宣战理由

来自王国风云2百科
跳转至: 导航搜索

Alert casus belli.png Casus belli, 简称 CB, 一个表示“战争借口”的拉丁词语。它代表了其他统治者和宗教领袖认为战争是合法的。

就像在其它P社游戏中的一样,在王国风云2中你需要一个宣战理由来开启战争CB会决定这场战争的胜利品和战败的惩罚是什么,并且经常会决定谁可以加入这场战争以及你需要怎样来获得战争胜利。

CB系统的原理是:信仰某一个宗教的统治者基于道德上的准则不应该无缘无故地互相开战,否则该名统治者会被视为一名非正义的暴君。而信仰某些原始宗教的领主则不受这一限制,他们可以向任何目标发动战争——如果他们把战火推进的太过分,就会有被其它宗教圣战的危险。

目录

宣战理由和扩张

战争是一种扩张你的领地的主要方式,因为大多数CB可以给你带来新的领土:

  • 使用一个个人的宣称篡夺头衔。
    • 使用其他人的宣称,并使其成为你的附庸(如果其头衔等级更低),或者:宣称这是你法理上的附庸,或是你的家族成员,或已经是你的有地封臣。
  • 对伯爵领的法理战争,以及征服类的战争,将会“强迫附庸或是篡夺”目标头衔。战胜之后,首先将会尝试将该头衔现有的统治者变为进攻方的封臣,但是如果由于进攻方头衔等级过低(如伯爵级)或者防御方拥有其他地产从而无法附庸的话,那么进攻方将会篡夺该头衔。
  • 入侵类型的战争“篡夺占领的领土”除了战争目标领地之外,所有被攻占的地产头衔均会一并被篡夺。
  • 圣战会篡夺所有异教徒的地产。

对于一个目标可以有多个CB,每个CB都有自己的目标和对成功的奖励。你通常应该选择回报最大的CB,但是你仍然应该尽可能避免圣战,以减少潜在的敌人数量(由于圣战时防御方同宗教统治着可能会加入防御方),即使有时候会带来很高的回报。

宣称战争

主条目:宣称

可能的结果有:

  • 一旦赢得一场宣称战争,你将获得目标头衔并获得100威望
  • 如果以无条件和平结束,你将失去100威望。
  • 如果以失败而告终,该宣称将会失去并且同时失去200威望。

对同一个头衔的多长宣称战争会导致所有进攻方互相敌对,如果目标头衔易主(不论是由于另一场宣称战争或是其他原因),宣称战争将会同新的控制者继续进行。

CB claim.png 宣称

如果你对某个领地拥有个人宣称,你可以公开这个宣称来篡夺该头衔。

CB claim all.png 索取所有宣称

拥有多个个人宣称(对同一个领域)的统治者可以同时公开它们,这使得攻击者可以在一场战争中获得所有宣称的头衔,而无需等待10年的停战协定(如果分别宣称的话)。

CB claim for other.png 为他人宣称

你也可以替任何你的廷臣或封臣公开他们的宣称。但如果目标头衔是男性继承,你将不能公开女性廷臣或封臣的宣称。

一旦获胜,你所帮助索取宣称的人将获取目标头衔,同时对你好感度将增加100。如果其索取的是公爵以上头衔并且原本没有土地,那么同时将会自动从目标头衔领地撺掇一个省份,并且对你的好感度进一步提升100。

要注意的是,如果你为一个既不是封臣也不是家族成员的的角色公开你的法理领地之外的宣称,他们将不会成为你的封臣。因此,如果你想要通过索取他人宣称来扩张自己领地,可以通过格拉摩根大法——即首先封给其一块封地,使之成为你的封臣,之后再索取他的宣称。不过,如果所索取的是不低于你的头衔等级的宣称,他们依然会独立。

法理战争

当你是一个头衔的法理领主但实际控制者不是你时,你可以选择“法理宣称”为战争理由宣战来夺取法理领地。不同于个人远程战争,法理宣称除非在你失去的法理的更高级头衔,否则永不失效。

Dlc icon sons of abraham.png 亚伯拉罕之裔 DLC激活时法理战争借口不能对同一宗教的骑士团使用,除非他们已经被驱逐

CB de jure claim.png 伯爵领法理宣称

如果你拥有公国、王国或帝国头衔或者你的封臣拥有公国头衔,你可以对头衔内法理领地内不由你控制的地产的最高君主提出收回法理领地的要求。但是这种借口即使其他势力拥有多个你的法理内省份,你也只能一次提出一个法律省份领土要求。同时这也意味着,作为一个皇帝,如果你的国王封臣不在你的帝国法理内,你就不能帮助其主张法理领土。

如果目标省份的所有者是单省份伯爵,宣称成功后其将会成为封臣。但如果其拥有多于一个省份,或是拥有任何更高的头衔,或是一个贵人,那么目标省份将被篡夺(连同该角色拥有的任何其他该省份地产)。

AI统治者不会对其领主手下的只剩一个省份的其他封臣使用这个宣战理由。因此公爵封臣通常不会“窃取”国王手下的其他直属封臣领地,而是会留给国王决定是否转封这个封臣。

如果战争以胜利告终,你将同时获得100威望,并且如果你是为其他人公开法理宣称,他们将会在20年内增加50点对你的好感。如果战争以无条件和平结束,你将失去100点威望,防御方会获得50威望,并且另外50点威望将会在防御方及其盟友间平分。如果战争失败,你将失去双倍的威望,同时你还需要支付相当于你4年的收入给战争的防御方。

CB de jure claim.png 附属地产法理宣称

有时,你或你的封臣的省份中可能会有不受你控制的归属于其他势力或是独立的次级地产(城堡、城市或神殿)。在这种情况下,你将可以公开一个省份中所有被该防御方占有的次级地产宣称。但在这种战争中,威望的失去或获取将为宣称完整省份的一半,如果为无条件和平则威望损失仅仅只是正常宣称战争的四分之一。同时,所宣称的地产将会被直接撺掇而不是被附庸。

这里有几种找出不属于你的次级地产的方式:

  • 不再打星际
  • 放大并寻找额外的地产纹章
  • 点击一个省份并检查是否每个地产右上角的纹章是你的
  • 使用“独立国家”列表(统计表的第十页),并按领地大小排序
  • 使用“外交关系”地图模式e)并寻找与众不同的浅色或暗色省份

碧玉之龙宣战理由

这些宣战理由需要Jade Dragon.png碧玉之龙 DLC,并且可以在游戏规则中禁用。通常来说,这些宣战理由代价高昂但同样拥有强力的效果。

法理公国宣称

为争夺一个公爵头衔下的所有省份而战。你必须个人持有该公爵头衔或该公爵领的法理国王或皇帝头衔。为了宣战,你需要花费基于头衔等级的威望(公爵级250,国王级500,皇帝级1000)。

只适用于在同一宗教组中,穆斯林不能使用这个宣战理由对抗其他教派的穆斯林。

强迫臣服

使一个低等级的领主成为你的封臣。 你必须是独立的,并且不能是游牧制政体。你必须拥有对敌方领土的宣称,或者足够的威望:

  • 使伯爵臣服需要250威望
  • 使公爵臣服需要1000威望
  • 使国王臣服需要2500威望

目标领主必须是独立的,领地大小小于31并与你接壤,与你同宗教或者同一文化组。无论信仰如何,都不能对圣职和宗教领袖使用。在十字军期间,这个宣战理由不可使用。

伟大征服

一个强大的领主可以挑战另一个强大的领主来获取一个法理王国,双方都必须是独立的,领地规模大于200,不是游牧政体,头衔为国王及以上。目标王国必须与进攻方接壤,或者通过不大于两个海区相邻。

进攻方需要花费3000威望、1500虔诚来发动战争。此外,还需要防守方兵力至少是进攻方的95%以上(不包括盟友的部队)。

成功后,该王国头衔及其所有法理领地都会被权夺,失败的惩罚比绝大部分的宣战理由都大。

公国征服

当目标公爵领头衔不存在的时候,这个宣战理由允许你征服你领地所在的公爵法理领地内的其他伯爵领。

战争胜利后,如果可以的话将附庸目标领主,否则将篡夺目标头衔。

你必须花费一年的收入来发起战争。此外,基于你的头衔等级,还需花费虔诚,伯爵需要100虔诚,公爵需要250虔诚。

高等级的领主不能使用这个宣战理由。

穆斯林、原始宗教和游牧民族不可以使用这个宣战理由,因为他们已经有其他的扩张方式。

宗教解放

解放一个王国,该王国内必须有一个伯爵领的宗教与你相同。战争胜利后,该王国将迎来一个与你同宗教的领主,同时成为你的朝贡国

角色在一些特殊的情况下可以获得此宣战理由。例如,当你第一次选择强化信仰的野心,特别是拥有神学生活重心,可获得此宣战理由。该宣战理由也会随机触发,即使你没有强化信仰的野心。

即使你没有启用Jade Dragon.png碧玉之龙,当你启用Holy Fury.png神圣之怒,并拥有「能发起宗教解放战争」特质的血脉时,你可以无限次的发动宗教解放战争。

边界争端

你可以选择去入侵任何与你接壤的伯爵领。但是要注意在没有宣称的情况下发动侵略将要付出沉重的代价。

原始宗教使用这个宣战理由需要花费100威望。其他宗教需要还花费钱与虔诚,花费随着你的头衔等级变高及你们的宗教差异变小而变大。

发起这种战争还会得到敌方宗教组对你的好感修正:发动非正义战争 -15

和平主义宗教不可以使用这个宣战理由。游牧政体及伊斯兰教不可以使用这个宣战理由,因为他们已经有其他扩张方式了。原始宗教只能对同一宗教领主使用。

这个宣战理由可以在开局规则中关闭。

封臣专用

CB independence.png 独立

当你是某人的封臣的时候,你可以通过这种战争来实现独立。

  • 如果你赢得战争,你将从你当前领主那里独立,并且如果你对抗的领主是国王或皇帝,那么他的王权法将会降低一级。
  • 如果你们达成无条件和平,你将失去100威望。
  • 如果你失败,你将被囚禁并失去200威望。

跟修改法律一样,你不能通过使用这个宣战理由来从附庸链中直接独立。如果你的领主是另一个更高等级领主的附庸(例如你是伯爵,你的领主是一个国王麾下的公爵级封臣,),那么当战争胜利后,你将成为你前领主的领主的直属封臣而不是直接独立。

与通过派系发起独立战争不同,直接发起独立战争将允许你召唤盟友(同时,防御方也可以召唤盟友)。但是,如果通过派系独立,在派系战争期间,你的派系里的同谋在战争期间将暂时成为你的封臣,以使战争更加协调和真实,同时,你还可以向你的临时封臣收税及要求他们提供征召兵。封臣的封臣不可以发起独立派系,但是可以直接发起独立战争(以便直接效忠一个更高级的领主)。

CB independence.png 推翻领主

Triggered by failed arrest or refused title revocation.

Upon victory, the liege will be forced to abdicate. Without the DLC icon Conclave.pngConclave DLC, crown authority is lowered two steps.

For justified arrest:

  • War name is "Revolt against the rule of <ruler>"
  • The rebelling vassal does not get a temporary title and must fight alone

For unjustified arrest or any revocation:

  • War name is "War against the tyranny of <ruler>"
  • The rebelling vassal gets a temporary title and other vassals may join in the rebellion (assuming the ruler is duke+ tier)
  • With Conclave, also seeks to set title revocation law to "disallowed"

派系宣战理由

主条目:Factions

A vassal who feels their faction is powerful enough can issue an ultimatum. If their liege does not capitulate, a war begins with the faction leader as the attacker. Each faction goal has a corresponding CB.

The faction leader gains a temporary title of the defender's rank (thus temporarily becoming independent) with the fellow faction members as temporary vassals. They provide a minimum liege levy equal to their own army size.

宗教宣战理由

通用

CB holy war.png 圣战

If your religion views an independent ruler as "infidel" or "heretic", you can declare a religious war against that ruler for a duchy. Muslims can also attack non-heretic Muslims of a different denomination (e.g. Sunni vs Shi'a) who are not busy fighting infidels. Dharmans can also attack Taoists.

You must control a province bordering the targeted duchy (or inside it). It can also be used across 2 sea zones if the attacker or defender is Muslim, or if the attacker is Christian and Crusades have been unlocked.

This CB cannot be used within a realm, for instance by a Sunni vassal against a Shi'a vassal of the same liege, or by a heretic vassal against their non-heretic liege. Vassals who do not share their liege's religion are restricted from using the CB even for external wars, unless the vassal and liege are both non-heretics of the same religion group.

Upon victory, you'll gain 50 prestige and all holdings (as long as they're occupied by you or your allies, or unoccupied) in the targeted duchy. If someone of your own religion owns one of the holdings, they'll become your vassal. If you are Muslim and attacking a non-Muslim, all vassals will be preserved if possible. Higher or equal tiers rulers' holdings will be usurped as usual, but lower tier vassals will become yours instead. This CB cannot vassalize any religious head such as the Pope even you target the only duchy he has. Muslim victors will also lose decadence (based on war contribution; maximum 10%).

If you stalemate (white peace), you'll lose 50 piety and 100 prestige, and if you lose you'll lose 150 piety, 200 prestige, and be forced to pay concessions. The winner's religion gains 3% moral authority for 20 years and the loser's loses 3%. Muslim attackers gain decadence upon losing a holy war, unless they have a liege of the same dynasty.

This CB is available to rulers of most religions, but there are exceptions:

  • Unreformed Pagans do not have holy wars.
  • Reformed pagans have a more powerful version of this CB that can always be used across two sea zones, can be used against other pagans, can be used by nomads, and only incurs a 5-year truce. However, this modified CB costs 100 piety to use.
  • Jains do not have any type of religious war.
  • Buddhists must spend 250 piety to use this CB.
  • Taoists cannot use this CB.
  • Rulers cannot use this CB while participating in a reconquista war or while leading a reconquista campaign(?).

As with other religious wars, attackers should keep in mind that:

  • Rulers of the defender's faith may volunteer to join in defense. Attacking is safest when nearby rulers of the target's faith are engaged in other wars. AI rulers consider joining in defense if they are neighbors or their capital-to-capital distance is below 200.
  • Defenders may convert to their attacker's religion by decision. This invalidates the CB, ending the war inconclusively. AI rulers will consider doing so monthly once warscore reaches 50%, so try to reach 100% warscore quickly. They are more likely to convert when their own faith's moral authority is low.
  • Defenders with enough piety are likely to hire holy orders (especially Catholics who have more than 1 order). You can use Title Search to see whether the religion's holy orders exist and whether they are busy.

The Holy War CB can also be used against known demon worshippers of the same religious group, as long as the attacker is not also a known demon worshipper. Losing a Holy War against a satanist does not lower moral authority.

CB holy war.png 十字军

This is a special CB only available to religious heads with at least 5% moral authority. It targets all territories in a de jure kingdom held by heathens or heretics. Any ruler of the same religion can join, even vassals. Upon success, the land will be given out in one of three manners:

  • If the kingdom title is already held by a ruler of the same religion, that ruler gets the territory.
  • If the kingdom title is already held by a ruler who is not of the same religion (for example, a Sunni Jihad for the Kingdom of Anatolia which is held by the Orthodox Byzantine Emperor in Constantinople), the land is given to a same-religion claimant on the title (strong claims get priority over weak ones). If no same-religion claimant exists, the land is given to the war participant with the highest war contribution score. The title can be peacefully usurped afterwards by the de facto controller.
  • If the kingdom title does not exist, it is created and both kingdom and land are given to the participant with the highest war contribution score.

In addition, the Moral Authority of the attacker's religion increases by 20% for 20 years, and 500 piety and 1000 prestige are divided among all participants by their percentage contribution, while the loser loses 100 piety and his religion 20% moral authority. As with holy wars, defending pagans and Zoroastrians can convert to the attacker's religion by decision, ending the crusade inconclusively.

On a white peace, the attacker loses 5% authority and 100 piety while the defender gets 2.5% authority, 200 prestige and 100 piety. On a loss, the attacker loses 10% authority, 200 piety, the principal defender gets 10% authority and 100 piety, and a further 300 prestige and 150 piety is divided up among all defenders.

Catholic crusades and Muslim jihads become available in the 11th-12th centuries, or earlier if certain holy sites fall to infidels. Reformed Pagans get Great Holy Wars once either crusades or jihads have been unlocked. Jewish and Zoroastrian Great Holy Wars are unlocked as soon as the head of the respective religion is reinstated. Fraticelli Crusades and Ibadi, Yazidi, Hurufi, and Kharijite Jihads are unlocked once their religious heads are formed, and when the Crusades or Jihads are respectively unlocked. The Eastern religions and Eastern Christians (Orthodox, Miaphysite and Nestorian) are the only religions without a Great Holy War of any kind.

If the principal defender dies or is overthrown the war ends inconclusively.

CB invasion.png 准许入侵

Christian, Jewish, and Zoroastrian rulers can ask their religious head to condone an invasion on another realm targeting a de jure kingdom that follows the same religion and head. You must have a claim on the target's primary title or a smaller realm than the target. It costs 500 piety (250 with Papal Investiture) and will only be granted if the religious head likes you much more than the target.

Upon victory, you'll get the kingdom title in question, 400 prestige, and every occupied holding as well as all holdings in counties where you occupy the capital, and also earn the nickname of "The Conqueror". As such, you should occupy every county before enforcing demands, as then you can install your own nobles. If you stalemate you'll lose 100 prestige. If you lose, you'll lose 200 prestige, and have to pay concessions, and you'll lose your claim on the kingdom.

This CB is most useful for Catholics. Most Orthodox kings have autocephalous patriarchs, while Jews and Zoroastrians must first restore their respective religious head.

If the target dies, the invasion claim disappears.

基督教

CB excommunicated.png 被绝罚的统治者

If someone has the same head of religion as you, and has been excommunicated, you can declare war upon them. Victory will give you 10 to 70 piety and 50 to 400 prestige depending on the excommunicated ruler's rank, and the target will have his excommunication lifted and be forced to abdicate. A white peace will lose you 50 piety and 100 prestige. Losing will lose you 100 piety, 200 prestige, and you'll be forced to pay concessions.

By default only Christians have excommunication, and only if their particular denomination currently possesses a religious head. However if the Yazidi Sheikhdom has been created, the Sheikh can excommunicate fellow Yazidis.

CB depose antipope.png 废黜对立教宗

Catholics who accept the authority of the 'true' Pope may attack rulers who have established an antipope. On success, the antipope is deposed (meaning he loses his claim on the papacy; he keeps his bishopric) and the winner gets 500 prestige, 250 piety and a massive opinion boost from the Pope. The loser takes a heavy prestige and piety hit. On failure, the attacker loses prestige and must pay heavy reparations.

CB excommunicated.png 扶植独立教宗

Vassals of a king or emperor who controls an antipope may start a faction to depose both and install a rival claimant. The faction members can call the real pope into the resulting war.

CB holy war.png 收复失地运动

Iberian Christian rulers may use the "Prepare Reconquest War" decision to unlock special CBs targeting pairs of duchies. Adventurers can also use these CBs.

The duchy pairs are visible in the Regions interface and listed below:

宣战理由 目标公国 获得所有目标公国后可获得王国
Reconquest of Leon León and Asturias Kingdom of León or Asturias (whichever is non-titular)
Reconquest of Castille Castille and Toledo Kingdom of Castille
Reconquest of Aragon Aragon and Barcelona Kingdom of Aragon
Reconquest of Galicia Galicia and Portucale Kingdom of Galicia (if not titular)
Reconquest of Western Coast Beja and Algarve none
Reconquest of Southern Iberia Granada and Seville none
Reconquest of Central Iberia Cordoba and Badajoz none
Reconquest of the Eastern Coast Valencia and Murcia none
Reconquest of Navarra Navarra Kingdom of Navarra
Reconquest of the Balearic Islands Mallorca none

On success, the attacker (or their chosen beneficiary) gains land held by the defender within the target duchies. The target duchies are created or taken (unless they are held by a non-target). If all named duchies are gained, the associated kingdom is gained as well.

Reconquista wars are mutually exclusive with each other and with Holy Wars.

CB holy war.png 北方十字军

The Teutonic Order may announce their intent to fight non-Christians in the North. The campaign will consist of a series of duchy-tier wars within a single de jure kingdom. This requires the Holy Fury DLC and can only happen after the year 1150.

An independent Catholic ruler may suggest a target. The suggester must be independent and hold a king+ title which is in {Northern Europe, Eastern Baltic, or Rus Region}. Otherwise, the Teutonic Order will pick a target themselves after 5-10 years. The first target must be a duke+ ruler; subsequent targets must own land within the kingdom chosen for the first war.

On success, the Teutonic Order takes the conquered land. They also upgrade their title to the kingdom-tier Teutonic State, if they haven't already done so. If two wars fail, the order will call off the campaign.

Allied attackers get 150 piety and additional rewards depending on war contribution: 150 more piety at 1%, gold at 20%, and an artifact at 40%. If a ruler is the most contributing ally in three wars, they found a Northern Crusade Bloodline, allowing them and their descendants to vassalize the Teutonic Order or Teutonic State.

教宗战争

A duchy-level war on behalf of the Pope. Requires Holy Fury DLC.

Used by independent kings and emperors to restore the Pope to Papal lands (duchy of Latium, Spoleto, Ancona, Ferrara, or Benevento). The target may be a valid holy war target (infidel or heretic), an excommunicated ruler, or a non-theocratic ruler of the same religion who is excommunicated or severely disliked by the Pope (-50).

The Pope may request such a war as a condition for coronation. It can also be a good way to increase Papal opinion or gain an artifact from the Pope as a gift.

Dlc icon sword of islam.png 伊斯兰教

CB invasion.png 入侵(伊斯兰教)

针对 1000 虔诚,穆斯林有机会征服一个同时控制 6 个国家的异教领主的邦国的法理领土 (这和穆斯林圣战一样,“异教” 也包括其他教派的穆斯林,例如逊尼派和什叶派)。得胜就会叙任领主, and also transfers vassalage of all subsidiary lords in the kingdom. The new vassals get a temporary +75 relations modifier with you, making it very easy to demand their conversion. Since patch 1.091, this CB is only usable on kingdoms that you border or own land in. According to CB files, nomads cannot use muslim invasion, they use nomad invasion instead.

Unlike other invasions, you only gain the target holdings; the loser gets to keep any holdings you occupy outside the wargoal.

As with holy wars, defending pagan and Zoroastrian rulers can convert to the attacker's religion by decision, ending the war inconclusively.

CB de jure claim.png 伯爵领征服(伊斯兰教)

Muslims may attack any county bordering their own lands. The CB costs 50 Piety to use, but is usable on any target except your liege. Victory gains you the county, or (if the county is ruled by a single-province count and you're duke rank or higher) transfers vassalage of the count to you, and gives 100 Prestige. White Peace costs 100 Prestige. Losing costs 100 Prestige and forces you to pay concessions. The truce lasts only 5 years.

CB subjugation.png 哈里发征服

Once every 10 years, Muslim caliphs may attempt to subjugate a Muslim de jure kingdom of the same denomination. On success, the target's vassals in that kingdom (or target) become the attacker's vassals. If someone holds territory outside the target kingdom, they cannot be vassalized; their titles within the target kingdom are usurped instead.

The truce lasts only 1 year. Despite this CB not usurping all occupied titles, the attacker will not accept early surrender. This may be a bug.

According to CB files, nomads cannot use Caliphal Subjugation; they use nomad invasion instead.

腐化夺权

Muslims can use this CB to usurp titles from kin with the Decadent.png trait.

Dlc icon the old gods.png 原始宗教宣战理由

Depending on the specific Pagan religion and whether or not you are reformed (and how you reformed, with the Holy Fury.png expansion), the availability of these various CB to individual rulers will vary.

CB de jure claim.png 伯爵领征服(原始宗教)

Similar to the Muslim CB, but only usable on targets of different religion and does not cost piety to use. All pagans may target neighboring counties, and Germanic pagans may also target any coastal county once the "Start of the Viking Age" event occurs in the year 800. On success, rewards 50 Piety and Prestige in addition to the county, and gives the religion 1% moral authority for 20 years. Like the Muslim CB, the truce lasts only 5 years.

Nomads have access to County Conquest regardless of their faith. However, non-pagan nomads can only use this CB on other nomads or tribals.

CB subjugation.png 部落入侵

This powerful CB targets a de jure kingdom but does not usurp the kingdom title. As it is an invasion, it also usurps all occupied holdings (and holdings in occupied counties), even outside the wargoal.

It is available for rulers who have tribal government or elective gavelkind succession, if they also have appropriate religion and culture:

  • Without the "Horse Lords" expansion: it can be used by Pagans with Invasion culture (Altaic or Magyar) and non-Christians with Horde culture (Mongol or Nahua). Pagans cannot be targeted except by Horde culture attackers.
  • With the "Horse Lords" expansion: it can only be used by Pagans; requires Altaic, Magyar, or Nahua culture; and can never be used against Pagans.

It is also available for:

  • Special hordes
  • Landless mercenaries who were not paid
  • Child of destiny
  • "Immortal Blood of Alexander" bloodline (once per lifetime, NOT refunded if the war becomes invalid)

Declaring a Tribal Invasion costs 500 prestige, but the attacker receives 400 prestige upon success (with 100% war contribution).

Nomads cannot use this CB. Instead, they can use Nomad invasion when their population is 75% of its maximum and at least 30000.

CB subjugation.png 原始宗教征服

Pagans (except Hellenics) with either a tribal government or elective gavelkind succession, may target all land in a de jure kingdom held by another pagan. On success, all holdings are vassalized or seized, and top-level non-titular titles are seized if they are of equal or higher rank than the invader's top title. The conqueror gets an opinion bonus from the vassals he subjugates. Reformed Pagans lose this CB, and are also protected from it, except from attacks from the unreformed version of their own religion. The truce lasts only 1 year.

A character may only use this CB once in their lifespan, except with the "Become King" ambition, which allows unlimited usage within the capital's de jure kingdom. If a character is already being targeted in a subjugation war it invalidates that character as a target for another subjugation war.

CB subjugation.png 准备入侵

Certain Pagan rulers can declare their intent to attack a realm, and recruit followers from all over Scandinavia during a special preparation phase.

Prepared Invasions are available for:

  • Unreformed Germanic Pagans, after the "Viking Age" event in the year 800
  • Reformed Germanic pagans (without Holy Fury)
  • Reformed pagans with the Daring doctrine (with HF)

The target realm must have between 9 and 50 holdings within the target de jure kingdom. The attacker must have 1000 prestige and fewer than 50 holdings. During the two years after the invasion is announced, the preparing ruler has a chance to receive free troops and ships. The recruited army scales with the size of the ruler's existing army, and also tends to be larger with:

  • 7, 10, 15, and 20 martial skill
  • 7, 10, 15, and 20 diplomacy skill
  • 100 and 1000 prestige
  • Higher rank than count

Recruits show up slowly if the target realm has twice as many troops as the attacker and very slowly if the target realm has three times as many troops. Recruits do not show up at all if the target has four times as many troops as the attacker.

Since the recruited army scales with the size of your existing army, you should increase your strength by all possible means during the period before the invasion. At the very least, your capital should have the "train troops" and "fleet returned with loot" bonuses to levy size. Consider raising tribal prestige troops, hiring mercenaries, or even leading a faction rebellion.

Most of these event troops are earmarked for the invasion and will disband if the invasion is cancelled or if the invasion war ends. However, some of the event troops (those that arrive with a hero commander) are not earmarked and can be retained. If the war becomes invalid due to the attacker no longer controlling any titles in the target kingdom, all event troops will be retained.

As with Holy Wars, neighbors of the target who share their religion can (and very likely will) join in defense. Not declaring war within two years cancels the invasion and has a heavy Prestige cost. On success in the war, occupied holdings and holdings in occupied counties are usurped, and any remaining titles in the named target kingdom are vassalized. Conquered holdings do not get the "recently conquered" penalty and have their levies refilled immediately. Only usable once per ruler's lifetime. The truce lasts only 1 year.

If you start as one of the British Sons of Ragnar in 867 (Halfdan Whiteshirt of Jorvik or Ivar the Boneless of Suðreyar), you will begin immediately following their declaration of a prepared invasion and this CB will not be available to your starting character afterward.

Prepared Invasion will be cancelled if:

  • You die
  • You have any troops in target realm before declaring war
  • You have raided target and target is still hostile towards you. After a raid hostile timer is 180 days.

荣冠战争

Used by Aztecs or any reformed pagan religion with the "Bloodthirsty Gods" doctrine. The attacker must have the 3rd tier trait, Haemoarch. Requires Holy Fury DLC.

On success, some non-ruler members of the ruler's court are sacrificed. Provinces of the defender's demesne, as well as those of their direct vassals, get a modifier for 10 years severely reducing levy size. The attacker's religion gets +3% moral authority for 30 years.

母系废黜战争

A reformed pagan whose religion has the combination of the "Warmongering" nature and the "Enatic Clans" doctrine may declare war to depose a neighboring male ruler.

On success, a woman from the defender's dynasty will be chosen to rule the title. Women are excluded if they are incapable or follow a religion with the opposing dogma "Agnatic Clans". If there are multiple candidates, it strongly prefers women of the attacker's religion and prefers close relatives of the defender. If there are no valid dynastic candidates, a vassal will be chosen, or a new female character will be generated.

The realm will also be forced onto enatic succession and full status of women (unless the new ruler's religion uses the semi-opposing equality dogma). Finally, the realm will become the attacker's tributary (if not already a tributary and with appropriate DLC) or non-aggression pact partner.

Although this CB does not always expand the territory of the attacker's religion, it counts as a holy war for moral authority and the "strengthen religion" ambition.

父系废黜战争

Opposite gender version of above, for pagan religions with combination of the "Warmongering" nature and the "Agnatic Clans" doctrine.

Rajas of India.png 印度宗教

CB subjugation.png 印度征服

Rulers of the Indian religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism) may subjugate de jure kingdoms held by other Indian rulers. Costs 500 piety, and is only usable on targets of the same culture group. The truce lasts only 1 year.

A character may only use this CB once every 100 years, except with the "Become King" ambition, which allows unlimited usage within the capital's de jure kingdom.

伯爵领征服(佛教)

Buddhists can attempt to vassalize a single county from another religion group or from Taoist. The targeted county must be bordering, or be within two sea zones. The truce only lasts 5 years.

While called a "minor holy war" in game, this is deceptive as it does not affect moral authority and does not allow the defender's coreligionists to join.

While smaller than the duchy-level holy war freely available to Hindus, this CB has advantages if the targeted county is held by a count who holds no other county titles. You can revoke the title from the holder (using religious control law) and have a county that is immediately productive, rather than having a severe conquest penalty to levies.

You can also use this CB to gain control of infidel claimants. A second war, using the claim-for-other CB, can then net you an entire kingdom. With Muslim neighbors, there is even the possibility of gaining control of the ruler's sons or grandsons, letting you game their open succession by granting a kingdom.

朝贡国

A tributary-suzerain relationship is an asymmetric pact giving the suzerain power over the tributary. There are four types of tributaries, each with different tax rates and rules about who must join whose wars.

A suzerain cannot declare war on their tributaries. However, a suzerain may choose to release a tributary in order to attack them again, as long as both realms are at peace. The truce from the initial "Make tributary" war only lasts a year, and releasing a tributary does not create a new truce. Tributaries cannot join in defensive pacts against their suzerain.

In a war to establish a tributary relationship, defenders often offer to surrender early. This can happen in two ways:

  • At the beginning of the war, as an option in an event. Proud.png, Stubborn.png, Lunatic.png, and Possessed.png rulers will never choose to surrender this way. Craven.png or Content.png rulers are more likely to choose surrender, while rulers with sufficient power to defend (including allies) are less likely to surrender.
  • At any time during the war, when evaluating warscore and defender_ai_defeat_worth. Distant targets, proud/Brave.png/Greedy.png characters, and kings are less inclined to fold.

逼迫纳贡

On success, the defender becomes a (normal) Tributary of the attacker at a tax rate of 40%. This type of tributary can be called to war and cannot unite with other tributaries, but always breaks free on suzerain death.

Requires the Horse Lords.pngHorse Lords DLC. Requires a border or being at most 2 sea zones away (similar to holy wars). The attacker must not be a tributary (except Jade Dragon.pngimperial) and must be independent. The defender must be an independent count or above, cannot be the representative of an off-map power, and cannot be already participating in another tributary war.

Nomadic and tribal rulers get special opinion bonuses with their vassals after winning this kind of war. Primarily used by nomads against the richer government types, but occasionally used by rulers of other government types when other CBs are unavailable. Since the tributary relationship ends upon suzerain death, re-using this CB is a great way to gain prestige upon succession.

建立朝贡关系

On success, the defender becomes a Nomad Tributary, a type of tributary that pays 50% tax and grants the suzerain +0.3 monthly prestige. This type of tributary can be called to war, and only breaks free on negative prestige.

Requires the Horse Lords.pngHorse Lords DLC. Has similar requirements as Extort tribute, with the additional requirements that the attacker must be nomadic and that this CB cannot be used to steal tributaries from your own vassals. Can be used against realms that border a tributary of the same type, even if they are not otherwise in range.

建立朝贡国

On success, the defender becomes a Tributary State, a type of tributary that pays 20% tax and transfers 15% reinforcement rate. This type of tributary cannot be called to war, but can call their suzerain to war. This type of tributary has many ways to break free: if the suzerain has negative prestige, ceases to be independent, has a smaller realm size, or declines a defensive call to arms from the tributary state.

Requires the Jade Dragon.pngJade Dragon DLC. Can only be used by non-nomadic rulers. The attacker must have 200 prestige and cannot have a smaller realm. Requires Majesty 4 in Europe (region) and Majesty 2 elsewhere. Can be used against realms that border a tributary of the same type, even if they are not otherwise in range.

The tributary will also break free if the current ruler is overthrown (e.g. from a decadence revolt). This will not happen with regular inheritance.

脱离朝贡

Tributaries can use this CB to attempt to free themselves from tributary status. Tributaries cannot declare any other type of war against their suzerain. As wars for independence, these wars have ticking warscore in favor of the attacker as long as the attacker controls all their holdings.

Permanent tributaries can unite in an attempt to free themselves, as in an independence faction war. Normal tributaries can only fight alone and risk other tributaries joining their suzerain.

In the rare case that a tributary becomes a vassal of another realm, their liege can also use this CB on behalf of their vassal.

Jade Dragon.png 中国

服从

Used by China or by a rebel Chinese general to invade another realm. Usurps counties up to the attacker's demesne limit and forcibly vassalizes the defender.

If the defender is not an emperor, they become a vassal and their kingdoms are usurped. If the defender is an emperor, their vassals become the attacker's vassals, the defender's empire titles are destroyed, and the defender becomes a vassal.

建立朝贡国(中国)

On success, the defender becomes an Imperial Tributary of China's Western Protectorate. This type of tributary pays 50% tax and transfers 30% of reinforcements. The tributary loses monthly prestige scaled by tier, but receives +2 monthly grace and can summon Chinese regiments. Imperial Tributaries can break away by decision if China is embroiled in civil war or experiencing an invasion.

消灭伪朝

Used by China to destroy a pretender China (a realm created by a rebel Chinese general using the Submission CB).

强迫中国开放

Used against the Western Protectorate to force China to end an Isolationist policy and resume trade through the silk road.

Since this is a war against China, warscore can be decided entirely by battles and cannot be decided entirely by occupying the Western Protectorate. White peace is impossible.

On success, get a lot of grace and wealth, and China is forced to change its policy to Open.

粉碎领土

Used by China when a player uses the "request invasion" boon. Sometimes used by China when a player attempts to intimidate China into opening the silk road.

入侵中国

可以用于将您的亲属推上天朝皇帝的宝座

特殊

CB imperial reconquest.png 帝国再征服

A super-powered CB available only to the restored Roman Empire. The attacker must be Christian or Hellenic, and the defender must not be Muslim. On success, subjugates all holdings in the target duchy like in Muslim invasions. May only be used within de jure kingdoms once part of the historical Roman Empire.

The territories that may be targeted with this CB do not necessarily correspond to the lands required to gain the Roman Province events, or land that is required to reclaim the old Imperial borders.

Ordered by 1066 de jure empire, the CB can be used within the borders of each of these de jure kingdoms:

  • Byzantine Empire - Kingdoms of Anatolia, Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Serbia, Trebizond, Thrace, Epirus, Cyprus, Amalfi (missing Georgia)
  • Empire of Arabia - Kingdoms of Africa, Egypt, Jerusalem, Mauretania, Syria (missing Arabia, Yemen)
  • Empire of Britannia - Kingdoms of England, Wales (missing Ireland, Scotland)
  • Empire of Francia - Kingdoms of Aquitaine, Brittany, Burgundy, France
  • Holy Roman Empire - Kingdoms of Bavaria, Frisia, Lotharingia, Carinthia (missing Germany, Bohemia)
  • Empire of Hispania - Kingdoms of Andalusia, Asturias, Aragon, Castille, Galicia, León, Navarra, Portugal, Badajoz, Valencia
  • Empire of Italia - Kingdoms of Italy, Sicily, Sardinia & Corsica, Venice, Pisa, Genoa, Romagna
  • No initial de jure empire:
    • The Papacy
    • The Papal State
    • Kingdom of Antioch
    • Kingdom of Switzerland

Each of the above kingdoms can be targeted, regardless of what de jure empire it is part of. Note that if the de jure territory of any of the above kingdoms change, then so do the duchies that can be targeted using the CB.

CB subjugation.png 昭昭天命入侵

This CB can only be used by Timurids and pre-1200 Seljuks. It targets a kingdom within the de jure empires of Persia, Byzantium, or Arabia. The target realm must control 3 provinces within the target kingdom.

仇敌

Humiliate and imprison a rival ruler. This targets the person rather than his or her title(s): on victory, the targeted rival is imprisoned by the victor, but no territory changes hands. While of little direct utility other than gains in prestige and wealth, this can have side benefits such as forcing a regency, allowing weak claims to be pressed against the rival's title(s). It is also extremely useful in a republic for boosting prestige, which factors prominently in succession—suppressing a rival house every time the truce expires can increase prestige enough to edge out the election against a non-rival house in an otherwise close campaign.

解救俘虏

玩家可以为处于强制性纳妾或逮捕中的无地角色使用该战争借口。被宣战者可以通过这种方式被迫释放攻击者的亲戚、朋友、配偶等。 不像其他战争, 这种战争借口也可以消除被拘禁角色的人质性质。

防御方可以选择立即释放, 处决一个或所有俘虏 (包括妾), 亦或者只简单的接受战争。请注意,即使俘虏被处决,也不会结束战争!

在胜利的情况下, 战败者将赔付相当于三年收入的战争赔款,并释放俘虏。强制性纳妾将终止并且婚姻破裂 (和角色在同领地)。囚犯也将被释放。被解救的角色将加入你的宫廷除非她们还是有地角色的妾或妻子。所有被解救者还将对他们的恩人有额外的好感加成。

政体宣战理由

Dlc icon the republic.png 商业共和制宣战理由

CB seize trade post.png 夺取贸易站

For patricians and merchant republics targeting each other. Cannot be used against patricians in the same realm if you have 2 or more trade posts more than they do. On success, you gain the target trade post; on failure, you pay reparations. The truce lasts only 5 years. Can also be used against feudal realms if they maintain trade posts in the silk road.

CB claim.png 城市征服

A republic-only CB added in patch 1.09. Can be used by patricians as well as doges. Usable if you or your vassal patrician control a trade post in the province. Targets a single city within the province. If used in a county with a vassal's trade post, they get the city instead of you. The city conquest CB cannot be used against characters in the same realm as you.

CB claim.png 伯爵领征服(共和国)

Republic-only single county conquest, only usable if you (or your vassal patrician) already control a city in the province. You must either control a neighboring county or one at most two sea zones away. Patricians who don't already own a county can't use this CB.

CB embargo.png 禁运

此借口可以用于对抗在您领地内有贸易站的商业共和国和他们的领主(如果有的话)。如果您赢了, 每个在您领地内的战败者的贸易站皆被摧毁并给你一笔可观的收入。不像其他战争借口, 您只能在和平的时候使用它。

Horse Lords.png 游牧制宣战理由

Nomads have access to Establish Tributary, and the following exclusive CBs. While they also can use the pagan county conquest CB regardless of religion, non-pagan nomads can only use this CB on other nomads and tribals.

游牧征服

This CB allows Nomads to subjugate non-Nomadic realms. Empires can only be targeted by emperor-level nomads (khagans).

When subjugating a realm that broke away during Nomadic Succession, the CB is completely free. This is controlled by the opinion modifier "-50 Declared Independence", given to the new khagan toward the breakaway ruler and their dynastic direct courtiers and vassals.

Otherwise, it costs 500 prestige and can only be used once every 100 years. If the war becomes invalid, the launched_subjugation timer is refunded, but the prestige is not.

Although religious heads (such as the Pope) can be targeted by this CB, they won't become your vassal (in the recent version of 2.8.3.1, unlike in the past it was possible), all their demesne holdings will be usurped instead.

游牧入侵

Can be launched by nomads whose Population.png is at least 30,000 and 75% of max. Consider granting some lands to fellow clans in order to reach the 75% needed for the invasion; the Humiliate CB can also steal population from another nomad. Costs 100 prestige.

According to CB files, Nomad invasion works like a crusade. It targets a de jure kingdom; all land occupied by your vassal/allies/tributaries will be usurped by yourself (even if outside the targeted kingdom). Titles in the target kingdom held by the defender which are unoccupied will be vassalized instead.

CB subjugation.png 臣服

Also known as "Nomad Expansion", this CB allows any Nomad to vassalize non-nomad or usurp nomad holdings of an independent ruler within a single de jure duchy. It costs 300 prestige. The defender can call (and can be joined by) rulers of the same faith just like in a Holy War. It has a 10 years truce, contrary to a 5 years truce for county conquest or reformed Tengri holy war.

游牧争端

Feuding clans can declare wars against each other to seize a single county. A Khagan cannot use this CB against a vassal clan.

次级部族反叛

If a khagan has the “clans want more land” alert and less than maximum number of clans, a rebel clan will emerge from one of the khagan's demesne. If the rebel clan is sucessful, they will become a vassal khan, their capital being the county they emerged from, and they also gain any counties they occupied.

拥立可汗

A khan can use this CB to replace his liege as khagan. It is triggered either by refusing a tyrannical action, or by delivering an ultimatum as the leader of an "overthrow khagan" faction. On success, the war leader usurps empire-tier titles and executes the previous khagan.

羞辱

此战争借口被用于对抗其他游牧领主,以窃取他们300威望和25%的人口。此借口对于想达到75%人口以使用入侵战争借口的玩家非常有用。

(从游牧制下)解放公国

Non-nomads can use this CB to take a duchy from a nomad realm. This requires a county in the target kingdom, a border, or being at most two sea zones away. The duchy must either be outside the Steppe region, or contain a non-temple settlement (castle, city, or tribe).

On victory, this vassalizes non-nomadic rulers and usurps other titles. Vassalized rulers will get a +40 "Subjugated" opinion buff towards their new liege.

AI rulers are more likely to use this CB when the duchy contains castles or cities, since they'd rather not have to deal with unproductive provinces and nomad agitation.

破碎世界宣战理由

兼并

Wage war for a single county that is adjacent or accessible over a single sea zone. A game rule controls whether this CB is available for 25 years, 100 years, the entire campaign, or not at all.

伟大征服者入侵

A kingdom-level invasion CB usable only by the Great Conquerors generated at the beginning of a Shattered World game. A game rule controls how many Great Conquerors are generated across the map.

触发型战争

These CBs cannot be used by the player, but are triggered by events. In each case, a large army appears under the command of a landless leader. On success, the ruler takes all occupied territory, and possibly higher-level titles as well.

叛乱

主条目:叛乱

Without Dlc icon the old gods.pngThe Old Gods DLC, revolts take the form of a leaderless army that's hostile to everyone, but not at war with anyone; sometimes they will capture a province, but just as often they will disperse. With the DLC, though, they actually have leaders with titular rebel titles and they declare war on you with a special CB. There are three types:

  • CB de jure claim.png Nationalist rebels (e.g. "Persian Liberation Revolt") appear in foreign-cultured provinces that were once part of a kingdom or duchy of the province's culture. They are usually quite large. On success, the leader becomes an independent ruler of the culture. with the kingdom or duchy title and the nickname "The Liberator."
  • CB heretic revolt.png Religious rebels (e.g. "Persian Zoroastrian Uprising") and heretic rebels ("Persian Manichean Uprising") are two different types, but similar. They appear in provinces of heretic or infidel religions. In the case of a heretic revolt, the leader has the Heresiarch trait. They are medium-sized. On success, the leader becomes a duke-level independent ruler.
  • CB de jure claim.png Peasant rebels (e.g. "Shirazian Peasant Revolt") appear in rebellious provinces not meeting either of the above criteria. They are relatively small and the leader has the Peasant Leader trait. On success, he becomes a count-level independent ruler.

In all three cases, the truce from the war lasts only 1 year. Except for peasant revolts, they usurp all occupied counties and their minor holdings, like a tribal invasion.

CB holy war.png 冒险家

主条目:冒险家

Landless claimants to a title may declare their intention to press their claim and recruit an army. Norse, Frankish and Norman nobles without any claims may also attempt to conquer a coastal duchy. In both cases, assassinating the leader before the war starts stops the invasion. When the war starts, the adventurer gains a duchy-level titular title named after him (e.g. "Arnulf's Host"; if he's pressing a claim, the war is called e.g. "Arnulf's Host Claim on Sicily War", otherwise "Arnulf's Conquest of Sicily" which is a special CB). Adventurers have fairly large armies (typically about as big as the total levies of the targeted realm) and are quite dangerous. They automatically receive a treasury of 500 gold.

CB muslim heretic.png 腐化入侵

Muslim dynasties with at least 75% decadence that rule a duchy or higher may draw the ire of a desert tribe determined to end their corrupt rule. The invasion begins in a random realm province with a very large army appearing.

Upon success, the invader gets all occupied holdings and counties (like a tribal invasion). Top-level titles are destroyed and any other duke+ titles held by the defender are usurped. The invader also gets the nickname of "the Conqueror". The Crown Authority of all king+ titles is lowered to Autonomous Vassals.

CB subjugation.png 什叶派哈里发的崛起

A special targeted invasion that may appear in any Sunni kingdom or empire with at least 10% decadence if no Shia caliph exists. A Shia child leader with the Quick.png, Attractive.png and Sayyid.png traits appears holding the duchy-tier titular title "Pretender Shia Caliphate"; the CB is "Shia Caliphate Rising in [kingdom]" e.g. "Shia Caliphate Rising in Egypt". Human-controlled Sunni realms are much less likely (MTTH 10x greater) to be targeted.

His invasion begins in a random province and invades its de jure kingdom (as long as he has at least 6 counties in it and the liege title isn't held by someone else). If he wins, he takes the kingdom title and becomes the Shia caliph, in addition to the usual "tribal invasion" type result of vassalising its de jure vassals and usurping any occupied holdings and counties. The truce lasts only 1 year, so the caliph may well attack his original target again very shortly.

获得宣战理由

This section is Christian-centric, and most of it could be merged into Expanding your realm.

While some of these CBs you'll have merely due to your position, like the independence CB and the law change CBs, many of these can be gained on purpose.

First, the easiest type of CB to gain are claims. There are four primary ways to gain claims:

  1. Have your chancellor forge claims. This doesn't work for anything above the ducal level (skill of 15 needed to forge a ducal claim)
  2. Marry someone who has an inheritable claim. Your children will have the claim and you can then push it
  3. Marry someone in your dynasty to someone who has an inheritable claim. Their children will have the claim, and you'll be able to push it
  4. Invite someone with a claim to your court. You'll then be able to push it

Expanding your realm outside your de jure borders using claims can be tricky: unless they're of your dynasty, a landless claimant to such a title will become independent when you win their war. If you want them to be your vassal instead, you will want to land them first. Since you get a +100 "Pressed my Claim" opinion bonus, you might be able to offer vassalization afterwards, but only if they're the same religion and culture as you - otherwise the "False Religion" and/or "Foreigner" penalties, along with "Not my de jure liege", mean they're unlikely to accept.

Second, de jure claims are also relatively easy to gain. If you can create a duchy or kingdom that overlaps another realm's territory, this will gain you a de jure claim, and the same applies if you usurp it. (Unfortunately, both of these require having more than half of its de jure counties already, so you'll have to find some way to get hold of those.) In addition, after pushing a claim for a duchy, you'll often have de jure claims.

Third, excommunication CBs are easy to get as long as the religion head likes you, but these won't help you grow your realm. They're good for gaining some prestige, though.

Fourth, you can get religious war CBs on essentially the entire world if you convert to a heresy (a Catholic-derived heretic will have CBs on all rulers except Orthodox and Miaphysite ones or other Catholic-derived heretics, while a Muslim heretic will have CBs on absolutely everyone except other followers of the same heresy). As a Catholic, the easiest way to get heresy to appear so that you can convert is appointing an antipope, as this lowers the moral authority of the church. The lower the moral authority of the church, the more likely heresy is to spread. Then upon the first chance you get, you should change to whatever heresy arises. Another option is to have your court chaplain research cultural tech until a heretic find appears. So while the drawbacks of heresy are severe (-30 opinion with all non-heretics, and increased rebel risk), the advantages when it comes to expansion are huge. However, note that it's a two-way street - if you convert to a Catholic heresy then all Catholic rulers get a Holy War CB on you, and the Pope may even declare a Crusade against you.

Fifth, the pope will award strong, uninheritable claims to counties and duchies held by Catholic rulers, in exchange for some prestige and an opinion penalty. If the pope is your vassal (an emperor tier ruler who claims the papacy in the name of his antipope will receive the new pope as vassal), he will never refuse a request, regardless of opinion modifiers. This allows you to obtain one county or ducal claim per 100 piety (or 50 piety with papal investiture). You can use "Request Claim" to obtain any number of claims and then utilize "Claim all" CB. This strategy allows you to conquer vast amounts of land, even entire kingdoms with enough piety, in a single war, and allows you to appoint new count and duke level vassals on the newly conquered territory.

使用你的宣战理由

Pushing your own claims and similar is rather straight forward. When pushing someone else's claim however you have to be careful, or they'll end up as an independent realm. They'll only be your vassal if they are already your vassal, they're in your dynasty, or the claim you pushed was for an area that is de jure part of your title(s). If the title they took is at the same level as yours or above, they'll be independent even if any of the above conditions apply, unless you have a liege above you where the conditions still apply.

The easiest way to ensure that they'll be part of your realm after pushing their claim is granting them a county or barony in your realm first. Then, the only way they can become independent as a result of the claim pushed is if the title they gain is at the same tier as yours or higher. It should be noted that Hindu characters cannot be granted a holding which their caste cannot hold.

战争无结果终止

Sometimes a war ends not with one side winning, or a white peace, but inconclusively. This happens when the war can no longer be pursued for some reason - usually because the casus belli is no longer valid. This does not, however, mean that a CB that could no longer be used leads to a war using it becoming invalid; the invalidation and usability conditions are separate, though usually related.

Some common messages are:

[War name] ended inconclusively (Casus Belli no longer valid)
This means that the war has become completely unjustifiable. For claim wars, this may mean the claimant died or the defender lost the wargoal for some other reason. For holy wars and crusades, it may mean the defender changed religion to one that can no longer be the target of such a war, usually by the special decision for converting to the attacker's religion. Note that a successful claim war won't invalidate other claim wars on the same title - the war simply continues against the new holder.
[War name] ended inconclusively (Liege Change for [Defender])
You can only attack someone if either their direct liege is one of your lieges, or they are independent. When they become a vassal of someone who isn't your liege, the defender isn't a valid target any more, so rather than transferring the war to the new liege, the war simply ends. This frequently happens when attacking rebelling vassals when their rebellion ends. Again, note this doesn't invalidate other claim wars on the same title, which instead transfer to the new holder - even if he is a vassal.
[War name] ended inconclusively ([Defender] became unlanded)
This is pretty self-explanatory. The defender lost all his landed titles for some reason (perhaps in another war or due to his liege revoking all his titles), and is no longer a valid war target.
[War name] ended inconclusively ([Defender] joined [Attacker's Liege]'s war as attacker)
A vassal warred an independent realm allied to his liege, but the liege then called the independent ruler to war as an ally. This overrides the vassal's war.
[War Name] ended inconclusively (Realm Peace is enforced in the realm)
DLC icon Conclave.pngConclave only. The combatants' liege's council enforced realm peace mid-war, forcing all in-progress wars inside the realm to abort.
[War name] ended inconclusively
Without further explanation, this probably means the war was a faction or plot war and the leader died. With the leader gone, there is no one left to enforce demands, surrender, or sign a white peace, and so the war ends.
This may also happen in the event of a Tributary war or Free Captives war if the defender surrenders by decision.

战争命名

You can identify what Casus Belli was used to declare a war by its name. In addition to the examples below, there may be an ordinal prefix indicating that this is the Nth war of that name to have been declared (several may be ongoing at once, e.g. "Byzantine Holy War for Syria" and "2nd Byzantine Holy War for Syria" might be declared at the same time, both targeting the de jure Emirate of Syria, but the parts of it in two different realms).

For some wars, the result is that someone "gains or vassalises" one or more titles. This means that titles that can be vassalised are vassalised, and all the others are gained. Generally a title is gained if vassalising would end up also vassalising a title that wasn't being targeted. For example in the case of a holy war targeting a duchy in which one of the counts had land outside that de jure duchy, the attacker doesn't become their new liege, but just usurps the target titles.

总结摘要

Casus belli and claims are easy to gain as long as you know what you're doing. Following these tips you should be able to expand easily.

  • Most wars incur a truce which lasts either 10 years or until the death of one of the war leaders.
  • Marry claimants with inheritable claims to gain more claims
  • Marry your dynasty members to characters with inheritable claims (marry male claimants matrilineally if possible)
  • Invite males with inheritable claims and grant them a county
  • Invite pretenders and grant them a county
  • Make the pope love you and you can farm prestige off of excommunication
  • Go heretic and you'll have CBs on everyone
  • Create or usurp duchies or kingdoms that overlap the territory of other realms

Additionally, different CBs have different values to you as a ruler. If you have more than one CB, consider pressing them in this order:

  • Invasion/Crusade - you gain all land you occupy under the Kingdom title (requires a special decision with the new Crusades)
  • Holy War - you gain all heretic/infidel held land in the targeted duchy
  • Personal Claim - you can fill up your demesne or select the new holder of the county yourself, can push more than one on a given ruler at a time. Note that you don't get the title's vassals although they become your vassals.
  • County Conquest - costs piety; can only be pressed one county at a time
  • Seize County - you've already got one barony in this county, but this gives you the other 2/3rds of it.
  • Dynastic Ducal/County Claim - install a member of your dynasty and add land to your realm.
  • Vassal Ducal/County Claim - expands your realm, but the new holder isn't of your dynasty and you're making one of your current vassals more powerful
  • Dynastic Kingdom Claim - unless you're an Emperor, this will install a dynastic ally into a Kingdom who can help you in future wars.
  • Seize Coastal City - you're only getting one barony-level title out of this.
  • Embargo/Excommunication - Great for bringing in money or prestige/piety, but won't expand your realm.
