If my cleric bombs his reaction roll to hire a henchman, that henchman badmouths him to the town, and he gets a -1 on further reaction rolls in that town.
Is that forever? For the month?
If this happens several times in a row, do the penalties stack?
Also, when hiring a handful of Light Infantry, do you roll reaction rolls for each man, or do you hire them as a unit? The prices for Light Infantry seem pretty standard, and if you had to track every up-sale to every reluctant footman in a batch of 17, it seems like it would become unwieldy.
