End of the 16th century saw some quick growth, but I've stalled since then. I have no way to take that Georgia province in Dulkadir unless the Russians won't help them, and I dunno when that'll be. Mamluks are a pain in the ass but beatable; main problem is I take too much AE from their provinces.
Looking into Europe, I could probably push into Croatia and maybe even Austria fairly easily, but the whole of Italy that is controlled by the Papal State is a brick wall. Not only does the Papal State have some nice troops, a navy that would beat mine, and an army that could probably put up a decent fight against mine numbers-wise, but they are allied to France AND Spain and I damn well cannot take them both on.
Gonna have to see where the 17th takes me. Ideally I end it with full control of Egypt and about half of Italy, but we'll see. I really want to get the Theme System but I'm missing that one province controlled by Georgia and then Aq Qoyunlu has the other one I'm missing.
Ask me for the clan test!
