You know what I really hate? When you're a 70-something man with no family whatsoever, you marry someone, get her pregnant and then die. The game ends, but MUTHAFUCKA THE CHILD IS THERE, JUST NOT BORN YET MY DYNASTY'S OVER!
Technically, a similar case happened in France. Louis X Capet was King of France, but died heirless in 1316, while his wife was pregnant. An interregnum regency occured and eventually the king Jean I became King (technically in CK2, this is represented by him being born before Louis's death). However he died a few days later.
Playing the Chief of Freyar(?) at 769 start is so frustrating for this reason. He is 69 yrs old with no heirs in the middle of the goddamn Ocean. You have to restart multiple times because he usually drops dead within a year or two. At least he can take concubines because of tribal govt.
Imagine you're the next in line for the throne. You really gonna let some old hag push out the only thing stopping you from inheriting the kingdom? That bitch died a week after you did.
Tried to explain the game to my parents this Xmas, but kinda gave up when they didn't get why I have to seduce my daughter to ensure my lineage doesn't die.
So I quickly changed the subject to my corpse collection in Eve Online.
Ever since ck3 I’ve noticed a disgusting trend on this subreddit. Now I can forgive kinslaying, murder, incest, religious extremism, forced concubines, blood sacrifices, witchcraft, cultural conflict, eugenics, the suppression of the peasantry, infidelity and even infanticide.
But I’ve lately been seeing SYMPATHY for the god damn Karlings. You people know who you are and this has to stop. You make me sick
