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.
Huh, surprise Hussites.
Which nations got the new mission trees?
Isn't this still pretty ahistorical? As far as I'm aware, the only amicable changes in the ruling dynasties of European states were the result of strategic marriages; the children can't be both Habsburgs and Trastámaras, after all. It might make at least some sense if the new heir had a weak claim and was of the same dynasty to represent a ruling family frantically searching for a new heir to prevent another, potentially foreign, family from taking the throne.And I want to finish with some changes to the Introduce new heir mechanics. First up England starts with 100 Legitimacy again and in cases like the War of the Roses, Granadan Succession war or other similar things, we will instead be looking at claim strength of the heir or check if the dynasty is of the correct one to avoid cheating yourself out of it. Also to not allow you to cheat out of being a potential junior partner in a PU, anyone you have a royal marriage with will gain a Claim Throne CB on you.
Thanks for the wonderful dev diary. One question/suggestion. Would you be open to changing the color of the caliphate tag? The current sand color looks very similar to the Mamluks. My suggestion would be some kind of black color. Basically, a resurrection of the caliphate draws inspiration from the previous ones, but the foundational one is the Rashudin under Mohammad. If memory serves me right, his battle standard was a solid black flag or banner. If not that color, perhaps a green color (that is different than Arabia) as green has historically been associated with Islam.
