Hello and welcome to our latest EU4 dev diary. Following our dev diary on some of the larger HRE mission trees, there were many calls for further ones for the smaller, but still interesting nations of Germany. We agreed, and therefore I am now able to present some (but not all) of the results of this, by revealing some of the extra content we have made for the smaller electors of the HRE, by which I mean the Palatinate, Mainz, Trier and Cologne. (Note that these are not the only countries in Germany which have received some extra treatment, they are just the only ones I will present today ).

The latter three – the Bishop-Electors – were particularly hard done by in earlier versions of EU4, since they lacked their own ideas (using instead the fairly generic “Divine Ideas”) and had missions to become Emperor (a hard task for a bishopric…). I am pleased to say that both these issues have been rectified. First of all, here are their new idea groups:

kol_pursuit_of_unity:0 "The Pursuit of Territorial Unity"
kol_pursuit_of_unity_desc:0 "Our territory is geographically divided between the Rhineland and Westphalia. We have to find a way to unite our secular possessions in order to strengthen the bishopric and to centralize the government. Perhaps we can find some forgotten claims in our archives."
kol_archchancellor_of_italy:0 "Archicancellarius per Italiam"
kol_archchancellor_of_italy_desc:0 "We hold the title of Archchancellor of Italy within the Holy Roman Empire. Although this title carries little in terms of material power or responsibilities, it does bring with it a certain level of prestige, helping us earn the respect of the other princes."
kol_hanseatic_city:0 "Hanseatic Trade City"
kol_hanseatic_city_desc:0 "Because of its central location on the Rhine and its trade links to Western and Eastern Europe, Cologne has traditionally been a leading member of the Hanseatic League. Through its trade with England and its contacts in the league, Cologne has developed into a large and wealthy trade city. By encouraging its further growth, we will secure a bountiful economic dividend in future!"
kol_prime_minister:0 "Prime Minister of Cologne"
kol_prime_minister_desc:0 "The governance of a bishopric as large as Cologne requires a lot of time. In order to administrate this land, the Archbishop neglects his spiritual duties, leading to unhappiness among his subjects. By establishing the position of Prime Minister, to whom the secular administration of the Archbishopric will be delegated, the Archbishop will gain more time for the spiritual needs of Cologne's population. "
kol_pivotal_ecclesiastic_territory:0 "Pivotal Ecclesiastic Territory"
kol_pivotal_ecclesiastic_territory_desc:0 "As a Bishop-Elector and one of the largest ecclesiastic territories in the Empire, Cologne is a pivotal player in the wars of religion. Our support is likely to be key to the success or downfall of either side in the struggle. We shall make use of this opportunity to spread righteousness and religious correctness across Germany."
kol_shifting_alliances:0 "Shifting Alliances"
kol_shifting_alliances_desc:0 "The rule of a bishopric as large as Cologne requires a lot of time. In order to administrate this land, the Archbishop neglects his spiritual duties, leading to unhappiness among his subjects. By establishing the position of Prime Minister, to whom the secular administration of the Archbishopric will be delegated, the Archbishop will gain more time for the spiritual needs of Cologne's population. "
kol_order_of_saint_michael:0 "Order of St. Michael"
kol_order_of_saint_michael_desc:0 "It is our duty to bring the nobility of our territory into line with the church’s accepted beliefs in order to defend the faith in our bishopric. For this purpose, we should establish a military order open only to noblemen. This order, with St. Michael as its patron, is going to teach our nobles to pray and to receive the sacraments with a chaste soul. In this way, they will acquire the discipline and zealousness they need to defend our bishopric from its spiritual and other enemies."

mai_saint_hildegard:0 "Saint Hildegard of Bingen"
mai_saint_hildegard_desc:0 "Hildegard of Bingen, the 12th century Benedictine abbess and polymath, is revered as a saint in our region. However, her canonisation was hindered by disputes between our previous Archbishops and the Pope. But now Hildegard has finally been accepted in the Roman martyrology, which will foster even greater reverence for her - and for the church in general - among the common folk."
mai_weck_worscht_woi:0 "Weck, Worscht & Woi"
mai_weck_worscht_woi_desc:0 "Weck, Worscht un Woi - bread, sausage and wine - is a favourite meal of our subjects. Its simplicity makes it easily transportable, and therefore an optimal food ration for our army. As we possess fertile lands - and the best vineyards in all of Germany - we can easily afford to supply our troops with Weck, Worscht un Woi surely keeping their fighting morale up!"
mai_perpetual_privy_council:0 "Perpetual Privy Council"
mai_perpetual_privy_council_desc:0 "The disjointed territory that we rule has made it necessary to create an enduring central administration, the perpetual privy council. From now on, we will impose a more rigid rule on our subjects and deprive the estates of their power as well as hindering them from convening at all."
mai_rhine_fortress:0 "The Guard of the Rhine"
mai_rhine_fortress_desc:0 "The German lands have been under threat by enemies from the West ever since the Holy Roman Empire has come into existence, with many foes looking to push us back beyond the Rhine. As the strongest fortress on the west banks of the river, we are the sword and shield of the Empire and it is our holy duty to stand strong against all intruders!"
mai_fifth_season:0 "The Fifth Season"
mai_fifth_season_desc:0 "Other less enlightened countries might prohibit criticism of the nobility by the common folk, but this is not the case here in Mainz when the yearly Karneval rolls around. People are free to criticize social and political injustices under the shelter of cap and bells, imitating those of a different social rank for the day. Anyone who is not a fool at Karneval is foolish for the rest of the year!"

tri_seamless_robe_of_jesus:0 "The Seamless Robe of Jesus"
tri_seamless_robe_of_jesus_desc:0 "Helena, mother of the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great, is said to have sent the Holy Robe of Jesus to Trier (then known as Augusta Treverorum) after she discovered it in Jerusalem.

tri_prum_abbey_desc:0 "Prüm was the favourite monastery of the Carolingians, receiving many privileges and large estates from King Pepin the Short after his marriage to Bertrada the Younger, granddaughter of the founder of the abbey. Over the years, it became not only a beautiful abbey, but also a center of ecclesiastic learning. However, it has declined considerably since those days, and is unable to survive on its own. We shall take over administration of the abbey and restore it to its former glory!"
tri_domkapitel:0 "Influence of the Domkapitel"
tri_domkapitel_desc:0 "The Domkapitel or Cathedral Chapter has great influence over the Archbishopric, choosing new Archbishops, deciding when the Archbishop may summon the estates, and ruling in his stead in the case of his absence. Through their vigilance, they will see to it that Trier is always well administered, whether the Archbishop is present or not."

In terms of missions, several changes were made. First of all, all theocracies in the HRE now have three missions that replace the missions to become Emperor. Secondly, all three Bishop-Electors now share four missions with each other, two focusing on relations with the Emperor and two on relations with each other. Finally, each of the three have one or two missions of their own, to reflect their own situations.

upload_2019-7-15_15-45-56.png


Mainz’s missions in the new setup.

To begin with the missions for all HRE theocracies, the House of God requires all (or at least 10, if you have more) of your provinces to have churches or cathedrals; as a reward, if you have a church in your capital, it will be upgraded to a cathedral (if you already have one there, you will instead be granted 2 base tax). The Lord’s Army then requires that you turn newfound economic strength into an army capable of holding its ground against all unbelievers – in other words, you must have an army that is at least 30,000 men strong or stronger than those of all your neighbours. Divine Empire then requires the Reformation to be successfully navigated: 50 years after its start, 50 (out of around 80) provinces need to have whichever of the religions you opted for.

The first two bishop-elector missions are fairly uncomplicated: They require good relations with the Emperor and having voted for the Emperor in the last three imperial elections. The second two, however, are more exigent: They first require you to either ally with or conquer the other two bishop-electors, then, once the Reformation has been under way for 50 years, it requires the same again, but this time all three must be the same religion. Achieving this will grant +1% missionary strength and +1 tolerance of the true faith for the rest of the game.

Finally, as mentioned, each of the three will have their own unique mission(s). For Mainz, this would be to claim direct control of Erfurt, a Mainzian core at the start of the game. Doing this will grant claims on provinces between Mainz and Erfurt. In Trier’s case, you will be asked to build Trier University by getting the province to 15 development and making sure it has a church and a courthouse; doing this will cause a university to appear (the university tech itself appears fairly late, centuries after Trier University’s historical foundation date in 1473). Cologne will be tasked with making sure its lands are contiguous (e.g. by conquering Berg), which will then put it in a great position to dominate its ecclesiastic rival in northern Germany, Münster. Subduing Münster will make Cologne a dominant power in its part of Germany and grant claims on Hessen and the rest of the North Rhine area.

---

Moving onto the Palatinate, this nation already had its own ideas, but no missions of its own. Historically, the Palatinate were almost-achievers, in that they were for a long time one of the stronger powers in the HRE without ever becoming dominant. They were involved in numerous skirmishes and dynastic disputes with their Wittelsbach cousins in Bavaria, but gradually ceded ground to them; they led the Protestants in the lead-up to the Thirty Years War and their Elector-Palatine, Frederick V, even became King of Bohemia… only for his reign to last just a single winter (earning him the nickname “The Winter King) and lead to the loss of both his territory and his elector title, as Austria and her Bavarian allies took revenge. It would be another thirty years (until the end of the Thirty Years War, no less) until the rulers of the Palatinate were restored their lands and their titles, but they were a much-diminished force, whose lands would be mainly squabbled over by others in later years.

To do justice to their potential, we added a two-pronged mission tree:

upload_2019-7-15_15-54-0.png


The first two columns contain the new missions.

First, to make any progress whatsoever, you will have to increase your holdings to 7 cities and your armies to 15,000 men. Having done this, you will gain claims to help them unify your lands into a contiguous territory – no mean feat with the new map. If you manage to do this, and the Bavarian Wittelsbachs still exist, you will gain claims on the Wittelsbach throne(s), giving you the chance to fulfil the Elector-Palatines’ longstanding ambition of reuniting their dynastic lands (and reversing the real course of history). Finally, after cementing Palatine power in southern Germany, you can turn your attention back to west Germany and become true “Kings of the Rhine” by subjugating the majority of the provinces along the Rhine; doing this will give a permanent modifier granting +1 yearly legitimacy.

upload_2019-7-15_15-54-32.png


Many provinces now separate Heidelberg from the Oberpfalz.

The other branch of the tree first requires the Palatinate to show religious leadership. In practice, this can mean several things: Owning a Center of Reformation and having 100% religious unity is the easiest one, but one can also do it by being the leader of a Religious League or by being on the winning side of the Wars of Religion; for those without Art of War, these last two conditions are replaced by one of having five neighbours of your own religion 50 years after the Reformation started. Once this mission is fulfilled, the Palatinate’s sympathisers in Bohemia (if it is still free) will kick in and grant you a personal union CB for 25 years. Achieving a complete victory over Bohemia as the Palatinate might, however, not be easy (I speak from experience).

Once the east is secure, again, the Elector-Palatine will have to look west and make sure that no invasions from across the Rhine will threaten his lands. This can be achieved in two ways: Either the you ensure that no French nation has a larger army than yourself, or you ally with France and see to it that the two nations follow the same religion. Completing the mission in the first manner will give claims on the French border areas and Paris, but if you befriend France you will instead gain 200 diplomatic power and France as a historical friend.

Finally, now that the Palatinate is truly glorious, you will have to make sure that your court is a fair reflection of this glory by achieving 75 prestige, having three level 3 advisors, and a capital with 30 development. Doing this will give -1% prestige decay for the rest of the game.

---

One further, purely flavour-based change we made was to add a custom title to the Palatinate: Now, so long as they remain electors, their government will be known as an Electoral Palatinate, and the ruler the Elector-Palatine. Should they however lose their electorate for whatever reason, they will be known as a County Palatine, ruled by the Count Palatine. Speaking of Counts and Counties, HRE monarchies with less than 50 development will now also be called Counties and be ruled by Counts.

There seems to have been a Cisrhenian Republic (Essentially means the republic this side of the rhine, but since we've got Transoxiana...) too. Yes it's a total exonym and it only covered the west bank of the rhine but still, it's not like there have been a lack of attempts to fins a common concept for the rhineland.

It's worth pointing out that Sugla/Smyrna and Aydin/Tralles flip to Greek in bookmarks past 1700 (comments on the game code state that they "should not be Greek or Orthodox in 1444; [their] status as a majority Greek [cities] dates to at least after the 17th Century"), so perhaps a late-game event could be added which represents the Greek communities in Sugla and Aydin growing to become the province majority?
Yes this would be great change, AI should possibly always accept its event (with some positive modifiers) but it should be optional for player to accept it or not. (There could be negative modifiers if you don't accept it)

This is why I wrote my population transfers thread (my signature), there could be dev changes in Balkans and Anatolia that would help change cultures. For example Ottomans forced Cypriots to move out after they conquered,
or forced Yörük/Türkmens from Karaman region to move various places in Balkans.

I, for example, wanna see some Ottoman mission that increases missionary strength and decreases missionary maintenance for Bosnia to represent its Islamization.
These types of continuos changes would make game more fun.

Do you guys have any other demographics maps? We could also help Turkification of some provinces, new Gelibolu province might be? (This is example, I am not sure, it was possibly Greek)
BTW This isn't Balkan thread. LOL.

Maybe the AI could be given an exception for provinces with a positive mission granted missionary strength modifier. Does Bengal never convert the Delta either?

This is like 2 of the worst examples. Otto (at least Otto AI) benefits from having heathens due to janissaries, and Bengal has Indian sultanate estates, and absolutely needs the dharmic lands to use them. Arguably better to have them of another religion in the first place, why would you make any effort to convert these?

The situation is different for (for instance) christian denominations new world colonies, amongst others who won't convert but really should.

Is it possible to turn into a bishopry/Bishop-Elector and have benefits of the new patch for the HRE? Maybe create Franconia?

This is like 2 of the worst examples. Otto (at least Otto AI) benefits from having heathens due to janissaries, and Bengal has Indian sultanate estates, and absolutely needs the dharmic lands to use them. Arguably better to have them of another religion in the first place, why would you make any effort to convert these?

The situation is different for (for instance) christian denominations new world colonies, amongst others who won't convert but really should.
There's no exactly a lack of Dharmic lands in india, and the reason Bengal gets that mission is that they actually did convert it in real life, one of the few places in india that actually became Muslim majority.

@mechanical_Critter That is true but considering new amount of Balkan provinces it would still be beneficial to release Bosnia as vassal to help Ottoman's aggressive expansion problems for early. If AI never converts even with huge modifiers favoring it, should be reworked.

Ottomans having a mission for Islamization of Bosnia can be good flavour.

Cologne will be tasked with making sure its lands are contiguous (e.g. by conquering Berg), which will then put it in a great position to dominate its ecclesiastic rival in northern Germany, Münster. Subduing Münster will make Cologne a dominant power in its part of Germany and grant claims on Hessen and the rest of the North Rhine area.

Personally, I'm a huge fan of the reformation in EU4 and how it plays out and I would really love to see Osnabrück (cough, Dortmund, cough) to be part of the map, for an even more realistic Peace of Westphalia. Of course I understand that splitting up Münster and Osnabrück would be tedious and Münster actually provides one of the most interesting settings in northern Germany from a gameplay perspective right now.
I hope to see one or two historical additions to the bisphoric nation in form of decisions or missions (regarding neighbors or religion maybe). Hopefully Münster will not just become a play ball for the nations around it, but maybe an important diocese in the (alternative) history of the HRE.
Anyways I'm really enjoying the game right now and looking forward to the Update next year!

To begin with the missions for all HRE theocracies, the House of God requires all (or at least 10, if you have more) of your provinces to have churches or cathedrals; as a reward, if you have a church in your capital, it will be upgraded to a cathedral (if you already have one there, you will instead be granted 2 base tax).

This would look nice for Holy Orders :)

I don't know the holy orders in the game aren't exactly well known for their cathedral building. But getting extra fort levels on their capital perhaps? Both the TO and the Knights had an impressive fortress for their base of operations. Unsure if the LO did but 2/3 is not bad.

Sorry but the idea Sets are Kind of unmatching.

As example cologne. I live there (more or less) so I can tell a lot.

Cologne was more Diplomatic than Militaristic. The Troops were kind of weak (why discipline?). The Economy was wrecked and the provinces autonomous for example Westfalen.

Cologne had some weird annexing ambitions including Münster and berg. With berg they had in 1444 an actual inheritance contract if the leader dies which was mysteriously never worked. They had kind of a grip on Münster but in the Soest feud they almost lost it.

Cologne switched too Protestantism and back - tolerance to heretics or missionary strength is ok

Cologne ideas should focus on aggressive expansion, dip rep, dip slots, defensiveness (if you’re in cologne for games come watch for the parts of the wall. For example: https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gereonsmühle sorry just German or google Stadtmauer KÖLN which was the biggest in Central Europe in that timeframe) , trade efficiency ...

Why no one mentioned the three wise men’s shrine which led to pilgrims in cologne. That would be really great to gain something out of that.

In addition the archbishop of cologne crowned the German king because in his clerical province was Aachen where the king was crowned until 16. Century.

Sorry I’m actually in a hurry

Update: BTW. If someone suggests Cologne wasn’t capital of cologne and should instead be named Bonn, it’s false. Bonn was Capital After 1567, 1288 -1566 it was Brühl (alt.: Bruehl).

Edit2: Stadtmauer

the pink face for ulm is clearly +300% army, navy, and air morale boost for more historical accuracy. I cant waitt till they add the historical 1444 Ulmer Spitfires and F16's.

Great changes so far, I am very excited about this new update coming soon?
I have one grievance, it is very small but its erking me, so here we go.

German HRE members under 50 dev should not have their rulers be counts. All rulers of HRE countries were princes. Counts were subservant to these said princes. Making counts rulers of sovereign nations just isn't correct. The reason why so many royal houses of the world are german in some way is because every independant nation had a ruler with a level of nobility equal to other sovereign nations (princes and kings). The king of France would not marry down to a countess but marrying a princes would be acceptable.

Quick language lesson:
Graf - count
Prinz - prince
Markgraf - margrave
Fürst - Independant ruler of a country but not quite a prince

Grafen would have lands but were under the direct jurisdiction of a sovereign prince. None of the nations present during the EUIV timeline were ruled by counts.
Markgraf is a title given to the boarder regions, there rulers being style prince (sovereign) markgraf von Baden (for example). A fürst is a count who had been elevated to status of independance (only under the HREmperor).

Summary in descending order.
Holy Roman Emperor (Habsburgs - Austria usually)
Kings, Princes, Arch-Dukes, Arch-Bishops etc (all sovereigns of independant nations) (Bohemia, Austria)
Counts and other subservant feudal vassals (not sovereigns of indepedant nations)
Baron, knights etc.

Short anecdote to finish off.
My aunt married the prince of Reuss-Gera and she told a story of his father or grandfather. This man had been in love with an actress who he invited to his principilality to attend a party he was hosting. How exactly it happened I do not remember but she must have declined his advances in a way that offended him so he said, "madam I wish you to leave my kingdom within the next 24 hours" and she replied "oh dear sir, I wouldn't need more than 2". She was refering to how tiny and insignificant his lands were. --> Princes can have small countries

Edit: actually there a few branches of the reuss family, I am not sure which one.
