    While I'm not totally again decadance, I'd rather have seen it worked into some sort of Mamluk system than the ruler's family. Nothing I have read about the medieval Near East suggests that a ruler was socially expected to have 4 wives but the slave soldiers, whether the Sudanese of the Fatimids and Zirids or the Turkish/Circassian Mamluk fighters were pretty vital to Middle Eastern politics at this point. I'm not quite sure how I'd work it and I probably won't bother since it has no chance of going in at this point, but I'd rather like some nod to their role, even if it is just some 'mercenary' companies you can call up.


    Still sounds like fun though.

    Any word about...

    - mercenaries for Abyssinia/Ethiopia/Monophysites?
    - new cultural buildings for Ethiopians?

    wouldn't be to surprised if Ethiopians got Camel Riders, although i'm not sure if they actually used Camels ... its that or going oddball and giving them the the longbow range that Saxony have (with a rename) due to the Makuria (in Nubia ... close enough, since they ingame is Ethiopians as well) being famous for their archers, which was one of the primary reasons Islam didn't spead south OTL and the Caliphs accepted the Baqt argeement (which aren't working ingame)

    I feel like there needs to be substantial modifiers put on the empires, because previous posters are right. If someone declares independence, the rest of the realm just squashes them; the HRE, ERE, and (in my opinion) France are just too stable. Throughout the medieval and early modern period, France was a fractured state which had a tough time acting as one body to the English and in its own affairs; just look at the beginning of the EU3 map. At least, that's how I always learned it. And bringing the full force of the HRE on its own upstarts practically never happened. Crown authority helps actualize these things, but in the end, a kagillion soldiers still appear from the far corners of the empire to crush upstarts... which isn't very realistic. As for the ERE, I honestly don't know how free revocation will affect gameplay. However, I do know that it was a very powerful state in the Middle Ages and as I've played ... I've seen the state decline in the face of Muslims quite fairly. Never played it myself though....

    I would disagree with the France comment, I've seen it fracture frequently. Between William stealing Normandy, the van Vlaanderens revolting frequently, Robert the Old and his sons launching wars for the throne, and often Aquitaine and Toulouse getting uppity, I rarely see it unified. When England manages to stay strong and start quarreling with them, they're pretty much doomed.
