    Default Adding Character Traits

    I had a bit of trouble finding a "list" of positive character traits that could serve as a quick reference when one intends to quickly beef up a few characters on thier campaign map.

    With that being said, here's my quick list of positive traits by character type. I have not added comments to all of them, but I can tell you that i've avoided traits that have ANY negative affects (in some cases by only noting the highest level of a trait that can be acquired before negative affects begin to occur).

    How to use:
    1) select the character that you'd like to add traits to.
    2) type something like this - give_trait this GoodAssassin 5
    aa

    Assassin:
    GoodAssassin 5

    I've only made my way through the non-muslim traits. Haven't ventured into ancillaries yet.

    Perhaps i'll have a list up some time this week.

    Awesome list mate, cheers for that. I've been using the very detailed trait list posted on this site but it doesn't have some of the traits for non-generals, so this is very useful.

    Question Re: Adding Character Traits

    I'm having a problem with adding traits to minor characters, primarily with getting the program to recognize their names. Royalty is easy, unlike in the Rome Total War games royalty don't have family names, so all one has to do is enter the first name surrounded by quotation marks, i.e., "Robert", "William", etc. When I've tried to enter the names of generals who married into the family, or spies I have a problem. In Rome Total War most characters had both first names and surnames. I would enter the name as "Caesar Julii", etc, etc. With MTW2 however I find that Medieval Shell won't recognize compound character names such as "Robert Elliotts". I tried fusing the names together, i.e., "RobertElliotts" or binding them together with a line, i.e. "Robert_Elliotts" but Medieval Shell still won't recognize them. Even worse I'm sure are those characters with place names such as "Robert of Bedford". Has anyone come across this problem and found the solution?

    Ah ha, now I get it. You take the character in question, move him somewhere where you can select him alone, select him, and then use "this" without the quotation marks as the character's name. So you enter: give_trait this "CharacterTrait" value (where value is a number usually between 1 and 3 but sometimes between 1 and 5) to add the trait.

    I don't get it. Do I type this stuff while I am actually playing the game? If I do, what exactly do I type? Let's say I want to give my imam Mahfouz the Warmonger trait. What EXACTLY do I type?
