Development Diary #13: Pagans, advisors, and warrior women



Hello and welcome back to another dev diary about <Secret DLC>! One day we will actually announce this DLC and I’ll be able to use the proper name, but that day is not today! Anyway, right now I am here to tell you about some extra stuff we have made for Pagans, which will be part of the free 2.6 patch (of course, you still need The Old Gods to play as a pagan), and our new Female Advisor events. So, uh, actually this DD is really about 2.6 content and not <Secret DLC>, really, but anyway, onwards!

First of all, Defensive Pagans now have the ability to summon bands of Devout Warriors if they are the primary defender against an enemy of a different religion at the cost of 200 piety. Overall this is rather like the Raise Tribal Army decision and gives Defensive Pagans some extra punch when attacked.

Next, Defensive Pagans also have a new decision which can be used while at peace, and not more often than every 10 years: Ancestor Worship. This allows you to ask your ancestors for help or advise with some part of your life, perhaps you want triumph on the battlefield, maybe you want your realm to Prosper, or perhaps you are just lonely? In any case, once you have decided what it is you want, you must decide what you will offer up to get your request heard, and can range from offering up your eye or a human sacrifice to a more modest feast or carving a simple idol. With the sacrifice made, hopefully you see some kind of result in the not so distant future. Although, skeptics might point out that there’s no evidence the ancestors actually did anything and you may simply be giving them credit for a happy coincidence, that isn’t the kind of thought a pious man ought to have.



here we wish for affection and offer up a feast

With Defensive Pagans covered, let’s move into their more Offensive cousins, the Norse. The first change here is relatively simple, and some of you guessed it from the Trait icons I showed in an earlier DD, but there are now two improved versions of the Viking trait: Ravager and Sea King. These are gained from continuing to sack holdings while raiding after the Viking trait has been gained and come with larger bonuses.



A couple of minor yet neat changes:

  • The Norse may now also gain a trait similar to Crusader when taking part in Great Holy Wars, called Valhalla-bound.
  • Norse Culture will no longer split into into Swedish/Danish etc when it’s part of a powerful Norse realm (which I seem to remember was said to be the case long ago but doesn’t seem to have been implemented) where the ruler either has 2 kingdom tiles or an empire title, or if the faith has been reformed and the Fylkir is Norse. On a related note, Pictish, Old Saxon, and Visigothic cultures will also no longer split/change when part of a powerful realm or their head of religion is of their culture.

Finally, Norse religion rulers now have a decision to appoint female characters in their realm with good Martial skill and appropriate traits as Shieldmaidens. These warrior women can act as bodyguards and/or can be set as commanders for your armies regardless of your gender laws. Shieldmaidens have a number of events relating to both their actions in battle and their training for said battles, and if a player happens to end up as a landed lady they can experience the Shieldmaiden content from the other side.



Now leaving Pagans behind, but staying with cool women, we’ve added a couple of ways to get more female advisors. Firstly, close relatives of a ruler with high stats may ask to be given a job. Secondly, a talented woman may show up in your court and offer her services to you. In either case if you accept they will take up a council position, but you will get an opinion penalty with your vassals - if you have Conclave the size of the penalty is reduced if you have increased your Gender Equality laws. These events do not fire if your gamerules/gender laws/religion/culture allow women to be appointed normally, since in that case you could simply hire them if you want to.



That’s all for this week, next week Doomdark will talk about the future of CK2 beyond <Secret DLC>.

Development Diary June 28th - Maimed!



Hello all, it’s time for another DD about ZombieInvasion <Secret DLC*>! Today we’ll take a look at what we’ve done to the Maimed trait. Well, we’ve removed it! People without <Secret DLC> can still be Maimed, of course, but the lucky owners of <Secret DLC> will instead receive more specific injuries, such as: One-handed, One-legged, One-Eyed, Disfigured, or Mangled (this represents severe trauma to the torso, mostly). As well as allowing more specific wounds and flavor, this has allowed us to remove the Health penalty from most of these traits (Mangled still has one though). Instead, when you receive a maiming-type injury you will also receive the Severely Injured trait, which has some health and stat penalties, but will be lost after some time has passed. Afterall, while losing a hand is certainly not an enjoyable process, you do eventually heal up and can be perfectly healthy besides the missing appendage. Also, if anyone is feeling creative, please suggest interesting effects for these new traits - we do of course have some penalties on them, but I worry they are a little dull, so fire away and I may shamelessly steal your ideas.

Since both One-eyed and Disfigured affect the faces of characters, we have added a lot of new portrait props to reflect this. Here is a small sample of what you might see ingame:


We have also added several events relating to life with missing body parts:

a disfigured ruler holds a masquerade ball


the loss of a hand is a severe blow to a famous warrior


That’s all for now, next week I am not certain which DD we will show, either I will talk about some extra Pagan features we’ve added, or Doomdark will give you some of his thoughts about CK2. It will be a surprize!

*= DLC contains no zombies

Рецензии

“...playing is winning, and there’s something quite satisfying about leading your house to power and glory through whatever means you can, for as long as you can.”
9,5/10 – Strategy Informer

“In short, Crusader Kings II is a majestic feudal sandbox, the greatest generator of hilarious medieval soap opera ever created and Paradox Interactive’s best title to date.”
90/100 – IncGamers

“It's perfectly possible to have made a few too many enemies, anger the Pope and find most of Europe out for your blood. That's really what makes the game so damn fun.”
9/10 – Destructoid

Об этой игре

The Dark Ages might be drawing to a close, but Europe is still in turmoil. Petty lords vie against beleaguered kings who struggle to assert control over their fragmented realms. The Pope calls for a Crusade to protect the Christians in the Holy Land even as he refuses to relinquish control over the investiture of bishops - and their riches. Now is the time for greatness. Expand your demesne and secure the future of your dynasty. Fill your coffers, appoint vassals, root out traitors and heretics, introduce laws and interact with hundreds of nobles, each with their own agenda.
A good lord will always need friends to support him. But beware, as loyal vassals can quickly turn to bitter rivals, and some might not be as reliable as they seem... Stand ready, and increase your prestige until the world whispers your name in awe. Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?
Crusader Kings II explores one of the defining periods in world history in an experience crafted by the masters of Grand Strategy. Medieval Europe is brought to life in this epic game of knights, schemes, and thrones...

Key features:

  • Start a game at any point between 1066 and 1337 and play until 1453
  • Pick a Christian lord and make sure his dynasty survives as you play a succession of his descendants through the ages
  • Gain Prestige for every successive character you play, furthering the glory of your Dynasty
  • Expand your feudal domain - and keep it from falling apart
  • Unravel the plots of your courtiers and vassals, each with their own opinions and agendas
  • Take up the Cross and fight the Moor, the Heathen and the Heretic.
  • Defend against the onslaught of the Mongol Horde
  • Struggle with the Pope for control of the bishops
  • Relive the Middle Ages with up to 32 other players in a competitive multiplayer mode

This game has an extremely poorly designed user interface and tutorial system. Do not waste any money or time on this game. After eventually learning the game from a friend I spent several hours (mostly boring hours) becoming the king of Walse. Have concured Walse my King died and instead of my heir becoming king of Walse he gave away all the land I had just spent my hole afternoon concering to his brothers. What. The. Hell. Biggest waste of time since Dark Souls II. Once Paradon have leanrt what 'design' is let me know.

Игра прекрасна, однако есть один момент который просто нельзя упускать из виду. У ИИ отсутсвует так скажем фактор "РАЗУМНОСТИ ВАШУ МАТЬ".

Вы в определённый момент игры будете замечать его, а именно тогда, когла глупый ИИ начинает объявлять войну.
Приведу 2 простых примера:
1) -О великий Кайзер Священно Римской Империи король Франции проигрывает в священном джихаде, Париж вот вот падёт. Может стоит помочь братьям по вере?-
-Нет, я лучше объявляю АнтиПапу и нападу на Францию что бы завоевать графство Логранфер, и мне плевать ведь я ИИ.

2) - О король нашей державы Астуриас мы все твои верные вассалы, требуем независимости, немедленно! Если ты откажешься мы начнём войну против тебя!
-Но парни, постойте 10000 Мусульман стоят у наших границ и вот вот нападут на нас, они не пощадят никого.-
-Бейте ублюдка!-

Один жирный сосед узурпирует все титулы твоего родного брата, отхапывая затем в войне половину твоих территорий? Другой отбирает все твои прибрежные территории, лишая флота? Все вассалы и соседи-бывшие друзья жаждут твоей скорейшей смерти потому что ты не умеешь махать мечом? Забей и иди бухать со своим единственным вассалом, который имеет более-менее положительное мнение о тебе.

Играешь такой за однопровинчатого ирландского минора
@
Завоевываешь все маленькие графства на острове
@
Остаешься на острове в гордом одиночестве,основываешь свое королевство
@
Отправляешься завоевывать сначала Шотландию,чуть позже Уэльс и в конце и Англию,при этом забираешь земли у их бывших владельцев и раздавая своим "верным" вассалам
@
~1000 год
@
Создаешь Британскую империю,становишься одной из "сверхдержав" средневековья
@
Франция,которая до недавнего времени главенствовала в Европе и считалась самой сильной страной в мире,видит в нас своего геополитического врага и пользуясь правилом -"если драка неизбежна,то бить надо первым",нападает на Британию и высаживает все свои войска на острова
@
Наши силы примерно равны
@
В одной из битв французы терпят сокрушительное поражение,теряют половину армии и терпят поражение
@
После этого постоянно между этими двумя сверхдержавами постоянно происходят вооруженные столкновения,в которых Британия всегда одерживает победу
@
Присоединяю к своей империи Скандинавию,Германию,северные области Франции

С запада приплывают странные корабли
@
С них высаживаются 100.000 ацтеков
@
Собираешь всю свою армию и армии всех своих вассалов,а также наемников из дальних земель
@
И все равно всасываешь по количеству армии Ацтекам
@
Как не сложно догадаться из предыдущего пункта наша величественная армия с позором проигрывает этим варварам из Америки
@
Подлые Французы,наши заклятые враги,пользуясь моментом нападают на нас
@
Каждый день теряешь тысячи солдат в битвах,в стране растет невовольство,повсюду мятежы,в стране голод,кошки жрут собак,вобщем хаос и безумие
@
Наши "верные" вассалы требуют отставки императора
@
Начинается гражданская война
@
Умудряешься воевать на три фронта,правда везде проигрываешь,но это не важно
@
Все заморские теретории отделяются от империи
@
С каждым днем император все больше и больше теряет рычаги власти,а влиятельные вассалы наоборот получают
@
Конечно все это не может длиться вечно,и императора все-таки свергают,его лишают власти,отбирают все земли и золото
@
Самый влиятельный вассал,как только становится императором,сразу подписывает мирные договоры с Ацтеками и Французами,Ацтекам отдают Ирландию и Уэльс,Франции - Англию
@
Империя развалилась,от нее осталась только Шотландия
@
Происходит катастрофа - династия,основавшая великую империю осталась нисчем,а сама империя развалилась
@
Лже-король объявляет амнисию и выдает вам землю на севере Шотландии(вот что значит королевская щедрость,боже храни короля,♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥)

P.S. А если серьезно,то это пожалуй самая вариативная стратегия из всех,в которые я играл.Я вам рассказал только одну историю которая произошла со мной,а таких может быть тысячи.Вобщем отличная стратегия,но довольно медитативная(я лично отношу это к плюсам,хотя не всем нравится),поэтому не для всех.

Let's set things straight: this is one of the best Paradox game and probably my favourite one since it covers a period of time I like a lot and since it's less complex and tactical than other Paradox. It has got, instead, a great RPG component. An amazing mix which makes the game very addicting.

Why the negative review? Because this game alone is almost nothing. It lets you play just a very small amount of countries. If you want the full game you must buy the DLCs... nothing new you could think. Well, the problem is there is a HUGE amount of DLCs and after years from the publishing of the main game they're still developing new one. They're getting always more useless, DLC after DLC, while the price gets higher (some of the last costs half the main game...LOL).
As a loyal and old Paradox fan i get frustrated not only because they're obviously trying to get any cents out of my wallet, but mainly because after 4 (FOUR!) years I still can't enjoy the full game: whenever you start a new campaign (and a CK game can be pretty long and time consuming) they announce a new DLC with new features and new rules and you feel like you're playing an useless match and feel like abandoning it and wait for the new DLC. Problem is: when you get it, they have already announced a new one.
Also, every DLC comes with patches which totally change the rules of the game and you have to learn them again and again and again. It's like playing an early access game, but I've always hated those and I would have avoided it if I had known.

Basically they're policy with games lately has become: "let's publish an incomplete game and let's charge a lot with DLCs if they want to play its full version" and they're not the only company to do it, but when they finished the game they started to make useless DLCs (there's one of fantasy history in which aztecs invade Europe... which is not a great thing in a game of such historic realism) and to change the rules to worse just to justify new DLCs. They're literally to the point in which a great game is turning into a bad one.

Saddest thing for a loyal customer like me was the DLC to convert CK2 games into EU4 games to continue a campaign there. So I, a huge fan who bought all of your games, get rewarded for this by being forced to pay 10 euro just for a crappy converter if I want to "fuse" together the Paradox games I possess? Nice policy Paradox...

To give you an idea, today you need 165€ just to play the full game (without even considering the massive amount of graphic and soundtrack DLCs or the EU4 converter) and DLCs are still coming out. The game can be good but its not worth half of that price.

You better wait till they start working on CK3 and stop squeezing money out of this game. Then maybe they'll lower the price of a 4 years old game (prices are still the same even for the main game) and you can buy a cheap package with all the DLCs.
It's not worth a penny before that. You can trust someone who loved this and other Paradox games.

The new changes are horrible and I hate this game with a passion now.

I have over 1,000 hours of this game, and I would play it every day after coming home from school, raid kingdoms and villages as the Vikings and other pagans... Now that was fun.

This new interface and "the Conclave" decision is just... awful. Ruined it all for me. What ruined it more was the "shadowed retreat" update, where your troops run away, like they do in Europa Universalis IV. Pure annoyance and bullscheisse.

BULL. SCHEISSE.

It was one of my favorite games. Now it is has been reduced to a shell of its former glory and splendor. The changes have irrevocably hurt the game. It shouldnt be this way. :(

PS The last good dlc was the Old Gods.
