• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

This is a succession game with a twist. Rather than stick with one dynasty or nation we will bounce around the board. So far I've participated in two different succession games like this and they have been very successful and produced fascinating alternate universes. The previous ANSGAAR game can be found here while the original Divine Influence game can be found here.

Rules:

1. Select from of three rulers using the random ruler button (the little die in the corner). You can roll until you receive a choice of three dukes/kings/emperors but you may choose any counts or barony-level patricians that you happen to roll. Please post all your choices because it is always fun for everyone to speculate on what would be the best choice.

2. Every player gets a minimum of fifteen years per turn. If your ruler dies before that time period then you can play their heir till they die. Please try to finish turns within a week, though we will be flexible.

3. Please post your save to the thread once you are finished. The next person on the list can then upload the save and randomly select their next character based on the save. The next person will have two days to respond till we move on.

4. During a playthrough, players are encouraged to post AARs detailing their progress. Players can be as detailed or sparse as you like and use any kind of AAR writing style. If a player does not have time to write much or post screenshots then a brief update would be sufficient.

5. We will start in 769 and play either till 1444 or 53.

6. DLCs are optional but the main ones are preferred. No Sunset Invasion, however.

7. We will use the default disease and Mongol invasion options.

8. We will always try to use the most recent version unless the saves become incompatible.

9. After the completion of CK2 we will attempt to convert the game into EU4 and then Victoria 2. Unfortunately we ran into trouble with this part in the last ANSGAAR game so it would be appreciated if we could get someone who is good at modding. In the original Divine Influence game we got through the EU stage but ran into trouble converting it to Victoria.

I'd like to say now that I won't have access to a computer to play CK2 through September, so I'd prefer to be near the bottom of the playlist if we only have a few people.

Would it be worth also making a post in the MP subforum? Might be some people there who would be interested.

Nobody too flashy to start off the AAR, but I sorta like all of the choices available.

SxfHYd6.jpg


First up is some Byzantine Strategos in Achaia. Byzantine intrigue is always fun, but I'm not sure how much I could influence things in a turn. Probably the least appealing choice.

PeYt558.jpg


Next up is an independent Indian duke near Pala. I'm already having flashbacks to my last one of these. Would be neat to try again, or try to diversify.

PB9Urzw.jpg


Even though he's a count, I rather like the look of this guy. When did Sogdians get added to the game? He's probably a little weak, but it's a chance for some cool alt history.

cWsAosd.jpg


And there's a good ol' Welsh duke. I'm drawn to the Welshness, but I'm not sure the British Isles is the way to get a very interesting game.

I rather like all of the choices here, except perhaps the Byzantine. What do y'all think?

Go for one of the independent ones (the Welsh guy or the Indian duke). Should be more scope for getting things done.
