Reply To: Ditch the Player Character (PC) already!


Yeah I also do not like the commander character. Mercenary companies are really handed down from one man to the next, you don’t really need a figurehead.

It would be cool to have your most skilled, or perhaps brother with the most time serving the company act as your envoy in things like quests or on the world map. You could have it be voluntary so you select who is the current commander and they give a morale bonus to the people around them, but if they die in battle it is a big hit to morale.
