Pretty interesting interpretation of medieval time. Although CK2 is better in every part, worth playing if on sale.

The King of Sicily went heretical and rebelled against himself, the King of Sicily, which in turn caused a massive revolt across my kingdom. Was unable to put down said revolt and the King's Grandson went on to defeat his grandfather and claim the title King of Sicily for himself.

I still have no idea how any of that was possible but I'm having too much fun to care.

i played crusader kings 2 year ago and saw potenial albeit with probs, i got this on sale and while not everybody's cup of tea i was nicely surprised! I united Ireland after many rebattles with Munster lol and then stabilised economy infrastructure and built a castle in the high king chieftain's home of meath haha the traits seem to be more effecive than in CK2 and game seems more balanced, enjoyable longterm game.
