Functionality[edit | edit source]
The mercenary post allows to recruit Arabian units with a wide range of unconventional tools and tactics. Mercenaries cost only gold and a peasant to hire, they need neither weapons nor armour to equip. Most units are much more expensive than their European counterparts, however.
