reminded of Here I Stand, the only board game that simulates the Protestant Reformation from 1517 to 1555 in enough detail to require a Henry's Wives' Pregnancy Chart and Excommunication Cubes
@kat I do think it'd honestly be fun to roleplay being Martin Luther or whatever and a laugh about how I'm getting a Book Of Common Prayer combo or talking about wife die roll modifiers
@BestGirlGrace This is why I love board games tbh
Absolutely wack shit like this
This should absolutely not work at all but I bet you it's fun as hell
@witchfynder_finder Oh, absolutely.
I think it'd be a lot of fun to be the protestants and invite France into the other room to hatch a scheme, y'know?
@BestGirlGrace this feels like someone played Europa Universalis and was like "yknow, this isn't boring enough"
@BestGirlGrace he created calvinism, and was one of the heads of the protestant reformation.
i think he hates catholicism.
@BestGirlGrace Alas, this era occurred a bit after the 'era of antipopes' otherwise I'd be requesting what the meta is for antipopes in this game.
@lyskar it'd be really funny if you could recreate the time like three guys declared themselves pope and all tried to excommunicate each other
@BestGirlGrace Yeah, you also would have the possibility for the antipopes to nominate antikings, which would make things even more bizarrely complicated.
@BestGirlGrace that list has always confused me. I thought celibacy was a requirement for the Catholic priesthood; when did that start?
Note: the ancient Jewish priesthood was always hereditary
@mpjgregoire @WizardOfDocs Fortunately, the list is nicely broken up into "Popes who were married and had kids", "Popes who had children before they became priests", "Popes who had children after becoming priests", and "Popes who had sex while being pope", and they seem to sit on both sides of the 1139 "You have to be celibate now" date.
Don't let the name fool you. All the pornography here is legal, and much of it is hand-written. No fascists, no bigots.
