So I own a city and a castle, with a bunch of towns now. Currently im having problems keeping my army up, at the moment I have 70 people garrisoned in my castle and only 100 in my city, and I keep getting raided, thus losing them all, and having to go town to town, recruiting people up again. Is there any easier/faster way to get a big army than to go around recruiting people in villages and buying mercs in taverns? Its really frustrating owning a bunch of land and barely being able to defend it.

I know how you can cheat to hire as large a group as you want from a single merc in the tavern, I set my groups to exactly 100 per tavern.
However if you dont want to cheat then I suppose you would have to do what your doing but focus on one town or one castle and get 200 - 300 in it so it will stay safe then grab another and do the same etc.

Do you have any lords in your faction? Because they will help a lot. And also, you should let one of them be Marshall until you want to control the army. Often times the Marshall will gather an army to go and chase off invaders. This allows you to hunt down enemies and build up your own army while not having to worry so much about the kingdom. But yeah, there really is no quick way to gather an army, just ways to keep them from dying as much.
