Sainthood


Recommended Posts

In Medieval 2 TW you upgraded your priest to become a bishop who could then "rank up" based on his ability to convert other religions, convict heretics etc.  It would be fantastic if you had a high-ranking bishop or monk that could later be declared a saint, and if he/she declared one, the providence they were from would gain a boost in piety or something like that.

I thought in the Catholic Church you had to be dead to move up the Sainthood ladder.  One of the criteria was to have miracles done in your name.

Yeah, that is what I am saying. So they would be sainted after the death of your agent so the boost would come later.

I don't think the developers would want to invest the programming time into a boost of piety, which has to be coded to end at a certain point.

How about your cleric dies, is named a Saint, and you get a one-off bonus of piety?  Easier to programme, and a nice flavour-thing.

I could go for that as part of a larger DLC.

Sounds good 2 me. I was just thinking of some way it could be included to add to the immersion of the game.
