Summary

A grand meditation throne will create a throne room. It can be used as by nobles as a meditation focus; in order for the throne to be used for meditation, you must assign a noble to it. Specifically, grand meditation thrones are required to meet the requirements of a Baron or higher.

In addition to medtitation, grand meditation thrones can be sat on in order to watch any of the three televisions. Unlike the regular meditation throne, it cannot be used as seating for tables, dining chairs, etc.

Psyfocus

The grand meditation throne is a Dignified meditation focus, with a base strength of +15% psyfocus / day. If it is in a throne room that meets the pawns requirements, its focus strength is improved by 8%. It otherwise has the exact same meditation effectiveness as the regular meditation throne, so it is more important to use the throne that meets the title's requirements.

Additionally, both thrones' effectiveness are affected by room impressiveness. A grand meditation throne has a maximum of +33% psyfocus / day in an Unbelievably impressive room that meets throne requirements.

  • N.B. The room impressiveness descriptors only relate to descriptors the room will have at that specific value. The descriptors themselves do not control the value. A room with 50 room impressiveness will be listed "Slightly Impressive" but will not make the cut off for the 4% increase.

    Comfort

    Comfort is a measure of how high a pawn can refill their comfort meter while using the piece of furniture. A pawn sitting in a grand meditation throne with a higher comfort value can achieve a higher level. It does not affect the rate at which comfort increases only the maximum level. Comfort levels over 100% have no additional effect. Comfort varies by quality but not material. Grand meditation thrones of the same quality level will all have the same comfort, regardless of what they're constructed from.

  • Comfort is gained while meditating on the throne, or sitting to watch television.

    Analysis

    Grand meditation thrones are expensive and time consuming to build. They are only necessary if you want a Baron or higher. Otherwise, a regular meditation throne will give the exact same psyfocus gain to anyone of the Praetor rank or below. The grand throne gives more comfort, but this is not usually worth the material cost or the large increase in wealth. Plus, an excellent regular throne gives the maximum +10 comfortable moodlet during meditation.

    Multiple people can share a throne room, but each noble requires a separate throne. If you are planning to host the High Stellarch, then prepare another grand throne for them.
