Hello.In stronghold screen when i click hirelings menu it says under every hireling "currently unpaid" despite having plenty of coin .after i fire them then rehire them text dissapears.But if i quit the game and then load the same save,it says "currently unpaid" again.Also guest hirelings dissapears for good if i fire them but their bonuses stays.Not sure about the last part when i fire a regular hireling stronghold's prestige and security drops but when i fire a guest hireling there is no change.So either their bonuses doesnt apply or stack even after i dissmis them.Secondly after my companions return from off screen adventures text in the stronghold screen suggest there are some rewards in the treasury but it is always empty.Sorry for english it is not my first  language.

Same issue. Hirelings all become listed as unpaid whenever I launch the game and load a savegame.

Same problem here. I'm still unsure, if they protected my tax income anyway since i've lost quite a sum to the bandits.

Even though my hirelings list as unpaid it seems to still charge me every 5 days. Haven't tried hiring the special hirelings yet as I didn't want to pay their upkeep so can't speak to that bug.

I'm also experiencing the empty treasury. I've done two of those adventures and every time I check the treasury is empty.

By the way, I noticed hirelings make you have a net loss of money, since taxes are seemly tied to quest amount, but hirelings are tied to days passed, meaning that if you are a slow player, or rest a lot, or keep getting lost and moving between areas, you will lose lots of money.

 

Also if you are not completionist, again, lose lots of money.

 

And finally, even if you ARE completionist, theoretically at the end of the game the hirelings can drain your money forever, but you have no source of income (since you already finished all quests, thus taxes stopped, and nothing respawns, so there are no new enemies to loot and sell their stuff)

I have heard that there is atreasury box somewhere in the keep. (Some suggested collected taxes are stored there.) It is just speculation, but what if y payment from hirelings is deducted from this treasury and not from your party cash? Perhaps if you have to pay more for hirelings than you earn taxes than some of the hirelings get the "unpaid" status? Does any body know where this treasury chest is exactly?

 

I have found the treasury box, but I could not put money in it, so that is not the solution.

Yeah I rushed back to my keep to try and pay these people. Since I still get the bonus stats from having them around I guess they are being paid and its just a bug in the telling.

Hmm I just hit my first payday. It cost 300 cp and I had 6 hirelings. since they cost 10cp each a day I can only assume that a week is five days long ? Also even immediately after being paid they say currently unpaid. No one left though.

At the end of the game the game is over. Not sure how this is relevant

My hirelings are also currently unpaid and there are two i can't dismiss.

 

If I dismiss all of them, I still have 2/8 listed.

Got the "unpaid" bug as well, it seems like an UI error and not a mechanical one. 

 

What's a mechanical bug is when you auto-resolve and get your buildings trashed even when the attacking army is utterly insignificant. A manual resolve had them dead in 20 seconds with little to no input from my own team.

Yeah, hirelings seem to be a UI bug. As for the treasury I seem to get adventure money but no taxes.
