Majesty 2 - The Economy
"The Golden Rule: He who has the gold, makes the rules. "
The economy of Majesty 2 is an elaborate and intriguing system. When the King (the player) gives money to a hero, they don’t just hire someone for a certain sum of money which they will never see again. Rather, given an efficiently developed economy, the money will return to the King’s treasury sooner or later – in the form of taxes paid by guilds, markets, shops and other members of the economic system of the game.
This means that one of the player’s task, as sovereign of the kingdom, is to take care that the money paid to heroes for accomplishing their missions does not fall into the wrong hands – that it may come, by turns, back into the hands of the tax collector.
"I happen to be seeking monetary gratification, yeah"
Development of an effective economic system is an important task for the Majesty 2 player. If you have assured a stable inflow of money into the treasury, you are halfway to victory!
Your trading post can be upgraded as well. Though it does not increase the amount of money produced by the trade post, leveling does strengthen both the post and the caravan, creating greater fortifications and other protection. The second-level trading post is visually different from the first-level post – and of special note, it has a watchtower for an archer. The caravan changes as well. The first-level caravan is either a horse and carriage, or simply a human with trunks on his back. The second-level caravan is more impressive and reliable.
