Remake the clan Tier system

I very much dislike the current clan tier system, I understand why it is there, but it feels barebones and frankly un-immersive, and ruins the game for me, I very much doubt this suggestion will be taken in but I do hope some kind Modder out there reads it and tries to implement it or something similar to it, what I have given below are my suggestions and probably not balanced but I hope to get the core idea through by them.



Tier 1 (Well-known merchant/mercenary leader/champion) requirement 50 personal renown ,20 men, 3,000 gold (gold won’t be deducted)

-You are not a noble yet, but more like a well know person (be it a mercenary, merchant or warrior), but

-can join as a mercenary to any kingdom

-gives party size bonus to clan parties by 15

Tier 2 (baron) 150 renown 50 men, 5,000 gold (gold won’t be deducted)

-can be achieved by joining a kingdom by offer/request of vassalage (will be given free stuff by the king like few elite soldiers, armour and weapons)

-can be achieved by taking over a settlement as well, but there is no kingdom you are best a rebel baron upstart, no clan or minor faction can join you

-officially a noble from now on (guards don’t take cash for entering noble hall unless you are a rebel baron)

- lets you raise an additional party

- gives party size bonus to clan parties by 20

Tier 3 (viscount) 350 renown 150 men,1 fief,250 influence (deducted),10,000 gold (1000 deducted)

-if you are not part of a kingdom additional 250 influence is required to upgrade to viscount, after earning the title you can sue for peace with kingdoms around you, still cannot attract lords to your domain, but can enter lord’s hall without paying gold.

-can raise a military retinue of 50 men (your culture specific mix troops of tier 3 and above with 20% noble troops) once every 75 days, costs 75 influence 2500 gold 25 renown in your capital,

Tier 6(king) 3000 renown, 8 shops, 4 fiefs owned ,1250 influence(deducted) 250,000 gold (25,000 deducted)

- you must be the ruling clan if you have joined a kingdom then you must depose the current ruling clan.

Notes:

Men: – all the available troops under the clan command it includes party troops, caravan troops, garrison troops.

Influence can be gained – passively from the fiefs you hold, the workshops and caravans,

and actively by sending gifts to other clans, tournament, completing quest and the battles you win, everything gives you influence,(influence feels its underrated and not used well).

-Instead of auto upgrading to next clan tier, you have to manually do it and it will take place in the kingdoms capital in the lords hall. Except tier one that can be done through a tavern menu.(if possible a feast or celebration or even enthronement scene depending on the tier)

-Increased revenue is calculated on the total income of the day and added upon it.eg: income for the day is 1000 gold and you are tier 5 clan then the income you get is 1000 +100 = 1100 gold.

-I know there are no tier 7 8 9 troops I am trying to explain how they should feel.

-you can have more fiefs men etc , what is given above is the minimum you should have to move up the clan tier ladder. this is player only also only player clan can become tier 7, for non player clan i think it would be better to keep the old system.

-in case you are founding your own kingdom you can only recruit clans that are lower than your clan tier into your kingdom.

Other changes:

Can adopt up to 3 members into family.

An option to choose and designate an heir if and when your created character dies (for reference shogun 2 clan view)

Every landed clan has a capital and will not trade/sell that away it can be a castle or town and the ruling clans capital is the capital of the kingdom.

The player first fief becomes their capital and it can be moved around just like warband.

remove shop limits and make it one per city like warband and remove companion limits as well.

Random suggestion:

Since you can hope to become emperor in late game and you have to take over around half the map it would make it exciting that

once you proclaim yourself as emperor and have taken around 60 % of fiefs on the map then all the remaining kingdoms stop their wars with each other and have temporary ceasefire between them and have a giant all out war against you ,and this united war cannot be stopped until you have less 50 % of the fiefs on the map.
