Please note the style guidelines.
So if you want to form the Sultanate of Rum first, go to war with Ramazan if they are allies with Candar, vassalize candar annex them after ten years. Ally with Aq Qoyunlu (Break your alliance after the war with Dulkadir), They may have a war against Dulkadir. Dulkadirs only ally maybe Hisn Kayfa, If there Dulkadir's ally vassalize them. After that war, take a couple of loans for from infantry. Use this time to get ready for war. Break the alliance and Give one to the Mamluks and go to war with Aq Qoyunlu, If you win the war annex the needed territories to form [Rum]. Go after Trebizond and the many hordes that are small. After all that time you delcare war on the Ottomans, There maybe a couple of wars to take the Ottomans out.You'll have to annex them all the way first to form Rum. If you did annex the Ottomans, Try to convert Rum into Orthodox Christianity or Coptic Christianity.
