I'm at the end of a replay of the first Banner Saga game. I came out in a far better position than previous play throughs and I have an opportunity to buy a bunch more supplies. This is the first time I've felt like I might be over-buying.
So my question is, do supplies carry between the Banner Saga and Banner Saga 2? Or is this like a certain earlier village stay were you your situation after a chapter jump is just wildly different?
- I finished the game after spending some renown on promotions for the final battle; I have 25 renown left.
- I have 522 supplies, enough for 51 days
- The caravan is actually on the small side, with 290 varl, 94 fighters and 433 clansmen. (At least it feels small compared to the earlier Varl war caravan; I don't remember the basis of comparison from my other play throughs.)
- Boersgard market had over 200 supplies for sale; I bought none of them even though I could have bought all of them.
Do I get any benefit from having supplies at the end of the first Banner Saga? Should I just use renown to promote people now? Does renown carry over to the next game?
