About This Content

Crusader Kings II: Sons of Abraham is the fifth expansion for the critically praised strategy/RPG. Gameplay focuses on the Abrahamic religions; Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

Get your bishops appointed cardinals and tap the might of the Papacy, borrow money from the Knights Templar and send troublesome relatives off to live out their days in a monastery. Sons of Abraham also introduces the Jewish religion and allows you to recreate the Kingdom of Israel and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.

The expansion for the critically praised strategy/RPG Crusader Kings II explores one of the defining periods in world history in an experience crafted by Paradox Development Studio, the masters of Grand Strategy. Medieval Europe is brought to life in this epic game of knights, schemes, and thrones.

Main features:

  • Control the Papacy through the College of Cardinals
  • Ask the Pope for money and favors
  • Play as a Jewish lord and restore the kingdom of Israel
  • Interact with the Holy Orders and see their influence grow
  • Pick sides in Islam as a rationalist Mutazili or an opposing Ashari

  • Go on a pilgrimage to one of the holy places
  • Experience hundreds of new religious events

This is 3rd most important DLC to pick up for CK2

This DLC gives you a significant advantage when playing. You can borrow 300g from the Jews, then expel them for 200g more. At the start of the game you instantly have 500g.

Bishop/Cardinal mechanics are basicly worthless.
-Biggest problem I have is that the Pope is always perfect, and all your bishop vassals will pay tax to him.
-Pope will give you money regardless if you are kin, given you have Pope decided who the next bishops are (doesn't matter). Leave your councillor bishop improving relations with pope, all game. You will make 5000g easy.
-minor actual control over the Papal state. Dynasty member will give you the same amount as non-dynasty with the same traits.

Religious events are basicly 30gold for 30 piety, and 20% chance of drunkard or 30% +1learning.

Jewish characters could be fun to play, but you can't borrow and expel Jews for 500g... making them weaker then any state in the game with a "modern/reformed" religion

Jews are boring, Pope favours are op. However the Demon Spawn event is extremely epic.

The meter does not accuratly display the correct level of difficulty while playing as Jewish IMO. It should be all the way up. You have no friends or other Jews anywhere close. While the ability to challenge yourself by playing as a Jew is awesome, and the added options this expansion offers are nice, I can not justifiy for the amount it costs to purchase. Wait for a steam sale at 85% off!

Impressive. A game company used the word: "Israel". That takes some courage.

If your friends don't have this and you are hosting a game it will crash their games when you start the game.

EDIT: For people who have not found this helpful I'm glad you're willing to support something that is inherently broken. It's a good DLC for singleplayer but the crashing in multiplayer makes it worthless as I want to play with my friends with this.

Runs with a suggestion of the "Khazar origin theory" as historically accurate while also including anti-popes and Jewish merchants who charge excessive interest. Everything provocative one could want in DLC for Crusader Kings II.
