let me try..I am only allowed 9 troops, or 10 troops with a roguery perk in the hideout! Is this because bands of bandits would attack the player if he doesn't have a good amount of troops, if he waits from early in the day to night? Such a weird limitation.
if you fail a hideout there are ppl outside that are there to save your budd
so same for the mission there need to be ppl at a reserve or you could loose al your troops and fail the quest
thinking about it
maybe thats a good quest choice .. less troops but you may fail or more troops and a high chance of success
oh and why 10 ..
its a hideout with lookouts .. in a canyon or something .. if you storm in they just vanish and come back later ... so you need to sneek in , not alarming em
