how about there be captains in the game. There would be two types of captains and people can have one of each. The attack captain would improve attack trained troops and spies in many ways. The defence captain would in turn improve defence trained troops and sentries in same ways as attack captains would. They would make the following improvements: maximize damage for defence or attack, increase the ratings of their respective personnel, improve gold generation from their respective personnel, and decrease casualities and equipment damage. They will also have special abilities to enhance their stats(which are the things that would determine the value of their improvements). They can also gain experience and levels, which would increase their stats and special abilities. Also, they themselves would have armor, hitpoints, and deal damage in battle, so they have a chance of dying and also increase the overall damage potential of the defence or attack. There would be four different levels of "packages" that would improve the captains stats. In other words, packages would be equipment for captains. Packages would be expensive and would contain aides for the captain, musicans, flagbearers, docters, blacksmiths, and personal equipment for the captain. There also be an acadamy that could hold a certain amount of experience that would be given by current captains of your army and given to replacements if you need one.
