I thought I'd go for a challenge this time and start as William de Warenne, 1st Earl (Count) of Surrey. And blimey is it hard. After 20 years I have one excellent son who I am grooming for Court Chaplain, and five daughters who I've yet to marry off. However, I'm struggling to really see where I can go from here.
So does anyone have any tips for starting as a Count in a kingdom where you cant attack fellow vassals?
