A Crusader Kings Epic
Things go from bad to worse for Konstantinos. His father and older brother die in suspicious accidents and soon after long-dead ghosts appear to warn him of plots against his own life. The young Byzantine noble—last in his dynasty—is plucked from the monastery he had been sequestered to for past crimes and thrust into ruling his family’s duchy as a Byzantine Duke (Doux).
The challenge to learn on the job how to rule and survive takes a serious turn when it becomes clear that no one less than the Byzantine Emperor (Basileus) is behind the conspiracies against him. Konstantinos will need to learn how to navigate through an intricate military, diplomatic, and clandestine web if he and his dynasty will have a chance at surviving.
This fictionalized strategy guide to Paradox Interactive’s award-winning strategy game Crusader Kings II is a complete novel in its own right, also featuring original comics by David “Svip” Udsen. At the same time the book imparts valuable advice on how to survive to players of the game, especially when playing as a vassal to the ruler, when waging war, and when using your spymaster in the medieval world of Crusader Kings II.
