What is Crusader Kings II: Jade Dragon about?
Crusader Kings II: Jade Dragon allows you to interact with China for protection and technological marvels - and possibly face their wrath in the form of rebels or full-scale invasions. New gameplay features including a new Tributary system, Chinese Mercenaries, and much more will make the Transoxiana and India regions come alive with new surprises and challenges for even the most seasoned despot.
Flatter the Emperor with gifts of gold or concubines. Ask favors from the mighty prince. Stay on the good side of his appointed marshals on your borders.
Jade Dragon will feature:
The Imperial Majesty Request:
A new “China Screen” lays out the status and desires of the Emperor of China, letting you keep tabs on what he wants and how to earn his grace
Kow-tow For Now:
Submit to the Empire as a tributary, always keeping an eye on the waning power of the Emperor, so you can time your escape to freedom
Booty and the East:
Collect wondrous new Chinese artifacts for your characters; explore a new Silk Road system that adjusts returns based on China's stability
Dictionary of Chinese Characters:
New Chinese and Tibetan portraits and Chinese units bring the empire to life
Eight New Casus Bellis:
You can never have enough
Makes playing Eastern nations significantly more interesting+ More de Jure Kingdoms+ New Cassius Bellis; As a small nation in the East you are no longer eaten by hordes as a tribute state of China++ New interesting events+ Tibet is no longer a black block+/- border dispute Cassius Belli in larger nations priceless +/- Tibetan potraits look in my opinion somewhat strange and inappropriate - China is much too strong; It is not unusual for the Byzantine Empire to become a tribute state of China - Without Rajas of India DLC one cannot play most nations that should be affected by this DLC, including the Tibetan peoples - Compared to other 15 Euro DLCs low-content conclusion:If you like to play Eastern nations, the DLC is definitely worthwhile, because a lot of air has been brought into these areas. As paradox said, it doesn't feel like being at the end of the world when you reach the easternmost point of the map. But if you only play Western nations, then this DLC doesn't really do much good. Most of the features can only be used with an Eastern nation, because China has only a certain action range, which expands with the length of the game, but has really come far only late. For the new Cassius Bellis, the 15 euros are not worth it. On the whole, however, it was quite an expansion.
