Overview

Generals are used to command armies and fleets in battle. Their command rating influences the effectiveness with which their army or fleet fights. Forces not led by a general fight at a severe disadvantage, with no-one to rally the troops. A general’s loyalty to his daimyo, if low, can lead him to defect to an enemy clan. The daimyo is also a general, although in his case personal honour replaces loyalty. The daimyo’s sons all become generals when they come of age. Generals can be assigned useful skills and retainers as they gain experience in battle and increase in rank. They can also be assigned commissions to convey additional bonuses.

Actions

  • Attacking with Armies: Determines the general's ability to fight on land.
  • Attacking with Fleets: Determines the general's ability to fight at sea.
