Even though none of us are in attendance, we’re still celebrating PdxCon. Now you can too.

How? By joining in our massive Crusader Kings II competition!

UPDATE: Competition deadline extended to Monday 8PM. Still plenty of time to get those entries in!

We’ve got 9 copies of the game to give away as well as all available DLC, including newly released, The Republic.

What do you need to do to win?

Simply sign up and leave a reply to this message giving us your best proclomation speech. Tell us why you’d make a great king and what you would do for your subjects. Would you instil fear into the hearts of townfolk, or would you stand up for them and always acknowledge their opinions? Perhaps you’d shroud yourself in mystery and mask your true intentions under the veil of disguise.

It’s entirely up to you!

Make the proclomation as long as you like. Have fun. The best entries will win a copy of the game and all available DLC.

You’ve got all weekend long to enter. The competition ends Monday evening 8pm GMT and codes will be given out shortly there after.

Good luck!

    Loyal subjects,

    A true warrior must hold loyalty, courage, veracity, compassion, and honour as important, above all else. An appreciation and respect of life is also imperative, adding balance to the character of the warrior. Stoic, with deep and strong philosophical passion, deadly in combat and yet gentle and compassionate toward the weaker.

    Ruling, with not an iron fist but with honour and the values of justice instilled within us all, together we will grow strong, of heart and of mind, together surpassing all obstacles, setting forth a path of respect for others to follow, in awe.

    A pledge of fairness, to all, the defence of the weak and of all evil to be vanquished.

    Dear, dear, looooooyal subjects,

    It is a great honour to be elevated to leader of you fine, fine people – though some of you have been trying to stab me in the back for seven years, slip poison for another five, and unhorse me in another three…

    I am certain that with me in charge of our fine kingdom that not only will trade increase, but that we will end-up with one of the most forthright and productive royal courts in all of history – and this has nothing to do with the fact that half of the existing court will be bouncing along to the chopping block in five minutes.

    Yes, it is indeed a stupendous day that we have been blessed with.

    Now, where’s my axeman?

    Welcome, fine people of this kingdom.

    I’ve gathered you here today to tell you why you should want me crowned as King. Not that you have any choice, mind you, as this is no democracy and I’ll be on the throne whether you filthy peasants like it or not!

    As King, I’ll give this society a well-needed shake-up. Three-day weekends will be the norm, giving you more time to run in the fields, stroke your cattle and do whatever else it is you simple folk do in your spare time.

    I’ll also make sure that injustices against our people do not go unpunished. For example, that infuriating pre-pubescent oaf who maligns our taverns with his foul ‘music’ will be sentenced to death immediately. Yes, I’m talking about you, Bieber the Bard.

    Finally, I’ll hereby legalise any crazy hallucinogens the town alchemist cooks up, as if you want to sit around spaced out all day that’s your prerogative. Likewise, prostitution will be permitted, nay, encouraged, as everyone loves a good wench.

    My fellow countrymen,

    I’m not here to convince you why you should choose me as your King. I’m here to tell you what I believe about being a King.I believe a King should treat his subjects with fairness and compassion. I believe the love of the people is a King’s mightiest fortress. I believe a King has a duty to protect his people and the trust and power given to him is not an excuse to persecute his people but in effect a contract to prosper his Kingdom and thus his own people. Prospering not only in breads and milk but in mind and heart as well. That every man in this country should not live in fear of the swords wielded by the authority of the King but instead give his confidence to the wisdom and compassion of their beloved King. A wise man once said, a King who is after his people’s heart gain the love of God. And what a King who is loved by God not able to accomplish for himself and his subjects and the kingdom?! So I say to thee…do you believe in such a King?!

    Dear peasantry,

    Do you not think I stand tall amongst all men, despite my 3 inch heels and propensity to employ those smaller than me (note for prospective vassals; 5’4 and under)? Do you not see me as blessed by all God’s and Kings, even if my family are inbred back through 7 generations? You would have to be mad to think not on both counts.

    I carved this fine country with my own hands, taking land from heathens like so many legs from plump chickens at my many feasts. I crush enemies, not only with my significant waistline, but my well trained soldiers, loyal to the last. My patented frog-march has helped us defend the peat boglands to the south, increasing the chance of a soldier traversing the land without getting their boots stuck by a massive 5%! Worry not that the land is completely useless for agriculture! My vast entourage of scientists continue to work upon the land, investigating the gaseous smell in an attempt to neutralise bad smells, as the palace occasionally emits a horrific smell across the entire capital city. However, I cannot be blamed for such emanations. I wash three times a year!

    It is glorious that we have no need for any kind of parliament, or elections, like other silly “democratic” countries. Your faith in me is well placed. It helps to secure our position among the heathen bastardlands out there! It is also fortunate that anyone expressing any other opinion leaves our borders, without trace. May they rot with their fellow “free” minds! To abandon ones countrymen is selfish, lacking in fortitude! They would not raise their own hands to improve this nation, and for that, they should be despised and ostracised. Beware the parasite, for they will only rot you to the core and weaken your moral standing. Stand strong, my children. We will march towards a bright future together. May we all laugh and grow fat!

    Subjects,

    it is i, your future king. Although many of you may think that you are safe, you are not. The abundant danger of famine and attack from rival kingsmen should be streaking terror into your very soul. Ofcourse, now i’ve mentioned it, it probably is. However, i must remind you that if you appoint me as your king, none of this will be possible. As king i will ensure that the famine that is incoming is stopped by increasing our crop yield and in turn i will boost our villagers morale. We will then begin to build an army, an army that will rival any other. Towns, villages and cities will cower in fear as they hear the marching from our brave soldiers creeping closer to them.

    Although, this is not all i will do as king. If my you, my subjects need anything or cry for help, your king will be there. I will listen to all you have to say, comply with all your wishes and most importantly, be rid of those who seek to harm us for i know there are people here, now who wish us nothing but harm. I will not hide these people from us, those who shroud themselves in cloaks of lies and deceit, instead i will confront and reveal them for the scoundrels they are.

    Everything i do as king will be for my people, now it’s down to you. Would you continue to let these threats draw ever closer whilst there is hope? no. This is why you should appoint me, your hope, as king.

    Loyal Subjects,

    As your king of 400 years (since discovering the Stone of Eternal Youth) I have been doubted by many; many thought my ideas on banning same sex witch relationships was wrong but who honestly wants to see that when you go for a morning stroll in the woods?

    Anyway, I digress, as your King I will continue to rule nobly and respectfully, I will never bend to fear, I will never yield to evil, though I may take a large bribe to look the other way whilst a horde of bandits pillage the occasional village.

    As a former ‘loyal’ knight of the realm I know the danger that those on the road face on a regular basis and I will endeavor to maintain safer passage for all those looking to head out on adventure, head from village to village or simply wander the roads. Though, in all honest if your going to wander the roads you are kind of asking for it, I mean who wanders around aimlessly in a kingdom filled with ghosts that can materialize and stab you… with a sharp knife?

    Time, however, is short as I must attend many more kingly duties. Therefore, I will leave you with this simple thought to carry with you, inspire you and keep me in your hearts, “whether you think you can or you think you can’t you’re always right.” Unless you are a cowardly king, who abandoned his fellow knights, stole a stone of youth and enslaved a kingdom… then you are always right.

    Peace and Love,

    King
    Nomme Everest Washington III

    I guess i’m late by 10some hours, but worth trying as i see there is not many entry and migth as well be fun anyway to write a speech in english :)

    People of our beloved land,

    by God i was crowned your king. My reign will be rigid but with justice and honor, no more nobles able to do anything without incur in any Justice but God one, my justice will be there as the hand of His words.

    Honor and Faith are what i was grown with, the principles of my life for who i will live, or die. And those are the very first principles of my reign, and who will not follow them will rot in my prisons or their blood will serve as the water which wets the new grass in our kingdom.

    The Infidels will incur in a swift conversion or a swift demise under the Holy Sword and i will not hesitate to call a Crusade against them if they don’t submit themself to the True Faith.

    Fear not as i will always take care of your food needs, be side by side with your brothers, husbands, sons with my blade against the Infidels and who doesn’t follow God’s Words.

    Honor and Faith
    King Lynfiord the 1st
