Market Exchange Rates

Excerpt from this article:

"Today I want to talk about the market. I've always wondered how the rates change every time you ask your merchants for help to fund your war effort. And since I failed to find anything relevant, I decided to figure it out myself. Actually, in the beginning I intended to title it "How Market Really Works" (!), but I will only cover buying and selling resources here, not the trade carts."

Below are all the times (in "GAME SECONDS")."

This article will reveal the real cost of every resource, unit, building and technology in the Pre-Castle Age."

How Monks Really Work

Excerpt from this article:

"With the release of two expert Castle Age strategies featuring Monks (the Sheriff’s SMUSH and Crexis and Methos_ST’s C&M Express), these preacher/healers have suddenly become all the rage. But how exactly do they work? What little is known of how the work comes from the kind posting of Ensemble Studios’ ES_Sandyman on AOKH. This post, combined with players’ anecdotal evidence, has come to form the generally accepted monk theory, and has provided the backbone to most strategic thinking of how monks work."

Benefits of Multiple Builders

Excerpt from this article:

"In AOE and ROR, n builders took T/n time to construct a building where T was the time required for a single builder. When you needed to make several buildings at once, it was often best to have all your builders on one building at a time. The advantage of this was that you could start using buildings before they are all complete while still finishing the last building in the same amount of time as if you had split your builders up."
