Gay rulers possible?
Yeah I am considering to get this game. Sounds interesting enough but wanna know if it is possible to create gay rulers or non-heterosexual ones?

Yes but if you use the default game rules then homosexuality will be disliked by most. There's heterosexuality, homosexuality, bisexuality and asexuality.

To add to that, you can change the gamerules but some will disable achievements. Sexuality and gender acceptance/equality are some of them.

Yes there's even a gamerule to make some sexuality more common and there's an other to autorise gay mariage but it disables ironman mode

Also i recommand that you buy the game from other legit websites witch i can't say the name because Steam censors them. I found the Royal edition for 30€ on a website
Being asexual or homosexual in a heterosexual pairing will produce heirs at a very slow rate to nonexistent, but it makes you immune to hetero-seduction and romance schemes.

You also run the risk of deviancy, fornicator, and adulterer (if you have relations outside of marriage), which will piss off people who consider those traits sinful as part of their religion.

Although many religions and cultures do share samesex and gender equality customs, the dominant cultures and religions of this time did not.

There are game rules that flip this, as well as make homosexuality more common than the 10% frequency it is, as well.

There are of course mods out there that expand upon sexuality and gender, but for the most part, since sexuality and gender weren't a significant social issue during the Midieval era, they're not hardcoded into the game in the same understanding we have in 21st century society.

The primary goal of CK3 is your dynasty and ensuring its survival by any means necessary. You can still have a child with your spouse if you aren't sexually compatible, but it just makes it significantly harder. You'll probably have 1-3 children instead of the more common 6-10.

Yes, though you may not be able to play with achievements to play the way you want to.

- Heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, and asexual orientations exist in default gameplay. This affects who you can seduce and romance, and in the case of non-heterosexual orientations, reduces your chance of kids somewhat.

- Same-sex marriage is disallowed by default, but there's a game setting to turn it on (disables achievements.)

- Most faiths (but not all) see same-sex relations as a crime by default, but there's a game setting to change that (disables achievements.)

- If you choose to play with only same-sex relations, you will end up with no heirs. There is no way to adopt kids in the base game, but there are mods for this. (also disables achievements.)

- You can create your own religion in the game, so you could create your own religion that allows same-sex relations.

The game is almost a perfect sandbox with cultural choices like monogomy being a big value, as well as a more hedonistic lifestyle.

This should be explored more in the game, especially if you try to revive the roman or greek cultures.

Sorry Mod Dude/Dudette, but I think you ought to re-read the thread. All posts appear to be on topic and legitimate answers to what appears to be a legitimate question.

If you are going by real life? Back during those times, homosexuality and other forms of expression through different identities would of been considered unnatural and the state religion had a much bigger impact with the people and the state as well, so part of the laws would include almost certainly imprisoning by such vile practices (from their point of view) or in some countries with other forms of religion, executions. Back then it was heterosexuality or asexuality, there was no other way.

At least this game offers those choices and Paradox thankfully decided not to include the more intolerant aspects of the way the medieval state ran its affairs.

There were some questionable posts that have been removed, I think that's what the mod is referring to.

This isn't true. Your character's sexuality doesn't affect fertility in CK3. Only thing it affects is who the character will take as a lover.
My gay son made an excellent ruler. Much less heirs running around when your son doesn't like poon

That's because the off-topic posts have been removed.

Where did I ever discuss "fertility" in my post?
I don't know the specifics of automated heir making, I know lover/soulmate increases the automation, so many people would rather pefer "lay with" as the end result of the scheme than making the lover/soulmate relationship, but I have seen extensive discussion about homosexuals with spouses not making as frequent as heirs as heterosexual pairings.

Again, I don't know the internal mechanics of this, so I can't disprove or prove it, but I never discussed fertility :b
