    Huh? Are we talking Ragnar Lothbrok here? Because he was dead before 867 (although may be playable in the Charlemagne expansion!) The clue is that all the Vikings marauding around Britain are there to get revenge for his death.

    I've read the first page and I am trying to find a character to play from ToG bookmark. Basically I am looking for one that would later can form a kingdome and convert to christianity. Any suggestions? Right now I am thinking to start like a Polish noble and try to form Poland.

    I just thought to mention the amount of effort put into the dynasties of Georgia and Armenia. I was looking through their dynasty trees, as well as the history of some counties in the area, and it is really interesting.

    One family of a playable count in 867, Count Smbat Arranshahik of Aghvank has its ancestry dating back in game to 50 A.D., with their oldest descendant shown in game being Vonon Arsacid, a Kurdish Zoroastrian.

    Smbat is also related to Ardeshir I, the first Sassanid Emperor.. And, it seems he is also related to the Parthian Emperors, as the Arsacid dynasty was apparently the ruling dynasty of Parthia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parthian_Empire

    Best lineage in the game, I think. I'm considering making Smbat a Kurdish Zoroastrian through the console, and renaming his dynasty to Arsacid.

    Well No-one's mentioned Charlemagne yet. I haven't found much of note, I've been looking at HRE and ERE to try and find the beginnings of the great dynasties. The Bagratonis are still in Armenia and the Premyslid's are in Bohemia too. I understand that Svijpod or whatever it's called has the ancestors of Ragnar Lodbrok too but I haven't looked yet. I must admit I don't know much about European houses but here are a few I did find:

    House Yngling - Count Oysteinn of Oppland (Future Kings of Norway)
    House Babenberger - Count Heinrich of Nassau (Mentioned in the leaderboard for sounding like Babenberg)
    House Billung - Billung of Osnabrock and Amelung of Gottingen (Future Dukes of Saxony)
    House Welf - Count Rothard of Sundgau
    House Chatenois/Lorraine - Count Gerhard of Paris (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Lorraine)

    And last but certainly not least;

    House Capet - Count Anselm of Liege, Count Robert of Bourbon and Count Thurimbert of Loon. Thurimbert is shown as Robert in the character select screen for some reason. This one's the bloke that all the kings are descended from according to the CKII trees. Considering these are the guys that supplanted the karlings as kings of France and became the best medieval dynasty, by paradox's reckoning, theses should be of particular interest.

    I'm sure there's more Europeans I've missed. Couldn't find any Byzantine houses that I knew of but I'm sure I've missed some, haven't even looked at islam yet.

    Any body else had any luck?

    Krum is in the game as a 18 year old Duke in Bulgaria, and already has Omurtag as a one year old son. In my first test run it wasn't too difficult to supplant Telerig and seize control of Bulgaria. Then you can wreak havok on the Byzantines

    Palaio Qutid in Tangier.

    A two-province independent Visigothic Sunni count. I was looking for Visigoths in Iberia but stumbled across this chap the other side of the pillars of Hercules. With west Africa being an interesting mess at this point, you could either side with the Umayyads or build up a new realm in west Africa and use it as a base to take Iberia later on, in a fantastic Qutid homecoming.

    He is the son of Julian, the semi-legendary last Byzantine governor of Ceuta. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julian,_Count_of_Ceuta

    Is anyone interested in taking over this thread? I haven't really played CK2 in a while and I don't have the time to commit to updating it - at the rate and regularity at which I do it, it takes an hour to and hour and a half, which isn't really worth the trouble when trying to also fit in exams, uni applications and other things that are clogging up my available time at the moment. So it's a bit of a task that I'm not sure I can do anymore. I post every time I update, so it'd take someone going back through the thread, probably about ten pages, to find the last time I did, and either starting a new thread or having their posts moved to the front page, then pasting in the existing information and writing up what's been submitted since then (plus maybe a couple of examples per DLC as I haven't been able to do anything beyond the basics on this since Old Gods). Sorry for the constant delays on this, and hopefully there's someone more able to step up to the plate than me.

    I can do it. Though it's probably better if people resubmit their ideas if it's not yet on CK2 wiki.

    This guy is a descendant of both the Sassanids AND the Arsacids. Barring his religion(miaphysite) and geographical position(kingdom of Georgia) this is the dream RP character to restore a Zoroastrian Persia with.

    see post #627 only TWO posts above yours....and there were too many stickied treads at the time anyway.
    A lot of threads got unstickied, too many at first.

    Why they then don't go into the FAQ subforum or in the FAQ stickied thread http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/...ame-Guides-etc i don't know.
    Neither got updated since and including SoA nor did the developer diaries archive. I assume they don't think anyone reads these anyways or that it's not worth the effort. I don't know.

    One idea is to have the child heir educated by a Visigothic noble. Maybe it changes a little with the beta patch, but the surviving Visigothic kingdoms have a short existence. When holy orders appears, survival becomes a little more predictable.
