Food Production

High food production is a necessity in each village to ensure you not only generate a large amount of honour but also allows you to train troops quickly because it make population come to your village quicker. Each peasant eats a certain amount of food depending on how much rations you give them. Below is a table showing how much each peasant eats at whatever ration amount you select.


Food per peasant

You can use the table below to work out how much food you need to make a day for your own population.


Food Rations ¼ ½ 1 2 3 4
Food per peasant per day 75 150 300 600 900 1200

As you can see it takes a lot of food to feed your population at max rations all day. At the start of the game you usually can have around 100 population if you place your hovels close to your village hall. If you research housing capacity you can have over 200 population per village.


If you want to have max rations for a population of 100 all day you need to make 120,000 food per day, that’s 20,000 of each of the six food types, but you can’t make 6 food types in any village. So if you’re smart and build the lowland village type which you can make 5 food types, it means producing 24,000 of each of the 5 food types in that village to run max rations all day long.


If you want to have max rations for a population of 200 all day you need to make 240,000 food per day, that’s 40,000 of each of the six food types, but you can’t make 6 food types in any village. So if you’re smart and build the lowland village type which you can make 5 food types, it means producing 48,000 of each of the 5 food types in that village to run max rations all day long.


Ale per peasant

You can use the table below to work out how much ale you need to make a day for your own population.


Ale Rations x1 x2 x3 x4
Ale per peasant per day 24 48 72 96

As you can see you don’t need to make nearly as ale per day as you do food to keep high rations, but breweries don’t make a lot of ale at the start of the game so you have to research them up quite a bit.


If you want to have max ale rations for a population of 100 all day you need to make 9,600 ale per day


If you want to have max ale rations for a population of 200 all day you need to make 19,200 ale per day
