You want to give Muslims both the ability to gain vast amounts of loot and the ability to freely invade all neighbours? There would be nothing left of Europe by 1100. I agree it's a little ahistorical not to let them but simply for balance purposes...
In fact, I would give them the former and strip them from the latter, because the latter has no sense after the initial Muslim expansion in the VII century. Just look at Iberia. In OTL Muslim conquest after the initial invasion of the Visigothic Kingdom was almost null, whilst raids happened periodically.
in my honest opinion, both muslims and christians should be able to raid aswell, BUT with a special condition, they MUST be at war against the target raided. Muslims used to raid and pillage a LOT in Iberia, and what to say about the muslim pirates raiding the Byzantine Empire (among other targets...). about the christians, shall we not forget about the many raid campaigns conducted during the 100 years war (just as an example).
I think the same. Just remember what did the Crusaders.
Perhaps everyone should be able to raid their respective heathens...
Of course, you still can raid as it is, even in 1.092: When you siege holdings, you get gold. Perhaps P'dox decided that traditional wars better represent the raiding activities of non-pagans.
Thats pretty much just normal warfare in CK2, then. With the added feature that the gold is coming from the county rather than the characters.
But there is no damage in this. No destruction of improvements.
