    Definitely starting as Gotland I did note that there weren't any selectable muslim republics though, I suppose they're out of the game?

    Great! I can't wait to try it! I decided, for the occasion, to read again the amazing work of Frederic C. Lane, Venice, A Maritime Republic wich describe the history and the political turmoil of a medieval republic passing from the early medieval time until the time of revolutions... So Venice will be, after this DLC, my game of CK2 and my first game of EU4.

    I got so many questions aboutthis DLC... like : will patrician be able to govern town or just their palace and trading posts? It could be nice! How would internal politics work? I hope that there will be decision of internal politics between families.

    I've been expecting this one. What attracts me, is the whole management of the typical Merchant Republic, competing with others for wealth and glory...

    Genoa will probably be my first choice.

    Venice sounds the coolest: but I wonder if they will change something so that it stays independent for longer. It seems like the HRE always ends up conquering it. Also, will you be able to play as the other small republics in Italy, like Ancona? Those could be interesting too.

    I don't think that there were Muslim republics of the same kind as Genoa, Pisa, Venice, etc. but I am not totally sure about that.

    Two questions, will people in a multiplayer game be able to pick different familys in the same republic? and what happens if i play as a republican character and my son and heir gets landed a castle by a emperor/king/duke and thereby becomes nobility?

    I get the impression that all of the changes they're making will give the republics a great deal more money and levies at their disposal, so we may not have to worry too much about the Germans taking them over.

    I am pretty sure in the interview from PCM gamer that it sated if he's heir to a feudal title he gets disinherited sort of from the republic, for example I have two sons ones hier to the Holy Roman Empire the other to the republic of Venice can't be both for one its a shame tho

    How so if they're stuck in a sauna drinking punch ?

    Waiting for Paradox to announce or post something during swedish holidays does us all good, it teaches us humbleness....of which i still need more as well.

    (yes, it's always a he - republics are even less gender equal than monarchies)
    Just a quick question, would it be possible to mod that? Diplomacy is far easier when your leader is female because you can use your body as a diplomatic tool more effectively, lol

    If the succession laws for republics are decided like those for Christians/Muslims are, it should be fairly easy to mod this.

    Only works if you are gregarious or attractive... try having a female character with a lisp or hunchback or, godforbid, ugly trait. You'd be wishing for a penis...

    Given that Towns/Lord Mayors/etc are the most insanely op thing remaining in this game, I'm interested to see how broken the republic expansion will be. You can already decimate the games intended economy by simply making all coastal provinces mayors, make any duke over the coastal provinces a mayor, set town taxes to harsh, set town levees to min. Any high diplo leader (which anyone over a duchy size should have by default since it's far better then any other type of leader), can easily mitigate the penalties and you will get 45% of their crazy high taxes. It's quite easy to make 30-50g per month early in the game and it will just keep skyrocketing.

    Combine that with being able to play as a mayor yourself = no government penalty = win.

    I imagine the AI will be pretty good at messing up all your fine work, whenever people lose the position of Doge.

    So far haven't had any issues with succession for Catholic or Muslim I don't suspect Republic will be any different.

    Man this seems to be a fertile ground for a ancient roman republic mod especially with the infighting between patrician families as well as the oligarch nature of the republics
