Proposed Canon

Leadership is a special (or natural) ability of Warlords (and some Archons).Erf-b1-p040aSame-site.PNG It grants all units under direct command of a warlord a bonus.Erf-b1-p084aSame-site.PNG Leadership also allows the Unit to give orders to units it is stacked with, as well as prevent it from auto-attacking non-allies. Leaders can specify particular enemy units to strike, while ignoring others in the same stack and hex.

Leadership can also refer to a group of leaders, or to a group that have the Leadership ability, without being a reference to the Leadership ability.

Unled stacks are subject to orders from commanders in other stacks in the same hex, or from the capital.LIAB Text 24

Leadership Bonus

The Leadership Bonus of a Warlord is conferred upon all Units in the same stack.

The Leadership Bonus of a Chief Warlord applies to all units of their capital.Erf-b1-p040aSame-site.PNG A Chief Warlord in the field confers his full bonus to the units in his stack, one-half his bonus (rounded down) to all his units in the hex, and one-third (rounded down) to those in the same battlespace.Erf-b1-p113Same-site.PNG.Erf-b1.5-p033Same-site.PNG


The bonus is directly proportional to the warlord's level.

Apparently the leadership bonus is very significant (and thus very important), since leaderless stacks are relatively weak.Erf-b1-p058Same-site.PNG, Erf-b1-p113Same-site.PNG, Erf-b1-p125Same-site.PNG, Erf-b1-p128Same-site.PNG

Leadership may combine with magic to produce special spells that guide unit actions. For example, the Archons which produced the DDR hologram to lead the coalition dance fight in the battle for gobwin knobErf-b1-p128Same-site.PNG had the leadership special as part of their skillset.Erf-b1.5-p046Same-site.PNG

Leadership units

"Leadership" can also refer to either a single leader or group of leaders such as Warlords or Casters. Gobwin Knob sought to target or "hit" the leadership of the Royal Crown Coalition to deny RCC forces leadership bonuses. They were successful when they hit RCC Leaders Duke Nozzle and the Blue Warlord.
