    I totally called it a week ago that you were going to announce this. Very very happy! Though Blondie needs a beard, in my opinion.

    We had some thoughts on the cover and how to make it work:

    1) Improve the current draft: Add an angry beard and a severed flying head.
    2) A hologram showing crusaders or Muslims (depending on the view point) massacring, pillaging and raping a town.
    3) Or if additional sales are wanted, make it look like it's a game about Medieval vampire intrigue. The teen girl market sales will increase thousandfold.

    I still love Crusader Kings but have always wished for fixes for that save reload moral goes to zero effect. Hopefully a fix for the end of the month lag as it clears out all those dead people? Hopefully better bad boy ideas as to keep the human player from easily exploiting all those pagans in the east and overtaking the world as a Duke. Hopefully a STRONG AI.

    If anything Johan keep this in mind as the difficulty goes up have the loot that is gained by taking a province go DOWN this time. When I played on Very Hard I would get many thousands of (currency in the game) when i got a peace agreement. I'd like to play with a higher difficulty without getting so much in return when I win a province please??

    Anyways great to know and I finally again anxiously await a Paradox game.

    "Desdichado"? Somone is reading Ivanhoe, from Walter Scott?
    Nothing better for a medieval revival!

    And now for the Military Orders of Reconquista!!!

    Authority, when first detecting chaos at its heels, will entertain the vilest schemes to save its orderly facade. But always order without justice, without love or liberty, which cannot long postpone their world's descent into pandemonium.

    True, he looks good, but not tough enough. The best medieval themed concept art can be found in M&B Warband and I'd really like to see something similar here
    "'Religious faith. Belief in daemons, belief in spirits, belief in an afterlife and all the other trappings of a preternatural existence, simply existed to make us all more comfortable and content in the face of a measureless cosmos. They were sops, bolsters for the soul, crutches for the intellect, prayers and lucky charms to help us through the darkness. But we have witnessed the cosmos now, my friends. We have passed amongst it. We have learned and understood the fabric of reality. We have seen the stars from behind, and found they have no clockwork mechanisms, no golden chariots carrying them abroad. We have realized there is no need for god, or any gods, and by extension no use any longer for daemons or devils or spirits."

    I have to agree, that beardless teen idol blodie just dosent cut it for me

    I REALLY hope the box art will get an overhaul, more into art and blood and grimmness and mediveality... this looks like right out of a disney movie

    Neverthless CK 2 is great news and i will buy it no matter what cover it has as long as the game itself delivers, and i have no doubt that it will =)

    The boxart's a fine draft. Not everybody in the middle ages was a hunchbacked, one-eyed leper with no teeth.

    "Desdichado" was Ivanhoe himself. The Black Knight had no device on his shield during the tournament, and a bar and padlock when attacking the castle.

    *Magdat does happy-dance!*

    I just clicked at the first forum cause that is the Vicky II forum and then I see Crusader kings, I think: Huh? Damn wrong forum. Then I see II, my brain goes: Huh? Then my face goes:

    This stinks! Oh my gawd!

    I was hoping that we would be able to take our conquered Earth, develop advanced technology, and go to battle against other planets in an effort to take over the universe in an experience much like star wars.

    Oh well, I guess I'll have to settle for Crusader Kings II.

    ...

    ...

    ...

    Nah I'm just kidding! This is great news! I can't wait for this game!
