|The Stage Coach is the location in the Town where you can recruit new Heroes. New heroes are the only thing in The Hamlet that is free.|
By upgrading the Stagecoach you can increase the available heroes for hire each week, increase your roster size to hire more heroes, or increase the level that fresh recruits start at.

The Stagecoach is your hero lifeblood. You'll need to recruit additional heroes to fill out a party of four. Drag and drop them into your roster. While you're here, spend some of your starting resources on UPGRADING the Stage Coach network. This will increase the number of heroes available here in the future. To upgrade, click the + symbol on the left and then click the upgrade.
The Stage Coach has three parts to upgrade: the Stage Coach Network, the Hero Barracks and Experienced Recruits.
Stage Coach Network
Upgrading the Stage Coach increases the available heroes for hire each week. The change will take effect after you return from your next quest. Note that regardless of the upgrade level, there will always be enough recruits to go on an expedition; for example if you only have a single adventurer in your roster, you'll have 3 recruits available even if this upgrade hasn't been purchased.
The Shieldbreaker DLC adds 1 more to the roster, now allowing for a maximum of 29, or 31 in Radiant Mode.
Upgrading this provides a chance of higher level recruits appearing in the stage coach. Recruits at higher levels will have their weapons, armor and skills upgraded to the max. While Heroes at Level 0 can have between 1-2 Negative and Positive Quirk each, for each Resolve Level the hero's minimum and maximum number of Quirks is Increased by 1. For example, a hero at resolve level 2 can have 3-4 Positive Quirks and 3-4 Negative Quirks, and will not have more or less than that.
New heroes will also have additional skills unlocked. Starting at resolve level 1, new recruits will have all their combat skills unlocked and an extra camping skill unlocked.
In Radiant mode the Hero Barracks gets two additional heroes to the roster. The differences in Radiant mode will be shown in parenthesis.
- Experienced Heroes Level 4 is exclusive to Radiant Mode.
* the Shieldbreaker DLC allows for 1 additional roster slot, making the game now range from 13 to 29.
Shard Mercenaries 
If you own The Color of Madness DLC, upon completing the second quest of the Farmstead and unlocking Endless Mode, the Stage Coach will have a new section for recruits known as Shard Mercenaries. These recruits are all level 6 and as such, they have all their combat skills and equipment maxed and they don't use a slot in your barracks. However, they come with a unique and impossible-to-remove negative Quirk called Shard Mercenary, which will prevent them from partaking in any mission other than the Farmstead's Endless Mission and at the end of it, each Mercenary will take 10% of the Comet Shards collected. They are useful for players at early stages in which they don't have enough strong heroes to partake the quest but lose usefulness when the player has better-leveled heroes, since the 10% fee and the inability to be used outside of the Farmstead makes them fall back in comparison to a non-mercenary hero of the same level.
