Questions about money
Right now I'm playing a game as (now) Duke of Bavaria (started, as God intended it, as House Wittelsbach in Niederbayern), and while playing a number of questions concerning money-sources came to my mind (yes, income might be a bit low as lowly count of Niederbayern):
- How does the came calculate the amount of plundered money from a siege? It seems to be around the base tax, but always some amount off.
- Are there purely monetary inheritances within the game? At one point I suddenly noticed ~400 ducats more in my coffers (which was nearly empty before, because I went on a building spree only days before). It seems a former courtier died, to be exact my divorced ex-wife, and sent me all of her cash?
- I went bankrupt while faking claims and then got me the 200 ducats from the event. It says I will have to pay it back some years later with 50% interest, but noting ever happened (ruler didn't die). What actually should happen in this scenario? or is it never necessary to repay the sum?
You inherit any vassals or your courtiers who don't have a heir. So some courtiers and advisors usually leave all their wealth to you as some of them don't have heirs. Sometimes they have quite much money.
Its always necessary to pay the sum back. Are you sure you didn't just accidentally dismiss the window when it popped up.
The best thing is installing an antipope and getting the one you deposed in your court. That 40k inheritance...
