Claims for own vassals
When in campaign mode Reached clan rank 4 and you own a settlement or a castle, you can find your own kingdom. Once you’ve done that, you’re inferior to the other factions in terms of manpower, gold, and property. To change that, you should hire minions as soon as possible. Unfortunately, that is easier said than done.
You have two options for getting vassals: Either you appoint a companion as a vassal, or you creep a vassal from another kingdom. In either case, you need a lot of denarii, fiefs, influence, or all of them.
Make a companion a vassal
If you own a chattel, you can cede it to a companion. This is the – in most cases – cheaper way to get a vassal. The respective companion can either be in your team or lead a team themselves. If, on the other hand, he travels with a caravan or is otherwise busy, you must first free him from this occupation.
When speaking with your chosen companion, proceed as follows:
“I would like to reward you for your services”.
“Indeed true. You shed your blood for me, you deserve your own lordship”.
Now select the mount that your companion will receive.
“I am pleased to present you with the title of Baron and [Name] to lend as collateral. You really deserve it.”
Choose a new clan name for your companion.
If you have followed these steps, your companion will lead his family to his new property and gradually expand his clan. However, this will take a lot of time. Making your companion a vassal is also quite expensive. In addition to the fief, you lose 20,000 denarii and 500 influence.

We don’t know why some clans can only be recruited as mercenaries, even if they have already reached the required clan rank. So you must be prepared to address multiple clans. Favorites potential candidates in the encyclopediaso as not to lose sight of them again.
When speaking with your chosen clan leader, proceed as follows:
“There is something I want to talk to you about.”
“Honestly, what do you think of your liege?”.
If you are interested, you can select the following dialog: “I am the rightful ruler of this land. I want your support.”
This is followed by a mini-game with the attempt at persuasion. If all your arguments can score points, the prince is basically ready to join you.
Having his happiness in the faction, his possessions, his clan rank and his relationship with you Impact on the costs you must contribute to take over the vassal. Several hundred thousand denarii are not uncommon for large clans. In any case, you should be able to offer attachment. These have the highest value.
Once this is done, the clan will join your army along with its members. Unlike mercenaries, a vassal cannot simply flee if the reward does not suit them. After all, he swore allegiance to you.
