Most emotional moments for you?
+ LoL, it gets to me every time one of my kids recovers from being sickly and i hear that triumphant music start playing ("YESSS!").
+ I actually did laugh out loud when in my 1st or 2nd playthrough my new spymaster came to me with grave news that it was he who had murdered my old spymaster (or s/t along those lines, something anyway where he was involved).
+ Another LOL moment was when my eldest son (11) told me that he wanted to hide from his sister (4) who was bullying him. ("Where's that disinheritance button!?")

- When i got a notice that a young boy had died in my dungeon i felt horrible because i had forgotten all about the prisoners that we captured during some war. I think there should be an option whereby kids are automatically placed in house arrest instead.
- In my last playthrough i had tried to be circumspect when accepting invitations for my children to go to a peer meet. I knew sometimes bad things happen and so would make sure my kid has relatively good prowess or that the invitation didn't say "which unfortunately includes...". But at one point i had a character who was stressed out and accepting the invitation meant losing stress. I thought "well i haven't had any troubles with these lately, it should be okay". So i let my little girl go to it and then got a message she had been badly mauled. I felt sick with guilt when i read that.

Executing a little child of 2 (her mother took over my counties) with the pox. :steamsad:

(but that was in 2020: i was new to the game but that's not a good excuse).

With new friends and foes DLC I had the funniest moment I have had in the game.
My rival vassal wanted me to hold a feast. He wanted to pay for it and get a hook. I had the option to make him pay and not give him a hook so I used it.
Then I held a feast. I got a event that was something like "all my rivals are here" and it asked if I wanted to murder all of them, so I did. I assassinated multiple rivals at once and after the feast was over I got this screenshot as a event.
I burst out laughing when I read this event after the feast.

LoL. I wonder how much of this humor is planned out by the programmers or if it just sometimes happens that way. Like with the "time to trim the dynasty?" event where oftentimes the person in question is a dwarf and one of the options says something like "it's okay, we all have our shortcomings."

My cat dying of old age always makes me sad. That and the event where your character reminisces about an old birthday party.

But what about man's best friend? :albino_trait::albino_trait:

One of the things I love about the game is how it makes you care about the characters, even though they are (semi) randomly generated. There have been a couple of times when my children have been murdered and I've done some really stupid, but spectacular, things for revenge. One time the King of Scotland murdered by daughter, so I invaded his kingdom and executed all his (adult) children before finally executing him as well. Another time when one of my children was murdered, I ended up murdering eight Kings of Italy in a row, causing their dynasty to lose the throne, just to prove a point. Neither of those things helped me in any way and were quite risky, but I'd become quite attached to those characters and wanted to get revenge!

those gosh darned vikings. raided one of my counties and i declared war on them to teach them a lesson.

I didn't know my son was taking after his old man and became a knight. my only heir led the charge and died in battle. deus vult.

There was a party that went well and the guests all went off into the castle to find fun things to do. That's when my character discovers his rival engaged in sexual relations with a leather boot.

I'm quite certain that's the weirdest thing I've ever seen in a videogame, and I'm still weirded out by it now. I'm not that easy to rattle, either.

It was playing as the emperor of Mali. I had to face a massive vassal rebellion and I was strugglinh to suppress it as it was spreaded across a large territory. After being tired of endlesly sieging counties I tried to capture the duchess who started the rebellion to swiftly end it.
I'm usually not too harsh towards rebellious vassals but in this occasion the extended war costed me a lot of gold so I executed every rebellious vassal and also tortured the vassal.
To hell with the tyranny maluses, killing them all was completely worth it.
Countvlad: Ah yes, i completely understand wanting to exact revenge in this game. Usually i role-play and will sometimes determine that my character would certainly want to avenge a wrong...even if he doesn't have a vengeful trait. I mentioned an instance in the first post where my girl got mauled (i think by a dog or bear or something like that). But there was another instance when i sent a son off to a peer meet and he came badly wounded. I looked and saw that he now had a bully listed in his relationship screen. This fellow eventually became a duke. His reign didn't last long though.

In one of my games, my character tried to commit suicide after his son died of an illness. He was interrupted by my character's younger brother, who was a monk. Instead of condemnation or shame, the brother expressed love and understanding and convinced my character to keep living.

Murdering my wife was pretty funny.

Winning civil war where I had around 10 000 men vs their 200 000. Every vassal in my empire was against me and I did not have any allies. Why would a mighty empire need allies anyway – that’s what I thought. I managed to destroy their troupes one by one before they could assemble together. When they finally assembled the war score was in my favor and I proposed white peace. So although I did not crash them I still think that it was a biggest and hardest victory against all odds.

One of the funniest moments i had was when i was first starting to play and playing as an Irish Ruler starting in 876. It was around 1080ish when i had finally managed to conquer most of the English Isle's except for one Viking (Astaru) who managed to take over scotland.
This viking shortly after i made the Empire Of Britannia swore fealty to the viking lords of sweden/demark (was all controlled by sweden at this point) and shortly after that he declared war on me. After calling in every single ally i could muster i finally managed to hold them off long enough that i could eventually declare a white peace and they accepted, however it didnt end there.

During the war they had won a siege against my capitol and he had taken my wife as his concubine. Now the funniest part was about 5 days before the siege ended i completed a seduction attempt on my wife and this ended up resulting in her pregnancy. I did not realise this until after the child was born when it gave me a window stating that my ex-wife had given a birth to my son, and that the viking king who had made her his concubine believed the child to be his. At the time i didnt think much of it expect that it was some nice revenge, his legitimate child actually being mine.
It wasnt until about 3 years later give or take, that something happened that made me realise just how op it was to have an opposing leader think his child is his when its really yours, because the viking kings wife ended up murdering the viking king which put his only child (my child actually) on the throne. And because i already knew that it was my child i was able to reveal the secret of his heritage and once done he became my vassal.

At the time i had no idea what happened but laughed my ass off and it wasn't until i learned more about the game that i realised what had happened exactly and just how op it can be!

Murdering my game wife when my real life wife was watching me was entertaining.

I named a son after my real life son, and had him make the decisions once that character came to power. 11 year olds are murderous little tyrants!
