Tech dlc07 brt chivalry beastmen 1.png Safer Woods Decree
“The King decrees that from this day forth, the forests of Bretonnia be made safe from the Beastmen’s Ruinous bane.”
  • Diplomatic relations: -100 with Beastmen Warherds
  • Missile damage: +10% when fighting against Beastmen Warherds
  • Leadership: +5 when fighting against Beastmen Warherds
  • Chivalry: +2 for every victory against Beastmen Warherds


As the sacred woodland of Athel Loren is outside Bretonnia’s official boundaries, there are no Wood Elves living within its forests. Unfortunately, this means that Beastmen, the hideous Children of Chaos, infest the glades and copses with their fell rituals and darker appetites. Ever since the Great Battles of Bretonnian history, when the dreaded brayherds swept across the land in a stampede of destruction, joining with the foul, rampaging Greenskins to compound the misery of the local people. Some say that they may even exist in far greater numbers than previously thought, but no one is really prepared to venture into the woods to find out!
Tech dlc07 brt chivalry chaos 1.png Ruinous Powers Decree
The King decrees that the scourge of Chaos be stopped at all costs and the land delivered to safety.
  • Diplomatic relations: -100 with Chaos
  • Chivalry: +2 for every victory against Chaos
  • Attrition: -50% casualties suffered from Chaos territory attrition
  • Leadership aura size: +50% when fighting against Chaos
  • Bonus vs. Large: +5 when fighting against Chaos


In Bretonnia from time to time, and with increasing regularity as the forces of Chaos strengthen their nefarious hold on the mortal world, formerly loyal and courageous Dukes are tempted by promises of power and favour from the Ruinous Powers. No one, not even the brave and true Grail Knights, is immune from the outstretched tentacles of eternal madness to which such dark pacts give purchase. Yet the Lady of the Lake, through her servants the Fay Enchantress and courageous King Louen Leoncoeur, is ever-vigilant – ready to act in defence of Bretonnia wherever and whenever the Chaos Gods’ creeping, insidious influence is detected.
Tech dlc07 brt chivalry greenskins 1.png Green Tide Decree
“The King decrees that the Greenskin blight be utterly annihilated wherever, whenever, and however possible!"
  • Diplomatic relations: -50 with Greenskin Tribes
  • Immunity to Barren Wasteland attrition
  • Chivalry: +2 for every victory against Greenskin Tribes
  • Double experience gain for units when fighting against Greenskin Tribes


Greenskins are central to the Bretonnian story, having been defeated by the Grail Companions in large numbers during the Great Battles. However, many years have passed since they have dared to raid in large groups away from their mountain strongholds, and some now fear they are gathering strength to move against Bretonnia once again. Attacks on border villages by small Warbands are not uncommon these days, with the farming and mining communities on the fringes especially vulnerable in Winter when cut off from the rest of Bretonnia. When the snow melts in Spring, at least one village has been reduced to rubble, its population dead or missing, and the stench of dung piles – the calling card of these foul, green interlopers – thick in the air.

  • Weapon strength: +10% when fighting against Greenskin Tribes
  • Leadership: +10 during subterranean intercept battles

Tech dlc07 brt chivalry norsca 1.png Winter Woes Decree
“The King decrees that Bretonnians must double their efforts to defend the Kingdom against the barbaric forces of the North.”
  • Immunity to Snow attrition
  • Chivalry: +2 for every victory against Norscan Tribes
  • Double experience gain for units when fighting against Norscan Tribes
  • Diplomatic relations: -50 with Norscan Tribes


The Northmen – the barbarian tribes allied to the Gods of Chaos – are ancient enemies of Bretonnia. During the Tenth Great Battle, Gilles le Breton and his Grail Companions came to the relief of the great port-city of L’Anguille, which was under attack from forces led by the formidable warrior-Lord Svengar of the Skaelings. The Companion Lord Marcus duelled with the giant Norscan warrior, defeating him and triggering a full-scale retreat of the Norse attackers, who hurriedly turned their ships around and sailed away northwards once more. A devastating victory was won that day, but nevertheless the ports of Bretonnia cast their eyes out to the ocean in constant vigilance even now.

Tech dlc07 brt chivalry vampires 1.png Death's Grip Decree
The King decrees that the threat of Unliving incursions be foremost in the collective mind of the Kingdom.
  • Diplomatic relations: -50 with Undead
  • Leadership: +10 when fighting against Undead
  • Attrition: -25% casualties suffered from Vampire Counts territory attrition
  • Chivalry: +2 for every victory against Undead


Being a superstitious lot, Bretonnians are not ones to take the threat of incursions by the Undead lightly. The idea of the dead walking is particularly abhorrent to them and a constant source of fear. Their history, especially that of the Great Battles, contains several tales of the Companions facing off against Necromancers and their reanimated hordes. More recently, Bretonnia seems to suffer more frequently from unnatural things defying nature and rising from their tombs at the bidding of Dark Magicians and Vampire Counts. This is especially true upriver from the cursed land of Mousillon, where waterlogged Undead crawl their way upstream, occasionally jumping out of the water and attacking unlucky passers-by!
Tech dlc07 brt chivalry wood elves 1.png Forests' Edge Decree
The King decrees that the malevolent forces of Athel Loren must be kept at bay.
  • Chivalry: +2 for every victory against Wood Elves
  • Leadership: +8 when fighting against Wood Elves
  • Missile resistance: +10% when fighting against Wood Elves
  • Diplomatic relations: -50 with Wood Elf Realms


It is never wise to go against the Fey Folk of the forest, for they have long memories and their vengeance – for even the most trivial of slights – is total. In times past, men have exploited the forests, harvesting the trees for their selfish ends and have felt the Wood Elves’ wrath in return. As a result, the Bretonnians mostly stay away from Elven lands these days, so as not to tempt fate. For their part, the Elves do not consider the lives of ‘mayflies’ to be worth their time, so generally keep themselves to themselves where possible. There have, however, been instances of co-operation between the two races – for the good of the trees, of course. The Fourth Great Battle saw a horde of filthy, ravening Greenskins putting the forest to the flame and so the noble, courageous Grail Companions came to their aid, stopping the disgusting green tide dead in its tracks.
Tech dlc07 brt economy start.png Economic Investment
Banish uncertainty: invest in the Kingdom's future.
  • Growth: +4
  • Income from Settlements: +3%
Bretonnian society looks down on progress, for such things may lead to ‘undesirable’ changes to the balance of power. This makes for a haphazard economy which does not stockpile goods when it would perhaps be sensible to do so. Generally, trade is what keeps the Kingdom going, with nobles dealing with the merchant class when necessary in order to obtain the goods they need and trading wine and textiles in return. Of course, the village communities who do all of the actual production work do not benefit from this – diffusion of wealth being an alien concept in such a staunchly feudal society. Those landowners whose local industries may be suffering simply drive their peasants harder until the profits made are high enough to keep them in the manner to which they are accustomed – as is their noble birthright of course.
Tech dlc07 brt economy farm 1.png Improved Agricultural Tools
No longer can a bad workman blame his tools…
  • Income from Farms: +2%
The tools and agricultural techniques used by Bretonnian peasants are considered by many to be rather backwards compared to those used by the other nations of men. Occasionally, cost-effective solutions developed by their counterparts in the Empire are adopted, while others less so. The main problem is that good tools are hard to find in Bretonnia and hence, are much more expensive. This means that less affluent Bretonnian nobles will not often see good reason to provide their peasant workers with better equipment if it can be avoided - to them, there is simply no reason to make a peasant’s job easier at a greater cost to themselves.
Tech dlc07 brt economy farm 2.png Wider Ploughs
The wider the plough, the higher the yield, in less time.
  • Income from Farms: +2%
  • Construction cost: -5% for Infrastructure buildings
Ploughs are important to any agriculturally-focused economy, such as Bretonnia. Along with the pitchfork, they are a staple tool of the peasants who toil the fields, making the work slightly less back-breaking than would otherwise be the case, but not enough to make their miserable lives easier by any real degree. Increasing plough sizes does mean they spend less hours actually ploughing, freeing them up to do some other form of crippling manual labour for their noble masters.
Tech dlc07 brt economy farm 3.png Irrigation Ditches
Irrigation ensures that the fields are watered and the people fed, no matter the season.
  • Income from Farms: +3%
  • Upkeep: -5% for infantry units
The ability of the Knightly class to effectively defend Bretonnia from harm rests with the peasants, who work the land to provide their nobles with the sustenance needed to fight wars in their name. The sheer amount of arable land in the region means that the waterways feeding the crops must work efficiently, lest the yields produced not be high enough. By the digging irrigation ditches, water can be directed to man-made watering holes around the foothills, where the pastoral farmers graze their animals, and to the rolling fields where maize and other crops are grown for their masters’ tables. The peasants themselves, however, rarely benefit from the abundance of high quality meat and fresh vegetables produced, and must content themselves with the gruel and scraps that are the lot of their pathetic, near-worthless lives.
Tech dlc07 brt economy farm 4.png Water Pumps
The less we depend on the elements, the greater our control over our food supplies.
  • Each of your regions can sustain an extra peasant unit
  • Income from Farms: +3%
Although water pumping technology could be used to bring fresh water to the Bretonnian peasants, instead of the stagnant well water they are forced to drink, that is not considered important by the nobles whose land they work. As far as they are concerned, increasing produce yields is far more important than the needs of their workers, and so they are forbidden from using them for their own purposes. When more crops are grown than are needed to sustain the population, the excess can be used to trade with merchants for those essential luxuries – wine, for instance. Any other considerations, such as the welfare of the peasant population, are irrelevant.
Tech dlc07 brt economy industry start.png Improved Construction
Improve the process and the results look after themselves.
  • Construction cost: -2% for all buildings
  • Construction time: -1 for Province Capital/Settlement buildings
As prolific builders of castles, improved stone masonry techniques and construction methods appeal to even the aggressively-feudalist Bretonnians. Unlike other areas of technological advancement, Bretonnian nobles are very keen on anything that speeds the process of building and maintaining the castles and strongholds from which their lands are defended from invaders. As a result, many improved construction methods have come along quickly and naturally out of necessity. It is important to remember, however, that the nobles’ preferred solution – in any situation – is always to throw more peasants at a problem until it goes away!
Tech dlc07 brt economy industry 1.png Bigger Bobbins
Bigger bobbins are better bobbins. It is known.
  • Income from Industry: +10%
Weaving cloth by hand is no easy task, as any clothiers will tell you. Unlike their neighbours in the technologically-burgeoning Empire, Bretonnians must do without the new-fangled machinery that saves labour and increases production. Such things might give the peasantry ideas, and are therefore eschewed by the Kingdom’s noble, ruling class. Large-scale fabric production is a necessary evil, however, and so the work must be undertaken by hand or with the simplest, hand-driven looms. One effective way of keeping output high enough to meet demand is to increase the size of the spools used; anything further advanced might just trigger an industrial revolution – something no Bretonnian ruler wants to see!
Tech dlc07 brt economy industry 2.png Improved Loom Technology
The fruit of such a loom is industry in abundance.
  • Income from Industry: +5%
  • Local recruitment capacity: +1
Although the majority of Bretonnian weavers use simple wooden hand-looms, the pressures of increased production quotas have caused many breakages and repairs. Although loathed to do so, nobles have taken advantage of the importation of raw materials into Bretonnia – metals from Dwarf traders, for instance – to reinforce existing equipment or build new, more robust machinery from metal that will not break so easily.
Tech dlc07 brt economy industry 3.png Weaving Apprenticeships
Time spent schooling the workers pays dividends later.
  • Research rate: +5%
  • Income from Industry: +5%
In Bretonnia, the life of anyone outside the ruling class is tough. In keeping with natural order, the nobles take the vast majority of goods produced – and the profits therein – from the peasants who live on their land and do all the physical work. Although their skills are never recognised, weavers and other cloth workers are essential to Bretonnian industry, as the fruits of their labour directly bring income into the Kingdom via trade with the travelling merchants that constantly move through the land. Naturally, the nobles do not approve of any activities that take peasants away from their toil, but even they have to admit that passing on knowledge to the next generation is useful – so there is someone to take over when a peasant craftsman eventually drops, exhausted, for the final time.
Tech dlc07 brt economy industry 4.png Seamstresses
For some, appearances are everything - regardless of the truth of the matter.
  • Income from Industry: +10%
  • Recruitment cost: -10%
Clothiers and seamstresses play an important role in Bretonnia, operating in a society which cares much about its image. For Bretonnians, chivalric virtues are not only expounded through their actions, but also through their appearance. Knights will often wear battle-damaged cloaks as a constant reminder of past glories, and some non-combatant nobles mimic this trend by having slits artificially cut into their own. Unsurprisingly, attempts to fake battle damage are frowned upon – so seamstresses are employed to adorn such cloaks with fabrics provided by the local clothier, making it clear that the battle damage is decorative.
Tech dlc07 brt economy other 1.png Almshouses
The poor must be cared for, just enough to ensure productivity.
  • Leadership: +5 for Peasant Mob units
  • Growth: +10
Almshouses in Bretonnia are not happy places, but serve an important function for the peasant-class, who endlessly toil for the nobility in exchange for their ‘protection’ from evil in its various guises. Naturally, peasants only know servitude, leaving the Knights to carry out the heroic deeds so revered in Bretonnian society. Such loyalty is not reciprocated, however, for if peasants become afflicted by disease or injury to the extent that they can no longer toil the fields or work the looms, they are simply replaced by others in better physical condition. Almshouses provide a modicum of refuge to those wretched individuals who find themselves in such unfortunate predicaments. Such places are not a soft-option though – residents lives remaining hard, they are still expected to work long hours at menial tasks, with barely enough food provided and absolutely no sympathy, cures or palliative care offered.
Tech dlc07 brt economy other 2.png Town Census
Know your population, know the size of your army.
  • Unit experience: +2 for Peasant Mob unit recruits
  • Local recruitment capacity: +1
The structure of Bretonnian society is not concerned with the peasants – the vast, faceless rabble who do all the actual work, suffer and die without ever finding solace for their woes or redress for their concerns. For that reason, it’s very hard for a noble to truly know how many live and work his lands. Some landowners have thousands in order to work their sizeable estates, others just a few hundred to operate the looms which produce the cloth he trades in order to prop up his already-considerable wealth. It makes sense then, for each to survey his workers and send details of their numbers to the capital so the King knows how many can be levied to fight in his armies in the event of war.
Tech dlc07 brt economy other 3.png Subsidised Tools
For what is a peasant without his pitchfork?
  • Melee attack: +10 for Peasant Mob units
  • Construction cost: -5% for Infrastructure buildings
  • Recruitment cost: -10% for Peasant Mob units


In the context of Bretonnia, it is misleading to think of the pitchfork as a symbol of peasant rebellion, since such uprisings are so rare within its Dukedoms. The low-born are far more likely to use a pitchfork to defend their noble’s land than turn it against the noble himself. It also means that when war inevitably comes, he doesn’t have to spend valuable resources on weapons that he could otherwise spend on arming his Knights. Therefore, the high-born know that to give a Bretonnian peasant a pitchfork is to hand him a useful tool with which to work the fields and forearm him for the battles ahead.
Tech dlc07 brt economy other 4.png Charity
“Rejoice, peasants! For a generous Knight of Bretonnia provides for you!”
  • Chivalry: +20
Naturally, in a feudal society such as Bretonnia, peasant handouts are extremely rare, so when they do occur, they have a profound effect. Knights typically never share their riches with the low-born, be it battle-loot or the profits of his peasants ceaseless labour. Bretonnian peasants are, to a man, pitifully-poor individuals, who serve their betters past the point of total exhaustion while paying taxes almost as high as their paltry wages. Even if they are fortunate enough to become Men-at-Arms and take to the battlefield alongside Knights of the Realm, they must still pay for their own rations and bring their own equipment.
Tech dlc07 brt economy trade 1.png Improved Trade Vessels
A seaworthy fleet keeps the economy afloat.
  • Additional tradable resources produced: +5%
  • Income from trade: +5% trade agreement tariffs
The sea merchants who operate off Bretonnia’s shores constantly need tougher, more manoeuvrable ships. The rapidly changing currents off the coast, extreme gales that blow in from the Great Ocean to the west, pirates, and – not to forget – the sea-monsters who infest its waters are notoriously dangerous to navigate. Even the most experienced sailors find it difficult to avoid a shipwreck if they find themselves in an unfamiliar waters. These difficulties can sometimes hamper trade, since a lot of goods flowing in and out of Bretonnian ports use the congested, land-hugging ship-routes.
Tech dlc07 brt economy trade 2.png Harbourmaster Bribes
Bribing the harbourmaster pays dividends on import duties.
  • Additional tradable resources produced: +5%
  • Income from trade: +10% trade agreement tariffs
Bretonnia wears a fair mask over the not-uncommon presence of corruption. The harbourmasters who control access to all its lucrative trade ports make a decent living, but not always entirely by honest means. Often, following receipt of certain payments, they are able to direct ‘approved’ smugglers to safe moorings around Bretonnia’s perilous coast in order to avoid the tolls and duties levied at its major ports – knowledge they are often more than willing to share for the right price.
Tech dlc07 brt heraldry start.png The Chivalric Code
Every Bretonnian Lord knows that honour and chivalry come before everything.
  • Chivalry: +5
  • Armour: +5 for Icon general.pngLords and embedded Icon hero.pngHeroes
  • Leadership: +5 for Icon general.pngLords and embedded Icon hero.pngHeroes


Bretonnia is renowned as a land with a code of conduct that must be followed by all those with noble blood. The code is not just about a Knight’s behaviour – although that is also important – but also about the choices he makes during his exploits. Living for the moment, a Knight should always choose the most honourable course of action. To them, what matters is what they do now, not what they may or may not do in the future. It is often as simple as seeking battle as a way of securing personal honour and pride.
Tech dlc07 heraldry of artois.png Heraldry of Artois
Artois, where the unified Dukedoms swore fealty to the Uniter.
  • Diplomatic relations: +100 with the faction of Brt artois.pngArtois
  • Enables the Icon confederation.pngJoin Confederation diplomacy demand with Brt artois.pngArtois
  • Chivalry: +10


The forested realm of Artois has notable significance in Bretonnia’s history – it was the location of the first Gathering of the Companions, where the fourteen newly-united Dukedoms were first legitimised. Emblazoned on the Heraldry of Artois is the head of the monstrous boar Morthanok, symbol of Lord Folgar, the first Duke of Artois. A renowned hunter and lancer, Folgar's skills made him an invaluable Companion Knight who fought in several Great Battles alongside Gilles le Breton. Morthanok’s image is a reminder of the inaugural feast of the Companions, for which Folgar hunted down and slew the dangerous beast.
Tech dlc07 heraldry of bastonne.png Heraldry of Bastonne
Bastonne, birthplace of the Uniter and the source of his bloodline.
  • Diplomatic relations: +100 with the faction of Brt bastonne.pngBastonne
  • Enables the Icon confederation.pngJoin Confederation diplomacy demand with Brt bastonne.pngBastonne
  • Chivalry: +10


Prior to the Lady appearing before the Uniter and his fellow Grail Knights, the young Gilles rode out to cleanse his homeland Bastonne of the foul beasts wreaking havoc there. After slaying one such beast – the ancient Dragon Smearghus – he not only adopted its image on his Heraldry, but also wore its skin as part of his armour during all his Great Battles. To this day, the beast’s image and its pelt are revered in Bastonne, with the armour still kept and worn by the Duke ceremoniously as well as in warfare.
Tech dlc07 heraldry of bordeleaux.png Heraldry of Bordeleaux
Manann is more than a mere deity; he is a source of livelihood for many Bordelen citizens.
  • Diplomatic relations: +100 with the faction of Bordeleaux.pngBordeleaux
  • Enables the Icon confederation.pngJoin Confederation diplomacy demand with Bordeleaux.pngBordeleaux
  • Chivalry: +10


Bordeleaux is a land peacefully split over religious matters. Those residing on the coastlines assert that the Lady’s domain ends where the water turns salt – where the domain of Manann begins. The tempestuous Sea God’s tri-forked symbol is a reminder of the bond he forged with the bloodline of the Bordelen Dukes, during the Tenth Great Battle, against the sea-raiders from the North. Lord Marcus, the first Duke of Bordeleaux, was said to have fought alongside Manann himself that day, ending the battle by challenging and defeating the giant warrior in command of the Norscans that day.
Tech dlc07 heraldry of bretonnia.png Heraldry of Bretonnia
King Leoncoeur leads Bretonnia; his symbol, the Shield of Couronne.
  • Diplomatic relations: +100 with the faction of Brt bretonnia.pngBretonnia
  • Enables the Icon confederation.pngJoin Confederation diplomacy demand with Brt bretonnia.pngBretonnia
  • Chivalry: +10


King Leoncoeur's homeland of Couronne currently flies the Heraldry of Bretonnia. The heritage of Couronne’s Dukedom has ties to the original Grail Companions of Gilles the Uniter – their first Duke was the heroic Carleond, saviour of the city and older brother of the most devoted Companion of them all, Thierulf of Lyonesse. As children, the two brothers were said to have miraculously slain a great lion together, which is why the Heraldries of Lyonesse and Couronne – and hence, the Heraldry of Bretonnia – display a lion’s image.
Tech dlc07 heraldry of carcassonne.png Heraldry of Carcassonne
The sons of Carcassonne bear the symbol of the sword, the insignia of their warrior-culture.
  • Diplomatic relations: +100 with the faction of Carcassonne.pngCarcassonne
  • Enables the Icon confederation.pngJoin Confederation diplomacy demand with Carcassonne.pngCarcassonne
  • Chivalry: +10


It was Duke Lambard of Carcassonne, one of the famed Companions of Gilles the Uniter, who first adopted the image of the sword for his nation’s Heraldry. Although Carcassonne was one of few Bretonnian provinces that did not see a Great Battle on its lands, Lambard rode out to fight victoriously in nine of them. The blade symbolises Carcassonne’s warrior-culture, attested by their centuries-old tradition of gifting every newborn son a freshly-forged sword, which they are made to touch as soon as they enter the world. It is then ornamentally placed above their cots until it can be wielded.
Tech dlc07 heraldry of lyonesse.png Heraldry of Lyonesse
Lyonesse, the homeland of the most devoted of all the Grail Companions.
  • Diplomatic relations: +100 with the faction of Brt lyonesse.pngLyonesse
  • Enables the Icon confederation.pngJoin Confederation diplomacy demand with Brt lyonesse.pngLyonesse
  • Chivalry: +10


The Heraldry of Lyonesse was originally adopted by Thierulf, the most devoted of Gilles le Breton’s Grail Companions. In the years before the Great Battles, Thierulf of Lyonesse married Gilles’ sister and became his brother-in-law’s most trusted friend. He would later be one of the two Companions blessed by the Lady alongside Gilles himself, going on to fight victoriously in all twelve of the Great Battles with him. Lyonesse's Lion-symbol represents Thierhulf’s courageous nature in battle, and also the beast that he and his brother are said to have miraculously slain as children.
Tech dlc07 heraldry of parravon.png Heraldry of Parravon

  • Chivalry: +10


Adorning the family standard of the Dukes of Parravon is the pegasus rampant, the ultimate symbol of wealth for any Knight fortunate enough to acquire one. This Heraldry was adopted by Lord Agilgar, first Duke of Parravon and one of the famed Companions of Gilles the Uniter. It is said to be a likeness of his winged steed Glorfinial, lord and sire of all Royal pegasi, whom he befriended. It was atop his friend Glorfinial that Agilgar was carried into the Fifth Great Battle – the liberation of Parravon – paving his way to Companionhood by his actions that day.

One people, one land – all shall know its glory and grandeur.
  • Diplomatic relations: +50 with Dwarf Realms
  • Diplomatic relations: +50 with Empire Provinces
  • Chivalry: +20


When the fourteen standards of Bretonnia come together, it is one of the most majestic displays of unity in the Old World. Gilles le Breton could not have achieved the unification of the Kingdom without the divine Blessing of the Lady and the other Companions, the first Dukes of Bretonnia. When the greatest Knights across the fourteen Dukedoms come together to fight as one, as they did on the day of the final Great Battle, it is truly a sight to behold. It is an inspiring show of solidarity, earning respect of both men and Dwarfs alike.
