    CK2 MP Game Thread: Vikings do not Sow

    Grab your beards people.




    Start date: Sunday 18th. 1700 UTC, 1300 EST, 1800 London time or w/e you eurofags are using now.

    Setup: Game will be starting in the early middle ages with players assuming the role of a count somewhere within the Norse culture area. This will allow players to conquer a couple counties, raise a suitable heir, and get some buildings down before the viking invasions event fires (it usually takes ~1 generation) and gives everybody free shipyards to raid and plunder. There's virtually no difference between the counties, as all of them only have a single tribe holding. Very few have temples, which are essentially worthless, and we're forced into elective gavelkind as tribal rulers anyway so any large demense is gonna be difficult to hold. So basically pick a house whose heraldry appeals to you. Make sure you're on the coast though. Of note, both AI Sweden and AI Denmark are ridiculously aggressive in this time period, so expect to be subjugated early. Once we have galleys, the fun begins, and we can start establishing our kingdoms where we wish (or try and become king of denmark/sweden and feudalize, it's up to you). Of note, co-operative raiding is a thing in CK2. 2 or more players can join forces and raid the same province, and the game will split the loot between them. So there is reason to be nice to each other, at least to start.

    A quick note for new/interested players. CK2 seems daunting, but you don't actually have to know a lot to play or have fun. I had no idea wtf I was doing at the start of last campaign. If you're interested, come try it out for a session or two. Unlike Eu4 popping in an out of an established game is easy, as there are many many minor houses or cadet branches of the major houses than you can play as. And if you end up having enough fun, you can join us on a regular basis.

    House rules:
    -No truce breaking with players
    -No chain stabbing to death players for the first 3 sessions, then the knives can come out.

    Rewards will be save-edited in for AARs (I figure 200 prestige is fair)

    The winner is determined by the highest end of game score of a player dynasty. If a player dies, the score of that dynasty is recorded, and they will restart as a new dynasty with a new score. Scores are not cumulative. So if say, House X is wiped out with a score of 100k, player X can restart somewhere else but he cannot add to that score. But, if no other dynasty gets > 100K by the end of the game, player X still wins.

    Player list:
    Bentguru - House Hrafn
    Joe - House Stafr
    Walrus - HOUSE GUT OF GOATLAND
    Nobody Holme - Sverker af Aland of Aland
    Hiro Cor - House Skjoldung, Skane line
    Elriche - House Skjoldung, Slesvig line
    Hopper - House av Alfheim

    *updated with dynastic names rather than specific players.

    Dibs on Iceland.

    Not sure if I can actually make the 18th, it's my dad's birthday. Should be though as I need to be back home by then anyway.

    Looking forward to this. Last campaign was fun and I had no idea what I was doing.

    EDIT: I'll be there.

    Ok. Tbh it doesn't matter. I can probably save game edit your heraldry to whatever you want. Or just load the save in sp and do it. Just send me a pic of what you want and I'll change it.

    Any dynastic heraldry change is gonna have to be done via console and not via edit. So I won't be giving boats early on. I'll do them as a reward for successfully reforming to a feudal society on a case by case basis.
