It’s been a while since we’ve checked in on the Crusader Kings 3 modding community, but we’re back with a fresh-faced new release. This time around, one of our favorite mods out there is Crusader Kings 3: Sees Your Ruler , a mod that adds a new challenge to your Crusader Kings 3 experience.
After years of playing Crusader Kings 2, I’m happy to say I’ve finally finished the game. It was an incredibly rewarding experience, one that I think most strategy gamers can relate to. It’s a game in which you make decisions with an eye towards the long term—even your most seemingly insignificant decisions can have immense consequences years later.
So, like many of you, I was drawn in by the extraordinary hype and fanfare that surrounded the digital debut of Crusader Kings 3 ( CK3 ) when it was released last year. The game’s broad appeal and deep gameplay is what drew me in. I loved the relationship and politics that the game emphasized and the way it encouraged me to constantly set goals for myself and constantly develop my character. But constantly developing my character is, of course, really important in CK3 .
The ability to conduct court and listen to your people’ petitions is one of the most noteworthy features of Royal Court, Crusader Kings 3’s first major addition. As disclosed by Paradox today, this activity allows you to take a break from the sometimes lonely job of deciding out who to invade next while also possibly providing amusement.
In Crusader Kings 3: Royal Court, holding court is a recurring activity that “allows you to hear a variety of petitions from different characters, listen to petitioners requesting your assistance, and provide legal rulings on a variety of topics.” It’s also a good method to see how noble (or crazy) your realm’s citizens are.
“At the moment, you’ll get three such petitions each time,” dev diary 72 adds, “with all events presented in the new courtly event format (though follow-up may be character events or equivalent).”
The incidents, based on the work-in-progress images provided thus far, range from dead serious to utterly absurd. As a ruler, you’ll be able to determine the destiny of a child who has lost his father – whether to take him in, find him a new home, or leave him to his fate – as well as resolve conflicts between subjects fighting over a piece of land, either via your own judgment or by having them duel for it.
Religious leaders may appear at your court with precious texts that you may touch and study more carefully, or they may urge you to support their completely non-shady cults. At the same time, you’ll have to determine whether or not to enforce a clothing code for petitioners, or whether or not the peasant who is wasting your time with their useless stories should be your new jester.
These occurrences may have a variety of consequences, like freaking out your ruler and even causing vassals you oppose despise you, but they can also award you Grandeur.
“We’ve put a lot of effort into making this system as varied as possible for as long as possible, as it models a task that would’ve been a pretty big part of many rulers’ day-to-day, and we’ve put a lot of effort into getting plenty of alternate events to keep it as varied as possible for as long as possible. We hope you find it a pleasant and proactive approach to look at some of the minor (and not so little) problems that are arising in your domain.”
Holding court seems to combine a functional side that gives your realm boons with a good amount of flavor that helps build your ruler’s narrative as they interact with their people, based on what has been revealed thus far.
When Crusader Kings 3: Royal Court releases later this year with Patch 1.5, which includes a coat of arms designer among other things, we’ll know for sure.
