    Seasonal Economic Changes

    Sounds like a good business plan to me.

    Agreed. Makes sense though. The grand mechanics needs to be finished before working on something so relatively stand-alone as fleshing out companions. For a roleplaying guy like me, I miss them though

    I'm pretty sure the companions are generic and generated for the playthrough at this point. Read something about the devs wanting to add written companions with unique stories and personalities at a later point

    Becoming a merchant prince(ss)

    I was not aware. Good to know. Maybe I'll look into it now that I chose horribly wrong when I pledged myself to the Vladians shortly before the got steamrolled by all 3 neighbors at the same time. I'm seriously considering just abandoning the cause at find a new king after the inevitable collapse.

    How to fight huge battles without getting all my men killed?

    Nah, got it all on realistic. But spend most of my MnB time playing Prophecy of Pendor. That mod is like vanilla on steroids, so you have to consider tactics. Simply steamrolling with hvy cav is not an option.

    Have you gotten a good healer on your team? They (should?) increase the survival rate of your men. Haven't actually tested it VS not having a healer, but most of my men survive with miss Willowbark in the party. Other than that, don't let your men charge an enemy in formation. The archers will...

    You misunderstood me. You should just only let them answer once. And not add ekstra sub questions.

    I disagree :smile: For one thing, you have to counter strengths and weaknesses that are the same as your own. You can't rely on your own strong infantry to do the hard work alone, as the enemy is just as strong. I think that's an interesting problem.

    Depending on the period, you might end up with a rather germanized army.

    Thats civil war for you. There is an Asterix comic dealing with that problem ;)
