Pilgrim highway

Post by Mik on Sat Jul 10, 2010 11:39 am

As Palestine owns the holy land pilgrims from Europe visit frequently which Palestine allows. Though now, with bandits awaiting pilgrims as well as the dangerous route the pilgrims must go through. The Caliph has decided that though they are Christian, the pilgrims should have the right to travel safetly.
As such, construction of a highway from Jerusalem all across the routes that the pilgrims would travel. This highway will be constantly patrolled as well as the construction of multiple wells which the pilgrims will be able to receive drink.
This highway will be very expensive, perhaps costing well over 1,000,000 which is why Palestine requests support from Christian nations to create this achievement.
Those that wish for this to be completed soon would need to support the Caliphate, otherwise if Palestine is alone it may take much longer to collect the funds and manpower to complete the task.

La Repubblica de Venezia feels this is a move in the right direction towards better Caliphate-Venetian relations.

The Order will donate manpower to help construct the roads, but cannot spare any funding as of yet.

Lukas Armin believes this act will stabilize relations between Christendom and Islam

Il Ducato di Firenze sees this as a sign that perhaps the bad blood between our nations that came about as a result of the crusades can finally be washed away. At the end of the year, Il Ducato will make a donation.

Palestine thanks you all for your support and does hope that this will aid Muslim-Christian relations as well as make the pilgrims' easier. Though you have given manpower and donations this will still take some years to finish, but it will be done!

Indeed I have it was a saxon/Viking method of execution, quite gruesome and painful

Viking method of torture, mostly.

They'd strap you onto a table/flat surface suspended from the ground.
It was performed by cutting the ribs of the victim by the spine, breaking the ribs so they resembled blood-stained wings, and pulling the lungs out. Salt was sprinkled in the wounds.

Not sure what the salt was for, the victim was already dead, I think, not long anyway. Maybe to add to the pain as they die?

EDIT: I wonder if that's where the expression "spread-eagled" came from?

Probably the most logical idea for their thinking.

Salt serves as a clotting tool to staunch wounds but I doubt they cared about that for their prisoners, or knew of it's ability in those days. Razz

Sigurd Felled the Sons of Hunding
English
Now the blood eagle
With a broad sword
The killer of Sigmund
Carved on the back.
Fewer were more valiant
As the troops dispersed
A chief of people
Who made the raven gold.
Old Norse
Nú er blóðugr örn
breiðum hjörvi
bana Sigmundar
á baki ristinn.
Fár var fremri,
sá er fold rýðr,
hilmis nefi,
ok hugin gladdi.

If you don't know the "Vikings" spoke Old Norse, go read a history book. Or... just go away, come back when you know the closest currently used language to Old Norse.

Palestibe will donate 150,000 a year as well as have 5000 workers (Muslim Militia) to build and guard the highway in progress. With these resources the highway will be done in about 15-20 years. The more donations the faster it shall be completed.

Thanks to a generous donation of 1000 oxen from the Persian Empire the pilgrim highway is well under way to being completed. We have about 13 years to go with the current manpower and donations.

Time remaining 13 years

Due to donations and work progress, the Highway has only one year's worth of work remaining!
