    When the first explorers were despatched to the north, they probably didn't expect to find lederhosen and sauerkraut there.

    These Germans also seem to prefer the local pagan rites to Catholic mass.

    It's clear it's not the demo; no one's overexpanded.

    What I meant was, in the demo, the bankrupcy=>mercenary takeover was quite common and commented on a lot. In the full game, it seems much less common, despite mercenaries being more expensive. My theory for this is that in the demo, people were so impatient they tended to overextend. In the full game, people aren't trying to conquer all of Europe in 20 years, and so are playing more conservatively.

    This is probably one of the most bizzare games I have seen yet. I started in 1080 and unlike all my other games the Byzantines never managed to recover, they just got hammered by the Sultanate of Rum, Normans in Sicily, and civil wars at home. The Komnenoi took power, but were hampered by constant civil wars eventually after three empeors they were overthrown by these Norman vassals House Duergont who happened to be Cathari, then the Empire completely imploded now the Duergnot Emperors hold court on Chios, and barely maintain control of Crimea and Athens. The Orthodox Duke of the Aegean Islands rose up in civil war and currently holds Constantinople and some assorted territory, the muslims control the rest. Too bad my claim on the Byzantine throne expired a generation ago otherwise I would totallyclaim the throne and become the Byzantine Emperor of Italy, I would throw the pope out and claim Rome too! (actually this is my new goal)



    Also the Muslims have just been destroying everyone while the HRE has captured North Africa Maurentia has sacked Al Andalus and moved into France, I think this is because the HRE has been in turmoil and civil wars this entire game, the Salinas lost control to the Von Luxembourgers and of course my constant meddling.



    Also of note I am so happy to have actually broken off from the HRE it was the hardest fight I have had so far, even in the middle of a civil war it took 50 years of stockpiling gold for mercenaries beefing up my conscription laws, and caused the deaths of pretty much every mercenary in the western hemisphere along with at least 100,000 levy troops over a 8 year period.

    This happens when an enemy of the crusade target (such as a rebel) takes only the castle before the crusaders arrive. So when the crusaders come in, usually only having two or three provinces that they can really take, they take the barons and cities, peace out, and end up with this. In the second one, you can see that some crusaders took all the lower titles, probably 100 or 200 years prior, only for the HRE to come in later and actually take the province. For a long, long time, the province was a Muslim Bejan province with a bunch of Croatian fiefs. The fiefs would even get their levies raised, and a few hundred troops would vanish into the fog in the east. I wonder where they were going?

    It used to be Leon-Castille-Wales (Jimena dynasty, removed from Spain by 200 years), but somehow it got split up, and now the two sides morph into different shapes every few years. Wales used to be one province a few years ago. Then it owned all the titles. Now it's split again.

    So I went to war with the Count of Northumberland, which promised to be a quick and easy war, since I controlled all the rest of England and all of Wales. I wipe out their armies and siege their holdings, but what's this?



    Even after occupying all holdings in the county, I'm only at 56% war score. That's a bit odd, since he doesn't have any other titles than that single county. After a little bit of digging though, I find this:



    Ahh! He has vassals. Wait. He has what vassals?



    Yes, the Count of Cumberland has vassals of a city and a bishopric in the holy land. In otherwise-muslim territory. If that makes any sense to you, then I want to know how, because this makes no sense to me.

    Instead of mounting a crusade against Cumberland, I decided to let him come to me. Occasionally, a small force of one or two hundred soldiers would arrive on my shores and quickly get anihilated. And then, eventually:

    He probably inherited that county. There's no reason Christians can't intermarry with Muslims, after all.

    That doesn't say anything. the screenshot says Shiite is the dominant religion in Jerusalem (not surprising, since it is controlled by Muslim since the beginning). The actual religion of a person is shown in the character screen.

    It also says, that the dominant culture in the province is German; hence, the majority are probably German Shiites.

    Meet my weirdest ruler ever so far:



    Not only is he fathering a child at ancient age (78) with his 42 year old bride...he also does it being a homosexual man that fathered a bunch of children after he already had 2 male heirs in place..talking about fulfilling your duty...

    I also got a message once he was fancying his son...what a weirdo...

    Still miss him now..he died at the age of 79 after officially loosing his mind within days...and his heir is the only heretic on my whole court...looks like ruler wise this could be an interesting game..the joys of seniority succesion...

    Ohh BTW his last 3 children were all born when he was already beyond 70.

    considering that's a bishopric, I kind of doubt it. I imagine he went on a crusade, and the first two were already occupied, so he just started occupying that (and eventually peaced out for it). How the rest of the territory was lost back to muslims but his wasn't I don't know...

    Probably what happened is that a Crusade was mounted against Ascalon at a time that those territories were occupied by either other Muslims, so that when the Crusaders won, those lands weren't included in the new Crusader states. Then your earl declared a Holy War on whatever faction held that city and bishopric i.e. not the same as the faction with the county.

    Considering that I have seen a Duchy of Pisa in northern Germany, a Byzantium with its capital on the Caspian shore, and other madness in this same game, this isn't really all that strange, but I found this kinda funny.

    Then the chronological order is wrong. It'd be the Shiite Arabic decided to adopt the German culture instead of the Catholic Germans adopting the Shiite religion.
