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.
- all muslims without tech group and geographical restrictions?
Why would you want to give any land to the clergy with those stats?
The millet system was used quite prominently in the Abbasid Empire. The Nestorian patriarch was for example considered the head of the Assyrian people. When they revolted, the patriarch was executed because the caliph considered him the head of the "Assyrian nation."About time! Tying it to control over development also seems like a pretty smart move, one can simulate an estate's control over land in this matter.
I should point out here that the millet "system" as defined in older histories (and wikipedia) has since 1982 been proven to be a historical myth which projects the nineteenth century organization of Ottoman minorities backwards into the Early Modern period. Probably won't have any impact on the game, but we'll see how it pans out.
For faction, as the system is available in vanilla, the estate could simply replace it when you have the expansion, like privateer work differently whether you have WoN (or ED) or not...The problem with estates replacing or interacting with features like Ming factions, the Dutch Republic or parliaments is probably that Estates will be a paid feature which would create all kinds of problems.
The situation is kind of a mess tbh.
This feature has great potential. I pray you don't leave it unrealised.
