thanks all so far - its weird as hell playing as a count - being subservient to my liege AND the HRE - and having a possibility of being their Spymaster or whatever - very odd but a also very immersive, much more decision making to be made as a count

Good start, ucg.  It's whetting my appetite for my (hoped for) purchase of CK II in the upcoming Steam Labor Day sale.

Great start to the AAR and with just the right amount of 'ham'.  :)

Undercovergeek.
If I could be so bold as to request every once in a while you post a shot of the wider state of europe.

I've found in playing you get so focused on your own little corner that the rest of Europe can develop in interesting ways that will bite you in the ass!

IE My unification of Ireland was going swimmingly until king dies and leaves his 10 year old son in charge. Next month Norway (!) shows up with 10000+ troops and wants and takes it all.... I zoom out and see that Norway actually won the power struggle for England and controls it, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, and most of Finland.... ack!  :o
