How to make money (regional wealth) in Manor Lords

Although you start a new game of Manor Lords with a small amount of money, known locally as Regional Wealth, you’ll likely run out of funds within a few months. Luckily, you can always earn more by trading, defeating bandits, or upgrading your houses.

Let’s figure out how to get money in Manor Lords.

How to make money in Manor Lords

Money in Manor Lords is called Regional Wealth because it is the income of the entire region, not your own. To increase Regional Wealth, you must export goods, improve your houses (plots) or destroy bandit camps. The latter allows you to send loot to your region, which can easily increase your Regional Wealth by several hundred, but fighting bandits can also result in losses.

Upgrading houses is a much more reliable way to gain Regional Wealth. Tier 2 houses generate one Regional Wealth per household per month. Level 3 houses generate two Regional Wealth per family per month. Homes with living space extensions can accommodate two families on the 2nd level and four on the 3rd level, so you can earn a maximum of eight Regional Wealth per home.

How to make money through trading

Here’s how to make money by trading in Manor Lords:

  • Don’t worry about money when starting a new game. For now, you just need resources to develop your region.
  • Once you’ve built a village with a logging camp, a lumber camp, a hunting camp, a gatherer’s hut, a warehouse, a granary, and plenty of houses (try to get at least two “spare” burgage lots for new villagers to move in), it’s time to place a trading post . Find it on the “trade” tab in the construction menu.
  • You can now export any surplus goods such as planks, hides or berries. If you open the trade menu, you will see export and import prices on the right side of the menu (export on the left, import on the right). You can change the product status to “export” on the left side, in the drop-down menu. Enter the number of items you want to keep – in the middle. This is the base supply (if you have 34 skins and a supply of 20, a maximum of 14 skins will be sold).

Keep in mind that selling end products generates more Regional Wealth than selling resources. For example, hides bring 4 units of Regional Wealth, and leather brings 6 units. Turn leather into shoes and they will yield 8 Regional Wealth. There’s nothing wrong with selling basic resources early in the game, but eventually try to move up to final products.

How to get money – Treasury

If you want to hire mercenaries or create a new settler camp, you will need Treasury funds instead of Regional Wealth.

The Treasury is essentially money from your Regional Wealth converted into the Treasury through taxes. If you build an estate, you can open the “taxes” menu and enter a percentage for the “land tax”. Every month, a portion of your Regional Wealth will be converted into the Treasury.
