    I think they happen way too early :D

    Re: New Portraits?

    I suppose you could create some yourself, using Crusader Kings 2's custom ruler editor for instance.
    That way you can get both the young and the old look and it basically covers the same cultures.

    Re: What "house rules" do you follow?

    You can't in MTW2, war is initiated by an attack. You can however declare 'do X or we will declare war', which I think gives you less of a reputation hit, when you then do declare war.

    Also, the client rulers are recruited in the cities - and only with that building, so once you upgrade, you have to 'reinstall' a regime (build it all over again) when the client ruler dies.
