Introduction

There are a few variations and outcomes that need to be understood before you can effectively use this guide.

1. Most important variation is whether in previous game you participated in the Secret Mission (SM) or Second Battle of Kharangia (2K). These two will greatly impact what is achievable in the commission. The commission consists of 3 factions (schools), Cavalry led by Palliser, Infantry led by Hawthrowe, and Wreck led by Castermaine, each with their own priorities.

2. Then thing to note is that there are 4 Votes for the commission which will determine its outcome.

  • First Vote is in Chapter 4A. In this vote if you are on SM path, Castermaine’s faction (Wreck) will always win.
  • Second Vote is in Chapter 5A. This vote is important as it will determine the training recommendation which is stored separately than the final report of the Commission. In this either Palliser’s faction will win, which will add the recommendation of Junior Officers receiving training before they get their commission Or Hawthrowe’s faction will win, which will add recommendation of training Regimental Colonel’s and their staff Or Castermaine can win which will result in neither recommendation.
  • Third Vote is in Chapter 7. This vote will determine the scope of the report. This can have 3 outcomes.
    • Commission carries on without any interference.
    • Commission curtails its purview and will make limited recommendations.
    • Commission is suspended.
  • Fourth Vote is in Chapter 8. This vote will determine whether commission will make a recommendation on Garing’s new gun. This has 5 outcomes.
    • Commission recommends full and immediate adoption.
    • Commission recommends limited adoption for testing purpose.
    • Commission recommends trial of guns to be held for evaluation.
    • Commission recommends possibility of future trials.
    • Commission recommends that no new weapons be adopted.

3. Final report will have 6 major variations which will affect the overall recommendations, now these variations can be divided into 2 categories based on Vote 3 outcome.

      • Permanent Skirmishers Unit.

  1. I’m not sure that the guns really has an impact on the other stuff. I argued for guns, but voted for trials, and then got trials with a cavalry dominant position. Which doesn’t appear to be on your list.

  2. So is the only way to join the commission to go to Aetoria in year 1 or can you manage your estate first and then go to Aetoria in one of the later years and still join the commission?

  3. Probably should add a foreword on how to actually get on the commission. I thought I had a lot of Royal Rep but failed to gain a seat.

    • Depends on what you are going for. None of the outcomes author have listed for SM path need to skip the first meeting.
