We are proud to announce the full release of A.D. 633: Rise of Islam for CK2 2.8.x (Jade Dragon).

Updates

  • Compatibility with Jade Dragon, along with enhanced compatibility with future versions of Crusader Kings II.
  • More true historical characters in some areas (Visigoth Spain, for instance) after meticulous research of new sources
  • Inclusion of the Tibetan Plateau, with ancient realms such as the proto- Tibetan Empire, Zhangzhung, and the Tuyuhun kingdom
  • A unique new historical event chain involving Bavarians and Bolghars
  • Slight modifications to the early Islamic invasions
  • Minor bugfixes

Main Features

For those who are new to the mod:

A.D. 633: Rise of Islam extends the timeline of CK2 by 136 years. Islam has not yet spread beyond the Arabian Peninsula, but the Arab tribes are numerous and zealous to fight for their new faith. Remnants of paganism remain in England and East Africa, and many nomadic tribes have yet to settle down. 633 is truly an exciting time for mankind. Included are:

  • Rise of Islam events and characters
  • New Cultures, including Syriac, Coptic, Latin Maghreb, and Ostrogothic
  • New Religions: Cushitic, East African pagans in Ethiopia and Somalia; Reformed Hellenic, complete with playable religious head; and Arian, an early Christian heresy
  • New de jure system for some tribal areas: no unrealistic de jure kingdoms and empires. Instead, easier to create custom kingdoms in these areas
  • Germanic Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain
  • Reassigned names and de jure areas for some titles, including Illyria, Dacia, Cantabria, Neustria, Austrasia, and more
  • Flourishing Zoroastrianism in the Sassanid Persian Empire
  • More Jewish characters, including a Sephardi Jewish count as a Roman vassal in Palestine
  • Scripted events for the development of early Islam
