Main article: Andalusian missions

With Golden Century.png Golden Century Andalusia has a unique set of missions.



Msg event.pngThe Emirate of Sicily

In ages past, the Emirate of Sicily was a stalwart bastion of our faith; holding strong until the crusaders conquered the island in 1087.

Now that we are in possession of this coveted land, we have the choice of once again reinstalling a Taifa state, to act as a bulwark against the warlike Pope, and his adherents.

Msg event.pngScholarly Sentiment

The fertile land of the Delta lies in our hands, prompting a resurgence in economy, culture, and scholarly pursuit. The latter has provided quite an edifying discovery - many are emerging who would see us embrace the Ismaili ideals of the long-dead Fatimids, having come upon various ancient scrolls and documents in Nilic libraries, which now circulate through our nation's elite.

We should issue proclamation swiftly, on how to deal with this swiftly spreading school of thought.
