FAQ

CK2:AGOT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

============================================

What is this?
A Game of Thrones is a total conversion mod for Crusader Kings II, based on George R. R. Martin’s fantasy novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire.

Who can I play?
You can play as any landed feudal noble in Westeros, any Wildling warlord, or the Night’s Watch.

What are some of the new features?
Knights, Maesters, our new “Megawar” system for handling civil wars, the Night’s Watch, one-on-one duels between characters, several different kinds of magic, and much more.

What scenarios are available?

  • Robert’s Rebellion, when Robert Baratheon, Eddard Stark, Jon Arryn, Hoster Tully, and Tywin Lannister overthrew the Mad King and brought the Targaryen dynasty to an end,
  • The Crowned Stag, set in the immediate aftermath of the above, as the reign of King Robert begins,
  • The Greyjoy Rebellion, when the Iron Islands fought to be independent of the Iron Throne.
  • A Clash of Kings, set at the beginning of the book of the same name (Season Two of the HBO show)

Future releases may contain additional scenarios.

Is Essos in the mod?
No, and it won’t be until Paradox makes republics playable and interesting.

I haven’t read all the books. Is it safe for me to play this mod?
To a limited extent.

All scenarios contain setting spoilers. If it’s really important to you to not know who the Lord of Winterfell in 255 was, we suggest not playing the mod at all. If you only care about avoiding spoilers for the events of the books and show, however, you’ll be safe so long as you follow these instructions:

  • Don’t read the house descriptions on the Game Over screen.
  • Don’t go mucking around in the mod’s source files, especially the character history files.
  • Choose your scenario wisely.

Which scenarios contain spoilers?

  • War of the Usurper: No Spoilers
  • The Crowned Stag: Spoilers – A Dance with Dragons(Books)
  • The Greyjoy Rebellion: Spoilers – A Dance with Dragons(Books)
  • A Clash of Kings: Spoilers – A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Dance with Dragons(Books) Season One, Season Two (Show)

I have a copy of the HBO show’s opening theme what I acquired completely legitimately. How can I use it as my main menu music?
Convert it to .ogg format, move it to your Crusader Kings II\mod\A Game of Thrones\music folder, and rename it crusaderkings2_maintitle

Hey, I noticed some missing shields…
This is technically a beta release.

I’m playing as the North. Why don’t I have any boats?
We tried giving the North boats. The Paradox military AI went haywire and spent the entire War of the Usurper taking Ned’s troops to the beach instead of actually fighting. So now they’re not allowed to have boats anymore.

I’m a Wildling and I have no idea what I’m doing.
The Wildlings don’t respect dynastic ties the way Southerners do. They’ll only follow strong leaders. The Wildlings receive a free Invasion CB on all their neighbors, and they receive significant military bonuses from having high prestige, but these bonuses come at two dangerous costs. First, Wildling provinces are ruled only at the Wildlings’ pleasure. Anger the people too much, and you may find a revolt on your hands. Second, don’t expect any higher-tier titles you create to outlast you – Wildling higher lordships and kingdoms dissolve on their rulers’ deaths. As a Wildling, you’ll find that power is easy to gain, and much more difficult to keep.

I am a French speaker, why are the dynasty names in English?
For french users: si vous voulez jouer avec les dynasties traduites, rendez vous dans A Game of Thrones/Traduction dynastie/FAQ où vous trouverez la démarche à suivre pour jouer avec les noms des Maisons en français.

I’m making a CK2 mod and would like to use your Duel Engine, or I’d like to use your Duel Engine as a standalone mod.
We’ve released a generic, de-Westerosified version of the Duel Engine as a standalone mod here. Please remember to give us credit.

My character has like 25 martial, why is he losing to guys with really low martial in duels?
Martial ability, being a command rating, has no effect on duel outcomes. Traits are what determines this. The combat traits are the most important, whilst others like strong, weak and valyrian swords also contribute.

Are there supposed to be random silent sisters showing up in the Kingsguard/Nightswatch’s court?
Yes, the game populates courts with random females. If you move the game simply adds more, this is the compromise we arrived at

Why can I marry an Archmaester/Black Brother/Kingsguard?
It is not possible to prohibit a character from marrying so this can happen. Although all these characters are infertile so it’s not recommended, unfortunately the AI doesn’t always heed this advice either.

Why are all High Septons called High Septon I?
A new High Septon extends the practice of septons giving up their family names by renouncing any kind of individual name. This is due to the belief that the individual becoming High Septon is no longer a man but an avatar of the gods.

Fabricating claims isn’t working/happening too often, what have you done to it?
The chances of fabricating a claim have not been altered from vanilla, so having loads of claims or none at all in a certain period of time can happen.

Hodor?
Hodor.

  1. I don’t think this FAQ is for 0.3.3. version. It could use some updating…

  2. The Palmtop Tiger

    I’m surprised I didn’t see this in the FAQ. Are any of the expansion packs necessary to play this game?

    • tompalmer01

      Nope, but some of them like african portraits are better with some people

  3. Kian

    Hi, I’m trying to play around with the build times for some of the buildings in the mod. Changing the entries in the castles/cities files in the /mod/…/common/buildings folder doesn’t work (the same method works on vanilla). Help a guy out?

  4. Amaror

    Hey just one question. Is it possible for me to change the slow reinforcement rate and increase it? It’s just i don’t really like just watching the world go by and not being able to do anything, because i have no troops, while the AI can loose thousands and have them back by the end of the week.

  5. Ammon

    Hello, I have just downloaded but every time i try to install i get a message saying that files are corrupt… is this fixable!?

  6. I am the only one which game shuts down at the may 17

  7. impersonater

    Is it just me or do province culture never spread? I’ve never seen a province change culture once. Couldn’t find anything online about this though. I’ve even made Samyiaryan’s and played for some time and never saw a province change. This just not do-able?

  8. Quashaun Williams

    How do you get a dragon i know you have to go to kings landing, dragonstone, and summerhall to increase your chances but how do you actually chain them up or tame them?

  9. Jeff

    Pardon me if this has already been answered someplace, I simply couldn’t find it. In vanilla CK2 the game ends in 1453 and your dynasty is scored and graded, is there an end game date for this MOD where your dynasty is scored?

  10. aaa

    which expansions are required or even recommended to date

  11. JarJar

    @impersonater
    There is no culture spread, due to event 55000 and 55001 being broken (not converted into aGoT)
    The event 55010 is working fine thought (the one that converts your character into a culture of the rabble).
    I wish they fixed this. Some interesting scenarios could be created with dothraki or Samyiaryan gaining a foothold in westeros… or northmen invading the dornish… ooh! Or summer isles! Northmen in summer isles! YES TO THAT!

  12. Nymeros

    It’s actually commented out, since it was not com patible in original form. I’ve modified it and implemented into the game. I’m yet to see the results in test playthrough, though i might reduce the time you need to wait for event to pop up for testing sake. Right now “crusader kings z” mod is catching my interest, so it might take some time before it is finished. Unless someone is desperate.

  13. Seterious

    Hi!
    First of all, than you for such an amazing game!
    I have a question – what expansions/DLC it is good to have to make the gameplay even better? Please specifiy/list them here, because I haven’t find a sufficient answer yet.

  14. the game keeps crashing 10 minutes in to the game why?

  15. Zamarak

    I can’t use ruler designer when i play online with the mod (0.7.1). Is it normal?

  16. CKII Boy

    Does The Mod Leave Any Viruses Because I Really Want To Play This But I Just Don’t Want My Computer To Get Any Harm Done To It

  17. I cannot play any westeros characters, what is wrong? It simply says: not allowed to play westeros.
