    There must be some limits to that, though. Switzerland going Confucianist shouldn't be possible without outright cheating.

    We were just referring to the game's moddability.

    Personally I'm either gonna start with England or Brandenburg. A Russian state would be pretty cool to start with also. Would try to trigger the Russian Revolution of some sort WAY early.

    After the tutorial, the first state maybe Poland, it's a really good nation to begin with.
    I never player Manchu in EU3, so my first serious game would certainly be Jianzhou Jurchens:
    1. Unite Jurchen states
    2. Make mongol tribes bow to Manchu domination
    3. Conquest of China proper

    I'm also looking forward to a Kurland game.

    So, you did not get fedup with the present tribal government troubles!? Or are you up for a BIG challenge?


    By the way, try some OPMs, 2PMs or 3PM for stability balance...

    Good taste.

    Hope we have the choice to form Prussia after we're tired of beating up the slavic nations and the infidels.

    At least I'm not the only one in trouble, my neighbours have the same problems, I just have to be better than them

    And about the Mossi Kingdoms in particular: "They followed and still follow traditional African faiths."

    Good luck

    The Mossi immigrated into Burkina Faso from northern Ghana around the turn of the 11th century. They displaced the original inhabitants known as the Yonyonse, and began forming complex states with strong militaries focused on the use of cavalry. The Mossi successfully defended their new home from Mandinka and Songhai Muslims and even captured territory in Mali at times. They followed and still follow traditional African faiths.
    See, I have cavalry, so there is hope! I'll unite the tribes and valiantly spread the fetishist faith!... or die trying!

    The dev. at the time wasn't- though I can't remember what thread it was in, s/he said that it would be 'fairly easy to change religions', but of course said there would be limitations, such as that the nation has to know the religion exists, and I'd assume have people of that religion in its boarders.

    I guess that changed though? Too bad.

    The dev was me and yes I was. And I keep it is fairly easy to change religions... but in modding terms. Meaning, it's easy to mod religions in or out.

    Just to answer your doubt, under most circunstancies its not easy to change religions in the game... unless forced, in which case it is enough to lose the right war.

    I'm so edgy, I've been called a sword.
    I'm so rational, I've been mistaken for Descartes.
    I'm so noble, I've been crowned a King.
    I'm such a rebel, I rebelled from the Rebel Alliance, and then rebelled from that Rebellion.
    I have such little admiration, I shot myself in the face twice in order to prove how little of an achievement surviving a gunshot is.
    I'm so manly, my muscles have muscles, and those muscles work out regularly.
