Come to the Table and have a look with me, my old and loyal General. This is my Kingdom and I will give it under your Protection, while im away to support my Brother's Crusade.
As a Warrior, you should build up the Weaponproduction. I didn't had the Time in my Life for that, so I recruited Mercenaries, with the Money I traded. Your famost Passion is the Cavalry and you know of it's Effectness, by protecting large Landscapes.
But let me offer an Option. Build Churches and increse the Prayer work, believing People will form a Archer Militia to support your Walls. I also know about.... your Tavern History and your knowledge of brewing. Feel free on your Investments.
The Enemy has always sending out some Scout Troops, to find an unprotected Farm or Mine. But if he realizes that the King is away, you must expect a Invasion.
It is a rich Land, if some Buildings are destroyed, it won't be that dramatic. But maybe you have to buy Ressources or even Protect the Castle itself.
Your Men are moving out, to the four Outposts. You can watch them from your new Residence.
We will meet again, when this Crusade is over, take good Care of my Villagers and their Homes!
