Character finder

Searching for Abbasid characters with religious sympathy traits

Dialog find character.png The Character finder is a powerful tool. It can be opened by clicking a button at the bottom right of the screen, or by pressing the period key (.). Be aware that using this tool will reduce the game's challenge, immersion, and possibly fun.

Free text search[edit]

By typing into the box at the top, you can narrow the search by:

  • Given names
  • Dynasty names
  • Names of claimed titles
  • Names of artifacts
  • Traits
    • Displayed trait names up to the first space
    • Internal trait names after any underscore
      • For example, "leader" matches many leadership traits, including Unyielding Unyielding leader.png because its internal name is unyielding_leader.
    • Search for multiple traits: "genius strong" to jumpstart your eugenics program
