|Made with version:
Saladin Conquest----1, Killing Spree
On September 29 1181, Saladin crossed the Jordan River to attack Beisan which was found to be empty. The next day his forces sacked and burned the town and moved westwards. They intercepted Crusader reinforcements from Karak and Shaubak along the Nablus road and took a number of prisoners. Meanwhile, the main Crusader force under Guy of Lusignan moved from Sepphoris to al-Fula. Saladin sent out 500 skirmishers to harass their forces and he himself marched to Ain Jalut. When the Crusader forces reckoned to be the largest the kingdom ever produced from its own resources, but still outmatched by the Muslimsa advanced, the Ayyubids unexpectedly moved down the stream of Ain Jalut. After a few Ayyubid raidsers including attacks on Zirin, Forbelet, and Mount Tabor the Crusaders still were not tempted to attack their main force, and Saladin led his men back across the river once provisions and supplies ran low.Your mission is to clear the path to the castle Dalpien , by laying siege to Kobaper.
Saladin Conquest----2, Siege of Dalpien
However, Crusader counter-attacks provoked further responses by Saladin. Raynald of Chatillon, in particular, harassed Muslim trading and pilgrimage routes with a fleet on the Red Sea, a water route that Saladin needed to keep open. In response, Saladin built a fleet of 30 galleys to attack Beirut in 1182. Raynald threatened to attack the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. In retaliation, Saladin twice besieged Dalpien, Raynald's fortress in Oultrejordain.
Saladin Conquest----3,Crusaders Revenge
After the siege of Dalpien , Saladin let the castle in the control of Emir Omar.Following the Succes of his Dalpien siege, Saladin temporarily turned his attention back to another long-term project and resumed attacks on the territory of Izz ad-Dahn , around Mosul, which he had begun with some success in 1185. However, since then, Maslied had allied himself with the powerful governor of Azerbaijan and Jibal, who in 1185 began moving his troops across the Karak castle and he besieged the castle. The atack was a succes , but he heard bad news : Alexander || of Spain has build a army of Crusaders to exterminate Saladin for good. You must rebuild the castle and be ready for the atacks.
Saladin Conquest----4,Two Unruly Lords
Saladin attempted to gain the Caliph and Nasir support against two Crusaders lords by sending him a letter requesting a document that would give him legal justification for taking over Mosul and its territories. Saladin aimed to persuade the caliph claiming that while he conquered Egypt and Yemen under the flag of the Abbasids, the Zengids of Mosul openly supported the Seljuks (rivals of the caliphate) and only came to the caliph when in need. Saladin stressed that all this would happen by the will of God and instead of asking for financial or military support from the caliph, he would capture and give the caliph the territories of Tikrit, Daquq, Khuzestan, Kish Island, and Oman.Your mission is to clear the way to Jerusalem by killing those unruly lords.
Saladin Conquest----5, The Fall of Jerusalem
Saladin had captured almost every Crusader city. The last one was Jerusalem.Before the siege, Saladin had offered generous terms of surrender, which were rejected.You must control Saladin troops and take control of Jerusalem.
