I went right from the start into the Swadian faction, they have treated me well and it has been a good 80 days. At about Day 10, the Rhodoks declared war on us, and then shortly later the Nords declared war on us. We were getting spanked by them, until we finally got a treaty with both of them. We had peace for about 30-40 days. During that peace time I was wife-hunting, I had my eyes on about 3 women, but all of there relatives hated me. I finally found Lady Nelda, daughter of Count Clargus (who I was in great standing with), Nelda was easy to impress and shortly after, we were married. The Khergits declared war on us shortly after, we have been slamming them to the ground, we have all of their main cities, except for Tulga. I personally took Narra, and it is now my own, with about a 140 garrison in it, I have about 80 men that I usually go out campaigning with though.
On a side not, the Vaegirs are getting stomped by the Nords.
I fear the Sarrinids and the Rhodoks are growing too much in strength and prosperity in their peace time.
I plan to keep moving up in the Kingdom of Swadia. I will depart from them if they either start getting owned, or if I get bored with them.
Things seem to be going good in this campaign.
