Caravan Guards are a mercenary troop. These units can be found guarding the caravans that cross the map, always on horseback.

Usually you will find Caravan Guards and a Caravan Master with the caravans plus a few tier one and two troops from the kingdom the caravan belongs to. Caravans can have 5 to 25 Caravan Guards.


To make the best use of Caravan Guards, make sure they are upgraded as quickly as possible. They are a good starting-out cavalry, but may be easily cut down by anyone stronger than looters and bandits.

Caravan Guards do not use tactics when you're fighting a caravan. They will usually charge straight into battle, giving the player little time to assemble whatever force they may have, although the caravans only contain 12-40 troops.
