Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord – How to Recruit Vassals to Your Kingdom?
How to Recruit Vassals to Your Kingdom
Try to build up your influence as a ruler and start enacting all the laws that can help you first. When you’re ready, you can start recruiting lords to your faction. Don’t worry; you’ll still follow the same mechanics that require a few dialogue checks and a successful trade acceptance.
Remember these tidbits of info:
You cannot promote companions into nobility, so you’ll need to recruit existing lords instead.
If you’re at war with a kingdom and successfully recruit one of their clans, that clan will bring all its own settlements.
Update: Patch e1.0.5 has made it harder to trigger enemy defections if you’ve previously captured settlements from their kingdom. It might still work if you’re at war, but you avoided grabbing their territories before recruiting them.
