Oberto II will obviously be admired twice as much by his vassals than Oberto I.
But Oberto wont care, as he had probably already forgotten having a father once....just like him.
Well that was damn inconvenient of him.
well if Oberto keeps to his father's traditions in things such as mourning lost relatives, he'll be off to war in the morning?
Great AAR, I'm really enjoying it.
It's really not an aphrodisiac at all power is just another currency.
What better way to honor your dead warmongering father than with more war?
It's what Oberto I would have wanted.
When did they add the offer vassalization option and what are the requirements? It sounds pretty awesome (not as awesome as your AAR, but close )
That was fast. Barely a year...maybe it was the stress and smallpox that did him in?
Offer vassalition has been in since CK1. The requirements are that the person you are attempting to vassalize must:
A. Like you or at least not hate you too much
B. You need to be his de jure liege for it to work.
C. If you are a duke or king offering vassalition to a count or a duke, you'll get the "Small difference in Rank" malus, meaning they may not accept.
D. Finally, your power modifier. If you are the Holy Roman Emperor, most will agree to be your vassal. If you're the King of the Isles, most will laugh derisively in your face.
Considering how close the di Parma family is I think he simply never quite got over the passing of his much beloved father, the poor chap. Hopefully Oberto III can survive the great grief Oberto II's passing will doubtless cause him.
Oberto II is the William Henry Harrison of Parma.
Let's hope the force is strong with this one...
Seconded! the di Parma ancestors are screaming for the netherworld.. More War or we kill you!
Also, he should sire a heir not named Oberto.
There are places where you can get your head chopped off for voicing such ideas!
how dare you?!
Found the time to sit down and read some more.
I'm about halfway through now and enjoying it very much.
Keep up the good work!
What, did you think Oberto(es) relied just on his Spymaster for assassinations? Many of his enemies have been found dead from "strangulation with no fingerprints" and "indoor lightning strikes."
