Thread: Bug - choosing a new heir

    Default Bug - choosing a new heir

    Playing as SPQR and I get a request to choose a new faction heir, obviously I know that my faction leader must have died. So, I choose the new heir and....he becomes the faction leader!, bypassing the existing faction heir.

    Sounds weird, don't think you'll have that happen very often, but congrats on having your favourite pole vault into position!

    Hahaha...I fear that he is not ready for the burden yet.

    Just to say...I've looked again. It wasn't the guy I chose to be the new heir apparent who became the new daction leader, it was the old leader's son...who happened to have the same name.

    Just to update. Playing another Romani campaign and the same thing happened. Marcus Atilius Regulus - who I set as potential heir - becomes heir on the death of Dentatus. No matter who I set as potential faction heir following Dentatus' death, once Valerius Maximus dies Marcus Atilius Regulus (the eponymous son) becomes faction heir, bypassing the potential faction heir. Perhaps there's a hangover from 'first born'...or whatever it's called affecting the choice of heir?

    I haven't found my choice of potential successor matters so far (Epeiros), the engine always chooses a new Heir irrespective of a potential.
    It began on seven hills - an EB 1.1 Romani AAR with historical house-rules (now ceased)
    Heirs to Lysimachos - an EB 1.1 Epeiros-as-Pergamon AAR with semi-historical houserules (now ceased)

    I was going to say that for SPQR I don't think it's really an issue - what matters there is who has Imperium at any given time, but for such as Epeiros, Mcedonia, Seleucids etc., where there is a succession it might be more of an issue. But, having said that.... successions never really went all that smoothly in real life, did they? :-P
