Europe is in turmoil. The lands are fragmented into petty fiefs, the emperor struggles with the Pope, and the Holy Father declares that all those who go to liberate the Holy Land will be freed of their sins. Now is the time for greatness.

Increase your lands and fill your coffers, appoint vassals, battle traitors, introduce laws while interacting with hundreds of nobles, and create the most powerful dynasty of medieval Europe.

A beleaguered king will always have friends to support him. But beware, as your rule and realm may find trouble when a loyal vassal becomes a bitter rival. Stand ready, increase your prestige, and listen to the world whisper your name in awe.

Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?

Although A.D. 633: Rise of Islam extends the timeline of Crusader Kings II by less than two centuries, much of the world has yet to evolve into its later form. Most of the the South Slavs still live in traditional Slavic homelands, north of the Carpathian Basin and the Avar hordes. The Iberian Peninsula is dominated by Visigoths who have no knowledge of the forces of Islam that, in OTL, later conquered their lands. In light of these historical differences, A.D. 633: Rise of Islam features several new or revised kingdoms, and flags to go with them. Some of these new flags and kingdoms are featured in this article.

Kingdom of Illyria

The kingdom of Illyria is a former Roman provinceThe Kingdom of Illyria is a title that replaces the Kingdom of Croatia from unmodded CK2. The name Illyria derives from the Roman province of Illyricum, which was one of the last areas outside of Italy that remained under the control of the Western Roman Empire. After the fall of the western empire, Illyria became part of the Ostrogothic Kingdom, which fell to the armies of the Eastern Roman, or Byzantine, Empire in the late 6th century. 633 sees Illyria split between Lombards, Gepids, and Byzantines. Although the symbolism of the province of Illyricum remains largely shrouded in the fog of history, one of the possible Roman symbols is an eagle over two snakes, inspiring the in-game flag.

Kingdom of Dacia

The kingdom or province of Dacia had a wolf's head with a snake or dragon's bodyThe Kingdom of Dacia is another former Roman province in the Balkan region. During the glory days of Rome, Dacian legions were some of the most successful, inspiring areas as far-flung as Britain to copy their symbol, the Wolf's head on a dragon or snake's body. The border between Dacia and Illyria separated the Eastern and Western Roman Empires, so Dacia remained under Byzantine control and largely escaped the fate of the West. At game start in A.D. 633, most of Dacia is still held by the Byzantine Empire, but an enclave of Serbian Slavs have settled in the inland regions and are beginning to push out the people of Greek and Illyrian descent.

Kingdom of Slavs

slavsIronically, the Kingdom of Slavs was actually established by a Frank. The founder, Samo, was a originally a merchant who was probably born in Sens, in what is now France. A pagan, Samo's decision to settle among the Wendish Slavs was likely due to his disgust at the Christianization of the Franks. Samo led the Wends in a revolt against the Avars, their nominal overlords, and upon their victory assumed the title of King. Samo and his loosely united kingdom were able to fend off attacks by Franks and Avars alike until his death, when the kingdom rapidly disintegrated.

Kingdom of Septimania

septimaniaSeptimania is the region extending along the coast from Provence to Barcelona. Before their demise at the hands of the Ummayads, the Visigothic kings styled themselves "King of Hispania, Galicia, and Septimania." While perhaps a bit pretentious, it is accurate, since the Visigoths controlled Septimania for the duration of their reign, despite numerous attempts by the Franks to oust them. In 633, Septimania is one of the title of the Visigothic King Sisenando. Its flag is one of the flags of Languedoc, which is one of the names of the region that corresponds to Septimania.

You do realize that not only can you turn auto updates off, you can roll back the version you're playing on right? Can't really be mad at the game because you don't know the easy fixes
