An oldie, but a goodie - pope always finds a way to somehow convert away from catholic faith, despite best efforts by PDX.

This time, it doubled down by becoming Defender of Reformed Faith (and re-takes it every time it loses it by not joining defensive wars against reformed countries).

The Pope is Reformed in my England->GB missions achievement run as well. If I ever end up on a war with the Holy Father, I will force convert him back to the True Faith - but he seems quite shy about allying with anyone likely to get in my way...

A reformed pope is likely due to the bugged Calvin Becomes Spiritual Leader of Geneva event (see more discussion in e.g. this thread).

TBH I'm OK with Paradox not fixing it. This is real flavor :)

As we all know, historically accurate alliance between the triple entente - Ottomans, Muscovy, Holy Roman Emperor (Bohemia).

They've been allied for at least 50 years now, i think tension may arise now that the Ottomans and Bohemia ate Hungary.

They're all involved in the 30 years war, backing the Catholics as all good Sunni and Orthodox are known to do....

So... I let the nobility with 0 influence. I know that it is normal to have them with 0 land, but this had never happened to me. Mostly due to a combination of events that went south for them. It is a shame, since I'm prepping a war with Russia, and the extra manpower recovery would be nice.

Alas, Force Religion cannot be used in peace deal against Papal States - I've tried. It's not even on the list.

And as I just found out, you can't even force catolicism on the pope when he's your vassal. Which brings me to my next Strange Screenshot™ about a stubborn reformed pope. :)

if the last rebellious province of a particular rebel type changes which rebel type it's contributing towards (usually as a result of sending a missionary or a missionary finishing), all the accumulated rebel progress transfers over to the new rebel type. Normally if that brings it over 100%, though, the rebels should instantly spawn...

You are right, but if none of the provinces that would spawn rebels has any unrest, the rebels will not spawn and instead, the progress will start decreasing 10% at a time. You can easily see this during the Castilian civil war, if you let both particularists and pretenders reach ~70% progress and then you end the disaster (by increasing stability). Then, the progress of the pretenders will be added to the particularists (getting to 140%!) but as none of the contributing provinces has any unrest any longer (because the unrest they had was because the civil war), the progress will decrease without spawning rebels. This is the case of the OP.
