Attributes

Each character has four attributes, each with their own value. These attributes determine how well characters perform as the Leader.png ruler and when appointed to Position positions and can also affect various events triggers and outcomes, with higher attributes almost always better. Each attribute has a base value that is mostly accumulated over the course of a character's childhood, though it can still change during adulthood through various events and mission tasks, and then are modified by a character's traits and character modifiers.

Other effectsEdit

ResearchersEdit

The effectiveness of   researchers is determined by their attribute level in the field they are assigned to. Each corresponding attribute point that the researcher has will give a   +10% research speed to progress in that field of advances, which can have a very significant effect on how quickly a nation's technology level advances.

Government OfficesEdit

Each   government office is associated with a particular attribute, and the effectiveness of a character in that office depends largely on their skill in that attribute. Unlike other positions, this effectiveness is multiplied first by the character's   statesmanship level, which means that a character with lower attributes but high   can still outperform, at least in the short term, a character with higher attributes but lower   statesmanship.

Tribal successionEdit

Succession in a tribal country is determined by the attributes of the other   clan chiefs when a ruler dies or is deposed. Each attribute has the following weight when determining a clan chief's succession score:

  •   Martial:   +2 succession support per point
  •   Finesse:   +1 succession support per point
  •   Charisma:   +1.5 succession support per point
  •   Zeal:   +1 succession support per point
