General Rank Ups

Nathan Garvin

Military Rank I

Your general - whomever you appointed to the task - is worried about the shape of the barony’s military, and with a horde of trolls possibly lurking in the forest, it’s a subject worth being concerned over.

Response Pleased Displeased Effect
Open unrestricted recruitment. Kassil Amiri Military +1, Strength in Numbers (+1 on opportunity rolls)
Select the strongest… Amiri Regongar Military +1, Talented Recruits (+1 on problem rolls)
Select those who have ambition. Regongar Kassil Military +1, Ambitious Recruits (+2 on event rolls, -1 Military on failure)

If you pick the option “Open unrestricted recruitment. Anyone with the will for it is good enough for our army.” you’ll please Kassil and displease Amiri. If you pick “Select the strongest and most skillful recruits. I need real fighters.” you’ll please Amiri and displease Regongar. Picking “Select those who have ambition. Soldiers who dream of glory and rank always serve better.” will please Regongar and displease Kassil. Finally, if you tell your general to “Make your own decision.” you’ll please all three of them, presumably encouraging them to pursue the specific action listed above that pleased them when you mentioned it. Meeting with your general on this matter, regardless of their pleasure or displeasure, will give you a Military +1 bonus.

This first choice is somewhat uncommon in that your choice will unlock a follow up project your general can carry out:

Strength in Numbers (50 BP, 14 days) will give your General a +1 bonus to resolving opportunities.

Talented Recruits (50 BP, 14 days) will give your General a +1 bonus to resolving problems.

Ambitious Recruits (75 BP, 14 days) will give your General a +2 bonus on all event rolls, but should you fail you’ll lose -1 Military, along with whatever effects failure normally has.

At the mansion of the Swordlord Jamandi Aldori, adventurers have gathered, lured by the promise of dominion should one of them conquer the nearby Stolen Lands and oust its current overlord - the Stag Lord. You are one such adventurer, and Jamandi’s offer isn’t just a benevolent call-to-arms to make the Stolen Lands safe for normal folk, there’s political angles to its conquest, and the ultimate allegience of its new ruler. More than that, however, a sinister, primordial force has her own interests in the Stolen Lands, and a desire to see new rulers rise… and fall. The Pathfinder: Kingmaker guide includes a full walkthrough of the game’s main campaign, including various side quests, companion quests and strategies.
