Interaction between statesEdit
Certain diplomatic actions receive bonuses if the states follow the same religion, or penalties if they don't.
Interaction between state and charactersEdit
Characters not following state religion have their maximum loyalty lowered by -10. They are also less likely to be elected for office in a Republic.
Characters can be forcefully converted at a base cost of 25 Religious Power and a loss of 40 Loyalty. They may also convert on their own if they seek to gain popularity or government offices.
Certain events may result in religion change. Ptolemaic Egypt has the option to embrace Kemeticism, while in India characters tend to convert to Buddhism.
Interaction between state and populaceEdit
The Happiness of pops not following state religion is penalized by -5%, and a further -10% if the governor of their region is not of their religion. The percentage of pops following state religion is the nation's Religious Unity value, which is a major contributor to Omen Power.
A pop's religion can be changed to the state religion via conversion. Converting individual pops can be performed in the city menu and the macro-builder. Alternatively, the Religious Conversion governor policy provides a monthly chance of converting a pop in the affected province. Governors always convert pops to the state religion, regardless of the governor's personal religion.
An Omen can be invoked at no cost and lasts a base duration of 5 years. Only one Omen can be active at a time and it cannot be changed until it expires. Unlike in Europa Universalis: Rome, an Omen can never directly fail - giving you a negative effect.
The names and descriptions of the Omens depend on your religion and culture. A Greek country following the Hellenic faith will for instance seek the Blessings of Ares, Athena, or Tyche. While a Roman one will instead turn to Mars, Minerva or Fortuna. This is also reflected in events and text that reference the gods (and of course in the variety of events available).
