Tianxia: Silk Road Expansion
"From Ireland to Cathay"
Every now and then, debates will rage on the Crusader Kings II Main Forum on whether there ought to be another Map Extension, but this time into the Far East under the monikers "Crusader Mings" or "Songs of Crusade". Arguments ranging from historical and geographical relevance to performance issues, the topic is something that will never die where in the future, historians will refer this as the "Infinite Paradoxian Civil War" started up by various factions amongst the Scholars of Paradox.
Tianxia, Chinese Romanisation of 天下 or "under heaven", aims to test the waters in regards to whether the Far East belongs in the world of Crusades and Medieval Intrigue of blinding/castrating your own children. A direct continuation of the Mod Project - All Under Heaven by .Me and a partial merger with Umbra Spherae by Camara, Tianxia aims to attempt to bring about the standard Paradox-style vanilla DLC in regards to this massively ridiculously absurd map expansion.

The Permanent Regent's dynasty join this ASAP in AI hands and tend to be reluctant to leave it. - Added a Proclaim Shogunate faction, usable against the Tenno if there isn't a Shogun already. The Permanent Regent cannot join this faction. - Added an End Shogunate faction, usable if the Tenno is part of the same realm. The Shogun's Permanent Regent (if applicable) cannot join.
