  1. Is it possible to pay the mercenaries in render? I mean, if they are going to serve you for a year or two. Or do they only accept silver (treasure)?
  2. Yes it was a mission appointed by her, collaboring with de baroness of Rydychan and Duke Ulfius ^^ I give them the possibility to send the money to Rydychan, but they have to accept the risk of losing it hehehe
  3. I am tempted to make them support themselves there because although Salisbury isn't very far, it would be risky to send the render (or silver) from Salisbury as Rydychan is occupied by the usurpers and they could raid and steal the caravan. I want to create the feeling of a dangerous land to travel. And so, it is £4 to support themselves, and I will let them choose if they want to have a steward or not, having a total of 5 or 6 DF depending on that decision.
  4. The thing is, as Rydychan is at war, I don't think they would be able to use the resources from their manors in Salisbury once they are settled in Rydychan (remember I am using de adventure as written in Lordy Domains). Therefore, they will have to use the income from the manors in Rydychan to support themselves. They have brought mercenary soldiers, so I think they could use them to fulfill the SD obligations (they have lots of knights and foot soldiers), and letting them save 1 libram (for no children) and 1.5 libram for no soldiers (no saving from the wife as they'll have to hire a steward
  5. They hired about 30 mercenary soldiers and 10 mercenary knights... 😅 I was wondering if they don't want to upkeep more, if they could use the money to help them pay for the mercenaries the next year. And I think that when they are in Rydychan they will have to use the manor there to mantain themselves as Salisbury is far away.
  6. Is it possible to build things that your basic manor already have, like the armory and the herds? 🤔 I thought they were listed for replacement just in case the original was destroyed.
  7. Moreover, as they come with their own mercenary soldiers from Salisbury, how would the "servitum debitum" be managed on these manors?
  8. I was asking about the manors given to the PKs in the Rydychan adventure, but adapting them to the BotE system! Also, the PK who hosts the countess (baroness in my campaign) of Rydychan I think would not even have DF, because he would have to upkeep her and her retinue...
  9. Sorry but I don't understand 🙈 (I didn't read the rules for manor in LD, I am trying to adapt this adventure to the BotE/BotW system!). If they are regular manors then thay would be £10 manors... without wife and children then at least the could save £2, so £3 DF???
  10. Do the manors given to the PKs in the campaign described in Lordy Domains give them more discretionary income as they don't have to maintain court and family? 🤔 Well of course they will have to maintain the baroness but...
  11. Is it possible to reduce the price if the father is dead and therefore the knight inherits the armor, weapons and even horses?
  12. That's the thing. It would've been a great deal if she was his first wife, with the heir of his and her being the same person.
  13. But still, I (and my players) love this knid of game ala Game Of Thrones 🤣 You know, William thought he was fortunate to marry a heiress, but... he had a son from the previous marriage and after his death, all the land was again splitted between heirs! Isn't it funny? 😂
  14. Yeah I did that but because you said it could be a good option!! You said this: So... I thought her portion would be 1/3 of her own manor and 1/3 of William's manor. But now I understand seems that she gets 1/3 of William's manor her entire manor until her heir is grown. Then, the uncle would only have 2/3 of William's manor, so only 1 knight of servitum debitum (himself). That means that de HHK she had sex with and now wants to marry is HER own HHK 😂 so... I think in that case only the countess would have something to say, as neither he has to say about Elizabeth, nor her HHK,
  15. He was the HHK of the former PK, and also family of him. Now that the uncle is the guardian, I suppose he is the uncle's HHK... The uncle is the guardian of the part of the landholding that the sons of the PK will inherit when they come to age (2/3 of the landholding), but the widower has her dower (1/3), with her servitum debitum, etc. So he becomes a vassal knight with only that 1/3 of the landholding (the widow's portion), right?
  16. What if she puts herself in trouble having a baby the year after the dead of her husband with a household knight and now both are asking permission to the Countess to marry. The guardian of the inheritance (the uncle) have made the proposition that he will continue mantaining the household knight and the widower only if she resign from her dower's portion, which in that case would return to the "normal" inheritance. Regarding the scandal of having a son out of the marriage, do you think the Countess would agree? I don't know if I explained it well 😅
  17. For feasts less important where you don't use the BotF, what rules do you use?
  18. Hello, I've just acquired the Book of Feasts but I still haven't read it. Do you recommend using it in the game or not? PS: as skype or zoom is not possible for us, the next weeks of quarantine I'm going to run the campaign via forum for my players (I created a forum for that matter). Any suggestions?
  19. Hahahaha! Is "the liege" here refering to the knight? Or does it refer to the kinght's liege? I mean, if the PK is captured, do the peasants also have to pay for the ransom?
  20. Well, as it's written on the book, I thought the universal aids were for lords from their vassals, and therefore, lords without vassals wouldn't have universal aids... but it seems I was wrong. So, do the knights without subenfeoffed lands get these four universal aids from their peasants?
