A bigger party size means more troops and bigger battles. This guide on How To Increase Party Size In Mount & Blade II Bannerlord tells you how you can increase your party size so that you’re able to carry a lot more troops in your army, alongside your Companions and other useful military tools.

Each unit in your army takes up part of your Party Size. For example, if you have a Party Size of 22, the most troops you can carry with you at any one time is 22. As such, you will struggle to fight much bigger armies or even similar sized armies if they have more skilled and valuable troops.

Increasing your Party Size limit is easy but slow. It’s tied to the Quartermaster ability which is part of the Steward skill in the Intelligence tree. Open your character panel with C and highlight Steward. Then, press the I icon near your characters portrait. This will explain what the Steward skill does, particularly the Quartermaster part. To level this skill up, ensure that you always have food for your soldiers. It’s best to have as many varieties of food as possible. This not only improves morale but levels the skill up faster.
