Followers

Followers are Smaller Houses, Mercenary Bands, Pirate Groups, even Town Militia, or groups of Hedge Knights. Any group that could provide you with a steady supply of men.

Followers are presumed to be Infantry or Cavalry; Peasants occur when your reserves are over extended, and you don’t have time to train fresh soldiers.

Exactly how many followers each dot provides is likely to change over the course of the campaign, but at the start-
1) Each Dot represents a group of people loyal to you. Typically a Minor House.
2) A certain number of men
3) You may select 1 Trait for each group of soldiers, showing their unique methods of fighting. By taking flaw traits, you may gain additional positive traits.

1X= 25 Men
2X= 75 Men
3X= 150 Men
4X= 300 Men
5X= 750 Men
