Rimworld Royalty Titles Guide – All Title Requirements & Benefits

AKA How to Please the Imperial Empire

Rimworld Royalty brings some new mechanics to the survival game: a ruling empire and the ability to use psychic amplifiers and psycasts. The system is a bit complicated, but at its simplest level, you can have one of your survivors rise through the empire’s ranks. Each provides benefits to your colony, but also comes with a lot of requirements and does make the person unable to do certain tasks. Royalty is above menial labor apparently. Our Rimworld Royalty Titles Guide will explain how titles work, what the requirements are for each, why you want to upgrade titles, and what abilities are unlocked each step of the way.

What Are Rimworld Titles?

Royal titles are bestowed by the empire, increasing a colonists rank within the social hierarchy. Each title comes with benefits, but it also makes the title holder more pompous and demanding. Not only will they need nicer rooms and better food, but they may also issue decrees and orders, and make inspiring or demoralizing speeches.

Your colonist needs a Rimworld Title to use Psycasts without angering the empire.

What Are Psycasts?

Psycasts are basically psychic powers. A colonist with a pychic amplifier can use their psycasts to pacify and defeat foes, blind enemies, mind-control units, or even block pain sensation. Higher level psycasts can teleport objects and people, induce mass vomiting, drive animals or enemies berserk, and make allies temporarily invisible.

What is the Rimworld Empire?

The Empire is an honor-bound culture with incredibly advanced technology. Think plasma swords, Zeus-like hammers, and even weapons that can communicate with the wielder. They also embrace body modifications such as drill arms, skin hardening glands, and nuclear stomachs, whatever that is.

How Do I Increase My Rimworld Royalty Title?

In general, you earn better royal titles by completing quests given by the Empire. These are procedurally generated and can ask you to host guests or prisoners, build and defend a structure, send out colonists to assist allies, explore nearby sites, or defeat challenging foes.
