Crusader Kings II - Paradox Entertainement (02/12)

Also worth noting with the map, the eastern edge in cut off and not complete like the other sides. We may get China at some point and put the two halves of the map together.
 
So there are interviews happening or being released now and one of the things being mentioned is the new Tech system. It is so much better and flavorful.

"Technology in Crusader Kings III is based around individual innovations split between different eras that trigger with set years. These can differ from culture to culture and range from ones unlocking new types of buildings or men-at-arms, to granting new succession types or increasing your ruler’s domain limit. Contact with other cultures can speed up the acquisition of certain innovations while the Cultural head – the ruler holding the most counties of a given culture – can also designate one Innovation as that culture’s Fascination, greatly reducing the time it takes to unlock it. Overall, the new approach to this system feels much more involved and lets you better target specific improvements for your realm, the long unlock time adding extra weight to your decisions".

I'm very excited to see the new culture mechanics and the culture dev diaries.
 
So, I don't know if this is a very used strategy for the byzzies, but I discovered that before you change the concil law to "concil war declarations", you can use it to start multiple wars at the same time

For example, starting in 769 AD as the byzantine empire, I declare war on Bulgaria for strymon, on all the slavic states in greece and in Cilicia, then switch to concil war declaration on the following day. Such a move allows a faster consolidation of power, especially if you allow the defensive pacts to be formed in your game rules, because on that way you can only grab two targets before being stopped for years.
 
Is it bad if I say the only thing I cared about in this Dev Diary is the fact they've improved the way Heraldry works in their game?
 
So I am thinking of doing an AAR in India once ck3 comes out. The goal being to unite India, keep india religiously diverse so that India would be filled with the different hindu faiths, Jain faiths and some buddhist faiths while trying to keep out the Islamic conquerers. Then maybe just maybe trying to make central asia buddhist as I set up buffer states; probably the hardest goal :p

I do wonder which of the Hindu faiths would be interesting for this run, alas we don't know what their tenets are.
 
Looks like they've made Celtic Christianity its own separate religion, at least on a de facto basis. May not be historically accurate, but I can handle some artistic license. It certainly wouldn't be the first creative liberty they've taken.

I didn't see that anywhere, was it in images I've missed?

Also I do think Celtic Christianity is always a constantly revisited topic in terms of the extant of its existence so it's not a big deal really.

It was from the IGN press release videos.

No, it's in a forum post summarizing and detailing what we currently know about the game's tenets and religions.
I got it from the IGN videos. :) I am vyshan on the PDX forums btw.


The tenets of Insular are: Monasticism,Vows of Poverty, Pastoral Isolationism. Pastoral Isolationism makes them righteous to other christian faiths. Insular also has polygamy.

I remember you mentioning that, I do wonder if you don't mind me asking why you have such a different name.

Hello, sir, I haven't seen you upload new comments for a bit.

Do you think they'll have lots of different start dates for CK III, or just one like on Imperator: Rome and Victoria II?
