    Default Gifts to allies / vassals

    In past TW games, you had the option of offering sums of money to allies or vassals directly, in order to shore up their armies and empires. Now you can only give gifts, and that's a question mark.

    Does the gift go to the treasury? Is it a "gift" or is it a sum of money as well that can help your allies and vassals?

    I want to shore up the Western Roman Empire as ERE, gave them a gift, but I have no clue whether this will help them or just our relations.

    Thoughts?

    It does mean you give them cash. But since the WRE (or the ERE) under the AI has problems beyond the monetary. They may stem from a cash flow problem yes but they can't be solved by throwing some money at it quickly. As the ERE I've thrown literally half a million talents at the WRE and had it do little to prop them up. As the WRE you can prop up the ERE with cash injections. Takes about 200,000 talents to start to turn things around, but it can be done.

    So in essence, not much chance of propping them up? Any other ideas on how to shore up the WRE?

    Not any super effective way. Since you can't gift territory as a matter of course.

    It does make it really tough to keep the empire going in the West without gifting provinces - and you can't help them with armies either, because you need them around.
