That was a very effective move. A lot of problems solved all in one update.
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.
Yes, the revocations went very smoothly, with none of them resisting, removing most of those that don't follow Ukko, Akka, and the other Suomenusko GodsWell now, that is one source of internal discord rather neatly and effectively dealt with.
Thanks, a few tentative steps outside the forest, but still prefer the cool shade of the forest.Nice move. The people of the forest expand onto the plains!
Yes, completely eliminated the independence faction, removed some malcontents, and awarded family and loyal retainers. Also dealt with the technical issue of being over my vassal limit.That was a very effective move. A lot of problems solved all in one update.
Yes, as I said, was happy they all accepted the revocations without protest. Robin and the Merry Men have done well under both Kings they served, and Robin gets a nice retirement home and legacy for his family. He has become downright respectable after starting life as an outlaw.A bloodless coup is always the best kind of coup.
Robin must be awfully proud of himself at this point. From lowly bandit, all the way to High Chief is a road not often traveled.
Hi @Midnite Duke, welcome aboard, so glad you are liking the adventures of the Kardaz and his descendents. Ultimately, I chose Merya because of Kardaz, seeing a cowardly High Chief ruling a warrior society which sparked the initial scenario in this AAR. But I didn't know of him before hand, I was just wanting to play a tribal game, but not another Norse game. I wanted something that would start off with little to no contact with the Catholic feudal states for awhile. So I was looking at Africa or Russia. But I didn't like how restricted your expansion was in Africa with so many sections impassable, so went to the northern forests and started looking at different rulers, until I found Kardaz.@Dunaden, thank you for writing this wonderful tale that I am enjoying immensely. I have several questions if you do not mind. How did you choose Merya? How far ahead of your writing do you play? Do you have a particular end goal or are you going where the game leads? Thank you for reading, have a good day and be safe.
Erziya's punishment for Parush 'the Lecher' was fitting. Parush spent so much time enjoying the company with other men's wives, Erziya decided he would spend the rest of his life in a dark hole with no company at all.Uncle Parush is someone that badly needs to "straighten up". Perhaps some time on the rack would help. Do you use the day of the month to help determine paternity? Going by county emblem, I would say Chief Kardaz of Kostrama's ship had sailed. (I am on comment #195)
I did not see that defeat coming.
This definitely shocked Syrka as he didn't not have any issues in the Liberation of Polotsk fighting the Khazar rebels, so he was expecting something similarOoh. This has been a harsh reversal for our King after his brilliant success with the Lettigallians.
Thank you.ouch, that was a painful defeat I did not see coming. P.S. I love reading this again, great writing as always
Yes, Syrka won't be giving up so easily.A very worrying setback but Minsk must be taken, whatever the cost!
I chose Parush's first wife, but when she died the AI arranged his second marriage and chose his niece. The AI is often basing marriages on spouses wth the most prestige, so if you family is doing well and accruing prestige, you start having them diving back into their own family gene pool.Comment #472, Is the marriage between cousins on you or total AI? I recently played as Dvina that morphed into Georgia where the AI incest got wild. The Chief of Kuloy married his aunt. The new Kuloy chief (dad died young) married his cousin (daughter of mom's twin, the High Chief of Bjarmia). While I was playing as the Chief of Dvina, my family in Georgia (wife was Duchess of Tao and kept four children with her, two of my sisters married into Georgia) got fully aboard the murder/incest train. My wife murdered my sister, wife of the neighboring duke. My sister on her epitaph id'ed my wife as her killer, but my wife received no malus. My daughter married her cousin (daughter of murderer married son of victim). Also, my third son married his aunt (twin of the murder victim). The first son married his step-daughter (at least not blood relation). The wives of the first and second sons were known murderers.
I find it is ironic that Dvina did not have port facilities, since it is home of the great White Sea port, Arkhangelsk. Thank you for reading and be safe.
I'm going with the backwoods Nenets Chieftain with no taste, he is a warrior not a poet.Oh my, that's not the kind of monument I would make to get forgiveness from my liege. Wayngachi either has terrible taste or is playing some sort of game, maybe Pokshava was seduced by his artistic choices?
I'm sorry to see Mastorava go so soon, Syrka will have to be extra thorough in watching his back now.
An unfortunate start to the war but I'm sure that Syrka will have the chance to avenge himself despite the Khazars' reluctance to collapse.
Both Vilnius and Beresty are considered plains, so there was no defensive bonuses as they would get in the forests where they normally fight and horse archers, the bulk of the horde units are devastating in the skirmish and pursuit phases. So basicaly don't fight nomads in the open if you can avoid it.I am caught up. @Dunaden, thank you for writing the true history of the people of the reindeer. Was the largest factor in battlefield loss, the terrain? When the killer is id'ed in the victim's epitaph, but receives no malus, is this because the killer is a landed noble and the victim is unlanded? When the queen's baby is born, can you publish the birthdates (month and date) for child and his/her full siblings? Thank you for your time
