Nor Uranium, Oil, Lumber, Fresh Water, Gold, Silver, Nickel, Aluminum, Natural Gas etc. :P
I know all about this that's why they will be mine.  Probably after I get rid of the stupid democracy and replace it with a dictatorship.

I have them too.  I usually keep them in reserve for the attack when the my lines stall.  Fun when extra battalions of MBTs come in with A10s and A20s.  :D

Impressive sir.
Wars against the pagan tribes of the Baltic coast was easy enough, as they went into wars against each other, HRE and Sweden quite often. And I got Jacwiez from a good marriage with a local countess.
But now, I'm between HRE, which seems to be constantly suffering from civil wars, and a unified Rus. Future prospects of expansion seem rather slim at the moment, but I have managed to secure strong ties to Rurikovich family, the rulers of Rus, via various marriages. Same with the HRE.

Might look towards the Holy Land, when the next crusade is coming up, but we will see.

Also, economy of Poland is strong: Krakow, Danzig, Marienburg, Opole and Plock are extremely rich, so I'm happy with that.

I'm just upset about the fact that I'm going to loose the direct rule of Danzig with next succession, but I'm trying to figure out an answer for that too.

Assasins would do the trick.

Currently in favor of giving it to my oldest son after the current king reaches an age of 60 or so. That way I would be able to have it back when he inherits his father's position, and it would only remain out of my reach for a minimal amount of time. I just have to hope that the current king doesn't die too early. :P

I can also change the inheritance laws into more sensible ones after the current king dies, so that would then fix these inheritation problems for the generations to come.

I was also wondering, how many land do you give an average vassal, is there a limit you keep for the amount of titles one can have?
I allways got some problems when a king dieds they rarely support his succesor, how do you stop that from happening?

I usually try to keep my vassals relatively small so that they won't pose a large threat if they decide to rebel: Even my largest vassal has something about 4 provinces under his command, compared to my 9.

Decided to do so after Miroslaw I's uncle, who happened to hate him,  inherited Duchies of Pommeria, Prussia and Lithuania after the old king died, something about 9 provinces in total. Not very surprisingly, he decided to rebel after I demanded County of Danzig from him. Civil War followed, but thankfully he didn't get any support and all the other vassals of the king stayed loyal to the crown, so his rebellion fell to pieces pretty quickly. I imprisoned and executed him, and then divided his lands into smaller duchies, so that I kept Pommeria, ceded Prussia to my cousin, and Lithuania to some random but loyal member of the king's court. :P

It's wise to change the crown authority laws to be as high as possible ASAP if you are playing as the lord of the realm with no lieges.
If you play as a vassal with few to no vassals of your own, low crown authority law is naturally better.
