Dominance of the Tribes
The Tribes have grown so powerful they assumed de facto control over our country.

Dominance of the Tribes[1] is a disaster that may occur in countries with a powerful TribesTribes estate.

The country has a TribesTribes estate which has at least 80 Estate influence influence.

If these prerequisites are met, the monthly progress can begin.

Monthly progress increases if Monthly progress decreases if

The country:

  • does not have an ongoing disaster.
  • has a Tribes estate with at least 100 influence.
The country:
  • has an ongoing disaster or has a Tribes estate with less than 100 influence.
The country
+5% has a Tribes estate with at least 100 influence.
−1% always

Start[edit | edit source]

If the progress reaches 100%, the disaster will start with the following event:


Msg event.pngThe $ESTATE_NOMADIC_TRIBES$ Seize Power

$MONARCH$ has allowed the $ESTATE_NOMADIC_TRIBES$ of $COUNTRY$ to grow too powerful and now they have made their move. Using the influence they already had over our state in terms of control over everything from tax collection to the directing and recruitment of our armies, they have effectively seized the reins of government and turned the $MONARCHTITLE$ into little more than their puppet.

Trigger conditions

Is triggered only by

The Tribes have made the Khan into their puppet, enforcing unwanted laws and traditions. To take the power back from them we will need to curtail their power and privileges.
