Re: what causes prosperity to drop?
I don't know. I have seen it discussed before on the forums and on webchat, but the answers are not very clear. I understand that there is a large random component - like the stock market, but I think that monsters landing on the town square affect prosperity, so if you clear the monsters, or ward them off with garrisons, that might help. Neglected towns, and ones that get attacked often also drop in prosperity, so visit and trade often.

On the other hand, Tuonela has many high prosperity NPC towns that seem to be doing just fine on their own.
