I am in jail, and my dad was in jail. Well, let me tell the whole story.
I started as King Malcolm of Scotland, with the extended time mod for the demo. Things were going good for a while, but then I decided to betroth one of my sons to the female heir to the northern duchy, Moray. She was the sister of the current duke, and he was unmarried. He wasn't old though, I don't know why I was thinking he wouldn't have any more children. But, he did. He had three sons. I really wanted that duchy though, so I tried assassinating his son. The first one died fine, but on the second, my assassin was found out. So, the duke hated me. He declared war to depose me. I hired some mercenaries, and was beating him, when I discovered my other duke was plotting to take my title. I only had a 50% chance of imprisoning him, so I couldn't do anything. He eventually rebelled, I went bankrupt, and he became the new king.
Now I was the earl of Gowrie, the only county I owned, my son was another earl. We started a plot to get my king title back. I tried to get the duke of Moray into it, but he wouldn't join. I eventually rebelled, while he was dealing with a rebellion, probably another in the north. I lost, and me and my son were imprisoned. I died 12 years later, having been in the oubolette or whatever its called for at least 10 of them. I was now my son, Duncan, also in jail. I am still him, 6 years later. So I have had my character in jail for 19 years, and this one will probably live for another 5 years at least, he is 40. I will loose my claim to Scotland if I don't press it, and I cant declare war from jail. I cant ransom myself, the current king wont accept it since I have a claim to his title. What should I do? I could just wait, since I arranged succession so my son gets both counties and the duchy I have, just the ducal title of the counties. He also is marrying someone with a claim to Scotland, one of the princesses. But that's boring, so is there any way to get out of jail?
