I think local prices should change reflecting a lack of supply inventory e.g. all the vendors charge more but blacksmiths should pay more for scrap. Towns need better fortifications. It's weird when the town is under siege but once you get by it's undefended. Some have good gates but other like Ardoris are undefended and always open. They definitely should be less frequent. They're too repetitive making what should be an exciting event kind of boring.
