Showing 1-7 of 7
Good expansion reworking most of the core mechanics of the abrahamic religions.

Summary: This is probably one of the most underrated dlc for CK2. The amount of changes intruduced here deserved whole new version of the game. I can't imagine playing this game again without all these jewish loans, holy orders, earlier crusades and many other special events (like demonic spawns or pilgrimages). All of them made playing abrahamic religions much funnier and faster, comparable to playing norse in ToG.
Summary: The college of cardinals adds an interesting element to influencing the papacy. If you are in need of quick cash, the Jewish merchants are willing to loan you some gold at a price. Be wary, this option gives catholic clergy negative opinion.
Summary: Sad to say this is just not one of best expansions to come to CKII. The Jewish faith is extremely shallow in game and hardly worth trying. The additions to the other religions are quaint, but not game changing in the least and not something worth spending money on. All in all this is perhaps the least useful of the CKII expansions, with possibly the exception of Sunset Invasion.
A fantastic update to one of Grand Strategy's best titles

Summary: Although I did not purchase this through amazon (the developer advertised a launch sale on steam). This is definitely worth getting if you own Crusader Kings II. Jewish characters add a whole new element to the game. The aspect of being able to alter the course of history with one of the most key religions of the era.
Summary: It was a great purchase, giving the ability to be a Jewish Count. Duke or King. I cheated once (hehe) to become the King of Israel. Loved the color coding for the Kingdom. Awesomely bright blue.
Summary: Being a forum member myself, I long awaited this DLC, mainly because of jews and to see how Paradox would flesh out christianity and islamism. Needless to say I was disappointed: besides not having any oriental jews (the mizrachim), with their exilarchy, a political-religious entity who fought the sunni Caliph, the jews themselves doesn't have any inherent mechanics wich makes them different from christianity, they can create a titular kingdom, restore a priesthood-...
