These long marches over the hills and through the swamps mean that our material will wear out very fast. If we write down, how our soldiers can travel over land without always getting stuck in the undergrowth or sinking into the mud, the soldiers will have to mend their uniforms much less often.

Chasing away pirates, Barbarians and other villains will be much easier with professional soldiers! It might be more expensive than just making our citizens to soldiers in the event of war, but in exchange our troops will be much better trained with sword, spear and shield!
If we employ a civil servant, we can then not only pillage another town, but also use and manage it. In no time we will be using the wealth of others for our own gain and will let our own towns rise up with use of their resources.
Sulphur is a really wicked substance! And with every new mixture, we can get even more impact from this precious resource. A safe practice ground would allow our blasters to test their inventions, without including the surrounding buildings as involuntary targets into their experiments. With better gunpowders and explosives we will save huge amounts of sulphur!
This black mixture from the alchemists Kitchen can spark a fire with a loud bang and do truly devilish things! Now we can build metal tubes we can fill with this powder in order to shoot heavy balls through the air!
Our scientists have built a mechanical giant with muscles made of metal and a steaming heart! Only the keenest and most skilled soldiers can steer such a colossus, but it will strike fear on the battlefield!
Our iron is getting heavier and harder: Now we can even build barrels through which we can fire huge balls at our enemies! If we can even fire bombs from a long distance our enemies and their town walls will tremble in fear!
Our war machines are stronger and mightier than ever before and our armies are perfectly organized! Our civil servants managing the military have everything under control and thus the upkeep costs can be lowered.
