A letter to the Austrian Court

A letter from Istanbul...

To their florivorios Majesties,

Greetings in the name of Peace! To her fragrentness blossom Maria Theresa I send the greetings of my master Mustapha Sultan of the East and master of all!

I write to ask that an ambassador be appointed and sent forthwith to His Excellency's Palace in Istanbul that relations may be made known regarding the handing over of what land is rightly ours since 1739! We have waited long and desire only peace and land that is our by Laws divine and human!

We wish peace and justice to flow between our lands and the Eastern territories of the Austrian Empire to be ours once more . Failure to do so may regretfully mean the sounding of the shrill flute of conquest!


Evidya Secretary to the Vizier- blessed be his name for ever!

Yet even more reason to hold that council of War!

Does anyone have Ottoman figures if we need them at any time in the future for a proxy battle - 16th/17th century ones could easily be used!

Frankszonia and the Hurtshog regret that they may be unable to come quickly to the assistance of the Empress.
First of all, the onerous Gallian occupation exhausts our resources for an unpopular war, causing instability within our own house.
Secondarily, the odoriferous operations of Limburger, Munster, Gouda, and Edam under the baleful influence of Roquefort curdle our outlands.
Thirdly, the musty influence of a Weiner Lard in Hesse Homburg has generated another situation in which our integrity is directy threatened.
However, Graf Ignatz von Noble is considering raising a Freikorps later in the season, and we would be glad to offer our offices in obtaining the assistance of the Ig Noble brigade for you.

Yes I have many different ones, they are all unpainted lead though... the Ottoman direction in my game plans was not to take to the fields of Mars until the 2010-12 time frame.
