Hochstift Osnabrück is a mini-mod that enhances the gameplay of the Holy Roman Empire by re-introducing the Prince-Bishopric of Osnabrück to EU4.
Abstracted out of the vanilla game as a province of the Prince-Bishopric of Münster, Osnabrück actually has quite a storied history at the heart of the reformation and was only subordinate to Münster in religious terms and not always on political ones. It deserves to be a princely state in its own right.
This mod is the first part of an attempt to introduce more depth to the diocese politics of the Holy Roman Empire.
✝ Adds the Prince-Bishopric of Osnabrück ✝ Adds the secular Principality of Wäästfaln as a potential nation (distinct from the Napoleonic client state) complete with secular national ideas ✝ More authentic history including realistic leaders, a diocese union under Münster, and constant changes between Lutherianism and Catholicism (with the Prince-Bishop and city often being out of sync) ✝ Provides a uniquely challenging HRE experience as a bishopric with very little military power, surrounded by religiously motivated city-states. Alternatively, take on Franz von Waldeck's challenge of forming the secular Principality of Wäästfaln by starting as Prince-Bishop of Münster in 1544. ✝ Another Prince is always good for making things more interesting
✝ Historically inspired reformation events around the Bishoprics ✝ Prince-Bishopric of Minden ✝ Unique decisions
