edited March 2022 in General Discussion

My GM Mate has another question, his question is how does he stop Erinns 1,296 strong Private Army being a type of  win button that's both instant and guaranteed?

Erinns the 1 that's inherited A Criminal Dynasty that because the campaigns lasted for 13.74 in-game years is 1,214.22 years old and  taking everything into account he's raking in almost 743,600 Gold a year

Saying that though every year since the start of the campaign Erinn has invested roughly 94.2% of what he earns in various money making schemes and roughly 38.94% of his yearly earnings comes from those investments

Almost all of that goes on A 1,296 strong Private Army whose composition is 1 1,000 Strong Regiment, 2 100 Strong Companies, 2 39 Strong Platoon and 2 9 Strong Squad's

Here's a selection of the most powerful of Erinns Followers, none of them could definitely beat Erinn in a fair fight, theirs 3 that would have a chance but only if they got very lucky and Erinn got very unlucky, was distracted, was tired and was having a off day but if they were fighting for 1 or more of training, exercise, pleasure or practice then well over then half of them could give Erinn A Good work

    What about character assassination?  Turn the army against Erinn by spreading rumors, or tricking Erinn into actually doing something that some majority of the army would find distasteful.  Maybe showing that Erinn somehow sold them out, or sent them to a battle that he knew they would die in for an unimportant gain/reason.
