I need an outlet to talk about this game now that I'm dead in Mafia.
If anyone here hasn't played it, CK2 is Age of Empires on steroids with a lot more that you can do. And some fellows were so kind as to create a Game of Thrones mod that allows you to play the game in a fully-realized Westeros.
For instance, I already did a scenario as the Targaryans, having just landed in the Stormlands and proceeded to establish King's Landing and the Kingdom of the Iron Throne before running roughshod over the Seven Kingdoms with my dragons.
Now, I'm giving it a shot as Petyr Baelisch starting during Robert's Rebellion. I married the heir to the Dorne and had a son, and then King Robert had her imprisoned and executed for no reason. As soon as I finish usurping the Vale, he's dead.
Anyway, if you've played the game, discuss whatever you want. Stories are generally fun.
Re: Crusader Kings II (mostly Game of Thrones mod)
you can also change the starting date of the historical starting points.
my current game is a mess. the reach can never keep a king and the gardener's lost their kingdom to the current storm lord, which is embarassing because the storm lord just lost his kingdom to the lannisters who also won the riverlands and about half of the iron isles who are basically dead in my game.
