  • From Count to King in Crusader Kings 2

    Latest entry: 17th March 2016

    In Crusader Kings you can play as men and women of fantastic birth and dynasty; from William the Conqueror to the Sultans of Arabia. However the game goes much deeper than these kings and emperors. Every lord, count and baron is playable, and it’s often these smaller lords that are the toughest to play as.

    I’ll be attempting to raise up one of these lowly men to become something more than themselves. Since Crusader Kings is about your family, rather than your character, it might take a few generations… Hopefully the family I choose will go down in the ages.
