I tried using the draft worker card on a newly captured city (with a governor installed and all) with around 69,000 population. According to the card description it's supposed to draft up to 10% of the population based on the skill roll. However, a draft with a roll in the low 20s and a second draft in the 70s both produced only 100 workers, and a third draft got 000 workers. Seems a bit off.

Three questions:
1. What is the game version you are running?
2. What is the game version the savegame was created in (cards are mostly part of the savegame)?
3. It clearly says "2.5% if on Loyalty 100 and Adminin Skill Roll of Governor 100". Did you fullfill those requirements?

3 is particulary unlikely, because it is freshly conquered. No way loyalty is at 100! Nevermind the Admin roll.

As per the title, 1.03 beta 9. Not sure when I started the game, anywhere from b7-9. And it's the draft workers card - that goes up to a max of 10%. I get that low loyalty would affect the roll, but to the point of a draft of literally 100 out of a population of, sorry, 89,000 as it turns out when the theoretical maximum is 10%? Even 1% of that would yield nearly 900 workers. Is the effect of loyalty THAT strong, even with a good skill roll? After all, that isn't actually a requirement as far as I can tell - it just denotes the maximum possible, with what I would have assumed are decreasing returns with lower skill rolls and loyalty.

Also I feel like if you didn't draft anyone the text probably shouldn't say that you drafted 000 workers.

Just loaded an autosave to do some testing at the start of the turn. Starting population 101,900, 900 workers, loyalty 2. Three draft worker cards.

1st roll: 42, drafted 000, decreased happiness and loyalty by 10% (down to 1, presumably)
2nd roll: 125, drafted 100
3rd roll: 128, drafted 000

The loyalty is a straight-up modifier to the result. So with loyalty 2 you are getting only 2% of the result you'd get with loyalty 100.

You need to have higher loyalty for these Stratagems to work well.

Going to add a player protection here for next Open Beta.

Thanks for reporting
