Manor Lords: Disease, explained

Once you begin seeing the fruit of your efforts in Manor Lords – that is, houses being built at x16 time – you will soon find out the hard way that there is a status effect on your villagers that you will probably want to take care of as soon as possible: disease.

You see, while diseases can appear to manifest in your town through mere chance, the thing that triggers it is a lack of food variety. After all, a balanced diet does make the difference. This will cripple your townsfolk, preventing them from doing any type of job for a short time. And while these villagers will cure themselves through time, the results of not having available villagers to gather resources can be catastrophic.

Fortunately, there is a way to cure disease in Manor Lords besides having a varied assortment of foods: get some Herbs!

Now, Herbs aren’t naturally found in the wild like you would find wildlife or Stone mines. To get Herbs, you will first have to build a Forager’s Hut, which will only cost one Timber – make sure to chop down some trees, you will need it! Now, the Forager’s Hut on its own will not do the trick, you will need to add a Herb Garden. This is tricky to get since you will need the following resources:

  • 25x Regional Wealth: Acquired through trading or by passive income when upgrading Burgagae Plots to Level 2.
  • 2x Planks: Process Timber at a Sawmill.

Once you have added your Herb Harden to your Forager’s Hut, you will be able to get a decent amount of Herbs to treat people suffering from disease. Since Regional Wealth is limited at the start of your playthrough, I suggest spending money on adding the Herb Garden first. Otherwise, your villagers will suffer from disease and stop your expansionist ideas from materializing.
