The mod is just HIP. I've never said the "Isma'ili" religion before, and I've definitely never seen Sunni get glomped so hard in north Africa and Arabia.

I’m using viceroyal duchies for my Roman run rn and oh yeah it’s such a hassle. Does make it impossible for any vassal to get any more power than you want though.

HIP makes CK2 playable imo. It basically is a full sequel to the game. Every possible feature is expanded upon, fleshed out, given more depth, and made more historically accurate.

This is probably small-time for most people, but, in all my time with Stellaris, I don't think I've ever been so devastating as a non-xenophobic race. This capital world had close to 90 pops on it before I got tired of moving my fleets and just let them sit there.

It's a well known phenomenon that Paradox gamers, like League of Legends players, actually hate their favorite games with a passion. Have you ever had fun playing a Paradox game? If you've been keeping track of me kvetching about the Byzantines for the last while, you know that I sure haven't.

Paradox games are actually a great source of relaxation for me at times. I find them soothing.

Not related but im thinking of playing as Communist Ratmen in Stellaris.

That's the mount and blade game right? What's that to do with paradox?
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

Bannerlord has been mentioned and talked about before in this thread, neither me or any of the other OP's ever really took issue with it due to the previous games being published by paradox. So guess its an honorary discussion topic on these threads lol

Mostly its talked about in the general gaming thread tho

In an interesting turn of events, it turns out the Kaiser had more than enough troops to defeat the Byzantines invading Sicily, but instead of trying to fight them head-on, the bastard instead wasted thousands of troops to attrition sieging a completely unrelated Byzantine county as the Byzantine force plowed through all my stuff. I have lost my ancestral homeland because the Kaiser is a complete and utter smoothbrain.

I now think I'm more mad at the Kaiser than I am at the Basileus. And I'm really mad at the Basileus. Maybe I should swear fealty to the empire of Brittania instead, I don't think I've ever had issues with those guys.

What if I told you Brittania was actually Prydain and the county of Middlesex has Irish culture?
