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?

Variations of the basic tenets of the Hellenic religion dominated the Mediterranean even before the advent of the Roman Empire, and it continued to be the primary religion in the Empire until the eventual and gradual advent of Christianity. By the 8th century in our timeline, it had disappeared completely save for a few backwater villages in northern Syria and the Peloponnesus, accounting for its neglect in the base game. Fortunately for you, the year 633 sees the religion on the brink of extinction, but not yet quite extinguished. Under the shrewd leadership of a capable ruler, the Hellenic faith can rise from the ashes and become mighty once again!

Reformable Religion

Although there is little trace of its former glory in A.D. 633, the Hellenic faith was once a well-organized and focused religion. The position of Pontifex Maximus, the ultimate authority on all Roman religious matters and the head of the Collegium Pontificum, was subsumed into the Imperial office during the reign of the first Roman emperor, Augustus. As Pontifex Maximus, the emperor had the authority to marry and divorce Roman couples, to mete out punishment for moral offences, to preside over all religious ceremonies, and to regulate the calendar. The title was abandoned when Christianity became the official religion in A.D. 380. The religion has become disorganized by 633, but an ambitious player can reform the faith and recreate the Pontificate Maxima. The in-game Pontifex Maximus is playable, similar to the Islamic Caliphates and the Germanic Fylkirate. He has the power to excommunicate other Hellenes and to declare Holy Wars (other Hellenic characters may not declare holy wars). The in-game flag is displayed to the left.

Starting Character

The Hellenic religion no longer has any noble adherents in Greece in A.D. 633, but there remains one noble house of Syriac language and culture that follows the old ways. Chief Bardol Kokabthad of Aleppo and Aintab is a vassal of Strategos Ioannes of Edessa, who is in turn a vassal of Basileus Herakleios of the Byzantine Empire. It will be a long struggle if he wishes his faith to once again dominate the Western world.


Unique Decisions

In light of their new dedication to restoring the old Hellenic traditions and glory, reformed Hellenic rulers have new decisions available to them. They may decide to change their culture to either Greek or Roman in tribute to their Hellenic predecessors, depending on whether they want to focus on spreading the glorious culture or the victorious arms of Hellenism. The "Restore the Roman Empire" decision is also now available to reformed Hellenic characters. Unique events are planned for future releases.

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
