Dark Lieutenant of Sauron
- Oct 23, 2002
Scenario: County of Carcassone - 1066
Dificulty: Difficult - Coward, subject to change in either direction after judging AI Behaviour (I want stable kingdoms) and Grabbing-Usurping costs (I don't want cheap or too incredibly expensive costs)
This AAR will be 'written' just in images, so I can use proper fonts for it.
I will apply an extensive set of rulings (my rules of 'CK self containment' as I posted them in the Spanish CK Forum). Basically those are:RULES HERE (in Spanish)
I.1 No obvious genetic program. My tittle holder or his first three direct heirs will only marry correctly (with relatives to tittle holders of comparative importance to mine).
I.2 No marriage to Agnes of Aquitaine.
II. 'Supply' Rules:
II.1 I will always keep a minimum of personal domain of 50% (round up) of the counties relative to my main tittle, if possible. This will not apply if you already control in your personal domain 66% (round up) of the provinces of your main tittle.
II.2 Will only keep in my domain or as a vassal provinces to which I can trace a route of 'supply' as in Mad King James proposed supply rules, but restricted to a sea distance of 1 per docks level (including as 1st level dock the fishing thingy). Land-wise, no distance applied.
II.3 If a county is not possibly supplied though this rules I will grant it independce in any way.
II.4 This rules are suspended temporarily on muslim provinces during crusades.
III. Tittles Rules:
III.1 The first ducal tittle my family will be able to claim is: Languedoc, Tolouse, Provence or Spanish Marche.
III.2 I will only grant appropiate ducal tittles to vassals (that is, they will need to have at least one province of that tittle), that is, if I ever manage to be king.
III.3 Inherited provinces and tittles will also be subjected to the supply rules.
IV.1 Unless I can 'supply' the conquered territories, I will give create an independent noble lord with the appropiate tittle or give the provinces back to him if he already exists (for example: giving back Jerusalem and any other province of this kingdom to the kingdom of Jerusalem if it already exists).
IV.2 The previous rule is suspended while there is the appropiate crusade active.
V.1 A maximum of 1 assasination target each main tittle holder of the family per each the following conditions (this means any number of attempts to that target):
* Cruel Trait
* Arbitrary Trait
* Liar Trait
* Vengeful Trait
* Lustful Trait (only applicable for a target that would be husband of a woman you want to marry, or to murder your own wife).
* Intricate Webreaver education trait
* Illusive Shadow (this grants 2 instead of 1)
* Grey Eminence education trait
I will review the savegame extensively each 5 years to apply my supply conditions to each main independent kingdom or duchy.
As you will understand, for this and the fact I will have to build my 'pages' it will take LONG for each update.
Anticipated thanks to any kind reader that would follow this story.
