Highlights include:

  • Most have trigger requirements, for example, playing a particular race, research a particular technology Technology positive.png or having a lord with high loyalty Icon fealty high.png;
  • Most are actually random: as long as the requirements are met, there is a random chance to trigger;
  • Most offer bonuses Unit effect positive.png, some offer bonuses in exchange for one or more penalties (mixed effects) Unit effect both.png, and a few force a lesser than two evils principle Unit effect negative.png;
  • Bonuses and penalties can be temporaryCampaign turns.pngor permanent, including item Equipment Items Weapon Small.png rewards;
  • Bonuses and penalties can focus on particular characters and armies, or local and factionwide;
  • There are no "right" options as each may support a different strategy, so it is up to the player to weigh the pros and cons;
