Expansion features[edit | edit source]

Lions of the North adds new mission trees and historical options for a number of Baltic Sea nations. Many of these options include new “branching missions” which allow greater variety and replayability as you explore different alternate histories through the decisions you make.

  • New mission trees for:
    • Flag of Denmark Denmark: The leader of the Kalmar Union desires unity in the kingdom and can pursue commercial and political dominance of the Hansa and Northern Sea trade regions.
    • Flag of Sweden Sweden: A major power in waiting, Sweden can claim a primary position in Scandinavia, ready to intervene and project power on the continent.
    • Flag of Norway Norway: Resist the influence of powerful partners and strike a new path as a naval power in the North Sea or even across the Atlantic.
    • Flag of Scandinavia Scandinavia: A united northern nation will have a wide range of new options to project its power as the cold lands of the region get more developed.
    • Flag of Teutonic Order Teutonic Order: Once a great Crusader state, now it fights for survival against Polish and Lithuanian pressure. Follow the path to become Prussia, or rediscover the zealous power of religious war.
    • Flag of Poland Poland, Flag of Lithuania Lithuania and the Polish-Lithuanian Flag of Commonwealth Commonwealth: Unite the kingdoms and develop your vast lands while maintaining cohesion against recalcitrant nobles.
    • Flag of Livonian Order Livonian Order and Flag of Kurland Kurland: Follow the path of the Crusader to rival your heretic neighbor or secularize your state.
    • Flag of Riga Riga: Religious merchant of the Hanseatic League, Riga can manipulate the politics of the trade alliance to instigate conflict and reap the spoils.
    • Flag of Danzig Danzig: Create a Prussian nation from this key city-state.
    • Flag of Gotland Gotland: Choose different paths as a monarchy, merchant republic or pirate haven to dominate the Baltic.
    • Flag of Finland Finland: A free Finland can explore its destiny separate from Swedish rule.
  • Unique Government Reforms: New government reform options for many nations in the area.
  • New Unit Types: Recruit Swedish Carolean infantry and Polish-Lithuanian Winged Hussars under certain conditions.
  • New Estate Privileges for regional powers.
  • New Unit Sprites: 35 new pieces of unit art for Scandinavian and Baltic nations.
