- Cultural Divergence: split from your traditional culture, adapting it into something new that better fits your aspirations.
In our preview article Crusader Kings 3: Royal Court will bring grandeur and culture to your seat of power, Stefan wrote: “New roles and positions will be coming to the court, from selecting someone to be a Royal Champion or Court Tutor, to having a Food Taster make sure you aren’t poisoned (certainly someone to keep happy) and a Court Jester. The Tutor plays into the new ability to learn languages, a new scheme to pull of that, if you’re successful, can halve the foreigner penalty for occupying foreign lands. Of course, you can imagine the kinds of language-learning pranks that can crop up, not to mention the shenanigans that your Jester could pull, getting you into a spot of bother if they act up at a great feast you’re hosting… It’s an intriguing one with both the glitzy new royal court to amplify your role-playing elements of the game alongside the underlying cultural shift simulation.”
