Quoting seanw3, reply 1Would be nice to see this fixed for 1.01. Nice catch!
I think it's a must for 1.01. Still it's hard to believe. Maybe Lord Markin killed some bandits, and had extra gildar ?
Well it was the same thing for all the sovereigns. They all had 150+ gildar and had recruited their first champion. Relias should have been the only one with 150+ gildar.
It may be a result of the rounding error that Frogboy said was letting the AI cheat in so many ways in challenging. Some of them are listed in this post (note some of the theories were not supported at all by the experiment).
