Compatible with: CK2 1.09
Warning: This is a BETA version, so it might (in fact, it will most likely) contain bugs and unfinished features!

Official submods:

  • NB+ / New Borders: Nicer borders. Check the thread to see comparisons, or get it here.
  • R+L=J: SPOILER ALERT. If you don't know what the title of this submod means, you don't want to download it.

The installation procedure for the mod has changed! The mod files must now be copied to the /mod subfolder in the same Paradox/Crusader Kings II folder as your saved games. Windows users have been provided with an installer that performs this function automatically, while Mac users can find detailed installation instructions here.

Make sure you delete your old mod files before installing or unzipping the new version! Yes, this includes the ones in the old mod folder.

In a land where summers last for years and winters last for decades, nine great families struggle for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Take control of a noble house, from the Starks of Winterfell to the Lannisters of Casterly Rock, and win the Iron Throne!

But remember, winter is coming.

Patch 0.4 Notes
This release comes pretty quickly on the heels of 1.09, but it's no mere compatibility update. And no, Essos isn't in either. What we do have for you is a ridiculous amount of new content. Seriously, our changelog for this thing is six pages long. Here's the highlights:

  • Airborne duels between dragon riders
  • A new scenario to show them off - the Dance of the Dragons
  • A second new scenario, the Conquest of Dorne
  • New Loyalist factions that make civil wars far more balanced, and factions far less of a pain
  • Several new features surrounding sexual politics, including stillbirths, abortions, and a brand new system for secret bastards
  • Our very own original soundtrack, courtesy of the extremely talented Aurelien Benharrats

Full changelog below.

- For stability sake, reduced by 20 % the chance to undergo multiple independance revolts.

- Due to dynasty_decisions not working for the AI, added AI only decisions to give dragon egg to random children and to knight all eligible children.
- Prohibited the knighting of sons who have a health problem.
- You can now imprison your regent if they embezzle your funds.

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.

What is "NB+ AGoT Edition?
It's a submod which changes the way borders are drawn and other nice gfx adjustments. Here's the original mod (thanks to EOOQE for making it compatible with our mod).

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?
  • The Seven Kingdoms, which ruled a divided Westeros in the age before Aegon's Conquest.
  • The War of Conquest, when Aegon Targaryen set out to forge the Seven Kingdoms into one, through fire and blood.
  • The Dance of the Dragons, when Targaryen fought Targaryen in a bloody succession war.
  • The Conquest of Dorne, when the Young Dragon first brought Dorne under the Iron Throne.
  • After the Spring, in the aftermath of the Blackfyre Rebellion and the Great Spring Sickness, as House Blackfyre once again plots to take the Iron Throne.
  • 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. See topic2153.html

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?
  • The Seven Kingdoms: No Spoilers
  • War of Conquest: No Spoilers
  • The Dance of the Dragons: No Spoilers
  • The Conquest of Dorne: No Spoilers
  • After the Spring: 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)

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 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 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.

I am new around here and I was just wondering what the average ETA for the mac version is following the PC release? Regardless, I am beyond excited to get my hands on it :)

Thank god that demands vengeance malus has been nerfed. It made my life a living hell, when I defeated a relative by trial by combat. It ain't fun when your entire family, heck, your house wants to kill you.. I had to keep my plot tab open to stop people plotting to kill me in five seconds.

Now, I just hope that the next version will have buildings. Now, they are kinda useless, because there is no technological progress going on. This makes some provinces too powerful, I.E. Highgarden, Casterly Rock.. You can never reach those levels as any other lord.

Be wary that sometimes, a fake download button may appear.

I thought it was the official download link, until it asked to download "CK2-AGOT setup 0.4.exe.exe" which was around 200kb. So, just be cautious guys.

It should, look like this

Yeah, a better host or some mirrors would be nice. Sendspace, in addition to its attempted trickery, is damn slow on my end. I'm averaging 25 kb/s on a 24mbit connection. Still got another 40+ minutes to go at this rate.

Also posted it on the PP thread. Sadly, most free filesharing websites usually allow ads which sometimes attempt virus/spyware trickery.

Maybe try GameFront as your primary. Pretty popular when it comes to mod hosting, and the download process is quick and painless.

Some day we are bound to get lucky with these damn file hosts. I'll check this GameFront thing; in the meantime I have added a warning right after the link.

It's pretty reliable. I've downloaded mods for various games over the years from there.

This thread has always used the 0.4 splash screen and it was most certainly never giant-sized. I don't know what you're talking about.
