What is up with the companions? As a Catholic my only noble options are Baltic, and as a Mongol my only noble options seem to be Orthodox. Is anybody else having this problem or should I re-install or something?

I suppose there will never be a new version of this, but if anyone ever takes up making a submod or even continuing it...

You should be able to crusade for not just Outremer, but for the Teutonic Order, or the Papal States

Actually, the Irish would pick a chieftain who would protect the Irish culture and lands despite being very decentralized rather than plutocratic(like the English or Scottish or Scandinavian countries with a King with strong powers.People think that just because they did not have Kings all this time that they did not have a government. Any place has a government and the Irish had something close to a tribal chieftain confederacy to defend it's borders. They later actually picked a chieftain as a King who fought the English crown and ended up being destroyed by the centralized Normans who were successful due to a feudalistic society which was needed for powerful armies at the time.

What happened was the English dominated the British Isles and while Wales became obsolete, Great Britain was forged by 3 crowns. You may guess which. Many places in Europe and outside were in a way vassals of a powerful say a Duke or Baron has a region...they may still display their own flag, etc. but serve a powerful King. In France what happened was they had a lot of rober Barons who did not wish to adhere to the vague laws of Paris and did whatever they wished...still paying homages...
