There are a few things to get used to while playing as the rebels.

-The only naval unit that the rebels can create is a war galley (pirate cogs appear at arbitrary times)

-If you lose a battle all your forces that participated in the battle will be killed

-Armies and agents come onto the map at random

-You start with 5000 florins, but it will go quickly and greatly into the negitives

-You may (although rare) get a region because it rebeled

-You have no family tree and no faction leader, however every turn (or almost) a message will appear asking if you want to adopt ______ as the benefactor


-If you don't start off with a heretic you may want to start over until you get one

-Try to start making money as fast as possible

-When taking out a faction try to either only eliminate the family (that way you don't have to take the city) or keep the family members alive so you get them as generals.
