Today I decide to play in Spain, but as a Muslim sheikh. Things initially go pretty okay! After a middling start on my first character, my second is a Brilliant Strategist with the inspiring leader modifier. Through my efforts to appease the sultan on the battlefield, I get a duchy, eventually giving me control over three additional counties. I become the sultan's marshal to boot. Well done, self!And then I get a little cocky. I throw myself into combat more willfully to try and expand my borders. Through which I lose a hand...then a leg, and finally get an infection. My new name? "The One-Handed."As a result, I'm not as popular with the ladies as I once was! We're looking at -15 permanent attraction opinion from now on, with now the additional negative modifier from the infection slapped on. It also doesn't help a hired a controversial female council member to be my Steward, adding another whopping -20 to the approval rating.All this matters, because I am married to two ladies who are now exceedingly cross with me. We'll call them Wife #1 and Wife #2. Wife #2 is currently my spymaster with 25 intrigue as her stat and she's miffed I didn't promote her to Wife #1 status. My best plan? Maybe not!But in my defense, wife #1, sweet Parand, has given me 6 children! Wife #2 (though a Genius) only ever gave me one daughter with meh stats. How can I take the position from Parand?! We trust one another! We have a sacred bond!And then wife #2 tells me, "Lol your other wife has plans to kill you dead."Et tu, Parand?! Of my two wives, I didn't expect her to betray me! Rage fills my heart. She will learn to think on her actions in the dungeon!But as I go to imprison her, Parand raises a middle finger and escapes to a court across the map, swearing she will return to kill me. One day. One. Day.Tldr: years after failing to imprison her, my vengeful first wife came out of hiding to murder my one-legged, one-handed marshal with a 23 martial stat in his sleep.
