Rise to Power, formally Piety & Prestige/Sovereignty, or RtP, is a mod aimed at deepening the experience of managing your state-level and external affairs. It is composed of, at present, 4 distinct components, each focusing on a particular aspect of state management. For a general overview, please see here. For installation, see here.

This page collages this mod's changes.

Some of these changes may not be present with the Community Balance Patch.

Epithets

Epithets are random titles that can be awarded to players upon completing certain conditions, with the chances of acquiring an Epithet increasing as those conditions are met more commonly. When you are recognized with an Epithet, you may choose to accept it for a unique bonus or to decline it for a lump sum of Goldenage Golden Age Points.

This system replaces the titles awarded via Social Policies, and is intended to synthesize with Sovereignty's titles. It is intended to add more diversity and flavour to your in-game world.

Mercenaries

Mercenaries is a mod that introduces a system of recruitment for high-leveled and sometimes unique Mercenary units. Mercenaries are recruited by spending Gold (or Piety) on 'Contracts,' time-sensitive periods during which you gain control of a particular unit, for a particular maintenance cost. Mercenaries do not gain levels nor can they upgrade, but they are often more powerful than standard units (though expensive), and sometimes come en masse.

Choosing a State Religion.

State Religion

The core of the mod revolves around the introduction of a State Religion mechanic. You may establish a State Religion once you have researched the Priesthood technology. If you have founded a Religion, this automatically sets your State Religion to that religion.

You may change your State Religion at any time, so long as it is to a valid religion (it has been founded and you have met the founder). However, doing so will incur 0-2 turn(s) of Anarchy, depending on your Piety Level at the time.

Upon discovering Scientific Theory, you may 'Secularize' your state. This will effectively dismantle your State Religion and can be useful if you find it hard to keep your Piety level high. Secularizing also eliminates Crimes Crime from CrimesWhite Heresy.

Piety Levels

Your State Religion is maintained through a new yield called Piety Piety. Unlike most yields, piety depreciates over time, and it is your charge to ensure that it remains at a healthy rate. As your piety drops, so too will drop your 'Piety Level,' and with it will come new benefits or penalties. There are five levels of piety :

Level Effects
Devout
  • +25% natural Religion conversion rate for non-religious and pagan Citizens.
  • Increases rewards from religious events and decisions.
  • Increases the likelihood of positive religious events occurring.
  • Bonus relations with (certain)[9] civilizations that share your State Religion.
  • Missionaries have +100% Conversion Strength and may spread their religion an additional time.
  • 100% SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty from Faction Faction Support in a Theocracy (with Sovereignty)
Virtuous
  • +10% natural Religion conversion rate for non-religious and pagan Citizens.
  • Slightly increases rewards from religious events and decisions.
  • Slightly increases the likelihood of positive religious events occurring.
  • Missionaries have +50% Conversion Strength and may spread their religion an additional time.
  • 50% SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty from Faction Faction Support in a Theocracy (with Sovereignty)
Neutral
  • No Effect
Poor
  • -10% natural Religion conversion rate for non-religious and pagan Citizens.
  • Slightly decreases rewards from religious events and decisions.
  • Slightly increases the likelihood of negative religious events occurring.
  • Missionaries have -50% Conversion Strength.
  • Increases Crimes Crime from CrimesWhite Heresy by 50% (with CID).
  • 1 turn of Anarchy when changing State Religions.
  • 50% SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty from Faction Faction Opposition in a Theocracy (with Sovereignty)
Heretical
  • -25% natural Religion conversion rate for non-religious and pagan citizens.
  • Decreases rewards from religious events and decisions.
  • Increases the likelihood of negative religious events occurring.
  • Penalty to relations with (certain)* civilizations that share your State Religion.
  • Missionaries have -75% Conversion Strength and may spread their religion one less time.
  • Increases Crimes Crime from Heresy by CrimesWhite 100% (with CID').
  • 2 turns of Anarchy when changing State Religions.
  • 100% SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty from Faction Faction Opposition in a Theocracy (with Sovereignty)

Every turn, your piety will decrease by 1 whilst you are over a certain threshold. In addition, your Piety Piety:

  • Decreases by 1 for each city not following your State Religion
  • Decreases by 1 for each city not following your State Religion, of Civilizations that do (founders only)
  • Decreases by 1 for each Civilization following your State Religion with whom you are at war
  • Decreases by 2 once you have adopted an Ideology

For Religion Founders, Piety Piety may be spend to Influence Influence City-States following your State Religion. For all Civilizations, Piety Piety may be spend to purchase exclusive Mercenary Contracts (with Mercenaries).

Prosperity

Prosperity is a new yield used to represent the strength of your economy on the world stage. Unlike other yields (and akin to SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty below), it is not accumulated or spent.

Prosperity Levels

Your Prosperity is measured as a 'Prosperity Score' - a range from 0.0 to 1.0. This is divided into three 'Properity Levels,' each with their own, empire-wide effects.

Level Effects Threshold
Affluent
0.8-1.0
Balanced

Sovereignty

SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty is a new yield used to pass Reform Reforms. Unlike other yields, SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty is not spent - instead, it is a representation of how capable you are as a ruler, and you need only reach a certain amount in order to push through a particular Reform Reform (specific amounts depend on your Legislature and the Reform, see below).

Reforms

Reform Reforms are similar to Social Policies or Decisions, but often exchange a bonus for a penalty, and may be swapped around as you please and as the need arises (think Civ IV's Civics), provided you have the SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty required to do so. Reforms can be useful to push your civilization in a particular direction at the expense of something useless (such as Science), or to compensate for an area in which you are lacking.

Reforms are divided into eight Categories (Government, Legal, Culture, Economy, Industry, Religion, Military, and Foreign), and are further divided into 9 Branches each. Each Reform in a branch is exclusive to the others.

Each Reform has a Sovereignty cost, which is determined by two things: the Era in which the Reform becomes available, and the opinion of the Factions within your Legislature toward that Reform.

Governments

Your Government, in addition to being the prerequisite to passing Reform Reforms, will influence what Reforms you can pass, as well as what type of Legislature you possess (see below).

Legitimacies

Legitimacy Legitimacies are the claims you make to your authority as sovereign and are the primary source of your SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty. There are three sets of Legitimacies; you may only choose one of each:

Legislature

The Legislature is the most important aspect of your government. It is where Faction Factions assemble to challenge or to support the Reforms you want to pass. Each Faction possesses its own SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty - how much power they have to push their agenda. This Sovereignty is directly added to or subtracted from the Sovereignty cost of Reforms, depending upon the Faction's opinion of said Reform. So, a particularly powerful Faction will make it difficult to pass Reforms that they oppose and easy to pass Reforms that they support.

The Legislature is re-shuffled every 25 turns (on Standard) and sometimes in-between. How the Legislature is composed depends upon both your Government and your Legislature Reforms.

The Parliament

The Parliament is the Monarchic Legislature, and can be divided into two forms: Aristocratic and Parliamentary, with each having their own distinct factions. Aristocratic sovereignty is proportionally based upon the combination of two specific yields viz. your empire's total yield output. Parliamentary sovereignty, on the other hand,is based upon the proportion of Vote Votes a Faction Faction receives from each city, determined by two factors: the combination of two specific Specialists and the lowest of a combination of two specific yields.

Finally, there are several Factions that are considered extremist (Revolutionaries, Reactionaries, Communists, Fascists, and Libertarians) - these Factions will generally impose harsher penalties for implementing Reforms that they dislike, and may even force you to change your Reforms or Government! How they emerge depends upon your Political Parties Reform, but each (except Revolutionaries and Reactionaries) correspond to a specific Ideology.

Although Communists, Fascists, and Libertarians work as more particular versions of their non-extremist selves, Revolutionaries and Reactionaries function differently. If either of these groups are in your Parliament, there will be a chance for Resistance Anarchy each time you change Reforms. This chance is based upon their SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty.

The Senate

The Senate is the Republican Legislature, and is generally the same across Legislative Reforms, which merely determine how many Senator Senators compose it. Unlike in the Parliament, however, Faction Factions are not proportional, and the number of Senators per Faction, each constituting 1% SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty, is conditioned independently of other Senatorial Factions. The total influence of your Senate can often exceed or fall short of 100%.

Extremist Factions (Communists, Fascists, and Libertarians) will dictate a chance for Resistance Anarchy based upon their SovereigntyIcon Sovereignty, but only when you implement a reform that they oppose.

The Holy Synod

The Imperial Diet

The Imperial Diet is the Holy Roman Empire Legislature. Unlike in other Legislatures, Faction Factions are called Elector Prince-Electors, and Prince-Electors are derived from the top 7 of your befriended and Allied City-States. Prince-Electors will usually affect your Reform Reform costs unilaterally, based on whether you have more cities than Electors - if you have more cities than Electors, your Electors will oppose your Reforms, but otherwise they will support them. The exception to this is if you are at war with a particular Elector - that Elector will oppose your Reforms regardless until you strike peace.
