So I just took my second castle, but have no vassals to give it to. Experimenting with trying to get one, I can't recruit a lord I think because i am war against two countries. So I messed around with giving fiefs to my companions, and was surprised to see that some say they will train special or get special units for me. Does this actually happen? This is a deciding factor for me, because it would be cool to see my companions running around the map in my name, but I would much rather have them with me for their reuse-ability in battle and training of units. Though if they have the unique ability to get me special units I can do without them, especially because I need lords. I am currently running the gambit of having every single companion, and using some for my party skills. Any other advice for my situation would be appreciated.
