*962 AD - Europe, a continent at war. The year is 962 and Germany, after have been split up into city-states rather than a unified empire, were a minor power in central Europe. Eternal struggle between these quarrelling nations were not to be stopped. Bavaria, the strongest city-state in Germany, have been in war whit Bohemia for 2 years now, Bohemia was a nation to behold, the capital Prague was knowed for its many places of learning and the military. But alas, it was not to endure, the enemy from the south was creeping closer for every day and the Bohemian Knights could not whit stand the many invasions, so Bohemia was slowly losing the war. The Bavarian king, Jacob, was not happy whit the slow progress, so he asked the Swabian king for help, but as foolish the king was, he turned down this surggestion.
King Jacob was furious whit the respond and said that if Swabia didn’t help Bavaria againts Bohemia, he would declare war! Still, the Swabian king said no. King Jacob was angry that his ally had turned him down, so he sent message that if no further contact was made whit him from Swabia, he would declare war.
Now, two days after the discussion whit the Swabian king Otto, no document whit an excuse and a tribute from Swabia to Bavaria. So now the war-loving nation of Bavaria had 2 enemies. And it is here our tale begins...
After the taking of Augsburg by the Bavarians, king Otto sought only peace whit king Jacob, but alas, it was too late. King Jacob was knowed for his love for war, and he saw no problem waging war whit to nations at the same time. The furture for Swabia looked grim.*
