Thread: Cheating to kill the pope

    Default Cheating to kill the pope

    Ok don't start lecturing about cheating because I think this more like ending the guys life a bit prematurly than cheating :P

    Basically for my 1st campaign ever I have more cardinals than anyone else. So I want to have a papal election But the popes only like 50...

    So using Medieval Shell I figure I can kill him right? I did soem research and on rome apparently kill_character charactername worked. As apparently alot of other cheats are the same I figured it'd work.

    But I can't vfor the life of me get it working. What do I put as the character name? His Official title is Pope Gregory Of The Papal States. Do I put Pope, Pope Gregory, Pope Gregory of the papal states? Do I include spaces?

    I don't think that cheat works. I tried using it to eliminate a few of my worthless agents (ever created a merchant or diplomat who had a zero skill straight out of the box?), and I keep getting the error message "unrecognized command".

    Kill him with assassins.

    And if you really want to cheat use the save/load version so you don't suffer excomm if you fail.
    Popes are not easy to kill, but they are not that hard either.

    Hah hah, as HRE I defeated the Pope in a battle, and two of their Papal States armies with him. Actually pretty funny to see the Pope in the before-battle view where you see the balance of forces. The Pope leading an army

    So yeah... kind of an extreme and too open way, but I'd say try it out.
    The only other way I also see is like said train an assassin to get him. If there was only a way like in RTW where you could just move in a spy who was infected with plague.
    Emotion, passions, and desires are, thus peace is not.
    Emotion: you have it or it has you.

    You can use a spy as a plague bearer to spread it. It works just fine in this game.
