How to Operate a Caravan
To operate a caravan you need 15,000 gold, and do the following:
- Go to a major town, preferably one with a middle position and access to many trade roads to other towns.
- Talk with different NPCs until you find the one with the option “I want to build a caravan”
- Choose a companion to lead your caravans, preferably one with good trade skills.
- Have an extra few thousand golds with you, because caravans guards take their wages regardless of whether the caravan has made a profit.
- Be patient as it will take some time to turn a profit, but the caravan will start to make a profit soon.
