Battle Brothers Wiki


Moods affect starting morale of men in combat and are influenced by various events. The common positive ones being winning battles, gaining confidence in leadership (completed an ambition) and the common negative ones being lost a brother in battle, dismissed men without compensation. Every day, in the absence of other factors/events, mood slowly trends towards 50% or Content.
