Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous – Crusade Management Guide – War Council, Decrees and Events
These facets are also part of the crusade management system that you will be able to test during Act III in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Once you interact with the war table, the world map will open. Here, you will see the events and decrees that you can enact. You can also open it while exploring the world map (not just when you’re inside Drezen’s citadel) by clicking the “Crusade” button at the bottom left of your screen. It looks like a castle or a fortress.
What are the events?
The events are basically dilemmas that present themselves 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 the decrees?
Unlike events that are instant decisions, decrees are proclamations that can take several days to complete. One way of looking at them is as “researching” something new, discovering an agenda, or completing certain search steps.
Decrees have categories (that is, military, diplomatic, and logistical). Only one decree of each category can be actively “investigated” at any given time.
Note: One particular decree is called “Xanthir’s Experiments” which is required for the Mythical Path of the Swarm-That-Walks.
What is the court martial?
Your war council is made up of handpicked advisers, whether they be your own teammates, NPCs you’ve met before, or newcomers who have noticed your triumphs. From time to time, your court martial will present you with several key decisions, some of which will affect how specific moments and events will unfold.
In certain parts of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, Your war council advisers can also provide you with extra recruitable units and mercenaries (depending on the region they are from). Another important example here is when Melies arrives on his court. If you have him as your advisor, it will allow you to progress further until you unlock the Mythical Devil’s Path (which is a fusion of the Mythical Paths of the Angel and the Demon).
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is available through Steam.
