I've tried the Cult of Pleasure Vortex Campaign THRICE now. And every time, EVERY time, it keeps kicking me in the balls.
First I have to secure my province and destroy the Bleak Holds, fine. Except there's an imminent rebellion EVERY several turns because public order's at rock bottom and I have to build it up WHILE I'm rebuilding my towns AND build up my military AND trade resources. And EVERYONE's demanding a defensive or military alliance but NOBODY will give me a trade agreement.
Oh, and for some reason, there's a flipping Tomb King right behind me who's declared war on me twice, rejected a non-agression pact, THEN demanded I pay for a non aggression pact and, predictably, after I told him where to go and what to do when he got there, declared war a third time. Oh, and one more thing; As soon as I'm about to march on the Bleak Hold with a mediocre army, a Beastman Horde popped up and razed Iron Peaks.
HOW, exactly, are you supposed to do this campaign?
I suppose I should just be grateful for the views...
