I'll be handling this one (and hopefully the sequel). Should be able to get it done within a week or two if I keep on top of it.

for recommended unit stats

Oddleif

you recommend rank 2, but it requires rank 3 to reach the 8/8/5/3/2 line. For reference her starting line is 8/7/5/1/1

Same thing for Gunnwolf, should be rank 5, not 4, for the recommended stat lines

Will make the change. Should be noted though that the stats can be reached at the lower rank provided you have the right item equipped on the character.

bah , good to know about the items


i know this is minor but why not provide an ideal for the hakon's caravan? i know it is flexible but i get a little indecisive.

also in chapter 4 after the first random event

After the random event you will be stopped by trouble being caused in the caravan by Ekkill. Choose to try to resolve things peacefully to enter a scene with him. When Ekkill asks you what kind of man Rook is, you can answer however you like. After Ekkill tells you he is not above begging you will have five different options. Unfortunately, the best options here will cause your group to lose a minimal amount of morale, but you shouldn't drop below Normal Morale on the travel screen
You never provide what the best option is.

I did make a note of the characters best used in Hakon's caravan on the Unit Classes page. Hakon, Gunnulf and Mogr are the most useful of the lot and should be the main focus. Ludin and Yrsa can be reasonably decent as well if you want to pump a level or two into them but should be fine at rank 1 for the most part.

For good results late game - Rook w/3 Break & 3 Exertion + Farthingjord item gives him an armour break of 9. Makes him awesome for quickly bringing down some of the tougher stuff.

I guess I was hoping for more recommended rank and builds for the optional guys for Hakon's party.

Once you have won your third fight, you will get the item Calabilla (Rank 5 Item 2/5) and will go through a scene before going back to the village screen. Here you should buy enough supplies so they will last for 7-8 days before deciding to leave. As you leave you will be stopped by a group of fighters. Ask them what's happening in the city if you want more information then allow them to join to add Onef and Ekkill to your roster.
8 days was not enough to get me to the next town without dropping in to poor morale. I left the city with good morale and even with random events that added morale, I still could not make it to the next city without running out of supplies, or dipping into poor morale. I'd recommend at least 10 days worth.

Yeah, that section there is easily the toughest in terms of keeping your morale above normal. I'll change the recommended amount to 9-10. It is possible on 8 days worth but you have to get 2 specific random encounters to proc to make it viable.

I'll take a look when I review the most recent batch of changes Clown sent in. Formatting can get a little off occasionally, but it shouldn't take much to fix it.

Yeah, it's a problem that happens often where it double spaced everything for no reason
