Ah Spike the ledger, second button to the right under the mini map. Page 11 I think, lists all current wars.

Waiting eagerly for my physical copy of the game! Unfortunately didn't get it for this weekend.

Definitely GOTY for me.

Gotta love the satisfaction you get from going from a Count to a Duke to a King.



Was hanging out as a Duke when all of the sudden the Pope was like: "Hey Dawg, I want you to become King of France"

17 years of brutal Civil war where tens of thousands of troops died and I managed to finally win.

That reminds me of how I started as a Danish count in the first CK, pledged loyalty to the Swedish king, waited for him to die and got elected as the new king of Sweden.

"My first decision as your new king is to abolish this obsolete electoral system and make the rulership hereditary like we have it in the civilized kingdoms.

Why are you all glaring me like that?"

I like the Irish start, bring all the independent lords under boot and unite my island as its new king, then set about bringing Scotland and England under boot, with allowances for civil wars and crusaders and you know taking the day off to go for a hunt of plot to kill somebody I don't much like, or find a way to strip one of my nobles of their titles because they are being a pain in my ass and won't simply bow down to my every wish.

For anyone on the fence here is a review, this game has scored highly with nearly every reviewer that has played it including myself. I highly suggest you play the free demo if your on the fence gives you something like 20 years or so which is NOT enough to but atleast gives you a taste.

Clausewitz engine? Appears to be at least.

If so it is extremely moddable, and will be waiting to see what the community does to this.

I just bought it today, will be giving it my full attention tomorrow, when I am less whipped from work, and my brain functions better trying to learn a new game.

I must say, I never thought politics would be fun.

I press a claim on a neighbor, after assassinating the Duke and his son.

We slug it out, I cant siege because he had 5 more defenders than my army. So I pulled back (do levies ever regen?)

Then my wife tries to kill my hier, most likely to help her father who was king of Norway. I have her beaten severely and executed. Then my other son turns up homosexual, which does wonders for reputation. So of course I beat him, but he took it the wrong way and I believe he had alot to do with what happened next.

Finally my Duke dies mysteriously, taking with him 2 of my council members, and 300 of my levies. Oh and it seems the guy I had a claim on has allies... I wonder how long I can hold out with my 123 remaining levies.

I have not lost this much since GWX.

Then again I am still learning. I never played the first Crusader Kings.

I am kinda annoyed you can't play Muslim or Pagan. In any game about the crusades, I always like to turn the tables, and conquer Rome as a Muslim. I feel cheated.

Yep, in fact you can send your marshal to make them regen faster.

I'm pretty sure there is mods out there so you can play as them.

In addition I'm pretty sure its possible for at some point to end up with a Muslim ruler just through normal play, I'm not sure how, however. I do know someone in a steam chat I hang out in had it happen.

If that fails you could always embrace a heresy and take down the pope.

I did find a mod called PMM that lets you play pagans and Muslims. Forgot you had to register the game to see the good forums at PP.

Now to push those filthy Christians out of Iberia!

GOOOOO MOOOOOORS!

Yep Levies regen as soon as you pull them out.

Also its been hinted at SEVERAL times by the lead developer that there will be an expansion that fleshes out the Muslim, Mongol, Pagan cultures and makes them playable.

Just at release they focused on ONE culture and made it bug free for release as Paradox really wanted to beat that "wait until its patched before you buy it" cloud they had over all their games.

Also I have a swedish game in which I am the King and my entire kingdom is Norse... So we praise Odin and crush the christians... however the pope sends crusades against me all the time..

I commend them for wanting to release a fleshed out game, rather than a bunch of fragmented crap.

I read (somewhere) about muslim and pagan family structures being different than Christian ones (they didn't adhere to counties, and duchys, their system was different.) I guess they want to flesh it out. Which is better than releasing broken junk IMHO.

I guess they need something to put into the DLC, but Paradox is usually better than the huge gaming companies in terms of "bang for your buck"

I am biased though, I am a paradox fanboy. They make games that require a brain to play.

Oh boy! As if the homosexuality trait wasn't enough it seems he got the syphillus too...

Why do my sons always have to be so... Yechhhh... unappealing to the other countries...

Can I spawn a normal kid, or is it a product of Norwegian and German brides?

I will try inbreeding next, seems safest.

(disclaimer: I would love my real life son if he was gay, but I hate him in a game based on intrigue and reputation) I am no bigot outside the context of this game.

I've been meaning to put more time into the game, but I've spent most of my gaming time fixing my mod pack for MC, or messing about in it.
