The Steward perk tree broadly enhances the growth and efficiency of your kingdom. This is manifest in significantly extracting more taxes from your villages and mines, increasing the production of all farms, and increasing the growth rate of settlements and villages (especially while you wait in them). In addition you can increase the rate of recovery for any villages that have been raided, and decrease food consumption for a settlement while it is under siege, allowing not just for an extended siege capacity, but also faster regrowth. You can also choose to increase the cap on the number of companions that you can recruit, initially by 1 at level 200, but later by 1 for each town that you own at level 250.

Note: Each of the perks listed under a specific level are mutually exclusive. If you invest in one at a particular level, you will never be able to invest in the other at that same level.
