I found the best way to get a friendly pope is to ignore him and instead make my bishops like me.

Also it used to be possible to bribe him 20gold on the first day he donned his hat.  the disposition increase could cover the request for monies/divorce if you were a halfway decent person or he was greedy.

I had a close call with my imbecile son.

Of course he replaced the good daughter because of agnatic-cognatic. Grew up, and I tried to have him excommunicated. Pope refused in spite of loving me and hating him.

So I swapped to intrigue, and immediately pulled up dirt on him, presumably not actual dirt but he was so stupid that he appeared to be plotting against me. I imprisoned him and forced him to take the vows. Then imprisoned him again since I was allowed, then banished him to get 15 gold.

Guy still liked me. Then I died of food poisoning and slow fever combined with medical malpractice.

It's actually pretty normal for abused children to still love their parents.

Glitterhoof has zeros but she still manages to be liked enough to seduce.  Is your own son not good enough for you?

One of my best rulers was a Taoist Han imbecile ruling within the Caliphate who lived to the age of 91, going from being a count to the King of the Esfa Han dynasty. I honestly believe the game biases geniuses to early graves and imbeciles to long lives; the ability for imbeciles to surprise everyone by living so long allows them to accrue personal power, while their incompetence can be balanced with talented & loyal councillors/wives

Also, how the hell did I end up in this thread? I don't even play Crusader Kings.

That you know of! Maybe that’s why he’s an imbecile.

The game seems to favor adversity and risk.  It seems to give bad things to 'good/strong' characters and good ones to those bad ones.

Some of my best characters were drunk stressed out cowards who hadn't the statlines to justify their inexplicable success.  Poor characters kind of succeed by degrees instead of in leaps.

I also want to say the game rewards picking traits/event options that fit the archetype and current traits of a character, even if negative, but that might be superstition.



P:

Oh Gods, Theyre giving Pope Popeus his own de-jure Kingdom to lust after.  Suppose it was inevitable.
