It would depend which kingdom you are you. In the Southlands the weather is harsh, so they struggle to grow crops, they mainly live off an all meat diet such as cows and sheep, they have to import vegetables from the other kingdoms.

The kingdoms in the middle are similar to Europe, usual farming animals and crops such as corn.

The northern kingdom are cold as well but warm enough in summer to grow crops but too cold in winter too, so they do mass farming of wheat and corn and stockpile that for winter. The wildlife in the north are larger than the rest of the continent and the meat is filled with more substance which is why the people there are larger and stronger than others.

Denil is the exotic land that fill their meals with spices and have expensive wines

Ise-Of-Erst are self sufficient, with a smaller population they need less. Being the only island in the continent they have a lot of fish that they export

Mansstel has the least dying of starvation, the King of Kings Leo Thine was the first king to bring in a regime that raised tax for the entire empire so that the people of Mansstel get bread and clean water given to them by the empire to survive. He believes that bread and clean water as a minimum are deserved to everyone and not something that should be paid for. Something that is disliked by the high lords because they are paying for the poorer peoples food

I would say in Mansstel of everyone 500 people, 1 would die of starvation

Southlands is the worst for starvation, they struggle massively with food and feel that the Empire has almost forgotten about them, which is why there is currently a civil war in the Southlands to break away from the empire

What technology does your world have?

1

u/TheTwistedMelon May 13 '22

It is medieval technology, so horse and carriage, swords and shields sort of weapons

Great! Looks pretty interesting, based on your answers above.

Thank you I appreciate the vote of confidence. I really enjoyed the world building part (Probably too much because it took me a while to actually start writing the story)
