Yeah charm is somehow not really a skill atm. I would also like to see some effect on notables relation but it seems that all quests are hardcapped with the relation bonus. Have to look into the code if this really is the case.Thank you for the clarification. I appreciate that.
The old Warband system of lord recruitment was hit or miss, but the current setup seems like a big step down in terms of roleplaying and player utility. Abstracting the complex politics of lord friendship/rivalry and culture and personalities into a straight cash transaction is pretty underwhelming, especially with higher denar amounts. I'm not sure about the current release, but I've absolutely ragequit earlier versions after spending 2M denars recruiting a clan and then watching them flip sides one week of game-time later.
As an RPG nerd, seeing no visible effect of having high charm or lord relation or personality score is pretty frustrating in general.
