"In 1098, Baldwin of Boulogne left the main Crusading army, which was travelling south towards Antioch and Jerusalem. He went first south into Cilicia, then east to Edessa, where he convinced its lord, Thoros, to adopt him as son and heir."

This part is simulated by Armenian bribery rule. German faction bribed Thoros of Edessa.

Then German player established a LOC to Edessa using crusader and Ermenian troops.
And using treachery card took Edessa from Armenian garnison.

I never played the game. I am just trying to understand the mechanics. So is this interpretation of the rules and chain of events correct?
