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!
Overall, it is a 10 for me, but there are areas that need fixing. For me, I have a good amount of lag, not too much causing it to crash, but enough to cause the the hogher speed functions to slow some. And my only other problem is, by what I see, there is no way to prevent or even survuve the Knahatan Flu epidemic that happens later in the game. Other than those, this would be an almost perfect mod for the game.
I wanted to give Elder Kings whole 10/10 but ended up with 9/10 instead. Compared to most of other mods I love it the best at the moment but the fact remains that there is still a lot of work to do in order to make this mod the best mod in CK2. TES-lore could benefit from a dueling mechanic that has been used in couple of mods already. Elder Kings brings politics out to player better than any other mod at this point so next step should be to bring the battle mechanics to the same place. Only thing I find a bit lacking is dueling / single combat mechanics for player character. New bookmarks are to be expected in near future and I have great expectations. If the battles can be given a bit more personal feel for the player character as a commander I believe the mod will receive 10/10 from me.
Likely the best mod I have ever played for CKII, no doubt about it. The sheer joy of reclaiming Cyrodiil as an Ayleid, or forming the empire as a descendant of the Remans, nothing can compare to the fun, addictive nature of this mod. Plus, there's sooo many possibilities, adding a ton of replayability value to an already highly replayable game.
I haven't seen an update in a while, but I do hope Korbah is still working on this. Kudos!
Great CK2 mod, one of the only total conversions that is outside of europe. The updates always make the mod much better and usually more stable. The new features added and the new mechanics make this a great mod, with great potential
