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.

lots of random events that give negative traits fire based on the presence of positive traits. I can't recall exactly which ones, but stuff like Stressed can come from Diligent, Wroth from Brave, etc.

Also, if you have more than 5 personality traits, it's only a matter of time until you lose one - and it's probably a good one.

That's all in ironmode, too, so absolutely not cheating (unlike my non-ironman games, where I often cheat a lot). His grandfather attempted to achieve immortality as well but failed.

I plan to eventually switch over to Chinese Imperial Bureaucracy because it's fitting he be recognised as the divinity he is. I converted from Buddhism to Zoroastrianism for the same reason, the whole divine bloodlines shebang. Currently breeding the Muhammed Descent trait into my dynasty, I will leave these holders as my Stewards of the Arabian lands. It's a shame it's not the next DLC already so I could do the same in Europe.

Because yeah. What started as just another attempt to get the Aladin achievement just turn into a world conquest game. All of mankind must he brought into the fold of the Divine Emperor of Mankind!

Immortality is a mixed bag because the characters stop developing after a while and it's a static character that you can do nearly nothing with.

Great for having a stable kingdom though

Stable my ass. Even leaving immortality events aside, your immortal cgaracters can still go into religious frenzies, insane, et al.  Plus your family starts jockeing for power. And thats leaving aside any crazy sheanigans you might plan.

One big advantage you have is that you tend to get to the top of whichever society you belong to and stay there
 My most successful immortal has been grandmaster of the assasins for 2 centuries. He didnt even do that many reasons, it's just that seniority gives you a lot of cred :p
