Michael Gladius Posted November 12, 2020 Share Posted November 12, 2020 (edited) Right now, the ability to assign governors is limited by the size of the royal court. This means, if I have 12 provinces then I can't fill them all. I'd like to propose a minor class that would be weaker than the royal court, but still useful. Minor governors Minor governors are, as the name suggests, designed to be governors of provinces. They are solely meant to increase production, but are not as efficient as royal court members. They would not be able to level up, but would instead rely entirely on the bonuses of the kingdom's traditions. There would also be no marshals available as minor governors, as they will be minor commanders instead. Minor commanders For minor marshal equivalents, we will have minor commanders. They will be available only to units which have a tradition- using the Developers' cavalry example, only nations with "Cavalry Tactics" will spawn minor commanders with their larger cavalry units. These will not be separate units, but will be part of a formation acting as a captain and providing a morale boost to his own unit and others around it. If the minor commander dies, his unit will almost always flee, and adjacent units will lose morale. Minor commanders can also inspire bloodlust in their troops, which will lead to them blindly attacking the enemy without being able to be controlled. Many medieval battles suffered from hot-blooded knights charging ahead of the army, with disastrous consequences. Luckily, if they are out of reach of the enemy long enough then they will eventually cool down and return to player control. If a unit reaches elite status (3 stars), then the minor marshal has a chance to rally the troops if the major marshal falls in battle. But beware! Spies can bribe them into defecting or retreating from the battlefield without fighting.
