Right next to the Arch Heathen himself. Perfect for keeping an eye on him and his shiny, shiny stuff.

Really this impresses Emperor of six empires?

View attachment 700811
It is not the tilte that impresses, but the person.
And a wide hip was the beauty ideal for european women back in those days. It was seen as a sign of fertility.
Being obeses? It showed that you could afford to spend a lot on food (indeed it still does to this day in japan).
Gout was know as "the rich mans disease" for a reason.

Is this a coincidence or are the people at paradox laughing their asses off? Game of thrones House bolton? & ramsay with his dogs.

ive found Halfdan Svarti before with a house motto something along the lines of "we carve runes of xxxx" so i obviously thought it was Halfdan the black, because svarti means black. but i think it was randomly generated and pure coincidence as ive never found him again

Coincidence. Bolton is a town in England, and a barony in game, though its usage in this character is probably anachronistic. The dynasty name in your game is because he was likely landed there and the game sometimes take the dynasty name just from barony no matter the culture.
The dogs motto is also a coincidence because afaik even the largest houses gets completely random ones in game.

The game does have a "Historical Database" for all known characters. However characters without historical data are just randomly generated as the game needs someone to put in place.
In somce cases even the traits and specialisation of named characters are randomized, as there was simply not enough data.

So much for wisdom haha

Wisdom taught him: "You do not need to outrun the bear - just the guy running with you."
The problem was that either there was no other guy - or the other guy was faster.

Less "unusual" and more "good job, AI" but the AI is currently sitting on a temple with his siege weapons while his soldiers try to siege down a mountain fort in the same county.

And a wide hip was the beauty ideal for european women back in those days. It was seen as a sign of fertility.
Being obeses? It showed that you could afford to spend a lot on food (indeed it still does to this day in japan).
Wide hips have generally been a beauty ideal for women in most cultures. Wide waists, not so much.

What you wrote about contemporary Japan is patently untrue. The Japanese greatly prize slimness in women, and if a woman is overweight they will almost certainly be judged more negatively for it than they would be in the west.
