An advisor is a person with deep knowledge in a specific area that offers advice to a country's leader. Tasks such as conducting warfare, promoting scientific advancement and managing an economy are three examples of areas an advisor can offer aid.
Advisors can be managed in the Court panel of the Country interface. There are 7 advisors for each of the three kinds of monarch power, so there are 21 advisor types in total. Each advisor provides a bonus based on his type.
Advisors are further divided by their inherent skill level. Skill ranges from +1 to +3, each providing additional monarch points relative to their level (i.e. a level 2 diplomat provides +2 per month). The cost of hiring and maintaining an advisor increases quadratically with the advisor's skill level. The advisor's skill level affects only the cost and the monarch power generated. The skill level does not affect the advisor type bonus
