Choosing the option that "We pay by veterancy and skill" will result in the Noble having a slightly lower mood. Choosing, "How about we lower your pay instead?" will result in the Noble taking a major mood decrease (such as from 'Content' to 'Angry'), lowering is pay, and potentially giving him the 'Greedy' triat. Note that 'Angry' Battle Brothers have a tendency to desert the company...|

While you are going through maps, the historian approaches you and gives you a tome or book for you to read, not telling you what it is. Curiosity prompting, you open the book to find the historian has recorded the history of the company from hearing the tales of the men at the campfire. Such is the account that it brings tears.

Events by TraitEdit
These events can randomly happen on the global map.
Events by Late Game crisisEdit
These events can happen in a late game crises anywhere on the world map.

During the war between noble houses, you will be given the opportunity to swap sides to another noble house (Trigger: Privateering mission?) in exchange for one random unique weapon. Accepting the bribe brings the relationship of your new house to neutral, and your old house to zero. Declining brings no effects, and may be offered again. If you accept, some time after the war ends (<50 days, needs confirming) an event will occur (Trigger: after a battle?) where the house you betrayed sends a large army led by a knight to attack you. Assuming that you win, your new relationship with that house will be zero (Retreating from battle avoids penalty? Untested).
These events can randomly happen on the global map, without any background or trait requirement.

You can either reveal the runaways' position for money or mislead the militiamen out of the way, and one of the runaways may ask to join your company. (background: refugee, needs to verify if it's always the case, also it should happen on the road only as the road is mentioned in the event's text, but that needs to be checked too)

Companions, cultists, flagellants, monks and wildmen are not affected by not giving a raise.
