  • Gold cost of Decrees has been halved
  • The People’s Army Decree for Mierce now gives supplies instead of a movement distance bonus

Faction Mechanics

  • Raiding now affects Legitimacy. Raiding enemies increases Legitimacy, raiding neutrals or your own reduces it. Number of units raiding has an impact on how big this value is
  • Legitimacy: natural decline occurs if the player is at war and not doing anything to change Legitimacy
  • New Here King mechanic now hooked up to the old dilemmas, and changed payloads for a few of the events
  • Raiding and sacking now contribute to Tribute mechanic. Similarly to Legitimacy, number of units raiding impacts amount added to Tribute.
  • Slave mechanic changed to be a Slaves GDP mod, and the Thrall building chain now gives bespoke Slaves income rather than Commerce income
  • Burghal mechanic effect bundles are now weighted by tax level and war level. Public order bonuses removed from them entirely, and going to war is now generally a positive
  • Souterrain now gives +5 Legitimacy for each level built, losing the building will also lose Legitimacy
  • Stone of Destiny reward changed from being a temporary reward bundle and a trait for the faction leader to instead be a strong permeant trait for the faction leader. It now gives the following bonuses:
    • +2 influence
    • +1 loyalty for all characters
    • +100% bodyguard unit size
    • +3 zeal
    • +20% church income in all regions

  • West Seaxe starting vassal personalities all set to defensive
  • The diplomatic penalty from Great Power has been increased
  • AI budgeting now more biased towards military budget
  • Reduced trait trigger chances to lower rate at which they are gained
  • Increased threshold for low public order, low loyalty and low influence related traits to trigger
  • Removed loyalty gain from winning civil war battles as it was too easy to stack up large loyalty bonuses from this
  • Now possible to lose certain politics related traits
  • Legendary Traits have had their trigger points reduced to be more inline with other traits
  • ‘Treaty of Alfred & Guthrum’ effect bundle now prevents them from declaring war on each other, if one trespasses on the others territory the restriction is lifted
  • Added a chance for neighbouring AI factions to declare war on the player based on a number of factors
  • Increased income from raiding and sacking
  • Removed loyalty penalty for a subordinate being given an office
  • Base -2 loyalty penalty for being removed as a governor has been removed, as the new gain ‘Lost Governor Status’ and ‘Lost General Status’ now give loyalty penalties

  • Removed Quartermaster bonus to movement distance of armies in province when governor, only now applies when leading an army
  • Reduced public order bonuses and penalties certain traits and wives gave

  • Movement distance bonuses from technologies reduced


  • Reduced speed of siege towers and rams
  • Reduced speed at which soldiers climb siege towers
