Mongols have a higher hunter gather rate. That’s cool, but here is something more interesting. What if instead of a higher gather rate, they had a higher carrying capacity?
This opens up a strategy where mongols send hunters long distance to grab all the deer or boar in an area. It also makes those hunters out in the open much more vulnerable to being attacked, and when killed, the pain of losing so much food would be much greater.
At the same time, if the mongols are successful, it makes people mad they stole all the deer. ESPECIALLY on island scenarios… Land 5 hunters on enemy land, yoink 20 trips worth of food, and sail away. Thats like… 7 deer?
