Begin by playing as normal, keeping your holdings under the limit for the time being. This way, you’ll get 100% of your domain holdings’ output at first. Do this until you have 10 times the number of counties in your realm as you have in direct holdings. Basically, start as you usually would – expanding and not being too rash. Set up your religion. You can set up a new denomination of your faith and choose the tenets under which you run it.

Wes Fenlon: Taking a slightly different approach to this question—if I could only play games from one specific console, I think I'd go with the PlayStation 2. Its library was just immense, full of games from Japanese developers across a wide range of budgets and styles, and because it was the dominant console of the generation, every cross-platform game was guaranteed to be on the PS2. 3D gaming was in its ugly duckling phase on the N64 and PS1, but generally looked and played much better by the early 2000s.
