With a recent update, counties appear to have a new property "region" (or maybe it was always there but only now it appears on the GUI).

For example, Worcester is part of "region_british_isles"[sic], which is part of "Western Europe" which is part of "Europe".

Do regions have any ingame effect?

  • Being local to those parts I just want to point out it's written (and sort of pronounced) "Worcester" :) – James Elderfield Jul 17 '15 at 15:26

From the May 26th Dev Diary:

First, regions isn't something that is going to affect you directly but it works somewhat like how it have done in the Europa Universalis Games. It's an area on the map that denotes a region with a name and it's mostly used to improve on our localization of things, such as hunting for tigers in India or hunting a deer in western Europe. So no longer will you find Tigers in the woods of Poland if you manage to move your capital of your Indian Empire out of the subcontinent. You can see these regions by opening up a province and click on the new region icon to get an outline of the region. It's also possible to search for regions in the old title finder.

In short, it is a modding and event feature, allowing to know where in the world an event takes place. This is not something you, as a player, will interact with (unless a decision requires you to control all region, for example)


It's been a while since this question's been asked, so I'm providing an updated response for anyone who comes looking for an answer to the same question, as there are actual player uses for regions in the current version of CK2.

For players who have the Jade Dragon DLC, realms in the 'far east' region can interact with China. I don't know if this one is for 3.0 or for players with Holy Fury, but a Christian controlling the whole 'near east' region can form the Empire of the Outremer.
