Ideoligion

From RimWorld Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Ideoligions are both a system of mechanics introduced by, and the primary focus of, the Ideology DLC. They allow colonies to introduce a variety of new restrictions and capabilities to change gameplay, as well as new interactions with other factions.

Mechanics

Choose up to ? memes, chose precepts as allowed by those memes, pick roles and rituals and stuff. Your starting pawns start with your ideoligion, other pawns can be converted

Fluid ideoligions

Every time you do a ritual or convert a prisoner you gain points, once you get 10 of them you can change your ideology in some way, such as by adding or changing a meme. There is a point counter just below "styles" in the ideoligion tab.

Structure

Choosing your structure affects which symbols the game uses for your ideoligion. It does not affect gameplay.
