Start

Goals are increasing the Clan Tier Level and Smithery.

Equip yourself with bow. Recruit up to 20 men, hunt looters, always hold position and shield wall. Smelt looted weapons and refine hardwood if needed, sell iron and the rest of the loot. Buy cheap horses (Midland, Saddle or Steppe) for more speed on map, 1 per party member.

Making Gold with Smithery

Strategy:

Marriage

Speed up Castle projects

Clan members and Companions

Companions are useful as captains and to fill skills that your own character lacks. Family members are useful as party leaders and governors.

Prefer specialized clan members over allrounders. Prefer focus points over attribute points. Aim for 100+ skills. Level up clan members quickly by smithing high price weapons.

Level up Steward skill of a clan member by making him quartermaster in your party and take care of different food variation.

These skills can be substituted: - Steward - Scouting - Medicine - Engineering

Party leaders

Good party leaders have Steward (Quartermaster) 125+, Tactics 100+ and Leadership 75+.

Use a companion with high tactics and learn him Steward in your party as Quastermaster

Governors

Managing Castles, Towns and Garrisons

Steward: - 25: Spartan - 50: Seven Veterans - 75: Stiff Upper Lip - 100: Not implemented / Efficient Campainer - 125: Forseeable Future - 150: Relocation - 175: Gourmet - 200: Contractors - 225: Arenicos Horses - 250: Urban Developer - 275: Price of Loyality
