gimil wrote:yeah i like the idea but i want everything that gives bonuses to be relateds to an army recuiting. like the villagers will joni the army. with the gold mine villagers are egar to join which ill increase the amount deployed on villages.
maby make something like a mercenarie camp that gives a good bonuses?
however i still want the castle to produce the bulk of the army.
a weapon smith or an armor smith could be nice. especially if bonuses for defending or attacking rolls are added.
own the weapon smith and you get +1 for the attacking dice

JupitersKing wrote:Also, I would like to see more space between the castles, so that none actually border each other. Then put nuetral areas between them. Another part of this is that every castle has an 'Estate' of surrounding territories. Control of the castles get armies but controllong the estate does as well. You also can't claim the estate bonus without holding the castle. This keeps a seiging army from gaining your bonus while you are still holed up and resisting.

The second way is through Barracks. These recruits local men. They would still need gold but only 1 per batch. But this is where the resources come in to play.
Raising troops means they need wood (for spears, wagons, etc.), livestock (horses and cows, for pulling wagons, food, and leather [used for armor]), grain (to feed men and horse), and metal (for weapon tips and armor).

For the resource bonuses, how about a simplified set?
Mercenary Camp (a few, edge areas) = X
Gold Mine = Y
Mercenaries + Gold = Z
Blacksmith (1 per castle) = A
Iron Mine = B
Blacksmith + Iron = C
Village (1+ per castle) = D
Farmland (between castles) = E
Village + Farmland = F
