This game is quite enjoyable to play. However, I would love to have a military side to this game. For example, build barracks or watchtowers and recruit soldiers to protect from raids from either pirates, natives or barbarian villages. Be awesome to have knights as your protection. Maybe a system where if you cannot train a knight, you could hire one and pay with food or other valuable resource. Sought of like a mercenary.
If that was added this would probably be one of the best games I would ever play!
