The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
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.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?
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."Your character suffers from 'dragon skin' - or dermatitis - and is presumed to be of demonic birth. -5 Diplomacy; more likely to be Excommunicated."
Finally you admit what CK is all about. Using the studbook to breed the most powerful line ...This legacy track is optimal for those wanting to play the breeding game, trying to get the best possible rulers to succeed them.
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.Oh man, will I ever chose any Legacy other than Kin?
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.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.
Blood magic I guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯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?
