The new military system regulates many functions that affect to the player and troops.

You can join a faction as mercenary (same than EIF 1.0): for renewable 30 days periods, or as a Lord. You'll able to recruit militia from villages (of your faction) and mercenaries.

note: Only mercenary cavalry is avalaible. No artillery.

Ranks:

Each rank regulates the size of the player's party, and are independent of belonging a faction or not.

If you are a Lord of a faction, having a fief and if your rank is captain or higher, you can form a regiment.

Regiments:
Regiments let you to have access to new features: the artillery, faction cavalry, and recruit profesional volunteer soldiers from villages (the normal troop tree). The sergeant major at your HQ will give you new options: form and name your regiment, give you staff troops and train your new recruits, etc.

Staff: now you can recruit standard bearers; they will encourage your troops in battle and gives regiment troops a litle morale extra daily bonus. Military chaplains will add a bigger morale bonus, but they are weak and can die easily.
