Event Commander Activity Neutral.png Dilemmas are instant lore-based choice-focused events and, for the most part, random in nature which guide the campaign by granting the player a variety of Unit effect positive.pngUnit effect both.pngUnit effect negative.png effects.

Highlights include:

  • Most have trigger requirements, for example, playing a particular race, research a particular Technology positive.png technology or having a lord with high Icon fealty high.png loyalty;
  • Most are actually random: as long as the requirements are met, there is a random chance to trigger;
  • Most offer Unit effect positive.png bonuses, some offer bonuses in exchange for one or more penalties (Unit effect both.png mixed effects), and a few force a Unit effect negative.png lesser than two evils principle;
  • Bonuses and penalties can beTurns.pngtemporary or permanent, including Equipment Items Weapon Small.png item 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;
  • Most are instant and unskippable and a few can be delayed (revisited later);
  • All have between two to four options;
  • All have associated lore.
