    I mean if you look back on the previous couple of pages you can see that I managed to take the entire map as the zunbils with a vassal limit that reached almost 50, but in the next game playing as Rome had struggles with it early on. For that one I think I could've been more clever with transferring vassalage, but I got kinda exhausted by it

    so this time I felt like playing without vasall limits (and I also played ck2 back before that was introduced). It did make things a lot simpler, to the point all I've done in this game might not really be an achievement at all, but I dunno, I didn't want to deal with it

    Also I've found for the most part retinues to be pretty useless, because of how expensive they are. Almost all the time I find it better to spend the money on buildings that improve levies or mercenaries in emergencies

    I made an exception right now when I invaded China though

    At least on steam, maybe other stores, haven't checked, you can get the basegame of CK2 for free until 20. october (but you get to keep it forever after)

    dlc also discounted

    Decided to start my annual CKII game a few weeks early this year, and with a slightly different focus. Instead of trying to conquer a large amount of land, my goal was to transform the Emirate of Cordoba into the center of leaning, culture, and trade that it historically became, but hopefully without the gradual decline and fall. Supremacy over the Asturians and Abbasids would be secondary goals, and thus far I have not launched a single external war.

    So far, it has been fairly interesting, particularly exploring the Monks and Mystics features. I took Abd Al-Rahman I, who starts with fairly average statistics, and by the time of his demise had his learning up to 37, five more than the next-highest in the world, despite being neither quick nor a genius. And sure enough, the technology points started coming in pretty quickly those last few years. Granted, the sum of all his other attribute points was only 32, but if you're going to write your magnum opus on something, you might as well be highly specialized in it.

    His heir, alas, joined Lucifer's Own. Interestingly, however, that allowed me to learn that the Pope was also worshipping Satan, and has been a member of the society since well before becoming Pope. I don't know how they missed that during the conclave! Thankfully, as Sunni, we are not sheep being lead to the underworld.

    The DLC Sword of Islam is still free to keep as of today on Steam. Grab it whilst it's available.
