Summary:[edit | edit source]

As you traverse the world of A Clash of Kings, set in the George R.R. Martin universe, you will experience randomly timed, text-based mini events that require the player to make a decision based on a set scenario. They will appear on your screen in a manner similar to a global notification, such as the ones describing factions declaring war/peace/trade agreements/truces with each other, but not in the game log. While these mini events are in progress, it seems as if the player is unable to do anything else before making a choice from a given list. I will try to create broad headings with links to other pages so that this page isn't overly cluttered, so if a mini event involves bandits in some way, it'll be found under the Bandits page. I'll also try to refine this system as I go.

When do these mini events occur?[edit | edit source]

These events can occur in rapid succession, with multiple instances in a single game "day," or one could go several "days" without a single event. They only occur on the world map to your hero while you are traveling in your own party. This means that you will never be hit by a mini event (as far as I've seen) when you're spending time in a town, garrisoning a fort, or traveling with a lord as a soldier in his army under the freelancer mod. Basically, you get these mini events while traveling under your own banner regardless of which faction, if any, you belong to or which quest or mission you may be on at the time. I am not sure at this time if you also get them while just holding down ctrl-space or camping in an area for a time, but I will test this as I (and hopefully others) continue to add to the content in this section.

What do these mini events do?[edit | edit source]

The mini events cover a wide variety of possible situations and outcomes, some positive, some negative, some insane and some just completely random. Many of the mini events have clearly obvious "good" and "bad" choices, where the player might have to decide between giving money to the poor or murdering a box of orphaned kittens. Others have choices that are less obvious or have outcomes that seem disproportionate or random compared to the choice made. Some mini events seem to do nothing at all, which may be a bug or may be intentional. On the whole, however, I think the mini events are quite interesting and provide a great way to break the monotony of traveling around.

What is the purpose of this guide?[edit | edit source]

I will be attempting to list all of the various random mini events and their possible outcomes, to take some of the guesswork out of playing the game. Be warned that some mini events have no harmless choices and you can only limit the degree to which you get hurt. Please note that I'm doing this the long way, actually playing the game, rather than just going into the mod files and finding the event scripts and outcomes--mainly because I'm lazy and don't feel like wading through all those lines of text, but also because it seems to be a less "cheating" way to go about this. If anyone knows an already existing guide covering these mini events please save me some time and link it or copy/paste them here.

Some events will only start occurring once another certain event has happened: You become a vassal, you travel to a certain area or you start your own kingdom.

Warning![edit | edit source]

You should be very careful while making choices, even if it seems as though you've seen the mini event before. The person or persons responsible for programming the mini events decided to be evilly clever and set a number of situations with similar choices but the text varies ever so slightly. For example, I've run across three different mini events where it asks you to choose what to do with some mushrooms, always with the same options of eating them yourself, giving them to your party, or passing them by, yet the description of the mushrooms are different each time. One set of mushrooms is good, one is bad, and one was described as being brown and foul smelling so I simply avoided them. Read the text carefully or else you might fall victim to a permanent stat loss or something even worse.
