Maybe it’s just my luck, having found huge deposits of coal and iron at my town, but I managed to deck out two solders with:
- 1 steel short sword
-1 steel shield
- a suit of iron armor
EACH. So, as you can guess, murdering the goblin camp was incredibly easy. To a ridiculous extent, for that matter. I’m pretty sure this is just my luck, but this might be something you have to fix.
