Below is a list of commands and any parameter they accept (in order, if more than one) with a description of what the command will do.
- For "Character" scope, if none is given then it will default to the player (some commands excepted, such as age). Most targeted commands accept character ids as the optional 2nd parameter, notable exceptions are religion/culture which if the character id is added it must be the first parameter ("religion orthodox" or "religion 555 orthodox"). If no parameters are listed then assume that it has a single optional character id parameter.
- For "None" scope there is only one way to use it, for "Global" scope it will toggle things globally, example: marry_anyone allows ALL characters to marry anyone.
- Character attributes (diplomacy, intrigue, etc.) normally range from 0-20. However, as the attributes are stored in signed bytes, it ranges from -128 to 127. Correspondingly, the maximum base value a character can achieve is 127. Nonetheless, upon loading a savegame, the base value will be reduced to 100 - if it was above this value.
- <Character ID> can be found by using the Charinfo function and hovering over the person's name.
- <Province ID> corresponds to the "ID" number found in the chart of Counties.
- Replace spaces in parameter names with underscore (_).
- NOTE: ANY COMMAND BEGINNING WITH "debug_" IS ACCESSIBLE ONLY BY DEVELOPERS—NOT BY PLAYERS.

- Character ID: Found using the 'charinfo' command. It is listed on with the usual mouse-over stats.
- Province ID: See provinces
- Title Name: For instance e_britannia. It is usually a predictable name with Empires starting with "e", Kingdoms with "k", Duchies with "d", Counties with "c", and baronies/bishoprics/cities with "b". Some exceptions exist, such as Rome is c_roma, the Holy Roman Empire is e_hre, the duchy of the isles is d_western_isles, the county of Leon in Brittany is c_french_leon, and the bishopric of Tyddewi in Dyfed is b_st_davids. Refer to common/landed_titles/landed_titles.txt if you get stuck. Hovering over a title's flag shows you the name of the title, as long as you have charinfo active.
- Nickname: See nicknames, format is nick_the_xxx
- Trait Name: See traits
- Settlement Name: The in-game name for the holding in question, as specified by landed_titles.txt. For example b_paris. Titles with cultural names can be hard to guess. Search for those by county name if you get lost.
