Hireling Herldry
« on: November 14, 2010, 01:38:41 PM »
Hello

Have now been playing SR for a few days and most impressed....couple of small issues which I can't find answers for on the post site.
1:  In native mercenaries and other troops in your retinue have their shields automatically display your coat-of-arms, realistic and makes your troops identifiable on the battlefield without having to switch on the annoying green name tags, and I just like having my retinue liveried. This doesn't seem to happen in SR, is there a way to fix this without starting a new game?  
2: Also, I have recreated my native companion team as I have encountered them, but do not seem to be able to locate Katrin, Borca or Matheld...
are they still there in SR, if so no issue I will find them eventually (the search has actually become a sort of story line) if they are not in the module then I will stop looking.
3: Will there eventually be a fix in SR to enable companions to be put into garrison, a good idea might be to be able to garrison small parties of troops or companions at your villages with manor houses?  Particularly when you have an advanced party it is sometimes annoying having to trawl everybody around with you everywhere.

Thank you for the extra work put in on maps really helpful.   Also I have found that if you really want a troop tree then just recruit a few militia and drag them around for a bit until you get the upgrade notification, then do the same with the next tranche of troops, then just memorize or note.

Many thanks

Please ignore the comment about being able to garrison companions in castles.....for some reason this did not seem to work but after leaving and returning to try again it now does....must be me!

As for your other queries;

1 - No, no way of doing that; they don't use the "heraldic" shield items mostly, so without editing a LOT of troop entries that wouldn't be possible.
2 - All the native NPCs are in there, plus maybe 6 or 7 extras.

Hope this helps, thanks.
