Farmers may be found in groups traveling between towns and villages. They may be captured from these groups or found and recruited from prisoners of a defeated enemy.

Farmers can spawn randomly in taverns across Calradia. The player can speak to them about a Bandit Infestation in their home village, and they will ask the player to assist in removing said bandits.


While farmers may come to your aid when defending a village, or can be recruited when rescued, they rarely serve any meaningful purpose beyond acting as cannon fodder. They're neither resilient, fast, or strong enough to make any significant impact on a battle. In fact, they can prove to be more of an annoyance when trying to help a village, as the group of farmers spawned are often large enough to slow down your cavalry if not your entire army. But they can also be excellent meat shields, taking fire from enemy marksmen for you and your party. The best way to do this would be to assign your farmers to a separate group and then order all but that one group to hold position, allowing the farmers to charge ahead to their doom.

If attempting to raise mercenaries, it is advised that you keep your farmers out of the conflict until they have leveled up through shared experience, your training skill, or through sparring in a training field.
