Crusader Kings 3 thrives on the random events that can plague your characters during their reign, but not all of those random events are bad. In fact, there’s a chance that your ruler can become a witch. If you accept, your new status can eventually grow your very own coven. Interested? This guide will tell you how to create your very own coven in Crusader Kings 3.
How To Create a Witch Coven
To create your own witch coven, all you have to do is become a witch yourself and turn 60% of your family into witches. After you become a witch, a new scheme will open up that will allow you to convert people. When you have converted enough people, you may then found your own coven. However, though becoming a witch sounds easy, in reality, Crusader Kings 3 makes it pretty difficult. To become a witch, you must first be approached by someone who is a witch. This is a random event. You won’t be able to force it, so, be patient. This event will have a woman come into your court and try to convert you into following the Horned God. Accept her offer and congratulations! You are now a witch.
After that, you are free to convert as many people as you wish. However, while you could convert the world, it’s best to start with your family. Again, to create a coven, 60% of your house needs to be in on your witchy secret. Once you become a witch, the scheme Convert to Witchcraft will become available.
This scheme lasts about 9 months, but as soon as it is finished, you’ll have the option to convert your target. Be aware that these schemes are still privy to the same success and fail rate as your other schemes. If the character you are trying to convert doesn’t like you, your scheme could result in failure. The consequences of which can be quite fiery if you get my drift.

Once you have converted the right amount of people, the only other real requirement is that your ruler is the current head of their house. With those requirements met, you may now make the decision to found your coven. Go over to the Decisions panel and Found Witch Coven should be highlighted. Click on it and from there you can accept the responsibility of founding your own coven. And there you go! Your family now has a darker secret that shall last for generations.
Founding your coven comes with a few perks. For one, any children of your family who are educated by a witch always becomes a witch. There is also the bonus of a higher success rate of your witches converting others to witchcraft. If that isn’t enough for you, it also comes with these stat boosts:
- Fertility: +10%
- Health: Medium Boost
- Hostile Scheme Power: +10.0
- Hostile Scheme Resistance: +10.0
That’s all you guys need to found your own witch coven. Though it might not seem like much, having this happen during a playthrough was a nice surprise. If the chance ever comes your way, I would highly recommend using this witchy path to spice up your game.
