The tutorial for Crusader Kings 3 puts players in a comfortable position for learning the basics of the game. You start as Petty King Murchad Donnchad of Munster in 1066 AD, and by the end of the tutorial, you’ll be within a few steps of re-establishing the High Kingdom of Ireland, which will ensure you keep your lands when Murchad dies (more about that later).

Crusader Kings 3 is a complex game, but Murchad’s strong position and his possession of claims to multiple counties in Ireland help get a quick start. There are also plenty of logical paths to take once you form the Kingdom of Ireland. Scotland and England both are just a sea away and are ripe for conquest in the aftermath of the Norman invasion.

Be aware of your character’s strengths and weaknesses

Each character has five stats that measure their abilities. Diplomacy, Martial, Stewardship, Intrigue, and Learning all control different aspects of ruling and will heavily influence your choices as you play out a ruler’s life. You can influence these stats by route of education and guardianship when your heir is young. Still, sometimes you’re thrown a curveball and have to deal with playing a ruler that isn’t quite what you wanted.

Characters also have traits that can provide negative or positive bonuses. For example, Wrathful will give a bonus to a character’s Martial stat and Dread but impose negative modifiers on their Diplomacy and Intrigue. Again, players can have some influence over these by making certain choices during random events, but some of them are hereditary.
