Clan and Party

It is now possible for players to promote companions into nobles with their own clan. In order to use this feature, the player must:

Be the leader of a kingdom.

Have at least one fief.

Have an active companion that is not a family member.

Have 20.000 Denars and 500 Influence ready to spend for the promotion.

Once the conditions are met the player can initiate the dialogue with a companion about their promotion. The player will grant the companion one of their fiefs and will be able to name their clan. The newly created clan will be a tier 2 clan and receive a 50 relation bonus with the player’s clan.

Removed influence gain from donating troops to a clan member's party.


Factions will no longer create armies if they are not at war.

Settlement Actions (Town, Village, Castle and Hideout)

Fixed a bug that prevented prisoners from being donated to towns.

Quests & Issues

Fixed an issue that allowed hostile settlements to be selected for the "Deliver the Herd" quest.

Conversations & Encounters

Fixed an incorrect dialogue option that would appear after a successful barter with bandits.

Fixed a bug that caused extra candidates to appear in marriage barters.

Reduced the weight of 'Fringed Cloak' to 0.5 from 4.0.

Removed the non-civilian weapon 'Heavy Flanged Mace' from Khuzait noble civilian equipment sets.

'Legionary Studded Harness' now provides 4 arm and 7 body armour (previously 4 arm and 6 body armour).

'Leopard Pelt' now provides 4 Body armour (previously 7 body armour).

Switched 'Reinforced Chainmail Barding' from Sturgia to Vlandia item pool (meaning it is now available in settlements with the Vlandian culture).

'Vlandian Militia Archer' and 'Vlandian Militia Veteran Archer' have been renamed to 'Vlandian Militia Crossbowman' and 'Vlandian Militia Veteran Crossbowman' respectively.

'Conspiracy Raider' is no longer shown as upgradeable to 'Khuzait Lancers' in the encyclopaedia.

Ballista Improvements:

Improved AI usage.

Minor animation tweaks.

Corrected the ballista bolt's centre of mass.

Attacks now take into account the relative movement speed between the attacker and the target when deciding if an attack will bounce or not.

A system that approximates local superiority has now been implemented.

This helps AI agents to distinguish a nearby lone enemy that they can kill from a group of enemies. They can then choose to fight or move towards their assigned tactical position in hopes of better odds.

A minor random element was also introduced that slightly influences decision scores.

Fixed a bug that prevented units from using shields while being shot at by archers.
