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.

The mercenary post is built of wood, but costs gold to build. It is hard to destroy, as well as it can spread flames as it may catch fire.
