Poems are a feature of Warband, and can be learned by talking to any one of the Wandering Poets (Ashik, Bard, Troubador, Skald, or Minstrel), all of which are commonly found in the taverns of different towns. Each poem costs 300 denars, and will take a small while to learn.
Poems are used to woo ladies by raising your relationship points with her, allowing you to marry them. Female characters can learn all of the poems as well, but other than completion on the character's known poems stats, they serve no purpose.
Types of PoemsEdit
Every poem is a different type, such as romantic or comedic. Using the right type of poem with a lady will raise their relationship level. But be aware that when you try to recite a poem to a lady, some may find the poem repulsive, reducing your relationship points, while others may find them neutral, changing nothing. You can ask Wandering Poets to see what type of poems a lady likes. There are only a total of five poems in the game.
|Poem||Type||First line||Appeals to|
|A Conversation in the Garden||Comic||"All the silks of Veluca"||Ambitious ladies|
|A Heart's Desire||Mystic||"You are the first and the last"||Romantic ladies|
