There's an option to start off married and to start off with children.

Yes but aside from marriage these are bad options because your children do not start off with traits so if you're a Sayyid your spawned children will not be, nor will they have a chance at having genetic traits like strong or imbecile. And regardless of how old you are your children will always be at the minimum age possible so if you are 35 with 3 kids they will be 0, 1, and 2 years old.

So yeah Ruler designer is bad.

Very bad. Who ever thought it was a good idea to give us wide and open customization options but than prevent us from actually using them by adding an age cost should reexamine his carrier as a game designer.
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.

So I’m allied with Brigante, but he has decided to ally with my enemy Votadinia. I want to declare war on the little jerk, and unite all of scotland, but I cant as long as Brigante blocks me.

Well, I guess it cant be helped. He’s just currently the top dog in northern England. So I guess, Ill have to ally with the southern tribes to distract him from heading north. Perhaps a deal with the strongest doomstack army Teaxalia would remedy things.

Everything is that browny greyish colour because thats the colour of the "The Iron Throne" Kingdom in the got mod.


Here is a screenshot of the realms inside the Iron Throne, bit more colourful. I like it but it makes the water look a bit weird when you zoom out, not sure if thats just to do with the got mod or not
