Today we’re going over the basics of building a warband for Conan: Savage Legends.
A warband is made up of 1 Legend, 2 Companions, and a group of Minions.
In this example, we are choosing Conan the Barbarian as our Legend to lead our warband. The traits listed on our Legend tell us which Companions we are allowed to add. In this case, Conan may select any two Companions that have at least one of the following traits: Aquilonia, Cimmeria, Warrior.
For this warband, we’re selecting Techotl as our first Companion, who shares the Warrior trait with Conan, and for our second Companion, we’re choosing Pallantides, who shares the Warrior and Aquilonia traits.
By choosing Companions of different Affinities, such as Techiotl and Pallantides, we are diversifying the Tactics we’ll be able to choose from later, giving us more options for battle.
We round out our warband by selecting a Minion group. Minion groups do not have traits which means we want to select a group we feel synergizes extremely well with Conan as our Legend and his two Companions. Because of this we’re selecting the Black Dragons.
As you can see, building a warband is that straightforward.
With our warband built, we move next to equipping our Legend and selecting the tactics we plan to use throughout the game, but this is a topic we’ll cover in our next Breakdown post.
