The Storsvenska Riket had grown strong after conquering most of northern Europe, and wanted even more land down south. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire the region was relatively disorganized, but when hes armies marched south, he found the supposed "weak" target of the Otoman Empire missing, and in its place, the newly formed Kingdome of Temeria. As the leader of the Storsvenska Riket, Lusk's motto was "BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!", a confrontation between the two empires was inevitable, and Lusk's viking armies attacked.
Lusk tried a frontal assault on Constantinople, the Temerian capital. But the assault failed, as even though the Temerians were largely outnumbered, they had superior equipment, strategy and held an almost inpenetrable stronghold. After carefully thinking over the situation and hearing his apprentice Radam's advice, Lusk decided that since the Temerian "COWARDS AND FOOLS HIDE IN A METAL BOX!" of a city, the best solution was to seek peace.
The peace treatyEdit
Niko met with Lusk and Radam on a hill outside the city. Impressed with each other's strength, both parts decided to sign an treaty that granted complete trading rights between the two, and a peace that should last for as long as the leaders breathed. Niko also demanded rights to conquer the whole Mediterranean area, to which Lusk complied. The hill on which the peace treaty was signed was named "Hill of unity". Afterwards a great celebration was held, and the leaders feasted and sang songs of glory.
It's been rumored that a mysterious man with a big mustache overlooked the feast, and smiled. I has also been speculated that this event, where two great nations chose peace instead of slaughter, is what inspired Stalin to reveal himself and his great plan to Lusk and Niko during the 20th century.
Free to conquer and unite the people of the south, Niko expaned his Empire and unified the Mediterranean area. Lusk went home and finished off the warring warlords in the north and west, unifying northern Europe into an enormous Svea Rike.
The peace between the two enabled the Swedish puppet king Karl the 12th to seek shelter in Temeria when he fled south from a failed conquest against the evil Tsar Peter during the 18th century.
