Characters

Ambitions are dreams and needs that any character in the game tries to realize into reality. You can have and choose your own ambition, and when it is satisfied, you receive a reward. Other characters in your court or demesne will have their own ambitions, and when you help them acheive it, you will be rewarded with a positive opinion towards you. It also gives a bonus to certain stats (intrigue, learning etc...) Therefore it is particularly advantageous to fulfill the needs of your heir, since you expect to play your heir you want to build up their stats. It is a good practice to check what your council or family members ambitions are, and try to realize them.

Following is a list of ambitions; what is required for ambition to be available, and what reward is given when ambition is fulfilled.

T - stands for time in months during which the positive effects of opinion last.
