The Authoritive Leader perk allows the expedition to have one extra member, be it a human or an animal companion. On the other hand, it also reduces maximum Sanity to 70.

The only way to obtain this perk is to play as Marcus Garvey, who begins the game with it.

Benefit Edit

With a bit of luck with recruiting new members, the negative effect of the perk can be easily outweighted. Authoritive Leader is especially useful for hunting parties, but player must first assemble such an expedition.

Tips Edit

Add a Missionary to combat the effect of reduced sanity. Especially useful if having a combat oriented party for more dice and combinations.
