Yeah, I saw that after I had rushed to see the picture :p , the game looks great and I wish you luck dealing with the Marshal of France since it seems like you're going to need it.

I try to not get carried away because I still don't trust Paradox to make a polished release until they have actually done one, no matter what they say about it in advance. But I do trust them to produce the occasional game that will become a real classic, and this really looks like it could be the next one.

Have you played Sengoku? Since that game was very polished at release.

So incredibly exciting. One of the things I love about Crusader Kings (among countless other items) is that reading the stories of gameplay are almost as exciting as playing the game itself. Thanks for this treat. Please, please, please post more! Anything!

There are so many features included I can't make up my mind which I love the most.

Anyway, hails from all my seven castles!

Hint: look at my avatar - Transsylvania, in German known as Siebenbürgen meaning Sevencastles.

You can name children. Nice ! I can't wait playing an viking dynasty and naming a character after my self :D, or just some other cool name. I remember reading the threat were people begged for child naming option. Somehow I got the feeling this would not be in the game. But now I am really happy !
Once again, great work you have done with the crusader kings games !
