    Man, I'm just glad I'll finally be able to hide any fat kings I get beneath mountains of beard.

    Yeah I think it's about time... The title editing will be super useful as will the CoA stuff (ESP on changing religions!!). The hair salon feature helps save on messy guess and check save editing.

    Sadly I won't be able to play for a while.

    Renaming titles will allow for better simulation of acts of union now, too.

    Letting Scotland drift into a Kingdom of England I've renamed "the Kingdom of Britain", for instance.

    Does anyone have a download link for Flavourful TItular Titles, by chance? The link on Strategy Informer is dead, and likely out of date.

    Oh, seems the customiser lets you rename your grandkids (all your descendants,actually), too.

    ... That's almost worth the price on its own! :p

    Well, it seems you can't rename them - just name them when they're born.

    Oh, huh. I figured it was renaming, since the naming screen popping up for ALL your descendants would be hugely annoying. Heh.

    Also the DLC itself says: "Rename children born to all your descendants (not just your own children)"

    Yeah, the DLC works if you opt back into the Steam beta, and according to what everyone says - and what I've found - that's not a feature. Seems it's just a poor description.

    So anyone tried the EU 4 converter yet? It can have insanely fun results especially if you still have the Vikings around or actually recreated the Roman Empire.

    Create an anti-pope. Press his claim on the papacy. Find the previous Pope, now an absurdly wealthy lowborn courtier (he takes his Popehoard with him, it seems). Marry the former Pope matrilineally to any noblewoman he'll accept. Your daughter, if needs be. JUST TAKE THE PRESTIGE HIT. He arrives in your court.

    Now, what happens to the wealth of landless courtiers on death? Why, it passes to their liege, of course.

    [face_devil]

    Arrange a suspicious accident.

    BOOM! YOU JUST INHERITED THE POPEHOARD.

    An exploit, for sure, but I'm not going to look 22k gold in the mouth.

    Liked for use of the term 'Popehoard'. I'd like to think you just sold of the Church of St John Lateran to pay for some mercenaries.

    What else to do with all that gold.

    Oh man, I erred big time. So, after I tested out that the Popehoard scheme would work with a quick save-reload, I allowed the ex-Pope to live out the rest of his days in my court. Because my then-character was kind and just, and I don't like to deviate too much from RP.

    Unfortunately, this allowed him to reproduce.

    So, when he died, all his vast (and likely ill-gotten) riches fell to the Popespawn.

    "No big deal," I thought, "I'll just wait for HER to die. It'll be a nice windfall."

    Except, when she died -- unmarried and childless -- the money VANISHED. Presumably falling to her nearest living relative on her mother's side.

    AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHO THAT IS! :oops:

    So, basically, there's now an unknown courtier SOMEWHERE in Europe swanning around with 22.8k gold.

    And I basically just created a new mini-game for myself. *sigh*

    I played the hell out of this game for a bit, but have mostly been playing the Game of Thrones mod.

    Taking a break 'til Essos gets released (and I guess to focus on classes or something, too.)

    It's a Roma DLC, obviously.
