Scaly? That's new, could we get a picture to get a better idea of what it is?

It would be interesting to have "temporary negative" legacies. If that makes any sense. Better call them "dynasty wide temporary modifiers".
Basically, one of your dynasty members commits a terrible act, which puts the entire dynasty to shame. Either he is excommunicated or committed kinslaying or high treason. Such acts would surely put a stain on all who are related to him.
OF course, these negative modifiers would not be permanent, but would last for a certain amount of time.

I love it, but one question; Does the AI take into account certain legacies when making their decisions? For example they will probably see the +2 Prowess from House of Warriors since it's a flat value, but will they see me (or my kinsmen) with Mostly Fair and Faithful Magistrates and think, hmm, they would be great marcher lords?

You don't get renown by "just existing" you get renown based on how prestigious titles dynasty members hold. You get more for being a king than a Duke. And if you are a King you don't get any renown from your vassal brother in your kingdom but you would if he ruled over a duchy in another nation.

But yeah I agree to a point about performance not mattering. Like a godly king should get more renown than a craven king everyone hates. Just might be hard to balance I guess?
There is a (small) amount of renown gained solely from the number of living dynasty members. But that is far overshadowed by the gain from having dynasty members hold as high level titles as possible in realms that are not your own. In the stream you can see that you get 1 renown per king of your dynasty.

I want to try all of these, which really excites me. And I am even MORE excited that my family can indeed be known for producing dwarfs!

Also, do we know weather or not we can reform a religion to hold dwarfs in high regard?

where did you see that? was it in a stream or preview? and more to the point what does it actually look like, because now my mental image is straight up snake men.

This legacy track is optimal for those wanting to play the breeding game, trying to get the best possible rulers to succeed them.
Finally you admit what CK is all about. Using the studbook to breed the most powerful line ...
I am always looking for good traits like beauty, intelligence, claims to breed into my family tree.
I hope that at one point in the game the actual bloodlinse do reappear somehow...

You can always never use them and instead use them elsewhere, as stated in the second paragraph.

Thanks for thos Dev Diary, it is great information!

I am curious about the AI and existing Dynasties. For example, will the Karlings of Ragnar's sons in the Great Heathen Army, or the Abbasids have any legacy path progress when the game starts? I know you mentioned that for playability they would not (so you, as a player who uses one of these characters, can forge their own path). But it would be cool to see some strong AI dynasties since the beginning of the game. Or else a Karling will be just as dynasty-legacy-powerful as some randomly generated count in the edge of the world.

Also it would be cool to see specific dynasties go down a specific path with time. Like Habsburgs going down the legacy path that favours... their thing ;)

Oh man, will I ever chose any Legacy other than Kin?
With a certainty: as the author explained, even while not focusing on them, you could still fill out roughly 2 legacy tracks per game. Plus, if you only ever complete the 'kin' legacy track in your games, you will be missing out on the six other interesting tracks.

However, ultimately the choise is yours.

Do you feel like earning renown just by existing is kinda problematic? I can have a dynasty full of cowards be known for their glory, or a dynasty full of schemers known as pious/ studious. This makes it weird sometimes right? It's not like the personal tree where being in-chararacter helps u earn them faster.
I personally don't. Dynastic renown represents name recognition. The broader your dynasty spreads, the more worldwide name recognition they have, meaning their gravitas rises. The line of Caesar produced plenty of cowards and mad tyrants, yet we still know them as one of the most prestigious bloodlines in history. Why the renown is gained isn't as relevant for a dynasty as it is for an individual, as all your contemporaries will see is how broad your tree is.

How do you influence chance of having better traits? From where does that come from? What acts did you perform which made your kinsmen 400 years later more fertile? How are you able to pick a genetic trait that is more likely to appear for your children?
Blood magic I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
