Your army's cooks know exactly how to give new courage to the warriors and heroes in the encampment: A glass of wine and a stew, just like mum used to make! If they take the evening to remember what they are fighting for, enemies will find it very hard to wear them down.
Cooks are very useful for improving your army's morale during battle.
During battle, Cooks deploy in the reserve slots, out of the main battle lines.
As Cooks deploy out of the main battle lines, they never use their weapons, and can not be killed either.
Cooks do not move to the front battle line if not filled, so if you have no units except Cooks or other auxiliaryunits in a battle, they will withdraw.
Cooks recover 1 morale point for every single cook each round, which means if you have 10 Cooks then you can recover 10 morale points max every round.
You can place unlimited Cooks on the battlefield, which means that their size of 1 has no meaning on the battlefield.
