In the year of our Lord 1170 AD, you've been appointed as the Lord of the Kingdom of Borah after the untimely death of your father. As one of the Lords of the Crusader States, you and the other Lords must keep the land safe from threats, both Saracen and Frank.
You receive word that the town of Ferrum has rebelled from Crusader rule and the lords suspect it is Saladin who is responsible for this due to his claims to the many local emirs that he will bring Jerusalem back under Muslim rule but your spies tell you that this is unlikely given the truce between Nur Al-Din, Saladin's superior and the Crusaders.
You ride to Ferrum, a town famous for its abundance of stone and iron and discover a massive Arabian army and shockingly, European forces holding the town.
You suspect one of the Lords is behind this, aiding Saracen forces to topple the Crusaders.
