Good game, but a little problem.
Recently began playing this game in the Dark Ages society and it's been amazing, can't get enough of it. But it seems as if my enemy players can leave their hamlets and castles barely defended, if not unoccupied, and they'll be left alone by the independents (i.e wild animals). Whereas if I barely support some troops in my hamlets or farms my stack of five spearmen get trampled on by a horde of deers.

Is this a known problem or am I just missing something?

A farm takes 40 turns(nonwinter) to earn in the cost of keeping 5 spearmen to protect it, hamlet takes 20 turns(nonwinter) and so forth. Now deers and other nasty creatures will randomly attack your captured points while bandits will somewhat seek them out. Now you mentioned that the 5 spearmen will get trampled by a horde of deers. Then it all comes down to risk/cost vs income.

My own strategy is to defend capture points that helps me get my main ressources, can autospawn creatures for me or has trade points.

My strategy is garrison only most important sites, like big city, citadelts etc, and for the rest keep form one to three small/mid-sized armies on permanent patrol, going rounds and freeing sites captured by creatures. Those patrols are also make a reserve force, wich could be joined to main army as necessary.

I don't garrison at all, but actively cleanse the territory. I also win that way, because ... <long explanation , yada, yada, yada>

I wish I knew this at the start. I turned down three pyromancers before I figured "why not" as I had a load of gold sitting around. I see a little emblem at the button when sitting on the spawn and it offers me to burn it down. Thank christ for that. Good bye constant attacks of deers.
