BRCS:Chapter five/Ruling a domain/Adjusting domain attitude


Main Page » Chapter five/Ruling a domain » Chapter five/Ruling a domain/Adjusting domain attitude


|
In general, common-folk tend to be indifferent to their rulers. Common-folk are generally content as long as they feel safe from soldiers, brigands, monsters, and other dangers. If the common-folk are threatened, or if the taxes required to provide for their safety seem unreasonably high, they are likely to become disgruntled. A passionate and fiery orator or a noble hero may win the people's hearts, and inspire them to face great dangers in the face of a greater good. The attitude of the common-folk towards a regent can have a major impact on the success of their domain actions. At the beginning of each domain turn, the attitude of the common-man towards the regent's domain must be adjusted based on the events of the previous domain turn.
Domain attitude is adjusted each season by making a check modified by the bonuses and penalties such as those listed below. Table 5-8: Adjusting domain attitude is then consulted to determine the area's new attitude.
