This has been bugging me. What's the disadvantage to sending counsellors out on missions? Other than potential bad events, of course
Freedom in capitalist society always remains about the same as it was in the ancient Greek republics: freedom for the slave-owners
Is it possible to get any of your vassals to approve increased crown authority or feudal levies (both of which are minimal)? All my vassals oppose these, even the ones at 100% approval. Is the only solution to start revoking titles until my votes outnumber those of my vassals?
edited to add: never mind...just played through it and discovered that those listed as opponents aren't necessarily really opposed to the idea. Is there any way of telling before seeking support whether a change will fly? Also, is there any disadvantage (loss of prestige or opinion) if you try to make a change and fail?

1] As Sicily I've been tearing through NA & Iberia, picking up a few kingdom titles.
I have several sons, and while the heir gets everything else, the second son gets a recently conquered kingdom [Mauritania]. The last king changed the succession laws to the eldest son from gavelkind, and yet when my king just died Mauritania went to him through gavelkind. The previous king has the warning saying his brother would get Africa when he died, but that went after a while - any help?
2] Throughout the two decades my king has been reigned, the great tournament has never ended, I get pop-ups every so often telling me a subject has been maimed/killed in the tourney, which is pretty annoying - any way to settle this?
As long as your Vassals opinion of you is in 'the green' you should be able to pass most laws but I guess throwing a Lavish Feast right before the petition. Also you should really try to get the Feudal Levies up to at least Normal since they probably make up a huge part of your total available forces.
"The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism—ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power" - Franklin. D Roosevelt, 1938
What causes a war to be labeled "civil war"? I've seen a few wars of the form "Civil war (blah blah blah) to reduce crown authority."
Furthermore, if I'm a vassal in a kingdom with a war like this going on, is it possible for me to join it?
I united the Kingdom of Ireland, started building up my demesne holdings to get more army and taxes and started forging claims on areas in Wales to expand, when suddenly Scotland declared war on me for a single province in Ulster. I have about 7K soldiers available, they have 10K. They're sitting on my island and I really don't know what to do. Is there something I can do or am I simply screwed? I have only two allies, one's landlocked in France, and the other one... is the King of Scotland, my brother-in-law. He's clearly not going to help. It's not a big loss since it's very lowly developed and not in my demesne, but it kind of screws up my borders and makes for an annoying blemish.
I am playing as Duke of Greater Poland and recently conquered the the Pomeran and then created a duchy out of that and gave it to my son. But after that happened it became an independent realm. Do I have to be the Duke of Pomeran to keep it in my realm? Or do I have to become king of Poland before I can have multiple Duchys in my realm?
Why can't my Norse religion count declare a holy war? how can I make it so he can?
Is it possible to view the Crown Laws of the kingdom that you are a vassal of?
"A man does not have himself killed for a half pence a day, or for a petty distinction. You must speak to the soul in order to electrify him."
As the King of Ireland I pressed my mom's claim on Castille. Unfortunately I didn't realize she would only get one province, and the King of Leon has declared war on her to get his lost crown back. I don't really want to break the truce since my vassals are getting pissed about me being at war all the time. So, if Mom loses the war will she get an inheritable claim on Castile?
The arguments over what the Renaissance was, how it started and developed could run into hundreds of pages here, but I'm willing to bet that the 320 is wrong, and that it should be 328 (Florence). Which province saw the birth of Dante (Florence) and, more importantly, Petrarch (Arezzo).
Just to let you know, I'm now trying to put together a mod to simulate the Renaissance.
To every man upon this earth / Death cometh soon or late. / And how can man die better / Than facing fearful odds, / For the ashes of his fathers / And the temples of his gods...?
Stupid question....How do I join a Crusade? The game is not clear on this, even though I'm sure it is very simple. Also, what determines the "contribution"? Is it just number of troops? How does the game actually determine/know his contribution?
