** The player can also change the names of provinces and settlements within them, and with the Customization DLC, they can change the names of titles they either possess or rule over, so long as they aren't a vassal to someone else.

* PleaseSelectNewCityName: Names of some places change depending on the culture of the owner of the province: for example, Novgorod the Great becomes Holmgard if conquered by the Norse.

Added DiffLines:

* AsianBabymama: It is possible to seduce characters with cultures and even religions different from your own[[Note]]If a character is of another religion group you can only seduce them if they are in your court[[/Note]], but the resulting illegitimate children will have the culture and religion of their mother. This can make it problematic to legitimize them, because French Catholic vassals will resent being ruled by a Berber Sunni bastard.


Added DiffLines:

* ForeignCultureFetish: Countries within diplomatic range of China can indulge in quite a bit of Sinophilia. They can use grace[[Note]]which represents good relations with the Chinese Imperial Dynasty[[/Note]] to hire Chinese Advisors, request Chinese Artifacts, and even marry the Chinese Emperor's daughter. It's possible to gain grace by sending the Emperor artifacts, castrating your courtiers and shipping them off to be the Emperor's courtiers, giving your female relatives to the Emperor's harem, and even [[PoseOfSupplication traveling thousands of miles to kowtow to the Emperor]]. This is justified in that China in this time is a superpower and gaining their favor has a lot of benefits.


Added DiffLines:

* PoseOfSupplication: One of the ways to gain grace with the Chinese Emperor is to travel to the capitol and kowtow to him. If you annoy him then he won't let you kowtow in person and instead demands you kowtow in front of a painting of him.

* ReadingsAreOffTheScale: The Emperor of China has no visible traits, and all of his stats are shown as "[[MyNameIsQuestionMarks ?]]". This makes him as close to a HumanoidAbomination as possible in-game, since everyone else, up to and including Saint Peter and the Prophet Muhammad, is represented with stats and traits.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: With "Jade Dragon", you can send your courtiers (including your relatives) to serve in China as commanders and eunuchs in order to get grace from the Chinese Emperor. Since trip to China is a long way to go, you can be sure that they never come back. In terms of game mechanics, being sent to China isn't different from being dead.

Since the trip to China is a ''very'' long way to go, and difficult, you can be sure that they they'll never come back. In terms of game mechanics, being sent to China isn't different from being dead.

* BonusBoss: Invading China. There are steep requirements to fulfill before it is even possible [[note]]You must be an Empire-tier ruler,
you must have 300 counties in your realm, you must border the eastern edge of the map, and China must not be destabalized[[/note]], the war itself is difficult (China sends larger doomstacks than even the Aztecs while all your counties have -75% replenishment), and losing the war means your primary title is destroyed. Essentially the only players who can attempt this are ones who have already conquered most of the world.

** Actually, there are two holy relics with effects that are definitely [[DoingInTheScientist magical]]: the first is the Seal of Solomon, which renders you immune to possession, and the second is the Holy Grail[[note]]The holy_grail, not the holy_chalice. The game has two, the chalice is less impressive[[/note]], which gives a +4 to health, which is a massive bonus, while all other holy artifacts that give bonuses to health give +1 at most, with many only giving 0.25-0.75, meaning it is most definitely not psychological.[[labelnote:Further Examples]]A +4 is enough to cancel out almost any disease, with the only diseases that have a higher health reduction being ''the bubonic plague'' and ''rabies'' (both at -7). The Holy Grail can allow you to easily shrug off ''cancer''(-3 health)[[/labelnote]]. There's also [[AngelsDevilsAndSquid Cthulhu]].

* TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified: If a peasant rebellion somehow succeeds, the leader of the rebellion gains the title "the liberator".

* ChinaTakesOverTheWorld: Downplayed. While China will sometimes become expansionist and force other Empires to be tributes, and while it can produce armies far in excess of what most other Empires can field, only realms on the eastern part of the map need worry about this.

Added DiffLines:

* NothingIsScarier: The Chinese Emperor is the only character in the game to have no traits, no stats, and no character ID. And he's in charge of an empire that can send out doomstacks at will.


Added DiffLines:

* [[UngovernableGalaxy Ungovernable Planet]]: While difficult, you can conquer and rule every county on the map. However, even if you successfully invade China you can not rule that area as well. Instead one of your family members is installed as Emperor of China and rules it as a separate Empire.

** With ''Jade Dragon'', the absence of Confucianism/Neo-Confucianism is somewhat noticeable, especially as the entire system of Chinese Meritocracy (which ''is'' present in-game) is based on its precepts. All Chinese characters are instead Taoist. This is most likely because creating ''two'' new religions entirely for the purpose of an off-screen faction (neither really caught on outside China) would be excessive.
