It definitely requires players to willingly have their characters submit themselves to the religious authority. Get enough people like that in secular power positions, and you can make something happen.

If people need to willingly sabotage themselves in order for religion to work, maybe it's time to admit that religion, as a system, is broken?

Yes, but that is true for anything in the game.
To some extent, yes.

Velax is "emperor" because people with authority will submit to him.   It is no different and doesn't require game mechanics to implement.
Well, that and the biggest damned a war machine on the island. So, yeah, it is a bit different.

Hey now, if we could "raise" our own armies, it would be a pretty damn big one. :P    If not noble wise, at least cash value wise :D   Something has to be said about Zonasa, Batesaor, Alanurs, Osaliel, Ortedail, Hadthes, and Masahakon all having Elder Lords :D

A crusade feature would be really cool, where nobles of the religion choose whether or not  to join in on the crusade, such that their realm doesn't need to declare war. Could be on a realm, and then those of the realm being crusaded on must choose to leave their realm to join the crusade, or be kicked out of the religion.

Hatdhes doesn't have an Elder lord.

Ah, you're right, my mistake.    Want to convert? :D

Oh noes! Ohnar West declares war on Sorraine!

Is anyone surprised that the Ohnarians would go back on their word, and attack?

I'm surprised it took this long, and that their attack was so obvious. Now let's make sure we get our regions back!

Also wtf: this thread's icon is a cellphone?

With Sorraine's track record for war I think you should worry about keeping what you have.

Meh, Arcaea will wipe out OW. With Cathay pretty much handled, Sorraine, Coralynth, and drib-drabs of Arcaea will wipe out OW.

Srsly, though, why the late entry? Seems pretty poorly timed.

Ingall wanted to attack before, but internal disputes prevented him. They've apparently now been resolved.

If Ohnar West had attacked a month ago they'd have probably won. They've missed the boat now though and I really can't see how they can expect to win.

Agreed. If taken more by surprise while the Empire was busy, they might have had a chance. Now some peasants in Sorraine will suffer for a few days, but then OW will suffer a whole lot more. Too bad we don't have the nobility to expand our lands :) Maybe attract nobles by offering Lordships?
