Some interim general comment feedback, leaving the specific answers to questions to the next Thing.
It didn't take long for him to start feeling like a proper ruler I note
Yeah, that’s where he’s got it from!Like father like son
I always leave it off, and rely on alerts and periodic checks to assess plots. Some I could turn off I just leave on. Good idea re Helgi: if (narratively) his murder of the Emperor’s sister is ever discovered, that might be a fitting punishment!Advice: Turn off auto end plots and watch for righteous imprisonment opportunities. A small failed imprisonment revolt is easier to handle than a large faction revolt. Send Helgi to visit the hardliners and find their secrets. If one kills Helgi, shed a few tears and send the widow a fruit basket. Scum in the oubliette can not join factions but can be claimants. Revolters make wonderful honored guests at the next blot.
It was worth checking. Will see if he lives to the next blot.Good call, and his stats doesn't seem as good as I remember him to be, I assumed he was much better. For him, it's not worth.
Hope so - they’ve been very active of late.Some Jarl in the north can do it for us anyway
Will consider it if worth it or it becomes urgent. I’d prefer to wind them down peacefully at this stage,though. More money may help with that.Just before my laptop gave up his ghost, I had a newfound love for assassinating powerful vassals who are in independence factions. Might be useful.
Same here!My eyes rather shine at the 4400 Heavy Infantry!
Good thinking. If he looks incorrigible, I’ll investigate the possibility.A very nice episode and I'm already warming up to the new Emperor! Let's see what the future holds for him. To repeat myself, try assassinating the troublesome Jarl (I forgot his name). My experience says when somebody is that powerful, for sure he stepped on the toes of some people who will be eager to join in the plot.
Good theories. I’ll check next time to see if I can find out.My first two guesses on the missing steward are he became incapable or he inherited land.
Even more so in an early reign.The larger an empire, the more civil wars you can have because the factions tend to get bigger/stronger and more varied. So russia does need to watch out for them.
