The think to do, is not to be afraid to restart several times, learning something new each time.

Here at ACD, we all pee the same color.

Which is great advice - or you could just go with the hand fate deals - barring a military disaster you can recover from most things - I once modelled my firstborn with all the right decisions, he inherited his fathers martial skills and his mothers spy skills - he would have been an Italian Henry 5th - when he was 9 my chancellor threw him out of the window to his death

I cried, I laughed - great game

I was talking strictly while learning the game.  there is a lot to learn.  Also matters what kind of game your playing.  King vs vassal.  Republic vs kingdom.  Do you want to marry your way to power and or conquest.  The bigger your empire gets, the harder it is to keep everyone happy.

hi there - little update (i'm enjoying this game very much!):  :)

i'm still into my first tutorial with Castile as ... ahhh, you know him alright! ok, i wanted to recommend this ck2 tutorial even when it's not much liked by the paradox community. BUT, when everything went smooth and fair with my war in the Canaries and the hints dropped to kill off my siblings... alright easy going. i even had some non-tutorial fun with some awkward vassal - i made him my court clown and after that i killed him... ahhh, now i have a kill list of 4!!! wow! fun fun! BUT: suddenly the tutorial was finished and 'now i know everything and please keep on playing' - haha... the ai/tutorial left me with 2 holy wars at my door and lots of other mess to clean up! not nice!

fun fun times!  ;D (true, really!!!)

with that... i'm off, still feeling tired from a long cycle ride today... let's have a cold one and check out my court and vassals...


cheers!
(oh, and the steam summer sale is up... not?!)  8)

chem!

ps: @undercovergeek - of course, this time i used the mercenaries(fleets only) for my war overseas... alright, good job!  :bigthumb:

Excellent - it took me a good while to realise you could raise merc navy fleets and helped greatly with the Parma invasion of Barcelona and eastern Spain

hi all.  :peace:

i'm into a very relaxed affair as king Murchard of Mumu who should be ambitious enough to go for the throne to become king of Ireland.
for a few days now i'm trying to make progress while learning the ins and outs without the help of that 'friendly' tutorial AI...
ahhh, ignorance is bliss! i wouldn't give my horse and my castle for that ironman mode - i rather play along and revert my mistakes by reloading older saves.  8)

i also wish i was into creative writing. just from my 'time travelers' perspective this game is pure gold - a part of my prologue would read something like this:

Quote
Ye Chymist Childe his Life and Travells Bet’n ye yeares 769 and 1453:
Of Whither He Voyag’d, Where He Stay’d, Whom He Sawe, and What He Learnt.

magic, right?!  :nerd:
so long folks, enjoy your sunny sunday evening.

beers!

Very cool, chemkid!  Keep us posted. 


I will always be too much of a pansy to play ironman mode, in any game.  :whew:
