    Icon4 Anyone else play Crusader Kings 2: A Game of Thrones mod?

    I just recently bought Crusader Kings 2 and its a pretty great game. I've seen a couple threads on here on this subject but they're pretty old. Any other WTW players here who've played it?



    The difference with CK2 is that it's much more accurate when it comes to portraying the feudal system. The game engine is mainly based on king/vassal relations and working towards keeping your kingdom/duchy/county stable. Rather than the simple total war strategy of improving economy->training troops->conquering everything in your path, CK2 makes you work for your vassal's loyalty so that you make sure you have sufficient support from your lords and sufficient levies that they will raise in your name when you call your bannermen for war. Remember in the books how Robb had to call all his vassals to bring themselves and their levies to Winterfell, and how guys like the Greatjon wanted to test his lieges courage by demanding he lead the march in the front? Robb didn't recruit troops with his own money in the castles of the North and simply command them to go where he pleases. He had to trust in the loyalty of his vassals to raise their banners in his name to save his father. You can also appoint your own council members from maester all the way to master-at-arms. There is a system of marriage alliances that's much more fun and immerse than total war marriages.



    The biggest downfall is that CK2 is not as war-oriented as total war (duh the name TW kinda makes it obvious) because there is no battle mode. There is only the 'campaign' mode, but you are still able to declare wars and lead armies into battle although there is a system with a lot of counterparts that determine the outcome of battle. You don't train troops, though. You call your levies from your vassals and your lords alone determine how many troops to raise for your cause. The more your vassals like you, the more they will give. If you are Lord Paramount of the Vale and your lords dislike you, don't expect them to give you more than 15k troops. However, if you're Jon Arryn and you know most of your vassals love you, you can pull out as much as 40k (and this is without training troops at all).



    There's so much i can describe about the game that makes it more 'personal' and makes you feel like you're actually in control of a realm because you consider the opinions of your vassals, that it's really worth picking it up and giving it a try. In WTW you don't have to worry about your vassals rebelling against you or disliking your warlike antics, so you can do whatever you want as a lord paramount or king (when in reality it's not like that), but of course I understand that total war games are about the battles and sieges. I encourage all of you guys to pick the game up and download the Game of Thrones mod and give it a shot. It's much more of a "game of thrones" than a game of battles.

    The mod is awesome but it is pretty heavy for my old computer, if I increase the speed it starts to lag, it is very boring to play at the lowest speed.

    Agreed. My laptop can handle the game at higher speeds but it does have a bit of lag when it comes to clicking and it gets kind of annoying but i noticed that if you go off to the side away from the continent the lag disappears.

    I've had it for ages. Last game i played on it was as Robb Stark.

    Story Below...
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    I held off against King Joffrey, Tywin Lannister and Mace Tyrell. Joffrey had Sansa executed and in response i had Jaime executed. I married Arya off to House Arryn giving me The Vales assistance in the war. Robb killed Tywin in single combat on the field of battle, sometime afterwards Joffrey and Tommon both died, (I may have had Joffrey tossed of the side of the Red Keep...) Stannis became King on the Iron Throne and demanded that i bend the knee. I refused and after a long bloody war with both sides tasting loss and victory i captured Stannis and held him prisoner at Winterfell. He demanded Trial by Combat and Robb accepted the challenge himself, the fight was long and the outcome unsure, with both Stannis and Robb drawing blood, in the end Robb got the upper hand and Stannis fell to his knees and begged for mercy, Robb did not show him such and struck him down.

    Daenerys Targaryen soon arrived on Westeros and with no male heir from Stannis, Dany took the Throne and Robb made peace with the Dragon. Later seeing that Dany had no husband i tossed aside Roslin Frey and married Daenerys myself, reassuring the peace between us and safeguarding The Norths independence for years to come. There was still the matter of the child born of Sansa and Joffrey shortly before her death, wherever or not Robb sees fit to let the child live is debatable.


    I'll have to actually start a series on my channel using the mod soon, it's very enjoyable.

    I don't enjoy it as much as I used too. I think there are far too many pop ups now, too many minsters, and now they're going to add Essos. I think it is far too much now. They'd be better off making new starting dates, such as a King of Rivers and Hills scenario. It's still fun, but I'm starting to prefer the original game. Too each there own eh. It is a very fun mod.

    The strength of it is how easily it can include dragons. Aegon's conquest and the Dance of Dragons are the best scenarios. Nothing beats killing Aegon's dragon as Haren the Black, or feeding your enemies to your dragon.

    I've only really played one entire game of it. That being the Robb Stark one. (I just don't have the free time nowadays)

    What I mean is, each update adds too much for my taste.

    I am glad someone started a new thread of this, I didn't want to revive the other one when a new update comes out. I played the base game to death and the Game of Thrones mod tripled my hours played.

    Here's one of the crazy things that can happen. Just a note this is the 'cool' Frey. He was Robb's squire in the books



    Here is the manual:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    [1] Scenarios
    -------------
    7999- Seven Kingdoms
    Before the conquest seven Kings ruled in Westeros, each struggling for power and supremacy over the other. Can you emulate Aegon Targaryen and unite all of Westeros under one King?

    8000- War of Conquest
    Aegon Targaryen and his sisters have landed at the mouth of the Blackwater, armed with three mighty dragons. Argilac the Arrogant has spurned Aegon's offer of a marriage between his friend Orys and Argilac's daughter, sending back the hands of Aegon's envoy. As a consequence Aegon has vowed to conquer to the Seven Kingdoms, proclaiming 'There will be only one King'.

    8129- The Dance of the Dragons
    Upon Viserys' death in 129AL, the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, Ser Criston Cole, defies the king's will, and crowns Prince Aegon as Aegon II.A civil war fought between Aegon II Targaryen and Rhaenyra Targaryen for control of the Iron Throne emerges.

    8157- Conquest of Dorne
    When Prince Daeron the Young Dragon ascended the Iron Throne in 157 AL, he declared war on the independent Kingdom of Dorne to complete the legacy of his ancestor Aegon the Conqueror and to unite all Seven Kingdoms under Targaryen rule. Daeron won the war quickly, a victory that he immortalized in his book Conquest of Dorne: "The arms of House Martell display the sun and spear, the Dornishman's two favourite weapons, but of the two, the sun is the more deadly." After the invasion the Young Dragon left the Lord Paramount of the Reach to rule Dorne in his stead. But the proud Dornishmen, although defeated, would neither submit to a Dragon nor to a Tyrell. Conspiracies and revolts spread throughout Dorne like wildfire, culminating in the death of Lord Tyrell. His death led to rebellion throughout Dorne and in a fortnight all Daeron had achieved was undone.

    8195- The Blackfyre Rebellion
    Westeros is on the brink of civil war as Daemon Blackfyre, the legitimized bastard son of King Aegon IV, has risen in rebellion against his trueborn brother King Daeron II, forcing the lords of Westeros to choose between the black dragon and the red dragon. Meanwhile in the North, House Stark faces a rebellion led by the dangerous Skagosi. It is up to you to decide the fate of the Seven Kingdoms. When you play the Game of Thrones, you either win or you die.

    8211- After the Spring
    The Great Spring Sickness that ravaged the Seven Kingdoms, killing young and old, lords and peasants alike, is finally over. With King Daeron the Good killed by the plague and his eldest son Prince Baelor Breakspear slain during the tourney at Ashford his younger son Aerys I Targaryen now sits upon the Iron Throne. While the Targaryens, Blackfyres and the rest of Westeros already begin their old schemes for power, fame or gold anew, a young squire named Egg starts on the long path ahead of him under the guidance of Ser Duncan the Tall...

    8282- Roberts Rebellion
    Westeros is on the brink of Civil War. Rhaegar Targaryen, the heir to the Iron Throne, has kidnapped Lyana Stark - the betrothed of the Lord Paramount of the Stormlands, and Daughter of the Lord Paramount of the North. Brandon Stark, her elder brother, and heir to the North, charges south demanding vengeance. The mad King - Aerys, outraged by Brandon's demands had him and his father executed, and calls for Eddard's head as well. As all but Balon Greyjoy and Tywin Lannister prepare to declare their allegiances, it is up to you to decide the fate of the Seven Kingdoms.

    8284- The Crowned Stag
    Robert's Rebellion is over. The Targaryen's are all but wiped out, their last scion's scattered to the free cities in the form of a young man and a babe in arms. Robert Baratheon now sits upon the Iron Throne of Westeros, but soon realises that being a King is not quite so easy as he had expected. "Honor? I've got Seven Kingdoms to rule! One king, Seven Kingdoms! Do you think honor keeps them in line? Do you think it's honor that's keeping the peace? It's fear! Fear and blood!"

    8289- The Greyjoy Rebellion
    Believing King Robert's rule to be insecure, Lord Balon Greyjoy of Pyke has proclaimed himself King of the Iron Islands and is in rebellion against the Iron Throne. He has been crowned beneath Nagga's Ribs, by the priest Tarle the Thrice-Drowned with a driftwood crown, and is trying to secure independence for the Iron Islands and restore their traditions of old, lost almost three hundred years before, during the War of Conquest...

    8299- A Clash of Kings
    Westeros is once again at war. After the untimely death of Robert Baratheon, his untested firstborn son - Joffrey, sits the Iron Throne. However, scandal regarding the boy kings' parentage has shaken the Seven Kingdoms to their foundations. After discovering the truth, Eddard Stark sent word to Stannis Baratheon, Robert's younger brother, informing him that he is heir to the Iron Throne - an action that cost him his head. Eddard's Son - Robb, supported by House Tully of the Riverlands, call their banners against the Throne. Meanwhile, Renly - Stannis' and Robert's youngest sibling, has struck an alliance in the Reach in order to press the claim in his own name. Finally, Balon Greyjoy, ever the opportunist, declares his own independence, and sends his reavers to reap the treasures of the North. In this Scenario, relive the central conflict of the 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series, immortalised by George R. R. Martin, but remember: Winter Is Coming

    8300- A Feast for Crows

    ----------------------
    [2] Westeros Mega-Wars
    ----------------------
    Civil wars in Westeros no longer work the same way they do in vanilla. When a Lord Paramount takes up arms against the Iron Throne, the realm fractures, and the great houses must all decide whether to support the King, to support the rebellion, to strike out on their own, or to stay neutral and bide their time. For the duration of any such war, all Lords Paramount are regarded as being /de facto/ independent from the King on the Iron Throne.

    Here are the details:

    1. When a civil war begins, every Lord Paramount sworn to the Iron Throne becomes /de facto/ independent, and is presented with the following options:
    - Support the King
    - Support the Rebels. This is only possible if the rebels are using one of the following casus belli:
    * A claim on the Iron Throne.
    * A war to depose the King
    * A war to overthrow the King
    * A succession war for the Iron Throne
    * A war to weaken a vassal
    * A war of independence
    - Remain neutral.
    - Seize the opportunity and declare independence

    2. Lords Paramount who are already at war when the civil war begins must remain neutral until their current crisis is done with.

    3. When a civil war ends, all Lords Paramount who are at peace and are still /de jure/ vassals of the Iron Throne will become /de facto/ vassals once again.

    4. Any Lord Paramount who is still fighting their own war at the end of a civil war must finish that war before being vassalized.

    5. A neutral Lord Paramount can either choose a side or declare independence at any time. This is done with the decisions found in the intrigue menu

    6. In addition, direct vassals of a Lord Paramount can choose to go against their liege's choice. So for example they can declare for the King if their Lord rebels.

    7. A Drowned God character who raids the King's allies or neutral Lords during a mega war will lose opinion with the King, and will also give the King just cause to imprison them.

    Independence wars for Lords Paramount are different from those fought by standard vassals. The Lords Paramount each rule one of the traditional Seven Kingdoms, and when they break away, they gain a decision that allows them to crown themselves King or Queen once again. Any lord who neighbours a kingdom fighting for independence may choose to defect from the Iron Throne and swear their fealty to the new king instead. When a kingdom gains their independence, all lords who supported them will become their vassals.


    ------------------------
    [3] New education system
    ------------------------
    The education system has been dramatically altered to incorporate both Maesters and the new combat prowess traits. Your child's educational path is no longer based on their guardian. Instead, when your child reaches the age of six, you will choose their education from among the following options:

    - Groomed for command (Martial Education)
    - Groomed for court (Diplomatic or Intrigue Education)
    - Tutored by a steward (Stewardship Education)
    - No formal education (A random education trait, likely to be poor)

    Any formal education will now cost you money.

    ----------------------
    [4] New combat tactics
    ----------------------
    Combat tactics have been changed. Martial skill now has a much stronger effect on the outcome of a battle. Every tactic now has five levels of success: failed, botched, classic, impressive, and legendary. At each level, the offensive power of the tactic increases by 25%, and the defensive power of the tactic increases by 10%.

    The chance that you will successfully execute a particular tactic depends on your martial skill, with your odds of success improving with every other skill level up to 24. Some examples:

    - Martial 0
    * 17% Failed
    * 52% Botched
    * 23% Standard
    * 8% Impressive
    - Martial 10
    * 27% Botched
    * 46% Classic
    * 27% Impressive
    - Martial 24
    * 5% Botched
    * 15% Classic
    * 55% Impressive
    * 25% Legendary

    You must have Martial 16 or above to execute a legendary tactic, and Martial 8 or below to executed a Failed tactic.

    -------------------------
    [5] Combat Prowess Traits
    -------------------------
    In addition to the standard education traits, characters may now have one of four personal combat traits:
    - Poor Warrior
    - Trained Warrior
    - Skilled Warrior
    - Master Warrior

    Your personal combat prowess affects a few things, including your chance of a successful ambush. You can raise a child's personal combat prowess by having them train under a skilled fighter, or by forcing them to train with you - if you're willing to risk injuring them. Your master at arms also has an action to train your children.


    --------------
    [6] Kingsguard
    --------------
    The Lord Commander is a High Lord (duke) level vassal of the Iron Throne

    When a new Kingsguard is needed, players have a choice between choosing a great fighter, a croney or one of the sons of the nobility.
    With each option generating 3 possible choices.

    A human player can also appoint characters to the Kingsguard through the personal interaction menu, which is located where the 'send gift' button is in vanilla.

    Assuming there are any suitable candidates. Kings who tore the realm on a daily basis will have difficulties filling the ranks.

    Choosing the son and heir of a powerful lord might lead to some drama...
    Going to war with the kin of your Kingsguard might lead to some more drama...

    Sorry, No spoilers!

    ------------
    [7] Maesters
    ------------
    Maesters have a special place in the mod, here are the main details:

    -The council position for court chaplains has been replaced by Maesters, only a character with the Maester trait can fill that position, so don’t be surprised if you try to change him and you have no candidates!

    -If you don't have a character with the Maester trait you can use the decision in the intrigue panel to send for one, he will arrive after a few days and automatically fill the council position.

    -One of your courtiers may at any time ask to train at The Citadel. If you agree they will go to the Citadel barony in Oldtown. After an average of 8-10 years there they will gain the Maester and bastard trait and be sent to a random court.

    -There is currently two new job for Maesters: one is 'tutor children'. You can only use this if you have some children between the ages of 6-15. This job had a chance of improving/lowering your children stats depending on the learning of your Maester. The other is 'Tend to wounded', with a chance of highering/lowering troop morale if you have troops raised.

    - At any one time the Citadel barony in Oldtown will have 16 characters called Archmaesters, representing the conclave of the Citadel. If there are less than 16 a random Maester in all Westeros will be selected to be promoted.

    -The King on the Iron Throne's Maester is called the Grand Maester, and he cannot be appointed. A new one is selected by the conclave when needed, selected from the Archmaesters and other Maesters at the citadel and is automatically moved to the King's court.

    ------------
    [8] Religion
    ------------
    Religion is a WIP, but priests do have a place in the mod at the moment:

    - There is a priest court position who has two job actions: Convert populace, which the North and Iron Islands are more resistant to, and the Perform Charity action from vanilla

    - If you dont have any candidates for this position you can use the 'Send for Holy Man' decision to obtain one.

    - Characters can request a religious education, and eventually gain a preist trait.

    FAITH OF THE SEVEN
    - You can send your daughters to the silent sisters
    - If the High Septon has at least 70% moral authority he can excommunicate characters
    - There is a council of the Most Devout, consisting of a group of Septons in the High Septon's court.
    - When the High Septon dies the Most devout will select his successor, usually from amongst their own ranks. The High Septon's liege can try and influence this election.

    RHLLOR
    - Rulers may be approached by a red priest who will try and convert them to the Red God
    - Pious followers may gain the favour of the red god, maybe even becoming his chosen one. The chosen one can unleash shadowy terrors upon their enemies...
    - R'hllor followers may now protect themselves, kin and vassals from murder plots and battle. This includes things like "Character dies in battle" but not executions or 1% critical fail event deaths.
    - Those Favored by R'hllor may now heal themselves or others.
    - The one chosen by R'hllor may claim Lightbringer and remove disfigurements and malformations from themselves or others.
    - You may also perform these actions through the personal interaction menu, however they will only show if you or the target meet the requirements. Zealous non-Rhllor non-vassals have a high chance to refuse.

    DROWNED GOD
    - Followers of the drowned god can offer up their prisoner's as a sacrifice
    - A follower of the Drowned God can go on reaving trips and may freely raid non-believers to gain gold and prestige. An ironborn King can also freely invade other lands
    - If the Old Gods DLC is enabled they can also use the concubine system to take salt wives.
    - Ironborn who are saved from drowning might have their life totally changed.

    OLD GODS
    - Followers of the Old Gods can acquire Greensight and maybe animal companions
    - Can commision a sepulcher/tomb (adapted from DLC runestone chain)
    - Followers of the Beyond-the-Wall Old Gods faith can freely raid

    -----------------
    [9] Night's Watch
    -----------------
    You may notice that the Night's Watch is playable, and has greater interaction with with the wildlings through the 'Great Ranging' CB, an 'on the wall' defender event perk, rebuilding the 19 Forts of the Watch and perhaps even a legendary horn to be discovered. if the Nightswatch falls to the widlings the lords of westeros will be able use the 'restore nightswatch' CB against them.

    One mechanic to speak of is that you can banish someone to the wall at will. The 'banish' diplomatic action gives you an extra event for men where you can send them to the wall, so if you want to send someone to the wall for no reason the usual tyranny penalties apply! However, people you can freely execute for whatever reason can be sent to the wall via decision at not tyranny cost.

    Find the Horn of Winter and keep the wildlings from uniting.

    Please do note the Nightswatch is WIP

    ----------------------
    [10] Westerosi Flavour
    ----------------------
    -Westerosi Climate
    Winter is coming... and might stay for several years... with his nasty modifiers.

    - Knights
    A valuable warrior of the faith will get the option to be knighted.

    - Valyrian swords
    Swords will be passed down from generation to generation, with small chances to lose/gain them in battle. Dynasts always have priority when inheriting swords.
    People with the "Obtain a Valyrian Steel Sword" ambition now have access to a special event chain.
    You can reforge your generic sword into one from a predefined list, you can mod this predefined list by;
    Renaming the sword in valyrian.csv and replacing the gfx in gfx/traits

    - Ironborn Culture
    Various events for finger-dance/gold-price/reaving.

    - Trial by combat
    Some of your prisoners might demand it, be prepared!

    - Trial by court
    You can investigate a vassal prisoner and decide if he is innocent or guilty

    - Restore Old King Harren's Castle
    Return this mighty stronghold to its former glory, you will need to be very rich to commence such a task.

    - City Watches
    You can appoint the commander of the city watch of King's Landing, Oldtown and Lannisport. You can do this by giving an unlanded male courtier with at least 10 martial the honourary title. You can revoke this by personal interaction. The commander of the Bloody Gate in the Vale can be appointed in the same way.

    -Special executions
    Boltons can flay their enemies, the Lord of the Eyrie use his moon door and the Northmen must swing the sword. Also dragon riders and the fire obsessed have some 'special' options...

    - Cyvasse!
    You can play cyvasse...

    - Mini-stagnating Westeros
    The fingers will never be more powerful then kings landing. Major powerhouses will probably stay the major powerhouses, referring to locations of course.

    -Targaryens
    Targaryens (and Blackfyres) get many unique events, including 'coin flips' and Valyrian legends. They can also inbreed freely.

    -Dragons
    Acquire rare petrified dragon eggs which trigger special events, maybe even resulting in becoming a Dragon rider...

    -Cadet Houses
    A worthy bastard or a bastard from a powerful dynasty can be granted lands and a name of his own.
    If you would like to pick your own cadet house name, simply rename the appropriate dynasty in Agot/common/dynastys. More information; topic2821.html

    -------------------
    [11] Form a kingdom
    -------------------

    Lord Paramount's are the vanilla King Tier, and the Iron Throne is a giant De Jure Empire (similar to vanilla HRE), yet the blob is less stable then the HRE, it can be easily broken by civil wars (read about the "megawars" mechanics).
    In addition you can create 8 more De Jure Empires, or in our case Kingdoms.

    There are 8 kingdoms you can create;

    1. Kingdom of the North.
    2. Kingdom of Mountain and Vale
    3. The Trident
    4. The Rock
    5. The Reach
    6. The Stormlands
    7. Dorne
    8. The Iron Isles

    -------------
    [12] Tourneys
    -------------
    The tournament system has been revamped, allowing any Lord to hold one. Characters now also have a 'medal tally' on their screens, keeping track of their tourney record.

    Here are the requirements for holding a tourney for each rank of Lord:

    GRAND TOURNEY: King/Lord Paramount
    - Not at war/mega-war
    - Has not held a tournament in the past 10 years
    - Follows the Seven religion
    - is not attending another tournament
    - No Lord Paramount or King in your realm is holding a tournament

    REGIONAL TOURNEY: High Lord
    Same as above with the additional conditions:
    - No High Lord in your region is holding a tournament
    - Your liege or your liege's liege is not at war

    LOCAL TOURNEY: Lord
    Same as above with the additional conditions:
    - No neighbouring Lord is holding a tournament
    - No Lord in your 'duchy' is holding a tournament
    - No Lord in a neighbouring 'duchy' is holding a tournament

    -------------------------
    [13] Personal Interaction
    -------------------------
    The 'Send Gift' diplomatic button has been replaced by a 'Personal Interaction' menu. When you select the 'Personal Interaction' button, a menu will appear in a few days where you can do the following things to the character:
    -PERSONAL Menu
    - Send a Gift
    - Insult
    - Visit her chambers
    - Bestow a Knighthood
    -DIPLOMATIC Menu
    - If you are their liege, command them to end their war
    - Appoint them to the Kingsguard
    - Nominate as your preferred High Septon
    - Grant a vacant Lord Paramountcy
    -ACTION Menu
    - Order a faceless man assasination against them
    - If you have bribed them, assign them a mission
    - Fire from a city watch
    - R'hllor Action list

    ----------------------
    [15] DLC Compatibility
    ----------------------
    The mod should run fine no matter which DLC is enabled/disabled.

    However some of the DLC does add content to the mod, here is an overview:

    The Sword of Islam: Adds only the ability for the player to have multiple wives as a character of the Valyrian religion.
    Legacy of Rome: Adds castration and blinding capability as well as a couple of flavour events. It does NOT add retinues.
    The Republic: Does allow republics to be formed and played, but there are currently no playable republics from the start in any scenario.
    The Old Gods: Enables the concubine system for Drowned God followers (Pre-DLC system will be used if not enabled). Also adds much flavour, including beserkers, adventurers, new rebels and runestones. Raiding is available for drowned god and wildlings even without this DLC.
    Ruler Designer: Fully compatible with the mod
    Dynasty Coat of Arms Pack 1/2: Not used
    Mongol Face Pack: Currently used for Dothraki, but only as a placeholder until new portraits are created for them
    Music Packs: The mod's soundtrack currently overrides them, however deleting "A Game of Thrones/music/songs.txt" will re-enable vanilla music
    African Unit Pack/Portraits: Used for the Summer Islanders
    Byzantine Unit Pack: Not used
    Mediterranean Portraits: Not used
    Russian Unit Pack/Portraits: Not used
    Norse Unit Pack/Portraits: Not used
    Sunset Invasion: Some things may happen if enabled...

    ------------
    [16] F.A.Q.
    ------------
    Q- Is Essos in the mod?
    A- No. We are still discussing if the Republic DLC recently released by Paradox would suit Essos or not.

    Q- My character has like 25 martial, why is he losing to guys with really low martial in duels?
    A- Martial ability, being a command rating, has no effect on duel outcomes. Traits are what determines this. The combat traits are the most important, whilst others like strong, weak and valyrian swords also contribute.

    Q- Why no Game of Thrones music?
    A- Adding the official Game of Thrones soundtrack to our mod would endanger our project. Using Intellectual Property is one thing, redistributing music that is currently FotM is another entirely! If you personally own the GoT Soundtrack however, there is no reason why you can't follow the following very helpful guide to adding music:

    http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/sho ... run-away!)
    NOTE: We do not endorse Piracy, if you don't own it and want it: Buy it!

    Q- Why are all High Septons called High Septon I?
    A- A new High Septon extends the practice of septons giving up their family names by renouncing any kind of individual name. This is due to the belief that the individual becoming High Septon is no longer a man but an avatar of the gods.

    Q- Are there supposed to be random Silent Sisters showing up in the Kingsguard/Nightswatch courts?
    A- Yes, the game populates courts with random females. If you move them away the game simply adds more in their place. we made them silent sisters so they cannot be married.

    Q- Fabricating claims isn't working/happening too often, what have you done to it?
    A- The chances of fabricating a claim have not been altered from vanilla, so having loads of claims or none at all in a certain period of time can happen.

    Q- Why are my wars ending inconclusively sometimes?
    A- Flicking through different dates and characters on the character selection screen may cause wars to end inconclusively instantly when the game starts. This is a vanilla bug, if it does happen simply restart without flicking.

    Q- Hodor?
    A- Hodor.

    Good job on keeping Robb alive through the whole mess ad having him marry Dany.


    A Frey on the Iron Throne?!? What is this madness??


    I played as King Arryn during Aegons conquest and actually managed to slay a dragon when i declared independence which was awesome but i still couldnt win. One thing im having trouble with is keeping my kings/lords paramount alive for more than 40 years. Maybe too many tourneys

    I may give it a try. Need to buy it first, though...

    I can't buy over internet, I don't have a credit card. When I buy games, I buy them old fashion way: getting my lazy ass up from the chair, going out to the shop and get it.

    I bought the game just for this purpose and of all things the mod doesn't work. To be fair the steam vanilla version didn't either but I was able to some magical folder fixing and got it to work in a roundabout way outside of steam. I still can't play the mod though which blows but the game itself is quite fun. I once became the King of Wales and Sicily and ended up seeing Scotland become the rules over all of southern Spain. And I mean all of it. He single handedly owned more of Spain than Castille, Aragorn, and Portugal put together.

    On a more related note, does the mod require any DLC? The guides are fairly vague about this, and any other installation matters honestly.

    Many thanks to the good folks down at the Graphics Workshop for the sig.

    The mod is pretty awesome, love playing as Aegon and conquering Westeros then provoking people to rebel and roasting them with a 600 strong army.
    "We all know whatmy brother would do. Robert would gallop up to the gates of Winterfell alone, break them with his warhammer, and ride through the rubble to slay Roose Bolton with his left hand and the Bastard with his right. I am not Robert. But we will march, and we will free Winterfell … or die in the attempt."

    Did you install the zip file or the automatic installer for the got mod? The game is at version 4.6 right now i believe.

    I'm not that good yet to try and provoke my vassals for fun and I haven't even tried playing as any Targaryens but I must see how it is when you have dragons.

    Aye, I downloaded the automatic installer and ran through the regular routine, but there has been no noticeable effect. There is no option to play the GoT mod but at the same time the game remains the same and doesn't crash.

    Started my 3 Part series with Robb Stark. War, Love, Betrayal and Death. How long can the Kings in The North stand against the Iron Throne!? Seeing as i have limited experience with CK2, i'd say not very long.

    It doesn't require any to play, but you need them to access certain features like raiding for ironborn(if you don't buy old gods the event system for raiding will still work), and republics when Essos comes out. I'm not sure why your installation isn't working.

    edit: Make sure you download the mod to My Documents/Paradox interactive/Crusader Kings 2/mod

    double edit: Do NOT tick any of the extra stuff in the installer, like the council fix. They are not updated for the current CK2 version and will crash you.
