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.

It depends on if the devs want to implement something new or just update the mod to new version and just put everything that is in actual game without changes.

Recommendation for Devs: Could you put the Conningtons as one of the main houses for Ruler Designer? Being that they are now becoming more...err..."prominent" in Westeros, I think they would be a fun one to create a character as

I was a Pirate King, a tyrant but everything was going so well, built up everything and had a freaking 35kish levy and was about to pull a fast one on westeros...then i ran into the crash bug...or rather the bug of death. No way around it, i always crash on June 27th. Rage quit so hard, i knew i was going to have the problem at some point i just didn't know it would happen at the worst possible damn time, damn you bugs.

No fear, Pirate King Voldemort the Tyrant of the step stone's and his son James will be back... You can run but... Voldemort and James cannot fly.

So after binging Vikings on Netflix I decide to fire up the vanilla CK2 and wail on Britain as Ivar or Bjorn for a bit. You can imagine my surprise when I notice the latest vanilla version is now v2.3.2. I don't know whether to laugh or cry but I'm thinking this is why the devs. have been holding up on releasing an update for the mod

I seriously hate that I got back into ASOIAF. No Winds of Winter, and no CK2: AGOT...

Ditto dude. I bought TWOIAF and started getting back into ASOIAF again, only to realize that we still have a good eight years before Winds comes out I'm sure

This game will be excellent with full WOIAF updates though. Pretty pumped for that.

It will...its just that the suspense is killing me. Its not helping that I'm waiting for other non-ASOIAF mods as well. Like Lux Invicta

TWOIAF is (partially) a history on all of Westeros and parts of Essos. George plans on releasing a book after the series is over called, "Fire and Blood", which will essentially be a history of everything that has happened in the history of Westeros and Essos ever. Sadly, there are few of us left that believe this GRRM Bible will ever be released.

ASOIAF, as kohanai stated, is A Song of Ice and Fire, the series that you (hopefully) have read when playing this game

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…
