So I've still got my Scotland game going pretty strong. Still aching to take over England, but luckily my nephew in my Dyansty is the heir to the throne, since I had the prince of England in my court some years ago, so stinks for his dynasty coming to end. I'm curious to see how it all turns out. Also, I wanted to mention that the Kingdom of Sweden in my game has been eliminated from map essentially. The tiny republic of Gotland has taken over their kingdom, haha. And Iberia, and even portion of southern France, is all Islamic.
I also setup another game to play around in. This time, I'm the Emir of Tunis I think, a nice little sheikdom in North Africa. My goal is to reunite the North African counties and duchies into kingdom of Africa. Playing as an Islamic dynasty is interesting...the did a pretty good job mixing up the dynamic. I have so many wives, and so many children, but I have to manage "decadence" or take some penalties and risk assassination attempts. But with so many wives, I produce a lot of Princesses. Which means I have a large number of diplomatic relations which is nice, especially being so close to the Crusades area and the Papacy in the Med. I'm fostering relations nicely with Cairo, since they are big and strong. And a neighbor of mine in northern Algeria. I'm definitely more in the mix of action now, than being in the far north in Scotland.
