Bannerlord Social Perks: Charm

The Charm perk tree essentially allows you to more effectively increase renown and influence on the campaign map. This will allow you to secure the loyalty of your subjects, both in settlements and within your army. It will also make your life easier in terms of being able to persuade both allies and enemies to do specific things. The Virile level 25 skill can be useful if you want to increase the chances of having numerous children, but this isn’t usually necessary since most partners will provide enough. The 125 Firebrand skill is incredibly useful, allowing you to initiate kingdom decisions with 50% less influence cost. The level 250 Camaraderie perk is also useful if you want to maximize the number of companions. Ultimately, it’s worth investing in this tree above most others, since it will make your life much easier as you navigate the politics of the realm.
