I’ve always enjoyed Paradox games, but I’ve also found myself lacking in understanding these extremely deep and detailed historical simulations. This playthrough is an attempt to remedy that and hopefully provide some useful information to anyone who’s interested enough to read my take on the situation.

I intend to play from 769 AD in Crusader Kings II (with the Charlemagne DLC) through to the far-flung future, using save-game converters where available (and my imagination where not), in the following manner:

  • Crusader Kings II: 1st January 769 – 10th November 1444
  • Europa Universalis IV: 11th November 1444 – 1st January 1821
  • Victoria II: 1st January 1836 – 31st December 1935
  • Hearts of Iron IV: 14th August 1939 – Indefinite (I’ll play until I’ve conquered the world)
  • Stellaris: 1st January 2200 – Indefinite (I’ll play until I’ve conquered the galaxy)

This will follow the evolution of a single dynasty selected in 769: The Mlechchha Dynasty.

I’ll make a new post as soon as I’ve got something interesting to say. These games are inherently time-consuming, so the time between posts will be sporadic depending on how much free time I have. Follow Odin Gaming for email updates or follow me on Twitter to be notified of any posts as soon as they’re made.
