As you may already know, artifacts are making a triumphant return to the Royal Court. Inspirations are one of the ways to acquire artifacts, and the process differs from CK 2.
Characters all over the world can earn what is called Inspiration. Inspirations arise when a character seeks to create something extraordinary, which causes the character to want to pursue the means of realizing their inspiration. They might want to write a great book of knowledge, weave a tapestry, or forge a magnificent crown!
There are many different types of inspiration, all resulting in various types of artifacts at the end. Inspiration can be broad, like someone who just wants to forge a weapon, or very specific like a character who wants to forge a sword.
Inspirations only occur for characters without land. Inspired characters will travel the world, from court to court, in search of a wealthy monarch to sponsor them and their creation. Realms with great magnitude may attract inspired characters more frequently than those with low magnitude. By giving them a greater chance to receive skilled craftsmen who will be able to forge an artifact that meets your expectations. Inspirations make landless characters useful, in addition to just pushing their claim to land.
Once an inspired character arrives at your yard, you can choose to sponsor them by giving them the gold they request. The amount they ask is proportional to their competence. The relevant skill depends on the type of artifact they wish to craft. For example, a weapon and the quality it obtains depend on the character’s martial skills and prowess. Writing a book, on the other hand, depends on learning.
After funding an inspiration, it will take some time for the character to create the artifact. As the creation progresses, various situations can arise, such as the character asking for better materials to work with, for example, or a plethora of other things that happen during in-game events. that these events cause you to take influence the quality of the artifact that is made.
An inspiration gains progress similar to that of a diagram. You will progress based on a chance each month, which will vary the actual time it takes to complete. Once the inspiration is reached, the character will approach you to present his creation to you.
