My Majesty Priesthood Faction Question and Answers Guide

Did you think keeping medieval priests happy would be easy? No way.

Oh, the priesthood. An utterly confusing faction in My Majesty that will make you want to pull out your hair when their seemingly well-meaning requests backfire hard.

Your kingdom's abbots, monks, and priests are pretty much exactly what you'd expect from medieval priesthood: overzealous and prudish. You get some of the strangest requests from the priesthood and nobility, and you may find they both agree on a number of issues you come across.

As with any other faction, choosing the right answer when dealing with the priesthood is like walking on eggshells. Your priests are a bit more straightforward than some of your other subjects, though -- you can generally tell when they will love or hate your decisions.

Unfortunately a lot of what your priests want is not really what the rest of the kingdom wants.

If you want some answer stats for the other factions in My Majesty, I've written similar guides (that are also in progress) for the five other factions as well:

How to use this guide

There are so many requests you get in the game that it's hard to log them all -- what you see here is by no means the full amount of questions and answers you're going to have to deal with from your priesthood. But more are going to be added!

Most of the questions/requests here only have the information for one answer. This will also change as I update this guide regularly.

The game is full of typographical errors by default. Most typos and grammatical issues you run into during My Majesty are still here in this guide to make it easier for you to find what you're looking for.

Lastly, important words in each request are also highlighted to make it easier to find the information you want.
