Note: Last advisor, Janusk, was eaten by a Water Drake while on a scouting mission down south. His performance was, all across the board, rated as unsatisfactory. Janusk did not have satisfactory knowledge of farming or how it functions, he was not knowledgeable in city construction, he was not properly informed on combat tactics, and he was rated below average in giving advice in a timely manner.

He cared more for money and renown then he did the job and serving the Kingdom. DON'T LET THIS BE YOU!

 


 

I thought that, due to the default advisor's lack of experience, knowledge, and overall lack of advice this would be kinda funny. There are so many threads about these things that Janusk NEEDS to be fired. He's obviously just not cut out for the job and has been constantly failing in his job reviews.

It's time for leadership! It's time to replace Janusk!

Hopefully, one day, we'll have better advisors in our Kingdoms. Eh?

Why does the Hiergamenon entry say "Janusk" at the top, but "Eldmyre" in the description?

INTERESTING FACT! Did you know all advisors are named Janusk?

It randomly selects someone to "play the role" of Janusk. They are usually picked from merchants but sometimes other classes. Eldmyre was probably his maiden name before he joined the Kingdom as High Councilor (AKA Advisor) to the Sovereign. Seems that all advisors are named Janusk... for some reason.

This is one of the many reasons why he failed his performance review.

Mine wasn't eaten by a water drake. Mine was eaten by a spider. My poor sovereign mourned his loss deeply and never remarried. Fortunately, they had one offspring prior to his death because apparently, you can't remarry!!

Wait? You married your advisor. That's not very advisable. How did you maintain professionalism in the workplace? How did you define the workplace? So many questions, I smell liability.

In one of my games this Janusk guy actually attacked my sovereign...

Why do you think he found death waiting for him in a spider den? Liability threats against the sovereign meet with untimely ends.

I'm hoping that changes at some point, a random name for the adviser would be nice. I've played a few games for a couple hundred or more turns each, and I've noticed all of them had the same name. What would be rather funny, is just imagine if the adviser's sex was random too. Your King may have relations with the tutorial adviser hahahaha... have little adviser children too. I can just see all the information pop-ups now, the more kids they have the more information pop-ups you get.

Looks like Janusk has been found, we're going to see how he works out on an interum basis.

Quoting Frogboy,
* AI *
+ AI manages ships better
+ AI Sovereign’s spouse will seek the safety of a friendly settlement rather than travel with their spouse
+ AI more effective in establishing strong armies prior to going on the offensive
+ AI better at determining whether it is in their best interests to declare war
+ AI will notify player of tiles they should be using and how to use them.
+ Janusk provides a lot more useful information
+ AI difficulty levels tweaked for more challenge at higher levels
+ AI tweaks to XML

Horray!
