Another solid expansion from the folks at Paradox.

This DLC deals with adding quite a bit of flavour to Christianity, the namesake of Crusader Kings 2. These mechanics are a welcome addition to the game. Curia and papal intrigue mean that your character can delve into the religious part of the game as a Christian now!

The decision to expand on the regular heresies is also nice and it adds more depth to anyone who happens to become one. Can't wait to finish a game as an Iconoclast or a Cathar.

There's also been some flavour additions to Muslims (such as the ability to choose which school/ideology to back). And who can forget the ability to play as a Jewish character? Can't forget that.

All in all, fun stuff.
