Drake pirated the Guinea Coast with success and I decided that I had better get some glory while I could ordered the Assassination of Admiral Coligny, but the assassinette only left his beard deshabitée and I lost my informant, but sneaked in some infuence in Scotland. The Empire sponsored Dunkirkers for Spain and assaulted Belgrade, losing 2,000 Mercenaries to cause 2,000 losses, but failing to take the city and raised 1,000 replacements in Szigetvar. The Spanish pirates grabbed fame and sailed up the River Medway to sink an English Squadron. This caused some confusion at the Admiralty as their computer crashed and Drake was sent to raid the Spanish Main, winning fame and treasure. I responded by sending the Border Reivers to steal Rising of the North, which I used to send de Sores to win more fame and 4,000 Pieces of Eight in the Spanish Main before departing for the Antilles.

At this point the Protestants woke up and realised they should have moved after the Dunkirkers. He raised 1,000 Regulars and 1,000 Mercenaries in Brussels and William and Naussau marched to besiege Spanish Calais. The Ottomans raised 2,000 Cavalry in Istanbul and moved 1,000 Jasinaries and 3,000 Cavalry to Nicopolis and Belgrade. The Imperial Mercenaries failed to intercept and for the loss of 2,000 men each the relieving army forced its way into the city and the siege was relieved, with the Imperial Army slinking back to Svigitvar. He also received a postcard from Tunis Dear Murad, we have arrived at Tunis, but we spend the first day unpacking and stretching our legs. Wish you were here. Much love, the Leaderless Ottoman Army.
Spain used Tenth Penny to raid the Bank of Amsterdam. England and France having jumped the gun the Emperor raised 2,000 Mercenaries in Svigitvar and the Protestants stormed Calais and marched on Rouen! The Sultan got another card from Tunis Dear Murad, were were ready to put Tunis to fire and sword for the greater glory of Islam, but it was such a nice day we decided to stay on the beach. Picking up a nice tan. See you later, the Leaderless Ottoman Army.
