So we have one character who's only one scenario from retiring, everyone is around level 4, and city prosperity is only 1. We are taking city events every chance we get, and aren't linking scenarios, so plenty of road events (fancy -3HP before you even start, anyone?). Prosperity just is not moving though.

Anything we should be doing? Not looking forward to my son's new unlocked class character starting at level 1 with the rest of us up in the 5 area....

More retiring characters - each one is a prosperity tick. Also,

Prosperity will come slow. There are some scenarios and events that boost it. Prosperity also increases when you retire characters. Another way is to

donate to the church.

As for a new character starting at level 1, don't worry too much about it. The difference between a level 4 and a level 1 character isn't as massive as in other games, and the monsters will scale back a bit. For me at least, discovering a new character is much more exciting than feeling slightly underpowered.

How does this increase prosperity?

Haha! I don't know if this is a spoiler or a recommendation, but I like it

I think that since retiring characters seemed pretty far away all the time, everyone kind of forgot about the option of
Spoiler (click to reveal)
opening envelopes, and B in particular
. But now I'm super curious

We’ve played like 5 scenarios and we’re already well above 2. Are you missing prosperity rewards for scenarios?

How many scenarios did you have with prosperity rewards? I've seen 1 or 2 max.

Although it depends on which path you take down the story line.
