Sooner or later, your Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord character will have their final meeting with death. To make sure your clan's story doesn't end there, having a child, or several, ensures you'll get to continue the medieval story you've spent hours building.
Here's everything you need to know about how to have a child in Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord.
Mount and Blade 2: Bannerlord How to Have a Child
Before you can have a child in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, you have to go through the rather involved process of wooing and marrying someone. Luckily, we've covered marriage in a separate guide.
After you've married someone, they'll join your clan. The key to having a child is spending some time with your spouse.
This can either be done by having them in your party or by visiting the castle or settlement you've assigned them to and waiting there for a while. Currently, it's rather hard to pinpoint the exact amount of time required.
After a while, you'll receive a notification pointing out that your spouse – or you, if you've chosen a female character – is pregnant. From what we can tell, pregnancy doesn't seem to impact the character's abilities in any way.
With your spouse pregnant, all you need to do is wait for a few seasons to pass, after which a baby will magically pop up, automatically joining your clan.
That's pretty much how to have a child in Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, thus also ensuring that you have an heir for your clan or kingdom when you die.
Children will eventually grow into teenagers and adults, increasing your Clan's Hero pool.
Putting them to work early on might not make for a wonderful childhood, but definitely helps with improving their skills, paying off later on.
