Религия Религия как игровая механика отражает системы верований античного мира, обычно политеистические и охватывающие широкий круг богов, и важные для всего – от повседневной жизни до высших политических эшелонов. Каждое государство, персонаж и группа населения в игре принадлежат к определённой религии, и их взаимодействие играет значительную роль в отношении Верность верности персонажей и Счастье населения довольства населения. Выбор пантеона богов и знамений в государственной религии формирует важную часть модификаторов и бонусов, которые имеет страна, и является одним из основных взаимодействий игрока с религией, наряду с механикой святых мест и сокровищ, которые создают дополнительные цели и особенности. Большинство взаимодействий с религией осуществляется в панели Иконка панели религии религии.

Государственная религия[править | править код]

Every country starts with a predefined state religion, which can be viewed just above the pantheon deities in the  Religion tab. Every religion has bonuses that are applied to the entire country, and also determines the base deities that are always available regardless of the population or holy sites of the country. State religion also has a small effect on diplomacy—countries of the same religion get a  +10 opinion bonus with each other. There is no malus for having a different state religion.

There is no default happiness bonus or penalty for pop religion, but pops will receive a  +4% happiness bonus for each deity in the state pantheon that matches their religion, making it useful for polytheistic states to take on pantheon gods of religions that are widespread inside their country - though spreading out the deity happiness bonus between deities of different religions means a smaller happiness modifier for each individual religion. The happiness of state religion pops specifically is also be increased with the  state religion happiness modifier, which is given by various omens and deities, inventions, laws, heritages, and more.

Additionally, the percentage of pops following the state religion is the nation's  Religious Unity value, which is a major component of  Omen Power.

State Conversion[править | править код]

Main article: Decisions#Religious Conversion decisions

The state religion can be changed by decision if there is at least 1 character of the new religion in the country, and either 50% of the non-slave pops in the  capital or at least 20% of all the pops of the country, as well as at least one  pantheon deity, follow the new religion the country is converting to. Switching religions can only be done once every 10 years and costs  200 political influence and  30 stability, also giving a temporary drop of  −15 Loyalty for all characters that are followers of the old faith.

Character religion[править | править код]

Each character also has their own character religion, usually but not always the same as that of the state. Characters that do not follow the state religion have a  −10 maximum loyalty modifier and will be hesitant to use the  Religious Conversion governor policy on provinces of their own religion. Pops also have a  -6% happiness penalty if the governor of their region is not of their religion - notably, this includes even state religion pops, if their governor is not of the state religion.

Characters can be forced to convert if their  loyalty is at least 60, at the cost of  +5.00 Tyranny and a temporary drop of  −30 loyalty for 5 years. There are also a few events by which a character's religion can otherwise be changed — governors may switch to the religion of the regional capital if the Religious Conversion policy is not being used, office holders may take on the religion of the state that employs them, the heir of a monarchy may switch to the religion of the Royal Tutor, and rulers may get an event to switch to the state religion if they do not follow it.

Territory religion[править | править код]

Every territory has a dominant religion, which is the religion with the highest number of pops in the territory. This is the religion as displayed for the territory in the religion map mode and is generally considered the religion of the territory for most purposes, particularly for colonization, moving the  capital, and many event and mission task checks.

Most importantly, there are also territory modifiers applied if the dominant religion is not the state religion, which makes them harder to  convert and  assimilate. Such a territory where the Dominant Religion is not State Religion gets the following modifiers:

  • -25% Pop Conversion Speed
  • -10% Pop Assimilation Speed
  • +5% Pop Demotion Speed

State religion happiness[править | править код]

State Religion Happiness modifiers are applied to all pops of the state religion, regardless of what religions the pantheon deities are of. Unlike with  integrated cultures, there is no base state religion happiness modifier, though modifiers from other sources can still add up to a significant amount that makes conquering provinces with the same religion significantly easier.

Обращение населения[править | править код]

Пока на каждой территории существует население, исповедующее негосударственную религию, каждая его единица будет по очереди обращаться в государственную (в случае, если над ней не происходит другого действие вроде ассимиляции или повышения). За исключением событий, население будет всегда обращаться в государственную религию. Прогресс обращения увеличивается каждый месяц, а его скорость определяется суммой всех модификаторов группы Скорость обращения населения. Как только прогресс достигает 100%, религия поп'а сменяется на государственную и начинается обращение следующего, если таковые доступны. На скорость обращения может влиять множество факторов, таких как политика губернатора Обращение в религию и то, являются ли доминирующая Культура культура и Религия религия в провинции государственной или нет. Обратите внимание, что процесс обращения может полностью остановиться.

При прочих равных, в общем плане предпочтительно обращать население в государственную религию, хотя штраф к довольству от негосударственной религии меньше, чем штраф от непоглощённой культуры или культурной группы. Довольство населения негосударственной религией можно увеличить, добавив в пантеон божество их религии (ценой штрафа к довольству населения других религий). Всё это делает обращение менее важным, чем ассимиляцию. При определённых обстоятельствах также может быть полезным сохранять население других религий, чтобы иметь доступ к их божествам, хотя сильный эффект от религиозного единства к Мощь знамений мощи знамений означает, что иметь слишком много населения иной религии всё же нежелательно.

Pantheons[править | править код]

Every nation has a state pantheon consisting of four deities (or prophets/yazatas/paradigms, depending on religion), one for each category: War, Culture, Economy, and Fertility. Every nation can select from a fixed list of their religion's deities to fill the slots. Polytheistic nations can additionally select from other polytheistic deities if they own that deity's  holy site, or a high enough percentage of their pops follows a given religion. The percentage required depends on the deity's rarity: Very Common deities require 5% of the nation's total pops to follow the deity's religion, Common deities require 10%, Rare deities require 20%, and Very Rare deities require 40%.

Every deity that is not part of the state religion gives a stacking  −20% conversion speed malus for all pops in the nation (regardless of whether or not their gods are currently represented in the pantheon).

Each deity has a fixed passive modifier which is in effect as long as that deity is part of the pantheon. Additionally, every 5 years (adjusted by the  Omen Duration modifier) one can invoke an omen from one of the pantheon's deities, which confers an additional, usually more powerful, bonus. The current omen's effects are multiplied by the nation's current  Omen Power, with the base effects being reached at 100% Omen Power - note that omen power is uncapped and often will rise above 100% as the game progresses. Deities whose omens are currently being invoked cannot be replaced.

Switching a deity in the pantheon costs a base of  −15 stability and prevents that deity's omen from being invoked for 3 years. The stability penalty is temporarily reduced by -75% for 10 years after converting to another religion, through the  Cost to Change Pantheon Deity modifier.

Each deity and its requirements and bonuses are listed on the page of the religion it belongs to.

Holy sites[править | править код]

See also: Treasure

A holy site is a temple, sanctuary, or other sacred site that is particularly important to the worship of a specific deity. Each deity can have one holy site anywhere in the world, and owning a deity's holy site while worshiping the deity in your pantheon increases the potency of both their passive and omen effects by +25%. There are a number of holy sites present at the start of the game, and a new one can be consecrated for a pantheon deity in an owned territory at a cost of −400 Gold and −100 Political Influence.

Holy sites confer the following modifiers to the territory they are located in, regardless of its size, status, and whether it is dedicated to a deity in the state religion/ pantheon or not:

  • +10% Local Tax
  • +1 City Building Slots
  • +5 Migration Attraction

Holy sites can hold  sacred treasures, which confer bonuses to the entire province the holy site is located in - it is therefore typically useful to bring as many sacred treasures as possible to the capital province in order to maximize the effects of their bonuses. Any treasure can be placed in any holy site regardless of its religion, but each holy site has a limited number of altars where sacred treasures can be placed, depending on the status of its territory: one for  settlements, two for  cities, and three for  metropolises. There is a fixed amount of sacred treasures in the world, with new ones only being created as a result of certain missions and events. Sacred treasures can be removed from an owned holy site whose deity is part of your pantheon at the cost of  +1.00 Aggressive Expansion.

Unplaced sacred treasures are held in the nation's  reliquary and confer no benefits, but cannot be taken through desecration. Upon annexation by conquest, the conqueror is guaranteed to seize at least 2 treasures from the reliquary, if there exist that many; above that, up to 2 treasures in the nation's reliquary will be spirited away to another country within diplomatic range if any exist, with all the rest taken by the conqueror. Diplomatic annexation, will transfer all reliquary treasures to the overlord.

Desecrating a holy site can be done at any time through the  Religion menu if it is owned, or by using the  Desecrate Holy Sites army interaction with an army located on a controlled holy site's territory - note that this is permitted even if the territory currently belongs to another nation. Desecrating a holy site destroys it and deposits all of its sacred treasures in the desecrating nation's reliquary, while the territory gets a  -10% Local Population Happiness modifier to the territory for 12 months. Using the army interaction also costs  +2.00 Aggressive Expansion. Every nation that follows the religion of the holy site's deity will receive a notification event and might lose  opinion of the desecrating country.

In the holy sites interface at the bottom of the religion menu, all holy sites in owned territories as well as those for deities currently being worshiped in the pantheon, even if currently unowned, are shown and can be selected in the list. Owned holy sites - even those of deities currently in the pantheon - can be desecrated at any time, with their treasures being returned to the  reliquary, at the cost of  -10% Local Population Happiness in the territory for 1 year (as well as the loss of the holy site itself).

Apotheosis[править | править код]

Apotheosis, or deification, is the process of deifying a past or present ruler of the country. A deified ruler inherits the effects of an existing pantheon deity, which they must be based on, but give an additional apotheosis effect bonus when their omen is invoked, the potency of which is sometimes affected by their attributes.

Monotheistic religions, such as Judaism, have pantheons consisting entirely of "deified" characters (sometimes known as prophets), and are unable to deify more. As a counterbalance to the early access to apotheosis bonuses, they can only invoke omens once every 7.5 years (as Judaism has a  +50% Omen Duration modifier). All republics except for Theocratic Republics, Athenian Republics, and Dictatorships, are also unable to deify rulers.

A number of deified characters exist in the game at the start: the Jewish prophets, Hellenic Alexander the Great, Zoroastrian Zoroaster, Buddhist Siddhartha, and Jain Mahavira. Only owners of the  Magna Graecia content pack can deify new ones. Deification costs a base of  −200 Political Influence, modified by the  Cost to Deify Ruler modifier which is decreased by several  inventions and increases based on the number of deified rulers currently in the pantheon, making each successive deified ruler more expensive. It also requires the current ruler to have at least  90 Popularity, and the current ruler's family to have at least  800 Prestige.

Every defied ruler in a nation's pantheon gives the following modifiers, stackable up to the four possible deities in the pantheon:

  • +0.01 Monthly Tyranny
  • +0.02 Monthly Ruler Popularity Gain
  • +15% Pop Conversion Speed
  • +25% Cost to Deify Ruler

Generally speaking, the most important modifier is generally the pop conversion speed, as the full +60% Pop Conversion Speed modifier if all four deities are deified rulers is very significant. Note that this modifier applies only for rulers deified during the game, and not for existing deified characters available at the beginning of the game; in particular, this means that it is generally not possible for Jewish countries to get access to the deified ruler modifiers, even if they start with access to the other apotheosis bonuses.

As a separate god, deified rulers are not affected by the  holy sites of their parent deity and may have their own holy sites created in a territory - this does mean that if a deified ruler is created out of a deity whose holy site is currently owned, the new deity will not get the +25% bonus from owning the holy site until a new holy site is created for the new deity. If a deified ruler is not part of any country's pantheon for more than 20 years, their cult will be forgotten, and the deity, including any holy sites, will no longer be available.

Divine Sacrifice[править | править код]

A Divine Sacrifice can be made to appease the people and reassure them that the country will continue to receive the favour and bounty of the gods and higher powers, and is the most reliable way to increase the  stability of the realm. A sacrifice has a base cost of  50 political power and gives the following effects for 5 years:

  • +0.15 Monthly Stability Change
  • +65% Divine Sacrifice Cost

It is possible to stack the effects of a sacrifice by making another one while the effects of the previous one(s) is ongoing, which has the additional effect of extending the length of the stacked effect by another 5 years - therefore it is beneficial to wait until the duration is almost elapsed before making another sacrifice, in order to maximize the stability gain per political influence spent. However, as the cost increase of each additional sacrifice stacks as well while the effects of the previous sacrifices are being felt, the efficiency of making additional sacrifices decreases rapidly as the number of concurrently effective sacrifices increases.

The cost of making a sacrifice is modified by the  Divine Sacrifice Cost modifier, which can be decreased through various  inventions, laws, deities, and other modifiers. All static sources are listed below.

Type Modifier Divine Sacrifice Cost
Base Divine Sacrifices +65% per concurrent sacrifice
Offices Royal Tutor (Monarchy) -2% per  statesmanship-adjusted  charisma
 High Priest (Republic) -2% per  statesmanship-adjusted  zeal
Laws Senatorial Veto (Republic) -33%

Deities Berobreo (Celtiberian Druidic deity)
  • -15% without owned  holy site
  • -18.75% with owned  holy site

Heritages Boeotian Heritage (Boeotia) +10%

Invoke Devotio[править | править код]

If a war is going badly and  war exhaustion is high, the country's ruler can Invoke Devotio to offer himself as a sacrifice in exchange for victory and strengthen the resolve of the population to fight on. Invoking devotio has a base cost of  3 tyranny and gives the following effects for 5 years:

  • -0.05 Monthly War Exhaustion
  • +50% Invoke Devotio Cost

Like with making divine sacrifices, it is possible to stack the effects of invoking devotio by making another invokation while the effects of the previous one(s) is ongoing, which has the additional effect of extending the length of the stacked effect by another 5 years. However, as the amount of tyranny gained is not particularly high and war exhaustion is generally not too problematic unless it is very high, this is generally not as important as with making divine sacrifices.

The cost of making invoking devotio is modified by the  Invoke Devotio Cost modifier, which is given only by the  Devout trait (-10%) and the stacking costs of invoking devotio itself.
