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.
I agree that mod looks awesome.
I don't think fantasy mods for ck3 are what people want though.
I don't want a specific setting, or an original setting, I want a self generated settings based on my own whims.
More stellaris less warhammer40k.
Idea for a possibly fitting system: Adventurer groups. Form them, watch them roam, give them quests, they clear dungeons Stellaris archeology style. Gear and level system?
Stellaris + Majesty: The GSG
I agree. The character focus that people want in a fantasy grand strategy game would be on heroes and questing. The dynasty/genealogy focus of CK3 does not fit. Also people want randomized maps and a variety of customizable fantasy settings.
CK3 has 'hero's' enough without them being inherently stronger than other characters.I think a dedicated hero system fits with a fantasy strategy game. It is standard for the genre and would unlock the lost potential of a character system in games like Stellaris. That game already has dedicated characters that are more central to gameplay than others (scientists), it is just that the game as is does not develop this potential.
What would a fantasy game be with a magical world to explore without heroes?

I'm find with god tier characters that can become known as heros. I just want them all to start out decently normal or have a backstory or special item or something to justify the fact that they're god tier.
Like how in stellaris the chosen one is a god tier character that shows up and has plenty of lore for why he's god tier. In ck2/3 it's essentially the same as Genghis khan showing up.
I would love to see great 'hero's' or 'villians' as crisis for players to play around or within.
The only kind of 'hero' I don't like it when the only reason they're a hero is because gamey meta gameplay reasons and not lore reasons. All characters in game should play by the same rules. Even if the ruleset allows for godheros to appear often.
Oh yeah that sounds good. Kind of like a more intensive and better version of knights in ck3. Maybe they could join the military or go on quests and do 'councilor' type tasks. Maybe the quests could be like the anomalies in stellaris.I agree that undying "god-tier" characters are not as much fun or immersive for game play. I like how PDX has generally treated characters as limited mortals in other games. I think you are misunderstanding my proposal, perhaps I was not clear.
Among the characters in your empire, you would be able to select a limited number to act as "heroes". Being a hero would open characters to special actions and benefits, hero-class skill trees (fighter, wizard, cleric, etc). Heroes would have limited powers and be mortal, unless somehow transformed in immortals or undead. In this way, the game would have some aspects of fantasy RPG while being principally an empire management game.
