Early days in Medieval Dynasty will mean doing most of the work yourself. The fun part is when you can offload some of the work to other villagers. Then you'll have the time to focus on whatever you want to.
Below we'll run you through how to recruit villagers, then turn them into workers and what you'll get from them!
Medieval Dynasty Jobs
How To Recruit Villagers
To meet the requirement to recruit a villager you'll need 50 dynasty Reputation. You can gain Dynasty Reputation by doing quests, the first one will give you the 50 you need.
- Now find a village and use the Left ALT key to enter Inspection Mode.
- You'll be able to see quests, vendors and more but you'll want to find the recruitable villagers.
- They should have a stick person icon about them.
- Raise your approval with them to 70% and ask them to join you.
- You'll need to build them a house to live in though, which takes 21 Logs, 66 Sticks and 32 Straws to build.
Buildings, Jobs And Workers
Now that you've got some villagers, you'll want to make them workers. Head to the Management tab and select a building or villagers. You can either assign a villager to a building or vice versa depending on which tab you choose.
Most buildings will have multiple roles to choose from. Some workers will also need items in the buildings inventory to work.
Hunters will produce Meat and Leather. Gatherers will produce Berries, Mushrooms and Feathers. This is a great way to passively get food.
Field Workers will plough fields, plant seeds and harvest crops. You'll need to make sure there are plenty of Seeds and Grain in your Barn chests for workers to use.
Build some fields then head to the Management tab and select which seeds you want sowing in each field. The workers are a little slow but it means you don't have to do anything. Farmers will use different crafting stations like the Thresher to make items.
Lumberjacks will cut down trees. Make sure your Woodshed is within 50m of Wood. It's best to place the Woodshed either next to or in a forest.
Sewing will give you Thread and Fabric which will allow you to make Clothes. You need Flax Stalk to make Linen Thread and you'll want to get some Sheep to get Wool for Wool Thread. Leather can be acquired from hunting or from your Hunter's Lodge.
There's so much to do in Medieval Dynasty a large focus is making as much money as possible! If you're just starting out you might be wondering where to find Straw and Iron. It's a good idea to get your farm set up too, you'll need manure to plant crops and Flaxseed is a great crop to grow. There's also plenty of animals to hunt to create items, some of the most rewarding creatures being Bears and Wolves! Recruiting villagers later in the game is vital, getting a wife too and you'll need to upgrade their homes using Daub. Hopefully, Medieval Dynasty will make its way to console players too, there's plenty that could be added to the title's roadmap, maybe we'll see multiplayer in the future!.
