Msg event.pngAthens reclaimed!


For centuries Athens was a center of Byzantine culture and art, until it was lost to the Latins in the Fourth Crusade. More recently, the city has been the capital of an independent duchy ruled by various western families. That time is at an end, however, and for the first time since 1204 Athens is part of the Byzantine Empire again.

Msg event.pngRome Orthodoxy restored!


The people of Rome once again follow the Orthodox faith, the few die-hard Papists that remain are in hiding. While this certainly doesn't end the Great Schism, if anything it deepens it, it certainly gives the Eastern Orthodox Church an advantage the eternal battle for religious authority.

Msg event.pngSack and destruction of Venice


Eager to avenge the legendary betrayal of the crusaders Byzantine troops spared no-one as they descended upon the once-great city of Venice. The mission of the imperial generals has always been clear, all patrician families must be stripped of their property and honors, and the treasures that were once stolen from the city of the worlds desire must be returned.

As the time came for the descent of Byzantine armies upon the City of Water, things turned more hideous than anyone could have imagined. A lifetime of warfare does not foster kindness in anyone and with commanders eager to see the city burn, byzantine soldiers embarked on a several days long campaign of devastation and plunder of churches, palaces and even the Venetian arsenal.
