Crusader Kings II: Sword of Islam expansion feature spotlight.

Sword of Islam (SoI) is the first expansion for Crusader Kings II. It was released on June 26, 2012 alongside patch 1.06.

DLC features[edit]

The expansion makes non-nomadic Muslims playable and adds a new interface skin when playing as one. AI Muslims use the mechanics even without it.

Patch features[edit]

Muslims now have their own features instead of functioning identically to Christians. Unique features for Muslims include:

  • Dynastic Decadence is increased by dynasty members with the Decadent trait. Decadence inflicts penalties to income and troops, and eventually results in a massive uprising.
  • With Iqta government, Muslims are locked to Agnatic Open succession, in which a Muslim's most powerful son will be his heir. In addition, Muslims are unable to change succession and gender laws, with other laws costing Piety to change.
  • Muslims practice polygamy and may have up to four wives. A Muslim is expected to have a number of wives dependent on his rank. This results in Muslims having many children.
  • Muslim CBs give them a very aggressive playstyle.
  • 100+ new Muslim specific events, such as problems in the Harem, Shia vs Sunni tensions and making the Hajj
  • A map extension into Mali with some new counties and titles
