  1. I will create a dynasty first by marrying a rich mans daughter, get the money, divorce her, marry a powerful man's daughter, get the power, divorce her, marry a hot babe, bang her, and keep her popping out sons that I can marry off to other rich and powerful dude's families. Rinse and repeat. Liked on FB and following on Twitter @oasis789

  2. Gods will know my name as I conquer empires with legions of mighty soldiers.  My power will extend the far outer reaches of land past mountains, rivers and oceans. Blood will be shed as my warriors march through kingdoms, gathering wealth and riches for my people. I will make each and every person know that I am too be feared, and my dynasty will last forever more.

    Or maybe I'll bribe everyone with chocolate until they make me their king. Whatever works.

  3. Hmmm to be perfectly honest, my current backlog for games is so large I probably won't get to this game for a long, long time. So I wasn't going to enter this competition…. but considering that you might have some extra keys……

    I'm really liking Jacob's chocolate idea. I think I'll go with that. If that doesn't work out, I'm gonna go the noble route. Be nice to everyone and try to help everyone out. Once that crashes and burns I'm gonna go full renegade, go round spying on neighbouring nations, hire Geralt and get him to assassinate some kings. Take over their lands and just be a regular asshole to just about everybody until I get assassinated myself. But I'll go down in history as one of the greatest conquerors in this fictitious history.

    That's how this game works right?

  4. My journey to greatness will start in
    Turov. Duke of Turov is a distant heir to Novgorod
    so 2-3 accidents on the hunt (arrow in the knee), rat poison in the goblet or
    backstab – And he inherits the duchy of Novgorod.
    Next task will be – bring true faith to pagans and infidels. After cleansing of
    wickedness I will claim the King of Rus title and show real power of the dark
    side to my enemies. Unstoppable giant will conquer all who tries to challenge
    it. Marriage alliances will secure
    peace between major powers.

    Start as a sinner and live in history as paragon of virtues

  5. Create a dynasty the tried and tested way – by killing off every single one of the old one. Can't leave even one of them alive, otherwise they'll go across the narrow sea, marry a nomadic warlord, breed some dragons, and come back to reclaim the iron throne. 

  6. No giveaway?

    1.  The codes were sent out already, we should be having another one soon, so stay tuned :)
