Elder Kings is an Elder Scrolls themed total conversion for the Paradox Development Studio game Crusader Kings 2. It allows players to live out their dreams of ruling one of the great realms of Tamriel and leading their dynasty through it's various eras and challenges. While still effectively a Work-In-Progress Project, Elder Kings still offers one of the biggest gameplay experiences available for a released CK2 mod!

With the release of the CK2 1.101 patch a few days ago, we present Elder Kings 0.1.3a. This is a relatively small release containing primarily bug fixes and compatibility with the newest patch, although as always we have included a few new elements to the mod!

0.1.3a Screens

One new "feature" is the addition of two new rebel types; Bandits and "Warlord" Rebels. The Bandit Rebels will start spawning in provinces suffering from certain modifiers such as the "Bandits" province modifier, smugglers rings, thieves etc and are lead by a Bandit Leader.

0.1.3a Screens

 
The leaders of the Bandits are generally more capable than Peasants and other rebels, but they don't reinforce like other rebel types. Leaving them unchecked could see the rise of a Bandit King...

0.1.3a Screens

The second type of Rebel is the new "Warlord" type. This rebel is a rare type that will spawn randomly during the Interregnum.

0.1.3a Screens

 
Warlord rebels are extremely dangerous as their armies are more powerful than standard rebels, and their leaders are much more capable and they can also recieve reinforcements like other rebels.

0.1.3a Screens

These "petty" Warlords are part of the effort to depict the uncertainty and chaos of the interregnum, when men and women could rise to become Kings, or possibly even Emperors from relatively obscure origins. For this reason they don't require any province modifiers, or even revolt chance, all they need is an "incompetent" top liege, someone who is overstretching themselves, and a Warlord may rise to challenge them...

Elder Kings 0.1.3a

There's also a small reintroduction of a previously removed feature, that being Guilds. This element is however a very heavy WIP which will be expanded on in the future. What's there is fully functional but lacks localisation in some parts, and expansion to include other Guilds.

Elder Kings 0.1.3a

A +1 learning bonus for completing the mages guild sounds a bit low doesn't it?

I know i have asked this before but it seems to be overshadowed by the big dogs. Are you guys planning to add the dueling engine to the mod, i think it could improve the flavour of the game quite a lot.

@Extradaemon: The trait itself that gets added is only a small bonus indeed, but that's because there are about 6 events...or more...for when a person returns home from their respective Guild, and those events can add points to your learning or martial, give you a higher level of education (a Journeyman Mage can become a Master Mage for example in some rare instances), or some other stat boosting traits. The mage in the screens went from Level 3 to Level 4 Mage ;)
Remember, we're trying to avoid the stat bloat that certain other large total conversions suffered (and I think still suffer) from.

@Swapper; It's highly unlikely the duel engine is going to be added. Due to the vastly expanded number of educations and things going on in our world (Mages anyone?), the current duel engine wouldn't handle it very well.

0.1.3a is only compatible with CK2 1.101. Paradox recently released CK2 1.102. To make 0.1.3a work with 1.102 you need to download a quickfix, this is available on our forums here: Ck2.knuddelwuddel.net
