Description

Conclave , the latest major expansion for Crusader Kings II, will give your vassals some bite to go along with your bark, as the council that governs your realm will now demand some say in how you rule. Powerful dukes, regardless of competence, will require a seat at the table, and those left on the outside will be more likely to plot against you.

Keep your council happy, and the mighty vassals will resist the pull of faction and civil war. Dismiss their interests, though, and you may find yourself trying to hold together a council at war with itself.
Balance councilor skill and power to keep your dynasty safe and strong. Ignore powerful underlings at your peril, or simply buy their loyalty with favors. Conclave makes the royal council a force unto itself.

Crusader Kings II appreciates the subtlety of court intrigue. Conclave will give you new avenues to test that skill.
  • 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

  1. Higher difficulty
    by Albert G.2, Spain - Oct 1st 2018

    This DLC is great because it adds an additional layer to your Council. You no longer have to select your council depending only on their intrigue, learning, stewardship... But rather their personality, opinion of you, and how much of a threat they are inside your lands. Also, some ruler decision have to be aproved by the Council, which makes it much more interesting and increases the difficulty level.

  2. Excellent DLC for expanding the council of your kingdom
    by João Costa, Portugal - Apr 21st 2018

    IMO there are 2 major features for this DLC:
    1) making the council more important in the early game
    - this is done by using 2 mechanics, powerful vassals will want to be on the council (even if they suck at the job) and making the council have better skills. THis way you have to think on whether you want a good council member or cede tot he demands of your vassals

    2)reworking the children growth so it is harder to make the "perfect" son

    If you don't like some of the additions you can disable them in the rules section.

    What i like the most is that it makes the early game much harder to expand without thinking because powerfull vassals will push for a council that has the authority above the king while if you can keep your vassals weak you can rule like the game before the DLC

  5. Conclave Council
    by Plaps, USA - Feb 26th 2018

    People who enjoy the shallow politics of the base game might not enjoy this. For those who want to turn a puddle into a slightly larger kiddie pool this DLC will make you take your council and councilors much more seriously. I prefer having to placate my powerful and overmighty vassals with a council position even when it isn't the optimum play from a Min-Max perspective.

  6. Nice addition
    by storp, Sweden - Feb 23rd 2018

    Conclave has a few features that some people dislike, but those can be disabled nowadays. Overall though, I enjoyed the DLC and I recommend it to anyone who spends a lot of time on CK2.

  7. Frustrating but in a good way!
    by Shirazmatas, Sweden - Dec 29th 2017

    Conclave isn't the type of dlc that tries to make your life easier or more comfortable but instead provides you with more occasions of frustration AS YOUR **** *** ILLOYAL SCUMBAG VASSAL WANTS A SEAT ON YOUR COUNCIL BUT HE CANT TAKE THE TIME TO AT LEAST LEARN ONE GOOD THING AND CAN ONLY WHINE

    by Kaiser-e-rum, USA - Oct 20th 2017

  10. Its rather lackluster
    by MeisterJoe, Canada - Aug 2nd 2017

    CK2 shows its age and this expansions does nothing to help that.

  11. Council management
    by Marino1278, Germany - Jul 9th 2017

    It's a major expansion which adds council management, maybe more challenging now.

  12. Yet another CK2 expansion
    by Seba76, Spain - May 9th 2017

    With this DLC, your council gets cocky! They can restrain you from many actions, force reforms or, in the case you can act when they're against, respond in consequence.
    Buy & sell favors, keep the balance between hiring the best "technocrats" or raising powerful vassals to counselors for them to like you best.

    Quite a gameofthronish thing, this. If can live without it, wait for it to be on sale

  13. Got this during sale, wasn't sure at first, but it's not horrible
    by Tyler L.1, USA - Apr 10th 2017

    I purchased this alongside Horse Lords and Reaper's Due. When I first bought this, I kept it off and only used Horse Lords and Reaper's Due until I was comfortable with those additions, because turning on Conclave completely changes how you deal with education/factions primarily. If you give it a chance, dealing with your court and factions aren't as big of a deal as some people make it out to be, but it is understandably annoying when you are trying to make the shift over to using it.

    Give it a shot, I haven't considered turning Conclave off since I started playing with it, even if it was a rough transition.

  14. Yet another dlc that does not add anything (nothing good at least)
    by Batavorn, Netherlands - Feb 10th 2017

    Conclave is proof that Paradox has to stop releasing more dlc for CKII: anything they add at this point is either trivial or actually detracts from the fun. Conclave's main concept is a council that interferes with the ruling king or emperor's decisions. It is somewhat enjoyable when you are a nobleman who can use his council seat to indirectly change this in the kingdom to your advantage but that's where the fun ends.

    Even if you start out as a vassal your ambition should always be to become an independent ruler yourself. And once that happens the council is just plain annoying. The ai just randomly changes policies and opposes actions for no good reason (they actually consider it tyrannical if I order the arrest of someone who was plotting to kill my heir). I actually found it quite easy to bring the council to heel, but even doing that isn't enjoyable.

  15. Conclave
    by Bebeto, Romania - Nov 26th 2016

    To enjoy this DLC, one must get in the mindset of a medieval ruler who, though a soverign, is not a dictator and does not enjoy absolute power.
