What is this mod about?

“A Game of Thrones” (AGOT) is a full-conversion mod for Paradox Interactive’s Crusder Kings II (CK2). Set in the world of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (ASoIaF) fantasy saga where lords great and small vie for control over the lands of Ice and Fire, from Westeros and the Seven Kingdoms in the west, to Qarth in the east. The mod takes its name from the first book in the series, as well as the “game” of plots and politics the ambitious and hopeful are said to be playing in their struggles for supremacy. Currently players are able to choose to play from any start date in the 300 years from before the Aegon's Conquest to the beginning of the fourth book (A Feast for Crows).

What makes this mod different from Crusader Kings II?

Besides the obvious, which is a new interactive rendition of the fictional low-fantasy medieval setting of ASoIaF, you’ll notice a host of changes that build off the framework of the original (vanilla) CK2 game. In CK2, players battle against other rulers for control of various independent realms and kingdoms. In AGOT, while the potential exists for the realm to fragment into multiple kingdoms, in practice it very rarely happens. Players instead fight to control just one throne – the Iron Throne, forged by Aegon I Targaryen “the Conqueror” almost three centuries prior to the events of this saga. Additionally, events from CK2 have been adapted to fit within the lore and flavour of A Song of Ice and Fire. Some notable new features to mention; A new dueling engine so that lords may fight each other in personal combat on (or off) the battlefield; An all-new method for personal interaction between characters; Pets that (sometimes greatly) aid characters in battle; And a host of less significant (but no less important) features that together help create a solid and serious effort at bringing Westeros to life for gamers. The mod also utilizes features from various other mods, listed in detail in the credits section.

While CK2 and AGOT contain Role-Playing (RP) elements, this mod is not a full narrative recreation of the books. Just like CK2 and other grand strategies, the mod is dynamic in allowing players the freedom of exploring “What If?” scenarios. What if Robb captured King’s Landing? What if Stannis and Renly joined forces against Joffrey? What if Rhaegar Targaryen had killed Robert on the Trident instead of the other way around? All these things can, and may, happen in the mod, with or without the player’s choice. No game will ever be the same, whether you win or you die.

Any Mac users able to get this mod to work? I've spent hours looking for solutions on forums and nothing works. I get past the load screen but as soon as I try to start a game the program just closes. I bought this stupid game just to play this mod and I'm starting to think it was a complete waste of money. Would have been nice if they had said this doesn't actually work on Mac...wouldn't have bought the damn game.

Ok...after many hours of frustration I've got it. If any other mac users are having the same difficulty as me the instructions on Stevenmoran.com still works but on step five where you have to input your username make sure you are using the name of your home folder. Your home folder may not be visible in finder (mine wasn't); just open preferences and check it's box and it'll show up...it's the folder with the little house next to it. OMG...I can't wait to play this mod I've heard soooo much about.

Might it be an idea to replace the Dornish skins with the new iberian ones?

For some reason, I loaded a few of my games and all of the traits are messed up! For all of my saves :( What can I do? Like, my High Magister of Pentos is a dragon for some reason, and has Dawn. It would be funny if its not soul-crushing...

As the Iron Isles I had conquered the Westerlands and the Riverlands and had granted the paramount titles to Ironborn vassals; however when the Iron Throne reverted to peace, my paramount vassals, who were loyal ironborn, automatically became Iron Throne vassals.

I have to review? What's there to review? Actually, why in the Seven Hells are you wasting time reading this? GO PLAY THIS MOD. Pronto. This mod is fantastic. The content is second to none - I play this more than the base game now. I originally looked to this to keep me occupied until The Old Gods, an expansion for Crusader Kings 2, comes out. But now, I'm worried that this mod will have thrown me off of it entirely. The scenarios are excellently done. Scripted events play out just like the books…
