Problem with tanistry succession in multiplayer
Hey guys, me and my real-life brother are playing a multiplayer game in ireland, and ran into something weird with the tanistry succession. It's the first time I have had this succession law so I'm not too familiar with it.
Heres the setup:
I play as the petty king of Tara. I am also duke of leinster and count of kildare. My vassals are my son, who is count of leinster and ossory, and my real-life brother, count of Tyrconell and Tyrone. He is also the Tanist of Tara.
As I understand it, since the count of Tyrconell has the most tanist votes, my control would simply switch to him when I die, if he had not been player-controlled. And all my titles would also go to him? Or would my other titles be kept by my son?
But since he is controlled by my brother in this game, he is not my heir, instead my son is the heir of all my titles except for petty kingdom of Tara. The warning "Title loss on succession" only states Tara and when hovering over the shields of the other titles it says they should all go to my son.
Yet when I died it was immediate game over for me! How come? Even if my brother took over all my titles when I died (wich it said he SHOULDN'T) i still had my heir with his own titles as a vassal. shouldn't my control have moved to him then?
My brother told me that after I died he had gotten both the petty kingdom of Tara, the duchy of Leinster and my county of Kildare. My son still had all his titles.
Yet earlier in the game when we only had the starting setup for Tara (Me: Petty kingdom of Tara and county of Tyrone, with my brother as vassal and count of Kildare) an adventurer attacked me and took my only province. I automatically usurped the county of Kildare from my brother. His character, now unlanded, moved to a court in wales, and my brother automatically gained control of the count of Tyrconell, who was a kinsman to both of our characters
For one, why did I usurp his title like that? is that normal, or a special case for multiplayer?
And secondly, why did not the same thing happened whith me when I died, that I got control of a landed kinsman i.e. my son?
Can anyone shed any light on what happened here?
