I wrote earlier about a Spicevendor caravan not making any money - but I left her going and she's now bringing in 500+ a day. I sent her out very soon after recruiting - does a companion need to build up some of their own funds through looting to be able to buy goods to operate the caravan? (A longstanding non-Spicevendor companion, as a test, brought in 500+ per day almost immediately).I cant even support a 150 tier 5 Army and I have 1 town, 1 castle and 3 workshops. I have a brewery in husn fulq and it has a grain producing village directly in front of it and yet I barely make 100 denars.
I don't even bother with caravans anymore, they get captured so often that its not even worth it, also the companion slot is now worth more than the measly denars and risk.
Do I just need to git gud or is there something wrong here?
