Crusader Kings II: Monks and Mystics DLC announced!

By FallenXE - 15th December 2016 - 07:07 AM

Paradox has announced an additional DLC in the pipeline for Crusader Kings II, titled Monks and Mystics!

Though a large section of the community has been petitioning Paradox to include playable Theocracies and Religious Orders in Crusader Kings II, it seems Monks and Mystics shall be the developer's answer to their calls without directly including said playable features.

It is yet to be noted whether such cults and groups included with the DLC will have any on-map manifestations or feudal property ownership. All in all though it will be a welcome addition to the game as it reaches the end of its support cycle, with many features placed in without significantly altering or disrupting the gameplay.

As taken from the game's website:

The major feature of Monks and Mystics is the addition of Societies – secret and otherwise. Characters can join monastic orders, secret cults and Gnostic heresies. As the society gains members, it gains power and prestige for its leaders. Societies open new actions for characters and can lead to new event paths.

Monks and Mystics includes:
  • Monastic Orders: With lay offices available to non-clerical characters, monastic orders will increase your character’s piety - but they have expectations.
  • Cults: Gnostic heresies may flourish and its is rumored that the worship of Satan continues in the darkened fringes of the world
  • Climb the Ranks: Characters work their way up the ladder of Societies, unlocking new abilities and triggering new event chains
  • Hunt for Heretics: Send your chaplain out to find secret societies that undermine the holy church and your realm. But what if the hunter is guilty himself?
  • Other New Councillor Actions: Your councillors have a fourth action that will make them more powerful and integral to sound rulership
  • And much more: Assassins, archaeological expeditions, holy relics, great treasures and more
