Bureau XX
NSDLG (Not So Famous Default Leader Guy), 6,000 Jasinaries and 2,000 Cavalry marched to Vienna for the final push for Murad's World Domination Cub Scout Badge. The Duke of Palma carted 4,000 Regulars and 1,000 Mercenaries across the Alps to Linz for the cardboard-counter-offensive. Norrey, 4,000 Regulars and 2,000 Mercenaries trotted for Portsmouth just in case and General de Fault took 1,000 Regulars from Paris to Rouen, beinging the garrison to 3,000. The Emperor remained static and Maurice van Nassau heaved his entire army from Amsterdam to Brussels.

Wearing his "I am the Wackee" T-shirt Murad III sent out his all-conquering fleet (10,000 woodworms sailing in close formation) with 4,000 leaderless Jasinaries transported to Tunis in Operation Put-That- Bloody-Torch-Out. Spain pumped up his military muscle, using the Spanish Road to sent Don John, 3,000 Regulars and 4,000 Mercenaries from Milan to join Palma at Linz. 4,000 New World Gold was used to send the 12,000 strong army to besiege Prague, Jesuit agents to London and raise 1,000 Mercenaries to protect Madrid. The Ottoman skirmishers warned NSFDLG of the move and he forced marched 6,000 Jasinaries and 2,000 Cavalry to join the 4,000 man garrison and preprare for battle. The sluggish Spaniards attacked the Ottoman entrenchments with 7,000 casualties, though the 5,000 Turks were lost as well it was enough to save Islamic Prague. England sent Drake out to ravage the Spanish Empire and tempted Murad with the flesh of the Sultan's Harem and he lost interest in the campaign...

I considered using Genoese Bankers to send off my own pirates, but put the money on Sad Ken in the 3:30 at St Denis and 'won' Desperate Assault and Elite Troops. The Empire Struck Back at the invader as Jeanne of Navarre raised 3,000 Mercenaries and Zrinyi marched on Belgrade with 1,000 Regulars and 5,000 Mercenaries. The Protestants used Holy League to buy 1,000 off the shelf Mercenaries in Brussels and was very patronising towards Brueghel.

With Murad hors de harem Spain used the Enterprise of England to push England over the finishing line, should the game last that far. He raised 1,000 Mercenaries in Naples in case the Turks went for the soft underbelly of Europe and sent Palma, Don John & Co to assault Vienna, but the wonder-leader NSFDLG intercepted again. His 7,000 troops surrounded the 5,000 clod-hopping Spaniards and cut them to pieces, capturing Palma and Don John, proving that while Murad may be otherwise occupied NSFDLG had his eye on the ball, though he lost 3,000 Jasinaries.
