Edicts (promotions, taxes, and festivals) increase your kingdom’s Stability, Economy, and Loyalty scores.

Taxes are payments gathered from a kingdom’s citizens to help pay for roads, buildings, festivals, and other types of Consumption.

Promotions are how you make your citizens feel good in their lives and about living in your kingdom. These range from hiring minstrels to go around to your cities and sing songs that make the people happy and entertainers performing in local markets, to propaganda campaigns and religious missionaries.

Festivals are activities that help the people of your kingdom to become more devoted to their nation. These can range from carnivals, parades, to high profile public executions and ceremonies to rewarding notable citizens. The level of festivals represents the number of major festivals per year your kingdom enacts. The BP paid for this helps to spread the cost of the major festivals over a whole year as well as sponsor an additional number of smaller festivals.

Some buildings, such an Arena, halve the
Consumption from edicts. If multiple buildings are
built in a kingdom, this Consumption is not halved
again. This is a one time bonus.
