The update is on the previous page.
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.
When opportunities present themselves ....I feel like I just read through a story line for a Bruce Willis movie!
Wow...what a way to become King of Scotland. I'm sure it went all according to plan!
Thanks! Whilst the setting isn't quite as interesting as the Egypto-Norse - I hope the story can be just as good .What a great start! Excellent story so far, I loved your Egypto-Norse AAR so I'm glad to see another with the similar format.
I had initially planned on staying loyal to the Norwegians for a while after they took over - they treated me pretty well after all. However, Yrsa, who earned the title ''Ill Ruler'' before her death, was so useless that I couldn't help myself.Too bad you managed to get independent from the Norse
Indeed. I'm going to miss being a vassal - there aren't nearly as many opportunities to stab everyone in the back .Hmm. An ambitious yet treacherous young Earl stabbing people left, right and centre by land and by sea? It appears Scotland's King was aptly named indeed!
Your loyalty is greatly appreciated.Consider us your loyal retainers
Hope you start playing again, its a great game!I haven't touched CKII in probably a year - this was fun, and it's making me want to pick it up again!
Indeed let us be be a celtic empire Ruling irish,welsh, cornish, bretons and the Middlelanders ruled from not london.just discovered this. i must say that i am very impressed and look forward to more!
I think you may be surprised by the Irish in this AAR ...You should bring freedom to the Irish....
They need saving... from themselves!
Thanks! Hope you continue to enjoy it .just discovered this. i must say that i am very impressed and look forward to more!
Well, don't know about the ending yet - but will aim to please.I hope this AAR has an ending as crazy as the Egypto-Norse one! Will definitely follow!
Well, the capital must surely be somewhere in Scotland! Beyond that, your ideas of a Celtic Empire sound interesting.Indeed let us be be a celtic empire Ruling irish,welsh, cornish, bretons and the Middlelanders ruled from not london.
Like northumbria or something.
Thus leaving the capital in leeds... :mellow:
The Vikings didn't turn out too powerful in this AAR - hell, the Ivarings were pretty much beaten even before the MacAilpins lost control of Scotland to Norway. IIRC the Ivarings survive as the Christian-Norse Earls of the Isle of Mann (Scottish vassals, naturally) until sometime in the 11th century when the dynasty changed and they died out.Ahhh another Scots AAR and a Megacampaign to boot! Very well written and illustrated. Count me in.
Having also survived the Norse (though as the MacAilpins) I found the best policy was to toadie up to Ivar in order that he focus his warmaking south of Scotland then go at him when the inevitable Gavelkind wars of succession kicked in. It was a bit touch and go for 100 odd years but that and nibbling away at Ireland to bring me more and more manpower eventually had my dynasty as overlords of Scotland and Ireland (and then Wales).
Loving this AAR. Consider me in!
That one will probably have to be a self made mod, taking up a lot of time unless I do it shoddily (which is always a possibility ).Pretty interesting so far , but how do you plan to convert the game from Vic2 to DH?
Thanks!Ah sweet, another megacampaign by Tommy! I'll be following this one too, and I hope this one doesn't end due to your becoming a republic in EUIV.
Glad you're excited for one of my AARs . Hope its a more enjoyable experience following one from the start.Awesome, I actually get to read along this time around. On a side note, what's the Coat of Arms of house MacDrostan?
Boo! I demand the Cymry culture be left un-bastardised!The expansion of Scottish influence into this remote corner of Wales would mark the beginning of a gradual colonisation of the country by the Scots – a colonisation that would totally alter Wales’ social, political and linguistic landscape.
