what do i have to do in order for a claimant to consider me able to press claims? does it have to do with military might and/or proximity to the land?
Is it ever possible to invite a claimant to court by simply having them like me a lot with gold bribes n shit?
Which probably means you can't do much
@pplaza, if you can;t press their claims you are probably the one with the titles, at least the is what happened in my games. And yes, you can invite people if they like you enough and hate their own liege.
Can anyone help me figure out what will happen in the following situation:
I am the Duke of Sicily and Calabria. I have Gavelkind succession.
My wife is the Doux of Adrianapolis and Vidin. She has Gavelkind succession. The ERE has High Crown Authority.
We have 2 sons.
If I understand things correctly, the Crown Authority of the ERE means that my sons will not be able to inherit duchies inside of it if this would mean the title passing to a foreigner. So, If my wife dies first, then my sons split up her duchies, and later can inherit my titles. But if I die first, then they will no longer be eligible to inherit from her? Or is it ok if they are just independent Dukes?
What if I form the Kingdom of Sicily? In that case, if I die first, I think my heir as King is excluded from inheriting inside the ERE? But would his younger brother (now a Duke in Sicily) be eligible to get all my wife's lands?
What if I change to primogeniture? Then if I die, 1st son gets all my titles. Does that make 2nd son eligible for her titles?
I have a question about my first proper game, which has finished somewhat prematurely. I had a fun reign as Duke of Brittany for 100+ years. I lost the title for a while, but after some fighting I managed to regain it. I then swore fealty to France and was just about to expand my territory into Mortain. I was in the rather pleasant situation of owning three of the counties of Brittany, while my son and heir owned the other three. As the law was set to primogeniture, I assumed he would inherit my three counties and the Duchy of Brittany when I died. But when I did die the game ended. I have a save game so if someone has more questions I can go back and check more details.
What I want to know is, why didn't my son inherit my titles? It was quite frustrating to end the game just as things were starting to go well.

Can you be king of 2 countries without getting penalties and what is the max of duchies you can have?
The thing with maximum amount of duchies is that you get a -10 relations with your vassals if you have more than 2 duchies (-10 for every duchy, so its -20 for 2, and so on) IF you are a king, but there is no limit for amount of duchies, just the penalty for each.
Is there a way to "watch" a character, so you get informed when he/she comes of age? I'm tired of my relatives' having only daughters, and then letting them have regular marriages. And since it seems impossible to do matrilineal betrothals, I need to know as soon as come of age.
is the stuttering borders issue already fixed? If not then when will it be fixed?
