Granary





The Granary stores all of the food of the Castle. You can see the amount of food available by left clicking on it. To alter the amount of food, click on the left or right arrow whilst the granary is selected. The Granary will also have an impact on popularity and honour as well. If you click on the left arrow, it will decrease the food rations which will also decrease the popularity of your Castle.

If the click on the right one, it will have the reverse effect. You can also see which types of food there are available by clicking on the smaller arrow on the right, which will also provide an overview of the Honour multiplier currently in effect and the amount of Honour which you are receiving.
