So I've recently bought a couple of DLCs I was missing and fired up Crusader Kings 2 at the earlier start as some Count in England. After some 100 years, I've managed to consolidate 4 Duchies and I was well on my way to becoming a King. Unfortunately for some reason the Catholic church's Moral Authority plummeted, which spawned over time multiple heretic armies, each one larger than the whole army of my realm (???). Also came across a pretty annoying bug where the Duke of Kent, despite having a 200 men army managed to somehow drag along multiple neutral armies from other countries totaling 4k troops and smack around 3 different attacking characters, including mine (those countries weren't at war with me). Oh and after all this happened, the Duke of Saxony, with his 3 whole provinces, dumped 10k troops in an invasion of England and wiped me out. So my question is - what the hell is happening with this game and is this normal?

Crusader Kings! 2!

I hope there's a DLC Expansion somewhere in the pipeline that adds "Mechanoid" as a possible alien species type, so that I can play as the Militaristic Collective-Fanatic machine race.

I see there's a Slavery checkbox, I wonder if that's just all encompassing or if you have the ability to specify 'us vs them' at all.

They're missing a lot of the nuance of social stratification, clearly. Or does slavery cover all forms of second-class citizenship?

Paradox hasn't really considered what 'is* is. There's never really a solid ontological thesis behind their games.

With Pops there's an obvious niche for a Finlandization/Fifth Column mechanic that could even change Ethics. Have defectors flock to your empire and denounce the evils of their old home on galactic broadcasts.

Oh no, it happened. Golden Horde went pretty crazy in this game, converting to Islam and conquered most of Eastern Europe and much of northern Scandinavia before breaking up, which allowed what remains of the Scandinavian countries and Novgorod to holy war back quite a few provinces before the game ended. Sunni Savo is a result of that, some rebellion or something, I don't quite remember. I did pretty up the borders of the successor khanates (there's Magyarstan, Kievan Khanate, Qasim, Perm, Kazan, Golden Horde and Kazahk).

Finally the game gets Finland's Mongolian roots right.

And obviously your enemy can too, so wars are way more risky now. Revolts especially, the patchwork territory means revolters can replenish easy and come back from a crushing defeat.
