CtW GuideEdit

The Byzantine campaign overall has an even greater challenge than the Early Campaign, and could well be the toughest so far. Not only are your resources near to depletion, you also are surrounded by enemies: the Serbians menace Greece; Crete is now Venetian and the Turks are ensconced in Cappadocia. Your only territories are Bosporus (your capital) and Trebizond in the Pontic region, and tribute is tight.

Boxed up where you are, the first enemy you should destroy are the Bulgars. Because of the collapse of their kingdom, Thrace is now in a political mess and you should send your armies to attack them right away. Once the Bulgars are back under your control, you should have 2 armies, and may need to consider attacking Krim across the Black Sea — the Genoese based in Caffa in may allow you a chance at destroying the Mongols and seizing Krim, giving you a third army which can then be used to overrun more of the Mongols in the region or otherwise consolidate your power in Europe.

Although your capital on the Bosporus is somewhat impregnable, it isn't invincible. Your best bet is to try to engage in diplomacy to keep enemies from attacking you. The largest problem you may face at present are the Serbs and the Hungarians who rule small empires in the region; another issue would be the continued existence of the Turks. Most troubling is that neither any of them are inclined to accept alliance offers from you.

Alternatively, it might be better to destroy the Turks early on and to gain control of all of Anatolia, even if it means sacrificing any chance of a breakout into the Black Sea via Thrace. Try to seek out any wars that your Catalan allies may have so that you can benefit from the use of their forces in the region, if you choose to use military force against your neighbours.
