Msg event.pngHorse Population Boom

Msg event.pngSurplus Equipment

Turning a man into a soldier is expensive and time consuming. One of the biggest costs is the necessary equipment that turns a defenseless man into a relentless killing machine. Fortunately we have found that we have a stockpile of such equipment sitting around. It is in poor condition and won't last long, but if we were to use it now we could get men into uniform much cheaper.

Msg event.pngTimber Surplus

Growing trees for timber is a bit of unpredictable business, taking many years before a tree is ready for harvesting.

Msg event.pngAdministrative Problems

It is becoming increasingly difficult to administer our armies. The men we have in the job are proving inept and far too venal. We search for men who are just corrupt enough to be bought, without being too greedy, until this is done our military administration will prove costly.
