Hmm found a noblewoman married to a lowborn. Thought it's always matrilineal, maybe it was due to the arrange marriage event.

My norse game with Halfdan Whiteshirt turned out to be pretty interesting. Starts off picking up Northumberland, next I pick on the Irish. Started thinking of joing Scotland or Denmark, and Scotland takes all my Irish holdings in one swoop. Joined Denmark, did lots of raiding, helped fend off an independence war, then I got fed up and joined the second one. Took the throne Scotland in about 10 years through invasion. Was worrying about what to do about Denmark when they decided to fight for my claim, mom was a danish princess. Denmark was gifted to me so I'm working on reforming norse faith.

I am playing my first serious CK2 campaign as the count of Orkney. I soon got conquered by Harald Fairhair of Ostlanded. Now as his vassal I want to form my own little duchy with Orkney, Shetland and Faroe. This seems very hard as my army get's penalties for disembarking whenever I try to invade Faroe.

Now I've got my eyes fixed on Caithness and am awaiting my ruler of 14 to become of age. I've spent most of the time raiding and fighting alongside my king in Norway, though he doesn't seem to care at all.

Yo guise I have a question again.
So in my Irish game (again) I've conquered all of Ireland and Wales. And the damn vassal inheritance warning thing. Yeah, THAT thing. It's annoying. The only way I seem to be able counter it is by revoking titles. Any other ways? I don't like seeing my titles passing to England which is very powerful at the moment. I'll retake the titles when they're in civil war.

I has a question.  Does starting a campaign in the new 800s-y Old Gods starting date **** up the medieval world?  I mean, do kingdoms like France and the Holy Roman Empire still form?

Depending on who their parents were, IE if one of your counts was matrillinially married to a landed female character outside the realm, then any child born of that union would take your county out of the realm. I recommend killing the female character and child.

Maybe.

I've seen East Francia and/or Lotharingia do quite well, but not expanded to the size of the Holy Roman Empire. France can also only be named as such when ruled by a non-Karling character, otherwise it'll be known as West Francia (and I've seen it do fairly well under that name sometimes, but things are quite turbulent/dynamic in the 867 start).

So, is there a secret to successfully play the multiplayer? I read that ports must be opened but I won't be doing that.

Use Hamachi. Still might have to open ports though.
