Oh really? Their monarch was Quenn Elizabeth? I find it interesting since England lifted big shield from all that, since it is Archbishop litle private war. How then they were rulled by Quenn Elizabeth if England by your words didn't even participate in that war?

I know we are at war, you don't have to worry about me, I knew we are at war since Archbishop's first attack on Arlberg.

Well Bella, thats what I was talking to you about terrors of war. It changes people. And accusing me for something I haven't done, and killing my people changed me.

Polish army entered Salzburg. It was expected and they will get encountered soon. Croatian and Burgundian tents were teared down and packed and they started their march toward Polish army. Soon after they have joined with Saxonian army that was marching from Italy to Salzburg.

Saxonian army was led by famous Wikerus von Holstein, ex Saxonian King, and now First Chancellor and Right Hand of Quenn Jessica. Borna already fought with him and was aware of his strenght and excelent skills, but he was also aware of strenght of Saxon Paladins. They were all excelent equiped and trained. Borna was certain of victory.

But there was something to be done, he needed to send a letter to his dear "friend" Archbishop of Canterbury.


QUOTE:
To James, Archbishop of Canterbury

I have a good idea for you. How about you stop to cowardly hide behind lies you are spreading about me and King Rhodry, and to stop cowardly hiding in Bavarian lands. If you are so sure of your cause why do you keep runing and hiding? If you are so sure that you are doing good thing and fulfiling your duty to God himself, why do you keep hiding and running? If God is on your side, howcome you still didn't archieve victory?

You are a coward James hiding behind lies and in lands of countries neutral in this war.

A new direction      28.05.2012 22:05:57 --- 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
After recapturing Steiermark and starting march to Salzburg, Borna was eager to see good mood of his troops. He could also see it on Burgundian troops. No matter of small numbers they all knew that numbers do not win battles. Saxonian heroic resistance to invaders was a living prove to that. Some small amount of man willingly joined the host, but there were only few of them. Most of them wanted to stay at home and protect their families and lands. Borna didn't blame them for that. He understood how they all felt. However, as Saxonian troops were here to defend Croatia, Borna decided that he will be there to defend Saxony.

As they were marching to Salzburg a small column was spoted. Croatian flag was vawering on strong wind that was blowing. As they aproached they stoped, and captain spoken:


"Your Grace. It is good to see you again. You are the person I needed."

Borna knew the captain. He was a common farmer in Salzburg. Then English invasion started, and after Salzburg was liberated he joined the army. As Borna remembered he left him in Schwaben with as much man he could left there as garrison. Borna was surprised to see that he is in charge of captain now.

"It is good to see you too captain. Who placed you in charge of Captain if I may ask and what happened to old one?"

"General Karlo has promoted me Your Grace. Old captain was stroken with strong illnes. He didn't survive. Only a day after we got attacked by larger group of bandits. We managed to repel them and General Karlo has noticed my skill. I fought by his side all the time. Then he decided to promote me."

"I am glad to hear that you are capable of doing good job on battle field. Congratulations Captain. Now you said you need me."

"Yes. I bring you some news. Quenn Elizabeth of England has passed away. Also, her daughter Anne has taken the throne, and also married the French King Vulture."

"Ah that bitch is finally gone. I couldn't stand her stupidity and arrogance. What do you know of this Anne?"

"Nothing Your Grace."

"You told that she married King Vulture?"

"Yes Your Grace. That was a smart move I'll give her that."

"Indeed it was. Thank you captain."

Borna then stoped to write a letter:


QUOTE:
To Vulture, King of France
To Anne, Quenn of England

First of all, my condoloneces for your mother Quenn Anne. She was a great person and I hope that you will one day become like her. No matter of current war, she had my respect.
Second of all, to both of you, congratulations for your marriage. I hope you will enjoy it and have many joys in your marriage.
I wont be able to participate on any celebration since I am very busy with ongoing war of which you both are aware.

With best wishes,

Borna
King of Croatia
Knez of Arlberg and Salzburg

Reversal      25.06.2012 13:36:13 --- 2 Years, 3 Months ago  
...It was a bad situation for invading forces. With Irish forces coming from sea, Scotish and English from south, there was only one thing available to do. Break through them. It looked like evey single soldier from England came to Upplands to finally defeat "those bastard invaders", and with help of Scotish regiment, alltogether it formed a big host. Borna was a bit sceptic. He thought that battle is hardly to win. But advantage of terrain, and thanx to better training and equipment of Saxon Paladins and Finns knights, and in the end his own forces brought glorious victory to invading forces.

Also, Borna recieved news from Croatia. It seemed like James again decided to slaughter inocent people. This time under Danish banner, and finally it was clear that he was never true Christian, but Pagan with big necesarity of spiling blood seeking for whatever reasons only to start war. It didn't come as surprise to Borna. With his country undefended it was only a matter of time when will he come to kill again.


"It seems its time for us to visit Denmark." Borna talked to himself

Encounter with old enemy      15.07.2012 23:52:23 --- 2 Years, 3 Months ago  
After invasion on Britain, and regrouping of armies in Holland and Flandern, it was time for Borna and his army to reinforce Saxon ranks on their south border where great fire was burning. Serbian and Saxon armies were fighting mercilesly for months, and reports from Croatia that Borna recieved were telling that Serbs are sending in their reserves. It seemed like Serbs are getting beaten.

Borna sent messenger to Quenn Jessica asking for suplies. His request was granted and he went to Gelderland with his troops to resuply and take some rest. But that couldn't last for long. Serbian reinforcements arrived, and Serbian main has taken Nuernberg. Hessen was in danger, and Borna went there to reinforce it's deffenses. But Serbs didn't hit it, instead they went to Franken. And then, it was decided to attack them, and chase them off.

French, Saxon, Burgundian and Croatian troops entered Franken. They were severly outnumbered by Serbian troops.
Serbs were waiting for them on the open field. It was a good call, instead of closing up in fort and getting butchered and captured, now atleast they had chance of retreating.

It wasn't easy to deploy troops. Serbs had taken good strategic positions, but in the end troops were well deployed.

Borna and his heavy cavalry went to right flank. Borna sent his light infantry to center. Saxon troops were backbone of an army. Once again Borna had chance to ride with Saxon Paladins. He knew Saxon troops are probably best trained in the world, and there was few things that could stop them on the battlefield. French and Burgundian troops are strong too. Alltogether it created a very good host.

Skirmishing started and it seemed like slight advantage was made.

Borna then led the charge on Serbian troops. His skill with lance has improved and it only needed to train up some small details. He saw his oponent falling to the ground like a bag of potatos.

Then he took his axe searching for new victym. He charged on nearest foe and stroke him with his axe, took a defensive stance and looked around a bit. Battle was no in its full yawn. He saw French troops led by King Black Raven charging in to battle. Saxon Paladins took care of Borna's right flank and infantry was fighting in center. He saw Quenn Jessica nearby fighting few soldiers same time. She looked magnificent.
"Damn she's good" Borna thought to himself while she was knocking someone to the ground. Burgundian troops were in the middle led by King Evian.

Borna charged in dircetion of Quenn Jessica with his bodyguard behind him. She seemed like lady in trouble since her royal banner was easy to recognize, and every Serb wanted to kick her ass. He sliced through Serbian troops like hot knife through butter. And then he saw his mortal nemesis. He was and still is the only reason why Serbian army which has capacity to become one of best in world can't do it. Borna was merciles toward him. He stroke him with his axe but unfortunately was unable to have party with him since there were many other foes that were eagerly awaiting to get over runned and it would be very rude to keep them waiting. As time was passing battle was getting to its end. Borna knocked the last oponent in his sight to the ground and saw Quenn Jessica doing the same. Enemy was running toward Wuertemberg. Borna wasn't surprised to see them running to neutral zone. It is a smart move, but move of a coward...

Battle was won, and Serbs were chased off. And Borna had felling that war is going to last for long long time...

Fortune surrounded by sorrow      28.07.2012 00:02:12 --- 2 Years, 2 Months ago  
After heavy defeat in Franken, Borna went back to Croatia to see situation in his country, and if possible raise a new host. He left his army in hands of young and promissing commander, Grof Domobran and started his journey to Istra. He left General Kristian to supervise Grof Domobran and his actions. General Kristian was hardened veteran who followed Borna to every battle Borna fought, and knows everything about warfare, and man who's skill in battle is unquestionable. He will be a good advisor to young Grof.

Borna went to journey with only dozen of his bodyguards. Every man was necesary on every single front.

On his way he rode through Arlberg and Salzburg. Italian governor in Arlberg was treating his people well, and similar situation was in Salzburg, but there Croatian governor was dealing with any kinds of situations. People seemed to forgot about war, but he knew that fear inside them exists, fear to lose loved ones.

After he finally arrived to Istra, he decided to take a one day rest there. People didn't know that King is coming and they didn't expect him, and they were surprised when they saw him. He marched through city slowly, saying a few words to as many people as he could. Guards were patroling the city walls and streets, in groups of dozen man, market was full of people buying and selling all kinds of products, new recruits were training in training fields, life seemed normal, nothing was unordinary.

Borna went to his royal room, where his bad, in which he didn't sleep for 2 years already, was awaiting for him. As he laid down, sudenlly something came up in his mind. Something that was actually caming up in his mind very often in last time. Scenes of her on battlefield, scenes of her in war tents planing movements and battle deployment, scenes of her on court. She was very often in his minds lately.


"She should know." Borna talked to himself.

He then started to write a letter:



QUOTE:
To Quenn Jessica vom Greifenstein,

Your Majesty,
As you already know I am at the moment in Istra. You know every detail of my visit to my country.
Tomorow early in the morning I will start my way back to Saxony, and I must insint on a meeting. It is of, how shall I say, personal nature.

In hope to see you soon,

Borna
King of Croatia
Knez of Arlberg and Salzburg



His plans changed now, and there was no time for rest...

Re:Trust, honor, chivarly      28.07.2012 22:19:45 --- 2 Years, 2 Months ago  
In Franken the Queen of Finns was sitting about some serious decissions on the war, with a headache she signed the orders and gave it to the messengers.

When she finished she noticed the messenger having sneaked in the tent, one more message she had to take care of, least a good news she hoped since it came from Borna, the King of Croata. Reading the last lines she had to smile.

QUOTE:
Dear Borna,

your servant informed me quite well, and I am happy to hear you found a safe way back home in these troubled times.

About our meeting so I hope we will find on this, there are several "guests" waiting for my audience.

Kind regards
Jessica

Borna was marching north back to Saxony. Reports were saying that huge amounts of enemies finaly got smarter and rallied. Serbs combined with Scotish and English forces. Borna was curious. Will they be smart enough to use their advantage. Well, surely not if derg will lead troops into battle.

On his way back to Saxony he was pushing the army to its limits, mixing heavy march with trainings and mock battles ,battle tacticts, battle deployments, formations, signals used in battle, and especially fighting one alone versus two or three oponents same time and retreating in order no matter what. Light infantry is often used as bait, and it is esential that they don't colapse fast, and if they do, they do it in order, regrouping and with possibility of returning to melee.

Most of soldiers condition was good and they were able to handle it, but some couldn't. Borna sent them to archery range to practice they shooting skill.

He had one more thing to do before going out to supervise his army again.

Worried about the situation Queen Jessica was in her tent, now even her french allies left her back alone because of a mob of children from Brittany. What a mess.

After a short sleepless Night she made one final decission, she was waking up little Alrik early in the morning sending him back to saxon castle, she should have sent him to finnish castle when there was still time doing so, but she had missed, too many messengers flying around with messages about the army moves and the new madness of the cowards James and Anne.

And one messenger wearing the colors of Croatia, another letter from Borna awaits her blue-grey eyes reading.

QUOTE:
Dear Borna,

the reports are correct, the english mad Queen and her lapdogs from Scotland and Denmark have arrived, together with the idiotic son of the idiotic old man have arrived in Rheinland.

We are prepared, and each meter they gonna take from our land they will pay in blood.

Kind regards
Jessica

With arrival of Burgundian and Croatian troops in East Friesland chance for victory has improved atleast a bit. Saxon knights were as always ready for battle. War tents were raised in great order on a big field, and in center was Quenn's tent, his next station. He ordered his troops to take some rest, and went to Quenn's tent.

On his way there Borna saw nothing unusual. Soldiers were preparing for battle, he saw one commander of town militia telling his man how to act against Serbs. Borna reached the tent after some walking around.

As he entered the tent he saw big table full of maps, commanders were standing around the table and in the middle of them she stood explaining them the plan.

Borna stood and listened for some time being unnoticed due to big concentration on battle plan. He slowly walked to the corner of the tent, took a chair and sat looking toward her, straight in her eyes.
