The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
The AI really should execute imprisoned claimants, but I remained intrigued nonetheless.
Your British Isles sure are interesting, East Anglia in northern Scotland and Kent in Connacht.
Never a dull moment for the Anscarids! It's one of the disadvantages of setting up family on foreign thrones; they always get embroiled in some war and force you to save them! :angry:
Boy, that took a while to read in one sitting. Fantastic AAR, I can't wait to see Richard III ascend to the throne, and I'm honestly surprised the current king wasn't deposed of immediately.
(God help Europe, you're becoming the Karlings in the 867 start..)
With Paradox announcing the converter for EU4, I am strongly leaning forward continuing this AAR beyond the year 1444. I'm still a beginner concerning Europa Universalis, but I should be able to increase my skills by the time I reach 1444 with this AAR. Hopefully, the story will remain interesting during the EU4 era. This also means that I'll put my Alfred game on hold. I'm not very far anyway and I'd prefer to continue this AAR instead of creating a new one. Playing from 867 to 1453 will be a colossal story to write up as well. I'll keep going, because where I currently am, things are heating up...[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
The crowns of France and Poland are united, just like what happened historically!
On the topic of continuing on to EU4, it sounds fantastic. If you do decide to continue, I'd advise you to try and limit your expansion. (Assuming another ruler expands as quickly as the "Just" did. If you quickly gobble up most of Europe, by the time you reach 1444 you'll be unstoppable.)
Regardless of what you do, I'd suggest cleaning up the borders beforehand. Converted games get really messy.
Oh, goodness, that's some intense fighting in Poland. And I am always in favor of conversion games, though I might urge you to convert to EU3 instead. :rofl:
No, not really. EU4 is going to be awesome, and it looks like they're doing all the right things with their converter.
Wouldn't messy borders make a more interesting AAR though? Currently, I'm being extra careful because the Holy Roman Empire is very strong at this point. Richard I sure spanked them one too many times, so they elected a competent Kaiser. I'll have to see how my 1444 save is like in EU4.
Yeah..So that they get revolts more often? I approve!
Until they become one huge state in EU4 with unique national ideas.
Great recap of Richard II "the Flamboyant". I wonder how different it would've been had he killed his brother and gained the kinslayer trait. Quite a stroke of luck.
Richard II has an inspiring story.
