RimWorld – Royalty Titles

Titles are a new mechanic in the Royalty DLC. They allow the bearer to use Psychic amplifiers and Psycasts without upsetting the Empire, in exchange the bearer has an increasing number of demands to maintain their mood.

List of titles

Titles increase in level, starting at Freeholder, increasing to Yeoman, Knight / Dame, Praetor, Baron / Baroness, and Count / Countess. Further ranks include Duke / Duchess, Consul, Stellarch, and Emperor / Empress, but these are not achievable by colonists during standard gameplay. Starting at Esquire, the title holder will start to demand certain apparel, rooms, and furniture, as well as begin to refuse to do particular types of work. These are listed below.

All titles, starting at Yeoman, allow an increasing level of psycast. Yeoman allows level 1, Esquire level 2, Knight level 3, Praetor level 4, Baron level 5, and Count and above level 6. All titles allow the consumption of Lavish meals, insect jelly, milk, berries, ambrosia, chocolate, beer, go-juice, luciferium, penoxycyline, flake, psychite tea, yayo, smokeleaf joint, and wake-up. Certain titles will allow the consumption of ‘simpler’ meals, these are noted below.

All titles, starting at Esquire, require psycaster apparel as well as any powered armor. Titles of this and higher level also require other specific apparel choices that are listed below. Titles of Esquire and above also require a throne room, and have minimum requirements for bedrooms. These requirements include a minimum number of tiles of room area, and in many cases, a minimum impressiveness. All throne rooms require 2 braziers which must be lit. All bedrooms require a double bed. All throne and bed rooms must be fully floored (IE no soil/ground)
