Title: Clan loyalty ratings in FM:3085 and FM:3145
Post by: Orwell84 on 12 February 2022, 23:01:08
Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere but if so I couldn't find it.

Loyalty ratings for Clan units in FMs Crusader Clans, Warden Clans and Updates were about their allegiance to the Crusader and Warden causes. Given that both ideologies were no longer burning issues after the Wars of Reaving, what do the loyalty ratings in FM 3085 and 3145 represent?

Are they simply about how aligned the unit is with its Clan's leadership, or does it differ between Clans? e.g. for the Falcons loyalty rating would represent adherence to the Mongol Doctrine, for the Bears it is how 'traditional' or Freeminder a unit is, etc.

Loyalty ratings reflect the perceived loyalty of a unit to central command.
