Attracting Peasants and Followers
The new rules for domains in Axioms 3 allow PCs under level 9 to acquire a domain and secure it by building a stronghold.
The PC's followers are supposed to begin showing up during the construction of the stronghold. Elsewhere in the rules, it's explicit that the PC must be 9th level to gain followers. Can I assume that rule is still in effect, or can PCs below 9th level attract followers by building a stronghold?
The PC also attracts peasants once the stronghold is complete. Unlike the follower rule, there doesn't seem to be an explicit rule that states peasants only show up when the PC is 9th level or higher.
If a PC below 9th level builds a stronghold, does it attract peasants? Or do they only show up when the PC hits 9th level?
