About

Old World - The Sacred and the Profane brings a touch of religious fervor to your games with a rich variety of new content that explores how religion impacted the fortunes of ancient empires. Enjoy over 350 new events, recruit new historical characters, and deal with the demands of the clergy as you try to accommodate the diverse faiths within your empire. Be warned, if a religion doesn't approve of your rule, you could end up dealing with dissent, riots, or even worse consequences.


Old World - The Sacred and The Profane includes:

  • Over 350 New Events - From small rituals and everyday beliefs to the power struggles of official religions and the emergence of world traditions, you must stay alert and stay calm to navigate the complex world of ancient lore.
  • Clergy Characters - These new characters can join your court and offer their own quests and projects. How much they can benefit you depends on what the religion they practice thinks about you. Existing characters can be introduced to the clergy through a quest available from the leader of the official religion.
  • Over 10 Character Attributes - The Sacred and The Profane adds a variety of new attributes to characters, including those that are basic, event-related, and unique to clergy characters.

Six new historical characters:

  • Mani, the founder of Manichaeism
  • Paulo, an ardent convert to Christianity and one of the first bishops
  • Josephus, Rebel Jew, General and Scholar
  • Ostanes, a great user of magic that legends speak of
  • Sappho, Greek poetess
  • Hypatia, Alexandrian scientist and philosopher

Mechanics of religious dissent - The negative opinion of a religion can cause dissent in cities that practice it. The consequences can be lasting.

  • More than 10 new "cult" projects - There are new cult improvements that can be added through events, as well as improvements to existing shrines. Each cult confers a unique and powerful effect.
  • This DLC pack presents several what-if situations, the "what ifs" of the past, reflecting a time when many religions were young and the world's known empires were forced to grapple with competitions between old and new faiths.
