Hallo guys, in this thread i wanna talk about the possible design and options for a future European DLCs minor factions. I wont directly include any of the major missing factions (Danes, Poles and Italians) or any of the existing factions but there might some that are aligned with those factions due to the nature of how densely populated Europe is with factions. this list is probably not going to be full or perfect and i would encourage people to come up with other ideas as well.
The way i see it the options for minor Civs in Europe can at be large be grouped into 3:
Nationalities, that otherwise dont really make sense as full factions
Ideologies, such as legitimist, republicans, nationalist etc.
Religion, such as catholic or protestant
here is my suggestions:
Jacobite’s, nationality and ideology.
The jacobites where an organisation of legitimist in the British isle that wanted the senior line of the house of Stuart to restoration of the British throne. Centered mostly in Scotland and Ireland they where eventually crushed by the British government.
Unit: Jacobite swordsman
Maps: Scotland, Ireland and the British isle in general.
People against the throne, you should already know that. more particularly based on the French revolution.
Unit: Citizens Militia
Maps: Western European maps.
Scandinavian Volunteers/nationalist, ideology.
Based on esp Danish and Norwegian free shooter and volunteer regiments, but not part of the regular forces of the nation.
Units: Friskytte and Militia spearman.
but these are just my ideas so far, I’d love to hear you guys ideas esp for eastern Europe and Italian area.
