Duration of Peace Treaties?

SeanOfVASeanOfVA Registered Users Posts: 9
When I am at war with a faction and have taken enough of their territory for now and need to consolidate my gains I tend to make peace with them. However, I've read elsewhere that breaking treaties can have a dire effect on your diplomacy reputation. So, I am curious how long a peace treaty needs to go before I can safely break it?

    It's been awhile but, if I recall correctly, the time having the treaty does little to enhance anything. Breaking the treaty will penalize your relationships with the faction and any of their friends/allies.

    The global impact on your faction's reputation will slowly subside. It only takes a few turns, eight or nine or so. If you do it several times though the reputation hit lasts longer.

    All treaties need to be honoured for 10 turns before breaking them otherwise you take a hit on your diplomatic rating.

    Great, thanks for that. A clarification, do Trade Agreements fall under this same 10 turn minimum rule?

    No worries, yes they do.
