Quick Overview

The add_pa command increases the level of Patriarch Authority of a specified tag (country) in Europa Universalis IV.

The amount of Patriarch Authority to be added can be specified as a numerical value.

The higher the Patriarch Authority, the more benefits a country can gain, such as increased manpower, missionary strength and reduced unrest.

In-Depth Description

The command add_pa is used in Europa Universalis IV to add patriarch authority to a specified tag.

A tag in EU4 is a three-letter code that represents a specific game country. For example, the tag for France is FRA.

The patriarch authority is a unique mechanic in the game for countries of the Orthodox Christian faith. It represents the religious influence of the Orthodox Church on the nation. A high patriarch authority can offer several benefits such as increased manpower, missionary strength, and lower revolt risk.

By using add_pa command followed by the amount you want to add and the tag of the country, you can directly increase the patriarch authority of that country. This can be a viable strategy when you want to focus on internal stability and defensive aspects of your Orthodox nation.
