Fun fact. Do you guys know of that huge music mod that covers all civs in HOI4 that you can get on MODDB? Well supposedly it's outdated. But it runs just fine with modern HOI4 just as long as you change the version ID in the .mod file.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

Also every religion is a meme.

Is it even possible to practically reform the slavic faith? I mean the Vikings or Finns are easy. But with the slavs the holy spots are all over the place.
Also, has anyone here yet used the ruler designer to start with a Greek Hellenic character? I've been thinking of starting up a game as an immortal (via cheats) reincarnation of Alexander the Great trying to reconquer the world from the middle of nowhere in India.

They aren't that far apart. The two holy sites in Russia are both rather close to the de jure Wendish Empire.
Your only obstacle after the Hungarian Deathbringers will likely be the Rurikid Dynasty. They blob, sure, but you'll have a large army by that point.

I'm pretty sure the feeling of finally finding a way to abuse game mechanics in your favor is literally better than sex.

It seems I didn't brainwash convert every secret pagan in my realm.
Sympathy for paganism is common and I occasionally see the highly suspicious thing when looking at my vassals.
