Damn, this gives me flashbacks about my germanic reformed saxon campaign, when my God-King was Jesus Christ Odinson, in Ironmode and without mods.

Not very good but mostly due to me handicapping myself to get a challenge and am loving it compared to the minmaxy games I have been having lately.
Just got hit with this event after deciding I would make this game a tall one lmao seems like its blobbing time in a couple years.

That portrait is racist. Please remove.

More or less good. My historical tism made me reload a save when my title-revoked brother became grandmaster of the Knights of Santiago and magically de-vassalize the order from me just because he wanted to. That shit makes no sense: The order was established by leonese-castilian monarchs and ultimately always remained under the crown.

Besides that, the game is fairly normal and now I am just waiting my moment to strike back against a reunited Al-Andalus. Against all odds one of the taifa kingdoms (my tributary, in fact), waged war and conquered all others, and once I came back from a crusade the lower half of the Peninsula is green.

Pretty kino I would say.

Did he have a low opinion of you or were you the wrong religion?

Is this an early start mod? A Rome of that size by 862 with defensive pacts on seems rough otherwise.
>>
>>1548774
>Is this an early start mod?
Nah. I started in 769, as early as Charlemagne dlc allows me. I just had a bit of fun with console commands; almost solely giving me extra funds. I expanded aggressively by constantly purchasing mercenaries (and the npc vassal kings also expanded on their own).
>>
>>1548817
Ah, that would explain it.
And the hell is going on with those Zunibils over there, did Zun somehow not die out?
>>
>>1548426
Wow, you are just staying as a count? Did you start in 700s or 800s?
>>
>>1549479
800s.
I made it a challenge of following my characters traits to the end.
My first one was a content greedy craven so I just ended his entire 12 year reign hoarding ducats, then the second was a greedy brave man so I spent his 8 year reign gaining two province alongside my own by attacking fellow vassals since my liege got really big due to a relative of his dying, then he got assasinated since he made rivals and enemies by getting too powerful too quick, got assasinated. And now my current one was a child when he took over and I had my main province taken away in war declared against my liege by another duke, that province was pretty pimped out by the second character so its a huge loss.
>>
>>1548658
It'd be a waste to not build an empire with a child of destiny. Its too tempting I wont resist it.
>>
>>1548771
low opinion: i had taken his titles before that, not to mention I also forced him to join the order, lol.
>>
What's for you the peak and best "crusader" starting character? the one that best embodies the theme of conquering paradise, either for his location, historical background or potential?
>>
>>1550739
The Hautevilles at Apulia, early game is interesting and the mid to late game will have you facing strong empires in nearly every direction. So its never boring.
>>
>>1547780
It would be better if it wasn't for my extremely low end PC and DLC limitations.
>>
Anyone knows where is the opinion line for "having too many duchies"? I'm not talking about editing the number of held duchies which is in defines file. I'm talking about that -10 opinion penalty for each duchy.
>>
Does anyone have a mod that fixes exclave independence thing and makes it work every 5 or 10 years instead of on rulers death?
>>
favorite portrait mod?

I really like Elder Kings Frosty Portraits. Obviously it's Elder Kings submod, but portraits are well done, mixing more modern gfx-es quite well. I usually use one of BLG submods, since I often play with mods.

I'm pretty sure it's infinite and if it's not it's some unrealistically high cap, at least over -1000.

Is there a random map generator for CK2?
Seems like it would be perfect to use with random world.
>>
>>1552267
there use to be a guy who made a mod that generated a random map with random religions, random cultures, random characters and even a random history
don't know if he ever updated it to the latest version of CK2
>>
>>1551238
love this start. great if you wanna build a south Italian kingdom that branches into Africa and the east Mediterranean, or take crusader states. My best game was converting to Neopolitan, becoming Orthodox after repeated excommunications, conquering Italy, placing a branch of the family on the Jerusalem and Egyptian thrones, and then getting elected Byzantine emperor. I was about 400 years into the game and close to reforming Rome when my savefile corrupted and made me wanna kill myself
>>
>>1552267
there was, but it's abandonware

Why doesn't the game let me create the empire of Abyssinia when i have all the de jure territories to do so? Why do i also need the crown of Egypt too?! I have Ethiopia, i have Nubia and one quarter of my court is influenced by my sister in law who wants to kill me for a dispute on an exclave duchy in Georgia, aren't these enough in order to be considered an emperor?!

>>
>>1552590
No digging, no mods. You should be able to find all CK2 porn mods on LoversLab. Requires an account.

There is nothing notable in those two kingdoms, you have to be a part of civilization to be an empire.

Very well. This started out as an unstable mess settled from nomads but a few decades of shrewd viceroyalty use and council bribes has turned this into a proper empire now. Most of the land is buddhist. Also, Guge is ruled by Rurikids descended from a child of destiny
>>
>>1554458
So what is your goal with it now?
