Crusader Kings II closed beta sign-ups open

Paradox announces that sign-ups for the closed beta of Crusader Kings II will be open until midday on 17 October.
Interested parties can follow the link below, where they’ll be asked a series of questions to determine how kingly they are (or some stuff about what kind of PC they have, possibly).
Successful applicants will be informed through email before 24 October, so if you’ve heard nothing after that date then your scheming son probably stabbed you in the back and took the crown. Or something.
Personalities will be everything in this strategy-RPG, so remember to “keep your alliances close, your blades sharp and your wits about you at all times”.
