How To Start A Caravan In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord
Caravans provide automatic trade routes for income. In this guide on How To Start A Caravan In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord we explain the process of starting your first caravan as it can be difficult tracking down the right artisan NPC’s if you don’t know where to look.
A lot of the mechanics surrounding the Caravan system in the game are still unknown. There does not appear to be any way to interact with the Caravan.

How To Start A Caravan In Mount & Blade II BannerlordSelect a location. It’s currently unclear how much this influences the Caravan.

Once you reach the town you can select someone to speak to or find them while you are taking a walk in the town.
You need to speak to an Artisan, someone with a craft. For example, here I spoke with Caribos the Carpenter. As long as they have “name” “profession”, they should be able to start you up a caravan. Simply speak with them and ask to form a caravan in the town. It costs you around 15,000 Denar. You also need a companion who will travel alongside and protect the caravan.
At the moment, it appears the caravan can cost -200 to -400 per day to function. After a few in-game weeks it does begin to drop in cost and turn a profit but it’s a very slow burn. I would suggest, before investing in a caravan, that you create an alternative save.
