  • On 27 November 1095 Pope Urban delivered a sermon, rallying the people to wage war against the infidels under the banner of the Catholic church.
  • Attack the Muslims and seize our Holy Lands! God Rules it! Also money and land are cool.
  • So they marched to a bunch of places, and there were a lot of them, think this, but like 100,000 times more (because I'm lazy and don't want to make 800,000 knights)
  • We're off to seize the city! The wonderful city of God!
  • Shut up, Jeremiah! No one likes your singing!
  • When they reached the city of Nicea, they had to siege it for 6 weeks, in order to find a way in.
  • Is anyone else bored?
  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but this wasn't part of the plan right guys?
