Your council in Crusader Kings 2 will become rather demanding with Conclave expansion

Crusader Kings 2 players will receive a new expansion in the early part of this year with the release of Conclave.

According to Paradox, the council which governs the player’s realm will start demanding a say in how the country is ruled.

Dukes “regardless of competence” will insist upon a “seat at the table” and those who aren’t pacified will likely start plotting against the player. The gougers. Have they no sense of gratitude?

Players will need to keep the council happy in order for the vassals to resist inciting civil war.

Conclave features include:

  • Councils can now vote on changes to realm laws – or you can try to limit their power and influence
  • Revised education system for royal children, with new traits and events designed for childhood
  • New diplomatic system that prioritizes marital alliances and non-aggression pacts, as well as the possibility of coalitions
  • Improved military combat model with a greater emphasis on morale, as well as new rules for mercenary companies
  • And many more smaller changes including the usual tweaks to how the AI prioritizes its decisions.

Crusader Kings 2 is available on Stem and will run you $39.99 for the base game.
