In the olden times I made a LP for the recently released Crusader Kings 2 with my own custom-made culture mod that injected BF personalities into the game. How Lum the Mad became Lum the Conqueror It was the story of how Duke Lum the Mad launched an ambitious invasion from his Norman fief and ended up rising to become king of the English. Mad King Lum succumbed to old age not long after his triumph however and his young daughter and sole heir Linn was widely believed to be possessed by demons. She died shortly after gaining her maturity under suspicious circumstances and with her the line of Lum the Mad was ended. But what if there was an alternate world, a world where there are no kingdoms or dukes. A world filled with counts scrabbling to consolidate or be consumed by circumstance. How would Lum the Mad fare in such a world. The popular CK2+ mod includes a Shattered World scenario where the world is filled with one-province counts. For this Let's Play I will play that scenario. With my custom culture mod, of course. Lum the Mad will start off a count and I'll make him a kingdom. The CK2+ mod is getting frequent bug fixes and whatnot so I've been holding off a bit, I also need to update my own culture mod and merge it into CK2+, but in the meantime I figured I could ask where people want to see Count Lum start out. I figured I'd just start him in Rouen in Normandie again as that gives options for expanding into France or just conquering England but I am open to all suggestions with two exceptions. One, I'm not going to make Lum a muslim. Not because racism, but because I have no idea how my culture mod works with islamic rulers and I don't want to get sidetracked by ironing out culture issues. Two, it needs to be someplace reasonable central. No count of the far Hebrides or Lappland, because having no money and no prospects is no fun to play. On the topic of my culture mod, the way it works is that I'll replace whatever culture in the county we take over with a custom BF culture. Then that will give characters of the shared culture BF first names (which I've culled from the forum, plus a bunch of generic english ones) and BF dynasty names (which I've invented) The house Dungsroman is a dynasty, as is the house of Pie. So characters will be born and named Guy Dungsroman and Angie of Pie and the like. I intend no offense to anyone whose BF name I've borrowed for this little mod but if you're uncomfortable or for any reason don't like seeing it appear in this LP then I will of course remove it.
