Crusader Kings 2: A Game of Thrones mod update improves life on the Wall

Have you tried the Game of Thrones mod for Crusader Kings 2? You should; it's very good—inspiring whole tales of intrigue, treachery and incompetence. The mod has this week updated to v0.8, further bolstering an already perfectly playable total conversion with a full Night's Watch overhaul and White Walker rework.

Here are the basic features added in v0.8. You can find a full changelist over at the mod's forum, but be warned: they may contain nuts spoilers.

  • Many White Walkers improvements/fixes
  • Night's watch revamp
  • Titular kingdoms for Essos
  • Essos flavour
  • Dynamic Golden Company invasions
  • A new 'Prison Break' event series
  • Reduced Jon Snow's learning attribute to nothing

Okay, fine, I made that last one up.
