Joining a Kingdom in Bannerlord
There are two ways you can join a kingdom in Bannerlord:
- As a mercenary
- As a vassal
Joining a kingdom as a mercenary is a temporary choice that will allow you to test the waters and get to know the faction’s lords and ladies.
You should usually aspire to become a vassal for the kingdom you want to join, but turning into a vassal requires a higher clan tier.
If you want to join in as a vassal, you should first increase your clan tier and reach the required tier to become a lord.
So, the best way you can join a kingdom in Bannerlord would be to:
- Gather enough Renown to reach Clan Tier 1 or 2.
- Approach either a lord of the kingdom (to become a mercenary) or the faction leader (to become a vassal).
- Ask them if you could work for them or serve them as a vassal.
Once you manage to join the kingdom you like, there are many things you can do that you couldn’t do before.
Players that are part of a kingdom can receive fiefs through conquest, can vote on and change the policies of the faction, and even destroy the kingdom with a bit of political maneuvering.
For most of the game, you will be part of a kingdom, so get used to this feeling and prepare for the day you will take over as the king.
That’s everything you need to know about how to join a kingdom in Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord!
