Very very good so far! Awaiting for Moar updates!
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.
No odd Emperors thus far (although plenty of useless ones). Wait for the Part 12 for Emperor oddness.re: Byzantium, I've never actually seen it disappear in CK, but it can shrink to very little & some very odd people become the Emperor, so all in all your Empire is doing as expected.
Well, I couldn't just let Edgar's line die out.Hurrah! Edgar makes an appearance! Well done on getting a Principality for yourself. A Saxon Tsar of Bulgaria - that'd be quite something to behold...
Saxon England and Rome/Byzantium are both areas that interest me, so it has been fun trying to mix them together.Just read through all of this and I really like it. I really like the love for detail mixed with an accurate description of society at the time
I think "just barely cunning enough" is about right. He is a bit direct for Byzantine sensibilities, but then by contrast westerners often found the Greeks slippery to deal with.A very interesting idea; an Saxon as a Prince of the Empire? I like it. Will be following.
Cerdic seems just barely cunning enough to thrive within the Empire; I do like his impromptu conquest of Wallachia.
February has been a very busy month and has flown by (work, my baby's christening, work, everyone catching colds from pre-school, work......). Next update coming up in a few minutes.Very very good so far! Awaiting for Moar updates!
Sounds like everything's proceeding as OTL then!No strange emperors, although plenty of useless ones
It is a perilous occupation being a marshal. This worries me as I have been volunteered to be a fire-marshal at work.I'll make no comments about the injuries to your marshalls ... nice update and a hint at tumoult to come for your readers, at least, to look forward to.
Just role-play really. However the realm is getting too big to manage without vassals, so it was useful.Your power grows...
Did you award the earldom of Ragusa to Eadgar just for the sake of RP? Or was there another reason?
I realised I was missing lots of the screenshots I needed from this period. I have gone back to the save file for one of Edward, but have struggled to get everything else I wanted.Sounds like everything's proceeding as OTL then!
Cerdic at least seemed to get the hang of Byzantine back-stabbing and betrayal by the end of his life - good for him. Edward seems promising (can we see his sheet?), despite setting himself up for a fratricidal struggle and a contest with the Aethelings. I'm looking forward to watching both from a safe distance
Spectacularly incompetant is right. I had chosen to start Cerdic off with an Earldom on the Adriatic as I didn't want to do a crusading AAR. Within 20 years my Byzantine comfort blanket has fallen apart and (between the Turks and the Emperor Nasr) the whole Empire is in Muslim hands. I hadn't seen a Muslim Byzantine Emperor before in CK, so it was a bit of a shock. Lots of interesting possibilities though.well that was dramatic ... featuring a spectacularly incompetent Byzantine & Turks now ruling the City of Men (some 400 years early)
That sounds plausible. I think Nasr's Emirate of Edessa bordered the Empire before the Turks swallowed Anatolia.Oh. It was so unusual I thought you had edited the save file. Maybe the Emir had gotten a "claim your neighbor's title" event, giving him a claim on the Imperial throne.
They do their best. After all, how will people sing heroic songs about you if you die at home of gout.its all going so well ... too well one muses? Really impressed with the death rate amongst your generals ... the mark of any well balanced CK kingdom.
RL quite busy (when is it not), so writing time is scarce.So it begins!
Glad to see this back too!
