Alani (Imperator Augustus) Alani (Imperator Augustus) Skills & Traditions

Army Traditions

When a force is first mustered it is named, given a unique emblem and, from that point on, creates its own legacy through its actions in the field. This enables the development of traditions that have positive effects in the same way that skills benefit the characters that have them. Some traditions are unique to certain factions, affecting aspects of both battles and campaigns. An force\'s legacy and traditions forever remain with its emblem, living on long after its original troops have succumbed to their fates. When a new force is raised, you can choose to hand down the legacy of its forebears to your newest recruits.
