    The already excellent Crusader Kings 2 just got a second wind – now with a spicy Middle-Eastern flavor!

    A well-made DLC that adds a whole Muslim part to the original game map. This means new specific rules, events and strongly changed setting, in which we play according to the slightly different rules.

    This DLC give an opportunity to player to play as a Muslim nation. Playing as the Muslim will give different experiences than playing as Catholic/Christian nations, namely because you got four wives, you have to share your titles to your family due to a system called decadence in Muslim dynasties. You will also have easier CB, you can declare conquest to any of your neighbor, so small wars are more common than Catholic nations.

    The succession war on Muslim nation is somewhat more interesting. When playing Catholic nations, I rarely have succession war, but in every Muslim play through I will always have a succession war, in some plays I have wars every time the liege died, all of my brothers and uncles are out to kill me.

    Great DLC.
