Imperial leadership attributes


Recommended Posts

I love the Seat of Power bonus - a great mechanism to make an Imperial side decide between diplomacy and leadership. However, I was thinking of tweaking it. As I assume that the 50% bonus is hardcoded, that means playing around with the command characters' leadership.


The average command character on either side will have 80+20. This means that an average Rebel commander will be 80-100, whilst an Imperial will be 120-150 with the Seat of Power.


I like to think of the Imperial structure as being very like the Nazi's. So if Rommel wants to move those panzers in Normandy to counter D-Day, you'd better hope that Hitler is awake :) . Given this, I'd like to see the Imperials as still better if the Emperor is in place, but on average worse if he's not. So I was thinking of changing their leadership to 70+10. The reduction in the variance from normal also more accurately reflects my perception of the difference between a regimented professional army and an irregular rebel one.


So that gives the Imperials an average of 75 or 112.5 vs. the rebel average of 90.


Is this going to kick up some problems that I haven't thought about? To be fair to my professional vs. irregular perception, would it be fairer to also rejig the rebel's leadership to something like 60+50, which lowers their average a bit to 85 but allows their less formal command structure to produce some real gems (and some real dogs :) )?


EDITED to cover up my stupidity :) . It's a 50% bonus for SoP, not 50 points.
