Recently got my hands on crusader kings 2 for the pc. The grand strategy game appealed to the obsessive in me and after watching the QL here on GB I grabbed the game off steam with the Sword of Islam dlc. I began as the duke of a small section of Ireland and married a young woman from my noble court. She was gifted with the charitable and kind traits, but within a few months of our marriage found out she was a leper. My duke was stricken with grief when she passed later the same year. I married an older woman this time, the princess of Bohemia. She was a spymaster in the making, and gave birth to many of my character's children, most important his heir Colin macShea Patrick. My marshal and I rode out in the summer of my 20th year in power, and as my son and heir celebrated his birthday my character was killed in an assault, his marshal taking a serious wound defending him. The attack was planned and carried out by my oldest son and heir, I know because I became him after my original character died. That was a mere 20 years in a game that goes throughout the crusades. The game is a must play if you like strategy, and all though the game has a rough learning curve, the payoff is worth all the effort.
