Your leadership abilities extend directly from your authority as a noble.
Benefit: The number of followers of any given level that you may attract is increased by 10% (rounded up). These extra followers represent men and women from your land and holdings who will follow you regardless of your personal history. As such, their numbers are determined as though you had no special modifiers to your Leadership score, such as for having been responsible for the death of some of your followers.
