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!

Did you know that Elder Kings has it's own Bugtracker?
It allows you to post bug reports and feature suggestions for the mod in an easily accessible format for the Development Team. Since we opened the bugtracker on the 14th of December 2013 it's already helped us eliminate a ton of bugs thanks to the input of our fans, so join in today and help make Elder Kings even better!

Contrary to some beliefs, the mod isn't dead. We simply find MODDB's comments section horrendously bad for communication and prefer to use our subforum on the Official CK2 Forums. When a new release is ready, it will of course be released here, but communication is a bitch in those little boxes.

Due to the delays in releasing 0.1.6 (thanks in part right now to issues in the current base CK2 version) it has been decided to provide limited access to the development SVN. This access is an “at your own risk” situation, if by accessing the svn you manage to screw up your PC or CK2 installation we offer no warranty or guarantee. The version you will be accessing is the currently in development version of 0.1.6, it is riddled with bugs many of which are beyond our control to fix (hound Paradox for a new patch with Captain Gars’ fixes), bear this in mind when playing.

Head over to our subforums for the information on accessing the SVN.

A free account with the ParadoxPlaza is required along with registering your Steam Key for CK2 to access the subforum. The ParadoxPlaza is the official forums of the Developers & Publishers of Crusader Kings 2 (Paradox Development Studio/Paradox Interactive). Along with access to the modification subforums you will also gain access to the Tech Support forums for Crusader Kings 2 as well as a wealth of other informative subforums and discussions.

Yeah this is not updated to the most recent version of the Game with the Horse Lords patch/expansion. Be sure you have your game rolled back to version 2.3.6 as that is where it works.

Currently the team is stuck because with the Horse Lords patch/expansion a lot of mechanics broke and even Paradox is having major issues with the game so be patient, be calm and know that now everything is in the hands of Paradox. Once the major patch comes out to fix Horse Lords, then the team will make great headway and likely release very soon after that happens.

Thanks for the reply, playing the dev version at the moment and it works fine. This mod would be amazing to play multiplayer and recreate some famous events :D

thats because it's on a previous version of the game, this version of the mod is a year old, and their working on the next after they get some more done. They've had some personal things going on so its been slow.

The developers have opened limited access to the SVN Developer WIP build go to the forums to find out the risks and decide if you want to download.

How is the Ebonheart Pact, Aldmeri Dominion, or Daggerfall Covenant formed? Does it need to be in the Reach Invasion bookmark?
