Use punctation please!

Few hints:

- Store all the armies that are not active in a barracks
- Buy alot of food
- There is a quest that your armie will not eat for 12 months ( or 1 year )

Always try to get alot of reserve food.
I had 40000 food, all is going down but i could hold it for atleast a few years.

Food is overated, I've never had problems with food. I'm always short of manpower or gold.

I really don't know how you can run into food shortages in this game as any country. I'm always selling off huge amounts of it. Personally, I think that quest where your army doesn't eat for a year is a waste of resources. It's the only quest I don't complete.

But yeah, if you're not at war: keep your armies in their barracks and your ships in the harbors.

I've had food become a problem when I've gotten bogged down in a distant war. Your guys can eat up a lot of food if they spend several turns in enemy territory.

I can see where that could become a problem. I've never encountered it even though I have gotten tangled up in an extended conflict. Because I stock pile so much of it, I always have enough. However, I did run a little low a couple of times.
