Description
House Baratheon of King's Landing - led by Robert Baratheon

From the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, and Game of Thrones show, King Robert I Baratheon leads House Baratheon of King's Landing with strength and loyalty.

Robert's Rebellion - Unique Ability
Making an agreement with another civilisation increases the City Strength in all of Robert's cities. +3 Culture from Camps and melee units pay no movement cost to pillage.

Skirmisher - Unique Unit
The Skirmisher replaces the Pikeman. The Skirmisher has slightly reduced Combat Strength compared to the Pikeman, but is cheaper to build, has 3 Movement, a Combat Strength bonus when fighting alongside a friendly unit, and generates Great Generals very quickly.

Brothel - Unique Building
The Brothel replaces the Colosseum. The Brothel is cheaper to build than the Colosseum and gives +10% Gold output and -15% Spy effectiveness in the city it is built in. Incense and Wine tiles in a city with a Brothel gain +2 Gold.

Robert’s ability Robert’s Rebellion allows for Robert to strengthen his cities by making allies and being a sociable leader, agreements include Open Borders, Defensive Pacts, Research Agreements, and Declarations of Friendship. Robert can also improve Camps to earn Culture which gives a solid early game boost to Culture, since Robert should spawn in a forest area. Paying no pillage cost allows for Robert to rain terror upon other civilisations at a fast rate, especially when combined with Skirmishers.

The unique building Brothel replaces the Colosseum and is cheaper to build. It gives bonus Gold to Wine and Incense tiles and reduces spy effectiveness in a city with a Brothel, whilst also improving Gold output. This gives an early reduction to spies and a very strong economic boost, which is further enhanced if you happen to have Wine or Incense nearby.

The swift unique unit, the Skirmisher is a slightly weaker replacement of the Pikeman. However, the Skirmisher makes up for this by being cheap to build and by having increased movement which allows it to get in and out of prime situations quickly, as well as being a solid support unit by generating Great Generals at an increased rate, and receiving a boost for fighting alongside friendly units.

Robert is a very flexible leader, allowing for multiple victory approaches, the early Culture bonus builds up in the long-term, allowing for Robert to accumulate many Social Policies. He can take the diplomatic approach by building up Gold and Happiness with the Brothel, or he can go on the all-out offensive by utilising the Skirmisher and declaring war and attacking fast and strong with the Skirmisher. He can also turtle-up and build up his cities' strength to repel attackers. Either way, Robert should be interacting and making agreements with as many leaders as he can to boost his chance of winning.

The mod features a fully-fledged civilization including: custom unit icons, custom border colours, properly tested AI, varied Robert-like diplomacy responses, custom music (including Robert’s Theme), and much more. Enjoy the mod!

Odd, are you using any other mods? And what do you mean by the maps?

Its showing in my mods section, but it's not selectable as a Civ. I can see the maps and those are options, but not the custom houses. Advice?

I did try to personalise them to what I imagine each leader would say haha.

New update just been shipped to make Robert better compared to the other civilisations I've released. Check the Change Notes at the top of the page for specific details. Mainly addresses details I forgot to mention, and a few changes to the Brothel and Skirmisher, as well as aesthetic changes. Will update the Workshop Screenshots soon. Enjoy!
