CK2 Dev Diary #16: Man's Inhumanity To Man



Hello and welcome back to another DD about <Secret DLC>! If all is going to plan you should be reading this while I am on my third, and sadly final, week of vacation, so I may or may not show up to answer questions. For this DD we are getting back to the core values of <Secret DLC>: Death and Suffering!

Being a prisoner is never a fun experience, and frankly, with <Secret DLC> it only gets worse. We have added several fairly unpleasant ways to interact with your captives:

  • Humiliate. The prisoner is degraded in some fashion; such as being tarred and feathered, or forced to do a “walk of shame”. This also causes them to lose prestige and be generally looked down on.
  • Torture. The prisoner is caused a certain amount of pain; such as being whipped, or stretched on the rack. May cause them to become Stressed or even Depressed, and can cause you to lose the Kind trait.
  • Mutilate. Only available to rulers with certain traits, such as Cruel or Impaler, this causes the permanent loss of a body part. May lead to you becoming Cruel if you are not already, and can cause them to gain Stressed or even Lunatic.
  • Bad poetry. Rulers with the Poet trait may deploy their very worst poems against a prisoner. While a comparatively mild punishment, it nonetheless has a slight chance to drive them mad.
  • Consume. Rulers who are either Possessed or Lunatic and also have the Cannibal modifier may simply eat their prisoners. If you haven’t disabled fantasy content, this may lead to you “gaining the power” of your victim.

All of these options, besides Consume, release the victim afterwards as they are considered to be their punishment, and while you choose the category you do not choose the exact method. Needless to say, your former prisoner will not think kindly of you after any of these punishments, and in the more extreme cases their close family may also be outraged.

Of course, sometimes a mere punishment is not enough and you simply have to Execute your prisoner. Well, we have added content for this eventuality too! You still simply press the Execute button, as before, but the actual execution method employed is chosen from a list based on your location/culture/religion/traits as well as the imprison reason you have on your prisoner, their religion/gender/traits, and things. Different execution methods come with different death reasons, and as you may have heard in an earlier DD, different death sounds. We have 31 execution methods, including Hanging, Crushing, Sawing, and Bear. It’s all in an easily moddable file too, just in case modders think we have been insufficiently creative.



I should also mention that with the 2.6 patch it is no longer possible to escape from House arrest unless someone with the Intrigue focus breaks you out, so if for some reason you want to be nice to your prisoners they are no longer virtually guaranteed to escape.

Since Death is a big theme for <Secret DLC>, we have also added several reactions events to the death of your lovers, friends, and rivals. For the first two, these can result in things like you turning to drink, finding a new friend, taking comfort in the arms of another, or finding a keepsake of them. For the latter, you may miss having a rival and start a new feud, resolve to become a better person, or if you are a particular type of person you might sneak out and desecrate their corpse. We don’t judge!





That’s all for now. Next week I’ll be back at work and writing these “live” again, so I’ll decide the topic closer to the time. It's quite possible the subject will be cats though.

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>.

Recensies

“...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

Over dit spel

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

Started as a simple duke in the Holy Roman Empire. Work my way up to become regent and spymaster. Abduct my liege and gain control. Crown myself Holy Roman Emperor. Declare war on France, cause you know... France... Accidentally slay young William the conqueror in hand to hand combat. Game said "Good riddance." 10/10 would change the fate of Britain again.

Crusader Kings II is mijn favoriete spel van Paradox.
Ik heb er nochtans al heel wat achter de kiezen: Drie versies van Europa Universalis, twee van Victoria, de eerste van Crusader Kings, drie versies van Hearts of Iron, War of the Roses, en nog wat kleinere titels... Ze hebben mij allemaal kunnen bekoren, en sommigen reken ik bij de beste spellen die ik ooit heb gespeeld.
Dat Crusader Kings II er boven uit steekt wil dus wel wat zeggen.
Eerst en vooral is de indeling van het spel erg goed. Een mooie kaart, verschillende interessante instapmomenten in de geschiedenis, een praktische en aantrekkelijke interface.
Het spel zelf is voor mij prima. Paradox maakt diepe strategische spellen waar je moet plannen voor stappen die pas jaren later gebeuren. De gevechten stellen niet zo veel voor, wat jammer is maar ook begrijpelijk. Dit is nu eenmaal geen 'Total War'-game en de sterkte ligt vooral in de vele keuzes die je kan maken.
Waar het spel écht in uitblinkt is het uitgangspunt. Je speelt niet met een land in Crusader Kings II. Je bent een familie.
Het leuke daaraan is, dat je veel evolutie kan hebben. Starten als koning, of als graaf, of met een lagere rang... Het heeft zo z'n gevolgen. Het stijgen in rang is een echte uitdaging, die me erg boeit.
Maar ook als je eenmaal koning bent (of als koning start) zijn er nog uitdagingen. Waarom geen koning worden van TWEE landen? Of vijf? Of proberen om keizer te worden?
Bovendien is het perfect mogelijk om je land kwijt te raken. Door erfopvolging, door een invasie, door een opstand... Dan zoek je toch gewoon een ander land waar je koning kan worden. :-D
Ook andere uitdagingen zijn voor handen: Welke godsdienst krijgt het voor het zeggen in je land? (Je kan dit ook proberen te veranderen) Hoe integreer je andere culturen? Hoeveel belastingen leg je op? Hou je je ondergeschikten onder de knoet of geef je die verantwoordelijkheden? Wie van je familieleden mag je opvolgen eens je sterft? (Je leeft dan gewoon door in de persoon die je opvolgt) Hoe voed je je kinderen op? Enz, enz...
Het spel is erg uitgebreid en veelzijdig, net als de andere titels van Paradox. Maar dan met dat tikkeltje meer. Ook het uitgebreide DLC-pakket is erg interessant, en brengen soms een grote meerwaarde.
Een aanrader.

Dit is een erg leuk spel om te spelen als je van RTS en simulatie houd.
Want dat Crusader Kings 2 wel.
Je kan verschillende jaartallen kiezen om in de geschiedenis te beginnen en dat maakt het ook erg leuk, omdat je dan eigenlijk de geschiedenis kan veranderen.
Je hebt ook een familie maar dat is meer simulatie want je kan niet de poppetjes op het scherm zien alleen hun portret.
Je kan je kinderen ook verschillende "traits"geven waardoor mensen van hun gaan houden of juist niet.
Dat is de keuze de je zelf kunt maken eigenlijk.
En je hebt nattuurlijk ook de verschillende geloven; Jain, Boedhisme Hindoeïsme, Christendom,Islam,Hebreeuws en de oude geloven zoakls Slavishe geloven,Baltische geloven Noorse geloven en Afrikaanse geloven.
Dus ded keuze is helemaal aan jou.

Probably the best game in it's genre. You can play as any count, duke, king or emperor that lived during the time period and elevate your dynasty to become rulers of Europe through intrigue, marriage and war. However, just conquering the known world isn't as easy as you might think. You need claims to conquer other kingdoms and even when you take them over you need to deal with your new vassals (who might dislike having a foreign liege). Crusader Kings is a unique game which might be hard to get into, but when you do it's one of the best games out there.

i tried the free days. didnt even went longer then 4 minutes.
to much going on. to little treu help in what needs to be done, this game is
to big for the little help you get to understand gamemechanics,.
for me this is NOT a game worth noting anything for.

i will not recommend this game, it is not a game where you can easily get into, and there isnt a single dime i wanna spend into a game where the mechanics are TO hard to understand,
i might be a dumbass but this game is a NO GO for me!!!
