Back story: The unlikely heir, Laurence came to power when his two older brothers died on campaign with their father. He was redundant and was supposed to be sent to the monastery to prevent him giving problems to his older brothers family's. He made himself indispensable in administrative affairs and court, to circumvent the problem temporarily.

When word that his his father and brothers died, he was quick to seize control and draw up treaties and alliances to preserve the family holdings. He took advantage of all contacts he was able to create and to allocated resources efficiently to allow his family to weather this hardship. His efforts were fruitful, his overlords were merciful and his father's vassals were grateful but were reluctant to renew their oaths.

An unskilled commander himself, he took his father's retired sergeant Theodore (Ted Mitten) and bade him to bring the family's muster back to full force. The old man was reluctant, half blind and depressed as he lost his own sons with his young lords' father. The man was unmovable. Laurence's vassals eventually neglected their oaths and correspondence ceased.

Laurence, concerned that the vassals might move against him, summoned his father's yeomen. He then proceeded to lock them in his halls and attempted to make them see him as the undisputed heir of his father. Laurence met with each leader and negotiated with them for better terms on their jurisdictions, rights and duties. He was overwhelmed but stubbornly clung on. When a majority of disaffected yeomen were planning break out by force, Theodore stepped in and forced them to listen to him. The senior man-at-arms still commanded a presence if he willed it, and helped settle the disputes quickly.

When they settled all matters, the yeomen pleased with their new privileges and rights found their celebration cut short when Lord Darryl Gaiser was marching to them to ask Laurence to step down.

The yeomen were frustrated at the news, after all the time spent negotiating they were going to lose their hard won freedoms to a new lord. Theodore just laughed at the news. He exclaimed, out loud, to everyone, nothing yet is lost. He points out Laurence was still Lord and if they fought for him, they can keep their prized rights.

It was easy to see there was no confidence in the Laurence's command. No one was ready to fight along side a lordling unbloodied by war. The silence filled the great hall, broken by the sounds uneasiness.

Theodore... then smiled...
... and knelt before his young lord...

Fix the pacifism roll,
allow for other disciplines
Roll for retainers and their abilities.
More variety to Vassal Forces
