The manual mentions achievements. Will there be achievements on CK2? It works quite well with paradox games, but paradox connect is stalled it seems.
Thanks, nice to have before the big game day..
In the Spanish version, in page 5, talking about other Paradox games, it talks about Victoria III. Yay!

Thank you. It gives me something to read until the release!
IMHO CB OP. BTW PU WAD? FWIW. HTH. AFAIK YMMV. OMG WTF BBQ!

A very nice manual, I especially liked the last line! One thing I would have wanted to be in though is precisely what is affected by the character attributes (especially the ruler's attributes, advisors are pretty obvious since you can see how their mission efficiency differs depending on their attribute). I understand why the modifiers for traits aren't in since that might be subject to balancing, but I wouldn't guess, for instance, ruler stewardship is?

This was written by Alfred Packer? Excellent.
this does not explain any of the nuts and bolts of the game, almost no numbers at all to be found. I assume this was intended. I guess the tooltips will be enough, but I definitely see the need for a crusader kings 2 wiki which breaks down things like the effect of the learning stat on tech advancement and what moral authority actually does.
argh! i cannot download the pdf! i get to around 65% then adobe reader auto opens and says "there is an error with the file, data could not be saved". i wanna look at the manual now!

Anyone know how to make people pass your laws?? WHat makes people vote for them?
I don't really understand all the praise the manual is getting. It's actually quite bad manual. It only tells very basic stuff and doesn't go any deeper in the game mechanics. You learned more from the tooltips in game. I really didn't learn anything new when I read it through.
But I don't mean to sound too harsh. It's nice to see a manual with more than five pages, it's not so common anymore and I am sure that there will be a CKII-wiki page with more than enough information. Really looking forward to the release day!
