Anjou has fallen, meaning I've got 1/2 of my Objectives down. Maine is next. Burgundy has finally put down Bar who didn't even manage to pull in any allies. I blame Burgundy's alliance with Bohemia but between that and Naples being a bit of a loner, it's a rather boring opening, but then I've had worse and it at least gives me a nice starting position. A pretender has popped up in Burgundy, and a surprisingly large one at that [8000 men, 2000 more than I have in my whole army] but they have a large army stack  fresh from the fight that should run down the rebels quite handily. France meanwhile has managed to beat the English out of Normandy. About 8000 English were caught by the looks of it, maybe more since I don't know when it started. I can't imagine they're doing much better in the south either. While it's a tempting thought to join in on England's side, I don't have the Casus Belli for it which means Burgundy would probably ignore me and neither England or Portugal are strong enough to give me a lot of protection, nor would they necessarily be keen to offer alliances to me during a war of aggression. Unless things change radically, I'm up against the big old French blob and stuck sucking up to the English one so no Irish wars for the foreseeable future, which is worrying since I suspect they have Conquer Ireland for their initial mission.
