On the other hand, some Islamic rulers never married but went with concubines all the way, like the latter (VERY decadent) Umayyads. I'm not sure they lost any prestige over lack of wives.
Shut up and take my money.
Works in Progress for CK2:
The Matter of Britain, an Arthurian overhaul for Crusader Kings II.
Expansion #1: Lord of the Manor - Manage Your Demesne ("The Republic" DLC required)
Expansion #2: Courts and Titles - Knighthood, Chivalry, and All That (A "Legacy of Rome" add-on)
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." .
looks like it will be very challenging for me, as I has a house rule of not using assassination (I just consider it a cheesy mechanic), interesting times ahead!
no decences system is moer basic on ruler get right rule from god, and act out will of god any one can take it.
I can barely wait for the 1.6 patch! I'm also very interested in the minor changes like the possibility of "added missing characters" and minor tweaks to the existing dynasties. The new region in the duchy of Spoleto is also quite nice a feature if only a minor minor minor addition to Italy and the pope. Although a majority is for the Muslim world, which is great, I have my hopes up for some new gaming experience on the European continent.
"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
I've just finished watching the E3 stream, and Doomdark said 'why not?' to a question on expanding the map further eastward in a later patch. That'd be pretty good.
