Great stuff. Really liking the navigable rivers and naval terrain (totally didn't steal that from HOI4 ).
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.
As for religion, Johan, you got it wrong. People don'twant more and different moddifiers. That doesnt change the way you play or give you more depth and flavour. It just changes the amount of X you get.
I'd like religios mechanics that were entwined with the political system, differently depending on the culture and religion. Currently, the pontifex or augur in Rome does NOTHING but give you a modifier. Thatas boring and lame. I want those characters to represent all the political power and influence they really had at the time, not just be two placeholders to get a modifier on stability cost and omen power.
For instance, if you don't get along with the pontifex, you're not gonna be able to do loads stuff. THe Senate wont support you for most things, as they wont think you are blessed or that the gods are against you and that anything you do will be "cursed" or doomed to fail because of that.
I dont know, you have characters. USE them for Gods sake for other than being a stat on which a modifier depends on. Government doesnt even feel like government. Its just placeholders for different modifiers. That is lame and borings. Each office should really do things. A Tribune of the plebis should be asking you every now and then to change laws. And if you dont, he will get mad, and the freemen will get unhappy. And so on and on. But with each character in each office.
Please, consider giving more depth to both religion and government. Dont reduce them to just placeholders to get more modifiers. Make them actually feel alive and that they do hold an important office that does REAL stuff.
