So what does this mod do?

Personal & dynasty names: Historically accurate names for several cultures, especially those who are underrepresented in the vanilla version of CK II.

Landed Titles: This mod uses a dynamic system, specifically designed for the older bookmarks. Old cultures will get historical country and city names (see screenshots). It also adds unique settlements and culture specific landed title names.

So who is treated as old culture then? Old Frankish, Saxon, Old Saxon, Suebi, Visigothic , Lombard, Roman, Gepid, Carantanian, Pommeranian, Prussian, Avar, Bolghar, Norman, Norse, Crimean Gothic

Are there any new cultures as well?
Yes. Crimean Gothic , Gepid and Carantanian at the moment. More will be added over time including more unique flavour.

What about culture specific title names for Kings/Dukes etc.? Implemented for several cultures already. More will be added over time.

Did you make all those names up?
No, I actually put a lot of research into it and will do more in the future.

Will this mod be updated?
It will be updated regularly. I am already working on it since several months. As soon as I feel satisfied with the titles names I will focus on other things. Got already some good stuff in my mind.

Sorry but I had to take a break. I will wait until the next expansion "Horse Lords" comes out and then start playing and hopefully modding again.

Hi guys!

For the next version I will include reworked Old Norse landed titles.

Examples for
Kingdoms: Langbarðaland -> Italy, Þýskaland -> Germany, Frankland -> France etc.
Duchies: Peitaland -> Poitou, Sjóland -> Sjælland, Sváfaland -> Swabia
Counties: Holtsetaland -> Holstein, Jótland -> Jylland, Þelamörk -> Telemark

Lots of changes for smaller holdings like baronies or cities as well. Paradox actually only used very few original Old Norse names. In Scandinavia it is rather easy of course and even in countries like Germany or Holland it is possible.

In some case I slightly modified the local Old German names, examples:
Osnabrück (modern) -> Osnabrugga (old) -> Osnabryggja (modified)
Schweinfurt -> Swinfurt - > Svínfurða

Others like Kellu (modern Celle) or Babinberg (modern Bamberg) don't even need slight modifications.

For Latin speaking countries it doesn't work this way, so I only included several Old Norse or Icelandic exonyms up to the moment. In this case I am favoring of adopting the early medieval names I've already integrated in the game.

I will add screenshots from my actual Norse Campaign later.

Sadly i got an exam in 2 weeks that's why I wont't add much more except some CoA fixes.

Only thing you have to have is native knowledge of certain culture, so you cant misinterpret (?) the cultural heritage and such.

Major flaw in new version - who ever controls county of Zemgale, for some weird reason will always be a theocracy.
Those are - high chiefdom of Kurzeme in charlemagne.
Chifdom of Zemgale (vassal of kurzeme) in old gods.
High chiefdom of Zemgale up to 1201.

Sorry, forgot to login. I am serious, I did not see any theocracy there. Couldn't play much today because of work. I will take a deeper look into it now.

Vanilla - zemgale is tribal up until 1201, as it should be.
Shattered world (+ life is tribal) always playable.
This + shattered (it actually works with some minor flaws) works.
This only - screwed.

Needs fix if you sse it too, ifnot , i have to reinstal.

I can play up to 1198 without any problems. After that it becomes a prince-bishopric within the HRE, exactly at the point when Albert von Buxthoeven became bishop of Riga/Livonia, shortly before the founding of the city.

I have to reinstal then.
Riga was founded in 1201, but settled back then. It should also be a barony, because it didnt became aggressor landing city yet.
