Definitely one of the options, and probably used, too.

However, the Hazara Khan (IMG Kostaddic Sable people) trade mostly in overseas luxuries, not bulk grain. I think they lack the facilities to feed several thousand soldiers, even though they have no trouble providing required magical supply.

Easier to buy grain in Nochet or Rhigos. Karse isn't mainly a grain port, though, and lacks grain storage facilities at this scale.

Weapons and armour are difficult to provide from the south, but the requirements will be a lot less stringent than food.

At this time. Getting the stuff to Pavis leads the Lunars through Sartar...

Sufficient for outfitting the Karse naval assault.

That's Fazzur's plan. Tatius wants to do it by magic, Fazzur conquers.

Don't know about buddy. Sanuel may have been the best available mercenary not allied with Rikard.
