Summer of 1100 A.D....
With the end of The First Crusade, several Frankish States have been established in the Holy Land: The County of Edessa, The Principalty of Antioch, The Kingdom of Jerusalem, among other smaller states.
Your uncle Bohemond, has died and you've claimed the control of Antioch and its lands, thus making you one of the wealthiest men in The Levant.
But there is no time for celebrations! The Sultan of Allepo, has made a pact with the Caliph of Bagdahd, and a whole Arabian army is marching to Jerusalem.
King Baldwin I of Jerusalem, has gathered an army of local Christians and the remaining Crusading Knights and Feudal Men-at-Arms from every corner of the Latin States in order to meet the Infidel in battle.
Meanwhile, and knowing the movement of the Saracens, the King itself has summoned you to his presence, and assigned you to move from Antioch and take Allepo with your army, thus avoiding the Saracens. It is the hope of all Christendom, that if this counter-measure works, the safe of Jerusalem will be assured, forcing the Saracens to ask for terms.
Since The Sultan of Allepo has moved away with his army, it is a golden oportunity to move in and secure the city.
Expect a lot of militia army (archers, slingers, slaves and fire-throwers) and few professional soldiers (chain-mailed swordsmen).
Lead the Sicilian Normans to victory, and may God be with you!
