Crusader Kings II is a game all about running your own kingdom. However, the current game doesn't allow you the freedom of choosing what your character looks like. I found that being able to create my own ruler definitely added to the overall experience of the game. Since I purchased this DLC, I haven't played a single game without using it. It's definitely worth getting and totally adds to game in a positive way.

The Ruler Designer for Crusader Kings II is DLC done right. It's addition to the game is not vital to a playthrough and possibly won't appeal to everyone: playing as a real character from history is part of the vanilla game's fun. However, there is a lot to be said for constructing your own dynasty, and shaping the personality of its founder while not being given free reign: good or useful traits bump up your character's age substantially, but bad or detrimental traits lower it somewhat. It's all about finding the balance. (for added fun, make your character insane and possessed. You may not live long, but some of the related events are quite amusing)

Crusader Kings 2 to me has always been about building and maintaining a dynasty throughout the ages, and I often find myself completely attached to these characters. So this DLC is a must for me, and this is because of how it actually makes me want to come back to the game and try new countries and empires, just to see how my character will survive his environment.
If you are not playing this game for historical accuracy then this is a must buy DLC!

The joys I've had with the DLC creating my own characters such as ones from my own family has been wonderful. It adds so much experience to the game with features such as choosing your own Dynasty Shield and your own traits. If you get adventurous like me you can start as a Muslim in Ireland, or create Suleiman to try and kick start the Ottoman Empire a little bit early.If you can get it for cheap I highly recommend getting this DLC!

I was hesitant in buying this one, as I liked the idea of building on history. Boy, was I wrong. Creating your own ruler is a great way to add to the experience, and after all, it is awesome to thread your own bloodline through history. After buying this, I've hardly played a game without it.
