24 Stewardship* is excellent even for a player tutored mid game ruler. That's 9 holdings with no penalty- I was beating the Seljuks without even raising realm levies and still in the black cash wise. It isn't even just the high stewardship as his traits are perfect for stopping civil wars and rebellions, I had ambitious heretic Armenians who still loved him.
Hey? Alex doesn't really have very good stats. I've had better in children I've grown, and I've seen a lot better in random courtiers. (I've been picking Geniuses with Humble or Trusting as my dukes.) I suppose he fares well compared to other 'pre-generated' characters at game start, though.
*That's Basileus Alex, I guess Doux Alex could have lower stats or BGA could differ stats wise from CK2+.
I don't think my alex had over 15 anything at doux, though he lost bravery and had a couple other trait mutations. Also, being maimed at age 31 really crimps your style. But it may be a mod diffrtence.
In Toronto = no ck2. planning to just take back asia minor, leave the armenian region as buffer then go for italy. Apulia is locked in a stalemate with the muslims.
