A Camp Can be built be laborer and worker

2housing space
Low hp

And can train Mercenaries
acts like a factory that has limited comstructions but is seperated from other factories
At the start build limit for camps are 3 camps and increases limit by 1 per castle built
Is it possible to code?

And Im still reaserching about other Mercenaries to be trained by this camp some examples are Celtic Greek and also germanic mercenaries Ill hust learn about them for a few days

Use

When you're going to war build these clise to the battlefield or nearby enemy base to easily train reinforcements

I'd like some Neutral mercenary camps what are generated along TCs
-far from starting point and few (1-2 max depending map size)
and train neutral units (what wander wander around camp) what you can convert with couriers.

Tabern-mercenaries reclute center

When coming with new unit idea - first look at existing ones in proper subforum of New upgrades.
When nothing similar exists - create new topic.

One question: Would it make sense for a camp to facilitate the trade of money for arms?

A post office would be more aesthetically unique than a buildable camp and would "in an imaginary plane" hire arms for sale. It could also produce money couriers as they are the only units that can sustain their demand.

Post office might sound too modern, so I think "Postal Exchange" would be a more fitting name for a building.

For me camps don't make structural sense. Camps are made for quick and temporary shelter before armies face off. They are not used for recruitment or paying armies like in government owned institutions. Postal exchange could branch off and splinter into more uses like researching the writing tech, while a camp is just a camp, doesn't do anything special.

Edit: A guild during medieval era was defined as an association of workers with specific skills.

In AoS we have two kinds of resources time and building limits. Building a camp can be understood as sacrificing some resources, which normally goes into other buildings to employ mercenary company (or earlier some lord or leader of group of people).
As mercenaries are (by the nature of their doings) always temporary they do not build offices, but only organize camps.
So this would mean, that normally one can only hire most common mercenaries and by employing them specifically (building a camp) - access to more specialized/better soldiers of fortune is allowed.
Training money couriers would still make sense there.

Post office is too modern - it's the thing of 17th century. Even first posted couriers existed sometime around late 16th cent.

not sure if this has been mentioned, but in world of warcraft for example, taverns are neutral structures that any player can have access to regardless of team. obviuosly in Aos they would need to act as Tcs.

Then how about Make it just like in Warcraft(btw I LOVE warcraft) have it generate automatically then when you send a unit beside it you can open up its UI like assassin ability but you cant claim the building and only moneycouriers can enter and uses it as a money value and you can train mercenary units inside
