maybe YM would rather release a "troop guide".  :wink: I still have hard time with indian troops, which one got rifles or bows etc.

I put a starting troop tree on the first post.   :wink:

It doesn't have everything though, just stats right now.

Forgive the double post, but the original troop tree I posted was 6 months old.   :oops:

Up to date now.

Try to find a door in a town that just has a (.). It is the torumant. Use it to get quick renown.

Question. How do you cross the Rio? I can't see any fords or bridges. Is there a ferry or am I missing something?

True. But Texans would do it by damming and diverting the river so they could drill for oil. :P

When fighting Indians or others that rely heavily on horses try killing the horses.  It's a bigger target and they will be easier to fight once they are on their feet.

After a bank rob the owner of the Bank, Alexander, attacked and captured my hotel. Was that a reaction to the bank rob or the dropped relation?

Something else that works really well is making that Indian party chase you. Wait until you are close to a village and then turn around and attack the indian party. The custom scene that loads will be that lot of the town/village and importantly the indians will be dismounted. You can gun them down at a distance as they run towards you.

A couple of questions I hope someone can answer:

1) How many companions are there? I've only found 3.

2) How do you find out where your companions are? (there's no travellers?)

3) Who do you sell prisoners to? (There's no slave trader?)

4) What's the mine for? (I explored it and found nothing)

5) Where is the 'graveyard'? (I was challenged to a duel but I couldn't found a graveyard in El Rio or on the map)

I don't know if anyone use it but, "hold fire"&"fire at will" is very useful against cavalry. My soldiers killed 3 cavalry units before they charged in my recent game.
