What is this?

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?

  • The Bleeding Years, where Westeros is divided before the conquest

  • A Clash of Kings, set at the beginning of the book of the same name (Season Two of the HBO show)
  • A Feast For Crows, set at the beginning of the book of the same name (not yet adapted for television)

Future releases may contain additional scenarios.

Is Essos in the mod?
Yes :)

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.

Note: All scenarios will have spoilers relating to ‘The World of Ice and Fire’

Which scenarios contain spoilers?

  • The Seven Kingdoms: No Spoilers
  • War of Conquest: No Spoilers
  • Faith Militant Uprising: No Spoilers
  • The Rogue Prince: The Rogue Prince Novella
  • The Dance of the Dragons: The Princess and the Queen Novella
  • The Conquest of Dorne: No Spoilers
  • The Blackfyre Rebellion: No Spoilers
  • After the Spring: No Spoilers
  • War of the Ninepenny Kings: No Spoilers
  • Robert’s Rebellion: 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)
  • A Feast For Crows: Spoilers – Basically Everything

What DLC does the mod need/use?

The mod should run fine no matter which DLC is enabled/disabled.

However some of the DLC does add content to the mod, here is an overview:

  • The Sword of Islam: Adds only the ability for the player to have multiple wives as a character of the Valyrian religion.
  • Legacy of Rome: Adds castration and blinding capability as well as a couple of flavour events. It does NOT add retinues.
  • The Republic: Allows the Merchant Republic realms to be played, namely the Free Cities, Meereen, Yunkai, Astapor and the Guilds of Qarth. These realms will still be active even without the DLC.
  • The Old Gods: Enables the concubine system for Drowned God and Harpy followers (Pre-DLC system will be used if not enabled). Also adds much flavour, including beserkers, adventurers, new rebels and runestones. Raiding is available for drowned god, wildlings and pirates even without this DLC.
  • Sons of Abraham: Enables the council of the Most Devout and their election of the High Septon. Also adds many religious flavour events, including various Holy Order events/decisions.
  • Rajas of India: Adds flavour to various far eastern cultures, including tiger hunts, gurus and the reincarnation events
  • Charlemagne: Adds the chronicle, custom kingdoms (exisiting titular kingdoms are still available without DLC) and a ‘hero knight’ flavour event
  • Way of life: Enables the focus system, allowing a ruler to pick any of the foci available with all associated events decisions. Seduction focus replaces ‘visit chambers’ interaction when DLC is enabled
  • Ruler Designer: Fully compatible with the mod
  • Customiser: Fully compatible with the mod
  • EU4 Converter: Not compatible
  • Music Packs: The mod’s soundtrack currently overrides them, however deleting “A Game of Thrones/music/songs.txt” will re-enable vanilla music
  • African Unit Pack/Portraits: Used for the Summer Islanders, Basilisk Islanders and Sothoryos
  • Mongol Portraits: Used for the Jogos Nhai and Nefer
  • All other Face Packs: Not used
  • All other Unit Packs: Not used
  • Dynasty Coat of Arms Packs: Not used
  • Sunset Invasion: Some things may happen if enabled…

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 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 can 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 Mes Documents/Paradox/mod/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 any other part of the mod, or I’d like to use your Duel Engine as a standalone mod.
Altering or using content from the main AGOT mod for use in a submod or another vanilla mod is fine, permission is granted to all who wish to do so. If using content in a vanilla mod please credit “the AGOT team”

We’ve also released a generic, de-Westerosified version of the Duel Engine as a standalone mod here.

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 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.

  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

    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

    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.

  18. Peter

    Hello. On version 0.7 I am able to play only as Aegon I Targaryen. No other interesting characters or even later dates are available (so no Eddard, Robert, Daenerys and so on). What can be the problem?

  19. Lucas

    I just downloaded version 0.8 and for some reason, every time I try to launch the mod, the game immediately crashes. Anyone know what might be causing that?

  20. Niklas

    Purchased CK2 on steam, so the game updates automatically…. is there something like an “update reset” possible?

    • Weedle FTW XD

      Not sure if your still struggling with this but just in case you are.

      1. go to your steam library

      2. Right click “Crusader kings II”

      3. click “properties” (its down at the bottom)

      4. Go to “betas”

      5. Choose “Old version 2.1.6”

      That one works with the latest version of the mod. Enjoy :)

      p.s Fabricate claims wont work for me in the beta version of the game but that might just be my game.

  21. Sketchsauce

    Any changes to the faction system? And how do I replace the current faction leader?

  22. David

    In the beta version i get claims but I can’t figute out how to declare war. so i guess it’s also not working for me unfortunately :(

  23. Dragonsbane

    Can i only invade one area at the time?
    Because i started out As Robert and invaded Braavos and after Robert died, i As His son invaded Pentos and after one generation skip i can finally invade lorath. Why cant i invade several areas with one king?
