Proposed Canon

Duty is one of applications of Natural Thinkamancy. All units are subject to Natural Thinkamancies: Obedience, Loyalty, Duty, and others.Erf-b1-p084aSame-site.PNG

Duty affects Commanders only, which means it affects Warlords, Casters, and possible Chiefs of Natural Allies. It has a higher affect on Warlords, highest on Chief Warlord. It makes them want to use their own initiative in the service of the Ruler. It also makes them reluctant to withhold information, unless they are convinced that it is in their Rulers best interests for them to do so. For example, Parson withholds from Stanley his strong suspicions that Charlie is responsible for their failure to locate any Gobwins, because he's sure [[Stanley[]] would react inappropriately if he knew that Charlie was up to something. And it makes them very reluctant to conspire against the Ruler.

Speculation

Rulers may be affected by some form of Duty that makes them pop or designate heirs, an action that is good for their side but has no advantages for them (and can even be a dangerous option in some cases).
