Great to hear its only a week off

Is the change in Catholicism it being swapped out for a heresy with the same name, or are religions now dynamic and able to be changed by events?
And if it happens, will the throne of st. peter be able to re-assert itself, or be re-asserted by a strong catholic ruler, as an orthodoxy on meeting the right conditions?

And anychance that titles can copy the history of other titles on creation so the Roman Empire if founded by the EREmperor will keep the EREs numbering? As EU3 tags could?

Born in the Purple and the ability to castrate and blind prisoners are unique to the Byzantines, and will only be in the DLC.
Will the requirements be moddable? Surely the pagan and fantasy would benefit from alittle castrating and blinding for those with the DLC to unlock them

Is this tied to greek culture, the byzantine culture group, or the empire itself? Would an independent armenian ruler be able to use the blind and castration events?

Goose, can you confirm the rumor that the next CK II DLC pack will focus on Zoroastrianism, Persia and a decision to reform the Achaemenid Empire? :D

(This rumor may or may not have been started by myself. Just now.)

Seriously, though, any news on Ethiopia's ability to survive? Has anything to represent the Baqt been implemented in 1.07/LoR? I know you guys have revamped the religious setup in that area (which is great) but we need a way to help Miaphysites survive the Muslim hordes, as historically they were very tolerant of one another.

ahh i see - what are the banners for?
There have been some graphical updates to the game, to better distinguish between armies and title shields on the map. This will be included for free in the patch.

Born in the Purple is only for the Byzantines obviously, but blinding and castration will be available to independent Greek rulers as well.

Will factions be an actual and constant threat or just a mild annoyance like plots? I hope that the Empire would have to fight civil wars every now and then like in real life - now playing the Byzantines becomes far too easy after a generation or two.

How about the son of a Byzantine crown prince? Would he count as born in the purple due to his grandfather being current emperor?

I assume you guys have tried to balance Anatolia to reflect the Byzantine state to model the way the Normans, Turks, etc. were all critical threats to the Empire in this period?

Oh, who am I kidding. That won't sell as well as Byzantines sacking London.

Yes, the Roman Empire will inherit the title history from the Byzantine Empire, and modders will be able to change the blinding, castration requirements if they want.

I imagine the Pope would become the Orthodox Patriarch of Rome.
