I wonder if I have a anti-pope and later conquer the whole papacy, will something happen?
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.
If it is a claim, how and who can press it?Yes. An antipapacy is actually just a claim on the title to the real papacy.
That's a good question. I doubt the Papal State's two or three provinces will need all of the gold it will be receiving from all of Europe. I also wonder how so much money will be spent.So what's the pope going to do with the mountains of gold he will probably be receiving?
Would be really cool if he could fund crusades or something. Like give gold to high piety rulers that are participating in the crusade.
Yes.Are you saying that for example if France supports an Antipope France may declare war on the Pope and try to force him to abdicate? Will other countries (for instances, the Holy Roman Emperor) be able to help the current Pope continue being Pope?
No, there is no Papal Controller.Also, does the figure of Papal controller continue to exist? Do they get special benefits from the Pope like an higher likelihood of having their requests granted?
There is no Jewish religion in the game.What about Judaism? I don't think that Judaism can be ignored as the jews are very important in Spain at the time and even have independent territories near the Caspian sea. - until that nasty horde arrives...
Of course the Jewish nations should be playable - nothing like a recreation of Israel 900 years premature
Claims work mostly like in CK, except that they are rarer. You will more often want to press the claims of your courtiers and vassals.If it is a claim, how and who can press it?
May I assume that there will be a way to press some other character's claim ? Like, our king can be press his Antipope (or his nighbour ?)' claim ?
Or there will be a sort of "elective" system involving bishops (for example, when a majority of bishops recognize the antipope, this one become the legitimate Pope) ?
And can rulers recognize a "foreign" Antipope as legitimate ?
Better than my wildest dream. Please hybernate me and wake me up when the game is out. I cannot wait anymore !Claims work mostly like in CK, except that they are rarer. You will more often want to press the claims of your courtiers and vassals.
Dynasties have their own Coats of Arms in CKII, separate from titles.I must say I'm excited about that. But:
I don't like the coats of arms. They look too XVIIth Century, so flashy and so baroque. What about taking a look at some XIV-XVth Century armorials? There's plenty of books of arms out there.
Also, please, tell me you will remake heraldry. CK1 heraldry was awful and inaccurate. I will help, if needed. Many people here made submods with the right heraldry for the provinces (I'm thinking about that magnificent mod that gave Sweden the right heraldry for the main families, instead of nowadays regional coats of arms).
The Pope will still exist. Nothing in particular will happen if you conquer Rome as a Catholic (though you won't garner any favor with the Pope, obviously.)I meant if you conquer the land, if you conquer Rome and you have a anti-pope what will happen. And what will happen of you "just" conquer Rome?
