In-game description

They say you revel in victory. They say you spend more time erecting monuments to battles past than managing them realm. They say you are a fool.


  • None.

Trigger timing

  • As soon as all requirements are met there is a random chance the dilemma will trigger immediately.


Option 1: We'll see who is the fool!

  • War Fervour Morale.png
    • Turns remaining Campaign turns.png: 5
    • Leadership Morale.png: +5 (all armies)

Your warriors thirst for battle!

Let us make an example of these rumour-mongers and malicious gossips. A punishment is called for.

Option 2: Perhaps a more humble approach?

  • Recruiting Surplus Icon income vmp.png
    • Turns remaining Campaign turns.png: 5
    • Recruitment cost Treasury VC.png: -25% (all armies)

On this rare occasion, there is a glut of ready and willing bodies to join the fray.

While you cannot be dictated to by rumours and whispers, less time boasting and more spent planning future victories might be wiser.
