Just a bit of clarity on this as it caught me out. Anything below "normal morale" is classed as low morale and will
Void the achievement. You usually get 2 days with each morale state unless an event happens which affects morale.

I find this ties in with the not letting anyone starve to death achievement, just make sure on whichever play through you want this on that you spend the majority of your renown on food. Also if you make a decision that affects your supplies in a negative way, be sure to reload and change your decision. You can play around with decisions providing you don't continue to progress through the following text screens causing a new auto save. Try to avoid resting when morale is great as this wastes opportunities to keep your morale high. Also of note, at some markets the exchange rate of renown is very poor sometimes 1:1 as opposed to 1:5, try to avoid wasting renown on poor exchange rates unless you are desperate.

I found at times that I was literally scraping it and arriving at towns on the last day before running out. If you reload a previous save a few days prior I found that random events can happen where you acquire supplies. If you find your running dangerously low and your still a distance away from the next town this could be worth doing as it saved me on two occasions where I reloaded the previous save and acquired food from a random event, this giving me enough to make it to the next market. Hope this helps people out as this has potential to be frustrating and can catch you out if not careful at numerous points in the game.

Bear in mind that resting increased morale but uses a day of supplies, use your rest wisely.

Any extra ideas/thoughts please comment and I will amend. If you have to thumbs down please explain why.

Good luck
