Love this game! But I am baffled by a couple of things on when it comes to trading....
1. How many trade routes can I maintain at once? I know I can have more as I get bigger Issaries temples but what's the number? Where can I see it?
2. My clan market is "seasonal." What the hell does that mean? What other things might it say instead of seasonal and what do they mean?
I would appreciate any advice.
Lets answer question 2 first. The market being seasonal means that you have it once per season. This is an improvement on yearly (once per year, worst ranking) but not as good as weekly (once per week, best ranking).
What you want to do with trade routes isn't to get as many as possible (you tend to lose trading partners then, and that is wasted effort, as you had to spend a season to get that route), but get just enough such that your market is upgraded to weekly. Then you know you can manage all of your trade routes and keep the most profitable setup going.
You'll probably want a grand temple of issaries going eventually (can support three blessings).
