Battling hordes of monsters and constructing buildings aren’t your only objectives in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. You also need to find reliable allies and trustworthy advisors. Moreover, you have to make proclamations that can affect the war effort. Here’s our Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous crusade management guide to help you with your war council, decrees, and events.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous – Crusade management guide — War council, decrees, and events
These facets are also part of the crusade management system which you’ll get to try out during Act III in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Once you interact with the war table, it’ll open the world map. Here, you’ll see the events and decrees that you can enact. You may also open this while exploring the world map (not just when you’re inside Drezen Citadel) by clicking on the “Crusade” button at the lower-left portion of your screen. It looks like a castle or fortress.
What are events?
Events are basically dilemmas that are presented as the Fifth Crusade progresses. Some will have adverse effects, and there are also options that will only appear depending on (a) the presence of certain companions or (b) your chosen Mythic Path.
What are decrees?
Unlike events which are instant decisions, decrees are proclamations that can take several days before they’re completed. One way of looking at them is like “researching” something new, discovering an agenda, or completing certain quest steps.
Decrees have categories (i.e., Military, Diplomacy, Logistics, and Leadership). Only one decree from each category can be actively “researched” at any given point in time.
Note: One particular decree is called “Xanthir’s Experiments” which is required for the Swarm-That-Walks Mythic Path.
What is the war council?
Your war council is comprised of advisors, such as your own companions, NPCs you’ve met before, or newcomers who’ve become aware of your triumphs. From time to time, your war council will present you with several key decisions, some of which will affect how specific moments and events would play out.
At certain parts of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, the advisors in your war council might also provide you with extra recruitable units and mercenaries (depending on the region where they’re from). Another important example here is when Melies or Early Sunset arrives at your court. The former arrives if you chose the Aeon Mythic Path and the latter if you picked the Azata Mythic Path. Your decisions might help you unlock the Devil Mythic Path later in the game.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is available via Steam.
